Google Chrome 19 SFS

Here's an SFS of Google Chrome 19 for anyone prefers an SFS browser. After installing you will need to use the Browser Chooser to select Chrome as the default. It is the same as the pet of Chrome 19-2. You place it in /mnt/home and then use Bootmanager or SFS-Load-on-the-fly to install it.

[moved from mistaken location in parent topic "Puppy Projects"]

using Dell 17" LC D monitor at 1024x768, vesa driver
with nvidia video hardware.

1) the text labels of the hard disk partition icons ("sda1", "sda2" etc)
extend into the taskbar space and are partially or completely
overwritten by the taskbar. Strangely, this doesn't happen to fd0.

2) icons for usb drives initially appear each above and half-
overlapping a hard disk partition icon (and/or fd0, can't remember).

Notes: 1) my previous lucid (511) didn't have this problem on this
monitor, but rest of hardware incl video driver was different;
2) This machine has about 9 total hard drive partitions
formatted for filesystems.
3) the first-run setup told me I could have a display 1288 (?)
x 1024, but this mode turned out to have the left edge of
the screen image repeated on the right side.
EndOfNotes, resume previous numbering.

3) I seem to have 2 identical copies of the lupu sfs, one in a subdir
(named, from memory, something like "l528005.43") apparently
created by lupu spontaneously, at the top of the install partition,
and one in the subdir created when lupu asked if I wanted to
install to a subdir, then asked me to specify a name.
Similarly, I seem to have 2 (same size but not identical according
to cmp) lupusave.3fs files, in different directories, but lupu never
asks me to choose between them, it just silently picks one.
Neither of these (near-)duplicates is a problem except as a waste
of space in the rather small install partition.

This is my concern also. I've lost a 2sf file in the past because it got filled to the limit.

Do you mean that every one of the last nine times Seamonkey auto-installed an update on my lupu528/ lupupluslibre, it left the previous version's files intact in my 2fs file?

If so, how can I get rid of the redundant files? How much space could I expect to recover if I simply uninstall Seamonkey completely, after saving my passwords and bookmarks, and then installing the 2.10 pet?

Puppy has something for everyone! Shinobar is right--if one uses an sfs-based browser such as his SM, then updating will consume lupusave. I personally don't mind that so much and I prefer that my browser auto-update to stay current--if the browser is installed with a pet then the auto-update will not take any more lupusave space than the pet already takes because it will overwrite files in the pet. Admittedly, the Google Chrome pet for instance does use about 105MB of lupusave.

Same with me.
In Seamonkey 2.9.1 I had auto update set in preferences to only check for updates, but not download and install.
I did the update to 2.10 by help->check for updates.
After the update to 2.10 the preference settings where still set the way I wanted them. So for me, it seems the preferences are not reset, but remembered between updates. Good thing!

If the person making a pet of Seamonkey or Firefox, does not deliberately turn off auto update, then it will be set on by default, when you install the pet.
Mozilla made auto update on the default setting in all of their browsers.
When you install the browser, the first thing it will do is run auto update and if update is found, it will install the update.
For Seamonkey or Firefox auto update settings can be changed in preferences.
(while I was changing the settings for auto update in Seamonkey, it was already downloading the update.)

Could you provide pet or sfs on the latest libreoffice?

The best thing I think I is to get 01micko's get_libreoffice 0.15 so you can continue to update yourself. It will not work with Lupu/Plus Libre however, since Libreoffice is already installed. Here is the thread -> http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=65918

Here is the 3.5.4 sfs -> http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/LibreOffice-3.5.4_en-US.sfs


Thanks for 3.54.sfs.
I d/l the " get_libreoffice-015.pet" and will use on future updates of libreoffice.

This new version is super fast and really enjoying it.

Again, thanks for your assistance. You are always Johnny-on-the-Spot, when I need something.

Not sure what to do about them, especially as you seem to suggest letting them autoinstall to Lupuplus_libre is not a good idea. On one hand, it's surely good to have the latest security fixes, on the other, its preferable to have an installation specifically tested on lupu.

But given the rate of new security updates, I don't expect you could possibly create pets for each them. There seem to have been nine in the past nine months...

I would have just called those the regular SM updates. We did have pets for most of them. The auto update did seem to work OK for me from 2.9 to 2.10. I might suggest installing the 2.10 pet and then watching next time it asks about updating.

Thus my wonderment at Seamonkey upgrade pets for Lucid.

The pets I post contain the latest version of the full Seamonkey. One could uninstall any previous version and then install the new pet. Anyway, I think the safest is to use the Lucid pets. If you got a 3.6MB update from Lucid that would have been a bad download. And I just checked--the Seamonkey update from 2.9 to 2.10 is 21MB, so I am thinking any 3.6MB update would have been a bad download--and so far the SM update looks OK.


You're right about the size. I've just checked the archived SM2.1 file I downloaded, and it's 22MB.

I would certainly have used your pet, had I known about it. Unfortunately, I've been preoccupied lately, and once you've failed to log onto the forums for a few consecutive days, the notices of new posts stop coming to remind you...

One concern I have about these automatic upgrades is that in the past, I've lost all my passwords and had to reconstitute them. More rarely, my bookmarks have been lost in the course of one of these upgrades too.

And they definitely are automatic. I remember quite clearly creating a directory, saving the 2.1 release notes and uninstall_install pages, then clicking on the download tab, seeing the browser's options to open the archive and choosing instead to save the file to disk.

And indeed, the archive is in the new directory, unopened, with the two html pages. No prompt to install the new version ever displayed on my system, yet here it is...

Help/About Seamonkey displays:

Seamonkey


version 2.10




You are currently on the release update channel.



Ouch! Have just discovered the explanation. Sometime in September or earlier (the updates history in Preferences/advanced/installation ends there), when I was still running Lucid 5.2.8_x, there was a security update 2.4.1.

Apparently it, or a previous installation/update, reset my installation preferences, setting all Seamonkey and add-on upgrades and installations to 'automatic'. I know I've never opened this window before, didn't even know about it. So it must have become a default setting in some version of SM. Very disturbing...

The update history shows the automatic installation of SM 'security updates' 2.41, 2.5, 2.6.1, 2.7, 2.7.1, 2.7.2, 2.9, 2.9.1, and 2.10.

I've now unchecked the add-on 'download and install' options, and also the
update ones, but left the option to 'check daily' for updates checked.

Not sure what to do about them, especially as you seem to suggest letting them autoinstall to Lupuplus_libre is not a good idea. On one hand, it's surely good to have the latest security fixes, on the other, its preferable to have an installation specifically tested on lupu.

But given the rate of new security updates, I don't expect you could possibly create pets for each them. There seem to have been nine in the past nine months...

Seamonkey 2.10 for Lucid

http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/Seakonkey-2.10-Lucid.pet


A couple of days ago I opened Seamonkey in lupuplus_libre and instead of seeing the blank page specified in my preferences setting, saw displayed a page of the Seamonkey website showing the features of SM 2.1.

(I should add that this has happened to me before, under Lupu5.2.8_x).

I downloaded the 3.6?MB file to my hard drive, but did nothing else with it, not even extraction, as I wanted to study the features and perhaps read some reviews before deciding to upgrade. However, all this caution proved to be futile.

Soon I started experiencing annoying changes in the browser display, some extremely annoying, such as the irretrievable loss of the tool bar and navigation bar on some pages. In one case I lost all control of the system, including the use of CTL-ALT-DEL to shut down, and had to do a hard power down. And the changes survived the reboot!

Eventually, by trial and error,clicking on various parts of the screen, I discovered I could summon a menu to regain some control and recovered the navigation bar and the tool bar. At that point I clicked on the help tab and discovered that Seamonkey 2.1 was running. Evidently, it had installed itself over the previous version without waiting for any input from me...

Thus my wonderment at Seamonkey upgrade pets for Lucid.

Am I the only user of Lupu5.2.8-x (because the same thing has happened to me with it) or lupuplus_libre to experience this automatic upgrade of Seamonkey?
