Ubuntu Lucid apps. and lib.s should work with Puppy 5.2.8 Lucid?
If there are known problems please tell...

The ones you can download with Puppy Package Manager, if you configure it to access the Ubuntu repositories, should work.
Need to make sure you run check for dependencies option when you use PPM to download a Ubuntu package.
The Ubuntu packages, with all their required dependencies, can be very large.
Packages made specifically for Puppy is the best way to go.

I`m wanting to make large groups of apps. bundled into Squash files.
This way folks won`t need a 2 GB Save file!

### Has a Lucid been made that`s completely stripped of larger apps.?
It still needs: X, xOrg, VT, Geany, mtPaint, Puppy scripts, etc.

Thanks for the tips Playdayz. Actually, I'd already done the advanced settings having had those presented to me during setup of the browser. However, I was unaware of the "metrics" one you mentioned. Thanks!

Cheers!

Thanks a lot for providing the .pet of the Google Chrome-19. This has been the very first time I've tried it since... oh... perhaps version 4 or 5. I see now what the hype is all about - especially when it comes to the speed of this thing! I dare say that it is nearly as fast as Dillo-3.0.2

Hi Eyes-Only, One other possible advantage of Chrome is that Flashplayer is built-in so that the external Flashplayer is not needed.

A possible mod to Chrome is that under "The Wrench" -> Settings -> Show Advanced Settings -> Privacy one can turn off some options which *might* insure that info is not sent to Google and *might* improve the quickness of the browser.

Additionally, in /usr/bin/google-chrome one could add the command line option --disable-metrics which *in some versions* of Chrome was said to turn off the collection of info that would be sent to Google--thereby not sending info and again possibly speeding up the browser. I am not sure if this works in Chrome 19.

Hi Playdayz,

Thanks a lot for providing the .pet of the Google Chrome-19. This has been the very first time I've tried it since... oh... perhaps version 4 or 5. I see now what the hype is all about - especially when it comes to the speed of this thing! I dare say that it is nearly as fast as Dillo-3.0.2 which I normally use around here when in 3HD ( 95% of my time BTW ).

Simply incredible...

Again: Thanks for providing this browser. It'll be rather fascinating using this for a spell. Smile

Cheers/Amicalement,

This is not Playdayz's tweaked version of LibreOffice.

My tweak was just a slight adjustment to one of the desktop files and I think 01micko has included that, so this is the one to use.

Just to be clear, the possible advantage to using one of the Libre versions of Lupu or 3HD or FatSlacko is that Libre Office is built-in to the sfs and therefore loads into ram and will startup and run somewhat faster.

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.

so I made a frugal install reusing the old savefile but uninstalled the old FF

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.

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.
