Could you point me to the snap2 package you install.

I use this snap2 which is the same one that's linked to by Quickpet on Lupu. I hope that you are able to duplicate the problem that I get.

Note: I see that the link is to an older version 2-4.4.2, I used 2-4.4.3, and I found that Istandish has updated it to 2-4.4.4. I'm installing it now to see if it has the same affect.

Unfortunately the latest version affects ptray as before. However there is another conflict that I hadn't noticed. Snap2 will not operate from the menu, it does start from a console with this message
Code:
# snap2
(process:19927): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
   Using the fallback 'C' locale.

The problem is in the file /usr/share/applications/snap2_run.desktop
Code:
Exec=xterm -e "snap2shell snapshot default.set"

The Quotes interferes with the Stardust program detection.
If you remove /usr/share/stardust/bin/"snapshell, everything else should work just fine. Fixed this for next update.


Thank you
Sigmund

Great, it worked, also worked with pup-4.3.2! Very Happy
EDIT: However, this breaks one of the functions of snap2 which is to make a quick snapshot backup. The snap2 GUI still works properly.

Minor problem--Upon reboot, after a change such as adding a program or another sfs, the default 432 icons return to desktop and have to be manually removed.
This problem has nothing to do wit Stardust, but has been around for a long time in the official Puppy. If you first remove icons on desktop, then install a sfs, icons return.


Sigmund


Jim........ the way to deal with this is to set your desktop up the way you want then remaster. This way, your preferred desktop becomes the default (which always gets loaded after installing sfs etc) instead of the Puppy original. Remastering using Dougals modified script is easy. It is here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=380240#380240

Zigbert......... something you have done here has fixed the scroll bug in Midori browser. That is to say two identical systems. 4.3.2.v3, frugal. Standard exhibits scroll bug, DuDE-0.2 installed, and bug is gone. What could it be?

Strange. I dont seem to have the rox right clicks options, and right click on a file does not give me an 'add to favourites' option.

Everyone...

If you run the latest Quirky and you love JWM, I would say that DuDE is essential. Very Happy

There is limited JWM stuff in the latest quirky/wary but DuDE seems to well and truly make up for it. I am not an openbox fan at all. I'd prefer Icewm to openbox, but JWM to both of those. If you run Wary/Quirky... try DuDE and be amazed.. Smile (you may need to exit to prompt and run "fixmenus", then run "xwin".)

(ziggy, not quite perfect but a really good start in quirky-021)

Cheers

Mick....... could you try changing one of the default program entries via PCC. When I tried it in 4.3* and 4.4 it cleared the defaultbrowser file of text, and thereafter the wizard would not run. I had to re-write the file by hand.

Concur, but it's not a keeper in quirky-021 yet.

Cheers,
Jim

EDIT: Tried DuDE again in quirky-021, and it hung up trying to set the initial desktop theme as indicated in the attached desktop picture. This time though rather than uninstalling DuDE, I installed pwidgets and then everything appears to work OK.

IMPORTANT: To try DuDE in quirky, first switch to JWM desktop, then install pwidgets. DuDE works fine and is a huge improvement over default openbox desktop IMO. Very Happy

Thanks for the link, however it still conflicts with DuDE's ptray. I don't know if that conflict can be removed without breaking snap2 partially. The current fix breaks the immediate snapshot capability, but allows the snap2 GUI interface to work properly.
