@scott .. I'll be porting jwm tools to fvwm1 and/or e16. Any preferences on which to do first... I have e16 @ the same resource usage as jwm, I like the effects and have the desktop icons hacked in but I am missing the tray... Fvwm1 is missing a couple of others, but they are far more capable than any other permissively licensed (bsd,mit,...) wm.

I vote for e16, I quite like it... Not all that much, but I can see it's a good bit of software... aside from the annoying literal categories in the main menu... (which i presume your tools will fix)... I never used fvwm1 ...

Chrome 9 thinks my yahoo login is an attack and won't let me in. FF 7 updated to 12 and QTWeb will but definitely not my favorite browsers. Iron 19 installed but won't open.

I'll be trying to make FF13 and Opera12 pkgs soon...

Quote:
I greatly prefer Iron to Chrome/Chromium, can anyone recommend a suitable pet that will work with Akita?

If anyone can make one, I'll add it to the repo and Browser-Installer Smile

Opera 12 for akita, http://akita.scottjarvis.com/opera-12.00-i386-akita.pet (17mb)

It's very fast, works lovely, added a few changes:

- changed the fonts (Still not perfect)
- added puppy related bookmarks
- updated speed dial buttons
- added extensions: youtube downloader, youtube add-free, ad block, ghostery

e16's menus get generated at each start from a rather slow _perl_ script ...the menus are in a really flat format that is much easier than jwm ... As is fvwm1, but I may need to backport some stuff from fvwm-2.2 (the last non-gpl version) in order to get functionality comparable to jwm ... enlightenment 16 just needs a way to swallow other widgets like a button(s) the pager, systray and iconbar, maybe it already can and I just haven't figured it out yet - the theming methods are poorly documented.

Hi! Nice work, this puplet has a special feel. I'm having only one problem -- for some reason, after making a pupsave and rebooting, the computer won't launch the live CD. I have to remove my USB key and force a reboot for the computer to detect the live CD and launch it instead of loading Wndows. This doesn't happen to me using Puppies other than Akita CD and LupQ/WaryQ CD.

Hi vicmz, thanks.. Shame about this problem you are having, but I know who can help - shinobar - because the only thing those Puppies (Akita/LupQ/WaryQ) have in common, is shinobars tools - Firstrun, PupSaveConfig, Frugal Installer, others. I bet shinobar can find the problem if you report exactly what is happening.

There must be more than just shinobar's tools implied. I use shinobar's pupsaveconfig for slacko and the pupsave does get detected at bootup. The only puplet I have used with pupsave successfully so far is Saluki and it has pupsaveconfig. For the other puplets, even after I make a pupsave, when I reboot the screen remains black, and I can't access the BIOS or type anything, I have to remove my USB key, unplug the pc, plug the pc again and start over. I simply can't explain further than this, I have little technical knowledge. Maybe if I make a full install to the USB key I get better results. Anyway, running the CD as RAM-only keeps being fun Very Happy

It's feast or famine lately, nothing for months, then twice in 2 weeks. Good to see things back in full swing. I have gotten a little sidetracked lately trying to make a bash script that turns the wordnet dictionary into compileable c.
