Where does the "My Documents" folder on the desktop come from? How can we get rid of it?

"My Documents" is your home directory. You can disable the desktop
in Pcmanfm's preferences > Desktop > Manage the desktop and show file icons. And use Rox-Filer/CompizFusion/xsetroot to handle desktop wallpaper.
If you want to remove only the "My Documents" icon try to download the source package and hack it.

Thanks. Sounds like more than I thought. I'll wait for Mark's ICEWM sfs and see if I prefer it to Pcman.

I got fusion-icon to work, just installed the python depends, so that is all good... the only problem is when i start it (fusion-icon) the screen goes totally white and it works, but utterly sluggish, so I checked the xorg.conf, and it say
Section "Device"
Driver "vesa" #card0driver

Should it not say xorg, I have run xorgwizard multiple times. BTW i have nvidia 8600M card but xorg says nothing of that, i'lll try installing nvidia from www but I have already tried that with unnamed, and it did not work...

Crying or Very sad

Bug:
Xorg-7.4-video-input-apps-i686-wow_411.sfs

You run xorgwizard, but just get a black screen.
Solution:
delete all sun drivers in /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/.
They are the reason, even if you have no "sun" graficscard.
After I deleted them, my S3 Savage was detected correctly.

I'll post a link, where you can download a rebuilt "Xorg-7.4-video-input-apps-i686-wow-patched_411.sfs" without the sun drivers in my next message.

NEW version 02 is here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=268084#268084

---------------------------------
Happy new year! Very Happy
I just came back from northern germany today, and am very tired.
So no details, but you can get downloads already.

The easiest way to test them:
1.) Start with a NEW savefile (or backup your old one first).
Then boot with newyearspupMU.iso.
It is 200 MB instead of 67, and includes "addons-1".
In addition, I included libSDL and from wow the files from the Mesa and glibc-locale sfs.

2.) The other way:
Use wows Iso.
Start with a NEW savefile (or backup your old one first).
Then add the addons you like.

Exclamation They modify some systemfiles, so you need the backup, if you want to revert to wows original version Exclamation

The most interesting is "Icewm_411.sfs".
It includes Icewm, and a "Desktopchooser".
With that, you can switch among different desktops.

See the screenshots, or the unfinished documentation.

Get all here:
http://puppyisos.org/isos/2008-07-to-12/Puppy-4-K2.6.27.5/iso-01/Addons-by-MU-02/

Password:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=28930

I'll post more details in the next days.
The documentation then will explain how everything works, and also include a small package with desktopchooser and desktopoptions, but without any desktop.
So it can be used to modify any other puplet.
The icewm_411.sfs also works with Puppy 4.12 after a quick test Smile

------------------------
Here are some notes about my patches on the systemfiles:
1.) MuppyFiler+Quickmount+Freemem+xscreensize+gqview+backgrounds+sfscombiner+clocks+pbdict2_411.sfs:

-- these files get overwritten:
- Pupybasic 2.6 (wow included 2.5)
- filemnt patched fixes when 2fs files were not mounted
- /sbin/dir2sfs now accepts -nolzma or another other option for mksquashfs


2.) Icewm_411.sfs

-- these files get overwritten:
- /root/.xinitrc: run desktoploop instead $CURRENTWM, removed start of Rox-filer (that now is run by other scripts).
- yaf-splash + gxmessage to display utf8
- /usr/local/apps/Wallpaper fixes bug that puppypin is unset, add support for conky usind puppybackgroundsetter2.
- conky displayed further down, pmusic in it is deactivated as it used too many resources.
- /usr/local/bin/restart-lxde.sh checks different profiles
- /usr/sbin/fixmenus - does only run if changes were made in /usr/share/applications, support for localized icewm menu.
- new: /usr/sbin/run-xcompmgrnodock.sh - added C as parameter, so no longer draws shadows on docks like conky
- /usr/X11R7/bin wmpoweroff wmreboot restartwm might fix if X is not exited. See: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=263019#263019
- /usr/sbin/chooselocale
removed downloadoption, run fixmenus afterwards, fix bug restarting X (see restartwm)
- /etc/xdg/templates/* modified the logout dialogs, added option to reload menu, added german icewm template.
----------------------------------------------------
-- these files are added in the base filesystem:
- wallpaper german translation

Thank you Mark and WOW for working together to create an exceptional distribution. Your latest release is the best yet, relatively stable, and pushing the state of the art.

Subject description: Puppy-Exton LXDE 2009
 

I just want to say that I have made a new puplet today based on wow´s pup of 68 MB.

I have added some programs/stuff so the ISO-file is much bigger - 221 MB.

You can read about Puppy-Exton LXDE 2009 here: http://www.puppylinux.org/downloads/puplets/puppy-exton-lxde-2009

Could you possibly share this driver? The driver pet that wow pointed to works for my other nvidia cards but crashes with my 8600.

The Nvidia 8800 GTS also crashes with the Nvidia drivers.
The reason is, that nvidias symlink /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/libwfb.so is incompatible with xorg 7.4 and some cards.
Solution:
to start X type:

mp /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Replace
Code:
driver "nvidia"

with
Code:
driver "nv"


Now you can start X by typing
xwin

Then extract the attached archive in /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/.
Then modify xorg.conf again to use
Code:
driver "nvidia"
and restart X.

The archive contains wows original Xorg 7.4 libwfb.so.

I also made an updated pet with it included (10 MB):
