. Introduction
Welcome to the eyeOS user guide . This guide describes how to get started using the eyeOS web system and the general use of its applications.

eyeOS is a web-based system that allows you to work and have fun with your files and documents wherever there is an Internet connection. With eyeOS, you can organize and centralize your files and documents, play your media, work with Word documents and much more. All you need to have to get started is the web browser of your computer, Internet tablet, or any Internet device.

To start using eyeOS, you need to know the address of the server where eyeOS is installed. If you do not have a private server (for example, the eyeOS server provided by your company or a group of friends), you can use the public eyeOS server, which is available at .

1.1. Logging in
The first thing you must do to use eyeOS is to type your server address in the address bar of your browser. You will be taken to the eyeOS login menu (see Figure 1).


Figure 1: EyeOS login menu

If you already have an account on this server, just enter your username and password and click “Sign in” to enter your desktop. Please go to Chapter 2, “Desktop: First Steps.”

If you still do not have an account on this eyeOS server, and the server administrator allows you to create new users (the text “New User” appears in the lower left part of the login window), you can create a new user. Please go to chapter 1.2 “Creating a new user”.

1.2. Creating a new user
To create a new user, click "New User" and enter your username and password on the form. Keep in mind that the username must be at least 4 characters long and that you must enter your password twice to ensure that it is correct.
Once you have entered your username and password, click “Create Account” (see Figure 2).


Figure 2: Creating a New User

If everything was in order (and a message appears stating that your user was successfully created), you can log in using the login window now by entering the username and password that you just selected when creating your user.

2. Desktop: first steps
Only after clicking the “Login” button, the login window will disappear and your eyeOS desktop will appear. You will be in your eyeOS desktop (see Figure 3).


Figure 3: The default eyeOS desktop view

Now you are in your eyeOS desktop, which is divided into four zones: application bar, desktop icons, system bar and task bar.

2.1. Application bar
At the top of the desktop, you will see the application panel (also known as eyeDock), where you will find the main applications sorted by categories.

To see applications in a category, simply click on the category image. To launch the application, click on its icon or description (see Figure 4).

Note that panel categories and icons can be edited in the “eyeManageApps” application (you can launch it from the system panel by selecting “Run” or opening the program folder and clicking on the “Application Manager” button). Don't be afraid to customize your eyeDock.


Figure 4: Opening the “Office” category in eyeDock

2.2. Default Desktop Icons
In the left area of ​​the desktop you have the desktop icons (home folder, applications, calendar, contacts and trash). To open an icon, just click on it.

2.2.1. The “Home Folder” icon The
home folder will open the eyeOS file manager (also known as eyeFiles) with the contents of your home folder that contains your personal files and documents (see Figure 5).

From eyeFiles you can upload files from your computer to eyeOS, files from eyeOS to your computer, and manage them (copy / paste and rename them, create folders).
You can also run some files that are recognized by eyeOS. These include images, videos, text documents, archived files, eyePackages (eyeOS installation packages) and so on.

Please refer to chapter 3.1 “eyeFiles: file manager” for more information on eyeFiles and its use.


Figure 5: Home Folder

2.2.2. “Applications”
icon The “Applications” icon will open the application folder, where you can launch each installed application. Note that the system could install applications that will not appear in eyeDock, but they will be in the application folder, since eyeDock shows only your preferred applications (to edit eyeDock, click on "Settings on the top panel" in the upper left part of the application folder).


Figure 6: Application Folder

2.2.3. Cart icon
The Trash icon will open your trash bin, where deleted files will go before they are completely removed from the system (see Figure 7). You should periodically check the trash bin, as the files in the bin are also part of your file system and you may find that your disk quota is exhausted due to the files in the bin.


Figure 7: Basket

2.3. System Panel
Exactly above the taskbar, you will see a system panel that can be opened by clicking on the green eyeOS button in the central lower area of ​​your desktop.

From the system panel, you can perform some general operations (see Figure 8):
● End the session: this item will close your current session and return you to the login window. Please note that all unsaved documents will be lost.
● Run: Use this item to launch the application by entering its name. You can also use this item to use system utilities (for example, type “killall
APPNAME” in eyeLaunch to close the APPNAME application).
● About eyeOS: in the eyeInfo window, you will see the version of eyeOS that is being
used, and the names of the eyeOS team members, as well as some of the co-authors.
● Applications: this item will open the applications folder in the same way as the “Applications” icon on the desktop does (see Figure 6).
● System setup: click to start system setup. If you logged in as a regular user, you can change some of the options and presets for your user and desktop (see Figure 9). If you are logged in as root, you will also see some options for managing your eyeOS server.


Figure 8: Opening the system panel


Figure 9: System presets available for the general user

2.4. Task bar
At the bottom of your desktop you will see a dark panel that contains minimized applications. You can restore a minimized application by clicking on its button on the panel. If you click on the button of the maximized application, it will appear on top of all open applications. Finally, if you click on the application button, it will be minimized.

On the right side of the taskbar, you will see a small panel, darker than the minimized application panel, which contains the current hour and date. If you click on a date (which is displayed in day / month format), a small calendar for the current month will appear. To close the calendar, simply click on the date again (see Figure 10).


Figure 10: Taskbar Calendar

3. Main Applications
eyeOS comes with a number of related applications that let you work from a system with a wide variety of documents and files.

With eyeOS installed by default, you can create and read text documents (with support for the Microsoft Word format), manage your calendar, contacts and mail, have shared files with other users in the system, listen to your music, and so on.

This chapter will cover the most important applications that come with eyeOS, but the best way to discover all of its features is to directly explore it.

3.1. eyeFiles: file manager
eyeFiles - eyeOS file manager. From eyeFiles you can upload your files and documents from your hard drive to eyeOS, move them, manage them between different copies of the application, and run a wide variety of files that will be played / displayed with each specific application.

To start eyeFiles, simply click on the “Home folder” icon on your desktop or open the “File Manager” in the “Office” menu in eyeDock.

As soon as you launch the application, you will see three zones:

● the left panel with a list of common operations and folders.
● top bar with current directory. You can use it to navigate your home folder. Note that if you are the root superuser, you can navigate the entire eyeOS virtual file system.
● file space where you will see all the files and folders in your current directory (by default, your “Home folder”).

3.1.1. General operations
EyeFiles operations can be started by clicking on their icons in the left pane. Note that you must first click on the operation and then on the file or folder to which it will be applied. Example of using the operation
To show how to use the operations in eyeFiles, we copy and paste the file:

1. Click on the “Copy” operation (notice that the background under the operation text has turned blue).
2. Click on the file you want to copy.
3. Go to the folder where you want to paste the file.
4. Press the right mouse button and select the “Paste” operation.
This process also applies to Download, Download as zip, Delete, Rename, and Properties. Uploading files
If you want to upload a file to your eyeOS, simply navigate to the folder where you want to upload the file and click “Upload Files”.

A download dialog will appear, and you can select one or more files that you want to download (see Figure 11). Note that the system administrator may have limited the file size for downloading in megabytes (typically 2 MB) in the web server configuration.


Figure 11: Downloading some files to your home folder

Once the download has finished, a confirmation message appears about the download. When you close the download window, you will see the new files just downloaded to your folder.

Note that if the server configuration allows this, you will see image thumbnails instead of the image icon. If you see an image icon and would like to see image thumbnails automatically, please ask your system administrator to install the GD library and its module for your PHP installation. Opening files
If the file is recognized by eyeOS and is associated with the installed application, you can simply click on the file without the selected operation and the corresponding application will start by opening the file.

Some types of files that eyeOS will recognize by default:

Images (.bmp, .png, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .tiff) will be opened in the eyeOS
Image Viewer.

MP3 music files(.mp3) will open in eyeOS Music Player.

Videos and movies (.flv, .avi, .divx ...) will be opened in eyeVideo or
eyeMovies, depending on the need for the DivX plugin.

Microsoft Word documents (.doc) and eyeOS documents (.eyedoc) will
open in eyeDocs, the eyeOS word processor.

Archive files (.zip, .tar, .tbz, .tbz2, .tgz, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2) will be opened in eyeArchive, the eyeOS archiver.

Text files (.eyecode, .txt, .py, .pl, .c, .cc) will be opened in eyeNotes.

Sometimes eyeOS applications can hang on a large process so that you cannot close it.
Then eyeProcess is the perfect solution for you. With eyeProcess, you can close any running application (even some desktop elements, such as eyeDock or eyeBar).

To start eyeProcess, click on the “Process List” in the “System” menu in eyeDock.

If you open eyeProcess without any open application on the desktop, you will see the default applications and loaded system modules (see Figure 19). Note that they are important parts for the proper functioning of your desktop, and you cannot close them.


Figure 19: eyeProcess with default desktop applications

3.8.1. Closing an application
To close an open application, simply select it by clicking on its name in the panel with a sorted list of processes in eyeProcess and click on the “End Process” button. Note that if there is more than one running copy of one application, you will close only one of the copies.

3.9. eyeControl: control panel
eyeControl is both a system settings application where you can select all your desktop settings and preferences, and a system administration menu where you can change the behavior of your system if you are registered as root superuser.

To open eyeControl, click on “System Settings” in the eyeBar system panel.

3.9.1. Changing your desktop settings
When you open eyeControl as a regular user, you will see three groups: “Personal data”, “Design” and “System” (see Figure 20).

You will also see how much space you have for your account in the lower right of the eyeControl window.


Figure 20: General User System Settings

In the "Personal data" menu, you can change your user information, password and language that you use in this system. To do any of these operations, first click on the settings panel where you want to go, change / add the necessary areas and click on the “Save Changes” button to save them.

In the “Appearance” menu, you can change the wallpaper of your desktop (or restore the default eyeOS wallpaper if you changed them before), and change the theme of your desktop from the available themes for this eyeOS system.

Finally, in the “System” menu you can select applications that will automatically load when you log in as a user (this way you can add a new application, for example, open eyeFiles every time you log in), or delete the current ones. It is not recommended that you uninstall desktop applications with a plug-in, as you can make your account unusable without administrator configuration.
You can also change the placement of your eyeFiles in the file manager menu, and change your default eyeNav start page in the Web browser menu.

3.9.2. Changing system behavior
Note that you must be logged in as root superuser in order to be able to see and update the system control panel.

To change the options and behavior of your system, simply open eyeControl as the root superuser and you will see the new “Administration” menu (see Figure 21).


Figure 21: eyeControl as root superuser General administration
The “System” menu in the “Administration” panel allows you to update some system options, such as the host name of the system (which appears in the browser header after the username), and some options such as allowing new users to register in your system, permission to create shared directories , the default system language and the theme of the login menu that is used.

To update some of the options, simply change their values ​​to new ones and click on the “Save Changes” button.

Note that you can also completely uninstall your eyeOS from this panel by entering the superuser password and clicking the “Remove eyeOS” button. This is useful when you want to completely remove your eyeOS installation, and you cannot do this because of the permissions assigned to the eyeOS files during the installation.

Note that uninstalling your eyeOS cannot be undone. Please do this only when you and all users on your system have saved all the important data. User Management
The “Users” menu allows you to create new users by clicking on the “Create” button and filling out the form.

You can also edit current users (for example, to assign them permission to access a new group that you just created or change their password) by selecting the user you want to change and clicking on the “Change” button.

Finally, you can delete the user and all data by selecting the user and clicking the “Delete” button.

Note that you cannot delete the superuser, and this operation cannot be undone.
Group Management The “Groups” menu allows you to create new groups to collaborate with users in a group. This is one of the most important options inside eyeOS because it allows you to create shared folders between users so they can work with them in a group.

To create a new group, simply create it with the “Create” button and enter the name of the group.

Once a group has been created, it will not be automatically assigned to any user. You can then enter the
“Users” menu and edit users to assign them to a new group.

Next time, when these users log in under their account and enter the eyeGroups folder in the “Folders” category in eyeDock, they will see their new group and will be able to copy and manage the files in it. Managing repositories
Repositories are something very important in eyeOS, as they allow you to install applications from the eyeSoft application automatically, without having to download or upload anything to your system.

If you have an eyeOS repository URL and would like to add it to your list of repositories, you can install the software from there by simply clicking on the “Create” button and entering a new repository URL.

The next time you update eyeSoft, you will also see applications from that repository. Installing new software
To install new software in your eyeOS, you can do this from the eyeSoft application repository, or by downloading the prepared package for eyeOS (usually called eyepackages) under your superuser into your home folder and clicking on it.

To install new software through eyeSoft, simply open it by clicking on the “Applications” icon on the desktop and click on “Install Applications”. The eyeSoft package manager opens.

The first thing you should do every time you open eyeSoft is to click on the “Update” button, this way it can update the sources of programs and show you the latest available packages and applications for installation (see Figure 22).


Figure 22: Updating eyeSoft

To install an application, simply click on it in the application list and click on the “Install” button. The installation process will begin, displaying a brief information about the application, and asking you to agree to the terms of the license by clicking on the “Accept” button.

Then the application will be downloaded and installed on your system. Wait for the message “Package installed successfully” and then close the window.

You can now launch your new application from the Applications folder. Note that each application that you install will be available to all users on your system.

To remove an application, simply select it (note that the installed message will appear next to the application in the list), and click on the “Delete” button. The application will be uninstalled from your system.

Finally, to search the list of applications, simply enter the word you want to find and click the “Search” button. The list will be updated according to your search results. To clear the search result and show all applications again, simply delete the search words and click on the “Search” button again.
