Hi Tote, I have added Gperiodic to my list just for you. Wink

@all
I've just finished remastering version 0.3.5 with a multimedia upgrade. I will test it out for a few days and do a few more tweaks before uploading version 0.4.

Hi Tman,

first I want to thank you for your work.
Myself have already tested some versions of Puppy Linux, currently I like this version with Openbox and tint2.

It is possible to install two keyboard commands (Keystroke) as default in your Tinted Slacko

alt + F2 = start gexex

Openbox rc.xml file can insert this:
</keybind>
<keybind key="A-F2">
<action name="execute">
<execute>gexec</execute>
</action>
</keybind>


print key = Created a fullscreen Scrrenshot, better start a screenshot program.

Sorry that my english is so bad.

Best regards

Hi primusvs,

Ok, I will add those shortcut commands to the next release, but I will do it with xbindkeys-config tool
That way, it will be easier for other users to set up their own key bindings.
Slacko 5.5 does have xbindkeys, but I don't see the config-tool there.

I have uploaded TintedSlacko version 0.4

It includes new Jwm themes, a restructured "Office" menu,
wbar, a recompiled Mplayer with libs for hardware acceleration (EDIT) for Nvidia graphics processors.. I will check on ATI and Intel chips at a later time,

I've also added libs for Bluray playback; they compiled fine, but someone with a Bluray player please test this for me to verify that it works.
Keyboard shorcuts can be added using Xbindkeys-config tool,

Hi Tman,

Today I have installed the TintedSlacko version 0.4 (full installation on HD)
Sound, WiFi ndraft D-Link DWA-140/DE, Nvidia GT520 Video Card, 1920x1080 resolution monitor were immediately recognized.
The first tests showed that until the Mplayer everything works fine for me.
Mplayer has problem to scale the video in full screen and other sizes. When scaling the movie in MPlayer opens another windows, but it was not scaled.
I have also been in other Linux derivatives such difficulties.
I have therefore taken as the known alternative video player VLC or the SMPlayer. Since the Gnome-MPlayer works, so I do not need this alternative video player.

A big thank you for your work

Excuse my bad English

Hi Tman,

Installed the Tinted Slacko 5.5.4G v0.4. It's impressive, everything checked appears to work properly. Additional software installed are Libreoffice, Bibletime, Wine and the Windows versions of Bible Analyzer, e-Sword and theWord which are also working great. Very Happy

Thank you,
Jim

Thank primusvs and Jim1911 for the feedback; glad you like Tinted Slacko.

@primusvs,
Oh I see now what you mean about the Mplayer Gui (also known as gmplayer) in full-screen mode, I have some different configurations in the pet below that will help, but it still has an issue with not displaying black borders. I have an Nvidia graphics card and installing the pet, and choosing 'nvidia' in the xorgwizard fixed the problem for me.
If you happen to have an Nvidia or AMD (formerly Ati) grahpics card, you can try one of the following pets.

amd_driver-12.10-catalyst-3.2.33-4g -- AMD/Ati video driver
amd_driver-12.6-legacy-3.2.33-4g -- driver for older Ati cards

nvidia_latest-304.64-3.2.33-4g -- Nvidia driver
nvidia_legacy-173.14.36-3.2.33-4g -- driver for older nvidia cards

But, you are right, GNOME-mplayer doesn't appear to have those issues.

Hi Tman, there're only 3 bugs I can find;
1. Firefox can't open any html file.
2. Pmusic opens playlist correctly but it won't play any Thai music.
3. Whenever I click next track, Gnome GUI will get enlargement.

Why there's no znes game for this version? Razz

I think KDE and Dolphin is the most powerful desktop & file manager for Linux. Please include them in your next version. I can't enjoy Openbox at all.

Thank you.

Hi Tman,

great, with the mplayer_settings-0.6.pet the scale is possible in full screen and in other modes.
There was no Nvidia drivers installed.
But I have found another little bug in Mplayer.
If you select another chapter in a movie DVD, the Mplayer breaks down at me. I tested with 2 Movie DVDś
Even when starting a Movie DVD no headings can be selected. The start of the Movie works from the context menu.
These problems did not the Gnome-Mplayer.

Best regards

@the last saviour

Thanks for reminding me about zsnes; I have added it to the list. I think I will add deadbeef music player and more fonts as well.

Tinted Slacko version 0.3 and up should not have the problem with Firefox not opening html files, unless perhaps you have installed an older version of Firefox_crash_recover pet.

As for KDE, yes it looks nice, but it is very bloated and requires a lot more power than openbox. I think you are just not familiar with the tint2 panel,
and having no icons in the main menu. I prefer it that way, but I can add xfce4-panel and provide it as an alternative, more user-friendly panel.

I am accustomed to ROX, but I can can compile Thunar, spacefm, and emelfm2 as separate add-on pets.
I may add one of them to the list as an alternate file manager as well. Xfe can be found in the Puppy Package Manager.
I can try to compile dolphin, but I am presuming that it will be very bloated as well... give me couple weeks and I'll see.

Hi primusvs,

Thanks for testing the gmplayer graphical interface for Mplayer. I am not sure why DvD menus are not running properly with it. At this point I don't think I want to keep that gui anymore, since the GNOME-mplayer gui works better, and is smaller in size.

I expect to have version 0.5 released sometime next week...

Hi Tman,

as previously mentioned, the Mplayer (gmplayer) with other Linux derivatives has always caused problems.
Therefore, I can very well take place after your decision here.

Have your Tinted Slacko Puppy a strategy.
I myself am looking for a Puppy version that is not fully loaded with some programs.
Tinted Slacko is based on the time with Openbox and Tint2 which I like very well.
If I could program myself, I would implement the following applications as default features:
Internet = Chromium or Mozilla Firefox
Mail = Claws Mail, Sylpheed or a Webmail Addon
Terminal = Lxterminal or Sakura
Task = Lxtask
File Mananger = Rox or PCManFM
Video = Gnome-Mplayer + VLC GTK or SMPlayer
Music = Deadbeef or Audacious
Youtube = GTK Youtube Viewer (Viewer and Downloader are incl. Sakura Terminal)
Word, Excel, etc. = LibreOffice with/also German Language Support Wink
Emulator = Wine to install or start any Windows *.exe programs when needed.

A nice transparent Grub splash Image when the computer boot.

When games should be installed, then what modern THPoker, AssaultCube, CS-Portable, OpenArena, UrbanTerror, a Steam Client to connect Online Games or PlayOnLinux

The programs will be replaced I would remove.
If possible, the following applications: JWM, Urxvt, Xconsole, InkLite, Abiword, Gnumeric, Pmusc, Mplayer (gmplayer), Xsoldier.

If the meaning and purpose of your Puppy distro to be a light with low resouces operating system, I would make more requests than a *.pet or *.sfs file.

Best regards
