Thanks DaveS. I try changing those and see what happens. I tired changing the /usr/local/bin/defaulttexteditor and it works well. I will modify my last post.

wosifat, I just installed the three (3) dot pets and python woks. One needs to install the two (2) libraries (libdb-4.4. pet and TclTk-patched4py-8.4.pet) first then the dot pet ( python-2.5.2.pet ). Otherwiise the installer complains about missing dependencies. One also has to reboot the system to ensure everything is loaded poperly and changes take place. I hope this helps. Otherwise you can try the tinypython that Barry talks about in his blog.

Still nothing.
Feel like I've kind of taken over this thread. I appreciate all the help though.

Soory, wosifat, I reach my limit on python. Hopefully, someone else may have an idea.

Here is how Box Pup looks on my monitor.

There is real merit in this derivative. Thanks to Openbox, I suspect, I can run it in 128Mb RAM - just - with a bundle of HW attached by starting up in pfix=nox, then running xorgwizard. So, gray, if you are able to trim just a little more fat from the running GUI it will open up a whole load more possibilities. Resist the siren voices about browsers; experience suggests that Opera is exactly right. Not sure where n4l has gone - did you contact him?

more and more Elegant!

Here is a transparent skin I use for the clock. I put it in /usr/share/xonclock/skins and change the path in /root/.xonclockrc to point to it instead of the default png. Changing the hand and bezel colors to black works for most of my usual backgrounds. I also disable the month and day in the clock and use tint to display it instead.

Happy simplicity

Here is the .xonclockrc file I use with the png above. It sets the hand number and bezel colors and thicknesses.

Very nice derivative to work with, even if the latest is so far unavailable to me (neither source on p.1, .ca is out for `til end of November it seems and the redirect goes nowhere href="") - simply a thanks to gray for making such a useful thing .. almost architectural in form and function as working art. Have been having fun with the 'old' P400 boxpup-r1 recently and funny that Marv did a redo of the analog clock since I wasted a bit of time trying to do a clockface from scratch and vastly disappointed at my poor efforts (it should be fair simple but the devil's in the details when I try). Good job and thanks to all for the tips & as always a work in progress is unfolding like a bloom.

I have found that opera crashes only in my hotmail account. when I login in hotmail, I can not see my INBOX, the screen just shows it for a part of a second and than it clears. can anybody help find out what is wrong. other accounts work well, just with hotmail something goes wrong. Crying or Very sad [/img]
PS: I can see normal hotmail window only after I click on button: fit to width and after that on button: reload

I've been using Boxpup for most of the week and i'm very impressed. Its very solid and really smartly presented.
But I have one small problem - I installed the dotpup handler but cannot install any pups! I tried to open the pup with all the petget scripts but no joy so I had to change the pup to zip and extract and install it.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

EDIT - Fixed, see DaveS's post below. Thanks.

virtualman - i had the same problem with opera, I think its the way it handles flash and .div html commands. There have been lots of problems with the new redesign.
I have installed seamonkey 1.1.8 which displays it ok. I changed the 'mail' button on wbar to open seamonkey so i have both browsers!

Headfound, the dotpup issue exists with NOP too. Try here for a FIX http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=34577&start=30
