Hi Mark, Puppy live has been running on a machine here since it was released. Really enjoying the look and responsiveness of it but having a problem that 3 times now (in the last couple of weeks) it will fail to load at the stage of starting up X. Instead of a desktop we have a small white square in the middle of the screen. Turning the computer off and trying again sometimes works.


Can you exit X with CTRL-ALT-Backspace?
Then you could backup the log (before starting X again):
cp -ax /var/log/Xorg.0.log /root/
sync


Then you might attach /root/Xorg.0.log here.
Beside potential errors, it also includes detailed info about your graficscard, that could give me some hints.

Mark

With Muppy 0084.s, in low right corner, overlapping the digital clock, there is a white box, 1/3 the height of the digit. It is not a great problem. I added 6 spaces to panel definition. As a result the clock moved left.

The box is loaded after the wallpaper but before the icons.
I wonder whether it is a small error somewhere.

can you attach a screenshot, please?
thanks,

zgp,
that is the window of the autocutselect utility, that adds cut&paste to the desktop.
It requires a "hidden" window.
What desktop environment is running there?
Ususally it should be covered by the taskbar.

I have selected the only option that contains 2 visible panels and one hidden (you know the names, I am not now in Muppy know to check them). The bottom panel was changed to transparent but I think the square has always covered the clock display, with any bar color.

I am having a problem with cups. It configures fine, even prints out a test page perfectly, but when I go and try to print something using Abiword or OpenOffice, the printer is not there. I get the feeling the answer is gonna be simple and I'm gonna feel foolish but alas I can't get it to wor

This is with a MuppyMini frugal install with addons, games, and office extensions. Using an HP 2330 with the HP extensions..

in cups, set the printer as default printer.
Then in Abiword and other programs it is used, if you choose postscript as printer.

i want to use digikam within muppy, as i do it with kubuntu. i would prefer muppy in the future. it's a smaller os.

the installation via gslapt went well, but digikam won't start and i will get this message in a xterm:

digikam: error while loading shared libraries: libkdcraw.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


If you want try this packages, Its based on slackware 12.0, I didn't compile it because I'm using 4.0.1 at the moment.
If It doesn't work, just uninstall it
ttuuxxx


i installed "libkdcraw.pet" as ttuuxxx suggested

now i got this:

I have an HP laptop with a built in card reader.
I am having a problem mounting my memory card from my camera. When I use wNOP pmount sees and mounts the card, with muppy none of the mounting programs see the card. I am also having some issues with the clock in KDE .

Hi Mark, I don't want to bother you with the contents of my Dell machine's Xorg log.....thanks for the offer but it is obviously a rogue machine and I will use Muppy on other machines Very Happy

Wishing you all the best and many thanks for your contributions to Puppy and the forum.

PostPosted: Sat 29 Nov 2008, 17:56    Post_subject: Where do I get Muppy 008.4?  

Would someone kindly post a link to the latest Muppy release (it is 008.4x, yes?). Much appreciated.

Rolling Eyes OK. I haven't gone through the 20 pages (and 296 posts) that make up this thread. But the link in the first post doesn't work. It only leads to Muppy 008.3f-EN Kernel 2.6.21.7. (A fine release... I'm very impressed. I wanted to see if 008.4x would excel this version.)

Honestly: Muppy has really surprised me. And this release is fine. I'm just wondering if any thing cool/exciting/etc. is available in 008.4x. I'll let you all in on my plans!

Wink I've begun distributing Puppy Linux to hapless Windows XP users whose systems have gotten so flaky they feel like tossing their PCs into the rubbish tip. I give them Puppy Linux as a "temporary solution" until they're ready to have their hard drives wiped and a fresh copy of XP installed.

Confused Since their office suites are genrally pirated and they don't have the replacement setup discs, Puppy makes a nice, free alternative. And MUppy has certainly stood out to me.

Very Happy So. I could read all 400 posts in this 20 page thread. But a link to the most recent release would be a relief.

Embarassed I'll eventually make my way through all the posts. But I'm kinda hoping to get downloading while I'm reading.

Excellent. Many thanks.

I do appreciate your thoughtfulness. I'll keep an eye on this thread for the link to the ISO (I'll start the torrent going).

Smile There were a number of other files (gosh! I'm being greedy, yes?) that the ftp site may have offered. I downloaded a few last night, in particular:

addons_083.sfs
development_083.sfs
e17_083.sfs
games_083.sfs
kde358_083.sfs
lg3d_083.sfs
office_083.sfs

I'm working off this ISO: Muppy-mini-008.3.iso

Question Does anyone know what's happening to this particular distribution of Puppy Linux? Is it dying due to one man carrying it out far longer than he should? Or due to a lack of funds?

I am definitely curious. Curious because this has become a favorite version. I would not be pleased to hear it died. Rolling Eyes
