Sorry but i haven't use it before! Embarassed

Now you know how create a md5.
There you just have to copy and paste the md5 in a text file, then upload it to your page on Sourceforge.

Hi, just downloaded iso. Is there a checksum available, couldn't see one? Thanks.


No, i didn't include one, sorry! Confused


Why not? Just run md5sum on your iso and put it in the main post.. browser downloads are not perfect.. especially from that other OS Wink


You mean like that?

@ koulaxizis

Many thanks for your Slacko-5.5_XL! There had indeed been a need for a Puppy as complete as this for a long time.

Continue your good work!

Hi Koulaxizis, this looks like a really nice puppy. I plan to install it and give it more of a thrash over the next few weeks. I do have some comments based on my testing from the liveCD, but these are not criticisms, just notes about things that would bring it even closer to perfection in my eyes...

1) The only thing that REALLY annoyed me was that there was a "reminder" screen that appeared a few minutes after opening the browser to tell me "Thanks for installing DuckDuckGo"... I found this very intrusive and it really annoyed me. (not your fault!)

2) Geany is missing from the document menu and is in the utility menu instead. I would be inclined to put it back into document.

3) My preference is to have 3 desktops available not just 2 and I prefer them to be visible towards the left of the taskbar, close to the main menu. (just force of habit...).

4) The Firefox font is tall and thin in some places but not others. For example, on the DuckDuckGo search page you can see that the "search anonymously, find instantly" text below the search bar seems vertically stretched and any text entered into the search bar is also stretched, whereas text entered into the url bar does not. I should probably know how to sort this out quickly by myself but I don't Smile

5) It seems incredibly slow to start LibreOffice from LiveCD. Havent tried installed version yet. The CPU load goes to max for a very long time while loading LibreOffice. I suspect this is mostly due to the way the CD I/O is operating on my system, so I'm hoping the installed version doesn't exhibit this. (I think this is the one redeeming feature of Abiword - snappy startup. However the benefits of Libre outweigh this in most cases)

6) Not much you can do about this one - but I have an issue with the name Slacko. I have had feedback from physically and/or psychiatrically challenged users who find the name offensive and so I have had to resort to installing other less capable puppies to satisfy those users. Some people just don't want to see the name Slacko up on screen, and given their circumstances I can see why. It's a shame because this is probably the most competent puppy right at the moment. EDIT : If I knew how to do it I would remove every instance of the name "Slacko" and replace it with XLpup (absolutely no disrespect intended to 01micko as Slacko has been my daily driver for a very long time now...)

Anyway - great job! This is a nice offering.

Hey, thanks for testing the iso and for helping me out to make it better! I'll try to comment on all subjects! Smile

1) During the last test of the distro, this message didn't appeared (nor on the previous tests). However, when i did a full install (after i had already uploaded and shared the iso), this message appeared on first firefox run! And yes, it was very annoying!

2) That's a correct point! There are two cases: Or it was like this on the original Puppy Slacko, or i made this by mistake! :p

3) Well, this is purely subjective, a matter of habit and preference. I suppose that everyone knows (or can easily find out) how to add or remove desktops.

4) I am not sure that i understand / see the problem (see screenshot)... Seems OK to me (note that i'm viewing it on a netbook)

5) Though Libre Office is a powerful office suite, it's irritatingly slow on startup (once again, note that i'm working on a netbook).

6) I didn't change the name because 01Micko and the community did all the hard work, i just choose some programs and customized the look, nothing important! I was in dillema even for adding "XL" on the distro! However, you can remove all Slacko wallpapers from /usr/share/backgrounds and change all distro specs from /etc/DISTRO_SPECS - be VERY carefull!!

I hope i covered you fully! Smile Thanks again for your time, it's really great to see that we have an active and always helpfull community! Very Happy

Hi koulaxizis

Nice puppy – all seems very good and working well OOTB.
Skype would have been nice – very popular. An sfs must be somewhere.

Running a manual frugal from an ntfs partition on the E732 laptop.

Hi koulaxizis,

I really like what you have done, great job Very Happy

If you want people to be able to edit the obmenu you will need did to remove obmenu-refresh from /usr/bin for there changes to be permanent. Or you can make a couple of scripts to move it to another location and than to put it back if people what to use it for the puppy menu.


Cheers

Thanks for testing the distro and for the advice! Smile
Obmenu was a last moment addition, so i didn't test it enough!

Hi Koulaxizis, I did a frugal install to my Toshiba laptop (2GHz, 512MB) and it is (of course) much faster than it was from CD. Good useability from LibreOffice - I typed up some documents and pdfs and was very happy.

I did have some other issues during my testing so I thought I would mention them in case others have similar problems and might be able to suggest possible causes I could look at. Here is what I found:

1) Sometimes if I click an audio file it opens in Pmusic as normal but plays twice at the same time (giving a sort of echo effect). There is only one instance of pmusic visible, but two identical audio streams playing at once.

2) When I play an mpg it works fine, but when I terminate it by clicking the cross at top right (ie close window button) it stops playing and immediately returns to the beginning and plays again. The second time I click the close window button it closes immediately. I don't get this effect with an mp4 or avi

3) Sometimes when I have a window open displaying the contents of a usb drive I see the cpu run indefinitely at 100%. This only stops when I close the window.

4) I have a directory which contains some .jpg files and a .svg file. If I click the first jpg it opens viewnior and I can then step through the jpgs ok, but as soon as viewnior tries to open the svg it drives the cpu to 100% for a long time then viewnior fails and closes itself. If I just click the svg by itself it opens fine with Inkscape Lite so the file itself is fine. Maybe viewnior should not be trying to open svg files? Maybe there is a window manager problem that is struggling to handle svgs???

Anyone else seen things like this before?
