Running lupuplus-528-005 full install ext4 partition

no problems to report

Really like the new help features that are now working on many of the apps.

It keeps getting better and better.

Thanks to your hard work, many people around the world have a first class puppy to play with. An occasional trip to the vet (Dr. Playdayz). no food or water, no trips outside for bathroom break, an occasional walk and countless hours of enjoyment for the owner.

Lupu005LIbre, SAMBA 3.6.3 (both 01Micko's and Pemasu's versions work) and AngryIP are sprite and stable.

Thanks. This combination is a Vista/Windows7 replacement. My Apple, Windows PC and games all see the stuff/documents shared from this Puppy.

Great work Playdayz!

Should your step into the future, how about "real" OOTB browser instead of what comes currently. The ability to choose, though a good one, delays the use of the system and search needs.

Thanks, again for all of this great stuff you do for us.

I tried each lucid and i was always deceived with bugs : no Shutdown in 511, 525 quite good, 528 no sound.
But i try this one.
The very best is Slacko. Racy works well.

Bonjour Pelo, Thank you for your comments. It is good that Slacko is working well for you. It is a very good Puppy. It is newer than Lucid and still being actively developed by 01micko.

I have just posted a "quick tweak" maintenance update for LupuPlus Libre--you will notice a "-1" at the end of the name now. 3 very small things were changed: 1) Libre Office does not now check for an upgrade automatically--the reason is that upgrading would use massive amounts of pupsave--if someone does want to upgrade it can be done manually; 2) sylpheed does not check for an update automatically either--I found it distracting especially since the "update" was just the source code--the current Sylpheed is the latest; 3) Homebank is updated to 4.4. There will be a similar quick fix update to Lupu Plus in the next day or so. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=622054#622054

If you downloaded the original, you can change the behavior yourself of Libre Update: Tools -> Options -> Online Update. To change Sylpheed: Configuration -> Common Preferences -> Details -> Update. And here is Homebank 4.4 for anyone who wants it. http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/homebank-4.4.pet

Abiword has a history of incompatibilities with formats


I believe it helps to change the default save format in Abiword to odt (opendocument) which I have done in all 005 versions.

Just an idea.

If LupuLibre has Libre Office, is there a need to also have Abiword in it.

Playdayz,

Noticed Pelo added to his earlier comments. Seems Lupu 528.005 solved his problems.

My PC at work has Windows , Microsoft Office and Wordpad.

I find I use Microsoft office for the heavy duty reports and Wordpad when I want to write a quick note but want some formatting capability.

I think Libre Office and Abiword may be the Linux equivalents of Microsoft Office and Wordpad, although Abiword may be a bit over the top for Wordpad if there is a smaller replacement available.

Used in this way I think some of the difficulties/problems of Abiword disappear.

The more difficult question is whether Gnumeric can be dispensed with. I haven't really used Libre Office Calc enough yet to form an opinion as to whether Gnumeric is now redundant.

As long as you don't allow AbiWord to save anything critical, yes, but it only takes about a second longer to load SWriter.

Yes, Gnumeric is redundant in LupuLibre, but at least it's reliable if you do accidentally use it instead of Calc.

Just a thought to throw out: wasn't it just 2 or 3 weeks ago we were lamenting the passing of the late great Lupu? It looks to me like it will be a viable (and very useable) distro for quite some time, largely due to the efforts of Playdayz. Many thanks to him and the other devs!

i do full install lupuplus 528.005.
at first and second shutdown, it is no problem, but the third, lupuplus can't shutdown. after black screen, lupu back again to desktop, but no sound. when i poweroff again, it still back to desktop and no sound, over and over again. so i force shutdown by press and hold my power button.
lucid is the one of my favorite puppy. can anyone tell me how to fix that?

Ah! Perhaps that's where ditto Saluki got it from?
This is serious, but no idea how to fix it.

One thing that can cause this when it is a full install.
If the partition Lupuplus is installed on, is mounted by clicking on the partition drive icon on the desktop.
If it is not unmounted by right clicking on partition drive icon and choosing unmount.
At shutdown it will do as you indicate.

There is a little tweak to Lupu Libre now lupulibre-528.005-2. Basically it includes the doc-type pet that was extra, along with turning off auto-updating in Libre Office. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70855

Psip32 is now included long with Pburn 3.5.2.

Bingo! Thanks, BP.
Don't usually have to bother. Perhaps there's something in Control Panel for auto-unmounting?

Later: Oh no it isn't! Spuriosity returns; reported on Saluki thread. This is new!

Doggone playdayz, I haven't finished installing the earlier versions.

I ran into a problem which I notice on LupuLibre5.2.8.005. On a machine which uses the nvidia 96... driver recommended by the button on the drivers tab of quickpet, there is a race condition between different processes. To get a good install I clicked "no" when it asked if I wanted to exit X at that time, then did a control-alt-backspace exit to the cli -- after the driver had been installed and the menu updated.

What appears to happen on some machines, but not others, even with the same graphics, is that the exit takes place while the script is still working on the XML for the menu. This produces an error message when I return to the desktop, and sometimes a truncated menu.

I had earlier installed ordinary 5.2.8.005 on the same machine without a problem. It appears that the longer menus, and the speed of the machine, cause this problem to manifest itself on LupuLibre.

I have discovered a problem with JAVA support in latest version of LupuPLUS-Libre.

It is described here. And,is similar with some past efforts.
