Sub_title: Post software tested working in Dpup
 

This thread, suggested by shankargopal is for additional software testing for inclusion in the Dpup software repository...

I will also make available, an upload area on dpup.org for uploads of tested software...please PM me for ftp account details of the Additional Software upload area.

Cheers
Guy

Sub_title: Bibletime 2.5
 

Bibletime 2.5 was released for Christmas so please consider updating your bibletime-2.4.1-i686-dpup.pet. Also, although your pet does work with dpup, it is missing all icons on the toolbars.

Thanks for this nice pet,
Jim

Thank you papos, terrific little utility...and thank you for providing the correct format, it makes it so much easier...

...Please remember guys...Dpup software must be either compiled in Dpup or use Debian binaries and have the -dpup.pet file suffix...

Cheers
Guy

Guy- are you interested in Debian packages that installed and worked with no problems, and those that don't work?

eg

w3m- textbased browser works perfectly.
Ratpoison- keyboard-only window manager: couldn't get the menus to appear.

etc

Yes gerry, I'm interested in both so we can build a repo that works...the successes I can add unchanged, the others I can look at and adjust to work.....or can be guided by testers...

I've been away so I missed a lot of posts on DPup progress so I don't know if this has already been brought up. As far as KDE as a desktop, would it be possible for me to test the KDE Plasma Netbook desktop on DPup? Thanks!

Hi,
First, thanks to technosaurus, the version 8.4.13 works great on my pc, with sdl mixer on puppy 412, I don't even have to update alsa-lib to get sounds,

Gcompris 8.4.13, and dependencies:
gnucap + gnuchess + python + pysqlite + pycairo + pygobject +pygtk + SDL + SDL mixer +tuxpaint
to be found here:
http://ljfr2.perso.neuf.fr/pet_packages-4/general/
It's really nice since SDL is already required by tuxpaint anyway.

regards,

NB: I disabled gnet, and on puppy 412, still have to update:
-glib to version 2.18.3 (mainly to get libgio)
-sqlite to version 3.6.12
which you can get here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-4/


The above pets work great on dpup up through the latest 484b2 and would make a fine addition of children's educational programs to the repository. ljfr has the necessary dependencies on his personal page linked above which also need to be added.

Jim

Hmm, for you wm lovers Laughing try this karmen window manager, I found it to be lightest and most minimal wm among others, doesn't have taskbar, tray or menus, it's really bare (right click brings list of windows and there are buttons for minimize/close and double click on titlebar maximizes window.) Pet is only 96 KB, installed size 233 KB, just one binary!
karmen-0.15-dpup.pet

Here's a minimal desktop with rox panel/pinboard used:

Google Chrome works fine by installing the deb package from http://www.google.com/chrome

Debian packages from the PPM I've installed include NetSurf browser, Arora browser ( a neat little Webkit browser) and Kazehakase browser. All 3 work fine in 482.

w3m (text-only browser) from the debian repo worked in dpup 482, but in 484 its options setting facility doesn't work.

I think I am going to have to bring forward beta3 release....there are too many problems with the bash changes...

Later tonight beta3 will be up...please do not carry any settings over from previous versions, they will break it...beta3 is actually 485pre-alpha...alot of things are different...a new slate.

Err, gposil can you post correct pet.specs format again, I just used one generated by dir2pet, but I want to make a right click script that generates pet.specs and tar dir up, then do tgz2pet without asking anything, I had similar script for other pet packages, they only had few lines.

Code:

#!/bin/sh
FOLDR=$(basename "$1")
echo "Making dotpet out of $FOLDR"
cd "$1"
echo "PETMENUDESCR=''" > "$FOLDR.pet.specs"
echo "PETOFFICIALDEPS=''" >> "$FOLDR.pet.specs"
echo "PETREGISTER='yes'" >> "$FOLDR.pet.specs"
cd ..
tar -cf "$FOLDR.tar" "$FOLDR"
gzip "$FOLDR.tar"
tgz2pet "$FOLDR.tar.gz"
echo Finished


I put this as right click option on directory in rox.
