First of all, just to clarify - Guy Dog doesn't ship with ndiswrapper, so don't say it doesn't work well if you don't even have it Laughing

Before you report a bug, check the facts.

Run the update ... with an internet connection. If something with PPM fails - it's an upstream issue in Woof.

I would still have liked a regular menu along with the desktop right click one.


The right name is "JWM's menu".

I never did find the application for finding files on the system in the menu either.


Known issue with Searchmonkey, I'm investigating this at the moment.

Same, checking it out.

Also, I had a black screen for desktop until I clicked on the initial splash message that displayed at the top of the screen. Is that by design?


Yep, by design. Another Woof issue.

If you hate having a desktop background different from the one in XP ... you want me to put XP's wallpaper in Puppy and ilegally distribute it?

No, I actually did not get across what I meant about the wallpaper.
I thought the one in GuyDog looked like the WinXP one and would have preferred it to be something else.
Also, I did not realize I had no internet connection when I clicked Update in Puppy Package Manager.
I know that the problem was that the code in Puppy Package Manager Update should check for a valid working internet connection and abort with a message rather than trying to create some files that end up empty and bork the restarting of Puppy Package Manager.

I point these things out and I am not trying to knock your great derivative. I am only trying to point out things that I think would help in bettering it.
So, to clairify, if I am setting at a prompt outside of X, what do I type to get JWM?
I was used to just typing "xwin jwm".

EDIT: I did not need ndiswrapper, And I assumed wrongly that an internet connection through my card was already set up.
As a matter of fact, when I did run the internet connection wizard, and used SNS (Simple Network Setup), it found my card fine and gave me a working internet connection.

Can you explain how I can change the wallpaper ? 8-bit tried to explain het yikes anything that looks like XP, and wants to differentiate from it.

I am working on a name based logo for Guy Dog 1 version is featured in the newest backgrounds I posted. Here are the 2 variations I have currently but looking to add a pup logo somehow. The black you see is not actually there.

And here I thought it was /usr/share/backgrounds/default.jpg or /usr/share/backgrounds/default.png.

Oh well.

To change wallpaper, you would copy a new background jpg/png file to /usr/share/backgrounds as default.png or default.jpg.
If you like the current backgound image, be sure to copy it elsewhere first to keep it.

Oops, a hurried mistake. I just got home, answering your question was the first thing I did Laughing

It's /usr/share/backogrounds/default.*.

EDIT: I found the cause for the NVIDIA issue! Try to install this package (usr /usr/local/petget/installpkg.sh Wink), then run xorgwizard.

Here is my idea for a name based logo. The 1st one is the main base. The rest are ready to go & have variations in size.

The black you see should be transparent when downloaded.

FML! The new driver doesn't work either, for some unknown reason - it complains about some missing function, although it was built on Guy Dog, which makes it pretty much impossible.

I think we should roll back to the Squeeze X and stop using the backported one - this means X 7.5, very similar to the one from Lucid.

Im not in Guy Dog right now but regarding wallpaper changer / setter - i think this little script should work.



Code:
#!/bin/sh

IMAGES="/usr/share/backgrounds"
feh -g 540x380 -d -S filename "$IMAGES" -A "feh --bg-scale /usr/share/backgrounds/%n"


Change the IMAGES= to what ever directory you like - to look though the wallpapers left click on the image or use the <-- and --> arrow keys, to set the wallpaper as background hit enter - or to set with a different scale right click > file > backgrounds.

Yep the script works great Smile 1 question though. stu90 are there any other options besides scale & center for setting the background? As can be seen in my screener it squishes the image a bit with scale & of course with center it does not fill whole screen.

Hi pacer106,
The options for Feh are - tiled, seamless, scaled, centered.
