Miscellaneous Tweaks & Tips

Finally i brick my BBQLinux BuildBox . . . tongue So i guess its worth sharing the tips here . . . cool

it always stop at /bin/bash: prebuilts/misc/linux-x86/bison/bison: No such file or directory & i don't even know how i broke it, after spending many hours trying to rescue it but fail, ending up re-installing BBQLinux & in less than 20 minutes later, my BuildBox is back building android; Conclusion : Just re-install it . . . lol

Do not format, just assign back the mountpoint & re-install, thats it, all your files will be retained, no worries

UEFI
Setup your BBQLinux BuildBox in UEFI Native-Boot, you'll be amaze by the lightning boot up & operating speed, its so fast BUT i'm not even using SSD ! Note : Not all mobo support UEFI. My mobo -> systemd-analyze

Native-Boot - Disable grub timeout
i'm a long time Windows users so i like to use Mate-Terminal instead of vi or nano -> sudo geany /boot/grub/grub.cfg -> Ctrl + F -> timeout= -> change the first one to timeout=0 -> save it -> reboot

VirtualBox - (Note : Only works on Native-Boot)
Still need to develop Windows apps & now its the other way round, that is Windows is on VirtualBox . . . big_smile

sudo pacman -S virtualbox-host-dkms

then follow on-screen instructions for building dkms modules

sudo pacman -S virtualbox

& add user. Eg: sudo gpasswd -a yuweng vboxusers then you can access your android device USB on VirtualBox.

If you're using an old kernel then you may need below command, reboot first then only install VirtualBox . . .

sudo pacman -S linux linux-headers

Virtualbox can be access at Applications -> System Tools

Already bored with BBQLinux theme then hunt for new one here . . .

My OS X theme on BBQLinux, more info here . . .

Want the apple OS X dock to work on BBQLinux then . . .

sudo pacman -S docky

Docky can be access at Applications -> Accessories

So if you have any other Miscellaneous Tweaks & Tips, please do share it on this thread, Cheers . . . wink

Updates
Got my Canon LBP2900 working following this guide with one most important criteria, plugin your printer, reboot BBQLinux after completion or it will not print ! Fyi, spent nearly 3 days then only figured it out . . . tongue

Solution to 7zFM not working -> Source

sudo pacman -S wxgtk2.8

Got Winamp with Enhancer working on BBQLinux, it sound so good on my Acoustimass® 5 . . . cool

sudo pacman -S wine
env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-winamp wine ~/Downloads/winamp565_lite_all.exe
env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-winamp wine ~/Downloads/dsp_enh.exe
