Subject description: E17 Macpup
 

Post for Macpup 528 start at 192 in this thread. Thanks !!



Prit And I are proud to announce the release of Macpup 525,our newest
e17 Macpup.


MP525 is based on Puppy Linux 5.2.5 ,"Lucid Puppy", An official woof
build of puppy Linux that is binary-compatible with Ubuntu Lucid Lynx
packages.MP525 contains all the apps from Lucid puppy with the addition of
Firefox 4. Extra apps like Opera or Gimp are available for easy
download from the Quickpet App on the ibar or the Puppy Package Manager.
MP525 also includes the Enlightenment E17 window manager. The EFL libraries
version 1.0.999 and E17 version 59456 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,Maxpro4u, Rokytnji & 01miko.

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

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

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 most
system 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.

Updates for Macpup 525 can be found at http://macpup.org/runtt21/ in the macpup 525 folder,
as well as extra modules and more themes. Please note that macpup is for PC's and
not intended for use on a real "Mac".


The .iso is 155 MB

http://macpup.org/macpup525.php

the default theme:



Important note about themes, All of the mp511 & mp520 themes will work in
mp525.

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.

Like macpup520 this macpup is update-able. Update .pets will be posted on my
macpup page. We will also be updating the .iso at the same time.

Macpup 525 thread on our forum:

http://hardkap.net/forums/topic/macpup-525

As before this a rebuild of the main.sfs not a remaster.
This macpup has the Instant Update 001 for Lucid Puppy 5.2.5 preinstalled
except for the firewall tray icon change. Quickpet is up to date.

Change log : Lupu 525 to macpup 525

On the puppy side: 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.The old puppy wm switcher app has been removed.

Firefox is directly from the mozilla site.

On the e17 side: EFM,the e17 exit menu and the composite module
have been removed cause they don't work with puppy linux that well.

You may run into this little white box.
If you do just press f1 and keep going....



In the macpup 525 folder on my macpup page:

The Macpup525-extramods-01.pet has lots of extra modules for e17 like forecast,flame,rain,snow.....

The macpup525-svn-full_DEV-02.pet is needed for compiling extra e17 stuff if want to do any of that.

This macpup uses the lupu_devx_525.sfs for compiling.
It is also needed for edje_cc to work if you want to customize themes.
Or you can install the mp520-edjesupport.pet.

The only issue we have run into so far is the menu icon bug for e17 is still happening for some types of menu icons.
The only app I have found that does this is gimp. When you install gimp the first time you run through the apps menus it will through a white box.
Just f1 and everything will be ok. The menus will work fine after that.

Installed MACpup525. Downloaded the Angelic theme from the 520 thread. Installed the pet. But how do I select the theme ? It does not show in the themes list (under settings/themes) rightmost icon in the banner bottom screen.

The Angelic theme wouldn't install for me either (running live pfix=ram) but as a test I installed the Black theme pet from the 520 folder with no problem. appears that it may just be a problem with that one pet.

I downloaded mp525 about an hour ago and am posting this message with it. Everything seems to be running okay on this P4 3.0GHz desktop. Just one question: Can I ask why you opted to include Firefox 4.0.1 instead of Firefox 7 beta? Was it the smaller size, or was there some problem that you found with FF7? Thanks again for another great-looking puplet.! Wink

The thing about ff7 is ,it isn't even in alpha yet.It's that cutting edge. I intend to use it later in a different development release.I dont care if its alpha or not. I have noticed that ff7 doesn't update pages like ff4 does. It will load the page on some sites like our forum but you need to refresh the page to get the newest version.

Subject description: First worked Great
 

The first boot worked fine. It was used to play a couple of games. surf the WWW and watch internet TV. MacPup 525 showed it could walk the walk of a new updated release of PUPPY.
Many thanks to all who helped bring this to us.
