[OPEN] Slight build issue dealing with Calamares

Post by JBrewer » Thu Nov 22, 2018 12:28 am

I've built my distro many times without issue whatsoever. but lately not sure if it's something that i've done or if i's calamares installer borking it. So here's the issue i have the configs for xfce and Thunar and they build and load correctly for the live installer. Yet once calamares finishes install and i reboot they are gone(literally) i check in etc/.configs/skel and they are no where to be found any idea what may be causing that?

Sorry bout the confusion. i building straight off of releng. I've had my project working in the past my xfce4 and Thunar folders always found their correct home. Hard to tell if its a calamares issue or a folder permission issue still new to the Calamares code structure. But when i build my iso the xfce4 and Thunar folder with my configs install correctly to the designated areas( they work fine during a live session). but once i install the system the configs are gone and i'm left with the standard just installed xfce session and have to chose what config i want to lose. In short those 2 folders are getting hijacked somewhere. I did a log on calamares and showed nothing regarding the issue

I''m an android developer was gonna base on manjaro since i've been having issue. I got it booting etc but they have way too many symlinks to work around. Months ago i used https://github.com/midfingr tutorials on the basics followed you guys manjaro to name a few to figure things out. All worked great until one day the stuff stopped working. Just wanna say thanks in advance for what you guys do and thanks for being open source. So that others can learn.
Kudos,
JB
