Hi,

I found a nice Brightness_control package at http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=114277.

Made some small improvements:

1. Restarting X does not reset the Brightness value
2. Smaller size, no buttons
3. New tray icon toggles the control

Downloadable from http://www.smokey01.com/gjuhasz/packages.

Have fun!

Regards,

gjuhasz

In the meantime, I found a real (battery saving) brightness control method for my HP laptop (HP 250 G6 with Intel HD 520 graphics). It directly controls the backlight instead of the gamma values. The solution is based on https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/backlight

I uploaded a draft Brightness script for Intel HD 520 graphics to http://www.smokey01.com/gjuhasz/packages/. Works fine.

Although this draft is enough for Puli which allows machine-specific configuration for different machines on the same pendrive, I am planning to update this to a bit more complex pet where many graphic cards are handled, and the script utilizes xrandr only for the rest of cards.

Notice that even different Intel cards have different max_brightness values, e.g., 1500 in my G6 but 234 in my son's HP 250 G5 with Intel HD 5500 graphics.

Have fun!

Regards,

The just uploaded Brightness-v2p,pet hopefully handles the brightness for all card types.

Download from http://www.smokey01.com/gjuhasz/packages/.

For all (tested) Intel graphics, it directly controls the backlight using the Intel method. For the rest, as referenced a couple of posts above, it uses xrandr to control the gamma based on the nice method of Mike Walsh,

Have fun!

Subject description: 64-bit system with minor improvements in the feature set
 

Dear Puli users,

Although Puli 6.2.0 still works fine (with updated packages), it seems that many new hardware need 64-bit drivers and some vendors have discontinued their support for 32-bit systems.

So, I decided to publish the 64-bit Puli 7 version which survived more than one year of rigorous testing without any hiccup in various environment.

Will be available in a couple of weeks.

Have fun!

Regards,

Dear Puli users,


I am proud to announce the 64-bit Puli 7.0.

The main files are available at http://smokey01.com/gjuhasz/Puli-7.0_Feb2019/.

Installation instructions and detailed description of the new version can be found at http://smokey01.com/gjuhasz/readme-Puli7.html and on the first page of this forum thread.

External 32/64 bit packages have been moved to the shared folder structure at

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1GTuMK6jq3BCcZhs6sZ2cDUFmGU8pYtlN


Changes beyond the 64-bit upgrade will be added soon. By then, you can find the changes by comparing the readme files of Puli 7 and the earlier Pulis at

http://www.smokey01.com/gjuhasz.


Have fun!

Regards,

Dear Puli users,

The main Puli files are mirrored at

https://sourceforge.net/projects/puppyszoftver/files/Puli/

Kudos to skami, the owner/maintainer of Hungarian gold mines https://sourceforge.net/projects/puppyszoftver/ and https://skamilinux.hu/.


Have fun!

PostPosted: Sat 09 Mar 2019, 21:35    Post subject: Chrome
Subject description: Updated to accept the official Chrome .deb package
 

Dear Puli users,

Now, the 64-bit Puli 7 supports Google Chrome.

You can (smart)load and use the official google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb - Puli runs the latest Chrome (as spot) without any issue.

Only a few files have been changed in Puli, so you don't need to download the whole Puli_install.zip package again.
You can find the changes in the ServicePack folder. Copy the whole structure of the _bootdevice_.zip file to your boot device as follows:
    <boot device>/patch/usr/bin/irrona
    <your boot device>/patch/usr/bin/irronv
    <your boot device>/patch/usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser
    <your boot device>/patch/usr/local/bin/defaulthtmlviewer
    <your boot device>/patch/usr/share/doc/index.html
    <your boot device>/profiles/3-lazy/usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser1
    <your boot device>/profiles/3-lazy/usr/local/bin/defaulthtmlviewer1

Have fun!

Regards,

PostPosted: Sat 16 Mar 2019, 13:33    Post subject: Firefox 65 (Stable) and 67 (Nightly)  

Dear Puli users,

I uploaded the latest stable Firefox package (firefox_65-amd64hu.pet) to

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1saZz9KmygvXKmB1XtCSB-UYHGs3mfNSi

HU version. For other languages, download the appropriate localized .tar.gz (notice that https://www.mozilla.org opens <yourlocale> page automatically) then replace the /opt/firefox folder in my pet file with the downloaded content.

You can (smart)load and use it in Puli 7 and maybe in other Xenial64 based Puppy Linux flavors. Runs as spot with sound, Flash Player supported.

There is a March 15 nightly package (firefox_67-amd64hu.pet) next to it. Same settings, no issues found. You can update it or get another language as written above.

Have fun!

Regards,

gjuhasz
