Ummm ... what file chooser? The GTK one?


Yes. this is how it loads (from Abi, but all apps are the same).



I posted the fix on the other thread http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=425522#425522, for updated Rox, but to solve the filechooser bug you need to use this plus gtk+-2.16.6-i486.pet, which I cant upload due to its size.

The problem was that using these two .pets caused the focus bug in Rox filer. that is now fixed with Barrys latest one, which I think you have already installed.

I think I'll leave that for 003, if there is a 003 Smile

I'm currently generating the final 002 ISO, it comes with the new gnumeric you asked for. Because the Abiword of 4.3.1 is so old it doesn't work with the new goffice, so I used another great package from technosaurus Very Happy

So far in development builds I've noticed automatic wired network connection and pman ... it feels way more solid than 4.3.1, at least for me Smile

Opera works great, blends pretty well, except one tiny problem with the desktop help icon. I'll figure this out. It works very well with Flash and feels very fast, but there's one problem - Opera's effects are software-rendered, so if you don't use Xorg with the GPU's drivers it starts slowly, or maybe it's just my crappy CPU. On xvesa it runs well, so I use Xvesa to get drivers in my first session, then switch to xorg Wink

I can play a local FLV video, other formats should work too. I have no idea why, my music sounds better, maybe it's psychological. Many things are upgraded, as the slightly bigger size implies Wink

Still has filechooser bug (am on it) and Opera is doing some weird stuff (still testing).
Otherwise looks and feel gorgeous. What Puppy should have been (IMHO)
Iguleder, would you consider putting the desktop default icons on an autohide launchbar at the top of the screen, or would that be too non Puppy? I have a .pet to do that because someone asked for it a while back...........

In fact, I downloaded your PET, I wanted to examine it for 005. I think it's very-non-Puppy, but it's still nice. I think I can add it to the first-run wizard.

I'm doing some experiments with GTK and JWM. So far, I fixed the tiny fonts problem of Opera, just use this as your /root/.gtkrc-2.0:

Code:

# -- THEME AUTO-WRITTEN DO NOT EDIT
include "/usr/share/themes/Polished-Blue/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"

style "user-font" {
   font_name = "DejaVu Sans 12"
}

widget_class "*" style "user-font"

gtk-font-name="DejaVu Sans 12"

include "/root/.gtkrc.mine"

# -- THEME AUTO-WRITTEN DO NOT EDIT


I also put a darker wallpapers, better for the eyes. At the moment I'm trying to make MIME-type handling better.

EDIT: a utility tray sounds like a great idea. It's JWM, so theoretically, it doesn't fall under the category of bling, JWM is already running. I think I'll try to make some tray with useful stuff that don't appear on the desktop, like pfind and pmusic.

If you go to setup>mouse/keyboard wizard, the pop-up window contains an entry 'configure your touchpad' This button is 'dead' because it should load flsynclient, which is not installed. I will try to find it and install it to see if it works. It is very small and works pretty well.

The two .pets from further up this page (http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=431915&sid=163d9f4f0d02f076dfba00bb44f200ef#431915) fixes filechooser. No downside, no Rox focus bug.

Good morning Iguleder
For developing reasons: which DEVX-file would you recommend to use ? The one from from the Puppy4ever ?

f98ac0718bb914e8eb99f125d14c277a devx_432.sfs

Have a nice day.
Christian

Basically I don't recommend to use KLP for compiling, because it has new ffmpeg and all that, but it's built directly from a 4.3.1 ISO, so you should use the 4.3.1 devx.

Unable to add a printer. CUPS loads via the browser, the ppd files are dynamically created, and then deleted again before I can get to specify one. I had this myself when I tried to build 4.3.1 with Opera only, and never solved it.
