Subject description: Now includes 3DCC and updated xcompmgr
 

I have just uploaded a new version of EZpup ... 2.1.7R2 ... to compliment the recent release of Puppy 2.17 and to maintain compatability with that release.

EZpup now also contains MU's 3DCC for great effects like window shadows, transparency, etc and is accompanied by an updated xcompmgr-1.1.3 that avoids prior problems with PETget.

Since the new package includes new libary files, you are strongly encouraged to reboot after installing. It is also recommended that any sfs unions be made before installing EZpup, just in case.

PkaG and MU will post mirror links as soon as those are available.

Enjoy!

Very Happy Now we are cooking
Barry has mentioned Ezpup on his developers blog.
http://www.puppylinux.com/news/index.php

I was creating a new Linux Tmxxine yesterday. Comprising of 2.17 + Ezpup with sfs; Open Office plus all the best progs.
For me it is the icing on the cake. Puppy 2.17 + Ezpup 2.17R2 + sfs
After 4 attempted compiles using Dougals script and only one success I decided I might wait till Puppy 2.18 . . . I think the problem is somehow related to lack of memory (I have 512MB ram - should be enough) on the hard disk

This however is an inspiration Smile I wonder if there will be an Ezpup 2.18 Smile
Onward and upward

Thanks Warren and our server hosts Smile

Hi Whodo,

Never really did pinpoint what when wrong the last time... but anyhow got this latest ezpup working...didn't really have time to mess around much so here's the steps which lead to this install

1) boot the latest puppy 2.17 (ie frugal install)
2) had an initial pupsave of only 32mb... so did a resizing +256mb to a 288mb
3) didn't know about this release, so installed the earlier ezpup 2.17 from my-applications folder...installed ok except that it hung at the pet checking dependencies.... so after more than 5 mins just restarted x...everyting seemed in order except that package not registered in petget manager
4) browsed puppyforum to report success...saw the new ezpup...downloaded and installed as before....SUCCESS ! and package installs, no hang and is registered with petget manager.

Mucho gracias

I solved my problem, by adding the corresponding prog entry to the quicklaunch config file.

Subject description: Having problems.
 

I just did a fresh frugal install of 2.17 "dancer" and followed it up with the latest EZpup. I'm having a few issues that maybe you can explain:

1. All of my icons are missing, and have been replaced by what appears to be a "placeholder" type of icon.

2. Did you get rid of the cursor selection tool that was in the previous version?

3. The Blinky taskbar icon retains a white background instead of one that matches the taskbar itself.

Any ideas? Previous versions of this program have been great, and I have enjoyed "pimping" my puppy!

Thanks.

I just want to thank you for expending the time and effort to create this for us. It transforms an already nice Puppy 2.17 into the deluxe edition.

Very well done!
Very Happy

Sounds like a problem with the globicons file that normally resides at /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer. You can copy the globicons file from /root/Choices/ROX-Filer and restart IceWM.

Nope. Sounds like your EZpup didn't install properly. Did you do an md5sum on the dotpet? Did you wait until PETget said the install was completed? Just asking, not accusing.

Yep, mine does that now too. Don't know why because the settings haven't been changed. I have resorted to replacing
Code:
-bg ""
with
Code:
-bg "#389389"
in the preferences file at /root/.icewm/preferences

The nvidia button in 3DCC (maybe I should contact MU) does not seem to work. I am sure it did in earlier versions of the program.

Any advice welcome

I think that's something to do with there currently being no Nvidia drivers for Puppy 2.17, or so I'm led to believe.

EZpup-2.1.7R2 doesn't work with 2.16, just a blank desktop appears, and theres no wallpaper on background.

EDIT:
EZpup works now by adding
Code:
rox -p=/root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin
to /usr/sbin/delayedrun
