Installation / Re: SOLVED: getcwd, leafpad, vi
« Last post by paxmark1 on February 18, 2020, 03:59:43 pm »
I use lxterminal in wayand, - Sway in Sid.   Also available in my several years old sparky lxqt. 

I can confirm  that leafpad locked up my old sparky lxqt yesterday.  reminds me I have to ssh in to fix.   I will remove it, it was nice and light, but I will say goodbye.

Suggestions / Re: swap space install options in MinimalCLI/advanced-installer
« Last post by paxmark1 on February 18, 2020, 03:57:09 pm »
I started to post but I am only able to react negatively. 

Not every possible combination is possible in the initial install in any distro to the best of my knowledge.  In linux we have a very advanced thing called the terminal to modify things to our desire after the install.  Failing that large sums of cash to the developers can work wonders.

2 med passers quit, I am working insane hours.

Thanks for the inxi and using the code button.
I could have had you add "inxi -A  --usb"  to get more info on your sound card and usb components.    output of lspci  would show some of your other components. 

I looked into the kxstudio.  Openbox and your usage of the stable version  are good choices  when combining an outside repo. 
Myself I always disable via    "##"  deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org/ buster main non-free    ever since sox  finally got started compiling with mp3 support in Debian. (maybe 8 years)  BUT - your problems appear to not involve audio.   

I have no ideas to easily give you, maybe others will have some ideas.
peace out.

From that link: "The error code is obvious: someone removed your current working directory" That's strange, given that this is a new installation.
I install sparky quite often and I never seen this specific error code. My guts tell me you messed up something. Despite that I will look into it. Feed my with more details so I could try to reproduce this issue.

I suppose LXTerminal is also extinct
On the contrary, lxterminal is breathing and kicking. Someone ported it to GTK3

Thanks for the reply.

1) From that link: "The error code is obvious: someone removed your current working directory" That's strange, given that this is a new installation.

2) I should have remembered that Leafpad comes from the dinosaur LXDE, with LXQt taking its place. I suppose LXTerminal is also extinct, though it is present in Sparky minimal.

3) I'll remember this one.

Hi.
1). https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/477872/error-sh-0-getcwd-failed-no-such-file-or-directory-when-i-try-to-upgrade-de/477938

2)Leafpad is based on GTK2 liberties, and GTK2 libs have been abandoned. Try mousepad instead.

3)try sudo apt install vim

Installation / SOLVED: getcwd, leafpad, vi

I just built a minimal (Openbox) system. I realize that Openbox is not Cinnamon, KDE, or MATE, but there were three things I found strange:

1) During the first update, the error mesage "getcwd() failed" appeared many times. WTF?

2) Leafpad, my favorite minimalist text editor, was not available. I thought this was strange given that it's available in pretty much every distribution. Is it available?

3) I've used vi since my days with Unix. I depend upon it in terminals and consoles. It wasn't included. Just for laughs I tried "apt install vi" but that did not work. I thought it was standard in all Linux flavors. build-essential was already installed, so that's not a solution. Why isn't it included?
