BE AWARE!!!!
If you have Puppy installed, you MUST run this with the prefix 'puppy pfix=ram'. Else, the Stardust desktop will not install.


Here is the good old Stardust icon-theme updated for Puppy Stardust (thanks to 01micko)

I will encourage all users to NOT use Puppy Stardust, but instead help tecnosaurus with Puppy 4.4

____________________________________________________________________________

I have uploaded the Stardust files (see bottom of this post). It is NOT meant for general use, but for experiments only. The packages is
- StardustDE which holds the added/updated files to get a Stardust Desktop Environment. It is large, but most of it should replace original Puppy stuff. Note that original icon-themes are not entirely compatible with Stardust. Note! What is not included in this pack?
1. Gtk-theme-switcher2 is required by Stardust to change gtk-theme.
2. Pwidgets.
- Stardust_build_script is the script I use to build the Stardust iso. The only part that is important for Stardust Desktop Environment, is to remove some original icons, rox-files... This is not critical, but you will get some quirkies. This script is not meant for any other person than Ziggy (it is hardcoded for my system), so look at it, and see how Stardust is built..... Don't expect it to build any Stardust iso for you.


____________________________________________________________________________

The following list shows many items that is taken out of the iso. But, it is not as critical as it seems. Most of these are tiny apps, and you have not been aware of many of them. Simply because other apps do the job.

Aqualung has left, and Pmusic is back. Pmusic has evolved in both features and speed, so It is more a matter of longterm strategy. I hope it will be possible to build more around ffmpeg in the future. We could hopefully get rid of lidsnd, libsamplerate and maybe libxine...

Gadmin-Rsync is out as well, since it crashed on first run. I don't think Pbackup fill the backup issue completely. It would be wonderful if there exists a tiny but complete backup suit.

If you see something that you would have changed, added or removed, I will be very glad if you mentioned it. Because of my limited time, it would be best if you deliver the patch.... My knowledge of network/internet tools is close to zero, so these are nearly untouched.




So what's added
- Stardust desktop environment - including pcc (Puppy control center), desktop configuration tools and Pwidgets
- Pwireless2 (replaces Pwireless)
- ATI graphic drivers
- Broadcom wifi drivers
- splix - Samsung, Xerox, Dell printer drivers
- acpid
- default-wizard
- fileedit (set to defaulttextviewer)
- floppy-formater (replaces floppy-format.sh)
- Galculator
- gpicview (replaces viewnior)
- gtkmoz (replaces PuppyBrowser)
- gtk-theme-switcher2 (replaces gtk-chtheme)
- ink
- lameNFSxplorer
- lameSMBxplorer (replaces pnethood)
- Pmusic (replaces aqualung)
- Pscreenshot
- Pupradio (replaces pstreamvid)
- printoxx
- pstartupsound
- startmount
- RetroVol (replaces absvolume and zmixer)
- seahaven
- woo-ff
- xgamma



Some scripts has been upgraded
- cpu-scaling tool
- drive_all
- fixmenus
- icon_switcher
- JwmThemeMaker
- Pburn
- Pfilesearch
- Pfind
- sfsconverter
- theme_switcher
- you2pup
- xorgwizard



And what does the Stardust-generator change
- Install desktop at first startup rather than keep it in the iso to save space
- snap desktop icons - medium grid
- simple Pmount facelift
- Xlock is fixed
- start pCD instead of defaultmediaplayer when click on audio-CD icon
- seamonkey buttons
- defaultaudioplayer is changed from aqualung to pmusic
- defaultaudiomixer is changed from zmixer to retrovol
- Net-setup goes to Pwireless2 for wireless configuration
- Optional darker background color in: rxvt, geany, abiword




And of course, something had to leave
*** Programs ***
- absvolume
- aqualung
- background_reshape
- burniso2cd
- calcoo
- cdp
- cgtkcalc
- didiwiki
- e3
- EmbeddedBookmarks
- floppy-format.sh
- gcolor2 (color chooser)
- gdmap
- gexec

- glightoff
- gtk-chtheme
- gtkdialog markup editor - devx ???
- gtklogfileviewer - Does any script use anymore ???
- gtksourceview
- gview
- icon_switcher_cli
- libmad
- libsnd (mhwaveedit (not updated) and aqualung used libsnd)
- madplay
- mtpaintsnaphot.sh
- netpbm
- Net-setup (old version)
- nicoedit
- partview - uses netpbm which is gone
- pcdripper
- Pdisk - could maybe be in use by some wizard
- picpuz
- pictureviewer
- pmirror/mirdir
- pmwget (PMirrorget)
- pnetnood
- pplog
- pstreamvid
- ptooltips - tool to show tooltips in gtkdialog - not longer in use
- PuppyBrowser
- PuppyPdf - Abiword does exactly the same
- Pwireless
- pwsget
- quisp
- rsync / gadmin-rsync - crashes on first run
- securetelnetshell
- tile
- viewnior
- waveplay - linked to aplay
- xAutoconnect - Pwireless2 should do the job
- xcalc
- xclipboard
- Xconsole
- xfontsel
- ycalc
- zfind
- zmixer

*** Trimming ***
- cdrkit - Pburn has very few dependencies
- jwmconfig2

*** Control panel has ditched some ***
- countrywizard
- XserverWizard
- wizardwizard
- And plenty of menu items

*** Graphics ***
- All wallpapers
- some Gtk-themes
- All Icon-themes
- many mini-icons

I am running Stardust 12 as my main OS now from a USB stick and everything seems fine so far. I haven't noticed any show-stopper bugs. Please keep up the good work! Smile

Question: What does "#No Stardust installing" in the first post mean?

Question: How do I make the fonts I write in Geany black and the background white or at least lighter than black?

Suggestion: Although the desktop themes are very pretty the menu fonts are a bit difficult to read with my old eyes. Could you include some themes with a bit higher contrast?

I'm not sure if this is the right thread and if you have implemented some of these suggestions in 013 but I'll wait downloading it until I know what "#No Stardust installing" means... Smile

Thanks!

Artie

I just came across some chart in one of the puppy web sites cataloging which sfs files would work in which puppy version and that got me thoroughly confused. (Very easily accomplished...) I therefore thought it might be a good idea if you could simply make a little list with links to the major! program sfs and pet files and portable apps that are tested and guaranteed to work in Stardust that a lot of people might want to install, such as Skype and OpenOffice and Opera. Since there are so many versions of programs floating around it would be a great help to newbies and I'll try to help keeping it updated.

Fresh frugal install w/ new save file, replacing 012. Gets to the desktop much faster without Stardust installing.

Already installed Firefox 3.6 and flash 10.....able to watch streaming video with no problems.

Great job so far...... Smile

Stardust up to 012 had a post installation script that installed Stardust ontop of existing jwm/rox configuration. This is now already in the iso you download. The biggest benefit is that Stardust 014 may upgrade from Stardust 013 without pfix=ram. - simply by replacing pup-431.sfs

This will be dealt with in version 014 (or 015).

You should try Stardust 013. Very Happy

Remember that this is nothing else than Puppy 4.3.1. Every app that works in 4.3.1 should work in Stardust.

I am not aiming for a new Puplet. I'm sure Puppy 4.4 and later Puppy 5 will be great distros. Stardust is the playground of some desktop ideas. But I early realized; to get testers, I had to give something back. That's way I don't throw out some alpha-code, but instead try to keep it as stable as Puppy 4.3.1.

Great to hear positive tests....

It is time to look at the Ptray gui once more. It has been reported several times that it is a bit complex. If anyone has some thoughts about how to simplify it, it's time to shout. I want to hear your opinions.

Thank you
Sigmund

If you speak Japanese, that would be 14. Many numbers containing a 4 are bad luck, as phonetically it sounds like "death". This has caused problems with foreign-packaged goods like golf balls. (Digression on golf balls and language: How would a German pronounce the brand name "Titleist"?)

Numbering rooms in a Japanese maternity ward is a particular problem, as 43 sounds like "stillbirth" and 42 like "double death".

On the other hand, 8 is associated with good luck, at least by educated people who read Chinese. There is a story that Toyota was chosen for the company name, (when the family behind it is named Toyoda,) because the phonetic Japanese characters for this, both katakana and hiragana, are made with eight strokes.

With automobiles, and especially with luck, your mileage may vary.
