Subject description: CapsLock, NumLock, ScrollLock tray indicator app.
 

Optional pet - (lockstate-1_.5-x86_64_ETP.pet)

This is based on forum member SFR's superb utility detailed here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=110710

It is very handy when using a wireless keyboard that lacks indicator leds.
The pet only differs from the original 64-bit pet in that it contains a pre-configured conf file
together with a simple autostart file.

Install the pet and then restart X to bring it into operation.

To toggle the states either use the relevant keyboard keys or left click the indicator icons themselves.
Right clicking the icons gives access to a variety of options.

Subject description: Google Chrome
 

Google Chrome Stable 61.0.3163.91 was released on 14th September 2017.

It requires some newer libraries that are not currently present in this Pup which is
based on BarryK’s Quirky Xerus64 8.0 that was released in April 2016.

In order to upgrade to the latest version of Chrome please proceed as follows:

1. Download the latest GetLatest64bitChromeVersionWoofQ-MK2.5.pet from here:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B_iVVJCd9q09b080OXE3SDFKeVk?usp=sharing

2. Use QPM to uninstall your current version of "google-chrome-stable_current_amd64"

3. Use QPM to uninstall the original GetLatest64bitChromeVersionWoofQ-MK1.pet

4. Install the downloaded MK2.5 pet and then use the "Get Latest Chrome Version" Internet menu item to upgrade.

Notes:
The MK2.5 pet is only suitable for use with DLNA Quirky Xerus64 Pups V1 & V2

Hi step,

The first requirement is that you have created a working stick that is happy to
boot on the PC in question and is performing as expected.

Transfer to a HD/SSD on that PC is very simple.

The first task is to create an 10GB f2fs dedicated partition somewhere on the disk using gParted.
You can use this Pup running off the stick to do that.

Having done that shut down the Pup and boot into another f2fs aware Pup. (Any recent Pup should do)

Use that Pup to copy over the complete contents of the 3rd partition on the DLNA stick to the new partition on the HD/SSD.
Note that in this instance it is a full install rather than a frugal install.

Your next port of call is to syslinux.cfg which is held in the /boot/syslinux/ directory on the 1st partition of the DLNA stick.
Note that there is only one active line in syslinux.cfg (the last one) and that the rest of the file gives worked examples of
how to modify that code so that the stick can be used to boot then load either a full or frugal install that has been copied
over to a hard disc partition.

The simplest thing to do is to comment out the single existing active line and to create a new one below. That enables you in future
to exchange the comments to boot from the contents of the HD partition or the original stick.

Another advantage of this approach i.e. continuing to use the stick so that the bootloader ldlinux.sys loads the kernel (vmlinuz),
is that no modifications are needed to any existing bootloader and menu that you currently use for anything else on the HD.

To run your DLNA server you only need to insert the stick then power on. Power on without the stick inserted & your normal menu
system will appear.

Once you have the above method working there is another option which does require editing your existing boot method.
If you wish to do that you will need to also copy vmlinuz from the first partition on the stick to a place on the
hard disc where your bootloader can find it and create a new menu item that points at it together with the new partition.
Note that not all boot-loaders recognise f2fs but you can use another format if that is the case and do not mind a slight speed penalty.

Thank you for your detailed answer, ETP. I will report back if it doesn't work for me.

PostPosted: Wed 14 Mar 2018, 08:34    Post subject: DLNA Quirky Xerus64 Pup V2 - released 3rd July 2017  

Optional but recommended pet - Firefox64_Quantum_Portable-etp.pet (v 59.0 64-bit)

This is based on forum members fredx181 & OscarTalks work detailed here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=978010#978010

The pet can be found here:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B_iVVJCd9q09b080OXE3SDFKeVk?usp=sharing

An additional theme plus the ad blocker "uBlock Origin" extension are included in the pet.

For the time being please retain Waterfox as it also contains the vital "Complete YouTube Saver v 5.7.36" add-on,
the new version of which, intended for Quantum and other browsers, having not yet been released.

A revised wbar layout containing both icons will be included in the following service pack when issued.

Service Pack: (dlnaxerus64v2_SP2.pet)

This will be issued in a few days time after final testing. It deals with (i.e. cancels) the new
annoying warning popup messages introduced by Google Chrome version 65.0.3325.146 when running as root
with the --no-sandbox flag as is the case with this Pup.

.
Service Pack: dlnaxerus64v2_SP2.pet

The release of Google Chrome version 65.0.3325.146 on 6th March introduced additional on-screen warning
messages for those of us running it as root with the --no-sandbox flag as is the case with this Pup.

They swiftly become annoying and a service pack is attached which is intended to cancel most of them.
It may be installed before or after upgrading to 65.0.3325.146

In particular this SP2 pack:

1. Removes the (Tux) BBC weather item icon from wbar.

2. Points the wbar (Video repository) Pool icon at it's own new dedicated Chrome wrapper script.

3. Revises the main wrapper script for launching Chrome.

4. Adds a Firefox icon next to the Waterfox icon on wbar.

For a more complete cancellation job you may wish as I have, to delete a couple of launchers on page-1 of Chrome newtab
and then create there new custom icons for appear.in (Free group video chat - webrtc) and (BBC) Weather.

You may also opt to leave page-1 as it is and create them instead on page-4 where there is plenty of room for more.
In any event the desktop appear.in wrtc icon should be right clicked, unlocked and then removed.

Newtab BBC - Icon:

The url for BBC Weather is in the format https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/xxxxxxx where xxxxxxx is your location code.

Example: Perth, Australia https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/0/2063523

A search on https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/ will give you the code for your location.

Another example: Cape Town, South Africa https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/0/3369157

Newtab Appear.in - Icon:

The initial url if you have not already created your own room is https://appear.in
If you have created your own room and wish to go straight there the format is https://appear.in/NAME-OF-ROOM

Example: https://appear.in/handle-puppy-linux

Please note that in newtab you cannot currently edit icons other than by deletion then re-creation,
To delete an icon right click with the mouse over any icon. All of the icons will then start to tremble with fear as
they will each then display a delete symbol. Left click the X symbol on any icon that you wish to delete.
Left or right click on an area away from any icons to quell the general panic.

The icons themselves for the custom newtab launchers ( brit128.png & appear128.png )can be found in /root/noob/
