Had a quick look at 006
seemed all right - fonts are not rendered properly (or is that my imagination?)

No Quickpet? (I hear from Igu he no like . . . )
I could not find Openshot or XaraLX or anything I might want to use in the
package manager so I am back in Quirky without any real Squeeze testing . . .

As an end user why would I use Debian
unless I can get some reliable progs?

Am I unreasonable? Confused

You can keep the Owl
- will pop back for 007 Very Happy

I think I'll make a 061, 006 with fixes Smile

So ... in order to fix printing, all we need is ghostscript? I can turn the DEB into a PET to skip Woof's processing.

I want to add fam (I removed it, I guess we need it after all) and dejan555's Abiword. I think we should roll back to rxvt-unicode, mrxvt is too problematic, I wanted to do this in 005 already.

EDIT: Lobster, you can get them from the repo. I have some cool concept of a Quickpet-like thing that is customizable and can be used on any Puppy, I want to work on this and a new kernel for dpup once all issues are solved.

That fixed it on my system. Nothing else required.

NEXT :

# lp
lp lpc lpinfo lpoptions lpq lprm lpstat
lpadmin lpdomatic lpmove lppasswd lpr lprshell

lpr -f /Path/to/File at terminal prints directly to the printer but

lp /Path/to/File not ...... I`am somewhat sure that this may be a problem perhaps, too .... Question

[EDIT]
this is running, too from console :

# lp -d Epson_Stylus_SX410 -o cpi=12 -o lpi=8 -o page-left=72 /etc/group
request id is Epson_Stylus_SX410-26 (1 file(s))

I know 006 isn't perfect, but I could easily live with this setup indefinitely. Very Happy

PostPosted: Mon 27 Sep 2010, 09:43    Post_subject:  Geany Printing options need to be in the definition range of
Sub_title: the CUPS-printing-settings else echo pdftoraster failed
 

006 pix=ram now

Printer setup was again no problem

Only installed /mnt/+initrd+mnt+dev_ro2+dpup006+dpupsave-MAINdpup006.3fs/root/Downloads/ghostscript_8.71~dfsg2-6_i386.deb

still printing seems to be only possible from the epdfview previewer today ... I`m starting to believe in ghosts for the moment ....

I somehow believe its in the lpr commandline or a much too little timeout compiled inside the editors Leafpad, geany, Abiword, gnumeric I`ve tested today

[EDIT]

Playing with the many printing options at the Geany-Printing-Gui it seems that I found some settings to be sync`ed with the cups settings ... geany now prints directly to the printer

[EDIT]

printing today : gnumeric, leafpad, geany and mtpaint via epdfview ( adding .pdf to .png so it is .png.pdf . the default 006-abiword didn`t print

I also tested don570 mtpaint shortly today but many defaultsettings are the same as at 3.31 especially to uncheck fix aspect ratio at resize/scale canvas is still annoying .. otherwise seems to work o.k ....

I'm generating a first 007 ISO with a non-processed Debian ghostscript, the new Abiword and rxvt-unicode instead of mrxvt, plus some other fixes, including the missing smbclient fix.

btw, today I discovered a small BitTorrent client named Torium ... it could be a good replacement for Transmission, as in the DeaDBeeF vs. Pmusic case. Need your opinion.

I think that it asked me to install gtkmm and dev headers to compile it and now it asks for libtorrent, I wonder what the size is going to be after I compile it with all the deps Razz

libtorrent is huge, I think the Calf Linux package for it is 12 MB Crying or Very sad

So ... good ol' Transmission wins ... as always Smile

Sub_title: seamonkey 2.0.7 ???
 

dpup-004 ... I like the wallpaper somehow Smile

# seamonkey -mail --version
Mozilla SeaMonkey 2.0.7, Copyright (c) 1998-2010 mozilla.org

doesn`t ask me for a password to setup a mail account ... seems not possible at all to setup an email account

I think it was discussed at the beginning of this thread ...?

That's fixed in seamonkey 2.0.8 in 005 and newer dpups Karl

While new iso is uploading just wanna share few things:

Printing works! Very Happy

delayedrun fix: we need & at the end of gtkmoz command because all icons in taskbar don't apear before welcome page browser closes otherwise.

Who wants urxvt with scrollbar on the right and black bg/ white fg put this in /root/.Xdefaults:

Code:
urxvt.saveLines: 500
urxvt*foreground:  #ffffff
urxvt*background: #000000
urxvt*scrollBar_right:   true
urxvt*geometry:      80x25
urxvt.font: x:9x15,xft:mono
urxvt.boldFont: x:9x15,xft:mono
urxvt.italicFont: xft:mono:italic:autohint=true


If someone knows good combiantion for xft fonts please tell.
