Hi greengeek, I downloaded Banksy 31 but have found that my bank's website does not like the browser that is in the distro. I installed Pale Moon which I then customised, The Palemoon installer puts Pale Moon in /opt/palemoon. After this I burnt a dvd. The result was that Pale Moon was lost! How can I keep Palemoon? I installed Foxit Reader from a pet and that's fine

Hi Rick,

it may be necessary to move Palemoon into the /opt/b3user directory - during the "personator" process banksy will grab the contents of that directory. The question is whether or not Palemoon will be happy to run from it's new location.

The other option is to use the newer version of banksy called "impersonator". It grabs all of the customisations you have added (like a full remaster)

banksy impersonator is available here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=899307#899307

(The "personator" script grabs only a small subset of customisations, but the "impersonator" script grabs all of your customisations)

EDIT : If you want to stick with the personator version that you have already downloaded there are a couple of other ways to make personator save Palemoon (or other extras) but they are more manual and longwinded so let me now if you want details.
(The "impersonator" version makes it easy and automatically burns all customisations to DVD or to personal sfs as chosen by the user).

Thanks Greengeek, I figured out how to do it. Copied Palemoon and a couple of related directories from root into the B3User folder and burned a new disk. The next time just create links from the 2 other directories to /root. I have a shortcut on the desktop to open palemoon. Foxit installs off the pet and works fine.
The one thing I miss is the ability to print. Can this be done with Banksy?

Yes - but depends on what printer you have and how you set it up.

On my system I use a Brother MFC7820 and I made a pet that installs the printer driver (I followed rcrsn51's instructions and sourced the deb driver package from the brother website) and also sets that printer as the default.

I made a desktop link to that pet and it takes only a couple of seconds to run. I only need to do this for the sessions where I want to print. The rest of the time of course i don't bother installing.

So the first question is - what does it take to install your printer? Do you know what files to put where? Once you have that information you can just graft those files into your personal sfs, or build an install pet as I did.

For my needs and my family's needs I tend to specialise in using a small number of Brother models (best printers ever!) and have made an install script that allows the user to choose which model they want to install.

Other brands/models can be more tricky as some depend on different ghostscript or CUPS versions etc.

If you can work out how to install your printer in Slacko 5.6 then it will work in Personator.

Again - the "easiest" way to force banksy to retain the printer config once you have added your printer is to use the "impersonator" version to grab a snapshot of your customisations, or else manually add what you need into the "personator" process. It sounds as if you have already figured out how to manipulate the Personator process as required.

EDIT : Anyone using Banksy - please remember that it discards all session data at shutdown. If you are working on documents and printing them they will be discarded at shutdown - UNLESS YOU SAVE THEM EXTERNALLY - either online, in an email, or on a storage device (HDD, usb disk etc)

ie: it is ALWAYS the user's responsibility to save what you want to save. There is no savefile.
