Thank you! Unfortunately, it works only partially. I have only window buttons in panel. Global-menu doesn't work and there's a message that plugin crushed


I just poked at figuring out the menu - but that is the part that needs ubuntu patches for gtk. Sad

I still think it's somewhat useful without the menu. At least it gets rid of the title bar when windows are maximized which is nice on small screens.

I haven't crashed it yet. What did yours say when it crashed.

Plugin "Global Menu Plugin for XFCE Panel" unexpectedly left the panel, do you want to restart it?

The plugin restarted more than once in the last 60 seconds. If you press Execute the panel will try to restart the plugin otherwise it will be permanently removed from the panel.

That's what I get when adding Global Menu plugin.
Indicator app menu plugin works ( window buttons in panel).
may be it needs qt also ?

Hi Jemimah, pemasu & all;

I tested shinobar's 1.4 & 1.9 and reported results on Shinobar's thread, but had to go out before providing link here to them. See http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=618028#618028. Checking in here, I've discovered jemimah's new sfs-load pet and pemasu's apparent success using it.
I'll test the same.
pemasu, try testing sfses not specifically built for Saluki. Noobs and those running more than one puplet are likely to try to load-unload them. Being able to unload a non-functional sfs is almost as important as being able to load a functional one.

Edit: Tested sfs_load-1.3-saluki.pet with the following: All could be loaded and unloaded without a problem:
gimp-2.6.11.sfs (not from Saluki repo)
google-chrome-stable_12.742.112.sfs
picasa3.sfs
Streamtuner2-2.03.sfs (not from Saluki repo)
LibreOffice-3.5.1-en_us-2.sfs (not from Saluki repo), and
xnviewp-xnconverter.sfs (not from Saluki repo).

With the exception of Streamtuner2-2.03.sfs, all not only loaded and unloaded, but also ran.

PostPosted: Sat 07 Apr 2012, 18:33    Post subject: 2 kernels available - nonPAE and PAE for 32bit Saluki  

This may be the wrong thread to post this, i know. But, I could not think of where else to post this.

Pemasu has done fabulous work for the total PUP community. In SALUKI he has been instrumental with his kernels.

I run a Live media system.

Questions
  • Is there a way that the Live media (cd/dvd) could have a boot-time
    Code:
    puppy pfix= ....
    method where the user booting the system could direct the process to boot the non-PAE or the PAE versions for, say, SALUKI18+?

  • Or could Shinobar's method of GRUB4DOS on the booting Live media allow a selection of either PAE or non-PAE?
I think its obvious how this would be of benefit to the developers and users alike.

Thoughts for the future distros where the distro developers offer both version of a 32bit kernel.

Here to help

Installed pemasu's aufs3-util-saluki-0.0.1.pet and the sfs_load-1.3-saluki.pet, this seems to be a lot better but I still get the occasional lockup when loading a sfs, I'm only able to load 6 sometimes 7 sfs files running on a usb install, I receive an error message like below, but it sometimes will load on a second attempt.

Hi Jemimah,
I thought it'd be appropriate to ask what's up? Been upgrading since 009.
Of course I have an older pc, but I just miss the (018) upgrade cycle.

I get a working mouse pointer (in 018) but clicking (of any kind) produced no menus, etc. Thanks all, for the fast Puppies.

This is my fault. I created some loop devices with the wrong permissions. If you go into /dev and delete loop11-loop20 everything should work as expected. I will fix it for the next release.

Hmm, I really didn't change anything major between 17 and 18. Does your md5sum check out? Maybe it's just a bad download or a bad installation.

It's good w/new dnld. Orig dnld was oddly very slow.

PostPosted: Sat 07 Apr 2012, 22:39    Post subject:  Saluki 18 found a problem and found a fix.  

Pupradio worked in all the releases 16 and before. However, it would not even open in 17 or 18.
I was very sad, So my brother and I fiddled with older versions of pupradio

I got .08 pupradio to work. Looking deeper, I noticed that pupradio was not working with xnoice
which is the default in saluki.

I downloaded mplayer and then made mplayer the default media and music player.
Redownloaded Pupradio, and it opened and started playing!!!!

Not sure what is wrong with xnoise.

Notification settings:
Opacity setting does not work.
It looks the same at 0 as it does at 100.

v.18

Most tasteful boot screen and appropriate desktop wallpaper. However....

no scrolling boot up of dmesg?

pfix=nox didn't work

CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE gave irrecoverable black screen, unable to run xorgwizard blind, either.

No floppy is a very bad idea - I said that before. Without it, there is no simple way to manipulate the BIOS, inter alia. Most good boards still have the pin headers and a BIOS entry. Apart from which, 1.44Mb is still a very large text file. This entire episode was a subterfuge initiated by Dell in league with the devil - the DWIntel cartel to save $5. Besides, every review I've read of Puppy and it's derivatives mention it's prime function for resurrecting old kit. It seems rather pointless using what started out as a liveCD and a Mr-fixit tool on SOTA HW which would be more suited to running RH and guiding probes around Saturn's moons. Dan Dare and Sondar must be turning in their graves, if Treens die, that is.
