PostPosted: Tue 26 Jan 2010, 15:25    Post subject: EXE installer  

Here's a fully-branded EXE installer for Puppy Arcade 6

Download Mirrors: http://www.multiupload.com/OYIO7ZJLP0
(filesize : 117mb, md5sum: 5703147a3464b2045094f9e3fb88b763)

Details:

This will install GRUB4DOS and modify boot.ini. This is important.
BACKUP FIRST!! Then...

Run the installer in windows. The installer will copy all files required for a frugal install install into your chosen folder. It also adds a menu entry into 'Add/Remove Programs', so it can be easily uninstalled.

After installation, you can then reboot and select either Windows or Puppy Arcade... Smile This is not heavily tested, but it worked for me.

Limitations (READ THIS!):

This can ONLY be installed to your Windows partition, which must be either FAT32 or a fully-defragged and uncompressed NTFS hard drive.

I just got a new computer so I can play with puppy again. I decided to kick things off by taking a look at your latest project.

It looks pretty smooth, but then again I can only test in Virtualbox. The choice of apps is good

I am disappointed that you left my joke box in the misc. tab, but did not edit the text in the box. Without the dog picture it just will confuse people. That is the canine setting for the dogs. It needs to be clarified.

I will play more and report back. Until then enjoy a mirror.Smile

I had no idea what that tab was for, so I left it. Your feedback will be appreciated.
This one should be a lot easier to use. And thanks for the mirror.

Is it possible to remaster the ISO so it will include the ROMs I have so I can play them on any computer?

Personally, I would just swap the Puppy Arcade live CD for a CD full or roms .... But yes, you can... Use the remaster scripts in either the control panel or the start menu. Choose 'simple' then follow the instructions and it will copy all your files into the new remaster...

You can also type 'pupremaster2' or 'remasterpup' int the terminal - they are different remaster scripts, both are included in Puppy Arcade.. One of them (Barry Ks, opens with the wider GUI) will not remember your all files in the new one unless you copy them.

Hey.
I'm a bit of a newbie to Linux (though I do have the basic understandings and a reasonably advanced knowledge of Windows), and I'm having difficulty with your Puplet.

When Arcade boots wbar it covers the entire screen. Wherever I move the cursor, wbar blows up the icon. I can't left or right-click on the desktop (or see it - I see just wbar and black).

But I can access the taskbar. Using this I can terminate wbar (and I have) but I can't figure out a way to change the way Arcade boots wbar. Neither the wbar config accessible from your control panel or the emulator desktop menu helped and I have no idea how to fix this or to disable the booting of wbar at startup. Can you advise me?

Also, the system I'm trying it on is very old (64 MB ram, a few hundred megahertz) but does work quite well with puppy linux and damn small linux. The resolution (if it matters) is 1024 X 768.

Thank you for creating this wonderful version of puppy and for reading my noob-ish wall of text!

I think you will not be the only person who experiences this. This is a problem on some bootups and was one reason for disabling the automatic loading of wbar on v5.. But lots of people said they wanted wbar to load as default in the next one. Hey ho...

It only ever happened to me on 800x600... A change of resolution always fixed this issue for me.

However, to disable wbar is quite easy...

open up /root/.xinitrc, and scroll to the bottom.. You'll find a line near the bottom that starts like this

Code:
sleep 3 && wbar ...

Comment out this line, with a # at the start, and restart x.

So now it looks like this:

Code:
#sleep 3 && wbar ...

Wbar can be started again through the start menu or with this command....

Code:
wbar -config /root/.emubar -jumpf 1 -above-desk -pos bottom -offset 40 -nanim 3 -zoomf 1.5 -idist 6 -isize 42 -bpress -balfa 0 -falfa 100

It looks better thanks to afgs (wallpapers and new logo) and thanks to technosaurus - for providing a simple way of adding wallpaper without running a ROX desktop..

About the torrent, I'll see what I can do! Maybe today...
