I second that! Smile
(for the dragging of links and folders into the GUI)

Back on 2.14X now Smile and here's the thing do you want Pwget or Uget? I was using 416 and that had Uget and so I tried the 4 series package and it worked, give it a try and please inform me which is the better of the 2?

PostPosted: Sun 19 Jul 2009, 12:58    Post_subject: pwget/uget  

Hello!

Been trying pwget from 4 series and uget from the link above out by downloading isos from ibiblio. If a transfer is interrupted, pwget resumes the download from where it was Smile , while uget restarts from the beginning Sad.
With pwget it is possible to download multiple files by using wildcards. Smile
With uget batch download this should also be possible but, the narrow choice of preset wildies severly limits the use of this feature (or perhaps I didn't grasp its function properly) Sad Confused.
Although uget has a more developed interface, with more options, my vote goes to pwget, for its simple interface, and more importantly, because it resumes (not restarts) interrupted downloads.

cheers/
MHHP

here's the version I'm going to use, I removed the default icon and reused the download icon to save space and plus the default icon was choppy looking due to the 16x16 menu size, I change the directory structure to /usr/bin no need to have a directory for a single script and gave it the default puppy logo, to spruce up the gui. Now its a lot smaller also Smile

# Linux bootable initrd config begins
title Puppy Linux (frugal) install on /dev/hda1
rootnoverify (hd0,0)

I haven't read the whole 59 pages yet, so I don't know if this has been reported. When installing with Puppy Universal Installer, which calls Grub Bootloader config, which writes this error to menu.lst. with V5 2.14X

Ok my last update for pwget, I changed the 'ok' button to 'Download' and gave it the download icon :"
Now it looks really professional, I didn't like 'ok' due to the fact that a lot of programs use 'ok' for other things. Download is more specif to the task at hand. Smile

Ok are you sure this is a problem, funny nobody else has had a issue, well ok How to do we fix it ? Do you have a dialog update file etc?
Just always quicker if people provide files for testing Smile
There were some issues with installs also, I'm not pro at that sort of config, so I'll leave it up to you guys to work it out and I'll include any fixes that work Smile

Hi ttuuxxx, Looking good for X7. Here's another small thing. It's possible to install tar.gz's to pup, but there's no obvious way to do it. The easiest is to add a rox menu symlink (just like gtkhash) to petget in /usr/sbin. In my pic I've changed the name to install & added an icon. What do you think.

Hi I'll give it a shot and see what happens:)
I also made right click menu items for cd/iso files, Now you can burn or erase directly like image below Smile

ttuuxxx,

You're such a busy guy I hope what I'm about to ask of you
won't be a difficult or time consuming possibility:

Would it be possible to also produce a version of 214X7
which has the SeaMonkey browser? Perhaps it could be
214X7-S versus 214X7-F (Firefox)?

On my older system SeaMonkey is much snappier than
Firefox and I've really grown accustomed to it. For some
reason when I use Firefox certain websites grind to a
very sluggish near halt.

Believe me, we all appreciate your common sense genius
in the way you innovate and 'make better' the things we
truly like about Puppy!

I've often wondered how certain posts come in as 'doubles.'

Now I have experienced it!

I have the tar.gz working Smile also to keep the icons that are set, the /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/globicons file had to be copied, thats where it stores the info about the images Smile
