I installed Opera from Slickpet. I don't like it, but I can't see any way to UNinstall it. How do I do that??


open PPM and click the uninstall button. A list of user installed programs will show. Then select opera from the list.

I've made Right-click compatible to Slacko so the
options should all work. I recommend that
gkhash be installed first.!!

Subject description: Transfer from usb stick to internal hard disc
 

Hi,

I built a working system of slacko 5.3 on a usb stick and I am trying to get it working properly on my lenovo T61 hard drive.

It partially works there, but dmesg shows many errors :-

[ 457.443552] aufs au_lkup_dentry:273:rdev[21002]: I/O Error, both of real entry and whiteout found, sequencer, err -5

Alsa mixer doesn't work and probably other programs as well.

This is the first pup where I have not been able to first build on a usb stick and transfer to a partition on my HDD.

Regards Tony.

Try adding "pfix=fsck" on your kernel line see if that fixes it. I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't work except some filesystem corruption.

Couple of pets..


I have compiled seamonkey-2.5. It includes flashblock and it works. You will get an update screen on first run checking your add ons in which the flashblock check box is unchecked, check it if you want flashblock. This doesn't occur in a pristine install.

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko/seamonkey_DEV-2.5-slacko.pet (DEV files for compiling, not needed)

-

I have also concocted a fairly crude suspend mechanism for acpi. There is an extra button in the GUI when you hit the power switch.. "Suspend", also, if your lappy has a sleep/suspend switch it should be activated (sorry can't test atm, reports from lappy users please). see attached.

EDIT: thanks to rhadon who found a bug the acpi_patch is updated

Have tested Right-click-5.4 on Slacko-5.3.0.1 + gtkhash installed as suggested, on a fresh slacko session (= pristine);

nothing happened here when right-clicking whatever file Rolling Eyes:
- at first right -click on a file, the top of the popup menu is only filled whit «Customise Menu»; not any other specific open option (exceped «gtkhash» for .pet file)
- then selecting «Open With ....» (left click) opens a little popup box with 2 lines:
«Trash
Customize»
displayed.

Thanks for the idea anyway and to keep enlarging its use to other distros ... find it usefull and time saver !

Cheers from Belgium !
Charlie

Hi Puppylings,
Barry just wrote in his blog:
"Please don't read too much into the version numbers, 5.3 (Slacko), 5.2 (Wary), 5.2.8 (Lucid). Our puppies follow parallel but independent paths, with different version numbering."

For the sake of users and newcomers, may I suggest a slight change in how Puppies are numbered? How about a preceding letter. For instance:
Slacko 5.3 would be S5.3
Wary 5.2 would become W5.2
Lucid 5.2.8 would become L5.2.8


That is an excellent suggestion, kurtchristie.
Using letter designations, as part of the PuppyLinux version number would certainly help me keep track of the proliferating puppy versions.
Using L-5.2.5 would make it clear to all puppy lovers that version 5.2.5 is in the Lucid versioning hierarchy. A version such as L-5.2.5 would also allow for expanding the sequence number portion of the version, as required. At the same time it would never conflict with the S-5.2.5; the Slacko related version, for example.

Great idea. Smile

Cheers,
ir

Hi all

back in 5.3 main and cant notice any difference from the pae apart from less ram being recognized, so I am going to stick with the main version.

mick just built a firefox-8.0 auto-update pet in 5.3, have altered the pinstall script from the slacko aurora 7.1 pet, installs and runs great, but when it is uninstalled the browse desktop icon still reads:

#!/bin/sh
exec firefox "$@"

any ideas how to get it to revert to the previous setting when the pet is uninstalled?? (before I upload the pet)

also having problem with the rox focus, eg: right clicking on an icon and still getting the main menu,

hope this helps

Don

edited to add: have fixed the rox focus problem (thanks to catdude he found it in the forum suggested by upnorth) by adding the line:
" export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true"
to /usr/local/bin/rox

so it looks like:

#!/bin/sh
export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true
exec /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/AppRun "$@"

hope this helps
Don

Hi Stripe

You can make a puninstall.sh script to restore the original, actually it should be standard practice.

In the pinstall, copy a backup of the orig /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser to root or somewhere, even as a hidden file, doesn't matter where really, unless the user is fido. Then in the puninstall.sh restore the backup.

Rox has had the focus bug for ages, it varies in degree, probably due to gtk version. It really needs to be updated but I don't have the skill.

HTH

edit: I'll add the catdude fix Wink

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=64708
  1. Sync with the recent woof(18 Nov 2011)
  2. Fix the menu was reverted to English at install/uninstall regardless the locale
  3. Always show splash to avoid to be silent
  4. Avoid in some kernels(slacko/dpup) and some hardware got freeze under PUPMODE=13
  5. Avoid was messing up with save interval=0 under PUPMODE=13

PostPosted: Wed 30 Nov 2011, 10:13    Post subject: PCTel modem working on Slacko 5.3  

Hi,
Wondering if there could be a way using less MBytes ...
To get that pctel module compiled and working, slacko-5.3 or the late slacko-5.3.0.1 require an extra 26MBytes kernel files.
doing
Code:
# uname -r
2.6.37.6#

That would tell there is no smp enabled..
Nevertheless Htop shows there are two CPU's actually working.
We do not get yet
Code:
# uname -r
2.6.37.6-smp#


- done all this on a full puppy install (did not succeed on a frugal install) -
got those pctel dialup modem to work on slacko 5.3 after compiling
the source file pctel-0.9.7.-9-rht-12.tar.gz.
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/pctel-linux/welcome.html
Were needed: install extra kernel stuffs:
1. kernel-modules-smp-2.6.37.6_smp.txz (20MB) and
2. kernel-huge-smp-2.6.37.6_smp.txz (6MB) files
3. + devx_slacko_5.3.sfs
4. + kernel-source-2.6.37.6_smp (62MB)

Afterwards, to get those pctel modules recognized and working, files 1. and 2. above have to be installed (+20+6 = 26MB compressed needed space..!!! )

then doing
Code:
# uname -r
2.6.37.6-smp
#
# depmod
# modprobe pctel
# modprobe linmodem
# modprobe pctel_hw
#


[thanks to the help of Karellen - on his blog here: http://karellen.blogspot.com/2011/11/pctel-inc-hsp-micromodem-56-with-linux.html ]

thanks for any advice
Cheers, Charlie

Frugal installation on an ext4 partition on a new Dell Inspiration Laptop is working great. Touchpad and a Logitech Wireless Mouse are also working fine.

Thanks for a super distribution.

Cheers,
Jim

You spotted a bug that I unfortunately didn't catch while developing
the Right-click package. I've checked and the problem isn't
with the Right-click package, but rather with the gtkhash package that
I recommended. Apparently an incompatible pet specs file
inside the gtkhash pet package was causing damage to PPM.
So after an installation of gtkhash some pet packages(not all!!)
would not install.

I have made a new version of gtkhash to
be properly compatible with newer Puppies
such as Racy and Slacko.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=586008#586008

There should be no problems installing Right-click-5.4 now.

PostPosted: Thu 01 Dec 2011, 06:44    Post subject:  

I'm working on a new stack of minimalistic applications:
- cwm - ported it from OpenBSD to GNU/Linux
- muPDF, the fastest PDF viewer there is - does not depend on Poppler and therefore huge (about 5 MB)
- libav, the FFmpeg fork
- mplayer2, the MPlayer fork - built against the former
- cmus - built against libav, too
- sxiv, a tiny image viewer similar to feh, about 20 KB Smile
- wbar
- Leafpad
- rxvt-unicode, a smaller package with some fixes
- Links, with the graphics mode

I think I'll upload this both as separate packages and an all-in-one PET. The multimedia stuff (libav and mplayer2) could be nice improvements for later releases, since they're much smaller than the current ones.

Currently, I'm testing the package building server to make sure all these can be built 100% automatically (e.g without any failures, so I can go to sleep, make it build them in a loop and shut down).
