is there a place where I can download the most recent version of lxpanelx for your older 5.7 slacko versions? I can't find them in the package manager.

lxpanelx is sadly a defunct project - there has been no "recent version" for some long time - that is why I have had to move to lxpanel on more recent lxpups....I did try to compile lxpanelx for new builds but failed.....

What aspect of lxpanelx do you need to update????

It doesn't show all the desktops in the desktop pager. It just shows 1 even though I have made 3.

Works fine for me on a pristine boot of LxPup-15.11-s with lxpanelx .......

Add desktops either by clicking the scroll wheel on the mouse

or Menu -> Desktop -> Change Appearance -> Windows to run Openbox Configuration Manager

Did you make the additional desktop differently??

I did this before. However, I changed from 2 to 3 and all of the sudden they showed up.

Anyhow, I have another question. Can I install ubuntu debian packages on xenial based lxpup? If so how? I would like to install this facebook plugin in pidgin. http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/jgeboski/xUbuntu_16.04/i386/

Yes - Easiest way if the .deb is not in the repositories offered by PPM is to download the .deb and then click on it - once loaded you will need to use the menu item Setup -> Check dependencies installed pkg

If there are missing dependencies you will need to install these as well - hopefully via the PPM.

Thanks for all your help? What is the easiest way to setup bluetooth in xenial? Would this be better posted to xenial pup?

PostPosted: Sun 04 Dec 2016, 23:18    Post subject: Puppy Package Manager won't download or upgrade anymore.  

My puppy package manager stopped updating and downloading all the sudden. It seemed to happen after I downloaded adb and fastboot tools so I could upgrade my phone to the latest cyanogenmod nightly. I am using the xenial version of lxpup.

https://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_condor

Otherwise xenial lxpup is working perfectly, so I would hate to have to do a reeinstall.

Hi Peebee
I'm still using your excellent LXpup as No. 1 among all distros, but I am also trying to get through some bugs (not found in forums). One of them is the Keyboard Layout switcher/handler), which won't show in any LXPup the appropriate flags in the panel (shows only a blank frame). Do you please know a solution?

Hi riedzig....I'm pleased to report that the Keyboard Handler panel plugin is now working in LxPupSc-17.01.21.....

Hi, peebee
many thanks, I'll have a look at it. Will it be possible to use my current save file?
If you have a moment please read my last query (at this time still unanswered)
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=109558
I would very much appreciate an advice.

Could you offer versions with the 3.x kernel? The 4.x kernel doesn't work with my Puppy computer but would like to try this pup.

Hi

You can change the kernel yourself (as long as you have a frugal install)...

Grab a kernel from:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/huge_kernels/

From the Run command in the menu, run change_kernels

or just swap the vmlinuz and zdrv files manually.....

Which LxPup are you using?
What kind of install?
Have you tried other Pups? Do they have this problem?
Can you try the base Pup i.e. a Pup without the LXDE additions please - see:

Can't help much with full installs I'm afraid as I never, ever do them - can't see the point when frugal installs are so easy, quick and flexible.....

Have you loaded any other software onto your full install?

Where is your full install located?

Nobody else has reported a similar problem despite >9500 downloads....

Bit difficult to suggest what to try - might be an acpi issue so you could try some kernel boot switches as per:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=73304

Anybody else got any advice??
