Subject description: Picture Management
 

This is the actual Beta of picasa 3.0 as an sfs-file.

Download: http://www.mediafire.com/aragon-puppy (~ 30 MB)

you'll find a zip-file which contains the sfs and the checksum.

sfs-usage !!!frugal installs!!! (from: http://www.puppylinux.com/development/package-management.htm):

Quote:
Download any SFS file to /mnt/home (the same place as your "pup_save" personal storage file), run the BootManager (in the System menu) to select or deselect what SFS files you want to use, reboot Puppy and its ready to go.


Note that picasa needs a large save-File.

This is BETA-software.

NOTE: DON'T USE IT WITH 4.2 OR NEWER. MIGHT CRASH YOUR SYSTEM ON THIS VERSIONS.

cheers
aragon

hi haidi,

- which version are you running? if other than 400 you had to rename the sfs according to your version.
- Go to System > Bootmanager
>> - Choose which extra-sfs...
>> - check if either the picasa-sfs is on the right pane or'ignore...' is ticked.
- did you extract the zip and place the *.sfs file from the zip at /mnt/home?
- open rxvt and run 'picasa' and look what's happening.

please report back your results.

cheers
aragon

See the little TV screen - Console - with the right pointing arrow > at the top centre of the desktop.
Click on it. A blank box will appear with a # in the top left corner. Just type in whatever command is needed, in this case - picasa. Press Return.

yes, i think i know. the keyword is "full install".

the instruction for using sfs-files is for frugal installs.

as i don't know anything about full installs (and sfs-usage with it), please use

http://wellminded.com/puppy/pupsearch.html

to search for a solution.

cheers
aragon

I changed to a "Frugal" installation and Picasa could be installed with one little change:

The sfs file name has to be changed to match the installed Puppy version...(in my case Puppy 411)
instead: picasa-BETA-b57....._400.sfs I had
to use: picasa-BETA-b57....._411.sfs

I can only start it from the console.
How can I get a Desktop launcher or an entry in either >Menu >Graphics or >Documents?

I've had success creating desktop shortcuts using this technique, which I'll try when I get home and download the Picasa sfs:

* On a command line, use the "which" command:
Code:
# which picasa
/some/path/spec/picasa


* Open a filer window to show the contents of the path.

* Drag the picasa program to the desktop, which will create a shortcut.

* Optional: find an appropriate icon and set using some option available by right-clicking the shortcut.

To install sfs-files in a Full HD Installation of Puppy411 I followed the instructions which I got from Dougal:
Just open a terminal in the directory where you have the SFS file (I prefer /tmp) and run:

Code:
modprobe squashfs
mount -o loop filename.sfs /mnt/data
cd /mnt/data
cp -a * /
cd /
umount /mnt/data


I used this to install Picasa 3.0 Beta and OpenOffice 3.0.
In both cases the installation went flawless, and both programs work excellent!

PS:

You can actually turn it into a script very easily.
Create a new script (right-click in Rox, then New-->Script) and put that code (above) into it but replace the sfs-file name with "$1".
Then put it in /root/my-applications/bin.
Then all you need to do to install an sfs is run it with the sfs as a parameter:
Code:
scriptname.sh my_sfs_file.sfs

Thank you RobertB for introducing me to the "which" command to quickly find the file for dragging out for a shortcut. Now I don't have to use Pfind and sift through all of its output to find the file for a shortcut.

Thank you aragon for this sfs application and introducing me to this sfs feature.

I've been getting along with Fotoxx and Printoxx but still missing my favorite Windows photo editor, Picasa. Thanks to you I now have it simply and, nicely, it is a separate entity, kind of like in the old DOS days where the apps were in their own directories. This aspect is great.

Are there any other sfs applications available for Puppy? I would like to see a list with sources if any.

The ultimate one (sfs) for me would be a Power Point Viewer. So far I have held back from installing all of the Pet packages to have one. I upload ppt and pps to www.zoho.com and still loose presentation items. I noticed that the free Windows Power Point Viewer from Microsoft is a pretty big file. But as an sfs this would be no problem just copying it to the hard drive or whatever storage one is using.

When I run Picasa on Puppy 4.2 Full installation it really gives the CPU a hammering. Most of the time it is running at 100%. It works OK, although a bit slow.

Is there a tip to increase speed or is this a legacy of Wine?

For the people having trouble mounting the Picasa SFS file with a full installation, simply click on the SFS to mount it then copy the directories over from the mounted file to the respective directories on the full install. You might end up with something like /opt/opt/google/picasa but it will still run.
