Sorry, you lost me. What did you do which was supposed to trigger Gnome MP? How do you know it wasn't? What application were you trying to launch? and what was the effect of Gnome MP not responding?

But before answering any of those, recalling that you installed a window-manager other than jwm, does this relate to the "stock" version or your modified version? Gnome MP seems to be related to the Gnome shell which, AFAIK, isn't included in the original build.

mike,
Not sure if u're talking about Gnome MPlayer, which I meant, one instance of it isn't responding & I need to kill it. It slows down my Acer.

I use JWM as it's included, not modified.

Then don't use abbreviations. It just wastes everyone's time trying to figure out what you really mean.

Hi guys yesterday I started compiling on 5.7 so it should work on 5.7.2
I made a version of Gimp 2.4.7,, It took a lot work but its worth it Smile personally I like it better than the latest its only 6MB and no extra deps, where as the one in Buster's repo is 110MB, I also made a really nice addon pet for gime, it has 105 extra brushes and 131 extra gradients.The reason why I like this version better than the latest you don't have to export png, jpg etc, you just same them. Plus it starts up really fast. Way less resources etc.

Next I made an older version Evince 464kb to replace ePDFView its way better, plus it does comic books and SVG etc, Its not just a PDF reader and less than 1/2MB its well worth it.

I also compiled the last inkscape lite with the ruler fixes, its works better than the one in the 5 series.

here's the links

http://smokey01.com/ttuuxxx/Slacko5.7/gimp_NLS-2.4.7-i386.pet <-- extra language files

http://smokey01.com/ttuuxxx/Slacko5.7/inkscapelite-0.36.3_patched-glib-rulers-i386.pet <-- main app

Also I think Uextract should also be included its very handy for large files http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1478639958&t=87864

And possibly update the puppy package manage, the one in 5 series doesn't allow you to download the packages just install them, which downloading them is also handy .
Also another Idea is maybe installing GT3 and apulse so people can install the latest Firefox if they wanted.

ttuuxxx.

You can, actually. You need to change 'Options' under 'Settings'.

Click on Settings (the crossed spanner/screwdriver thingy).
Click on the 'Options' tab.
3rd checbox down, tick 'Use traditional, non-auto, user interface.'

Then hit 'OK'. It'll shut down, and re-start in the old style, complete with the ability to just download stuff rather install it...

Which I believe is what you want, yes?

@ ttuuxxx:-

Actually, I'm in Sailor's 5.7.1 at the moment; the 'upgrade' he did on the 'classic' 5.7.0.

Hang about. You say you're in 5.7? Wasn't that the no-PAE version Micko put together, built off 5.7.0?

Now, my 5.7.0 has the 'classic' package manager, which allows downloads-only, if that's what you want. So I don't quite see the problem.....though I believe the very last 'face-lift' on the PPM finally removed the ability to 'download only'. That's what has been 'decreed' by Woof-CE.

And Mike built this with the most recent Woof-CE build formula.....or so I believe.

(*shrug*)

You've got me confused now!! Laughing So; why was 5.7 done differently? Hell, man, you go back a lot further with Pup than I do; I always thought that all Pups used to have the ability to download packages only, without installing.....it was a standard function of the older-style PPM, wasn't it?

Yes it was the no-PAE Micko made, No option to download with it, it was the early days of this new package manager, I always like 2.14X better: I split the package manager into 2, so you just click the uninstall icon and it launches an uninstaller or the installer icon to install. I like big icons, lol

Mavrothal had made a .PET for the old PPM to keep downloads and save where one likes.

Maybe some relevant history, maybe not.

BTW, ttuuxxx, UExtract is one item I'm in full agreement with. Best extracter I've ever come across, and one of the first utilities I always install. Should be standard across all Pups.

PostPosted: Wed 20 Mar 2019, 20:22    Post subject: KEEP TRACK OF SLAXXX 5.7  

Hi All,

ttuuxxx has applied his skills to create a new version of Slacko 5.7 which, like this, is binary compatible to Slackware 14.0. ttuuxxx has an in-depth knowledge of Linux and is a master at compiling applications while I excel only in compiling errors. Laughing

So, you may want to consider running Slaxxx 5.7. And even if you've become fond of this Puppy, I recommend that you follow the Slaxxx 5.7 thread to see what applications he's created. There's a good chance they will function OOTB on this Puppy. You'll find the Slaxxx 5.7 thread here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1022411#1022411
