No wall paper appear on the screen after bootup plus the mouse cursor "X" not an arrow...I tried left click on the desktop Modules save Desktop does not work. I tried to change the wallpaper by Control Panel+Desktop Background Image and reboot..still no wallpaper.

I've got Puppy 1.01 on zip drive. The above problem happened after I tried to run the Zip Puppy from another computer. It works before that.

Deleting the following files from the /root/.etc folder will force puppy to ask for the hardware configuration again.
/root/.etc/keyboardtype
/root/.etc/keyboardmap
/root/.etc/mousedevice
/root/.etc/mousebuttons
/root/.etc/videomode

here are the commands:

Code:
rm /root/.etc/keyboardtype
rm /root/.etc/keyboardmap
rm /root/.etc/mousedevice
rm /root/.etc/mousebuttons
rm /root/.etc/videomode


Then restart puppy (or restart the window manager you are using)
