PostPosted: Thu 06 Sep 2018, 19:43    Post subject: ROX in LxPupSc
Subject description: Fixed with ROX from BK's Werewolf
 

G'day peebee,

My apologies for the lack of clarity in my post about my inability to set up ROX as I like it in your latest 64-bit LxPupSc.

That Rox (as the fortunate-for-me fallback in your LxPupSc Pups) doesn't allow movement of the column lay-out from the default.
So I ran woodenshoe-wi's modified 64-bit ROX pet in the hope of a lay-out fix.
I could move the columns with this pet installed but not permanently as each new ROX opened had the old default lay-out.

And I had forgotten that you meant this Pup series to prefer a non-ROX+non-JWM environment; I've been using the previous Pup's savefile with each recent updated version so miss the original first-start-up that earlier I had switched away from each time.
I'm sorry to say I find LXDE and PcManFM a bit too different and cumbersome compared to ROX/JWM - perhaps, it's just a case of the 'devils I know'.

Like you, I would like to see from someone interested, a full 64-bit BionicPup to complement your very nice 32-bit versions.

David S.

Postscript:
Just now, I tried an old 32-bit ROX (that is good in 32-bit Pups with an intractable ROX) in an LxPupSc1806(+3) but the result was not too good Shocked (screenshot) .
So renewing the Pup's savefile and rebooting, in this same Pup, I then tried a 64-bit ROX from another 64-bit Pup (BK's Werewolf) that has my desired default lay-out.
And now it's 'all good' Laughing (screenshot).
The good ROX file (ROX-Filer) I put in the directory /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/ , running from a sym-link (screenshot). I could have just copied it over the original ROX-Filer.

So now I have fixes for my minor issues with LxPupSc64 Very Happy while using it in not quite the expected way Embarassed .

PCMANFM is displaying chronic freezes on LxPupSc64.

I've reinstalled several times (frugally) with the same result.
This seems to happen when i open a second tab and then try to switch back to the first...

Any help would be appreciated with this very fine pup.

Which version of LxPupSc64 are you using, & which kernel? I am using 18.03 with 4.14.47 kernel, & can open several tabs & switch between. (in a terminal, uname -r will give kernel detail). Could also be a video issue - trying the modesetting driver may help. (exit to prompt, run xorgwizard, select modesetting & run xwin).
