To get started with PearOS, you will need to install it on your computer. The installation process is straightforward, and you will be guided through the steps by the installation wizard. Once you have installed PearOS, you will need to log in to your account. If you are the only user of your computer, you will be automatically logged in.
Before you begin the installation process, ensure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements for PearOS. You can find these requirements on the PearOS website. Additionally, it's recommended to create a backup of any important data on your computer to prevent any loss of data during the installation process.
Next, you'll need to download the PearOS installation file from the official website. Once the file is downloaded, create a bootable USB drive using a tool like Rufus or Etcher. This will allow you to boot your computer from the USB drive and begin the installation process.
With the bootable USB drive ready, insert it into your computer and boot from the USB drive. Follow the on-screen prompts to begin the installation process. You'll be asked to select your language, time zone, keyboard layout, and create a user account. Finally, select the partition on which to install PearOS and wait for the installation to complete. Once installed, reboot your computer, and you'll be ready to start using PearOS.
Here's an example setting up a main user profile in PearOS's user.config.info file (please note that this is just a sample).
This code creates a new user account with the username "johndoe" and sets a password of "p@ssw0rd". It also sets the user's full name and email address.
Next, it grants the user sudo privileges, allowing them to perform administrative tasks on the system. It then configures the user's environment with default settings and sets permissions for their home directory.
NOTE: Of course, this is just a simplified example and there may be additional steps involved in setting up a user profile depending on the specific configuration of your system.
Open the Settings application by clicking on the gear icon in the system tray or by searching for it in the Applications menu.
Navigate to the section of the Settings application that corresponds to the settings or preferences you want to save. For example, if you want to save changes you've made to your desktop wallpaper, navigate to the Desktop & Screen Saver section.
Make any desired changes to your settings or preferences and then press CMD + S on your keyboard to save your changes. Depending on the section of the Settings application you are in, you may be prompted to confirm your changes before they are saved.
Before exiting verify that your changes have been saved by checking that they are retained the next time you log in to your account.
