FAIL on two counts.

gvfs pet wouldn't install (got a "failed to install" box with a red icon). MATE wouldn't start -- examination of dmesg indicates that it's got the same gmbus issue that GNOME2.32 had.

Indeed I got a crash with Gvfs too.
I'll try to compile it, maybe it will work.

May have figured out the problem. GMBUS is something to do with Intel, not GNOME. Whether or not it works is determined by the driver one uses with Intel hardware.

It appears, from what (little) I understand and can gather (and given the info in that last paragraph), that the gma500 driver (which I'm using) in Puppy -- particularly the Upup series of Puplets -- does not have support for GMBUS and GNOME/MATE happen need that support. There is a patch for the gma500 driver to fix this, and I've asked Pemasu if he can make that happen in his latest Puplet -- Upup Precise 3992.

IF that's the issue, and IF it can be fixed, then that should, reasonably speaking, enable this MATE to work on Poulsbo hardware.

EDIT: I was wrong Sad it must be something else...

IMPORTANT: uncheck the box about download managers, then click "download" -- do NOT click "download now"!!

DAY-LATER EDIT: now it's a link! D'oh!

It seems to me that Puppy is sorely lacking a desktop manager utility as one of it`s apps.
Lots of wonderful different desktops, and they all need "fiddling" with to get them to work.

A boot-time GUI list of available desktops to select from, and auto. start-up management.
With a CheckBox option ( ListBox? ) to set the selected desktop as the boot-time default.

The one or two GUI's to switch WM's (don't know exactly their names and/or forum threads) need to be updated, too. Although some WM's and DE's don't really get along well installed together.

BTW, I remember I had to edit a file to get this MATE package working on Puppy, but the instructions seem to be removed from this thread. Could anyone post them again, please?

According to jejy69 you're supposed to put some code in xinitrc... lazy bum that I am I tend to leave it out and it works just fine for me anyways.

EDIT: well, for LXDE and XFCE. Can't get anything GNOME based working on the one piece of hardware I want it to work on Sad but I'll get that sorted pretty soon...

starhawk; It might solve the problem if a DT manager made links to the various DT config. files.
So many different alias named config. files could be installed and pointed to by the links.
The DT manager would only have to over-write the links to point to the new current DT files.

vicmz; Lots of code, apps., and utilities have come and gone from Puppy. A shameful loss.

DeskTop, sorry for the abbreviation.

I figured the context of the conversation was enough to allow it.
