I downloaded the puppy 3.01 NOP r6 but when i burn it to cd and start it up, I get the "normal" puppy dektop
and not the NOP version

Am I doing something wrong?

dinky: It is not possible to specify where Xfce4 first puts the device icons - yet. I may be able to figure out how in a future update Confused .

jkurver: I dont see how you can have the normal desktop Shocked - jwm and rox have been removed from NOP !! Maybe you have mixed up your iso's when burning the CD ?

Maybe you are picking up the normal desktop from a pup_save file that already exists in your home partition.

Try booting from live CD with the cheat code:
puppy pfix=ram
Type this in the first screen.

If this works, you'll probably have to either repair or scrap your pup_save file

Life is too short to spend it in front of a computer

Thanks for the reply!
you are right, when I installed to harddisk, I got the xfce desktop.
Great Job by the way!

its very very fast. I tried most distros with xfce desktop, but this one will stay on my (old) laptop for sure

does anyone know how to get virualbox working in puppy NOP?

Hi Gray, I'll likely add hotpup with only hotplugged items active on first boot, rather than local hard disks. While most systems won't have that many partitions, booting on mine makes the screen look a bit silly...lol. All right when organised... Will play around with preconfiguring the settings before remastering, and see what I come up with. Also, is it possible to set the default trash, root, and File System Icons in Xforce to the right instead of the left?

Below is a link to the first pre-release of my pupplet. I'd love feedback if anyone's interested. There's several things I need to complete, fix, and add, so this is very much a pre release. That said, it's designed as a pupplet for complete computer novices, and will come with extensive documentation (yet to be written). It's based on wNOP(compiz-fusion included), encorporates more recent versions of NOP, and includes a customised graphical layout, additional programs, and scripts to make saving to a usb, and rebooting on another computer, easy.
As it's intended for people who won't need to configure anything other than personal preferences at startup, I hvae made it 170Mb, including programs such as Gimp, Abiword, Xine, and additional Xine codecs.

To have a look, go to http://www.curiouslegends.com.au/tigerpup and grab one of the iso's. tigerpupversion1-3.iso is the first pre-release without a splash screen, and tigerpupversion1-3splash.iso includes pebble, which I am still playing with. All the best!

Hi gray,
I don't want to missuse your expertise, but you made an excellent
product, and (I guess) a scanner is of general interest and has more
to do with home office, than the DVD-player (but it is nice to have Smile
The facts:
- My scanner works well in any deb/rpm distro (with the driver from
- I used gslapt-0.3.19a to install sane and xsane, but no success.
- sane-find-scanner clearly sees the scanner
- scanimage -L let me know:
"device `brother2:bus2;dev1' is a Brother DCP-130C USB scanner"
- but xsane (after some frickling) tell me
"Failed to open device 'brother2:bus2;dev1': wrong argument"

I think, somwere in some Puppy setup files a notification is needed,
thad enables the link from sane to xsane.

What I did:
- create: /etc/sane.d/brother2.conf -->
# Brother DCP-130c
usb 0x04f9 0x01a8

- add line to file: /etc/sane.d/dll.conf -->

try with/without in: /etc/fstab -->
none /proc/bus/usb devices auto,devmode=0666 0 0

added in: /etc/udev/rules.d/80-libsane.rules -->
# Brother DCP-130C
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04f9", ATTRS{idProduct}=="01a8", MODE="0664", GROUP="scanner"

in terminal:
cd bin
addgroup -g scanner root

and still the message:
"Failed to open device 'brother2:bus2;dev1': wrong argument"

But now my knowhow (as semi n00b) is outspent: I have no more ideas!
Does anybody have an hint where the missing link could be found?
