.

Hi.

It was my understanding that the more recent puppy distros are supposed to be binary compatible with the Ubuntu repos.

Can someone explain, or provide a link to an explanation, how to download and install binaries for the mathematical package Maxima in Xenialpup CE 7.5 ?

Thank you.

Here's a simple trick I use:

Go to the first page in the thread you are interested in. Look where your browser shows the URL of that page, and note that the address contains "t=<some number>". This is the thread number. For this thread it is 106479.

Now go to your search engine and just include "t=..." in your search, for example:

murga "t=106479" palemoon

In Google the first entry that comes up for me is a link to the first page of this thread. Then at the bottom of that Google entry, I click on "More results from murga-linux.com" and that brings up all the other hits on "palemoon" within this thread.

It's not perfect because the search will also hit on some places in other threads that have cross-linked into this thread, but it's still pretty useful.

There's an additional trick: if you're looking for posts by a specific forum member, make a note of their "joined date" and add that to the search criteria. (This works better than using their member name because it only hits on posts BY that member, not posts where that member was merely MENTIONED by somebody else.)

Hello.

Can someone please tell me the meaning of the attached error message?

Xenialpup CE 7.5 / 25 Nov 2017 with latest updates


hi Ether,

it's an error relating to pmcputemp a small tray app that shows cpu temperature. unfortunately it doesn't work on every computer and doesn't work in a virtual machine, so i've removed it in my later pups.

to stop the error move /root/Startup/pmcputemp1 to /root/Startup/disabled ... or simply delete it

Thanks.

Although it's not what I was looking for (search all the posts in specific thread), I bookmarked it for possible future use.

That worked. Thank you.

This thread -- Xenialpup CE 7.5 / 25 Nov 2017 -- has 779 posts.

I could not find a list anywhere in this thread of the known issues and fixes for the "xenialpup-7.5-uefi.iso 2019-Feb-24 11:51:38 324.7M" download,

and I could not figure out how to search all 779 posts in this thread to find a solution to the specific problem I was seeking help for.

Is there a way for a newcomer like me to "help myself" answer my questions? I'd hate to wear out my welcome by constantly posting questions that have already been answered because I can't search the thread for answers that are already posted.

hi Ether,

quickpet >> puppy search engine might give better results when looking for answers.
quickpet >> help>>installed bugfixes lists all fixes so far

but just post in this thread if you need help with xenialpup or in the beginners/users section for general questions

Subject description: Palemoon Updater does not work

.
Hello.

Just downloaded XenialPup 7.5 32bit.

Palemoon is not latest version so I tried to use the "Palemoon Updater" item in the "internet" menu.

No joy, see attached images.

Is this a known bug? Is there a fix?

Thank you.

PS: I'm hardwired to my router, My internet connection is working fine. I am using XenialPup and Palemoon to post this.
