We tested Quickpet a lot. Without issue. It just downloads the .pets. The install script is the same for PPM or just clicking on a .pet.

Good day again... Saturday should be great.

Still in the top 10. We will start settling back down around 60 .We have been very successful at DW .Macpup has stayed on the top 100 "last 7 days" chart for almost two years straight. Very Happy

I found this today.Another way to set up a usb install.But works from within windose and uses FAT32. Could be cool.

Sub_title: modules hiding from me :-(
 

Those reviews were a good read..

Macpup 525 has had a good run at DW too, but tapers off with the page hits once the editorial has fallen off the bottom of the page.

I'm posting from this puppy now runtt, and really like it, but i'm puzzled as to why some modules are not visible anywhere, regardless of which E theme i use, so that's eliminated as a possible cause....see screenie attached.
This is on a Dell Latitude D620, btw, not the Mac desktop Wink
I can provide specs if you want them.

Hello russoodle

I think i can answer this one for you.

Right click somewhere on the shelf (i used the top edge), and select Contents
Then, in the window that appears, select whatever 'Gadget' you want
and click on the Add Gadget button.

Hope this helps

Sub_title: Macpup 525 full install help follow-up personalize settings & firewall icon
 

Hi,
I really like this new pup.
Just did full install of Macpup 525 and need help.
Everytime I boot I get the "personalize settings" popup box.
It has the settings correct, but it barks two times and popsup.
I went back and booted from ram and saved settings to 32MB save file.
Still pops up each time I boot. Any help to stop it?

Also, I set the firewall like instructed on page 1.
Then I read the note about already having the lupup 525 instant update 001, but not the firewall icon. I would like to turn on and off firewall quickly.
How can I get just the icon and how do I install it?
Or is there a way to do it another way?
Many thanks for any help.

This isn't going to work. You need the save file to be 512 or more or you wont be able to install or do anything. You don't have room to save settings.I suggest you boot up in ram.Delete the first save file and make a new one. I also recommend putting the save file on a usb flash drive or sd card.

You will need to add the systray to the bottom shelf to see the firewall icon. Read the e17 guide in the first post.

@openwell2: hi and welcome to the kennels Smile

Just to clarify something for you here...

A full install doesn't offer you a save-file because you wouldn't need one, so what you have there is a 'frugal' install, which pretty much means a compressed (squashed) and portable sort of install, which doesn't reside on your hdd in the general sense.

With a frugal install, your settings should be saved to the save-file to execute in RAM on reboot, and this is a handy way to run the OS if you have plenty of RAM, because nothing outside of this save-file affects your hdd.

If you have older hardware with only up to about 256mb RAM, you would be better advised to do a full install then, in the normal way, and make a swap file of double your RAM capacity.

As runtt pointed out, to install additional features using a frugal install, you'd need that minimum of 512MB.

Hope this helps you to understand and enjoy your Macpup even more.

Sub_title: macpup 525
 

Thank you for all your advise russoodle and runtt21. I got full install running great! Just added firefox 7 with your detailed instructions runtt21 and works good!
I do feel like a pig though! I seem to have it all. LOL Smile))) I am using an 8 year old Pentium 4 with 2.5 GB ram and I allocated 50 GB of my hdd to macpup 525. Am having great fun experimenting with E17 and JWM and xfce4.6.2 also. If I was brave I would try a frugal install on my Dell desktop. Everything is working very well. I just reboot and switch desktops with the logout menu items. It is real easy. The choices are so many.
Thanks again for a great pup.
