Thank you for your reply.

I can edit & save the PDF in LibreOffice.

Somewhere there must be an extension that equips LibreOffice to Export As a PDF to text ... I'll keep looking.

Thanks again.

ps. I avoid Google anything as they are not my friend any more than Russia is a friend to the Ukraine.

I have successfully installed LH64M on my Dell Optiplex 740 Enhanced, with 3 Gb of RAM. I had a problem getting the savefile to save, then found that either Ubuntu or Mint had formatted sda5 to some weird filesystem I'd never heard of; using GPartEd to reformat it ext4 solved the problem. And despite my n00bness, I managed to update Firefox and get it to run from the Browser button (although the icon changed and. I can't figure out how to change it back).

I've been having serious problems with getting any OS to run on this machine. It came with Ubuntu Karmic and upgraded all the way to Trusty...but then a tweak was found to be unwanted and I could not get it to revert. Since that event, I was unable to reinstall Ubuntu or install Mint, and was very happy to get LH6M to be so compliant.

So even an Aspie like me can get Mariner to run well. Any word on TaZoC's return and a Final version?

LibreOffice is not working... I have downloaded the SFS and have it in the correct directory, but something is happening. When I click on the icon, it says

File doesn't exist, or I can't acess it: /opt/libreoffice4.0/share/xdg/startcernter.desktop

When I go to the directory, /opt/libreoffice4.0/share/ is there but there is no xdg subdirectory. I've check "hidden files" just in case.

Any ideas?

Hugs,
Moss

Subject description: Printer Support
 

New issue: Configuring my printer.

I have a Brother MFC-465CN. Brother makes a printer driver for this printer, available as either a .DEB file or a .RPM file. I have no idea which one (or neither, or both) Lighthouse can read. CUPS has Brother printers built in, but not this model.

Are you running "LH64 Mariner"? It has it all built-in. And when you boot from DVD, you "can" select which/all additions that you want loaded from the DVD. If you chose all, you have everything integrated upon arrival at desktop.

Let us know
P.S. Did you start from DVD or from some other approach?

@zaivala : I have no experience with Lighthouse, but there is information here about installing printers in Fatdog.

Beyond that, other LIghthouse regulars will need to give you support.

The difference, besides Lighthouse being easier to understand in general than FatDog64, is that Lighthouse is based on Slax while FatDog64 is based on Ubuntu Precise... so installing a printer in FatDog64 would be "Get the .DEB" and I have no idea what file format is in Slax/Slackware. Hence the question.

I also do not know how the CUPS info in slacko32 is any different from the one in the 64-bit version -- there are several MFC drivers in CUPS but not the one for this printer (as I think I mentioned already). In Puppy, I just downloaded the DEB version of the driver from Brother.

PostPosted: Mon 05 May 2014, 07:58    Post subject: Thunderbird 64 bit  

As I love this puplet, I started a little support in my blog, repo and Puppy forum (first, QEMU: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=88604).
Today is the time for another software, Thunderbird. Claws-mail built-in (my favourite) isn't compiled with OpenSSL support. So, I can't use as it is, I'd have to compile it and I haven't got time, right now.
Download Thunderbird package from my repository, PET section (see my sign for address).

Please, if you want to share, don't link directly my repo resources. They periodically will be overwritten by newer versions or can be moved for more efficient folder organization or for hosting reasons. Don't leave orphan links all over the web, browse repository instead (that is safe to link).


Enjoy! Smile

PostPosted: Sun 01 Jun 2014, 19:33    Post subject: How to read Audio CD CDDA?  

I'm trying to copy some audio story files to a MP3 player so our son may more conveniently listen to them.

I cannot see them using the usual LH64 apps but VLC generates this:

Quote:
VLC can't recognize the input's format:
The format of 'cdda:///dev/dvd' cannot be detected.


What app should I use for this, please?

I have a 32-bit Netbook and another laptop w/Linux I can try if not this 64-bit.

Thanks!

edoc: You have omitted a rather important piece of information. Where are these story files? Are they tracks on an audio CD?

Yes, sorry, CD's.

Keeping the little guy occupied on drives is important to sanity - trying to store, handle, & change CD's in that cramped space is not good for sanity ...

Can VLC play the tracks as an audio CD? I am confused by the message:
Quote:
The format of 'cdda:///dev/dvd' cannot be detected.

I don't understand this statement. Does it have anything to do with the task at hand?
