PostPosted: Wed 29 Jun 2011, 20:28    Post subject: proper method to use Fluppy with nvidia  

After using Fluppy for the past 4 months I've finally
found the best method to boot Fluppy and use
the 'nouveau' graphics driver which is used by
nvidia cards.

Method: Put pfix=nox in menu.lst file
Then when you boot up you will get a prompt.
Type in 'xwin' and the boot process will proceed
easily. Apparently the computer
now knows the correct vertical refresh rate to use.


EDIT : Unfortunately it's not consistent, sometimes it works
and other times it doesn't work and I have to click on test button
and edit the xorg.conf file.
____________________________________

I haven't checked this method with booting from a CD
but it should work. Just choose the 'nox' option when booting.

Hyper linking will tame those ultra long URLs which stretch
the width of the forum pages.

Subject description: proxy-setup
 

Anyone looked at Barry's work on proxy-setup?

[url]
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=48901&start=270[/url]

What proxy changing utility is available for Fluppy 013, please?

If I understand correctly could I do as below, substituting "Midori" for "google-chrome" and plugging in the desired national proxy IP?

(Presuming that Barry's modified proxy-setup is not to be preferred, or is unavailable for Fluppy, or some other utility is preferred.)

Thanks!

Quote:

write a little wrapper-script to start chrome. example:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
export http_proxy="http://Proxy:80" #Fill in your data
export https_proxy="http://Proxy:80" #Fill in your data
google-chrome #or whatever the startcommand for your package is
exit


save this in your path e.g. in /usr/local/bin as start-chrome, make it executable. if you start it with start-chrome now, it should work.

Did it stretch the screen on yours?

I'm using Firefox, and it just wrapped the URL line on my screen.

Subject description: Claws mail upgrade to 3,7.9
 

Is there a simple and reliable method to upgrade Claws-mail to 3.7.9 or does it require manually over-writing all of the various files across multiple directories, please?

I did not find anything doing a search or checking the Puppeee Petstore.

Thanks!

Maybe Puppizard 004 by Iguleder, devx required, but allows installing/updating from source and I think GTK+ 2.10.x

Are any of these versions of Claws-mail 3.7.9 likely to work as-is with Fluppy 013, please?

Yes, I frequently browse with Puppy 3.01 (SeaMonkey) on this
older hardware and long urls can show up as very wide screens.

Certain forums have the ability to put the long url into a separate
scalable window while retaining normal width for thread discussion,
but our forum here doesn't.

I'll try Quirky with Firefox to see if it handles it differently.

Yes, Firefox in Quirky wraps it, so apparently it can be a browser
thing...

The SeaMonkey project is proud to present SeaMonkey 2.2: The new major release of the all-in-one Internet suite is available for download now! Building on the same Mozilla platform as the newest Firefox release, it delivers the latest developments in web technologies such as HTML5, hardware acceleration and improved JavaScript speed.

Most notably, this release features for the first time:

Added support for CSS animations.
Tuned HTTP idle connection logic for increased performance.
Improved canvas, JavaScript, memory, and networking performance.
Improved standards support for HTML5, XHR, MathML, SMIL, and canvas.
Improved spell checking for some locales.
WebGL content can no longer load cross-domain textures.
Background tabs have setTimeout and setInterval clamped to 1000ms to improve performance.
Fixed several stability issues.
Fixed several security issues.
Fixed several high visibility usability issues from SeaMonkey 2.1.

For a more complete list of major changes in SeaMonkey 2.2, see the What's New in SeaMonkey 2.2 section of the Release Notes, which also contain a list of known issues and answers to frequently asked questions.

Subject description: Linking Claws & Midori
 

edoc wrote:

I have been experimenting with Midori as well and find little reason to choose the much larger Seamonkey browser over the compact-Midori -- the challenge is Claws -- I am not yet comfortable with it and wish there was a script to link between the two (because I always forget the simple steps - I need to print and ring-binder them).


Here is the solution that I found to link Claws & Midori:

/root/Choices/URI

Copy "mailto" and name the copy "imailto"

I don't know why this is not done by default.

Thanks for the test. I'll keep that in mind when I see it wrap...

I wonder why Seamonkey wouldn't wrap it?... Perhaps the lack of spaces prevents it from "finding" a place to line-break...

Probably because so many elegant, simple solutions like that, get buried in threads like this and the devs never see it....?

One of the key reasons for the idea for PLUG proposed by WhoDo

Subject description: Hints, Tips, Tricks for Puppy
 

A central repository of hints, tips, and tricks would be extremely valuable - IF properly labeled for the distro and for any dependencies - no assuming that the reader knows what's on your machine.

The devs could then look there for patterns of valued features - and perhaps methods to meet them.

The Puppeee PetStore is nice - but the challenge is to keep it current. Also, core apps e.g. Claws and Midori have updates but there is not a section in the Puppeee Petstore where those updates are available - and they have been tweaked to not damage setting and archives. (I know that Jemimah is busy with life for a while - it's not a criticism - I just thought the Petstore was a good example of a nice idea that needs more support - and an expanded mission).

Thanks doc

Great ideas, now in PLUG, ...

Edited link due to deletions

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=542983#542983

....hoping once the dust settles a bit, more people will come forward and help make this happen, we are trying to centralise, if only so people know where to look - a database looks on the cards Very Happy

The 4 corners of the earth is no longer useful Wink
