Hey tubeguy and stripe, Using Audacious--pet on page 128--I was able to 1) play music with my m-audio card on my big machine, and 2) play music with my extigy on my p3 thinkpad. Neither were the first cards--and nothing else would even acknowledge the extigy or play through the m-audio. What I did is discussed in the post with audacious. I bet it might play your turtle beach usb card tubeguy. With Audacious I do not need to block any cards--I can choose between them.

Awesome! Thanks for the heads up, will give it a try.

Somebody on the forum has requested a pet for Backgammon. This is the GNU version - pet is about15MB.

I don't play Backgammon (I really ought to learn), so I can't give an opinion as to what it's like. Hopefully it's OK

Get it here:

Do you reckon it would be easy to get Xfce desktop up and running all?


Dejan555 just made an XFCE 4.6.2 pet for DPup so it probably wouln't take a lot of tweaking to make it work in 510.
Post is http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=438822#438822


I just gave this a quick try running 510 live pfix=ram, everytime I installed a missing lib it wanted another......and another........... Laughing

If you are talking about Compiz Fusion,

why not trying to use it instead of a Window Manager(together with Emerald)? This would speed up the system significantly! I tried different Puppies with CF and only this solution run smoothly on my Eee.

I used Eeetiger and Ripple for a long time till development stopped.The only disadvantage I found was that Skype didn't work with CF Crying or Very sad . If this can be solved it would be the best solution in relation of look and handling I can think about.

From time to time I tried to install it by myself but it's far behind my knowledge.

Dont know about the 111 and printscreen key sorry Confused


I set up my screenshot like this:

1) Create a script called mtpaintnow containing

#!/bin/sh
mtpaint -s &

2) Copy script to /usr/local/bin

3) Add <Key keycode="111">exec:mtpaintnow</Key>
to /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal

4) Restart JWM

Perhaps you can do the same with Scrot?


@tronkel

Thanks for all the game pets - highly entertaining. Smile

Ok, dejan 555's xfce4 tweaked for lupu.

http://www.smokey01.com/01micko/lucid/xfce-deps-1.pet 4.2M, deps included.

It should install fine and run fixmenus, so you can go straight into it from icewm (X will restart)

else, drop to a prompt and type xwin startxfce4

TODO
*fix WMswitcher so it knows about it
*fix menu icons
*fix xdg templates so menus are correct

I use wbar with it, oh and all your walls should get symllinked to the special folder that xfce uses for walls.

Cheers

rightio.. getting there.. got the tray icons sorted.. will need to inform BK because changes need to be made in /usr/sbin/delayedrun.. there is actually a buglet in there for retrovol, I have fixed it but it's far from serious,

playdayz... it would be much better if we can move to BK's newer tray icons. No prob if you want Blinky to look similar, I can hack the xpm files and compile them in, Barry has new functionality for these icons too, will be important to move over to them.

Cheers

EDIT:

I updated the icons and the good news is they aren't compiled in, so any one can change them to whatever they like.






Cheers

OK, I had missed that step.

I don't see a difference on my display other than the background so have reverted to the "overtime" background.

Thanks!

LOL.... the save file icon displays 'danger, running out of space', when everything is OK, it has a green band at the top, yours has a red one at the bottom, which is what it changes to when you are in trouble Smile

There is some new stuff in Lupu News. Opera 10.61 and the beta of another browser that people might find interesting.
