    I do sincerely thank you:grinning:. And saying that I’m not all that good with Linux does sound like me:smile:. I may know what I’m doing in one area, but I certainly lack it in others! I mean, I only know about five lines of code by heart:smile:. They would be

    • sudo pacman -Syu
    • sudo pacman -Syyu
    • sudo pacman -Scc
    • sudo pacman -S name of package
    • killall -9 latte-dock (for when I’m using a DE other than KDE)

    Thank you once again:smile:. But who knows what the future holds? Everyone has potential. And you probably know WAY more than I do in another field. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses.

  • OFF TOPIC
    After my first and only breakage, in a 2.5-year time, I made it a habbit of cloning my disk once a week, using clonezilla.
    So, if and when something happens, i will be able to restore it exactly the way it was.

    Well done, keegan.

  • Thank you for the compliments, @anarch! I too have made it a habit to back up my system due to breaking it (several times actually:smile:) in the past. Only in my case I use Timeshift. Is clonezilla more of a command line tool or is this assumption incorrect?

    It actually is a very simple GUI tool, in its non advanced mode.
    It is next, next, next, next, done, exit. You can easily take a rough idea on youtube.
    Of course I keep my cloned system in an external disk, not inside a dedicated file.

  • @Keegan Nice work!
    I would love to have a minimal menu, where you can find the rescue tools!
    I use the systemrescuecd for long time:

    http://www.system-rescue-cd.org/

    It is way overpacked with tools, but good to take a look for you!

    I can try to put my power to the project if it is needed!

    I tried to add it (obmenu I think?) bbut it did not show up anywhere when I tested the ISO. This was the one issue I have with it right now.

    That would be great! My project is here:

  • @ Keegan
    Congratulations on your first rescue iso!
    I could not check it yet. This night I have downloaded the iso, but it seems to be too small and does not work. I have very slow internet and shall try a new download next night again.

    I tried to add it (obmenu I think?) bbut it did not show up anywhere when I tested the ISO. This was the one issue I have with it right now.

    Obmenu is a gui-editor for ‘~/.config/openbox/menu.xml’. Could it be, that mkarchiso only includes the settings of the root folder? Then you should either copy the edited ‘~/.config/openbox/menu.xml’ to ‘/root/.config/openbox/’ or tell mkarchiso in some other way to include your personal settings.

    I might consider using clonezilla myself then.

    I have been using clonezilla for years now on linux and windows partitions. It has never failed and saved my systems several times. If you want to use it efficiently you should have ‘/home/’ on a seperate partition to keep the images small. To back up your settings and data I recommend ‘Back in Time’, which uses hardlinks.

    thank you for that useful info! It really helps :).

    This night I have downloaded the iso, but it seems to be too small and does not work.

    It should be a little over 1 GB if that helps ;)

Then you should either copy the edited ‘~/.config/openbox/menu.xml’ to ‘/root/.config/openbox/’ or tell mkarchiso in some other way to include your personal settings.

    Hmmm… I might have to get @joekamprad in on this one. That sounds a bit complicated for me.
