That is what I found all that time ago.
See if you can find my explanation from then. If you can't I'll look at the changes I have on my old system and see if I still have the details.

It id a mod to the xorg.conf file which gets reset to what it is now if you use the wizard, so avoid that.
You need to swap the monitor and the digital panel so that the panel is used first.
I never found a way of getting separate wallpapers.
The choices in the NVIDIA settings only seemed to allow the two in clone or merge mode under Linux.

I don't often use the old machine I did it with so it will take some digging.

Subject description: Dual Monitor Puppy 5.2.8.6
 

Here is something to report on that System Tray oddity where it moved to the 2nd monitor.

(After backing up my good working Lupsave file)

and after trying out a different XorgWizard resolution and looking around inside the NVidia X-Server Setting app and finding no solution to the oddity....

I looked under Desktop and for kicks I switched my desktop windows manager from Open Box to JWM / Joes Window Manager and this did the trick;
It moved my System Tray to my main monitor.

I dunno why? I'm exploring new features of Puppy almost daily now and having a lot of fun.

I'll try out JWM for a while now.
It's not a pretty as OpenBox, but it seems to work.

I will re-read your suggestion and see if I can implement it.
My main Dell Monitor is using my VGA connection.
My Toshiba Big Screen TV is using the HDMI connection.

Thanks for reading and replying to my posts.

Many Thanks,

In my case it involved a Dell Latitude C840 Laptop? with a 1600x1200 screen and a 1920x1200 Samsung monitor that I won in a competition and has since died.

I list 185 different ISOs in my Puppythèque, 40 downloaded, 20 in use. Smile
on the other side, the menu does not change a lot, desktop, language and lib 'QT, JRE) are the main differences.

PostPosted: Thu 27 Nov 2014, 16:16    Post subject: Rebooting Puppy
Subject description: Want to Reboot Puppy LupuSave to a different LupuSave
 

Been experimenting making different LupuSave files with Lucid 5.28.6

I I want to change into a different LupuSave file, I do a complete reboot of my computer, select the correct USB stick to boot from and then select the LupuSave file I want to experiment with.

Picky question:

I am using the same Puppy, Lucid 5286
Is it necessary to do a complete reboot of the computer ?
Is there a way to get out of one LupuSave file and load into different one without doing a complete computer reboot ?

Great thanks,
I-Dont-Know,

you could swap the contents of the savefile. Mount a second savefile and move contents from present savefile then mount the savefile you want to switch to and copy the contents to the mounted savefile. Restart X. Might work. StemseeS-Remastering-Suite helps to create and mount a second savefile and rsync contents from present savefile. But my aim is exactly to allow simultaneous independent/switchable savefiles, once I gain the know how.

tall glass of 'scrumpy' - apple cider.


For US readers this equates to hard cider, possibly in the range 7% - 8% not a drink for wimps.

@8Geee. If 'Applejack' is pure fermented apple juice, then it is the same drink.
Cider. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cider Wassail ! Wink

Scrumpy is Apple Cider and is usually 6%-9%. Plenty strong enough when drunk in Flagons (2 pint pots)


AppleJack is a different drink and is artificially fortified by (usually) freezing out the water and leaving the stronger spirit behind.

In the UK we have 2 terms for apple products, Apple juice (Non-alcoholic) and Cider (Alcoholic). Scrumpy is generally accepted as a variation of the later and is made mainly in the west country (Somerset/Devon) and homebrewers like myself who aim to get Malo Lactic Fermentation going (not easy) which gives the home made product similar characteristics to Scrumpy.
