Could someone sum up what's good to go (& install) here in one post.

It's all "good to go" IF you need it. If you don't use Midnight Commander, don't install the patch. Simple.

Hope that helps.

4. PETbegone will not run without certain configuration files and these were omitted from the release. Attached is a patch to replace those files. It should be unpacked to /root/.packages - check that a directory called unleashed exists after the unpacking.


I tried to use this file and petbegone to strip out a lot of packages and came up with a bunch of errors. Some packages were removed but some came up with an error such as "/root/.packages/unleashed/alsa-lib-1.0.12rc1.files does not exist.

This happened with a few games, some wireless apps, etc.

That will happen for any programs that were not directly installed through Unleashed - if the program was added as a patch or update, for example.

Subject description: ...puppy-tise your Open Office startup
 

Just playing around and thought I'd create a Puppy-specific bootsplash for Open Office ... just to add to the "complete" look-and-feel of Puppy.

Enjoy!

That's all we do, is it? Right click, and save as Add to /usr/local/apps/OpenOffice/program as intro.bmp ??

Sounds too simple.

I wonder if any other applications do that too...

That's all there is to it. Cool Remember, Open Office is an open source project, not a M$ product! Razz

I found the .bmp here
/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program

changing it for the intro.png meant I now have no logo
OO is not loading it . . .

perhaps you should have called it .bmp in the filename?

Subject description: repository for program startup splash screens
 

I've started checking what apps have a splash screen that is configurable. Naturally I made a start withh OOo v2 (thanks Whodo for the idea).

Here are the OOo v2 ones I could find...
http://micro-hard.homelinux.net/OOo2_splash/

I located the only OOo 1.1 I still have in captivity...
http://micro-hard.homelinux.net/OOo1_splash/

Sun's Java Desktop System has Sun's version, Star Office...
http://micro-hard.homelinux.net/staroffice7_splash/

Note: These are all bitmaps (.bmp) to avoid any need to convert the file format Smile

If anyone knows of any other apps with editable splashes, please PM me or even post it here, and I'll put them online. If there are many, it might be an idea to put them all in a splash directory on the root, for example micro-hard.homelinux.net/splash/OOo2/

Lobster I created from your gorgeous design a smaller .bmp that is the same size as the others and called it intro2
