Hi Jejy,

Hmm... I've clicked the linked for the Wary.iso and it gives me a page telling me that the file does not exist?

By the way: The Racy-based Checkmate worked wonderfully upon my old computer except for one problem which is a complete show-stopper: It refused to run my versions of Firefox/SeaMonkey/Thunderbird - all which are the very latest binary releases from the Mozilla Foundation. I run them from one partition of my hard drive - linked in to all my other Puppies - both the programmes ( from /opt ) and the profiles ( from /root ) together.

This system has never failed me from Puppy-2.14 to present. This was a show-stopper for me because my current system of doing this permits me to do my email, surf, etc., from any Puppy I wish to use instead of being forced to remain in one Puppy to do my email and such. I think you can see why I enjoy such a system? Wink

At any rate I thought that I would let you know, okie?

I'm likewise looking forward to trying your Mate Desktop should you move that to "Precise", perhaps? I find that a truly beautiful Puppy as well. You've done so much to advance our little distro by leaps and bounds - much like Tux, WhoDo, PlayDayz, Micko, and many more before you. Keep up the fabulous work!

Cheers/Amicalement,

Eyes-Only
"L'Peau-Rouge"

Chrome

I amnot sure where "shinobar's Puppy-chrome" is or what exactly it does, but the only thing necessary to trun chrome is to set the userdir in the startup command. This is the code from the /usr/bin/google-chrome from Google_Chrome-19-slacko.pet. I will provide 20 in a bit.

Code:
exec /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --user-data-dir=/root/.config/google-chrome --disk-cache-size=10000000 --media-cache-size=10000000 --disable-metrics "$@"

I had the same problem with the trash consuming my hard disk so I downloaded emelfm file manager. Navigate to /root/.trash and deleted from there.

BTW I had some problems with SFS and the SFS converter. It wouldn't let me load or drag and drop anything.

Hello !

It's done, SourceForge is back, it was bugged... I did can not upload files...
Wary is here now. Confused

Eyes-Only : I understand, and I am sorry that this does not work properly ...

Precise ? Yeah ok !
Thank you for the comparison, I'm flattered! Wink
Next destination, Precise ! Does it work correctly on your PC?

Thank for tip playdayz, it will help me!

JackWagon : On my laptop, drag & drop never worked... You can right clic on Sfs, & "open with" --> "sfs_load".

Cheers !

oh, I think the problem came when I tried to navigate to another directory/drive and everything was gray’d out. It could be my old hardware.

@Jejy69
slow downloads - consider ftp:// as top level (if your souceforge account allows that), usually lots quicker than an http:// since the transfer protocol is different (nice for dialup users like me and it may help regular dl speeds as well). At my current isp's max transfer rate of ~2.4kbps, a sizeable iso like http://iweb.dl.sourceforge.net/project/checkmatelxde/CheckMate-Racy.iso is an all-day dl Neutral ..

@Eyes-Only
noticed a small typo there (no k in ChecMate-Wary.iso) in the url, maybe? Jejy69's been working fabulous hard Wink

Agree wholeheartedly in not imposing browser (like Mycroftsoft, Sherlock Laughing)! Webkit browsers are fine by me for the basic use (arora has long been a favorite). Or file manager for that matter (it'll be interesting to try xfe here with its 'good old fltk')

sigh the dl will eventually finish ^·^..

Don't work too hard, Jejy69 Smile

Quick live test...... CheckMate Wary on my main Athlon XP box. Booted to an 800x600 desktop using Xvesa....... used Xorgwizard to get desired 1440x900 resolution. Strange behavior since I have Wary installed on this box and never experienced that before, usually boots straight to the correct resolution.Anyway........
seems to be working so will test further...... Smile

For what it's worth, Sourceforge seems to be back to it's normal speeds here today.

Hi!

CheckMate is WAY cool -- and i ALMOST used it for my main distro...love Puppy and sold on LXDE...

...but i kept hitting snags -- VERY unusual for puppies. PCMANFM was quirky (sorry, i have done so much on this laptop the last week and a half it's all a blur) -- it automatically saved to a 7 MB pupsave file, somehow i got locked into a quirky JWM and didn't know how to get into LXDE again (both "xwin LXDE" and "xwin lxdm" didn't do it).

I downloaded about 5 days ago. MD5 sum checked. Is this the latest stable version? I very much would like to see this working, er, working for me. Right now i can only play with it til it proves itself. IDK maybe i'm the only one having problems -- ??!?!

@ `f00 : Not very fast Confused Thank you all for being so patient ... I am ready to change host, do you have any advice?
I really want to try Google Code, but I'm afraid that what I do is not accepted ...

Yes, I forget a letter, "CheckMate" Embarassed

Promised, Doctor! Very Happy
4 more days and I go on holiday. Rolling Eyes Wink

@ James C : this is my fault, if it boots with Xvesa. On my recent PC, Xorg does not work and I had used in xvsesa. But it is surprising that it is kept in memory ...
Do you see ozone2 theme ? It is pink... Question Exclamation

@ Subito Piano : Type "xwin startlxde" to start with LXDE session Rolling Eyes

I have just installed Opera and the fonts are invisible, as shown in the picture below. It was a .deb package, I'm going to try a Slackware version.

@Jejy69 -attaboy!

@Subito Piano
Learning Experiences (problems are issues)

Know that blur feeling well (mostly from reading fvwm mans, but to return to here-now..) - may be your install type, sometimes a pup will pick up an alien savefile (like that tiny 7mb deal you have) on reboot and do odd things (not so much an issue with liveCD multisession); like if you started on quirky and that autosave happened (argh!) .. may be eventmanager (do you do the save interval thing for autosave at a timed interval? see threads about save/nosave for how not to 'autosave') and/or pcmanfm (it's been awhile since I last tried it, so no real advice there).

Other? This is not merely an lxde add-on, but a complete pupplet in the iso (several in slacko form and some new ones in racy and wary flavors)

Maybe try a liveCD multisession if you haven't done that in awhile (usually pretty foolproof and tidy)

Go for walkabout, maybe .. too much concentration and the trees get lost in the forest or somesuch

hth Confused

Hmm... Lol ! Cool I did not know that was possible.
Can you tell me which package to use?
I think it comes from Pango. I've updated it.

yep

When puppy is searching for puppy files at reboot, it may be occasinally indiscriminate in what it wolfs down. This can result in odd stuff - depending on what pup was originally booted, install type and whether you changed the disc in the tray (liveCD multissession) or a savefile was made (like what may have happened to Subito Piano) or there's just one savefile (so pup makes the choice rather than you selecting from a list)

Save/Nosave is a good option for if you'd rather not have autosave in a frugal install (standard on liveCD multi, also available in package form as shinobar's pupsaveconfig)

For a host, many devs use http://www.smokey01.com/
