Great OS. For me the best puppy ever. Screenshot running Hugin Panorama creator. The fact you have more control on the desktop compensates for the slight performance hit. It is a tad slow on my P4 1.8ghz 512mb box Crying or Very sad

Hi Stowpirate !

You can try Mate, it's a fork of Gnome 2, and it is more light. Smile

Downloading it now Very Happy

Puppy is great as you only have to drag and drop the contents of iso into a folder, edit the boot file and you have a new OS to try. I must also look at the LXDE version.

I haven't tried this, but based on the screenshots it doesn't seem at all like the GNOME I know.

GeNOME with the MATE desktop is cool though.

@ mini-jaguar : This does not look like a Official Gnome because I installed MintMenu. Smile There is therefore a bar.

Salut,
C'est magnifique!

However I do have 2 things to say.

1) If you can manage to make Gnome 3 work in slacko you will be my hero. I tried for a while but got some errors I've never heard of before and wasnt able to make it work.

2) Is there anyway you can bundle all your gnome work together into a compressed file so that I can see what steps you took to make it work with slacko so I can hopefully manage to follow your steps and port Gnome 2.32 to the 64 bit releases (fatdog and lighthouse)

My goal is not only to be able to port gnome2 to those 64 bit distros but be able to make an SFS so that anyone could load it simply and eaisly into those pupplets.

Hi. I got tired of new ubuntu after upgrading from 10.04 lts all the way to 12.04. So I decided to install something lightweight and then I saw this thread. :d
So I installed it and it's great and all but unfortunately I can't access some system settings such as user manager (or something like that) and network manager, so the system is pretty useless without configuring these things.
I got CONFIGURATION FILE COULD NOT BE LOADED error.
Any idea how to fix it?

Most puppies are not multi-user capabile. you'd have to check the forums and find out if the version of slacko this is based on is multiuser.

Very nice! C'est tres magnifique!

...I think I got that right. I can type a little French, but my attempts at speaking it are something else entirely Wink I have the condition of being American, and it is not always desireable Laughing

Moving on. This is a very nice Puplet ("le puplette"?) but I am having some small difficulties, in particular with the Connection Manager. It appears that a "wag-profiles.sh" file is missing, and this prevents the Complex Network Setup (Barry's / Dougal's / "Classic" Network Setup) from working. A pity, as it is my preferred network setup utility. Attempting the "Frisbee" option results in the request to install a package for the 2.4 *beta* version.

It would also be nice to have Chromium, Firefox, or another popular browser (no offense, but Dillo does not qualify) in addition to QtWeb. While I dearly love QtWeb, there are several sites I rely on (for example, Yahoo! Mail) which will not permit it to be used. Perhaps they are simple-minded, but I still use them.

One last thing... perhaps this is the "arrogant American" in me... I realize this is a French puplet ("une puplette de Français"?), however, once the keyboard and locale have been switched to English, some things remain in French. I suspect I can fix this myself with some searching and some typing, but it would be nice if I didn't have to do that.

Except for those small issues, this is a truly splendid puplet, and I thank you greatly for it!

In fact, as mentioned here, I am looking for a Puplet which I can use instead of Windows, permanently. I could be quite happy with this one of yours if these small things can be fixed (particularly the network setup and the locale problems. I can add Chrome or Chromium later.)

Hello starhawk ! Smile

Thanks to try it !
I'll rebuild a Gnome 2.32 puplet, without FR locale, and will solve Frisbee issue.
If you want, you can try MATE desktop, a fork of Gnome 2.32. It is here :
http://sourceforge.net/projects/matepuppy/.

I promise, I rebuilt ISO cleaner and without bugs. Smile
