This is the basic pupngo2012 plus goingnuts xorg pet added in:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/3putxzj1gl6oayz/pngo2012Xorg.iso

It still is not set up to start Xorg during boot, so after boot it is necessary to shutdown to prompt, type "xorgwizard", select resolution as appropriate, then type "xwin"

If the desktop background doesnt look right at your resolution use mtpaint to open file /usr/share/images/default.png and scale it to the right size.

If the xorg wizard doesn't get the correct/best resolution for your screen Starhawk has noted a method for getting xorg to lock in the correct value(s) here:

Browsing related

I have uploaded an iso containing the basic pupngo2012 plus the sns pet, plus the "qtweb" browser. This won't be suitable for Facebooking or Youtubing, but all I wanted was something a bit more capable than Dillo, and including the ability to access https sites (ssl) so I could check my emails.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/ida53dbecium4pc/pngo2012+sns+qtbrowse.iso
(does not contain xorg)

This next iso does contain xorg:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/36b3ok0fywx3xxa/pngo2012+sns+qtbrowse+xorg.iso
Please see the notes in posts above re how to get xorg started (is not set up to autostart at boot time), and for a link to starhawks note about forcing xorg to get the correct resolution setting.

Now added freeoffice to the qtbrowse version (and also included "mp" text editor to get past the gtk copy/paste issue with beaver):
http://www.mediafire.com/file/j6gv0yo4d8wdpaw/pngo2012+sns+xorg+qtbrowse+freeoffice.iso
(Have also improved the qtbrowser problem where it was displaying annoying crosses where they shouldn't be)

Note: qtweb browser seems to run pretty well, but in pupngo it has a couple of display oddities which I havent sorted yet. Hopefully I will be able to track down what is causing it, but it doesn't stop it being useful anyway.

I'll watch this thread -- when I see an Xorg Pet (or that Xfb... thing), I'll burn a CD and unearth the CPi for testing.

Can't do much if the screen's all pink with every other line missing.

I see you have two with Xorg in them Very Happy

One question -- I assume FreeOffice is, er, free... that one simply has to register with Softmaker, but there is no money involved? If so, that's the one I'll try first on the CPi.

Yes, no cost for the Freeoffice suite. I guess their thinking is that users of the free suite might eventually purchase the Softmaker Office 2012 suite which can also save in docx format. I'm pretty happy with the Freeoffice - it reads docx and does all I want (especially the export to pdf function) and seems real quick. It'll be interesting to see if it is even lighter when I strip out the planmaker (xls) and presentations (ppt) stuff and just use it for documents.

Wow, thats quite a collection! I must have 200 or so and I thought I was doing well. Being 1000th is a pretty special honour. I'll take the accolade!

I'm somewhere around a hundred. 99 at last count but I can't remember if I've downloaded any since... IIRC this pUPnGO (FreeOffice+Xorg) will be #100 for me.

...ally, I didn't realize there WERE a thousand Puppies! I always assumed the count was somewhere around 250-300 or so...

I'm going to guess you must have some really old stuff in there, as well as (almost literally) everything that's ever been on this forum?

hey starhawk

it started quite innocently and them became a bit of an addiction........spent WAY to long trawling and my ISP has made a few bucks from the process!

it really came to a head when I was trying to find all of the (very excellent) puppeee builds for my eeepc

had to use the wayback machine for many and a some builds like eeetiger just vanished which I thought was a shame, so, I just started collecting them for posterity

I am out of work due to a long standing illness but hope to be able to host them all in the future (if/when) I get better

attached is the current list in gnumeric for anyone interested

Smile

ps - I am still humbled and amazed by the skills and selfishness of those that contribute - wish I had the abilities necessary

I'm sure that's quite a list, but I'm on a closed-source OS at the moment which I don't think supports Gnumeric Embarassed I'm still only using Puppy recreationally.

Could you put that file up as a Libreoffice spreadsheet (or compatible)?

Also, pure nosiness at work here: would you mind telling what illness(es) you have?

hey starhawk

I have CFS/ME (Myalgic Encephalopathy) and Fibromyalgia and am now having to walk with the aid of a stick (am 44)

the worst thing is my often inability to mentally process when tired and speech goes wonky

I was working in health care before having to admit defeat and some days just tying my shoelaces would be considered an achievement

it sucks

I'm familiar with F/CFS. See here, about 2/3 of the way down -- http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=83422&start=15

Thanks for the file, downloading now.

EDIT: [docbrown]GREAT SCOTT!![/docbrown] That's a LOT of Puppies! You've got a license for all that? Very Happy just kidding.

Here's my collection, not nearly as long... I really like jemimah's Puppeee series; if you have a bunch (I've the memory of a sieve so I can't remember from that great whacking list), AND you're in the States, I might be interested in all the ISOs you have of those on a DVD-R or two... please no +R/RW media; I don't have a drive in the house can read it.

*ahem* List attached.

...extras?

TBH, if shipping to the UK weren't so expensive (us$15 or so) I'd offer to ship you ones you're missing, if any. Unfortunately, it's beyond my means -- America has a LOT of issues, how we treat our poor being one of them, in a big way. (Small example: Mom and I live on her disability check; it's ~us$1k/mo. We do not receive Food Stamps any more, and therefore making ends meet is difficult at best.)

In a previous lifetime (ie before bad stuff happened and we became poor) Mom was an attorney and we traveled to Europe every other summer. I say this a lot: if I could pick one city to live in, it would be London.

Maybe someday. Right now I couldn't afford the trip to the airport.

Updated my second post to add iso of Textmaker2002 as a lighter (but less capable) alternative to Freeoffice. Just might breathe some usability back into less powwerful machines.
