Wondering what else I might have left out I discovered it was also missing a comma. Call it the "Xerox" syndrom: I used a previous config file to build it, ran thru the alphabet and counted from 0 thru 9, but forgot to check symbols.
When I first read your comment about "xerox" syndrome I did not understand what you meant. I guess you meant just "blindly copying"? Your comment came to mind this week when one of the guys at work posted a link about recent problems with xerox copiers having the opposite problem - the copiers are deliberately (and very carefully) corrupting the characters:

Nasty problem!

Hi oui,

If the following does not help you may wish to re-post your query in the Precise 5.6.1 thread as this Pup is a re-master of that and AFAIK there is nothing in it that would impact upon the ability or inability to rotate the screen.

The only half decent reference to that subject that I can find is this one, which suggests a couple of solutions but backup your savefile before you try!
www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=58138

I tend to prefer simple solutions and with my own copy of MouseCam Pup V6 use the following sfs.
nvidia-glx-319.17-k3.2.44.sfs
That driver provides the rotation facility which obviously the monitor must support.

So if you have a monitor and graphics driver that support this you could in theory rotate any Pup. (I would still backup your savefile before trying it though!)

Hi slackfan,
MouseCam is based on a re-master of Precise Puppy 5.6.1 (k 3.3.44)
The devx for 5.6.1 can be found here: (138.7MB)

Hi ETP

Thank you very much!

It would be important in my eyes the https://archive.org/ would appear on the official download page from Puppy
http://puppylinux.com/download/index.html
as those important step of the Puppy development did be erased on the other official depositories of Puppy and remplaced by the less used Idea new versions!

MouseCam is probably one of the best Puppy derivatives of all the Puppy live and the two goals are unique, help handicaped people and for that use extensively voice commands! It would be terrible that the actualisation of main depositories would made of MouseCam a dead branch as no future development with it would not be possible any more!

I did download 3 files
- devx_precise_5.6.1.sfs
- devx_precise_5.6.1.sfs__devz_precise_5.7.sfs.delta and
- devx_precise_5.6.11.sfs!

estonish is the size difference between evx_precise_5.6.1.sfs and evx_precise_5.6.11.sfs! why?

what is a sfs.delta?

kind regards

Hi slackfan,

It would be a good idea to add archive.org to the list on Barry’s puppylinux.com site.
Perhaps you could PM your suggestion to forum member ALLY who maintains it and to whom we all owe a debt of gratitude.

Delta files are explained here:

MouseCam is really a super production!

Here in action with the kde4.10.1.sfs:

You can see that I am using

- Konqueror, works very well (but seems don't to be able to use full the flashplayer integrated in MouseCam for Chrome. Perhaps is a adequate driver to connect it?)

- KolourPaint making a screenshot

- Dolphin actually using his splitted modus

- and did install Parley on top from Debian Squeezy (needs only 1 dependencie more! it is libkeduvocdocument.so) so it would be possible to start it as supplementary *.sfs (and probably more KDE educational stuff, perhaps also Calligra?)

- kwrite, kate, gwenview, okular did also work...

Hi oui,

I regret that I have never used KDE apps but Google tells me that flash can be problematic:
https://www.google.co.uk/?gws_rd=ssl#q=konqueror+browser+flash
Having first backed up your save-file, you will need to experiment. The search results include a couple of possible solutions but I do not know what impact if any they might have on Chrome’s pepper-flash.
