mikesir,

Nice icon. I prefer Rox-Filer, so I installed the one from the lucid repo.
But typing rox in the terminal still activates Emelfm2. To get rox-fiiler working, you need to remove or rename /usr/bin/rox. That's the one that links to emelfm2.

There is a command for the real Rox-Filer in /usr/local/bin/rox. Not sure if it is added after you install Rox-Filer, or if it was there already.

I'm already beyond the planning phase of 5.0.1 Laughing

I want this to be a bug-fix release.

Features so far:
- Network manager fix (upstream, by Barry)
- Findwild instead of Searchmonkey
- pacer106's wallpaper (well, pacer106)
- Something I'm investigating at the moment: default MIME-type handlers for emelFM2

EDIT: wow, it's amazing how ugly it is. All emelFM2's configuration is stored in a C file and gets printed with lots of unneeded calls to functions. I'm trying to create a huge patch for this file (well, that's the only way to do this) with sane defaults.

Just observations. Not deep criticisms.

Frugal install went well. Still a 'raw' system, that's to say no autodetect of locale etc.
This goes along with most Puppys nowadays. I'm still surprised any Puppy hasn't turned to a dog yet, they still don't seem to have grown up like other distros.

Not really sure where you're going with this, I know it's early days but it's not really intuitive or easy to use. More of a 'seasoned' user/geek than a nooby type of system.

For a new user the idea of pmount drives first, emelfm next, then /mnt to get to drives content and then find out how to install a pet is a bit longwinded. Same goes for auto detection of network and connection.

Unless I'm missing something. Confused

Guess most users automatically load, then immediately customise, so a wallpaper changer not in the default is perhaps a bit remiss.

EDIT: Sorry, I suspect my comments don't really apply after having re-read your mission statement.

PostPosted: Sun 16 Oct 2011, 10:17    Post subject: Rox-filer & pmount & guydog3  

Thanks Tman for the info re Rox-filer.

tazmod - I was please to discover that clicking pmount, then clicking a drive/partition not only mounts the partition but opens it in a window. Not quite as elegant as clicking the drive icon on the desktop with rox-filer set to provide desktop drive icons: 2 clicks rather than one. But not particularly awkward. And for those who really want a "clean desktop" it has an advantage once pmount is added to wbar. As I haven't used wbar in a while, and currently not on my Thinkpad, I don't recall if wbar is set to auto-hide/pop-up over other applications so that it displays over opened applications. If not, some way to reach it without having to minimize windows would be required. ? Gadget on the Taskbar ?

pacer106 - just wanted to tell you that I appreciate your efforts. Guydog3 is stunning.

Thanks

MikesLr

Hi mikeslr,
I think there is a bug with the latest version of wbar that stops it appearing above other applications.

I have seen this too.

But, to solve the issues of system start and system variable settings, maybe @Iguleder is planning along with Barry in using Shinobar's FirstRUN (Personalize Settings). Others, also, have used this to system setup after reaching X desktop. It has multiple merit is addition to the one you mention.

Just a guess at what's gong on behind the scenes as improvements and adjustments are made.

2nd
Sorry for an earlier report . woof-woof works.

3rd
Desktop backgrounds I see here on this thread...."Beautifully Stunning!" (Wow, this is another example of the diverse talents we have across the forum and the marvelous contributions made")

This distro is another outstanding contribution.

PostPosted: Sun 16 Oct 2011, 12:51    Post subject: NV Driver for Guy Dog  

Hi Iguleder,
this new puppy ( with openbox,debian, tiny and fast) is what I always wanted.
I have though a problem with getting Xorg to work with my NVidia 7300 LE graphics card. Even if I select the NV driver manually I can see that Guy Dog wants to use fbdev instead. So everything ends at the autologin hash.
Do You or anyone else have an idea how to solve this?

Thanks in advance

Payoon

I did some revamping of the invisible dog & I think it looks a bit better myself.
