Before you report a bug, check the facts.


The two included network setup tools (one of which mostly works Laughing ) both offer to try and setup Windows drivers. That tends to require ndiswrapper.
I just clicked the buttons, There'll be menu entries that point to none existent programs next. This is precious finger time I'm wasting. I could be picking my nose, or poking small children in the eye.
Just a thought....

Hi iguleder, Stu90 & All,

Thanks Stu90 for the Wallpaper chooser, which works fine. However, I wanted to add it to the menu by creating a desktop file in /usr/share/applications. The technique I generally use is to place a script calling the app in /my-applications/bin and identify that script in the desktop file's exec argument. [As the chooser was already a script, I just placed in in /my.../bin]. I've used this technique with several applications for example, opera unpacked to /mnt/home. Some worked, such as opera. Some didn't, such as the Wallpaper chooser. Except as noted below, with regard to those which failed, clicking the script in /my-applications/bin would start the app; while clicking the desktop file in /usr/share/applications wouldn't. Perhaps it's one of the quirks of emelfm2 I don't understand. [The desktop files would not start their respective applications even when permissions were changed to executable by all].
The exception are programs to run under wine. I was able to install Greendome's 1.3.28 pet, and using either wine's task manager or progman "install" an XP program, and thereafter create a functional menu entry via the above technique. But I was unable to configure emelfm2 to recognize the file ending "exe" as something to be opened with wine. Neither was I able to find any way to "install" a portable program under wine. Consequently, in order to run them I had to start wine's task manager and browse to the executable each time.
So I am compelled to ask the questions. It's not that I don't appreciate iguleder's efforts to explore other possibilities. Indeed, I believe they are essential if puppy is to remain both light-weight and functional. And its been (what?) eight years since Barry K decided for some reason on Rox-filer as his file manager of choice. 8 years in computer development, especially Linux development, is an eternity. But how much space is saved by using emelfm2 rather than rox-filer? And what are the advantages & disadvantages each has respecting the other?

Respectfully,

mikesLr

Edit: After a refreshing night's sleep, I seem to be more clear headed and adventurous. It occurred to me that it is "early days" in our exploration of emelfm2: that solutions for some of its quirks have already been found. And Guy Dog, using emelfm2, appears to be much more responsive than Rox-filer. So let's press on.
In any event, the more important challenge to overcome is the difficulty some of us have encountered in the conflict between Guy Dog and our Graphics Cards.

PostPosted: Mon 17 Oct 2011, 22:46    Post subject: Bug in xorgwizard?  

During the X setup I select in turn <probe>, <Test> and <Test_X_Now>.
X does not start and eventually I am returned to <FINISHED>
If I select <Tweak>, <Tweak_xorg.conf> and <Edit_xorg.conf> a dialogue appears which tells me that selecting <OK> will open the editor but instead it returns me to <Test_X_Now>. The VESA driver works OK.

I have noticed this bug in some other puplets.

Iguleder

Thanks for this pup which is great work and a welcome return to Puppy's roots. emelFM2 seems quirky initially comming from Rox but has real merit.

With regard to the distros's name how about:

" PAT THE DOG" Laughing

Thanks once again.

You can find all included applications here. These are the packages built automatically on top of the dpup base - the rest is Debian packages.

EDIT: I'm taking a break from 5.0.1 development, I'm on a vacation and I'm very tired from all those trips across the country.

I decided to do an experiment I wanted to do since long ago - build X automatically. Once I have this, I can also automate the compilation of underlying libraries (e.g libpng) and go all the way down to a minimal base of just a minimal devx with GCC from dpup, with the rest built as a true Puppy.

Here's an improved emelFM2 package, guys. Forgot to upload it previously; delete ~/.config/emelfm2 before you install it.

Experienced users can use just /usr/bin/emelfm2 from this package - it contains the improved file type handling stuff.

mikeslr - sorry for not answering your question previously. emelFM2 is bigger than ROX-Filer, but consumes less memory in many cases, since you need only one window for all tasks, while ROX-Filer needs multiple windows. It also has lots of functionality (e.g archive handling) missing in ROX-Filer.

EDIT: small update - I'm building all the X server libraries at the moment, so far it's working. Once these are ready, Xorg_High and the actual X server will follow. Then I'll just have to build all drivers and here we have the smallest X server in Puppy ever Very Happy

I started working on my own wbar icons. There are only a few so far but here is how they look. Planning on making a complete set for Guy Dogs wbar.

Thanks for the new emelFM2 pet Iguleder. it works great double clicking on pets installs them without any tweaking from me Smile did not do a lot of testing on it though. Double clicking on a picture file did not open in feh like I hoped. I installed viewnior & it opened in it after a double click so I would say all is good to go on the basics Smile
