He WhoDo, as glasses go, my father back in Canada always had $300+ plus glasses, until one day he went to a dollar store, they had glasses already made with different prescriptions, so he said what the heck might as well try them out, and they worked, he now pays like $2.00 a pair, I've seen them in some shops in Australia also I think Go-Lo has them, maybe check them out. or next time your going by cheap shops, just pop your head in and ask if they have them, They make a great backup pair.

Pstopwatch/Ptimer 124kb removed when looking for space but happy to include again if we can trim the overall package significantly

Where did you get those numbers from? Lookning in the Puppy4 repo:
- Pwireless - 7kb
- Ptimer - 3kb
- Pstopwatch - 8kb

re-printing to a window shared printer, I pointed this out the other day in the RC1 thread - looks like it's a permissions thing on the smb.conf (does CUPS run as nobody and samba as root?)

I did a chmod 666 on smb.conf and the problem goes away. You still need to put a valid Windows user in the URL as in;

"smb://administrator@win-machine/printer-share"

- it does work without the username but you'll see a root cache error and not get feedback from the windows printer (like progress etc).

RC2, still no joy with printing via Officejet G85. It seems to configure the printer OK with the Gutenprint driver, but will not print a test page.
Gutenprint has worked before for me albeit on earlier Puppy versions.

I wonder if the kernel used in RC2 is the culprit here.

Also RC2 does not successfully load the driver for my ATI Radeon 3450 card. I have to say though that the only version of Puppy that has ever been able to do that is a Woof dPup that I built using Woof Alpha2.

Sadly though, this dPup also won't print via CUPS either.

So its back to Debian Lenny or Intrepid for me until these problems get resolved one way or the other.

Most modern screens, CRT too, do not require screensavers.
If you are watching a movie every 600 secs the screen goes blank . . .
I spend all my time wiggling the mouse, so to speak, during movies . . .

So maybe the default for menu / desktop / pupX should be screensaver OFF? Cool

Although I couldn't get my printers to work...
crappy Linux support for Oki C3100 colour laser
and Brother MFC-425CN....
at least they showed up... a first for me.

So a good start....No PPD Files?????for these printers.

I have a customer who'd like Maltese TV to work.
I can't seem to get that going.
I rescued his laptop ages ago and he really liked Puppy 4.12?

http://wwitv.com/portal.htm?http://wwitv.com/television/index.html?http://wwitv.com/tv_channels/6802.htm

Super One tv.

I will retry.
Anyway great work from all.
Looking good and having fun.

Chris.

Don't worry, Warren, you have already crushed both my feet by including tcl, icewm, clockskins, ....... Laughing

You should do what you think is best for Puppy, not for me, ttuuxxx, or anyone else Exclamation

Believe me, Sigmund, if I really DID step on your toes then "crushed" wouldn't begin to cover it! Laughing At 160kg plus, stacked into a 192cm frame, you might need a spatula to scrap them back out of the pavement! Shocked Laughing Laughing

I'm trying to do what is best for Puppy, but I am always mindful of the amount of effort you guys put into such things and I believe that effort deserves to be rewarded wherever possible. If you don't mind me substituting another icon theme for Deep Thought, I think it will only enhance the professional look you guys have given us with Pwidgets, frugal backgrounds, JWM themes, Gtk themes, clock skins, widgets of all persuasions, launch tray, etc.

Cheers, mate.

Where did you get those numbers from? Lookning in the Puppy4 repo:
- Pwireless - 7kb
- Ptimer - 3kb
- Pstopwatch - 8kb

The figures came from Barry's notes attached to each package in the packages.txt file. I must confess I didn't cross-check the sizes, just accepted his notes. Could he be quoting uncompressed sizes?

If that's all they are then they're definitely back IN! 18kb all up won't upset my size issues, but other things we're working on may well solve them.

Cheers.

Got it now, thanks Sigmund. I must have missed that one somehow. Cool

I may be wrong, Jack, but I think the problem is you need HPLIP rather than relying on the Gutenprint driver. I have NEVER had any joy with my PSC2310 using Gutenprint and I gave the printer to my son before I took the time to try advice from the forum about HPLIP.

Hope that helps.

I'm pretty sure MU posted a fix for ATI cards. Idea I haven't included that in RC2, but if you PM him I'm sure he'd point you to the thread or a Google Puppy Search would be just as helpful.

I'm actually old enough to remember when the toe-cutter gang was terrorising Sydney's underworld. It became so a crook couldn't make a dishonest living any more without risking a tarsal or two! Razz
