Yep, there's a bug: put "feh" in /usr/local/bin/defaultimageviewer.

Found an issue with feh & .gif files.

Code:

feh WARNING: /mnt/home/working/nextras/anatomy.gif - No Imlib2 loader for that file format
feh - No loadable images specified.
>defaultimageviewer "/mnt/home/working/nextras/anatomy.gif" (10047) returned '1'

Use feh --help for detailed usage information

Thanks for the new emelFM2 pet Iguleder. It is probably a fluke but after installing it my internet connection issues seem to have gone away. I can not imagine why installing it would fix the problem i was havin lol. Either way im a happy Guy Dog user.

Edit: I tested the new emelFM2 pet in Next Puppy & it works great. I posted the info & the pet on the Next Puppy thread for others to get if they would like to.

Again my connection issue that I was having with Next Pup has vanished it seems. Going to do a few reboots to test & make sure its not just a fluke.

PostPosted: Tue 18 Oct 2011, 19:26    Post subject: Guy Dog now working with Ati Radeon 3100 Graphics -- Almost  

Hi Iguleder & All,

Wanting to try something, but not recalling that Guy Dog wasn't working on my main computer, see [url] http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=573545#573545[/url] I unthinkingly booted into it without a problem. Not sure what I did wrong before, or right this time. But I'm happy.('Very Happy')

mikesLr

Edit: Almost> Did something which might have closed all open windows. But thinking that I somehow had shifted into a 2nd desktop --I didn't know it had a second desktop-- I looked for a way to shift back. Unable to find one, I figured the best thing to do was restart X via Ctl-Alt-Backspace. That gave me the dreaded "No Signal" being received by my monitor, requiring a hard shutdown.

Hi iguleder,
thanks for this Guy Dog !
tested on HP Pavilion w5260 desktop PIV 2.8GHz + ram 1024MB + nvidia NV44 GE6200s rev a1.

iso md5sum OK; frugal install by mounting the iso and copying to a guydog folder; grub bootup from that folder.

First bootup results:
1. at live-cd boot xorgwizard keepss "screwed" loading 'fbdev' driver, even if <Choose> whatever Intel or nv driver.
(see also forum member mandibule2005's post at end of page 1 this thread)
2. only vesa gives a working desktop (do not recall myself how I could get vesa working...). So here keep staying with vesa driver.
3. attempts to upgrade to Xorg 7.6 result in « ... http://ibiblio/..../pet_packages-5 Resolving distro.ibiblio.org ... failed: Temporary failure in name resolution wget: unable to resolve host adress 'distro.ibiblio.org.' »
4. Did not get Network Wizard working from Menu/Setup/Internet Network Wizard; only simple network wizard is working.

I appreciate:
- abiword, galculator and gnumeric in french locale straight configured (my keyboard config is be-latin1, french_belgium).
(firefox stays however in english )
- guy dog looks fast ...!

Cheers ! Charlie

1) Yes, Firefox has its own locales mechanism - just install a language pack, you can do this through the options.

2) Regarding "upgrading" X - do not do this, this version already ships with 7.6 ... and there's nothing you can upgrade to. This could install some spup or Wary package that is incompatible and break your system.

3) And the network wizard fix is already available (Barry uploaded it), so the next version will have it.

4) The NVIDIA driver is broken (I mean, nv, not the official, non-free one), so until you install it, you're stuck with vesa. Already fixed by rolling back X.

EDIT: doing the first automated build of 5.0.1, with all changes since 5.0.0. If it works well, I'll upload it and there you have the bug-fix release of the 5.0.x line. Smile

PostPosted: Wed 19 Oct 2011, 22:02    Post subject: Some progress with XP Portables  

Hi Iguleder & All:

I made some progress in getting XP portables to run using emelfm2. Follow the instructions pacer106 gave for adding file types to emelfm2. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=573512#573512. What you use in the category and label fields only matters to the extent that you’ll remember them. Place “exe” in the extension field, and “wine” in the command field (both without the quotes). Now when you double click an “exe” file --including one on /mnt/home-- a dialogue will open. Clicking OPEN will run the xp app.
Unfortunately, creating a symlink in /my-applications/bin of an exe didn’t enable me to start the exe from there. So I can’t create a menu entry via my ordinary technique. I’ll try other techniques.

Addendum:
Further efforts to use wine's interperter function binfmt_misc reported here:

There's a way to do this, it's in the kernel. It's a module you load that tells the kernel which interpreter to run.

It's useful with DOS emulators, Wine, Python, etc'. I just don't remember its name since I don't use it.

Read here.

EDIT: the 5.0.1 build goes on and on, but it's almost over Smile

There are tons of improvements in this version, I hope I'll be able to upload it today.

Subject description: urxvt
 

I found that you can't copy and paste from urxvt in guydog.
I installed mrxvt and copy/paste works with it.

I think guydog with wbar and openbox/tint2 is great, I am a fan of
window maker but this is better I think.

Uploaded Guy Dog 5.0.1, a bug-fix release of 5.0.0. Has many improvements.

EDIT: uploading deltas - they're quite big, which means it achieves the goal of being a good bug-fix release. Smile

# glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
50271 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10054.194 FPS
50308 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10061.453 FPS
50280 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10055.919 FPS

I installed the mesa utilities from the debian repo in ppm in order to
use glxgears.
I compiled Ltris but it gives an error when I try to run it:
# ltris
ltris: error while loading shared libraries: libdirectfb-1.2.so.9:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
#
Ltris worked fine in guy dog 5.0.0

The network manager wouldn't work but sns worked okay.
