Not sure if this has been posted before.
GUI to download LibreOffice
get_libreoffice-0.15.pet
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=65918

This is not Playdayz's tweaked version of LibreOffice.
It is a program that is suppose to get the latest version of the normal LibreOffice.
Says it is beta, but the latest version 0.15 seems to be reported as working good.

That made me lose the automatic connection to internet so each time I boot
I need to do a manual connection to internet by clicking on icon in tray
and wait for it to resolve an IP.

Is there a file to edit to make it do this automatically instead?

I remember vaguely that way back when we had lupu 525 there where talk
about a program in Menu that could make it reconnect but would that solve
this no connect too? okay I should try maybe it helps. Any suggestion?

Here is a thread about similar problem for Slacko?

Nooby,
I have had similar problems with Lupu528. Try Frisbee. Menu>Internet>Frisbee installer. It has fixed several installations for me. Good luck!

A video tutorial by smokey:

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)


Yes Bigppup. I am surprised to find that Google Chrome needs and uses the gecko-mediaplayer plugin to play this video. Since it has its own ffmpeg I wouldn't have predicted that, but if I remove gecko-medipalyer then Chrome just downloads the video.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Gnome-mplayer 1.0.6 below is the one that has been tested for a couple of weeks. Gnome-mplayer NLS is the Native Language Support files for Gnome-mplayer.

Gnome-Mplayer 1.0.6 ->

Thanks shinobar. I will post the NLS and BuiltinHelp pets I mentioned for people who might prefer those. I guess you figured out that I used Debian wheezy (testing) 2.6.12--I should have mentioned that.

Tested on lupu-528JP05(now developping based on Lupu-528-05). Not tested yet on other Puppies.

FYI: translations are under /usr/share/locale, ROX settings are under /root and under /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer.

GIMP 2.6.12 The Final 2.6 Release - For testing now

I didn't know GIMP could be this small, 11MB pet. The Native Language Support will be a separate pet and the Builtin Help will be a separate pet. The basic pet uses the method of online Help Iguleder used in GIMP 2.6.11 above--but 2.6.11 includes the locales (NLS) also. Both 2.6.11 and 2.6.12 use the web browser to display Help because the gimp Help Browser requires webkit which requires gstreamer, etc. But 2.6.10 in the PPM uses the Gimp Help Browser for anyone who wants it.

When first using Help choose Web Browser if asked. If you have used other GIMP packages you might need to delete the /root/.gimp-2.6 folder.

Well OK. But why not give a normal Grub4dos example entry for each type install?

One of my Grub4dos full install entries looks like this:

title Lucid 528.005 full (sda2/boot)
uuid 446028ce-5c60-46d4-a202-5cde1b6957f5
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda2 ro

Questioning rootnoverify being a proper entry was driven by this post. Maybe depends on hardware.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=78381

Tried it both ways, root or rootnoverify, on my computer and it does not care which one is used. Works for both. Seemed to make a difference for this guy.

I have always used rootnoverify for frugal installs with legacy Grub.... hundreds of installs with no problems.

Only good for Grub entry.

I am not sure good or not, but it works because Grub4dos is upper compatible with the legacy.


I can confirm that the identical menu entry will work for both legacy Grub and Grub4dos as well.
