I don't know if it is still valid, but gposil did work on apt-synaptic.

Hi Dejan! Very Happy

Just logging in here to let you know that I, too, am using your KDpup, and have been since I saw you posting about it here in this thread. I have to say this has got to be one of the most magnificent puplets I have ever experienced to date! - and I've been using Puppy since around version 1.0.2 or so. ( My first main Linux distro was Grafpup actually before moving to Puppy. )

I couldn't believe just how complete this was! And each day I'm still finding something remarkable about it which simply blows my mind! Shocked Now granted it's larger than the standard Puppy .iso, but yet you've managed to fit so much more for useful apps into this than even PCLOS used to brag about with their "2gigs of apps squeezed into a 700meg CD".

As for the Apt-Synaptic.pet everyone's mentioned? I've been using the one Gposil made found here: http://www.dpup.org/test/dpup482beta5-2.6.30.5/addons/ and if one is extremely careful using it then it does work to install Lenny packages AND has proven to be VERY stable for me and my system ( a DELL 2400 with 2.4gig pIV Intel processor, 512megs of RAM, 128meg cache, and a 160gig HD ). So far I've managed to install Blackbox, the complete LXDE Desktop environment, fbpanel ( for optional use with Openbox ), and a few other packages from Synaptic as well - and all is working fine here! Umm... the only thing I did break was Xscreensaver but I don't use that anyway as I use KDE's internal screensaver and when not using that I prefer the simple xset one as it demands far fewer resources.

At any rate Dejan, I can't sing loudly enough my praises for what you've done and accomplished here. Fabulous mate! Simply a stroke of pure genius!

KDpup has 10 stars in my book! Smile

Amicalement!/Cheers!

Howdy Dejan!

Hmm... glad you got MY email Dejan! I really am, as this - along with my above post ( and subsequently changed signature file I hope? ) - should hopefully let you know that I haven't been this enthusiastic over a Puppy build/puplet perhaps since the time of Grafpup. Very Happy In fact, I've been spending SO much time now back at the computer since you've posted the .iso file, just playing around with KDpup and having more fun than I can remember ( quite possibly since my days at Mozilla in fact! ) that my poor wife is starting to feel like a "computer widow" once again! LOL! Laughing

But getting back to the subject at hand here: As to having received YOUR email? Regretfully my friend, no. Sad And I haven't a clue as to why it hasn't come through to me either as I run with very lax spam filteration on my email client...

Perhaps you could try resending? And if you don't hear from me in either a reply email OR a quick note in this thread here in a few days then maybe you should attempt sending it via private message of the board forum? ( Although that doesn't always work either for me unfortunately Sad )

Good Luck Dejan! Bonne Chance mon ami!

There is actually a Kdenlive for KDE 3.5,


I know there is one but on their official site they don't reccommend using version for kde 3.x because current version is like complete rewrite or something

Quote:

Kdenlive 0.7.5 Debian packages are now available in Debian sid (unstable). Melt (MLT) is presently only available from Debian sid (unstable). Do not use Debian testing repositories, which offer older versions of Kdenlive.


Oh ok, weird. I figured you'd already know about that Kdenlive, just making sure...

Super sweet dejan! Some sound bites from my head:

Man that's a big sfs.

God I love that wallpaper.

Oh man! So *this* is what KDE is!

Folks, this is not your fathers puppy.

Oh man! So *this* is Amarok!

Hey little bouncing fox thingie! (running firefox)

Oh hai, wats this! (7 or 8 times)

Hey this is dpup, let's see about...(several times).

I'm gonna have to put this on the big box in the other room and see what it can do. Little heavy for my lappie, wbar and pwidgets don't seem to work so I want to see if I can fix 'em. I had to keep reminding myself that this wasn't some huge distro that I finally got working on my laptop after all these years. Very snappy, surprisingly so. This pup makes me say "what if" a lot, so I can see hours of messing around ahead. I've gotten so used to traditional puppies and JWM that I forgot what Linux can be if given some legs. Had a similar experience with PAW, but the addition of KDE is really something. Thanks for letting it out of the kennel, dejan!

Hey thanks tubeguy, btw wbar should work but there's some catch how gposil configured it for dpup will check later, hmm how did you try to run it, from wbar setup wizard?

From the top of my head, go to /var/ there's configuration file for wbar where it says true or false change it to true and then it should run.

Ran from wizard. The config file is where you said it was, changing to true worked. Thanks!

Some +2 years ago I tried a KDE 3.x.x sfs on my then 256MB Thinkpad.
I liked KDE, but it was slower then JWM. But I used it.
I started to have problems and I got no response from the developer, so I had to stop using it.

When I saw the iso, I decided to try again. As far as I can judge it's quicker then quirky and lucid, in fact very snappy, but can be due to the fact I have 1GB now. Indeed, after boot, I only have 50K available.

But I have problems.

My HDD's, specially sda2 on which there is a swap file and the external USB HDD's aren't seen. But strangely when creating a save file, I got them proposed all and selected sda2 to create the save file.

But also I have no internet. I got it without problems in dpup 484b4.
I need the ipw2100 module, but it isn't found.

So I have 2 show stoppers here. A pity.

How do you mean your HDDs aren't seen? When you run pmount they aren't shown there or fdisk -l in terminal or they're not seen as there's no icon for them on desktop? Because hotpup icons won't show on kde desktop as they do with jwm.
whatever was in dpup is also in kdpup, I haven't removed anything and so is ipw2100 module too,

Code:

# find /lib/modules/ -name ipw2100*
/lib/modules/2.6.30.5/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2x00/ipw2100.ko
/lib/modules/all-firmware/ipw2100_firmware-1.3.tar.gz
# modprobe ipw2100
#

I couldn't get pwidgets to work. Conky runs but the widgets themselves won't actually display, my understanding is that it is a KDE thing. So got standard conky running. Not as pretty but functional anyway.

Very happy to report that my USB sound thingie works!

Just more and more enamored with KDE and Konqueror file manager, best thing since, well, it's great.

I have a 1gig pupsave on an ext4 volume, very snappy startup. Man this is cool!

I must have been sleepy Embarassed
This morning after a fresh reboot, I found the network wizard and could configure it and connect.
And looking for ipw2100 with find, do find it now. Weird.

As for the HDD's I probably am confused with Ubuntu, which I tried out for a short while, where those resources are in media:/, which is where I looked to mount them.
Hadn't realized pmount was there. It's ok now.

So it's not possible to see the HDD's on the desktop if I understand well?

Any way 'playing' with KDE now.
As I like to have the system tray vertical on the left side, I can do so now, other puppies not giving this possibility or showing erratic behavior.

Well this is puppy after all, for devices to be shown in media:/ in konqueror you need correct /etc/fstab and also would need some hal backend hack so for mounting best to use puppy's tools not sure if hotpup could be hacked for kde.

No I want try hacking, this is outside my competence.
I'll get used to the earlier days when desktop drive icons didn't exists in puppy.
Enjoying KDE so far.
I specially appreciate the ease of configuring things through the control center.
