Don't get me wrong now. I am a total nobody so this is not
me making criticism of you it is Just me very curious.

I can understand if one have a Puppy with LXDE or xfce or E17 something.

But Gnome? Okay maybe if one are so used to it that all the others feel bad
using them?

Don't answer I only wanted to share my bewilderment soemthing.
congrats to the accomplishment though. Everybody should have a pet
project. Such are important.

@ Nooby

Why should I not respond? All opinions are welcome, as in any self-respecting community. Smile
As my mother would say, all criticism are constructive! Laughing

I think Puppy is a very flexible distribution, and the establishment of another desktop manager like Gnome could widen its scope.
I think we have this chance when compared to other OS made ​​in Silicon Valley, we can choose.
After the individual tastes make the difference.
In fact, I do not understand,
Code:
 "But Gnome"
, I do not know if it's a shame, or I risk a curse, but I like Gnome, and I accept. Razz

Cordially !




The choice, the beginning of freedom?

Merci, Jejy. Looks great, but I can't test it, malheureusement the download fails for me, too! Please consider providing alternative links.

Hello ! Very Happy

Other link is ready !
I add a mirror, with google doc, Mediafire does not accept files larger than 200mb. I hope vicmz can download the iso. Smile

@ sneekylinux : Thank you for the video, I'm impressed, this iso has been more successful than I had expected. Can you tell me what software did you use? The quality is really excellent.

I am 18 years old, and for a first project, I think it's a success for me! Very Happy

@ James C, thanks to try the last ISO, what do you think about QtWeb ? Smile

Jejy69,

Thanks for version 2 with the fixes. Clock and USB drive mounting work well now. Smile Clicking on date and time in taskbar shows text in Chinese!

On my hardware the system font used in Gnome is too small but I cannot find anyway of changing the font style or size. Maybe I have missed a setting somewhere?

Changing the theme from the default Mint-X solved the problem.

Terryphi,

For next time, you can go to the manager of appearance, and on the right, you have a tab "Fonts", where you will be easy to change fonts. Smile

He was in there fast that sneekylinux Cool

One of our smartest pups once said that Gnome could not work on Puppy.
At the time this was true. A little while later it became someones challenge and now we have this new Gnomification.

So the reason to Gnomify is because we can and many appreciate the speed advantage that Puppy + Gnome offers.

You are right Jejy69 as a first project this is going in all the right directions. Cool

Prefer Xfce, then support Saluki . . . something in the puppyverse for everyone . . .
http://saluki-linux.com/

I tend to use the latest woof and can not be distracted by all this gorgeousness. Wink

Well done. Really looking forward to how this improves.
Maybe a touch of Glom database or early Ease . . .

Jejy69 thanks for that very friendly reply.
I would feel ashamed to not give your thing a decent test
now that you talked so well about why it exists so I try to
download and boot it frugally on my NTFS hd.

if I fail to give a report within a week do friendly remind me.

Ah so it is a Slacko 5.3 with Gnome. I guess I need to use
pfix=ram for it to not pick up my slacko save file? Okay I give it a try now
if it fail then I try to give report today later. I need to get food soon Smile

Gnome looks good to me. But being a Slacko puppy
it chose 1024 x 600 due to it sense the resolution of the
Acer D255 internal screen and I use an external screen
having 1024 x 768 so ... Smile

I am not used to this Qtweb-kit something. Seems to work though.
It gave a warning.
I try to attach screen shot but I need to make it less big first.

@ Lobster :

Yes, sneekylinux is fast ! Very Happy "15 I like", Yeah Laughing
Thanks for the support. Wink

Next goal, Gnome's Ease ?

@ Nooby : You're welcome Smile
Do not feel compelled to try this ISO.

For the error message is quite normal, simply click "Yes to all".
This is when moving from a secure page, in which one is not.

PostPosted: Wed 18 Jul 2012, 09:36    Post subject: Frisbee key entry problem  

Hi Jerome

Excellent job!!

Just one problem so far - when I enter my wifi key into Frisbee it is not read correctly - not a biggie because SNS does set up my wifi correctly - but I'm a Frisbee fan and it works OK on Slacko.

Is QTWeb the same as Midori?? It has the same icon.....

Cheers & congrats
PeeBee

Hello Peebee ! Very Happy

No, For the icon, it was me who made ​​a mistake, I accidentally forgot to change the program icon Embarassed . You can change it with right click and properties.

Ouch, I also like Frisbee, following its installation, I encountered the same trouble, despite several attempts, none of my testing has not worked ... Confused
At the beginning, I thought the Dhcp was the source of the problem.
