Subject description: 3.xx series apps and utilities added
 

Download Mirror (thanks to Eric)

http://www.puppylinux.ca/ttuuxxx/ecopup/puppy-214-remaster.iso

Im glad to announce we have our first actual development! This is in the form of a revised 2.14r ISO with the following enhancements

Pbackup updated from 3.0 to 3.03
Pfind updated from 2.2 to 3.3
Removed Dillo and replace with skipstone as default html viewer
Installed ePDFview as default PDF viewer, Left Ghost view as a backup.
Installed Pburn 0.9.3
Installed Pnethood for easy Windows shares

Much appreciation to Ttuxxx for starting us down the development path with these additions. I have given it a quick test and can find no problems, a more thorough test would be appreciated before we progress.

How do we progress from here

The project has been organised into separate features. Each feature can be added separately. "Talking Stick" (where each person takes the stick to add their piece to the conversation) would have been a good analogy. I suggest that each individual module developer take the "Talking stick", and book out by placing a post in a main Development thread. This way we dont end up having additions made to two versions of the thread at the same time, that will have to be merged.

Many thanks to everyone for their participation so far.

Strictly in the interest of not wanting your little project to look foolish, you might want to run your topic through a spell checker. It's a little thing, but if you want to be taken seriously, such little things matter.

This is good news.

About spelling = Phoenix (copy and paste please). Well, maybe simplify it to PHIX to avoid problems. Smile

Thanks Roberts, thanks Ttuxxx, thanks guys Smile

Anyone able to mirror / Bittorrent?

I am using Pwget in Dingo Alpha 6 to download
That can be included in Phoenix?
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=167340#167340
Is there other Dingo Code that would be useful?

the Bug page is very simple to modify (needs work)
as we will be supporting two Community editions
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/TalkingStickBugs

Robert what do you feel are the priorities for the first alpha release?
How soon might that be? Smile

as spelling goes, really does it matter in a forum? It does matter in the operating system, and some browsers like Opera, Seamonkey don't even have a default checker database its optional. Thats another reason why i like Firefox, sure its spelling checker isn't as good as Google but better than having nothing. Funny even Abiword you have to download a plugin for spelling, and its not even that large something around 500kb extracted, well that was in the 2.17 which i just finished messing around with. Some words like "distro" aren't in Firefox's spell checker. Kind of like windows office 2003 pro, that stupid dictionary doesn't have "Linux" in it. Maybe that was on purpose from Microsoft playing a joke.

Ok what would you like to see in the next release? I have a few idea's butttt I don't want to be the only contributor, so I'll hold back a bit:)

A working geany text editor please Smile
I am in the base now . . .

I was adding the below points in Geany
I clicked on the Geany window and Geany just dissapeared - gone
Luckily the text was in the 'G' clipboard - so I suspect the clipboard to be the source of the trouble . . . .

I believe Barry was experiencing probs and dropped the clipboard . . .
Can we fix it? Yes we can! (Lob the Builder!)

    can someone improve the log in html?
    file:///usr/share/doc/welcome1stboot.htm
    Can we have a Geany editor icon on the desktop?
    GTK theme selector (from Mu) excellent)
    Hey - Phoenix wallpaper please . . .
    Interesting to see how people get on with the torrent creator . . .


More testers required and a working text editor is most important
Thanks Ttuxxx and everyone involved
Really very exciting to see your hard work on this Very Happy

Hi
i'll fix the Geany editor icon on the desktop
and install the GTK theme selector (I was going to do this for the first release but i didn't know if i was over doing it Smile
if you can give me some clue about what you wanted for the welcome1stboot.htm I could do that also, and any wallpapers you wanted or i could quickly make 1.
I have 2hrs so i'll get started.

It is already in there - I was commenting how good it was . . . Smile

Quote:

I suggest you use a Phoenix logo
and add any comments about what you wish testing

a link to a relevant wiki page
and forum thread

I think Barrys original goals that Robert has adopted
should also be included:

Puppy's goals

* Easily install to USB, Zip or hard drive media.
* Booting from CD (or DVD), the CD drive is then free for other purposes.
* Booting from CD (or DVD), save everything back to the CD.
* Booting from USB Flash drive, minimise writes to extend the life indefinitely.
* Extremely friendly for Linux newbies.
* Boot up and run extraordinarily fast.
* Have all the applications needed for daily use.
* Will just work, no hassles.
* Will breathe new life into old PCs
* Load and run totally in RAM for diskless thin stations

If you have time by all means do one
I will try doing one in Phoenix Base . . .
Any more designers out there?

thanks Eric Smile

OK here is a wallpaper (did it in Phoenix Inkscape Lite)

http://img148.imageshack.us/img148/4446/p1lp4.png

You can see it here but it needs a thumbnail
(there is some way of doing that in the wiki) - if anyone is up for it?

Re: spelling, I guess it matters, as it shows our respect and consideration of readers. So would Robert (original poster) or a moderator please correct the title of this topic?

Subject description: Phoenix
 

I am just throwing more wood on the fire, In my 1922 very large dictionary you can spell it
Phoenix and also Phenix . it is a bird that flies around every 500 years, burns it,s "butt" and is renewed, just like Puppy, every 500 hours it is renewed.

You do not have to be an Eccentric to love Puppy but it helps.
