perdido supplied these with help from Semme.

Both work after a reboot.
However I prefer for banking to boot a pristine Puppy,
add my stored bookmarks, and usually Slimjet and off I go.

@cthisbear

I supposed to consider that however those drivers were kernel modules which was very sensitive to kernel versions. X-Slacko Slim currently uses 4.17.x kernel while the given drivers was for 4.1.x so it is mismatch

firmware drivers will work just fine regardless of kernel version so I will add it to my fdrv collection

The confirmed working sources for the driver cthisbear is talking about are here

if you are fluent in bash scripting take a look at load-power-cfg and power_gui scripts as well as check-power in /root/Startup


I found no errors on those scripts, but
Code:
xset -q

showed that DPMS was disabled at bootup.

I have placed a script in /root/Startup like this:

Code:
!#/bin/bash
sleep 30
xset +dpms &


and now on reboots the monitor shuts down automatically at the given period of time set with ppower tray applet. Problem solved! Thanks!

Side note: if I omit the initial 'sleep 30', dpms stays disabled, maybe because there are other power management scripts running at the same time that interfere with my script.

mistfire,

When I try to open tar.gz files I started getting this:

GConf error

GConf error: No database available to save your configuration: Unable to store a value at key '/apps/file-roller/general/migrate_directories', as the configuration server has no writable databases. There are some common causes of this problem: 1) your configuration path file /etc/gconf/2/path doesn't contain any databases or wasn't found 2) somehow we mistakenly created two gconfd processes 3) your operating system is misconfigured so NFS file locking doesn't work in your home directory or 4) your NFS client machine crashed and didn't properly notify the server on reboot that file locks should be dropped. If you have two gconfd processes (or had two at the time the second was launched), logging out, killing all copies of gconfd, and logging back in may help. If you have stale locks, remove ~/.gconf*/*lock. Perhaps the problem is that you attempted to use GConf from two machines at once, and ORBit still has its default configuration that prevents remote CORBA connections - put "ORBIIOPIPv4=1" in /etc/orbitrc. As always, check the user.* syslog for details on problems gconfd encountered. There can only be one gconfd per home directory, and it must own a lockfile in ~/.gconfd and also lockfiles in individual storage locations such as ~/.gconf

What should I do?

Version 4.4.r24 frugally installed and working well, thank you. I noticed that message 'updating layered sfs... next boot will be faster' is shown on every reboot. Will the next boot ever be faster, and the message go away?
