I seams that someone found a way into SF servers and they have had to stop some of there services and one is the upload of new files and the download of new files so it will be after the weekend before I can post the updated MyWolfe.

nooby

for some reason I have not recived notice that you had posted and now that I have read them I can tell that MyWolfe-023-alfa and the soon to upload MyWolfe-026-beta are not based on Jwm it is based on Xfce. So as soon as SF get there severs fixed try mine but yes check out others see what you like.

Ah interesting XFCE most likely work good on my computer.
IceWM and Openbox did work so most likely xfce would work too.

Subject description: burniso2cd
 

It seems that burniso2cd is having a problem. It doesn't burn anything. I watch my cd drive door close and a second or two later it pops open ! The program then asks if i'd like check it. My first thought is "Check what ya ain't done nothing yet silly thing." Otherswise 024 is in fine shape so far. Any ideas . H,mm, i beleave puppy 5.2 has the same trouble or is it lupu?

Now that you mention it I tried with my daughters computer the other day with MyWolfe-020 and it did not work may have to look into this for my little notebook does not have a cd rom.

Still not getting post of this subject strange

Edit

Don't get me wrong now. I am a native Swede and are self taught English so have no nuances and often write harsly not knowing that that is so !!!!!

So bear with me now! Smile

Good! Very good that you think of poor Swedes not knowing English.

You have menu in Swedish but you did not ask me if I wanted that?

Too bad! I have no idea how to translate back a Swedish word to the proper English computer term for it. I never talk Swedish doing computers. I've read about computers since say 1965 or so and always in English on our big Libraries for Royal High Tech School

So I know not a single word in Swedish for how to do menus. I fail to get around in the menus.

How do I get menu in English and keyboard in Swedish?


Ooops it was easy but I don't remember what I did but now I have English again. What a relief now I know how to find my way around hope I find the pmount now

The widgets is not shown if that is what the white space is supposed to accomplish.

oaky it is a Beta I know. But I write from it now and see not pmount or how to find the HDD Smile Wow I feel crippled in my own language very embarrassing

So please make the language choice an opt in instead of opt out. Smile

Cool that you have latest Firefox. I know others just love Seamonkey or Chrome or Opera but I 'm a FF guy

Hi nooby

I will be just guessing here but as I can best see when you go though the setup the first time set it to English then use the keyboard/mouse setup to change keyboard to you native language.

But sence you have it running change the language using the Chooselocale County localisation.

Pmount is in the bottom bar with a small floppy icon.

Some times the bottom bar does not have icons until you do a save file then they show up not found out why yet.

Let me know if this works for you

Thanks I found it myself doing some trial and error

Yes it does work now Menu in English and keyboard knows Swedish åäö

but I fail to tell the default browser to use firefox

All else seems to work apart from that a newbie would drown in all the choices when one should see a picture. So many programs to go through not knowing the Viewnior is a good choice?

Same with editing a text. How do they know that Geany is an easy to use one?

And to find the Sda was not easy at all.

But that could be due to Xfce is something one have to get used to when one come from Puppy being used to that all hdd is shown as folders dirs on the desktop.

I am so lazy. I guess you do tell which puppy it is based on but now I 've already forgotten. Is this most likely puppy 511 or something because it boots and that is unusual on my Acer D250

It is based on T2 not any puppy but the base that puppy started from. I am going to fix the firefox issue in next release. I am going to put in a few more right click entries in Thunar to make it easier to use. Most the the normal used program that you will find in puppy are still in MyWolfe just has a different desktop. I am trying to smooth out the rough edges give me some more time and input and I will get it there.

Ooops sorry I should not have sounded critical. I guess me was grumpy.

I am not good at being social. Good luck with setting it as you want it.
That is the most important. That it feels good for you and you feel satisfied doing it. Most likely I will settle with Lighthouse or DiabluQ or puppy Studio or some other puppy with lots of music production in it.

LMMS is something my Synth need. I long for to be able to save melodies so I don't forget them.

nooby

I took no offense with your commits I use all commits as a way to make MyWolfe be a puplet that many can use. I looked at your LMMS sounds interesting may play with it later. I do plan on compiling Libreoffice first not getting it from debian files like I did before. So please test MyWolfe and comment and help me make it better.

I am a poor tester. I am too ADHD to be patient. I'm like a Butterfly from one puppy to another , DistroJunky or what the official condescending name is. Too impatient to really learn to use all the stuff well enough.

What coult I test. I have comment on that the biggest hurdle was to guess what program to use when I wanted to look at picture or see a music video clip.

Next ever bigger was that the Browser was not connected symlinked or what it is named to the Firefox. So it did not start up I had to go to Menu internet FF

But that one was in upper left corner while all are used to that it is in lower left corner Smile


What more? Yes it started in my own native language. I know that is very polite and maybe most Swedes like that. But suppose you want to ask something. How do you refer to that thing in English if it is in Swedish? Very problematic.

Yes I know there are one or two puppy linux forums in Swedish even. Last time I checked they want one to be member even to read them.

why that secrecy. or is it an easy way to stop spammers? But our spammers here are members so that does not help much.

I don't know if I can help. You have to ask a specific thing for me to test then and still not know if I feel for it.

I'm like a Dev in that regard. I only do what I feel for. Smile

Hi nooby

what you have posted is what I was looking for feed back, firstly not sure about a work around on the language thing will have to look into that as time allows. The firefox issue is that Xfce only used what is in /usr/bin so am making a bin file for firefox there looking for a way to make it default. Have started building up right click menu in thunar that will let you select programs for a file type. Like to view a file viewnoir to edit pictures Gimp. For music or video file it will be Xine will look at what else need to be in there if you see anything that is needed point it out.

I set the default destop to use the Compositor which is under window manger tweaks it has some nice setups. Is that working good on your computer. Have you had any program failures.

enjoy
