i was trying many options and not one works ... means i was not even able to install one of those ... this was the only one that i was able to install ... but ... now, i don't remember -- for your question i think that it was probably installed from some place at linuxmint.

How can i get mintstick for Devuan?.

I need to rewrite the subject because i'm convincing that the problem is that Devuan Ascii is missing something for this hardware, a firmware or something, it is not only a problem with xfce4-panel or VLC media, it is with the whole system, now it shot down by itself!, i did nothing, something is very wrong.

I tried another ISO devuan_ascii_2.0.0_amd64_cd-1.iso from a different mirror:  devuan.contrast.network with the same catastrophic results ... it is worse, it is not stable not even after re-initiate the system.

And, yes, of course, i changed the sources.list ...

Any way thank you very much to all of you for the help ...


Hi,

i have two problems with the xfce4-panel 4.12.1, first when i open any windows i can't reach the up right corner to close the window because the panel is obstructing the top side and the other thing is that everything added to the panel it is just agglutinating on the left side, i'm not able to fix anything at the right side.

Thank you very much for any help.

Hi,

I'm not able to install Devuan ascii from:

https://devuan.org/get-devuan

This is the iso in question:

devuan_ascii_2.0.0_amd64_dvd-1

[4.7 GB]

Those are the mirrors i tried:
   
mirror.math.princeton.edu/pub/devuan/

ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/devuan/

I tried all the options from the installer, graphic and not graphics.

After the steps: language, location, map key, i always got this message/error:

Hi,

Tricks not always works. I went to the section: “theme”, from this document, i did as they said:

# nano /etc/default/grub


GRUB_THEME="/usr/share/grub/themes/starfield/theme.txt"

It says later that:

"you will see Found theme: /usr/share/grub/themes/starfield/theme.txt in the terminal.»

It never happened:

I'm agree with you golinux, sometimes that is the only way, it happened to me before that ... and it is not going be the last time that ... cool

cynwulf, of course i tried, but it doesn't work here ... may be there is something wrong with the way he is asking for the installation of his grub, there is another user having problems too with ... sad

#13 Re: Off-topic » How to install a Grub from gnome-look.org?. » 2018-11-21 15:32:12

Well, in the mean time i already installed another grub from gnome-look.org https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1252310/ [just i don't like it] the instructions are very clear and i was able to do the task:

Install:
 
Download and extract Anonymous-Hope.zip >
 
Copy the extracted folder to /boot/grub/themes >
 (use 'sudo mkdir /boot/grub/themes' if you dont have a 'themes' folder)
 
Add the following line to /etc/default/grub >
 GRUB_THEME="/boot/grub/themes/Anonymous-Hope/theme.txt"
 (use 'sudo gedit /etc/default/grub')
 
Update your grub.cfg >
 (use 'sudo update-grub')
 
If you did everything rite, you will see:
 Generating grub configuration file ...
 Found theme: /boot/grub/themes/Anonymous-Hope/theme.txt
 
Done!

I don't understand why the author of [Griffin Grub] is doing something different, more complicated, at the last commentary he said: "You should have run the install.sh script for installing".

In other way it looks to me that there are different ways or methods of installation, there is not a general rule or wherever, that is what bring confusion to me ...

Thanks!

#14 Re: Off-topic » How to install a Grub from gnome-look.org?. » 2018-11-21 13:02:52

I'm not sure about the instructions, this is what i did:

keos@kaos:~$ LANG=C chmod +x Install.sh
chmod: cannot access 'Install.sh': No such file or directory
keos@kaos:~$ 

#16 Re: Off-topic » How to install a Grub from gnome-look.org?. » 2018-11-20 16:08:06

That's the problem for me, i don't understand this instructions, the file is not there ... well, where is?

Hi,

I have been trying to install a new grub from www.gnome-look.org in particular the one called:

Griffin Grub Remix 1.5

https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1237117/

This are the instructions:

####INSTALLATION

1-Move the extracted file to /boot/grub/themes (create if not present)

-- I created this file as #thunar, it was not possible as a normal user to move the file extracted to 'themes'.

2-Make the "Install-ubuntu.sh" file executable by "chmod +x Install.sh" and Run the script by "sudo ./Install.sh"(For Debian or Ubuntu and their derivatives)

'Install.sh' is a file that is inside Griffin-Grub-Remix but I got this problem:

root@kaos:/home/keos# LANG=C chmod +x Install.sh
chmod: cannot access 'Install.sh': No such file or directory
root@kaos:/home/keos#

I never did something like this before, i suppose i'm doing wrongness ... sad

i will appreciate any help with this ...

Thanks!

It never works. Most of the icon/applications that are coming with Devuan can be adding to xfce panel but not all of them and if you install something (not from synaptic) most the time is a big problem. They are not at the menu neither ...

i was trying this:

I created a launcher, then i was looking for the GUI:

keos@kaos:~$ whereis youtube-dl-gui
youtube-dl-gui: /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl-gui

And:

i found another website: https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1247545/ i'm just working on this, till now ... nothing yet  cool

I have been trying to get different grubs with not result -- it is a bit complicated.

The only one that i can get to follow instructions is: https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1252310/ i did it exactly as he said here:

Install:

Download and extract Anonymous-Hope.zip >

Copy the extracted folder to /boot/grub/themes >
(use 'sudo mkdir /boot/grub/themes' if you dont have a 'themes' folder)

Add the following line to /etc/default/grub >
GRUB_THEME="/boot/grub/themes/Anonymous-Hope/theme.txt"
(use 'sudo gedit /etc/default/grub')

Update your grub.cfg >
(use 'sudo update-grub')

If you did everything rite, you will see:
Generating grub configuration file ...
Found theme: /boot/grub/themes/Anonymous-Hope/theme.txt

Done!

And i know i did "everything rite" because ...

root@kaos:/home/keos# LANG=C update-grub
Generating grub configuration file ...
Found theme: /boot/grub/themes/Anonymous-Hope/theme.txt
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-4.9.0-8-amd64

done
root@kaos:/home/keos# 

But when i restart the system the old grub with MXlinux is coming back again and again ... mad mad mad
