FLUFF file manager - saving configurations
« on: November 29, 2010, 06:37:03 PM »
I can't get Fluff to retain settings.   It simply re-generates a new config file  ???
There is one in etc/skel , another in home/tc , neither seems persistant.

Not using commandline parms.

You need a persistent tce, and have to do a backup during shutdown.

@ ACRizona: I'd guess gerald_clark is right, unless you are doing something less typical like not logging in as user "tc".  If you are sure you can save files in your home folder, and _still_ cannot get Fluff to save the .fluff.conf file, please post more details and we will try to sort it out. 

Steps to test general persistence:

1) Create a file in your home folder. 
   a. Open a new terminal window.
   b. Enter the command "touch testfile"
   c. Verify the file is there with the command 'ls -l"
   d. You should see the name testfile listed as a zero-byte file with the current timestamp
2) Do a shutdown with the normal backup
3) Reboot TC and make sure the boot options allow the persistent data to be restored
4) Open a terminal window and issue "ls -l" again
5) Verify "testfile" is still there

Good luck.  :)
