@Sage quicksetup is not truncated. I changed the GUI layouts (tabbed) only to make it more friendly on smaller screens. The original quicksetup is good but not small screen friendly. On executing "processing. please wait" what settings did you set in on quicksetup?

Any ideas or approach to the GUI layout design of quicksetup?

Yes, I see the tabs, but the 'firewall' and one other item (?which? - haven't got regular machine running today) are not shown in tabs. Why the sudden concern for small screens? Nothing set in Quickset that influences anything else, just clicked 'Execute' instead of other option (the one to the left - can't remember - was it 'cancel'? or something like that??).
If it ain't broke..., or One step forward & co. - back to 38.

From the beginning of this thread I have concern for small screens. So I edit almost all puppy core apps to make it small screen friendly. My reference for small screen was 800x600 resolution.

I'm just running regular slacko but there are always ways of removing a bit of size.
like
libicudata.so.51.2 <--22MB
so I compiled an earlier one
libicudata.so.45.1 <--15MB
7MB saving in one compile.
When I packaged it, it compressed to 4M

Well when puppy was basically English Only we didn't have it, but a few years back we moved to a multilingual distro. Its grown a lot in size. If its removed it will/should break different language support. English will probably work but the rest you might have an issue with. Since usually English is default.

There is an huge difference between down-loaders and forum writers. Beware no to delete language utilities (forum spelling tool propose 'hostilities Exclamation ) Merci ttuuxxx (gracias)
Don't delete keyboards !
R38 : check files with tree size. I don't see what significant libs could be deleted for lot of MBs.

Hi mistfire

Tried R37 on a different machine (with UK keyboard) and noticed that the program "keyboard" in the "all" menu does not offer any alternatives from defaul US keyboard.
The "Mouse and keyboard wizard" in the same menu however did the trick.

Just FYI
