PostPosted: Mon 16 Sep 2013, 23:22    Post subject: lupu and lupuplus 5.2.8.6 betas uploaded to mediafile.com!  

I have completed my first cut at 5.2.8.6 and uploaded lupu and lupuplus for testing. Rather than use only "stable" packages, I collected many of the latest versions of puppy programs, primarily from shinobar, zigbert, don570 and default backgrounds by futwerk. Although there is some risk in that approach, I find no problems yet. All of the lupus now have the same level of infrastructure updates. The only difference between lupu and lupuplus are the additional networking drivers in lupuplus.

The new ISO files are here:
http://www.mediafire.com/folder/dc28t2rkua3kw/Disk_Images-5.2.8.6

Please report any issues you discover and make recommendations of other updated versions of programs already in lupu.

My goal is to eventually provide disk images (ISOs) for all of the variants of 528, including 3HD and a lupuplus with a zdrv file that reduces the lupu_528 SFS file to fit into 256M of RAM. I would also like to make a version of that for the AMD K6 processors, if that is possible.

For now, though, let's round up new versions of programs, to bring 5.2.8.6 as "up to date" as we can. Thanks for any help with this.

Here are the updated programs/packages I have included, so far:
    dgcmodem-1.13
    dhcpcd-5.6.4-patched_dropwait-i486
    epdfview_lupu-0.1.8
    ffconvert-1.3.3
    ffmpeg-0.8.11-lupu528u005
    ffplay-0.8.11-lupu528u005
    frisbee-1.1-20130415-modified
    getflash-1.2 (replaced by 1.3 10/12/2013)
    get_libreoffice-0.29
    gtkdialog-racy_lucid-0.8.4r514
    lupu_5.2.8.6-delta-20130916
    lupu_5.2.8.6-delta-backgrounds-20130916
    lupu_5.2.8.6-delta-slmodemd-20130916
    lupu-5.2.8.6-not_usr-20130720
    lupu-5.2.8.6-usr-20130726
    mhwaveedit-lupu-1.4.23
    network_tray-2.7-20130419
    office_defaults-1
    pbackup-3.1.9-1
    pburn-3.7.18 (replaced by 5.1.1 10/12/2013)
    pdiag-20130207
    pfilesearch-1.34
    pfind-5.11
    pmirror-0.6.2-1
    pmusic-4.1.1
    pprocess-2.3.2
    pschedule-1.1.3
    psync-2.9
    ptiming-1.0.2
    sfs_load-1.9.9
    sylpheed-3.1.4
    ubuntu-lucid-repositories-20120426
    usb-modeswitch-1.2.7-20130807-adapted-lupu528


UPDATE 9/17/2013:
Having discovered that the intended version of ffmpeg was not in the ISO files, I restored it by removing the "Pmusic_Upgrade-Lucid528-005" package because it is already part of Lucid528-005 and used an older version of ffmpeg. The uploaded ISO files are labeled "20130917". Please use the new files if you are testing with multimedia.


UPDATE 9/21/2013:
I have uploaded new versions of the ISO files and changed the package list:
- Removed pburn_NLS because it is not for operations.
- Added the following packages:
    dgcmodem-1.13
    get_libreoffice-0.29
    office_defaults-1
    pbackup-3.1.9-1
    pmirror-0.6.2-1
    pprocess-2.3.2
    pschedule-1.1.3
    ptiming-1.0.2
    sfs_load-1.9.9
- Added an SFS file of libreoffice-4.1.1, the latest!


UPDATE 9/30/2013:
I have uploaded a new set of disk image ISO files, all labeled as version 20130930. All of those images function identically, the main differences being the characteristics of the intended target machines. I have changed the meaning of some of the names:
    - lupu-5.2.8.6 -- Lucid Pup in single 155MB SFS file, appropriate for 512MB+ RAM
    - lupulibre-5.2.8.6 -- Lucid Pup and LibreOffice in single 392MB SFS file, appropriate for 1GB+ RAM
    - lupumini-5.2.8.6 -- Lucid Pup with Z-drive and 121MB main SFS file, appropriate for 256MB+ RAM and minimal 160MB download size
    - lupuplus-5.2.8.6 -- Lucid Pup with Z-drive, 121MB main SFS file, separate (manually installable) LibreOffice and Java/jre SFS files, appropriate for 256MB+ RAM
The original "lupu" variant is discontinued because it is updated to match the old "plus" variant. The only item not retained from it is "goffice", although abiword and gnumeric remain.

Added to the "delta" package (most recommended by radky):
    - default home page blog correction
    - load-touchpad-settings - removed invalid tests, so always runs flsynclient
    - ipinfo - made scrollable, from slacko

UPDATES 3/10/2014 and 3/21/2014:

Additions to architecture "delta" package:

Thanks a lot.

I tried Sylpheed 3.3.0 some months ago in 5.2.8-005 (I now see that it's in Slacko?), but had some problem, don't recall what.
Have been using Sylpheed 3.2.0, seems fine.

Using the LupuPlus 5.2.8.6
So far seems to all work.
Still testing.

Thanks for your support rerwin!!!

On your download site I am seeing two LupuPlus downloads?

One possible issue.
Gparted could really use an update. It is up to version 0.16.1

Hi Richard

I don't know if you think that the Broadcom wl driver would be a useful addition to 5.2.8.6, but if you want to include it the pet is at:

http://peebee.5gbfree.com/share/broadcom/broadcom_sta_v5.100.82.112_patched_x86_32-k2.6.33.2-lucid.pet

I've tested it and it seems to work fine.

I also note that there is a very old (1.3) version of sfs-load-on-the-fly in 5.2.8.6 whereas the latest version in slacko is 1.9.9 - maybe this should be updated?

Using lupu again after all this time reminded me that it didn't handle laptop touchpads very well - just wondering if there is an update that could be applied to make them work OOTB.

Cheers
Peter

peebee,
Thanks for your suggestions. The wl driver is already in the lupuplus image, from lupuplus-528-005-1, part of the extended set of wireless drivers. It was never added to the original lupu-528.005.

I have just now downloaded shinobar's sfs_load-1.9.9 and will add it to the next version of the images, from http://shino.pos.to/linux/puppy/, in case you want to download & test it right away (as I have no experience with it).

Fixing the touchpad support seems like a worthy task. But I am going to need assistance in tracking down the piece to update. What do you and anyone else reading this know about the touchpad support? As I recall, my netbook touchpad worked well with lupuplus, after I adjusted some settings. What sort of problem did you have with lupu and touchpads?
Richard

Hi Richard

Have checked sfs-load-on-the-fly 1.9.9 and it seems to work fine....

The utility for the touchpad is FlSynclient I believe,,,

On bootup of 5.2.8.6 my Synaptics touchpad "scrollbar" is disabled - when FlSynclient is run it detects the touchpad but puts up a message to say that an X-restart is needed - after X-restart the touchpad cursor movement reacts very sluggishly until FlSynclient is run again and the parameters are tweaked.

All of this seems to fully automatic in all the current Pups - Precise, Slacko, Upup etc. with a fully working and properly configured touchpad on initial boot.

Whether just an updated FlSynclient is needed or something else as well I'm not sure - maybe 01Micko could remember what changed?

[later] On further investigation it looks like a later version of Xorg would be needed to fix the touchpad problem - Precise has 1.11.3 whereas Lucid has 1.7.6....would guess this is a change too far for this exercise.

Cheers
Peter

After following the instructions on the touchpad issue, it came out really great at mine ASUS U36SD laptop.

This works and looks great.

The utility for the touchpad is FlSynclient I believe,,,

On bootup of 5.2.8.6 my Synaptics touchpad "scrollbar" is disabled - when FlSynclient is run it detects the touchpad but puts up a message to say that an X-restart is needed - after X-restart the touchpad cursor movement reacts very sluggishly until FlSynclient is run again and the parameters are tweaked.

All of this seems to fully automatic in all the current Pups - Precise, Slacko, Upup etc. with a fully working and properly configured touchpad on initial boot.

Whether just an updated FlSynclient is needed or something else as well I'm not sure - maybe 01Micko could remember what changed?

[later] On further investigation it looks like a later version of Xorg would be needed to fix the touchpad problem - Precise has 1.11.3 whereas Lucid has 1.7.6....would guess this is a change too far for this exercise.
Those are good pointers as to where to look. Since both are executables, the next-best thing is to check the scripts that interface to them (synclient & xorgwizard/xwin). I can compare the precise and lucid versions to look for anything related to touchpads that has changed. We might try substituting the precise version of flsyclient, but Xorg seems too risky to upgrade.

BTW: While assembling the disk images I found that several scripts were missing, causing networking and frisbee to fail. I added those and some others as the package, lupu_5.2.8.6-delta-20130916, and included it. I also attached that package to the original posting of the upgrade packages. So, anyone encountering problems following installation of those packages should now install the delta package, as well. The posting is here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=714562#714562

One more thing: Is anyone interested in adding internationalization to support any of the new packages. If so, please instruct me as to which further (NLS?) packages to include. I am not at all sure internationalization even works in lupu, so this may be infeasible. But I would like to know, one way or the other.

Please excuse; I downloaded the file this morning, Sept 18.

Does it include all the updates you mentioned in your message, above?


Thanks a lot,

Sheldon

I intend to maintain the list at the top pf this page to describe the latest version (by date) of the set of image files. All variants of lupu will have the same set of updates. The "plus" versions contain additional wifi and analog modem drivers but are otherwise identical to the "lupu" version in content.

After the "dust settles" on what gets included, my plan is to start a new thread for "5.2.8.6" to support further contributions to it. So, let's bring this as up-to-date as we know how, to minimize the need for further additions.


peebee,
Flsynclient is the same in both precise and lupu. One package that precise has that is absent from lupu is this:
ftp://ftp.linux.hr/puppylinux/pet_packages-5/synclient-0.14.6.pet
which puts a "synclient" file in /usr/X11/bin, in addition to the one of the same name in /usr/bin. Could you install that to see if it makes a difference? I doubt that it will, but let's rule that out, anyway.

The remaining thing to try is to copy the precise version of /usr/bin/synclient into lupu, replacing the link to the synclient .sh and .bin files.

PostPosted: Sat 21 Sep 2013, 23:29    Post subject: lupu 5.2.8.6 new version 20130921 uploaded  

The new upload contains some minor additions, one marginally nice and the other probably very useful.

- For USB dialup wireline modems, the dgcmodem driver provides the modem sounds for those that support it. I added it because they are already supported by the cdc-acm driver but are silent in the non-plus versions of lupu.

- For LibreOffice, I built the latest (4.1.1) using 01micko's latest get_libreoffice utility (in the Document submenu). (Note that a full gigabyte of free space is required in the home partition for the process to complete; so not everybody can upgrade their own libreoffice SFS file.) Using the libreoffice file, you can add it to either of the Iupu installations with the BootManager or the Load-SFS-on-the-Fly. Whenever libreoffice is present, it will be the default "draw", "calc" and "write" application. I plan to also create a full lupupluslibre ISO and a new "low-RAM" version of it containing the SFS file and a "Z-drive" SFS file for the drivers, so that puppy can load into 256MB RAM. The latter may require extra installation steps that we can work out.

- I also added the latest versions of the rest of zigbert's "P" tools.

For now, I have added all upgrades I am aware of, so please tell me of any further programs I should add to 5.2.8.6.

Gparted could really use an update. It is up to version 0.16.2

Just to add to this.
Luci 529,THD is the only distro that enabled the tap pad on my netbook from boot.
All the recent ones slackos, precises do not have the tap pad working.
I have had to fix it each time by editing the flsynclient script and throwing into root.
Forgotten which it is but one of these is the culprit. Easy fix though, but a pain when you first struggle with Puppy Linux.

Code:

 
    TouchpadOff                      = 0
   
    TapButton1                          = 1
    TapButton2                          = 3
    TapButton3                          = 2
     
     ClickPad                = 0

Hi Richard

I noticed that Precise had 2 copies of synclient in 2 locations.

Tried the above pet installed onto the 20130921 iso - reran Basic Setup afterwards and also restarted the X-server.

Regret to say, as you predicted, no difference in my touchpad behaviour was observed....

Cheers
peebee

PostPosted: Mon 23 Sep 2013, 07:55    Post subject: flsynclient not persistent on startup after save file made  

Richard,

I,m pretty sure the culprit for flsynclient settings not working after save file is first used is due to ~/Startup/load-tochpad-settings script.

I tested 5.2.8.6 yesterday and found flsynclient not persistent. I used the live USB I set up for Mom's web surfing ( I hate doing all the security sweeps for XP and Puppy turned on wireless that XP couldn't.) I used to manually edit xorg.conf to enable tapping and left-right scrolling,not fun.

I commented out lines 2&3 in load-touchpad-settings in the savefile. Shutdown the laptop, then restarted and everything from ~/.flsynclient appeared in the gui when I started Flsynclient from the menu.

I did unsquashfs/mksquashfs on lupu-5.2.8.sfs. I will test tonight when I get home from work.

Hope this helps.


Jeff
