RC2 delta from RC1

md5= c2440c83ca6f134300910fc7ae99d439 lxpupsc64-18.02RC2.iso

Known problems still in RC2:
- PPM repos need tidying
- Gnumeric/Goffice has crash bug when doing 'Find&Replace' (haven't been able to identify a 64-bit version of GTK2 Goffice without this bug...) (also present in Slacko64 and Xenial64 so maybe this will never go away....)

Options are back - but not desktop-drive-icons as there is no 64-bit .pet available (but you could select 'Show connected volumes on the desktop' in Desktop Preferences).

chromium64_64.0.3282.140+pepper_28.0.0.161_lx_spot.sfs works fine as replacement (rename as adrv) for light.

RC1 updated to RC2. Options noted, thanks. I already had installed the lxrightclicks pet and modified 'permanently remove' so I didn't at update. For now, showing connected volumes on the desktop as you suggested and I am using pcmanfm instead of pmount as the 'handler' when a removable data drive is plugged in. I can then mount and unmount from there and the icon on the desktop is an extra flag that something is still mounted if I have closed pcmanfm. Saves a step on something I do a lot since I've gone samba-less.

HP4500 networked printer installed reasonably smoothly. I first used the hplip from the repo and then redid it with a modified (moved libfiles from /usr/lib to /usr/lib64 and added an older libjpeg it just had to have) 64 bit hplip made for Tahrpup64. It isn't hplip-lite but is <1Mb as opposed to the 15Mb hplip from the repositories. Both worked, it's the same 32bit to 64bit waltz.

Your run-as-spot chromium runs well and is quite a bit more stable than the Slimjet 18 run-as-spot I'm running at this time. The Slimjet sets up, runs and browses well and I prefer the layout, but as of yet it will not see the system printer (may need avahi) and closes/crashes when you try to save an image or page while downloads are excellent. That may well be a spot thing but if so it should nag, not crash. chromium is fine on all those counts.

Lots of squashing/unsquashing, PPM, deb &rpm installing and uninstalling, file and symlink editing/shuffling. Just general experimentation. Still haven't broken it yet though I always have a savefile and a spare browser profile up my sleeve. Haven't needed the savefile but I've zonked a couple of Slimjet profiles along the way.

Thanks,

Update: Got the printing sorted in Slimjet by not selecting 'print using system dialog' in settings (I have always used that). The printer then is accessible. Screensaver now working. I hadn't set it up or disabled it and it just 'saved' and recovered on touchpad swipe.

I have found that libgoffice-0.8.so.8.0.17 extracted from
http://ftp.br.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/goffice-0.8/libgoffice-0.8-8_0.8.17-7_amd64.deb
fixes the gnumeric "find and replace" crash bug - will be in RC4

I gave RC4 a try, PPM will download an application but it doesn't include the dependencies of the application, at least I couldn't get it to work.

I updated PPM, exited it, and then restarted.

Thanks.

Couldn't generate the new iso, md5 doesn't match.

# md5sum lxpupsc64-18.02RC1.iso___lxpupsc64-18.02RC5.iso.delta
ae6aec19a7382e24957ca94620b49f97 lxpupsc64-18.02RC1.iso___lxpupsc64-18.02RC5.iso.delta
#

EDIT: Not sure what I did wrong but I have the new RC5 iso now,
I will test it shortly,
Thanks.

The md5 you have is that of the .delta - NOT the .iso....and is correct for the .delta as confirmed on SF.

The .iso md5 after generation is addc246ee14b7b3c7f15346f4c303306

Cheers!

I installed RC5 to a 32gb flash drive:

PPM downloads dependencies now but it has problems, in the end I was
able to install kpat Smile

Thanks.

EDIT: it's been running for about 5 1/2 hours now.
It's working well.

Seamonkey 2.48 gtk2 fonts rough, despite pupcontrol .fonts.conf changes, and userChrome.css tweaks. Tried several fonts.
Switched to Seamonkey 2.49 - required gtk3 & at-spi2-core & at-spi2-atk packages - very good.
ALSO, is full install still strongly discouraged?

Thanks Mike. Save file option never impressed me (I guess it does make backup simpler), but save folder does. First used that last year, but was interested in current recommendation.

Yes. Gyro's development of a SaveFolder was a fine innovation providing newer Puppies with almost all the advantages of a Full Install, and almost all the advantages of a SaveFile without the occasional inconvenience of having to resize. But since I don't save datafiles within a SaveFile and primarily expand the OOTB capabilities of an OS with SFSes, AppImages, and applications which can be run from external folders my SaveFiles rarely exceed 2 Gbs, So, I still prefer SaveFiles.

I (lazily) swapped out the 18.02 zdrive, initrd.gz & vmlinuz; updated DISTRO_SPECS in my main .sfs & all's good! Should be a flagship pup.
