no that is just the base files staying updated. 4.6 is still in testing.
Parrot 4.6 Release Candidate 8 released
Test it and send your test report here
KDE images are available as well
Attempting to run a program in the termianl results in:
Error: the user is not allowed to use Firejail. Please add the user in /etc/firejail/firejail.users file, either by running “sudo firecfg”, or by editing the file directly.
See “man firejail-users” for more details.
To which I did what it asked. Then I tried running a program from the terminal again, and it responded with:
Warning: Cannot confine the application using AppArmor.
Maybe firejail-default AppArmor profile is not loaded into the kernel.
As root, run “aa-enforce firejail-default” to load it.
The program runs, and everything I’ve tested so far appears to be stable. I executed both commands as it asked me to and everything seems fine. Do you think those two commands should be required to be executed by the user? Personally I can just run them myself but what do you think?
Hey @jasonb179 Firejail’s app control has been disabled for running some application like
LibreOffice It’s is better now
Nice Work Parrot Team
Also thanks for updating
support documentations for newbies to make it more handy
I wish I am one of you
ParrotSec 4.6 RC 8 (KDE) awesome environment & design through it takes little bit in booting (KDE takes a little bit time I know )
firejail disabled fixed also
other apps that’s pretty cool
Suggestion: It will be better if the
KDE has a
awesome wallpaper (parrot) with
digital clock widget in center of the screen. I love that
Where can i see the RC number?
Is it possible to upgrade from RC4 to RC8 with parrot-upgrade?
I don’t believe so as each rc is its own separate build. We went from rc4 to rc8 as 5,6,7 were a bit broken
We are working on support docs and other docs for devs training and workflows. A pre-copied doc is an other completely different story and we have to complete core things first
4.6 rc8 quick view:
vimis not pre-installed. It is still
vi. (I think tool list wasn’t updated)
- Firejail showed:
user doesn't allowed to use firejail
- There is no way to unlock screen if screen is locked accidently. Parrot was freezy after screen lock showed few seconds.
Quick question: Are you running this as a LiveUSB or an install? The lock screen issue should be a high priority due to some users having to run it off of a USB key.
Live mode with virtualbox. It means any user can run without knowing the password.
Lockscreen issue really fucks live users I agree
Need to be fixed in next releases (facing it also in KDE)
VirtualBox it also ask for
keyboard setting in
live mode before the
plasma login logo appears
i don’t know how to configure the background and the widgets, but i will work on it for parrot 4.7. it’s too late to touch parrot-skel for 4.6
rc numbers can be seen from the filename you download
dist-upgrading an installed system is an interesting experiment to do and it will give you access to some package updates, but not the updates that fix bad behaviors in our live environment or the packages installed by default and not tracked by a metapackage
made a fix for it for both live-config and debian-installer
noticed on kde edition, i fixed it by using lightdm for kde too instead of using sddm, which doesn’t seem to be properly configured to be run after live-config
let’s see if the next iso files will behave better
i can confirm that the following bugs are fixed:
sandbox authorization in live mode
bugs still around:
kde edition requires login in live mode even with lightdm instead of sddm
i still don’t know how to setup a custom background in parrot-skel for kde plasma
blackbird should not be selectable by default, just ignore it, it is there because some of its components are used by other themes
it should ask for the user password instead of the root password, and it should not be asked in live mode
i think disabling it is a better idea rather than removing it
Is there any idea / solution for screen lock in live mode? Locking screen without knowing password is not good at all (MATE DE)
Hey Bro, @palinuro
But I hope that you will
disable it by
next releases (Other users will also like this)
worst things of
So, there are
still bugs as it also asks for
password in the
I always like
live mode (
encrypted persistence) rather than
It is not recommended nor is it efficient to use a live environment versus installed to bare metal.you are bot able to utilize tbefull potential of the system. Live has its purposes but generally installed is way way way better
