I have not been able to run windows programs (any) with the latest CuPuP. I even tried the WineTools addon from PuppyOS rc6 (which does run windows programs fairly well but is a significantly larger distro). On the plus side, video worked well. Firefox stalled/shut down with many tabbed windows open, but on restart could bring back all the the windows (the stalling is probably related to Firefox memory leaks more than CuPup or Puppy for that matter). Even with those shortcomings and it being built on a older base, I still like it quite a bit. It has a nice screen layout, it is fast even compared to other derivatives I like (TeenPup and PuppyOS), and the iso size is perfect for my needs.


I don't know what the problem is, but I just booted up with the latest .iso, and clicking the icon for winecfg works, as does uTorrent. Like dingo mentioned, CuPup isn't set to run .exes with wine, so you just have to right-click any .exe and click set run action. Type "wine" and hit enter. That's it. From then on, clicking an .exe will run it properly.

If that doesn't fix it, you may have a bad .iso. Try downloading again.

The run action will be preset in the next release to make things just a little easier.

Hope that helps.

Sorry, I forgot to add in my last post. Xine doesn't appear to be connectiing properly to the radio stations listed. It does work properly for local files.


I just tried this on a stock puppy 2.17.1 install, and it doesn't work. So, I think this is a Gxine problem or a Puppy problem in the 2.17.1 release, but it's not CuPup's fault. If there is a newer version of Gxine available, I'll maybe include it in the next release to try and fix the problem.

Thanks for the report, dmoore. I try to test everything, but some things sneak by. Very Happy

Sub_title: or whining about wine
 

Thanks for the replies back. Setting the run action for wine to automatically run *.exe would be a great boon for linux challenged users such as myself. For some reason, when I tried to change the run action on individual files it would not work, but I will give it another try, at least until the new CuPup comes out. Thanks sketchman for your work on CuPup, it is still my favorite derivative so far.

your run action must be:

Code:
wine "$@"


please, you must leave one space between wine and "$@" remember that it' a your error if wine don't work, because is is fully working. find yourself what errors have you done

To those interested. There's been a major setback in development. All my work on CuPup is gone. All that's left are the last 2 .isos. So, I can steal some of my work from them, but it's pretty much like starting over from scratch. Actually, this could be good news. I'll have a second look at EVERYTHING in CuPup. It will smaller and faster because of this, I'm sure.

Some changes:
Grafburn will be replaced by Pburn.
Wine is now 0.9.59(those guys are busy these days)
Maybe new Gxine
Firefox 2.0.0.13
Smaller size. Very Happy
