THANK YOU, Todd,

This is great! Like your 2.13Lite, which I have used since it appeared as my main Puppy, 2.14Lite combines the essentials of what's good in Barry's latest versions, with the ability to add only what you want. I had extensively customized 2.13Lite, and when I upgraded to 2.14Lite EVERYTHING came across just right, not a tweak needed. This is how an upgrade should work, and how I have never before seen a Puppy upgrade work.

Litepup is a good version.
I think this versin was missed `auto upload dhcp for ethe0 - connect via ethernet card'?
You put the ghostcript in this distro but I d't saw the gsview bin?
For all, thank you a lots.
I will play with your litepup-2.14. I think this is the reel common edition (not the 215CE?)

I am not sure about this. I haven't had any problems. I connect to the internet through a proxy server so Ethernet is the only way I connect to the internet.

I really hate gsview, so I left it out. Xpdf and Adobe Reader are both good choices. (Typically most documents are 5.0.X compatible so I use Adobe Reader 5.0.X). MU has a dotpup for Xpdf. Ghostscript is required for the printing subsystem, so that is why it was left in. Additionally, all of the fonts, except the DejaVu font are Ghostscript fonts.

Thank you for the positive feedback!

Thank you for your fast reply
I think that: Your Litepup-2.14 is a education distro. With it I can study many thing about to add softs, remove something.
I add the gsview in litepup-2.14 because I need it to (print) view .pdf and .ps file. I want to keep litepup-2.14 so so flat (for that I don't use Acroreader..?)
The first time I start up the Wizard Wizard, I d'nt saw the button eth0 in the dialog, then I choose the LOAD button, but it can't load the driver for my card (8139too). This was'nt happened if I use the pup214 final release of Barry Kauler.
Sincerly,

great distro - normally I roll my own by removing various bits from the std and then merging in my own customizations which include wine abd opera but recently I have been playing around with using seamonkey and OO.o externally for variious reasons so I decided to try your Lite version as a base.
All I had to remove was xORG and add wine and I had a distro perfectly suited to my requirements - less than 5mins work.
Nice job.

A couple of questions, Todd,

I guess it's reasonable to expect there might be some of the problems of 2.14 final in 2.14Lite. I'm wondering if that's the case here. I can't get printing to work. I have a garden variety HP 2100 laser that's worked easily in some prior puppies, as 2.13Lite but not in 2.14Lite.

Also a menu size anomaly in both 2.14 and 2.14Lite - the Utilities and Documents menus display about double size with raggedly enlarged icons.

Finally, and probably completely unrelated, PSI displays only a handful of items, which I presume is because of MU's hosting difficulties?

Todd; For a REALLY great idea, look at these posts:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=100675#100675

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=12285


If a better version of Puppy 2 could be made into several versions with JUST
1 browser in each version (Firefox, or Opera, etc.), & media (XMMS & Mplayer).
This for a core Puppy that'd be able to swap extra SFS in & out while running.
The extra SFS files would be "groups of like apps.": Office, Graphics, Games, etc.

Dougal, WhoDo, amish, & I think it's the way to build an advanced Puppy distro.
Join Dougals discussion as I think it's the most relevant, & lets make it happen!

My problem with all of this is that I am a purist. Whenever a Google something, the phrase I Google nearly always includes "gpl". I really like my build of Puppy because it is about as pure GPL as you can get (not including the "zdrv"). I really like using Java, Microsoft Word, WordPerfect and other proprietary products, but to take the time to host a "puplet", I really feel strongly about staying with GPL. Having said this, I understand your desire to have a standards compatible browser am willing to work towards replacing Dillo with Firefox.

I wrote above -

" . . .I have a garden variety HP 2100 laser that's worked easily in some prior puppies, as 2.13Lite but not in 2.14Lite."

I went back and checked, and found that the printer was not working in 2.13 lite either, although it was and is in 2.12. Printing seems to be one of those fuzzy areas in Puppy generally. xpdq, CUPS, etc. I still do my business printing (and scanning for sure!) in my other OS, But would still like to evntually be able to use Puppy for these real world jobs. Everything else is pretty great.

What's the best way to proceed with getting printin to work in 2.14Lite, which I plan on using until something better comes along.

BTW I think Sunburnt's suggestion was very good.

I have a PCL printer here at work and printing stopped working when Barry moved from Gimpprint to Gutenprint. It is supposed to be just a name change, but. . . The change took place between 2.12 and 2.13, which explains your problem with 2.13 and 2.14.

I have had incredible success with the CUPS dotpup that "pakt" made (it is in my archive). It is quite large, however. I was able finally able to get Gutenprint to work here at work by telling it that it is a serial printer (even though it is a network printer).

I installed it. Works fine. Thanks.

This was because a 48x48 icon had been used in the Utilies menu for Bluefish. When I exchanged it for an xpm icon all the items in Utilities resumed their normal small size.

I agree, Sunburnt's suggestion is a very good one. I never realized how easy it was to make a squash file. I am going to be exploring what I can do with squash files.
