666Philb:

Sorry to hear about your PSU. Would you happen to have a script or a pet for that icon issue in the meantime? It may come in handy on other puppy projects, as well.

Thanks and thanks for another strong puppy!

hi slavvo67,

the problem remedied itself in the newer build. ubuntu would have updated a load of libs. i had s similar problem with early unicornpups. initially gtkdialog didn't work with it and then at one point this problem was fixed due to newer libs & apps

It's concerning to me because when restarting X, I typically have a mounted USB that will then not appear as a mounted icon on the desktop. I can certainly see it as mounted in Roxfiler but forgetting it's mounted may cause me to remove a usb without unmounting first.

Thank you, as always for your help and your find distros.

network_tray does not work in vividpup (or unicornpup).

A patch and fix is available from:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=837479#837479

#666philb - can the amended source be uploaded to ibiblio please?

rerwin has also detected that the source contains deprecated gtk_ calls so a 2.9.2 version may appear once changes have been identified and tested.

Thanks
peebee

Peebee,

Great find and fix! Thank you! Philb mentioned he has a newer version of Vivid that fixes the issue but as you notice, he hasn't been around for a few days. He was having computer issues.

Best,

Slavvo67

Thar is very nice but I believe you've 'out-done' yourself on Vivid!!! It's extremely nice and without doubt the most-responsive of any of the new Puppy's I've tested to date! 'Nice job phil'

Everything OOTB works as it should so far... installed extra programs working without any problems so far... It's a pleasure to test something like Vivid!

One question... what's the name of the default PDF reader? and where is it located?

Hope you take this one all the way!!!

Actually its not that big, but gives great utility services for 32bit PCs. Very nice WOOFCE distro on older Ubuntu base (V14+) with PUP controls and flavor. Works on all my boxes tested using Live DVD boot system operations. Here's one Celeron laptop running 2 PaleMoon windows with 17 tabs open to websites:
Code:
root# free
             total         used         free       shared      buffers
Mem:       1535856      1343452       192404       679488       140732

Thx
