Thanks Runt
so the Swedish has to be some Enlightenment thing added free of charge. Even you did not do anything to make it there?

Anyway my 80 year old neighbor like the graphics.

I noticed the individual desktops are assigned 0,0 and 0,1 etc. Can I set specific applications to launch to only one desktop specifically assigned. Such as Opera opens on desktop 0,0 and switches to that desktop on launch. This is nice for small 10" screens etc.
I was messing around with configurations and found these:

Settings >> Windows >> Window Display >> *tick* "Auto switch to desktop of new window."

Place your chosen application onto the virtual desktop that will become it's permanent home. Maximize it and drag beyond any shelves if you wish. Right click title bar >> More >> Remember >> Advanced >> *tick* "Window name and class" >> *tick* "Virtual Desktop", "Fullscreen state" or "position & size" if not fullscreen >> Apply >> Close

Have the window settings open your browser fullscreen without borders on its own desktop to maximize screen real estate.

If you have a 10" screen or smaller you can add more virtual desktops with E17 and assign favorite apps to open in their home desktops either fullscreen or sharing with others in whatever size/position you want. Set shelves to autohide. Recommend launch specific shelves to be placed on sides.

Also if you have opened several small puppy apps at the same time (many don't need or use fullscreen at all) go to Main >> Windows >> Cleanup Windows and you get a smart arrangement.

Hi Runtt, Prit..

Congratulations on another well-received release...nice to read that good review and see this pup on the up-and-up at Distrowatch - when i looked just now, it's at #6, with 1126 downloads just from there, so that must be pretty encouraging Very Happy

Mirror for this tail-wagger: http://meownplanet.net/puppylinuxstuff/macpupopera/Macpup_Opera2.iso + MD5 link, default image etc. on my Macpups page.

User: puppy and Password: linux required to d/l from my site, as usual.

Cheers!

dolphinsupernova try setting it in both puppy ( wizard wizard) and e17 menu/settings/settings panel/input/mouse settings.

omskates & songzi try using xvesa first, But I think you may need to boot it using acpi=force .


using xvesa works for me. thanks.
btw, I am booting directly from the usb stick. how can I set booting with acpi=force?

You can while booted up click on the SDx icon to open it up.
Depending on which program that made it the boot program is lilo or grub lagacy or grub4DOS and you find a Dir there that says boot and in that one another saying grub and in that one you have menu.lst and it looks a bit like this

Quote:

title Elive Normal Mode
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.30.9-elive-686 boot=eli quiet vga=788 resolution acpi=force
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.30.9-elive-686


If it is lilo or isolinux or some other you have to ask them if they also accept acpi=force

Thanks runtt, It is always something simple isnt it, it is kinda funny. Thanks for checking about the trash module. It just seems such a basic module since a trash is always standard fare. Strange its not more supported, but thanks anyhow and let me know what you find out.

well just an update, I was able to take the battery and cpu modules from your older e17 Opera .61. So there is two more modules.
