I would also like to mention that last march 15th was the five year anniversary of the macpup project. Very Happy

Then I would like to congratulate !

Am running MP529 frugal PUPMODE=12 today to see if I could get xorgwizard to load the vesa driver instead of the intel one. Probably need to "options i915 modeset=0" it to achieve it.

For the XKB Module there I would like to mention to search for fbxkb .pet on the forum . That works quite fine .
I have something like this into /root/Startup
Code:

#!/bin/sh
setxkbmap -rules xorg -model pc102 -layout us,de,dk,fr -variant "" -option grp:rwin_toggle,lv3:ralt_switch
which fbxkb && exec fbxkb


E17 tray behaves a little better when inserting a tray applet after e17 has configured as on Foxy3 . Am missing the recover xmessage menu a little bit for now to recognize when e17 loads an older whatever.cfg file .

Also have set mouse buttons to behave like in jwm to scroll from screen to screen :
Control Panel > Input > Mouse Buttons > Add > scroll down/up in the popup > Change to right/left Workspace + Check container .

[ * BTW Do you mean tourists as "leafers" ? Like the caravan of camels . Nevertheless, probably the first of the egypt themes i'll try. But today it is Moonlight-3 Smile ]

I call my buddy Jeff and his gang the leafers cause they use a leaf as the symbol of their distro. Laughing

Example :
tail /root/.xinitrc from_some_other_Puppy _at_the_moment wrote:
# rox -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin
#fi

#exec $CURRENTWM
#v2.11 GuestToo suggested this improvement...
which $CURRENTWM && exec $CURRENTWM
[ -x $CURRENTWM ] && exec $CURRENTWM
exec jwm

###END###

Put something like this above #exec $CURRENTWM
Code:
setxkbmap -rules xorg -model pc102 -layout us,de -variant "" -option grp:rwin_toggle,lv3:ralt_switch

to be able to toggle at least using the right Win Key (not sure if Laptop has right Win Key -> -option grp:lwin )

Note : There seems to be a "bug" in Xorg detected by npierce some longer time ago, that disables the toggling if -layout de,us and I did not played with it much because somehow I always added de to the existing us layout in the xkbconfigmanager, which always made us first , but the few times I played with it, npierce was right.

Note about xkbconfigmanager : It writes into the existing /etc/X11/xorg.conf , which would lose it's changes every time new Chip or Monitor is detected . That's why I put it normally into /root/.xinitrc .

Note about remaster : Make sure, your changes in /root ( and /etc ) flush into it ( .hidden files obstacles) .

Hi Karl Godt !
Can make german keyboard working by using Advanced xorg-Keyboard-configuration but it will not be saved .
Configuration also does not last after restarting xserver .
How to make it persistent ?

Might be a feature of the new xorgwizard-automatic "crap" .

http://www.x.org/archive/X11R7.5/doc/man/man1/setxkbmap.1.html

Dunno much about setxkbmap other than to look into Dougal's code in /usr/local/apps how he does it .

Hi.

I have downloaded MacPup 529 because of its beautiful Egypt-Theme. Before I began my work on LazY Puppy I did already try MacPup 525 which has worked fine on all of my Computers.

The 529 unfortunately has redraw problems on desktop and inside the rox windows - like all newer puppies I've tried until today.

Only about 60% of the upper desktop and window contents are visible and redraw works correctly.

The rest of the desktop and window contents are invisible!

Is there any solution for this redraw problems available?

# find /usr -name "n*_drv.so"

Seems not to have nv_drv.so on board . Have intel chip and my nvidia cards are ten years old and have not tested MP529 on the old boxes until now .

Buguletto:
Have altered /etc/fonts/local.conf and enabled the two commented parts . Firefox-14.0.1 looks nicer now .

EDIT: Current Slacko-5.5 has also enabled them, while Precise-5.4.3 and current Precise-5.5 still have them commented .

Hello R-S-H,

This is a "known issue" with the nVidia GeForce FX5200 graphics card and the nouveau driver.

The solution is to boot with puppy pfix=ram nouveau.noaccel=1

and/or edit the file /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau.conf to:-

options nouveau noaccel=1

see also here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=85704

Another solution is to install the proprietary nVidia driver 173.14.37 from the nVidia website

It works perfectly - thank you very much!

I have played a little with MacPup, actually given one complete day to play with it!

It is dangerous, really really dangerous!

It works pretty well and it looks fantastic, also it feels comfortable when using it.

The only things I've missed very much is the comfort of my LazY Puppy when trying to remaster the MacPup and of course LazY Puppy's ability and comfort of using SFS files and running them programs by the RunScripts.

So, I did refine a little the LazY Puppy Remaster Suite and also the SFS P.L.U.S. - after installing those Application-Suites I did made the first, now renamed, remaster of MacPup.

Current working title: LazY MacPup

Now, after a few remasters and one days work, it has the comfort of my current LazY Puppy 3 (private version) Main OS!

And now, Ladies and Gentlemen - I mean that - now it is REALLY DANGEROUS! In fact that much, that I've decided to use the MacPup in combination with the LazY Puppy Main Applications for a very special purpose, which I will explain now:

- since I have released the first LazY Puppy (5.2.8-4) I've installed it on usb flash drives and given them away from time to time (on birthdays etc. or just for fun). I will now change this behavior and will do this in the future with the "LazY MacPup"!

I hope, this will be allowed for me to do?

And also I would like to create a LazY MacPup Theme for this. Is there a MacPup Theme Builder available?

Thanks,

RSH

HI RHS !
Is your remastered MACPUP 5.2.9 or 5.2.8. ?
If 5.2.9 how did you solve make german keyboard working persistent ?

Anywhere downloadable ?
I like that enlightenment E17 desktop ...my favourite one .

Cheers
