Awesome version of puppy as expected, thanks. Two apps that I'd like to see included if possible would be:

VMware player
Comix - http://comix.sourceforge.net/

Question: How do I configure that Icedock thing? Hate the fish Smile

Yeah the fish didn't suit me either. I'm new to Icewm and I read a little about this on the forum somewhere. Maybe it was something on Icewm-ultra?
Arrow To (sort of) rearrange items in the Icedock, point your mouse at the edge or empty area and roll the mouse wheel. (Edit) Click and drag on the handle (narrow top edge) to move the dock along any corner or edge of the screen.

Arrow (Edit) See Mark's great new Icedock Wizard here and the configuration file (/root/.Muppyicedock/template-icedockrc which updates /root/.icedockrc) for additional options, including
layout=vertical|horizontal and placement=topleft|topcenter|topright|leftcenter|rightcenter|bottomleft|bottomcenter|bottomright

Arrow (Edit) To change colors, add and remove the icedock apps use the same Icedock Wizard. Makes it easy to accomplish everything described below and more.

To remove the fish entirely from the dock, click on the Quick Launch Menu (third button on bottom taskbar, after Start and Show Desktop) and click 'edit startup'. That should open ~/.icewm/startup in a text editor. This script is executed by starticewm when IceWM starts. Comment a line as follows:

wmfishtime &
#wmfishtime &

Save the file and restart Icewm

I decided to do the same with
#volume.app &
because I use the smaller wmix volume control instead.

Also in Quick Launch is 'edit weather-app' where you can set your station id for weather indicators to your location. That opens the file /etc/wmweather.conf. Mine is KPSC -- K plus the nearest three letter airport code. Hmm, I wonder if the K is unique to this area or the same throughout the US?

if mrxvt is installed, but there is no rxvt executable, you can easily make a symlink or a wrapper script to run mrxvt when rxvt is executed

#!/bin/sh
exec mrxvt "$@"

Vabene, I'm puzzled.
I tried Muppy006 today on my notebook, and rxvt works.
I chose english and german, with and without the addons, with xvesa and xorg.

So at moment I had only 3 ideas;

1.) CD is broken
2.) you have a graficscarddriver that works incorrect in X.
3.) You use a setting, that makes problems, like an installation on a USB-stick.

I ran it from CD with the boot-option
puppy pfix=ram
So my pup_save.3fs was not used.

I have no idea at moment Sad

Please follow guestToos advice.
rename /usr/bin/rxvt to rxvt-old
Then symlink it:
ln -s /usr/local/bin/mrxvt /usr/bin/rxvt

If mrxvt is in a different location, you must of course use that path.
You can type
which mrxvt
to find out the correct path.

wow
we are getting serious eh!
ok
now is time to start switching my main laptop to puppy as well (my backup desktop and my backup laptop are already on it)
today, while playing with the partition table, i screwed it, and while i can still fix with the backup, i prefer to get rid of ubuntu and get the new muppy! Very Happy

only 3 condition for the complete overhaul of my system:

    first i need good perl support, i MUST be able to run scripts


    second i need my intel 2100 wifi card to WORK, work good with no problems.


    third, while i can have a fat32 partition, i would like to do everything on ntfs, if puppy totally supports it, swap is not an issue, since i already have a swap partition.


so now only my main desktop remains on ubuntu (i need multiuser) and winzoze xp Sad

Mark,

I tried Muppy today. A brilliant demonstration of how and what can be done. I looked for things to discover and use.

Here's my question, and I'm almost embarrassed to ask. Somewhere in there I found a very handsome set of tan or light brown, more or less rectangular, gnome icons that were just right for my desktop. Unfortunately I lost them in a reboot, and cannot remember where I found them:-(
Do you possibly know what I am looking for? Sorry to ask.

Henry

Please disregard the above question, Mark. I went back and sorted it out.

(Actually, they were gray, not brown, anyway Smile

yes, Perl is included.
But not all modules, if a script won't run, please paste the errors.
Then we might try to add them Smile

Subject description: Remaster Script
 

Mark,

Does the recent edition solve the problem I was experiencing with Dougal's latest edition of the remaster script and the probepart issue?

This release looks very sharp. One thing I wanted to point out that is fixable pertains to playing streaming video from sites such as CNN, video.ap.org, etc. Would be nice to have the codecs pre-installed for release 007. From personal experience, this is a bit overwhelming for a newbie. Just a suggestion.

.

yes, that bug should be fixed.
Codecs: I will have a look.
If someone can point me to what needs to be added, I'd be happy Smile

PostPosted: Wed 13 Dec 2006, 14:36    Post subject: Streaming Video  

Mark,

My custom Puppy based on 2.10 supports almost all online streaming video formats using the Firefox mplayer plugin. I'll have to refresh my memory on how I was able to get this to work, but I'll provide you with the details in a few hours. In the meantime, can you create a PSI compatible object for the mplayer browser plugin from the source at http://mplayerplug-in.sourceforge.net ?? That would help. There is also a MediaConnectivity Firefox plug-in you can pre-install at https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/extensions.

EDIT: One of the most critical steps that comes to mind was supplying the Firefox browser with a list of file extensions associated with multimedia formats to be used by gmplayer. I was actually able to get this to work by using another distro's Firefox browser presets, which saved me a good deal of time in defining my own. A bug that I encountered that I still have not overcome is that once the media file finishes playing it would shut down the browser. That needs to be solved, Also, there are some sites that for some reason I can't seem to get the video working, like www.foxnews.com which I've been able to use the mplayer plugin with in the past.
