Subject description: For Jim 1911
 

Yes, Barry's 'nvidia-195.36.15-k2.6.33.2-1-q1.pet' does have the nvidia-settings tool in the pet. I had a problem with getting nvidia-settings to run on my system. Nvidia-settings would fail with a "segmentation fault". On my system (both Quirky 021 and 022), I made it run with a missing library error by deleting the link "/usr/X11R7/lib/libnvidia-tls.so.1". This worked for me. I also do not know what the library libnvidia-tls.so.1 does. I have used nvidia-settings to change the monitor resolution, so it works. The pet does not make a menu entry. One has to use a console terminal window (urxvt) to run it.

I hope this helps.

...tried cups printing with samba-3.0.26. SMB is listed as "unknown device" in dropdown menu. Configuring with it installs printer, but printing gets "/usr/lib/cups/smb/backend failed" error. I tried linking smb with smbspool without luck.

Can you please make Pidgin work in Quirky?

I tried different pets but nothing is working

Regards
Start pidgin in a terminal and report any messages.
Report also the version of pidgin.

Quirky-021 will print to a Windows shared printer without installing the full samba package. But you need to run the CUPS Printer Wizard from the Setup menu once to enable some modifications.

Thanks rcrsn51. I still needed the samba package to connect to host, but that got smb working.. so it's printing.

edit: I uninstalled the samba package, reinstalled the printer, and it's printing. I'm not sure why it wasn't able to connect before, but seems to be working now (maybe needed printer start or something.....).

Problem with not seeing my rom-drives on the desktop.

I have two drives in my desktop machine, one CD-RW and one DVD-RW,
with this version of quirky only one shows up on the desktop, and that
is sr0 (cd-rw) I think! I was hoping that sr1 might also be there, not so !

When it comes to using the latest version of pburn and calling on properties I have sr0 as cd-rw and dvd-rw as sr1 so maybe that looks
ok!

But if I put a cd into sr0 and return to tools in pburn and call to eject the
cd, this call is sent to the DVD drive and not the CD drive
So what's going on here? I also note that with a disc placed in drive that
a mounted icon does not popup! - The mount icon only comes up when
called from through the mount command.

Cheers Tui


You need to tell zigbert about any problems with Pburn. It is rapidly evolving, latest version is 3.2.5. There's a forum thread for Pburn.

We need a volunteer to compile Pidgin in Quirky and create a PET package. It should also be fine in Wary, which has all the same packages except for Xorg 7.3.

Hi Barry,

If Jwm is going to stay in, albeit not the main wm, can I suggest we replace the retrovol code in /usr/sbin/delayedrun (line 32) with this:

Code:
#JWM stuff
if [ -f /root/.jwm/jwm_colors ];then #v3.96
. /root/.jwm/jwm_colors
fi
if [ "`which retrovol`" != "" ];then
 if [ "`retrovol -help 2>&1 | grep '\-show'`" != "" ];then
  if [ "$MENU_BG" = "" ];then retrovol & #100119 tray volume control by pizzasgood.
   else
   retrovol -bg $MENU_BG &
  fi
 else
  if [ "$MENU_BG" = "" ];then retrovol -hide & #100413 versions after 0.2.
   else
   retrovol -hide -bg $MENU_BG &
  fi
 fi
fi


It just takes care of the background of the speaker icon.

Thanks

jpeps,

Maybe someone should make a neat pet with all the missing Jwm stuff.

Cheers

Gnome Mplayer in Quirky 021 apparently caused SeaMonkey to close.

It took me a while to figure out that the reason Gnome Mplayer wouldn't play a CD was that I hadn't configured the sound, then after I configured the sound I had to tell Mplayer to use alsa instead of oss. Before that, when I told Mplayer to play the CD it would load the cache to some number like 17.01%, flash briefly that it was playing even though it wasn't, then repeat the sequence with the next track, until it got to the last track. After I told it to use alsa it worked ok. It wasn't until after I told it to use alsa that I noticed SeaMonkey was gone from the other desktop. I don't remember doing anything that would have closed SeaMonkey, so it must have been closed by Mplayer trying to use oss. After I got Mplayer to work and then restarted SeaMonkey, I tried playing another CD and it didn't happen again.

Is it too late to deal with this akward error?

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=415060#415060

journal commit I/O error

it says each time I reboot.

I told it to do a ext3 save file could that be the reason.

Should I install it again and test to do just ext2 save file instead?

Well it failed. I totally failed to boot in using xorg.

And I doubt some other newbie would be able to do it if they have same nvidia as I have. One need to be very experienced to get it to work.

The file that tells about the choice is too big. One only can read half or two third and have no clue on what one chose. So I was lucky to hit the right more out of pure chance last time.

Now I have HP/Compaq one of the cheapest they had that year. SR5622SC with dualcore AMD and it gives a black screen.

One need an easy to grasp description to use at boot to stop it from booting into xorg and then some code to chose nvidia.

Lupu seems to do that out of the box so that one shoudl berecommended for those that have my hardware.

Would be sad if many lose trust in puppy because of Q1 not behaving good with nividia in HP

I downloaded the pidgin 2.6.1 pet.
As I don't want to take space in my save file, I converted the pet to sfs.
This runs perfectly.
You can find pidgin pets here.
