Subject description: on pup412, barebones-retro, frugal install
 

hello all,

i'm using puppy 412, barebones retro, frugal install
having an issue with screen blanking which led me to
a thread with a possible solution which might be made
permanent by adding a line to /root/.xinitrc.

i looked for /root/.xinitrc, with hidden items on, rox not showing it

i opened pfind, which showed showed 2 of xinitrc and 5 of .xinitrc
neither /root/.xinitrc nor /root/bakup .initrc show in rox

the other 5 instances are shown, 4 in /initrd/..., 1 in /usr/...

this 412 has been in sucessful use for several years, i'm posting from it.

any ideas about the rox/pfind discrepancy would be welcome.

cheers, mm

Subject description: ask find
 

hello mmmrr,
my idea is:
use just a console
and type
Code:
find -name .xinitrc


On my system (no 412):
Code:
# find -name .xinitrc
./.xinitrc
# pwd
/root
#


find is easy to use
./ mneans in this directory
pwd means print working directory
So there is 1 file named .xinitrc in directory /root

thanks, L18L,
for yr swift response, i get the same result:

# find -name .xinitrc
./.xinitrc
# pwd
/root

which still does not make it appear in rox where i can open, examine, modify it though i can do those things in a console editor such as e3

when i move up a directory:

# cd ..
# pwd
/
# find -name .xinitrc
./root/.xinitrc
./initrd/pup_ro2/root/.xinitrc
./initrd/pup_rw/root/.xinitrc

when i enter xinitrc:

# find -name xinitrc
./usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc
./initrd/pup_ro2/usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc

no files named bakup .xinitrc, bakup-.xinitrc or bakup_.xinitrc are found

i appreciate this way of searching, thank you.
my question remains: why does not rox show files which exist?
has rox degraded over time?

i don't understand the three votes reference...

cheers, mm
