PostPosted: Wed 15 Dec 2010, 02:11    Post subject:  Lucid Lit
Subject description: Lobster personal enhancements/links/launcher for Puppy 5.2
 



What is LIT?
Originally I would create puplets as I needed specific configurations
LIT is an effort to quickly configure Puppy Lucid 5.2 to my preferences
Giving me links to features I need to install, refer to or use a lot

Not everyone requires an emergency Yodel

I do Rolling Eyes
The use of yodeling is explained here with the help of cats
http://youtu.be/cxLG2wtE7TM

New version for 28 Jan 2011 v3.8
Download from here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=490722#490722

Download to /mnt/home/lit
folder (you may have to create lit folder)
and click on lit to run
(change permissions with right mouse click if required)

Lucid Lit is designed for my use in setting up my computer and is an easy link/launch for others to modify.
It was designed for Puppy Lucid 5.2 but is easily modified for other recent versions of Puppy.

Found this old version of Lit which I will look at eventually/maybe
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=235185&search_id=1878584200#235185

The help menu pull down will be of use to beginners
and some of the software links may be of interest

Under Help for instance, there are links to: Beginners 5.2, Search

The code I have used many times in a variety of modified guises
The early versions of PSIP VOIP used similar code
and Micks Quickpet was inspired and developed from such beginnings
The code is easy to edit (be careful though
as a line space will mean the program does not run)
Just drag and drop LIT onto the edit icon to see the code
or use the edit program option

New for 3.6
edit program - opens geany and loads the code for this program
code formatting - cleaned the code a little so it is easy to read
ROX help - help on using the ROX file manager
Lobster Tips - this loads and makes use of notecase
help message boxes - adds a little info for some options,
puppy talk - adds flite and then speaks a file - two menu options - install first

In his excitement he forgot to describe it..... Shocked

It adds some more things like/to "QuickPet", if I read the script correctly.

. . . added more of a description in the first post in this thread

LIT allows me to have a launch program
to modify easily
- still working out what to include

For example the 'Mind' pull down menu which allows
you to control your blood pressure, chant and become a Buddha
(all before breakfast) I have removed for now - it may return . . .

I don't see the point of this sort of thing. What's wrong with a poplar, new and recommended section in the package manager? Why not put ones effort in adding a poplar, new and recommended section to the package manager?

FWIW Rolling Eyes/

This from Distrowatch News
Quote:
This last example is useful in that it will take a video recording of your desktop. It's particularly helpful if you want to show someone else the exact steps you are performing. The two important parameters here are the "-s" option, which sets the screen resolution. You can either provide your desktop resolution in exact pixels, such as "-s 1024x768", or you can use a pre-defined setting, as I have below. There is a full list of presets in the ffmpeg manual page. The last parameter is the name of the file where we are going to save the video. In this case I am saving the output from my screen to a a file in my home directory, called "my_video.mpg". The program will continue to record until you kill the process, so don't forget to hit Control-C when you're done, otherwise this will fill up your disk in a hurry.

ffmpeg -f x11grab -s wxga -r 25 -i :0.0 -sameq ~/my_video.mpg


Bless my jellyfish [Lobsterian swearing]
Never knew that - it did not work till I installed the ffmpeg in Lucidnews (optimised for x686 and set the resolution to my monitor and changed the save directory (Puppy save file would soon implode) like so:
Code:
# ffmpeg -f x11grab -s 1280x1024 -r 25 -i :0.0 -sameq /mnt/home/my_video.mpg

OK will add that . . . for next version of Lucid LIT Cool

LIT a good concept and a fresh approach Idea
that could be expanded to any version you wish to use
keep coding and having fun



*having an emergency yodel is required when using the forum
at least you know the echo is working even if nobody is there Laughing

Don't worry Joe, we're all here, but often as speechless admirers, not knowing the technicalities of echoing a perfect yodel Smile

(Looking forward to that long distance champion Saluki with your ideas included!)

Thanks for your understanding of the need to yodel.
It might be a medical condition but beyond the scope of conventional treatment. Wink

New for 3.5
Desktop recorder, Firefox security, poissonrouge (kids stuff), video music, gmx mail

The desktop recorder needs to be set up for your specs - might be worth playing with it from the command line . . .
Use ctrl+c to stop it
Pretty raw but worked well enough to create this (with the help of Openshot)
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=479532#479532

'Kids stuff' is for your small fry
(keeps me amused for a few moments too)
