With a few patches, CUPS 1.3.10 looks usable in this version.

1. Get Patriot's CUPS 1.3.10 from here.

2. Get ttuuuxxx's compiled foomatic-rip from Puppy 4.2.1

3. Make /tmp all-writable.

4. Get the HPIJS driver package with dynamic PPD's from here.

This is based on very limited testing.

When you click on the drive icon of an already-mounted partition, you get the annoying orange dialog box. If I wanted to unmount the partition, I would right-click on it. The behaviour in 4.1.2 is much more convenient.

Many thanks Smile

menu/internet/uget download manager (manager has the g missing)

I hope the 'original' desktop icon theme remains - it seems the best for clarity and ease of use based on colour and shape

Sub_title: 416 ALSA detection failure
 

Booting the live CD, 416 ALSA wizard (alsaconf) detects neither the PCI sound card nor on-board audio, despite successful boot-time hardware detection (snd_ice17xx and ac97 drivers are being loaded).

On-board audio is normally disabled. I enabled it after PCI card detection failed.

Hi Barry I'm working on the icons Smile
The issue I have is the new image viewer, If you click on an icon it exapnds to a crazy size like 512x512 or something, So I untick the scale box, and then Its the actual size, then I close it and click it again, Once again it doesn't remember my last settings and its expanded again, It should show images at the default regular size, not auto-max-zoom on load. Also whats wrong with Hairry-wills hacked Gpicview with slideshow? Its only 32kb compressed. That works fine.

Successful manual frugal install to USB stick.
Dell Latitude 610 laptop.
Xorg at 1024x768

Finally got wifi connection (Netgear WG111T usb, via ndiswrapper).
As with previous versions, initially could not establish a WPA connection.
But... I tried again, and again, and again....
Eventually got a connection. Don't know how though...

[edit] No connection after reboot - tried several times, but no luck.

Minor issues:
The combination of the default wallpaper and icons. Well, let's say it wouldn't look out of place here.
Those icons work much better with a darker background.

Right, now to try it on my old PII laptop....

Sub_title: PII laptop, xorg
 

Compaq Armada 3500
320MB ram
PII 300mhz
2gb CF card in IDE adapter

Yippee!!
Previous versions would not work with xorg, but now I'm running at 1024x768 without problem.
Wifi connection was established first time of asking (same usb dongle as mentioned in previous post). Did not survive a reboot, but only took a couple of tries to re-establish.

It also picked up my other CF card in a PCMCIA adapter - this does not happen with every pup, so it's a plus for me.

Seems to be running very smoothly, and quite quick for this laptop (I think the CF card is too slow to get a really good performance). Definitely worth continuing with.

    funny thing, I've been running 4.16a live and working on the icons Smile
    The strange thing is that the icons in usr/local/lib/mini-icons folder is 199kb, but if you copy the icons only not system links from that folder to say root/oldicons the size shoots all the way upto 885kb, where did the other 686kb in file size come from? then if you think its a compression sfs thing, well I then converted the 885kb folder to a pet, which should be larger than a sfs and it was 51kb pet in size. I'm about 3/4 done with the 24.24 icons and this is how it compares so far, probably will be a bit smaller in the end.

    old icons 885kb in root
    new icons 836kb in root:)
    but
    old icons in pet 54kb
    new icons in pet 113kb

    and here's the clincher if you copy the 199kb icons from usr/local/lib/mini-icons to root and then you copy the same icons back to usr/local/lib/mini-icons the folder increase to 885kb.
    now lets do some math, the largest icon is 2261b and the smallest is 212b and there are 220 icons. lets just say they all are 2.2kbX220 thats a max ok 484kb. Man thats confusing, you probably best just going off of pet sizes to know the real size.

    Ttuuxxx,
    The squashfs filesystem packs very small files extremely efficiently, much better that .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 tarballs.

    Note also, we don't have to increase all of the 16x16 icons to 24x24, only those likely to be needed in the menu. Some of the others are actually better left as 16x16 as they are mostly used in Window top-left corner of an app. Anyway, it won't do any harm if they all become 24x24, as long as size doesn't balloon.

    Sub_title: "Unsupported scanner" comes to life.
     

    Not more than a week ago I purchased an HP 5500C flatbed scanner at local a thrift shop for US $20. It was a lark really but worth the gamble. It turned out that the scanner was in perfect condition. The hurt came when I discovered the device on SANE's "not supported" list. Sure enough, neither Puppy nor any other Linux distro I tried could find the scanner.

    Enter Puppy 416. Xsane finds the scanner without difficulty and scanning is picture perfect. I can't believe the timing. My $20 just purchased a $250 scanner.

    Thank you Barry! Thank you SANE project!
