Macpup 4.1.1

A simple remaster of Puppy 4.1.1 Retro to make it look attractive.

Only the appearance of Puppy 4.1.1 Retro has been changed. Features and functionality should be the same. I really wanted to change the icons to something more unique. But as I did not get much time, decided to use the icons that I got from the net.

Thanks a lot to Barry and everyone involved in creating Puppy 4.1.1 Retro.

Thanks to Caneri for the server space in Puppylinux.ca.

Very nice, but how come the min/max/shutdown boxes are on the right instead of the left?

You should be able to choose between right and left. Check the settings/themes on the menu.

Right you are. In the "Default" theme the boxes are on the right. In the "Brushed Metal" Theme they're on the left. I'm mortified.

Subject description: Not with Seamonkey
 

One more thing, if I may. I can't figure out how to stop Seamonkey from starting on bootup. I tried looking in the Startup directory and the rc.d directory, but I can't find where you clever people put this executable.

You can find the line in /root/.xinitrc and delete the line that has "defaultbrowser"

johnnyboy,

use the option
acpi=force
if you use grub, add it to the line that loads the kernel.

If you boot from CD, type at the boot-screen:
puppy acpi=force

If it does not work, try:
acpi=off

Mark

Cool Just as I was being tempted to download Slothful Sabayon or some other also ran live CD, I thought it might be worth trying some recent frisky puplets)

Downloaded the Firefox version of Macpup (I still think it should be called Ibone) - Pritish your history details are included in FireFox - be careful - nothing compromising Smile

Macpup has Pizzasgood bootup menu - which is very professional looking. Liked that.

It also includes Lit2 the amazing 4.xx series fav series software installer from the worlds lowliest developer (me)
I will have to upgrade that soon . . .

It also resurrected a USB mouse (Hosanna)
Well eh . . . not quite sure . . . that is true. Rolling Eyes

I think whilst creating TmxxineDF I may have corrupted the driver, threw the mouse away and just on a whim rescued it from the bin (couldn't find the undelete option on a real bin) Anyway it works. Embarassed Must be more careful.

Will use macpup rest of day at least (if possible) to see how I get on . . .

I downloaded and booted macpup with a frugal install yesterday.
Its very nice, polished and solid!
Unfortunately as everything is a little backwards and upside down compared to the usual puppy experience, it gave me a bit of a headache - but that is my problem, not macpup.

The only thing that didn't work - I installed the new Pwidgets and it doesn't display properly. Some windows were overlapping and were also out of alignment. But again, thats not macpups fault.

Thanks for a great puplet.

EDIT - pwidgets now works perfectly !? I'm also liking macpup a lot, its a refreshing change.

Not really a bug report as it effects nearly all versions of puppy on an AMD Geode system. On these systems with wbar installed (or many compositing desktop apps) it shows a black box using Xvesa.

This is easily fixed on Geode systems using the xorg driver from this thread

ps I kinda liked the 4.0 icons better

@Lobster:
Thanks for trying Macpup. I really loved the idea of Lit2 and have been wanting to include this in the next Macpup.

@headfound:
I have never tried Pwidgets. I just noticed the thread yesterday. Thanks for trying Macpup.

@technosaurus:
Thanks for trying Macpup. Yeah, I have received few communications that the Macpup 4.00 icons were better. Even the bar background made a lot of difference. Also, thanks for posting the fix about the xorg driver.
