Wary 5.2 frugal

pupX set properties of X > Screensaver

Usually I disable the screen saver,
but just now enabled it for a short delay,
and 'blank the screen'.

It did not happen !
I tried it with no apps running.

Is it broken?

Sub_title: Mouse droppings...those pointy ones must hurt
 

As don570 said - a row of triangle like shapes appear over the ruler as the mouse is moved (following the pointer), They go if the window is resized or loses focus, but return once the mouse moves again. Some artifacts down the left hand side too, though less noticeable. Definitely following the mouse movements though.

Wary 5.2 has updated Xorg in eMachines D443 laptop (AMD Fusion E-350 Radeon HD 6310) and Puppy is now running happily with direct rendering in 1366x768 display.

Thanks, Barry.

My attempt to update the multisession 5.2 beta 2 Blu-Ray to 5.2 final fell flat, pardon the alliteration. I told Burniso2cd to burn the 5.2 final iso to the multisession BD-RE disk without blanking the disk first. After Burniso2cd was done, I shut down, saving to the newly burned BD-RE disk. This has always worked with rewritable multisession DVDs. But when I rebooted, somehow it loaded the .sfs file from an earlier Puppy, one I don't remember burning onto this BD-RE. Naturally that combination didn't work very well, though it did work well enough for me to use Pburn and Burniso2cd. So I wound up blanking the BD-RE with Pburn and reburning the 5.2 final iso again with Burniso2cd. This time it worked, except of course all my settings from configuring the 5.2 beta 2 were lost.

My only complaint so far is with SeaMonkey. Web pages load slowly and scroll very jerkily. Also the CPU load indicator (on the right end of the system tray) maxes out sometimes when I have many tabs open. Then things really slow down. This hasn't happened in most other Puppys I've tried. I haven't the slightest idea what to try that might fix this.

Old bug is back. Insert key kills Seamonkey while writing a message.

Had it ever gone away? Mad Mad

My solution is to reassign the Insert key. See http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=69175

The best workaround would be to set it so that the Insert key does nothing except in combination, e.g., Ctrl-Insert, or Shift-Insert but the best I could manage was to set it to become a second Backspace key.

I noticed the same thing here on this box with a semi-old Nvidia card.Did the Xorg mega video upgrade and things are markedly better.YMMV though but it seemed to help here.

Thanks. It's also in the Puppy Package Manager, under Setup (I think.) Smile
I installed it, hit Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, ran xorgwizard-automatic and SeaMonkey does seem to be running more smoothly now. Smile

For what it's worth, after installing the newer Xorg, glxgears is reporting slightly higher numbers and the gear rotation appears much smoother.

My 1.6Ghz Pent.M laptop runs 220 FPS with Wary 5.2 and
750 FPS with Wary 5.1.3.4.-uni.

The uni version uses about 15% less cpu; though it
doesn't seem to make much difference with video stream
quality.

It does run about 5 degees cooler.
