To meeki


You're the only person that has ever expressed any desire
to make a right click package Smile

Be careful how you name the package.

I suggest rightclick-fatdog-1.0.pet

or

rightclick-64bit-1.0.pet


Don

Thank you smokey01, I haven't had a chance to look at that. Very Happy

I think some mimetypes in Lighthouse64 might differ from other Pups, but if so, and you haven't already, Meeki might be able to tweak the Pet.

Regards,
TaZoC

tazoc they differ in Fatdog too but every right click app I have tried works so far. There are bound to be some that don't.

I'll test smokeys 1st on SAT then if any issue I'll build yours Smile

I got burnt out with pet tweaking after Skype. I'm back to my self again.

My latest fun has been trying to get amazon videos working in LH64. thanks to tazoc getting me HAL im onto flash plugin issue. It now wants to work but as soon as it loads the vid it crashes the plugin to the amazon video and any other webpage open using flash.

I have a feeling this may be as bad a skype pet Sad Its fun fig this stuff out though.

Sub_title: parallel port woes with scanner (HP Scanjet 5100C)
 

Hi TaZoC and other puppy gurus,
we love LH64 here - last few weeks have forgotten that we ever used MicroSoft OS's this baby has been rock-solid and such a pleasure to use. Thank You!

Now this morning I broke the system trying to get our (last working) scanner operational in LH64. Must have loaded the wrong package from the slackware repos and on reboot, lost the human interface peripherals of USB mouse and PS2 keyboard. Managed to replace the broken LH64save.3fs from an earlier snap2 backup (and make a habit of moving all my working files off-home anyway) so I've spent about a day trying to nut out sane, hplip and parport issues with HP backends under LH64 - but I feel like I'm tilting at windmills. Xsane doesn't look for parallel port scanners (nor peasyscan), hplip-slacko-5.3.3 pet doesn't seem to be functional here, and I don't have a clue about installing ppscsi - should I actually need it to communicate with the scanner. I first installed hplip_scan_fd64 -3.11.5 but I dunno that the 5100C is supported. Any suggestions on the matter will be gratefully received - but I am thinking that a parallel-usb port adapter might be the sanest way to go,
Cheers

It's not. According to the README here, you will need a lot of stuff to get this relic working. And it may not work at all with new kernels.

An adapter won't make it work. Go to your local thrift store and buy an old HP or Canon multi-function unit. Check that the ink cartridges are still inside, even if they are dried up. The scanner unit will probably work fine.

Send your 5100C to the recycler.

Heh - thanks rcrsn51 Wink

I *might* try to get it working under WINE. We have generally pretty poor recycling options out here in rural Australia, and generally it winds up as landfill despite Council's claims to the contrary. My trouble is I've since bought (new) a CanoScan3000 and a HP ScanJet G2400 and both died in the *rs* very soon after purchase. The Disposable Mentality infuriates me... but so does the scan speed of the old beast. So I am in partial agreement with you - this dinosaur isn't worth any more time recompiling for 64-bit, Linux 3.0.3 kernel environs, particularly by a numpty like me.
Ho hum - might have to do my scanning from my old Toshie 3480CT - it still has an XP partition on it somewheres for just such contingencies. There's blood and electrons to be squeezed from these old stones yet...
Thanks for the heads up on the adapter issue.
Cheers

PostPosted: Tue 25 Sep 2012, 21:24    Post_subject: Python Programming
Sub_title: tcl and tk
 

So I needed to do some python coding. Have not done this out of windowsXP so I fig what they hey I know the Devx-LH64_514.sfs has let me run all my python stuff.

Typed in idle in terminal and got;
Quote:
" ** IDLE can't import Tkinter. Your Python may not be configured for Tk. ** "

Well I know i can do it in a text editor but rather missed IDLE Python GUI.

after much poking around It only needs tcl and tk http://www.tcl.tk/software/tcltk/

Quote:
"export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="
and a putting it all in a sfs keeps it away from the current lib links. With out it python cant find them.

Made an icon in the utility/Development menu and some checks.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib

file="/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/scripts/idle"
if [ -e "$file" ]
then
   idle
else
   zenity --warning --text "Unable to load IDLE\!\nFirst check that you have installed and are running the Devx-L64_514.sfs\n If Devx is installed feel free to contact meeki007@gmail.com to report an error." --title "LH64 IDLE warning"
fi


Install the Python-IDLE_tcl_tk-LH64-8.5.12.sfs and enjoy the stock Python IDE for your own code projects.

TazOC,
Was catching up on some reading on Barry's Blog and I found this post about PPM: http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02985

Will those changes be able to get worked into the final LH64 release that you said you were working on? I personally dont need it, but I do think it would help those less skilled in Linux. Since you're release is already so user friendly, I was hoping it'd get added (if you had time).

Update: I'll be working on the new XFCE for LHP64 later tonight... hopefully things will go smoothly. Smile

EDIT: You told me before but Im daft and forgot... what is the dir in LHP that shows all the installed packages? The one where each package has a corresponding file identifying it.

PostPosted: Sat 29 Sep 2012, 22:19    Post_subject: LHPUP Record  

TazOC and every one else.

I too have been working on a program for LHPUP for a long time now. Its close to Release.

LHPUP Record

Screen capture GUI for FFMPEG. The GUI has a bit more to go but most of the bash hacks are done.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Video of what i'm trying to do.
http://youtu.be/9bwOAV_tvvo

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

I have not forgot you Puppyt

A while back you asked for some howto's on setting up lighthouse as a samba / web / server for hosting things.

I took this to heart and decided to do some stuff by recoding my desktop screen with audio and making some howto vids.

The Sad/Bad:
puppy for sure and linux in general does not have any real nice programs for this.

Recodmydesktop
http://recordmydesktop.sourceforge.net/about.php

Loved it in linux mint or unbuntu, but when i compiled it for light house or puppy its supper slow as hell. tried all the tricks still slow. and it was not fun to make a pet of.
Recordmydektop also saves files as a ogg. You tube hates this format so you have to take the extra step of converting it and this required another program I had to make a pet of.

VLC media player can be found as a sfs for light house

I could never get this to work right as a screen recorder in LHpup

XVidCap
http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/xvidcap/index.php?title=Faq

It worked. Lacks tons of features and would not grab my audio from mic. Its captures a nice vid but I got tired of recording my audio separate and then merging them with ffmpeg. yep built a pet of this too for LH64 but I dont relese pets that are a pain to use.

Pup record made by Lobster (you may know him for his macpup videos)
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=613319&search_id=952918519#613319

This neet simple script brought my mind into using ffmpeg as a desktop recorder. It worked and was EZ to use but you can only record your entire screen with it. But it made me take a closer look at FFmpeg

So this had lead to:
LHpupRecord

Its far from done but it should work with all Puppy's 4 and up as its all built using SH / BASH Scrips and a few C files that build on install of the pet.

Instead of modding pups I'm stepping into the world as a pup maker.

Thanks meeki!
writing in haste due to work/study/family commitments, but I thank you very much for looking into the issue of using LH64 for noob-friendly server functions. My immediate goals have shifted a little since then, but I wonder whether you (or others) might look into at some stage in the future compiling pets for "Openshot", JabRef and the latest "Docear"? Actually, your planned screencasts with LHPUPREC could be especially useful in showing just how a typical compile is performed, and an SFS or PET then generated...

JUST SAW YOUR YOUTUBE - LHPUP RECORD LOOKS FABULOUS! I've muddled about with avidemux, openshot, open movie, handbrake and videodub, and only briefly with screenCapture and simpleSHOT (the latter 2 in pemasu's Exprimo 5x14) so I appreciate the extra miles you've put in to this, and with gtkdialog. I'm sure it will be a real asset to the Puppy fold,
3 CHEERS!

Hey meeki -
just got back from a birthday dinner out for my daughter, practically to find that all *my* birthdays have come at once! Thank you so much for the effort that you've put into LHPUPrecord - I've just downloaded both your pet compilation 'tubes for intense review material on some of my pet projects... I've actually been bleating about such a video instructional resource, elsewhere on the forums (Newbies threads) for ages - this will be a huge help and lift my confidence to actually DIY rather than pester the likes of your Good Self. Thanks especially for burning the midnight oil on this, it's marvelous work. Will give feedback also on the 64-bit/LH Docear SFS later - you've got the absolute latest build there - I've gotta tell Joran and the guys there about that long startup splash - happens in every Puppy I test, but not Windblows - so it isn't the speed of your computer.
Kudos!

(P.S. Just been trying to explain to the wife the significance of your input here, within the broader context of what makes the Puppy Linux Community such a great place to hang around in Smile )
