That sounds like the known problem of the wl driver erroneously claiming a wifi device it shouldn't.....and may be showing up because you upgraded a savefile from 15.02 to 15.05? This was meant to be cured in a pristine install of 15.05.

Run lsmod - if it shows the wl driver loaded & you don't have Broadcom wifi then I suggest you should blacklist wl & reboot

Cheers

Updated 15.05.2 versions of LxPupTahr have been uploaded - see:

lx-pup.weebly.com

The 15.05.2 pae and nopae versions have the following changes:

- openbox-3.6.1
- tahrfix7 as of 6-aug-15
- smaller iso size (from bigger .sfs block size)

Everything else including kernel remains the same - (hence the minor version increase to 15.05.2)

Cheers

I believe that is the Whisker menu which is specific to xfce - it does not work on LXDE and as far as I can tell nobody has implemented a LXDE equivalent.

Hello pinotte

Bit confused as the screenie you've attached is showing the jwm desktop rather than the lxde desktop of lxpup.....

You say you are booting from cd - but don't mention where and in what format your personal savefolder/file is stored?

FIRST ACTION before attempting recovery is to BACKUP your savefolder/file!!

The easiest way to recover would be to start afresh with LxPupTahr-15.05 and create a new savefolder and rebuild your system from there.

If you are using a SAVEFOLDER and you don't want to do this you could try RENAMING the folder /root/.config (a hidden file notice the .config) in the savefolder and rebooting. If this works you could then move back from the old .config any items other than those for lxde - i.e. not
autostart
gtk-2.0
libfm
lx-autostart
lxpanel
lxpanelx
lxterminal
openbox
pcmanfm

Also, you should rename/delete file /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/LxPuppyPin if it exists.

You should also drop out to the console and type: xwin startlxde

If you are using a .2fs/.3fs/.4fs savefile then it would be more complicated.

I've tested upgrading from 14.10 to 15.05 and it proceeds ok apart from a need to fix parcellite in autostart because its been replaced by a different clipboard manager.

Hope you recover.
Cheers
peebee

Hello Peebee,

My personal savefolder / file is Stored on sda1 and with puppylxtahr_14,10.sfs and other .sfs files

1) I backed up my files, my bookmarks, etc ...

2) I removed my lxtahrsave.2fs

3) I start afresh with LxPupTahr-10,10,1 and create a new savefolder and rebuild my system from there.

4) I just have to configure programs with my wine, I'm not too comfortable with that, but I'll get there.

The puppy is fine now
Thank you for your info.

PostPosted: Wed 19 Aug 2015, 18:42    Post subject: Folder icons  

Flat-remix icon set has a number of alternative colours for folder icons....

The attached pet provides a shell script to choose a different colour and switch to it.

This will probably be integrated into the desktop appearance changer in the next release - so it doesn't have a menu item - run

lx-folder-options

either via the run command in the menu or in a terminal.

Subject description: multi-session dvd
 

I burned the LxPupTahr-15.05.2-pae.iso to a multisession DVD+RW to use
on my macmini.
I used 2 sessions to do the setup, installed the kodi sfs in session 2
but it didn't show up in the menu after rebooting, I unloaded and
reloaded the sfs and it's back in the menu with all the settings from
session 2.

Computer
Processor 4x Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz
Memory 16534MB (444MB used)
Machine Type Physical machine
Operating System LxPupTahr - 15.05
User Name root (root)
Date/Time Mon 24 Aug 2015 12:14:17 AM EDT
Display
Resolution 1920x1080 pixels
OpenGL Renderer Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ivybridge Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2
X11 Vendor The X.Org Foundation
Audio Devices
Audio Adapter HDA-Intel - HDA Intel PCH
Audio Adapter PC-Speaker - pcsp

Takes a while to boot but it's working well.

EDIT: I added wine-1.17.50 and some other applications.
Suspend works okay but needed a good shaking to wake it up.
Overall this is running smooth as silk Smile


Thanks

EDIT:

root# uptime
10:05:34 up 10 days, 3:16, load average: 0.05, 0.21, 0.31

Still running smooth as silk.

PostPosted: Tue 01 Sep 2015, 05:04    Post subject: LxPupPreciseRetro-15.09
Subject description: Update
 

LxPupPreciseRetro is the flavour of LxPup suitable for older and/or slower computers, based on Precise Puppy 5.7.2

Download from here
The .iso is smaller due to better compression.

The previous release was LxPupPreciseRetro-15.02

I've updated it to the current "look and feel" of the other LxPup flavours (Slacko and Tahr flavours). So it now has flat-remix icons and W8PhoneColoursOB window borders.

Other changes are:

Opera is now the default web browser (Seamonkey is still available in the menu and can be set to the default using Setup -> Default Applications Chooser (neither have been updated).

The following components have also been updated:
    bash_4.2-2
    frisbee-1.3.4-20150426
    getflash-1.5-6
    gtkdialog3
    openbox-3.6.1
    openssl-1.0.1p
    openssl-solibs-1.0.1p
    pfilesearch-2.0
    pfind-6.2
    ppm_auto-2
    PupControl-2.6
    Pup-SysInfo-2.6
    YASSM-2.7

Cheers

PostPosted: Mon 28 Sep 2015, 05:19    Post subject: LxPup-15.06.4-s-pae  

UPDATE
LxPup-15.06.4-s-pae.iso (the Slacko flavour) is available to download.

Changes are:Kernel unchanged

If you use this new version with an existing savefolder/savefile you should:

1. uninstall via the package manager wifitray-0.4alpha-lx.pet if you have installed this option

2. apply the following "patch" in a terminal and then restart the window manager if you get error messages about network_tray.desktop on startup:
Code:
rm /root/.config/autostart/network_tray.desktop
