Unrar is part of luci. The easiest way to use it is to run Utilities > Xarchieve and open a .rar file in it. Clicking on a .rar file should also open Xarchieve. If that doesn't work, it is probably easily fixed. Just let me know.

Thanks Richard, thought was something like rightclicking.

THANK YOU Playdaz for this outstanding distro. You have done a outstanding job putting this together and you are to be commended for your dedication and hard work on this project.

I hope you will get some rest before taking on another project.

Subject description: Upgraded OK and looks nice, seems to use a lot of ram?
 

Hi,
I was able to upgrade from full install hdd Puppy 525 using the universal installer, pfix=ram and upgrade choice. Everything looks really nice and graphics seem much clearer in 528.
But I noticed that it uses a lot of ram? I have firefox 6.0 and desktop running with no flashplayer site and it is using about 270MB of 2.5 GB on P4 2.8 Ghz Sony Vaio desktop. I have swap file of 2.0 GB and 120 GB Hdd.
With a flashplayer site open in firefox and this forum I am using about 370MB?
Before with same site combo I was only using aroung 200MB?
Does this seem correct? Confused
Is anyone else seeing such a high jump in Ram usage with it?
Thanks

527RC Revert to gnome-mplayer 1.0.3 - cd cache problem in 104


Look forward to spinning this up.. JWM keybindings intrigues me.. I've liked JWM going all the way back in the 2.1x days, but was an immediate convert to ICEwM upon discovering it-- lame as it may sound, the keyboard shortcuts for window manipulation that Windoze uses got engrained in my brain long ago, and can be used to do things quickly and in production quantity way better than any approach I've seen from a Linux. (KDE as a big, sprawling example of new key sequences to learn.. not fun.) For a typist to have to use a mouse all the time to simply close windows or whatever is maddening. Having the 1st letter underlined in each menu pull down is such a relief, meaning you can continue at the keyboard instead of mousing about. So I guess what I'm wondering is, I suppose one still has to separately install the Window Manager Chooser .pet and the IceWm-Lucid519rc{whatever}.pet if one is needing this, such as myself? I'm hoping that the keybindings bit will be enough to go on whereby I can map all the functions to act as IceWm does, so I can be on the same page wares-wise with the mass kennel population in this regard-- I'll post whatever glorious .config file I can forge if this is the case.

Know not of gecko-player, but like I mentioned elsewhere, gnome-mplayer will be the 1st thing I replace -- takes eons to fill a cache & begin play (even when pointed to 127.0.0.1:8000 that's relaying out of streamripper that rips along in the bkgd all the while I'm online (should be instantaneous)) but worse yet it goes looking for artwork on the net (I've yet to figure out where-- guess I need to do ethereal or squid or something) when I'm playing a danged local file. And did I mention you can't change the cache size-- there's one part in the prefs referring to cache but it's unrelated and/or nonfunctional.


But, don't let my whining above deter from my heartfelt thanks for all y'alls work keeping Puppy as solid and functional as it's become!

PostPosted: Thu 11 Aug 2011, 19:23    Post subject: Delta 5.2.7rc to 5.2.8  

Thank you Playdayz for an immense amount of effort. I have been really impressed, not only by your individual effort but also by the way you have harnessed the widely disparate viewpoints and abilities of the forum to make a huge amount of progress, with a minimum of friction. Your diplomatic skills are a huge asset to Puppy, as much so as your technical ones. We can be an unreasonably demanding lot at times,alas, but never unappreciative.

Is it possible to have a 527rc to 528 delta please?

My Right click options package is able to use unrar.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=67013

It is designed for lupu 525 but it worked on luci 268 fairly
well when I tested it.

PostPosted: Thu 11 Aug 2011, 20:05    Post subject: conversion of wave file to mp3  

I've been working on a simple way of
converting wave files
using Rox's right click feature.

I'll eventually put it in my package, but here's
the results so far. I localized it using
Zigbert's method so it's easy for anyone
to convert it to French etc. There is a warning if
the mp3 file already exists.

Cool
Thanks for supporting Lucid
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/puppy526

I have suggested by PM that Larry (playdayz)
has a break and then considers Finlandia aka THD
for an official release.

The feedback has been very positive. Cool

I am using Iron 10 browser with the latest Flashplayer.
I checked with Htop and memory use does seem higher, but not as bad as you.
Mine is around 170MB.
What does show is the Flashplayer plugin going all over the place in using memory. Jumps up and down about every two seconds.
