Thanks for including the sources ttuuxxx.

I like the default options in the old freememapplet, then I modified this tray version to add Right click menu for lxpanel, Time&Date and Partview. Also changed the text memory description for the actual pupmode, something I wanted long time ago to avoid confusion between RAM memory, pup_save and Hard Disk free space.

You can use stock icons for menu items instead of labels (I included the necessary code but it´s commented), you also can remove the "Exit" button too if you want, just remove any menuitemExit code and trayExit function.

Greetings,
clarf

P.D: I would like to test the network-tray too...

Subject description: atmeo_cs module works in Puppy 4 series but not 214x
 

Puppy 4.3.2 and other Puppy 4 versions automatically recognises the SMC 2632Wv.2 pcmcia wireless network card on my old notebook. It uses the atmel_cs module.
However, Puppy 214x Top3 does not detect my pcmcia card on startup. When manually loading the atmel_cs module, it does not detect any interface with the card.
I am newbie with Linux and would appreciate any guidance if I have done it wrongly.
Thanks!

Hi ttuuxxx,

I tried to enable Composite manager on metacity, using:

Code:
gconftool-2 --set /apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager --type bool true


But I get the error:

Quote:
undefined symbol XcompositeGetOverlayWindow


Did you compile metacity with compositing enabled?. Do you have a metacity pet with this enabled?

Thanks you,
clarf

Subject description: grub setup full install
 

I tried to do a full install and when I rebooted there were no entries for linux. What is the correct format for menu.lst. I tried to just use the menu.lst for 5.1.1 but it must be different because it did not work.

this is from 5.1.1. What do I need to change?

# Start GRUB global section
timeout 10
color light-gray/blue black/light-gray
# End GRUB global section
# Linux bootable partition config begins
title Linux (on /dev/sda1)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 ro vga=normal pnpbios=off
# Linux bootable partition config ends
# Other bootable partition config begins
# Other bootable partition config ends
title Install GRUB to floppy disk (on /dev/fd0)
pause Insert a formatted floppy disk and press enter.
root (hd0,0)
setup (fd0)
pause Press enter to continue.
title Install GRUB to Linux partition (on /dev/sda1)
root (hd0,0)
setup (hd0,0)
pause Press enter to continue.
title - For help press 'c', then type: 'help'
root (hd0)
title - For usage examples, type: 'cat /boot/grub/usage.txt'
root (hd0)

sorry if this was answered before but I could not find it.

I'm running two full installs of 214 on my test box.....the original 2.14x rc5 and the newer 2.14x-top3. Here's my menu lst......


title Puppy Linux 431 full install in sda8
root (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda8 pmedia= idehd nosmp acpi=force

title Puppy Linux 214r full install in hda9
root (hd0,8 )
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda9 pmedia=idehd nosmp acpi=force

title Puppy Linux 214x full install in hda13
root (hd0,12)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda13 pmedia=idehd nosmp acpi=force

Notice that 2.14 uses hda instead of sda.......................

HTH.

hda instead of sda-that was it! Now on to the touchpad. How do I get it to work? Edit the xorg.conf file!
Option "MaxTapTime" "220"
Option "MaxTapMove" "220"

Hi nancy,

The /etc/rc.d/sysinit.rc script is responsible to enables swap partitions, but it dependes from some conditions like the PUPMODE.

Could you give more info please: are you booting 214X from a Frugal or Full Install?. The USB stick is detected by Puppy?.

Greetings,

I am no tweaker so do not know about etc/rcc .. things.

[b]PUPMODE is the way you run frugal full or ? or the boot parameters you give ? Gave no bootoptions

- Live cd
- All sticks in the hub (have only 1 usb hole), and the copied sfs, are recognised.

- Besides, when trying on my bigger lap, it does not recognise the usb drives in the pcmcia card.

Thanks

Hi,

I'm a noob - so sorry if this is too trivial or in the wrong place or something.

I have been getting to grips with Puppy 5.1 but have found several problems with my hardware (gxine causes the screen to blank and lock up etc.)

I was recommended to try classic puppy - so here I am.

I downloaded the latest file (top 3).

I can boot off a live CD ok and I'm trying to install to usb. The universal installer gets all the way to the last step 'press enter of CTRL C to abort'

At this point, any key press gives a dialogue box - with F1 and F2 at the top and the name of the program (universal installer) and a + and - underneath, only whilst a button is held down... Can't get it to do anything else. Closing the window terminates the installer and ejects the CD Shocked

The usb stick is formated as linux ext2 and the has a bootable partition (flag set) and a small swap partition. Otherwise empty. It is mounted.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi nancy,

After a better look I found that init script is actually enabling the SWAP Partitions and the /etc/rc.d/sysinit.rc enables it only in a Full HD installation (PUPMODE=2, in this mode Puppy don´t read the init script).

It could take some time to solve the problem in the init script, and I don´t have a functional USB now. A small workaround to make Puppy mount your USB Swap PArtiiton is:

Open /etc/rc.d/sysinit.rc file with Geany and add the # character to beginning of the lines 137 and 193. It will disable the PUPMODE condition, It should be like:

Code:
line 137 - #if [ "$PUPMODE" = "2" ]; then
line 193 - #fi


Save your changes and restart Puppy.

Here's a new spreadsheet editor, it comes with 4 programs and a help file I included in the same menu as Gnumeric

This is what the developer said about it.
Homepage/sources http://code.google.com/p/mtcelledit/


Code:
mtCellEdit is a lightweight spreadsheet program that was created from scratch. It is a small, no frills program which is designed to handle simple day to day spreadsheet tasks. I have put the most important facilities I want into a small customized program which means I can avoid the problems of larger programs such as slow operating speeds and overcomplicated user interfaces.

The program has 100 undo steps, and allows a file to contain any number of sheets. All cell referencing is done via the R1C1 notation which I find more efficient and less error prone than the more commonly used A1 notation.

The core of the program is a shared C library which can be used by any C program to read, write and manipulate spreadsheets.

The default file format mtCellEdit uses is portable and transparent as it is a ZIP file containing TSV text files. I deliberately designed it this way so that data can be extracted and read by any modern spreadsheet program on any operating system without requiring mtCellEdit. Over the years I have been frustrated by binary and XML formats that make data only accessible via a single program (or by me wasting time manually converting each file, or by me writing a file format conversion program). This format ensures that my data never becomes stranded, and can be manipulated by whichever tool I choose for a particular job (i.e. spreadsheet programs, text editors, command line tools, etc).

In the source and binary packages I have included some example programs that use the core engine to demonstrate how useful spreadsheets can be to general purpose programs. These packages also contain a few library dependencies that are required.

mtCellEdit has currently only been tested on GNU/Linux systems, but it is pure C language so porting it to other systems should be fairly trivial.

Like all software, mtCellEdit is a tool, and in order to use it efficiently you will need to study what it does and how it works by reading the handbook.

Check out the size include the large help doc's, would make a nice lightweight editor to replace bloated Gnumeric/Goffice, remember guys the abiword in 2.14X doesn't use Goffice only gnumeric does. Hmmm too bad it doesn't do xml but it does have lots of other formats if you click save-as you'll see them.
