Tried it but nothing happenes. Anyways changed the run action so now it opens with Beaver. They used to open with leafpad by default but maybe I changed the run action accidentally. I'm was still trying to get the hang of a single click opening a file. Got fed up and now changed it to double click.

This just happened to me too. All of the sudden, as of yesterday, leafpad won't open. I click on the icon on the desktop and nothing. What version of Puppy are you using? I'm using the 1.0.5 alpha 2.

I don't have a clue as to what happened. All the system "run as" and mime types where right, leafpad just died for some unknown reason.

I rebuilt it and all is well again:

If you are running puppy 1.0.5 and include the usr_devx.sfs file in the root of your install, you can run make from the command line.

There is no Puppy 1.0.5 - yet (and Barry may take up gardening before releasing it . . .)

Puppy 1.0.5 Alpha r2 is a quick release for compiling C code and showing the new desktop - for day to day usage 1.0.4 is stable and usable.

I evaluated 1.0.5 Alpha r2 and found it usable (a day and a half of intense computing) but I am back in 1.0.4

I'm too lazy to download 1.0.4, so I'm going to be using 1.0.5a2 until something better comes out Smile I haven't noticed any problems that can stop me yet. Maybe its because we (1.0.5a2 and I) are both only half-baked, so we mesh to form a whole pizza. Or maybe Barry is just so good that his alphas come out as betas.

I haven't run into this problem yet, but we'll see...
