Gray,

Just when I thought Puppy 412 retro with icewm was for sure my everyday version of Puppy, I had to go and try NOP 4.12. I had never tried Xfce until now. This is really nice! I'm posting this from a frugal install of it.

FYI, I found a small bug that makes Thunar hang when clicking a sfs or iso to mount, and Thunar has to be killed with the task manager or reboot to get it to work properly again. It's easy to fix, just comment or remove the code "rox -D $MntPt" at lines 74 and 79 in /usr/sbin/filemnt.

Many thanks for creating this Puppy!

Grey,
Thanks for a great Puplet. I am a newb and had tried about a dozen puplets when I found your NOP and BoxPup. I like the conky, clock etc on BoxPup but love the feel of NOP. I think I will learn the ropes a bit & try to get those items over into NOP and have one fantastic puplet. I have one problem which is actually not a puplet issue but a puppy issue in general. The details are in my post here
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=22245&start=30
Don't know if there is any ideas you or anyone else reading this may have but any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for a very user friendly for newb puplet.

HaMMer........ if you follow the instructions I posted here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=260437#260437 you can get Conky running just fine on NOP. Changing the permission of the start up script is a little different using the Thunar file manager in NOP. Right click on the file and select 'properties'. On the permissions tab, select 'allow to run as program'
Also, NOP does not seem to need the mod to the .xinitrc file. Good Luck. It works just fine on my system.

Hi Gray. I have a most odd problem with NOP 4.1. Basically, I cannot re-use a pup_save file with a fresh installation. I have NOP installed as a hard drive Frugal, and a USB Frugal. If I run from the live CD, I would expect NOP to find the hard drive save file, which it does, and use it, which it also does, thus allowing me to effectively run 'my' set up from the live CD, BUT, when the desktop loads, even though it looks the same, there is a big difference. The menu button either appears and is disabled, or does not appear at all. Desktop icons such as drives etc, usually appear briefly, then are gone.
The launchbars are present, correctly configured, and work just fine. This effectively makes it impossible to transfer my set-up from one pc/boot device to another. Any ideas please?

Subject description: does not save settings
 

When I select print from Mousepad, Xfprint appears as in the screenshot. It never saves settings, although I choose that. So I always have to reselect my laserjet default printer. An unnecesary annoyance I guess.

I use Nop 4.1.2. but this problem was around before that.

grey,
Just a big Thanks for NOP!

I am a newb to Linux and Puppy but NOP is what will make me stick with Puppy. I've used Opera since its shareware days and XFCE looks and works great so far.

Again, thanks!

Steve

I've been using Xfburn but even though I have the box ticked for "show hidden files," it does neither show nor burn them.

Comments, please?

I am only a few days into trying puppy linux. I would prefer Opera and would probably prefer Open Office, so it sounds like I should change to NOP.
A couple of questions:


1. as I am already using Puppy Linux 4.1.2 booting from CD and saving to hard drive, will what is already saved on the hard drive (pupsave file??) have any conflict with starting over with NOP 4.1.2?

2. I have noticed that NOP is designed to run from USB or from HD install, does that mean I can't configure it to boot from CD? I have a Compaq Presario 1200 laptop which has Windows ME, I am too new to Linux to feel comfortable doing anything to upset the Windows already on the hard drive, and I'm not sure if this computer can boot from a USB stick. (Does anyone know or how can I find out?)

What are the hardware requirements for NOP? (I have 192 Mb ram which is the max this computer can take.)

Thanks for your suggestions.
