do you use the app-dirs?

what errors do you get when you try and copy them?

Might be a union/rox quirk

Yes. Only today I created yet another for Libre 4.2.3 so that all the config and application files/libs are all within the app-dir (portable Libre that can be opened up with all changes preserved (persistence) even when booting using different versions of Puppy). I'm tending towards having a very small boot CD - that boots to a lean desktop, and have all the other extra's loadable via app-dirs.

However no longer a problem as I tried a reboot and all went well thereafter.

I guess with all the trying things out the messing around it probably caused some kind of lock that the reboot cleared. The test file (app) was a compress PET and maybe I kicked it off in the background and it might have been running waiting for a input, but not visible (I guess I should have had a look around with ps, but I didn't think to do that).

No matter what, the reboot fixed the problem. Razz

Just playing around now. Setting up one desktop with nearly empty pup_rw (banking mode with brand new version of Puppy and Firefox each time), another for office - different desktop background and apps loaded, another for multimedia (yet another desktop background, icons and set of apps) and jumping between each 'savefile' version within seconds using the exit X, run script, xwin restart.

Really neat! Most impressed.

Compression is slower to create (make a snapshot) than to restore (switch to a snapshot). So either way (copying as-is or using compression) seems to work as equally as well as each other AFAICT. Getting late however so I'll look to firm up the scripts etc another day. Off to have a beer to celebrate. Thanks yet again.
