Subject description: Any interest?

Hello to all who are interested on LazY Puppy 2.0.1 (coming really soooooon!),

i have build (just for fun and testing) a LazY Puppy 2.0.1-rc1 Multiboot DVD that contains all sfs files plus a LazY Puppy Win Installer which contains also all sfs files and installs LazY Puppy frugal with all sfs files in windows.

First screenshot shows dvd main menu (only LazY Puppy 2.0.1-rc1 n.y.p.)
Second screenshot shows dvd sub menu (boot as LazY Puppy Audio Studio, RAM only)
Third screenshot shows boot sequence of loading LazY Puppy Audio Studio SFS

All running from DVD using LazY Puppy Tools (VirtualBox) SFS...







I think this is really interesting and i might want to build such dvd to download - when LazY Puppy 2.0.1 is released.

But this ISO is a huge one - it's about 4,2 GB and it will surely take a lot of time to upload/download such huge file.

So if there would be any interest on such LazY Puppy Multiboot DVD to download, let me know.

3 ) The bootup splash dialog is disabled

4 ) Frisbee is the default network connector

5 ) Desktop drive icons are enabled (at least the USB stick/card reader one anyway, since users like to transfer and/or view photos easily)

6 ) All drives are automounted on bootup

I had to make these changes recently when setting up Lazy 2 for a laptop where the elderly user (like many people) only used their computer for:
a ) Surfing the net
b ) Reading emails
c ) Looking at photos
d ) Playing DVDs

From a 10-minute bootup in Vista to a 45 second bootup in Lazy - my laptop friend is pretty impressed with his 'new' laptop!

I also symlinked the 'My Documents' and 'Downloads' directories to the hard disk, but I realise this cannot be automated (or can it?)


1. Should be possible and released when i upload the new iso.

2. Should be possible too. The FbPanel has option to disable the menu, so i will set this as default in beginner mode.

3. I want to have the bootup splash dialog when booting without using a save file. I will try to find a solution to disable this when a save file is used - but can't make promises on that fact. If it fails, i think it should be easy to a beginner, to move file /root/Startup/zz_run_lazyinfo into /root/Startup/off.

4. This needs to install frisbee?!?!?! Will it make the iso much bigger?

5. Also easy to do and i will set this as default in beginner mode.

6. I don't know if it is possible to set this as default without using a save file. Usually you can't run automount/startmount (or whatever it is named) without using a savefile - got to improve this

I don't know, where the LazY Puppy is installed on the users computer and i don't know actually that much on bash. I could made this default on sda1 (f.e) but i think it would be better to do so on the boot hd/directory. I don't know how to get the boot hd/directory by bash functions. Sad Surely someone in the programming section (sunburnt, bruce b, jpeps, scOttman etc.pp) does know this. If you could find out, maybe getting some code from there, would be fine - i am busy, busy, busy... Very Happy

Changing the name from 'beginner mode' to 'surfer mode' would make it seem more cool

This would be a lot of work to do - but you can edit the menu entry - oh, no that's also a lot of work. Needs to edit 4 .desktop files in 4 different directories. It isn't really that un- Cool

Dear LazY Puppy Users,

if you do need help and/or support on a problem using LazY Puppy and/or one of its special features like the New LazY Puppy Menu Suite etc.pp., please do not send me private messages.

I don't want to hijack your pm's and then quote them inside the LazY Puppy thread.

But i also do not want to send replies on such requests as a private message.

If i can do any help, i will do it with pleasure (if i am able to do so). But there is a need to get other users informed on such issues/problems as well and i don't want to write the same stuff again and again because of you are sending me private messages instead of posting inside this thread.

Please, don't do this.

I will not longer reply to such requests received as private message.

I hope you will understand my intention and i will hope also you do not wipe the LazY Puppy CD/USB Stick as a result of this my post.

Thanks for your support and understanding...

If you have plang=en_UK in the menu.lst entry, does that mean it would always boot into an English UK desktop?

Yes, it should do so (Edit: - i think). If you are using boot option pkeys, then this will overwrite system settings. I do use this boot option always. So, why it should do not?

Example:

System settings says English Keyboard Layout and boot option is set to pkeys=de, then you will always have German Keyboard Layout.

---

Note: I did forgot something to tell you about the settings of wbar!

If you have configured the wbar -let's say in user mode advanced- do save the wbar settings for user mode advanced (you can do this using the New LazY Puppy Menu Suite).

Usually it should save all your settings automatically, if you are changing the user mode - just to make it sure. Smile

LazY Puppy 2.0.1

No, this is not a joke. I am not kidding! LazY Puppy 5.2.8-4 was LazY Puppy 1. LazY Puppy 2 has been uploaded at 18th of march 2012. Now, Lazy Puppy has evolved and is still evolving. It will be LazY Puppy 2.0.1

Yes, this is LazY Puppy Evolution. Flexibility has a (new) Name - LazY Puppy 2.0.1

New Boot Options for LazY Puppy 2.0.1

LazY Puppy 2.0.1 loads automatically the StArtLPx2_Extension.sfs, if available. Boot option lpextsfs=nolpextsfs boots without loading the StArtLPx2_Extension.sfs.
I will create and use StArtLPx2_Extension.sfs later to make the Basic LazY Puppy ISO a bit smaller and put the extracted applications into StArtLPx2_Extension.sfs. Could be useful on smaller RAM. And from time to time maybe i'll put some other applications in there - we'll see.

The New LazY Puppy 2.0.1 Boot Option = lpextsfs

The New LazY Puppy 2.0.1 Boot Parameters:

lpaudiostudio - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Audiostudio
lpvideostudio - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Videostudio
lpofficesuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Office Suite (Standard Office SFS)
lpkdeofficesuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Office Suite (KDE Office SFS)
lpopenofficesuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Office Suite (OpenOffice Office SFS)
lplibreofficesuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Office Suite (LibreOffice Office SFS)
lpgraphicssuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Grafk Suite
lpnetworksuite - - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Internet & Netzwerk Suite
lpwebsuite - dito
lpinternetsuite - dito
lpmediaplayersuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as MediaPlayer Suite
lplazarusfpcsuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Lazarus & FreePascal Suite
lptoolboxsuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 with Toolbox
lputilitysuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 with Utilities
lpwinesuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Windows Suite
lpsciencesuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Wissenschafts Suite
lptechsuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Technik Suite
lpphytechsuit - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 as Physik & Technik Suite (man lese und staune!)
lpdevxsuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 with Standard DevX SFS
lpdevxgambassuite - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 with Gambas DevX SFS
lpkernel - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 with LazY Puppy Kernel SFS (2.6.33.2)
nolpextsfs - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 without StArtLPx2_Extension.sfs
lpuser1ext - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 with UserExtension SFS 1
lpuser2ext - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 with UserExtension SFS 2
lpuser3ext - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 with UserExtension SFS 3
lpuser4ext - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 with UserExtension SFS 4
lpuser5ext - runs LazY Puppy 2.0.1 with UserExtension SFS 5

so, if this is not enough of Boot Options, you can also give any file name of an sfs file, to start LazY Puppy with the wanted sfs.

Some may say, it wouldn't be necessary, because the user has almost his up to six favorite sfs files loaded by the bootmanager. But as i always wrote: i do not use any save file on my home workstation to 100% - except testing new Programs after they are working in my usually working mode (no save file)

All this is now working on my currently running iso! Very Happy

Previous presented List had some old and wrong entries, so i present here now (2012-04-13) the whole boot menu list with all the right entries

Maximum of SFS Files in LazY Puppy 2.0.1

There are still 6 sfs files loadable at boot up using the bootmanager. But Lazy Puppy 2.0.1 will have possibility to load up to 64 sfs files after boot up without complain. Also it will be possible to increase this up to 100 sfs files while running LazY Puppy.

Save-Secure-System in LazY Puppy 2.0.1 (save existing files):

LazY Puppy 2.0.1 has security functions to prevent existing files not to be overwritten.

Example:

Once you have made an edition of an .desktop file, perhaps setting a new, nicer icon and made some translation to your language (german,french etc). All is nice and looks well. Then, if you are installing the new release of this application, the .desktop file (menu entry) will be overwritten and the work is gone.

LazY Puppy has already activated option to save the existing .desktop file, if you are installing a .pet. After installing a .pet, you can choose to start the LazY Puppy Menuentry-Editor automatically and then edit the .desktop file (if necessary). Cool

This is just a short Info/Overview.of LazY Puppy 2.0.1. There is some more really useful struff, like creating run-scripts of prgrams inside sfs files. If clicking on such run-script, it will run the program. if the sfs is not loaded, it will load the sfs. If the sfs nedds another sfs (like lazaraus, that needs the devx), it will load the dependent sfs. Then, if all needed sfs files are loaded, it will run the program.

Run-Scripts are created by rightclick on an unmounted sfs! Exclamation

This is never been seen in any puppy: sfs files do know their dependencies and will make the puppy able to load them automatically! Idea

The Working-Title currently is The German SFS-Werfer and the Idea of the title is inspired by/to the blitzkrieg-defender by kirsten-duarte. Laughing

There is more information still to come... ...just have to sort it out.

RSH

By the Way, here a short Info to interested English Users:

Yes, LazY Puppy boots into a German Desktop, but you can change this to english or any other language right after the desktop is available. So, don't be afraid on that fact. German users do always boot into English Desktop and change this after X is loaded. Trust me - in that case of fact.

give a list of SFS files that are attached to file system.

If it does then you should look

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=40422

Yes, i like this too. That's why i did include the Advanced-Bash-Scripting-Guide.pdf and the Advanced-Bash-Scripting-Guide.pdf into LazY Puppy and related entries into the guides menu. Before i did release LazY Puppy 1, i did try to download the html versions of these pdf guides - but unfortunately they didn't download. Sad

Thanks to your post i now do remember this and did try again to download the html versions - and this time: successful. Also it is a newer version than your "tuuxxx"-version (same as pdf - 6.4, 30. Aug. 2011)

So these will be changed in the next (fixed) iso. I think about a solution to keep the guides outside of LazY Puppy and load them via the menu entries though.

Is there a possibility to set a path to the directory from where LazY Puppy is started that fits in both cases: with and without using a save file?

Example: if i use a save file i do get the path as /mnt/home and without using a save file i do get the path as /mnt/sdd1? Is that possible?

Look at the screenshot (attached) Once pixels get 'trapped' behind the screen menu-bar, nothing can make them go away (except a reboot/X-restart of course) It's a shame, because it spoils the look of your clean desktop in Lazy 2.

There are other minor faults in Lazy 2 apps I have noticed in running it for a few days. Would you like me to post a complete bug report, or should I wait awhile?

The Pixels get 'trapped' behind the screen menu-bar, is not really a bug. It is more a redraw issue of wbar. If this happens again, just do right-click on the wbar. Then it will refresh itself. I was irritated also as i saw this redraw issue at first. Laughing

And, yes: if you run into bugs (minor or major) pleas inform me. Cool

I will read the DPup Extrimo Thread tonight. Maybe i can do something like it's done there. Question

Yes, I got that fault, and your fix works.

Re:CUPS - Yes I installed the Internet SFS but it doesn't fix it. It seems to be a problem with the SWIron/Chrome pet (in your distro list) installation that messes up permissions for CUPS access. I had the same problem in DPup Extrimo and the developer repackaged his Chrome SFS distribution and solved the problem. (discussion here)

I am using Lazy 2 as my everyday OS now. I think your customisable menu system, SFS suites and desktop bar design is a great way forward for Puppy, and I hope other distro designers are watching..
