PostPosted: Thu 20 Feb 2014, 02:58    Post_subject: success with kde but none with cinnamon
Sub_title: cinnamon no icons
 

Hello just installed cinnamon 1.6-v3 on lxpup 13.01 full. However, when I launch the desktop background comes up but no icons or anything else.
I have read on the net that if I could access dconf that I could navigate to a page that has a setting to show icons. However, even though this is installed, I don't seem to be able to call it up. I am using an old HP desktop single core intel with 4 gig, a great xp machine and even better puppylinux - lxpup machine.

Thanks for any help you might give,
Cheers,
Vito

Sub_title: I WANT it...
 

I think i'm running 14.03? anyway, I LIKE the MATE desktop/whatever thing Smile
Can I put that on here? maybe toggle back n forth while I decide?

additionally, LxPup saved my butt MANY times in my learning of linux. I lost XP on the other netbook and installed Mint 17 on it but still favor Pup. I like how easy it is to change gamma values and alter color. Everyone on Mint is VERY PINK and I can find no way to alter this even with this full whizbang two kitchen sink distro. Disappointing really. I do with I could get a better image viewer on Pup tho, even Geeqie is sadly lacking. I like Caja on MATE MUCH better than PCfileMan. Rox is just way too confusing with all that pin stuff.
ALL PROPS to jege69(sp) and peejay and mick01 !!!! keep up the good work. I think being #10 on distroW is not so bad. Dunno what it is now, that's from an old post. LxPup is very easy for a newb to get around in. Don't much like PPM tho. Cannot figure out how to use the terminal at ALL with the # instead of $ and sudo apt-get thang. I like the package manager in MintMATE because I can cruise around in it looking for stuff. PPM I click on anything and I'm commited, it begins to the DL/install thing, often following thru even AFTER I've hit the CANCEL button. And sometimes it says successful install and while checking things ANOTHER window pops up saying i've asked to install some thing that i did NOT, and it puts THAT in too. ACK!!!! dun like that at ALL. But all in all I'm stuck on LxPup at this point. I really think it's got great potential. Thinkin about buying some cheap used netbooks and installing several variants to play with. Or at least getting many more USB sticks to put more versions on.

One thing...a 2 gig save file takes like 4 minutes to save and shut down. Any way I can get around this? I'm reluctant to put it ON the HD with XP after losing my other XP. I HAVE to have at least one XP machine.

Hi XP-refugee,

If you are running the LxPup 14.03, this is noth the right thread to pose your question. I must admit it is a bit confusing.

The thread you need is :

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=89270

The confusion starts becuase this thread, and early version of LxPup, is based on Slackware 14. But the software was build in 2013. The author of the software Jeyj69 is no longer with us. But his work was carried on by PeeBee in a different thread.

The new thread I am refering you to is also based on Slackware 14, but build in 2014 (march). Hence LxPup 14.03. And the athor is PeeBee...

Regards,

Volhout
