Please add the command "Move to trash" or "Send to trash" to the ROX context menu when a file is right-clicked.


Further, adding "Shred" (available in "coreutils") to the ROX context menu would be nice too, providing a quick way to securely erase sensitive data.

Subject description: gui to adjust frequencies
 

I just installed the alsa streamtuner and am having trouble installing the eq from sourceforge. Alsaplayer sounds great but I would like to play with the frequencies.

Would be really cool if ttuuxxx would make a pet. Please Santa Smile

......have you tried 2.14X
It has a tweaked verson of BMP with LadSpa
click plugins, effects and then enable it and select which ones you like, I'm sure it will sound better than windows, you just have to set it first to the way you like it.

PostPosted: Wed 06 Jan 2010, 10:13    Post subject: wish for live CD to select video resolution automatically  

Something I love about computers is that they can do many operations per second. They can do automatic things. Total Newby here wishing that the live CD would pick a graphics resolution for me. Any resolution will do as long as I can see it. It could be changed from within puppy once the first boot completed. Might puppy ask "push any key if you can see this, or how about this?"

Think your grandpa or granny with a brain injury having a go at loading puppy after the third glass of rum, while minding a toddler and you start to get an idea of what it is like for the newby. Puppy is like an erector set, but my$oft is like star wars lego - it can only ever be used to make star wars lego stuff and if you get it wrong, you can't build anything. I like Idiot proof and I am sorry if that clashes with the smallness ideal.

I noticed that the file management in puppy is tend to be difficult for the newbies. To solve that problem I set suggestions on the improvement of rox-filer. Check out this topic http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=50911

Back to Puppy again...

Damn lucid ubuntu pissed me off ...It made it impossible to log in as root in GUI..

The old tricks that were enabling one to log in as root from Karmic are not working anymore..

Right...

What`s the deal with the new installer tingy and the grub4dos in the latest puppy image??

It will not allow me to make a full hard disk install on a ext4 partition

I never had this problem before with the previous images of 431...when trying to do a full install on a harddisk


So i guess high on my wish list would be to make that tingy accept an ext4 partition

PS: Please include the iputils package in the future release?? I know for sure that some of us are using it...
Of course if i am on Woof Alpha 9 i can just install it...but the regular guys...

Cheers

Hi Gorilla

Away for a month and you've forgotten this?

http://www.wellminded.com/puppy/pupsearch.html

'ext4 4.3.1' brings up this as first thread

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy//viewtopic.php?t=51205&sid=83cd632c505aa49b837f3aea2041ad2b

see Barry's fixed init note

and this, which is 4.3.2 experimental, fixed to work on ext4

Sorry bruv...

The few Gorilla neurons left where completely busy ranting about damn ubuntu Lucid linx bollocks...

Man ,that pissed me right effin` off..

Put it this way, even windooze allows you root login in GUI...
This Ubuntu is gonna get worst that Microshaft...
You know they really did a good job Evil or Very Mad

No more gdmsetup... No more passwd root ...

NO /etc/gdm/gdm.conf file.

AllowRoot=True

basically all the old tricks were not working anymore..
I mean ,what`s the use of having an operating system if you can not have full access and all that??

Rant over...

Cheers...


PS:Does this means what i believe it mean ??

Allow login as root over ssh session??

Do i need to disable it...Enhance the security and all that??

Sorry, guy

I know sweet FA about *buntu, and intend it to stay that way Wink

As you say, too much like microshaft......

Have you tried PCLOS for SSH as root, .....if you can't use Puppy?

Doesn't the "#" infront of it mean it's disabled already?

It's commented out, but often config files use the commented out entries to show what the default settings are. So it would be a good idea to explicitly enable the option and then set it to "no".

Of course, that file is only relevant if you have sshd running. If you don't intend to ssh into that machine, disable sshd (or even uninstall it). You could still use the machine to ssh into other machines even if you disable sshd. The sshd program is only what allows other people to ssh into your machine.

How you disable sshd depends. In Puppy, it would normally have s script in /etc/init.d/ that you could remove or make non-executable, but it might be started from /etc/rc.d/rc.local instead.

Thanks for the clarification Pizzasgood. I've never used ssh much anyway, that's good to know.
