Xine DVD DVD Player works fine with no problems watching a DVD movie.

I wouldn't expect a difference Bigpup. So use XineDVD--I do! I think it is a gnome-mplayer problem. Here's hoping for good things from 1.0.5.

Hmm, I wonder what would happen if we went backwards on gnome-mplayer? Here's 1.0.2 if you would like to test. I just tested Lion King DVD which might be kind of strange, but the highlights in the menu seemed to be in the right place. That makes it kind of important that a few people test because we could revert in Instant Update 002. I don't have many DVD's Wink

maxpro4u, It should play of course. Does it give any kind of message? I just checked and mine worked. I have the "Super Multimedia Upgrade" installed. You could install that if you haven't already. You could also open a terminal and enter gnome-mplayer and then File -> Open to select the mp3 and see what it says. Have you checked multiple mp3's just in case one is bad? I also just checked without the Multimedia Upgrade and clicking an mp3 played it in gnome-mplayer.

There is a file /usr/local/bin/defaultaudioplayer You could open that file and substitute deadbeef or pmusic for gnome-mplayer.

My guess is that either it's a bad mp3 or some pet uninstalled something important.

I had similar artifacts when switching from window mode to full screen mode on a 1280x1024 screen. That was fixed when I changed the video output from X11 to XV.

Check if this helps.

Well Gnome Mplayer is still not very good for movie DVD play.
It does play a movie, but many little buggy things happen. I could list all of them, but lets just say a lot of things do not do what is expected.

What version of Gnome Mplayer should I be seeing?

For example:
I get selection pointers, from the movie menu, in the movie when playing.

I report two bugs (Lucid Puppy 5.2.8 with Instant Update 001):
1. The "Music Player" and "Search" in "Default-Programs-Chooser" don't work (always left blank what ever you chose last time).
2. The "Pudd copy drive/partition" doesn't work for drive copy (popup the "Usage for Xdialog" after click "Choose drive").

PostPosted: Thu 15 Sep 2011, 14:32    Post subject: modeswitch 1.1.9 -- analog dialup modem drivers available!

playdayz,
Although I thought I sent you the latest version of usb_modeswitch (1.1.9) for lupu528, I see that the release contains version 1.1.8. There is nothing wrong with 1.1.8, but we advertised 1.1.9. So, here it is.

In my testing of dialup modems, I discovered a bug in the firmware initialization script for SmartLink modems that prevents use of the "slamr" driver. I include the corrected firmware tarball in the attached package, along with "1.1.9".

But my big news is that I have compiled all of the dialup modem drivers and have posted them here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=564112#564112
They should reduce any urgency for creating a retro version of 528 for modem users.

The only modems missing from the new drivers are the SmartLink PCI and USB modems, which are supported as of kernel 2.6.30, but apparently not beyond. The SL firmware in the package is there for consistency with my upgrades for lupu525 and puppies based on 4.3.1 -- and in case those drivers ever become viable again.

As an experiment, I made a clean (pfix=ram) remaster of 5.2.8 after installation of the Instant Update, the attached package, and all of the new modem-driver packages. It appears to work just fine. Please consider the attachment for inclusion in the next Instant Update package. Thanks.

I guess I should have answered there instead of here.

what if it is same phenomena with sound as it is with some LAN cards
them are protected either by BIOS or some other internal security thing.

Some puppies always did kill my LAN card and the only way to get it back
was to shut down the computer and to take out the battery and unplug
the power cord and let the Capacitors that hold the Voltage to slowly die out
and then to start up and the LAN card was working again.
To test if everything else fail to get the sound going!

Concerning sound, these are my recommendations

Is it a fresh install of 5.2.8?
What pet was installed and uninstalled? If a problem began when a pet was installed/uninstalled, we must know what pet.
Was the Instant Update 001 for Lucid 5.2.8 applied?

0. Open retrovol and make sure all volumes are turned up
1. Use alsawizard
2. Try pfix=ram/fresh install of Lucid 5.2.8
3. Try pfix=ram/fresh install of Three-Headed Dog.
4. ask rerwin
5. try Slacko or Fatdog64 or use Lucid 5.2.56



Likely there is some problem with sound/alsa when upgrading from 5.2.5 to 5.2.8. I saw a problem once myself but it was only that I needed to turn up the volumes in retrovol. I strongly recommend that one begins with a fresh install rather than an upgrade.

I get an error when launching Inkscape (installed via Quickpet).
cf. screenshot.

Hmmm. It starts for me, in Lucid 5.2.8 with the Instant Update 001 and the Super Multimedia Upgrade installed. It does throw some warnings in a terminal, but they are not the fatal bus error that you get.

I will have to experiment some more. Thanks.

ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-lucid/Inkscape-0.48.0-Lucid.pet

Try this. It is from portablelinuxapps.com. However, it still throws gtk warnings when it starts, but it *seems* not to throw any when it is running. Since that is the same thing that the 0.47 pet in Quickpet does, I am not totally optimistic. Inkscape is a nasty thing to compile because it needs a whole lot of dependencies--so I gave up on that.

Thanks because in playing with this I found the solution to the gtk errors I mentioned--Ubuntu has updated the libgtk used in Lucid and with the new one -> no errors.

Oh, I'll post it in a minute Wink

->->-> libgtk-2.20.1 <-<-<-

This is an update from Ubuntu and it prevents excessive numbers of gtk warnings being thrown by inkscape (not inkscape lite). I would bet it did other good things. It should be in the next update unless testers find problems. Thanks..
