Thank you, Step, Andres.

Added only some fixes, new programs and Fred's scripts adapted to work with all available boot methods without problem (which was the most difficult part for him I think).

Hi All,

*** Installing Spotify on Debian/DebianDog ***

Installing Spotify on standard Debian Wheezy needs a workaround:
It depends on libssl0.9.8 package, which is only available from 'squeeze'.
Not a real problem, it can be installed besides the newer (Wheezy) libssl1.0.0 package.

DebianDog needs slightly different workaround:
Before installing Spotify install this modified libssl0.9.8 package:
https://googledrive.com/host/0ByBgCDlZZ8K5bUsxVnhCTkhoZDA/Packages/libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-4squeeze14-debiandog-mod_i386.deb
Open a terminal in the directory where it is downloaded and do:
Code:
dpkg -i libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-4squeeze14-debiandog-mod_i386.deb


Then, if you'd like to install latest spotify, do in terminal as root:
Code:
echo 'deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free' >> /etc/apt/sources.list
# If you want to verify the downloaded packages,
# you will need to add the public key
apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 94558F59
apt-get update
apt-get install spotify-client


Or, to install older version of Spotify, download one of the .deb packages from here:
https://github.com/olejon/spotcommander/wiki/DowngradeSpotify
Quoted from above website, might be important to do first:
Quote:
Uninstall current version
Open a desktop terminal as the user running Spotify and run these commands:

rm -r ~/.config/spotify
rm -r ~/.cache/spotify
sudo apt-get -y purge spotify-client

Choose a 32bit version.
To install: Open a terminal in the directory where it is downloaded and do:
Code:
apt-get update # might be needed
# Change below to exact package filename:
dpkg -i <spotify-client-version>.deb # << change this
apt-get -f install # this will install all required dependencies


Alternatively here's a Spotify-portable v0.6.4 wine version (NOT required to have wine installed):
Surprisingly it's a whole lot smaller than the native Linux version.
Found a way to prevent automatic upgrading (nasty habit of the Windows spotify version)
Spotify-0.6.4.tar.gz:
https://googledrive.com/host/0ByBgCDlZZ8K5bUsxVnhCTkhoZDA/Packages/Spotify-0.6.4.tar.gz
Run the 'spotify' script in the extracted folder 'Spotify-0.6.4'.
See more info in 'ReadMe-SpotifyPortable-wine'
Or load module: spotify-0.6.4-wine-portable.squashfs:
https://googledrive.com/host/0ByBgCDlZZ8K5bUsxVnhCTkhoZDA/Packages/spotify-0.6.4-wine-portable.squashfs

Uploaded Abiword sfs modules compatible with docx (the old one can't open docx):
http://www.smokey01.com/saintless/DebianDog/Extra-modules/
Direct download (use right click save link as):
023-abiword-2.8.2-docx.squashfs - 4Mb.
023-abiword-2.8.6-docx.squashfs - 3,1Mb.
Old versions but considered as stable compared to the latest Abiword (from what I read). Work on both DebianDog-Wheezy versions and DebianDog-Squeeze.
Added all needed libs and (except libjpeg.so.7) all are official Wheezy but included in /opt/lib to save space (much was not neded for Abiword to work). The official Debian Abiword package + dependencies add too much installed with apt-get.

Some extra packages (mostly from Puppy adapted from Jrb) - tested enough but more testing is welcome:
Yassm-smbclient-mpscan - Download - safe to install (conflicts with debian samba and smbclient).
Samba-tng-rcrsn-0.5-rc1 - Download - safe to install (conflicts with debian samba and smbclient).
Osmo - Download - safe to install (conflicts with debian osmo package which has too many dependencies).
Notecase - Download
Apulse - Download - pulseaudio emulator for ALSA compiled on DebianDog.

Edit: And one more extra sfs module (use right click Save link as):
024-goffice-lupu-528JP-1.squashfs - 5,4Mb
Contains Abiword-2.8.6, Gnumeric-1.10.13, Inkscapelite, ssconvert, ssgrep, ssindex. Converted from Lupu module. Compatible with DebianDog-Wheezy and Squeeze versions.

In case someone uses separate kernel module all kernel modules replaced. No need to download them again. The changes are only in initrd files for live-boot-2x and porteus-boot for extra options:

live-boot-2x - added whiteout files support for sfs modules. This is preaparation for next DebianDog update with Improved RemasterCow script with added option to include whiteout files. It means modules created with RemasterCow will support not only installed programs and added/changed files, but also uninstalled programs and removed files included in the main 01-filesystem.squashfs module. Or if this option is activated from the user in new RemasterCow - loading the extra module will mark the uninstalled programs/files (from the main module) as whiteout (removed) for the system.

porteus-boot (porteus initrd in latest DebianDog is moded already. The change is added now in all initrd files for porteus-boot in separate kernel modules) - support for systemd boot as described from Fred here.

PostPosted: Mon 27 Oct 2014, 02:23    Post subject: changing default browser desktop icon to point to iceweasel  

Hi Toni,

Summer here so hardly on computer just now. However, downloaded the new DebianDog jwm iso soon after you released it and trying to set it up with iceweasel just now. However, seems to be a problem setting default_web-browser symlink to point to /usr/bin/iceweasel (which is itself a symlink also). After attempting to do so either manually or via Set Default App on clicking the desktop browser icon I get the pop-up message: No run action specified for files of this type (application/x-sharedlib)

I quickly read back through latest posts but don't see anything mentioning this issue from anyone else or perhaps I just missed a post about it. Worked fine with previous DebianDog. Have you or anyone else come across the problem and know the fix?

Otherwise, all looks fine so far.

Best wishes, William

Hi, William.

Maybe changing Rox with new version is the cause of this problem. I will need some time to check this.

Quick fixes to test now:

1. Fix 1: Point default_web-browser link to /usr/bin/firefox

2. Fix 2: After chaging the link and popup message "No run action specified", try right click on the desktop icon -> Sym link WWW -> Set run action -> exec "$@"
Click on the icon again.
Then do the same again but this time removing exec: right click on the desktop icon -> Sym link WWW -> Set run action -> "$@"
It worked for me but didn't test it much yet.

Hi, William.

Just tested the old DebianDog version and iceweasel link does not work there also. BTW you can find older versions here.
The problem is /usr/lib/iceweasel/iceweasel executable is shown as library file in Rox. It has nothing to do with upgraded Rox (all settings are from the previous one). I can only guess the iceweasel package was replaced/upgraded in Debian repository since the link does not work now with previous DebianDog version.
Anyway both fixes above work. I will add the second in next version changes.

Toni

Hi Toni,

Yes, I used your suggested fix 1 and the desktop icon starts iceweasel up fine after that thanks.

Subject description: SMP kernel for Oct 14 2014 Debian Dog iso?
 

I apologize if this is the wrong thread, or if this question has already been answered.

I'm new to this forum software and have so far been unable to figure out how to search a *thread* (like this one) which contains 30 pages.

My question: Is there an SMP kernel available for the Oct 14 2014 Debian Dog release?

Thank you.

Hi, Ether.

Two SMP kernels available for download + instruction here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=774459#774459
026-kernel-3.14-Pae.tar.gz archive contains kernel 3.14-0.bpo.1-686-pae
022-kernel-686-pae.zip archive contains kernel 3.2.0-4-686-pae
The kernels are (and will be) compatible with any DebianDog-Wheezy (previous or future version).
023-kernel-3.9.11-porteus.zip also contains SMP kernel but it is from Porteus (not Debian official kernel which means you will have some troubles to run programs like VirtualBox for example).

Toni

Hi, Worktowork!

Unfortunately full install does not have option to make separate modules from installed programs and you can't load/unload sfs (squashfs) modules in full install.
If you use frugal install just install Qupzilla and use RemasterCow (Create module from changes) to make separate squashfs module with Qupzilla.
Instruction how to use RemasterCow you can find here (just use the default settings):
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=773214#773214
Or use apt2sfs:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=773224#773224

Adding Russian language with indicator is explained well here from Sergey (Sklimkin)
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=756670#756670
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=756719#756719
If you do not need language indicator you can use Keyboard Layout from menu to add Russian language and Alt+Shift or other combination to switch languages:

Briefly, what are the relative merits of 022 vs 026? I am running Pentium D (dual core) 3.4GHz, 3GB RAM.

Thank you.
