PostPosted: Mon 16 May 2011, 22:21    Post subject:  Puppy Lupen- K 2.6.38.4.....Compiz-Fusion/Emerald/Cairo-dock
Subject description: Compiz-Fusion / Emerald / Xfce4 Puppy
 

Very Happy Hello,
@EDIT: Updated, now using Compiz...5/30/11
@Video Here
@And Here

Built from Woof, using kernel 2.6.38.4..
Designed for / built on a Compaq CQ-56 laptop..
Should work OOTB for Intel graphics...
NVIDIA / ATI users will need to install glx drivers for Compiz to work....
Recommended for higher end machines w/>512mb ram or swap.

Get it here.. Username puppy Password linux
http://puppylinuxstuff.meownplanet.net/puppyluvr/Lupen-0.1.iso
md5sum cb997b5377257b812b460eae82a2d708 Lupen-0.1.iso
274mb...
Built from Woof, and MultiPup!!
Defaults to Compiz if GLX is present...
If it defaults to Openbox, install the high performance driver for your video card, and restart x. with "startx xfce4"
This is basically a clone of my desktop, built with parts of Woof, EZWoof-525, and MultiPup
Includes:
Compiz-Fusion
Emerald theme manager
Firefox 4.0.1
Cairo-dock / GLX-dock
xcompmgr
Gimp 2.6.10
Xvidcap
X-Toys
MultiPup
Pwidgets
PupXscreensaver 5.13
XorgHigh Intel drivers
Fixed dpkg utilities.. unpack .debs etc...

Some themes/settings by me... Cool

Issues:
Embarassed First... Turn off the pinboard... in a terminal enter
Quote:
rox -p=
Then D/L and unpack the roxfix tarball attached to /root/Startup..

Leftover "Nightly" icon on dock next to Firefox...remove it.. drag `n drop onto the desktop..poof!!

This kernel has USB boot problems, works fine for me but reports of problems have arisen with 2.6.38.4...new build should correct that..

On first boot, xorg halts at "ignore / command line" ...
If you are using Intel graphics, click ignore, otherwise click command line and type "xorgwizard"...
(Weather and wireless are my configurations, reset to your own....)
Probably unstable.. Wink
At your own risk etc... Very Happy
If anyone tries it, let me know....
Jay....

I did a frugal install by mounting your Lupu-539-beta3.iso
and copying the files to a pup539 directory,then taking the files in
the Lupu-539-beta3 folder within the pup539 directory to a puppy539
folder that I made and then running grub4dos.
Didn't want to burn a disk.
Anyhow it worked Smile

Very Happy Hello,
Love the BG.. Very Happy
To get rid of the black box around cairo-dock, right click the dock,
Cairo-Dock / configure/ system / composition / use fake transparency...
And under visibility, you can tell it to hide / stay below etc....
In Openbox it stays below fine, in Jwm with compositing, it tends to stay on top...
But Jwm does composite great...in xinit.rc is the xcompmgr line, around 128, that sets transparency....

Are you on wireless???
Did the ATI graphics work OOTB??, or did you have to install a driver...????
I see it recognized both cores..
Did it bark on first boot up???

Yea, I`m more questions than answers... Laughing

Jay...

Puppyluvr. I have made lupe22 kernel. I will upload it later today. It has some important fixes, most important is aufs-allow-sfs-as-branch patch. Also the usb section has been remodified.
It is optimized for core 2 and up, so it is for newer hw especially.

I was on the wired network originally but after seeing your post I unplugged that and plugged in a linksys usb adaptor and after playing around with that for a few minutes I'm connected using the wireless network.
The ati graphics worked ootb.
There is a problem with sound, retrovol isn't working but alsamixer is so I do have sound.
I turned off cairo dock, I'll try your solution in the morning, 1:55 am here now.

Very Happy Hello,
The USB modem could be my fault.. Embarassed
In the Bootmanager, under system services, enable SLmodemusb...
Also, I disabled CUPS and firewall, you may want to enable them....
Compiled the latest Compat Wireless drivers for 2.6.38.4..
At my link below as a pet....

A very confusing name.
Latest lupu/lucid was 5.2.5
The 539 would indicate a frog leep.

What if work in the same line will be done in the future and 5.25 steadily goes to 539?

I think this kind of naming should be avoided.

Very Happy Hello,
Yes, I agree...Since the next Puppy might be 5.3, it was supposed to be named 5.29...At first it was...
But a typo during Woof....and well.... Rolling Eyes
No matter, as on the next built, it will get a name, and I will renumber it then...

Lupen is what I have in mind...
Lu-p-en...Lucid + Puppy + Enlightenment..
I have compiled the latest E-16 and am testing integrating it into this Pup, along with GLX-dock and xcompmgr...
It isnt stable yet, but when they all work together, its a beauty!!!

The first release was to test 2.6.38.4 and xcompmgr, this one for Cairo-dock, next release will include E-16...Then maybe I`ll be satisfied... Rolling Eyes Wink Wink

Hi there! Smile

wow that one does look and work a bit different. What is that Cairo thing you talk about? Anyway it did work on my Acer D250 and looks cool kind of.

That everything explodes and goes up in smoke is kind of imprssive and then get a bit childish but who am I to complain me being the most naive we have here at the forum. Smile

So apart from being your brain child what is it about it that you like best.

Is there anything particular you want me to test. Everything did work as far as I know. Firefox instead of SeaMonkey is a big improvement indeed.

I don't remember now some hours has gone since I tested it. Was Flash built in from scratch.

Hahah the name Lupen 539 surpriced me too. Btu I see you have changed the title now to Puppy Lupen and telling which kernel it is.

Edit oh I forgot to tell you that this is the first time me had the famous muted audio but Retrovol repaired it. If it is important I can test it again tomorrow.
