Once 01micko has completed his testing, perhaps you could review your browser decision (or not!), gray? O10a might prove to be the way forward for all distros?

BoxPup sets a very high standard for puplets.

I consider this and the previous release works of art.

Great selection of software. Fast, stable, and simple.

A joy to use.

Thankyou.

Hi Gray

Absolutely superb - Firepup is good and fast, using it now - although I personally prefer Opera.

So - best of both worlds - loaded Opera10.sfs - Wonderful, can run both.

Thanks again for an outstanding Puppy with stunning looks and usability.

Very best regards - Ray.

Hi Gray

Thank you for such a wonderful pupplet !

I ve been using Boxpup 4.1.2 for a few months as my only OS, and I can't wait to try this version... (downloading on a slow connection...)

Just a question : is it possible to get a french translation ?

Thank U again for such an excellent work Smile

Subject description: .. while waiting for the electrician (P421 barebones) . .
 

Gave P413boxpup a run, pleasantly surprised with Firepup (it is quite nimble and loads much quicker than many geckoes - doubtless its fx1series heritage and maybe fasterfox, never used that extension before). Also widgets - they work oki out of the box and save me a trifle as regards Conky (lol, after I get tired of them nibbling resources I usually dump in my ConkyStandard 'widget' and switch out that /root/Startup/<original widget starter> with a mainline to pwidgets-exec .. hmm, all of a sudden xerrslog gets much shorter Smile ). The vbar/hotpup mounter solution is nice (vertical orientation on the left should be a big plus for widescreen displays on desktop or lap/notebook if one likes mounting and status visible). Panel-choice .. Tint may appeal more than LX (pager seems primitive to me in LX particularly as only the contents of the workspace you're in are shown - jwm, xfce and afterstep pagers offer more functionality by far imho .. for those who like a visual aid rather than a workspace list). One should be careful of ones maus habits with Tint, however - rightclick on a window's tasklistbutton closes that window! Nope, not a context menu for actions - window byebye unless a save dialogue comes up in some apps. The LX taskbar menu might be okay if one isn't used to visual identification by a more-or-less 'standard' look to menu icons (mileage varies by driver, even so it's nice and clean) - actually I liked the non-icon'd rightclick mainmenu better. Wbar Cool and compatible/stable with most other wms as well if you like to switch.

Added a short raft of .pets - the following work well:
geany-0.16, medit-0.9.2 (petget pulled gtk-chtheme-0.3.1 for this one as a needed dependency), zedit-0.2.2, xpad-2.14-i386, pprocess-1.0, rox_filer-2.8-pup2, and blackbox (not the 'bare' -0.70.1 deal from ibiblio's repo, btw). Might even play with trying some extensions and/or themes for Firepup (see if I can bog it down, Laughing ).

Thanks, Gray.
. . and Bless the kind soul who included/made a local help page for Fotoxx… Smile

gray, thanks for the new Boxpup.
But I never thought I'd see the day that I'd be upset you ditched Oprea. I've become a Facebook addict, and Firepup, being based on Firefox 1, doesn't play nicely with Facebook Chat (Opera doesn't do it well, either.) I had to get rid of it and install Firefox (delete the folder /usr/lib/Firepupvoo3 or /usr/lib/firefox and the hidden folder /root/.mozilla/firefox) to get back to Firefox. Just playing with Pwidgets for this new distro and liking it so far, but I miss how Conky displayed the CPU usage and time in the menu bar. CPU usage, I can bring myself to live without, but the clock sure would be useful for those browsing sessions squeezed in before work. Anyway to put a clock in the menu bar? And I don't think I need the clipboard manager in the taskbar, so is there any way I can remove that?
Other than that, so far so good. Thanks again.
PS. I put my wbar at the bottom and like it down there, but if you have more than a few windows open their presence in the tint tasbar at the bottom is obstructed. Have we figured out how to raise the wbar just a bit?

Great Puplet, I tried it out because I like the thunar/pcman style filemanager over rox. I also love the wbar. Firepup is very snappy. One problem I am having is that .pup files are opening with xarchiver instead of launching the installer. Is there a way to associate them with the installer? If not how do I get to the installer to open the pups?

I upgraded my system already and I'm loving it!
The best puplet since first version.
Thanks Gray

1. Love BoxPup.
Installed on an internal Linux partition.
My main OS, over Win2000Pro and Ubuntu.
Updated 4.1.0 to 4.1.3

2. Trying out pCD 0.4 simple CD-audio Player.
When I place a commercial audio CD in the drawer and close it...
The Xfmedia player auto-runs, displays only the 1st track and plays only that track.
I'm forced to use +->Other->CD to detect all of the tracks on the CD.
Why aren't all tracks auto-detected and displayed?
Seems unnecessary to be forced to do that manually.
How would I specify that pCD auto-run instead of Xfmedia?
Like the fact that Xfmedia can rearrange the tracklist.

3. When I updated BoxPup to 4.1.3 it solved the problem I had with Pudd.
When making image backups of the contents of partitions...
If I chose sda1 for backup...
sr0 would be appended...
And when Pudd began the backup process...
It would cause rapid scrolling of test on screen and screeching and pink noise from the PC's internal speaker.
A workaroun is to have an optical disk in the drive during the operation, in which case sr0 is not appended, and the backup proceeds normally.

4. Both of the above problems have been posted elsewhere on the forum; no fix so far.

No doubt about it, this is one of the most accomplished releases I've tested.
Two suggestions:

Booting liveCD is too slow. Can one of you clever developers adapt one of the flash loaders that seem so popular?

Opera Turbo would seem to answer the prayers of many gray-o-philes.

And for a real bonus, this one switches OFF correctly.....

How can I see wmv video files?
I try to copy wmvdmod.dll to win32 and to codecs at /usr/lib but only get a bluescreen on the player. Search the forum but didn't found solution.
I'm using xorg... will try xvesa to see if it's a xserver problem...

OK, it works with xvesa. Need to install ATI drivers for my IBM ThinkPad T42!
