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.

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/

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.
