I mean configure nx-desktop-apps-legacy as recommended package instead of dependency to be able to remove it after the installation?

Hi @arkaitzsilva, You can do it in two ways. You can replace the meta-package with one of your own or remove the meta-package and mark the packages you want to keep as manually installed.

Hi again, I guess I could do that for apps if "nx-desktop-apps-legacy" were recommended package of "nx-desktop-legacy" instead of a dependency itself. When I try to remove firefox or docker.io (to install docker-ce, the latest version from official repo) apt tries to remove not only "nx-desktop-apps-legacy" but also de "nx-desktop-legacy" so in the next "apt-get autorremove" my desktop would be removed.

When a package is labeled as a recommended package it means that it's optional, and it doesn't get pulled unless the user specifies the package for installation. IIRC another user also asked about this.

@UriHerrera Thanks for your guidance, but I need more detailed instructions. Like what should I put in the .pref files? Also how do I mark orphaned packages?

You can find more info about using apt_preferences here https://manpages.debian.org/testing/apt/apt_preferences.5.en.html

Likewise, you can find more info about marking packages here http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/focal/man8/apt-mark.8.html#automatically%20and%20manually%20installed%20packages

But yes, if you want to remove the packages that our meta-packages install, you have to replace our meta-packages with your own, so that yours provides only the packages you want, or mark the packages as I mentioned. Of course, don't run apt autoremove before you mark the packages.

Why are you using pkgmaster.devuan.org for the Devuan packages? The developers recommend that deb.devuan.org be used instead to reduce the load on their main servers: https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=24966#p24966

Hi, I recently started using Nitrux. I have the latest version that is available but I experience huge lags on it and I am not able to install the available update because the base-passwd configuration jams. Below I enclose a photo with version and resource consumption during use.

Hi @UriHerrera It seems that there is some kind of problem with the recently released KDE Plasma 5.20 and the Nitrux main meta-package.

@arkaitzsilva Let me check.

@Head-on-a-Stick We were not aware of any mirrors.

@arkaitzsilva I'm on the live session and ran apt upgrade but I'm not getting any output of Apt wanting to remove our meta packages

Hi @UriHerrera apt-get upgrade works fine, the problem arises when you try to install Plasma 5.20 with apt-get dist-upgrade or using Discover.

@arkaitzsilva It's the package user-manager it doesn't seem to be compatible with the newest Plasma

Yes, solved with the new version of nx-desktop package, thanks

Sorry, not used to this... See https://www.devuan.org/get-devuan for a full list of mirrors and https://www.devuan.org/os/packages for the recommended sources. Using deb.devuan.org will benefit both Devuan and Nitrux because the packages & updates will still be available even if the main servers are down.

Just a quick question, is Nitrux based on LTS or normal release of Ubuntu?

@CodeBizarre The Ubuntu repository that we use is focal.

Hi @UriHerrera, I can't install nx-desktop-legacy package, apparently kde-l10n-* packages required to install the Nitrux meta-package have been recently been removed from Focal/Neon repos.

@dduran1210 Hi there. Could you be more detailed?.
dduran1210
@dduran1210

Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
Like adding a screenshot, for example.
dduran1210
@dduran1210

does it take longer than that to check?
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
Ok, let's try again. You downloaded the ISO, how did you flash it to the USB?
dduran1210
@dduran1210
first time...with balenaetcher
2nd and 3 times with rufus
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
OK, when you used Rufus, did you flash it using DD mode? or did you use ISO mode?
dduran1210
@dduran1210
i used iso mode always
Uri Herrera
@UriHerrera
Please don't use ISO mode, use DD mode
dduran1210
@dduran1210
ok....then i'll go back and do it that way.
thanks
i'll let you know how it turns out. i appreciate your help
