I happen to have a laptop extra to test this and are now downloading.

What does "pukka" mean?

I will see if it eats up my hardware and ignites a fire in my laptop Very Happy

There is no evil like Microsoft evil... Twisted Evil

So i make a test just to see if this is as bad as the comment fields are indicating or if its just a matte of a little "not invented here" syndrome:-)


After few weeks on this forum
I think this syndrome is real: roll:
It seems to me that Puppy Linux is one of the best Linux distribution but its the worst community Confused

Worst community?
Why?

I got dozens of thousand help here.
Thiefs are not welcome here...
Everyone have an own project are well known here...

I have created xp - like puplet to use it for begginers for their old computers.
It was the easiest way to help them to change operation system to a faster one (on useless machines).

Puppy runs better but some beginners afraid of change.
It was a puplet helped them to understand puppy is a good way to use their low cost machine.

NOTICE: I read Pmount wont work. It is because of gtk. It was my main issue as i making this puplet.
Change gtk theme for base (polish blue, or some already builtin) and it will work...

I have a problem that takes my head with lots of puppy and nobody answer me (at least "we don't know!") and it gets on my nerves.
sorry Crying or Very sad

To quote from Wikipedia, it is UK slang for genuine or very good. I was using the first definition. A certain TV chef over here introduced the latter!

The index page says for this place:"Using ... configuring".


Yes - but this is not about using-configuring. It is a Puppy derivative so should appear in that forum. It seems it now does so a mod must have moved it.

I wish I could see what's inside ISO without actually downloading it, just like you are


I can see files inside an ISO. They look right but it would not be too difficult to, for example, alter the initrd.gz so that the init file within deleted all the files on my hard drive! I am just being cautious.

Open source works on building trust and respect. With a first post in the wrong place and with little background info levels of trust and respect are mimimal. If s-kami's claim of ownership is valid, as it seems to be since he knew about the pmount bug, then I'm afraid your levels of trust and respect have not been enhanced.

I followed s-kami's early work on his 431 based Puppy. Not having been to the Hungarian forum I did not know about the 528 based equivalent. As I like 5.2.8, like the idea behind the XP theme and definitely like Wine and Portable Apps, I like the thought of LucidXP. Kudos to the author and hopefully, with the forum's help, we can iron out the bugs that have been noted by kooliepup and others.

So... it is not nice from you...


Yes, only the wallpaper is the same, but my guess it is Microsoft proprietary, not yours? All the rest in the masterpiece of yours isn't even close to my customization (if you know what I am talking about).

Some more updates. There are two items in the archive:

1. shell32.dll.
This will replace Wine's folder icons with WinXP original. Just copy it into /root/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 and overwrite original one. Supplied shell32.dll is exactly for the Wine version in this derivative. I didn't test it with another Wine versions o builds.

2. <speaker icons> folder.
New view of the speaker on the taskbar/fbpanel. Overwrite originals in the folder /usr/share/retrovol/images.

Note: I am not responsible for the Microwave oven in your kitchen, damaged by these files. Smile

2 s-kami:

You'd better download and try my version. Hope after that you'd be able to see huge difference, but your opinion as a software expert, based on the screenshots, definitely worth a million. Probably two millions...

Oh, by the way, did I steal something from you? Name please.
