Thanks for prompt reply.

I just noticed that clicking on th initrd.xz does not auto edit it. Is there a script in jl64 to do that, if so what is it called so that i can associate it with initrd.

cheers

'openinitrd' is on the iso. Needs to be on a writeable linux medium (not vfat or ntfs) next to the initrd.xz. Opens init-tree right there. cd to init-tree and edit away. Repack script is just inside that directory once you're through. init-tree will then disappear in 8 seconds.

edit 08-24: uploaded new iso
    Just-Lighthouse64-700.lt.iso|2841bee13ca4f8436367498b6c71d0f9|438|

It contains another scrip - 'mkremasterdir' - which goes next to the downloaded iso just like 'openinitrd' and makes a directory ready for remastering a "mariner" like iso with whatever extra sfs files or edits you choose.

Basically, this iso is a bugfixed version of the last.

Hi Dry Falls

I am very happy with JL64-700.3 as an excellent alternative to Windows 10 and DpupWheezy.

However adding this from fatdog64 gives touchscreens right click menu and also adds pinch to zoom and two finger scrolling (in correct direction, opposite to touchpad) for browsers. The right click option works by 'selecting' dir or file by dragging a finger on screen over it, or touching object and holding while slightly moving finger in any direction then tap screen with another finger (while still holding prvious finger, er, still). By only touching object and tapping with second finger, a double action is carried out: the object is left clicked and right clicked simultaneously!

I didn't check if xvkbd was already installed before I added it! I will try to make it pop-up-able for openbox. I know how to do it for jwm!

These additions make jl64 completely useful on a keyboard/mouse less touch screen device = tablet or lenovo flex in touchscreen mode with keyboard folded under.

remasterpup2 gets confused when source is /initrd/mnt/dev_save/lh and destination is the same partition. it is stuck in a loop or is squashing everything on that partition! it seems hundreds of gigs of my files may have been removed, as i cannot find them, might end up in the sfs.

I should have just used simple remaster.

dry falls how do you remaster lh?

Hi Stemsee. Thanks for the above. I'll incorporate into the next release.

remasterpup2 creates or finds and builds from /mnt/home/JL64-livecdbuild (same as /initrd/mnt/dev_save if you have a save file). Unlike previous Lighthouse versions, JL64 symlinks the boot partition to /mnt/home whatever pupmode you're in. Remaster is not unattended, since you have to follow the prompts throughout, starting with the drive or partition used. The 'mkremasterdir' script on the iso merely makes the working directory in /mnt/home from the iso so must be placed next to it (the iso). The directions pop up, so please read them first. Lighthouse remaster by itself (menu|Setup|Remaster...) loads prompts all the way through. They're no good if you don't read them before clicking ok! I can find/make an instruction file and have it load before remaster starts if you like.

I think it is essential to give a warning or even hack the script to make it impossible to use the dev_save as destination. I rmember i did this before, but luckily the files were in a directory ... not this time!

I dded xvkbd to the wbar in the top right corner. I actually pointed t to a script called xvkbdconf with these contents.

Code:
#!/bin/sh
killall xvkbd
xvkbd -geometry 800x300+550+700 -no-keypad &


For a 1920x1080 display positioned bottom middle.

Here's a new profile sfs which has /opt/pets. xvkbd & xorg.d are combined in xvkbd-3.7-x86_64-1.pet. Also a gtk fix pet for xfce & fusion standalone.

I'll work on that remaster script. Sorry for your loss!

@StemSee and @Dry Falls, thanks for these EXCELLENT additions.

Testing planned on my "aged" HP Touch Laptop with these additions means that I can rotate the laptop into tablet mode for seminars and presentations.

Puppy Linux has been significantly expanded in this area; Thanks to @TaZoC you guys and @FD7+ developers in the touch area for this PUP distro.

Just makes Puppy SO VERY MODERN!

@DryFalls

The html info does not warn against the scenario I encountered!
Also the remaster script does not give an option to use tmpfs.
Although selecting main sfs has CD or DIRECTORY option in fact only the CD option is usable but the iso must be mounted before the script even starts.

I ended up editing the xvkbd.desktop file to exec xvkbdconf, and also use /usr/share/pixmaps/keyboard.png

I then created a top lxpanel with dynamic expansion and added xvkbd.desktop to that as a launcher, which will always be easily available een when apps consume the entire screen.

The option is 'ramfs', at the bottom of the list. I just did a remaster from a source directory NOT named 'JL64-livecdbuild' and picked ramfs. twenty sfs addons loaded and it made a 1.4 gig basefile, as was expected. The JL64-livecdbuild directory is placed in the save file (/) so I moved it. Added this proviso to the html file:
Quote:
Please pay strict attention to the dialog boxes as this script has the capability of eating up your entire hard drive! Should you wish to remaster JL64 using a directory (rather than from cd/dvd) other than '/mnt/home/JL64-livecdbuild' for source files, it must contain the initrd, kernel, basefile and grub or isolinux.cfg file but for a uefi bootable iso, it should also contain the bootloader files (isolinux.bin, efiboot.img, kernel.msg, sfs.msg, poweroff.com). Otherwise, right click on the newly made directory (JL64-livecdbuild --nb you may rename it) and select dir-to-iso to make a legacy bootable iso.

If you choose ramfs rather than the drive, make sure you have enough ram (runs about 1.5 G) or a swap partition. Instead of /mnt/home (or /initrd/mnt/dev_save), the JL64-livecdbuild directory will be at /. Move it out of the save file to limit size.
and fixed the link at the bottom

Thanks Stemsee. I wonder if you had any sfs files loaded. I will run through this again to be sure I didn't leave something important out of the base file. That's usually the culprit. It's pretty obvious you have plenty enough ram installed. Maybe simple remaster is the answer after-all!

Couldn't reproduce the problem. Did you change anything in the initrd? Kernel? Maybe recompile it.
