So how good if gpicview? Should I really uninstall it after running the wallpaper selector?

In menu, "Desktop->JWM configuration->Application launch buttons in tray", does not work.
The problem is in file "/usr/local/jwmconfig2/panel-buttons". It uses the program "bc", which is not present.

Very crude work around: Install "bc". Use "Application launch buttons in tray". Uninstall "bc".
Too lazy to go through "/usr/local/jwmconfig2/panel-buttons" replacing every call to "bc". Besides there could be other scripts that use "bc" in the same way. So I wrote a very small bash script that reads an arithmetic expression from stdin and writes the result to stdout just like "bc -l". It uses bash's inbuilt maths capabilities.

I have attached "bc.gz", which contains only the script "bc". Copy the file "bc.gz" to /root/my-applications/bin, (or any other place on the path). Click on it and then click on "Yes".

PostPosted: Thu 01 Jan 2009, 10:32    Post subject: Wallpaper setter does not work  

To return the wallpaper setter to full functionality, it is necessary to install either "fotox" or "gpicview".

The wallpaper setter could be made to work, but without it's "View" menu functioning.
This could be done my modifying the file "/usr/local/apps/Wallpaper/AppRun" so that it doesn't crash.
Or the wallpaper setter can be fooled into thinking it has either "fotox" or "gpicview" available.

I have no need of either "fotox" or "gpicview" in the puppy I intend to build on this base. I do want to have the wallpaper setter available, but I can happily live without the "View" menu.

So, I have added the following script as "/root/my-applications/bin/fotox":
Code:
#!/bin/bash
#fotox??
This script does nothing, but convinces the wallpaper setter that "fotox" is installed, so it works rather than crashing. If "View->Fotox" is clicked, nothing happens.

NOTE: If ever the real "fotox" is installed it does so into "/usr/bin", ("# which fotox" in normal Puppy412). It will always be found in the path before this bogus "fotox". So, in the wallpaper setter, clicking "View->Fotox" would then work.

Despite some initial difficulties caused by the use of DVI-D cable (instead of D-SUB) for the monitor and the mess that I have created by a small error in menu.lst in the grub partition (took me almost whole day to spot the problem Wink ) I have now successfully completed full hdd install and everything is fine (including SMP and dual core recognition)
Thank you Woolf Pup for creating another great Puppy

Network wizard in G_pup 1.2 won't detect my atheros wifi card.

Gives "fatal" error when trying to load ath_pci.. This card works fine in every

Doesn't seem to be any files or modules missing.

Were you using a previous pup_save?

Kernel_src to compile modules is here. Using kernel_src to compile the Nvidia modules will work on G_pup. Very Happy

Q1. All apps will run except modules that need to be re-compiled like virtualbox and nvidia.

Q2. Using Puppy Unleased.

Wolfpup

Don't usually use frugal; but have tried with live cd, frugal, and
full. Same result. Md5 and burn are good.
I'm not really bothered by this, as I don't have dual core comp.
yet. Of course others probably due, and I think ar5212 ath_pci
is fairly common.

Puppy 4.1.2 does detect my wired ethernet Realtek 8101 but g_pup 4.1.2 does not. Are there extra modules to be downloaded to make it work?

Thanks, but I wonder if you could tell us what exactly needs to be fixed so that we can do it in a remastered g_pup?

For the interested

I've got vmware running fine in g_pup.
using the instructions from http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=24867

I didn't understand Wolf pups suggestion that to compile for smp to use Puppy Unleased.
So what I tried was using Devx_412.sfs and the kernel_src-412_gpup.sfs
and it worked fine. The vmware found gcc ok and used it (?)

Since this vmware 2.05 worked well I wanted to get the latest vmware 2.51 running.
The problem was no xxx.tar.gz file for download only xxx.build which I'd never heard of before. A google later found that you run it as a normal bin file
./VMware-Player-2.5.1-126130.i386.bundle
this checks a few things and starts a installer. The really nice bit is it uninstalled the previous version then installed with no problems.

all seems to be running fine Shocked

Do I understand correctly that if I download the G-pup iso and copy it to my 16GB USB stick that I can boot from that USB stick?

Did you ever get Nvidia working with G_Pup 1.1


Sorry only just seen this Embarassed
I did not persevere as I have no problems with speed.
I notice the puplet has been updated.

What differences can one expect?
What programs will be faster? How much?
Are there any comparison tables?

I notice Barry is going to offer an optional SMP (multi core processor) compiled kernel with Woof. As these processors become more common we need to know what real life difference they can make? Smile
