Optional pet plus OB setting:

If using the alternate black leather effect wallpaper mentioned in the
previous post you may also wish to run vlc without windows decorations or borders.
In retrospect when running in a window as opposed to full-screen, it is pretty ugly
having the stream name accross the top of the window.

To get that effect:

1. Access the "Desktop Appearance" menu from the launcher on
the left hand side of the screen and then select Openbox theme followed by "Appearance".
Untick the first item - "Windows retain a border when undecorated".

2. Install the attached pet which contains a revised OB rc.xml file.

3. Reboot ensuring that you save the session.

Full sized example screen-shot here: (Press F11 to toggle into full screen then click on link)

https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=0B_iVVJCd9q09Wjc5V2hVOW5XMFE

Alt+F4 / Ctrl+q / right click menu/ - Can all still be used to close an undecorated vlc window.

PostPosted: Sun 20 Nov 2016, 09:56    Post subject: TV/PVR Xenial Pup V2 (32bit) - Released 20th November 2016  

Version 2 of TV/PVR Xenial Pup (32-bit) tvpvrpupv2.img.xz (439MB) & md5sum can be found here:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B_iVVJCd9q09VlQxODZQRnFiQ1E?usp=sharing

Main changes:

1. The two TV news icons on wbar now launch the channel in non-decorated windowed mode as opposed to full-screen.
The icons on the TV panel continue to launch in full-screen mode.
In both cases the keyboard letter "F" can be used to toggle between the two states.

2. All previously optional pets have now been incorporated.

3. Thunderbird updated to version 45.4.0

4. Minor tweaks to scripts plus various cosmetic improvements including changes to file type colours in Rox.

5. To permanently engage the on-screen display of IP address(s) move the conkyipstart script from the /root/ex_startup folder to the /root/Startup folder then restart X.
If you only require a temporary display leave the script in ex_startup and just left click it to execute. The IP display should appear after 12 seconds.

6. Additional programs utility in Kodi to perform housekeeping on cache, thumbnails & old packages.

Installation:
Remains as detailed in the original post. STEP 3 is revised as follows:-

3. Then use the following command in a terminal to place the extracted image on the unmounted stick:
(This may take up to 40 minutes with just a flashing cursor as feedback until it finishes)

Code:
Code:
dd bs=4M if=/root/Downloads/tvpvrpupv2.img of=/dev/sdx && sync


If the stick is seen as sdb1 you would target the device /dev/sdb NOT the partition number sdb1.
Anything on it will be wiped.

Subject description: A modern look and feel for 2017.
 

.
VERSION 3: - (tvpvrpupv3.img.xz (588MB) & md5sum can be found here:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B_iVVJCd9q09SFgwZnFhSHQtRVE?usp=sharing

As with the original V1 this Pup has the ability to record anything playing in Kodi or CBSN.
Anything playing in YouTube may also be downloaded using the "Complete YouTube Saver" add-on within Pale Moon.

BBC national channels may also be viewed and recorded via the TV panel.
BBC regional radio and TV channels may be viewed and recorded within Kodi.

Please see the original post in this thread for more details.

Main changes in V3:

1. All previously optional pets have now been incorporated.

2. Chromium browser added plus apps for casting anything that has been recorded to smart TVs & Chromecast dongles.

3. A new ultra modern look and feel using the Chromium "Infinity" extension.

Installation:

Remains as detailed in the original post except for STEP 3 which is revised as follows:-

    3. Then use the following command in a terminal to place the extracted image on the unmounted stick:
    (This takes approx 20 minutes if writing to a USB2 stick)

    Code:
    dd bs=4M if=/root/Downloads/tvpvrpupv3.img of=/dev/sdx status=progress && sync

    If the stick is seen as sdb1 you would target the device /dev/sdb NOT the partition number sdb1.
    Anything on it will be wiped.

Final Thoughts:

Thanks go to 666philb for the base Pup used here and to radky for his FbBox-4.0 plus custom theme.
With best wishes to all forum members for 2017.

Subject description: fail to install
 

Happy New Year
ETP thanks for the release I thought it would be just the job to keep my wife happy watching iplayer when in France. However when I try to install it to hard drive something is wrong in that vmlinuz, initrd, puppy_xenial sfs and zdrv_xenial sfs file were not in the install partition and hence Grub4dos didnot put an entry in the boot menu.
I booted again from the usb and manualy copied the files from the usb into the partition ran grub4dos and it then put an entry in to the boot menu,
But when I boot it just boots into the xenialpup and not your highly moded version. Any ideas?
Apart from that it seems to work, I am running on a lenovo T400

Hi simsha,

Welcome to the forum and thanks for your query. The T400 although it does have a fast hard disc (7200-rpm) does
not have an i3 or i5 CPU plus fast enough graphics to handle HD streamed video (720p/1080p). I gather that it has
an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.53GHz T9400 processor with 2GB of RAM and a 256MB ATI Radeon Mobility HD 3400 GPU.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/161074/lenovo_thinkpad_t400.html

You are also likely to struggle with reception of even SD iplayer quality in France if you do not possess a UK VPN
that gives a minimum bandwith of 5Mbps. (A minimum of 10Mbps is needed for BBC HD)

In the original post in this thread I wrote:

Quote:
Subsequent transfer from a working stick to a HDD or SSD is possible if required.
If that is done you may then boot from the original stick or by means of a new entry in any existing boot loader configuration file.


To clarify and expand on that; manually doing so is only worth it if you favour faster startup, quick saves and prompt shutdowns.
It in no way improves running speed as this Pup runs entirely in RAM once booted.

If you are still inclined to transfer it to the HD from the working stick, a fully commented syslinux.cfg together with boot code examples
can be found in the /boot/syslinux directory on the first partition of the stick.

In order to then boot from the stick the syslinux syntax on the stick (for a boot from the hard disc) would be:

Code:
default /vmlinuz initrd=/initrd.gz pmedia=atahd pupsfs=sda6:/puppy_xenial_7.0.4.sfs pdev1=sda6


(Change the two references to sda6 to point at the actual partition that you use. f2fs format is recommended for speed but grub4dos
does not recognise it.)

For the sake of completeness here is my own entry in my existing vesamenu syslinux.cfg (sdb7 is a 10GB f2fs SSD partition)

Code:
MENU SEPARATOR

LABEL TVPVR
MENU LABEL TV/PVR Pup V3  sdb7  22/12/16
KERNEL /tvpvrpup/vmlinuz
APPEND initrd=/tvpvrpup/initrd.gz pmedia=ataflash pupsfs=sdb7:/puppy_xenial_7.0.4.sfs pdev1=sdb7

Subject description: Fix for PPM issue.
 

Since V1 of this Pup was issued on 27th Oct only one issue has emerged in that PPM sometimes fails to launch with the bogus message that it is "already running".

Forum member mavrothal issued a pet to fix this issue in this post: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=931776#931776

A copy of that pet is attached and should be installed if you encounter this issue.

PostPosted: Wed 08 Feb 2017, 04:24    Post subject: TV/PVR Xenial Pup V3 (32bit) - Released 22nd December 2016
Subject description: Chromium
 

A new 32-bit Chromium pet (chromium_56.0.2924.76_i486+pepper_24.0.0.194-etp) is now available
for this Pup via the following direct download link:

https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0B_iVVJCd9q09dXNfVHVUVlZlYVk

To upgrade:

1. Download the pet.

2. Use PPM to uninstall the existing Chromium pet.

3. Install the new pet, test and then if happy, click on the desktop save icon.

The new pet is based on Alien Bob's build and includes the final 32-bit Chrome widevine modules.
Netflix will hopefully work if anyone has an account to test that aspect.

Running as root with adequate sandboxing is continued using Iguleder's trick as brought to light by 01micko.

Edit: 11th Feb 2017

I feel that I must clarify the phrase "adequate sandboxing". It should really read "the appearance of adequate sandboxing!"
Iguleder's trick is just that, a trick. Chromium asks the question "Am I running as root?". It is falsely told NO so
assumes that you are a normal user and implements sandboxing. That sandboxing is however around root in effect negating
all sandboxing. Anyone breaching your system via the browser would have root access with all that implies.

Please therefore do not regard this method as safe for Internet banking. It is just a means of continuing to run Chromium
as root when using Puppy. It is not as safe as running as Spot.
