Re: Testing Lithium iso discussion

Don’t worry about the lockfile.

The message below is an x11 error. Not sure what the issue is. A google search shows all sorts if suggestions (nvidia, incorrect DISPLAY variable, etc).
Do you get any clues if you set verbosity=3 in jgmenurc?

Does the same happen with similar apps such as dmenu and rofi?

Re: Testing Lithium iso discussion

echo $DISPLAY shows :50
dmenu_run launched from terminal appears to be fine from within the x2go session.

Also noticed that when the x2go session starts there is no wall paper or tint2. Running nitrogen --restore will bring up the wallpaper with the following errors (the host machine has 3 monitors attached).

(nitrogen:8139): Gtk-WARNING **: 15:05:02.384: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "adwaita",

After tint2 is running I can click on the Main Menu Launcher and the jgmenu displays on the host machines second monitor (1) and not within the x2go session.
I have used x2go to remote multiple BL machines prior to Lithium and did not experienced the wall paper, tint2 issues.
Again, this is a very minor issue as I have now customized the obmenu for my needs.

Re: Testing Lithium iso discussion

I think it would be good to have a shortcut to root terminal, or at least a shortcut to helpfile about editing poolkit, so one self can edit policy and allow pkexec run a terminal.

I can start root terminal with workaround:
In user terminal:

sudo su -
exit
sudo lxterminal & 

....

Also a helpfile about running application as root, would be good.

Re: Testing Lithium iso discussion

^ An argument against that idea is that "a little knowledge can be dangerous". That is, making it easy for someone to use applications as root, without being aware of the possible consequences, might not be adviseable.

Those who have taken the trouble to learn something about it should be able to use pkexec themselves. Opinions on this may vary!

But some info and warnings about running program as root, and why / how it is restricted?

Before I could not launch synaptic with pkecec, thought it was not allowed. But I must have misstyped password, for now it was ok.
I did edit policy for pkexec for a year ago, but have forgot howto. Have been thinking that I must take time and reread about it, but time slips...

It is a delicate balance. GParted and GDebi is on the menu, but not synaptic...
Maybe it should be little more easy for a new user to add a new package?

BTW, the meny choice Applications => Systemtools => Tint2 (panel), gives a new tintpanel, that is not as pleasant as default one.

As for launching a terminal emulator as root, why not just launch a regular terminal emulator and then either get root powers with sudo, or open a root shell with 'sudo su -' or a variant?

Hmmm, forgive my old tired eyes. The difference between gmrun => synaptic and gparted, is maybe by intent. When starting parted, password is required, bot synaptic starts without admin priviliges.

I have solved it. Many other dists, have a shortcut for "Root Terminal". But, it's no big deal...

Synaptic doesn't require admin privileges in order to run - they are only required for the equivalent apt/aptitude/apt-get tools. You don't need sudo for apt-cache <option> for example.

Am I misunderstanding the question?

Ah, did not knew that gave right to start x-apps. Thanks.
Does poolkit control which apps it is possible to start from thereafter?

rachel@TyrellCorp:~$ pkexec synaptic

Which configfile controls which apps user can run with admin rights?

I just tested another vm. After a coupe of minutes there was a message, roughly: Could not get exclusive locking ...
I was runing an upgrade on that, had forgotten that. (CPU-load 100%)
On a third vm, it worked, took maybe 20 s. to start synaptic...

I know that gmrun => "pkexec synaptic", did not funktion before (on Lithium). I thoght it was by intent. Has any bunsen-configs ben changed?

Or, maybe it only is working and hard to say why it did not work before...

Re: Testing Lithium iso discussion

@rbh, I can't advise regarding VM. I hate the abstraction of a VM so I prefer to add disc partitions and boot to the test OS on real hardware.

I realize that virtual machines are very useful. But I hate them, they're posers to me.

It's like watching somebody pass me and my fixie on an electric bicycle.

Re: Testing Lithium iso discussion

Now on my old IBM T43. Migrated from Helium to Lithium when dev repo became available.
Pkexec terminator/lxterminal gives "Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused".
But "pkexec synaptic" works.

Looking through /etc/polkit-1/ and "man polkit",has not made me any wiser. I will reread https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Polkit, but I think I need "Polkit for Dumies"...

'pkexec bl-terminal-emulator' should be working though, which is set by BL.

You should have looked at the filepath I gave you previously ^^^: /usr/share/polkit-1/. Have a look particularly at /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.bunsenlabs.pkexec.policy - it should give you enough information to hack your own policy (if you really need one).

This is a bit of a gnarly subject, but we do not provide polkit support for pkexec bl-terminal-emulator. This came after a long discussion of the (de)merits of starting X apps as root, and the compromise we reached was to allow pkexec bl-text-editor  and pkexec bl-cli-editor (the latter opens a terminal emulator with a text editor inside). Thunar, synaptic and gparted already provide their own polkit files. (A user can add any others of course.)

This is because ~/.config/openbox/autostart has changed name. When running x2goclient, choose "bunsenlabs-session" rather than "openbox" or "openbox-session". Or create a new ~/.config/openbox/autostart file. @s-rod solved this, but thought the answer should be included here for reference.

Re: Testing Lithium iso discussion

Installed on my Acer S7-392 and everything is great with one exception -- light-locker sometimes freezes up.  I initially thought it was the power manager but the last time it happened right after trying to sign back in and accidentally typing the wrong password.  When it freezes, I have to ssh in and restart lightdm.  I had no such problem with helium.

Thoughts, ideas?

Hello,

Maybe not the right place for this post, but I have Theme suggestion for the next major release of BunshenLabs.
I always have believed that the first look of the distro should be beautiful and simple, so people would like to use it.

BUNSHENLABS SIMPLE
Tint2+Conky

Clean & Simple


Bunshen1
Bunshenlabs simple theme by Dendrobats
Bunshenlabs simple theme by Dendrobats

With Paper icons
Bunshenlabs simple theme by Dendrobats

Files Tint2+Conky

Images should be copied in usr/shar/tint2
Any icon theme can be used I use Majove-CT

@Dendrobats This looks very nice indeed. In my opinion, the paper icons look better than the other ones.

Does this properly scale with resolution, and work with multiple screens?
