Hello @Davids45

This might help. @Shinobar has 3 "portable" browsers that he has made available. From the sound of things, Full/Frugal, you "may" be better off mimic'ing his solutions.

The benefit: A portable can be "just clicked to run". Thus you'll merely have to, after you install it once, drag its icon to the desktop whenever you boot ANY other PUP OR you open its portable folder and click to run: the choices are to you.

Hope this is helpful.

Edit:- Answer me one question, if you will. Are you getting the 'ghost' entries in the Menu that I talked about? The 'FlashPeak Slimjet' entries, without an icon? By all rights, you shouldn't, since the cause of that was all stripped out of SlimJet's start-up wrapper-script before I packaged it.....but I would just like an answer, one way or the other. Feedback serves multiple purposes, you see..!

Hi Mike,

Sorry to get back to you so late. No, I had and have not seen the "ghost" entries in the Menu bar. Since, like you, I use quite a lot of different distros where Puppy is concerned, I'll give it a go on a few others too and see what happens. Hopefully no ghosts. You know, this darn Slimjet is weird....I'm not use to the browser opening so fast and/or responding to my clicks so fast. I gotta pay attention all the time, lol. Didn't realize how I'd gotten use to supertankers FF and Chrome over the years.........though to be fair to our Overlord Take-My-Life's-Info-Master Google-San, they still make their latest Chrome snap compared to FF. But Slimjet...well... is like, uhmmm, fun to use! Forgotten how speed and ease of use used to be a part of dealing with a browser. It reminds me of 8Geee's FF27 that he keeps alive, tight, and fast. Smile

Hi, Belham.

Ah, glad to hear that. The 'ghosts' are obviously just on my machine, then. I'll get around to chasing down the extraneous entries at some stage..!

You see, feedback is important. If you don't get these things right, it gives the impression that you couldn't care less about putting out a sloppy, half-finished product.....and this helps me to improve my technique.

Thanks for getting back to me. Cheers!

Hey All,

Just downloaded the latest Slimjet browser from the links in this thread.

So now I'll have to give it a try and see how good it works.

Thanks everyone who made this possible.

Afternoon, all.

I've decided to make a generic package for 32-bit SlimJet, since I run several 32-bit Pups myself, in addition to Tahr64 and Slacko64.

Unlike Oscar's packages, these follow my standard pattern, installing to /opt, rather than /usr/lib. I'm not attempting to steal Oscar's thunder here; if it wasn't for him, I would never have discovered this brilliant browser. I'm following the Puppy maxim of choice; these are constructed slightly differently to Oscar's, and are a 'generic' package, as opposed to Puppy-specific variants.

They can be found here:-

https://www.mediafire.com/folder/4bzwuu0d9t9uf/32-bit_generic

Just select the package you want. I usually prefer the SFS, but just sometimes I need to employ the .pet package, because I have too many SFS packages at /mnt/home that I don't wish to unload.....

I'll be keeping these updated, so.....do enjoy.


Mike. Wink

It's not working for me in tahrpup 6.0.2 but I'll see if I can get it working.

Note that I ran it as spot because it complained when I tried to run it as root.

I'll see what I can do to get it working.

**edit: I got it to work!!!!

I changed line 33 in /opt/slimjet/flashpeak-slimjet
from
Code:

exec -a "$0" /opt/slimjet/slimjet --user-data-dir=/root/.config/slimjet --disable-setuid-sandbox --disable-namespace-sandbox --disable-infobars "$@"

to
Code:

exec -a "$0" /opt/slimjet/slimjet --user-data-dir=/root/spot/.config/slimjet --disable-setuid-sandbox --disable-namespace-sandbox --disable-infobars "$@"


The problem was spot didn't have permission for /root/.config/

@s243a:-

Fair enough! Most folk don't tend to bother with spot, it's true.....but if you feel it affords you that extra layer of protection, go for it.

You do, of course, need to make sure that everything matches..... Smile

Glad you got it working. Nice one.

Thankyou Smile

In my opinion It's pretty simple to use spot if you have a suitable startup script. For instance I just created the following two scripts:

For non incognito
Code:

cd /usr/bin/
nohup su -c "flashpeak-slimjet" spot&

and for incognito
Code:

cd /usr/bin/
nohup su -c "flashpeak-slimjet --incognito" spot&


and dragged them to my desktop.

This works although it would probably be nicer if I edited:
/usr/share/applications/slimjet.desktop

and fixed the menu to give both an incognito and non incognito option. I'll think about making these modifications and repackages the sfs.

In my opinion since the internet is the most likely place where someone is to get a virus from it makes sense to run browsers as spot.

Besides the browser wasn't working for me as root anyway.

@s243a:-

Hi again.

If you want to make a /spot version, with the mods you've mentioned, go for it. No probs with that. You will find, with all the Chromium-based browsers, that they do have a tendency to 'whinge' when started from the terminal in Puppy, although they'll invariably run......99 times out of 100, anyway.

I got my inspiration from Oscar, who's been messing around with browsers far longer than I have. No reason why you can't do the same thing and re-package it as a 'Spot' version. If you'd like, get it it working and packaged, let me have a copy of it, and I'll host it on my MediaFire a/c, alongside my other SlimJet packages, with credit for it attributed to yourself. We may as well make it available, for those who want to use it!

Fair enough? How would you feel about keeping it updated, as I package the newer versions? And perhaps producing a .pet version? I can of course do them if you want, but you might like to make this your personal contribution. It's not hard to do when you know what you're doing.

I use trio's 'Pet-Maker' utility.....a very useful little app, though I do find it's easier to place the contents into the target directory manually, then use the utility to do the actual packaging. I've just got my system set up for the way I prefer to make my packages; it 'works' for me!

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=40457

It uses 'dir2pet' and 'mksquashfs' under the hood, although I find it's actually quicker to use the 'mksquashfs' script directly.....but it's an incredibly useful tool nonetheless. The GUI for editing the '.pet specs' is especially handy.

Let me know what you'd like to do, and if applicable, we'll make the necessary arrangements.


Mike. Wink

@cthisbear:-

Thanks! Glad you like it, Chris. Positive feedback is all useful stuff.....and, like I said, for me, it's all but replaced Chrome on the 32-bit Pups, since I can no longer keep it up-to-date.

For the 64-bit Pups, Chrome is still very much in use.....

BTW, if you find you like a certain version of SlimJet, and want to hang onto it (FlashPeak seem to do 3 or 4 releases based on any given release of Chromium.....mainly just adding 'bling' as Oscar very aptly put it..!), you can always keep Pepper up to date with my PepperFlash .pets, from here. There's a link to the re-released, up-to-date 32-bit Pepper.
