I am using squeeze-5.X.3.1.10.2-SCSI.iso

Ppoweroff doesn't work on my IBM thinkcenter tower with intel graphics.
Is it supposed to work?

Fortunately pupshutdown works so I can shut off my machine.

/etc/rc.d/sysinit misbehaves. I wonder does the PLANG file removal from initrd.gz has side-effects....just brainstorming.

Anyway...I inserted to the rc.sysinit file...to the line 761...this row: ln -snf /dev/psaux /dev/mouse

and it looks now like this:
Quote:
echo -n ' input' >/dev/console #100131
if [ ! -f /etc/mousedevice ];then
echo -n "input/mice" > /etc/mousedevice
ln -snf input/mice /dev/mouse
else
[ "`cat /etc/mousedevice`" = "psaux" ] && echo -n "input/mice" > /etc/mousedevice
fi
ln -snf /dev/psaux /dev/mouse

I admit...I dont understand much of the rc.sysinit...but this hack worked for me...until the real reason has been found.
Anyway...I am gonna download latest woof2 commit and create next build with the improved 3builddistro. It should now accept UTF-8 and my mistakenly adding it should be fixed now.

It is Rox-Filer bug. I dont have that bug anymore when I updated to the latest Barry Kaulers Rox-Filer. But it seems it still cause problems with certain hardware. I dont know any other fix than testing different /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/ROX-Filer binaries. I suppose you could copy that binary from Puppy where it works ok.

Don570. Yep...the problem is the missing row in wmpoweroff: killall enlightenment. During all these Pupsaveconfig - other script updates I havent remembered to check that killall enlightenment still is found in all concerning scripts.
PupShutdown has it inbuild but Ppoweroff relies straigth to wmpoweroff - wmreboot and wmexit scripts. The problem is already fixed in my next build.
I posted about my finding some time ago.

Here is a pet to fix those scripts and it also has the latest PupShutdown and powerbutton updates by Shinobar and Radky.

Could you upgrade to quick launch 2.8 because it
now has the time in the window?
This might be useful for people with 800x600 screens.

_____________________________________________________

Also some suggestions...

1)Put less icons in bottom panel so that
the time (digital) can be displayed. Here's what it would look like



2) Put the Rox desktop icon in the upper left of the screen
to be consistent with Barry Kauler

3) Rox should open the /root folder when the desktop icon
is clicked, I think this can be done by changing the
desktop file



or else change the description of the desktop icon

when I use the enlightenment WM

Don570. Thank you of your suggestions. They are all useful. I will implement them.
I will check your suggestion to Shinobar.

If I remember right, the problem only occurs in ROX-Filer if you have thumnails enabled. You can try using the binary from Lucid; that worked for me. Or you can install a second file manager...Thunar browses the /proc without issues.

Subject description: bluetooth-0.5.pet used for bi-directional data exchange
 

Hi Pemasu,
pemasu wrote:
I have removed the overwriting - preinstalled bluetooth files from bluetooth-0.5.pet. Jakfish or someone with bluetooth connection testing possibility could test the reloaded bluetooth-0.5.pet. It is now of course slimmer.


This bluetooth-0.5.pet works OOTB ! Got the tray applet once installed Smile
The device here (ie mobile phone) is recognized upon «Setup New Device» use
Here have only added the following to allow bi-directional data exchanges between the phone and PC:
1. gnome-user-share_2.30.0-0ubuntu2_i386.deb
all needed dependencies ans scripts seem to be present in this Exprimo flavour.
http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/gnome-user-share/gnome-user-share_2.30.0-0ubuntu2_i386.deb
2 edit /root/.xinitrc the code shown hereunder in line 171 to start dbus-uuidgen (in any case before the line #exec $CURRENTUM)
Code:
...
168 # rox -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin
169 #fi
170
171 dbus-uuidgen --ensure &   # <------TO BE ADDED
172
173 #exec $CURRENTWM
174 #v2.11 GuestToo suggested this improvement
...


NEED TO PLUG IN (yes Embarassed ....that's trivial, but...!) the BT adapter and REBOOT TO START BT. And to set the phone and PC as «visible» to get both each other recognized.
The «device-up» and «device-down» mounting/unmounting line commands here are working (could not use them till now, on other existing bluetooths pets or other archives).

Works nice ! Again many thanks for it ! Very Happy

Further tested: other Puppies (Slacko, Lupu-528): the bi-directionnal exchange woks nice, and requires more dependencies than here on Exprimo ... as also more grey hair and many coffee cups drinking.
Here in Exprimo only one extra gnome-share archive is needed.

ere was trying to upload lot of pictures from a Samsung GT-E2370 phone to my PC using a 7.99 euros « König Electronic CMP-Bluekey27 Bluetooth 2.0 USB Adapter » since about 2 months ! (The vendor then told me «the USB link chord was no longer available - just buy this BT adapter that moreover is cheaper ! No problem if you run Linux !».Here could not get the on-business-card-format-CD-delivered-MSWindows driver + application working on WinXP - also reported on user blogs ...! )

Hope this could help ! Have fun !
Charlie

I recently tried the BootFlash install to USB app, which removed the formatting and then failed. I tried it a few times after restoring formatting, and it was consistent.

I recall that we upgraded to 5x14 to solve some problems.

How hard will it be to upgrade the kernel in 5x14 to 3x?

We need it for video hardware (Hauppauge and SiliconDust) and MythTV.

Thanks!

When I tested monkey find 1.7 with
Exprimo it worked better with foreign characters
than any other distribution.
