PostPosted: Thu 14 Jun 2007, 23:52    Post_subject: Here is one I created for GIMP...  

... I picked up the "fine art" idea elsewhere, but this creation is all mine specifically for Puppy. Woof!

Edit: Some versions of Gimp have it at /usr/share/gimp/2.0/images.

Actions speak louder than words ... and they usually work when words don't!

PostPosted: Thu 20 Sep 2007, 00:27    Post_subject: Patch for xorg.conf  

Hi, when I use 2.15ce, and run the xorgwizard, I cannot manually edit the etc/x11/xorg.conf file using the setup boxes. I select edit and it goes straight to the next screen. It turns out there is a missing program "mp", which is a text editor present on most puppies but not on 2.15ce which the xorgwizard uses for editing the file.

I put a post on explaining this problem which bruce b has kindly supplied a solution for. Currently editing the xorg.conf file is the only way of making a computer with two graphics cards (say an underrated onboard one with an extra more powerful pci one) work. Xorgwizard creates entries for both parts , one of which must be removed. Ive documented this fault here some time ago, anyone know if its been fixed yet?

Just to let people know!

Sub_title: mouse pointer disappears - could it be amd cpu?

mouse pointer disappears - I have the same problem - had it with 2.17 and have it now with 3.1. Seems I started having the prob since getting a new MB with a dual core AMD cpu. What cpu's do you people have? Coudl that be the problem?

I added that line and have not had the problem since
