Did you update yaf-splash so it supports

Code:
yaf-splash  -close never -text zzz


I didn't see that on list of improvements.

Yes Don, the gtkdialog-splash was made executable, it hadn't worked for some time and was unnoticed, thanks again for making us aware of the problem.

RT2800 wireless

I have been unable to get a wireless usb dongle to work that shows as rt2800usb, this needs the rt3070sta kernel driver,
I have compiled this driver, now the device works.

Install rt3070sta-2.5.0.3-3.2.13-ski.pet then reboot your computer,
frisbee should now find the wireless device, which in my case shows as ra0, please report if this fixes your problem.

Hi everybody !
I follow Carolina development, it was so good since I tested the earlier release and then it wlll become surely amazing thanks to the improvements of all rc ! Smile
About this, I would recall a behavior related to programs who take some time to start.
E.g. when I start Firefox there are no signs of activities for 7, 8 sometimes also 10 seconds.
So, any user could think that the related processes aren't running, with consequent "temptation" of click again on that icon Confused
Maybe I'm the only one having this feel, but, maybe, it could be possible to show "something" in order to show that something is running (such as a little animated icon).

Run this from the terminal

Code:
firefox | notify-send -t 5000 "Firefox" "firefox is starting"


If that's what you are looking for you can add it to the firefox .desktop file in /usr/applications.

Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Firefox
Comment=Web Browser
Icon=firefox
Exec=sh -c 'firefox | notify-send -t 5000 "Firefox" "firefox is starting"'
Terminal=false
StartupNotify=false
Type=Application
Categories=WebBrowser
GenericName=Firefox
NoDisplay=false


The panel icon will have to be deleted an re-created for it to work for that one as far as I know.

Just changing the StartupNotify=false line in the firefox.desktop file to StartupNotify=true should give an hourglass or spinning ball etc at the cursor when starting. I do this in my opera desktop. Just checked, works fine for ff.

Hi all am i to expect that this Carolina is the current version of saluki.

if so i will test and install it. hopefully you will fix the problem with chrome browser later than version 12 not working.

finally i am glad to see that saluki is not completely done away with.

Hi rg66, hi Marv,
Thank You for the suggestions Smile I tried both!
The one form Marv is nice but the indicator has a strange behaviour, it go on with the "circle running" even if Firefox is present and after about three seconds it returns the normal arrow only if I move it out of the Firefox window... however it stops just a couple of secons later and then it isn't a problem.
The solution from rg66 is nice and maybe a little bit better for my needs, because it's a more visible and clear alert.
Moreover it's interesting because - maybe - it could be used also for other apps having the same problem.
Unfortunately I tried it (e.g. with LibreOffice) with a similar command but without success after the modification of the related file in /usr/share/application Embarassed
Maybe it's due to the need of recreate the menu entry, similar as for the panel icon for Firefox Confused

Oh, just an other little note: if I try to change the datetime in the clock on panel, using the "set time" in Control Panel, the value often doesn't change unless I restart Xwin or sometimes changes after a while...
However, this isn't a great problem Smile

Let me say once again that Carolina is great and this is a great forum! Very Happy

Hi guys,

Did a usb install.

Just to let you know that rc5 is up and running well, including the wl driver.

One problem I have only come across recently with both rc4 and rc5 is that youtube videos streamed full-screen continually freeze for a few seconds at a time.

This happens in both firefox and chrome.

This is unusual for this computer which is quite adequate for the task.

irishrm.

Carolina is a fork of Saluki, meaning it is based on it but not a current version of it. Currently, Saluki development has stopped.

Unfortunately, the Chrome issue cannot be fixed.

Hi @RG66.
I saw your Firefox post on this thread.

Barry posted on his blog about changes with SeaMonkey and was wondering if that effort applies to Firefox. in Carolina. Double de-compression may NOT apply here, but, Just wondering

Well, i gave it a try and pupzip gave an "archive format not recognized" error so i tried unzip from cli. It seemed to extract but didn't so I used winrar in Windows which worked.

Did the # cd omnidir # zip -0 -y -R ../newomni '*' stuff and got a 26.8 mb zip file which I renamed omni.ja, backed up the one in FF folder and tried it out.

It's really hard to say if it's faster or not, didn't seem to be on first run after a boot. You'll have to try it out and decide for yourself.

I think XBMC is better offered as sfs so it becomes easier to update. A couple of channels (TED Talks, HowStuffWorks, Icefilms,perhaps more) already stopped working in XBMC 11, I guess you need 12.2 to have these working but it is not in the repo yet.

In another thread I am trying to get PPLOG working
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=86326

the aim is to run a simple blog website which is visible to the web from within Carolina (lite)

but this has some problems of its own. PPLOG is visible in the package manager but does not install. Efiabruni's hacked version leads to an internal server error.

Carolina is almost totally compatible with Saluki, save for the xfce things, and wary5.


ok so what is different about the xfce and wary5 then. just doing my research before i jump into yet another puppy os.

i like saluki and am sad it is no longer being developed. why do all the good puppy os do that lighthouse and now saluki. at least the lighthouse website is still up and running with its last os for anyone wanting to use it its not maintained but still available.
