I didn't compile it. The links are apps from the Slacko repo. at ibiblio.org.
But I'm glad to know it works. Shinobar's getnvidia pet compiles Nvidia driver as well.

I have to compiled PCManFM, SpaceFM and Xfe in Tinted Slacko --> www.smokey01.com/Tman/apps/slacko5.5_apps/Filesystem/

I did not get around to compiling Thunar, but the pet for Wary works --> thunar-1.0.2-1-w5.pet
Also, I had issues compiling emelFM2, but aragon has a version which seems to be working --> emelFM2 - aragon

I have added the needed dependencies for PCManFM and Xfe and combined them into the pets. Spacefm requires no extra dependencies in Slacko.
PCManFM has some bugs,,, I can't seem to get the "trash" or "Applications" options to work properly. Any insight on a fix would be appreciated.

On PCManFM, I believe it it is not being maintained and that SpaceFM is the follow-on to it. SpaceFM as compiled works just fine in TintedSlacko and all of my plugins installed ok but... as compiled, it doesn't support the --desktop option and I'm working toward an openbox/spacefm combo with no ROX pinboard. The SpaceFM 0.8.3 found in the repositories does have that support enabled and installed correctly with no additional depends and started as spacefm --desktop in startup or .xinitrc instead of ROX does manage wallpaper and desktop ok. Currently posting from that non-ROX combo.

Tinted also suspends on lid closure correctly but 'resuspends' after waking up on lid open exactly as did LH64 here (ninth post down,sorry) http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=87053&start=60 In tinted, the code doesnt exist in /etc/acpi/actions/suspend.sh so I added it at the beginning of the script. Resuspend gone.

The current tint2 GUI config still seems a bit flakey. Once a panel is close, manually editing /root/.config/tint2/tint2rc works better.

Basically, everything working perfectly on this Fujitsu s6520 all intel core 2 duo laptop. Next to compare processor use etc on this install vs LH64. I think this laptop is right on the cusp between 32/64 and I'm curious. Thanks for the extra effort on the file managers.

Thanks Marv, for the feedback. I will add the script to fix the resuspend issue. I created the spacefm pet with the --disable-desktop-integration option on purpose, but attached is the buildpet script I used for it.

Just remove the phony .gz extension and move the file to the /usr/share/buildpet folder,
then in the terminal, type: buildpet /usr/share/buildpet/spacefm.bp

(slacko 5.5 devx needs to be loaded)
spacefm.bp.gz

Version 0.5 has been uploaded. See the first post for the download link.

I have added deadbeef, conky, and zsnes. You can enable/disable conky with Appstarter. The code for the resuspend issue has also been added.

Recently someone sent me a pdf file that I was not able to view with the default pdf viewer. I downloaded and installed Foxit PDF Reader which had no problems with the file...epdfview has now been replaced with Foxit PDF Reader.

EDIT: I have also added a script named /root/Startup/STARTUP_APPS.sh. It loads xcompmgr (and other apps) by default, so if you find it is slowing down your system, or giving you other problems, you can disable it by editing line 24.

I am starting a new job tomorrow, so development will probably slow down for a while. There is not much more I want to add to this release, but I am thinking of building a fatter version at a later time with Gimp, VLC, Wine, Xfce and perhaps some other apps.


enjoy!

Hi Tman,

the current version Tinted Slacko 0.5 I have installed me as Frugall install on my Sony Vaio VGN-FE21H laptop.
The first tests showed that everything works good condition.
I hope and look forward to future versions of this derivative.
Thank you for this Puppy Linux derivative and best of luck in your new job.

Best Regards

Hi Ansivar,

ipager does work, but have you tried the Tint2 themes; numbers 3 and 4? They have separate boxes in the taskbar for each virtual desktop.

Also you can switch desktops by using your mouse and scrolling up or down on the taskbar.

I tried your pet, thanks for your efforts.

Tman,

I have created a new package manager for Akita, and within it is a frontend for buildpet. If you are interested, the buildpet tab could be extracted and used standalone in tinted Slacko, or whatever else contains buildpet > 0.5 ..

Here are a screenshot:

Installed on 4Gbyte USB key. Running without save file.

DELL i5 laptop: works good. Sound and video and WIFI work ootb. my first TINT2 experience.

eeePC (N270): not as snappy as Slacko 533, but all works fine. Video, audio, WIFI. Firefox works fine, but is not as efficient as Opera. Thanks to Conky have good comparison.

On the eeePC, showing same youtube video (CPU usage)

Firefox
Firefox 20%
Flash 40-50%

Opera 12.02 (from Slacko 533 repository, I has available)
Opera 8%
Flash 40-50%

Memory usage is simlar (Opera does not consume more memory).
Opera 12.xx is more efficient than 11.xx on Tinted Slacko

Even Barry includes Opera as low resource browser in Precise (where Seamonkey is the power browser. I really don't understand why Opera not the browser of choice for puppy linux.

Thanks very much, sc0ttman. I've been meaning to create a frontend gui for buildpet and have put it on the back-burner for so long now Rolling Eyes ... I got lazy since using the command line for buildpet was simple enough for me.

Your Package Manager looks nice...a fantastic achievement!

Volhout,
Thanks for testing and for your feedback. I still prefer Firefox because of the Add-ons I use for it, but perhaps I will build a version with Opera web browser for a change.

Is that package manager compatible with other Puppy versions? If buildpet script is in good functional state why not make this as default, especially because standard build script for pet packages does not exist, and many people when compiling pet packages just repeat same actions over and over after every new program release. Perhaps you should inform Barry Kauler about this new package manager - he ignored my suggestions about providing standard build script template for pet packages, but maybe will accept finished product, just by looking screen shot it seems like real improvement.


simargl,
The thread for buildpet is -> here

buildpet itself should work in any pup, while the individual .bp scripts for each application or library should work, so long as the dependencies are met, and the location of the sources remain the same.

My vision was to have compilers pool their knowledge and share config options for apps which they compiled, which are not included yet as a buildpet script. I see that there have been over 200 downloads during the time of this post, but sadly not a lot of other compilers have stepped up and given there compile options for apps that are not in the archive, so I have been creating new scripts slowly, on my own... which reminds me, I will put out a new tarball with updated .bp scripts this weekend. My new job and moving to a new town has kept me preoccupied and away from puppy stuff lately, but things are settling down.
