Ok yes weird... it did not work here either.
I tried saving as another jpg...the same.

I finally opened a working back.jpg, opened the problem one and copied and pasted and saved.... that worked. Here is the working image file. I really do not know what is different about it....

mike

edit... the working one has ppi set to 300dpi yours was 72dpi...though I do not see how that would affect it...

Mike,
Yes, with your image file, all is ok.
All was in the dpi.
Again thank you!

This is exactly what I did.
The problem may come from the configuration of Gimp (I have not changed the default config).

@ mikeb
I tried to create a new image, but it does not work.
I propose to continue the discussion here Message files for the GRUB gfxmenu.

Sub_title: How to tell grub which pupsave file to use?
 

Hi Catdude !
many thanks for this graphical GRUB !
it brings some pleasant stuff in the Puppy daily use !

I've installed grub-gfxboot-for-puppy-updated.tar.gz as my Puppy is running on an ext3 type partition.

So i got it nice running in forum member Pemasu's Wheezy.
I have several pupsave files to be used inside the same «subdir».
Now managing to specify boot parameters inside /grub/menu.lst to load one psecific pupsave file per menu reference ...i went to onsider these forum threads:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=38030
and
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=46107&start=15
as also
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/BootParametersPuppy#hn_Psave
This last one mentions the Psave parameter that is said to solve my question ... but i could'nt get it to work..Sad (i added psave=/wheezysave-myfile.3fs to the kernel line inside /grub/menu.lst)

I also tried some PUPSAVE=/mypupsavefile.3fs inside /grub/menu.lst; as also to edit the init script inside initrd.gz; but without success.

Any idea on how to solve would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Charlie

Ok if you unpack it you will see a languages file and 2 en. files so yes I believe its is meant to support other langyages.

On the other hand I do not have a clue how it is done...perhaps the languages file specifies what there is and then an option appears.

catdude may have a better idea.

Ok, I'll try that.
Thank you.

Hi,
this is surely irrelevant to these lasts posts ... Confused i'm jumping on the opportunity this thread is somewhat brought back to life ... Wink

I'd like to open a specific wheezysave-XXX.3fs, or whatever raringsave-YYY.3fs ...precisesaveXXX.3fs, personal save file using the grub menu ...assuming there are more than one personal save files present together in the "psubdir" folder (of course all being wheezysave-XXX files for example) ? in order to display their names in the graphical grub menu.
Till now, each line of the grub menu is only relevant to the sole personal save file present in the psubdir folder.

This would be similar to what the psave bootparameter was performing when (... in those "good old times") all personal save files were named pupsave-XXX.xfs (see here http://puppylinux.org/wikka/BootParametersPuppy).

I have tried - without success - to adapt the initrd script starting from this thread http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=38030.

Hope being clear enough ...
Any idea ...?

Many thanks in advance
Charlie
