divisionmd,
Since frisbee is designed to run in a graphical environment, it depends on X being active.

However, once you have used it to set up a connection, maybe its setup would persist across a reboot where you could try the "pfix=nox" boot option. Maybe the connection would be made. But you could not change anything about it without frisbee in an X environment. I have never attempted that, although you might. But it would run into trouble if it needed to issue a graphical message/popup.

I have wary 5.5. I was able to install xpupsay, but the frisbee for wary 5.3 won't install.

The download link for Frisbee+xpupsay-beta2-0912.pet version 1 isn't working for me. Is it available now somewhere else?

Or is there a Frisbee that will install in wary 5.5? thanks

This is a forum issue - all attachments greater than 256kb became unavailable some time ago without notice.

I don't think I have that pet any longer - but if I do locate it I'll post a link here.

I have used it with Slacko Pup 5.7.0, so I was wondering if I could find a source tarball someplace so I could try running it on my slackware distro?

Let me know if you know, and where I could find it, please?

Thanks Smile

I'm thinking maybe I'm wasting time messing with it and I'd be better off spending the same effort tweaking Slacko Pup 5.7.0 because it already does most things I'm asking for.

PostPosted: Sun 15 Feb 2015, 15:59    Post subject: Pgprs updated to version 1.5.1  

My reworked version of pgprs-1.5 has a bug that impacts anyone attempting to use it where a username and password are not expected to be included. Earlier versions required all fields to contain something so required dummy entries for username, password and PIN code (gprsuser, gprspassword, 1234) even if they were not valid for the modem.

Version 1.5 avoids the need for those dummy values but incorrectly retains logic to require the username and password. The replacement, 1.5.1, changes that requirement to allow both or neither. If anyone knows of a case where only a username or password is appropriate, please tell me.

PostPosted: Sun 22 Feb 2015, 20:04    Post subject: frisbee-1.3.2 uploaded to correct restarting of network
Subject description: Typographic error easily fix by a simple edit.
 

I just now discovered and fixed a typo that prevented the "Restart Networks" and "Restart DHCP" buttons from performing their restarts. Frisbee-1.3.2 is with the earlier 1.3.x frisbees at:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=780962#780962

However, the fix can be made manually to versions 1.3 and 1.3.1 by editing the file:

/usr/local/frisbee/frisbee-wifi-disconnect

line 5 (changing the "-" to "_") to read:

reset_dhcp&

This does not affect versions of frisbee before 1.3.

How do you remove builtin Pwireless as Frisbee goes well ?
I trashed what i found with Pfind, but it's not a clean way.

PostPosted: Sat 07 Mar 2015, 13:44    Post subject: Updated frisbee and dhcpcd packages
Subject description: frisbee-1.3.3 & dhcpcd-dropwait-6.7.1
 

I have built new frisbee and dhcp packages for Tahrpup, Precise and Slacko. I have tested wireless only on tahrpup, but verified that the others support ethernet. Although the Precise version appears to run on Tahrpup, the Tahrpup version will not run on Precise nor Slacko.

The main improvement to the frisbee-1.3.3 package is that the user's existing wireless and frisbee setups are retained during installation, thanks to 666philb's calling my attention to that issue. The configuration files, dhcpcd.conf, frisbee.conf and wpa_supplicant.conf, are not replaced if present. Frisbee.conf gets updated, if necessary, to append new statements. Other than the settings issue, the functionality remains the same as in 1.3.2.

The dhcpcd-dropwait-6.7.1 is the current release at this time and includes a wait of up to 3 seconds for a lost carrier (connection) to get re-detected. This occurs for all network managers, not just frisbee. The old "dropwait" value option has been removed in the 1.3 frisbees -- one less variable to attend to.

Besides the puppy-specific "dropwait" versions of the dhcpcd packages, I include an "original" version of dhcpcd without the dropwait patch -- for tahrpup and later, only -- in case a developer prefers to omit the dropwait feature. I also include the source packages, which contain README-* files that explain how to build the pets.

The previously offered workaround for the automatic "hot plug" start up of wpa_supplicant for added USB wifi devices is no longer needed. Because puppy's network managers were designed without that automatic starting of wpa_supplicant, I have removed the new "hook" file, 10-wpa_supplicant, from the dhcpcd packages. To test any network manager that might be modified to handle the new dhcpcd feature, that file can be obtained from the source package's dhcpcd-hooks directory.

As always, please report any misbehavior of frisbee or dhcpcd so that I might address it.
Richard

UPDATE 4/10/2015: Uploaded frisbee-1.3.4 to incorporate recommendation by rcrsn51 to prevent shutdown hang when frisbee and samba used concurrently.

UPDATE 4/26/2015: Re-uploaded frisbee-1.3.4, after download number 20, to correct the version number displayed in its window title. As there is no functional change, individuals need not replace the original "1.3.4" -- but distro developers should take it for the next update of their distros.

hamoudoudou,
Your screeny tells me your are using Pwireless2. I found the thread for that here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=360694&search_id=1418769371#360694

I downloaded the pet package and listed its files.

To answer your question: If you have installed either pwireless or Pwireless2, then uninstall them. But I assume it is more complex than that. Since my copy of Puppy 4.3.1 does not contain Pwireless2, my guess is that you are using a remastered version that has Pwireless added.

Here is an edited list of the files I found, which would be candidates for removal -- but only if they are not needed by Frisbee.
Code:
pwireless2-1.0/etc/init.d:
Pwireless2 [Can deactivate by removing "execute" permissions.]

pwireless2-1.0/lib/dhcpcd/dhcpcd-hooks: [Keep files if needed by Frisbee.]
01-test
10-mtu
20-resolv.conf
29-lookup-hostname
30-hostname
99-dhcpup
99-down
99-ifup
99-release
99-stop
99-timeout
99-up

pwireless2-1.0/root/Startup:
pwireless2-tray [Can deactivate by removing "execute" permissions.]

pwireless2-1.0/usr/local:
Pwireless2 [Can deactivate by renaming this directory.]

pwireless2-1.0/usr/local/bin:
gtrayicon [Can deactivate by removing "execute" permissions.]
Pwireless2 [Can deactivate by removing "execute" permissions.]

pwireless2-1.0/usr/local/sbin: [Keep files if needed by Frisbee; otherwise, rename them.]
dhcpcd
wpa_cli
wpa_supplicant

pwireless2-1.0/usr/share/applications:
Pwireless2.desktop [Rename to change "desktop" to something else.]


[These should do no harm if left intact...]
pwireless2-1.0/usr/share/gtrayicon:
activate.svg
ChangeLog
deactivate.svg
gtrayicon.glade
LICENSE
README
sample.menu

pwireless2-1.0/usr/share:
gtrayicon [entire directory, if no remaining files]

pwireless2-1.0/usr/share/pixmaps:
network-offline.png
network-transmit-receive.png
network-wireless.png

Instead of deleting the files, you can remove "execute" permissions or rename files or directories as indicated in the statements bounded by "[" and "]".

You should probably experiment with a separate pupsave file where you first delete the Pwireless2 files in the list, then install the Frisbee beta package that seems to work for you.

Please be aware, though, that Pwireless and the Frisbee beta packages are beyond what I take responsibility for -- I maintain only frisbee-1.0 and later. HTH

PostPosted: Sun 08 Mar 2015, 19:13    Post subject: Desactivate Pwireless i/o removing
Subject description: nice idea.
 

it's the french Puppy named 'Toutou'with pwireless included. Desactivate pwireless instead of removing is the idea. Ok i will do as you suggest.
The icons were still in the tool bar because i did'nt scratch everything.
Remove builtin apps is not in the menu of this Puppy. (or i did'nt see it)
Thanks rerwin.
