Rollin' with Aqualung.

I have found that right-clicking an app in the task bar closes it. Is that the intended behavior? Also how do I switch between desktops?

Testing.....testing....now. Looks good so far. Some quick notes. Pupcamera would need gphoto2 and some other stuff to work from menu. Easily fixed though. Delayedrun script still calls 10.X flash player. If you want to use 11.X flash, the script needs some editing for download location. I changed it in Exprimo 5.X.8.

Wm compo looks good and works also. New X works great. Touchpad configuring with flsynclient works.

This looks like new era in small size Puppies world.

Thanks Iguleder !

Testing GuyDog on a fresh frugal install.
- Xorgwizard would not properly probe my onboard nvidia on bootup.
Manually tried the nv driver, which did not work. Managed to get to the graphical desktop using the Vesa driver. The new look is nice.,

Pets from my hard-drive would not install when I left-clicked on them in emelFM2. Same problem in Nextpup. Lucky I knew about the Open With "petget" command and was able to install pets that way.

- I wish to add drive icons back to the desktop but don't know how, can someone out there help me with this?

Guy Dog tries lead the way and show “blind” developers that is it is possible to build a puplet smaller than Puppy 4.x that has at least the same features as Puppy 5.x

I don't think it is that we are blind, but it's more that you are more skilled a coder than the majority of us. Thanks for paving the way.

Overall, I think that this could be the base for many great new puplets ahead. Thanks for everything.

Seems to work well on old and new PCs. Some of the same problems mentioned, though, I also see.

Had one problem with a PPM product that does find library.

Otherwise, this is very interesting packaging you provide for us. Thanks.

It is, but you can change it. The setting is at line 83 in /root/.config/tint2/tint2rc, "mouse_right = close". The available settings are explained at the link below.

Ctrl-Alt-Left Arrow or Right Arrow or scrolling on the desktop are two ways.

I tried the pet, but it didn't work in Guy Dog. Thanks for the suggestion.
Finally got ROX-Filer to work, but don't know how to change the default pinboard.

Fresh manual frugal install on my main Athlon XP linux box.Same problem as was mentioned earlier....Xorgwizard refuses to use the "nv" driver for my Nvidia card so I'm using Vesa at 1280x1024 (highest resolution allowed) instead of my desired 1440x900.
Otherwise,sound was working on initial boot and SNS made quick work of the network.Overall,looks pretty good.
On to more testing. Laughing

Connecting to the internet is still problematic for me lol.

I really think it is the belkin wireless router & or the belkin adapter FSD7050.

Will do some more testing but my initial tests all point to my hardware components Sad

frugal manual install to ext4 pfix-=ram. sns auto-detected my broadcom wifi driver and after inputting particulars including WEP network encryption made connection without issue.

some things to find out like how to install existing pets, as noted in earlier post. seems responsive and quick but how much more so than 64 bit or all 686 os will find out over next days of testing. thanks.
