@Jejy69 about right click context menu

There doesn't seem to be a /~/.local/share/applications

What am talking about is right click of a desktop icon or file in PCManfm, sorry for not being clear. Maybe it's a PCman config file I need to edit.

In Checkmate, the desktop icon for PupApps will look much better after editing the corresponding .desktop file as follows:

Go to /root/Desktop/PupApps.desktop

Open the PupApps.desktop file in a text editor and change

Code:
Name=PupApps launch favorite apps
Icon=/usr/local/PupApps/icons/applications20.png

to
Code:
Name=PupApps
Icon=/usr/local/PupApps/icons/applications48.png

Thanks Smile

Start of "porting" CheckMate for Racy, for those who slacko does not work. Wink

I had some comments here that apply to both the LXDE and Mate desktops, concerning how great they are Wink

I don't remember where, but I think I read a post of Jejy saying that he couldn't install some dependencies in Wary without breaking the system, therefore he decided to try Racy.

I downloaded and burnt the Finale of ChekMate. The md5sums didn´t agree, but the DVD booted the PC and programs ran. (I explained in another thread the problem verifying md5sums.)

I found that QTweb wouldn´t handle http://physicsforums.com When I tried to read any thread there, QTweb wouldn´t display any messages in the thread. Can others confirm this?

Also, when I was typing a message for this thread, I clicked on a smilie icon to include it in my message, but that mouseclick caused my compose window to be exited/aborted and I lost all I´d typed.

Posting this from Checkmate V7 on my Acer Aspire 3680 Intel Celeron M 420 1.73GHz with 2 gigs of RAM. The browser is Google Chrome 20 which I installed from *.deb after installing gconf-3.2.3-s.pet and puppy-gc-001.pet. The latter deals with the root user issue (thank you Shinobar). So far this has been one very smooth experience.

QtWeb used only for simple navigation, it takes less space in the Live cd. It's like Dillo, in Lupu of Playdayz.
For larger sites, it is best to install another browser. Smile

Also please note that CUPS is not fixed. 500 Internal Server Error is still present when attempting to setup CUPS as previously reported.

EDIT

Very Happy CUPS is fixed! Sad to say that I did not test CUPS until after I had tested Shinobar's puppy-chrome with Google-Chrome 20. His program fixes the permissions issue for Google-Chrome allowing it to run as "root" user however it creates a permissions issue with CUPS. Duh! Embarassed

I was able to setup CUPS successfully prior to running puppy-chrome. It is no problem for me because this particular HP printer can print from the cloud. I scan by directing the browser to the printers internal web address.

My apologies for not working this out before posting on the subject!

Hello roadkill13!
I was looking for a solution, I am delighted that you found the source of the problem, can be used for others and even for me, I did not know that it could influence.

GG to solve the error Wink

Has anyone had this issue with Checkmate-v7?
When you delete a file it doesn't get deleted permanently, it is just sent to a hidden folder ".Trash-0" inside the same disk where it was located. Well, a dialog appears indicating that the file is going to be sent to Trash, but when I click on the Trash folder from the file manager the files aren't there, so I can't empty the trash to free the space, it says Trash is already empty. When I examine the hidden files, I can see that ".Trash-0" folder with the files inside. This means that "deleted" files keep accumulating and taking space on my disk.

And now let me say Checkmate is fantastic, it is fast and elegant. One of my friends downloaded a 700MB ISO image of an LXDE OS, it took about 8 hours. I downloaded Checkmate in half an hour and two hours later I was testing it at home! Laughing

I've had the .trash-0 folder a few times but have always been able to see deleted items in the trash folder.

I just did a few tests,

1- Put fresh CheckMate on a USB drive, booted, played around a bit then deleted an item and emptied the trash. Didn't do a save and no .trash folder.

2- Booted, deleted an item and left it in the trash, didn't save and no .trash

3- Booted, deleted, emptied trash, saved, no .trash

4- Booted, deleted, left in trash, saved, no .trash

I was expecting it to show up after a save with items in the trash but it didn't happen. Not sure what is causing this .trash but my last one was 512MB. I just deleted it and found no problems.

The other funny thing that happened with these tests is after a save with trash in the bin on reboot the trash is empty.
