Trying to install a pet seems to cause major instability and gnome-terminal stops working.

Ouch, I also like Frisbee, following its installation, I encountered the same trouble, despite several attempts, none of my testing has not worked ... Confused
At the beginning, I thought the Dhcp was the source of the problem.


I did wonder whether it is may be because this puppy seems to be creating devices eth1 and wlan1 rather than the eth0 and wlan0 that every other puppy (including slacko) creates....no idea why this would be....

Cheers
peebee

p.s. I'm also getting the attached error message about a missing configuration from some of the utilities in the Control Centre....

@ James C, thanks to try the last ISO, what do you think about QtWeb ? Smile


Seems to be working fairly well.Browsing with several tabs open, including streaming video, and no crashes yet.Was kind of used to Epiphany but no problem figuring out the tricks for a new browser. Smile

I've installed various pets....Firefox and a couple of games......no difficulties yet.Installed Firefox but still using QtWeb.....

@ Terryphi : Instability ?! Ouch... Have you started with pfix=ram? Would it be possible to know the application you have installed ? What happens exactly ?
I have not encountered such trouble after installing a package, someone else has encountered this problem ?
Smile

@ Peebee : I don't understand why... I do not understand why, I'll try with pwireless.

For the Gnome Center Problem : Puppy has a fairly specific, and am having trouble with polkit / PolicyKit. I am not knowledgeable enough to get Puppy to tame the problem. But I just think around the problem by redirecting the non-functional shortcuts to those of Puppy, as the clock, and the Internet connection wizard. Wink

Cheers ! Smile

Ah! James C was too fast! Very Happy
QtWeb Petihar was found by the Francophone part of the forum, and advised me to. He had a good idea.

Well, the bug from installing a package appears to spread?

The Puppy is still operating with a low setting! Yeah! It flies? This is perfect! Very Happy

Resize personal storage file ( /usr/sbin/resizepfile.sh ) does not work with Gnome. However, if it is replaced with the version from Racy 5.3 it does work:

It was only one pet, Filezilla_3.2.0.pet, which caused the problem. Strange, it works with Slacko, Racy, Lucid, etc without problems. Anyway, I have now added Filezilla 3.4 which unfortunately has a ridiculous number of dependencies.

Running really well with Wine, Photoscape, Xsane and my negative scanner. Had a few lock ups processing very large image files but been fine on reset/reboot. Are there any plans to add more functionality? [/img]

Hello stowpirate !

Thanks for tests, wine works perfectly... Cool Cool

Mmh, yes.
I need to work more on the control-center, and on .desktop applications.
Maybe add Gthumb 2.12 and Brasero.
If you have ideas, say me ! Smile

Question :
Which menu do you prefer?
-Simple Menu ?
-MintMenu ?
-Custom menu ( Applications|Places|System )
-GnoMenu ?

Which one ? Very Happy

Posting not working! There must have been some strange character in my post causing it not show?http://www.btinternet.com/~stowupland/software/ I think it was tilda but this worked?

That was a tad off topic. I installed the other software you suggested all works OK. The gThumb software looks good but is a tad basic compared to Picasa 3.9 running under wine. Anyway I can see it being useful for quick edits.

Kompozer-0.8b1-Lucid.pet installed and works fine Very Happy

Resize pup save not working which could be an issue? tried the other resize option suggested and still not working,

I think a simple menu is always the better option. However the search in the Mint menu for apps is good but it takes up a lot of screen space.

As for applications I use, being a photographer I would like Digikam and ShowFoto albeiet they are KDE stuff! Now there is an idea as never had digiKam or ShowFoto running in any version of Puppy Linux. It is the best photo free editing software

cool puppy. I would love to try it, but it would take to long to download Crying or Very sad .

EDIT: I would like to see the Official Gnome Panel, which obviously is not an option. I would like to see an Openbox-GNOME alternative version.
