I just realized the image I have is from the 27th but there is an updated one from the 28th. I will try that.

@njakes_gitlab
The updated image worked. It must have been hanging on boot with the previous one. Closing the lid and opening it again will allow the nouveau driver to work.

@njakes_gitlab I'm glad that the new ISO solved your problem. By the way, what laptop is it?

@njakes_gitlab
It is the Lenovo Legion 15

Hello, I have heard that that nitrux is very AppImage focused. Are AppImages accessable to download via Discover?
I just installed Nitrux in a virtual machine and cannot find any mentioning of AppImages.

@Sarcasmo220
@motofckr9k:matrix.org A good place to find appimages is through appimagehub.com which has a large collection that is easy to search or browse through categories

@UriHerrera I did some research on getting the full disk encryption to work in Calamares. I spoke to someone on the Calamares IRC channel and they said the openrcdmcryptcfg module is meant to be used with dracut module rather than the initramfs module. Since the dracut module would need to be configured, I wasn't able to do a full fix. They provided an example of Redcore Linux configuration as an example of the modules that could work

Hi. There are tutorials; they're in the blog. They're tagged in the category Tutorial. There are also articles, changelogs, news, and weekly summaries for Maui. Perhaps you missed that?.

What do you need to do that requires specific documentation?.

@omerhijazi404
on how to install it?
theres no article about installing nitrux in tutorial category
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
@omerhijazi404 Is this the first time that you use Linux?
Omer Hijazi
@omerhijazi404
No I've been using Linux from 1 year now along with windows
I need to use znx and stuff to install it rigtt?
Or just create a boot able device from the iso?
Omer Hijazi
@omerhijazi404
Can anyone help with the above?
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
The ISO that you download from the website does not include, support, or work with znx. The uso that you download from the website uses a traditional installer, in this case Calamares.

@omerhijazi404
Ohh ok
Because I saw some ppl saying I can't boot form it directly

Hello, i have been unable to update my packages. when i try, i get the following error:

Err:1 https://repo.nxos.org/nitrux nitrux/main amd64 nitrux-repositories-config amd64 0.2.3+dfsg
  Could not handshake: A TLS fatal alert has been received. [IP: [REDACTED IP] 443]
E: Failed to fetch https://repo.nxos.org/nitrux/pool/main/n/nitrux-repositories-config/nitrux-repositories-config_0.2.3+dfsg_amd64.deb  Could not handshake: A TLS fatal alert has been received. [IP: [REDACTED IP] 443]

This shows when i try and update through the "Discover" program, and also when i try to use apt. I have been unable to figure out how to fix it. I also believe my install of apt might be broken, as it is telling me to autoremove integral system files, which i did do once, without reading the files it was removing, and it left me in an unbootable state, so i had to reinstall the OS. Does anyone know how to fix that too?

trying to make a bootable usb and the only link ive found for "znx" returns a 404
trying with unetbootin on a mbr fat

@UriHerrera
@CoronaBorealis02 Can you do apt download nitrux-repositories-config? Are your timezone, date, and time correct? What have you tried?. About your other issue, APT is not going to auto-remove packages automatically. If you are unsure about the packages that APT it's telling you that it will remove after an operation, it's better not to go through that option.

@trissytits_twitter The ISO that you download from the website does not include, support, or work with znx. The ISO that you download from the website uses a traditional installer, in this case, Calamares. Please do not use UNetbootin. If you're on Windows, use Rufus.

Also, znx is not a program to create bootable USBs.

Hey I have a Lenovo Legion laptop and it beeps loudly when shutting down or restarting. I have not experienced this with any other distros so I assume it has something to do with OpenRC. However, I cant find any answers and there is no option in the BIOS that has anything to do with the audible beep. Any thoughts?

noobie , I can't understand the documentation for where and how to install znx and Nitrux 1.4
I am using Rufus on Linux Mint, unsure where are how to start, do I boot from the USB

Can someone help me or direct me to where to go, you tube video was not helpful and neither was Nitrux documentation

How do I install Nitrux? Do i just install it like i would install any other distro? (using rufus or etcher)
Juan
@Sarcasmo220
Yes, you can use either of those tools to make a bootable USB and then boot up a live version of the OS. From there you can run the calamares installer.

@LoweloDev
I really wanted to use this distro. I loved the UI concept. However, besides the fact that the entire Operating system breaks by simply updating through the given tool after a fresh install, I now even got issues with root permissions... on a fresh install.. where I can legit log into my user but I cannot even look at my own password with pkexec passwd. And the worst part? I have no clue where to report issues for this distro. So where can I do the latter at least?

@LoweloDev Hi. I don't know what exactly are you referring to, but I assume you mean this error in APT?:

VirtualBox_Nitrux (legacy)_16_06_2021_18_55_03.png

All that you need to do is update nitrux-repositories-config.

You can see @LoweloDev that the problem is gone; this issue was fixed ten days ago (June 7th).
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera

Since I don't know what exactly you did (because you didn't mention any details), I'm guessing that you tried to force the upgrade; thus, you ended with a broken system. You can see that APT doesn't want to proceed with the operation (upgrade), so the system didn't 'break' itself.

I want to welcome you to ask us first if you have problems (like this). Also, it's worth mentioning that the bug tracker is listed in the changelog of every new release, and it has been for the past ten releases or ten months. You can also find the link to our GitHub organization in the same area where you found the link to this Gitter room.

@LoweloDev

Hey @UriHerrera . Thanks for the reply. I didn't do it via CLI. Did it via the update tool icon in the latte dock that opens some application themed like an appstore. If this app tries to force the upgrade, then yes I probably tried to force it. I didn't fiddle with doing it manually yet. I will definitely try your suggestions when I got the time to do so.
Generally I think through that update tool of the distro I am unsure wether I actually saw any error. It just seemed as if some kde packages were replaced/moved but the path wasn't updated since in sddm it displayed errors implying that KDE stuff wasn't found, AFTER reboot.
The only way you figured your system is fucked before shutting down is that not a single app properly functioned anymore that is somewhat related to KDE.

As for your Github organization, I know, been there. However, where would I report general issues with the OS there? As far as I can tell I would have to figure out myself before to which repository it is related the most. e.g. nx-desktop or nitrux-base-files or nitrux-live-user or can I just use nitrux-base-files?

Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera

@LoweloDev Right, that's Plasma Discover. Plasma Discover should've displayed a dialog with the same information, but it probably is good to report that as a bug against Discover if it didn't.

Although, doing sudo apt dist-upgrade will perform the upgrade appropriately. After it's updated, installing the package maui-apps will add dependencies for the newer version of the Maui applications.

When you click on the link to our GitHub org, there is a search box with the label Find a repository ...; there, you can search for the keyword bug, it will present you the repository nitrux-bug-tracker.

LoweloDev
@LoweloDev

@UriHerrera Alright thank you very much! I will see whether I just missed the warning. Not unlikely with ADHD ;D And thanks for the info where to report bugs actually Nitrux related.

Also, keep up the cool work. Saw you do Webdesign and stuff on your profile, so I guess you are the reason for the UI/UX of Nitrux. Even though I sadly couldn't test it thoroughly yet, some of it is in my opinion some of the best innovations in out of the box UX in quite a while. At least for my usecases as far as I could tell. Heck, even the fact that powerline (or something equivalent) appears to be preinstalled is something I barely got with any other distro and is yet such an obvious improvement.
