Here is another terminal to consider. It also needs VTE.
You can add tabs, has right click menu, color change, font size change, session save and open, many extras.

Maybe offtopic, but while your only in beta!

Anyone (hint, Laughing a hint, for our favorite programmer) considered adding a QT Window Manager for the next version (if not this one).

I came across Egg http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/Egg+Window+Manager?content=136862 while perusing qt-apps.org for something else and only 3-4 meg ram footprint.

Considering the number of apps already there and available.....

Very impressive.

regards
scsijon
ps I take it we have a working QT4 pet somewhere for 5.2+?

Here is the Blueheart GTK theme from luci-253. it is the first dark theme I really liked--I think it is very readable. It's too big though to include in the iso when there are good themes that are much smaller.

In quickpet->news
In the play section.

good morning playdayz,

been running 253 for almost a week now, and can happily attest that everything I tried worked so far. Great job!

Now, maybe you can help me understand something concerning Firefox, but it applies to Thunderbird, as well.

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/Firefox-4.0rc1-Lucid.pet

Firefox 4.0 is released . They call it rc1 but it shows 4.0.


you announced a pet for the new FF 4.0. This pet, I assume, will install to /usr/lib the usual way.

Personally I have found that one only needs the tar.gz from the Mozilla website and unpack it to /mnt/home of a frugal install of Puppy. Works for me, for as long as I can remember.

Now here is my question. Apart from the lack of Menu entries, is there any other disadvantage of the /mnt/home installation vs. the /usr/lib installation that I haven't come across, yet?

Thanks for the enlightenment.

No problems doing it your way that I know of.

Google chrome 11 (still in dev) or possibly Chrome 9(last with H264 support) are my default browser, since end 2010, because they satisfy my golden rule and no other browser. Everyday I see more evidence of this:
http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9214022/Google_s_Chrome_untouched_at_Pwn2Own_hack_match


Apparently on the recent Pwn2Own thing the guy that was supposed to be hacking Chrome didn't actually show up (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/03/11/iphone_blackberry_hacked/). Whether this was because Google had fixed the loopholes he was going to exploit or he had an 'unfortunate' Google Maps related accident seems unclear. Wink Quite easy for a browser to survive a hacking contest if nobody tries to hack it. Nobody's tried to hack NetSurf - doesn't make it more secure.

I personally avoid Chrome as I don't particularly trust Google - preferred them when they were just a search engine rather than a 'not evil' megacorporation out to own all info about everyone ever. On Puppy I mainly use Firefox 3 and Opera 11.

Gnumeric I will not even consider it, has a spreadsheet soft in 2011, that can NOT properly handle a .csv test file with 6 cells, it just crap., (Bug reported, confirmed months ago, but still don't wanna fix).


I rarely use CSV files, when I do need to transfer a file between Schema 2 (a spreadsheet on RISC OS) and Gnumeric I usually do it using Excel as the intermediate format, but I am a bit surprised that Gnumeric would have problems. What sort of stuff happens?

The error message has gone . . .

Abiword,Virtual Magnifier Glass and XFE file manager appear to be working OK

I made just for my own purpose from Billtoo`s great compile stripped down xfe. I removed unneeded apps for filemanager functionality and included only xfe-theme. I also preconfigured it to not show root warning, single click opening and I changed the preferred file managing apps to those which are included in Lucid Puppy.

But I thought someone might be satisfied for this preconfigured and stripped down version, so I upload it here.

Luci-254 is now posted in the first message of this thread.

It will be hopefully the last beta before a Lupu-521 rc..

Please test especially the things that have been updated. Please test Guvcview if you have web cam. Thanks.
