for me. Any idea ??

If you send me a link to the drivers, I can add them to the next Puppeee.

Thanks for reply, tempestuos.

I tried your instructions, but when I run the " make menuconfig" comand , it returns:

bash : make: command not found

you need to add the devx to allow you to compile programs (use the make program) or wait for Jemimahs next update

Be aware of the comments in the next thread from tempestuous

Well if you're trying to compile kernel modules, then you will also need the compatible kernel source.

My reply was a link to another forum link where I provided pre-compiled Xorg plugins for various Puppy versions. I did not provide any reference to the "make menuconfig" command, neither did I suggest comiling modules.
You're probably "mix-and-matching" other information gleaned from this forum.

I caution that compiling kernel modules is a non-trivial process. If you're not already familiar with this process, I recommend you use my pre-compiled packages.

I believe the kernel module is already there. But I'm using the Xorg from Quirky so the Xorg driver likely needs to be built from source. I will attempt to build it if I have at least one tester who wants to test it.

I'm in the same situation. I can't get the modprobe to work either. I can test if its working.

Hi jehmimah,

How could you help me with this problem?
What can I do to order to test your solution ? Do I need to download another version of puppeee ?

thanks in advance,

lcande

I will post a pet when I get a chance to do the research and build the driver. I should have time to work on this shortly.

Isn't this part of the functionality Xinput?
I think that Barry built gtk2 (at least the dingo series 2.14.7 version) without Xinput support and thus all the programs compiled against it may be without Xinput support.

Hmmm, that could be a problem.

I'll see if I can get the Xorg driver to compile and well go from there I guess.

if you end up having to recompile gtk2, here are a couple of things to note:
Pango after version 1.24.5 pulls in libstdc++ due to changes in one module
Gtk after 2.18.9 requires gobject-introspect
Gtk after 2.16.6 needs a patched version of ROX-Filer
Xinput must be explicitly enabled at compile time
seamonkey and firefox have the insert key bug if gtk is compiled with debugging off - minimum is fine. (Barry actually did 2 compiles because it doesn't affect all gtk libraries)

Does it work to just drop in an upgraded set of gtk libs? Or will i have to rebuild every gtk app?

I am really not sure - most should work fine I would assume - unless they have specific code for extra (or less maybe?) features if compiled xinput enabled. What comes to my mind would be programs like mypaint that have pressure sensitivity or other features that aren't normally available - it depends on if the code compiled out by not being defined if xinput is not available, but I would thing that regular mouse operations should still work fine.

It would be nice if any "recommends" or "optional" libraries could be compilable with dlopen and that ldd would report them as such (like GL, GLU etc.. for xorg drivers and several parts of wine use libs that ldd can't pick up)
