Hi TLM,

Success at last! GetFlash didn't work at all for me (and nothing was showing up in the Add Ons menu), but what did work was downloading Flash Lucid 10. 3 r181from the Puppy Package Manager, Firefoxt plays You Tube videos just fine now (and the Flash plugin now shows up in the Add Ons menu too).

All's well that ends well! Thanks for your help anyway,

Cheers,

CP .


Good. Very Happy Still curious about what caused this. I will test on as many machines as i can access to see if i can replicate your situation.

Fat32 pendrive install made with http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

personal save file is now 1 gig on sdb pendrive where Diamond is installed.
Backup I put in My Documents in internal 30gig zif drive running Windows XP. Backup is 512MB save file.

Wireless was a breeze with Barrys simple network manager. Funny thing is. I tried Slack0 first. Wth rt73 module in Slack0. Barry network manager and Dougal failed for some reason regarding wpa2 which I use on home router.
No problems with that in Diamond.

Tint 2 taskbar hides my drive icons (cuts them off 1/2 way, no biggy though for me). Trying to figure out though how to find size of personal save file before getting the orange window warning.

Just installed today while barbecuing steaks for holiday. Using xorg-high pet also for intel 945 chip.


Code:
sh-4.1# glxgears
2305 frames in 5.0 seconds
2238 frames in 5.0 seconds
2211 frames in 5.0 seconds
2181 frames in 5.0 seconds
2230 frames in 5.0 seconds


All in all. Diamond works pretty durn well on this M&A Companion Netbook.
Might be some cheap ones left if you live in the USA. It is a toughbook that is kid proof with a water resistant keyboard. I own eeepcs also.
Google 'M&A Companion 8.9" ebay '
There should still be a few refurbished $149.00 ones available.

Thanks TLM for one fine distro from a Biker in TX.

Edit: forgot to mention. Flash 11 and java 1.7 working out of the box (enabled java in addons). Full screen flash also works good.

Hi rokytnji,
Happy to hear that Diamond is working well for your setup. A couple possible solutions to the panels hiding your drive icons:

First, you might try manually moving the icons and then see if they stay put after reboot.

Second, you can lower the size of the panels a few pixels. You will need to do the lxpanel on the left and the tint2 on the right separately: To change the size of lxpanel, just right click on it anywhere and choose Panel Settings (4th item up) In the resulting Panel Preferences box, change the Height and Icon settings to about 36.

Now, for the tint2 panel, you will have to manually edit a text file. Open Thunar and enable hidden files (under View---Show Hidden Files) Now navigate to /root/.config/tint2/
Now open the tint2rc file with a text editor (just left click on it) and go down to line 41 and CAREFULLY backspace off the 40 and then type 36. Save the file and close. Restart the xserver for the tint2 size to take effect. If 36 pixels is too much or too little, you can repeat the above steps with a different value until you achieve the desired results.

First off. Thanks for the prompt reply.

I took the easy way out and just moved the drive icons and then locked them.
They survived a reboot.

Thanks also for the tint2 tip. I am sure other users of Diamond can benefit from it.

I run tint2 taskbar in fluxbox in AntiX also with a Conky. I tricked it out a bit to make it autohide and look and act like a faux gnome 3 panel.

That is on a IBM T23 Laptop that triple boots Windows 2K pro/Puppy 520/and Antix 8.5 on a 100 gig hard drive.

Cool! I really like the lightweight panels and window managers, even on strong hardware.

Hi,
Thank you for trying Diamond. There is no conkyrc. The very first version a few months ago used conky, but then i switched to Pwidgets.

I have launched a sister project of Diamond. Built like Diamond, but based on Slacko 5.33. Those who want a Slacko Version of Diamond can download PatriotOS
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=79294

Simply apply the wallpapers and themes from Diamond and you will have a Slacko based Diamond. I have no immediate plans to create a Slacko Diamond. My next efforts will focus on Lucid528.005 LucidPlus to take advantage of all the extra drivers included in that release.

A quick update; I've just downloaded and burnt Diamond (with LibreOffice) to CD, and I have to say this disk is a lot better
and more satisfactory than my previous one and has none of the faults that that one had. I think the old one may have been a "bad burn."

Just one thing though; how do I disable the "Initiating startup sequence " audio startup message, which I must admit I could do without especially when I use the distro during the "small hours"?

Thanks in advance,

CP .

To disable the startup sound, go to /etc/init.d and look for the file named startup-sound.qs. You can remove this file without it affecting anything else. Or, if you just wish to temporarily disable it, right click on it and go to Properties, then to the Permissions tab and untick the box that says "allow this file to run as a program.

I really need to release an updated version of Diamond, but cannot find the time lately. Currently running Firefox 18.01 in my full install. I need to roll that and a heap lot of other improvements into a new release. Hopefully I will find the time soon. Cheers.

Thanks, I'll try that when I'm next in Diamond (I'm posting from a different Pup at the moment)

You're welcome. I can't speak for others here but as long as I've got a reasonably up to date browser with Flash working, and can open my documents OK (older versions of Abiword struggle with OpenOffice documents, for example), then I'm happy, and I can do all that with Diamond right now. So, no hurry as far as I can see Smile.

Hi again. Just an update; I've now installed Diamond (the one with Libre Office etc.) to my hard drive and, if you don't want the startup message, the /etc/init.d one is the one to look for. Why it changed from what I said above I don't know.

It's a great Puplet anyway

Subject description: ouf 6 pages of translating ! only drive icons to make visible.
 

PuPpy Linux Diamond kernel 3.0.25 (2014). Try was a success, wireless and audio are perfect. It's now five o'clock, time to sleep Wink .
8 A.M JRE and L.O can be loaded on the fly when needed, said RSH. Sure RSH ! I am retreated from the Office and all day long databases, word, and Excel. If tex is not enough, Abiword shall do the job for the house husband that i am and for my housewife too.
No Need of JRE, Qt should have been a better choice.
All apps needing JRE are available Windows, so i shall make W7 work a little bit, from time to time.
"in these race cases when wifi does not work i have a mini usb wireless adapter i orderd from DX. Cheap Smile
http://www.dealextreme.com/p/ultra-mini-nano-usb-2-0-802-11n-150mbps-wifi-wlan-wireless-network-adapter-48166 " not my problem but this info could be useful a lot for many Puppy users.
Switching the kernel to 3.0.25 solves the atheros drivers problem.
Hidden Drive icons, i move menu to top left, icons are here. Nice distro.
