Thanks for replying. #8 is still amazing for a puplet.

Unfortunately the centre's users didn't take to Enlightenment for some reason (I think one said they had a problem with the menus, text too small or something) so I had to revert it back to JWM. It's still in use though.

You might want to get that fixed! Laughing

...

Ha, i think it's too late for that! Very Happy

And hey, it's nice to see also that your efforts have impressed other distro users (http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&p=215782)...

Macpup will be lurking around the DW rankings, waiting for your next release, when it'll bolt out of the barrier once again! Wink

PostPosted: Sat 12 Dec 2009, 00:14    Post subject: Running Live USB on Acer Aspire One ZG5
Subject description: E17 Taskbar stays displayed
 

Reading your thread tonight (my time) I decided to give Macpup a whirl after viewing you tube videos. Made my Pendrive using Linux version of Unetbootin with with mtools and p7zip-full installed. This Acer I inherited from my wife after getting her a Acer 15" Dual core 4 gig,Windows 7 ,Lappy for Christmas, (early Present, she's a Windows girl). This little Netbook has XP and I sectioned off 40 gig for Easy Peasy 1 (Ubuntu 8.10) so I could try to introduce her to Linux.

I run Puppy Dingo 4 on a IBM A22. Puppy 4.31 on a IBM T23. Both full Installs. I was researching what Puppy I might want to run on this Acer Aspire One ZG5 and it5 looks like Macpup is the winner. I am giving all this detailed info in case any other Aspire One Netbook Users are looking. Wireless works out of the box after using Connection Wizard. Firefox is already asked me if I wanna update to 3.5.6. Everything running pretty sweet so far.

Downloaded your 2 pet pkg themes., Fox3extra and Next1. Using AWoodMacpup2 right now. I am having one small issue. The task bar sticks when I open Firefox. Attached Screenshot below.

Really Like this pup Smile . I have installed E17 and ran it before from Cafe Linux. Not a expert with it yet though. More proficient with Icewm and Fluxbox instead.

Edit: Must be tired. Just noticed the clock to Embarassed

In E17 that "task bar" is called a shelf . I have shelf 1 set to be above everything. You can change that by going to menu /settings /shelves. Then select shelf 1 and setup advanced...... Play with it till you find what works best for you. Or just resize firefox..... same for the clock , it's on shelf 2.

Ha! They think it's the e17 that makes it fast! Loading that in Mint won't make it as fast as Macpup, but they'll soon find that out. Wink

Subject description: Runs great live USB. Sound Breaks after install
 

Acer Aspire One ZG5. Full Install. MacPup Foxy 3.

Code:
DESCRIPTION: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller
VENDOR: 8086  DEVICE: 27d8  KERNEL MODULE: snd-hda-intel


Above readout taken while running live USB. Sound works great running live. Last night did full install sda7.

Testing today noticed no sound in Flash Videos (worked ln live mode).
So opened /usr/share/sounds and played 2bark in Auqalung. Instead of woof woof. Woof Woof just kept looping over and over. Decided to run alsa config. After saying yes to modify /etc/modeprobe.conf and ran test sound. No change is loop sounds.

Tried testing in Gxine via BBC radio. Sound was stuttered there to.

So Blew away sda7. Modified /boot/grub/menu.lst. Booted up live pendrive to make sure I wasn't imagining that sound works live. It does. Posting this running live.

Smile Just posting info. Really wanted this to work out.
