@Puppyt
@SilverB

For good placing of icons it is a combination of
the icon grid step in Pinboard of Rox-Options (rightclick any icon > ROX-Filer > Options > )
and Spacing of Rox Icons in Puppy Event Manager (Menu > System > )
Look here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=114980&start=36
and here:
https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/woof-CE/issues/1311
for explanation.

Many thanks for the solutions offered.
Turned out to be a spacing thing as was suggested!
I didn't remember that in setting up the icons I used slightly different values moving from Tahrpup to Xenialpup.
Fixed now (I should have got there myself but I'm a bit rusty!)

Subject description: Drive icons overlay
 

Hi:

The same happened to me when I modified the disposition of disk icons on screen. When it happens I only need to restart X and they usually appear in the correcto position.

It only happens when working with icons disposition on screen and modify the distance between them a big space instead of little by little.

Hope It helps.

HAVE A NICE DAY Wink

Hi guys. I have returned to this forum after some time away.
(I used to be Barburo but I had a problem and had to re-register)

I was using Tahtpup 6.0.5.
I decided to give xenial a try. Nice implementation.

One problem with drive icons - not sure if it's been answered but there's 50 + pages to look through and that's a little too much for me.

I use an external USB Connected hard drive with several partitions. My internal drive is also 6 partitions. I use the builtin drive icon manager and display them on the right side vertically.

In Tahrpup there's no problem. In xenial the icons begin to be displayed correctly but it gets confused and overlays multiple dive icons on top of each other.

Has anyone else reported this?

Is there a fix?
( I have applied all of the existing updates through the built-in Pup updater.)
Hardware: older Lenovo think pad

Hello:

I have tried 02 recent pup (Bionicpup and EasyOS 2.5). Both have issues on my laptop. Bionic is not stable while EasyOS is unable to find any wifi Network ......

Frugal installed Xenialpup64 on my 8 GB USB Drive. Laptop is HP Notebook 2540P. Working Outstanding. Same old feelings of puppy linux 431 when I used first time. Smile Just have some minor issue with chrome and chromium browser. Get stuck for couple of seconds. Dont know the actual reason.

So far, an amazing experience.

Thanks for the wonderful work.

Rox uses a different set of icons.
Puppy versions usually only have the basic Rox icon them.
Info on Rox icons here:
http://rox.sourceforge.net/desktop/IconThemes.html
The icons used by Rox are in root/.icons directory.
You change them in Rox->Options->Types->Themes

You probably need to get some icon themes in root/.icons directory to select from.

Thanks for the detailed info:

I used to do that by just installing .pet themes in various puppies till Tahrpup. May be rox settings have been changed in recent puppies.

Thanks again.

Afternoon, all.

Current Nvidia 440.64-x86_64 driver

Just this morning, I've compiled the above driver, and built a .pet package, for the same.

Please note; this is for the STANDARD k4.9.58 kernel.

I'm going to PM Phil, and see if he wants to put it in the repos, but for now, if anybody's interested, you can find it here:-

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1iw6c56sLH7wxnAADga1Lt_HzQAIdoiVd?usp=sharing

This was compiled using the Nvidia .run package from the main Nvidia site, and Shinobar's get-nvidia-1.5.pet package. After loading the devx & kernel source packages, I was pleasantly surprised by how extremely easy the entire process was. Many thanks, Shinobar!





Hope some of you find this useful.


Mike. Wink
