Thanks Bigpup

following tempestuous directions after installing usbhid pet on link you sent

sh-4.1# modprobe usbhid
sh-4.1# modprobe evdev

No that pet made no difference still no FF. I am most probably wrong as I don't know anything about compiling modules.... but I think the logitech module may have been compiled with force feedback disabled.....just a guess

Is there any issue with "Get Flash"? When i try it, its claims there is no internet connection, even if I am connected all the way so to say.

Install the Get Flash update on page 1 of this thread.


Update to all versions of Lucid - To install Flashplayer if needed, please update this GetFlash pet -> http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=74491 Or use Google Chrome which has Flashplayer built-in http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=630570#630570

I do not know any work around on this.

Any ideas?

I had a look at what is ticked by default when you "clear private data" in Firefox and I see that "offline website data" is not checked so I did a google search on that and came up with this comment:
"Offline Website Data: HTML 5 defines a mechanism which allows Web pages to store information and pre-cached data within your browser. Depending on what information winds up being stored, this data itself can cause privacy concerns."
http://browsers.about.com/od/firef2/ss/ff3clearprivate_5.htm
I wonder if Seamonkey and Firefox have changed their behaviour to accomodate the HTML5 capabilities. I think I might go back to browsers that gave me more control over what data is collected. (or at least make me FEEL like I have more control...)

goolwa_pup,

Try using this program to load the driver module needed.
menu->System->BootManager configure bootup->click here to add a new module

Found this info about force feedback. The usbhid pet may or may not work for Lucid Puppy, but the other stuff may help you.

FYI both Chrome & Chromium retain page level zoom info even when the cache etc are cleared. This of course means that they retain data on both domains & pages visited.
IE8 seems o/k but I suspect that this is common with modern browsers.

For anyone wanting to test their browser:

1. Copy the address at the top of this page then zoom in to an insane level. Shocked
2. Take whatever action is necessary to clear the cache/history/cookies etc in your browser & then exit it.
3. Re-launch your browser and paste the address you copied into the address bar and visit it. If it is still large data is being retained and computer forensic scientists can rest easy in their beds. Laughing

(This is getting a bit off topic)


Just tried this in Firefox 13.01 (which also set itself up to update automatically by default some time ago without asking).

I don't see any data manager under the tools tab, but this may depend on the privacy settings.

Rather unsettling is the finding that, when privacy browsing mode is chosen in:

Edit/preferences/privacy/history/custom

cookies can only be deleted manually, and one can't remember passwords in the browser.

Presumably, the domain data is forgotten when one unchecks the

privacy/history/Remember search and form history option.

Thanx Bigpup

Yes... wine does implement Force Feedback (FF) but not perfectly and my wheel is supported. The game I am playing also has a FF option. The wheel was working in non FF mode so I installed logitech drivers through wine hoping to get FF....with no luck. I down loaded a linux FF test utility and I think its basically saying FF isn't switched on in Puppy. Apparently any 2.6 + kernel should support FF. I know FF on my wheel works. I am no computer expert by any stretch of the imagination... but from my reading I think FF needs to be enabled in the kernel from boot. Does the module need to have FF enabled when created? I do not know how to implement this.

I am hoping someone here on the forum has a Puppy FF solution. I want to use Puppy not only because of its simplicity and speed and the fact it runs the software I want to use...... But mainly because its the only OS that handles my realtek on-board sound card perfectly....... on both windows and ubuntu (to a lesser extent) sounds snap crackle and pop...

Cheers

You could get libGLEW 1.5 for Lucid from here. http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/libglew1.5

This is for GL so Xorg_High or a proprietary video driver would need to be installed (I am pretty sure anyway).

Thanks! Much appreciated. So it need that kind of graphic drivers.
I wonder if that works on a small Net book Smile Well future will tell.

Hi All

Is there a way to enable force feedback for steering wheels in puppy 528. I am running grand prix legends through wine version 1.5 (plays very well btw) but there is no force feedback available through my logitech momo wheel. Can puppy be tickled into giving force feedback?

Cheers

Maybe something here will help you.
