majorfoo,

As an aside, did you note that 01micko has compiled the new Openoffice 3.4 for both Lucid and Slacko:

Haven't tried the new Ooo yet, but it's good to know that the project has escaped from Oracle, and that Apache is moving forward with new code.

Majorfoo, Good news indeed. Thanks.



Could you provide pet or sfs on the latest libreoffice?
This could be used now in lieu of updated versions of lucid/libreoffice.

thanks

Sure enough. Thanks to shinobar and Bigpup for catching it. It makes me feel better about using Google Chrome (which has flashplayer built-in) -> http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=630570#630570

Brand new computers can be a problem for Lucid. If a little tinkering doesn't help, as Bigpup suggests, then it may be a driver issue. If so, then a newer Puppy would be the answer.
I would recommend either of the 4 following distros (all of these, save 1, are "beta", but function well with excellent performance and stability on new PCs)
  1. 64bit
  2. 32bit
And, there are others (like Exprimo, etc.) in Puppyland, as well.

My definition on "full feature" relates to their ability to support newer (since 2006) technology in the LAN, OOTB, and full-featured Office offering built-in with JAVA.

Here to help

Oscar Talks, You were right. I don't know what happened. It should be OK now. Here's the link again -> http://www.diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/audacious-3.2.3-2.pet

thanks.

Make sure you have the latest version of Lupu. 5.2.8.005

Try this:
Quote:
Sound muted on boot. Right-click the speaker icon in the system tray and choose Full Window. Enable Master, PCM, Front and any others that seem likely and also turn up the volume in each. This should fix things a good percentage of the time. If not, then please try Menu -> Setup -> Alsa Sound Wizard.

If no sound, open Menu -> Multimedia -> Alsamixer (alsamixer, not alsawizard). Press F6 and that will show you what sound devices have been detected and configured. If yours is not the top one then arrow down and click it, then make sure everything plausible is turned up. I have to do this with my “second” sound card (an M-Audio). Then to play through the M-Audio I use Audacious but one can also use Pmusic and any other audio player that allows you to choose which device to play through. I have to this also with my M-Audio and I use Audacious -> File -> Preferences -> Output Plugin Preferences to choose the card I want.

If none of this works, then try alsawizard. The thing about alsawizard is that after it runs there is only one device configured--if that is the device you want then good, otherwise .....

It is a nice player so thanks for chasing up the wma stream functionality thing.

hi everyone, i'm sorry to ask you all.
yesterday i bought a new acer aspire 4830z. but it's no sound and lupu can't detect my webcam when i open my guvcview.

dpup and slacko can handle my sound, but sometimes my screen going to black.
can anyone tell me how to get sound and webcam in lupu 528 in my acer aspire 4830?

thanks.

@ sunburnt,

I don't know about Saluki022 which jemimah labeled experimental. I'm still running 021. Although the ISO is 130 megs, if you exclude adrive and the files needed to boot from a CD the rest is shy of 87 megs.
And while I agree with you in preferring self-contained SFSes*, I am unaware of any Saluki pet which conflicts with any other Saluki pet. Consequently, I don't know of any way an SFS built from Saluki pets will conflict with any other SFS built from Saluki pets.

* I prefer what Playdaz referred to as "Program Folders" a couple of years back, since they are "self-contained".
