Subject description: lupu-525 with a friendlier user interface
 

While checking puppy out i discovered the remaster live-cd tool and i thought i'd share my puppy configuration with others (if they are interested of course).
There's not much to say really, it's a remaster of lupu-525




So, what's different from the default lupu525 other than the wallpaper?

what i installed:
Code:
   tint2 - a highly customizable panel
   gmrun - a run dialog
   thunar - a nicer-looking file manager
   conky - a nice system monitor
   lxappearance - to change the gtk themes and icons
   chromium 10
   sakura - a lightweight terminal which supports copy-pasting
   scrot - a SCReenshOT tool
   nitrogen - wallpaper changer
   file-roller - archive manager
   ntpdate - to sync the time
   transmission
   deb2pet   
   python
   fonts
   new theme
   new icons

what i removed:
Code:
abiword | gcolor2 | gexec | gmeasures | gnumeric | gdmap | gtkam | inkscapelite | jwmthememaker | jwmconfig2 | jwm2 | osmo | mtpaint  | picpuz | pictureviewer | pclock | retrovol | rubix | sylpheed | tile | uget | xemeraldia | xinvaders | xsane | asunder | axel | dillo | fpm2 | gfnrename | gpptp | grub4dos | guvcview | gwhere | homebank | mhwaveedit | midori-cups | mtr | notecase  | didiwiki | pbackup  | pcd  | pdvdrsab | pfind | pmetatagger  | pmirror | pmirrorget | pmusic  | pplog | prename | psip  | ptiming  | pupradio | pure-ftpd  | pwsget | searchmonkey | puppy_podcast_grabber | ssh-gui  | superscan  | xclipboard  | xdelta3 | xfdiff-cut | fbpanel | gtk-chtheme | wallpaper_lupu


a big thank you to, russoodle who offered to host the distribution
to download you will need to input
user=puppy
pass = linux

download reborn puppy with chromium (161.1 MB)
download reborn puppy without chromium (132.7 MB)

(p.s. the links probably won't work forever)

I like the clean and simple ui but why is it bigger than the standard when you deleted so much? Is the added chrom that big?

The iso name is alipup and it's a reborn puppy... Is your name Ali?


I tried shinobar's language sfs but seems like they don't like each other.

Have you ever tried it?

Just curious.

Chromium and Python are big programs

actually puppy with those packages removed has 119.4 mb, and everything without chromium has 138.4 mb

the iso name is alipup because i initially made this remastering for myself only and later on i decided to release it since i haven't seen many people configure their puppy that way
and even tho my name is not ali, that's how the neighbour kid pronounces my name and i take on that nickname
i haven't tried shinobar's language sfs but if it's compatible with lupu 525 it should be compatible with this one as well

new version available Very Happy

Wow! Very Happy

This is awesome! I really like the tint2 setup, with the single large icon. Beautiful, very cutting-edge contemporary look.

I like how you handled an issue i had with thunar vs rox w/ the Pmount keyboard shortcut. Excellent idea!

May I ask, what are you using that has python as a dependency? Did you have any issues installing deb files that use python? Or did you install them through the pythonic tools? I've been having constant pains with python, esp when installed via the lucid debs. If you know how to get this to work well **PLEASE** let me know how you did it.

Also, if i read you right, you said that you were able to build this with just the "Remaster Puppy Live CD" and "Remove Builtin Packages"? There were settings i just couldn't for the life of me figure out how to keep set!
After i would remaster, a bunch of stuff would still be there, or changed to what which was originally on 5.2.5 before i changed it (well, that was with the luci25X stuff before 5.2.5 went final, actially). Did you have this problem? If so, how did you overcome it?

Again, awesome, just an amazingly cool setup. Definitely provides an out-of-the-box experience so substantially different than a stock 5.2.5 i truly hope you keep it available. If you need hosting, i would be happy to provide it free of charge, or there are definitely people on the #irc channel that would be willing to help with that.

the logout script uses python, i'd much rather press start+x than right click and search for the shutdown options, but that's not the main reason i installed it,
the main reason why i installed it is because i use a python script to check for my emails (see pic) Smile

i didn't install any deb files requiring python and i'm not aware of the pythonic tools you're talking about

i'm not sure i understand what your problem is...

well, during the remastering dialog you are prompted several times to modify files if you are interested, the script pauses for modifications until you press ok, during that time you can do any customization you want, if you chose not to customize it, it will have the same configuration files as the current livecd (and what's the point of remastering it then?)

thanks, it would be great if you'd mirror the file, just make sure you mirror the latest one
