Subject description: e17 Macpup
 

Prit And I are proud to announce the release of Macpup 520,our newest
e17 Macpup.

MP520 is based on Puppy Linux 5.2 ,"Lucid Puppy", An official woof
build of puppy Linux that is binary-compatible with Ubuntu Lucid Lynx
packages.MP520 contains all the apps from Lucid puppy with the addition of
Firefox 4 rc 1. Extra apps like Opera or Gimp are available for easy
download from the Quickpet App on the ibar or the Puppy Package Manager.
MP520 also includes the Enlightenment E17 window manager. The EFL libraries
version 1.0.0 and E17 version 55225 where compiled and installed
from source.

All included E17 themes are By Verdegal37 and where customized for
Macpup by CatDude and Runtt21.

Thank's to everyone that has help or supported the Macpup project:
Ttuuxxx, CatDude, Puppyluvr, Mu, Sneekylinux, Rasterman and all Of the
E17 crew, ZaZoOo, WhoDo, Omskates, Cgt_1991. Joel, Russoodle,
GrumpyWolfe, Rokytnji , 01miko & Maxpro4u.

Extra Thanks to Agust(Verdegal37), The best E17 Themer on the planet.
And Louis King Jr. for the background in the grub bootloader.

Special Thanks to BarryK the creator of puppylinux. And PlayDaze the
developer of Lucid puppy.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR MACPUP 520. If Quickpet recommends your computer needs the Xorg-High-1.1-lucid.pet. DO NOT INSTALL IT FROM QUICKPET OR THE PUPPY PACKAGE MANAGER. It will cause the system to freeze up. We Have a fixed version , Xorg_High-1.1-macpup.pet & the ATI_fglrx-10.10-macpup.pet in the macpup520 folder on my page at:

http://macpup.org/runtt21/

The .iso is 174 mb.

http://macpup.org/macpup520.php

The default theme:



The three extra themes:







Important note about themes, All of the mp511 themes will work in mp520. I have updated the default themes from mp511 for use in mp520. They are in the MP520-themes.pet's in the macpup520 folder on my macpup page.

This version of Macpup will boot to desktop in almost all cases and from that screen you can make adjustments if they are needed or wanted.The desktop and clock should be correct. If it does not boot to a graphical screen, it might boot to a “prompt.” If that happens please enter ‘xorgwizard’ which will allow you to configure Macpup. If it does not boot to a prompt but a black screen, then you should reboot the CD and press f1 and enter ‘puppy pfix=nox’, in the space that asks for any boot options. Then at the prompt enter ‘xorgwizard’.

If you connect to the internet by Ethernet As soon as the desktop comes up you will be online please click on the top hat on the ibar and run the firewall wizard.

To keep your CPU cool and your fan quiet use the CPU Frequency Scaling
Tool . Menu-applications-system-CPU frequency Scaling Tool.

The first time you run Macpup, The system will be running totally in RAM!
Click on Htop on the ibar to check working space left in RAM*. If less
than 30MB, do not run big apps like Firefox -- instead, shutdown Macpup and you will be asked to create a save file, that will give you more space.You can put the save file almost anywhere,Hard drive,USB Flash drive,Sd card.Etc...
I recommend 256 MB total system ram for Macpup.You can also check ram by adding the systray module to the Ibar. Click on the Top Hat on the Ibar to adjust mostsystem settings. Access the settings panel to make adjustments to e17.
Menu-settings-settings panel or the settings icon on the right end of the Ibar.

Video demo By Sneekylinux:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCAjZHUKFUw

This macpup is intended to be update-able and the first update is ready. It fixes a issue with the settings panel and the order of applications on the ibar or favs menu. You don't have to use this but it's there if you want.

First download the macpup520-update-01.pet from the macpup520 folder on my macpup page. Then use the shutdown menu to switch into jwm. After switching open rox and find the update.pet and install it. Then use the shutdown menu to switch back to e17.

I will have a bigger update for e17 soon . But it is also optional .I will build these updates so that you only need the latest one. You dont have to install 01 to be able to install 02 or 03. And if you miss one don't worry about it. I will only keep the most recent one in the 520 folder.

Like the last few macpup's this is a rebuild of the main.sfs not a remaster. You may run into this white box,If you do just press f1 and keep going.



This macpup has the extra drivers from 511 that part of the lupu 520 update preinstalled. Quickpet is up to date.

Change log : Lupu 520 to macpup 520

Openbox, all openbox themes and config files,Fbpanel and config files and the dillo browser have been removed. All of the puppy backgrounds and extra icons sets have also been removed.

Firefox is directly from the mozilla site.

Change log : macpup 511 to macpup 520

Mp 511 has two file managers ,Rox and EFM. EFM has come along way and is improving but is not that puppy friendly so it has been removed from mp520. Mp511 also has two exit menus. The e17 exit menus doesn't work with puppy linux that well and has also been removed from Mp520.

More info later Today.....

Thank you Terry . Very Happy

Thanks guys , Glad to see you're still on board with us. Very Happy

We have decided to stop using the "Foxy" and "Opera" names and just stick with versions number . But This would have been Foxy 4.0 ,Kind of cool it has firefox 4. Laughing To get that classic macpup foxy look and feel Install the MP511-megan-3 .pet



Also try the new MP520-Black-4.pet



Each of these themes has their own bootsplash. To select it go to menu-setting-settings panel. Then under the Look tab select startup then under personal select the theme and then apply.

If you have a desktop or just want to use puppy'd tray apps you can remove the battery or temp gadget but right clicking on the gadget then select gadget and then remove. You can go a step farther and unload the gadget. Remove it from the shelf first. Then meun-settings-modules. Select them under the system tab and then unload.

To use puppy's stuff right click anywhere on the bottom shelf then select bottom shelf and then contents. In the next window select systray then add gadget.

Umm, still dling mp520 - but the old-fashioned way is to Ctrl+Alt+backspace to go out of X (E17's desktop) and follow the prompted instruction after typing "reboot" or "poweroff" if it's your initial run (create a save file and save to it, save to cd-multisession or bypass either if you don't want to save session and go through setup again)

Some good tutorial articles by runtt21 that should still be somewhat viable in the mp511 thread.

hth & welcome to e17 macpup-style, fxjudy Smile

Congratulations. This puppy is MAGNIFICENT! My technician, a long time Linux user was blown away by the look and SPEED.

I've installed all my stuff - WINE and Miditzer (a Virtual Theatre Organ) along with JACK, QJackctl, Qsynth, Jconvolver, JcGui and xdotool. All work perfectly. Very Happy

Now to see if I can learn how to get them into the iso without losing all the goodies like the bootscreen menu and the video detection and setup.

Thanks
Graham

Russ you're the best !!!! Thanks!!

fxjudy do a md5sum check on your download. It sounds like you need to add acpi=force to your boot code.

Brown Mouse I removed that script But I forgot to remove the menu entry.
Plogout handles the switch for us ,We has used that forever.

I also added a new resize pupsave script based on Big Bass's :
