PostPosted: Sun 13 Jan 2013, 07:56    Post subject: desktop icons disappered; my-applications folder as symlink
Subject description: requests for help
 

Can someone more experience with saluki 023 frugal install) please tell me how to fix/do these two things.

Desktop Icons Disappered
I right-clicked the desktop and selected "Create New Launcher", entered "Thunar" as the command field, "/initrd/mnt/dev_save/Documents and Settings/user/Desktop" as the starting directory, "Windows My Documents" as the name field and hit OK. All desktop icons immediately disappeared and they didn't come back even after a reboot. Moreover, right-clicking the desktop doesn't display the menu anymore. What did I do wrong and how can I get desktop icons and right-click menu back?

update: I tried the same procedure right after booting from CD and got the same empty-desktop, no-right-click-menu issue.

my-applications folder as a symlink [SOLVED]
I want to create a symlink named /root/my-applications with target /dev/sda1/puppy/my-applications. In other words, the symlink would replace the default my-applications folder and point to another folder. This is something that I was able to easily do with precise puppy and other puppies, but not with saluki. When I try renaming the default /root/my-applications directory to /root/my-applications-foo with Thunar I get error "invalid crosslinked file". I don't understand it. How can I rename that folder so I can then use the same name for a symlink to /dev/sda1/puppy/my-applications?

update: I was able to work around this issue by renaming folders and creating links from the terminal. Apparently Thunar is involved in triggering this error condition, but the terminal isn't.

TIA

This is a common problem. You are out of space so your
PuppyPin file is damaged. Fortunately it's easy to fix.
Restart X windows will create a new one, however if you don't
have enough space it won't be successful.

So the proper solution is to go to the start menu (see under 'Utilities)
and there is an app that does 'Resize PupSave file' or something like that.
Add more space and reboot.

Think of your PupSave file as being like a special partition to save your
personal data and settings.

Also pfix=fsck is important when booting to clean the PupSave file
of errors.

PostPosted: Thu 17 Jan 2013, 02:36    Post subject: Libgnomevfs-2.so.0 and liborbit-2.so.0  

Hi.

I am for the time being using last version of Saluki because thats the best one that works on this Asus 1000HE laptop.

After being bothered a long time with firefox constantly freezing and problems updating flashplayer on the previous Saluki savefile I made a new savefile today.

Then I installed firefox 13.0.1 after installing the flashplayer that is last version for linux.

However, the check for dependencies said I had several missing libraries. After looking around for all of them I managed to fix most of them.

But these two, libgnomevfs-2.so.0 and liborbit-2.so.0 I cant figure out.

Its not on the Saluki because file search doesnt find it anywhere.

I have searched both in google and in this forum for these two files. All I could find was some comment about Saluki not being updated hence missing files from for example gnomevfs, a pet file that was called orbit something, and alot of rpm on this site:
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/3/limit/3/srodzaj/1/dl/40/search/libgnomevfs-2.so.0/field%5B%5D/1/field%5B%5D/2 plus several other links that was similar as this site.

So I am stuck. Dont know how to find them, and I cant imagine that one has to install several programs just to get ahold of two missing libraries?

Havent been here for over two years because I've figured out problems by myself, but this time...

So I have two questions:

Is it necessary with these two missing libraries?

Is it really not possible to just find these two and just put them in the firefox folder that is asking for them?

Thanks for any help on this....

Kattami if you downloaded Firefox from the saluki repository it should not be missing any libraries. Is this where you acquired Firefox?

I downloaded from the puppylinux-common repository.

As for the saluki repository it was the firefox 12 version which gave me so much problems.

And when I tried the firefox 15.0.1 I got that message in red text in the textbox that said something about several files would be overwritten and you have to be sure you update etc.

So I could have asked if the firefox 15.0.1 has any problems or not..

I didnt think of it because I didnt get why that message came up when I didnt have any firefox yet on the new savefile...

I often boot to RAM and install package to test them then don't save the savefile when rebooting or shutting down.

In Fatdog there is a sandbox especially for this purpose so you can test packages before you install them for good.

It's always best to use the packages for the distro you are using. Quite often many others will work but sometimes they are missing dependencies.

Thank you very much.

I will boot to RAM and test the 15.0.1 version to see if it works well.

kattami,
Here is another approach you could consider, if you have a frugal install. I have had good luck downloading firefox-#-tar.bz2 directly from mozilla, saving into the home directory (/initrd/mnt/dev_save), then extracting it there. There's a firefox executable in the resulting folder which has always run for me.

edit: I just saw the post by yr1945 on page 247
Quote:
info only... i run firefox without installing it by downloading the firefox-17..0.1.tar.bz2 from mozilla.com... i extract the firefox folder with xarchiver... i open the extracted firefox folder and right-click on the firefox icon which is about 1/3 the way down the page (the icon is a diamond shape)... after the right-click i select “send to” and then “desktop (create link)”... then i just click on the desktop symlink and firefox runs flawlessly... i should add that you do not necessarily need to create a desktop link... you can just left click on the firefox icon in the extracted firefox folder and the firefox browser will run...

hello

I do not know how to search through the 242 pages in this thread so I gonna aks here though I am sure it has been dealed with before Sad


Ok, I got Saluki 23 on USB flashdrive frugal and frugal hdd.
Both have the same issue in common. I can not see any desktop icons and I can not change the wallpaper. This is not so fine.

I have a Samsung R65 laptop with 1400x1000 Nvidia I think . If that is of any interest.

Can you help me since I only want a nice looking puppy that is easy to be administered for a Windows newbe.


Thanks alot


Is there a way to fix this without a reinstall? I've got 23 running on a flash drive, ran great, then I suddenly lost all desktop icons and wallpaper..I have menu and terminal but not the others..even restartwm didn't get em back..ideas?

**Edit: I cheated: I had a previous copy of the save file so I replaced it and it works fine now. Wink

I don't think it's maintained any more. Carolina is a Saluki fork, also Saluki NOP is available.

What an absolutely stunning OS this is - runs on almost anything from a 10yr old ram challenged Acer laptop - to a 2yr old i3 E732 laptop - and on the E732 it flies.

Using it with Opera 12.15 at the moment and it is insanely fast. Xfce desktop too - excellent combination.

Outstanding puppy - Many thanks Jemimah (hope all is well) - best regards - Ray
