Hi everybody ! Smile
Carolina is great and I'm using it in a pc with a frugal install because it's wonderful !
I would have just a simple question: in the website of Carolina there are two good tutorials about installation of AMD/ATI and nVidia drivers.
Both recall the devx_lina_xxx.sfs but only the 005 and 006 seem available.
The current version is 007 and maybe one of the above mentioned could be used or maybe there will be a new release (or maybe I didn't find it..).
However, could anyone kindly tell me any info about?
Thanks !

inoxidabile,

Do as smokey01 said, the devx is the same in all versions, you can rename it to 007 if you wish.
I should of mentioned that earlier, there is no point in duplicating it for each version,
well not until if or when there is a change to the devx, nothing is currently planned to be done.

Unfortunately, it seems that the release of ATI driver I need (Radeon X1200) has some conflict with the kernel... the installation shows a message, more or less about this.
However, it isn't a problem, it was only to try an improvement, the behaviour is acceptable also without that driver (thanks to the great Carolina!)

Would you check the version of yaf-splash that Carolina uses??

I am having trouble with command lines that use the close never option

You need a newer version of yaf-splash to support this option

Code:
yaf-splash  -close never -text zzz


http://puppylinux.com/howto/yaf-splash-new.htm


Quote:
-text EXPRESSION
-timeout COUNT (in seconds)
-icon GTK-XXX (for example: gtk-info all gtk-stock-symbols, default: none)
-bg COLOR (background color red, blue, yellow..., default: grey)
-fg COLOR (font color, default: black)
-placement center|mouse|top|bottom|top-left|bottom-left (default center)
-close never|mouseover|box (default is mouseover)
-deco TITLE (shows windows decorations, with title)
-fontsize SIZE (small, medium, large, x-large, default: large)

The yaf-splash links to gtkdialog-splash which is this version updated 13. Feb 2013 http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=626564#626564

I get a permission denied go to /usr/bin/gtkdialog-splash right click > Make Executable,
that seem to fix things, now I know why the old mtpaint screenshooter timer didn't work,
some of the splashs must of been using the old yaf-splash, thanks don.

PostPosted: Sun 09 Jun 2013, 05:15    Post subject: kingsoft office for carolina  

Hi,

I found a good office application called kingsoft office.

It has offered a ubuntu deb file for installation.

Is there a way to install this office software to use in carolina?

Thanks!

I've already tried that but there is no chance of it working
Code:

wps
wps: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by /opt/kingsoft/wps-office/office6/libQtGui.so.4)
wps: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by /opt/kingsoft/wps-office/office6/libkfc.so)
wps: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.14' not found (required by /opt/kingsoft/wps-office/office6/libkso.so)
wps: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by /opt/kingsoft/wps-office/office6/libkso.so)

Geoffrey ,

Thanks for the reply.

It is a great pity. I tested the kingsoft slide presentation program and found it to be quite close to the microsoft powerpoint as compared to the freeoffice softmaker slide program.

Anyway, i am happy that the freeoffice softmaker works in carolina.

I hope that someday, the kingsoft office will also work in carolina because carolina seems to be really a very capable puppy linux os and can handle many things very well. It is also very fast and has many convenient features that helps someone like me who knows very little about the technical and programing side of pc.

Thanks!

To Geoffrey....

Regards a simple snapshot program...

Have you ever tried psnapshot
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=595913

I made a simple change to mtpaintsnapshot.sh
and the snapshots are saved to a folder named 'Screenshots'.

Pemasu uses it in some of his distros.

Without going through the entire thread, I have to ask if there is an easy way to go back to using single-click with my mouse.
Currently, some things work with single click, and some require double-click in Carolina.
And I am using version 12 from the download directory.

The desktop is set for single click, to change this right click on the desktop > Desktop settings > icons tab > uncheck Single click to activate items.

Thunar is set for double click, to change this open thunar > Edit > Preferences > Behavior tab > choose sinlge or double click.
