I found that the Custom DPI isn't working until it is unchecked the checked again, this will increase font size and boldness, give that a try, you'll find it in Control Panel > Desktop > Appearance, hope that helps.

Refer to my previous post about installation of VBOX in Carolina, I finally managed to get it working without any problem. I used the vbox.sfs from carolina's repos also loaded the devx.sfs file and all goes well. Here is the screenshot.

Subject description: lan file transfer application
 

Dukto, is a lan file transfer application, it also comes as a app for Window, Mac, iPad and Android.

I've tested it with another laptop running Carolina and with an Android tablet, it works fine for file,
folder and text transfer, you need only drag n drop on the application window to send.

this requires QT to work, only tested with Carolina, if it proves to be any good I'll add it to the repo, some feed back would be welcome.

Hi Goeffrey.

I am aware of Dukto. But, its has a major flaw. Security and its not a universal tool.

SAMBA is a much better alternative. With @01Micko's PET's implementation, he has created a "SAMBA for Dummies" (my words) approach for its use. The significance is that it is mature, stable, and offers security if chosen. And users do NOT have to install anything on ANY LAN PC for its use. Containing all of the SMB protocols, it will interact with any old/modern device which talks to Microsoft or Apple, as well. Lastly, on my Android, I DID NOT install any app to access data on my PhatSlacko/LightHouse64/Windows PCs or my NAS or my TV to exchange data.

Lastly, SAMBA 4 is smaller, smarter, and stable due its rewrite (and 6 years of testing in a world-wide community).

SAMBA (especially version 4+) may be a better choice; at least the way 01Micko has with his "SAMBA Simple Management" utility built-into his SAMBA V4+ PET(s).

This is provided as information only.

Geoffrey and I are currently working on Carolina-1.1, slowly but surely.

Suspend has never worked on my Desktop with a LAN card so I've modified the sleep.sh script and need some testers and feedback with wired and wireless. It goes in /etc/acpi, and you might want to back the old one up first.

Make sure it's executable and delete /tmp/suspend if it's there first. Use the power button to resume.

Thanks in advance.

I've never been able to get the weather plugin to work in my local, so I've recompiled it and it now works, I tested one against the other and I'm sure the older is at fault, this version now has all the icon themes and locale files, I would appreciate if a few people could test this for me, it should overwrite the existing install.

xfce4-weather-plugin-0.8.3.pet

PS. can anybody please test rg66's sleep timer, I would but the desktop PC I have won't run sleep mode correctly and locks up.

I've never before used a panel plug-in.
This is 'lina-lite-005

There's now a circle at the right end of the task bar, and it says No data available.

Thanks,
Sheldon

Hi Sheldon,

You need to right click that circle at the right end of the task bar, select properties and it should scan for you location, if it shows the wrong town/city then click change and type in your town/city or closest airport/aerodrome , it should find it.

I've tested the weather plugin on my wife's laptop, all is fine, this has fixed the problem.

Shouldn't be to long now for the release of Carolina 1.1 with bug fixes, updated apps and a few more features, hopefully the ISO won't be much larger than the previous.

Carolina 1.1 is released, for details see the first post.

This release is around 40mb larger due to software updates and added features.
