@Mike. I used the Chrome for Slacko64 SFS. And have hit a problem. The "material design" component is missing on the browser. Was this feature deleted in the implementation?

Just a note: On @PeeBee's version it remains. So there must be something done different.

That component is general seen as the "pancake stack" or "hamburger" or "3 vertical dots" which resides in the upper right side of the browser screen.

I am running the latest Slacko64-V7a3. Is the component present on your browser in your distro?

Hi, gc.

You've lost me, mate. I haven't a clue what you mean by the 'material design'.

If you're talking about the three dots that have replaced the 'hamburger', yes they are indeed present. I'm posting from the new, current Chrome right now. But I'm using Slacko64 6.3.0, based on Slackware 14.1.....not 14.2. Not yet. I don't tend to jump into alpha & beta releases feet-first!

I much prefer to wait until they're at 'release candidate' stage, at the very least... I don't think the new Slacko64 will be there for a while yet. Smile

The current Chrome SFS packages were built in Tahr64, and Slacko64-s14.1. So it's quite possible there will be 'hiccups', as Slackware transitions to the new variant. I'm running 14 Pups as it is. I don't intend adding any more for some time to come, I'm afraid.....and I never like building packages for any of my Pups until I'm absolutely happy with them.

Evening, all.

Following orrin's discovery that loading the SFS breaks CUPS (which it does!), I've re-worked the packages (putting the permissions right). 'Twas my fault, I'm afraid; quite simply, I forgot to correct them this time around.

It's a well-known problem when converting .deb components into Puppy packages..!

Hello,

I discovered that when the Chrome sfs is loaded, Cups will not work.
When I unload the sfs, CUPS works fine.

Is there a way to make them co-exist so that I can print from a web page in Slacko 64-6.3.2?


Hi again, orrin.

A-hem. (*Cough, cough...*) Embarassed That shouldn't have happened. It was my fault.

I create the SFS packages using components from the .deb download from the Chrome website. The snag is (and it's a well-known one in 'Puppy-land') that .deb packages are set-up for Debian and Ubuntu (in fact, any Debian-based distro, as well). They're primarily multi-user systems.....unlike Puppy, which is essentially single-user, and that's why it runs as root.

Accordingly, the permissions are totally different to what Puppy runs with.....and when you forget to change them, invariably CUPS throws a wobbly. It's one of the first things affected by incorrectly-set Chrome packages, I'm afraid.

One of the folder entries in Chrome is the /etc directory. When it installs /etc/cron/google-chrome (the Chrome updater, which doesn't work under Linux in any case), it changes permissions on /etc. So /etc/CUPS isn't seeing what it expects to.....and misbehaves. Strangely, CUPS is the only thing that really seems to be affected by it..!

I tried it out myself, in Tahr64. I don't print often, so had no reason to check it. I, too, got the 'Internal Server Error' stuff you get when CUPS goes on the fritz.....so I knew straightaway what I'd forgotten to do..! Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

If you download the new package I've just uploaded (with permissions fixed, now), you'll find everything's working as it should.

Thanks Mike,

CUPS in the new version is no longer broken!

It works a bit strange though with my Canon MP990, when I try to print from
the Chrome print dialog, the printer comes on and does nothing! When I
check the job in CUPS, it is listed as failed. But if I click on reprint from Cups,
it prints OK. Strange..!! ... but that's off-topic for this thread!

Good, good; glad to hear it. I made sure it was all working in both my 64-bit Pups, so I knew it should have been OK for upload.

Re: CUPS in Slacko64. At least yours sounds as though it does work! I haven't, as yet, been able to get my Epson working at all in Slacko64.....yet it works beautifully in every other Pup I run.

How's that for inexplicable?

(*shakes head in exasperation*)

I have very old Epson dot matrix that I finally got working in Slacko64...
First I had to add some code to /etc/rc.d/rc.local to get the parallel port
turned on. Then I found a ppd file for the LQ570 series on the net and
now it works just fine!

Hi, Orrin.

Nah, there's very little change, TBH. One or two bits of sandbox code have been modified, and that's about it, really. I'm just trying to keep up with each release for anybody who may want them.....some folks are obsessive about always having the newest, most up-to-date version. 54 is out on the Beta channel, the Dev Channel is currently hosting 55, and I believe 56 is already being 'sketched-out' in the wings..!

'xx.-.----.---' is the major version, '--.-.xxxx.---' is the point release, and '--.-.----.xxx' is usually minor revisions to the point release.

'Newest ain't always the best.....'

Yours'll be fine for a while yet; just keep Pepper up to date, and you'll be laughing. The last version but one was out for around 6 weeks. This last couple, Google have released two updates in a matter of days; that's just how it goes, sometimes. Probably summat to do wi' the 'bug bounty' programme they constantly have running, which encourages users to email in with problems, in exchange for a reward.....

Go figure..! Rolling Eyes

My 32-bitters are quite happy with the final release Google did before dropping 32-bit support; 48.0.2564.116. Still plays NetFlix, so I'm happy, too!

Hello Mike,

Thanks for the update! I will keep what I have.
As a suggestion, when you announce a new version, you might ad a line or two about what has changed!

Hi, orrin.

Yah, I guess I should, really. OscarTalks' always does with his SlimJet packages.....but the changelog for SlimJet is easier to find than the Chrome one!

I'll have a go at tracking it down...just for you, like! Laughing
