1. Turning the b43 stuff into a squashfs module won't work because a program needs to be run.

Here's what I did that worked for DebDog Jessie and DebDog Stretch32,
without a save file:
install b43,
create CoW squashfs,
reboot,
configure wlan0 using frisbee,
create another CoW squashfs,
reboot,
now it connects automatically.

2. Because you are running without persistence, every reboot is a clean start, so you need to repeat everything. You do NOT have a save file in play.

Understood.

3. Assuming that installing "b43-fwcutter" from Synaptics works, you must then run the commands
Code:
modprobe -r b43
modprobe b43

Thank you, I will try that. If that works, it's a lot better than the way I've been doing it.

bash: -i: command not found
You are typing the command wrong. The "|" is the pipe symbol.

I did type the pipe symbol.

"bash: -i: command not found"

is the response I got when it typed the command

"dmesg | grep | -i firmware"

I think the second pipe does not belong in there?

Is there a way to boot this using save folder instead of save file?

Please read Page 1 and follow the instructions to get the stretch-live-frugal-install-tool.

OK

6. To install the deb file: Download it. Rename it and remove the .gz extension on the end. Right-click on the file. Select "Install deb".

Thank you.

Thanks. I'll try that too.

You are typing the command with the "|" in the wrong place.
Code:

How to share a scanner across a network

Experienced Linux users are familiar with the concept of sharing a local printer across their network. Read here for details. But the SANE scanning system also has that ability.

Install the package attached below on both the server (the machine with the scanner) and the client. PeasyScan is auto-installed as a package dependency.

On the server machine, install the SANE scanner driver as usual. The client machine does NOT need it.

Look for Scanner Share in the Graphic menu and run it on both machines. Follow the steps.

The server keeps its network configuration in the file /etc/sane.d/saned.conf. It should have a line like:
Code:
192.168.2.0/24

The client uses the file /etc/sane.d/net.conf. It should have a line containing the server's address:
Code:
192.168.2.10

Make sure that the client's /etc/sane.d/dll.conf file has the "net" line at the top.

Once the system is running, the client can scan with PeasyScan as if the unit was connected directly to their machine.

How to add Puppy/Dog installs to a bigboy Linux setup

Once a bigboy Linux like Ubuntu or Mint has been installed, particularly on a UEFI system, it is often simpler to let its GRUB2 bootloader manage the boot process. Instead of trying to install Grub4Dos or your own UEFI bootloader, just add a G4D-type menu to the main grub.cfg. The following instructions will vary with each distro.

Let's assume that your Puppy frugal installs are on partition sda5 and there is a menu.lst file at the start of that partition. Remember that G4D numbers the partitions starting at 0 and GRUB2 starts at 1.

Boot the bigboy Linux and locate the file /etc/grub.d/40_custom. Open it in a text editor as the root user. This will involve launching a terminal and running something like:
Code:
sudo gedit 40_custom

Add this code:
Code:
menuentry "Various Puppies on Partition sda5" {
set root=(hd0,5)
legacy_configfile /menu.lst
}

Now modify the Linux boot sequence to display a menu. Open the file /etc/default/grub as the root user.

At the top, add/modify lines like the following:
Code:
GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=menu
GRUB_TIMEOUT=10

Run the command:
Code:
sudo update-grub

Do a cold reboot.

I got Debian Stretch32 live (starter kit) WiFi working on my Dell Inspiron 1525 this morning. Thanks rcrsn51 for patiently helping.

Photo Cropper digital photo tool

To print out a digital photo, you must first crop it to a 4:6 aspect ratio that matches the paper. Various graphics toolkits will do this, but they can have a steep learning curve.

Photo Cropper has a two-step procedure. It uses Viewnior to do an approximate crop (click Help for instructions), then trims that image to the exact 4:6 ratio.

The dependencies are viewnior, netpbm, peasyprint and peasyscale. Look for Photo Cropper in the Graphics menu.

Remove the fake .gz extension.
