@MikeWalsh -- I ran Slacko 5.6.0 for a few years on and off for the few old Latitude D6XX series laptops (and one D830 I traded for a genuine old school Buck folding knife) for about three years until switching to Slacko64 6.2.0, I believe -- anyway the non-UEFI one. Did similar as far as upgrading glibc, etc. Then decided to go with Tahrpup64, which I remastered thrice before happy with the custom ISO and upgrades Firefox began to require. On to current one based on buntu 20.04.

For me, puppy has always been a fall-back-to distro, and although used for weeks at a time almost exclusively, went with an installed desktop distro like antiX or siduction or solus or salix, only going with the 'buntu distros when they made something I wanted to do easier, like Enchantment OS did fo a while and with which I disovered and explored ZFS.

For you, on the other hand, Puppy has been a passion, obviously! You must have quite the stashed resources at your command, of which aI may be slightly envious!

I am also more than glad to see you frequenting LO.

@forester :-

Heh. "Stashed resources" is quite right, if I'm honest.

I worked out the other day that I've got something like 800+ Puppy packages available to the community, spread across 3 cloud accounts; Google's Drive, MediaFire and most recently, MEGA.nz. Some of it dates back at least 7 years.

On my system, I've got around 1.9 TB of specifically 'Puppy-stuff'! I'm a hoarder; I very rarely delete stuff once I've acquired it, although there IS a 'cut-off' point.....currently, anything relating to Lucid or older. Although, having said that, Darren did put together an upgraded Puppy 4.3.1 a couple or three years ago, before COVID hit - 4.3.11, the "Phoenix". My God, we had some fun with that. I think the biggest shock he got was when I assembled a portable-chroot based around Tahrpup 6.0.5, running what was at that point an up-to-date 32-bit version of the Iron browser.....v69, as I recall. I packaged the entire thing as an SFS, so it could simply be loaded/unloaded, as and when.

None of us could have imagined it would be possible to run a modern Chromium 'clone' in such an elderly Pup. I've still got a directory of packages we trawled the archives for to see if they would work.....

Yep, "our Pup" IS summat of a passion as far as I'm concerned!


Mike. :D

This reminds me, does ubuntu have a slideshow capability for desktop image, or is there a way of installing it? With windows I had a sideshow with local nature pictures and my pets.

In Mint open backgrounds ,.. Settings.. Select as slideshow.
Now open images and make a new file [not folder] in the left column and copy your slideshow selection to it name it slide show and highlight it.. simples..

Just qualifying that - Mint Cinnamon and Mint Xfce can do that, not Mint MATE.

The other DE that has function built in is KDE.

Under Ubuntu, you can use Kubuntu (KDE) and Xubuntu (Xfce) to get it natively.

Which one is that one? It looks familiar. Somewhere around here I have some pics out at Pemaquid Point. I don't think you've covered that one yet. (It's a lovely little town.)

It is the Portland Head Light, The picture was taken from the top of the knoll to the west at Ft. Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth.

I thought it was familiar. I've been there! Also, I think you've used that lighthouse in other backgrounds?

Yep, Holds a special place for me since I went to school for a semester in South Portland. There and two Lights State Park. Both favorite spots of Mine :)
We have made it a goal to visit all the Light house along the Maine Coast. And have visited most of them at one time or another.
The Portland Headlight is most likely the most Photographed Lighthouse in the world.

That wouldn't surprise me. We get a lot of tourists in that area too.

If you haven't, definitely visit Pemaquid Point. I haven't been there in a while, so I should probably get back over there. If you meander around, there's a fisherman's co-op in the area where you can stop and see what they have available.
