Well Guys I guess talking to software developers does help Smile
I kept them informed of all the problems we were having and well they fixed most of them and added extras

What's New in Foxit Reader V1.0 for Desktop Linux

==========================================

2. Improved print quality with anti-aliasing feature

3. Add Preview/Next view feature

4. Add Save as feature

Bug Fixes

==========================================

1. Crashed when printing under red hat enterprise linux5

2. Failed to copy and paste the selected text graphics to clipboard under puppyLinux



to use the text copy feature you have to enable it in the menu, the snapshot doesn't work but the text highlight does and you can paste it in abiword and then make your own pdf's, doc etc out of it.
to enable it just click
/tools/text selection tool and hold and drag your left mouse button over the text to copied, Works fine with parcellite, if you need parcellite you can get it from the repo. Maybe you won't haven't tried it without anyways theres a extra locales package for Chinese/Japanese/korean support.
enjoy

Foxit Reader seems to work perfectly on Puppy 4.0.

I read somewhere in this forum "when ttuuxxx makes it -- it just works"
Truer words were never spoken.

Thanks again, ttuuxxx

Well most of the time and if it doesn't I usually keep trying until I get it Smile
theres been around 4 different software companies I've contacted for puppy so far and 3 of them actually provided fixes for our problems. Foxit reader is one of them, Very nice people, I still find it cool that, after I informed them of the issues at hand, that they then downloaded 4.11 to test Foxit Reader on it and then make a fix for it:)
Xarchiver was another who made specif fixes for puppy. But he did that via emails back and forth.
Plus there's another one which is a progress in work and will take months before I can spring that one on puppy, should be cool if it works out Smile But that ones top-secret shhhhhhhhhhhhh lol

Just in case anyone else finds Foxit vanishes after trying to load a file... I changed my Xorg colour depth from 16 bits to 24 bits and everything was then fine.

Smashing job, ttuuxxx!

Hi mr.Toad

If you have a chance could you switch back to 16 bit mode and this time run it via the command line
click the terminal icon on your desktop and paste the following and click enter
/usr/share/Foxit/FoxitReader
then open your pdf file and report the error, I'll contact the people at foxit about it. Once we have a few more bugs to report.
Thanks Guys,
ttuuxxx

Hi ttuuxxx,

Not been here for a few days - sorry. Anyway, here's what I found in my terminal after I did as you asked:

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

/usr/share/Foxit/FoxitReader

(°ïtReader:13405): Gdk-WARNING **: The gdk_draw_*_image require the drawable argument to
have a specified colormap. All windows have a colormap,
however, pixmaps only have colormap by default if they
were created with a non-NULL window argument. Otherwise
a colormap must be set on them with gdk_drawable_set_colormap

(°ïtReader:13405): Gdk-WARNING **: Attempt to draw a drawable with depth 24 to a drawable with depth 16
The program '°ïtReader' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 3230 error_code 8 request_code 70 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
#

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

Hope this helps. And thanks again for your interest!

MrToad

PS I couldn't figure out how to use the forum's "Quote" function, so I've put everything I cut & pasted from my terminal, between two dotted lines above.

When I try to access the URL for this Foxit reader I get a prompt to enter username/password - why would that be (sorry if I'm being thick!)

...SORRY! I should have read what was in front of me ...case closed.

This is a worthy effort, but sadly it crashed whenever I opened a .pdf file above a certain size (I'm using Boxpup 4.00 at the moment).

strange behaviour, maybe depending from pupplet you are using

on Puppy 3.01, I have opened pdf files of 85 MB and above without crashes

Excellent. I've had the same problem in other 4 series Puplets, such as Lighthouse.

It's not a major problem though because I've got epdfview which copes with about 90% of the pdf files I want to read, and evince in Zenwalk (my other distro at the moment)..

all of 4 series other than 4.2 had a gtk2 flaw which could cause these crashes, there are updates for 4 series that should correct that issue.
