@FatBeard
Instead of APT use Puppy Package Manager (PPM) or Quickpet. Make sure to
update PPM.

PostPosted: Sat 02 Feb 2019, 11:00    Post subject: No Apt = Puppy Package Manager or try Pkg  

Xenialpup is not a cut-down version of Xenial Xerus. It is built using some of the latter's binaries, making it 'binary compatible' --that is, occasionally with a great deal of searching* applications can be installed or SFSes to be loaded and unloaded from the packages stored on Ubuntu's repositories. Menu>Setup>Puppy Package Manager provides direct access to those repositories. Very often, obtaining the necessary files is "one-stop shopping".

But, if you really want a package manager which works like apt, try Pkg, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=985531#985531. Properly first announced in the "Cutting Edge" Section, scottman's creation has quickly advanced to the point that it is now included in Bionicpup64 and made use of in some instances to provide applications which PPM isn't able to OOTB.

* Puppies do not employ the entire framework used by the distro-version they are binary compatible with. Under Xenial Xerus, apt and synaptic do not always identify as necessary dependencies components which a deb creator took for granted or overlooked because it was assumed to be present in the OS as part of its frame-work. Puppy Package Manager can only finds components Ubuntu devs identified as dependencies. Consequently, it is likely that apt would be just as unsuccessful as Puppy Package Manager in automatically finding and downloading ALL components actually necessary for an application to function OOTB.

After PPM has found and installed an application and the dependencies it knows about, if an application doesn't function, or fully function, you can determine what components were missing by finding the application's binary and running List Dynamic Dependencies via Puppy's Right-Click Menu or Menu>System>List Dynamic Dependencies. They can be obtained via PPM or your web-browser.

Hi, can someone say if it is possible to install any package, so I can have the brightness of the display even darker than the minimum of "1" which is possible with xbacklight? I've tried instead of 1, "0.more numbers/digits" or ".more numbers/digits" but in all those cases the display goes dark at all. Thank you.

Try this.
menu>Setup>Screen/Graphics Wizard>Monitor Gamma Calibration
Adjust each color the same.
You can go negative numbers here.

Xenialpup 7.5 full install seems to have problem.

I just helped someone get wifi connection in Xenialpup 7.5
They needed the atheros kernel modules pet to get drivers for their Atheros hardware.
Installed the pet in their Xenialpup 7.5 full install.
The wifi hardware still did not show in network connection tools. (any of them)

I suggested to try a frugal install of Xenialpup 7.5
Installed the atheros kernel modules pet.
Their atheros hardware was setup and wifi connection setup with no problem.

Please release an updated Xenialpup 7.5 iso with the Atheros stuff in it.

@bigpup - kernel is a problem too. Some newer ath10k modules & firmware need minimum 4.14.x kernel. Early last year, all that was needed was 4.10.x, such is the progress of wireless. Reminds me of M$ 'progress'. And maybe we should have Normal & Traditional installs (ilo Frugal & Full).
Afterthought: perhaps a ydrv could be made with new drivers/firmware as an interim, & a zdrv/vmlinuz kernel update.

If you are not aware of it, the new iso with the adrv is not downloadable at ibiblio. At least for me.

PostPosted: Mon 11 Mar 2019, 23:37    Post subject: Xenialpup 7.5 32bit
Subject description: Palemoon Updater does not work
 

.
Hello.

Just downloaded XenialPup 7.5 32bit.

Palemoon is not latest version so I tried to use the "Palemoon Updater" item in the "internet" menu.

No joy, see attached images.

Is this a known bug? Is there a fix?

Thank you.

PS: I'm hardwired to my router, My internet connection is working fine. I am using XenialPup and Palemoon to post this.

That worked. Thank you.

This thread -- Xenialpup CE 7.5 / 25 Nov 2017 -- has 779 posts.

I could not find a list anywhere in this thread of the known issues and fixes for the "xenialpup-7.5-uefi.iso 2019-Feb-24 11:51:38 324.7M" download,

and I could not figure out how to search all 779 posts in this thread to find a solution to the specific problem I was seeking help for.

Is there a way for a newcomer like me to "help myself" answer my questions? I'd hate to wear out my welcome by constantly posting questions that have already been answered because I can't search the thread for answers that are already posted.
