Subject description: Font Wizard problem

I have been using Slacko 5.5 for a while and everything was working well.
So this may come under the category of "If it is not broke, don't fix it.
But I went to menu - desktop - fontwizard and clicked on all the options and tried apply.
All I saw initially was that the font in AbiWord seemed to be darker.
So I went back and unchecked those boxes.
Now, the fonts that appear in program headers, the menu, and other places seem ragged and I tried rechecking the boxes in fontwizard with no change.
So now I am at a loss as what to do beside reinstalling Slacko 5.5.
I should mention that the fonts were initially quite clear in all places and applications before I started playing with Fontwizard.

So, can this be verified that there is a problem with Fontwizard.

I do have the Nvidia pet installed by the way.

Also, is there an easy way out of my situation?


Yes there is. Barry changed it, not so good for Slacko Sad . Easy fix, just delete ~/.fonts.conf (hidden file), restart X and you are back to square 1. If you still have problems search the LQ slackware threads for decent info.

Thank you for that information!
I did not have a lot of stuff added to Slacko 5.5.00 so I made a new pupsave file and reinstalled the stuff I previously had.
I had forgot to mention that the monitor I am using is a LCD type and the fonts have always been very clear with any Puppy version.
Since I still have the old pupsave file though, I will try your suggestion and see what happens.
Thank you again.

Booted successfully from frugal install (without savefile) but during first shutdown (after selecting savefile parameters) I got messages regarding "Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed". It was necessary to use the hard poweroff to complete shutdown.

Next reboot resulted in a corrupted desktop.

Toshiba TE2100 laptop
2GHz, 512MB.

EDIT : I deleted the savefile and tried again - this time successfully.
The first time around I had activated the firewall, and also changed timezone and language, so maybe that explains the different behaviour somehow.

I should have mentioned the savefile parameters are: ext2, 256MB

All working in my install of slacko 5.5 now but I had some hard problems due to the not mature repositories and a PPM not perfect. Attempting to install guvcview I destroyed my slackosave: I had success instead with wxcam from slackware14 repository and examining a few dependencies. I use wxcam with preloading libv4l or v4l-utils. I compiled 0.8.6 version of v4l-utils you can find in this post:

Installing a hp printer-scanner all in one I had troubles: I had not success with hplip in repositories, neither puppy4 hplip works. I had success running the sh script from:

http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install_wizard/index.html

choosing debian 6.0 (slackware not listed). I don't have the skills to modify the script to put in a pet package the working hplip.

PostPosted: Tue 09 Apr 2013, 16:28    Post subject: main sfs not found on SSD-drive  

Some interesting problem have been reported on Russian Puppy forum. I have made Russian Slacko installer for Windows. After installation it in Windows-7 it gives message "main sfs not found". It was reported that Puppy directory with all files is created correctly. Windows installer creates something like this in menu.lst:
Code:
title Slacko Puppy 55
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /Slacko-Puppy-55/initrd.gz
kernel /Slacko-Puppy-55/vmlinuz psubdir="Slacko-Puppy-55"
initrd /Slacko-Puppy-55/initrd.gz
boot

After modifying this line in menu.lst
Code:
kernel /Slacko-Puppy-55/vmlinuz pmedia=ataflash psubdir="Slacko-Puppy-55" pupsfs=sda1:/Slacko-Puppy-55/puppy_slacko_5.5.sfs

main sfs was found, but there was kernel panic after switching to layered file system.
Precise-5.5 and Slacko-5.4 have also failed to find main sfs.
It's strange. Main sfs is not found even if it is next to vmlinuz and initrd.gz in the same directory and when in is specified as a parameter it gives kernel panic.
Installation on SSD-drive with one partition.

IIRC, there have been other reports of this problem with SSD's. I would try this.
Code:
kernel /Slacko-Puppy-55/vmlinuz pmedia=cd

This is Puppy's most "aggressive" search mode.

However, the kernel panic suggests that Puppy is incompatible with the way that the SSD has been formatted.

Sounds to me like the driver for the ssd isn't loaded in time, or at all. Can you confirm if the driver exists in the initrd.gz? Or even in the main sfs?

Thanks! I realized that your pets work on a fresh install. I always found hplip in repositories. With precise I use that of ubuntu repositories. With wary I use puppy4 hplip. I knew of your tutorial but it did not come in my mind.

01micko,
it's not my computer, so I can't do any testing. I'll try to get more information if I can.

Hi Mick,

Running on my dell d430.


I would like to know if you would recompile bibletime for the new slacko? The one in the repo works, but closes when closing a book not the program and sometimes the graphics don't show up. I am running 5.5 non-pae.

On the pae version the graphics don't show at all.

the rt2800usb module

We did this problem in one of the Puppy threads several months ago. It now works with some Puppies and some boards for me, so I've forgotten the answer. May have to blacklist some other modules? and run it as a different model. Unless our resident expert, (rerwin?,) passes this way, I suggest you settle down to a long session with the "Search" for the answer.

"We" dealt with this problem several years ago (August 2010) when the rt2800usb driver first appeared in Puppy Lucid 5.1.
The only comprehensive fix is to replace the unreliable rt2800usb official driver with the vendor-supplied drivers, which I provided for Lucid 5.1/5.2 here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=481085#481085
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=513360#513360

I have not provided these vendor drivers for any Puppy version since then. I don't have much time these days, and I don't have kernel compiling environments of any modern Puppies installed.
