Hi, orrin.

Not an awful lot, TBH. If you're interested, this page'll explain what they've altered with the last few releases:-

Hope that helps.

Hi Mike,
I've been running the 32bit version 13.0.7.0 for a few days now. I just downloaded the deb from slimjet, extracted and resquashed it as an SFS. Loads and runs fine in LxPupSc, X-slacko 4.2 and X-slacko slim 4.2r41 on both the core 2 duo and the Pentium M laptops. The wrapper script in the 32b version is much improved since 13.0.3.0. If extra libraries are required (as in Xslim), place them in /opt/slimjet/lib and it picks them up, exports that lib path and uses them. Instead of symlinking your profile to ~/.config/slimjet, it requires if running from root that you export your profile location and explains that pretty clearly when running the wrapper. I used the following in /etc/profile:
Code:
# slimjet data directory location
export SLIMJET_USER_DATA_DIR=/mnt/sda2/BrowserData/slimjet
You could also create an /etc/profile.local of course.

Other than the standard puny toolbar/menu fonts that don't follow the system theme I've no complaints at all with it. Ya the cache is in the profile not ~/.config/.cache so my crond cleaner can't get at it and is encrypted but you can limit its size in the settings.

Hi, Marv.

Hmm. Interesting....

I'll have to have a look at this a bit more closely. I tend to junk the standard wrapper and use my own, which is a mixture of some of Oscar's stuff and my own.

Mine's around 36-38 lines in length.....where FlashPeak's isn't far short of 200 lines (although a big chunk of that is localization, it's true.) This business of the .cache being relocated might be worth re-investigation.

Cheers for the heads-up. Ta.


Mike. Wink

Using Slacko 64-6.3.2

A couple of extensions that I use do not work the same as in Chrome!

Vanilla Cookie Manager - The icon does not change from cookies to no-cookies (a cookie symbol with a line through it). The rest of the application seems to work OK.

Clear Cache - Does not reload the current tab after the cache is cleared! As far as I can tell, it is clearing the cache.

Would I be better off setting the max cache in the options to a low number like 1M and dumping the extension?

Can't it run in incognito? I think you don't need to release the cache if you run it that way.

Just about my sole complaint with the latest 32 bit slimjet was the toolbar and menu fonts. It's fixed for me installing the latest DejaVu fonts from here:http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=948195#948195 and of course running mkfont.sh in that directory. Thanks musher0! So far only tested in X-slacko Slim 4.2r42 and no font culling or tweaking done, just running DejaVu sans as the system font; but I think it solves the 'problem'. It's a simple thing to try if you have old or challenged eyes Confused

*** NEW Version 13.0.8.0 now available***

Evening, everybody.

The current release, 13.0.8.0, is now available for download. These can be found at the usual location in post #2. This includes the current version of Pepper, 25.0.0.127.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't usually bother with one release straight after another, given that Flashpeak pop these updates out so quickly.....but I decided to break with tradition this time, given that they've finally included several new audio codecs with this version. I thought y'all would appreciate having the choice!

New stuff in this release:-

https://www.slimjet.com/en/whatisnew.php

As Oscar also discovered, the website talks about downloading a specially-modified version of libffmpeg.so, despite there being a version of it in the /opt/slimjet directory already. It would appear that Oscar and I have both done the same thing; placed the modified version in the /opt/slimjet/lib folder, and also replaced the existing version with it. This way, SlimJet will find libffmpeg.so wherever it looks.

Have fun. Any probs, you know where to find me.


Mike. Wink
