Hi, stemsee.

Looks interesting, but I have a problem accessing this "Mega" download
address with opera 12.16.

Ok with palemoon 25.3.2. Downloading now.
Also accessed ok with vivaldi-snapshot 1.0.105.7.

BFN.

So, I'm curious, do all your pups that you prefix with "EmSee" have the feature where they can adapt to the hardware (i.e. 32 vs 64 bits)?

Any 32bit puppy has the option to boot with a 64bit kernel and 32bit kernel. I occasionally include that in the iso, but the system is 32bit, with the benefit of being able to run 64bit distros in qemu.

Hello, stemsee.

Things I liked about your TahrPup:

Very complete offering of programs

Nice backgrounds

LibreOffice already in.

Good set of abiword plugins.


Things I didn't like:

Trashcan and Connect icons don't recognize the .DirIcon file in their
respective folders

No right-click menu to speak of... We're trying to emulate xfce, are we? Smile

No possiblity to create the pupsave file at the end of the session. There
was a message in red saying: "Not enough space on partition" (not literal),
whereas I had 16 Gb's on that ext3 partition to create the pupsave. Now
that's pretty serious.

Too many darkish gtk themes. It's a pain trying to read black characters
on a dark gray background on some of those themes. You offer a few
well-contrasted white-ish themes, but IMO, they're sort of run-of-the-mill.

The screen still blinks every minute or so, like in the original TahrPup by
666philb. Quite annoying after a while. Makes you think there's something
wrong with your graphics card, when it is not the case. Not your fault, of
course. I read a little about it, and as far as I could understand the
problem, it's a glitch in the newer X version, apparently.

After I edited the jwm tray to "hidden" (also set clock to _%R_ and a
wider xload), nothing happened when I recycled jwm.

And of course I still prefer my CLI slocate wrapper over yours. Wink

~~~~~~~~~~
So... I think I'll stay put and not upgrade... Sorry... Smile

BFN.

Nice review!

Acrid as always Wink

Thanks. But no need to say sorry, I am not expecting anyone to abandon their personalised favourite spin in favour of my dated experimental beta-release candidate! While Unicorn, April, Vivid, slacko 14.1 and Jessie spins are filling the shelves in this free-to-purchase pet shop. I am the one who should say sorry for uninvitedly filling empty shelf space with oversized products! Yet only 1/4 of an 8GB image!

A plus tard, mon ami! C'est la vie!

Hi, stemsee.

Acrid... Well, at least with me, you know what I think! Besides, I did
compliment your puplet on a few things, no?

Hopefully, my criticism didn't get you too depressed?! Smile

The only real downer for me was not being able to create a pupsave.

The other things are not that important:
    gtk-themes are a dime a dozen;

    I've been using right-click menus ever since liteshell, so I'm addicted.
    But I realize newbies can find it confusing;

    the .DirIcon problem is probably just a bump in the road;

    as to jwm, it's easy to change to some other wm anyway, like icewm,
    pekwm or wmx.

One good thing I forgot to mention above is that your Puppy is very good
for beginners: it has everything a beginner would want in a distro.
Puppy needs more of these.

BFN.

I had the same problem with EmSee-Vivid.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=846089#846089

I just put an empty "vividsave" folder (in this case tahrsave) in the frugal directory with the vmlinuz,initrd and sfs files.....saving now.

Don't know if the new users would figure that out though..... Laughing

Hello, all.

This ready-made 960Mb pupsave solved the session-save problem for me.
