The .pets for both the Silk-3 and Mystery-1 themes are now in the macpup 525 folder on my macpup page. Enjoy !!! You will need one of these themes to see the stuff for the new clock. Older themes still work great but they dont have that calendar. I will explain tomorrow when I upload it. Still Testing.

Here is the new clock. It installs like a macpup update for e17 . First download and save the .pet. Don't install it yet. Open the exit menu and switch to JWM. Now install the .pet . Wait a few seconds after install and open the shutdown menu and switch back to e17. The reason this .pet and the update .pets need to be installed this way, is because macpup has a real attitude with stuff getting over written when its in use.

To access the calendar ,left click on the clock face. To make it go away left click on the face again. If you are using a older theme you will still get the new box but without the calendar. If you switch to digital, the clock will disappear .left click where the clock was and you will get the settings panel back to change it to analogue. I will be updating themes as I go as I work on lite . Enjoy!!!

PostPosted: Wed 06 Jul 2011, 17:35    Post subject: macpup 525 firewall settings
Subject description: macpup 525 how to turn off and on firewall
 

Hi,
I was able to setup the firewall OK.
And get the firewall icon on the I-bar OK.
When I right-click on the icon, I don't get any change or choices?
I can not figure out how to turn it on and off temporarily in macpup 525?
I installed a toggle firewall pet found in the forum, but instructions are only for JWM, not E-17.
Can you show me a way to turn off firewall temporarily while I download and upload torrents? The more detailed your answer, the better.
Especially if there are simple ways. Very Happy
Many thanks for a great pup. Smile

Link to firewall toggle pet here
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=65205&sid=20489912102587646aa7949ea478cf1f
Problem solved!
I found the toggle icon in Ibar applications and it works!
I can now turn off and on at will with a simple click on the icon, then check a box in the pop-up. This is great stuff.
Just install this pet, then-
I just right clicked on an "open area" on the Ibar near any of icons.
Go to Gadget Ibar --> contents
Applications
Scroll down to Firewall Toggle
click on Add + bar
click Apply, then Close
The icon appears like a "chemistry flask" marked fluid
Click on the icon in the Ibar and you get the dialog box with options.
Now I can really feel good about the firewall settings. Shocked
Many thanks for such a great macpup 525, I love everything about it. Very Happy

Subject description: firewall toggle pet works great firewall icon status is a dud
 

Hi runtt21,
Tested ports in Transmission and the firewall toggle pet works perfectly in macpup 525. Smile
Port is open when firewall toggle is off and closed when toggle is on.
Just as it is supposed to be.
This will allow me to share my torrents by turning off the firewall "at will" then turn firewall back on again.
Each time I reboot everything goes back to default firewall toggle "on"
and the firewall is "on" by default. So if I forget to turn firewall on, it is on when I restart my computer!

Could not get the firewall status icon to work at all though.
So I just removed it from the Ibar.

The toggle icon works good with pop-up box toggle.
This is great control.
Looks like I will be using only Macpup 525 since it does everything I need to do and is so cool! Wink Laughing

I talk to Prit several times a week. He doesn't come around here very much cause He and the Mrs. just had a little one. Things are "busy" at his house right now.

PostPosted: Mon 11 Jul 2011, 07:54    Post subject: AntiMacPup
Subject description: running puppylinux on Mac
 

The workings on getting a version of normal looking puppylinux running on mactel hardware is almost ready for alpha release. The name AntiMacPup is not that I think bad or anti this release put to point out that it is the opposite idea of MacPup. OSX is nice but I feel more at home in default puppylinux.
Ideally this AMP will fit in the unused EFI boot space found in all macs. Early testing of booting from EFI is better then expected. It boots directly into Grub2 without using Macs flaky boot chooser. So once all the correct kernel support is added for EFI it will boot cleanly like a frugal install.

Intel MAC again, not ppc, e.g. G4/G5 series, I presume?

When are we going to see puppy support for ppcmac?
