the frugal installer works good with the replaced grub wizard. full hd is a little sketchy but still works, did i put that in a previous post? im all caught up in real life today but, tomorrow im going to make a pet for libpopplers missing link. can i make a pet with just a link? or do i need to put the file and the link? ill find out tomorrow.
make easy, make nice.

-edit
i guess linking libs to older ones is cheating, maybe ill just use the correct poppler from slackware.

I suppose you could make an empty pet with a pininstall.sh script running "ln"... but why not just make a script, tar it up and all a user has to do is click a few times to untar it and then click the script.

Hmmmmmm...

That darn menu-icon bug.. I think it is to do with the icon_swithcer_cli script created especially for the jQ8 icons.. now it's kind of a guess, but if you made them the default when constructing from woof the bug might disappear... wishful thinking but possible. It's really a woof bug.

In /initrd/pup_ro2/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps (the read only layer) there are are bunch of *24x24.png files at 0 bytes ... they are represented as text files. AFAIK they shouldn't be there at all, just the "fill in" 24x24 icons... ie the ones with no representation of a menu item. (games24x24 is one.) I checked in the dpup.fs and the 431.sfs and they don't exist.. they are possibly created by the pinstall script for the jq8 icons.. which I haven't looked at. Anyway, if you edit the iso before upload deleting those 24x24 icons I think that would fix it. You can't delete them, they come back, (not in a frugal or live anyway). You could in a full.

Not much progress but at least some ideas.

Cheers

LATER... I just built an spup.. similar problems with libs and the darn icons in the menu.. deleted the jQ8 set ( in the build distro stage ) .. no difference.... hmmm... back to the drawing board? Laughing

ive been messing with the icons for a while now and am extra confused now.

has any one noticed if you change the icon theme to flat orange, most of them show up? there is a readme in /usr/local/lib/pixmaps/x11/themes that talks about changing the color to suit different themes. maybe this could be a suitable workaround. im not sure.

deleting the empty files doesnt work either, i tried it a long time ago during ./3builddistro.
this evening i tried to remove them from a full hd install, no luck. the emptys came back when x restarted......or sometime inbetween their removal and my going back to see if they were really gone.

back to the drawing board indeed

I'll confirm that switching to the flat orange icons places most , if not all, in the menus.What that means, I'm not sure but it's a start to a solution.

i like your screenshot james, the yellow looks good on that dark background.
i have got my old job back ($$$$) and will be travelling for the next couple days. im going a lot closer to the north pole than most people care to get at this time of year. i will be working 12 hour days, 7 days a week, but....because its about -30 outside, and im leaving my family behind in victoria....i will have lots of time to play linux.

i seem to be the only one who has problems with the 2.6.30.5 kernel and have been working on a retro with smp. maybe when 31.5 shows up in a woofable package i can use that instead. 31.5 is in the newest woof script but i cant find the package for it. oh well, i just want my icons fixed for now.

tty in a couple days.

-edit
flat orange works because those icons are generated from .svg files. it looks to me like the pngs are created when you change the icon theme.
if you look at the dir for flat orange, there is about a dozen pngs and the rest are svgs.

a guy pm'd me today about slack 13 puppy, he asked me some questions i couldn't answer. but here's his thread, i think hes on to the next big thing.....

Don't get too excited about this, I'm currently trying to build the spup-460 I wanted to build from Slackware 13.0 packages, with slackerson's scripts.

I'll try to catch bugs n' stuff if Woof succeeds ... it should. Debian uses old, frozen packages, and Slackware just has a slow package release cycle, and I like it. I'll see what I can do with the 13.0 thing ... from all your posts here I understand that getting spup to work is easier than dpup.

glad to see you back on board iguleder.

i haven't had a computer for the last week because air canada lost my bag and sent it to jamaica for the holidays. i wish i went to jamaica.....oh well my laptop came back with a good tan and an ear for reggae music.

I just downloaded 451 this morning and all is well other than the Cups printing setup does not work. The initial popup comes to ask if install new printer and normally afer a small wait the default browser arrives with the goods and away we go. With this I get a page with some driver info etc then a blank page with 404 NOT FOUND This has not happened to me before with the many puppy variations I have used. Any thoughts?
Also I cannot change the number of virtual desktops,strangely Dpup is the same.I have always been able to change to my preferred number of 4 but a popup says "new config corrupt ,keeping original"
Other than these 2 items all is good.
Regards Dennis
OOPS!! I played around a bit and got my desktops etc so that was me.still no joy with Cups. D
Just tried http://localhost:631/ Result Not Found.
Patriot solved the problem with a download of a pet on the Printing with Unix thread so anyone with the same problem have a look there.
Regards Dennis

i am doing ./2createpackages.slackerson as i type this.....451 works quite well. libpoppler can be cheated with a link or you can go ahead and install the correct poppler from slack 12.2....other than that i have been using it all the time. a few bugs here and there with the devx and src.

from here on out ill be on to 13. spup130 and beyond.

Just thought I'd report that I installed Fluxbox from the Slackware repository and it installed and is working fine. Smile
