I would like to suggest a small expansion of the JWM configuration manager.

There are currently six options, the one I miss is the opportunity to change, via a GUI, the fonts that JWM uses.

I'm an English speaker an use an EN locale, but I also have large numbers of files with non-latin names.

Whenever I install a Puppy/Quirky system, I install a unicode font and then edit /root/.jwm/jwmrc-theme in order to change the font for Window style, Task List style and Popup style so that my non-latin file names will display correctly in JWM windows and on the panel.

As a Puppy newbie in 2009 I had no trouble installing a unicode font and getting a correct display of non-latin file names throughout Puppy - except for JWM. I put up with gibberish on window headers and the panel for a long time before finally hunting down the configuration file I needed to hack to fix the problem.

Changes made into /root/.jwm/jwmrc-theme will disappear next time when changing the JWM theme.

Better find out what's the original of /root/.jwm/jwmrc-theme (to be found in /root/.jwm/themes) and doing the changes in original theme file (also).

I think this may be also the cause why there' isn't a option to change fonts from within JWM configuration manager, as there could be different ways used to set the font related to the theme definition file in /root/.jwm/themes?

PostPosted: Thu 09 Mar 2017, 17:10    Post subject: X Precise 64?  

Hi How about X- precise 64?
X -precise was the easiest possible puppy to use. it would run almost anything, had a frisbee connection manager, and was so simple to use, I could use it with my eyes closed.

Precise is amazing, in fact puppy is amazing. it fills the huge gap in the OS market very well, especially for people with older machines, people who transport their OS around the world, and people who like to run in ram.

the problem is that ram is becoming very easy to come by.
most people have 16gb of ram and even that is starting to increase.

puppy fills the void for slower machines, but what about the faster, powerful machines?

I download fatdog 64 recently but I ran into a torrent of problems trying to install 64 bit apps. fatdog made a good attempt at it, but I simply could find all the apps in the repo, and I ended up trying to run slacko 14.1 versions, with limited results.

fatdog, - or anydog, particularly precise with an xfce desktop and thunar manager would be a very powerful but simple OS to use.
and the 64bit version would allow people to copy and paste large file into ram much more easily.

Wildman69 Surprised)

What video (card) or chipset do you have running in that 'puter?

Most pups have Pup-Sys Info (PSI) in the menu. Click on the devices then display --> Video Info. (Thats the quick way)

Regards

On topic:

I would like to see migration away from OpenSSL, and towards LibreSSL.
Older puppies are already using three defunct versions of OpenSSL; 0.9.8, 1.0.0, and 1.0.1.
OpenSSL 1.0.2 still has SSL2/3 TLS1.0 code in it, that will cause problems.

Regards
8Geee
