that worked. So, does this command point anything asking for the .6.0.0 toward the .7 instead?

thx!

Thx for this awesome puppy, my current fave!

Issues on first day with Vlina. Note, this is a vlina without an adrv ("slim" mode):

vlina issues:

- autocomplete not working in run box.
- grid padding/spacing have no effect.
- lock desktop not working


Attempted to install Wine from puppy-carolina repository. Received following errors:

- File /usr/lib/wine/gphoto2.ds.so has these missing library files:
libgphoto2.so.6 libgphoto2_port.so.10
- File /usr/lib/wine/winemp3.acm.so has these missing library files:
libmpg123.so.0
- File /usr/lib/wine/wldap32.dll.so has these missing library files:
libldap_r-2.4.so.2 liblber-2.4.so.2


Attempted to generate a remaster. I booted the new iso, and found the following were missing from remaster: (some of these maybe normal)

- Critical: frisbee not seeing any connections (lost hdwr settings?). Unable to connect to wireless.
- thunar settings (even tho selected Thunar and all other config files, during Thunar config remaster)
- asked to enable firewall (already enabled in source)
- custom bash script which i had put into the source root/startup dir.
- went into 'personalize' screen on first boot (maybe normal?). NumLock was not checked, although it was enabled in the source puppy.
- synclient sensitivity (other synclient settings were preserved).
- saved frisbee networks

Creates a symlink named libxfce4util.so.7 to libxfce4util.so.6.0.0

If you mean run command, then that's just a simple yad script which does have a history which is selectable from the combobox.

Grid padding/spacing for desktop icons are working ok for me.

lock desktop, xlock needs replacing, see HERE

Don't worry about the missing lib files with wine, it should still work ok.

As for the missing config files for thunar and the like, you will most likely have to replace those that are required in /root/.config and /root/Startup from a working install, I usually manually edit the sfs for those types of changes.

I'm not sure but it maybe possible to merge a save file contents into the sfs to create a custom remaster, just thinking out loud.

Could that affect other executables which are expecting the .7 version?

Yes, run command, and I used some puppy recently which has auto-complete in the run box. Not sure which version, but prolly something with xfce. Would be nice if Lina had that.

i go into xfce power tools, change the padding or spacing to 8, hit 'Apply', and nothing changes on the desktop. am i doin it wrong?

been trying to get eM client to run with Wine alone, PlayOnLinux, and Wine-Portable (my fave!). Was able to run eM installer, but not the application. Posted on separate thread: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=841478#841478

so the section of the remastering tool, where it gives you a list of config files, and you checkmark the ones to include, that does not work?

Seems most logical to me! Since i would expect (and prefer) a remaster to include everything in my setup.

but bigger problems now, will post separately.

thx!

Hello

i have 3 frugal Vanguards, and i believe they are using each other's PSF's. i'm seeing the wallpaper of one of them in a different Vanguard, and panel changes i made are half-lost and scrambled up. But, all their panels and wallpapers seem identical, on casual inspection. Other changes seem just plain lost.

on one partition, i have my own remastered Lina. On another partition, i have a full Vanguard install in one folder, and in another folder a 'Slim' Vanguard, with no adrv.

None are on the boot partition, where grub is installed.

Looking kinda like a monster mixture of config's. All the work and time put into configuring these 3 frugals appears hosed, as they say.

Was able to recover the Slim install by copy/pasting a backup i had of it's PSF.

Sad

update: i instructed the Slim Vanguard to increase it's PSF size. Then, i booted into the full stock Vanguard, and IT increased it PSF size!

I recompiled xlock and enabled the .xlockrc


thx for that!

works.

but doesn't it usually ask user to set a password before locking?

Try renaming each save so you know which save belongs to what, then by rights it should list them at boot and select the correct one

Delete /root/.xlockrc then it will ask to set a password.

A while back I complied xfce desktop 4.12 and xfce4-panel 4.12.0, for some unknown reason I've managed to lose all that I compiled, but luckily I found a package I made from them,
I've stripped it back so as not to break anything which is in vlina and from the testing I've done appears to work ok.

It may be wise to try this in a new save file first to be sure it's ok, as it overwrites existing files so it can't be uninstalled.

Edit: see this post, updated http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=841984#841984

Terminal in "Utility>Terminal" won't launch. To get around it and test this problem a bit more.
I installed LXTerminal.

Double check was
Code:
sh-4.3# which terminal
/usr/bin/terminal
sh-4.3# terminal


terminal 0.4.8 then launches OK with no errors.
From "Menu>Run Command"
the command terminal launches .0.4.8 terminal OK.

I can't remember off hand what to look at to edit "menu>utility>terminal" right now because it is a busy day in the m/c shop. Just posting early info on this 4.12 install is all.

Only tests done so far Geoffrey. Wondering how safe yet it is to add this to my complete save file made during initial install but I have the room on this netbook to live with this new one and set it up like the earlier install save file, that I have been rolling with.

Looks OK so far Geoffrey.[/code]

Yeah I'm fixing that, making another package with all the fixes and a few updates including xfce 4.12, in the mean time all you need do is disable "Use startup notification"
for the panel launcher and for the menu entry just edit the /usr/share/applications/Terminal.desktop

I'm adding these updates:

Fix terminal .
Fix xlock
Update "/bin/ln" so relative symlinks can be created using the thunar rightclick menu "Create Symlink" .
Adding "/usr/bin/xclip" and renaming thunar custom action from "Show Full Path" to "Copy Path"
Update Whisker menu panel plugin.
Remove the thunar wallpaper plugin as it no longer works with xfce 4.12, this will remove the menu option to set as wallpaper/background.
Remove "/usr/bin/xfce4-settings-manager" as this does not work, Control panel is the default which runs with the command "wizardwizard".
Fix xmenumaker icon.


If there are any other things that anybody feels need addressing please let me know.

PostPosted: Fri 24 Apr 2015, 19:04    Post subject:  

Yesterday I had the strangest problem. I'm reporting this as a curiosity, not as a problem, at least at this point. I gave up trying to troubleshoot it, mostly because I don't know how.

I was running two spare systems. One was my netbook...

ASUS 1000HE
1.6GHz Atom N270
2gb RAM
32gb SSD

...and the other was my Dell laptop, don't remember the specs offhand. It's a Latitude E4310; I just don't remember what I've done to it Razz

On the netbook, I was running Caro Vanguard from either (a) frugal install to the SSD with grub4dos, or (b) manual frugal install to a USB stick. The stick is a 32gb Lexar. On the Dell, I was running from CD, as it only has one functional USB port. (Repairing the broken one --and it is a mechanical repair issue-- requires pulling the entire laptop apart, down to the chassis. No thanks!)

Regardless, installing either PeeBee's or kost@s' Chromium 42 SFS, or the Chromium 40 SFS I have archived on my desktop (which runs it fine) or re-downloading the Chromium 40 SFS -- in all cases on both systems from all three install methods, Chromium would not run. PeeBee's SFS gave me the "default browser" check and that was it. Converting it into a dotPET using SFS2PET didn't fix it.

The complaint, when run in terminal, was either a malloc() failure or some sort of filesystem check that failed. In the case of the malloc() failure, it was always 0xb7[...] -- the remaining digits were different, but the first hex pair for that pointer was always b7. I got the malloc() problem almost exclusively when I disabled sandboxing entirely, or when I ran Chromium as 'spot' instead of 'root'. When sandboxing was enabled, I got the filesystem check problem instead.

I know the RAM in both machines is good, and nothing was installed other than Chromium and libevent-2.0.21-up-20130310.txz -- a package I have on Caro Vanguard on the desktop which works with Chromium 40. I'm using that combination on the desktop right now and it works fine.

Has anyone here encountered any of this? Would anyone here happen to know what could trigger it, or how to fix it? Again, at this point it's a mild irritation more than anything -- but I'd still like to know!

Thanks Geoffrey. Used your instructions and got it sorted.

Will make another save when the fixed 4.12 is ready.

more vlina issues to share:
on Vanguard slim-mode (no adrv)

- xfce power tools bug: After setting and applying settings several times, the whole desktop disappears. Panels still work, so 'restart wm' fixes it.

clipboard bug: clipboard loses text:
- open a panel launcher-widget properties.
- open edit-window on any program in the launcher.
- Tab to the 'command' box. Copy (ctrl-c). Keep properties open.
- open leafpad. Paste. No problem so far.
- return to the launcher program properties window.
- tab to the 'name' field. Ctrl-c copy.
- Close the program properties window.
- Switch to leafpad.
- Paste. Nothing pastes. The clipboard is lost.
This problem is not universal-- eg, you can copy text in leafpad and close leafpad, and the text will remain on the clipboard.

Shutdown sometimes fails. Not sure of exact sequence, but something like:
- First shutdown (no save file)
- click "save"
- continue to last step of save config
- click "back"
- continue to last step of save config, again
- finish the wizard.
- shutdown does not happen
- click start menu > shutdown
- shutdown does not happen:

EDIT:
Screenshot bug - puppy freezes:
- open application menu > graphic > Screenshot tool
- set Delay to 10 seconds
- click 'select a region'
- browse to a new save location
- click 'ok'
- Puppy freezes up. Nothing clicks. Cannot open panel. Alt-Tab does nothing.
- Had to press computer power-button to shutdown.

ppm bug:
- click 'sylpheed portable' in ppm
- nothing happens

not complaining, just reporting.

Thx for all the puppies!
