Hi zagreb999,

Currently, BusterPup provides the default JWM desktop, plus FbBox (fbpanel/openbox) as an optional environment.

For now, I have no plans (or sufficient time) to integrate a third desktop interface. Even so, thanks for your request. Smile

Great work radky - hoping to appreciate Buster64 in due course, but I just have to ask if anyone else has seen this behavior, and why does it happen? Screenie attached.

I have done this twice with pristine frugal installs of buster-8.0-uefi-k4.19.56, and after creating a save folder and rebooting, these phantom files appear in the root directory, and also in the home directory, as shown. They appear harmless, and gparted reports no problems with my drive, and they only appear in these two levels of the file structure (that I've found).

I am using a Panasonic CF-52 toughbook (mk2, Vista-era) with 4 GB RAM. I am using a Vaseky 800/ 128gb SSD formatted to ext4 and with a 4 gb swap partition.

Performance seems snappy - but I note that my much-preferred ROX filer display of files in list/details with small/automatic icons doesn't persist between windows as you move up and down through the directory tree. Very irritating. Anyhow, are these behaviours linked perhaps? Any ideas welcome - I'll reformat in the meantime with ext3 etc and see if I can ghostBuster that way, cheers

Update on that ghost file creation issue - has now been exorcised, I think. I booted into another puppy and deleted the save folder, rebooted to pristine, created a small 64mb save *file*, rebooted, no ghosts. Rebooted a couple of times, alternating Puppy versions just to be sure, enlarged save file - no reappearances. Deleted save file, rebooted pristine and used a save folder again. This is the second rebooting and no phantom file creation. I think this is solved (for whatever it was).

The non-preserved preference for automatic sized list display in rox-filer is my only gripe now Smile Personally I hate inconsistent sizes between folders - have ticked all the boxes I can find (Save Current Display Settings...;Options> New Window>List View (selected); (+ always inherit options from source window)) - nothing seems to work.Something about this rox-filer from woodenshoe-wi? Aaaargh! Triggered. Otherwise all good Smile

@ Puppyt,

Just a thought. Try changing icon themes.

@mikeslr - thanks for that tip, but I couldn't make a change to keep my preferred automatic-sized list presentation for rox. Swapped between FbBox and JWM and that didn't help - I think, but not sure, that if I could effect a persistent change in ~/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/Settings.xml could be the solution. Leaving it for now, but thanks for the ideas

Hi Puppyt,

I can't reproduce the described behavior in Dpup Stretch or BusterPup. Do you see the phantom files in other file managers such as the included PCManFM or emelFM2, or only when using ROX-Filer?

This behavior is a default preference from legacy FbBox settings of 2017. I can remove this behavior in the next release of BusterPup, but for now please go to '/root/.config/openbox/autostart' and search for 'display_icon_size' (should be line #199) -- delete that line of code. Then, reset your 'Icon View' preferences in ROX-Filer options.

I hope this helps. Smile

Hi radky,
thanks so much for your reply. Well, I was away for 2 days and booting the machine back up, the weird files reappeared - shown in Rox, pcmanfm and mmview in the screenshot. I tried to modify your tip for persistent changes to preferred display type (list) and icon size (automatic or small... whoops - is that a clue? Maybe I should just choose "small" as "automatic" doesn't match up...hmmm).
Unfortunately I have just spotted a biggie in my interpretation - in my very first sentence to this thread I mention "BusterPup64". No such creature - this is 32-bit Sad I got carried away with my own fiction, sorry!

Test build of NetSurf-3.9

Package libgdk-pixbuf2.0-bin was needed and missing.

Also a missing header gio.h
This is supposed to be in the package libglib2.0-dev which according to the package lists is already installed, but maybe some files from it got lost.
EDIT:- That header does seem to be present in the devx so don't know why the compiling process reported it as missing. Maybe because of the missing package mentioned above?

Otherwise looking very good so far, thanks for the work.

@OscarTalks,

I will adjust the devx for the next release of BusterPup.

Thanks Smile
