Sure. See enclosed.

When I open HOME directory, I can see the file, and it's got a nice pdf icon on it. But it won't open.

I have 1 GB of memory, so it's not an issue.

I even opened xpdf, transferred the file to the xpdf directory (usr/local/bin) to open, and it won't do it.

It's happened for a few pdfs, so I don't think it's a problem with the files. My MD5 checksum for inferno is OK.

(The pdf files open ok with epdfviewer on puppy)

I'm running inferno as a livecd at the moment. I wonder if it's a memory issue. I also couldn't install the adobe reader because it's bigger than storage memory available.

Oh, the file is available http://www.remisiers.org/research//SIN-HealthcareSec-291107%5Bcimb%5D.pdfhere

Hmm.. I think it's a memory issue with running inferno as a livecd.

I tried to open a downloaded excel file, and Calc crashed.

I have only been using inferno (444 MB). Downloaded epdfview via PUPget, but it then said epdfview needs a dependency, and then didn't open.

Are you running inferno as a livecd?

I'm sure the smaller 3.01a will work, but I really want inferno 444MB to work well as a livecd.

Anyone having similar problems?

Interesting. I downloaded epdfview from your link above (running Inferno as livecd), and again the pdf would not open.

I used the pupget dependency check and here's the error:

These dependencies required by Epdfview-0.1.5 package are missing:
File /usr/bin/epdfview has these missing library files:
libpoppler-glib.so.1

The PETget package manager does not know what package/s has/have these libraries.

In that case try this http://puppyfiles.org/dotpupsde/dotpups/Libraries/Poppler-0.5.3.pup
and then give it a try. This should match your missing libs after that it should work fine

Tux^2,

The libraries fixed it! File associations working (previously, when you click a pdf link on firefox, there's no default pdf reader).

So, I think this is something to do for Inferno next release.

Another thing: embedded music player in firefox. If you go to www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows and then try and launch one of the streams, it won't play. Clicking the firefox embedded link launches VLC... and then nothing. Reconfiguring the .ra default player to realplayer won't run it either. I suspect this is a problem with firefox and not fire hydrant, but it's just another issue I discovered.

This is already my fav puppy derivative. Good work, ttuuxxx

Thanks for that, I love to hear good thing about the work I've done, really its taken me hundreds of hours trying to make this this derivative work properly, from building my own buttons, backgrounds and some icons, then learning how to configure things, then the building and maintaining the website, etc its been a long road and its nice when you get kind words and thanks.Smile

as for .ra not working thats a strange thing, Have you tried the embedded media player selector i added to firefox? its in the tools menu and its called "MediaPlayerConnectivity" you can read about it here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/446
its one of the most amazing addons for Firefox next to fireftp which is that blue snail looking thing up-top on your browser. Anyways the tools menu is fool of fun stuff.
Have a nice day:)
