Can confirm this in the 32-bit version too. For reference this is where they were in Slacko 5.7:

- Leafpad: Document
- Sylpheed and Transmission: Internet

Another observation is that there's a line on the top of Multimedia and Business categories. Smile

Slacko 64bit

Keyboard setup as PC 102 generic

None of the keyboard warning lights work.

Num lock
Caps lock
etc...

In other versions of Puppy, with same setup, these lights do work.

PostPosted: Sat 03 Jun 2017, 01:56    Post subject: Slacko-6.9.9.5 test [Solved]
Subject description: Too much icon information
 

G'day norgo,

I have tried your slacko as a frugal manual install and almost everything is fine with my usual applications and operations.

But as you can see from the screenshot, the desktop drive icons have too much labelling so there is an overlap where there are two rows. The first row is also higher up the desktop which also affects some other packages (my pwidgets overlaps the icons at the right edge of the screen).

Where do I find how to have just one line under the drive icons - I prefer sda1, sda2 sda3 etc as I know the important partitions (my data).

I do not want two or more lines.

Thanks for posting the slacko,

David S.

P.S. I found the problem fix in Desktop>Puppy Desktop>Desktop Icons>Drives where un-buttoning the Show Labels for Each Partition leaves just the partition code. And lowering the Edge Gap runs them closer to the bottom of the screen.
So that's no problems with this slacko for me so far Very Happy .

@bigpup.. I took a look at this and came up with appropriate solutions (my comments in red)

Did not check the Slacko 32bit version, but I assume results would be the same.

Checked the offered help in all programs.
These programs had a help offered, but selecting help options offered no help documents.
Got error or nothing visible to see.

LibreOffice (all programs) # link /usr/local/bin/xdg-open to /usr/bin/
MtPaint # patch, reupload and build the handbook
System Profiler and Benchmark # doc>exe ###########################just effing remove hardinfo!
Xarchive # doc>exe (woof)
Pfind # help is in front of you! (may not be obviuos though.. ziggy?)
Notecase # doc>exe (woof)
Document Viewer # no bug in 32 or 64 that I can see..
Homebank # doc>exe (woof)
Sylpheed # doc>exe (woof)


Those should be self explnatory, directly from my notes. 'hardinfo' is a lost cause. The 'help' is totally broken even in the latest version at github. I will remove it. We have inxi and Roger's excellent PupSysInfo (which can create reports) as a good replacement. It will stay in the PPM for those who still require it.

As for mtpaint I'll patch it so that it is more obvious that you can get the help -aka 'mtpaint handbook' - from the PPM.. I'm not including 2MB of mtpaint help!!! (or patching with a web link).

Try this on CLI..
Code:
modprobe input-leds


It's a new thing since kernel 4.2.x (previously I only shipped up to 4.1.x). I have a fix pending.

Crashing intel graphics...

@gyro,norgo,sailor,Maurizio4Puppy (any one else)

What is an elegant solution for this issue?

Sure, I can find out if you have 'intel' graphics but it is not a 'one-size-fits-all' solution. (Hmm.. probably if we were relying on udev instead of 'xorgwizard-automatic' to set up X then we would be ok...).

Compiling a database of chips that work with the 'fix' will be very tedious and very 'hit and miss'.

I'm open to ideas... anyone? Maybe I should add a script to do this and issue instructions in the release notes to execute this script if you have problems with 'Intel HD Graphics'?

Maybe you affected guys should post some logs. (/var/log/Xorg0.log maybe).

I haven't tried this solution yet but will soon. It's interesting to know that this might solve it. Thanks norgo for posting the idea! I think I read somewhere that someone also said that using i915.modeset=0 helped. I'll be using my trusty Pentium M laptop more often again, which has this problem more frequently. Seems odd that it could be a gfx card problem when I don't get the issue in jwm905, I always wondered how to debug it so I'll see if anything interesting pops up in /var/log/Xorg0.log when it happens... thanks for that clue. Smile

davids45,

Quote:
Too much info on desktop drive icons.

Try this:
Puppy Event Manager->Desktop Icons

Checking "show labels for each partition"

If this is selected you will see more info under the drive icons.

So, if checked UN-check it.
Select "Refresh/Realign existing icons
Hit OK.

Xenialpup has the same problem.
I will post your fix in the Xenialpup topic.

RC is out!

See main post

------

There are 2 32 bit versions and 3 64 bit versions - all have their own theme - changeable of course.

There is a new var in woof that allows individual naming. The last three fields indicate KERNEL(-HIGHMEM)-BROWSER-OFFICE (Note - my convention only, the builder can choose to use the facility or not)

kernel is either 3.16, 4,4 or 4.9 (latest versions at upload)
browser is either FF (firefox) or PM (palemoon) - (latest versions at upload)
office is either LO (libreoffice) or ABI (abiword/gnumeric/goffice)
highmem is either 4G (sees only 4GB RAM) or PAE (potentilally 'sees' 64GB RAM) - applicable to 32 bit versions only

NB: ONE 32 bit iso does not have -uefi - this will not boot on UEFI machines unless you use legacy BIOS; the other 1 should (as long as the UEFI firmware is 64 bit Rolling Eyes). All 64 versions have UEFI boot enabled, with a fallback for legacy BIOS.

ALL browsers and office progs are sent to the A DRIVE. You can strip that out and install your own browser/office prog if you wish.
Of course you can change kernels (if you do a hdd or USB install) to any kernel you like - YMMV.

Slacko64 6.9.9.6 with 4.9.30 kernel
Frugal on USB flash

Computer specs:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6400 CPU @ 2.70GHz
GPU NVIDIA Corporation GM204 [GeForce GTX 970]
16GB RAM
UEFI bios

Using Grub4dos as bootloader

First bootup:
Booted to a black screen.
Had to hard shutdown.

Added "nouveau.modeset=0" to the kernel line of Grub4dos boot entry.

Next boot went to desktop with no problems.

Seems strange to me, that other versions of Puppy will boot to desktop, with no requirement for "nouveau.modeset=0" .

No icons on desktop.
Hidden Tray of icons, on left side of desktop, visible when mouse pointer is placed near left edge.

OK!

There is no icon for the trash.
Trash needs a desktop icon to work correctly.

Needed for drag and drop.
needed for icon right click menu that gives options for trash.

No trash in the menu.

Looked in Rox.
No trash in right click menu.

So, just how do you put something in trash?


The lock desktop icon missing.

Does this no longer apply?

From Puppy documentation on how Puppy works:
Quote:
About the Lock Icon.

The PuppyPin file allows for placing icons relative to the left edge. Since Puppy also wants to place some icons along the right edge, it needs to first find the screen width and then do a little arithmetic to determine what value to put in the PuppyPin file for those icons. This is why we have fixPuppyPin.
With no "lock" icon, fixPuppyPin will no longer move any icons.
