Hi Playdayz. I've check the MD5 its OK. and other facets of the system seem OK.

But, in this LIve media operation, I am NOT getting same results. When I click the item showing in the playlist, nothing happens. I cannot get PMusic to play anything in the distro. If there's something you want me to try for you, PM me and I'll help..

Maybe this has something to do with something missing that would be available after a save to media and reboot. I'll give that a try and report back. Again, this is a Live media system. Not frugal or full.

So far all seems OK.

Any link to something that gives details of the new stuff added via the update?

Thanks Sylvander, Scroll down about 20 lines or so in the link to see what is in the 002 update. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70855 And if you updated from an earlier version than 5.2.8 you can scroll further down and read what is in 5.2.8.

Brown Mouse, I think that Hoover track disappears when you left-click another track.

I have to say,something is definitely not right.
If I left click on an mp3,it opens in 'Pmusic'and plays ok.
If I do a right click on an mp3 and select 'Add to Pmusic playlist',it adds the mp3 but wont play.
At the bottom of the Pmusic GUI it says 'Source not detected'.

Yes. In the plain update with Pmusic 1.8.3 Add to Pmusic playlist causes the mp3 to play, but in the multimedia version with Pmusic 2.2.1 Add to Pmusic playlist causes Pmusic to open and the mp3 to be added to the playlist but not to play. However, clicking the mp3 in the Pmusic playlist causes it to play. It does say Add to Pmusic playlist, rather than Play in Pmusic. Of course Play in Pmusic is a left-click. The difference is that left-click wipes out the old playlist, while right-click adds to the old playlist.

It seems that Pmusic -a (Add to Pmusic playlist) works differently in 1.8.3 and in 2.2.1.

Do you all get zigbert's surprise Hoover track? BTW, I think the Info function in Pmusic 2.2.1 is great. It gives the album art, lyrics, websites, and so forth automatically for each track

I should test the mplayer gxine differences.
Now in Snow Pup I do have Mplayer? And it
get off sync on some short music clips.
Maybe Gxine does not. But I have VLC too
and that one fall out of sync so maybe it is the clips being bad.

There are actually 2 different versions of mplayer nooby. The version in the plain update is the same as in 5.2.8 and in Polar Pup (I assume) using the ffmpeg libraries version 0.6. The version in the update with the multimedia upgrade is the newest version of mplayer using the libraries version 0.8.2. You could try both and see if you notice any difference.

Also, Lucid does not include gxine, but includes XineDVD. What that means is that it uses xine-ui instead of gxine. That is present mainly for playing DVD's but it will also play videos. My experience is that it does not play as many different kinds of video formats as mplayer (which is why we moved from gxine to mplayer in the original Lucid 5.0).

Other than the silly error message.

Dang, dang, dang. How did that stupid dang error message slip back in there?

To fix it, open /usr/share/applications/gnome-mplayer.desktop and find the line that says 'Exec=gnome-mplayer %U', delete the %U, and save.

Oh, it seems it didn't sneak back in--it has been that way the whole time Embarassed

Tested Gnome Mplayer with a movie DVD.
Did some kind of audio loop repeat and never showed the movie.

That's why we have both gnome-mplayer and XineDVD Wink Gnome-mplayer should do the DVD menus better than it did, that is, if it does the DVD menus.

Bigpup, You could try opening gnome-mplayer then Edit -> Preferences and changing the Video Output to x11, to see if it will play that DVD right, but then it probably won't do the menus right..

A little later than planned.......was installing Xubuntu 11.10 on an old P3 (866 Mhz/512 Mb ram)........painfully slow install and pretty darn slow trying to use. Laughing

Lucid Puppy 5.2.8-002M, fresh manual frugal install on the Athlon XP box.All the basics good ootb as expected.

DVD in Xine DVD, no problems. Menus working,able to toggle to fullscreen and back. DVD in Gnome MPlayer working correctly too, no problem with the menus or fullscreen.Other than the silly error message. Smile Took care of that really quickly.
