PostPosted: Tue 15 Dec 2009, 09:49    Post subject: Macpup 2fs?  

Is it possible to publish the 2fs somewhere which contains all the adjustments which converts the standard puppy 430 into the Macpup?

I have a puppy 431 on a thumbdrive and I would like to have 2fses at hand to make it appear as Ubuntu (with gnome), as Mac (with enlightenment), as Windows (with icewm) and as normal puppy (with JWM).

But to do that I need a couple of different 2fses

Fox 3 as well as both versions of Opera can switch between e17 and Jwm. Adding icewm to that would not be a big deal But getting puppy to run gnome is a nightmare. KDE seems to work better with it.

Sneeky Made a new vid !!! BUT let me explain , The layered sky is a wallpaper , not a full theme. If you put the .edj file in /.e/e/themes you can load it under themes but it will have the default black/white theme for everything else. It should go in /.e/e/backgrounds and then loaded under wallpapers BUT go under advanced and set it for one desktop only .

This is a really cool wallpaper also:

Subject description: FULL INstall ON SDA1 4GIG SSD
 

Well runt, I finally decided to blow away Xandros 4 and after a lot of live Puppy puplet USB runs. Decided to Install Macpup to internal 4 gig SSD. Left 16 gig home SSD alone. Will Edit it later to adapt to Macpup.

Tried Frugal Install. Wouldn't boot no matter how many different ways I tried to install grub. Full install with that grub menu entry seemed best option for me.

Touchpad works. Not to concerned with Hotkeys yet. Been at installing grub half the evening but got it right. Thanks for all your help and quick responses to my questions. I might have one or two later but that won't be till after New Years. I will donate and you and yours have a Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays. Happy Trails, Rok

PostPosted: Wed 23 Dec 2009, 14:37    Post subject: Macpup Foxy 3.0 and PET MAKER PLUS - V 1.7-3 for 4.xx series  

Has anyone been able to get Pet Maker Plus to work under Macpup Foxy 3.0? I have tried all the versions of Pet Maker and SFS Installer in order to be able to install an .sfs file I would like to use with my Macpup machine (full install), but so far no joy. Pet Maker Plus works fine on another machine using Puppy 4.21 (Turbopup).

Any suggestions? thanks in advance.

cheers, Paul

1. Open a terminal and run dir2pet . Works great for me.

2. Copy the .sfs ,make sure it is a 430.sfs, to mnt/home and use the puppy boot manager to load it . Or mount the .sfs and copy all the files and stuff over to your system.

I don't see how this helps, as one has to have a directory to convert.

Unfortunately the sfs conversion utilities do not seem to work with Macpup, and since I am using a full install, the boot manager will not load it. Also the Rox implimentation will not mount the .sfs files so that they can be unpacked, and moved as you suggest.

Any other suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

cheers, Paul

@paule :

pet maker ? what are you trying todo ? convert directory, or any other? if directory to convert the answer is dir2pet, if anything else and you dont have any directory to convert, its was useless.

if you trying to install sfs (must same version with puppy), all you need just klik on sfs and it will be mounted, then you can try copyed them to root (/) not /root.

if u use sfs deferent then macpup, u can use other puppy to open then copy to the directory . the rest is same as above.
