Hi CP,

Thanks for the feedback. Yes I posted earlier how to prevent Seamonkey updates.

Quote: "update-settings,ini, updater and updater.ini - Seamonkey 2.46 works fine without them."

Mmm I'll look at an osmo .pet (the ones from pup 4 repo do but may be a later one would be cool.

Thanks Mike for the .pets. Especially the Dog one - I must bone up on how the program works.

Subject description: Ammended Seamonkey without updater
 

Ammended Seamonkey for those who wish to not have Seamonkey udpate as it will update to a gtk3 version which won't run - so updater is removed from this version.

Only Osmo I could get working was standard p4 one 0.28 from package manager.

So far, I can't get libreoffice to run on it (I've tried the 4.3.4 pet with jre 6.26).


You're aiming a bit too new with that one! Try the 3.5.3 package. It fires up without any complaints whatsoever. I use this one in many of my older Pups, interspersed with occasional installs of OpenOffice 3.5 - this was around the time the two projects split & went their separate ways.

---------------------------------

Mornin', Darren. Couple more for you.

Geoffrey's statically-compiled Tintii & UrbanLightScape.....these more for the photography bunch, as they were originally Photoshop plug-ins until the guys at indii.org turned them into a pair of stand-alone apps.

You can find links for both here:-

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=803017&sid=3fde3c0b9ffc6aea240ee04d8ec2e60c

And Smokey01 put together a very simple little voice recorder, which makes use of the default 'aplay' & 'arecord' commands that are part of every Pup's ALSA install. You can find the link for S.V.R-1.1 in the middle of a PSIP thread from 2011, here:-

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=567012#567012

(As with all Grant's stuff, it just 'works'.....and 'does what it says on the tin'!)

Mike, thanks for the suggestion re Libreoffice 3.5.3 - I'll give it a try. I'll also try Darry's Osmo pet. Thanks both.

Evening, Darren.

Got a bunch more for you here; these I've tested, and they do work. (Sorry about the pair from Geoffrey; they fired up, so I went 'Yay!', and posted). Didn't have time to do owt with 'em; they do take a bit of fine tuning to work properly..! Embarassed

Anyways; here we go.....

Audacious 'Classic'. I really have no idea where I found this one, but it's playing as I type this! This one doesn't have the standard 'big' GTK interface, it has the neat little WinAmp-style one. Everything's present & correct, though, and all works as it should. This one's coming from my MediaFire a/c:-

http://www.mediafire.com/file/f8mch4z7k0069qs/audacious_classic_1.2.3-4_i386.pet/file

--------------------------------------------------------

Don570's Bacon Recorder. Grab the older 3.1 .pet at the bottom of the first post. Current version is around 4.9, if memory serves. This works fine, once you've got the correct sound card, etc, set-up. Again, it's using 'arecord' & 'aplay'.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=69237

------------------------------------------------------------

LibreCAD 2.06. I believe it was muggins who put this one together - either him or Smithy - but I do remember it was buried away in the middle of a thread about something else entirely! Even the Google Custom Search that's kicking around the Forum can't unearth it. I've been using this on & off for ages; it fires straight up in 431 (quite surprised me, it did!), and runs without issue. So, I'll share this one from MediaFire again:-

http://www.mediafire.com/file/xfgh1y5aocyyeyh/LibreCAD-2.06.pet/file

---------------------------------

Now this next one's definitely by muggins, no mistake. XVKBD, the virtual keyboard.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=37194

Muggins originally posted this in the form of a .pet, and 2 or 3 add-on 'extra' .pets. I don't think I ever posted about this, but I did my usual trick of tearing them all down, bundling it all together in one, and doing a re-pack. I never see the point in publishing dozens of tiny .pets for something - install this, followed by this (make sure this is installed before that)....arrgh, does my flamin' head in, it does. Actually, I do an awful lot of re-packing for personal use, with the object of speeding up future installs for myself. I often combine half-a-dozen things into one, single, click-to-install item.....

http://www.mediafire.com/file/fb5nbxvs0u4xin4/xvkbd-3.1.pet/file

------------------------------------------------------

This next one really surprised me. It's Micko's compile & pack of LuvcView, another webcam app. You can find this one, v0.2.6, in the Slacko14 repo at Ibiblio:-

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko14/luvcview-0.2.6-i486-s.pet

It's even smaller than VideoView, actually - less than 50 kb - and, again, it fires straight up in 431. This one also records AVI files.

------------------------------------------------------

And finally (phew, he says..!), another media player.....SMPlayer, my favourite. This is the package that was built for Lucid originally ( 0.6.8 ); I forget the character's forum handle, but it's the guy who made a huge fuss & stink over something inconsequential several years ago, along with half-a-dozen 'cronies' backing-up his every pronouncement, and finally stormed off and started his own website. You probably remember the guy better than I do.

I originally found this at PuppyLinuxFAQ, but the website has been 'down' for re-building for something like the last 2 or three years! Rolling Eyes

You can get this from the Lucid packages repo at Ibiblio:-

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/Smplayer-0.6.8-Lucid.pet

********************

Since SMPlayer is really a 'front end' for MPlayer - and won't play without it - I grabbed the MPlayer 1.0rc2 package from the Ibiblio 'pet-packages-4' repo, along with the full codecs .pet:-

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-4/mplayer-1.0rc2-071007-1.pet

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-4/mplayer_codecs_full-20071007.pet

Even then, it wants just a couple more libs before it'll play ball; it needs libcdda-interface, and libcdda-paranoia. Fortunately, y'see, this is where having an entire kennel-full of Pups comes in handy! I 'poached' these from my Racy 5.5 install, and made up a wee .pet for the missing libs, which can be found here:-

http://www.mediafire.com/file/4f2f5kv4xs82e8x/SMPlayer-0.6.8-extra_libs.pet/file

So:- install the extra libs first, then install MPlayer 1.0rc2 (this is the command-line variant, not Gnome-MPlayer with the GUI), followed finally by SMPlayer 0.6.8. All things being equal, SMPlayer will fire up and give sterling service; it may be an old version, but it's still very useful. I've been using it for quite a while in Racy, so I can vouch for it's 'usability'.

Before I go, here's my current 'take' on Puppy 4.3.11 w/glibc219 'tweak':-

[Click to enlarge]





Not quite up to my usual standards, perhaps, but I feel it's in keeping with this Puppy's vintage.....complete with on-screen 'sticky-note', to remind me of a couple of important events over the next month or two! Also courtesy of Fred's 'GifonDesktop' stuff, which will work equally well with static GIF images, as well as animated ones.....

Sorry for the length of this post, but I've got the bit between my teeth, now, an' I'm 'on a roll'..... Very Happy Everything was done in 4.3.11 tonight; it's still a remarkably usable, fun Puppy, for an 'oldie'. I'm impressed.


Mike. Wink

Audacious Classic - That would have been from the 412 Collection - Tuxtoo's site now run by Mikeb and dave64.

I actually made that one from real old debian Sources - Debian Etch - I think.

First package I ever made for 412.

Subject description: Libreoffice 4.4.2.2 for Pup 4 for testing
 

https://archive.org/download/pup4.311glibc2.19palemoon2.794sserev1/libreoffice-4.4.2.2-i586-1_ejt.pet

Ok this is interesting I remember an old post about Libreoffice 4 - later versions not running in Pup4's well here is the thread....... Back in time we go:).........
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=85915&start=45

From this page onwards ac2011 and Mikeb discuss trying to get Libreoffice 4.1 running on Pup 4.12 and they come up with the idea of taking gcc_s.so1 - so from reading Vicmz's thread I learned to place the gcc lib in /opt/libreoffice4.4/program folder.

I found with this Pup I also needed from xorg_xorg_full-dri-7.3 .pet libGLU.so.1 and libGLU.so.1.3.060502 having tried to run Libreoffice from commandline.

So in summary with this Libreoffice .pet you can place required libs in program folder.



I made this .pet from a slackware pkg from pkgs.org. I ajusted the xdg menu to suit Puppy.

Like I said in title in needs testing by others, not test jre as I don't use it. Basically if it is a fail I will remove it.

Morning, Darren.

Hmm.... So ya like my 'sexy desktop', do ya? Very Happy Shocked Laughing Laughing

It's a very long-standing hobby of mine, mate. Dates back to my college days, when I used to put together promotional posters'n'stuff for the school's theatre productions, and for a couple of impromptu rock bands some of the seniors had got going.

I've got the interest; I've got the tools (one in particular, PhotoScape 3.7, by MooiTech, which runs perfectly under WINE - so I always have that installed)....plus, I know exactly how to use them.

I do this with every Pup. First, I get the Pup installed. Then, I install everything I want to use. Third, I get stuck into major 'customization', so I can access stuff in the way I like; desktop shortcuts, tray launchers, notification area shortcuts to various utilities, personalised custom themes, etc. And finally, I run up a new background, including my home-made 'docks', and places to put specific items.....like my 'Info & Utilities' area, which is always over on the right side of the screen somewhere.

I've lucked out with 431 with regards to WINE; it's one of the Pups version2013 used to actually compile in for a lot of releases up until around the beginning of the 3-series. So I've got a lot to choose from; I'm currently using 1.7.51, under which PhotoScape runs without a murmur.

---------------------------------------

Talking of FF45esr, I've just remembered summat; I'm glad you've reminded me, 'cos I'd forgotten all about it. When watchdog published his .pet for PM 27.9.4 with the glibc-219 'tweak', I downloaded it and had a real good look at how he'd achieved it. (Sorry, watchdog,it's 'poaching', I know.....but it's unreal the number of times you see the same snippets of code getting re-used again & again over the years for various different things, by various different people.)

I think many of us who package stuff tend to re-use an awful lot of Puppy code, if we're truthful.

Anyway, by studying watchdog's technique, and combining it with the way in which Fred's constructed the 'portable' FF-Quantum packages, I spent a couple of days experimenting with things, and one of the items I put together was a glibc-tweaked portable version of FF45esr. And here it is, running in 4.3.11 just a few minutes ago:-





I also assembled a 'portable', glibc-tweaked PM 27.9.4, and a 'portable', glibc-tweaked Thunderbird 45. I'm currently running my own portable versions of these in 4.3.11, from a remote partition, via custom Menu entries.....simply because they've already got my profiles set-up how I want them. No disrespect to your built-in version of PM 27.9.4..!

If anybody's interested, I'll post a link for the portable, 'tweaked' FF45esr package in a little bit; I don't think I've uploaded this one yet, and it's on the very drive that 4.3.11 can't access, so it'll mean a re-boot into another Pup for that.

(In case you're wondering how I got the screenshot, my working version is on a partition 4.3.11 can access.....but the tarballed 'package' isn't.....)

Okay. In Slacko 560 ATM, from where I've got no problems accessing all me Puppy stuff....

Right. If anybody's interested in this FF45ESR w/glibc-219 'tweak'-'portable', here's the link:-

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aQe2QmFnnT6nPJQac4Q-rPwfQpHN7Ojq/view?usp=sharing

As with all the portables, untar it; move the resulting 'firefox32' directory to wherever you like - outside of Puppy-space, naturally! - and start it from the 'ff' script inside. You can drag this to the desktop and use it as a launcher.

First run, it creates a sub-directory called 'profile', and then creates the profile itself within. Second and subsequent runs, so long as you always start from the 'ff' launcher, it will always use the profile from inside that sub-directory.

Which is what makes it 'portable', of course.....

Enjoy.
