Hi tallboy,

Thanks for reporting the missing PcurlFtp installation.

If I understand correctly, PcurlFtp requires Curlftpfs, Mpscan, Pure-ftpd, and Rox.

I can add PcurlFtp to the next release of stretch 7.5.

Concerning the webcam in your Dell E6230, are you saying it is not defined in the lsusb report of PupSysInfo?

For example, PupSysInfo shows my webcam as follows:

(PSI -> Devices -> USB Devices -> Complete)
Code:
Bus 001 Device 003:
 ID = 0402:9665 ALi Corp. Gateway Webcam
 USB Version = 2.00
 Manufacturer = XPA5J1FH8
 Product = 1.3M WebCam
 Max Current = 500mA

If you prefer a complete usb report, go to a terminal and enter lsusb -v

PcurlFtp already has an entry in the Network menu.

From pupsysinfo and PupCamera digital camera access in the Graphic menu. The camera works in Windows 10.

@tallboy,

To access the static content (images) acquired by a portable digital camera/phone/tablet, the following apps may be helpful:

1 - Menu -> Graphic -> PupCamera digital camera access
2 - Menu -> Graphic -> Gtkam camera manager
3 - Menu -> Filesystem -> Connect your android phone (MTP Device)
4 - Alternatively, you could install CamPhoneTab - USB interface for cameras/phones/tablets

---

On the other hand, to acquire and manage images/videos via the built-in webcam of your Dell Latitude E6230 laptop, you could install the uvc-compliant Guvcview which is available in the Puppy Package Manager.

I updated the PaleMoon 28.2.2 to the latest 28.4.1, and it crashed on opening a log-in window. (reported in palemoon forum). I copied the 28.2.2 in the non-save-file version presented by Lick, saved it to /opt/, and everything works again.

I haven't encountered any problems of that type with 28.4.1 so far. I'm running the 4.1.48 kernel version of RC4.

Well, it seems that I actually stumbled onto a real bug! Confused

The Dpup is installed using Lick in Windows 10. After I discovered that the upgraded Palemoon chrashed, I deleted it from /opt/, and also the prefs directory /root/.moonchild productions/, and the /root/.cache/moonchild productions/ dir. I then copied the PM 28.2.2 from the non-save-file version of Dpup, from the Lick boot menu, and pasted it to /opt/.
But, since the Dpup .sfs'es are stored read-only, it means that the original Palemoon 28.2.2 is still in there somewhere. Can the original 28.2.2 be revived, or do I have to continue to use the one I installed? (and which I believe is saved to the save-file?) Maybe a nooby question, but I am not familiar with frugal installs.

Hi tallboy,

For frugal installations of Dpup Stretch, the original Palemoon folder is here:

/initrd/pup_ro2/opt/palemoon

Thank you. Can I just copy it to /opt? Or make a symlink?

I have another nooby question: I have compiled the latest ImageMagick-7 in Dpup Stretch-7.5, and ran it's test program without fail. A fantastic program! But the final step, installation, spread it's files all over the place.
Are you familiar with a good recipe somewhere in the forum, on how to make an .sfs and/or a .pet from a program I compile myself? I would like to publish them for download here.
EDIT: I found it in the Wikka! Very Happy
But it is quite old info...

dir2sfs, dir2pet, and new2dir are still present. I havn't used them in years, but they are worth a try. If it fails, you can use:
make DESTDIR=/somedirectory install
then mksquashfs <options> /somedirectory

Evening, radky/everybody.

Now, then. I'm a-thinking about giving this a look-see. Coupla questions.....

Are the DPups stuck with using .deb packages only, or can they also use .pets/SFSs/run 'portables', etc?

Following a response from Foxpup, do they make use of the Debian repos.....even though, apparently, 'sudo apt-get install' isn't needed? Do they use something similar to the PPM?

Would my 'portable'-Mozilla browsers (based on Fred's Quantum-portable) run in this? (Can't think of any reason why they shouldn't, but it'd be nice to have confirmation, like..!)

And, most important of all.....does it run as root, or as a 'user' only?


Mike. Wink
