slimjet_lxsc_spot_17.0.3.0.sfs updated to slimjet_lxsc_spot_18.0.2.0.sfs, running under latest LxPupSc. Shared Spot directory is on the EXT2 data partition with a symlink to it from each pup on the computer. Unload one SFS, load new one. Didn't skip a beat.

Edit: Ditto for LxArtfulPup, ArtfulPup and uPupBB on both the core 2 duo laptops and the i5 sandy bridge laptops.

Later: Spoke too soon!! Using Slimjet 18.0.2.0 on the i5. Looking at monitor specs/reviews on amazon, cnet, several other sites. LOTS of page failures! Snap or aw shucks Confused Ebay, weather, several forums, news and economic sites had all been fine all day. Seems confined to the ad ridden commercials and occurs with or without the use of adblock plus. Identical behavior on the core 2 duo and under LxPupSc and uPupBB. Went back to 17.0.3.0 and no failures. When a failure occurs, the pages seemed to load initially and then failed when an ad or slider tried to load. It never crashed Slimjet but those particular pages were not usable. So for now it's still 17.0.3.0 as the workhorse. Alas.

Thanks,

Subject description: Very nice - a couple of minor things
 

G'day peebee,

I made a manual frugal from the iso (LxPupSc-18.04T-k64) on my old HP Smallform desktop. It took me a while to realise this is suitable for 'old-dog' 32-bitters like me Smile .

I switched to the 'devil-I-know' JWM and added my usual applications in the form of my many pets composed of symlinks to my boot-mounted data partition. I then dragged each .desktop file to the pinboard for quick access (screenshot).

Some apps needed extra libs which I had already made as 'missing-lib' pets from trying my apps in earlier Slacko Pups.

My apps all work in this LxPupSc ... except the inkgui package that says it cannot find my networked printer (screenshot). Most other Pups (maybe not other Slackos - I haven't checked recently) have no problem with this very handy printer ink level app. The printer prints and its scanner scans so I'm puzzled (as usual).

I noticed my (27) drive icons are very, very slow to appear in turn across the bottom of the pinboard (check screenshot). Is there an option to say, only display mounted partitions, if this slowness is now unavoidable? Previous Pups seem not as slow.

Likewise, the 'Places' panel when I go to 'Open File' have all my partitions when all I need are the mounted partitions and /root (screenshot). Again some other Pups are free of this panel clutter. It is really my problem with so many partitions but I don't still know how to get rid of these unnecessary 'Places'.

My usual thanks for all your Puppies - great fun for me as a hooked user/addict.

Got slimjet sorted to my satisfaction for now, see 3 posts up. The site failures were due to the libffmpeg.so in the package (11.3MB, source?). I first built an 18.0.1.0 SFS using OscarTalks SFS as a base, adding libs for slackware and modifying the /usr/bin files to run-as-spot with --user-data-dir=/root/spot/. Runs fine, no failures. Then I swapped the libffmpeg.so from a fresh slimjet 18.0.2.0 download into peebees 18.0.2.0 package. No failures. Then I built an SFS from a fresh slimjet 18.0.3.0 download, keeping their libffmpeg.so and adding only libs needed for LxPupSc and the std. /usrbin files for run-as-spot. It is running fine, no failures to date on the sites that were problematic. I'll continue using that one but so far so good. I haven't played with any other libffmpegs. An aside, with all the libs in /opt/slimjet it seems to pick them up ok without the
Code:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/slimjet:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
line in /usr/bin/slimjet. Runs in LxPupSc and no nags about libs anyway when run from terminal.

Cheers,

Hi peebee,
Your slimjet_lxsc_spot_18.0.3.0.sfs downloaded and briefly checked (in uPupBB right now). Running fine on all sites now. Given what I do, I don't need the extra codecs but one of my users does so It's good to have them in overall.

Edit: Also checked in the current LxPupSc.

Thanks,
