Thanks for the prompt response. That new verison of EZpup looks awesome!

However, everytime I try to download it from here:
http://puppylinux.ca/tpp/EZPup/
I get this message:
Quote:
Concurrent download limit exceeded.


and the mirror here:
http://pkagfiles.net/puppy-files/window-managers/EZpup-4.0
gives me a "forbidden" message Sad

Is the file available somewhere else? Or can someons plz mirror it? If I get a copy I can upload it to my ftp Wink

Regards,
Alvaro

EDITED: NM, just found a working mirror here:
http://dotpups.de/puppy4/dotpups/WindowManagers/
Wink

I'm very happy with the puppy! Very Happy

Whodo, a quick question;

When Using EZpup's window manager, how can I get the free space indicator that comes with Puppy's original JWM by the clock? Oh yes, and how can I take screenshots? I haven't been able to do so Sad Is there an app ready for puppy?

regards,

Alvaro

Hi afecelis! And welcome to the Puppy Kennels mate! Smile

If you go to the menu, then to "Graphics", you should see either "mtpaintscreenshot" or just plain ol' "screenshot"---in my 4.0 it's named "mtPaint-snapshot screen capture". Talk about a mouthful, huh? LOL!

That will give a 10sec pause for you to make any changes before the shot is presented to you in mtPaint. I usually save mine in the .jpeg/.jpg format rather than the.png. Holdover from my 98se days from YEARS ago I guess. Wink

Let us know if that helped, okie? We do care around here.

Best of luck my friend!

Thank you very much Eyes-Only! Smile
Indeed it is a warm community! I come from Ubuntu and I'm very very very impressed by the power of the puppy. Today, I took my usb drive over to my dad's and loaded it on his laptop and he couldn't believe it!!! And precisely these days I'm formatting my uncle's old pc that had win98se on it!!! coincidence! Wink Puppy will run great on it!

Thanks fot he screenshot tip, already found theproggie. Smile
Will post some screenies soon.

regards, and thanks a lot!

On the Quicklaunch menu ( folder icon on taskbar) there is an option to edit Startup. In there you need to have the following lines, if they don't already exist:
Code:
killall freememapplet-1.3
#sleep 2 && iu_nice -n 19 /root/my-applications/bin/freememapplet-1.3 &

Removing the # will allow the program to run at startup. Check for the location and version in /root/my-applications. If it isn't there, open /root/.jwmrc-tray (hidden file - click eye icon to make visible) to see what version JWM uses.

Hope that helps.

whoa! Whodo, you must be one of Puppy's devs, aren't you? Wink

Thanks for the valuable info. I'll try it and let you guys know how things go.

One more thing, I use a 1280x1024 screen resolution, and while I use the same res in windows and ubuntu and have no problems with fonts, in puppy they're hard to read and very small. Is there a way to get fonts with a higher definition or a tip to improve their aspect in puppy? Thanks a ton!

meanwhile, here's my desktop so far, using both icon and icewm themes developed "in-house" Wink


regards,
Alvaro

Whodo, I gound the file to modify, but I got these options:
Code:
killall freememapplet-tray
#sleep 3 && /root/my-applications/freememapplet_tray_puppy215ce/freememapplet-tray &


So I remove the # to uncomment it. But when Iook in: /root/my-applications , in effect it isn't there. From checking the hidden jwmrc-tray file, I can see it uses the application "freememapplet" but there's no path to it, and I already looked in the possible folders wehere the system may find it and had no luck. Yet, if I open a console and tye in "freememapplet" it stars, in a weird location on the screen, but starts, Wink so it's recognized system-wise.
Don't worry, it's not that bad if I don't have it by the clock Smile

regards,
Alvaro

Change the startup file to read as follows:
Code:
killall freememapplet-tray
sleep 3 && freememapplet &

It should run on startup.

You can change the font size at Menu>Desktop>Set Global Font Size and for fonts in the IceWM window manager such as the taskbar you need to edit /root/.icewm/preferences or prefoverride files.

Hope that helps.

thanks a lot Whodo. Puppy has got so much to explore! You begin with the basic stuff, then you want window managers, then you find th epuplets, then you see how it easy it is to update your puppy by replacing files, etc etc etc!!! It's a never ending story!
So I found out Flexxxpup Nibiru and tried it out (also tried out other several puplets on my smaller usb drive), now I got the best of both worlds, the looks and many nice proggies pre-installed. Then digging the forums I found out there were pets to install nvidia drivers, python ,etc etc. Now I got the latest Blender running smooth as silk!!!!

Now glxgears runs at 13000-17000 fps!!! Very Happy And I got my frespace indicator by te clock!

I'm loving it!
many thanks for all the support. I'll keep checking the forums.

regards,
Alvaro

Beautiful screenie Alvaro! Shocked WOW! And that's awesome frame rate on the gears---Holy Moley!

What's even better than all that though?

Is seeing someone having the FUN they were originally MEANT to have had with their computer. Now that's precious, and not even all the gold in the world can compare to the feeling that gives me mate! Seriously.

I know that many others here feel similarly. Well... maybe they'd leave off "all the gold in the world" part. hehe! But I've already got all I want: I've got grandchildren. Smile

In all seriousness though, I think this is what computers were meant to be for the home environment, see? Something you you used to keep track of the finances, did letters upon, fiddled with for enjoyment purposes (and not to get the latest virus off from!), did artwork, let your imagination roam upon fertile ground, you know?

Instead---look at what they became! Something we put more effort into keeping running than actually DOING. A great waste of time.

For me? Linux has made my time both productive and enjoyable again. Smile I think it'll do likewise for you, especially the Pup, eh?

Glad you're happy Alvaro. Explore! Create! And share!

Amicalement/Cheers!

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
Eyes-Only, your words truly are both inspirational and motivating! Very Happy
Indeed they describe how I feel right now seeing and feeling so much power in something so small.
I also agree Linux was thought to offer its users a true computing experience without limitations of any type, but with the Puppy I'm feeling something new. Having the chance of taking the whole experience with you, your files, your work, your games, your dreams.... really takes the whole concept beyond anything seen before Wink

I was a 100% windows user, but then I played around with Mandrake, Gentoo, SUSE, and lately Ubuntu, which I'm very fond of, but the Puppy (and its community) is something new and refreshing in the Linux scene!

Thanks a lot for the kind words about the screenie, I hope to post some more soon but in the proper forum, as I'm totally deviating the direction of this one. I already got the developers sfs package running on startup so now I hope to be able to compile some stuff of my own, and I hope to be able to play a couple of 3d accelerated games to see how the puppy behaves. Wink

warmest regards,

Alvaro

EDITED: now I'm the one who has to say "Holy Moley! " Wink
With the developer sfs, I was able to compile yafray's source, and now I got blender+yafray running! amazing! nice! cool! no words! Wink

This is a great theme, and would fit perfect as a icon-theme in Puppy 4.2.
Mainly because it
- looks good
- it is flat - the opposite as the DeepThought icon-theme.
- it could be repacked in grayscaled mode. This will half the size of the theme.

To get it work perfectly in my Puppy 4.2 approach, it will need a few more icons:

burn48.png
calc48.png (calculator)
clock48.png
edit48.png (notepad)
games48.png
imageviewer48.png
network48.png
printer48.png
scanner48.png

GREAT WORK !!!
Sigmund

Thank you, Sigmund.
I am going to make the lost icons.

I know about your great works for the DeepThought, and I like them.

Thank you. Very Happy
