Works! Posting from it now. Very Happy Feels smooth and fast. Good work 666philb!

Update: Palemoon started to get really laggy after about 40 minutes and slowed everything down to a crawl (100% CPU usage), not sure why as all I had open was a few Puppy Forum tabs. Right-clicking it and pressing Kill fixed it for now.

A small first finding....

When Frisbee is started from the Welcome screen, the wifi key is corrupted when entered and so the connection is not successful.

Frisbee called from the desktop icon or from the terminal works OK.

Have seen this type of problem before - may be some sort of GTK2+ theme problem....will investigate further.

Otherwise initial tests went OK.

Cheers
peebee

Thanks again for very usable and useful pups.
Have frugal installed on a 250gb hard drive on a couple of 2009 vintage Dell Inspiron 1545 machines, one single core other dual core. No real problems, but seems to run about 5deg C hotter than Trusty.
Battery icon seems stuck at 95% capacity on mains or battery only.
No indication that usb drive icon is mounted or not, but drives work fine.
Internet fine (speedometer monitored) and shows good speeds via wifi both fixed line or mobile access using TPlink router. (However Pale Moon was a bit slow coming up with results with a speedchecker - but this could be me!)

Thanks for this one, I'll have a look later. Abiword crashes anyway (or at least the recent ones do) so I wouldn't worry about it. I've long ago learnt to never use it for anything mission critical.

I managed to manually create a lightencrypted savefile which is working. Read:

and following posts. I can print postscript files (print first to file using postscript and then "lp -c file.ps"). I have a working skype using tahr pulseaudio and libraries from tahr. I have builded an sfs but it does not properly work for me without installing apart the tahr pulseaudio pet:

PostPosted: Tue 19 Apr 2016, 14:10    Post subject: setting a wacom tablet  

Hi 666philb,
great work again !

I got a try to get an old usb Wacom Volito tablet working on Xenial:
- only /etc/X11/xorg.conf needs editing and adding the "wacom bits" as follow (should be enough ...BUT):
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
   Identifier     "X.org Configured"
   Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
   InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
   InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
#from kernel 2.6.35 and later the "SendCoreEvents" after InputDevice is no longer required
   InputDevice    "stylus"
    InputDevice    "eraser"
    InputDevice    "cursor"
    InputDevice    "pad"      
EndSection


and afterwards after the Keyboard0 section
«Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
...
EndSection»

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
      Identifier    "stylus"
      Driver        "wacom"
      Option        "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
      Option        "Type" "stylus"
     Option        "USB" "on"
#     Option        "Mode" "Absolute"
     Option        "Mode" "Relative"
     Option        "GrabDevice" "1"
      Option        "AlwaysCore" "on"
      Option        "Speed" "1.0"
      Option        "Threshold" "5"
      Option        "CursorProx" "5"
#     Option        "Speed" "5"
#     # Option        "ForceDevice"   "ISDV4"               # Serial Tablet PC ONLY
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
      Identifier    "eraser"
      Driver        "wacom"
      Option        "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
      Option        "Type" "eraser"
      Option        "USB" "on"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
      Identifier    "cursor"
      Driver        "wacom"
     Option        "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
      Option        "Type" "cursor"
     Option        "Mode" "Relative"     
      Option        "USB" "on"
     Option        "GrabDevice" "1"
#     Option        "CursorProx" "100"
     Option        "Speed" "1.0"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "pad"
    Driver         "wacom"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
    Option         "Type" "pad"
    Option         "USB" "on"
#   Option         "SendCoreEvents" "false"
    Option         "ButtonsOnly" "on"   
#    Option         "Button9" "2"
#    Option         "Button13" "3"
    Option         "Mode" "Absolute"   
EndSection

# if you have a touch pad just uncomment the next section

#Section "InputDevice"
#    Identifier     "touch"
#    Driver         "wacom"
#    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
#    Option         "Type" "touch"
#    Option         "USB" "on"
# EndSection


..BUT: after restarting X, the wacom tablet still does not work ... Confused
Looking at /dev/input: there should be a symlink /dev/input/wacom pointing to the event (here event3 - might be also 4) relevant for the usb tablet (read /proc/bus/input/devices to find which event id).
And that symlink should be automaticaly generated by a kind of wacom.rules files located in /etc/udev/rules.d or also in /lib/idv/rules.d.

How to fix it:
1. To get that symlink automatically generated, replacing the existing /lib/udev/rules.d/69-wacom.rules
by the following - given in attachment
/lib/udev/rules.d/69-xserver-xorg-input-wacom.ruleswacom.rules
fixed it.
2. unplug and re-plug the wacom tablet, which creates the /dev/input/wacom symlink discussed above;
3. restart X to activate the wacom instructions contained in xorg.conf.

I cannot explain more as i only went to this by "cut and try" method by comparison with a working configuration (as also mainly by learnings from forum member Pizzasgood's 2007 initialized nice thread here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=104828#104828 and following)

When the wacom tablet settings are working OK, the command
Code:
# xsetwacom --list devices

returns something like (lists the wacom tablet elements)
Code:
sh-3.00# xsetwacom --list devices
stylus                             id: 8   type: STYLUS   
eraser                             id: 9   type: ERASER   
cursor                             id: 10   type: CURSOR   
pad                                id: 11   type: PAD       
sh-3.00#


If it does not return anything , X does not "see" the tablet.

Best regards
Charlie

PostPosted: Wed 20 Apr 2016, 02:20    Post subject: pup_event_frontend_d to be manually activated  

Hi 666philb,

have noticed this on a pristine installation of Xenialpup 7.0.0:

clicking on a disk icon (here sda6) opens a rox window showing sda6 directory; and a green flag pops up in the upper-right corner of the disks icon.

pmount shows that sda6 is mounted;

clicking on that green flag is expected to unmount the correcponding disk; and aftrwds to swith of that green flag.

Here, what happens:
when clicking on that green flag, pmount shows that the disk is effectively unmounted; but the green flag keeps displaying.

To switch it off, doing
Code:
# pup_event_frontend_d

in a console switch it off

Cheers, Charlie
