Jejy69, what I do is add the zd1211 folder from your older lxpup versions into lib/firmware. It can be found in all your older lxpup versions and should be in beta 1 also. I just retrieved "zd1211" from "lib/firmware" on a release of lxpup that does connect to wifi and dropped it into the "lib/firmware" folder. Then i just add a "modprobe zd1211rw" into xinitrc file or anywhere to would issue the "modprobe zd1211rw" command on startup. Then it loads the firmware up and allows frisbee to connect for me.

I personally liked the first kernel you used in beta 1 better. I could load up puppy package manager and grab my nvidia driver with that kernel. Now the nvidia drivers in ppm dont match up with new kernels your using. Im sure thats not hard to work around either way. Dont forget about video thumbnails for me in pcmanfm. Its driving me crazy trying to get them to work in pcmanfm! Shocked

Hello xstylezx Smile

Thanks for your tip, zd.... firmware will be added next time. Don't worry about drivers, I will try to compile them. Smile

About the thumbnails, they works thanks to totem.
Luckily I compiled totem, and all its dependencies, you just have to install it. I tried and it works, I have thumbnails icons.

To install Totem + Deps, open a terminal and paste :

Code:
slapt-get --install totem totem-pl-parser gst-libav gst-plugins-bad1 gst-plugins-bad1-extra gst-plugins-base1 gst-plugins-good1 gst-plugins-ugly1 gst-plugins-ugly1-extra gstreamer1 clutter clutter-gst clutter-gtk cogl json-glib libsoup gmime gobject-introspection at-spi2-atk at-spi2-core gtk+3 libpeas libarchive lua libquvi gsettings-desktop-schemas

Hi Jejy69

I regret to report that LxPup 13.04 Beta3 does not support Broadcom wifi as issued.

The wl driver for the new kernel is not present at all. The driver made for ThinSlacko - here - works

The firmware for the b43 driver is present but is not in the right place to be found and any mechanism that should be installing it to the right location seems to have stopped working. dmesg says:
Quote:
[ 36.457382] b43-phy0: Broadcom 4311 WLAN found (core revision 13)
[ 36.510033] b43-phy0: Found PHY: Analog 4, Type 2 (G), Revision 9
[ 36.530148] Broadcom 43xx driver loaded [ Features: PMNLS ]
[ 36.636476] b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43/ucode13.fw" not found
[ 36.636480] b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43-open/ucode13.fw" not found
If you manually copy the firmware from /lib/modules/all-firmware/b43/lib/firmware to /lib/firmware then the b43 driver works after a reboot.

Also, in pcmanfm, the Desktop applications under the Applications bookmark never open.

Cheers
peebee

Hello !

Thanks Peebee !
I think it's fixed in the latest ISO.
I downgraded menu-cache ( applications menu issue ), since the 0.4.1 causes a crash, with glib : "double linked"...

http://sourceforge.net/projects/checkmatelxde/files/Lxpup-13.04/lxpup-13.04-beta4.iso/download

Cheers !

Jejy69, I meant to get back to you sooner. I issued the command in terminal for totem, I got a couple of error messages during completion that I didn't really have time to spend a lot of time on. Hopefully you will include thumbs in a final Very Happy

Going to try the beta 4 and see how it works for me. The beta 1 kernel so far has been the only one to work consistently on my computer and graphics card. I'm at 2gb ram, and pae works better so far on lxpup... Confused

Hi.

Within the last weeks I did mostly do some work to get some main features from my LazY Puppy to work in other puppies. Therfor I did create my VSP-LazY-Puppy-Builder, which is a script that installs some PET files, runs some Scripts to modify some files and gives me just a few steps to do, to create a new puppy derivative, that gives about 75 to 95 percent of LazY Puppy's comfort to me - by using then a different puppy! Very Happy

By now I did create a VSP Puppy from Three Headed Dog and also a LazY MacPup - just for example (there are some more like based on Precise etc.).

But, today has been a very special day!

Today I did download the LxPup 13.01 and turned it into LazY LxPup 13.02 whithin a few hours. It seems to run very good on my computer and it looks very nice (now). Wink

Thanks for this nice LxPup 13.01!

Strange? Try with the latest ISO.
I just tried, and I have no problem. If you still have problems, can you tell me which are they?
Thanks Smile.

Hello RSH, Smile

You intrigue me a lot, I'll try this software I absolutely do not know.
Please, what is the link to this software?

Have a nice day !

Is beta5 a PAE only ISO? I'm still using the non-PAE beta2 on my laptop.

Hello Natgab !

No problem, I kept the kernel without PAE. Wink
What a coincidence, I finished watching Kiki anime today. Laughing

--Great! I will download when I get back home from work to load it on my laptop so I can see all the improvements. The pictures look great.

I hope you also try some of the other movies by the director, Hayao Miyazaki. I love all his movies.

Hi Jerome,

I installed beta 5 on my laptop, my small problems:

1) Had trouble with save file. First time got corrupted after I had added a few applications and tried to do first save. Wiped my USB, re-installed

and then save file worked fine with all my applications installed.

2) XORG opened to 800 x 600 and filled only 3/4 of screen. In beta 2 it opened up full screen at 800 x 600. (see picture)

3) Task Manager icon on bar is only halfway. If people don't know how to adjust settings, this might be a problem.

4) Desktop Preferences opened up behind the LXpup control center window, everything else opens in front.

5) I LOVE the small set of built-in applications. That is the other problem I have with regular Puppies (or Debian). I don't need 3 different

text editors and all those specialty applications that most people don't use. Gsplapt worked quick and easy to add Firefox and my regular applications.

6) Large button are great on the panels, no more accidents!

7) Installed VLC, did not work. Messed up GNOME player aftwards.

Now I don't have a working media player : ( <--Any ideas? I tried removing & re-installing VLC.

Yes ! My favorites are Mononoke Hime, Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi and Tenkū no shiro Rapyuta. The most famous, it seems. Smile

Thanks for your report,

1) Strange thing, you reinstalled same apps between and after ?

2) Kernel seems to be too recent, I'll make an second ISO with an older one.

3) Indeed, I think it's because of the resolution. I search a solution.

4) I don't know how to fix it ><'

5) & 6) Good news !

7) VLC 2.0.6 is available. Compiled to allow root user. It works Very Happy.
Don't forget to update Gslapt.

Thanks

Hello R-S-H,

I'm talking about VSP-LazY-Puppy-Builder-Script.

Thanks

Smile

Hi,

I assumed you meant this script, but was not sure! Laughing

Yeah, in fact this script is not known at all, because this is made for my own purposes and I could not imagine, it might be useful for other users and/or could be create some interest. So, that's why it is currently only usable for user that are able to read/speak/write German language. Also it is currently set up only for the use of the main SFS from my private LazY Puppy version 3 - which is not available on the web.

But there are some good news - hopefully...

I am currently working on this Script. Creating a nice GUI to set up preferences and stuff easily, adding option for the use of the main SFS from LazY Puppy 2.0.2 - which is still available on the web, adding popup Info GUIs etc.pp.

Unfortunately everything is still made in German language only. It's too much text, too specific somehow so, I'm not able to do the translations of the locales file.

When finishing my work on the script I'll try to find someone who is able to do the translations for this. If successful I'll return to this.
