PostPosted: Sun 04 Sep 2005, 12:51    Post subject:  QneXt Instant Messenger  

Qnext is a multi-platform instant messenger. It integrates just about everything one
could want or need out of an instant messenger.
Examples, Qnext does Qnext, AIM, Yahoo, MSN, ICQ, IRC, all encrypted!
Qnext does audio chat. Qnext does video conferencing.
Qnext does photo sharing. Qnext does file-transfer up to any size you can dream!
Qnext does file-sharing. Qnext does group text chat. Qnext does online gaming.
Qnext does remote pc access. Qnext does music streaming, listen to your buddies
music without downloading.
Qnext is pretty cool, it takes advantage of P2P.
And would be ideal for puppy foundation members and developer's sharing code
and improving apps.
It is bulky, it can be used on dial-up.
This will put an executable in my-roxapps
For more help on using go to
Website = www.qnext.com
Forum = http://forum.qnext.com/

This will install everything in /usr/local/qnext
To use it.
This will put an executable in /root/my-applications/bin/
named qnext

This is very nice. Smile

It also requires java? I think so as it seems to use jar files. I did download it about a week ago decided it was a bit big and slow for Puppy - however as a way of doing voice conferencing - I think we should explore - it seems very similar (in functionality) to "Trillian"

OK I am on line for a while so if anyone wants to try out the Qnext audio conference - look for Lobster aka Ed Jason . . .
I may not be intelligible (nothing new there) as I have been fasting all day for no good reason . . .

Now I will try and sort out the IRC component - we have the settings on the wiki
here
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/PuppyLinuxIRC

Wait a minute . . . does it do IRC? - does ICQ . . .
yep it has IRC - but could not connect to #puppylinux Sad

Will try again later

I've tried installing this a couple of times and it never works. No directory /usr/local/qnext/ is created, and the binary doesn't do anything when clicked on. Broken dotpup maybe?

It's a shame, cause the GAIM 1.02 packaged with Puppy is vastly out of date (1.5 is current, and 2.0 is expected very soon), so I was hoping Qnext might fill in some of the missing functions.

If you are using a live-cd chances are this might not work, as it
weighs about 100mb. So that maybe your problem ?
Give more detail, as I tested the dotpup and it works fine.
If you go into root/my-applications/bin/

there is an executable named qnext press that & whalla qnext works.
This requires java !!!
If you want drag the executable qnext to the desktop

No, I installed Java first Smile

I've tried it on both a Live CD, and on an NTFS install, and neither time did the dotpup install correctly. So, went to the Qnext website and installed from the archive file, which is basically unzipping it into the root directory (not to be confused with /root btw.)

You can't leave it there, or it will vanish on reboot, so I moved the whole qnext directory to /root, and now Qnext will run. Of course it locks up the computer pretty quickly. Seems to be related to sound, and I recall I had the same problem with GAIM until I started using the console beep instead of other sounds... which were kind of annoying anyway, so I don't miss them.

Thanks for the response, I do appreciate the help.

PostPosted: Thu 03 Nov 2005, 15:03    Post subject: Qnext - will not run  

Hi klhr

I'm very excited about Qnext as it will get me to my final destination - becoming Windows independent by installing videoconferencing. (Now my Canon A400 does work by using gtkcam - great!)

I downloaded and installed Qnext dotpup and when I click on qnext on /root/my-applications/bin nothing will happen at all. What am I doing wrong?

Also am looking for a safe and quick way of installing spca5xx Labtec webcam drivers on my Puppy 1.0.5... any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and congratulations on great work done.

Cheers

Gonçal

Do you have java installed ?
I'm glad people are telling me there is an error, but I have tested the dotpup
very thouroughly and find nothing wrong.

The only thing I can think of is that you are using a live-cd, or pupfile,
or a multi-session. I know nothing of those three. So tell me what you are
running puppy from, via pup001, cd, multi-session, usb, flash ?

As far as the driver goes spca thingy, We are still waiting for someone to compile it in the kernel hopefully we can get enough people to bug barry
about it as it weighs nothing.

Get back with me.

klhr

thanks yet again. Using pup001 method. Large enough, right now 111MB free out of 700MB total. No idea whether I have a swap file enabled or not. pup001 resides on a FAT32 partition with 5GB free.

I think rarsa found a spca5xx-module?
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=2025&highlight=mercury

Before i've read that threat, I tried to compile one, but got an error
# make
grep: /lib/modules/2.4.29/build/include/linux/autoconf.h: No such file or directory
grep: /lib/modules/2.4.29/build/include/linux/autoconf.h: No such file or directory
Compiling drivers/usb/spcadecoder.c
Compiling drivers/usb/spca5xx.c
drivers/usb/spca5xx.c: In function `spca50x_read_proc':
drivers/usb/spca5xx.c:1269: error: structure has no member named `snap_enabled'
drivers/usb/spca5xx.c: At top level:

drivers/usb/spca5xx.c:143: warning: `contrast' defined but not used
make: *** [drivers/usb/spca5xx.o] Error 1

Maybe I have no kernel-modules installed, I'm loosing overview over my puppies Rolling Eyes

took the source from here:
http://mxhaard.free.fr/download.html

So just try Rarsa's compiled module.

See, I have no idea about FAT32 or anything so it might have something to do with that ? We will see what kinda responses we get.

Edit for MU response below

I will follow your lead, you are more knowledgeable.

You should not need a new Kernel, as it is just a module.

modprobe videodev
modprobe spca5xx

That should do it.
The readme of the source sais, the Kernel-source is needed for compilation, but it is not changed.
So the 2 modules should work with the existing kernel (as far as I understood it).

I have installed it in puppy 0.9 and it seems to work except the audio .
(I have no webcam so I donn't know about this) . Any Idea why ?
I have run the buildin device probes but that doesn't help .
I have a AD1885 builtin sound card from Analogdevice's .
Is the sound working by someone with the same sound card(chip) .
Other things as play xGine and mp3 works fine .

Be sure to read Rarsas Postings.
They are very detailed:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?p=12042#12042

You must extract the driver, use this command after downloading it:
cd /root
tar -xzvf spca5xx.tar.gz

PostPosted: Fri 11 Nov 2005, 16:17    Post subject: qnext up and running  

Hi klhr

Qnext does work on my system, problem was my reduced version of Java which I now replaced with the right one (JVM included with Mercury).

I am now in the process of trying to get videoconference with someone else. My webcam is activated by the spca5xx drivers and I have been already using it with Mercury. The webcam slows down Mercury quite a lot, so I am eager to see what the cam does to Qnext.
