For Lucid 5286

With this graphics card, you are always going to have problems with Linux support.
The Vesa driver is probably your best option.
There is nothing wrong with using the Vesa driver. It provides support for the common functions that all graphics hardware have.

Click on Quickpet icon on desktop.
In Quickpet->drivers tab
Run "click here to test your graphics card"
It may suggest some other or added driver to use.

I assume this is because it tries to do a good boot to desktop, guessing at what graphics driver to use. Sometimes it comes close to working and other times it fails.

At the Puppy boot screen, hit F2 for boot options screen.
The Puppy boot screen does not stay up for long, so you do need to be quick, in pressing F2, to get to boot options.

After you do get booted to desktop. When you shutdown, make a save file. Next time you boot, the save file will be used, with your custom settings.

Explain in detail what you see.
There is time needed to connect and establish setup.

Hi, I just noticed there is no battery indicator in the systray?

Even when I boot without the save file.

Thank you,

Just want give cerwin a feedback. It is not fair not to let you know that I have been using your lucid for a while. I have tried quite a few different versions of puppies. This is the one i eventually settled on. I just want to let you know that your work is greatly appreciated. Dont abandon it.

The reasons i like it are:

It is fast, it is truly cutting-edge, and has all the major repositories which gives wide selection of apps.

the only thing I would wish that there is a truly mini version. the menu is cluttered with a lot application I never use. It will be great if you can make a barebone version which has nothing but the minimal to get the puppy running, eg, package manager, network, pupsave, ect. what is available in the repository isleft to user to decide.

I have another question. Is there a guide as to hoe to edit menu categories? I would like at least to unstall some apps and removes some categories and consolidate the menu. I was able to uninstall all the games, but the "Fun" category is still there.

thanks for the great work.

Thanks for revitalizing this puppy! My favorite version for my Eeepc 900 since Puppeee was discontinued.

It brings back things I miss in the latest mainstream Puppies:

Quickpets, Pwidgets (need battery, temp. and wireless info), desktop icon setup menu, quick selection of browser downloads, and other things.

Some of these are available in one form or another for current Puppies, but Lupu has them all together.

Ken

Thank you for pointing that out. I have tested the latest version, 2.6-wary5, in lupu and sulu2 and it appears to work in both! So, I will add that to the next upload of lupu and friends.

tigs and kenh, thanks for your encouraging words. tigs, the way to remove entries from the menus is to delete the ".desktop" file for each one you want to remove. They reside in /usr/share/applications. That would remove only the entries, not the programs. But they contain the name of the program file that you might also remove, although you may then leave other components behind.

Subject description: screen capture in Super Lucid
 

the number of Lucid renews increases. Good idea. upup 3.9.9 is ok, wireless connection, sound, Each can customize it, or not.
Really good way of doing things, permanent progress in a known environnement. Bien.
screen capture in Super Lucid : d'ont use VIDCAP 1.1.7 from PPM, but from my google drive repository. In fact it's a package done by our Kamarads from lupurus, ibiblio.org.
I'ts only 3.4MB. That's enough.
pet xvidcap 1.1.7
The video is here, click !

The reason I don't use it is due to me have dragged
.mozilla and .cache and some more to the HD
and dropped these for the older Lucy I use now.

I don't dare to touch this in case it get messed up.

I usually break things when I try to do such.

And the old Lu cy works well so see no immediate need
to change considering that I always forget how to do things.

PostPosted: Sun 16 Mar 2014, 02:09    Post subject: Can 5.2.86 use previous 2fs files, older pets?  

My installation of lupuplus 528.5 has gone terribly wrong. Suddenly, it can't find my Seamonkey profile, so Seamonkey won't run. Firefox won't let me set the check box to save passwords, my 2fs file has balooned to almost 6GB, where last time I checked it was under 2GB, and I can't seem to write from one hard drive to the other.

I prefer Seamonkey to Firefox, and I also need x-fprot, rawstudio and ufraw. Can I install all of those in the new lupu, or if not, can I load them from an old 2fs file?

I would suspect a corrupted save file.
fsck the save file.

Could be partition filesystem corruption. Check it also.

first i am wondering why there si a new iso for this as apposed to just an update .pet like with previous lupu528 versions. also as Lubuntu Lucid LTS has now been replaced byu Ubuntu tahr LTS what is teh future of this lupu os.

will this version of lucid puppy be updated to the new ubuntu tahr as that is now the current ubuntu LTS release. Barries quirky tahr is far removed from puppy now it does not have a frugal setup, and has moved away from the standard puppy. os . to fit in with Barries new ideas adn focus.
