Here we are a lot, on the Carolina boat. I feel alone on new version greyhound by buckaroo, a lonesome passenger.
makagiga-5.8 added by geoffrey is really nice to do list.
Preparing video : set the audiomixer in the menu multimedia : nothing is activated

ah version Lina007 has just resized my linasave, Greyhound version failed to resize greysave, that is the reason why i changed for older lina0007 (new for me, never had this Carolina at home before, only Saluki)
Saving to my pendrive is strangely slow. Pendrive can be the cause.. but i will transfer Lina007 to a different one to check if linasave still so slow.

Subject description: recommended scanner software for carolina
 

Hi Carolinians,

I was away for a few years, now my knowledge of carolina is rusty. Could use some help. I am trying to revive an old Asus eee 901. Carolina works great. But I would like to add the ability to use a scanner, is there a version of simplescan http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=59298 which works for Carolina? if not, what is the most sutable alternative?

and: how do I turn of system sounds, like the loud BEEP which Carolina produces when I make a typo.

thanks in advance for usable answers!

That's the printer scanner sfs I've always used, comes with xsane I believe. Haven't needed to scan for some time, but that's what I used.

To disable sound: you may try the following command:

modprobe -r pcspkr

That worked for me in most of the old puppies. Hope this will fix your issue.

Project developers: Geoffrey, elroy, and rg66.

Carolina is a fork of the Saluki project. Saluki is a woof-build based on Racy 5.2 with Xfce. The suggested target hardware are computers less than 6 years old. It should run reasonably fast on older machines and netbooks, but Xfce does need a bit more ram and cpu than the standard ROX/Jwm puppy - probably at least 512MB of ram and 1GHz CPU for decent performance.


So by 6 years old are we talking 2008 or 2011?

By looking at the specs you give I think we're talking 2008.

The first post was on the 05 Oct 2012, so probably computers from around 2007 onward would be close.

Happy that Carolina still at the top. My computer was born 2012. When we use old (not obsolete) Puppies, often helpers have gone to newer ones,
Carolina VIPs still here, i enjoy that..
Nota : for french speaking people, our expert Medor answer all question about Puppies 4.3.1 and 4.3.6. God bless him Exclamation

It's a nice piece of work - unfortunately, the main language is French. @Pelo, before you step in and tell me the language can be changed to English - it cannot; that is, only in part - believe me, I've tried. Sadly, my language skills, minimal as they may be, and 'the pen of my aunt' have now dried up Crying or Very sad after many decades of abandonment. Wink Laughing

fossil, don't worry, you tried our french Toutou 4.3.6. that was a great step towards our european Puppies. Congratulations. Sure for Puppy Linux it was easier to enter USA. Language is a border. a wall.
Puppy is a way to practice my english and my spanish... much than to learn Linux Exclamation
We are loosing our ambassadors,as ASRI, who was able to ask questions on English forum and translate them to his pupils, and teachers too.
Carolina is still used by Medor, our french Linux expert. (i believe)
Me, Pelo, understand quite well written English sentences, so i can use Puppy Linux, even not translated.

Kudos to the developers of this beautiful and highly functional Puppy.

PostPosted: Thu 22 Jun 2017, 10:27    Post subject: Newest firefox may not run, try Palemoon  

Hi ragaman,

I'm not sure 8Geee's is the newest firefox. Its only two months old and being the esr version its version numbering differs from the other version. The link to it is here: https://archive.org/download/firefox-45.8.0esr but see his post following it.

Perhaps someone else can find a newer version. However, I'm not sure whether any recent version of firefox will run under Carolina. Webbrowsers look to the operating system for graphic libraries and firefox (all current browsers AFAIK) keep upping their requirement of the minimum/newest graphic libraries required to work at all. The graphic libraries battleshooter provided for Carolina are already two or more years old.

I can only think of three responses to that problem. Use an older browser (with security risks and, increasingly, the inability to properly display webpgages or even access them); use a newer operating system with its newer graphic libraries -- not your desire; or use a specially constructed web-browser which itself includes the necessary graphic libraries. The only web-browser I am aware of which does that is Watchdog's build of Palemoon. You'll find it here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=948200#948200

A "light" version of firefox also ran under Carolina. See here and its links, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=939772#939772. But it is older than Watchdog's Palemoon. Both Palemoon and Light are firefox "clones", and can use many of firefox's addons. Under Carolina Light required a library for which I provided a pet at the above link. Palemoon may require it as well.

I use Carolina VG for work. I have just in the past week been getting the warning from Firefox ESR that it will no longer be updated. Chromium works up until version 49.

I downloaded Slimjet and it runs without too much trouble. I had to make a basic script to make it run without sandboxing which was fairly trivial.
