Is there any devx?

Yes - I have a devx which I've used to build a compatible version of ffmpeg (but got errors trying to compile MPlayer so had to "bodge" that)....

BUT leafpad for example is an Ubuntu Bionic app so I wouldn't be recompiling that...maybe the errors will "go away" as BB approaches release.....strange thing is everything seems to work (except Frisbee) despite the error messages.

shared-mime-info has changed in woof-ce, however I only see the problem red triangles for some old .isos which seem to have type model/stl.x-binary - but if you change the type to application/x-cd-image then they display and behave correctly. I can't see which bit of shared-mime-info-0.70-6.pet fixes this....


It's the same in slackware. Install the new version, but retain /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml from the old version.

Hello peebee,

I think most of the mime-types are defined in the .xml files in /usr/share/mime/packages with the bulk of the generic stuff being in freedesktop.org.xml

If you look at this in the new shared-mime-info and search for .iso or application/x-cd-image it looks more complicated than in the old package in which it is clearly defined as just one association. The .cat files could also be defined as well if they show as red triangles. ROX sees those as unknown "octet stream" files with the old package.

PostPosted: Mon 12 Mar 2018, 18:44    Post subject: Separate Thread for Bionic
Subject description: Given it has LTS from Ubuntu
 

G'day peebee,

Can I suggest, ASAP, that you start a new thread for your UPup Bionic?
I'm told, unlike Artful, Bionic will have long term support from Ubuntu, so BionicPup is also likely to be a long term investment.

I've downloaded your first Bionic delta and will report when I've had a play.
Posting from the un-deltaed Bionic now, which is pretty good. This was after fixing a few things during installing my many extra applications (pets and/or sfs) - the pinboard opens up before everything I added is ready, so I have to reset the pinboard to get all my app icons (and pwidgets) correctly displayed. Happens to me in Artful and radky's Stretch too, so it's a woof-thing I believe (and my over indulgence in extra applications on the pinboard Embarassed ).

Hoping you can fix the drive icons display for the situation where there are many drive partitions (Artful is good, Bionic is bad - another woof issue?).

Thanks again for your efforts which I greatly appreciate Smile .

Hi peebee.

Congratulations for the new baby!!! Very Happy

About those warnings, some Ubuntu people feel that leaving the "debug" function
on is a kind of Ubuntu trademark, and if the user will run the apps in GUI mode,
the warnings will not be a bother. I have read that in a couple of threads on their
forums. That argument is specious, if I may say so.

I believe all of the recent UPups have the annoyance, including my
xenialPup-7.0.6.

An edit at line 160 of Puppy's /usr/bin/xwin solves it:
Code:
#-----------------------------------------------------------------------
/usr/bin/xinit /root/.xinitrc -- -br -nolisten tcp > /tmp/xerrs.log 2>/dev/null
# BarryK's original ending: 2>&1 #### Edit by musher0, Oct. 23, 2017
# 2>/dev/null will send the error reports to never-never land, and you will have an
# almost clean xerrs.log. If you notice something fishy going on on your system,
# do not hesitate to restore BarryK's original ending.
#-----------------------------------------------------------------------

If one runs apps from console a lot, the following can come in handy.
Code:
#!/bin/bash
# filtre-2dn.sh ## et liens symboliques / and symbolic links
# < filtre > et/ and < fltr >
# dans / in
# /opt/local/bin/
# OU / OR
# /root/my-applications/bin. ##

There are comments in both of the above, please read them.

About the latter "filter" script, people do with it as you see fit. It certainly needs
improvements when using multiple positional parameters.<

If one would wish to use one of the short forms, e.g. < filtre leafpad > or
< fltr leafpad > instead of < filtre-2dn.sh leafpad >, please create appropriate
symbolic links through rox or console. Please do not forget to make script
< filtre-2dn.sh > executable.

IHTH.

re. supra: Sort of works on a very old Rad VE 32M card but crosshatch distortions evident on icons and mouse pointer. OK so far on most Gf/nV cards.

Hello peebee,
I just tried your bionic puppy on my acer Aspire V5, with the french langpack, at first glance everything works perfectly. It's great work, thank you very much. If you accept, it will serve me probably basis for my next Triton. Wink .
Bien à toi, petihar.

...but not an old TNT card. Have now tested more than a dozen graphics cards and the results are highly variable, often not able to arrive at a prompt when using pfix=nox. Cannot pin down the cause on 32bit machines.

Please wait until Bionic Beaver is released by Ubuntu on 26th April followed by Upup-BB sometime later.....currently Alpha!!

Running +2 as my daily with no major issues. I still don't have direct rendering on the i915 hardware. The crda error messages in dmesg have stayed gone since I added the wireless-regdb and set the wireless reg domain. Could someone with non intel video and possible a non ath9k wireless card run the following in terminal and see what the results are: "glxgears" and "dmesg | grep crda" ? Thanks. Also hoping Ubuntu sorts the GLib-GObject-CRITICAL issues by release.

PostPosted: Tue 13 Mar 2018, 19:25    Post subject: Drive icons poor display - a fix
Subject description: With more than one hard-drive and many partitions
 

G'day,

I have been able to find a fix for the inability of Upup Bionic to re-display my drive icons so both a and b drives are aligned across the screen bottom, not overlapping, and without their labels (check an earlier post of mine in this thread for the issue).

The problem seems to be an incomplete(?) version of eventmanager in /usr/sbin.

Copying the bigger version of eventmanager in XenialPup-7.5 to BionicPup alpha, after deleting the smaller problem file in /usr/sbin, I can now re-position my 28-odd drive icons from the default overflowing/overlapping columns and other unsatisfactory arrangements offered by the Bionic-supplied eventmanager to well-spaced and label-free rows.

Another ongoing irritation I've had with recent Pups (not just BionicPup which is only alpha after all) is clutter with irrelevant 'places' for opening files in the 'Open file' window.
To fix this, I deleted all the lines in /etc/fstab. This then does de-clutter the 'Open file' dialog window, however I don't know if this has any effect elsewhere.
So far, so good in quite a few now un-cluttered Pups.

Hoping this ad-hoc-ery may help someone else,

David S.
