Hi, Barry.

I just read your blurb about my MRUF-lst history script .

Thank you very much for including it in Quirky "xerus" for testing.

It's come a long way, but I'm sure it can use more testing -- and no doubt
more "sanding of the remaining rough spots!"

As well, developers have used all sorts of ways to store the history of
their apps, so development of this MRUF script is going to present
constant challenges as the history of these apps are added.

Also, I designed it to have room in it for further localization, in Spanish,
German, etc. If anybody is interested, PM me? TIA.

BFN.

barry i'm getting a 403 forbidden trying to open/access either of the htm files in your xerux-8.3 directory.. Maybe i'm too early but I was about to play with 8.2.2 when I saw this become visable.

I'm having fun using the isobooter package and .iso's. Well worth playing with.

@BarryK:

Short test report --

I installed Quirky-8.2.2 to a 16 Gb "Kingston Data Traveler 50" thumb
drive having potential for USB 3.1, 3.0, and 2.0.

No problem booting into it on this old HP Compaq 6715b, which isn't
equipped with UEFI.

After initial configuration and reboot, Quirky developed the sdb2 partition
to occupy the remaining space on the thumbdrive, as you mentioned.

Also, SeaMonkey is not sluggish on this fast thumb drive. (I was using a
cheap Lexar 8Gb before.)

However, there appears to be a bug if choosing the "modesetting" driver
for Xorg. In this mode, I found that no icons were displayed on the
desktop, only the titles.

On initial boot, they showed fine, but I ticked the xorgwizard square
because I wanted to use my larger, 1920x1080, screen, instead of the
notebook's 1280x800 screen. I shouldn't have ticked that box!

Upon reboot, at the xorgwizard CLI panel, the ati driver seemed not to be
able to kick in, even after I reset the choice to "none", which should have
rebuilt xorg.conf. I had to resort to "modesetting".

IHTH.

I just now looked at them on ibiblio, no problem. Anyone else got this problem?

Not getting much success with video for 8.3 on decent modern HW. CTRL-BKSPCE-DEL not reliably functioning but can get there with one of the menu options. No satisfactory resolutions working with any settings, drivers, w.h.y. This is unusual for all other distros, Puppy or other on this system. Probably not a good idea to set default resolutions so high (19..x...)?
Far too many options trying to cater for too many possibilities/requests. Surely this is/was not what the mutt is/was all about? K.I.S.S. still pertains even for ground-breaking and experimental stuff? Disappointing so far. A 32bit version would be more valuable as it can be tested and run on a wider range of kit.

Hi Sage.

The KISS principle? The simplicity of anything depends on where
you're starting from, IMO.

The Quirky concept is different from the Puppy concept. It looks like a
Puppy, but it isn't.

I was taken aback, too, during the first few days. Once you accept
Quirky's difference, it gets easier. You have to "live with it" (so to speak)
for a few days, and then it becomes familiar.

IHTH.

And it runs nicely on my wacom system except for the Wacom Settings Utility (missing naturally) and needed to set the pen accuracy and extra buttons on the pen and drawing 'tablet'. I'm trying to get one up for me and you as the current one was created and last modified some 7 years ago so the source code has just about dissapeared. Replacement is suppose to use xsetwacom which is installed, but it doesn't return the data it should so something has come admiss. Maybe it's time I learn't dialog? and built a frontend myself.

Came across an online radio streamer at https://github.com/lubosz/radiotray which may be worth adding next time, small and low cpu powered and extremely easy to add new stations on the fly.

Only problem found with it so far is that src2pkg for some reason. I've left a message on the thread asking amigo's help. I find it too usefull to loose if I can help it.


Oh, and everyone, please remember that Quirky was setup and still is (I think) for playing with, not just the standard 'this is how it is to be' stuff!

regards to all

Well, continue grumbling to your heart's content, then. Laughing

Hi Musher,

Downloaded your urxvt-9.2 for Quirky (thank you Wink), and I cannot remember how to get the fading/transparency to work. I know its probably something simple, but right now I am too stupid to figure it out and/or remember it, lol. As a side note, I do have "qiv" installed, with your modifications inserted into "xinitrc", and thus my conky looks absolutely beautiful & transparent Smile . But how do I get your urxvt to do the same thing with its fading and transparency capacities? Dar# it!, I did it before in our Dpup-Stretches we both made, but now I cannot remember. Getting old Sad

PostPosted: Sat 29 Jul 2017, 12:48    Post subject: pEqualizer is still faulty  

When pEqualizer is launched, faders in the "Flat" position
are all down at the bottom.
They should be at 65.
Can someone do a permanent fix for this problem.
Thanks.
