@01micko,

Your wbar for dpup works great. Configuration is simple and reliable, however, (very minor preference) the font still defaults to Creampuff regardless of last font selection.

Cheers,
Jim

With rfkill and acpitool you can make dpup really laptop friendly binding function keys to small scripts or commands by using Xbindkeys-config. Suspending to ram: acpitool -s, Wlan on and of with for example wlan.sh. I have copied from fluppy /etc/acpi/* the scripts to my other puppies with rfkill and acpitool.

You can get the laptop for airplane mode for example.

Hibernate: acpitool -S if Iguleder compile 2.6.35.6 kernel hibernate enabled Very Happy Question Very Happy Question

Also there is dual graphics switching possibility in kernel: switcheroo which would be handy with these new laptops with dual graphics. Need to be also enabled when compiling kernel. Very Happy Exclamation Very Happy Exclamation

Ummm ... we need to get the numlock thing working. Can anyone make a PET?


I use the debian numlockx package. See

http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/i386/numlockx/download

However, it does not turn the numlock LED on. This means that this LED becomes working in reverse mode Smile if you hit the NumLock button.
It is weird. This has been a known bug in Debian
https://bugs.launchpad.net/debian/+source/numlockx/+bug/218202
since Apr 2008 Sad


I also have the Debian numlockx installed. The behaviour I have now in Puppy Squeeze : LED is not activated, but the number keys are working. When I hit the numlock key, the LED goes on and the number keys are still active!

Thanks for the link to the launchpad bug two-year-long..discussion. Erratic and controversial results with numlockx are more than confirmed there.
Someone in that discussion explained numlockx is no longer maintained and doesn't work with recent kernels. It seems Ubuntu - and so Mint also- have found another solution.
Out of curiosity I opened the package manager in Mint Debian and sure enough: numlockx is not installed. but Mint Debian handled the numlock perfectly from the first day I used it.
Hope this can help.

vlc 1.1.3 (no gui) for squeeze is here
It needs libiconv from here

As you know, DEV and DOC packages are optional.
It compiles just fine without libiconv too, but then OSD and subtitles don't work. Plays variety of formats.

GTK frontend by sc0tman is here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy//viewtopic.php?t=54753

libiconv-1.13.1-i486-squeeze.pet
vlc-1.1.3-i486-squeeze.pet
vlc-gtk-1.8.pet

from dejan555 at page 19 is working quite well somehow equal and perhaps better than gnome-mplayer
raising the volume by pointing to the video window and using the scroll wheel and f-key for toggling fullscreen are some keys I've found out for today . It is a bit much console but for learning and debugging it's OK ! Smile

PostPosted: Tue 28 Sep 2010, 21:28    Post subject: Numlock Pet -
Subject description: Hope this is a good solution.
 

I've spent most of my day getting this working.

Quite a challenge!

This pet enables on/off functionality for those who want Numlock on when X starts - btw you can't turn it off again with the numlock key.

it creates these files....

/root/Startup - the check script - this checks /etc/numlockx.lol - to see whether numlock is enabled/disabled are on or off.
/root/.Xmodmap - which disables numlock key
/usr/share/applications/Numlock_locker.desktop - In Deskop X Setings
/usr/bin/numlockx - the main part
/usr/bin/setleds - turns on/off numlock led
/usr/local/bin/set_numlock - actual gtkdialog script for .desktop file
/etc/numlock.lol - true/false lock file

Testing called for - hope it is of some use to somebody!
Paul

Edit: version 2 uploaded - forgot a couple of libs.
Edit-again: version3 uploaded - this time with the libs under /usr/lib not /usr/libs -- sorry!

I don't know if I need it :

downloaded paulhombus' numlock.pet

renamed it to .tar.gz

there is /usr/libs -path in it and not /usr/lib so I didn't install it

BTW : starting with trying to make a .desktop.pet for pupdial by tgz2pet it extracted to /usr/share/applications but created only empty files even when putting the icon to it. Using dir2pet would I have to create the whole pathes inside this directory and if yes, has this directory be located on "/" ?

tubeguy: wow, great wallpaper! I really really like it.

Can you change the background to the blue of the current wallpaper? It's the perfect color, blends so well with the icons Smile

Good news, got a working 2.6.35.7, with rfkill, KMS, hibernate and all the goodness Linux offers us.

Now I'm doing another one, this time with some BFS love Smile

Performance seems good, it's the first distro ever with working headphones on my eee.

Here's something I just wrote, a power management thingy. You'll have to load all CPU frequency governor modules first, "modprobe cpufreq_something".

Also has Eee support Wink
