Thank you for testing this.

In "~/.icewm/startup" you will see a line that activates the "polkit-gnome-autentication-agent-1". Try adding this to your fluxbox startup and see if gufw then launches.

Looks like the "ufw" package needs some attention too, the on/off toggle does not stick between reboots. As a temporary hack, you can add this line to the end of "/etc/rc.d/rc.local":
Code: [Select]
ufw enable

Hi
Thanks, yes the new pkg appears to install with depends and work as expected in icewm.

However in fluxbox selecting the menu item does nothing and the terminal provides this error.

This incident has been reported.

Is there a way to start the firewall at boot time?

Thanks

New/updated package available. Testing encouraged.  ;D

I can verify that the gufw package does not pull in all necessary deps. On Light 7.2 32-bit I added python-netifaces, gobject-introspection+pygobject3, and webkitgtk3.

After that, gufw does launch and seems to work as it should. When I turn firewall ON, nmap reported that all ports changed from "closed" to "filtered".

More notes: the .desktop launcher specifies the use of "vsuper gufw", but changing that to just "gufw" is desirable. Additionally, the hicolor icon cache needs to be updated to register the proper icon for the menu. Tested local builds, up to 16.04.0 worked.. probably a good spot, as it is LTS.

hi
VL7.2 Light includes iptables, I added gufw from gslapt

gufw includes ufw but does not install netifiles, webkit or py-gobject.

after that when selected from the menu a black terminal asks for password..typing gufw in a terminal gives the expected graphic dialog for password.

both open the gufw config dialog and it can be toggled on

in terminal ufw status posts active..

not sure if it is actually working, posting as pkg does not install all depends

Thanks roarde, missed that, will look forward to the new background.


installed Firefox...note that the "data choices" page is blank..should have the toggles for data sending sharing

installed light also to older 1gig acer netbook, works very nice but browser is painfully slow...firefox is slightly better strangly but still slooow
will try midori and chrome or repurpose with offline apps

p.s. added shutdown and reboot to the fluxbox menu

Here is another bit, a VL7.2 light fluxbox menu with helpfull tips


Very helpful. I need to work with Fluxbox for a side project. Having the applications I'm used to right at hand made dealing with Fluxbox a whole lot easier. Woulda taken me four days to get to this point, as I'd be starting from zero.

Thanks again!

P.S.: Yes, the side project is on hold until after VL release  :P

I find that very strange indeed, but no matter, you say it is Safe and Acceptable for the end user to replace the VL light gdm  themes background.jpg? yes.

Of course it's safe! :)  That's why we like it.

What I was saying is, that the way the text, icons, and entry boxes are handled in the upcoming gdm config will match with your background even better than the present setup does. Still, people will like the new default backgrounds.

Here is another bit, a VL7.2 light fluxbox menu with helpfull tips

Code: [Select]
# VL-7.2 light fluxbox menu
#
# Here are some useful tips:
#
# - To generate xdg_menu (applications menu) for fluxbox run the following in a terminal.
#   "xdgmenumaker -f fluxbox > ~/.fluxbox/xdg_menu" (do not include the "")
#
# - To add your installed applications to the applications menu: select the fluxbox menu item "update apps menu"
#
# - To select wallpapers from the menu install feh from the gslapt package manager.
#
# - To use the fluxbox menu items (edit fluxbox menu) and (open fluxbox folder)scroll down here
#    find the item and replace "someone" with your user name.
#
# - To add nm-applet to the tray in fluxbox panel: Open fluxbox folder, double click startup or open in a text editor,add
#    "nm-applet &" prior to exec fluxbox and save file. do not include"". (or wicd-client --tray &)
#
# - To add rounded corners to fluxbox styles add the following to the style file as root.
#    you will find styles in/usr/share/fluxbox/styles
#     menu.roundCorners: TopRight TopLeft BottomRight BottomLeft
#     window.roundCorners: TopRight TopLeft BottomRight BottomLeft
#     toolbar.shaped: true
#
# - To add transparency to menu,panel and window headers
#    select Force-Pseudo-Transparency from fluxbox menu/configure/transparency then change the items alpha value.

Thanks for the word on B2. I'm using it myself and have pretty much the same result.

I do like your login background. Masta has supplied a new login setup that matches a new grub screen. Both of those have been waiting for me to get them into packages for quite a while now. Plans are still for STD and Light to share the grub and login screens again. Interesting thing is that your image will look even better with the new configuration than it does now, if you want to use it.

Edited: Finally caught the ambiguity in my initial wording.
