Thanks for the clarification.

Did you see my other post above asking about your Control Panel zip file?

Cheers
Dave


Yes Dave, after read your post I downloaded that zip, it´s OK here (tested in a Windows 2K machine and old XP machine, sorry I´m not at home now to test it with Puppy).

Could you download it again please and try to unpack it?.

Hello clarf,
Thanks for getting back to me.

I've repeated what I did before...with the same result.
I downloaded your zip file again. As 214X didn't seem to be able to unzip it I went to a Windows PC and used Winzip. Got a file called .tabble

Transferred that to my 214XRC install and it seems to be a text file. Clicking on it of course just launches a text reader.

What am I supposed to do wIth this file? Sorry for my ignorance.
Has anyone else managed to unzip it with 214X and knows where to install it?

Hi dave just drop it in /root Smile Its a config file only.
It uses the table packages I've been providing earlier.

Thanks ttuuxxx. Got it working now. Although I still think it would be better in the Setup section of the Menus.

Just one thing shouldn't file-roller or X-archiver be able to unzip this?

Yes and yes they both unzip clarks's config, what's up with your version?

Dave:

I could unzip that "Control Panel file" with Puppy 214X, what could be wrong with yours?.

I also noticed that file-roller doesn´t have any application configured to open the compressed file, where X-archive has many launch applications options... Something really easy to add for next release.

Greetings,
clarf

P.D: Any comment for the items selection or distribtuion in Control Panel?

1. ttuuxxx and clarf:
Just got back and re downloaded clarf's zip file and tried to unzip with file-roller and x-archiver. Now it works. So, don't know if it was a bad download or more likely I was being stupid and forgot it was a hidden file. Anyway now all okay.

2. Clarf:
The new layout is fine and apart from what I've said before about the Menu placement and being able to run by clicking on an icon not label, it's a goer.

3. ttuuxxx:
new subject. I wanted to try (dare I say it) google chrome but it gives out
Quote:
/usr/bin/google-chrome: /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1: version `GCC_4.0.0' not found. (Required by /usr/bin/google-chrome)

/usr/bin/google-chrome: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (Required by /usr/bin/google-chrome)

Any chance getting these that would work with 214X?

4. ttuuxxx
Started to try your gtk-samba but realised I hadn't checked out remote printing in 214X-RC so tried that and found problems. It was all working in 214X16 and I followed the same procedure.
Eventually found that if I used
Code:
smb://192.168.0.3/Printer_name
(which worked before in 214X16) it failed in RC.
But when I tried
Code:
smb://my_network/my_PC/Printer_name
all was okay. Have you changed anything that should cause this change. Weird.

Oh, and not sure what gtk-samba offers so couldn't really give it a test. Google wasn't very helpful when I had a quick look.

Thanks as ever
Dave

Did you mount the latest devx SFS file?, it should have the needed libraries.

ttuuxxx:

Are you going to upload a new devx file for 214X, with the updated GTK1 packages that you released?.

Couldn't find a devx.sfs file for 214X but found a devx.pet on first page of this thread. After 3 downloads I still couldn't get one that agreed with the MD5 given but as all 3 gave the same MD5 I had to assume the quoted MD5 is wrong. ????

Opened this up and found libgcc_s.so.1 and libstdc++.so.6 but these were symlinks so transfered what they were symlinked to to my /usr/lib folder and then the whole thing crashed. Unable to get it to restore so had to delete the save file and start again.

Think its time for bed.

Hi, another bug seems to byte the dust. Smile

I have good news for all Xvesa users (hope you like it sinc). I fixed the exit to Prompt, Reboot and Shutdown problems using Xvesa, many thanks to BarryK for the idea, you can find more info in Barry's Blog:

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=00654

After read Barry´s post you can find that an easy workaround is delete the /tmp/videomode file, but this file is created after a video mode change. I also wanted to developed a complete fix and not just use a workaround. Wink

I didn´t changed Xorgwizard script, I updated xwin and updated the jwm menu template instead. I modified jwm menu because the "Exit to prompt" option executed "jwm -exit" but not the proper wmexit script used in other Puppy versions... also updated xwin in a more logical way.

So I attach a pet file with the updated files, after the pet is installed the fixmenu script is automatically executed and the jwm menu is updated, making the fix ready to be used.

Please test it and feedback, thank you.

Greetings,
clarf

P.D: This fix was made to be used for 214X, because the original menu template and xwin script come from 214X. But the updated code could be used in any other Puppy with Xvesa problems, just search for clarf text to see the changes.

Description  Fix for Xvesa exit, reboot and shutdown problems. Install it in 214X only.

I finally got around to installing the new control panel.........looks nice and so far works great. Smile

Otherwise, no new problems have appeared, pretty solid release.

I introduced the jwm -exit option because its the official JWM shutdown and users were having issues with the puppy default one, has there been any shutdown issues, not reboot etc, just shutdown since I changed it?
works fine for me.

Also I didn't touch samba at all. Hmmm SO it should be the same, just needs that one system link. Smile
