Has this been tested in Exprimo?

Is there a PET or SFS, please?

One our children may really benefit from this.

Current Exprimo tested. Boots all the way to desktop without issues on 2 laps and 1 X2 6GB RAM. Spectacular again!

JRE, SAMBA, and muCommander all work as you designed them. Performance of Windows accessing Puppy's resources is outstanding over SAMBA.

Thanks for all you do for us.
P.S. Latest stable version of SAMBA is 3.67.

@Pemasu. Thanks for your reply! You are right.

Yes, it seems that I need delays here and there, not only for Bluetooth startup. There are some other, probably related, timing problems that I'm looking into. I''l come back on that later. A reason could be that I work with relatively slow USB 1.1 flash memory only, no HD.

For completeness sake: I use a Compaq Presario 1712AP laptop with Intel 1Ghz processor and 512Mb ram.

It seems I have found the reason why Bluetooth won't startup initially, that is, from a fresh, never-used- before squeezesave: there is no
'bluetoot-share directory' in /root. It is to be created and that is done in '/root/Startup/bluetooth' with the line 'mkdir /root/bluetooth-share'. That takes time and may be the reason why bluetooth won't startup. Changing the first 'sleep 1' in /root/Startup/bluetooth into 'sleep 5' seems to take car of that, initially.

At the very second boot, '/root/bluetooth-share' already exists (it is never removed) and the same line 'mkdir/root/bluetooth-share' results in a (hidden) error but takes less time, apparently, but not always.

Changing the second 'sleep 1' in '/root/Starup/bluetooth' into 'sleep 5' takes care of any second or later boots. The first 'sleep 5' then becomes irrelevant and could be reverted back to 'sleep 1' or the mkdir action could not executed at all.

Note that this is similar to my previous method by initially running /root/Startup/bluetooth twice from terminal: it could be about the initial creation of /root/bluetooth-share.

Whatever the solution (or workaround) is, I think that when the bluetooth tray icon initially shows a red "x", the user should be able to turn bluetooth on with a right-click on that icon. But it doesn't. It replies with a clickable 'Turn Bluetooth On' but you can't.

That's as far as my observations go. I understand that it may be hard or impossible to reproduce this on a relatively modern laptop, anyway, not like my rather battered, nearly 11 year old one.

Thanks!

I could just Google something, but I'd like something real and adds a firsthand narrative. I'm trying to promote a little distro hopping as healthy. Give a look please.

UPDATE: I'll use the DistroWatch written review, even though it's talking about Slacko.

I have been a bit silent due to heavy other activities. But...not totally unobservant.

I have compiled latest Geeqie-1.1 in dpup. Attached here. It has my previously included extra hacks included like Imgur photo uploader and edit with additions.

Also I have tested QMPlay2 which is Qt application and uses ffmpeg for backend. So...it is alternative to those mplayer frontends. It should play what my ffmpeg compile plays, audio and video. I had to edit the source code to get rid of one compile failure with libass and I also disabled pulseaudio dependency. I hope I didnt brake the app by doing those edits....lol.

It needs my opengl included qt libs, libva1 and libva-x11-1 debs.
If you install opengl included qt4 libs from PPM, install those 2 libgstreamer pets also...there is also icodecs and libglib2 dependencies suggestions....I dont know from where they come, not from me.
The name is qt_4.8.0_webkit_phonon_gstreamer_opengl

I think this ffmpeg frontend is promising and surely refreshing to have it since there are so many mplayer frontends. It has youtube search and play and it supports subtitles, probably libass also...if I didnt brake it.

PostPosted: Wed 12 Sep 2012, 12:06    Post_subject: using Canon MP160 pixma scanner on dPup-Exprimo 5X3.4.2.X  

Hi,
using (...for years on various Puppies since ... puppy4.20 ) the same Canon MP160 pixma scanner ... and now on dPup-Exprimo 5X3.4.2.X:
Yessss....!! scanning using Menu/Graphic/xsane scanner works out-off-the-box !!
Xsane has interesting more functions as Multipage, Fax, Mail possibilities.

Forum member rcrsn51's (find here ...thanks Wink ! ) specific Canon Pixma pets (as many others !) are also working nicely, especially if wanting more simple-to-use tools, and also to get smaller-sized monochromatic black-and-white scan files; xsane produces only «grey» scans which I believe to be bigger in size.

PostPosted: Thu 13 Sep 2012, 06:32    Post_subject: high cpu activity  

I'm using Dpup exprimo on a Core i5 sandy bridge, with a nvidia gtx550ti graphics card.
I'm using nv vesa video, because Xorg cannot display the native resolution of my monitor.
I'm running puppy from CD, with save file on usb flashdrive.
When I use Dpup 5x15, after startup the system monitor in the tray shows no activity, and top view processes says user0%, sys0% and idle 99%.
That's normal, I guess.
Temperature is 30 degrees.
But when I use Dpup 3.4.2.10, then the tray system monitor shows always high activity, even when i'm doing nothing.
Top view processes says 12%user, 25% system, and 61% idle, wit no app open except top view.
Temperature 40 degrees.
What can be the reason for this?
Is this because of the different kernel?

Bruno. Those basal activity things are something which is difficult for me to give straight answer. Probably it is kernel difference.

About nvidia graphics. Why dont you use PPM and install nvidia graphics driver from exprimo repo. I have uploaded it to the exprimo repo.
Or compile it yourself by using getnividia pet, which automates the package creation.
