Upgrade 3.5.2.8 to 3.5.2.11

Went very well!

WiFi now 'WORKS' as it should (even survives reboots.) and was very fast setting up... automatically found everything needed to connect except my 'key- numbers' typed those in where it asked for them, BINGO... connect!!!

Linksys AE1000
rt2800usb

It appears finally the wifi with puppy is solved.

Updated all my systems to 3.5.2.11, now that the wifi and Chrome is working again.

Only problem I found is that after waking up from the sleep mode, from closing the laptop's
lid, the hot keys for the sound buttons no longer function.

Hardinfo seems to have some fields missing in its base screen (Computer) and its first (Summary).

is this because of its age or ???

This may have been mentioned before. If you run Gparted and add/remove some partitions, the desktop drive icons do not update until you manually restart X.

Correct me if I am wrong on this
But AFAIK the problem you mention
are a known old one and I am not sure
that there is a solution or that it is promised
that it should work.

Just from my very poor memory.

Just tried the 10 version.

Abiword now shows highlighted text without going black.

Wheezy openbox plus working ok (Vicmz, not sure but if you add the dpup openox pet afterwards it might make obconf work, forgotten what I did in 8 but I removed xdg jwm temporarily and then put it back and openbox and menu maker started to respond, bit hacky though. Tint2rc conf is really good and quite intuitive once you make your desktop files and icons.

The powersave button on the taskbar is great. Turns a desktop dualcore into a halfcore in 5 seconds.

Another nice distro from Pemasu.

PostPosted: Sat 14 Dec 2013, 17:37    Post_subject: LxPup-by-SFS available for Dpup Wheezy  

I've made a version of LxPup-by-SFS for Dpup Wheezy - see

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=743812#743812

This means that at a future date there could be a Wheezy flavour of LxPup13.11

Cheers
peebee

Here are some pets I compiled on wheezy, I tried installing transmission from wheezy repo through PPM and it goes OK but when you run it, it scrambles the GUI interface, assuming something to do with gtk3, this is the last version that supported gtk2.
Also fluxbox compiled.

dejan555. Thank you very much. About scrambled gui. Surely it goes to the gtk-3.0.
I suppose you have meddled with gtk themes. Knowing you. When I tested with default gtk-3.0 theme, Bluebird, I didnt got scrambled gui when testing debian wheezy main transmission-gtk. Gtk-3.0 themes are mess. There is no underlying standard...themes have tendency to broke...when underlying deps are updated...I have manually fixed the ones I have in Dpup Wheezy. I wont much try to add more gtk-3.0 themes to the build. They just are too difficult to maintain. I hope the situation will clear in the future.

I tested also transmission-qt, worked and qbittorrent. The latter needed devx sfs to be installed, due to python needs. The nova search in qbittorrent is python dependent.

I will upload your pets to the pet_packages-wheezy....when I have time to start next update cycle. Hopefully during Christmas....

And thank you again. Compilers are always needed. And thanks to don570 also of his Gimp and other pets. I will check them in the future also. Thanks goes to the vicmz and peebee too....of their efforts in alternative WM. Openbox - Lxde - tint2 are great wm additions. I think they will have place in pet_packages-wheezy also...

About non-working obconf...I read from some thread that there was at least one needed lib missing: I checked my distro_specs.
I have added this lib for obconf: libxcb-util0
Might be useful to try to install and test obconf again. That lib is not yet preinstalled.

Hi pemasu

That lib is in my current lxpupsetup-d.3.5.2.pet.....I will now remove it once 3.5.2.11+ appears.

Cheers

I didn't change themes, it was the default one, and next time I tried installing transmission-cli only but somehow that broke gui too (more precisely text in gui - I get square characters instead text everywhere)

Suggestion about appereance: make urxvt nicer via ~/.Xdefaults like sidebar on the right and maybe darker background I'll post my config later

Thanks Koulaxizis, I moulded it from electrons Wink

Just before I forget, Yes that libxcb-util0_0.3.8.2 i386 deb in the wheezy repo brings openbox conf to life, and married with Vicmz Openbox_Plus 1.5.pet, gets a fully working Tint/openbox desktop with fixmenus updating correctly and living in harmony with JWM.

Didn't have much joy with the Wheezy repo on the openbox/tint debs.

Roxterm works also from Wheezy repo, either gtk 2 or 3 and also Roxterm 1.1.17.1 pet
and menumaker 1.1.1.7 pet amongst all those nice little progs that were made and forgotten about.


This is on version 11.

My ~/.Xdefaults
Code:

!Rxvt*keysym.0xFF50:\001
!Rxvt*keysym.0xFF57:\005
! but urxvt in quirky etc needs these...
!Rxvt.keysym.Home: \033[1~
!Rxvt.keysym.End: \033[4~
! broomdodger reports this works in both 431 and quirky (rxvt and urxvt)...
Rxvt.keysym.0xFF50: \033[1~
Rxvt.keysym.0xFF57: \033[4~

!Rxvt*menu: /root/.rxvt.menu
Rxvt*saveLines: 1000

urxvt.foreground:#00FF00
urxvt.background:#000000
urxvt.underlineColor:#00FF00

! fonts
! run "fc-list" for a list of available fonts
urxvt.font: xft:Nimbus Mono L:style=Regular:pixelsize=16

urxvt.geometry:70x25
urxvt.scrollBar: True
urxvt.scrollBar_right: true
urxvt.scrollTtyOutput: False
urxvt.scrollTtyKeypress: True
urxvt.secondaryScroll: True
urxvt.saveLines: 1000
urxvt.cursorUnderline:True
urxvt.cursorBlink:True

urxvt.transparent:Off
urxvt.shading:85
urxvt.borderLess:Off



And here are packages for weechat, python plugin is packaged separately in case you don't have python installed/loaded with devx

weechat-0.4.2-i686-wheezy35211.pet
weechat_PYTHON-0.4.2-i686-wheezy35211.pet
weechat_NLS-0.4.2-i686-wheezy35211.pet
weechat_DEV-0.4.2-i686-wheezy35211.pet
