Hi, all.

Can someone tell me what the wireless network tool is in SlimPup and if it will connect to WEP-protected wi-fi as well as WAP-protected wi-fi?

I have Puppeee-4.4 on an Asus eeePC 1000HA, and Pwireless2 will not take WEP passwords, so I'm looking for another Puppy distro to replace it with.

Thanks!

Mike

Hi,
Yes, it does support WEP. I bet Puppeee could do it if you input the password differently.
To use WEP on Puppy, you usually have to input the password in HEX (not ASCII) or type "s:" before the password.

Hi, Sheepy.

Pwireless2 in Puppeee won't accept any passwords. I've tried using HEX but it didn't help. I'll try putting the s in front, but I doubt it will make any difference. There's just something wrong with this version of Pwireless2. Plus I think it was written before the WPA2 encryption protocol that's become standard for wi-fi, so it isn't much use any more.

Cheers.

Mike

new user here on an EeePC, running live from usb.

1) I've added the battery monitor script, but my desktop BATT monitor still appears blank, however, when I look in System Information I can see detailed battery properties (including a percentage remaining charge).

2) I'm finding the window minimize, maximize, close buttons far too small

3) I downloaded pupclockset .pet and installed it, however, when I select the change clock format option in the control panel nothing happens. I'm not sure how to get pupclockset to work.

4) I'd like to change the touchpad setting to mirror the default ones on precise puppy, but I'm unable to change the acceleration to .0362 (it maxes out at a lesser value)

5) When minimizing apps there is no taskbar so they disappear. I see alt-tab works to navigate, but is there another way to access these apps?

6) At the end of my sessions, I see they are being saved automatically. However, I was wondering how I can save separate sessions with different filenames. Also, if given the choice, how do I know how much space to tell the session saver to use (I guess 512mb is recommended there).

THANK YOU - despite these newb issues, I really like the simplicity of this OS
