I can't print from Mozilla. I can print to a file and then print the file from Xpdq. (I've got a postscript printer) Anybody able to print?

Ok, I 've had a chance to test 2.13beta a little more and have found the following unreported bugs (running with pfix=RAM):

1. Installing Puppy to 'USB Flash drive' using Puppy Univ. Installer. Using 'sda1: vfat, size 122.4 MiB'. I chose 'sys-nopart.mbr' like usual. Then I get to the menu where I chose 'Syslinux', also like usual, click 'OK' and the next thing that happens is the CD drawer opens (with the 2.13beta CD)! Nothing is written to the flash drive. I've tried this with two different drives that have worked before.

2. Menu -> Control Panel -> Top doesn't work - nothing happens. Executing 'top' in a terminal works fine.

3. Menu -> Internet -> Axel opens menu to insert URL. Add URL then click 'OK' - Axel disappears. Check with KP - no such process. Axel works fine from CLI.

4. Clicking in ROX on a .log file doesn't have a run action. Used to open the file in the default editor.

Barry is not keeping mrxvt, but, if you want to make your top entry in /root/.jwmrc like this. than it will works from the menu. It's showing rxvt at the time and is an oversight.

<Program label="Top view running processes" icon="mini-run.xpm">mrxvt -e top</Program>

Thanks Kal. Yes, that works.

I discovered that rxvt (which is now a wrapper for mrxvt) balks at the '-n' switch in the line
Quote:
rxvt -font 7x14 -bg "#c0c0c0" -fg black -T Top -n Top -e top

The line works when I remove it.

More feedback on the problem with axel. Running the line from .jwmrc in mrxvt, this is what I get:
Quote:
# puppydownload http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pupget_packages-1/afpl_ghostscript-8.54.tar.gz
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pupget_packages-1/afpl_ghostscript-8.54.tar.gz
/root/: directory
mrxvt: bad option "Axel"
mrxvt: bad option "download"
mrxvt: bad option "accelerator"
mrxvt: Use -h, -help or --help to get help
#

Also an inconsistency between rxvt and mrxvt it seems.

More feedback on the Puppy Univ. Installer bug:

Seems like another rxvt/mrxvt problem. See 'puppyinstaller' line 137:
Quote:
rxvt -bg "pink" -title "Puppy Universal Installer" -geometry 80x25 -e /tmp/fixusb.sh

Just running part of that line in mrxvt shows:
Quote:
# rxvt -bg "pink" -title "Puppy Universal Installer" -geometry 80x25
mrxvt: bad option "Universal"
mrxvt: bad option "Installer"
mrxvt: Use -h, -help or --help to get help
#

Conclusion so far: if Barry is going to use Urxvt instead of Mrxvt, please make sure the switches are compatible with Rxvt or many scripts will be broken Sad

I think I'll just go back to rxvt.

The thing is, rxvt is so small, that if we decide that we want any other
then it could be added as well as, rather than a replacement.

Has anyone tested the puppy universal installer? I have tried with 2.12 and 2.13 and it seems broken. Sometimes it ejects the puppy CD, sometimes just before creating the USB bootable disc, the application just closes.

In Muppy, I replaced rxvt with a wrapper to run xterm.
It should take care of the issue Pakt mentions:

/usr/bin/rxvt

Code:
#!/usr/bin/puppybasic

  i=3
  args=""
  while command(i) !=""
  a=command(i)
  if instr(a," ") then
    a="\"" & a & "\""
  end if
  args &= a & " "
  i+=1
  wend
  args=trim(args)

'print args


args = replace(args,  "--geometry" , "-geometry" )


'print args

shell("exec /usr/bin/rxvt-xterm/rxvt " & args)


You must put "your" rxvt-binary in the last comand.

I just deleted the rxvt wrapper in pup_213.sfs and replaced it with an rxvt binary from an earlier Puppy using Pizzasgood's Edit-SFS Wink

Could the et131x Agere ethernet driver be complied into the kernel as a module? I think it is a kernel config option now?

Hmm, I wonder if we should change the "drives" icon on the desktop to use Pmount, as MUT is not really being maintained.
In Pmount, a ROX window open on a partition that is to be unmounted is first closed before the unmount.


A lot of people like MUT. As long as it is there on the menu, they are accommodated. IMHO we have to use as default what works and is known to work. In the case of the Rox update, it makes sense to change to Pmount as default desktop icon. I never use pmount because MUT is the default and has worked for me (up to now).

Cool

PostPosted: Thu 28 Dec 2006, 04:42    Post_subject: freezing ROX in /proc and icon& background dissapear  

about ROX 2.5 bug: freeze on /proc, with thumbnails on, after some research it appears to me it is not an ROX bug! in /proc directory only "kmsg" file cannot be open (no cat,more...) and cannot be copy part of it with "dd if=/proc/kmsg... so it is obvious it cannot be accessed (opened) in a normal way. There was a discussion in forum how is recognized the file type in windows (after the name of file extension ) and in linux (after rhe first bytes in file ,an sort of magic number, use of 'file' command ) and the old ROX used the windows style after the file extension name .
It seems that new ROX 2.5 is upgrade to recognize the file type in linux manner by opening and reading the beginning of file , and because '/proc/kmsg' cannot be opened it is waiting (like dd if=/proc/kmsg..)in an endless loop which freeze ROX....So until now evrything is ok with ROX (not with /proc/kmsg), there is another little bug in it (no related with kmsg): if you try to 'kill' ANY rox windows (from right klick on menubar) it will kill also the background ROX the pinboard with descktop background image and descktop icons too...
Somebody should verify my theory...who knew ROX how works internally....
"cat /proc/kmsg" and "dd if=/proc/kmsg..." are stucked but "file /proc/kmsg" reports "/proc/kmsg: empty" interesting!

about MUT/Pmount both are ok, am used with MUT you can manually unmount SWAP too...
