Service Pack for V2 & V3 :- (sp3.pet)

Since V2 of this Pup the BBC & CBSN TV news icons on wbar have launched the channels in non-decorated windowed mode as opposed to full-screen.

This service pack (sp3) addresses the issue that vlc does not always launch center screen when run in windowed
mode and the window then has to be moved slightly to center it.

The pack contains 2 revised launcher scripts which both call a new script (/root/noob/center_active_window.sh)
which ensures that the launched window is centralised.

PostPosted: Sat 13 May 2017, 04:38    Post subject: TV/PVR Xenial Pup V3 (32bit) - Released 22nd December 2016  

Chromium / Thunderbird / Pale Moon

A new 32-bit Chromium pet (chromium-58.0.3029.96-i486+pepper_25.0.0.171-etp) is now available
for this Pup via the following direct download link:

https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0B_iVVJCd9q09ZkhVYnNiSlRZck0

    To upgrade:

    1. Download the pet.

    2. Use PPM to uninstall the existing Chromium pet.

    3. Install the new pet, test and then if happy, click on the desktop save icon.


As previously the new pet is based on Alien Bob's build and includes the final 32-bit Chrome widevine modules.
Netflix will hopefully work if anyone has an account to test that aspect.

Thunderbird_45.8.0+build1 may be installed via PPM having first used it to uninstall any previous version.

Pale Moon may be updated to 27.3.0 (32-bit) via the Palemoon-updater item on the Internet sub-menu.

Subject description: Optional pet
 

Optional pet - (HDEV_ScreenSaver.pet)

This pet provides a second manually invoked screen saver. It provides a live rotating HD feed from the 4 earth
viewing cameras aboard the ISS. Do not use it if you are on a metered internet connection!

The ISS is on a 90 minute orbit travelling at a speed of 17139 mph at an altitude of 256 miles.
For half that time it is therefore in darkness with no video.
The following link can be used to check on its current status and location:

https://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/ESRS/HDEV/
Edit 30th June:
The following link to the German "columbus eye" project is better than the nasa one above
for checking on the current status and position of the ISS.

http://columbuseye.uni-bonn.de/live/

The pet does not use the stream available in the above link but instead uses vlc to play the
720p stream intended for iphones. The keyboard letter "f" toggles between windowed and full screen mode.

Whilst intended for TV/PVR Pup which runs vlc in borderless mode it should work in any Pup that contains vlc.
A menu item is created on the "Desktop" menu and the desktop file itself may be dragged onto the desktop to provide
a quick launch method. It can just be used to impress the other dogs in the kennels rather than as a screen-saver.

If viewing in windowed mode in this Pup press ctrl+h to toggle the vlc control panel on/off in order to start
recording the stream or to take snapshots. ( Handy if you spot a UFO or flying pig) Smile

Enjoy.

Another Optional pet - (startup_sound-mk2.pet)

(Use in any Pup with suitable modifications to the player)

This pet provides a choice of 4 startup sounds or clips.
OOTB clip1 is set as the default which plays the same jingle used by forum member "peebee" in some of his recent Pups.

The player is set as mpv but can easily be changed to another of your choice which has the ability to play then exit.
The script in question is reproduced below and is commented. Additional clips may be added.

An unusual feature of the script is that it will only trigger a sound clip if booting is complete AND a working
internet connection is present. Thus hearing the sound gives a double reassurance.

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# This is /root/Startup/startup-sound  ETP May 2017 - (Based on an idea by forum member "peebee")
# NOTES:
#
# 1. Change sleep period if need be, so that the end of the played sound clip coincides with desktop completion & network establishment.
# 2. Change player using suitable syntax. For example in the case of vlc that would be:-       player=cvlc --play-and-exit
# 3. Add further clips to the list to reference additional sound clips of your choice.
#
player=mpv
clip1=/usr/share/audio/sys-login.mp3
clip2=/usr/share/audio/o95.wav
clip3=/usr/share/audio/halfunc.mp3
clip4=/usr/share/audio/Interface_complete.mp3
#
sleep 6
echo -e "GET http://google.com HTTP/1.0\n\n" | nc google.com 80 > /dev/null 2>&1
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
        $player $clip1 # Change numeral to select another clip
fi

Chromium / Thunderbird

A new 32-bit Chromium pet (chromium-59.0.3071.86-i486+pepper_25.0.0.171-etp) is now available
for this Pup via the following direct download link:

https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0B_iVVJCd9q09aHA2bGZXUjFTWnM

To upgrade:

1. Download the pet.

2. Use PPM to uninstall the existing Chromium pet.

3. Install the new pet, test and then if happy, click on the desktop save icon.

As previously, the new pet is based on Alien Bob's build and includes the final 32-bit Chrome widevine modules.
Netflix will hopefully work if anyone has an account to test that aspect.

Thunderbird_52.1.1+build1 may be installed via PPM having first used PPM to uninstall any previous version.

Notes:

This and future versions of Chrome/Chromium require GTK3 which is already present in this Pup.
That may pose a problem for some Slacko based Pups which presently do not include GTK3.
The new GTK3 support should provide improved integration of GTK themes within the browser.

Subject description: A modern look and feel for 2017.
 

VERSION 4: - tvpvrpupv4.img.xz (689MB) & md5sum & screenshots can be found here:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B_iVVJCd9q09WFI4OWlyS1luYmM?usp=sharing

All previously optional pets & service packs have been incorporated.

Main new additions in V4:

Firefox 54.0 (32-bit) (Both Firefox & Pale Moon contain the Complete YouTube Saver version 5.7.36)
openvpn-2.3.14
Conky_ppp0_tun_show-V1|Simple desktop display of IP address tun/ppp0/eth0/wlan0
simplescreenrecorder_0.3.8+1-ppa1
tickr_0.6.4-1|GTK-based highly graphically-customizable Feed Ticker (Set to Reuters OOTB)
additional libs for vlc plugins plus extra codecs
update_flash-1.8|Download and install Flash plugin
adwaita-icon-theme_3.18.0|default icon theme of GNOME small subset
humanity-icon-theme_0.6.10.1|Humanity Icon theme
WebRTC with a choice of Talky.io, Skype for Web 10.2.0.3000 and appear.in.
Xpad 4.5.0

Further cosmetic improvements in Chromium with a custom search page background and
dark theme in YouTube. These are provided by the Stylish extension 1.8.1 & the "Infinity" extension.

Items updated:

thunderbird_52.1.1 (Release update channel)

chromium-59.0.3071.86-i486+pepper_25.0.0.171-etp|Access the Internet

Pale Moon 27.3.0 (32-bit)

Kodi/vlc Changes:

The NASA & TED Talks addons are not currently functional/available and have been removed.
To compensate 2 more UK TV addons have been added together with Exodus.
The legality of Exodus varies by location. If you opt to use it to view or download
media please use one of the free VPNs built into this Pup.

OOTB the following download paths are set:
Kodi Apple Trailers & Exodus addons are both set to /root/Downloads/
vlc is set to /root/vlc_recordings
The Compete YouTube Saver (Firefox & Pale Moon) is set to /root/Complete YouTube Saver
Video Player (Red Icon on Wbar labelled PVR) has all 3 of the above:-
/root/Downloads
/root/Complete YouTube Saver
/root/vlc_recordings

Please see the PVR notes in the original post in this thread re the essential need to change all the above
paths to point at your real PVR/Repository once you have identified a suitable device to target.
At a minimum I would recommend a 32GB USB2 stick. In addition please read the release posts for Versions 2 & 3.

Installation:

Remains as detailed in the original post of this thread except for STEP 3 which is revised as follows:-

3. Then use the following command in a terminal to place the extracted image on the unmounted stick:
(This takes up to 30 minutes if writing to a USB2 stick)

Code:
dd bs=4M if=/root/Downloads/tvpvrpupv4.img of=/dev/sdx status=progress && sync


If the stick is seen as sdb1 you would target the device /dev/sdb NOT the partition number sdb1.
Anything on it will be wiped.

Final thoughts:

1. The primary purpose of this Pup is to gather in media and to then save it to your repository/pvr.

2. The Video Player acts as a window on your repository/pvr enabling you to play it's contents within the Pup.

3. Chromecast abilities are included in Chromium itself (cast), the Video Player extension and YouTube.

4.The free WebRTC site/service "appear.in" is IMHO, way better than both Skype for Web and Talky.io
in that you can create and take ownership/control of a named room and it seems to work well
with a variety of webcams including those built into Chromebooks and netbooks.
It was tested with such devices using a Logitech HD C270 Web camera on my main box.

5. EDIT: A YouTube playlist comprising of 2 demo videos of TV/PVR Pup can be found here:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZCQnCAn3zqVdiqFQ0mcyjb5vJBmrWOHd

EDIT: 15th July 2017

If anyone finds that CBS News has ceased to function in their location please install the
optional service pack (tvpvrpupv4_SP1.pet). It contains scripts with alternate mrls and can
be found here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B_iVVJCd9q09WFI4OWlyS1luYmM?usp=sharing

Subject description: CapsLock, NumLock, ScrollLock tray indicator app.
 

Yet Another Optional pet - (lockstate-1_.0-x86_32_ETP.pet)

This is based on forum member SFR's superb utility detailed here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=110710

It is very handy when using a wireless keyboard that lacks indicator leds.
The pet only differs from the original in that it contains a pre-configured conf file
together with a simple autostart file.

Install the pet and then restart x to bring it into operation.

To toggle the states either use the relevant keyboard keys or left click the indicator icons themselves.
Right clicking the icons gives access to a variety of options.

PostPosted: Sun 13 Aug 2017, 05:13    Post subject: TV/PVR Xenial Pup V4 (32bit) - Released 5th July 2017  

Service Pack - (tvpvrpupV4_SP2)

This pack contains:

a) Some improvements to ensure that the mpv gui is always launched center screen.

b) An enhancement to the included startup-sound script. Currently that only triggers if an active
Internet connection has been confirmed. In effect the "Sound of silence" means that it has not!
The revised script reproduced below, provides a positive 10 second audible alert together with a
screen popup warning when the Internet test fails. The popup will remain on screen until dismissed.

Alarm clip sound.

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# This is /root/Startup/startup-sound  ETP May 2017 - (Based on an idea by forum member "peebee")
# Script modified to include a positive 10 seconds audible alarm plus on-screen message to warn of the absence of a Internet Connection. ETP 12th Aug 2017
# NOTES:
#
# 1. Change sleep period if need be, so that the end of the played sound clip coincides with desktop completion & network establishment.
# 2. Change player using suitable syntax. For example in the case of vlc that would be:-       player=cvlc --play-and-exit
# 3. Add further clips to the list to reference additional sound clips of your choice.
#
player=mpv
