rg66... 'nice job' on this precise!

Just started playing with it but so far all seems well except one small thing...

PPM says 'xsane scanner' is installed for my printer, for the life of me I can't find it in usr/share/applications or anywhere else? Where oh where might it be hiding?

'thanks'

Since most scanners are integrated into all-in-one printers these days, I decided to removed Xsane but the sane backends are still there. Get the pet here: http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-wary5/xsane-0.997-patched-2-w5c.pet

I guess I'll have to collect all the packages I removed and have them in X-precise's quasi repo.

Wow, this is a really cool development...! And also like to have a lot of applications have been canceled. Very fast! I'm thinking of Hungarian translations and versions.

Thanks, kros.

You might want to wait as v2.1 is coming soon, not too many changes but it will have acpi added so suspend to RAM works.

In many cases, the necessary environment for java. Unlike traditional Java application can be used in OpenJDK application. Members of the Hungarian Bigyula, made ​​one (which is still available only place dropbox.com) to the puplet is perfect. (eg run Libre Office, online banking, etc.).

I've made an acpi .pet from the repo packages. I can confirm that suspend to RAM works but since my only pae laptop is broken I can't test any further.

Hopefully someone can test this and give feedback before I add it to X-precise-2.1

Thanks

nudge nudge wink wink. Any chance of a non-PAE? I've pretty much made the split where the new(er) PAE capable laptop is 64b (fatdog) and the older non-PAE lappies are tweaked Carolina or alphaOS. Just curious,

Thanks yr1945, I fixed my laptop today so I can test and make sure fan control etc... works. I saw a toshiba acpi/fn key package I might toss in as well.

Good to hear from you Marv. Ya, there is a plan for non-pae after I sort some stuff out for v2.1.

rg66... on both Carolina and Xprecise I always remove the NEW shutdown-gui... then, add Saluki's shutdown-gui... it requires less clicks and maneuvering... just saying.

Hi rg66

JFYI - your acpi-Xprecise-1.0.pet works fine.

Suspend works via the shutdown gui - not when laptop lid id closed (that’s ok).

Resume works as expected - ie:(open the lid and then touch space bar).

Very nice puppy - many thanks.

First of all, this is exactly what I'm looking for.
On to a few hiccups and then preferences

Clicking on the Puppy universal installer in the control panel errors out with
Failed to execute command /usr/sbin/puppyinstaller2
Checking the sbin dir I see that puppyinstaller exists and does the right thing. Probably just an artifact from some alternate installation channel pulled in.
Pcur, after being launched, goes straight to the background when the mouse leaves the launch button's area. I suspect this is more a problem with Pcur than with the main control panel. The Pcur window is too small when it is launched. Please add a couple more cursor themes. If possible add a "restart X" button to Pcur.
As is common with the puppy package manager in other puplets, this one too does not resize well. When you maximize the window the main window for the list of apps does not resize with you. I'd prefer something a bit more graphical. I'd prefer quickpet_precise as a easy entry way to get some programs. Hopefully it fits in the goal of x-precise.
Adrive builder needs a better introduction statement as to what it does. Most of puppy is fairly verbose when it comes to walkthroughs. This is one of the few cases that does need it.


Preferences:
Removable devices checkbox in Desktop control app checked.
Panel config app is lacking apps. Please at least find a website where you can download some panel apps and add them.
For the Applications Menu's properties please have "show application description in tooltip" checked by default. This is a HUGE boon to people entering the Linux world.
In WIndow Manager Tweaks: Compositor, check "show shadows under regular windows". This really comes across as polish.


Overall I'm extremely impressed and view this as what puppy should be.
