In regards to theming.....I like wbar but found it a bit fickle and slow to load on boot..maybe its better now?


With Lxpanel you can have something similar to Wbar but loading instantly, see my screenshots above.

FYI...My friend recently got a brand new dual core asus laptop and came over to show me and was very disappointed at the speed of his machine compared to puppy 5.2.8-6 on a single core 1.86mhz laptop that came from the ark..... Laughing


I love it when we don't need to tell anything for them to understand why we like this OS. All they have to do is watch and compare. Laughing

Exactly! One of the reasons I became a LXDE fan!
Lxpanel can look really plain and uninteresting, but with some simple tweaking, it comes alive, doing what you want it to do!

If anyone doubts the beauty of lxde, have a look at the Trisquel Mini! (just installed it some days ago)

Wonder when jejy69 will be back from swimming the Atlantic...Puppy needs more lx-goodness Wink

thanks rcrsn51

I will try the nbtscan file from slacko see if that helps with connecting to my PVR.....unfortunately yassm has a similar problem to pnethood for me.....

ahhh ok vicmz.....

I thought that was wbar in your images..maybe I should pay more attention to the text rather than look at images and assume.I blame tv brain rot.....if lxpanel loads quickly thats a better solution than wbar for me and will try it...I hated having my desktop up and running and waiting for wbar to load....but i liked it so i used it for a long time.....

Cheers

PostPosted: Mon 30 Sep 2013, 21:13    Post_subject: Lucid Pup 5.2.8.6 disk images updated to 20130930  

I have uploaded a set of 4 ISO files labeled as 20130930. They are available at the link at the original download posting, which explains the updates:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=726108#726108

All are identical in function; but some include LibreOffice, either embedded or as an optional SFS file, along with Java Runtime. The file now called lupuplus includes separate SFS files for frugal installation, which leaves it possible to easily upgrade either by merely substituting later releases of those SFS files. BTW, lupu contains a utility that creates an SFS file for the latest release of LibreOffice, so users can stay current as needed.

I thank radky for providing versions of his 5 "Pup" programs tailored for lupu and for making many recommendations for other improvements. They constitute the bulk of the upgrade.

While remastering the image files, I discovered a "missing link". The /root and /etc files in the SFS files were not being copied into the new image! The files in those directories included in installed pet packages do get copied, but not those in SFS files. The simple and consistent solution is to provide ".files" files in /root/.packages similar to those created for pets, but only for /root and /etc. I hope to come up with an automated way of creating them, for inclusion in the SFS creation tools, so that they reside within the SFS file.

As for this thread, I read that his computer has problems with 5.7.1 and not 5.2.8.x

5.2.8 is 486 compatible right?

I have my doubts, but would like to ensure that lupu works on pentium II and up, and to make a version that works on the k6 cpus. I think playdayz compiled some programs for i686, so that might leave out the 486s. But if there are only a few such programs that fail in a 486, we could ask someone to recompile them for the 486 level. Richt now, that is more than I can take on.

Thanks for pointing that out, atle. I interpreted "New one" to mean 5.2.8.6, but now see he clarified that in the end.

I tried Trisquel mini, appart from the beautiful wallpaper it is (although 200mB smaller !!) not really different from Lubuntu. They replaced Chromium with Midori ... Good thing is (did not test a lot) that their app installer works.

I do like the suggestion for LXpanel, but I am not sure it is in line with what Rerwin is trying to do. He just want's to bring 528 up to date. I am not sure how complicated such an update is, and what the associated risk is (to get everything stable again).

Hi Volhout,

I agree, the task Rerwin is undertaking is about the essential stuff and, in his own words, not about the embellishments...I got carried away with the -as always- enthusiastic post and screen print by vicmz. Wink

Speaking about vicmz, I would like to add my support for his proposal to "back-port" (is that the right term?) Momanager and internationalization! A lot of work has been done by Barry, Rodin.s, L18L, vicmz and many others to get Puppy into a visible position on the global scene.
It just wouldn't be right to go back to the old 'english-only' days.

One last thing: Trisquel...it is not a slimmed down Lubuntu, it is Ubuntu LTS, carefully pruned and fine-tuned and then they added LXDE...It is beautiful, not only because of the wallpaper, but also because it just needs 70MB of RAM (of 2000MB in my case). Show me another, equally modern distro able to do that!

And one very last and very off-topic thing: Being a Dutch-speaking person, I love your forum name as an ex- sailor and woodworker! Cool

At least on my particular k6-2 box, Lucid is a no go,refuses to boot. However there is always Lucid Retro with k-2.6.30.5....runs fine on the k6-2. Fine but a tad slow. Laughing

Seems to work well with Seamonkey 2.21 installed video played well. Sound and Video work well except for fullscreen on this older machine. Some Lucids - earlier ones had sound issues.

Htop showed 105 meg ram without anything open. Mini version 5.2.8.6.

Probably the best Lucid for machines like mine is 525 retro.

LOVED the new Wallpaper they are gorgeous.

Thank you rerwin and team for your efforts.


Machine: Sempron AMD 3000 1 Gig ram

Hi All,

Volhout:

"- Unmounting by clicking on the disc icon on the desktop. Slacko and Precise have this, when you click on the top right corner of the drive icon, it unmounts. In 528 I have to right-click an select "unmount" in the list.

- a terminal program where I can "cut and paste" with the same shortcuts as I can in other programs (either ctrl-C, ctrl-X and ctrl-V, or rightclick copy and rightclick paste)."

+1

vicmz:
"With Lxpanel you can have something similar to Wbar but loading instantly, see my screenshots above."
and because it can be set to "hidden" only showing up when moused-over, it overcomes the problem wiith wbar: being covered by windows.
But I'd ask vicmz to do some investigation as I couldn't simply install jejy69's lxpanel into Lupu.
