After a clean install of QT 6.0.5 to flashdrive, I note
the yellow First Time SeaMonkey box still appears
on every launch of SeaMonkey.
Its intended purpose to only appear once is not working.

Could the symlink

ln -snf /usr/lib/seamonkey/seamonkey /usr/bin/seamonkey

be permanently included by default please in future releases.


It should have disappeared after a reboot.

But, that was an act of desparation. You guys who have this problem, have to help me.

Download the attached, then:

# gunzip seamonkey.gz
# chmod 755 seamonkey

Copy it to /usr/bin/, replacing old 'seamonkey' -- if you have a symlink there, delete that first.

Now, in a terminal:

# seamonkey > /root/seamonkey.log 2>&1

Let us know if you get the popup, well you should, as that is the problem.

Exit seamonkey, start again, notice the two >>:

# seamonkey >> /root/seamonkey.log 2>&1

Then post the file /root/seamonkey.log here. As an attachment, you might have to gzip it, or just append ".gz".

unable to get webcam to work on dell inspiron mini netbook--it ran guvcview under slacko 5.3 and precise 5.6 and 5.7. in tahr i was able to get some basic webcam program (the name of which i can't recall--camsomething...) to work, but after the upgrade to 6.0.5, that wouldn't work either. i uninstalled all the webcam stuff, reinstalled the latest guvcview from the PPM and still no luck. any suggestions?

thanks in advance.

(other than that it really is running extraordinarily well off the usb 2 drive.)

PostPosted: Tue 18 Feb 2014, 16:50    Post subject: Testing Quirky Tahr 6.0.5
Subject description: (Plus dual personality experiment)
 

This was a fresh install to a USB2 stick using method "D" in XP with 7-Zip (Portable) and Win32DiskImager.exe (V 0.7). I made no attempt to boot from that however, electing instead to copy over the contents of the second f2fs partition to an empty f2fs partition on my SSD. Vmlinuz was copied over to a bootable fat32 2GB SD card. That card had been prepared with firstly the HP utility and then Syslinux 4.04.
Syslinux.cfg was reduced to just the following single line of code.
Code:
default /quirky/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda7 rw

The following pets were installed:
    xdotool-2.20110530.1-3|no description provided
    PupControl-2.3|PupControl panel (preferred over later version)
    cursor_themes-1-1|themes for mouse cursor
    PupSnap-1.8_Scrot-0.8_32Bit|PupSnap screen capture (preferred over later version)
    PupClockset-2.2.1|PupClockset manager
    flashplayer11-11.2.202.336|Adobe Flash Player 11 browser plugin and Preferences. Note, this may not work on older PCs, use instead an earlier 11.x or even 10.x
    getflash-1.5-1|GetFlash Install Flashplayer
    chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_32.0.1700.107|Extra ffmpeg codecs for the Chromium Browser
    chromium-browser_32.0.1700.107|Chromium browser
    chromium-codecs-ffmpeg_32.0.1700.107|Free ffmpeg codecs for the Chromium Browser
    chromium-chromedriver_32.0.1700.107|WebDriver driver for the Chromium Browser
    thunderbird-16.0.1|Thunderbird mail reader (Subsequently updated to 24.0.3)
    tickr-0.6.0-i686|RSS Feed Reader

Experiment:
I will detail this in a separate “How To” if there is any interest and I am not shot at dawn. A single press of the LH Windows key brings up an alternate Metro type interface with some live tiles. Optionally you can boot straight to that rather than the normal desktop and are free to move between them.
A 1080p slideshow consisting of just 3 slides can be found here: (Chrome/Chromium/Firefox required to view)

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/10IkmdBoBDYnJHdrPXuMNnn0lcUTVxiN6faGFvUx1070/edit?pli=1#slide=id.p

(Click on present and then move between the slides with your left & right arrow keys)

SLIDE 1 – Shows the standard desktop with just tickr-0.6.0 running across the bottom.
SLIDES 2 & 3 – Show the alternate interface.

PostPosted: Tue 18 Feb 2014, 20:46    Post subject: Suggested feature for Quirky Tahr  

Barry, this suggested useful feature was absent in Puppy and the
same in Quirky Tahr.

From one who cannot code from scratch, could you please devise a
labour-saving way of copy and pasting complex command lines
from say a web page, directly to the console terminal to avoid
making typing mistakes.

The mouse right click copy works in the browser, but the console
has no right click drop down box with a paste facility at all.

Others may find this useful as well, thanks.

Lxterminal which is available in Puppy Package Manager supports copy/paste.

+ open built-in terminal
+ switch to browser
+ highlight (select) some text
+ switch back to terminal
+ middle button click will paste

PostPosted: Wed 19 Feb 2014, 04:53    Post subject: boot codes?  

Installed version 6.0.5 8gb USB image to a stick, and can boot fine an old DELL D531 laptop, wired and wireless connections and YASSM samba mounter working without a hickup, great.

BUT

on another PC booting ends with a black screen and I can't find the right mix of boot codes to fix it, can anyone suggest a method to discover the right mix, please?

On the same PC I can boot knoppix 7.0.4 with boot code
knoppix nomodeset.
So I tried booting quirky tahr the same way with
quirky nomodeset
but all I get is a black screen with vertical green stripes.

PostPosted: Wed 19 Feb 2014, 05:37    Post subject: Quirky Tahr 6.0.5
Subject description: questions, suggestions
 

Hi @BarryK and all.

I have Quirky Tahr installed on a 16 gb flash drive usb-2.0 (f2fs).
Currently, version 6.0.5 Quirky Tahr (upgrade from 6.0.2).
Computer desktop, Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6750, 4 GB RAM.
The system works OK. Works super fast.

I have the following questions, suggestions:
1. Quirky Tahr a system restore, but the restore takes a long time (I know - depending on the size of the system). Well if the message contained a percentage of the recovery made​​ ?.
2. Installation on a memory stick (The installation script, not the image), the system leaves a memory stick (16GB and 32GB - Toshiba) is always 616 MB (?) Space, checked a few stick and always with the same result. Like this place free and unallocated use?
3. Several times I tried to compile the nvidia driver (Used the latest getnvidia), but always fail, always receive error messages about bad paths or lack directories. Is there or will there be a version nvidia driver to the kernel k.3.12.6(i686)* ? in the file .pet or .sfs? I have NVIDIA Corporation card GF218 [GeForce GF 220].
* Or the new announced today Kernel 3.12.11.

Thank you Barry.K for Quirky Tahr Very Happy

Subject description: Cursor_themes-1-1
 

Help!
-recently service pack upgraded to QT 6.0.5

-Want "cursor_themes-1.1.pet" so I opened PPM/QPM and found in repo..however,tried to download from every mirror popped "Error, file not found"
-Then chose "Configure PPM" and "updated" repo info.
-Again tried to download "cursor_themes-1.1-pet" but still not found in download mirrors.
-So "Google-d" the same as ".pet"...found at Ibiblio mirror so I selected it but was offered as ".gz"
-I saved and extracted this file to /root/Downloads
Now what do I do to make it work?

Many TNX to all the fellas for great help.
QT6.0.5 is working great on 8GB USB stick..And I am looking forward to April7 2014 when Ubuntu releases Trusty Tahr {and the repos have been firmed up}
I will be very happy to commit QT 6.1(?) to hard disk partition!-TNX again!
