Puppy universal Installer has some bad info in the final step.
The info for Grub and Grub4dos is not correct.

For Frugal install:
The Grub example entry uses the rootnoverify command. This does not work, because the drive will not be mounted.

For full install:
There is no good example entry for a Grub4dos entry.
Only good for Grub entry.

Subject description: xfe-1.32.5

I made pets of the newest X file explorer in Lupuplus 005.
It also requires fox-1.6.45-i686.pet to be installed or it won't work.

EDIT: These pets have also been tested and work in Saluki 22 and Racy 5.3, will likely work in Wary 5.3 as well but untested.

GIMP Help

Quote:

gimp-2.6.11-squeeze-3.sfs
http://shino.pos.to/party/bridge.cgi?puppy/opt/pup5/
Based on the PET Iguleder compiled.
Works on Luci/Lupu/LupQ/Slacko/Dpup. Does not work on Wary/Racy.

See the setting to enable help.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=627671#627671

You need to Edit >> Preferences >> Help System
User manual set to 'Use a locally installed copy',
Help browser to use: 'Web browser', and
Web browser to use: 'defaultbrowser %s'.

Thanks shinobar. That would be the preferred solution.

Quote:
Add link to online manuals for available 12 languages.

By this I think shinobar means that a menu item could be created and added to GIMP packages that contained the link which contains the GIMP Help in 12 languages (http://docs.gimp.org/). That seems like a good idea to me too--I will make a pet of that later today.

I don't understand. I just installed LupuPlusLibre528.005-2 and the GIMP 2.6.10 .pets, program and help, and the help works fine without this gvfs-backends .pet. Huh?

Duh. I only tested the sfs--which had not been working for me. Well, at least it works.

Installed Seamonkey 2.8 from Quickpet.
Did an internal update to 2.9.1 by Help->Check for Updates.
Seems to have updated OK.

Help in GIMP

This pet (gvfs_backends) will enable the Help in GIMP in the 005 versions of Lucid and 3HD (in which the Help in other programs is working). AFAIK that is all it will do, enable the Help in GIMP. The version of GIMP used must have the Help present--this sfs does http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/pet_packages-lucid/Gimp-Full-2.6.10-Lucid.sfs Also the 2.6.10 pets in PPM--you need both because the Help is in a separate pet.

Help in GIMP

Shinobar below links to GIMP 2.6.11 and below that is a 2.6.12 at the bottom of the page.

Concerning GIMP 2.8. There is a version for Precise. But......

Quote:
A PPA is available for installing GIMP 2.8 in Ubuntu Precise and Oneiric. But notice what is currently stated on its page, specifically regarding Oneiric:

This PPA could break your installed OS. There are dependency issues for Oneiric Ocelot (11.10). Only use it if you know what you do! There should be no problems in Precise Pangolin (12.04).

http://www.tuxgarage.com/2012/05/install-gimp-2-8-in-precise-and-oneiric.html

Quote:
Unfortunately, as of now, there is no easy way to install GIMP 2.8 in older versions of Ubuntu. Mainly because GIMP 2.8 depends on many new underlying libraries which can't be found in the repositories of those older Ubuntu versions. Thus, you would first need to compile those libraries and then go for compiling GIMP itself, and that would obviously require a lot of work. However, it is theoretically possible if some of the enthusiasts decides to port GIMP 2.8 to those older versions of Ubuntu.

Nightingale / Songbird

There is a pet of Songbird in the Lucid repo in PPM that does play shoutcast streams. I guess Songbird quit making a Linux version so Nightingale took that over.

http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/pet_packages-lucid/Songbird-1.9.3-Lucid.pet

Pinta 1.0

http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/Pinta-1.0-Lucid.pet

For quick fixes of images and photos in my production environment I often use Paint.net. This program Pinta is extremely similar. i don't think it is more capable than mtPaint--and it is much bigger--but it is nicely usable. It is big because it is based on a Portable Linux App because it requires Mono to compile and that is a big mess as far as I m concerned.

Pity...
But the sound is so low-volume I can hardly hear it.

And so I won't post a link to it in my Puppy thread at the PC-Guide forums. Sad

Well, to answer the question.
When is the Gecko-mplayer plugin ever used?
Using Firefox 12 browser, this video played using the Gecko-mplayer plugin.
(It actually causes Gnome-Mplayer to play the video)

In Firefox preferences->Applications
mpeg files is set to use mplayerplug-in is now Gecko-mediaplayer.
Basically what this does is Gecko-Mplayer plugin makes the video stream to the Gnome Mplayer.

If I set mpeg files to use Gnome Mplayer the video would download completely and then play. No streaming.

btw I'm using Slacko, with Aurora 7.01, in case it makes any difference, and it crashes often with latest Flashplayer

hi aitch

you may want to move the gnome-mplayer cache /root/.cache/.gnome-mplayer. (it's hidden so press the eye) onto your harddrive, then symlink it back.
alternatively, i think that you can set the cache size in the gnome-mplayer options.

Hi Playdaz,

I had the same result as you did with Three-Headed-Dog and LupuPlus. So I've noted that on its thread.
It's a nice app if it works.('Laughing'). When it works, it provides a complete music manager. But if SHOUTcast fails then it provides nothing not already available using pmusic.
