New version updated to Firefox 3.5.2.

- Pictureviewer for PDF without the launchbuttons
- And (I think) better fonts for browsing (DaJa VU and Libaration Serif)

If you want more 'Web'fonts, download and install the Microsoft Webcore Fonts with this script:
Install_Microsoft_Webcore_Fonts.tar.gz
Description  Download (from alkalay.net) and install the Microsoft Webcore Fonts
gz

Does BrowserLinux have a problem running frugal in a sub dir.?
I`m running Barry`s SeaMonkey that way, seems it should work.

It says it can`t find the file: pup_412.sfs
I renamed BrowserLinux`s file: pup_412browserlinux0908.sfs to: pup_412.sfs and still no go.

I need MS fonts for a program I run in WINE. Excuse my ignorance but will this script install MS fonts for everything or just Firefox?

Every program can use the fonts. Except Wine ... Confused
Maybe you can symlink te files (in /root/.fonts) to the fonts-dir of Wine.

Well my app I installed under wine now works fine! Whereas before it displayed lots of squares instead of text after installing MS fonts it now works properly. I had to fiddle with which version of wine I installed but used one of the latest versions from puppy.ca site.

Hi,

I've been wanting to try out Browserlinux, but, every time I boot from the CD, I end up with a kernel panic when the system attempts a 'switch_root to layered filesystem', and the message "Not syncing - attempted to kill init!"

Any ideas what could be the matter? This is not the first Browserlinux CD I've burned, and all have had the same troubles. I'm using a Packard Bell Easynote, if that's any use.

Tried to check this puplet out... the older version looked and worked well.

I get a "pup_412.sfs not found" error using both the usb and live cd versions. I'm thinking that's because the .sfs is named something else.

What's the fix?

Hi,
does not get a WIFI connection from
a RTL 8185 PCMCIA WLAN card to a Nokia 5800
Joikusoft.fi Handy-WLAN Router software.

I am using the Nokia 5800 Mobile phone via the
Joikusoft.fi Softwareware router as a WLAN router,
but the joikuspot software works only in
WLAn adhoc mode, not in master mode,
and this is why I don´t get a connection
to the router...

Can you change to a newer disti as the base,
which supports better the Adhoc mode in WLAN
systems ?

I need to get my tablet PC via browserlinux
to connect via WLAN...


Many thanks.

Hi Martin,

I've recently downloaded (for first time) this puplet and engaged the password request (heavy encryption) at boot option.

I spent an entire day downloading add-ons and modding my firefox353 the way I like it, only to find on subsequent bootup my changes were not saved (pup_save_crypta) Very Happy

Even when I click the 'save' icon on desktop prior to shutdown, it still reverts to the version of firefox I had prior to invoking password at boot option. Even my open webpages are not saved; I still get the same webpages on bootup of firefox that I had previously.

What could the possible cause of this be? I have searched extensively on this forum but found nothing, and was thinking maybe it had something to do with this puplet, and with the password at boot option in particular.

And now I cannot even reformat the memory card because it's write protected! I've even gone into windows and edited the registry, to no avail.

Edit: solved this by locking and then unlocking using switch at side of card, permitted reformat then, even though card not locked in first place!
