Hi All,

*** Conky-Clock ***

Choose analog clock to display on the desktop, using yad GUI.


Just thought I'd mention this, in case anybody else is experiencing the issue (although this pertains to Ubuntu Mate 18.04 beta2, I imagine it could very well be an issue on other desktop environments);

On this Mate install, I've found Fred's conky clock has a tendency to spontaneously disappear from the desktop on clicking around menus/desktop elements/etc - the simple fix is to modify the ~/.conky/analog_clock1/.conkyrc_analog1, line 10, from -

own_window_type desktop or* own_window_type normal *(doh - can't recall which one it was originally... Confused ) - to;

own_window_type dock

Seems to now be perfectly stable. Cool

Bob

If Dogs never learnt how Puppy Linux boots, read boot options
I am translating DebianDog utilities.. Learn how to do is faster when explained by a teacher.. better than hazardous tries..

Just so no one looking at this thread later gets confused, this link has absolutely nothing to so with the boot options for Debian Dog and doesn't belong in this thread.

PostPosted: Yesterday, at 23:38    Post subject: Why not to format FAT32 when Gparted.  

About Puppy boot options, i disagree with you.
These parameters are to be used in menu.lst with Grub4Dos... And can be used with DebianDOG. GRUDOS itself is a Puppy boot process, and has been added to DebianDog.
Never mind

About formating FAT32, topic tells us to use Gparted and format ext2, but screenshots later show ow to use FAT 32 .. FAT 32 has so many advantages, Why not to format FAT32 when Gparted.
Brand new usb for first test... DebianDOGs cheatcodes are the default for us, Puppy Users, pupsave are so easy..

Disagree all you want, you are wrong. None of the puppy boot options (the ones that start with p) work with Debian Dog. There are some general kernel boot options that might work with both, but that's not what is at the link you posted.

Debian Dog uses either DebianLive or Porteus to boot. They each have their own boot options which are different than Puppy. It has nothing to do with Grub or Grub4Dos.

PostPosted: Today, at 20:18    Post subject: Puppy does what any Linux is still unable To do  

Of course puppy commands cannot be used.. Just look what we can do with a Puppy and try to do as well.. That is development.. Puppy Linux had success because it does what any Linux is still unable To do
Dogs use vintage systems.. to launch their LiveCD

My purpose here is to install DebianDog using Debian installer. I am learning how-to-do.. Link to Puppy boot options is just for information. If you don't want to study them, no trouble.. I just underline that I study DebianDog systems.
Sorry if my English is not perfect..
