@puppyluvr...

have you played around any with the new systray module...
im eagar to try that one too.. (i think a RC release of open GEU is the only distro using it)... but it successfully incorporates a system tray (that other programs can use) in e17...

Very Happy runtt21,
I have posted a comment twice, but they wont stick. There is a question about system req., but my response posts dont show up.??
Been a youtube member 1 yr+, never had this prob...hmmm
Answer the poor guy, please!!
Answer: System requirements= anything with 128mb+ ram and P2/400mhz+ CPU
Install = full, frugal, live CD, USB, SD, (Darn near anything)(You know)!!
Ill keep trying to post a comment....

PS.... If you can get xvidcap to record a Buddapup, ( 217/400) on your machine, why not post it, as I cant!!
My video mem is lacking!!

Thx....Jay....

Puppulvr,

First I want to let you know that I love Buddapup-dingo and have no doubt that interest in it will only increase, I read through your thread e-15 and saw you were a little discouraged in the response to it, but I am certain that once word gets out more people will try it.
I see this thread has not been posted to in a while so I do hope you are still working on it.

I don't think a lot of people are as familiar with enlightenment as other desktops. I know as a regular Archlinux user that has used many different desktops I like enlightenment the best, even though it can still be a little buggy at times.
And in looking around on the Puppy sites I think yours is the only puppy derivative that is using enlightenment ?
It works great, please keep up the good work!

The main reason I am posting though is to let you know that I suspect the iso on the puppylinux.ca site may be bad.
I downloaded it 4 times and the md5sum was the same incorrect code each time. I burned two of them anyway and tried them, because I really wanted to try Buddapup, but they did not work.
So I searched on Google and found a copy on a free hosting site, you must have uploaded to, and it work perfectly the first time. Both the md5sum was correct and it ran well.

thanks,
Tom

EDIT**
I almost forgot, I was mobilized to Ft. Sill with the Army reserves last year and I got to go to the Indian parade / festival in Chickasha last year while I was there,.
I really liked Oklahoma and Chickasha, you have a nice town.
I still have friends in Lawton.

Very Happy Hello,
@tom4jesus, Thanks, and thanks for the heads up about the files on .ca, I will check it out..
I was not even aware my stuff was on .ca, as I had transfered it all to .asia, as in my link below, due to my directory drawing some bad problems to Caneris site, .ca...

No, Serenity is not forgotten, quite to the contrary, an update is in the works..Another member had expressed an interest in releasing an e-17 variant as well, and I was awaiting it to come out, but have not heard from him lately..
Really, other than updating a few programs, and streamlining a few things, I don`t want to mess with it too much, as I`m pretty happy with it..Ive tried a 4.10 and 4.12 based version, but lost a lot of stability..
Lately, Mozilla has been a real pain, so Serenity may see a Browser change, IDK..And Opera`s cache addiction is annoying as well....Maybe Midori??? So far the Mozilla crash problem hasnt effected Flock, but its a big, slow beast....
Also been playing with Zigberts Pwidgets and Enlightenment, with varying results...
I am also working with E-16 a lot more lately, and have a few possibilities in the works...
I actually like it better than E-17, as it is much more adaptable...
So, no, Puppy hasnt heard the last of Enlightenment outta me, LOL, just that this whole shuffling around thing has slowed me up a bit...
Anyhow, thanks for trying Serenity, I hope it serves you well, as it does me...
Jay....... Very Happy

Hi Jay,

I checked the md5sum and the one on .ca is the same as .asia

Maybe post what the md5sum should be or re-upload the iso to .asaa so I can move it to .ca as a mirror.

Eric

There appears to be a live e17/compiz "ecomorph" now...

Would this be feasable in Puppy?

Very Happy Hello,
Well, ironically enough, as I post this, I am on EcoMorph...I`ve just gotten it , so havent really had the chance to check it out thoroughly yet..
So far, about 12 hrs into it, and I`ll say this...
They`re right...It is not stable...Iceweasel especially...
Overall though, its really cool..
IDK where the 700 mb is though...Not enough there to explain it yet...
I just want to see how they achieved E-17 and E-16 interchangeability...
I would love to offer an E-16 / E-17 option at boot...
The Compiz / Enlightenment combo is SWEET...
This can be done in Puppy...
(By someone a whole lot smarter than me...LOL)
The resource req. are fairly minimal..
IMHO it has TOO much AutoConfigure stuff going on..
I still havent found how to manually configure half of it..

@That said, Buddapup is faster, Ripple is more beautiful, and Macpup Foxy E-17 is easier to use...The GUI is quirky still, although a lot better than the last release I tried..
I like it, its just too much..(And not enough)..
However, the engine behind it, Compiz using Enlightenment , has promise..Its nice and smooth...
But...Compiz, with Cairo behind (on top of ???) it, ,,, (IE Ripple), is faster and makes better use of Compiz, IMO..

Someone, IE Dinky, Tombh, ect.. with more knowledge of Compiz could make it work I`m sure.. Needless to say I shall hack it up anyhow...Gotta learn something from it, right... Very Happy Very Happy

PostPosted: Thu 04 Jun 2009, 14:15    Post subject: application menu  

greetings

this is my favorite puppy, thanks for all the hard work!

i successfully have serenity up and running, and put the shrooms background in with the ice flames from the buddapup_e17 and with a few other tweaks it looks and works AWESOME.

I have added several packages with the get controller, which reported they were installed correctly. however, they do not show up on the application menu. can anyone tell me how to add them? i managed to run one from the command line but that is it.

also, how can i start the other DE that came with the pup? i was going to crank it up just to see if the programs show up there.


thanks

Very Happy Hello,
To get installed packages to show up in the menu, open a terminal and type "fixmenus"...This will correct the Jwm menu...
Then in the Enlightenment menu, click "reload Puppy menu"..
You may have to restart X to make them show up..("ctrl-alt-bkspace" and then xwin enlightenment_start)...
(Oh yea, to switch from Enlightenment to Jwm, drop out of X (ctrl-alt-bkspace" and type "xwin jwm" and hit enter.....)
If you have any problems/questions let me know...
...Jay...aka Puppyluvr.... Very Happy
