Zorin OS 7 ...... based on Ubuntu. Looks much better to me than that mess called Unity.

I have Zorin on a USB stick using rcrsn51 isobooter
but I get curious on what you accomplish with the code

Code:
live@live:~$ uname -r
3.8.0-23-generic
live@live:~$

what does that do for you?

I've recently installed the April version of Mint Debian and even on my old machine it works pretty well; Mint Debian is definitely lighter than the Ubuntu-based version. The only drawback so far was that I couldn't get Firefox to load, so I had to install IceWeasel instead (and I added IceApe and Opera for good measure).

I also strongly recommend adding Xfce to Debian-based distros - they go together very well and do in this case too.

Hi all, this...

whoops don't know how you guys got your screenshots inserted?
just check attached file please

...is my new toy and would just like to say thank you again to Barry and everyone who put all the hard work into developing these distros!

I'd also like to add at this point that I'd like to be able to watch bbc iplayer and other streaming services like itvplayer etc. but don't know which version of flash to install for this version of puppy, is there a pet or indeed an sfs?
If there is an sfs how to enable sfs support in this version of puppy or is it to remain experimental until further notice?

Any other pointers as to how to optimise my system so that it runs a wee bit faster would be great as even typing this reminds me of my crappy cheap android rip off tablet from china that I used to own and loathed, no offense guys,like I said earlier I am very greatful for all the work you do.
Just thought I'd also mention, I've just noticed the arrow keys aren't responding at all on my wireless keyboard, well not the main ones anyway. The ones on the numberpad work strangely enough and I have all the correct settings for a uk setup?

I recall when I first set this up using berryboot (quite nifty) I am able to add custom distros by holdong and clicking mouse over "Add OS" button and then by choosing copy from usb option. Would my favourite OS of all time "Puppy 5.2.5" be a contender for the RPi or perhaps Saluki 0.2.3?

Any help would be massively appreciated even if it was merely a link to another thread that would point me in the right direction.

Many Thanks in advance

PS. we are in serious need of a raspberry emoticon!
Anyone been thinking the same thing???

PSS. how could I change the background colour of my desktop so that there is not so much white? It's got too much white light!

Cheers All Smile[url][/url]

I've been running PCLinuxOS (LXDE) as well. I have things set up nicely. I also installed Razor-QT.

I just got rid of my pclinuxos install and grabbed the CD version of the new knoppix. The reason why I found out that a new version came out, was I went on distrowatch today.

I was curious to give knoppix a try so I downloaded it with ktorrent
and then used unetbootin to put it on a 16gb SDHC card which is
plugged into an usb card reader (running PClinuxOS FullMonty64).
I created a save file which took a while but is working okay.
I have the wobbly etc. screens by default, some windows can be resized
but others can't for some reason.
I installed a few things with Synaptic too.

EDIT: I don't know if XBMC is included on the dvd but I installed it
from Synaptic, it took quite a while to download and install but it
got the job done.
XBMC is a must-have application Smile

Knoppix has to be tested so I try to do a frugal install
could someone share what code to use and how does
one do the save file on knoppix?

Does one still have to wget the adobe flash thing?
