However, if the browser-default script is inconsistent in some scenarios, a possible replacement would be the well-tested 'defaults-chooser' utility (below) which correctly appends the "$@" argument to the new browser selection. Plus, it has the advantage of an intuitive interface for quickly changing many additional default applications in usr/local/bin/.
Thanks for that recommendation. Does any one object to my adding 'defaults-chooser' to lupu and removing 'browser-default' altogether? Is there any reason 'defaults-chooser' (from Precise Pup) would not work in lupu? That is my intent if there is no problem with it.

BTW, I plan omit it from the launch bar because it does not seem like something that would be used much, after the initial settings. I assume the launch bar is for applications one uses every day (or so).

Adding 'defaults-chooser' would be a very useful addition. Cool Very Happy

The latest version is here:
Defaults Chooser 0.8.8
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=735078#735078

I am testing now. Twisted Evil Wink Very Happy

Edit:
So far seems to be working for me. V 0.8.8

What is this program suppose to do Question Confused

Menu->Graphic->Pictureviewer drag and drop images

I can run it, but nothing seems to happen.
It opens, you drag an image to it, and nothing happens.

Sure does not work as a default image viewer.

Edit:
For .png image files only.
Still do not know what it really is used for.

For me, it is nothing I need.

PostPosted: Wed 20 Nov 2013, 19:30    Post_subject: Lucid Pup 5.2.8.6-20131120  

I am uploading the 20131120 version of the lupu 5.2.8.6 ISO files. They contain all of the fixes discussed since the 20131114 versions.

This time, I have also updated the update history for both 20131114 and 20131120.

The history and link to the download site are here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=726108#726108

The direct link to the downloads is:
http://www.mediafire.com/folder/dc28t2rkua3kw/Disk_Images-5.2.8.6

I hope this wraps it up, but am open to further essential fixes. Thank you to all who contributed, directing me to the updated packages.

UPDATE:
Oops! I missed the final pfbpanel update.

Re-uploads complete.
Richard

Here is Slimboat 1.1.43, prepared by OscarTalks with the addition of the file that sets it as defaultbrowser in Lucid. It starts up more quickly than Firefox and is the only alternative to FF/Seamonkey for those who want to use a latest version browser in Lucid (Opera 12.16 does run but has a serious problem in throwing beaucoup error messages) . Adblocker included. Nice package imho.

http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/Slimboat-1.1.43-Lucid.pet

There is one little glitch unfortunately, not serious, maybe they will fix it next version if it is not peculiar to Lucid. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=738176&search_id=471961491#738176

OscarTalks also has two versions of Skype 4.2.0.11 for Lucid If a few could test I could put it in the repo.

rerwin,

Thank you very much for doing this update to Lupu (Lucid Puppy) Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Are you going to update Lupu3HD to the 20131120 changes?

I have to use Lupu3HD to have a driver for my USB wireless network adapter.
The Linux kernel that is in normal Lupu 5.2.8.6 will not support it.

think this may be the reason, as stated here by tempestuous.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=513417#513417
Seems the slight difference, in the Linux kernel, in Lupu3hd, is a factor in support for this needed driver.

bigpup,
Re 3HD and sulu: Yes, I intend to upgrade them, too, probably next week, as I am distracted for the next 2 days. Also, I would like to wait a bit for any "fallout" from the latest version, in case there is more to fix.

Regarding those later kernels, I am frustrated that lupu cannot access recent versions of SFS files, as in Precise pup and slacko. I understand that the issue is a capability that appeared in the later kernels but is not backport-able to lupu. But is it available in the kernels used by 3HD and sulu? If so, can anyone versify whether those pups can access precise's main SFS file? Or is there more we need in those lupus to make it work?

Hi Larry

Slimboat looks interesting at 22MB - and your pet works fine in other Puppies as well as Lupu - e.g. Slacko5.6 - so you are maybe limiting it's take-up by including lupu in its name? I was able to do that well known test of playing video from BBC i-Player with no problems.

Chromium 27 works OK on lupu-5286 - not the latest version but entirely usable apart from a typically nagging message on startup about out of date system.

Download an sfs (48MB) from:
http://e-nautia.com/peebee/disk/share/chromium/chromium-27.0.1421.0.sfs - the sfs can be directly converted to a pet if so desired.

Cheers
Peter

It's OscarTalks pet basically, all I did was add /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser. Here is his thread. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=737334&search_id=1655907420#737334 His skype also has a version for Slacko. OscarTalks also has a version of Firefox 24 Extended Support Release (or whatever ESR stands for).

I have found that Google removes all previous versions of Chrome from any of its sites and even prevails upon the old apps type sites to to not offer them. Previous versions of Chromium and Iron are available though, but their insistence on the latest version makes me think that the only latest versions should go into the official Lucid repo, hence my interest in Slimboat. Of course, posting in this thread allows people to use Chromium 27 etc if they want to. But oh yes, I think the Chromium-based browsers refuse to install add-ons such as Adblock unless you are using the latest version.

Lupu3HD5.2.8.6- 2131124

The latest Slacko 5.6 sfs or Precise sfs file I cannot access.

Could this have anything to do with using a different compression method that Lupu does not recognize?

PostPosted: Sun 24 Nov 2013, 20:54    Post_subject: 5.2.8.6 Three-headed Dog and Super Lucid Pups Updated  

I have uploaded new versions of the "experimental kernel" versions of lucid pup 5.2.8.6, as 30131124. The only differences from the 20131120 versions are the addition of the 'usb-devices' script, needed to obtain USB device information in lupusuper and later kernels, and the update of the browser home page to link to Barry's new blog.

To change the blog link in the 20131120 lupus, enter the following command in a console window:
Code:
sed -i 's%/blog2/"%/news/"%' /usr/share/doc/home.htm


Radky tells me he is experimenting with lupus based on kernels from dpup and upup, with only 2 problems, so far. Based on that work, I would like to offer alternative kernels for lupusuper, once we resolve or reconcile those problems.

Regarding xz compression, radky told me that it was added only after the kernel used by 3HD and is supported in lupusuper, although probably not fully. Such SFS files can be mounted, but there may not be complete support for creating those files. Please report any limitations, so that I might address them.

Maybe this also has something to do with sfs file mounting.
