Quickpet 4alpha4

********************************************
Note: this is alpha software for testing and evaluation, no responsibility accepted for malfunctions, use at own risk. It is recommended you backup your pupsave or important data
************************************************


This is the long awaited [ Rolling Eyes ] generic version of quickpet. While it is designed for lupu in lupu it has undergone major reconstruction to theoretically run in any woof based puppy. At the moment only lupu, quirky and wary are supported and only the lupu version is full featured. You shouldn't notice much difference in the user interface excepting that if there is more than one particular version of a program in the official Lucid Puppy repo then you will be offered a choice in a popup menu as to which version you want. Firefox, Seamonkey and Opera are good examples to try out (I think at this stage they are the only ones).

The advantage to this is that the Benevolent Dictator (playdayz for us Wink ) need do nothing more than upload an updated package to the official repo and reconcile the /root/.packages/Packages-puppy-*-official file by way of an update pet in the 'News' page. (In our case with lupu * = "lucid" .)

This should run ok on all lupu/luci/luma versions of lucid Puppy, though I can't guarantee the results of installing the later .pets in for example Puppy 5, but if anyone wants to try it out do so with care.

________________________________________

How do I install it?

Firstly, delete /root/.quickpet (hidden folder)

Then, Download all the attached packages and install in this order:
    quickpet_generic-4alpha4.pet
    quickpet_lupu-4alpha4.pet
    repo_update-2010-10-17.pet


The install order is important.

___________________________
Known issues
    wine will show a bunch of programs dependent on wine
    no help for nvidia drivers as yet


TO DO
    This will be going to it's own thread when wary/quirky/* support is up to speed.
    fix nvidia help
    add support for other video driver, intel, ATI (will need help Wink )


Feedback please Cool

Enjoy, cheers.

I can't wait to build a new luci-232 with 01micko's latest Quickpet. The pieces of Lupu-5.2 are falling into place one by one, thanks to some hard and creative workers.

Here is a peripheral piece of the puzzle: an sfs of OpenOffice that has been tested in luci-231. This is the first one I hope to test with the new one-click way to install sfs's, but for now you need to do it the old-fashioned way. Download it into /mnt/home and then tell Bootmanager that it is one of the sfs's to enable, and then reboot It has menu items under Documents.

And the most amazing thing is--it's fast. I know that is hard to believe given some previous versions of OpenOffice--but this is fast enough to use easily--I am really impressed.

http://www.diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/Go-OO-3.2.1-Lucid.sfs

And I hope people saw the good news yesterday, that lupu's mplayer now plays audio for 3gp and mp4 mobile phone videos. With that I think we can match it against anything in terms of quality and speed. We will post some test files with the next version.

Example of 3 tier menu not working
Xara is repeated
'Graphic processing' can be replaced with one of the other 3rd tier
options
then add third program
'Graphic processing' is largely redundant Embarassed

Same under 'Business' in menu Cool

Has Jemimah found a simple chat program?
Looking forward to simple SFS

Glad to report that openbox based Luci-231 is my main OS
and working sufficient for day to day use
Looking forward to 232 Smile

I gave up on Go-OO when it had cups printer issues, where the cutback-OO worked well. I haven't tried the posted version.

Do you mean you like to disable the touchpad?
Flsynclient and the synclient-wrapper could not be a help?


Actually, I'm using it without issue on a Dell Inspiron 4000 running 5.2. In the past, I've eventually had to disable them when they become erratic (cursor starts jumping around the page, etc)....no problem here after running xorgwizard (or other Dell laptops) with SynPS/2 Synaptics Touchpad.

new version of wmswitcher.

It will detect the 5 main WMs for lupu: Jwm, Icewm, Xfce4, Openbox, Lxde.

Note: if you install xfce you will need to reinstall this pet. (yes, that needs to be fixed Wink )

Cheers

Solved in my experimenting here at home--so we should have a jave ready to go before or at release.

Also an OpnOffice ready to go. I am sorry people about that OpenOffice not downloading. I don't understand unless it is the sfs ending. We often download from ibiblio.

I will work on this now. I will upload to another server rather than fight with ibiblio. Wink

Go-OO-3.2.1-Lucid.sfs file does not exist in 'http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/' repertory.
It's Go-OO-3.2.1-Lucid.gz and this file is also 'access forbidden'.

Yeah, I did that to see if it made a difference. it was the darn permissions. This one works.

Go-Openoffice-3.2.1-Lucid Now downloading from both urls.

http://www.diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/Go-OO-3.2.1-Lucid.sfs

Please advise. I first tried the Ubuntu OOO, but it wanted too many dependencies (it is based on Go-OO). I used Go-OO because I had built a package before that worked. I never used OOO because it was so slow, which is why I am impressed with the speed.

Barry has built openbox and fbpanel into Woof, but I guess the menus have not received as much testing as jwm and icemwm.

Hi 01micko,

New version of wmswitcher and Quickpet v4alpha4 both work fine.

Also installed your Quickpet v4alpha4 in Wary 0.9. It installed fine, however, as expected, applications were not in the database. Although, More pets and SFS links worked fine.

Thanks,
Jim
