Put a Puppy in your PC, part 5

Filed under
Linux

It's time to say goodbye to Puppy Linux but before you put your disc away, in readiness for a disaster that will hopefully never happen, here's some more configuration tips and features you might like to try.

I mentioned in part 3 that the sound might not work when Puppy boots for the first time, if so here's what to do. Go to Menu > Setup > ALSA Sound Wizard. Click OK and the audio devices on your PC will be displayed. Select the first one on the list, click OK, confirm the selection (a couple of times) and you will hear a test sound (a dog bark). If it doesn't work go back and try the next option. If your PC is barking you can try out Puppy's audio recorder and mixer, audio and video replay (most formats, including MP3 and DVD), ripping and burning CD and DVD features, which you will find under Multimedia on the Menu button.

Now let's install your printer.

When we laid out our featured article on things you need to do after installing Ubuntu 14.10, we shared a few little issues we have had with the latest Ubuntu release. Well things got worse, and I decided to try something else for a change. I've been using elementary OS Freya as my daily driver since then. And I have to say, I'm mighty impressed so far. And the fact that Freya is still very much in beta makes the whole affair all the more interesting. A list of reasons why I prefer elementary OS Freya over Ubuntu 14.10 at the moment. Read more
