My First Variable
Introduces input (the read command)

The read command changes the variables each program run
	#!/bin/sh
	echo "enter two numbers"
	read a b
	c=$(($a+$b))
	echo "$a + $b = $c"
	# or
	let c="$a+$b"
	echo "$a + $b is $c"

New Problem and solution Below for code
#!/bin/bash

# Randomly changes the wallpaper at fixed time intervals

INTERVAL=10      # in seconds

while true; do
  sleep $INTERVAL
  WALLPAPER=`ls /usr/share/backgrounds | sort -R | head -1`
  set_bg "/usr/share/backgrounds/$WALLPAPER"
done

Adjust the time interval to your needs, save the script as "randomwallpaper" to /root/Startup and make it executable.
Now click on it.
To stop the script, open terminal and type:
killall randomwallpaper

New Run
Process for a new run from DVD booting

First Preparing
1. backup html bookmarks (onto HD)
2. move any essential files to hard disk
3. download and burn ISO

Now first run
1. use 'puppy pfix=ram' as the boot command (start typing when boot: appears on screen) I do this on first boot but is not required for new users
2. Turn on firewall from icon bar bottom right, left clicking runs wizard
3. Do a save after initial set up, I now do max 4GB saves
4. Click on 'Setup' top row of icons for tweaking
5. Use the 'connect' icon. Ethernet is auto connected.
6. In Rox options/thumbnails/show images - I prefer to see images in folders
7. Add my own backgrounds from Hard Drive (usr/share/backgrounds)
8. Change icons. Adjust the style of the clock with Menu -> General Utilities -> PupClockset manager.
9. Put on pup ad blocker, import bookmarks

Hardware

Remastering
Before you remaster, you need to

1. rename /usr/sbin/xorgwizard to /usr/sbin/xorg-setup
2. copy the attached xorgwizard into /usr/sbin. ( right-click -> Save As) http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/xorgwizard

What is happening is that on first boot, the attached xorgwizard runs and Lucid boots to the desktop, then it renames xorg-setup to xorgwizard so that users can run xorgwizard. Sneaky, huh?

You also need to change the permissions on /root/Startup/fullstart. You could do that during the remastering process when it gives you a chance to adjust files in /root. The way I do it is to right-click and choose Permissions. So if the name fullstart turns green that means the permissions are correct for it to run on first boot.

creating a md5sum
# md5sum Lucid_Tmxxine-v1.iso > md5sumtxt
