See Menu >> Desktop >> Settings >> Desksetup Templates for Desk Icons.


Doesn't seem to work here...exactly what file does it write to and what is the name of the script it installs??

Hmmm.. just tested working here. Did you click the "Custom" button to save your current layout? Files are in /usr/local/desksetup. Saves config in /root/.desksetup. It alters the rox-pinboard at /root/Choices/ROX-Filer.

I noticed I was never asked for a name for the custom file...so, my steedl trap logic tells me if it did not ask for a name, none was created.

So, help me with the ultimate Kludge....how would I do it manually? sve pinboard to some_other_name and after rebooting then copy some_other_name to pinboard and restart x ?

Thanks

ps, in the unspeakable IRC channel now

File is ~/.desktopsetup/custompin, this setup works very well! Icons are my modified Stardust theme, GTK theme is also Stardust, and in the JWMConfiguration Manager is the JWM theme set to Black-vg, and the choice Change Window Decorations is set to 'larger' (window buttons).
This is the best puppy I have had so far, so I had to update my signature! I have done the modifications mentioned in this thread, but limited myself to a 590 version of JWM, and installed firefox-18.0.1, the original had some strange behaviour. I run live CD/DVD only. I usually save files to a USB HD, and it annoys me that turning off the machine with the Power button afterwards - as I have done before, now activates the whole Power-off/savesession procedure.

PostPosted: Thu 31 Jan 2013, 07:14    Post subject: AMMOUNCE - pre beta test  

I'm right now building a test image with k3.0.60. This is mainly to test the BUG we have been fussing over Laughing . (Not that it's a laughing matter, but we don't get too bogged down here Smile )

Now, this will sort out if it's an AUFS issue or kernel.

It should be up in an hour or two so stay tuned. It DOES contain some, but not all bugfixes so far, a changelog will be supplied.

Cheers!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Slacko-5.4.0.1 (pre beta 5.4.1 or 5.5) is released as a test bed for the BUG!

Get it here <---http://www.smokey01.com/01micko/slacko/slacko-5.4.0.1/ (155 MB, no devx, use older 5.4 version, no kernel source, I don't want drivers, if you need them PM me)

This is a 4g Opera version (no PAE).

It has kernel 3.0.60 and many bugfixes but does contain new bugs (broadcom wireles firmware is one)

Changelog
Quote:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FINAL 20121202 SLACKO-540

bugfix xchat menu entry from Network to Internet

BUGS PENDING (in order of importance) (THESE ARE NOT FIXED!)
"blank page bug" --symptom, slow saving, copying of files, -
-can cause severe system slowdowns, even lockups
-(SFR, ally, 8-bit, peebee, consistent and others), STATUS -- slow progress
"lack-lustre perl bug" --symptom, pplog fails,
--cause, lack of perl modules in main sfs (SFR, 666philb), STATUS -- on to it
"marcel marceau bug" --symptom, failure in a vanilla install to update mime database,
--cause /usr/bin/update-mime-database is in devx (MHHP), STATUS -- on to it
"intel pseudo video driver bug" --symptom, poulsbo (aka gma-500) "intel" graphics don't work -
-(JustGreg, tempestuous), STATUS -- getting there. THIS is ONLY for newer than k3.3.XX
bugfix rox trash -SFR -- STATUS -- to do
bugfix /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/Templates.ui file -SFR -- STATUS -- to do

woof2-130130


Be aware that this is mainly for testing the IO bug mentioned in the last 5 or so pages of this thread ( SFR, ally, 8-bit, peebee, tallboy and others have seen this). The idea here is that I have rolled back the kernel to PRE 3.2.x to see if it's a kernel issue or an AUFS issue such that I can present Barry with some tangible evidence that there is a BUG! (It is reportedly experienced in Precise-5.4.3 official, upup-precise-3.7.2 (pemasu) and here).

Please test.. lots of other things to check too, JWM, Rox, printing, you name it.

The final release of the next Slacko in this line WILL NOT ship with this kernel, but the userspace will be very close. All reports are welcome. When testing shifts to full Beta I will open a new thread.

I only have a month, then I will be too busy for dedication to Slacko.. so.. if you like Slacko test and report.. Thanks very much in advance..

And as always have fun! Smile

Ok, I just tested 5.4.0.1 and wasn't able to recreate the issue - writing to 'pup_ro1' is fluent, no hangs...

So, is it kernel or aufs then, because I lost track somewhere along the way? Wink
Thanks!
___________

BTW, I feel kinda alienated with this bug, in a sense that noone but me could recreate it under controlled conditions. Sad

So please, if anyone would like to help in confirming that this is global issue and not local ("just-me"), the safest way to do so is to frugally install Slacko-5.4 on NTFS formatted volume in VirtualBox, create slackosave.2fs (at least 512 MB) and after reboot:
- if you have left the default pmedia=atahd in menu.lst:
Code:
cat /dev/zero > /initrd/pup_rw/root/bigfile

- if you have changed to pmedia=ataflash in menu.lst:
Code:
cat/dev/zero > /initrd/pup_ro1/root/bigfile

(there may be need to repeat it few times, using different filenames, but it never happened to me under VBox)

If HDD icon at the bottom of VBox window goes off for more than 5 sec. and WM stops responding - most likely this is it.
Then try CTRL+C to stop "cat'ting" (or better reset VM - it takes a while to things get back to normal) and the next step will be remounting the savefile:
Code:
mount -o remount,sync /dev/loop1

and repeat the 'cat' procedure to see if there's any difference.
That's all and it takes 10-15 min. to me.

If something's not clear enough or need some help - just let me know. Wink

TIA & Greetings!

running 5401 now on ext2 install

savefile wasn't picked up until it was moved to same folder (I ran out of room on the 'OS' partition to have both installed together)

my normal suite of apps installed to correct folder on this build, tighvnc to network instead of utilities for example

will run for a couple of days or until I notice an issue

Guess I'm lucky to have not experienced the "BUG" but I'll test for other things. Smile

Just did an Lxpup with the latest k-3.2.37........ not discovered any problems with it yet.

I'll do some testing as well today and the weekend.

I have not seen the "BUG" here either maybe it is because of my anti-bug repellent Very Happy Very Happy

Will also be looking forward for the next release.

Cheers

Ah, you lucky fellows - the BUG is cunning, elusive beast!
So far, only me had "privilege" to see its true, hideous face and I'll never be the same. Shocked
Hides in NTFS, doesn't like syncing.

Are you sure the fix is included in 5.4.0.1?
Looks the same as in 5.4:
- pristine boot: 777
- pmedia=ataflash: 777
- pmedia=atahd: 1777
BTW, does anyone can confirm this, because somehow I'm loosing faith in credibility of my experiences. Wink

ROX Audio-CD fix works great.

Thanks & Greetings!

Hmmm... what I thought was the fix mustn't be! I'll have another go for next version. Thanks!

EDIT... no it's a woof thing! I think when you first boot one of the init scripts changes it to 1777, but in woof/3builddistro I came across this line (@line 2137)
Code:
chmod 777 rootfs-complete/tmp
I'll report to Barry to change it to 1777.
