First, I corrected the replacement modeswitch package -- see my previous message. So the 4 of you who have downloaded the first attempt should re-download and install the new one before any further testing

@rerwin Is it correct that the only one of your patches I currently require to be up to date is partch-7? Also, I cannot get my usb webcam/mike to get noticed by baconrecorder or MPlayer. It works fine with Skype and Guvcview handles the video side fine. Would your usb-modeswitch help?

Are these updates relevant to 3HD as well?
Yes, patch-7 contains all of my fixes since 002. I doubt that the usb-modeswitch package would affect your webcam/mike, because it is only for USB devices that include their Windows driver in what looks like a CD image. The switch changes the device so that it looks like a modem or network device -- whatever the device is intended to be.

I would think that both the patch and modeswitch packages should also work in 3HD, although I have not tried them there. I defer to playdayz as to whether they can be applied to 3HD. So, I suggest waiting for his approval.

I've just now uninstalled the older modeswitch package [though all appeared to be working well Very Happy ], and installed the newer version.

Off the top of my head I dont' see any problem with applying patch-7 and the latest usb-modeswitch to 3HD. But please remember that doing so is experimental. If you are not having a problem with 3HD I would recommend backing up your luci save file before applying them--which is always a good idea anyway.

Playdayz,

Barry has posted about some bug fixes and update to Puppy core programs. Any chance some of this stuff will make it into a Lucid Puppy update?

Some already has--in fact, some is/was in Lucid first, such as the snapmergepuppy fix. Usb-modeswitch update will be in the upcoming Testing ISO, in fact we will have 1.2.2 instead of 1.2.1--this is posted by rerwin also. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=595173#595173

PlayDayz,

Do you plan to put the updates in a (the) new iso ? I would definitely like the Pburn update, but not immediately. I can wait for 528-005 iso.

Regards,

Volhout

P.S. I know 528 is in maintenance mode, but is there anyone working on cosmetics (themes/wallpapers/iconsets). Functionally 528 is great, but visually it could be "styled". i.e. Ubuntu may be great, but Mint has more "style". Is that something for 528-005 ? STU90 made a simlar remark some time ago. I use on all my puppies the i*P*A*D iconset from GCMartin, sinmply because they are consistent and stylish. I know there is MACPUP. But what can we do to 528 ????

More in the style of ... (I know it uses Conky, but it is more the style I want to empahsize ... and not only the FAENZA iconset).

Volhout : It's really tiresome that some folks care so little about their fellow correspondents that they refuse to resize their images so that the less advantaged members of society can also read these columns. 800x600@60Hz would be a suitable maximum, unless there are still a lot of 14" crt s about, in which case 640x480.

Perhaps John can appoint another more effective moderator with the necessary skills in due course.

Volhut, I would not be averse to a new-look desktop, but to be honest, I am not going to do the work Wink In the meantime, instructions and links about how to achieve a new look would be appreciated by people I think--either in this thread or in the Eye Candy thread.

As Sage says in his plain-spoken way I have found it best to resize my desktop images to 599 pixels across--in fact, that is the only way I can get them to show up--I am not sure how you did it with larger images. Thanks.

Bigpup and Volhut, The new TESTING ISO is almost ready. It has Patch-7, usb-modeswitch 1.2.2, Pmusic 2.3.0, ffmpeg 0.8.9, ffconvert 1.2, sfs-load 1.3, PupControl 1.8.8, Sylpheed 3.1.2, mrpaint 3.40, PupApps 1.6.2, PupSnap 1.6.3, pprocess 2.2.4, Pburn 3.4.3, and all those drivers. By all those drivers it is meant that almost all of the extra drivers for Lucid that tempestuous has prepared--and it is quite a few, 41 actually! Because the drivers are placed in a "z-drive" the TESTING ISO can even boot in ram on a 256MB machine.

BTW, Pmusic 2.3.0 is already available as an upgrade for 5.2.8 in the first message of this thread. It is a largish pet because it also contains some dependencies (ffmpeg 0.8.9).

Subject description: Sorry ....
 

Sorry to have caused so much trouble with these larger pictures.
I did not upload them, I merely placed links in this post from these pictures that where already posted earlier in the Eye Candy thread.

Sage, I know bandwidth problems (had a few myself) and cost associated with large size files. I will edit the previous thread, and replace the pictures with links.

Playdayz, I understand your position, in not volunteering for the work. Although it would (potentially) only involve a different set of themes, wallpapers, icons, and maybe a different default lineup of icons on the desktop.

Volhout

P.S. I noticed that when you manually move the drive icons, you can never get them back in the position they where originally. If the snap grid is different.

That's true. There is a technical thing though--some things are easy to remaster, such as changing the wallpaper, but other things are a pain, such as changing icons. Changing from fbpanel might also be a pain. In other words, just because I can change something on my version does not automatically mean that it will remaster with those changes. At that level remastering can be a challenge--since the complications increase exponentially. I like nice clean easy remasters Wink So pets that users could apply that would have everything for a new-look desktop might be an easier approach.
