Hi, I have problems with the resolution, no matter which resolution (lower or greater) or video mode I choose, it keeps the same 1600x1200. I tried several times, I restarted X, I started from text mode the config then launched the X server, but still the same - 1600x1200. What is wrong, or what I'm doing wrong? The highest resolution accepted by my 20" is 1680x1250.
Thanks.

You should be able to adjust the actual screen resolution with the "Personalise Settings" app, in the main menu (in System->Steup, I think) ... If not, you can try the xrandr thing in Menu->Desktop .. That should also work..

You could also hit Ctrl-alt-Backspace, and type 'xorgwizard' (no quotes) then hit ENTER, to choose a resolution... Then type 'xwin' to go back into the X desktop..

If that fails, try editing the xorg.conf file in /etc/X11/ (I think) .. Search for where it says 1600x1200, change it to another valid resolution and save it, close it, then restart the desktop ..

If you really can't change resolution for some reason, you can edit the themes in /root/.paloader/themes/ instead, to reduce the height of the main windows ... Any other methods you will have to come up with yourself, as these normally all work fine.. Sorry I can't be of more help.

PostPosted: Tue 29 Jul 2014, 20:22    Post_subject:  Internet Problem
Sub_title: Wifi and ethernet cables don't work.
 

Hello, I have installed Puppy Arcade 11 on a USB drive, but I am not able to connect to the internet via an ethernet cable. Wifi doesn't work either. The machine I am using is a Thinkpad T430.

I have tested Puppy Arcade in vmware and I am using it on a USB drive. The weird thing is that the operating system doesn't detect modems but connects to the internet when I use vmware. But, when I use Puppy Linux on a USB drive, it detects no modem and doesn't connect to the internet anyway.

Please help.

EDIT:

I have an Intel Centrino N-2200 network adapter.
Others on this forum have copied intel centrino files to lib/firmware/

but I don't know how to find that location. I am new to puppy linux.

Inside the folder /usr/local/rom-loader .. That is where the 'source' for the Rom-Loader program is kept.. It is just a bunch of shell scripts..

Try the other kernel versions, the k2.6.25.16 is probably too old for you.

PostPosted: Tue 23 Sep 2014, 10:51    Post_subject:  No Sound on Dell Mini 9  

Thanks for your great work,

I cannot get the sound to work on my Dell Mini 9. I have ran the ALSA wizard to no avail. I have tried Puppy Arcade 11, k2.6.25.16 and Puppy Arcade 11, kernel 2.6.32-smp with no luck. There is no sound (using the Sound Wizard sound test) in either of those versions.

Where should I start? I noticed that the sound does work in the Slack Puppy 5.7 -- if that helps.

Thanks again,
Will
