[To resize personal save file in KDE4 with Kickoff Menu style, just type resize in search bar and it will show the resize program.

Ext3 is the best choice as it is the safest version for a save file.


interesting that my kboard is now working properly.

Also after a long look I happened to randomly find that teh menu had more items than it was showing in teh screen. there was no indication like with arows to say there is more.. now i know its great.

now why lighthouse would fill up a 512 save file in 1 hr of setting up is beyond me. as i was trying to use sfs files. i only installed 2 .pets as no sfs for them Rolling Eyes.

with the sfs files i think they probably not downloaded properly or have become corrupted as you have said.

KDE 4 is awesome..... I can only imagine how hard it was to get this desktop working as well as it does, It certainly is some fine work.... I did notice a small bug I don't know if it has been reported but when I set the desktop settings to "seperate activity for each desktop" and change the wallpapers of the seperate desktop activities and reboot KDE it only loads the one wallpaper on one of the desktop activities and leaves the others a default blue untill I open the desktop activity settings for the blank desktop and close it again.... Funny huh? Oh well no biggie!

Keep up the excellent work!

PostPosted: Sat 28 Aug 2010, 11:54    Post subject: Compiz fusion setup.  

I have no idea when it comes to things Compiz

i cant find any information on how to setup compiz-fusion in lighthouse puppy, or any puppy. if you could point me to a good tutorial or something. i have found with lighthouse is it has no faq or many tutorials that i can find..

my computer specs
Acer Aspire 5520
AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology. TL-60 2.00GHz
Hard Drive 320GB (replaced 160GB hard drive last year)
Memory 4GB installed (will show up as 3GB in Windows, linux, or mac 32bit versions)
Nvidia GeForce 7000M graphics card

i installed the latest
lighthouse 5.00 mariner D os (i boot cd, & use a 4gig ext3 save file on ext3 partition)
5-Mariner-5D_495.sfs
CompizFusion-0.7.9-1g.sfs

i also installed the NVIDIA-173.14.25-k2.6.33.2.pet it works fine.
i run with the default desktop manager / window manager whatever the default is. . .

all i find is menu.system>system status and config>compiz fusion icon. that brings up a icon on panel with settings. i set what i like but alt+tab still works normal window pop-up.

i need to know what to do to get things running.

I made a pet package of Mhwaveedit 1.4.20

using Lighthouse 4.43.

Code:
./configure  --without-oss --with-default-mixerapp=alsamixer --without-portaudio --without-sdl --without-alsalib --without-oss --without-jack --without-check-casts


I've been using the past couple of days and it seems fine.

See http://www.lhpup.org/c-f.htm, which is likely the same page C-F SFS was downloaded from. It sounds like you're in JWM or possibly IceWM, where C-F won't work. Try LXDE, KDE or Xfce from the Menu | Change Window Manager or Logout Panel.

Running with the extra add-ons can easily fill up a pupsave, especially with KDE4, proprietary display drivers and multiple web browsers. Click on the freespace/freememapplet icon in the system tray and choose Map of Storage Used to see what files are taking up the most space. Logging out and right back in will cleanup some temporary files. This is done by the 'pup-dip' script in /etc/rc.d/ and its activity is logged in /tmp/root/pup-dip.log. I routinely save or copy and symlink large files/directories out to a subdirectory of /mnt/home or another partitition to keep the pupsave fairly small, and so that the files are accessible from other installs.
Hope that helps,
TazOC

Good photos Jim, some I'd not seen before. I have a file of Lighthouse pics and I'll be adding some of these.

TazOC,
A small bug. I use a wireless connection. I'm running LXDE - the Network connection indicator in the system tray is different from the one in Xfce. The one in xfce recognizes which connection is active and shows me wlan0. In LXDE I have to change it each time to wlan0. The default is eth0 and if I change it to wlan0 the change is not remembered on the next boot.

PostPosted: Fri 03 Sep 2010, 16:13    Post subject: Lighthouse Xscreensaver
Subject description: problem with Xscreensaver Display Power Management
 

This isn't really a bug, more of a quirk.
Under Desktop > Desktop Settings > Xscreensaver Preferences
I get the Error: Couldn't write /home/spot/.xscreensaver
I have Only One Screen Saver set and it works correctly.
I am never user spot, always root.

However, one of my smarter users left his laptop running, it went into screensaver and then into Off.
Except it wasn't really off.
The screen was blank and when he moved the mouse, he got an inactive desktop screen (this was on an Acer laptop, I was able to duplicate on a Dell).
So he power button offed the machine.
Oops, my mistake for never telling him about Ctrl-Alt-Backspace.
The correct way out of the condition is Ctrl-Alt-Backspace and then xwin.

So it might be better to set the default Display Power Management on the Advanced tab to unchecked to avoid this condition for laptops.
I was able to edit /home/spot/.xscreensaver (what an odd location!)
and set dpmsEnabled to False
but not via the GUI.

Hi Barburo,
Yes, I think I'll replace that lxpanel network plug-in with the standard network_tray launched from /usr/bin/blinky-refresh (in the script /usr/sbin/lxpanel_menu_refresh) for the next release. Network_tray has several features that the lxpanel plug-in misses, including auto-detect of the current active connection.

You can get the Xscreensaver preferences working again by installing this pet, disregarding the 5.00C update1 advice. That fix was supposed to be in Voyager 5D, but isn't, and will be in the next release. Xscreensaver will not run as root, so I set it up to run as user spot instead--that's why the configuration file is in /home/spot. I will also change the default dpmsEnabled to False.
Thanks,
TazOC

Yep, that worked, thanks.
Now I am going to go through and read all of the messages in this thread.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=448462#448462

i am wondering if his app is included in lighthouse that is all. can the devs check it out.

it is a sfs mounting ap that will mount sfs files as default appictions.

it links the sfs to the file system rather than mounting it. you dont have to manually add it to the boot loader which is better

Hi and thanks for the links and suggestions. e17 (Enlightenment) has its own compositing system and a very good one, so I don't think C-F would be compatible or desirable as e17's effects alone are stunning. When I tried elive full distro a while back I found it difficult to configure, and downloads were not free. I have not had a chance to try e17 with Puppy or Lighthouse though.

I'm reading the thread on SFS-TCZ_Linker-1.5 and will test it in the future. As I have not tried it with LHP I don't recommend it at this point. I am very busy at the moment with the next release of LHP5.00 F. Basically SFS-TCZ_Linker mounts SFS files, and symlinks their contents into the pupsave. This means it is not a full layering system as such.

With Lighthouse the order (or priority) that SFS files are layered is critical and this is controlled in part by the naming scheme--alphabetical order with numerals first. The other part is that files in the pupsave and main file always have priority over those in SFS layers below. SFS-TCZ_Linker may be a good idea if you absolutely must run liveCD only (no rebooting, no session saving.) But running a standard frugal with pupsave, the Linker will add symlinks to the pupsave layer only--and later remove them, even if similarly named files or links were later added via PPM, Gslapt or other means. This is likely to adversely affect reliability and stability. With a full install any files removed would be gone forever, making it even riskier.

So at least for now, if you are saving your session at shutdown I still recommend a frugal install and BootManager for adding SFS files.

Bibletime-2.7.2b.sfs and Opera-10.61-6430.sfs are available for testing.

The previous BibleTime SFS was missing libsqlite and this Opera is the latest version, with touchtheSky desktop weather widget. touchtheSky works best in Xfce or KDE but not so well in JWM. It needs Opera 10.50+, yet runs even with the browser closed.
