    Re: ToriOS

    Greetings from Greece,
    Nice job
    I've just installed ToriOS in my wife's ancient laptop.
    HP presario 700 , AMD Duron 996 MHz, 384 MB Ram , and everything is running far better than expected regarding the low specs of this machine.

    Awaiting for the first stable full release
    For long time I was searching for a distro to revive this old laptop with the ease of Ubuntu OS.
    I tried a lot of distros for "Old Hardware", like puppies, Antix, Slitaz etc but I liked this one from the first sight and I customized very easily since I am not a pc guru

    Keep on great job guys

    Re: ToriOS

    I'm just starting with it but in my case seems to fit very well with my old Asus EEE900!
    Thanks!!

    The Trackpad configuration is really complete, but I can't achieve the two finger scroll... :S
    Any ideas?

    Re: ToriOS

    You can test

    Code:
    synclient VertEdgeScroll=on VertTwoFingerScroll=on HorizEdgeScroll=on HorizTwoFingerScroll=on
    We can modify the jwm-settings-manager to have this option if it works

    But shimoda could clarify whether two-finger scroll works with any other operating system on that machine. For example, it doesn't work on my Lubuntu 16.04 (and previously 14.04) running on a Dell Inspiron 1545.

    I first identified my device, AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint, with xinput -l:
    Code:
    07:30 PM ~ $ xinput -list
    ⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
    ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ PixArt USB Optical Mouse                	id=11	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint                	id=13	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]
        ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard             	id=5	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Video Bus                               	id=6	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Power Button                            	id=7	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Sleep Button                            	id=8	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ HID 413c:8161                           	id=9	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Integrated_Webcam_1.3M                  	id=10	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            	id=12	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Dell WMI hotkeys                        	id=14	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    07:30 PM ~ $
    I then ran xinput list-props "AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint" | grep Capabilities:
    Code:
    07:30 PM ~ $ xinput list-props "AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint" | grep Capabilities
    	Synaptics Capabilities (311):	1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0
    07:33 PM ~ $
    And from the explanation of the output, described in man synaptics,
    Code:
           Synaptics Capabilities
                  This  read-only  property  expresses the physical capability of the
                  touchpad, most  notably  whether  the  touchpad  hardware  supports
                  multi-finger tapping and scrolling.
    
                  8  bit  (BOOL),  7  values (read-only), has left button, has middle
                  button, has right button, two-finger detection, three-finger detec‐
                  tion, pressure detection, and finger/palm width detection.
    I see I don't have two- or three-finger multi-touch or finger/palm width detection.

    In such cases, I'm guessing modifying jwm-settings-manager wouldn't help?

    Re: ToriOS

    Wow I wish I had known about this before putting Puppy on all my low resource machines! For some reason I am always fixing computers for clients that want to hold on to computers like they're antique collectibles, and I always put Puppy on there just so they can have some usability--usually giving them to their kids for a game/edutainment machine. I'll be excited to give this a try, my only real complaint with Puppy was that it wasn't Ubuntu/Debian based and had to be specially configured for a persistent install.

    Yes, I was using Puppy & now Bodhy Linux and works in both cases...

    ToriOS in Japanese

    Ladies and Gentlemen, guess what? ToriOS now has a Japanese website administrated by our newest family member BALLOON from Japan:

    http://torios-jp.jimdo.com/

    What? didn't see that coming? the name is Japanese after all so definitely someone from Japan will join and contribute

    Thanks BALLOON, we highly appreciate that

    What about you? why don't you help ToriOS with your native language?!

    Thank you so much
    That would be great as we do need some feedback before we start working on ToriOS 2.0

    http://torios.top

    Before we get over excited, there will be 1.1, 1.2, etc until 2.0 which should be different than 1.0 not only an improved version.

    I already have some basic ideas but will wait until we receive some feedback!
