Thank you very much smil99, I'll redo a package with your changes, adding 'dbus-daemon - system' for each startup.
Thanks to you we'll can get a cinnamon stable and ready to use. Very Happy

Thanks for your kind patience !

We will succeed!

New Cinnamon package :
-Install package an simply launch "xwin gnome-session-cinnamon", don't need to restart.
I saved, rebooted, and Cinnamon works. I rebooted 6 times, I think it's enough Laughing

Maybe the final package ? Mr. Green

http://sourceforge.net/projects/checkmatelxde/files/Apps/cinnamon-1.6-v3.pet/download

Smil99 had a great idea by renaming .desktop files, so preventing them get started, and thus improving stability !
I added "dbus-daemon --system" in rc.local, to launch the process to each startup.

Hi jejy69
I installed cinnamon version 3 provided by you on a pristine install and I can happily confirm that cinnamon now survives after reboots. Very Happy
Hooray!
Thanks for your efforts and cooperation.

Will post back if I encounter any show-stopper again. Smile

Cheers.

Hi Jejy69, just wanted to let you know this. I uninstalled current Abiword, and then installed your new Abiword from your Sourceforge page. It installs and works, but it installs to Utility, not Document, Document/Publishing. Otherwise, everything so far looks good. Thanks, Rob
P.S. Frostwire installs the same way, into the Utility portion of Menu.

Hello !

@smil99, thanks you to confirm it works !
Now link is present on the website.
I wrote a new to announce that Cinnamon is now avalaible, and you helped me greatly. Smile

@oligin10 Thanks you for your report, I will rebuild packages.
It's .desktop bug.
If you want, you can fix with editing abiword.desktop in /usr/share/applications. Smile

I added 4 games :
-Nexuiz 2.5.2
-AssaultCube 1.1.0.4
-Lincity Ng 2.0
-Super Tux Kart 0.7.3

Thanks for your help !

Is there a possibility for a build using Precise Retro (w/o PAE)? Unfortunately my old Pentium M doesn't have PAE. I am currently enjoying using your slacko version.

Hi,

Can you share on how to install compiz to puppy precise please?
Is it just download the compiz-xfce4 lucid pet and installing it? Any other missing dependencies files to download? What about python?

Thanks!

Hello Pchan

On lxpup i install nvidia-glx-394.43-precisek3.2.29 from precise repo , thats for my gforce 6200 , reboot make a save file , install
cinnamonv3 , reboot install compiz-xfce4 reboot compiz was on

in the menu settings -- Appearance you change styles and icons and fonts and in the emerald settings you can change borders , you will have
to download some themes for emerald (google emerald themes) and click import that is it good luck.

Hi jejy69,
You may want to rectify this:
After installing cinnamon, many menu entries are lost. For example, third level menu entries under 'Multimedia' do not appear at the expected places. However, they are visible when one clicks 'All Applications' at the top of the menu tree.
Nevertheless, I am loving Cinnamon, thanks to you. Very Happy

Cheers.

Hello !

I added a package for Xfce 4.8, on the website ! Smile
However I recommend to use Carolina by Geoffrey and Elroy or ( Elroy and Geoffrey Laughing ) for a perfect Xfce puppy distribution.

mandibule2005, Wow, good job, I tried to get it working but without success for now. I will try to do qs you said, thanks Smile

nufan, I begin to create a no-pae Lxpup based on the retro Precise tomorrow. Smile
I think it will replace the venerable slacko version.
Thanks for your advice. Smile

smil99, exact... Cinnamon's menu bug ? It seems it does not support sub-menus...
I will try to find something about it.

Thanks all !

Thanks for sharing. Since Jejy69 said that mensa high video is already installed, I might just go ahead and install compiz-xfce4 and see how it goes. I am surprised that we don't have to install python. maybe it is already installed in precise_lx. I wonder if it will work under lxde of mate or perhaps xfce? I am avoiding cinnamon at the moment because my netbook is not so powerful. when cinnamon for puppy becomes more stable and will not mess up my beautiful lxpup, I will have enough courage to try it.

The other thing I want to ask is : What should I do if i want to switch off compiz and return to lxde? Is it (ctrl+alt+backspace > xwin startlxde)?

In saluki, compiz provided a way to turn on and turn off under the control menu.

Thanks

Jejy69,

Look forward to the non pae precise version of lxpup!

I did not succeed with a old computer and older nvidia graphic card
GLX components missing Lxpup still very fast for this one.

P.S. Congrats for your web page !!!!
