i hope this is usefull and i hope that it is good place to post my hint, i've change rox script (usr/local/bin/rox) in my Slacko 5.3.1 because when i wanted to get to file download folder in Seamonkey Download Manager with old rox script i've got message that there is no file or folder file://root/...

i've changet it to:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
exec /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filler/AppRun ${@#*file://}


so now it working with Seamonkey too[/code]

Restart Xserver
(Sometimes I get that with Lucid or Slacko, but not with Saluki)

I've uploaded the HardInfo Report for my brother's Celeron 633 setup. It appears to be using the rt2800pci driver for the wireless card, will double-check when the extra memory has arrived and been fitted.

PostPosted: Thu 19 Apr 2012, 13:14    Post subject: A few nitpicks about Slacko  

Environment: 8 puplets on flash drive includes slacko-5.3.27; frugal install, P4, 512Mb RAM, Intel board,

As much as I like slacko it will have to take 2nd place to wary-5.290 and lupu-5.2.8-04 because of 3 factors:
1. Seamonkey/Composer does not seem to be a preferred browser. The evidence: just about every browser except seamonkey is in PPM and/or available from slickpet's Internet Pets; an extremely old version is in PPM (5.3.1). So, the version available will consistently be older than what is currently available from mozilla.
2. Three of my favourite pets used in lupu, ThreadGet, ClipGrab and emelFM2, are unavailable Guess I'll have to learn how to make a pet Smile if I want these and the latest seamonkey in my slacko.
3. edpview is pathetic as a pdf viewer - limited header (minimize, restore & close), not even an about, no zoom, no paging; PDF Viewer in wary is considerably better.

This is either my 2nd or 3rd time attempting to post to the forum. Hope I got it right this time. Embarassed

Seamonkey is the default browser in all Slacko's I have produced and I have made a point of including the latest version at the time of release, a compilation against Slacko libs to reduce size. There are numerous scripts around to get you the latest seamonkey install from the official seamonkey site.

As for the other apps, I a haven't the time to chase them all up Sad .. if someone does that and the apps test favourably then I can most certainly include them or add them to the repo.

puppy_apprentice,

I have added your snippet for the next beta, due shortly, just running some tests and fine tuning.

-

Shinobar,

I didn't take a good look, but does pupsaveconfig allow for user to use fido? Not a big issue as I believe fido is still problematic.

-

futwerk,

Thanks again for your cool designs Smile

In ~/.xinitrc there is a commented section to restart rox desktop if it doesn't start first go.. can you uncomment it and report back please?

Couple of niggles:
Seems to have become tradition to stick folks into an overdriven 1600x1200 resolution for less common video chipsets, eg SiS. Some developers have mastered this glitch.
DCHP didn't connect automatically.
FlashPlayer wasn't auto-loaded.
The disc eject on poweroff snatched the disc back before I could lift it out!
Otherwise, as nice as ever and entirely competent.

Hmmm.. ok, that seems to be a bug of the "eject" command and an OHS issue (only occurs with some hardware), will do what I can.


My SIS boots to a perfect desktop with sis driver, I wonder if it's hardware mismatch? If not please point to a post where this is fixed and I'll do what I can with that too.

Forgot to mention it but this old Nvidia box booted straight to the correct 1440x 900 resolution.
Now on to the important stuff........ eye candy. Laughing

Used the regular Conky-1.8.0-Lucid pet and jemimah's Conkyswitcher-rox-0.02.pet http://www.smokey01.com/jemimah/misc/conkyswitcher-rox-0.02.pet plus some missing libs.Installed Conky in Slacko so many times I kept them saved...see screenie.

I reckon sage that 01micko has been playing around with
Windows machines too much lately,
while furthering his computer studies at tech????.

Gone to the dark side and forgotten the basics.

I better download though as a test before he phones me.
A shocking bloke.

Gooday Mick....Chris.
