HI WhoDO

I haven't managed to get the Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the menu yet, I Do think its a heck of a lot nicer than then old defaultmenu shutdown selection that had odd ball things ,like restat Xserver, or restart icewm.
It has the Power symbol which is obvious to most users that it will shutdown the system so maybe just come up with a new name for it, Like 'Ice Control ' short for 'Icewm Control Panel' . I also stayed up to 6:30am fixing that rude comment about 'Hot Glued' panel controls buttons, probably won't ever forget that statement. I've also been converting the Silver XP theme over to my lite series, its very close to the original, here's the run down, Silver XP out of the box was 1156kb now its 248kb extracted, or 40kb pet compressed compared to 316kb Smile, but I still have a bit of tweaking to it should change or minus the size much. Do you want it included in the IceWM pet package? I guess I could include it and you minus it if you like Smile

Also I noticed something if you go to
/usr/share/icewm/themes/ <---- and right click on the folder and select copy and name it SpreadBuntutest then click properties on both you'll see that the original is 109KB and the copied version is 324KB why did the folder triple in size just because you copied it?
ttuuxxx

Ps if you tar.gz them both, They are the same size 28kb which is also strange.

Hi

Question regarding latest Wifi drivers for EeePc 701SD and similar?

Will we include these drivers in this CE for this very popular netbook
or will users be expected to find and then to download
and then to install for themselves.

Not a major hurdle for seasoned puppy user's BUT for a new user?

Particulary a new user who has had a bit of a struggle getting a USB
or an SD card to boot - and after all that - WHAT the %$*@?

Last straw - mutter & fester etc. Can we make it easy?

As always - very best regards - Ray

Hate tobring it up but the Connection Wizard version of rtl8187 still does not work with rtl8187b dongles. It works ok with ndiswrapper in a19 I'm using that now, but refuses to let me load "b" in wrapper. This has been a problem in401 series, but I could not find it on the forum. Has anyone created a .pet or .dot pup to patch this .
Sad in the Kennels stray

I suggest you try the Puppy 4.x series extra drivers thread by tempestuous. If it's not there it probably doesn't exist. If it doesn't exist you could post a request for tempestuous in that thread.

Hope that helps.

What I always tell my kids when I need time to think about the question ... "We'll see" .... Razz Wonder if I'm gonna have to use that one on my new granddaughter too? Confused

It doesn't matter for Icewm - Ctrl + Alt + Del already brings up an options menu

Here's what I'd like to see:
1. The Refresh Menu option as a separate entry on the main menu of both JWM and IceWM menus (I can add that to the templates if I have the script and its name available) - it can sit at or near the Help menu option.

2. Your Shutdown dialog coming up when the shutdown icon is clicked on the IceWM main menu - only minus the Refresh menu option

3. Your Shutdown dialog called from JWM either when Ctrl+Alt+Del key combo is used in that window manager or when Shutdown is selected from the JWM main menu. HairyWill has it sorted. All he needs is your dialog script to bind it to.

4. JWM should also get the Refresh Menu option on the main menu.

I know that means some slight inconsistency between the two WM's, but it also means both react appropriately to the Ctrl+Alt+Del keypress combo.

We only hurt the ones we love, ttuuxxx! Razz I'm glad you reacted in a constructive way, but I do think 6:30am is over the top, even for you. Shocked I don't want your wife naming us in the divorce papers! Laughing

Better still, why don't you grab the entire XP series of Icewm themes from my directory on puppylinux.ca and give them ALL the ttuuxxx treatment? Then re-upload them so others can get them from there.

ATM Puppy-4.2alpha4 is 95Mb without CUPS! I'm still pruning, but extra themes are low on my priorities for the standard version, even the ones as tiny as yours. Only an update to your Odelite with a full title bar is a must have for now. Wink

I'll revisit that decision when I've finished uploading Alpha4 tomorrow night. By then I should know what I was able to prune out. CUPS dependencies are ALL OVER THE PLACE - Abiword, epdfview, etc., etc.

Haven't taught her how to grow a beard like Pa's yet! I think her mum and dad might object to that! Laughing Fortunately I think she's going to look a lot like her mum, which is a GOOD thing, IMHO. Rolling Eyes

Hmmm...interesting! I'll have a look and see if I can figure out why. Confused

Why would you calculate the hash of a pet? It already consists of a tgz with its hash appended to the end of the file. At the moment puppy contains no user option to check the integrity of a pet without installing it. It would be straightforward to copy the petget code that checks the integrity and make this available to the user as an explicit option.
Been there, wrote that.

Sorry, I really didn't mean offense. Actually I revised that post several times before hitting submit because my first several attempts were too strong.

If it makes you feel better, I also stayed up to 6:30am last "night". Except I was doing homework, not Puppy-work. I haven't had any free time at all this week, and very little the week before, and will have none next week either (four tests next week). I think they (the profs) have finally realized just who they're dealing with and now they're trying as hard as they can to crack me. Won't work of course, but I am starting to get pretty tired of it. I can't even get away in my sleep anymore - I close my eyes and I start dreaming about CMOS networks!

Karma? Laughing


I'm gonna go to bed. Maybe I can escape the MOSFETs this time. (I got stuck in them this morning and couldn't get untangled so that I could wake up).
