With Barry's Original Puppy I seem to not have these problems with the Cyrillic letters (fonts aren't any problem at all)... strange! Or maybe not so strange. Very Happy

I just got one issue with Cyrillic letters with Geany text editor in barry's Original Puppy:
the name of the file (in Cyrillic) doesn't show up properly on the Geany's window panel and on the Tab of the same file also.

Other than that Cyrillic is properly shown and treated when browsing, naming a file, copy/paste to locations and so on.


-----------------

Seems the problem is with XFCE in NOP Pyppy and with a particular program like in Geany and maybe others. I suppose the issues could be easy fixed. At least the languages' characters must always be supported.

------------------

And onother question! I have installed Skype but I cannot make a Skype Icon on the desktop or in the top panel. How to do that?
I just want a simple Icon and to be able to change it's icon image with the Skype's one or some .png or .svg or whatever but not that gear-like icon.

Does something like this help (refer to picture attached). It sets the keyboard layout. I see that us is the only default one...don't know if you've messed with that yet. Confused

О, I have already set up that.
I loaded as a second layout the Bulgarian Phonetc as I usualy do.

It is not that the problem. It has something to do with UTF-8 UTF-16 or default ISO-8859-1 coding of symbols in XFCE and as a global setting in 'locale' file... wherever that may be.

Hi, Gray. Thanks for this wonderful puplet.

I encountered a problem in printing to a shared Windows printer though. When I print a test page, it displays a "Can't load /etc/opt/samba/smb.conf - run testparm to debug it" error.

My samba.conf is located in /etc/opt/samba/ and is the default of NOP 4.3.1. I have not touched it.

Thanks.

Ha! You're hardly the first to miss something simple...that's why I suggested it 'cause I know when I miss something it's usually the simple answer, and I've done it many, many times...glad it is working for you now! Cool

Ok, another problem I just had.

I cannot setup a PPPOE connection!!! Puppy only gives me the DHCP connection setup by default.
I tried at lest 5 or 6 suggested threads here but with no success. Sad

My Internet Provider told me that my IP is dynamic (fo ra first time in my life I use that type of IP). The connection is PPPOE with login (username and pass). Under Windows XP Pro SP3 the settings passed smooth, no problems but in Puppy NOP I cannot find the right way to setup it right (and it is important as I use 99% of my Internet surfing with Puppy!!!).

So could someone help me set up the PPPOE right and from where to do that in Puppy NOP? Thanks in advance! Embarassed


P.S. Please tell me if it is bad to connect via PPPOE and what (dis)advantages it offers me over DHCP as I had NO problems for at lest 5 years with DHCP.


EDIT:
I do not know what I did specificaly but I messed around with the pppoe-setup and after some tweaking and multiple times commanding it: pppoe-start
I t finaly ran! Laughing

hi there,

i need some help :

    how to disable right click on panel so user can't edit panel setting (moreover can't delete the panel) ?

Subject description: In case gray reads this thread
 

It's been ages since gray ventured onto the forum. I do wish him well and thanks. No one could fault him for lying low, if he is. He left us a real gift in Nop.

Maybe he will surprise us with a great new version, but right now things are a bit scattered. Maybe it's just as well, as Nop is a very serviceable, finished product, which I have adapted extensively for my working machine and used for years, as described at http://www.henrystrobel.com/linux.htm

Naturally, I test various new puppies from time to time, but am never tempted away from my custom Nop. First - it would mean a lot of work. Second - they don't have Xfce!

Honorable mention goes to Iguleder's 432, aka 4 Forward. Available with the same kernel as Nop, it can easily upgrade my ancient evolved pup-save. Adds lots of good (non essential to me working stuff) But to replace my Nop? Hardly.
