A right-click menu option to quickly set a picture as wallpaper would be nice, especially if it is built as a simple .pet addon. BTW, standard Puppy doesn't accept PNG format for background pictures but LXPUP does. Thank you for this puplet, Jejy. I'm enjoying it Very Happy

Hello !
How are you ?

First, news :
-First patch released ! Available on the Apps page of the website.
You need this to install future Wm desktops.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/checkmatelxde/files/patch-11.12-1.pet/download
- OpenShot 1.4.3 working, Phil's package doesn't work since I have updated libs on lxpup.
-All De, are rebuild, and now available in SFS format.
kde 4.9.2 -> 162mo now
Xfce 4.10 replace 4.8 version.
Trinity 3.5.13 -> 71mo
Cinnamon 1.6 -> 27mo
Mate 1.4.1 -> 46mo

Conflict risks reduced thanks to SFS format.

Pcmanfm 1.1.0 can be downloaded ! Go to Lxde website to see what is new.
I added Vim and Conky.

Star Wars succumbs to Disney. Surprised

______________________________________________________________________

Ok, I keep Precise version.

Vicmz issue : if you install Pupsaveconfig, install below package too
( pupsaveconfig-patch.pet ) attached to this post.

Pchan, I will see that, even though I know nothing with this kind of problems.

In the patch, rox is replaced by pcmanfm., by editing rox file.
exec 'Rox' to launch rox now.

I will work on conpiz, thanks Mandibule for his tip.

To change background !
It's simple, just right click on the desktop -> 'Desktop preference' and change wallpaper... Or go to the Control center, 'Set wallpaper'

To translate Control center, simply edit label in /usr/bin/lxcc file.

Thanks all !

Hi jejy69
Thanks for openshot-1.4.3. Working flawlessly here. Very Happy The SFS couldn't load though .... hangs computer forever until I shut down manually. Had to convert it to a pet for install.

Just a note:
You might want to look at the cinnamon sub-menu problems
(reported here) once again to see if something can be done about it. Smile

Cheers.

Hi Jejy69

Just a small point - but I am unable to find the date/time change utility anywhere in the LxPup menus.....

Hope I'm just being stupid - but I have looked pretty closely...

Cheers
peebee

Thank you Jejy, the patch works! I'm also updating langpack_es to translate Lxpup.
I've downloaded the XFCE addon and it has too many submenus, how can I set the menu to not display subcategories?

Really? Since Puppy 5 and later, after setting a PNG wallpaper the background turns white, and an error message appears, I don't recall what the message says. Sorry, I should've said it happens to me, I never asked because I thought that's how Puppy works. It isn't that important actually, I just have to use mtpaint to convert the wallpaper to JPG. Very Happy

Just for the record, standard pups support png and gif images as backgrounds. I think tif too.

Sorry Jejy69 for the brief hijack.

Oh, back on topic.. go for it with Precise Smile

Ubuntu is popular, whatever draws the fans Wink .. puppy needs it, no offence taken here. However, you do what you want.. it's the fun that keeps it interesting.

Hellooooow !

smil99, I'm working on this Cinnamon bug, I'll try to remove submenus...

peebee, you, stupid ? No, no, no... You found a bug, Lxpanel doesn't load a puppy submenu... Meanwhile, in /usr/share/applications, you have some apps at the end to change time.

vicmz, thanks you, I search too, to remove submenus, but for now I don't now... Sad Maybe in /etc/profile...

Hi 01micko, thanks for your advice, it's just I like Slacko too...
And your Wallpaper too ! Star Wars !!!!!!

Lxpup no-Pae available, based on RetroPrecise ! 195mo...

http://sourceforge.net/projects/checkmatelxde/files/retro_lxpup-11.12.iso/download

Don't need the patch.

Cheers !

Hi Jejy69,

Thanks for retro-lxpup (non-PAE precise). Works flawlessly with my favorite applications. Another great job.
After trying out alternate windows managers, I've decided that I really like the simplicity of LXDE, especially after realizing that I could add a second panel making it easy to call my most frequently used applications. I've attached a screenshot. The left-center panel is usually set to be hidden unless moused-over. If you've looked at any of my other screenshots recently, you may notice that they look pretty much alike regardless of whether my window manager was XFCE, or JWM or Openbox with fbpanel. Call me a creature of habit. I'll take that as a compliment: having to think about procedure just slows down actually getting work done.
PCMan has proven to be an easy adjustment from the idiosyncrasies of Rox, so not too great a learning curve. One thing I notice worth passing on: In doing a manual frugal install, I set the Grub4Dos menu.lst's pfix= argument to "ram" so as not to inadvertently use an existing SaveFile. But I want to edit that argument out before rebooting. To do so, one needs to pmount the drive/partition on which menu.lst is located, and then use PCMan to access that drive/partition and file. Rox will open the drive/partition as "read-only" if you haven't yet created a SaveFile.
Guess I'll have to figure out how to add or create more icon & color scheme themes; or wait for someone talented to do so. For anyone interested, there's an Eye-Candy thread in the additional software sub-forum.

Just two trifles: Any idea how someone could add a "Showdesktop" launcher to an lxpanel? This is the more important of the two.
The other is that although LxPup can be configured so that right-clicking the desktop produces a pop-up menu, the menu listings seems to be some default: listing applications not installed, and not listing installed applications. I rarely resort to using such pop-up menu. But it may be important to someone with different habits.

I would add:
Absolutely superb - the whole package - LXpup and website.

Am using retro-lxpup now and it seems to run even better than expected on my ram challenged 10yr old Acer laptop.

Many thanks for a stunning Puppy - much appreciated.

Very best regards - Ray.
