Helloooo ! Smile

This is the Gnome 2.32.1 SFS, used in the version "PetitPois"
It works on Slacko, I'll test on other distros.
It may needs a recent Puppy.

I do not put screenshot, you know what is it. Smile

I will try to reduce the size, because it' not really light ( 195mo ).

SFS : https://sourceforge.net/projects/gnome232sfs/
MD5 : 95c4ba848902a848d55489aa7b5fa931

Administation softwares don't work ( Networks... )

Hi Jejy69

I've loaded your sfs onto a pristine frugal install of slacko.....

and all I've got is slacko with lots of extra menu items mixed in with the slacko puppy menu items.

I assume there's an xwin command needed to switch into Gnome - can you tell us what it is???

I think people really like what you are doing because you are giving us ready built good looking new puppies to try - not sure the sfs approach can do the same - certainly doesn't have the same impact as petit-pois.....

Thanks
peebee

Hi !

I have forget the patch for gnome-panels ! You'll get an error if it is not installed.
http://e-nautia.com/disk/download.php?id=2378718

Ups Sorry for my inaccuracy.
To start gnome, type 'xwin gnome-session'

It is true that there is work after, as the menu.
For the menu, applications will be housed in 'other', but I can send an adequate menu.
I put the same menu in all derivatives. At the beginning, this was the lxde menu file. Smile

jejy69, I sent you a PM about this and you have not replied. I don't know if you just haven't seen it yet or what is going on, but:

I need the gnome-panels patch, and the link posted in this thread does not work.

Please fix!

-----
Alternatively, if someone else has that patch, and can upload it to (for example) datafilehost -- that would be great. Just post a link here, please.

Hello starhawk,

Sorry, my reaction is slow. Cool
I created a new package, attached to this post.

I hope you'll enjoy it.

Just for information, you can use mate, the equivalent of gnome 2.33 somehow. Wink

Your "slow reaction" is fine, jejy69 -- it is I who needs to learn patience!

Thank you for the patch file, and for the recommendation. I have downloaded the patch, and will be trying MATE out as well.

I have some... "environmental" concerns with MATE. It is popular with the group Anonymous (or so I have heard) with which I do not care to be associated. While I am glad for the (small) good that they do, but this is overshadowed quite dramatically by the mess that is created when they are doing things which are not good.

MATE --because of the plant of the same name-- also reminds me of cannabis, which I'd rather not think about at all. Tobacco (less bad than cannabis in several ways) was too much for my grandmother (she died of a thing called emphysema -- "ehmm fih ZEE muh" -- basically, her lungs were filled with bad substances because of forty years of very fashionable cigarettes, and eventually it overpowered even what doctors could do) and so I think that any sort of similar substance would do bad things to me -- and I also have no desire to associate myself with those who would think otherwise.

Even so, I will try MATE, and try to remember that it is only a thing which puts pictures on my screen -- not anything that is disagreeable by itself, even though it might be associated with disagreeable people and things, by some who probably have too little good information at the beginning of their assumptions and associations.

EDIT: ...and perhaps it is nothing more than myself making, as we say here, a mountain out of mole-hills -- that is, inflating that which is nothing into a Big Nothing. (Shakespeare would tell it as, "much ado about nothing".)

Glad I could help you Very Happy

About Mate, I make no advertisement for anonymous Smile . In fact, you teach me now they use it. It is true that mate, it's pretty strange as a name...

Cheers !

Thou this is going a bit Off Topic, I have something to say about mate, about yerba mate, the plant from which the infusion is made. I drink almost 1 lt of mate (the infusion) every day, and please, don't associate it with tobacco, coca nor something like that.
It's a healthy habit, mate has lots of mineral, specially potassium, so drinking mate you'll never have cramps.
I must confess that it's a bit addictive, but if you don't drink it, no abstinence syndrome or anything like that. Coffee it's more addictive.

If someone can make a .pet or .sfs of Mate (the desktop), I would certainly try it.
Very Happy

Hello Galbi,

You're absolutely right! So I present my excuses. I did not want to seem as offensive.
In addition, we talk about something we do not know. It is the imagination and prejudices ...

Embarassed Right.

This is the first time I met an amateur ( someone who knows and appreciate ) of this drink. Thank you for correcting my narrow view of this. Smile

If you want to try Mate 1.5.5, you can get a SFS here :

Cheers !

Thanks Jejy69 for the link, but unfortunately I coudn't drink Mate Desktop. In Slacko 533 does not work. Had to hunt for libffi and after that, only see a black screen with the mouse arrow.

It's for Slacko 5.5 :/, I didn't make it for this 'ancient' version of Slacko.
I'm sorry. Confused

I can't make MATE work with Slacko 55 *or* with Slacko 533. I get the same behavior in both. The screen flickers for a few seconds (a cursor appears as part of this, but only briefly) and then X crashes and I'm back at a prompt Sad

GNOME doesn't work in either one, either Sad icons aren't right and no tray or menu. This is in both Slacko 55 and 533.

Of note, I'm doing this on a 1gb flash drive, with 256mb savefile and all relevant PETs/SFSs installed. Boots fine until I add either GNOME or MATE... Sad
