Hi.

Booted into upupbb 18.05.

Screenshot: wallpaper changed by N.E.M.E.S.I.S. at boot

I had to install (luckily I could download from my own version of tahr):

libpipeline1_1.5.0-1_i386.deb
usb-modeswitch_2.5.2+repack0-2ubuntu1_i386.deb
usb-modeswitch-data_20170806-2_all.deb


to be able to connect to the web via my gprs usb modem.

Luckily rerwins's PGPRS Connect package was installed by default.

Though, doesn't make sense to have it installed without the usb-modeswitch components - not meant to be offended. Smile

I'd noticed this issue also in Xenial Pups, and Artful Pup. So, couldn't we just return to install usb-modeswitch plus rerwins's PGPRS Connect package by default at built (WoofCE?) ?

What's somehow funny is that the screen size is already set to 2560x1024 (both monitors acting as one screen), though both monitors are handled as two different desktops. So the desktop is switching when moving a window to another monitor. How can I change this?

Running 18.05 on a dell laptop....booting form DVD with ext2 save file located on HD.

18.05 will create a save file...but does not recognize either a save file created by itself or one created by 18.04

18.04 creates and recognizes save file with no problems.

running 18.04 from a live DVD on a Dell Laptop with an ext2 save file on the HD Tried to install seamonkey and receive this error message:

Code:

06:13:27 ~ > seamonkey
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /opt/seamonkey/libmozgtk.so:
libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.


Same problem with thunderbird

Code:

thunderbird
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /opt/thunderbird/libmozgtk.so:

Hi tichost !

Could not get Thunderbird running .

# thunderbird
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /mnt/sda7/thunderbird/libmozgtk.so:
libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

So i installed libbgtk-3 with PPM --------now it works .

So i asked PeeBee ........Should`nt libgtk-3 better be installed by default ....?

Regards !

Errrrr - basic libgtk-3 has been in the build for some time:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=987823#987823

Where are you getting Thunderbird from? If PPM then it pulls in all sorts of un-needed dependencies such as Wayland.....if it can't find libgtk-3 then this is likely to be a path problem....

I suggest to use the Slackware Current build:
http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-current/slackware/xap/mozilla-thunderbird-52.7.0-i586-2.txz

which runs without any additional dependencies.

I'm not aware of any differences between 18.04 and 18.05 in this respect.
I never boot off DVD so have difficulty testing this report.....
All I can suggest is to add a psavedir= to the boot params (I think you type F2 during boot to do this....but someone will no doubt correct)

If anyone who does boot from DVD can test that would be appreciated.

Not true - I've tested - it runs fine.

Searching the main .sfs doesn't find libpipeline. Also the usb-modeswitch installed is different to the one I downloaded and installed. Bionic recognizes my gprs usb modem only after installing the packages I mentioned. So, there's something wrong with the default installed packages, as those installed by default is 3 files (two of them are scripts). Those I downloaded and installed is 2 files (binary, its icon looks like a library).

Who am I to argue...especially since another person experienced the same problem and cured it the same way. Perhaps it works in 18.05...but with the save file issue that''s a problem.

Other than that, the distro seems nice.

Fresh boot of 18.05 .iso with no save
Didn't try Thunderbird, but official builds of Seamonkey 2.49.3 and Firefox-ESR 52.7.4 both ran fine. This would suggest that the included libgtk-3 is OK since both of these packages do require it.

Looking in /usr/share/applications there are a few icon paths that need tidying including pupX which has no menu icon at all. Maybe use /usr/share/pixmaps/puppy/screen_resolution.svg for pupX. Transmission is not showing the usual one.

CUPS-PDF did not want to print the test page for some reason ("Invalid Filename"), but it did print a browser page when I tried that.

libpipeline is going into the devx in the current build - I'll change it for delta #1.....
