Morning, all.

Just for reference, so that y'all know, the included YAD binary in /usr/bin appears to be broken in the ISO download. I've noticed that it won't display certain YAD icons correctly (comes up with the wee text-icon picture, with an 'X' on it, instead).

Running the version check from the terminal indicates that the sym-link from /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0 loaders.cache to /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders is broken. This is generated by YAD at boot time.

Accordingly, I've compiled & packaged a new version of the current yad-0.40, which appears to have fixed the issue. Anybody needs it, you can find the .pet package here:-

Tangential, but how do you get rid of the one that looks like a moving histogram? Is that charting the CPU usage? Anyway, I can find no way to close it, and I don't know what it's called.

A quick right click, on a tray icon, will usually close most of the icons.
Normal operation.

Right click and hold right mouse button down on an icon.
That will make a menu pop up.
Still holding the right mouse button down.
Navigate the menu and release the right button, when the pointer is over a menu item you want to select.

That is xload.
It basically shows the system usage as stuff is running.
the number of processes that want to use the cpu.
However, it is not showing CPU usage, but overall system usage.

It is not a bad thing to watch for.
How much load you are putting on the overall system.

If you rally want to get ride of it.
It is an entry in the file that configures the tray.
/root/.jwmrc.tray
This is a hidden file.
Open in text editor.
Remove the entry for xload.

However, all the tray icons are there for some good reasons.
They all provide useful info and stuff you will find you need to know, as you use Puppy.

Hi Mike -I went looking at that and did not find "/etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders " mentioned in the text file at all . Can you tell me where I will find that in there ..Line ?

Keyboard configuration error. I added a second layout, choose the variant, choose the toggle setting, works fine until I reboot the system. I have to set it up all over again each time.


Just in case that someone had the same problem, here is a quick fix:

- Add your language variants as normal - one more time!
- Check your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file that your language options were added.
- Copy xorg.conf into /root/my-documents.
- Move keyboardlayoutfix from Startup/disabled to Startup.
- Edit keyboardlayoutfix and replace the command with:
Code:
cp /root/my-documents/xorg.conf /etc/X11/ && exec /usr/local/apps/XkbConfigurationManager/XkbApplyNow

- Restart and enjoy!

I have attached my own files (full folder structure) to help you understand it. On xorg.conf, lines 64-66 are my language options. Modify to suits your needs.

Cheers! Smile

Hello.

We've had the same problem for French for a long time. Our solution was
this little script sym-linked in /root/Startup. Adapt at will.

IHTH. BFN.
Code:
#!/bin/ash
# ~/my-applications/bin/qc.sh OR
# /opt/local/bin/qc.sh
# -=> Sym-link in /root/Startup <=-
# IMPORTANT ###########################
# Objectif : activer le clavier Québec (dit "fr-legacy") ou
# un autre clavier francophone. /
#
# Goal: properly activate the "fr-legacy" keyboard or other Francophone keyboard.
# (The usual way was too iffy.)
#
# Note to Anglophones: since you don't need this, the script is made such
# that your keyboard set-up is not altered in any way.
#
# Persons speaking a language other than French or English : you may use the section
# "other_laguages_here" reserved expressly for you.
