Invisible on DVD.With the new Hybrid layout of the ISO file, the file can be copied directly to USB flash disk, either using standard Linux tools like dd or cp, or programs like Win32 DIsk Imager. In this case, the first partition is read-only because of the iso9660 file system. Because od that, boot options cannot be changed permanently.Example:
dd if=KNOPPIX_V8.1-2017-09-05-EN.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=1MA better way of installing, is using --> flash-knoppix, which will create the simpler and writable layout with one FAT32 and one Linux partition on USB flash pen. Optionally, a personal remastering can be chosen in version 8.1.UEFI Secure BootKNOPPIX 8.1 generally supports booting in UEFI and Secure Boot after installation on USB flash disk. But in order to use this feature, an entry in the UEFI firmware is necessary at first boot attempt. --> Find quick instructions here.Special Feature "Everything 3D"
"3D Design and 3D printing" is a great field of play for creative persons and makers. Also, many lectures and talks held be Klaus Knopper have touched the topic this year. Because of that, the KNOPPIX DVD version 8.1 features the following popular 3D programs: OpenScad - 3D construction without drawing skills
Slic3r - G-Code printing preparation for 3D models
Blender*) - extensive 3D modelling and animation program
Freecad*) - Draw 3D models *) Because of space considerations, included inside the second overlay image KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX1 OpenSCAD 3D animationKnown bugs in version 8.1 Because of a controversal design decision of its developers, the popular Firefox web browser ceased to support direct audio playing under Linux starting from version 52. An error message displaying on pages like youtube, suggesting to install "pulseaudio" (which is already installed), is misleading and provides no solution. More about this at the Mozilla bugtracking pages Workaround: The Chromium web browser, like all other programs using sound in Knoppix excepting Firefox now, does not have this problem and is therefore now set as default browser in the LXDE desktop menu starting from Knoppix version 8.1. ADRIANEA.D.R.I.A.N.E. (Audio Desktop Reference Implementation And Networking Environment) is a talking menu system, which is supposed make work and internet access easier for computer beginners, even if they have no sight contact to the computers monitor. A graphical environment with also talking programs and arbitrary magnification using compiz, is another option.
Booting from FlashIn order to create a bootable USB-medium (memory flashdisk, SD-card, digital camera with USB connector, cellphone with microSD, ...), the program flash-knoppix can be started from a running KNOPPIX system. This program installs all needed KNOPPIX files onto the FAT-formatted flashdisk, and creates a boot record for it. If desired, the target medium can be partitioned and formatted, or left in its inistal state, so that existing files stay intact. The KNOPPIX Live System starts and runs about factor 5 faster from USB flash disk than from CD or DVD!After having copied the system to flash, using the persistent KNOPPIX image (overlay feature) or an additional Linux partition, it is possible to also store files permanently in live mode. That way, personal settings and additionally installed programs survive a reboot.
Update: Computers without DVD driveThe flash-knoppix script since Knoppix 7.4.0 supports on-the-fly conversion of a DVD ISO image for direct flashing of a USB pendrive or disk. By using this, the intermediate step of burning a DVD and booting from it, can be skipped. For burning a CD or DVD, only one single .iso file matching your language and version choice, is sufficient. For using this feature, just add the name of the .iso file as commandline parameter to flash-knoppix like this: flash-knoppix options and controlsOverview of the most important functions. A complete description and listing of shortcuts can be found in the configurations of sbl, orca and compiz.Boot options (can be entered in the startup screen)
