To get mhwaveedit to launch retrovol as the audio mixer
I have been successful in compiling mhwaveedit with
the option
Code:
./configure --with-default-mixerapp=retrovol


This would be a convenience to users.

Of course the preference file can be set by the user to launch
retrovol which is what I have done.

I am using luci233

I was successful in installing newest wacom driver
and using my Wacom Bamboo tablet.

Both Gimp 2.6.8 and mtpaint 3.31 responded to pressure
of pen.

I would like to understand and resolve the touchpad issue.

1. Do I understand correctly that if the computer is auto configured then the synaptics touchpads work correctly?

2. If xorgwizard is run then the touchpads do not work and flsynclient gives an error?

What happens if someone tries to use flsynclient in case #1 above?

Shinobar, do I gather from below that changing some code in xorgwizard will eliminate case #2? If w2e change that code does the problem go away?

Shinobar, does your pet which has been referred to handle both cases? If so why don't we put it into the distro?

What I would like is the solution that is most transwparent to users and *works* every time.

Everyone please help me understand. Thank you.

Regarding touchpad, well known what happens:


At the first run, the touchpad works.
Running xorgwizard disables the touchpad.
Flsynclient can recover, but it shows error before running xorgwizard. It cause confusion for the users.

The fault of the xorgwizard regarding the touchpad is 2 lines.
Curiously, 1 of 3 types of touchpad is enabled.
Code:
# grep MaxTapTime /usr/sbin/xorgwizard
        Option "MaxTapTime" "180"\
   Option "MaxTapTime" "0"\
   Option "MaxTapTime" "0"\

The first one is Elantech touchpads, code add by Jemimah.
But old two, Synaptics and Alps are remained disabled.

Japanese team are aware of this situation from years ago and all enabled in the Japanese editions.

I am dense today I guess don570, but someone mentioned this and I checked and the retrovol mixer controls the volume output from mhwavedit (as is). The mixer is already "launched" as it is in the sytem tray, isn't it? So what else is needing to happen. I will try your pet and see. Thanks.

OK, I see. You want it to Launch Retrovol with the button for Launch Mixer. Got it.

Also don570, we are using the ubuntu binary of mtpaint 3.31.. Would there be any advantage to using one of the later versions you mention--that would outweigh possible disadvantages Wink

Concerning ayttm and our search for a lean full-featured chat client.

That's a tough one.

The original purpose of ayttm was to give a connection to the puppy chat line for help with Puppy. It still does that. Has anyone ever used that capability?

Do enough people use a "full-featured chat client" to justify our search? We have Pidgin in the PPM for those who chat. Install it once and it is there forever.

So right now, I am inclined to leave ayttm with its original purpose in mind.

Comments?

In fact there is an updated Pidgin 2.7.3 posted just a couple of messages below here.


------------------------------------------------------------------

We will move to a feature freeze soon, no hurry, but when 01micko moves from beta on Quickpet and shinobar is satisfied with the firstrun dialog. So if you have requests, now's the time!

Hi playdayz,

Recently I asked why - if I run Lucid Puppy 5.1 from the standard live CD and then run Htop my RAM usage displays as only 40 MB.

Bruce B kindly replied it is because Htop does not do the math correctly. This also seems to be the case with Widget RAM reporting.

Now I know the reason it is no longer of personal concern, but it may be generally helpful if all or any programs which misreport Puppy RAM could be amended without undue effort.

My regards

A newbie simple question.
How do I know what window manager is being used at initial start?

Hi playdayz

For me on an Hp550 with I think a Synaptics touchpad, then after the current "first run" FlSynchclient crashes unless xorgwizard is run from the command line.

Until FlSynchclient can be run, the touchpad is configured incorrectly - its too sensitive to double clicks and the scroll bar doesn't work.

Hope this helps
Cheers
Peter

Ask. In luci-233 it is openbox with the fbpanel. It does look like jwm doesn't it?

There is a new updated pet of Pidgin 2.7.3 in the PPM. Here is a link

Well said, so we need to make it possible to run flsynclient. You are able to, right, and get it configured--it's just a hassle. You can run xorgwizard and then flsynclient and get it configured, is what I mean. Thanks.

We would just like flsynclient to run right off.

Got it in one....

FlSynchclient running correctly after first run is the requirement.

I think wary and dpup have this solved - maybe ask them howto?

Thanks
