that is what I wonder about too.

Should I stay or should I go?
Stay using Lupu 528-005
or upgrade to latest Lupu 5286?

Or should I follow the recommendation
of Barry Kauler and opt for latest Slacko?

or some other Puppy variant?

Why I stay with Lupu 528-005?
I have put it's Cache on /Home
and it's .mozilla on /Home
and if I get a new Puppy with Firefox
would it not make a mess of my beloved set up
of all the other programs I am so used to.

I would have to start all over with Viewnior
and Geeque and all the other programs
and it took me months to set them up
and I have no clue how to do that again.

That is why I stay with the older version of Lupu.

Yes, nooby.

Stay, don't move.

Everything, everyone is moving forward, forward, forward; newer, newer, newer.

I think it's Time to stay and to keep things.

To move sucks, to stay is pretty cool.

We are all moving too much and too many. Not only personally, but also globally by moving products all over and around the world - except: Human Rights.

Human Rights should be the one and only product, that should be moved all over and around the world - at least for one or two decades, I think.

So, keep staying!

Slacko is astoundingly well supported compared to most other distributions, even Precise is not close to Slacko.

That said, I would like to see more Puppy distributions robustly support yum and apt-get out of box. Much as I like the SFS and PET distribution mechanisms, a tiny fraction of Linux packages are ever re-packaged as PETs.

PostPosted: Tue 24 Jun 2014, 09:06    Post_subject: Bluetooth moue  

Hi,

Can anybody introduce me to a puppy that bluetooth works out of the box? The reason I ask this is because I have a bluetooth mouse and I don't know how to get bluetooth working even after reading several pages.

Thanks

I have found a puppy that has bluetooth and it works with my bluetooth mouse. Thanks to CsipeszPup!

Precise 5.7.1 retro "CsipeszPup" released

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=93679

The bluetooth.sfs that csipesz provided also worked with his lupu xp. Nice!

But I tried bluetooth.sfs with precise puppy xfce based and it doesn't work unfortunately. The taskbar disappears in xfce when bluetooth.sfs is loaded.

Anyway, it is so good to know that I don't have to turn to full ubuntu linux to get a linux that has bluetooth function.

Thanks for the tip. I'm using csipesz now and yes, it does look good.
