Too many clockskins and waaaaaaay toooooo big! I've got dejan555 working on a nice lean one that Flash can read.... It'll save 20k compressed easy.

Yeah, I do like my eye candy! Razz The clock_skins directory is only 140kb, even with 132kb of my fancier skins, so I need to get you guys to see if you can slim them down some. If worst comes to worst, I'll just leave all of them out except the default and offer the skins pack from the repo. Rolling Eyes

- Pwireless is missing
- Pstopwatch/Ptimer is missing

Pwireless 56kb duplicates other functionality but I will look into including it again if users request.
Pstopwatch/Ptimer 124kb removed when looking for space but happy to include again if we can trim the overall package significantly

zigbert wrote:
- 3 new clockskins double the size of Pwidgets. It is about 100kb bigger in this iso than the original Pwidget package.

Yes, my bad. I was going for WOW factor and the extra skins contribute significantly to the ISO falling over the 100Mb hurdle.

zigbert wrote:
- Default sidebar could be made smaller.

Happy for you or your guys to play with that. I wanted a sidebar that actually faded into the wallpaper (Vista-style) but didn't spend a lot of time in reducing its size. I'm sure your team of bit-misers will trim it nicely for me! Razz

zigbert wrote:
- Right alignment of desktop icons are still not correct
- Globicons missing MANY bindings to /root/my-application/bin. This is very clear when using left tray - add icon. All programs should have a link to a icon.
- Rox 'Icon grid' is defined to 'Fine'. It is hopeless to place an icon to a wanted location. 'Medium' is much better, and has been the default setting in Puppy.

Yep. I'm leaving these issues as late as possible to address, since I know where I'm going with the pinboard problem and other things were more pressing. Now would be a good time to look into the whole arrangement of PuppyPin and globicons though. Wink

Thanks, Sigmund.

It is not the "Icewm shutdown dialog" but is shared with both WM's in this release. That's a design feature.

Also a "design feature" ... check with your Pwidgets' "Fearless Leader" Sigmund for a solution. Wink

- The wallpaper setter is not the latest and conflicts with Pwidgets.
- The earth background could have been replaced with one looking ok also on a widescreen.

Yes, you mentioned about the wallpaper setter version in RC1 before and when I quoted the version I was using you said "forget it"? Confused Am I using the latest or is my version-0.5.1 an older version? If you have a later one, then I'd be happy to include it. Arrow The clashes appear to result from two applications looking in different locations for the background. Pwidgets uses /root/.config/wallpaper/bg_img while Rox Filer uses /root/Choices/ROX-background.jpg - I noticed the conflict after uploading RC2. Can this be standardised for Final?

I'd be happy to modify the Aurora-Australis wallpaper to suit widescreen as everything other than the earth itself is simply solid black fill - that makes it an easy thing to do without increasing the size of the image too much.

one of the images was not linked on the release notes htm

Yes, I saw that in testing on my machine. I just assumed it was pointing to a location on the web that wasn't available while I wasn't connected. I've downloaded the update for inclusion. Thanks, Ed.

Puppy 4.2rc2 has a problem with the intel ipw2200 wireless pci card - it will not recognize it. Md5sum is right. Dmesg shows kernel tainted.

Works great in 4.1.2

I have PM'd tempestuous to look into the inbuilt wireless driver issues. It would help if you PM'd him with your Dmesg output, too! In the meantime using the potential workaround from the RC1 thread is worth considering.

The kernel I'm using is the same one as 4.12, so there shouldn't be any difference for included drivers, but clearly there is. Your assistance in finding the source of the problem is appreciated. Thanks.

Did you boot clean with pfix=ram? The fixmenus script has been updated to improve this issue, and works fine in a clean install, so I don't know from where your issues may be arising.

Printing does work, as expected. Very Happy Also, you don't have to see a purple dialog window any more before the CUPS window opens up. Good. But . . . it's still not obvious how to set a printer as the default, and it should be. This is especially important with TextMaker (which I use) and any other app that wants to use the default printer. Printing did not work with TextMaker until I remembered how to set my printer as the default.

I'm sure ttuuxxx is following this thread and will look into your suggestion. I'm glad it works, though. Wink

I saved my PuppyPin file and copied it to /root/Choices/ROX-Filer before creating a new pup_save file. After rebooting, sure enough, the desktop icons I wanted were where I wanted them--but some I didn't want were there too, like "calc" and "chat." Can this be prevented from happening?

Back up globicons as well. It contains the definitions for the icons used by PuppyPin. I don't know how ROX uses them internally, but there is some correlation between them and how the icons appear on the pinboard.

What's going on here?!

Wish I knew, David. I've not seen that before EVER! Confused Seems you may have managed to copy a corrupt version of ROX into your pup_save file somehow and it's sitting in a layer above the inbuilt original. Delete your pup_save file and try again from a clean install.

Tried all the included wallpapers as well as my own standard background. All worked as expected, except that blend-paper almost completely hangs my (once modern) computer (550 MHz, 192 Mb RAM), on which Puppy normally runs lightning fast. See CPU and RAM usage in the attached images, blend-paper completely uses up my computers resources. Seeing Zigbert's comments above, I checked if any conflict with Pwidgets was causing this by disabling Pwidgets; still the same stalling result, so Pwidgets seems not to be the culprit. Also tried in IceWM; same results. All the other new mini-wallpapers work nicely though. One would have thought a 300x1 wallpaper would leave a small foot-print, but, alas.

Try opening the wallpaper in mtPaint and indexing it. When you attempt to save you'll be asked to change to RGB for the PNG format. That should create a new copy of the wallpaper in PNG format, overwriting and hopefully bypassing any corruption in the original. Then try setting it again to see if the problem has been resolved.

Yeah, you are right. I edited Embarassed (you best edit yours too.)

PostPosted: Sat 07 Mar 2009, 20:22    Post subject: CUPS setup -> 100% CPU  

After booting RC2 using pfix=ram and successfully bringing up the network, I proceeded to configure my network printer.

- start Htop (for this report)
- Menu/Setup/CUPS Printer Wizard
- CUPS page appears
- Click "Add Printer"
- Username/password dialog appears

Htop reports immediate jump to 100% CPU and indicates CUPS is pulling ~93%

- close CUPS dialog
- no change in CPU utilization
- use Htop to kill CUPS process
- CPU utilization drops to <10%
- attempt to re-run CUPS wizard
- "Page Load Error" appears indicating "Failed to connect..."

The above is repeatable.

Did you boot clean with pfix=ram?

Yes. I don't know why the long waits happened. Then, as you suggested, I got rid of my first RC2 pup_save and booted pfix=ram again. This time--guess what--no long waits. I don't know what made the difference, either!

I think not, for at least three reasons: (1) I booted pfix=ram so there was nowhere for a corrupt file to come from; (2) my previous pup_save file didn't contain a corrupt version of ROX; (3) I looked in /usr/local/bin and there was no ROX listed at all; there was neither a corrupt nor an incorrupt version.

Done. No problem now. But I wish I knew what caused the problem before, and whether any other users are going to have it!
