Yes, "all the desktop icons dissapear". Lobster was talking about icons, not windows disappearing.

The icons are a part of Rox. If all of Rox is killed, then so are the icons.
rox -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin will revive the desktop with the new Rox.

In 2.12, I noticed that sometimes when I close a window the icons on the desktop all disappear for a moment, but they have always come back on their own. I hadn't realized it isn't supposed to do that. Laughing

Rox is not starting on a reboot for me. Something wrong in .xinitrc, so I changed it out for 2.12's .xinitrc and it's all right for now. I think Pizzagood is right.

Okay, I'll be testing the Xorg Wizard on a wider range of hardware,
particularly old PCs, over the next few days.
I have been away from home, and at home I have kitchen table stacked
high with old PCs!

Maybe this is just disabled for beta, but if you put the pup_213.sfs file on the same partition as the pup_save.2fs file, Pupppy still loads the pup_213.sfs from CD when booting.

PostPosted: Mon 25 Dec 2006, 02:31    Post subject: Rox icons disappearing  

First off let me say 2.13beta is awesome!!!, It is the best boot up so far, the only thing I had to do was run the network wizard and I was up on the internet.
As far as the MTU removing the desktop when you unmount, I had never seen that before so I experimented, I have always closed the window before I unmounted a drive and never had that problem, but sure as can be if I leave the window open and unmount with MTU then everything does disappear, with Pmount it works fine with or without the window closed. I guess sense I always closed the window first I never seen that bug in 2.12.

One last thing I am so glad we have updated ROX, I have always had to download the dotpup with each new version now it's all set to go, great job on the new version everyone, I will test more over the next few days.

Kal, I can't reproduce that.
Does that happen with a pristine 2.13?

from ROX clicking an /proc directory simply freeze the rox windows, on /sys works fine, the freezed rox windows can be killed but desktop icon and background dissapears too. I have 256RAM AMD athlon 1.4Gb........so maybe it's some bug with new ROX not MUT...who knows......uXplore 2 panel works fine with /proc......

Barry, It was a pristine frugal install, no upgrade, with pup_213.sfs, zdrv_212.sfs, dev_213.sfs, pup_save.2fs. in Window 2000 with Fat 32. As soon as I put the original .xinitrc back in, there was no start of rox. I had been changing backgrounds with Puppybackground and rox backdrop. Must have been a minor fluke with backgrounds. Because now after playing with other things, options in rox, and time pasting, I put the original .xinitrc back in again and all is good. It was repeatable at the time, but not now.
Good Luck, Kal

PostPosted: Mon 25 Dec 2006, 13:25    Post subject: ROX freeze on /proc directory  

it seems it is an ROX 2.5 problem: freezing on /proc directory. I tested on muppy 006 too (not only puppy 2.13beta) based on puppy 2.12 , it has ROX 2.5 an d ROX 1.x, so I switch between them and the old ROX 1.x is working ok on /proc directory ,but ROX 2.5 is freezing on same directory, and of course the desktop items and desktop bakground too have problems..

Same story here with rox 2.5, this problem may be related to what I ran into. I never entered /proc directory in my playing. The dotpup for rox 2.5 did the same on Puppy 2.12, as you.
Good Luck, Kal

PS:
I discovered that if you turn off "show image thumbnails" in ROX-Filer>Options>Thumbnails, that the problem with opening /proc stops. But, of course you don't have thumbnails.

Would you try screen lock please? Both on a pristine 2.13 beta and with my .3fs addons it doesn't work.

The live CD works great... I use the installer to install Puppy on my SATA hardrive.

when this install is booted I get this error message.

Code:
Uncompressing Linux....  OK, booting the  kernel
Bad inittab entry: id:2:initdefault;
Bad inittab entry:  pf::powerwait:/etc/init.d/powerfail start
Bad inittab entry:  pn::powerfailnow:/etc/init.d/powerfail now

So this is the fix needed for MUT? I really like MUT for its nice graphical display. Plus, it's programmed in TCL, so it must be a good companion of HV3 in Puppy.
