Okay, installed the new pet, uninstalled libphoto2 and then reinstalled it.
Results:

1. reinstalling libphoto2 gave no dependency errors.

2. running Xsane from Menu brought up the GUI frontend. Selected USB and it started to scan for a device but as I haven't got a scanner here that is as far as it goes. But seems fine.
Tried to do the same using terminal "xsane" and get the scanning for devices window.
Only error message is the usual GTK and GDK warning ..locale not supported.

3. Still no menu for gtkam. Ran it from terminal and it came up okay. Same GTk/GDK error messages.

ttuuxx:
seems our posts crossed.
I edited the gtkam.desktop file and now it is in the Menu.
Enjoy the film!

MHHT:
I did as you suggested and now have xmms in the Menus.

Thanks to you both.

Ok Guys I can't wait, lol This was going to be my surprise, lol
I spent like 2 days on xfce making a xfBurn-Gstreamer package, it was for 415, So anyways I was bored and messed around a bit, and well lets just call this little package below XFCE-TRIO Cool
Basically its
Xfburn - Basic version I compiled on 2.14.1X tonight Smile
Ristretto Which is a nice small image viewer with adjustable slideshow, thumbnails, zoom. really nice for the size of it:)
Screenshot: This has to be the nicest Screenshot application on puppy:) you can Select region, active window, or whole screen, plus adjustable delay, then only part that doesn't work is 'Open With' big woopie, lol
The reason why I grouped them together is because they use mostly the same xfce libs.
I also included a updated /root/.xinitrc because your dbus has to be working and this update will turn it on, once installed refresh menus, and restart X-server and you should be good to go Smile
Trust me this is a nice package:) and only 809kb for all 3 applications.
ttuuxxx

Ps The way I hacked together these packages, they are just standalone apps, Xfce will not be installed, still using JWM Smile

Amazing work ttuuxxx, What a gift they look great. Can´t just wait the new release...

Well my two cents. About the error "locale not supported by C library", it means just that the system locale set is not supported by the C library compiled.

You can easily fix it just using:

Code:
export LC_ALL=C

or
Code:
export LC_ALL=POSIX


Use it and then execute any application, you can notice the error message is gone.

The LC_ALL variable Overrides all LC_* environment variables with the given value

It could happend because some locale files where missed when you compiled the C libraries.

You also could avoid these error messages just removing the LANG environment variable. BUT this also eliminates the internationalization support in all programs...

Ok that worked really well and thanks, but does it work for other languages? And how do I integrate it into the system. maybe just in /root/.xinitrc ?

Hi ttuuxxx

Just a reminder to a request I made earlier in the thread to have pnethood to replace linneighood which does not work at least for me with my Samba LANdisk access as I did not see it in 214x4.

Thanks

Mike

clarf Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
Putting
Code:
export LC_ALL=C
just before
Code:
#exec $CURRENTWM
in /root/.xinitrc fixes a lot of problems.SmileSmileSmile I Can now set my keyboard layout with Menu>Setup>Muse/Keyboard Wizard>first option. Very Happy Very Happy

Furthermore, if we comment out some offending code in /etc/xdg/templates/_root_.jwmrc:
Quote:
<WindowStyle>
<Font>DejaVu Sans 12</Font>
<Width>4</Width>
<Height>24</Height>
<Active>
<Text>white</Text>
<Title>#70849d:#2e3a67</Title>
<!--Corner>white</Corner-->

<Inactive>
<Text>#aaaaaa</Text>
<Title>#808488:#303438</Title>
<!--Corner>#aaaaaa</Corner-->
<Outline>black</Outline>
</Inactive>
</WindowStyle>
and run fixmenus and jwm -restart.........................

Smile

............................

then the original jwm_config manager works (at least the parts I tried) Very Happy :8

cheers/

Internationalization of software means programming it to be able to adapt to the user's favorite conventions (conventions such as the format for representing dates and times, monetary values, etc) there is a complete list in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Locale). In ANSI C, internationalization works by means of locales. The user chooses a set of conventions by specifying a locale (via environment variables).

Using a "C", "POSIX" or "" LANG variable will tell the system to use the standard locale. In this way any program will use their deafult message, date format, etc from the ANSI C standard.

The behavior of the locale variable is peculiar to the localization control itself in each program. For example, some programs use translation libraries just reading the locale variable. If you remove those transalations, the translation is not present for a specific locale value or the local value is invalid, then this application usually show a warning and then use the satndard translation libraries that it has.

You can edit the /etc/profile file and edit the LANG=en_US variable (line 77) to make this change consistant in each boot.

Hi great work on squashing those bugs Smile I'll include the fixes, there's one issue still left the error
'Xlib: extension "SHAPE" missing on display ":0.0".'
I read on the net how to fix it
To get the SHAPE extension, you need to load the extmod module in your xorg.conf:

Section "Module"
Load "extmod"

but dougal messed around and moved it from there. And when I try to add it to xorgwizard it doesn't work. grrr, any ideas?

#Special base config file used in Puppy Linux.

## Dougal: moved module section into xorgwizard.

# **********************************************************************
# Files section. This allows default font and rgb paths to be set
# **********************************************************************

thanks for everything
ttuuxxxx

Here's hardinfo hardware information, I edited the source code and renamed/repeated most of the icons so it would reduce the amount of icons needed, it went from 236kb in icons to 20kb in icons and still looks good Smile

Some feedback once again:

1. clarf's suggestion to do
Code:
export LC_ALL=C
eliminates the GTK and GDK warnings "locale not supported by C lib" certainly for xsane, gtkam and gtkhash but only while I am in terminal. If I go out of terminal and then back in and "gtkhash" for example the error messages return.

I tried adding "export LC_ALL=C" to /root/.initrc as suggested by MHHT but that didn't work. So I guess the question is where can it go to be persistent. Also I checked that /etc/profile line 73 had

Code:
 LANG=en_GB
which it did.

2. Even with this in terminal I get a further error message with gtkhash
Quote:
gtk-warning: failed to set property gtk toolbar.icon-size to GTK_ICON_SIZE_SMALL_TOOLBAR. could not parse integer.


3. As MHHT reported the change to /etc/xdg/templates/_root_.jwmrc resolves a lot of the issues with jwm_config_mngr

HTH

ttuuxxx;
Just installed HardInfo, and the Xfburn/Ristretto/Screenshot trio and all are working. Many thanks.

We now have two inserts in Menu>Graphics namely
"Screenshot" and "Take Screenshot".
Can I assume if you are going to keep both then you will rename them to ident them easier.
eg Simple and Advanced Screenshot or Even Screenshot-mtpaint.

Cheers
Dave

Bonjour à tous,

Hello ttuxxx,
Just installed HardInfo, and the Xfburn/Ristretto/Screenshot trio but there is one problem with ristretto, see picture below. I'm with the fr-FR locale.
Thank you for that version.

Bonjour esmourguit:
Go'day ttuuxx:

Yes I have the same error message when I run Ristretto from terminal. Well not as verbose; it just says
Quote:
DEBUG: xfdesktop is not running

I am running locale=en_UK.
However it seems to work okay either from the terminal or Menu.
