The pidgin I posted above has ssl so you can use the MSN messenger also.


OK

Really I just use plain of html gmail account, but some like the MSN messenger thing, I used to use it a lot, but found it a great time waster.


So the extra feature of pidgin is that it makes ssl available to other apps?

I like Xchat better these days, its real small and fast room retrievall list

I try to avoid all forms of chat as I find them invasive. I prefer E-mail as it is usually quick enough and better available for a "paper trail" when I want to revisit a discussion or document a discussion while allowing for reply-at-your-convenience versus reply-on-demand.

I text on my cell phone with couple of people and that is enough of a nuisance!

If you try my latest pidgin, it comes with ssl

I a;ready use Pidgin, I already have it working with all the MSN Messenger, Google Talk was a little tricky. I even created a set of wolf smilies for it when I was bored one day based on the Yahoo set. I will check and see what version it is when I am on that comp later tonight.

I tried installing the openssl pet I found with the app search but that didn't help. Do you think it is just ssl I need then?

It might be for some odd reason only open SSL that you need, usually you can use one of 3 times for linux.

Thank you.

Ok, I got openssl installed with gslapt and tried to install the certificate, now I get the same error, but when I run this, (Web address altered for security)

Try to run the following command from terminal--
"acroread -installCertificate es.somewebsite.com 433"

I get the following.

Code:
Fetching certificate from website....
connect: Connection refused
connect:errno=29


Here I become totally lost.

It does show missing libGLU when installing but that ok, it isn't needed for what your doing.

Hope this works for you


Just got to the bottom of a problem that this Acrobat pet install caused.

Fairly serious substitution of /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 to point to it's own

usr/share/Adobe/Reader8/Reader/intellinux/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.7

instead of the pre-existing Puppy /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.9

This caused freememapplet to choke, along with possibly other problems.

Just delete the one in the package, system link yours to same location and rename it to libstdc++.so.6.0.7

I didn't take anything out of the package. I just restored the /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 to point to /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.9.
Acrobat accepts it. And everything else expects it.

I've been reading up on some older releases of pdf viewers for linux and some actually didn't even recognise password security on them.
Xpdf is such ones.

Foxit Reader renders quickly, you might want to try it, printing doesn't work yet, but as a reader goes, its really nice.

hi aarf,

you can test the actual epdfview, it's here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=39100

on page 1.

i've tested your pdf, it works. but you'll have to wait until it's fully loaded what takes some time because of it's size. if you don't wait, epdfview might quit.

The Beta 1.0 version of Foxit works fine here, including printing.

It is very fast and smooth.

Unfortunately it is quite large compared to ePDFView 3.7M / 176k or something like that.

The Windows version of Foxit works quite well too, under wine.

Sure beats adobe at 42M.

hi aragon
installed the epdfview0.1.7pet into ripple6.03
opened epdfview, checked that it updated to 0.1.7 then opened the pdf above and after waiting a long time for all displayed loading dialogs to complete, tried to scroll down with the arrow keys and didnt even get past the first page before it froze and had to do a hard reboot. next test used the "next page" instead of the scroll and got to page two then froze when trying to get to page three. none of the camera images were displayed on any opened page in either test.

didnt test in puppy 4.1.1.
will stick with foxit for now as i mainly use ripple.
thanks for the link anyhows at least i know now.

Subject description: This may be a solution to some of the above pdf problems.
 

GotFreeFax.com gives you another two no-ad free faxes a day.

For viewing and storage and sharing pdf files online try this: http://viewer.zoho.com/

Since I gave up my phone landline and now have just my cell phone I found this site that I use with absolutely free and excellent service:
http://faxzero.com/

Actually, it is the faxzero service that prompted my original question. One can fax for free a pdf doc with up to three pages. If the doc is more than three pages, I split it to comply with the three page limit and send each split as a separate fax. There is an additional cover sheet containing a small advertisement that pays for the service but I don't find that bothersome, considering their excellent service.

They will service a fax for you of up to 15 pages for $2 paid via PayPal should you really need that perhaps for a more professional appearance. But for my work the free service is all I need.
