OOOPS!!

Just had LxPup crash on me.....

I was transferring 2 files from usb stick to hdd.

Stick mounted OK - opened 2 tabs in pcmanfm - cut the files from the stick with ctrl-x - changed to the hdd tab - copied the files with ctrl-v

then clicked the unmount arrow thingy next to sdb1.....

BANG - crash!

On reboot, all was OK - and the files had been copied correctly.

I'll try later to duplicate on a pfix=ram run of lxpup as I don't want to mess up my savefile.

- LATER - couldn't duplicate this problem.....

EVEN LATER - may just have been a stick problem as I had to reformat it as it was stuck in read-only mode - but that also might have been a consequence of the crash - who knows....

Cheers
peebee

Many thanks and regards - Ray

Hello !

Thanks for you report.
I have a good new ! The next Lxpup will have "apt-get", "aptitude", and Synaptic with all precise's PPA.
Actually Apt and others work perfectly ! I can install, remove, add repos etc...
To test, I installed on a fresh Lxpup:
-Mate 1.4.2
-Firefox
-Thunderbird
-Xfce
-Vlc
-Libreoffice...
Mate is really really fast !
Issues for now: Only some libs ( Apt thinks some libs are already installed ). But easily installable with Synaptic.

Peebee, thanks for your advice and your .pet package ! Nice work. For appearance, I know it can be ogg for some person, I wanted to be original a bit. Smile
Could you try new LibreOffice please ? It's a .pet package now.

Sorry for your problem, but I'm glad to see you don't lost data. Uuuf ! Very Happy

Thanks all, yours advices, really, make me happy ! Very Happy

Thanks Geoffrey for yours tips.

How easy is it to get the panel to stick to the right hand side of the screen, instead of the left? And is it possible to move the applications/menu/task bar to the bottom of the screen? thx.

Jejy69,

Good news! Look forward to the next Lxpup.

Next to Lxde, I actually love Mate Gnome.

Hope you will not forget to make the non pae version.

Thanks! Wish you success and a bright future!

Hi greengeek

As easy as:

Right click on the panel and go into Panel -> Panel settings

Cheers

Thanks Peebee, that's exactly how I like my desktop to be now - browsers and word processors start at the top left (just like reading a book...) and the control functions are off to the right and bottom of screen (where they don't interfere with what I'm reading). Works well for me on my smallish screens.

PostPosted: Sun 02 Dec 2012, 10:05    Post subject: lxpup and video thumbnails  

hi all

just following up on my prev. post. i got video thumbs. yay.
i left lxpup to one side and grabbed exprimo pup as its squeeze based. i then ran thunar on my existing debian squeeze with CDE, which traces opened libraries etc. Grabbing the libs and copying them straight into exp pup is doing the trick nicely at the moment.
hacked up thunar (see pic) to offer a different message from 'root warning'. pic shows vobs and MP4/flash working. only type missing so far is realmedia.

im sure anyone using ubuntu precise can use the same nasty hack on lxpup.
im off to the exprimo pup thread now to hassle them.

cheers

Are you going to continue the Slacko-based Lxpup?

hi all

@bark_bark_bark
LOL
i have a few partitions, yes. more importantly it has come to my attention that i still don't have the contents of /your/ hard drive mirrored...yet.
my partitions are auto mounted nicely by 'startmount.pet'

@Jejy69
WOO!
In addition, YAAAY!

cheers
