grey do you think there is that much benefit in removing rox? its only like 400kb and jwm is like 68 compressed

personally id rather ditch thunar and stick with Rox but that is just my opinion I hope i get a chance to burn a copy of NOP 4.1

Much easier to use Rox for rescuing computers.
For example permississions,,,deletes.

Why not throw it in as an extra.
Booted USB through defaults...OK.

But this is a hardware issue.
Another 2 gig Stax USB needed MBR Bin on Puppy 4.1.?

Thanks gray.

Chris.

Gotta admit I prefer Thunar to Rox as well. How do I replace Thunar, or at least add it on?

gray,

I observed a couple of things in Nop 4.1 that I think are not related to it per se, but worth noting.

1.) sgmixer stopped working and I could not recover it. Terminal said it couldn't run it. When I tried to use absvolume instead, same. I dropped back to a prior configuration. This problem has, I think been noted elsewhere in the forum for puppy 4.1. E.g. here:
sGmixer 4.1 official (2.6.25.16 kernel):
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=34131&start=75&sid=3d9d2e0281b0ce7b2ee90dce46284bc8

I dropped back to a prior configuration and this has not recurred.

2.) This might be a small bug in xfce/thunar. It has happened several times after making some panel changes, etc. I always configure thunar for single click and view as detailed list. When this problem occurs thunar always comes up after a reboot with double click and view as icons. Again, the only way I could fix this was to drop back to a prior configuration.

No problems at present. Nop is the best!

Henry

alejobar: I use OO 2.4.1 from http://puppylinux.ca/tpp/bugs

wosifat et al who prefer Rox to Thunar : Philistines !!!

Henry: After Puppy 4.4.1 is out I will update NOP to add the fixes such as that for sgmixer. I will also upgrade to xfce4.4.3 / Opera 9.61 and flash 10. Very Happy

I do not know what philistines means but I would like to know it means thunar will stay as NOP oficial file manager. I could never manage rox properly. Definitely, I do not like it.

Hello gray!

I find one thing.
There is .desktop file of "ThunarBulkRename'' in '/usr/share/applications'
and its exec command is '/usr/local/libexec/ThunarBulkRename'.
But actually "ThunarBulkRename" is located '/usr/libexec/ThunarBulkRename'.

Anyway, you will upglade xfce and this subject may useless Smile

Would it be possible for you to package "your" updated xfce and make it available?

Thanks for the link Gray, and just to verify, the .sfs file you can only use it with live cd and frugall install right? because I'm running full install and I mount the .sfs with boot manager, reboot and nothing happened, theres no open office on the menu, and I can see in boot manager that the sfs is mounted. Confused so I'm lost here...

Simply run "unsquashfs OpenOffice-3.0.sfs.org" on xfce terminal.
And copy all in squashfs-root to '/'.

...

Oh, the ways of cb88 and magerlab are more elegant.
Please pick up them.
