Have you installed mesa dri yet?

see http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=965414#965414

This https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-install-amdgpu-drivers-on-debian-9-stretch-linux seems to say that there are a few other things to install too.


Thank you very much! It works now.

I forgot to mention it seems that polaris GPUs are having font scaling issues that makes it nearly unreadable.
the Icon fonts are readable because I set it to 28 on the look and feel menu but makes the font of applications like synaptic way too big . the Openbox settings appears to have no effect.

Hi jangelelcangry, for JWM, the only way I know of (and works) is by editing ~/.jwmrc, search for <Font>
and to make 28, change e.g. to:
Code:
   <Font>DejaVu Sans  -28</Font>


Edit: for Synaptic (gtk3 application), edit :
/root/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini, e.g.
Code:
gtk-font-name=Sans 11


Edit2:
@ALL, Recommended to upgrade the kernel, see here;

Well. It seems that the driver fixed all those issues.
I'm impress how smooth the webpages are now.
despite there's some noticeable screen tearing and I cant run YT @4K (DAMN YOU DRM!) It runs really nice and it can run 1080p60 fine.
Thanks dancytron fredx181 for your help and good job fredx181 with this distro.

PostPosted: Wed 31 Jan 2018, 04:00    Post subject: mount of external .DAT files  

Hello,
One of the things that I missed from JessieDog to StretchDog and DebLive stretch was the ability to mount .DAT save files (from other frugal installs) to my current loaded OS.
I used it very much when I was doing migrations or wanted to clone the browser profile folder between installations. The specific association was missing from StretchDogs.

I implemented a simple solution for me by just adding 2 files to 'root/.local/share/applications/'

If you are using another user eg puppy you could copy the files in your /home.puppy/.local/share/applications/

I've attached the created squashfs file that I use. It is compredded in gzip so you must decompress it.

Don't think so, from what I tested in the past, they conflict with each other.

Build them both as Squashfiles -- loaded on the fly?

PostPosted: Sat 24 Mar 2018, 14:53    Post subject: digikam 5.9.0 and Openshot 2.4.1 AppImages in Stretchdog6  

Hi All,

Just wanted to mention that the AppImages of digikam 5.9.0 and Openshot 2.4.1 appear to function under StretchDog64.

This version of digikam appears to be a rather complete photomanagement and editing application.

This version of Openshot adds several new functions, apparently among them a fairly easy way to turn sequential photos into video rather than a slide show.

Haven't done much with them beyond opening the applications without incident.

You can find them here:

https://www.digikam.org/download/

https://www.openshot.org/download/

That would probably work if you didn't want either to become active automatically at boot time. Otherwise, for example, /etc/init.d/frisbee (I think is the script name) is automatically run during boot should frisbee be installed.

Synaptic : update it to get all applications as SSR simplescreenrecorder.
OK with Stretchdog.
NotaBENE Not true with XEnialDOG, which is strange (Version to reinstall)
SSR as an example, wex is available in menu multimedia for screencast and much more.

If your question is: "How to install Simple Screen Recorder on Xenialdog?", it belongs in the XenialDog thread, so answered here (need to add ppa first):

"Synaptic : update it to get all applications as SSR simplescreenrecorder." means that Synaptic once updated will provide SSR
Nothing to do.. no repository to add.

Indeed for Stretch... there's nothing needed to do first, just install SSR.
But for Xenial.... the extra repo needs to be added first, then it's possible to install SSR.

Then the question would be why to use XenialDog when Stretch does not only the same but much better.
Packages for xenial are all included in Stretch
