No one should be forced into buying a multi-core 64-bit computer when the one they
have is still working nicely. We adapt the software to what people have. We do not
force people to have the hardware that cutting-edge developers want people to have.


Well said!

I do not remember where I found the background. It was in a Google search. I will post a link if I come across it again.

Two things I like about this distro:

- My weak wifi signal cuts out a lot as my laptop is quite far from the source. In this puppy the "connected" icon on the bottom right updates right away when it drops so I know not to refresh a page when the icon (with two computers) has an X on them (in all other puppies I'm aware of, the taskbar icon still shows as connected so I have no indication of when it cuts out).

- When I put a song on loop on DeadBeef, the looping is flawless, there is no "silent pause" like in GNOME-Mplayer (about 0.5 seconds) and pMusic (about 5 seconds). I have made some mp3s that at the end flows back into the beginning when looped and DeadBeef is the only one I know that can loop it without having to "pause and think" between the transition (at default settings)

Question: Is there a screen recorder included in this puppy? In Slacko I used pavRecord, but only noticed audio recorder in menu.

I used Palemoon Updater to 27.5.1 and it worked, and changed the wallpaper so I could see the text under the icons (though it was not a big deal as I know what they are haha). I might boot into this OS as my main one on my Pentium M laptop for a while.

Hi Sailor Enceladus.

Many thanks for the positive report.

As I said, I just "whipped up" this xenialPup. My only merit is providing a pae 4.1
kernel for it. All thanks for the compiling of that kernel go to stemsee; all thanks for
wifi performance and choice of audio apps go to 666philb and the woof-CE team.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As to a screen recorder, I won't suggest anything, because I don't know the
subject and I've never used one. I'm sure there's info about it on this forum and
on the Internet.

For starters, maybe flip through the pages of 666philb's two threads for his
xenialPup:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=899178&sort=lastpost&search_id=1355229070#899178
and
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=910078&sort=lastpost&search_id=1355229070#910078

Good luck.

Hello all.

Please find at the above location the echinus window manager compiled from
the git repo version (2017-10-27), on and for this xenial32.

This package is different from the previous echinus packages I have compiled in
that it contains a theme chooser for echinus. Echinus now has 38 themes
to choose from.

What you do is you open a terminal in /root/.echinus/ and then you type
Code:
./ChooseTheme.sh
Then you type the name of the theme,
Asphalt-01 (a greyish theme) or
WaterFall-02 (a theme with white and blue) or
any theme that strikes your fancy.
(I may make a GUI out of this script some day! But for the time being, it does
the job!)

If you're interested, I've included a little folder with the pictures and sources I got
the ideas for these themes from. For more info about these echinus themes, please
see here : http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=967628&sort=lastpost#967628

To also get the menu working, you'll need these execs.

You can edit file ~/.echinus/echinusrc to your liking, but please read the docs first.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
Also at the above location is the bmpanel2 traybar and panel, again compiled
on this Pup. It contains 50 bmpanel2 themes. Again, you can adapt files
~/.config/bmpanel2/bmpanel2rc and
/usr/share/bmpanel2/themes/[name of theme]/theme
to your taste, but please read the docs first.

~~~~~~~~~~~

To get them echinus and bmpanel2 working together, you will need to install this
small Startup script: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=112497

Please see my reply to forum member westwest a couple of posts down for an
explanation of how this Startup script works.

~~~~~~~~~~~

With both installed in this xenialPup32-k412, the result should look like the attached
screen shot.

Enjoy.

An advantage of Xenial is that Google maps' 3-D feature works, whereas it doesn't in Tahr.
However, I've not been able to run claws-mail; I think I got it from you, musher0?
I tried doing ln -s to some of the libraries in Tahr; so far no success.

It would be nice to do what I read a few times in this forum: somehow run the same programs from a few different Puppys.

Thanks a lot.

Hi Sheldon.

You're welcome.

You don't like Sylpheed, eh? (Sylpheed is the default mailer in this xenial32.)

Have you tried installing claws-mail from the PPM? It went fine on this box.

BFN.

Sylpheed is fine. But I've been using Claws in Tahr, and was hoping to use the same software in Xenial.
UPDATE: Ah, now it works; secret was to "Download all (packages and dependencies)".

Good. I will work on this some more.


Thanks again.

Hello all.

I just compiled a 2.14 version of the lightweight links browser on and for xenialPup32-7.0.6.

You can get it at:
http://augras.eu/puppy_linux/?dir=musher0/xenialPup-706-k41/Internet

Enjoy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
P.S. -- If you need this version of links2 for earlier Pups, OscarTalks has built versions
for the Precise, Slacko-5.7 and Wheezy Pups. You'll find those pet archives at :
http://smokey01.com/OscarTalks.

PostPosted: Tue 31 Oct 2017, 14:11    Post subject: Echinus  

Hi, i've attempted to install echinus on this Puppy.

Installed the echinus Pet compiled for it,
then the suggested necessary libs Pet,
then consolidated the three Pets for the taskbar/menu,
and installed that.

Echinus boots from the command line (startx echinus)
but no taskbar/menu,
although i can use ROX just fine.

Could there be detailed instructions to install echinus
on this otherwise faultless pup?

Thanks!

Hi westwest.

My bad... echinus has a simplistic task bar called ourico, but I opted to go with
bmpanel2 instead, which is a complete task-and-tray bar, with themes. I should have
included the following:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# ~/root/Startup/if-echinus.sh
####
WndwMgR="`cat /etc/windowmanager`"
if [ "$WndwMgR" = "echinus" ];then
   /usr/bin/bmpanel2 --theme=Light-T 2>/dev/null &
#   /opt/local/bin/horloge_brique.sh &
   /opt/local/bin/xload.sh &
   /root/.echinus/Combinaisons.sh &
# config-xClock.sh &
fi

rox ~/.config/autostart/*.desktop
if [ "$WndwMgR" != "jwm" ];then
   [ -f /usr/bin/xcompmgr ] && xcompmgr -C -l -20 -t 5 -c -r 5 &>/dev/null & # -F -f -n -o 90
fi
sleep 0.5s

This /root/Startup/if-echinus.sh script defines a different behavior when starting the
echinus or jwm window manager.

As you can see, if echinus is the WM, then we also run bmpanel2. I've commented
out the line for xclock ("horloge") in case you do not have it.

Please find attached a pet archive of it. Sorry for the delay. I had forum member
augras on PM directing me through the final stages of setting up the new repo for
my material.

Thanks for your understanding. Please let me know if this little script works as
expected on your set-up? TIA.

Finally, you can experiment with the bmpanel2 themes if you wish. The bmpanel2
themes are at /usr/share/bmpanel2/themes. There are 50 themes for bmpanel2 in
that directory.

To try them out, open a console and first type:
Code:
killall -q bmpanel2
if you have bmpanel2 runnning. Then, again in console, type, for example,
Code:
bmpanel2 --theme=Dark-T
or any other name of theme in the list at
/usr/share/bmpanel2/themes.

Once satisfied with your choice, open the if-echinus.sh script in your geany editor
and replace the Light-T theme with the one you prefer on the bmpanel2 line. (Don't
edit anything else on that line, please.)

Save the script, go back to the initial black console with Ctrl-Alt-BackSpace, and
restart echinus by typing
Code:
xwin echinus

IHTH.
~~~~~~~~~~~
P.S. There are more configurations you can do for bmpanel2:
1) you can juggle the order of some of the items in the bar (tasks, desks, tray,
font, launchpad) for a particular theme, by editing file:
/usr/share/bmpanel2/themes/Name_of_Theme/theme

2) you can specify the launchpad items you want by editing file
/root/.config/bmpanel2/bmpanel2rc.

In both cases, make sure to make a back-up first.

I'll also do a little tutorial on how to change echinus themes in a coming post.

@ all:

If you experience a total computer freeze trying to configure xlock in this xenialPup32
when clicking on the Xlock icon at bottom right of your screen*, then please install
the one attached. No backup is necessary since I have kept the original script under
a slightly different name.

Now to configure the key to get back to your desktop, you will have to open a
console and type:
Code:
xlock
You will be asked for a key twice (the same, obviously). And that's it.

It works well on my box, but any feedback appreciated.

BFN.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
* I suspect an incompatibility with the French localization package I installed,
because there are key stroke manipulations at the end of the original script.

However, this is the first time such a bug has appeared in Xlock, and I have been
using the French localization package on most of my Puppies for a long time
without this happening.

I am not going to throw blame. I will just suggest a replacement that works! Twisted Evil

Subject description: The Claws-mail-3.13.2 e-mailer for xenialPup-7
 

@forum member SheldonIsaac and others like him
who prefer the claws-mail app for e-mailing:

I've assembled from the ubuntu xenial repo an sfs and a pet archive (same product,
in two forms) of ALMOST the latest claws-mail, version 3.13.2. On the Claws-mail
site, you can see they are at version 3.15.

To be used in xenialPup, that Ubuntu package needed these additional libraries:
Quote:
libbluez-5.46-alt1.1.i586.rpm
libcompfaceg1_1.5.2-5_i386.deb
libetpan-1.6-7.fc24.i686.rpm
liblockfile-1.09-alt1.i586.rpm
libpilot-link-0.12.5-alt3.1.1.1.i586.rpm
libsasl2-3-2.1.26-alt7.i586.rpm
which, as you can see, had to be included from various repos.

The only other difference from the ubuntu package, aside from those add'l libraries,
is that the ubuntu < claws-mail.desktop > file had to be divided in four parts:
Quote:
claws-mail (general)
send-mail
compose-mail, and
get-mail
because Puppy does not understand the new *.desktop format with multiple entries.
The entries should show in the "Network" section of your menu.

The result is that xenialPup has a complete claws-mail package as of today.

I tested it a bit (I prefer webmail myself), and it seems to work fine. Please report
anything fishy and I'll try to correct it.

It's here:
http://augras.eu/puppy_linux/?dir=musher0/xenialPup-706-k41/Internet

Enjoy!

Hello again, Sheldon and all!

Puppy doing Ubunrtu one better? You bet! I prepared for you guys the
very latest version of Claws-mail, v. 3.15.1. (As of this writing.)

You'll find it in the same repo as indicated above, in pet and sfs archive
formats.

Claws-mail was compiled with only shared libs for its plugins. The other
libs included in the package are the same as for the earlier version,
except the libetpan library, v. 20 (again the latest as of this writing), has
been freshly compiled for this edition. (Claws-mail-3.13 had libetpan-17.)

Compiled on xenialPup-7, so should work on DPupStretch-7 also, since it
has a glibc one number higher (2.23) than the xenialPup-7 (2.22).

Edit: The above sentence is wrong, unfortunately. As can be read here
and from watchdog's post above it, the 3.15.1 package does not run on
DPupStretch-7. I agree with watchdog that Claws-mail-3.15.1 would have
to be recompiled for the DPupStretch-7.
However, if you don't need the
latest version, Claws-mail-3.13.2 (in sfs form) does run on that Pup.


These packages will not run on Puppies with lower-numbered glibc's.

If you choose to install the sfs package, only the main *.desktop file will
show in the menu, for some reason, while there should be four menu
entries for Claws-mail. Please unpack the small attached zip file in
/usr/share/applications to compensate, move the zip package out of the
way in safe storage, and recycle your menu.

The hashes for both packages are also attached.

I tested this Claws-mail v. 3.15.1 briefly on my xenialPup-7 box, and it
ran fine. Anything fishy, please report, I'll try to fix it. TIA.

Enjoy! TWYL.
