Wayland and PipeWire are poised to be the future of Linux display and audio servers, respectively. Today’s tutorial will check how to use Wayland and PipeWire in Nitrux.

In Nitrux, we utilize OpenRC as the init-system; it differs from the more widely used systemd software suite.

In today’s tutorial, we’ll check how to create service files (scripts) for use with OpenRC.

Continuing with this tutorial series about service files, today, we’ll look at a simple and comparable way to make “user services” available in Nitrux.

I added after install my encrypted home, I get the password prompt with openrc, but it never works, which could be caused by the keymap, which was changed in /etc/conf.d/keymaps is there another way ? thanks
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
@lanterne:matrix.org How many encrypted partitions do you have?

uri_herrera: just one
it's /home

@UriHerrera
@lanterne:matrix.org Ok, please create an issue at the bug tracker

uri_herrera: thanks, though i'm not sure if the keyboard is recognized, or the keymap is bad
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
@lanterne:matrix.org Unless you use a Bluetooth keyboard, it is recognized. The default locale of the keyboard in GRUB (that's what you see when you enter the passphrase) is very likely the English (American) keyboard.

oh ok, I'll try to change it in grub
thanks
i thought it was the keymap entered in conf.d/keymap

@UriHerrera
@KrychuTM Without further information, we don't know what the problem is. Start Calamares in debug mode with sudo -E calamares -d. Copy the output to a text file and add it here.

Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
@XnasYTPL If you're having problems with Bottles ask their developers, we do not develop Bottles.

@XnasYTPL
@UriHerrera and how to i install wine because of pkcon or smth like that
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera

@XnasYTPL We do not support 32-bit packages; we recommend Bottles; however, as I mentioned, we do not develop Bottles. If you're having problems with Bottles, let their developers know. Also, you didn't mention how you're installing Bottles, so I assume you used the last available AppImage when you said that you don't see the UI.

With that being the case, Bottles developers haven't updated the AppImage, and last I heard, they were working on a new one. In the meantime, they are promoting Flatpak as their "offical" installation method. So, use the Flatpak.

where can I find info re default usernames and passwords? I tried searching everywhere but could not find it. One post on the web indicated it was "Nitrux" and clear password, but that did not work. BTW, I was only trying this from the live CD
I really want to give this a go because the range of systemd-free distros out there is scarily small
I was able to fire up "station" and then "sudo bash" and get a root command line. But that is a sketchy way of doing things.
I was pleased to run "ps |grep systemd" and get nothing. Not sure too many other distros can do that (maybe alpine and adelie)
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
@systemdlete You can find that information in the Notes link in the Release Announcement. It is nitrux, and there's no password.
systemdlete
@systemdlete
UriHerrera, I tried that, but it did not work
systemdlete
@systemdlete
I just rebooted nitrux live and it works from a console. Thanks.
At any rate, in "station," I can just type "sudo bash" and I get in as root.
My only criticism so far is that it would be nice to have some tool tips on the desktop.

How to do i actually install snap? ❯ sudo pkcon install snap
Resolving [=========================] Command failed: The selected packages may already be installed.
❯ sudo snap install hello-world
sudo: snap: command not found
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
@RaviVarma-Bandi You can't. We do not use systemd and thus Snaps are not supported.

i actually need to install spotify, eclipce, codium
flatpak is not properly supporting,

❯ flatpak install spotify
Looking for matches…
error: No remote refs found similar to ‘spotify’

Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
@RaviVarma-Bandi Because you haven't added a source (a remote as it's called) for Flatpak.
Ravi Varma Bandi
@RaviVarma-Bandi
I see could you help in adding them?
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
@RaviVarma-Bandi Please read the Notes link in the Release announcement.

@UriHerrera got it.
Facing another issue internet is suddenly getting offline and wifi tray is going empty again I need to restart the system then it is reappearing.
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera

@RaviVarma-Bandi That can be a number of things. Ranging from your wireless chip and what driver its in use to your ISP not supporting IPv6.

You may add information about your wireless chip to this issue: Nitrux/nitrux-bug-tracker#67

hi. I'm on artix and i'm trying to write the latest nitrux iso image. I tried with dd and some other image writing tools, ever with the same result: it is created a small 1,6 mb partition on the usb stick, containing only this file: /efi/boot/bootx64.efi

PSA: We have delayed the release of new installation media for Nitrux 2.3.0. Users can install Nitrux 2.2.1 and upgrade the distribution to be up-to-date with newer installation media.

To upgrade, do the following.

pkcon refresh && pkcon get-updates
pkcon install openrc-config nitrux-repositories-config
pkcon install openrc
sudo reboot

Then after rebooting, do the following.

pkcon update
pkcon repair

To remove the previous kernel, do the following. Be aware that the Nvidia proprietary driver may not support Linux 5.19 yet.

pkcon remove --autoremove linux-image-5.18.14-xanmod1-x64v2 linux-headers-5.18.14-xanmod1-x64v2

PSA: We have pushed new packages for the GNU C Library to our repositories.

To update, do the following.

W: Due to the nature of this change, we advise users to use the root account for this special occasion.

sudo -i
[as root]
apt -yy install libc6
exit

Cont. 🧵👇

We want to emphasize that users should use PackageKit (pkcon) to install Debian packages.

The reason to use APT on this occasion is that PackageKit inexplicably fails to upgrade this package.

Disclaimer: We do not develop PackageKit, or its backend, APTCC.

Note: For new installations, remember that the package: openrc-config needs to be updated before continuing with the rest of the updates.
