Subject description: Open Office
 

The version on this page works great with Pupflux 5.1.1.

I downloaded it, unpacked it, then changed the name by getting rid of the _431, ran bootmanager and added the sfs.

Then, change the fluxbox menu as you normally do, but OpenOffice commands are as such:
Code:

swriter, word processor
scalc, spreadsheet
smath, mathmatics
simpress, presentation


Cool

PostPosted: Wed 22 Sep 2010, 14:45    Post subject: PfluxLite-5.1.1  

Now we got PfluxLite-5.1.1!

Check the first page for download location...thanks to MU for giving a great download location (username: puppy, password: linux).

This was created from scratch using Woof...not totally tiny (120MB) but much smaller than Pupflux 5.1.1 original.

It does not have a browser (easy to install from the menu with Quickpet or run quickpet from terminal), gnumeric, abiword, jwm or icewm.

If someone asks I can upload the devx, but the Lucid devx mentioned before will probably work fine (I think so? I created it using the same settings as Puppy Lucid, just left some things out) but didn't want to take up all of MU's bandwidth.

So very nice SteveS. Would it be possible to make a pet that could be placed in the Puppy Package Manager that could add pupflux capability to standard Lucid 5.1.1? Or 80% of the capability Wink Thanks.

And now I read more

dejan555 provided the fluxbox for Lucid,


Can we put it in PPM dejan555?

@ playdayz, it's already in ibiblio under pet packages 5:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-5/fluxbox-1.1.1-i486-dpup.pet
so I guess it should show in ppm Smile

BTW, while I'm here I'll mention this cool menu button hack I found, see this post on dpup thread for screenshot and links:

Glad you guys got it figured out....

Thanks for the praise, Playdayz.

Dejan's fluxbox has it all and would make a great addition. I did a great deal of tweaking on the menu, but that was more for my own benefit; his initial menu looks great.

And thanks for the hack, dejan!

PostPosted: Thu 23 Sep 2010, 19:25    Post subject: pfluxlite  

I tried Pfluxlite and I liked it's look.

Oddly I found Geany slow to launch.
______________________________________

Here are some suggestions.
Retrovol should be in the menu rather than alsamixer.
Also you need a version of mhwaveedit that will launch
Retrovol by clicking on icon.

Try this
http://www.datafilehost.com/download-7255dff9.html


set_hwclock should be in the menu as well to be consistent with Lucid Puppy.
Many users won't know how to set the clock if they are booting
on a linux machine rather than a windows machine.
________________________________________________________

I suggest you use this version of mtpaint 3.34.55 .
It's only slightly larger than version 3.31

http://www.datafilehost.com/download-d3a1bd6f.html

______________________________________________

I made a package to put some useful right-click options for Rox Filer.
Try it out. It uses mplayer to play several audio and video formats.

Thanks, Don, I'll check it out...never used retrovol, so I'll have to look into it...I just picked the mtpaint that was recomended in the woof build and i am trying to keep the size down on pfluxlite...I like the Rox filer ideas, though...didn't notice any slowness on geany but will look into it...like I said, I'll check it out; thanks!...

You should read forum member shinobar's experience with making lupq
(Lucid Puppy Quickset)
http://208.109.22.214/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=58654&start=195&sid=545f15eb76b732a352b8dcd2bc37c11f

Apparently the apps he was getting from Woof weren't stripped!!

It all started when I read about the program strippkg
http://208.109.22.214/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1919936677&t=59013&sid=545f15eb76b732a352b8dcd2bc37c11f.
When I tried using it, I noticed that Retrovol wasn't stripped .
I sent a message to Shinobar to tell him about it. You can read the rest
with the link.

During the woof process, if you have devx running, it gives you the option to run "strip", which I did, although this was my first time to have a completed process with woof, so have no idea how stripped it was...

Thanks for the info, don!

PostPosted: Wed 29 Sep 2010, 00:19    Post subject: intermittent pauses when playing audio cd  

Hullo there,

It's back, Pupflux, and I'm digging it. From the desktop right now.

However one little thing I noticed on playing an audio cd with Gnome-MPlayer, about three times a minute sound output ceased for round a second. Optical drive is good (nothing in dmesg about i/o errors). What I have seen of mplayer messages appears normal so far as I can tell. Ran it in a terminal with CD inserted and saw some output as disc was recognised and began to play.. Also just stuck in CD and clicked on it which opened Gnome-MPlayer. What can it mean? I did find myself wondering whether it is periodically trying to get artwork, track details, etc from the net - no network connection at that stage. MP3 playback from USB stick no problem.

Machine is a ThinkPad R51. Live session.

00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 01)

Anyone seen this, got any ideas, etc? Afraid I haven't researched it at all.

Hmmm...no specific feedback from me regarding that one...I don't know if mplayer looks for data on the web. I think of mplayer as a universal media player and not as much of a music player...for that i might pick something like pmusic, which I know Pfluxlite has (I'm using that right now) but can't swear to Pupflux...type pmusic in the terminal and see how it plays for you music...

Look in Edit > Preferences > Mplayer at the cache settings.

Maybe the cache is too large and Mplayer has to pause to fill it.
