Yes, it only happens once in a while so I'm not going to be worried about it. In fact, it has not happened again after I reported it.

Thumbs up for another great x -precise.

I've added compiz according to your earlier instructions and now X- precise is giving me the best experiences of everything.

Also, thanks to Geoffrey, the Beautiful whiskey menu makes xfce puppy stands out.

Always loved the save or don't save options at shutdown. I don't know what else to request for in x-precise. Excellent puppy!

The only other puppy that might have the potential to become better than it in my opinion is x-slacko. But for now, I feel like comfortable with x-precise.

This is an amazing Puplet! Definitely the Puppy I've been looking for. Only real complaint so far is mostly cosmetic: the network tray icon doesn't seem to indicate connection if I'm using a tether (from my phone) -- the icon still indicates that network is disconnected even if connected to a working tether. I installed a network_tray-2.7.2 PET that now seems to properly indicate a successful connection, but it still doesn't blink on data transfer and the tooltip erroneously reports the active connection being eth0 instead of the tether I'm using. Apparently this happens if there's more than one wired connection or something, and it doesn't seem to matter whether I use Frisbee, SNS, or others to manage the connection. The weird thing is, the network_tray icon worked perfectly in Carolina. Anyway, I can live with this little bug, but if someone can point me in the direction of a fix, that'd be great. Smile

So yeah, frugal install of X-Precise 2.3 to HDD, and everything is looking fine. Cool

I am using now newest x-precise 2.3 - is there a posibility to install some pup, which allows me to choose during the shutdown to save or not to save (as it was at x-precise 2.2)?

Ascii Design

Ascii Design with the dependency figlet-2.2.5 included.

If you have other Qt apps installed that I first posted HERE, then you'll not need to install the Qt lib files.

Only requires libqtcore4_4.8.1-0ubuntu4.6_i386.pet and libqtgui4_4.8.1-0ubuntu4.6_i386.pet

For more fonts download this figlet_fonts.zip

To add them extract to /usr/share/figlet/ or anywhere you prefer and from the configure option change the path to the fonts.



ascii-design-1.0.3.pet

libqtcore4_4.8.1-0ubuntu4.6_i386.pet

libqtgui4_4.8.1-0ubuntu4.6_i386.pet

What kind of install do you have, USB?

Download and install this fix and see if that helps.

I was using x-precise 2.3 for a few days and sth is wrong with that save or not menu at shutdown. I have installed once some software just to test how it works - like spotify, chromium etc. then I chose to not save during shutdown, but despite I chose to not save, I have still spotify, chromium installed. The funny thing is that this software is now installed but it is not on uninstall list.

Are these pets or sfs? If they are sfs then update sfs-load to 2.0.8 and see if that sorts it out.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=64354

If these were pets: in PUPMODE=3/7/13 PPM copies packages' files directly into the savefile (pup_ro1), but all metadata goes to tmpfs (pup_rw), so not saving session results in exactly that kind of a mess - pet remains installed, but is not listed.
And this is only tip of the iceberg of possible mess this approach can make.

To avoid this, open up /usr/local/petget/installpkg.sh, find this line:
Code:
if [ $PUPMODE -eq 3 -o $PUPMODE -eq 7 -o $PUPMODE -eq 13 ];then

(this line can begin also with elif, not if, in some of Puppies)
and replace with:
Code:
if [ "ABC" = "DEF" ];then

(or elif, if this is the case)
what will make that everything will stay in pup_rw, until saved.

@Rg66: unfortunately, sfs_load-2.0.8 still causes vanishing of .wh files from pup_rw if PUPMODE=3/7/13 and SAVEINTERVAL=0.

Greetings!

PostPosted: Sat 21 Jun 2014, 21:06    Post subject: X-precise 2.3 and Toshiba Chromebook
Subject description: Touchpad drivers
 

Hi rg66

Thanks for X-precise!

Xprecise 2.3 on a USB install is almost perfect on my Toshiba Chromebook. Only two things - the Bluetooth and the touchpad - aren't working but then again a search on the web indicates this is true for other Linuxes.

There is a Toshiba touchpad patch in https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/4291581/

I'm not sure whether applying the patch in X-precise can be accomplished though a pet package or recompiling the kernel with the patch is the way to go. Either way I would very much appreciate if the fix is made available in Xprecise

Thanks in advance.

@ yerc1

I've never had any luck with bluetooth and puppy. Take a look at this link and give it a try. Read the xfce part.

http://themikex.blogspot.com/2012/05/bluetooth-connectivity-in-puppy-linux.html

As far as the touchpad goes, I'm sure that requires patching and re-compiling the kernel. That's a bit much for me but I'm compiling the latest 3.15.1 kernel and will see if I can get X-precise to run with it. I've never had much luck with that either though.

If enough people are interested I will do a version 3.0 starting from scratch with compiled Xfce4 packages, this should fix the P3 / Athlon issue as it did with X-slacko.

If not, I will probably do a v2.4-final as precise puppy isn't being developed anymore.

I'll give the Bluetooth suggestion a go on the weekend.

Fingers crossed the recompile goes well.

Thanks for your response and for X-Precise.
