Does that command apply to ANY RW disk [DVD, or CD], or only CD-RW disks?

I've never tried it, but the equivalent DVD command looks like
Code:
dvd+rw-format -force /dev/sr0

New install, however, I'm using my rc save file. Everything works fine so far with the existing save file. I will generate a new save file. Your new pmount is a pleasant surprise, loads much quicker than the old one and has a nice "check and fix feature".

Thanks for another super distribution which is going to the top of my menu.lst.

Cheers,
Jim Very Happy

Thanks for all the kind words and for all the help during testing.

The ISOs and devx are now up on Ibiblio and should soon go to all the mirrors.

I have added Seamonkey Mail capability to Geeqie. (Thanks to CatDude)

If you right click on a photo in the main window or side (left) window, select edit, then mail, you can parse photos to Seamonkey mail in compose mode. The photos are shrunk to 1024x768 before attaching. You can select multiple photos by pressing shift or Ctrl when selecting in the left window.

Gimp can be used by the same process. Simply right click on the photo, Edit, Gimp, and your photo will be loaded into Gimp ready for editing.

The Geeqie html help file is also available from the edit menu.

Enjoy.

Thanks very much to kirk and jamesbond for this amazing distro!

I'm still using the rc but will upgrade, I'm running my remaster on a
fast 4gb flash drive with a 1gb savefile, no problems Smile

Just downloaded the new distro and so far it's working great except for one thing (please excuse my noobness)...

Can anyone tell me how to open a file from firefox in fatdog64-600? I have read the manual and faqs and spent a few hours trying to figure it out. I tried the spot thing suggested, didn't work, I also tried changing the config file from firefox -spot to just firefox with the exec parameter, that doesn't work for me either. Other programs seem to load files from my data drive (internal) on my laptop, but not ff.

I have just burnt a live cd and loaded that so not using any sfs or save files yet. All I want to do is to read the file, I'm not trying to write anything and I put it in the suggested location for spot and copied it to the desktop, so I know it's there, but it won't give me permission to read, when I use the open file command from the ff menu.

I don't know what else to do or where else to look for information, so if someone would be kind enough to point me in the right direction, I'll go and spend another few hours trying to figure it out. Is it really this difficult?

Also the forum did not remember my change of password and blocked me out for half an hour. So I've spent about four hours just trying to upload some files to you and log in to the forum.

Anyway, you FatDog64 users, hope you like the wallpapers I made, and thanks to the chaps for taking the time to do the distro.

I'm a little bit frustrated to say the least, so apologies if I sound a bit cranky, but it's been a long session and the last thing I needed was having to reboot back into windows (where I had just rebooted from into FatDog, coz that's where I did the graphics).

And sorry if I posted things in the wrong section, feel free to move, now I'm going to catch some sleep.


Anyway, this was just my way of saying thanks for the new distro - enjoy!











I've got a few more that I'm working on, so if people like them, who knows, I may upload some more Wink.


Cheers.

Has anyone attempted the older virtualbox build script found here in 600Final?

And has anyone build the latest truecrypt (7.1a) for any of the recent FT Betas or RCs?

I now have that recorded in my "Commands" text file on a Flash Drive, for possible future use. Cool

I don't get it, what exactly are you trying to do?

Ruff-Boy maybe one need to mount that drive that the file is on.
And even add it as a file for Firefox to open in case that is not obvious?

I apologize if I have misunderstood what you talk about.
As JameBond indicate in his answer above maybe try
to describe where you are at that moment and what you click on?

My experience is that sometimes one need to do mount first.
Either using menu Files and Mount or using the Terminal some
CLI code that do such mounting,

If this "All I want to do is to read the file" is how you boot then
one most likely has to mount the partition that the file is on.
Or maybe even move the file to the spot directory?

Haha it took me some 30 minutes to find my old post from June 15 about it.

Is this what you talk about?

The easier way for me where to move my html file from home to spot!


I had a html file on my HD that I wanted to use as a bookmark page
that could be loaded in the Browser and the only way to do it where
to move it from / or /mnt/home to /spot

If I talk about something entirely other you have to describe it in other
words so somebody get what it is all about Smile

Older text explaining it.

lies on my sda2 file and have tested it on some 25 different
OS and many many puppies and only fatdog with this SM
failed to read it. So that where odd.

JameBond says:

Fatdog runs the browser as spot. Spot does not have access to your sda2
(by design). If you don't like this, edit /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser and change "seamonkey-spot" to just "seamonkey".


So that could explain why you could not use that file. Or none of us get what you talk about?

I have the same problem. I cannot import the bookmark.html file to firefox even the file has been copied to the directory /root/spot/. I also cannot open the bookmark.html file from the menu:file/open file/.

Is there any other methods to import the bookmark file to firefox?

Because Firefox is running as the user spot, you must make your bookmarks file owned by spot.
Code:
chown spot:spot bookmarks.html

Then it will import.

I had better results saving my bookmarks as a json file, then using Restore instead of Import.

(a) How should I do that?
I don't know how to import bookmarks using html file, or restore either.
I have a bookmarks-2012-06-03.json backup file.

(b) I had "Firefox sync" in use, but lost the "Recovery key" for my sync account...
[Old PC hardware failed, and don't have a recent backup of my password vault, that includes the Firefox sync Recovey key]. Sad
