I have moved some files inside /usr/share/applications/ using pmenu. You can enable them by running pmenu and then clicking the removed (list below in pmenu) .desktop file.

This one is:

The New LazY Puppy 5.2.8 QuickInstall.

It will show the English GUI if the English Keyboard Layout is set.

You can download single files by using the icons or the menu entries.

You can also search the online folders by using the menu entries.

In the second Tab (hidden, under the menu) is a big button that brings you to this site, so you can get easily informed about the latest news of LazY Puppy.

You can run the lucid quickpet by using the menu title Lucid Puppy, but it is recommended to download and use the LazY Puppy 5.2.8-4 .sfs files.

Edit: i have moved this post from the second post to here. I want to use the second post to set links to some posts inside this thread. I want to get the users easily informed and to provide a faster overview.

Several other Puppies(like Akita and Exprimo)
have made a nice change to an icon
mini-clock.xpm
They substituted an attractive clock face.
The icon is used by so many programs in the start menu
(pschedule, Bacon Recorder,pclock,pwidgets,ptiming)
it's worth the effort to change.

______________________________

A nice touch would be a Bookmarks list for Rox-Filer
which is found in /root/.conf/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/.
Both Akita and Exprimo have done this.
Here's an example of the Akita Booksmarks.xml file

Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<bookmarks>
  <bookmark title="/">/</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/etc">/etc</bookmark>
  <bookmark title="/media">/media</bookmark>

Lighthouse 503g has a nice feature that

Normally when mhwaveedit is opened it's difficult to
use -----> too small and sidebars.

Tazoc has solved this by including a configuration file
where normally there is none.
/root/.mhwaveedit/config

Code:
# mhWaveEdit configuration file.

# May be hand edited but extra comments will be removed when the

# Remove this file to restore default settings.

By the way there is a new version of Screenshot Browser which

It's available at the psnapshot thread.

I didn't see a psnapshot.desktop file

I think you're confused. The left side of the picture
shows pupsnap which I have nothing to do with.

And the right side of the picture shows mtpaintsnapshot.sh
which is recent and I had nothing to do with that as well

But Lazy does have psnapshot installed as well
(which I like and did have a hand in writing)

Just follow my instructions and you will have a German
Screenshot program Laughing
(or didn't you install psnapshot??)

I can not confirm this message posted by you. As you can see in the image both, mtpaintsnapshot and psnapshot running by using the menu entries.

I did no changes (except translation) in the psnapshot.desktop file and the mtpaintsnapshot is the new one. Copied manually into the system, overwrites the original and runs without changing something in the mtpaintsnapshot.desktop file (except translation)

Tough, thank you for your posts.

PostPosted: Sat 07 Jan 2012, 16:39    Post subject: spell checking in German

I was able to get the spell checking to work in German while
using Abiword and Sylpheed.

Here's how I did it.

1) I deleted all files named 'normal.awt'
(because Abiword looks at the tail of this file to find the language
to set up the template document. It found en-US there
so it was setting up the documents as English at first launch!!)

2) I installed my new version 1.2 of abispell-de dictionary.
Available HERE

By the way it has a pinstall script to delete the normal.awt file
automatically so the user is spared that work.

Now if German is the operating system's language the German
dictionary will be used, and if English is the operating system's
language the English dictionary is used.

However this is an old German dictionary (before the spelling Reform)
so expect some words like 'dass' or 'musste' to be underlined with red
when they shouldn't. Sad


___________________________________________________


Sylpheed has a configuration file
/root/.sylpheed-2.0/sylpheedrc
that sets the preferred language for spellchecking I believe.
I'll have to check that again.

Both .ogg and .aif sound files will open with mhwaveedit,
so it would make sense to have a right click option
'Edit with mhwaveedit' for these files.

__________________________________

Scripts have a right click option to be opened with Abiword,
but I suggest that this be removed and replaced with a text editor.

Abiword can fool an inexperienced user because of
it's Smart Quotes feature.

For Gtkhash's md5sum right click you need a better icon that will stand out clearly.

Just change the Exec line in the .desktop file



Change the line to
Exec=/usr/local/psnapshot/psnapshot

This is all that is needed to launch psnapshot.

To show the German language you will need to install
the locals which you can get here.

Do tell us about your experiences in putting this together. Few people realize the work involved until told . . .

At first i have to say: i have loved the .pup (Muppy 08.3F). The .pup always gave me Information about existing files before it continues to install. The .pet overwrites every existing file and keeps the action "classified". So to me the .pup is LINUX and the .pet is WINDOWS. Windows doesn't take care of the mbr. It overwrites everything that is in the mbr. And so is the .pet. Linux takes care of the mbr. You will always get your windows system (if installed), no matter how much Puppies/Linux's you have installed (did never ever hear of another case). And similar is the .pup.

This took me to the following way to work out and put together .pet and .sfs files.

1. Step/Rule
------------
1.a Boot always clean system
1.b Only install .pet files without using a save file (Live, CD or USB)
1.c Only install .pet files to check out the program (it runs? it works?)

2. Step/Rule
------------
2.a Boot always clean System
2.b Extract the .pet (extract to Linux partition, to keep the links)
2.c Copy the extracted .pet manually into the linux system

2.d Do not allow to replace existing files

- 2.d.a Create a directory containing exactly the structure of the files that want to overwrite existing ones
- 2.d.b Move the files that want to overwrite existing files into that created directory
- (do this step by step, and always before clicking OK, until all files are copied, maybe lots of directories and subdirs have to be created)
- 2.d.c Create a .pet out of the directory of the extracted .pet, that now should miss those files that have wanted to overwrite existing files
- 2.d.d Create a .pet out of the directory that contains the moved files
- 2.d.e Rename the .pet's (familiar to another but different to the original)
- 2.d.f Backup the .pet's (and the directories, they maybe needed later)

2.e Refresh the menu to get the desktop entry (openbox refresh menu refreshes fbpanel also and calls fixmenus (afaik))
2.f Run the program and use it as it should be used for

3. Step/Rule
------------
3.a If everything has been fine, decide if you want to use/install the program (keep the .pet's!)

Otherwise

- 3.b Program crashes or some functions doesn't work? Install the created .pet containing the moved files
- 3.b.a Do exactly (exactly as you can) what you have done as the program crashes
- 3.b.b If the program doesn't crash and all functions seem to work i usually open my window and JUMP (just kidding)
- (This is always the point where hard and long during work has its start)
- 3.b.c Boot always clean system
- 3.b.d Check file differences manually file by file (existed and moved)
- 3.b.e If moved file is a link and existed file has a "double" (same size, familiar name f.e. =.so to =.so.0 then maybe everything will be ok
- If moved file and existed file have the same size and just different date and/or time then maybe everything will be ok

Otherwise = QUIT (maybe put this one in a sfs but not installing this one using save file and/or remastering cd)

4. Step/Rule
------------
4.a Next .pet
4.b Go back to 1.

@nooby again:

Thanks to smokey01 it is now possible to me to move the files to the server of smokey01.

He has created an ftp account and sent me the details. So, I am working on it.

Haven't subjected this to a lot of testing but when I turned off the "cpu graph" and left the rest running my cpu activity returned to normal.YMMV.
