No fatal error but irritating for noobs that don't have english.

Difficlut to write anything if Lupu don't have the proper keyboard for that person.

So is it possible to let them chose it in a way that really retain it.

I had to write

setxkbmap se to get swedish keyb.

But it could be me messing things up. I am known to be a poor reader of instructions.

But people are used to that puppy keyboard works in puppyu431 so such could be important too?

not whining just saying Smile

aarf, ever played Clanbomber?

i try to steer away from things with violent connotations these days so, no i haven't. anything with rapid repeated movements is out too, RSI being cumulative in my book.


Clanbomber is that. it is a game though with bright colors and lots of noise. I hope it is not something that would have negative coronations in the U.K.

Thanks Nooby. I would have thought the Swedish keyboard could have been chosen by running xorgwizard at the prompt. I will test that in 115 late tonight or tomorrow.

alt+drag of a window from anywhere within that window is critical for use on my screen. too many things depend on that ability to not have it. it is a show-stopper if not there.

aarf, alt-drag. Have you explained how to get that? Or what's missing? Sorry if you have done it and I can't remember where it is. could you remind me please or direct me? Thanks.

Attention knowledgeable Linux users. Is it possible to exit the window manager to a prompt *and* run a command from that prompt, such as

#wmexit xorgwizard

Thanks.

Don't know about Lucid, but normally:

Menu>shutdown>exit to prompt
or
Control>alt>backspace

put mouse cursor over an open window, push the alt key and simultaneously hold down the left mouse, a cross appear where the cursor is then you can drag the window. needed to see boundaries of large windows in small screens.
works in every puppy and quirky but fails in lupu 113 and 114. cant remember if 112 was ok.

I trust that it does but I am not only the oldest noob this forum have but I am a dummie too so I often fail to do such things.

I am one of those dreaded "Out of the Box" old guys. Smile

smil99, It is no to ffplay in LP 5.0 I am sorry to say. It started the same run of dependencies that Openshot did yesterday. The story is that this is one of the times when LP is not designed to use the Ubuntu binaries but rather a pet of ffmpeg that Barry prepared--designed to save space and also to work. And it does work, reasonably well from my tests on gxine. Trying to mix the pet and Ubuntu files is problematical, and also replacing the pet files with ubuntu files is not straightforward. This is something that we have to just say no to because of the place in the process we are, we do not want to open any cans of worms. On the other hand, it is something we can start working on for 5.0.1/5.1. Thanks.

I meant to mention that the Lock program on the desktop should work.

<add> Wait. Didn't that not work in 114? Or a previous version? It works now. That was the easiest ever.

It was nothing I did on purpose. I guess you don't have any idea what makes it work, huh?

I reported this already in the 113 bug thread in wich I said I reported it already before.
This way of doing is a standard way of handling windows. I have no idea what has gone wrong.

Béèm (and aarf)

It's a jwm thing, I rolled back to jwm-478 (earlier in this thread) and alt-drag works.

Joe has released jwm-491, we'll see if that fixes it Wink

Cheers
