I am doing something wrong, I cannot paste anything into any of the pages.
When I right click on the page there is no paste option in the dropdown menu and clicking on the paste icon does nothing.

I would rather compose the data first then paste it than have to be on line while entering data.

Ian, do you know the "X"-way of pasting?

Select some text with the mouse.
Then click with the middle mousebutton, where it shall be pasted.

This is supported by most applications for the X-Window-System,even if they have no "paste"-icons.

Don't forget that you might need to have Xclipboard open in the background for Cut, Copy & Paste to work between some applications.

The standard Linux (i.e. non-Windows) keyboard shortcut for Cut is Shift-Delete and for Paste is Shift-Insert. I'm not sure what Copy is but one can Cut then immediately Paste after to have the same effect. BTW Rarsa told me about Shift-Insert in the IRC channel and I figured out the Cut shortcut after.

On the topic of keyboard shortcuts, Shift-Page Up scrolls up/back in console mode/CLI and AFAIK Scroll Lock pauses the text in console mode. Which is helpful for reading boot messages or the like.

Thanks men,
Mark the middle button trick works, I forgot the scroll wheel was the middle button am used to three buttons.

J thanks for the tips.

I can now spend time putting stuff together for the PLDP pre pages and just paste them in.

*scratches head*

I can't help but notice that the PLDP is going largely unmaintained.

Are there no volunteers for putting in some time in contributing to the PLDP?

I know I have a few "How To's" to add, once I run through them a little more closely, and I'm a long, long way from being a Linux guru, but if my hair pulling and teeth gritting will help others, count me in.

It seems that there is a great deal of help that is passed around on the forums that could quite easily be added to the PLDP, is there any reason why it isn't being?

Paul-B

Maybe it's time to close this and focus on the Wiki instead: http://puppylinux.org/wikka

How hard would it be to link this thread to the wiki, vice-versa and incorporate 'howtos' from that thread? Yes an editor would be needed but aren't we all editors? Wink
