I just installed you pcc.gz file to /usr/sbin, made it executable, and was able to change the environment to light backgrounds on the applications.
So I do not know why it was changed.

Just downloaded pup44-a1.iso, but the usual MD5 check is routine here before burning; surprise, no MD5 -- a SHA1 checksum is currently offered, for which I have no hints. Could the MD5 be published along, or else a quick link to a .PET for checking SHA1 sums?

Many thanks in advance, I'll go for a burn anyway in the meantime, hoping all is OK: I'm too curious Wink .

There is the problem - the template differs from the standard one.

it probably better to add a file with the appropriate jwm bits and then add an include statement at the end of the template. that way the code is removed if the pet is uninstalled (an empty include should have no effect)

add the code to a file
<JWM>
....code....
</JWM>

then code something like...
sed -i "s|</JWM>|include /path/to/myjwmbits \n </JWM>|g" etc/xdg/templates/_root_.jwmrc

I'm sure there are other packages like this, so its good to catch it early - excellent work.

Frugal installation on an old Sony vaio laptop with only 64MB ram on an ext3 partition. Installs fine and everything sets up without a problem. However, when a save file is created, the save file created is always corrupt (regardless of save file size) and on the next boot kernel panic and freeze.

Q1) sfs and screen 4.3.5..... confusing... is this 4.4?

Q2) Used puppy manager to install sqlitedms-0.5.1-pup4, said all dependencies met. Found entry in business menu. Followed yellow box instructions click left button Squlitdms, received Failed to connect 127.0.0.1:6543.

Kind of miss some of the icons on the desktop, but like the clean and crisp control panel.

My_links folder can use some examination for Newbe.....what is it?...etc.

Looks crisp and clean.

Has anyone else had issues with a save file?

My links is for the sfs linker so that you can install an sfs file without having to reboot. It simply mounts the sfs as normal and makes symlinks to proper places in the main file system. There are still a couple of bugs with it though - the devx.sfs doesn't work due to an obscure symlink issue.

It is 435 because it is alpha 1... A2=436 B1=437 B2=438 RC=439 & release =440... fairly standard practice to skip a few numbers for bugfix releases (ttuuxxx is working on 432) and start a few numbers back from the next to build toward the next stable release number.

As far as the icons go, it is nice and clean for the minimalists and yet very easy to add back any icons you want using the add icons tray on the left. (which reminds me - I still need to put up a couple screenshots)

In Quirky 018, the synaptics touch pad on my laptop Acer Aspire 4736Z doesn't work properly. There is no respond when I click on the pad so I have to use the button bellow it. However, in Puppy 4.4alpha1 everything is fine. Is there any differences in drivers of the two versions?

It might have been a freak event, but after saving the first time, it knocked out my grub bootloader, so I had to reinstall one. After that, I copied in another pupsave. The update process was very impressive, and got everything. Everything working nicely!!!

When you change the number of desktops, the "menu" button ceases to respond.


To fix it, edit .jwmrc-tray and insert this:

<TrayButton icon="/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/start-button.png">root:3</TrayButton>

In some cases, this line is there with root:0
Shall be replaced with root:3

Subject description: Please reinstate gview
 

I noticed the graphics viewer 'gview' is now absent.
Please reinclude this little program, it operates in ways
the present viewer does not.

I've found it very handy to have gview be the default in
my systems, and use right-click/open-with for the 'big' viewer
when needed.

It's a speedy, effecient way of viewing multiple small images.
Resizing on-the-fly with mouse wheel and being ablt to click&drag
by grabbing *inside* the picture.

If I knew what those things are, I would.

I only know gview was in 4.31, now it's gone.

This version seems short of libs like libao and libsamplerate needed for apps like rdesktop. I don't know if this was intentional.
