Not a bug but the way things work in Lucid 5.2 having 2 window managers available to use. (Openbox or JWM)
I have read many problem posts that deal with the same problem.
Using the wrong program to change desktop settings and not seeing the changes.

At initial start Lucid 5.2 uses Openbox and Fbpanel for the desktop.

For setting changes:
menu->desktop->desktop settings->
Openbox-window manager config
Fbpanel-configuration

If you change to JWM with X-WM switcher:
menu->desktop->desktop settings->
JWM configuration


You can get some very good add on programs with this package
http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/PupComboPlus-1.1-Lucid.pet

If you download and install, use PupControl-panel
It will auto detect what window manager you are using and only provide the proper configuration programs to use.
They will be in:
PupControl->settings->Window Manager Settings.

I am not sure

I see a time lag when starting apps compared to previous version

And it would be nice if someone can create a DNS change app and integrate it with PuPapplaucher

How much of a lag?
How are you running Lucid Puppy?
All apps in general or specific ones?

Once I run the app, example, Firefox, for the first time after boot, it takes some times, but after i shut down firefox and restart, it is fast

I am on a full install

chrismt, do you mean shutdown firefox, and restart firefox or restart the computer?

If you are simply restarting firefox it will load much faster as firefox will still be loaded in the memory cache.

Fbpanel-Configuration responds well and work alright.
JWM-configuration, however, does not stick no matter what!
I am frugal installed with a safe file size of 1GB.

I have already this installed as well. But still JWM configuration does not stick.
When i switch to JWM, it has a witdth covering only 1/3 of the screen width. I have not been able to make this to a full width either.
Any other solutions?

Are you saying the desktop only covers 1/3 of the monitor screen?

No Bugs to report yet. Updated 5.1.1 frugal to 5.2 (with crossed fingers Smile )

I installed Opera 11 this way http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/cant-install-opera-in-mepis-11-a-854653/#post4216773

Using Netsurf as default browser (I am used to it)



No damage done. Kept my pianobar install. Not much in /temp/(was it upgrade folder? Can't remember right now since reboot) that I had to deal with. Installed recommends pets in 1st post. Thanks BigPup, for coaching for frugal update (yeah, I backed up pupsave in AntiX). So far so good. Sorry I can't post a bug yet.

Screeny pretty much tells it all. Just adjusted Openbox and fbpanel taskbar a little.

After many days of trying to set up the internet I finally managed it, using a belkin f5d8053 and a 2wire telstra australia wifi modem. Now I am struggling to add raw support to gimp.
By the way I am a newbie to linux but have over 20 years of experience with PC's I love the distro and 50 years with a camera Very Happy

PostPosted: Sun 23 Jan 2011, 11:04    Post_subject: clock analog clock skin keeps disappearing  

Frugal install of 5.2, pwidgets 2.2.7 and pwidgets extras 2.2.4 on Toshiba Satellite A25-S207. Clock keeps going away, comes back if I go to the pwidgets control panel and just hit apply again. I haven't timed it but it seems like if I go away for an hour or 2 it's gone. It only happens with the lappie.

Edit: Just realized I have an old version of pwidgets and extras Embarassed , installed 2.3.2 and 2.3.0 respectively, will see what happens.

Edit 2: Gone again. Found this at the bottom of xerrs.log:

There are a couple of versions of gimp available in Quickpet and the Puppy Package Manager. Maybe one has raw capability.

You could also search the forums for Additional Software--there is a search link up at the top of the forum pages.

Here's another one to try.

You might want to post this in the pwidgets forum.

PostPosted: Mon 24 Jan 2011, 01:21    Post_subject: Degradation since 246 Beta?  

Some differences comparing Lucid Puppy 5.2 to the 246 beta.

With 5.2 when I plug in a USB flash drive the activity light on on the drive flashes twice a second for forever. With 246 it flashes for 15 seconds then stops. In both cases the drive is unmounted. With 5.2 the flashing stops if I mount the drive but returns when the drive is unmounted.

With 246 I can install Puppy to a flash drive without the iso file using the universal installer. With 5.2, the iso file is required. This is inconvenient on netbooks lacking an optical drive.

Computer specs please.
How you are running Lucid Puppy.

Lucid 5.2 full install
I am not seeing all this flashing of the drive light. Are you running stock Lucid 5.2 with no drive mount add on program?

How are you installing without using the Lucid Puppy 5.2 ISO file? The ISO file is what you download to get Lucid Puppy.
