Hi Jejy69

USB memory sticks don't appear for me in the file manager in Precise Lxpup....

The 2 screenies show:
1. the usb stick detected in Precise-Mate
2. the usb stick not detected in Precise Lxpup in the file manager but will mount OK with pmount

Cheers

Subject description: TIA for your consideration
 

Sir Jerome:

You apparently have earned deserved respect from what I can read here on this forum... Wise beyond your years it seems! Wink

Your Weebly site is PERFECT -- the simplicity and efficiency is refreshing to use/see! (having myself used Weebly in the past)


Thanks to all who might take the time to answer my sincere newbie questions...


slacko:

-is there font smoothing

-why after downloading other desktop (through wmchooser) does it not switch to the new desktop... and every time press (xfce for instances) it only asks to download (again) instead of switching?????

-why does slacko only see approx. 3 of my 8gig of RAM???


precise or slacko:

-which is more stable

-which is better to trust for long-term FULL-TIME use (I understand repos are different)


...once again TIA !!!!

[ I am used to using larger more power-hungry distros (Pear, Mint, Kubuntu, etc.) and want to better understand if puppy is good FULL-TIME use OS ]

Hello Peebee !

Thanks for the report, I will see.
Maybe, restartx after branch the USB key ?
I add problems with Pup-Volume-Monitor. I added a launcher at startup, in / root / startup to launch the process. Confused

Hello okwellthenm and Welcome ! Smile

Thanks you ! Very Happy
It is true that Weebly is very convenient for those like me who do not know to program Html Css ...
It seems to me that you are the first to give me an opinion about the site. Thanks.

I'll try to answer your questions at best. Smile
There is never a stupid question, I imagine that come from heavyweights like ubuntu, Puppy must be disorienting.

-is there font smoothing

Slacko and Precise have font smoothing thanks to Lxappearance, LXDE's application.
Lxappearance -> Font tab.

-why after downloading other desktop (through wmchooser) does it not switch to the new desktop... and every time press (xfce for instances) it only asks to download (again) instead of switching?????
Normally, after downloading the package and its installation, a dialog appears to show the command to type.
It does not restart automatically, simply because I do not have the knowledge necessary to integrate command in the script.
I will ask advice to solve it. Neutral

-why does slacko only see approx. 3 of my 8gig of RAM???
Slacko, has got 3.1 kernel no PAE. This module is not present, the ram is not fully utilized, as a 32bit system.
However, the PAE module is present in the Precise version !
All the ram will be taken into account in this edition.
For your 8gb, it is better to use Precise.

-which is more stable
They are both. However, in view of your configuration (8gb ram), I advise you to use Precise, thanks to PAE module and the recent kernel 3.2. Personally, I use it for my PC : 6go ram, 1go Ati video graphic card, and I3.

-which is better to trust for long-term FULL-TIME use
For now, I think it's Precise.
Why ?
-Recent Kernel 3.2.29
-KMS enabled ( graphic card usable directly without driver from AMD, Nvidia ).
-All libs are updated
-I work on this version, and I will bring some new features like VLC 2.04, Gthumb 3, Kde 4.9.2, Mate 1.4.1, Cinnamon 1.6 etc.
So many updated softwares.
You can of course propose a software, if it is possible I will create a package. Smile

I hope I have satisfactorily answered your questions Smile
Don't hesitate ! I'm pretty available. Smile

PostPosted: Sat 27 Oct 2012, 19:53    Post subject: Getting LxPup's System Tray Icons Closer together  

Hi Jejy69,

Keep up the great work.

yerc1 asked a couple of pages ago whether it was possible to get the LxPup's system tray icons closer together. So far no one has responded.
I don't know if this will work in LxPup. But in Precise Mate with Mate-lx-1.2 installed I stumbled on the fact that if you left-click the tray icons on the left side they can be dragged closer together. The icons on the right side don't appear to be movable. However, setting time 12 hours & seconds seems to push the other right-side icons together, especially if an app is opened.

Hi Jejy69

I see the startup launcher - but if you run it, it says the daemon is already running...

Plugging in the usb stick and then doing restartx - it appears in file manager and can be used - but does not disappear when removed....

Cheers

Merci beaucoup Sir Jerome. You actually made my day. Very Happy
Typing this from Cinammon Precise Puppy... Horray! Thanks to BK and the wonderful puppy community too.

Would give feedback if I encounter any problems. So far so good.

Cheers.
