Just having a very brief play - looking fantastic so far, Peebee. Love the fact that adding compositing/Compton adds virtually no resource overhead.

Thanks!

Slackware-14.1 flavour of LxPup

LxPup-16.07.1-s {devx} {kernel sources}

ISO md5 = 584882d130a554e552e6dbbb6d3307db LxPup-16.07.1-s-pae-uefi.iso

Things to note:

I did a manual frugal install to a usb hard drive, pc is a hp mini
stream:

video-info-glx 1.5.3 Sat 23 Jul 2016 on LxPup 16.07 Linux 4.6.4-lxpup-32-pae i686
2.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0b)

X Server: Xorg Driver: modesetting
X.Org version: 1.14.3
dimensions: 1920x1080 pixels (507x285 millimeters)
depth of root window: 24 planes

direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.4
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 9.1.7

Intel(R) Celeron(R) 2957U @ 1.40GHz
Core 0: @800 1: @800 MHz

I switched to the modesetting driver because the intel driver couldn't
play youtube videos very well, the modesetting drivers plays them well
but can't go full screen in mplayer, it can do full screen in vlc.

I needed to add "intel_pstate=disable" to the kernel line in menu.lst
in order to get the CPU Frequency Scaling Tool to work.

Subject description: whoa......
 

Ok, admitted many distro linux & puppy user here. Machines and hard drives around the house all sporting multiple partitions with many labels, still managed by the exquisite simplicity of grub4dos.

But 6-7 months ago, I made myself go to all 64-bit everything. Figured it was the future, everyone keeps telling/yelling that at me, so I plunged. Have learned quite a bit along the way. But every once in awhile, I would stare at peebee's different lxpup versions, and tell myself to give one a go, much like I had with Barry's stuff for many years. Yeah, just do it, you know, just for fun, a few days, and then get it out of my system and be back on to the 64-bit slog.

Well, I loaded LxPup Xenial 16.07, kernel 4.5.2, and on two of my 6-7 year old dual-core 2.8ghz Athlon II Regors with 4-8GB DDRII ram, this creation of Peebee's----for lack of a better word---truly screams. I am totally in "whoa" state for several days now. A smile on my face every time I use it, which has become basically all the time And the best part is, I haven't managed to crash it yet no matter how much I plow/throw at it. This can't be said about the 64-bit pups of the past 12 months, as I've tanked basically all of them in one way or another when pushing them to their limits.

Peebee, darn you, you just might have kicked me off the 64-bit road as if I am a drunken luddite sailor. Weeks/months of hard work teaching myself about 64-bit, especially when compiling stuff, and getting my head around the different libraries & their infuriating tendencies, and the temptation, lure, the visceral draw of wondering what you were up to, has grabbed me.

This 32-bit Xenial lxpup of yours is just dam#, dam# absolutely dam# fine work.

PostPosted: Sun 31 Jul 2016, 15:54    Post subject: desktop savefile button LxPupXenial-16.07.1?  

Hi Peebee and all,

I set up LxPupXenial-16.07.1, everything runs great for me, I just had a question about the savefile function in LXPupXenial. When I set everything up doing the initial full install to a USB, I am pretty sure I chose "savefile". So, now, every 30 mins (as set in Puppy Event Manager, Save Session tab) LXPupXenial saves any changes and also at shutdown saves changes. My question is this: can I have a desktop shortcut for this saving function, so that I can choose to save all current changes at that moment?

My problem is I have one of those bad Gigabyte AM2/AM2+ motherboards where the USB stays lit up & on no matter what is set in boot. Therefore, when shutting down, if there's anything plug into any USB port, the motherboard will automatically reboot. So, to avoid this, I want to be able to use a desktop save file button in LxPUPXenial to save whatever I might have done up to that point, then I have a USB switch setup where I automatically punch it and it unplugs the USB (while LxPupXenial is still running), and I let it shutdown that way from ram.

Problem is, I can't figure out how to get a desktop savefile button on LxPupXenial like I have on my Tahr64s and a few other pups I use that have the savefile function. Is it possible or not in LxPupXenial?? If so, how do I go about it??

Thanks


P.S. I notice it says to set PUPMODE=77 to get manual save with desktop icon and at shutdown. But how does one set LcxPupXenial into this PUPMODE=77? What file do I edit with Geany/Leafpad?? I am currently setup as PUPMODE=13...it says right in the Puppy Event manager, Save Session tab that in PUPMODE=13 there is supposed to be a "save" icon on the desktop, and also a save occurs at shutdown. But I've not seen any desktop "save icon" since I set installed LxPupXenial and set it up. What did I do wrong??

I have PUPMODE=13 (using pmedia=ataflash in grub4dos) and this should create a Save icon on desktop after you create a savefile. Not sure why LxPupXenial-16.07.1 doesn't, but the file that icon points to is /usr/sbin/save2flash, so maybe dragging a shortcut to that from there to the desktop will work (or maybe it was disabled in LxPupXenial on purpose)?

Hi Sailor,

Trying your suggestion right now....thanks. Will report in a minute.


EDIT:

Big thanks, Sailor. It works. Now that I know where the darn file is, I am going to create a menu item and .desktop file, so it looks nice on the desktop with a "savefile" icon I copy from one of the other pups. I must've did something wrong setting LxPupXenial up, as I cannot figure out why that desktop "savefile" icon wasn't created. Anyhow, thanks again!!

There is a built-in .pet at:

/opt/lxpup-xtras/lx_save2flash-1.pet

The absence is because the Puppy savespace routines don't know about the lxde desktop.....

Thanks, Peebee. I knew you had probably already accounted for it. I was just getting frustrated at myself for not figuring it out. Just installed the save2flash-1.pet and up popped the nice-looking desktop icon. Thank you! I see some other goodies in the lxpup-xtras folder. Nice Very Happy

Just installed lxxenialpup. All seems to work well, including lxrightclick, lxsave2flash and lxdesktop drive icons.

If it was me, I'd install at least the lxrightclicks by default.

Great job, keep up the good work.

Hi Peebee,
Thanks for the LxPup_Xenial variant.
It works fine on my PC except for the loading of sfs files.
For example I run Calibre as an sfs load but the install does not add a menu entry.
The Calibre binary is in /usr/local/Calibre/bin and the os cannot find it ie it cannot be found when clicking the Run option from the menu or from a terminal.
The program runs fine if the binary is clicked.
Thanks again.
Brendan

Did you Restart the Window Manager.....??

If it still does not appear, there must be an unrecognised category in the .desktop file - you will need to locate it in /usr/share/applications and edit it to the same value as an existing menu item that does show.

Never mind. I confirmed this problem also occurs in Xenial Pup 7.01. I am reporting it there.

Think I might have found a small bug/something missing.

I just attempted to use the Universal Installer to put lxxenial puppy on a USB drive. I formatted the drive to Ext4 using gparted when prompted to do so in the installer. Then I chose it to do the install and got the following error.

Quote:
You need 'Extlinux version 4.x for frugal install on 'ext4' partitions.


I repeated it again and got the same error.

Will try again with Ext3 and see if I get the same or similar message.

edit: it worked correctly with Ext3 and I was able to boot it up and create a save folder.
