Subject description: Based on 01micko's slacko-5.7-nopae, with FF23
 

I would like to thank 01micko for the basic slacko 5.7, koulaxizis for the slacko-5.5XL, and the firefox 23 pet, vicmz for allowing SoftMaker to be made available in puppy-land, and nooby for his relentless pusuit of things unknown that were made known. And of course Barry, Lobster, and all the rest that keep puppy barking all these years. I do miss nooby, and the eeeuser forum greatly.

This puppy linux is called slack57_ff23, It contains a preconfigured firefox23.0.1, and an update to OpenSSL 1.0.1f --> 1.0.1i. The icon-count and menu is minimized, but Menu Manager is available to tweak your desktop. The purpose was to make a "turn-key" approach to a safer browsing experience OOB. Its far from perfect, but a review of the EDIT--> Preferences in firefox will show some of the setup. Looking into the Addons will reveal the installed privacy apps. All one needs to do is download the Office of choice... AbiWord and Gnumeric got pruned to squeeze FF23 in here.

What you need on-hand:
A USB thumbdrive of at least 2Gb (4Gb if Libre Office gets installed) size formatted as ext3. SET THE BOOT FLAG Very Happy
A CD-R: to burn the iso..

The slack57_ff23 iso is available from HERE.
md5sum is 7a88aafd22b4829d2ee6a1e12aba18de
The default screeny can be seen here.

If the md5 sum is OK then the iso can be burned.

The CD is then booted.

The Firefox icon can be found at /usr/share/firefox/browser/chrome/icons/default/default48.png. Just right-cllick the desktop FF23 icon and set icon to the above png file.

Do a universal install to the ext3 formatted USB thumbdrive
Then a first shutdown. Recommended is to make the save file 256Mb or larger.
Reboot from the USB.

*** edit *** I noticed an error here. When I did the remaster, my ROX-filer link pointed to a mnt/home file named "Mypdf". I forgot this would be copied. So when rebooting on first use, the ROX-filer icon is missing. Navigate to mnt/home and add a directory Mypdf. Just drag it to the desktop in the missing position. Editing PuppyPin will correctly place it. Once on the desktop and positioned you can rename it./edit

If all went well, your new puppy is ready to bark!

Hopefully thats it. I made a CD and thumbdrive from this and it tested OK on an eeepc-900a... in fact I built it on the same.

Subject description: A lot has happened here
 

When I first worked on this project, I thought to make a small-office project. I had problems from the start, but found a long-way around.

It turns out that in remastering the iso, that the root/.mozilla file was not being copied to the temp/root file as needed. After 3 unsucessful attempts, I tried comparing the two. Rolling Eyes So I dragged .mozilla into tmp/root. This solved a major obstacle. And it allows the FF configuration to remain intact. I removed AbiWord and Gnumeric, and performed the slacko-update to OpenSSL to 1.0.1i.
A puppy themed screeny is here.
NO Flash
NO Office

added these FireFox23 add-ons
Better Privacy
AdBlock Edge
Redirect Cleaner
FireFTP
YouTube ALL HTML5

Still there were upload headaches... I finally got a good server at ziippyshare to handle it. So the base browser-puppy made it.
I did do a DL of the iso and the md5sum matched.
In thhe folder /root/my-applications/MyFiles are a few more screenies.

Hopefully. I get more noticed for the efforts. Laughing

PostPosted: Wed 17 Sep 2014, 22:01    Post subject: NO horizontal scrollbar
Subject description: 800 width screensize
 

After fixing Xorg, some websites do not cooperate with smaller resolutions (screen width).
This is noted by not having a horizontal scrollbar.

This can be fixed in Firefox (23.0.1 here, and reported in FF29 as a bug)
using about:config and typing in dom. The results will have a line listing
dom.disable_window_open_feature.scrollbars
Double-clicking this line will set the feature to TRUE.
Firefox will tthen generate the horizontal scrollbar needed: ignoring the website's scripting.

This can be altered upon first load w/o internet connection.
It will remain after install/1st shutdown.

PostPosted: Today, at 05:08    Post subject: EEE-8G model  

It works on my 8G model. Unfortunately the CPU is crippled on these to 70% of Full CPU frequency. That means youtube is basically for music or still-image videos only. But still, a good surf.

I have a 900A model, and will shortly receive a 1000HA. The 900A does much better on youtube, but one does have to buffer the loading a bit.

The 1000HA goes to a friend that had Vista in a laptop. Well, things are not looking good there, so I'm thinking this OS and NetBook will get him back on his feet again. He might like the 5.5XL for a full experience.

So far so good here on 700 and 900 series. Nice screenies.
