I checked out a couple of my scripts and they worked nicely
with Quirky 6.1

Compression 1.8 and Graphpaper 1.2
____________________________________________________

I was checking mtpaint 3.44.51 with Precise571 and Quirky and I found that
the theme was causing the boxes to be black. The entries
can't be easily seen. The solution is simple ---> change the GTK theme.

Previous versions have the same problem.

I upgraded to 6.1.1 and the wallpaper setter seemed to be broken for me. I no longer can simply drop an image file in the /usr/share/backgrounds folder and set it as my wallpaper with the options of stretched, centred or tiled. When I tried to select an image, Quirky throws out an error message:

"Error loading backdrop image:
Failed to open file '/usr/share/backgrounds/160/snow-leopard-server-wallpaper.jpg': No such file or directory
Backdrop removed."

I tried copying of the image file to the 160 folder and it worked. Am I doing something wrong? I don't think the same image needs to exist in two places.

There seems to be a small bug in /usr/sbin/background_reshape. In line 67 of /usr/sbin/background_reshape, change "$NEWVERT -lt $IMAGEVERT[" to "$NEWVERT -le $IMAGEVERT" (without the quotes) and the problem should go away.

Edit: removed line number note (confirmed by broomdodger)


Thanks for finding that.

I applied what is (hopefully) a generic fix, at end of file (I did not change that "lt"):

Code:
#140107 fix if image not in subdir...
if [ ! -f /usr/share/backgrounds/${ASPECTRATIO}/${IMAGEBASE} ];then
 echo "/usr/share/backgrounds/${IMAGEBASE}" > /tmp/qwallpaper_reshaped #set_bg will read this.
else
 echo "/usr/share/backgrounds/${ASPECTRATIO}/${IMAGEBASE}" > /tmp/qwallpaper_reshaped #set_bg will read this.
fi

Testers have reported, after applying a Service Pack, that epdfview was broken, missing library symlinks.

I found the cause. My script that creates Service Packs was overlooking symlinks that have changed, that is, point to a different target file.

I have put in that extra check, and now the Service Packs are correct. I have had to re-upload them. It is only the poppler library that is affected, in the 6.0.1_TO_6.1.1 and 6.1_TO_6.1.1 Service Packs.

If you want to fix it, you can probably uninstall the Service Pack, then download and install the new one (pet file has the same name).

I installed Quirky 6.1 to a hard drive partition on my Acer desktop pc.

Computer
Processor 4x Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU 540 @ 3.07GHz
Memory 2975MB (59MB used)
Machine Type Physical machine
Operating System Quirky - 6.1.1
User Name root (root)
Date/Time Mon 06 Jan 2014 10:14:00 PM EST

I had installed the devx and 6.1 to 6.1.1 service packs, then saw the
new ones so I uninstalled the old and installed the new ones.

The right click problem is gone when opening a terminal.
No problems so far.

Subject description: my tests
 

Greetings to all from -11F land.
From Q6.1 I selected "quirky version upgrade mgr" {which was in "multimedia" category}..clicked on "6.0.1 to 6.1.1"...waited for a dialog box {nothing} no download status/progress or "wheel of death" loading indicator..but i noticed network "blinky"was very busy..so i went about my browsing biz and about 2 minutes later dialog box popped up that Q6.1.1 had been installed.
re-booted fine..all my stuff was there..checked out Epdf viewr, FLSclient..{my previous problems} and everything is running smooth.Great job fellas!
Now is there any way to manage power with my netbook?..I would like to "hibernate" when closing "the lid"
Also need missing codecs for my VLC 2.0.0

I applied the above fix to my Quirky 6.1.1 and the problem is gone. Thanks! I also discovered that if I symlink /usr/sbin/set_bg to ~/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/SendTo/.image_jpg, I could set a jpg file as background by right clicking that file in a rox-filer window.

VLC 2.1.2 is available here:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/x86/packages/pet_packages-quirky6/

It also needs qt-482 which is in the same directory.

Many TNX! Billtoo! {and Barry K. too}..as a nooby quirk head, thanx for the rapid response and link to pet stuff..I am sure many others will find link very useful..I installed VLC and Qt as you recommend and working fine as Q6.1.1 is running smooth on acer netbook {intel Atom(tm) 2-core/1GB ram}.installed sda6 {6GB partition)
Is there a way I can set power/management settings?..I would like to "standby or hibernate" when i "close lid" display.

Quirky 6.1.1 usb install method D

First impressions... Fast Cool Even from usb2 -- Corsair Voyager 16GB

Had not expected this speed...really nice

The keyboard problem Charlie16 reported as solved on Jan2 is back in Quirky 6.1.1. Keyboard layout b-latin1 does not work, cannot be activated... e.g. ** Hqppy Nezyeqr Bqrry ** Wink

The Lxterminal 0.1.9-i686 from repo does not work.

Momanager does not run without devx for me.
EDIT Should learn to read more carefully..

Embarassed

Firefox 26 directly from Mozilla does not run. What is needed to get this working...It worked in every Puppy I ever tried...

My latest Dutch langpack is working just fine.

All in all I am really excited about Quirky!
Big Thank You Barry!!!!!
May the god of christmas hiatuses give you plenty more of those Laughing
