What is the reason you use Rox panel rather than fbpanel or lxpanel? Just size?

I just like it. It integrates well with the Rox Desktop - you can drop icons into it. It has a cool scrolling feature if you add too many icons. For Flwm, I even got the hard drive icons to go into the Panel.

There's no real reason you couldn't use some other panel if you want.

After playing with it some more, noticed something else.

I was trying to install JWM and noticed that it's impossible to start JWM by typing xwin jwm. Apparently the only way to switch window manager is to manually edit /etc/wm or /etc/windowmanager(not sure of the difference) or use the switcher program, which has limited options. Kind of annoying.

Hi, jemimah!

Just tried your Fluppy 0.03 on my desktop: it's fabulous!
I specially like the rox panel / openbox wm combination.

Congratulations, you did it again!

I pulled the hard drive from my old Inspiron 4000 p3 and put it
in my newer laptop in order to install Fluppy from the usb.
It works very well in the old laptop.
Would sure be nice to eventually have a Fluppy "iso" for situations
like this. Smile

Haven't found any Puppy that matches my 4.1.2 install for speed and
ability to run at low temperatures: until now.
Fluppy matches it perfectly and seems to run a little faster.
This really surprised me; as 4.1.2 is under 100mb in size and I
assumed the size of Fluppy would slow it down!

Hi!
Actually, there is an iso for Fluppy. Go to the very first post of this thread and look for the sentence:
> Big_Bass uploaded an ISO for Fluppy 003
The URL for download is right under it.

That's where I got mine from, and it works as any Puppy iso, i.e. great! Very Happy

Subject description: ROX 2.10
 

I've just uploaded the latest version of ROX, which works fully under Fluppy, here:

Enjoy !

The ROX in Fluppy is patched to remove the annoying panel auto-hide feature that doesn't work if your panels have stuff in them and allow the corner buttons to work nicely in Flwm.

I've been planning to upgrade and patch the new version but that probably won't happen until after the Puppeee release.

Hi, jemimah.

You said:

> The ROX in Fluppy is patched to remove the annoying panel auto-hide
> feature that doesn't work if your panels have stuff in them [...]

I certainly didn't mean to undo anything you did to ROX 2.6.1. But if the feature doesn't work... then I did no harm in advancing to ROX 2.10... right?

I'm not sure I understand the full meaning of your comment.

Most sincerely,

I only mean that if you update ROX in Fluppy, things might break in Flwm. Nothing major though.

True.

But what we need is a talking cow Shocked
- the png could even be swapped for a Puppy
Now that is the way to handle hints, tips and help . . .

I am using the ISO of 003 - much appreciated. Thanks Joe. Thanks Jemimah. Smile
