Reboot to commandline did not work in EasyPup

February 29, 2020 — BarryK

Forum member 'thinkpadfreak' reported this. The "Shutdown" menu has the entry "Reboot to commandline". This executes /usr/bin/wmreboot, passing the parameter "nox" to it. However, the wmreboot script in EasyPup is different from the one in EasyOS, and does not have handling for that "nox". Fixed.

"Reboot to commandline" is very useful when debugging X, so important that it be functional. It does require that there be a save-file, and at first bootup, when you are in PUPMODE 5, at shutdown you are asked to save the session, so you would have to do this, so that at next bootup the request to stop at the commandline and not start X is remembered.

thinkpadfreak also reported that the executable 'gtk-query-immodules-3.0' is missing. /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 is there, but not the gtk3 version.

Actually, it is there, at this location:


What I have done is create a symlink to it, from /usr/bin, so it will now be in the $PATH. This fix applies to both EasyOS and EasyPup.
