@Sir Duncan: I don't know about JWM, but Rox does support SVG. I've been using SVG for my icons since mid-June.

Puppy currently has a utility that takes a set of SVG icons and creates raster images from them at various sizes. So if JWM or some particular program can't handle them, we could still make the originals through SVG and then have that program create an icon specifically for those programs that need them.

Also, a program that doesn't seem to support SVG may actually support it in the vanilla form but just not be compiled with support for it in that instance.


GTK stock icons (like the generic "open", "new file", "cut" buttons) can also be SVG.

Ya I'm in the same boat it says that I've already signed up and theres no new way of making account, If possible could someone give cb88 and myself a account on Barry's Blog and PM or email us with the details, eg, username and password. Thanks

@AJ

Good to see Puppy isn't the only one having 'people issues'

Hopefully this will remain 'an awareness'

I've just spent a good 1/2 hour rereading the early pages

There have been some good questions posed, but little I can find by way of conclusions
I personally like the contributions which are clearest to me & inspire confidence - favourite examples pizzasgood, cb88, hairywill
I don't like personality posts - careful ttuuxxx, small steps, eh?

I have a suggestion, which I will ask for contributors, as I don't know HOW to do it, but hope people will understand the WHY Smile

What are people looking for in Puppy?
[& is this what you think of as development]

I believe it should be possible to analyse searches by quantum/context
Anyone know how?
I believe this will provide the 'missing ingredient' which will help Puppy [development] stay 'ahead of the game'

Most of all - make it fun
If there's no enjoyment - why do it/use it?

comments?

PS as a result of posts made while I typed, I think the issues affecting peoples networking capabilities/download speeds needs addressing,
and maybe a wishlist for donations for the purpose would help?
If so, I'm happy to start a thread................ Wink

Would this be a possible middle ground between those who favor a big brother distro and those who favor compiling puppy ourselves. How about putting some energy into making puppy easy to compile for? Then, it seems to me, we would have the advantages of both sides, good availability of programs and programs built for our OS.


I have no idea how possible this is...besides just making more libraries, etc., and maybe a variety of dev_XXX.sfs files...but I would be very much in favor.

That said, I also use puppy to wean friends and acquaintances off of Windows, so I've been cursorily looking into getting dpkg/aptitude working on puppy (or underdog, but that's a bit...confusing). Sure, using base ubuntu or debian repos would be less compact, but it'd be amazingly easier for first-time users to get new applications (and not call me).

My thoughts on the subject of decision making/voting...I'm not a developer (just learned to compile from source last month) and thus am not able to make the technical decisions surely necessary in modifications of puppy's core. You don't want my vote on that.

But I've often dependent on the whims of the puppy and puplet community (and still am: 4.1 nOP, pretty please?) and what I'd enjoy greatly would be some sort of organized program for feature requests, so happy puppy developers know what's wanted and the happy puppy non-devs feel they've participated and been heard. On that note I'd also really appreciate being able to see what all y'all are doing. Reading technical discussions makes me feel...empowered, and keeps me interested.

In the interests of that, then, here's my short list of requests:
1. Easier uninstallation of preinstalled programs (because searching and deleting is often a hassle for me)
2. Easier installation of new programs (maybe it's just me, but the interface of the puppy package manager kills me)

this one's maybe a little out there...
3. Some system for making .sfs 'puplets' that could be loaded on top of the pup_XXX.sfs file and easily swapped for another. Not sure if that's possible, worth it, or even a common desire.

Also (obviously) more drivers & optimizations. With 4.1 finally all of my computers have everything supported out of the box, which is amazing.

Just to keep everyone aware Cool
4.1.2 (the bug fixed Dingo) is out.
Warren (WhoDo) will be working on 4.2 Code name DT (Deep Thought) which is based on the bugfix.

There are no surprises in 4.2 BUT it will look great - we know that.

4.3? Well we may decide to use Firepup (that would be popular)
For now please support Warren any way you can (bug fixes, updates to programs etc)

Even further ahead remember Barry is working on what he does best, innovation - Woof has hit version 0.0.0 and people are already clamouring to test and run it.

As soon as I have worked out how to do it I will be creating an on line kennel in SecondLife . . .

Long live Puppy
Woof Woof

I have a wealth of experience in "Linux Newbs", having used puppy for close on five years, and also a background in user interface design. I would be happy to contribute that experience to the next puppy development, whoever leads it, if it will promote Puppy Linux.

Ive also got experience in testing, and access to a lot of people who would be willing to test alpha/beta/RC versions. I hope to see some of the suggestions for improving the development/testing/bugtracking process here being implemented.
