Just a quick test live pfix=ram and v5 appears to be working fine here. The md5 here is 9d824e0c168459cddb7b5096673c3964.

Oops ! ! ! In the final ISO, I inadvertently installed Lxlauncher .. I'm sorry...
I will remove this stupid thing...
You can remove Lxlauncher in /etc/xdg/autostart and it will not launch at all.

Sorry for the inconvenience

Oh, I see, I couldn't find it in v5 but there is a new iso. Great. But actually, maybe a launcher would be a good idea, since there are no icons on the desktop as in usual Puppy--I like the clean look but maybe I could use an alternative to the Menu.

OK, maybe lxlauncher is not the one Wink But maybe PupApps?

To get the Panel prefs, right-click on the panel to get a transparent panel.

Gnome-mplayer. There is a problem with gnome-mplayer 1.0.5 with View -> Half Larger, that I think is fixed by gnome-mplayer 1.0.6 from the Slacko repo (and fixed in Slacko 5.3.3.2)

I was going to try Yeahlauncher on LXDE. True it's very lightweight and arguably one of the lightest launchers around but I like to keep things small.

Another launcher to try is Badbar2 which was made for BadWM but I want to try it on LXDE as well.

Thank you playdayz for suggesting PupApps, which is designed to launch favorite applications.

You could also consider PupMenu which is a comprehensive application finder, launcher and editor. Version 2.7 was released today. Smile

Hi ! Very Happy

I finished!
I removed Lxlauncher ( "OK, maybe lxlauncher is not the one", no, it's not Laughing ), added PupMenu & PupApps !
PupApps is already on the desktop.
MPlayer fixed, yeah I can play videos in full screen now, thanks ! Very Happy
Seamonkey libs added, & GetFlash updated.
Fixed invalid hostname, "puppypc", instead of "Checkmate" to avoid network errors.

Thanks all, have nice day !

Nice one! Just a note, a Firefox menu entry wouldn't appear until I restarted X. Maybe this is due to PupMenu, but I can live with that.

One thing I would like to fix is the right click context menu still has some typo's ( Texte editor). It's no big deal but if someone could tell me what file to edit that would be great!

Again, nice job on this. Thanks for all the hard work!!!

Sub_title: LXPanelX and system time is all thats left
 

Brilliant work Jejy69!

Seems you've trained this Puppy to do new tricks.

I wanted to report something odd happened on my frugal install with your latest version 5.

My tray items have disappeared and I'm not sure what it was that caused it. Only the time and LXpanelX are still standing.

Trying to retrace my steps:
I had a fresh frugal install and used SNS for my wired connection because Frisbee would not allow it (although it worked great for my Belkin USB wireless N+). I did not notice any tray problems then.

Followed by...

a wine...SFS file; that was successful.

Firefox from the repository.

Google Chrome from the repository

Then I believe I installed PupClockset from the PupControl panel>Settings. It seemed to configure OK but shortly after this I noticed most of my tray was missing; but not convinced Pupclock was to blame. (I will say after the SNS configuration the tray looked a bit messy but I did not think anything of it.)

Restarted xserver then restarted startlxde, rebooted...still no joy.
**Note: I also removed pupclock and rebooted with same result.

This may be an isolated occurrence; but wonder if anyone else had this happen.

Couldn't be my deprecated hardware: wink

512 Ram

@ rg66 : Look in /~/.local/share/applications to add actions. Wink

@ Gnuxo : I can't help you, try again later. But the mirrors are very good... Confused

@ JackWagon : Oops, I don't know... Maybe a LxpanelX bug ? I'll update when a new version will be released. Smile

Hi JackWagon

1 -The current release of Checkmate uses an early alpha version of 'lxpanelx' which is a fork of the standard lxpanel, so there may be a few bugs.
2 - Puppy derivatives with the standard (original) lxpanel often use the 'lxpanel_menu_refresh' utility to update the panel after configuration files are modified (for example, Lucid Puppy). PupClockset works fine in this scenario.
3 - Other Puppy derivatives with the standard lxpanel do not have the 'lxpanel_menu_refresh' utility, but do support external restarting of lxpanel with a new or modified profile (for example, Fatdog64 and Lighthouse64). PupClockset works fine in this scenario.
4 - In this very nice Checkmate derivative by Jejy69, the alpha version of lxpanelx (the fork) does not function with the 'lxpanel_menu_refresh' utility. And, more importantly, standard external commands do not force the expected refresh of lxpanel (i.e., lxpanel does not restart with the new configurations settings).

Sorry JackWagon, it seems the lxpanelx alpha does not support some of the functions of the original lxpanel, so PupClockset is not currently recommended for the lxpanelx fork of lxpanel.
