PostPosted: Mon 20 May 2013, 12:42    Post subject: Pfind 5.11 screenshots  

rg66, no I mean the options in the screenshots below. pfindstart= startup menu, pfindaction= results menu. These do not appear in Carolina yet.

Especially the actions menu is very useful (allows for bulk operations such as copy on large amounts of files in different directories.)

screenshots were taken in Lucid Puppx 528005

yes wireless worked in rc, but NOT rc3.


Strange, rc3 is based on rc so if it worked in rc it should work in rc3. Are you using a savefile from rc in rc3? Have you tried it in ram? Did you check that the rc3 md5sum is correct?


I had no rc save, so yes I ran in ram. I used rc iso and delta to convert rc to rc3 nonpae, so no need for md5sum.

May I ask where's Elroy? No biggie,just wanted to say hi. I've been telling people everywhere I go about Carolina. You know, it's easy and fast to download... As I recall, Elroy is some kind of boss of a gambling club in Nevada? Well, again I'm just saying thanks and I dig it very much. Thanks dudes.

Hi Smile

I've built the RC3 with the delta non-pae and boot is ok. I had a savefile inside the directory, hope it won't hurt, I didn't kow if start from fresh is recommended... Seems very good. Did you do something with the fonts ? no change for me. See upup-precise from pemasu, it has very few fonts compared to yours but they all display very fine and the right font in the right place.
Great work ! Cool

Sorry for edit: do you follow this thread about the xdg menus ? could useful and very good in Carolina Wink

Zigbert replied (pm) to my question about pfind:

the problem is an outdated 'pfilesearch' which pFind depends on. Carolina 0.7rc has pfilesearch-1.28 while the latest is 1.34

Can somebody help me? I am really illiterate when it comes to linux.

I loved saluki and lalso lina lite 005. Now i want to try lina 007 but I have really no idea how to use what is called "delta" and create a non pae lina 007 iso file.

In lina lite 005, after installing freeoffice, I can load the program by going to the folder found in "Home\freeoffice\" but when i try to send a shortcut to the desktop, the shortcut doesn't work. So, whenever i want to use freeoffice i have to use the thunar file manager to start the program. I wonder if in the latest lina 007 , creating shortcuts by right clicking on the executable icon and sending a link for the executable file to the desktop works better. Although linux, especially puppy linux is great in many ways but it is hard to deny that some of the innovative features found in windows pc made it easy and intuitive for normal non technical users.

I have tried the lina 007 with pae but I find that the non pae works better on my netbook.

Thanks always to the developers. Thanks also to others who are knowledgeable about puppy linux for giving their feedback that will help to improve Carolina. Hopefully, my struggles as someone who is new to the world of linux will also help to make Carolina better.

there is an easy to follow tutorial on making an iso from a delta file here

If you don't have the 007rc iso yet you will need to download it and the 007rc to 007rc3-non-pae delta file.

007rc iso http://smokey01.com/carolina/isos/lina-007rc.iso md5 09ea8e858ef5137e6faef146d5f47f3f
007rc-non-pae delta file http://smokey01.com/carolina/isos/lina-007rc.iso___lina-007rc3-non-pae.iso.delta md5 d37ccfc54e8e7842e9b21e6d0663c4de

Hi rg66 ,

Thanks! Thanks!

I will try to do that. I am glad i picked up the courage to ask what i was worried might be an irritating question of the unlearned. The technical word "delta" actually made me feel a bit intimidated and i imagined that there is going to be a lot of deep reading on the linux system to do.

Thanks also to the carolina developers Geoffrey/(elroy) for making a simple to follow tutorial.

No problem, I was also intimidated with Linux at first. Glad I could help.

PostPosted: Sat 25 May 2013, 04:31    Post subject: Video equalizer  

whoopy: I installed smplayer 0.8.5 and v4l2ucp and the video equalizer in smplayer finally works Smile Not yet in UMPlayer but it is a start.

still, I would like a gxine for Carolina. It is the lightest play-nearly-everything player and it is especially great for playing large mkv files on low end computers

If you want something that play's just about everything, right click on the file and select " Open with Slimp Player " this is in 007rc3 and 007rc4.

Installed 007rc4.
Very nice-would like to give some time trying it out.

However failed to install BC-wl driver using Peebee-rerwin's packages.
Says kernel not supported.

Hopefully they might take a look.

Sounds like you installed the non-pae package. The one you need is broadcom_wl_delta-k3.2.13-ski.pet. Broadcom_wl_delta-k3.2.13-c.pet is for non-pae.

Geoffrey, very, very nice OS....

Thanks for your continued work on Carolina... and, of course, all the the support that you (and rg66) provide to us!!

Grub4Dos is not in the menu under System, but can be accessed in Control Panel... maybe that was by design.

Anyway, Keep up the fantastic work.
