Rox right clicks updating is exhaustive work. I give 10000 points for don570 of his splendid job with them. I am so accustomed to them that Puppy without them feels barebones.


Although I appreciate all of the work that has been put into Rox right-clicks, whenever I encounter a situation, where Rox right clicks does not offer the app that I need, I just modify the Open With menu.
Just right-click on a specific file and choose customise. A folder will open up for you, then you just drag symlinks of .desktop files or scripts to that folder, and rename those symlinks to whatever you like. I find it much easier.

Tman. That is an option for individual tuning. And nice to have reminder of it also. Anyway...they are not right clicks. They are right-left clicks Very Happy
And there is no file format association. You have same right-left click for every situation. Yeah...I know. To have rox right clicks for every possible application and checking mechanism, which checks if the application is really present...and show only those choices which are available. That would be something.

That is true; I have modified Rox right-click myself, but for apps that use various extensions, eg. document viewers, pic viewers, mediaplayers, I find it much easier to add them to the Open With menu. Guess I'm a bit lazier than you in that regard.

Edit. I believe that Slacko has accidentally 2 versions of tar. Anyway just the tar binary and symlink for its version number works fine with Extract-txz in Exprimo.


The Slackware package for tar contains tar-1.13 along with tar-1.26. The pkgtools rely on certain quirks in tar 1.13 to work properly, and generally will be the only thing using it.

pemasu - if you wanted packages ... here they are. Lots of them, all built automatically and extra small Wink

This includes Firefox, Pidgin, Abiword, Gnumeric and all the other big applications we love and appreciate Smile

1000000 thanks Iguleder. I surely start to inspect them. And most highly will use them. Really great.

pemasu, here are my latest files used to build the puplet I'm working on now.

It includes three things, the Woof I used (vanilla from yesterday), the Woof files plus a custom script I wrote for Woof and my build kit.

My custom script takes all repositories Woof already processed in 0setup and keeps only the first match of each package, so you can order repositories by priority and Woof picks the right packages on its own. This way, I added the Debian Backports repository before the Debian repository of my country - I get maximal download speeds and packages in the main repository are replaced with their Backports replacement automatically, without having to hack Woof to have support for this.

The build kit was used to build all packages I uploaded previously.

EDIT: OMFG, a show stopper! It seems that the Squeeze backports repository lacks xserver-xorg-input-kbd and xserver-xorg-input-mouse; both depend on packages that don't exist in Squeeze at all, so X starts but you can't use the keyboard or a mouse.

I wrote build scripts for both and built the latest versions on top of a Squeeze base, against the Squeeze backports X and now it works. This isn't hacky, because I just build a package missing in the repository. Smile

I installed both on a testing build that had the non-responding keyboard and mouse issue, now it works. I'm rebuilding my puplet with both at the moment - if it works, I'll upload it Very Happy

pemasu, I have been having trouble getting my little netbook to record sound.

It's an Asus 1015PEM. I had previously tried Puppeee and Lucid-528 without success.

Your 5X8 worked OOTB. Wireless, broadcom, and recording.

Very happy me.

Psip 1.2 also works very well on it.

Thanks again, and to Iggy too.

Just loaded on two laptops ... smooth install!

Notes:

1. I tried to import the savefile from 4.9.9.1 and the update app ran but there were apparently settings in that savefile which were incompatible as it created some weird anomalies - so I deleted it and rebooted - everything was good.

2. I loaded the Seamonkey PET, again smooth load. I then symlinked my "portable" Seamonkey folder to the /.mozilla folder, edited profiles.ini accordingly, and everything (Address Book, Bookmarks, old E-mails, etc.) were picked up fine.

3. Skype (Beta) also loaded fine on the Netbook on which I had previously reported a successful load of 5X8.

4. LibreOffice also worked fine on the Netbook - I am about to try it on this old Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 laptop.

Thanks again for a real solid Puplet!
