That's good. I would really like to establish the principle that Lucid always has a backup plan--if booting to the desktop doesn't work, then we have xorgwizard, etc. If SNS doesn't work we have Network Wizard, and then behind that we even have Frisbee ready to install.

***Pburn 3.3.6*** & ***Super Multimedia Upgrade***

I meant to put it into the Super Multimedia Upgrade. Oh well;. Here is is. Same difference. It needs some files from the Super Multimedia Upgrade.

Ha-Ha. The jokes on me. I did put it in, but 3.3.6 identifies itself as 3.3.5.

Or maybe not. I'm confused. But this version definitely has Pburn 3.3.6, even though it still identifies itself as 3.3.5

Thanks Playdayz.

Just one more question - can I just instal the .pet or, do I need to uninstall the existing Sylpheed first, also will it retain my acct data. Sorry, I guess that is two questions

Just install the pet and the next time you start Sylpheed it will be 3.1.2. It will retain your data.

Super Multimedia Upgrade testing.

Well Gnome Mplayer is still not very good for movie DVD play.

Yes, I basically agree. I strongly recommend XineDVD for watching DVD's. XineDVD behaves and looks like a DVD player that people are used to--that's why it is now included. If a user clicks a DVD, XineDVD will open and play it. However, people reasonably expect the default media player to play DVD's and gnome-mplayer does do that. It opens DVD with menu, except sometimes the selection indicator is off (that is a gnome-mplayer problem I believe, not an mplayer problem. I will test Smplayer.).

You should still see gnome-mplayer 1.0.3. Gnome-mplayer 1.0.4 has the bug about playing cd's. There are versions in svn of 1.0.4+ with the bug fix supposedly but Kevin DeKorte is now including a new library (gmtk). 1.0.4+ didn't compile nicely for me, so I decided to wait for the release of 1.0.5 before trying again.

There is a certain irony here. The Linux principle has always been one tool per job, but we want a media player that does everything. If we weren't a compact distro, I would include Audacious for playing audio, gnome-mplayer for videos, and XineDVD for DVD's. That's what I do at home.

I should say Pmusic is a wonderful audio player for most people. However, I always have 6,000 or so tracks loaded and Pmusic can't do that. Pmusic 2 has some great features about album art and so forth that imho richen the listening experience and it also allows changing which sound card it plays through.

Some people might find Smplayer or Umplayer all-in-one solutions, if they like watching all the previews on a DVD instead of going right to the menu, or clicking >> to skip them one by one. Every time I test I conclude that nothing is even close to XineDVD. Well, sometimes in XineDVD you have to click N and then Menu Toggle to go directly to the menu. And then there is VLC, of which I have little experience.

I also know that XineDVD is very good about supporting multi-channel surround sound cards, 4.1, 5.1, etc.

Finally, mplayer has its own mplauer gui, but it wouldn't allow me to turn subtitles off, so I didn't include it. The bottom line is, you guessed it, play DVD's with XineDVD. Wink

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.

Hi playdayz,
Thank you for this multimedia package.
I just have one question.
I do not understand the presence of a /tmp directory in the package.
Misnomer? tmp => root?
Respectfully.


The /tmp directory comes from Pmusic. Ah, I see, I think the pinstall would use it, but I removed the pinstall because it set up Pmusic as defaultaudioplayer. The items in the temp directory would modify the right-click menu. I will remove it. Good eye. Thanks.

You could ignore it and it would be deleted on shutdown. The current link does not have it.

***Super Multimedia Upgrade***

The Super Multimedia Upgrade contains the latest version of Mplayer, using the latest ffmpeg 0.8.2+. It also contains the latest version of Pmusic 2.0.2, as well as some supporting files.

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

ffmpeg is updated from the current 0.6.1--that's not as big a jump as it might seem, since 0.7.3 and 0.8.2 were released the same day--the chief difference being that 0.7.3 has most of the features of 0.8.2 but with more compatibility--in this Super Upgrade we go for the very latest! Pmusic is upgraded from 1.8.3, so it is also a version upgrade.

Mplayer is now "self-contained" meaning that the ffmpeg multimedia libraries are built-in to Mplayer, so it does not have to depend on whatever is installed in the system. This makes it larger, but the approach makes sense to me because now Mplayer knows that it has the latest libraries because it downloads them itself, and it also knows exactly what it has, rather than hoping the system libraries are in order.

It might improve your video to open gnome-mplayer and Edit -> Preferences -> Video output -> xv.

Pmusic 2.0.2 was released SEP 12 2011. For information on Pmusic 2.0.2 please see http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=264013406&t=31206

When we get some feedback here, I will add the Super Multimedia Upgrade to the first message of this thread and to LupuNews. Thanks.

I am loving 5.2.8 and the instant update seems to be working fine. Sylpheed is notifying of an update 3.1.2. Should I do it? Is there a .pet? Thanks folks for all your great work!

Playdayz,

Any help you could provide to this guy about his sound device not being detected by Lucid Puppy 5.2.8.
You can read the entire topic, but the basic problem is stated here.
He is using a very new computer.

robotgirl, I assumed you meant the update from 5.2.5 to 5.2.8, but did you mean the Instant Update 001 for Lucid 5.2.8?

I just did that, and when it ran the test sound it made a woof-woof sound.

Hopefully some expert can advise.

One would think that if your sound card is detected it would work?
