EXTON OpSuS Tumbleweed LXQt 64 bit non-efi Linux Live CD/USB - Build 210203 and 181126 (Build 181126 for Raspberry Pi 3)

 

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. The ISO file is only of 657 MB so you will run the system very fast from a CD or a USB stick. Even in VirtualBox/VMware directly from the ISO file.

ABOUT EXTON OpSuS for PC's
EXTON OpSuS Tumbleweed with LXQt 0.16.1 uses kernel 5.10.9-1. Installed programs: Among many other programs, Firefox, NetworkManager, GParted and Calamares Installer. You'll run the system as root from the beginning. Root's password is linux. EXTON OpSuS can easily be installed to hard drive (of those who so desire). For that you shall use Calamares Installer. All programs have been updated to the latest available version as of February 3, 2021. The system language is English.

Run EXTON OpSuS with PERSISTENCE from a USB stick! You can install new programs and/or change the whole system to you liking. Everything you do will be saved directly on the USB stick.

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 to a hard drive (if you like). You can also continue to have it only on the USB stick. You will enjoy persistence if you use openSUSE Imagewriter for the USB installation. In Windows you can use Etcher (and possibly also Rufus if you install in dd-mode) for the USB installation. If you install EXTON OpSuS on a large enough (and fast) USB stick, you can go ahead and install for example KDE, Mate or Xfce4 Desktop environments. 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. If you later on decide to install EXTON OpSuS to hard drive using Calamares all your system changes will follow.

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.

Installation of EXTON OpSuS from a USB stick (or CD) to hard drive
1. Change one Calamares setting. Open PCManFM-qt File Manager and go to /usr/share/calamares/modules. Open the file unpackfs.conf with Leafpad and go to line 85. Change "source" to - source: "/". Watch this screenshot.
2. Start Calamares Installer - watch this screenshot. (Installation in VirtualBox).
3. Calamares settings (user etc) - watch this screenshot.
4. Ready to install with Calamares - watch this screenshot. Install Grub2 to MBR (/dev/sda).
5. The installation to hard drive is ready - watch this screenshot.

How to run EXTON OpSuS in full screen in VirtualBox
For that you'll need VirtualBox Guest Additions. Install them like this.
1. Install EXTON OpSuS to hard drive using Calamares - see above.
2. Log in to LXQt as root and install the kernel sources with the command zypper dup followed by zypper in kernel-source.
3. Insert the VirtualBox Guest Additions CD from the menu/Devices - watch this screenshot.
4. Mount /dev/sr0 at /mnt/sr0 - watch this screenshot.
5. Got to /mnt/sr0 and run the command ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run - watch this screenshot.
6. Reboot and enjoy running EXTON OpSuS in full screen - watch this screenshot.

Log in to LXQt Desktop
First you'll have to log in to the Desktop as the as root (superuser) from console mode. Password: linux. Then run the command startx or lightdm. If you always want to log in from the LightDM Display Manager you shall run the command systemctl set-default graphical.target.

How to enable sound
1. Create a normal/ordinary user using YaST. Watch this screenshot. You will only have sound when logged in as an ordinary user. (You can't run Pulseaudio as root).
2. Log in to LXQt as your ordinary user and run the command pulseaudio --start.
3. Su to root and run the command setup-pulseaudio --enable.

Network connections in EXTON OpSuS
Use Yast2. To find out the names of your Network Interfaces run the command iwconfig. If you use a wired connection you will be connected automatically.

Samba connections with Windows computers in your Network
Just open PCManFM-qt and go to your Windows computer IP address. Watch this screenshot. You'll find the correct IP address by running the command ipconfig on your Windows computer.

Wireless connections
Use YaST Control Center - screenshot. Or just click on the NetworkManager-applet on the panel to the right and choose your Network. Watch this screenshot. You may have to edit /etc/resolv.conf to get connected to the Internet. Add nameserver 8.8.8.8 on the last line.

Is EXTON OpSuS LXQt Build 210203 unique?
If you have a look at openSUSE's official Download site you can see that there is no live LXQt version available. OpenSUSE' live versions should not be used to install or upgrade Tumbleweed.

Why should someone choose EXTON OpSuS/openSUSE?
