It turns out that it's a script that you wrote that
is confusing pburn.

It's in the Startup folder of both Akita and exprimo.

Could you look into the problem and
give an answer to Zigbert?

________________________________________________

Akash Rawal made that script, not me... I have already updated it for the next BETA, so that it does not contain any characters that will throw pburn, or any other app... I already posted a few times about SFS-Load not working with some characters - it is exactly the same issue... But I have worked around it already - symlinks created are now "/media/Home-sda1" or "/media/Data-sdb2" and so on...

PostPosted: Sat 08 Oct 2011, 13:07    Post subject: Libpoppler update...
Subject description: might have broken stuff?
 

Hmmm... I updated libpoppler, but I think it broke pdftohtml, pdftotext, other utils in this package, and maybe others as well... I wonder what else might be broken from updating libpoppler... I have tried to re-compile pdftohtml, no success, yet to find out why...

I noticed this as I am in the process of updating a few of the ROX right click options, to better support mp-5, which I will be adding to Akita Smile

Zathura depends on libpoppler, but it's easy to fool it with
a link or just recompile it again. It only takes a second. Laughing

Here's my 'To Do' list, suggestions welcome now, before I finish:

Code:
   - make a quickpet, with office, cups, WMs, vbox, WHAT ELSE?

   - re-compile pdftohtml!!

   - zdrv_cutr GUI

   - add a 'Legacy' button to Firstrun, which loads 1stwelcome (and thus wizardwizard)?

   - i18n more puppy scripts
         - woofy, vlc-gtk, quickpet
      
   - fix puppyinstaller - make it support gtkdialog3 properly
   
   - add updated puppy phone package (psip32)
   - remove old psip package
   
   - add phash to 'OpenWith' folder
   
   - add bacon syntax highlighting to geany
   - remove nicoedit
   
   - get all remaining translations added:
      - check akita thread, akitas spanish thread, german thread, french thread
      - create .mo files as needed
      - do any small/easy translations myself
      
   - update VLC-GTK - vlc-gtk-btn:
         - if audio files playing, add a simple playlist GUI
         -  with file list and play/stop/next/prev/save buttons
         - maybe include id3 tags

   - add /media to gtk-bookmarks

   - gparted_shell i18n'd, but it still needs the translations added

   - PPM package manager:
      - filter by: [pkgname], EXE, DEV, NLS (add grep to line 31 of filterpkgs.sh, pass extra option from pkg_chooser.sh)
      - speed up the "dependcheckfunc" in /usr/sbin/petget ???

Yeaaah... I got the PPM updated how I wanted... When clicking the 'Filter' button, you can now filter packages by category, type (DEV, NLS, EXE, DOC) and search term (package name)... Very Happy

About Akitas "QuickPet":

I am thinking of adding my own repo to the PPM, with the Akita quickpet stuff...

- Then, I can use the PPMs dependency checking, package searching, etc
- So, I will also try to add support for sfs files (download and on the fly loading)..

And I may also have a go at adding a 'current kernel' only tick box to the Filter GUI - to remove all pets made for other kernels

PostPosted: Sat 15 Oct 2011, 16:06    Post subject: akita now has its own repo in the ppm  

Akita QuickPet plans have changed

I have added a new repo to the PPM.. the "Akita" repo,
you just click the button at the top of the PPM to see it..

(That will be in the next BETA/RC candidate)

So far I have added lots of packages to test, about 125 in total,
and built the required livepackges**.txt file..

So I have been testing the new PPM repo for a while and all works well.

The repo is already available online (obviously) so here it is: Akita repo

Even without the new PPM, you can download the packages in Akita and test them:

1. Does it have a menu entry? Does that entry have an icon? In right place?

2. Does the .pet have any missing files?

Code:
 ldd /path/to/file
will tell you the deps missing

3. Did it replace anything and break something else?

Code:
Look in '/root/.packages/***.files;
to see what was installed.

4. Please suggest (and link to!) other packages that should be added!

NOTE: Wary 511 packages, 2.14X packages, pup431 packages work in Akita (except drivers!)..

After the PPM is ready, you can test/check:

1. the description, file size and category as listed in the PPM

2. Your new, suggested packages

Sorry I can't test for a while, sc0ttman, but your repository looks Absolutely Fab with the selection range. Recently I 'discovered' puppian pa-mcclamrock's site (http://www.pa-mcclamrock.com/icebox.html) and his extensive "how-to's" on gnocl and tcl/GTK+ - to my mind it makes Akita the perfect base for newbies interested in customising their desktop painlessly, while having all the choices of updated packages from Wary, 214X - on top of the solid 420 foundation. With your new-and-improved QuickPet, the mind boggles. Your work here will probably spawn litters of pupplets,
Cool Top Work!

Thanks Smile

I am actually a big fan of pa_mcclamrocks work - I have had all his stuff
installed in the past, before some of his excellent updates..

I have noticed many of the pets which require Tcl/Tk in the Akita repo, do not
have it listed as a dependency. I am gonna update the deps for many packages in
the Akita repo, and make sure the tk/tcl packages work OK..

Then I can make a bumper PET pack of pa_mcclamrocks apps Smile
(I might already have it there, can't remember)

Also, I plan to upload PETs of openoffice 1, 2 and 3, all less than 100mb Smile
And I'll upload some softoffice and goffice2 PETs, too..

I am gonna have to convert a few sfs files into pet files before I do that.

Aside from Wary 5.1.x and 2.14X, I have also tried out a few pets from Guy Dog,
Next Puppy, Dpup and so on - they work well, and I will include a lot of them in
the repo.. This includes openbox, tint2, etc..

But I need suggestions from others, as to what else to stick in there...
(If anyone is interested, of course.. otherwise I'll choose!)

OK, in the Akita Repo (akita.scottjarvis.com) the following needs looking at (by me, just makin notes):

- FreeCiv ideally needs recompile, or (not ideally) old readline lib included in it
- mtcelledit should be in Calculate not Document category
- tangogps says gpsd not found, even when installed?

Also, I need a way to make /usr/bin/jwm_menu_create only show
duplicate items if the items end up in separate categories..

Example: The 'Fun' category has no sub categories, but many games have 2 categories listed in the .desktop files,
so appear twice in Menu>Fun .. but Pmusic is rightly listed twice, in different categories...

Just a quick note about your repository, sc0ttman -
I tried numptyphysics and it generated two menu items in the Fun section. I thought also that it had a neat soundtrack and effects I couldn't get here - perhaps that was Crayon Physics I remember.
GnuChess doesn't have a menu item, and wbar and wbarCC won't load properly as pets unless via PuppyControl (??). When I tried to run wbar control console, couldn't see it start and when I rebooted X I lost my xorgwizard settings. Couldn't actually get Xwin back and running despite multiple attempts (and with Xvesa). Me and Wbar haven't had a great history...
All the other games I tried seemed to load fine (except FreeCiv).
Sorry that I can't be more diagnostic with my feedback at the present time.
Cheers.

PS I actually PM'ed dave earlier last week to ask if he had an "IceBox" pupplet to showcase his wares - it would be amazing if you could resurrect that pet 'project' if you have it handy.
What about SoftMaker2008 for an office suite? Still a licensing issue with that?
And perhaps gnuGo (I think - over in the MacPup threads I remember it being discussed) - the kids seem really interested in that as a boardgame, better than checkers or chess which surprised me (happily).
