I've used Fluppy -- it's great stuff. I thought that was a different WM/DE/UI/whatever that had navigation by the tabs on the side. I guess I was just confused Sad

What? I like the xPUD-style layout... (xPUD[dot]org Wink )

@starhawk, try Menu>System>Control Panel>Desktop>Change Desktop Environment>Netbook Launcher;
to get what jemimah was illustrating in screen2. I'm not sure whether it makes much additional difference changing the Windows Manager (Flwm, Icewm and OpenBox included as standard) - but certainly plenty of options are there to play with. Absolutely fangs on my '99 vintage Portege 3480ct with 196Mb RAM, but a new 7200rpm 160GB HD certainly helps.

I'll take a look in a little bit.

BTW, I wish you were in the States -- I've been looking for a Portege of that model or similar, and I can't find one here. Unfortunately, shipping from Australia is likely to be a little outside my price range (I also suspect that you wouldn't want to part with it, either!).

Very Happy you don't know how many people have seen it working with Puppy and made me an offer for it, on the spot!

No, I'm afraid it's now something of a family heirloom, as it was my stepmums business machine and went around the world twice with her, back in the day. Ironically for you- it was custom-built in Canada! Semi-ruggardised, magnesium alloy case etc etc it literally cost only AU$15 for the cards to enable wifi and USB2+firewire. (A little cumbersome, but portable steampunk is the new black, apparently.) It also has proved useful as an emergency entertainment system for the kids. Jemimah's careful selection of non-violent, puzzle-type games in Fluppy is especially appreciated (by us parents)!

I really should get around to you-tubing it - gotta install Catdude's graphical boot to really show it off with bootup times etc. Broad mix of puplets to showcase Puppy Linux/Windows managers... At the moment, it runs MIJINpup511, ZenPup5 (an early dpup - I think it was cagwait's project), TEENpup2010mini, MacPup520, QuirkNOP-120, Simplicity10:10 (based on stu90's 5x D-lite), and of course, Fluppy 013. You can bet I'll be trying to shoe-horn Saluki into it!

EDIT: Breaks my heart http://www.ebay.com/itm/lot-5-mini-Toshiba-Portege-3480ct-3110ct-3440ct-3010ct-/160710080521?pt=Laptops_Nov05&hash=item256b113809; http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Portege-3480ct-item259-/110692358777?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19c5c75a79
If I was to replace it though, I'd probably go with a used Toughbook or an Opentec 'Openfire' or industrial-grade RPC (Australian manufacturer). The latter is now an obsession for me since I squeeked out of winning an auction for 2 together for less than $160 Evil or Very Mad

I stumbled across a way to get fluppy 013 to run on my
IBM thinkcenter M52 computer which has an intel graphics chip.

I previously reported that Fluppy 012 will work on this model but
Fluppy 013 won't.

By accident I booted up the computer with a CD with
Fluppy 013 burnt on it. To my amazement it worked!!

The reason is simple. I had previously installed Fluppy 012
on the computer so a pupsave file was available for Fluppy 013
to find. This pupsave file has the 'intel' driver inside it.
It took a couple of minutes to load the pupsave file
because it has installed applications in it,
but it was successful and that's what counts. Laughing

Fluppy 013 suits my needs very well. Here's one application I've discovered that make it even better:

LibreOffice 3.5.1
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-lucid/LibreOffice-3.5.1-en_us-2.sfs

Any other discoveries?

As the main page no longer exists, I uploaded several files from Fluppy 013 and additional pets I used in the last 2 years.

So for those who still use this excellent small distro there now is a small repository again.

Cheers, Mark

yes, and I can host those too, if someone just has downloaded files without remembering where he got them or when the download-page is down meanwhile.

In that case send me a personal message, please.

note to MU:

I keep Baconrecorder and Puppy clock and Puppy backup
compatible to Fluppy

Available
Baconrecorder

Puppy clock

Puppy backup

It is also possible to upgrade gtkdialog3 to gtkdialog4
and this allows more scripts to be run.

gtkdialog4

Thank you, Jemimah,

I found a small problem with Parole. While playing videos the screen goes dark in a few minutes and you have to move the mouse or to hit keyboard button to make it appear again. Parole has checked box Disable screen saver but it does not help.

Here is a quick solution for this. Just before playing videos with parole type in console:
Code:
xset s off -dpms


Cheers, Toni

What a truly outstanding work of art Fluppy is.
A masterpiece in every sense.
Innovation - well beyond expectation and a
PowerHouse of system rescue tools - all included.

Absolutely amazing - Puppy at it’s finest.

Additionally - we have Saluki and Carolina - both superb.

Would like to express admiration and sincere appreciation to
BK, Jemimah, elroy, Smokey01, MU and others - who so willingly give us so much - in return for so little.

Thank you all - very best regards - Ray
