More applications for Q4OS

Some additional applications that are not part of the software center are available for download and easy installation:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/q4os/f … ntal_apps/

Vivaldi .. web browser
Opera .. web browser
Microsoft Edge .. web browser
TeamViewer .. remote desktop control
Anydesk .. remote desktop control
Zoom .. communication client
ProtonVPN ... proprietary VPN solution
Dropbox .. cloud storage
Etcher .. data burning tool
Ventoy .. multiboot USB drive tool
MX tools .. MX tools compiled for Debian

Installation is pretty easy. Just download the installer and run it from file manager. Please note, installers are considered as testing at the moment, however the installed applications should be rather stable. Most of installers include update repositories, so the applications keep up to date.

Installers source code is available on GitHub, anyone is welcome to join the development https://github.com/q4os-installers

Re: More applications for Q4OS

I had a spare nested VM of Q4 so I gave some of these a go. Vivaldi, Opera, Edge and MX Tools worked. Etcher does not, it fails to install.

Thanks for reporting. A new, fixed Etcher installer version "3.2-a1" is now available for download.

Re: More applications for Q4OS

GREETINGS,

I am new to this platform so I do not know how to install Sourceforge on my PC. So, please guide me through this.

Thank you.

You don't need to install SourceForge. Just click on the link https://sourceforge.net/projects/q4os/f … ntal_apps/ in a web browser, download the desired installer and click on it in file manger and follow the guide.

Re: More applications for Q4OS

This is the best news in a long time for me.
Teamviewer, Anydesk, MX-Tools and more. This makes the standard configuration for my computers a lot easier for me. I've seen this installer in the Gemini test build. now I am eagerly waiting for gemini stable build to be published.
Thank you for this improvement!

Re: More applications for Q4OS

MX Tools set is a great asset. Particularly fantastic Snapshot and Live-USB-Maker tools, the most important ones...
My testing on both Centaurus and Gemini Trinity brought about the following observation:
- The entire MX Tools set installs without a hitch
- ISO Snapshot executes fine and completes creation of Snapshot ISO.
- Live-USB-Maker run on the resulting snapshot ISO creates a Q4OS Live instance with no errors, however with a few issues with the resulting Live:
1 - On a few laptops I tested it boots to cli prompt to log-in, rather than GUI login. after login and startx proceeds to Trinity desktop
2 - During bootin process it waits 1min 30sec with a message something like 'start job running for sys-subsystem-net-devices-...'.
3 - Network appears to be connected fine, however browser is not able to access Internet for some reason. I am trying to identify what prevents it, such as firewall settings or something else...

I was told that the above issues have to do with systemd starting some unnecessary services, such as wpa-supplicants, and other  network related. Unnecessary to be started at that point as Network Manager should be taking care of this after boot.
Just a few observations...
Thanks and Regards...

Thanks for reporting. Please keep in mind the MX Tools for Q4OS/Debian is a testing compilation at the moment. We are considering to start a new project on Github for everyone be able to contribute to the source code.

Understood. Thanks for heads-up...
Q4OS, excellent as it is already, can greatly benefit if such key tools are integrated.
Thanks and Regards...

Re: More applications for Q4OS

I just installed ProtonVPN GUI and can confirm that it installs and works just fine! So thank you so much! One thing that should be noted, is that users need to have at hand their OpenVPN password, since the app will ask for it when trying to connect to a server, which they can get by going to proton site, logging in, going to dashboard, click on account, then click on OpenVPN username, click the copy button, then past it to the password dialog, click ok and that's it. smile
