Well nothing happened when I clicked the lightbulb, until I place the code into the above file.

Subject description: bugs in keyboard setting
 

I was trying to set QWERTY keyboard extended with backslash in Czech keyboard (which is default as QWERTZ) . QWERTY is more practical - it is more "international" and I use it for decades. I was successful only after several attempts but after it the part of keyboard with arrows, Page Up, Page Down, Del, End, Home and Insert, became dead. This problem is present in more linux distributions (but I do not remember them - I think also in Slacko).

There is possible to use translator in Google. There is also pronunciation of the words, incorporated in it, after clicking the icon for speaker (sound). There are differences in different linux distributions. In some, there is no icon, in others, there is dead icon, in some, the icon is normally functional like in Windows. In ArtfulPup, after the clicking the icon, the funny sound is expressed. The pronunciation is important for non native English speakers like me.

Anyway, the ArtfulPup seems to be fast in old machine and really good for everyday job.
Thank you for this hard work.

Functions arrows bugs : it was in Upup and Wary 511 .
Bug is back ?
"keyboard with arrows, Page Up, Page Down, Del, End, Home and Insert, became dead."
I fully agree on listening translations. We become used to written English but not to Pronunciation. To practice the better is to speak with English people. Not easy sometimes.
Personnally i write messages in French, and it's a friend of mine who translate them.. he says Google translator is bad for learning.

hi peebee,

i have an old thinkpad r51 that won't boot PAE kernels.
however new kernels have the forcepae option and adding
Code:
-- forcepae
to kernel line gets it to boot. (note there's a space after -- )

maybe add a note on the first page, for people with old clunkers

python3 applications aren't running as there's a missing symlink
Code:
ln -s /usr/bin/python3.6 /usr/bin/python3


a fix for this is to add to /usr/local/petget/hacks-postinstall.sh
Code:
python3.6-minimal_*)
 if [ -f /usr/bin/python3.6 ];then
  ln -s /usr/bin/python3.6 /usr/bin/python3
 fi
;;


or just stick the symlink in the build

PostPosted: Tue 31 Oct 2017, 14:04    Post subject: Palemoon  

Using Palemoon, the Open Containing Folder option
after a download asks for a program.
This does not happen in Puppies where Palemoon
is the default browser,
and happens in many new Puppies (stretch, etc...)
where Palemoon is not.
Could there be a symlink missing?
Thanks!

More detail please...

- how did you install Palemoon? where did you obtain it from?
- what 'program' is requested?

hi peebee,
/usr/share/applications/defaults.list might need this adding to it
Code:
inode/directory=ROX-Filer-file-manager.desktop

or preferably, if it works
Code:
inode/directory=/usr/local/bin/defaultfilemanager

I've used Palemoon from extracted from tar.bz
and also the sfs, same result.

Choosing /usr/local/bin/defaultfilemanager when prompted
by Palemoon works well,
the setting can even be saved.

Modifying the defaults.list is fruitless
as far as i can tell.
