You have build solid Pups. And the look has been really good in them. Yes, I have used your great themes when I have updated themes. Thank you of them, they have looked really great.

And never say never again. Take a break and when things give you more time, contribute or give feedback more actively again.

Thank you of what you have done so far.

Pemasu, Smile
I can't say that the icewm themes are truly mine; they were a mix-mash of other themes which I hacked together. I do intend to improve my theme-making skills in icewm so that I can have some which I can truly call my own.

PostPosted: Sun 17 Jul 2011, 21:10    Post subject: Firefox-6.0 SFS  

I have made a 16MB SFS of Firefox-6.0. I have tested it in both Slickpup and Solidpup, so it should also be compatable with Lucid and Wary.
The download link is on the first post of this thread.

How do you mount iso and sfs files with Solidpup? (I know how to do it with commandline). In the normal Puppy double clicking on the file in Rox will mount it. Also, I'm not sure but I thought Thunar normally allowed the same thing.

Hoven,

To mount a SFS file, right-click on it, and choose SFS-Exec or SFS-Load.
SFS-Load is more reliable, while SFS-Exec is faster when it works.

To be honest, I do not know to mount an ISO file. I still consider myself to be a linux newbie.
May I ask for what reason one would wish to mount an ISO? If you wish to see the contents of the ISO or extract it, what I do is right-click on the ISO, choose "Open With" and choose ISOMaster.

Update: Oh yes, I realize now that mounting an iso allows you to see it's contents. I previously, used ISOMaster for this purpose, but left-clicking on the ISO is much easier.
The Final versions of SolidPup have this left-click option for both ISO and SFS files.

I have packaged Firefox 7.0 and Seamonkey 2.3.3 generic builds into SFS format. They both work in Solidpup and Slickpup, so they should be fine in Wary and Lucid Puppy as well. They can be downloaded here: http://www.smokey01.com/Tman/apps/

Thanks singlshot,

I did the best I could with my current level of experience. I am still a rookie developer and there's a lot of things I still need to improve upon but I am glad that you like it. If any current user has fixed any bugs experienced in this puplet; providing the solution or pointing the way would be greatly appreciated. I actually use SlickPup as my main puplet, but I won't forget this one completely. I do plan to make newer versions; but for now I am slowing down the release time between versions. I am thinking every 4-6 months per release as a time frame.

This was posted way back in July, but I think I have found the answer:

PostPosted: Sun 13 Nov 2011, 00:28    Post subject: Solidpup 5.1.1 final  

I've decided to get back on the saddle and work on another puplet..well not a brand new one.
I felt that I had left SolidPup sort-of unfinished, so I decided to work on it some more.
This will probably be the final release for version 5.1.1. It should be ready in a couple weeks. There will be a lot of changes.

The final version is not yet complete, but I decided to upload a beta version for users to try.
There have been many changes to the previous release, including updated apps, themes and under-the-hood stuff.

The default window-manager is Icewm with Openbox + Fbpanel as an alternative.
I still want to add some more things..a few wifi drivers, some more updates, and I want to replace fbpanel with tint2.
Abiword and Gnumeric are out, but I've added Get-GnomeOffice, which installs them easily.
Also, Get-Internet Apps allows you to install the latest, Flashplayer, Firefox, Opera, and/or Seamonkey.

enjoy! Wink

If anyone by chance downloaded the nvidia driver from the link on the first page, which I changed yesterday...my apologies, it linked to the wrong driver. I have posted a new link now, and confirm that it works for my Nvidia GT 240.

I just updated Flashplayer to version 11.1.102.55.
If you're in the new SolidPup, just go to Get Internet Apps in the menu and select flashplayer.

It will download and install over the old flashplayer automatically.

To see your current installed version, go here.

Hi Tman

Using SolidPup now - luv it - really smooth and very nicely put together.

Still getting familiar with everything - but so far, all looks good.

In fact - 1st impressions - absolutely fantastic.

Booting via grub4dos.

Many thanks for this and very best regards - Ray
