Yes, that's what I was doing;Pmount is my default option for mounting drives and partitions in Puppy. Sorry I didn't make that clear.

How are you putting data on the DVD?
With Rox file manager or a specific backup program?

Thanks for asking. I'm using Nero in Windows 7 (on a public machine) as my own DVD burner is a bit hit and miss, although it's OK with CD-Rs.

PolarPup can open the folder on the DVD-R and download it all though so I can't understand why Slacko won't.

I tried to install the printer driver foo2zjs with these packages

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=54297
http://www.datafilehost.com/download-adf850d1.html
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=55219
http://jpeters.net/apps/foo2zjs_2010-11.pet

and none have managed to work my HP LaserJet P1102. I think someone needs to prepare a package to install on slacko this driver. I have installed hplip and other printers are added without problems.

Greetings.

Just to be clear, are we talking about a LaserJet Pro P1102?

I have an HP Laserjet Pro P1102w that I run over USB. Using Slacko 533, I installed the foo2xxx_rcrsn-2012.05.05.pet. My printer is listed in CUPS as "HP Laserjet P1102w Foomatic". It worked fine.

However CUPS also lists a "non-w" model, so I installed it. It also worked.

Do you have this printer working in Windows, or is it brand-new?

rcrsn51 Thanks! Is solved. My mistake was in choosing the name from the list.

Windows? That it is?

Best regards!

I tried downloading the gconf-2.26.0-i486 pets from the Slacko repo and got bad downloads. Can someone please try to download and install them, to confirm? In the meantime, I guess I'll have to compile my own...

That package was meant to be removed Embarassed

Use the Slackware version, you should be able to get it from PPM if Slackware repos are enabled, I'll remove it now.

Thanks

No problem, Mick. I compiled gconf-3.2.3 for those who want it.
( later versions need a newer version of gio )

Hi everyone

Is there a way to have the background pic, icewm theme and the desk icon theme to be link together?

I would like to change the background and have the other themes change automatically.

1. Just bought a new up-to-the-minute-but-low-cost=£245 desktop PC.
[My old PC just powered off, fans stopped, and won't restart]
So far the only Puppy I can get to work [fully?] on the new PC is...
Slacko-5.3.3-4g-scsi
It includes a module for:
eth0 ATILC PCI: Atheros Comm AR8152 v2.0 Fast Ethernet
Hence, I'm able to connect to the web.

2. Wary-5.3 was the only other Puppy to get close to fully working, but didn't include the module named above, so couldn't get on the web.

3. Those that haven't worked:
Dpup-squeeze-5.x.9-scsi
Lupu-528.005 [My number-1 Puppy, but wouldn't even boot]
Luci-001.005
LazYPuppy-202-en

4. I'm downloading Fatdog64-600b1.iso right now.
[taking ages with a FAST PC, and FAST-ish 20Mb/s broadband connection]
This has 64-bit hardware [whatever that means] so I can [and should?] use 64-bit OS's.

5. Guess I should post a separate thread on all my problems, right?
e.g. Cannot get anything to see my 3 PATA HDD's, no matter what I try [OUCH!]
One is in a USB connected external enclosure.
Bought an IDE to SATA adapter, but no go there.
I made a new Slackosave.3fs file on an ext3 partition on the new internal SATA HDD, and Slacko finds and uses that, but...
When I copied the slackosave.3fs file to a "Slacko" folder in the root folder on an ext3 partition on an 8GB Flash Drive...
Slacko doesn't find it, and therefore doesn't use it.
This is a problem, because I want to use GParted to repartition the internal HDD...
And I'd like to work within a Slacko that's using a slackosave file.

Download already completed...
CD-RW burned and booted...

Working in Fatdog now.
fd64save.ext3 made.
What advantages to Fatdog?
It's slower to boot. Sad
User doesn't work as root. Sad
Different to other Puppies.
No PPM.
But Firefox looks good!

One of the great things about Puppy...
There's always SOME Puppies that fit the need. Cool
