In Saluki 23 I have the problem of not being able to eject a flash drive. A while back, you posted a solution on the Saluki-linux forum. I'd like to apply the fix to another computer, but I can't find it now. Would you mind reposting it here? Thanks.

Since I've been writing about this problem for quite a while, I finally tested this.

It works, but it's a little awkward. Works fine from the Pmount, but doesn't always unmount using the file manager. Still cool that it doesn't go crazy like before.

mini-jaguar,
You could try the latest version http://smokey01.com/carolina/pet_packages-carolina/pup-volume-monitor-0.1.10.pet , I've had no problems with mounting or unmounting usb drives, all appears to work fine from the file manager, the only time I've had a problem with unmounting is that I had neglected to close a file that's in use.

Note to Geoffrey....


The proper method to make gtkdialog package --->

Barry Kauler wants gtkdialog to be a link back to gtkdialog4
(see image)




This allows the programmer to start his script with the following...


Code:

# find version of gtkdialog
for P in gtkdialog4 gtkdialog3 gtkdialog; do
           GTKDIALOG=$(which $P) && break
done

In saluki there is gtkdialog3 and gtkdialog4, gtkdialog is a symlink to gtkdialog4, that's the way it has alway's been, it's the same with Carolina,

I just tried installing your gtkdialog-exprimo-0.8.2.pet, this overwrites and removes the symlink leaving the older gtkdialog4 and adding your version as gtkdialog, so now either of two different versions of gtkdialog4 are called depending on how the script is written, my single file update replaces the existing gtkdialog4 leaving the symlink intact. I really don't see what difference it makes whether the symlink is to one or the other, the outcome is the same.

I don't know why it didn't unmount, it may have been a touchpad problem or probably it did unmount and I didn't notice.

In any case, the system originally flashed messages that it's o.k. to remove the drive, or else it flashed menacing warnings. With the fix it just blanks the window of any icons, which means it's unmounted, not as obvious.

The messages were disabled, this was part of the problem with the unmounting of usb drives.

akash_rawal,

I've compiled and replaced the pup-volume-monitor in Saluki/Carolina with pup-volume-monitor-0.1.8, looks a lot tidier now without all the loops icons, though now if I unmount any drive, I don't get the safe to remove message, this is handy to have, though it does really only need to show this message on removal of such devices as CD and USB.

If this could be re-enabled just for removable devices it would be appreciated, keep up the good work.

thanks for all your effort.

The safe to remove message in saluki is provided by tmount script written by jemimah. jemimah has configured the volume monitor to use tmount instead of usual mount and umount commands.

There is a config file at /etc/xdg/pup-volume-monitor/main.conf. To restore the original behavior simply restore the original main.conf from saluki 23. But it will also restore unmounting bug for removable drives at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=650409#650409 (and I too have the same problem.)

Thunar also has notification support. You enable it by configuring with option --enable-notifications to the configure script. Maybe try that too.

PostPosted: Thu 22 Nov 2012, 17:58    Post subject: Rox file manager  

I got the rox-filer pet from the Saluki repository. It shows up in the menu and works fine. I would like to make it the default file manager, but if I do this via the control panel/XFCE preferred applications/utilities, then the desktop drive/partition icons don't work anymore. "File doesn't exist or I can't access it." Is there a reasonably easy way to fix this? Thanks.

Edit: similar question has been asked but not answered on xfce forum:

Wognath,

exo-open determines the default apps, you might be able to do something with it, running exo-open in the terminal shows the options.
Code:
# exo-open
Usage: exo-open [URLs...]
       exo-open --launch TYPE [PARAMETERs...]

  -?, --help                          Print this help message and exit
  -V, --version                       Print version information and exit

  --launch TYPE [PARAMETERs...]       Launch the preferred application of
                                      TYPE with the optional PARAMETERs, where
                                      TYPE is one of the following values.

  --working-directory DIRECTORY       Default working directory for applications
                                      when using the --launch option.

The following TYPEs are supported for the --launch command:

  WebBrowser       - The preferred Web Browser.
  MailReader       - The preferred Mail Reader.
  FileManager      - The preferred File Manager.
  TerminalEmulator - The preferred Terminal Emulator.

If you don't specify the --launch option, exo-open will open all specified
URLs with their preferred URL handlers. Else, if you specify the --launch
option, you can select which preferred application you want to run, and
pass additional parameters to the application (i.e. for TerminalEmulator
you can pass the command line that should be run in the terminal).

I tried that Super Tux Kart .sfs in the Saluki repository (not the latest version of this, but the only one for Saluki), works, but it's extremely slow.

Is there any way to accelerate this or is my computer too slow?

I have the latest version of this on my Windows partition and it's much faster, although it also slows down, but only a little (the Saluki version is super slow) and sometimes crashes.

PostPosted: Sat 01 Dec 2012, 02:40    Post subject: Minimum install or default packages database?  

Loving the Saluki install, what a joy! I am guessing there is a very minimal Saluki out there for download, I would love to try it if anyone knows a link. Is there a database or spreadsheet that lists all the packages that are in Saluki 23 ? then I would have a guide to uninstalling down to minimum... thanks so much!

I don't think there is a Saluki minimal. You can make one by using the custom builder or dl the Saluki remaster pet rom the repo.

Control panel > software > remove built in packages, shows whats built in or open thunar > view >show hidden files, then go to /root/.packages

There's a built in files folder with all the files from "remove built in packages", an adrive-installed-packages list and a user-installed-packages list.
