I've decided to get back on the saddle and work on another puplet..well not a brand new one.
I felt that I had left SolidPup sort-of unfinished, so I decided to work on it some more.
This will probably be the final release for version 5.1.1. It should be ready in a couple weeks. There will be a lot of changes.

The final version is not yet complete, but I decided to upload a beta version for users to try.
There have been many changes to the previous release, including updated apps, themes and under-the-hood stuff.

The default window-manager is Icewm with Openbox + Fbpanel as an alternative.
I still want to add some more things..a few wifi drivers, some more updates, and I want to replace fbpanel with tint2.
Abiword and Gnumeric are out, but I've added Get-GnomeOffice, which installs them easily.
Also, Get-Internet Apps allows you to install the latest, Flashplayer, Firefox, Opera, and/or Seamonkey.

enjoy! Wink

If anyone by chance downloaded the nvidia driver from the link on the first page, which I changed yesterday...my apologies, it linked to the wrong driver. I have posted a new link now, and confirm that it works for my Nvidia GT 240.

I just updated Flashplayer to version 11.1.102.55.
If you're in the new SolidPup, just go to Get Internet Apps in the menu and select flashplayer.

It will download and install over the old flashplayer automatically.

To see your current installed version, go here.

Hi Tman

Using SolidPup now - luv it - really smooth and very nicely put together.

Still getting familiar with everything - but so far, all looks good.

In fact - 1st impressions - absolutely fantastic.

Running manual frugal to sda5 ext2 and a 500mb swap partition.
Booting via grub4dos.

10yr old Acer laptop - TravelMate 243LC
256mb ram, 2.5Ghz celeron proc.

Many thanks for this and very best regards - Ray

Thanks Ray, Smile

If anyone notices any bugs, please let me know. I will try to fix whatever ones I can find before the final release. I found 2 so far..Rox freezes when exploring the /proc folder (Thunar is OK) , and I forgot to remove the old get-flashplayer portion inside of delayedrun.

I haven't compiled any wifi drivers yet, so I will have to do some research first.

Very nice puppy. I'm glad to see that you have avoided
Wary 5.2 which I find buggy.

Here are some suggestions:

1) Add a link named 'top' connected to htop

2) Add a link named 'nicoedit' so that scripts that use
nicoedit (such as dir2pet) will open with some texteditor

3) Some Rox Filer Bookmarks would be nice.
Just make a file called
/root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/Bookmarks.xml

I took these from pemasu's Exprimo

Code:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<bookmarks>
  <bookmark title="/">/</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/etc">/etc</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/etc/init.d">/etc/init.d</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/etc/rc.d">/etc/rc.d</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/etc/xdg">/etc/xdg</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/mnt">/mnt</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/mnt/home">/mnt/home</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/tmp">/tmp</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/usr">/usr</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/usr/bin">/usr/bin</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/usr/local">/usr/local</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/usr/local/lib/X11">/usr/local/lib/X11</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/usr/sbin">/usr/sbin</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/usr/share">/usr/share</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/usr/share/applications">/usr/share/applications</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/usr/share/backgrounds">/usr/share/backgrounds</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/usr/share/doc">/usr/share/doc</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/usr/X11R7/bin">/usr/X11R7/bin</bookmark>
</bookmarks>



My program Quick Launch can use these Bookmarks.

4) Bacon Recorder should be installed.

You should check psnapshot

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=396231517&t=70996

It integrates everything together, but it
needs a folder called 'Screenshots' in
/root/puppy-reference

Ooops I am way behind everybody else Smile
Too late almost.

I share this surprise.
Quote:
desktop icons needed double clicking . . .
Why? (OK I think I know why)


Oh that is very bad. I am too old to be able to get anything going
using double click. My fingers fail to do such fast repeating of movement.

So how do I change it to single click .

I know how to in Rox but does Ice have Rox?

Okay I test it before I go to bed or tomorrow.

nooby,

In my latest release, I have reset rox and thunar for single clicking...it is the puppy way,
But if you are in another pup and want to change it, it's not that hard...
In Rox-Filer, right-click in the window and choose options. Actually, I'll just add some screenshots.
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words...

1st pic is for single-clicking inside of the ROX-Filer windows...and the 2nd pic is for single-clicking of icons on the desktop.

This is not an insult...I urge you to experiment. If you break puppy, just reboot in clean mode or in another pup and remove your savefile.
I always keep a backup copy of my save file. There were so many times I broke Windows...but that's how I learned how to fix it.
Same thing goes with Puppy. A lot of the stuff you learn by trial and error. Don't be afraid..if you don't try, you don't learn.
I recommend you fool around with the software and not be afraid.

One exception would be. don't try flashing the bios if your scared of the consequences.
I have flashed my bioses several times with success, but one time I bricked one of my computers..Sad
but I built it out of cheap parts anyway. And after, I built a better one. Smile

Thank You for the suggestions.

Yes I noticed this and got happy about it.


I know that you have great support from Jemimah
she loves the double click too.

and maybe there are others.

Re your Solid Pup. I know too little and are too lazy now
to report anything. I booted it and it worked so nothing
wrong at all. Just me being too lazy.

I already have all the other puppies so me spoiled indeed.

I found a big bug last night and it was still on my mind this morning when I woke up at around 8:30am,
that I couldn't get back to sleep. I think I might be getting a little too obssessed with this..lol.
I'm a night owl and usually sleep in till at least 10:00am.

Anyways, I hacked the Get-Internet Apps at the last minute before uploading it and now I have discovered a problem with it.
Dowloading and installing the packages are fine, but when you try to uninstall them, it looks like everything worked, according to Puppy Package Manager, but the packages are still there.

So I reverted back to the older install script, which is used for Get GnomeOffice.
To uninstall your pets correctly in PuppyPackageManager, there are 2 ways:

Method1: If you have a copy of the downloaded pet, just reinstall it and uninstall it again in PuppyPackageManager.

Medthod2:: Install the attatched patch, re-download and install the Internet App, and uninstall it in PPM.

I was also going over some of don570's suggestions...ROX bookmarks is a nice touch so I added it.
Also made a link for top and nicoedit as suggested. There are already 2 snapshot utilities included, but I'll try psnapshot later along with bacon recorder.
Also modified the delayedrun script.

Okay, I think I can rest easy and take a snooze for another hour. Smile

Thanks to the early-birds for testing this beta release.

Edit: I did not fix the uninstall option for flashplayer. Even though it's a bug, I kinda like it that way cause the install appears more seemless and flashplayer doesn't really need to be removed. When you upgrade, the new flashplayer will overwrite the old one anyway.

Firefox 8 seems to run great on my system, without problems of freezing as reported elsewheres in the forum. Maybe it was the automatic upgrade that was the problem.

Sigh, in my haste this morning, I made the patch and didn't test it before uploading. I found that I didn't add in any variables for Seamonkey so wget doesn't know where to find it. The patch has been reuploaded...I actually tested it this time, so to the 4 people who already downloaded the patch, please download the new one...sorry.

Is it me or is the forum taking extra long to update messages today?

You shouldn't use psnapshot, just look at the scripts.
In particular mtpaintsnapshot.sh has been modified so that
that it has a default folder----> Screenshots.

I suggest that you modify your version of mtpaintsnapshot.sh
to do the same thing.
