Multiple monitors - External monitor.

TEST: upupbb-18.05+2

Laptop with external HDMI monitor.

When I boot, I go in the multi monitor support,
select: disconnect laptop monitor
click: APPLY
Perfect my hdmi monitor is now the only monitor
But I can NOT save this, nor go in the advanced tab.

After 10 sec folds back to dual monitor view.

I just experienced that issue this morning doing a new frugal-install.

System>Monitor Settings

I got around it by copying "LXRandR autostart" from another pup and pasting it in "/root/.config/autostart" in bionic.

Other than that this pup is solid, imho.

Good to know, but fix must be in the iso

I signal that .opus, .ogg, .webp have no file association, I presume webm as well.

in remasterpup2 to get the SFS copied over.

Woof-CE change request #1207 initiated on github

Since I'm currently working on a new Remaster Suite I had again a look at the remasterpup2.

It doesn't make sense, to add ${ADRVSFS} ${FDRVSFS} ${YDRVSFS} to the related line, as the remasterpup2 doesn't include code to rebuild the adrv, fdrv and ydrv sfs modules. Code is existing only for the zdrv sfs module. So, after doing a remaster using remasterpup2 with those sfs modules loaded, they are going to be installed into the main sfs module of a puppy.

Needs to have another Woof-CE change request...
...but would make much more sense imho

Meanwhile an old feature from my LazY Puppy 2.0.2-005 version came to mind. It could be very very useful to have options at the boot prompt to choose to load or not to load those adrv, fdrv and ydrv sfs modules. I had established this feature in my LazY Puppy since I remastered without to create the zdrv sfs module and used it afterwards for a LazY Puppy Extension sfs module, which I could choose to load or not to load.

Hi - quite a way - lots of commits since d2fe... on 9 May to 5350.... on 22 May

Master and testing should be roughly in step at the moment....but may diverge in the future....

PostPosted: Thu 24 May 2018, 20:54    Post subject: Boot Manager not loading sfs
Subject description: LxPupSc also affected
 

G'day peebee,

Sorry for such a brief report Sad but I could only get as far as trying to load my multi-app sfs before having to stop with the latest BionicPup.

I also fell at the same hurdle in your latest LxPupSc so it may be a woof 'thing'?

In the terminal, for both Pups, I got the messages as per the screenshots.

I'll try running both these new Pups with the most recent savefiles from their immediate precedents just in case that gets around this problem.

Drive icon display sluggishness
I think the Bionic Pup loads/displays my multitude of partition icons a bit faster than the LxSc Pup - not being able to load my apps meant I could better check this and now assume drive icon slowness is not much affected by my numerous apps also being boot-loaded.

David S.

Later.....
Ran bionic18.05+3 with savefile from 18.05+2; sfs apps appear as per old savefile (screenshot) but trying to load a new sfs with the bootmanager of 18.05+3 fails.

How much time is it taking to have all partitions show on the desktop?

With that many partitions and Pmount having to search each one for the needed info, it should take some time to display all.

I have 19 partitions on 4 different drives.
You can first see the desktop and watch each partition show as it is identified. Does take a little time to complete.
Seems like a normal thing to me.

PostPosted: Sat 26 May 2018, 21:36    Post subject: Loading (too) many partitions & app icons
Subject description: Life in the slow lane is relaxing.
 

G'day bigpup,

So I'm not alone with having created too many partitions and pinboard icons Very Happy .

I did think of doing a phone-video of my Pups' booting & loading process but my phone has only so much memory Sad .

I'm not suggesting a boot-time race - slower, if not slowest wins, of course.

I have also thought of reducing the number of my Full Pup partitions as I don't use them much any more - only when I backup my Frugal partitions which I can't do from within that partition. It's easier than using a Live-CD.
But I've still plenty of space in my data partitions so I'm not under hard-drive storage pressure yet.

With my indulgent set-up, I have a couple of things I'd like to try to fix the incomplete boot:

1) a script to do the 'restart-X' directly from the pinboard - I have to go via a menu at present. I have been kindly sent scripts to restart pwidgets and the pinboard but these don't update the right-click pop-out menu.

2) the location of the pinboard file that lists where everything is (which apps and where they're placed) - so I could maybe save time with setting up each new Pup since I load the same few sfs and modules but it takes a bit of time dragging them from /usr/share/applications onto the pinboard; maybe woodenshoe-wi's modified Rox could add this, if it's possible?

So your 'normal thing' is pretty much mine too Wink .

David S.
