Very nice Jejy, even better than Checkmate!

The only probs I've found is I have to manually set up network and there is a duplicate of 'Network' in 'Setup' menu. Things I can sort out no prob.

I will test more on the weekend but all in all a great job!

Thanks for your hard work!

You're doing excellent work, Jejy.

The Lxpanel desktop looks very nice, and the wmchooser is a nice touch. Are you sure you are only 18? That's amazing. At 18, all I was doing was playing Super Nintendo...lol.

Yes I am Laughing , I had my period Gameboy color like everyone else, but I prefer the IT rather than video games now. The really good games are gone ...

Hi Jejy69

I thought Precise-Mate was great - but I am having a couple of problems with the Mate 1.4 version of Slacko Lxpup.

The first is the networking - this worked great in Precise-Mate but in Slacko-lxpup-mate1.4 there seems to be far fewer options in the Connect to Server menu (e.g. ftp is missing) and I've failed so far to establish a Windows Share samba connection - just doesn't do anything, not even an error message.

The 2nd problem is that Chromium still crashes - in a strange way this time but reproducible - basically whenever I try to attach a 2nd file to a forum post. Both Chromium v18 and v19 show the same behaviour.

Sorry these are just error reports - I like to provide some clues as to what might be the cause but in both these cases I haven't worked out how to give you more info.

Cheers
peebee

Hi Jejy69

Your latest LXDE Puppy with SeaMonkey 2.12 and with links to your LXDE-Pup website is absolutely brilliant.

The overall presentation is truly outstanding and the fact that it works so well on my ram challenged 10yr old Acer laptop, is astonishing.

You are to be wholeheartedly congratulated on your work here - the combination of an excellent puppy, linked to an incredibly well designed website, that gives direct links to JM’s Puppy forum, is simply superb.

Truly stunning - many thanks and very best regards - Ray.

Have been playing with LXpup today and so far so good except Firefox keeps crashing. It's strange because it was working fine for a few hours.

Oh, and you can't make a new shortcut on the desktop because lxshortcut is missing. I found an lxshortcut.pet so no big deal.

Other than that It seems pretty good, I'll test some more tomorrow.

I did a frugal install on NTFS both of them.
They are a bit different. LXPrecise have SeaMonkey
while LXSlacko has Firefox. Seamonkey has Flash built in
while Firefox one have to use the flash installer which is easy to do.

But to my surprise the LXSlacko version seems to have
some built in update or something. Suddenly the savefile
went too small. I had only installed Flash and nothing else.

So does that mean that the flash is bigger than 200MB?

How else to explain it? Read warning can not download
not enough memory. Delete files or increase storage.

I hope somebody can explain what is most likely explanation.
I had only assigned a 256MB savefile but Flash is at most 50MB
so what what was all the other big download about?

Hi nooby!
You said LXSlacko has got Firefox, which hasn't got an easy option to handle all the caché. I think that can have to do with the space taken in your savefile. Try setting Firefox to clear the cache on exit.

I started all over without any savefile
and now I have two new frugal installs
and they do work but I feel totally spoiled.

As a child with too many new toys looking very similar

I have gotten used to Lupu528-005 so
to have two additional Puppy OS to boot into
seems overkill unless them are different enough
to do things better than what Lupu528-005 does?

What is it about LX that you love that makes it
worthy of replacing old faithful Lupu528-005 ?

Does the newer kernel an LX do things more safely
or faster or look more cool or what? Easier to set up
to your own taste or what is that different that I should change?

Sorry if I am too spoiled to get it. What is in it for you and me then Smile

Okay, okay enough of this speech style, I quite understand, what I do is useless for many, that's for sure, after all, you've already said (yes, already, you remember anything?). I did not come here to challenge your supremacy or to competition, I just offers a small bonus for Puppy, you are not obliged to try, to watch it.
I understand that you want to do like dogs, you pee on your territory, it's your, it's okay. Do not come by denigrating the work of others ESPECIALLY when you have already served. I 'am tired.

If you're really spoiled, do at least an effort to respect others. I respect your opinion and you, so I will not say anything more.
It is a pity that we should shoot themselves in the feet, anyway ...
I'm not saying that what I've done is great, but when writing :

We will have to justify and say "Yeah that's better because gnagnah"
We haven't got the same PC.


It's your life man.





I come in peace.

So sorry my poor English misled you to take it this way.

As I remember a lot of the posters told you they love it.

Remember I am more like the village fool in this forum.
Read my signature. Trust the others and ignore my text okay!

I think you should be happy over the encouraging responses
and realize that my confusing text where just one voice among many.

So trust the others and ignore me please. They want you to share
your take on it here so that is what you should be happy about.

Don't let an old grumpy guy from the backwaters of Europe
take you down at all. I am not good at expressing myself I do apology!
