" I thought you could get online without pwireless2 "

Yes because I have a phone line >> adsl2

"""""""""
but without the level of encryption you wanted.

Lan works with my security

""""""""""
Is that wrong, and you can not get on line at all without pwireless2?

If I only had wireless....no LAN >> because I had no phone line
I would be be a lame duck.

The current security options aren't there in Puppy...
Classic or Simple.
WPA2-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 with Pre-Shared Key)

Let alone >
Mixed WPA-PSK+WPA2-PSK

WPA-802.1x

"""""""""

Also if you could link to the drivers I will put them in PPM. I know you might have already, and I am *almost* keeping up. Thanks.

I think we could do that. First we will put it back in the iso and see if there really are any problems. We might even ask jemimah to check too.

playdayz,
If you put OpenBox in the PPM, does that make it only one window manager, at initial install, with option to install others from PPM?
If yes, do you still need window manager switcher in the initial install?


Good point. We would have to put it into each of the window manager pets if not. I think maybe to leave it to give people the idea about trying different window managers...

Wait. wait. What am I doing. I am not listening to myself. What did I say, we had not had any problems with Openbox. Well, it's too late.

ttuuxxx, Did you say you had a Theme button in 2.14X? Is that something we could borrow? Is it a button in the taskbar that will automatically change Background and JWM Theme? People might enjoy having 7 or so themes available with one-click.

Oh, they would need, jwm theme, gtk theme, background, and icon set. Or maybe someone could make a nice gui that could change all of those things at the same time so people could more easily do mix and match and trial and error. Well, I guess people could do it now by starting 4 programs Wink Ah, with some presets for built in themes. Dream on. Maybe next time. Has zigbert already done this?

The one in 2.14X basically is a GUI for the actual apps, It didn't work on puppy 5.2 So I made one. Basically it sits on the desktop. You might want to add the desktop icon switcher to it.
ttuuxxx

ps just install it and restart X server.

It seems to be lobster proof
Not only did it work very easily
but on first run it reset my inadvertently deleted trash icon
AND worked with Openbox (I would be quite happy to only have JWM incidentally)

It reset to default settings (such as my background image)
but changing is so easy I was not bothered.

Would it be easy to create a button that opened
/usr/share/backgrounds/
called 'drag n' drop backgrounds'
for personalised wallpapers?

Well done ttuuxxx
hope we can have this in 241? Smile

Hmmm...
I installed this, and restarted x server.
jwm-themes-1 showed up in the PPM, but I couldn't see any sign of it anywhere else.

Restarted Luci-241 without saving the session [pupsave used is on a partition on a Flash Drive].

What to do now?

Subject description: jwm-themes-1.pet
 

Hi playdayz and ttuuxxx,

I just tried jwm-themes-1.pet on my Rewriteable DVD version of 241.

It did not recognize the Save icon which was lost
It did not recognize my only shortcut icon which was lost
It repositioned the Trash icon.

It (v. 1) does have its own attractive desktop icon and it is user-friendly, but if anyone has their own 'offbeat' set-up then they need to expect unexpected changes.

My regards

Is Flash working?
Since using 5.2
I have been able to run longer Youtube videos
to be on the safe side I reverted to 3.6.6 of Firefox
rather than the betas

This has updated and also I tried the update facility
for plug ins and upgraded flash

So I am using 3.6.12 of Firefox
and Flash 101 r102

It mostly works, then after half an hour
the sound goes and the video jumps through
- missing many frames

Oh boy - anyone else? Any solutions?

Despite having NOT saved the session at any time [neither during the session, nor at shutdown]...

Next time I booted into Luci-241 using the pupsave on the Flash Drive...
jwm-themes-1 was there and functioning. Very Happy
Though it isn't listed in the PPM lower window. Confused

Doesn't appear to offer any addition themes so far as I can see. Sad

hi guys basically to add any Icon to the desktop you have to alter the desktop layout, So jwm-themes-1.pet goes off the original desktop layout and adds 1 new icon to the original layout, It you have altered the layout from the default layout that came with the 5.2 it will revert it back to the original state and you'll have to add/delete what ever changes that you made to the layout that it originally was. And no it doesn't give you any new themes, its just a easy way to get to alter look and feel of the desktop.

Hi Lobster that's already part of the background setter, click the backgrounds icon on the Themes gui, then open the background setter, you'll see an icon called Filer
That will open your backgrounds folder.

It could - I will x4 it from 50MB to 200MB and see if that makes a difference.

Ttuuxxx
thanks for treating me like an idiot
always well deserved

and dropped into the filer directory

Me like Smile
