Do not understand what you are looking for...... a bit confusing....what change on the fly ?

About separate Wallpapers on two Desktops ......don`t know .....which Desktop Enviroment are you using ...Jwm?.....OpenBox ?

Could you please post your whole menu.lst -----not just a fragment ...

Here is a link for how I set up Chrome on Debian Dog 64.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=919815#919815

Note that Chrome hasn't been updating its 32 bit version for several months. If you want to use Chrome, you probably ought to be using a 64 bit version.

edit: Download the readme.txt file at the link. I've attached the two scripts it refers to.

Thanx backi

Sorry about Confusing yoU, I Don't have Any intentions of making or saving Changes On the Fly, it's just that I must have Misunderstood what yoU & Fred were saying.

The Desktop eNvironment is the Default, OpenBox I Guess? Judging by those Menu items under Settings & Advanced Settings.

# menu.lst produced by grub4dosconfig-v1.7
color white/blue black/cyan white/black cyan/black
timeout 5
default 5

initrd /casper/initrd.lz

Sorry I wasn't allowed 2 Post Me Menu.lst File as an Attachment!

BTW I didn't think that Open Box was Compositing... should it work w/ Compiz?

Thanx dancytron 4 Your interest & Feedback, Actually I'm Hoping 2 Do an Updated Remastered ChromeBook like Pup similar 2 ETP, eXcept that Unfortunately I couldn't install ChildsPlay, GCompris & wRiteType on His Version, All of which have Successfully installed on this XenialDog which itself does have a nice Look & Feel, However My intention is 2 give it a Comfy Old Slippers ChromeBook Look & Feel as ETP did.

I Plan 2 install this on Disowned 7 - 14 Year Old PCs, hence the Requirement of 32 bit Chrome & of course it's Great that this is a LTS Release. I haven't Yet implemented Your instructions 2 get Chrome going, I'll let yoU know how it goes.

Meantime if AnyBody knows about How 2 have independent Desktop Wallpapers, Please Share it...

Thanx 4 Your Support Guys!

BTW dancytron, the Last 32 bit Chrome I could Find was 42

Re Step 7. in Your ReadMe Procedure, I'm Happy 2 Keep Firefox as a Secondary Alternative Browser & Not Uninstall or Delete, should I instead Edit sum other File & if so which 1 & Where? Please

& Step 10. Save2Flash Refuses 2 Stick 2 the Desktop! & Wouldn't save the Session Data!

Obviously ChromeBook has Loads of Google Dependencies so I'm "Addicted" 2 that Laughing Shocked Wink

Alas a Necessary Evil!

The only important thing is the two scripts that have the correct command line to make Chrome run as root (or as puppy from root).

The save2flash script only works for Porteus boot when you are setup to save on exit only. If you are aren't set up that way, it doesn't do anything.

If you are not going to uninstall firefox, then all you should need to do is install Chrome (and gksu if you are going to run as puppy) and then use one of the two scripts to start it.

I don't have it in front of me, but if you aren't using the JWM desktop, I think you put the icons on the desktop by right clicking and then choosing send to desktop. If not, you need to manually create a link from the script to the /root/desktop folder.

If you are happy with local html files opening in firefox, you can skip that part too.

All the setting icons stuff is obviously optional too if the default icons are okay for you.

Hi Max,

Since I understand that you chose using changes folder /changes , I would advice to change your menu.lst to this:

Code:
# menu.lst produced by grub4dosconfig-v1.7
color white/blue black/cyan white/black cyan/black
timeout 5
default 5
 
title XenialDog - porteus-boot  - changes=/changes folder
uuid 5c387258-82bd-4a25-822d-fbbfd086f08d
kernel /casper/vmlinuz noauto from=/ changes=/
initrd /casper/initrd1.xz

title XenialDog - porteus-boot - save on exit /changes folder
uuid 5c387258-82bd-4a25-822d-fbbfd086f08d
kernel /casper/vmlinuz noauto from=/ changes=EXIT:/
initrd /casper/initrd1.xz

 title XenialDog - porteus-boot Always Fresh
uuid 5c387258-82bd-4a25-822d-fbbfd086f08d
kernel /casper/vmlinuz from=/ nomagic base_only norootcopy
initrd /casper/initrd1.xz

title Reboot computer
reboot


The first will save all changes automatically during a session (no prompt at shutdown to save or not because already saved while running the system)

The second (with the EXIT), at shutdown you'll be asked to save the session or not and also you can use "save2flash" in the middle of a session.

The third "Always fresh" will not save the session, so all changes will be lost.

About your question for different wallpaper on each workspace:
By default it's not possible with Openbox, but there may be some workarounds you can try, e.g. see here (but I didn't test):
https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=657
You might find more when doing a Google search

Hope this helps.

Fred

Users could feed back a little more ! there is an huge difference nowadays about what subjects make the forum and how our OS are used... Users are a little bit frightened by the forum
Personaly xenialDog makes what i need, wireless, Packages, saving are working perfectly. Devs are so busy that we don't want to disturb.

Just one partition? or is it OK for you also to auto-mount all partitions?
Just one needs some simple script (or configuration) and for auto-mount all (if porteus-boot used) simply leave out the 'noauto' parameter from the kernel (boot) line.

Fred

Dancytron, I've installed Chrome 48 32bit from the Link that yoU Posted, Thanx, But I Guess that I Misunderstood your ReadMe instructions re How 2 handle the 2 Scripts, in Fact I'm rather Unfamiliar w/ How 2 Apply them All together... From the Desktop Chrome-Puppy.sh I Opened as Txt & then Copied All & Pasted into the ROXTerm & Ran, Same w/ Chrome-Root.sh, then Chrome Opened, is that How it's Supposed 2 Work?

Fred, I Think I've installed the Required Script & feh, Thanx 4 the Link, But I can't find the Location / Path of the Desktop Wallpaper Backgrounds...

Next I'll Edit Me Menu.lst File, including the Fantom mention...

title No M$ Virus Bait! & Test

Thanx again 4 All your Help Puppy People
