What's up with that?

Personally I prefer to try before I buy.

Tried Macpup 3.0 a while ago. On my Compaq F570 US laptop, I got blank screen after i chose the screen resolution (1280x800). Went well on my desktop PC.

The menu text are hard to read with the default theme which is beautiful by the way. If only there was a way to make the text white instead of black (on dark brown bckground).

Never mind, I got it.

And it's BEAUTIFUL!

But I can't use it. The fonts are too small even at 800x600 and black on dark brown is nearly invisible.

OK , I have some extra themes for everyone. They are in two .pets . The first is the Fox3extra.pet it has the two themes that I was going to put in Fox 3 but left out to keep the .iso size down around that of opera061's . The themes are A-wood-macpup2.edj and Macpup-WB.edj

The second is Next-1.pet It has the A-SBlack-Esp1Macpup.edj and the updated version of that theme Luxblue-macpup.edj It also has two backgrounds, stars.edj is a standalone version of the background from A-SBlack-Esp1Macpup complete with animated stars. And stars2.edj that is a animated version of the background from the Luxblue theme that has stars cause the theme background dosen't.

All of these themes are by Verdegal37 and I modified them for Macpup.Just install the .pets and select the new themes......

http://macpup.org/runtt21/

There are other themes and backgrounds on my page most of them will get repackaged into .pet's this week. Enjoy !!! Very Happy

Just downloaded it now, and made a (frugal) install on the Community Centre computer.

It certainly looks good / impressive, but I don't know how people will take to virtual desktops Enlightenment uses - move the mouse too far one way or another (left or right) over the edge of the application window and you're looking at a blank screen instead of Firefox etc.

This might be too much for some of the centre's users, who vary in condiidence and knowledge where computers are concerned.
Can you turn off virtual desktops in Enlightenment?

BTW, I was very impressed by the automatic configuration mode in CUPS; it not only detected the two networked printers we've got here, but identified them and set them up without my having to do anything.

CUPS has come on a long way since Eric Raymond famously failed to set up a networked printer using it (as well as Puppy's implementation of it being accurate and comprehensive).

Hi Colonel Panic...yes, if you just check Runtt's first post on this release, he describes how to go about it....he forgot to turn it off Very Happy
