Had a play with LupuPlus Libre 5.2.8.005 last night.

Despite the fact my laptop only has 512K memory the result is awesome with a frugal Lin'N'Win install. A bit of a delay while waiting for Libre Office to load from hard disk but nothing exceptional.

This is the first time I have had Libre Office running with its in-built help working without asking for the internet! Knoppix has Libre Office as well but it asks for the internet if you click help. Perhaps they have not configured Java properly.

Libre Office includes the Base module. Puppy has a database at last - for those that need it! Haven't tested it though. Worth a test as this depends on Java.

Does Libre office include the Math module? Didn't see it on any menus anywhere.

I downloaded the -1 update last night so will install properly with save file tonight.

Very annoying that a minor update comes so soon after release. Now there is a -2 on the LupuLibre option. Not sure if that is bringing it up to LupuPlusLibre standard (some of it certainly is) or whether it goes a bit beyond. Annoying if it does. I don't like this rotational update approach! Upgrade all strands to the same standard at once.

To be perfect this Libre option could do with a lot of boring tweaking work to align everything with the Libre Office addition. For example PupApps needs a tweek although the new PupMenu automagically detects Libre! The help file from the desktop needs changes. Pup Help 101 probably needs some additions. I'm not asking for Playdayz to do this. what he has done is awesome. We need some polishers to give the final sheen.

I love this Puppy!

Oh yes, there is a problem with shutdown and this may be a solution in some cases:

I have discovered a problem with JAVA support in latest version of LupuPLUS-Libre.

It is described here. And,is similar with some past efforts.

Doggone playdayz, I haven't finished installing the earlier versions.

I ran into a problem which I notice on LupuLibre5.2.8.005. On a machine which uses the nvidia 96... driver recommended by the button on the drivers tab of quickpet, there is a race condition between different processes. To get a good install I clicked "no" when it asked if I wanted to exit X at that time, then did a control-alt-backspace exit to the cli -- after the driver had been installed and the menu updated.

What appears to happen on some machines, but not others, even with the same graphics, is that the exit takes place while the script is still working on the XML for the menu. This produces an error message when I return to the desktop, and sometimes a truncated menu.

I had earlier installed ordinary 5.2.8.005 on the same machine without a problem. It appears that the longer menus, and the speed of the machine, cause this problem to manifest itself on LupuLibre.

Bingo! Thanks, BP.
Don't usually have to bother. Perhaps there's something in Control Panel for auto-unmounting?

Later: Oh no it isn't! Spuriosity returns; reported on Saluki thread. This is new!

There is a little tweak to Lupu Libre now lupulibre-528.005-2. Basically it includes the doc-type pet that was extra, along with turning off auto-updating in Libre Office. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70855

Psip32 is now included long with Pburn 3.5.2.

One thing that can cause this when it is a full install.
If the partition Lupuplus is installed on, is mounted by clicking on the partition drive icon on the desktop.
If it is not unmounted by right clicking on partition drive icon and choosing unmount.
At shutdown it will do as you indicate.

Ah! Perhaps that's where ditto Saluki got it from?
This is serious, but no idea how to fix it.

i do full install lupuplus 528.005.
at first and second shutdown, it is no problem, but the third, lupuplus can't shutdown. after black screen, lupu back again to desktop, but no sound. when i poweroff again, it still back to desktop and no sound, over and over again. so i force shutdown by press and hold my power button.
lucid is the one of my favorite puppy. can anyone tell me how to fix that?
thanks in advance.

As long as you don't allow AbiWord to save anything critical, yes, but it only takes about a second longer to load SWriter.

Yes, Gnumeric is redundant in LupuLibre, but at least it's reliable if you do accidentally use it instead of Calc.

Just a thought to throw out: wasn't it just 2 or 3 weeks ago we were lamenting the passing of the late great Lupu? It looks to me like it will be a viable (and very useable) distro for quite some time, largely due to the efforts of Playdayz. Many thanks to him and the other devs!

My PC at work has Windows , Microsoft Office and Wordpad.

I find I use Microsoft office for the heavy duty reports and Wordpad when I want to write a quick note but want some formatting capability.

I think Libre Office and Abiword may be the Linux equivalents of Microsoft Office and Wordpad, although Abiword may be a bit over the top for Wordpad if there is a smaller replacement available.

Used in this way I think some of the difficulties/problems of Abiword disappear.

The more difficult question is whether Gnumeric can be dispensed with. I haven't really used Libre Office Calc enough yet to form an opinion as to whether Gnumeric is now redundant.

Playdayz,

Noticed Pelo added to his earlier comments. Seems Lupu 528.005 solved his problems.
