Hi TTuuxxx.Thanks for your quick response.I am a rank amateur when it comes to anything Linux and only found out about LiveCDs a mere few days ago and after Dling and running Puppy (Dingo) ,I must say I was astonished ! In fact I haven't booted brand x since then and there may be some irregularities but if there are,I haven't seen them yet.I am open to any suggestions to get recording capabilities and any distro that has these capabilities is just fine with me or way to add them.Thanks for the search engine tip but it may be a bit premature as my learning curve falls way short at the moment and had not plinej done all the heavy lifting with Audacity,I probably would still be scratching my head.Anyway I will have a look and see what happens.I have already shot myself in the foot several times but what the heck,Like they say down in Oz,No worries ! Mate! Wink I will keep an eye out and see what develops.thanks,bill

Subject description: Strange goings on with Slackware downloads
 

Hi All, First ,Please understand I am a newbie and this is just a report on my findings trying to get "Ardour" using "Gslapt"
I Dled Gslapt and installed ,it seemed to go right in.I was required to re-boot in order to see it in the menu.
I opened "Gslapt" went through the update twice I think typing in Ardour in the.search box.Finally ardour appeared,I highlighted it and set about Dling it.Everything went fine to completion but I couldn't see anything of it.Nothing !

If you hit "Edit" then "preferences" .in Gslapt the default directory is '/var/slapt-get' but for some reason I couldn't find anything of it in that directory.

So going through the motions several times,I didn't get any joy.

So I decided I would change the default directory from /var/slapt-get to /root/my-applications/bin/ and gave it another go.Presto ,all the files can be seen in that directory.Now why this happened ,I don't have a clue,but anyway you certainly can't do anything,if you can't find the files.
I have a sneaking suspicion that the "Gslapt.pet" doesn't have all the required dependents or it is an anomalie of Gslapt trying to work in Puppy (Dingo) 4. I'll leave this up to you Gurus because this is way past me.cheers,bill

Hi Bil,l as Gslapt goes, just about everything will install and work on puppy 4.0, Around 10% won't, I'll look at the ardour later on.
But what I did manage to get working on puppy 4.0 Is MuseScore with all the menu icons, Buttttttttt it only runs from Console for some strange reason, if anyone can fix that I would be more than happy, It took me about 8 different compiles before I got it this good Smile
I Just uploaded it today http://www.puppylinux.ca/tpp/ttuuxxx/alphatesting/Musescore-0.9.2.pet
just open console and type mscore
don't worry about the missing dependences when installing, its all there just that all the QT4 files are in /opt when the install manager is looking in /lib and /usr/lib and not /opt.
ttuuxxx enjoy
Ps as soon as someone figures out the menus start thing I'll Officially release it.

PostPosted: Thu 16 Oct 2008, 00:46    Post subject: Installing Virtual Keyboard on Puppy 4.1  

I am not sure if this string is too old to continue but here goes.

I have tried to install VirtualKeyboard on Puppy 4.1. Also installed TclTk8.4 . They both seem to install ok and i get a menu entry but it won't work.

Just wanted to check that there are not incompatibilities between the programme and the os and I am not attempting the impossible.

All i need is a simple frequency generator to make sure i am singing the right note and i am on rather slow dial up so cannot download anything over a few MB.

Thanks.

you might need tk also.

if that doesn't work type:

vkeybd

in a shell and report back any errors.

PostPosted: Fri 17 Oct 2008, 19:45    Post subject: Virtual Keyboard  

Thanks John doe for replying. Here is the situation:

Virtual keyboard and TclTk8.4 have installed into /usr/local. Also according to instructions earlier in this thread (james bond April 22 2007), I copied /usr/local/TclTk8.4/lib to /usr/lib.

/usr/local/TclTk8.4 contains a file called "Choose TclTk-Version". The options include 8.4 and 8.4-Tls. Clicking on 8.4-Tls produces a message that it has been activated ok. It installs a file called tls. Clicking on 8.4 produces a message to say this version is not installed.

When I type "Vkeybd" into the terminal, I get
Vkeybd: Command not found.
when I type in "VirtualKeyboard", I get
vkeybd: error while loading shared libraries: libtk8.4.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I didn't install tk, mainly because I couldn't find a download that looked right.
However /usr/local/TclTk8.4/lib contains files called tcl8.4 and tk8.4. It also contains the above libtk8.4.so and when I attempt to open it with Geany, I get a message to the effect that it cannot be opened.

I tried replacing libtk8.4.so with one from at puppylinux.ca but this was marked "there is an error in file" and did not improve things. Other libtk8.4.so downloads seemed to be os specific.

Thanks, Russell.

Has anyone made a .PET package of JACK2 ?

Jack2 (also known as Jackdmp) is a much improved version of JACK with better performance and reliability.

The current version of Jack2 is 1.9.1. More information and the source code can be found at
http://www.jackaudio.org/

The latest version available for us Puppy users (and musicians) is the old crusty 0.116.1 Sad

Is there anyone capable of making a JACK2 package? maybe ttuuxxx? Smile
