Please edit /root/.xinitrc (hidden file) as follows:

Please test and report any problems.
Thanks


Edits as above. Two reboots tested, no mouseclick required to see panel etc. This on a machine that always required a mouseclick. My only question now is what do I do with the cow with the target on it Laughing I'll continue to use and test on the Bay Trail desktops also.

Edited: Also OK on ASRock Q1900M motherboard system (j1900 2GHz quad core Bay Trail-D processor). No mouseclick required to see panel etc.

Thanks,

PostPosted: Tue 02 Dec 2014, 05:14    Post subject: LxPup14.12  

LxPup14.12 has been uploaded....

This is the Slacko5.9.3 (Slacko6Beta2) flavour of LxPup with the non-pae kernel 3.4.94

Various small tweaks and tidy ups in reaction to comments on the forum - including the recent .xinitrc change.

Main significant change is the addition of the Compton compositor. This is disabled as default but can be switched on using the Boot Manager - Startup Apps or by using the Change Appearance menu. Compton is quite small and adds (optional) transparency, shadows and fading to the desktop environment.

I have been unable to find a GTK2 gui editor for the Compton configuration file so changes to the settings are done by editing the file directly and then restarting the window manager. (the best I have found is xcompton-tools rpm build for : PCLinuxOS but this uses command line switches rather than a configuration file so would need significant development). (There is a Qt based tool for LXQT).

Cheers

PostPosted: Tue 02 Dec 2014, 17:09    Post subject: Memory  

Hi PeeBee,

I know this is not the right forum for the question, but I stumble upon it using LxPup, so that is why I ask here.

The strength of puppy was that everything is in RAM (frugal install), and guess what.... even with browser cache set to 0, running 14.12 with a 512Mbyte save file 3/4 full...I am out of memory.... (If I open my browser with youtube).

This is a 1 Gbyte system.

Is there any alternative other than doing a full install ?

Can I copy my system (including the save file) to a full install ? Or do I have to start virgin, and add all the pets and stuff again ?

Thank you in advance for any tips....

P.S. it was quite confusing to see that some tools like HTOP, Taskmanager, tell me I use only 200 Mbyte....While Top shows me I use 900 Mbyte. It was only then that I realized what was going on.

Hi Volhout

I suspect I'm not the best person to answer as I only ever do frugal installs - never ever done a full install of any Puppy except Quirky!

I would imagine that watching a YouTube video in your browser is pretty memory intensive....but it will depend on which browser and how it has been written to buffer the video....

AFAIK - both frugal installs and full installs load all Puppy programs into memory up to the limit of your available memory. Same goes for any additional SFS or Pets you have installed. If you haven't got enough physical memory and you haven't got a swap space setup then programs will be loaded from disk as and when needed.

So the first thing I would suggest is to setup a swap area on your disk if you have not already done so. http://puppylinux.org/wikka/SwapFile may help.

The free command should give an accurate memory usage snapshot. top shows usage in kb whereas htop displays mb.....I think

As for converting a frugal install to a full install - I don't think you should need to do it - but here's an old thread if you do: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=49330

Otherwise - suggest you post a query in Forum index » House Training » Beginners Help ( Start Here)

This may be useful - Understanding mounts/memory/RAM & filesystems/_save file

Cheers

Subject description: can't connect to the internet D-Link USB modem rt2800
 

Before with LxPup 13.01 it was easy to connect to the web;

Now I have tried all the latest LxPup versions and none is able to connect to the web with my wireless usb modem;

I have a D-Link wlan usb drive; in release 13.01 the system 'sees' the modem automatically after booting;

In 14.10 the driver is installed but somehow neither frisbee nor Dougal's nor SNS can connect, the wlan is down;

I have tried everything I could but I can't connect to the web now.

I would appreciate any help since it is hard to do anything without a connection to the internet.

Thanks for your help.

Please see earlier discussion - suspect you have the same problem....

Run lsmod in a terminal - if the wl driver is being loaded please blacklist it using System - System - Boot Manager - Modules

then reboot.

If this doesn't work, please run dmesg in a terminal and see if there are any error messages wrt your wifi - most likely will be missing firmware messages.

I'm assuming that you are running the LxPupTahr14.10-pae flavour??

Cheers

thanks PeeBee,

I should have said that my HDD is dead and that I am running puppy live from an usb drive for the last 2 years - I can remix it though, for a more permanent solution.

I have tried with every major release since LxPup 13.01. And I have searched in the foruns and tried what is proposed in some of them. One of the advices I got was to buy another usb modem... which does not make much sense since the modem works fine with the previous versions.

I tried with 13.04 beta, 14, 14.10, pae, retro, Racy, you name it.

Only 13.01 works.

And the fact that it is so easy to get online with 13.01 is very frustrating.
I would stick with 13.01 but it is slow with my PC and I am starting to have a lot of dependencies issues with more recent apps I need to use for school.

The library where I am now is closing and I must go but tomorrow I will try what you proposed and give a feedback.

On initial set up on my Laptop which has Intel 4965 wifi chip, I was able to setup wifi. On reboot there was no wifi. I followed the above instructions and black listed the wl driver. On reboot wifi now working again.

All is good now. Thanks.

LxPupTahr14.12 in both pae and non-pae versions is available from:

http://lx-pup.weebly.com/current-download.html

The build includes the service_pack-6.0_TO_6.0.1_tahr

Other changes are to bring the Tahr flavour into line with the Slacko flavour including the Compton compositor (disabled by default).

PostPosted: Sun 04 Jan 2015, 03:46    Post subject: **EXPERIMENTAL** LxPupUnicorn-15.1  

**EXPERIMENTAL**

LxPupUnicorn-15.1.00-pae.iso with kernel 3.17.7

Constructed by updating tahrpup with unicornpup (updated libraries in /lib and /usr/lib removed) so somewhat bigger (but I'm not one to reinvent perfectly good wheels) (anything else I should have removed? some extra apps and backgrounds cf tahrpup)

Netsurf removed.

No Broadcom wl wifi driver as I haven't compiled yet for k3.17.7 (need kernel sources)

There is a problem with unicornpup, carried into LxPupUnicorn, on my HP laptop - loses 50% screen brightness when dropping out to terminal.... a fix pet is attached

Also, doesn't seem to be any modesetting driver for my nvidia graphics.....

Please test and let me know what else is wrong.

Cheers
