EXTON OpSuS Tumbleweed -  KDE_Plasma/Cinnamon/Budgie 64 bit Linux Live USB - Build 180114 and 180125

 

EXTON OpSuS Tumbleweed is based on openSUSE Tumbleweed, which is a rolling distribution. I.e. no need for new installations. Just run the command sudo zypper dup and you will always get the latest stable packages/kernels.

ABOUT
EXTON OpSuS Tumbleweed uses kernel 4.14.12-1 respectively 4.14.14-1 (in Build 180125). Desktop environments: KDE 4.14.38, Cinnamon 3.6.2 and Budgie 10.4 Desktop (in Build 180125). Installed programs: Among many other programs, Firefox, Google Chrome (for Netflix), Thunderbird, Gimp, SMPlayer, NetworkManager, GParted and LibreOffice. You'll run the system as root or as the ordinary user live. Root's and live's password is root/live. EXTON OpSuS can easily be installed to hard drive (of those who so desire). You'll have to do it manually though - please read below. All programs have been updated to the latest available stable version as of January 14, 2018 respectively January 25, 2018. The system language is English.

Installing to a USB stick with persistence and then to hard drive
After installing EXTON OpSuS Tumbleweed to a USB stick, you can change the system completely and then install the system (manually) to a hard drive. You can also continue to have it only on the USB stick. If you install EXTON OpSuS on a large enough (and fast) USB stick, you can go ahead and install for example LXDE, Mate or Xfce4. All your system changes are automatically saved to the USB stick. Note that you'll have to use a different/new USB stick if you want to run EXTON OpSuS on another computer. That's because certain files necessary for the configuration will be destroyed after the first boot. I.e.: You'll have to use the same USB stick on the same computer all the time. Note also that all other Linux systems (and Windows systems) you may have installed on your computer will be bootable from the USB stick's Grub menu - Grub picture 1 and picture 2. You may have to start EXTON OpSuS in Recovery mode after the first boot as picture 2 shows. Not as regards Build 180125 though.

Install EXTON OpSuS Tumbleweed on a USB stick with persistence
1. You shall/must install EXTON OpSuS Tumbleweed on a USB stick.
When downloading EXTON OpSuS, it comes in the form of a zip file (EXTON-OpSuS-64bit-tumbleweed-kde_plasma-1890mb-180114.zip) of 1890 MB. After unpacking with (for example) 7-Zip, you will have a file named EXTON-OpSuS-64bit-tumbleweed-kde_plasma-4880mb-180114.img. It is of 4880 MB. This is the file you want to install to a USB stick of at least 6 GB.
2. Format a USB stick with FAT32 file system in Windows. (Right click and select format).
3. Download the program Win32 Disk Imager in your Windows system and use it. Or use Etcher (which I find better). It will then look like this.

4. Find your img file and make sure that you select the correct "Device" to install to.
5. Then just restart the computer with the USB stick in place and have fun!
If you follow the above five points all your changes to the system are automatically saved on the stick. I.e. your changes to the system are retained even after reboot. It's also pretty good if you then decide to install the system to hard drive. One reason for such an installation may be that you want to run the system faster. NOTE: You must use the latest version of Win32 Disk Imager or Etcher. NOTE ALSO: Your first upstart/boot from the USB stick is rather slow. That's because your hardware has to be configured during the first boot. The second upstart/boot will be faster (but not really fast). Note that you'll have to use a different/new USB stick if you want to run EXTON OpSuS on another computer. That's because certain files necessary for the configuration will be destroyed after the first boot. I.e.: You'll have to use the same USB stick on the same computer all the time. Note also that all other Linux systems (and Windows systems) you may have installed on your computer will be bootable from the USB stick's Grub menu - Grub picture 1 and picture 2. You may have to start EXTON OpSuS in Recovery mode after the first boot as picture 2 shows. Not as regards Build 180125 though.

Alternative USB installation in Linux

You can (of course) install EXTON OpSuS Tumbleweed to a USB stick also in Linux. For example in OpenSUSE 42.3. In openSUSE, you shall use the program Suse Studio Imagewriter. In openSUSE, you must change the file extension .img (of the IMAGE file) to .raw.  

Manual installation of EXTON OpSuS from USB stick to hard drive
PREREQUISITE: You'll have to have at least one Linux system installed on your computer and use Grub2 as boot loader. If so then follow my INSTRUCTION.

Log in to KDE, Cinnamon or Budgie
Log in to the Desktop as the ordinary user live or as root (superuser). Passwords: live/root. When logged in as live you can use Sudo to become root. (Command sudo su). That can be useful sometimes. To be able to change from KDE to Cinnamon you'll have to edit /home/live/.xinitrc respectively /root/.xinitrc - screenshot.

Configure X
On certain computers your graphic card may not be detected/configured properly. You will then end up in console mode. Do this:
1. Log in as root with password root
2. Run the command: X -configure
3. Run the command: mv xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
4. Enter X/KDE with the command: startx

Samba in EXTON OpSuS KDE
You can use Samba to connect to your Windows computers in your Network. Just open up Konqueror Web Browser and go to (for example) smb://192.168.1.67. It can look like this.

Network connections in EXTON OpSuS
Use Yast2. To find out the names of your network interfaces run the command iwconfig. It can look like this - Terminal screenshot. To get a stable Internet connection you may have to add your router's IP address to /etc/resolv.conf - screenshot. Not as regards Build 180125 though.

Wireless connections
Use YaST Control Center - screenshot. You can tell Yast to use NetworkManager Service instead of Wicked Network Configuration - see this screenshot.

Google Chrome and Netflix
To be able to watch Netflix movies in Linux you'll need the Google Chrome Browser. It is pre-installed in EXTON OpSuS Tumbleweed KDE Build 180114. You can only run Chrome when logged in as the ordinary user live. In Build 180125 you can watch Netflix using Firefox.
