I forgot to report what may be a bug..
After running Squeeze for the first time, a save-file can be created. A window then opens giving you the choice of a normal save-file or an encrypted one. Now this window wasn't centered on screen, but somewhat lowered. The result was I could not see the buttons at the bottom of the window. Could not move this window either.
So, in total despair Laughing , I hit Enter and so created an encrypted save-file...which wasn't what I wanted.

Maybe this is not Squeeze related, maybe it was just a momentary hiccup. Wanted to report it anyway.


Good you warn about this. Can somebody make a screencath on what it says so one know how to use tab or something to make the right choice please

There are other puppy puplets that act that way too.

I wish there was some way to know what the txt says there in the unknown.

OK guys I've been doing some fluxbox hacking today and am pleased to announce this build compiled on 004 with menu button hack found here

Features: Menu button on functional taskbar with systray/clock and workspace switcher
Added fluxbox menu generator compatible with puppy's xdg menus (I believe it's rarsa's work, many thanks!)
Added line to fixmenus that automatically refreshes menu after package install but there's also entry under fluxbox menu to refresh too.
You can change wallpaper from fluxbox menu.
Pet includes modified wmreboot, wmpoweroff etc. scripts to allow shutdown from fluxbox menu.
I added few keyboard shortcuts (Winkey + S = mtpaint screenshot; +G = geany; + B = defaultbrowser; +R = rox)
All other usual fluxbox features as pseudo transparency etc...

I removed many styles that come by default to save size but I made separate pet for them.
FluxConf is also available as separate pet

LINK: fluxbox_menubtn-1.1.1-i486-squeeze.pet 701 KB, no additional deps needed
Other optional packages and themes are here:

Wow, dpup looks great with Fluxbox Shocked

I'm off to start the 005 work ... does anyone know how to activate the Windows/printscreen keys in JWM? Let's bind them to the menu and mtpaint snapshot thing. Idea

Iguleder. I think you can bind PrtSc button to executable using xbindkeys-config. Here is my pet made in luci for xbindkeys-config. It is easy to use. Just play with it.

I know, it is big. I used ubuntu repo, not compiling and I didnt check are all dependencies really needed.

Also I dont know how spesific the button info is. For laptops for example sleep button has been quite generic so it works independent of laptop model.

Alright, added to 005 Smile

Atm I'm building the first 005, a clean Woof run, with all the new stuff since 004, let's hope it works well Smile

EDIT: more juicy details.

This one has ffmpeg from Quirky plus some extra libraries compiled on 004 because Quirky's are a bit older. It has new Seamonkey and DeaDBeeF, Squeeze-Right-Click, new mhwaveedit-retrovol, the cool wallpapers, new volume/wireless icons, new Abiword with plugins, "sheet" instead of "calc", a dummy xorg.conf and many other tiny improvements I can't think of Very Happy

is it possible to turn wi-fi device off on laptop?
There is no "rfkill" command and "rfkill-upgrade-k2.6.33.2.pet" is not suitable for dpup (but for 5.1.1)

Ummm... interesting. The kernel is same in both.

I added rfkill from Debian to 005, let's see what happens Smile

2.6.33.2 kernel used in luci does not have rfkill enabled.

Rfkill needs compiling the rfkill module and all addendum wireless moduless just like tempestuous did with that rfkill-upgrade.pet. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=452093#452093
Also compiling the kernel rfkill enabled is solution Smile I compiled the kernel in luci rfkill and hibernate enabled. It worked but the initrd.gz update was pain.

I think we should wait for the 5.2 kernel. playdayz wants 2.6.35.x or 2.6.36.x, that's another reason why I didn't bother with compiling a custom kernel for dpup.

I never compiled a Puppy kernel, but I think it's time to try, once 005 is out Smile
A 2.6.35.4 with BFS, ck1, Zen patches, latest Aufs2 and some extra performance tuning patches ... sounds great, doesn't it? Very Happy

EDIT: dejan555, can you upload your hacked DeaDBeeF sources? I'd like to try something interesting, menu entries for retrovol and gxine Wink

Ummm ... I think we shouldn't update mtpaint for two reasons:
- Extra size
- InkscapeLite is no longer needed and it's the only svg editor that is this small

However, if we chose to compile mtpaint, the "draw" icon can be replaced with a HTML editor icon, but nobody uses HTML editors these days anyway, so it's a bad idea imho Rolling Eyes

Just tell me what you think.

Sure Iguleder, here I attach the two files I edited just replace them over the existing ones in ./plugins/gtkui

While I'm here I'll share new desktop screenie with image creatd using pixlr Razz Note that it doesn't sae always to your pc though, I had to publish this one to imm.io then save to computer Sad

So mtpaint now does svg graphic editing too, or it just opens them?

Thanks for the sources, nice desky Smile

I have no idea, actually, I just integrated that PET. By the way, the new mhwaveedit is out, bad menu entry.

I'll upload mhwaveedit, mtpaint and deadbeef, I'll try to hack all three to for 006, my current focus is getting xorg and cups fully fixed Smile

There is also a possibility that InkscapeLite can be replaced with pixlr, but I don't think it's a good idea.

Great job on this.
I installed frugally on a Dell Inspiron 1501 with the only problems being some missing libs between the keyboard and headrest.

Seamonkey, my favorite browser, is as fast as ever.

The default theme is pleasing and I'll probally stick with that.

Photography and media playback are the other two important uses for me so for the next couple of days I'll be playing with whats included along those lines. Was sorry to see gtkam go as it is able to transfer raw files. I'll be looking at Rawstudio and GIMP for this as well.

I look forward to 005!
