Hiya, Geoff.

Out of curiosity, I'm just wondering. Is 'Smart Deblur' the Windows version, running under WINE.....or have you dug up a Linux version from somewhere?

I've been using it for a while myself; in my case, I'm running the 'PortableApps.com' version from a dedicated folder in /root, under WINE.

Haven't tried it on large images myself; I've used it a few times on various average-sized images. Seems to work quite well.....although the 'Smooth' blur parameter slider does seem to be super-sensitive, I have to admit.

Works for me.

Mike, it's the Linux version compiled with the source modified by WillM to remove the update popup, Ive used it with large images ok, it just takes a time to process them, it crashed only a couple of times for me, but all in all it work well.

I've managed to fix some old photos I took in the 70's that were not very clear, just have to play with the software to get use to it.

I have a Windows version of the same, I hex edited the executable to disable the update popup in it also, it works well too.

Mm. Interesting.

I wasn't aware there was a Linux version available. I have it working in an assortment of 10 Pups at the present, including 2 64-bit ones, and a couple of rg66's X-Series.....all running version2013's WINE 1.7.51.

Since I have the same assortment of PortableApps running in all Pups, the 'PortableApps' directory in /root is actually sym-linked from my remote data partition. Cuts down on duplication, of course.

I'll have a look at this. Does it have to be QT 4.8.1, or will it work with a later version.....like 4.8.5? I have 4.8.5 installed in most Pups for a couple of other things.

The update 'pop-up' bugs me, too! Laughing

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

EDIT:- Where did this originally come from, BTW? Looking on the home site, it's only for Windows/Mac.....and even the Linux version source code on gitHub is no longer available, I see.

Mike, it should work with most if not all Qt 4 versions.

The source code compiles in Linux without problem, there isn't a Linux specific version.

It's supposed to be working on mac now, so there is a chance that it would compile OTOB for linux. I never have QT around, so someone else will have to prove the point.


I proved the point. Wink

Thanks Bob, Dropbox link fixed.

Note the Getflash version 1.7 that's included will be broken due to url format change, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=956176#956176

Hugin, never heard about it until a Puppy user told on french forum how much he enjoys it with Linux Mint. He would like Puppy Linux provides it. Version 2016 found with synaptic on XenialDog
... But you make it available for thar. Nice.
Would it be possible to provide a pet only for Hugin, just for first trials ? Pleaaase.
demande de felixbd, experienced Hugin user with Linux Mint.

PostPosted: Mon 19 Jun 2017, 15:41    Post subject: Probably possible to build a Hugin SFS  

Hi Pelo,

After reading your post about Hugin, I wondered if it was possible to cobble one together for Tahrpup64. It was. I set up Puppy Package Manager to download (but not install) Hugin's files and dependencies to a folder I named "Hugin". Then used LazyPuppy's PaDS to combine the downloaded debs into an SFS.

I don't know whether Puppy Package Manager missed Hugin's dependency on several Qt libs, and one or maybe two others. When Hugin didn't run, I opened a terminal at /usr/bin and "ldd hugin", which reported missing (and present) libs. I then, again, used PPM to download those libs reported missing. But maybe I didn't have to.

My Tahrpup64 (and Xenialpup64) always have 32-bit compatibility libs loaded/installed. Consequently, there's a symlink in /usr/lib named x86_64-linux-gnu to /usr/lib. 64-bit Ubuntu applications are built to use an actual folder of that name as the location of 64-bit libs. Multi-arch Puppies aren't able to find that folder and, consequently, report libs placed there as missing. The work-around is to move the libs found there to /usr/lib. But I didn't remember that until after my second build via PaDS --including the libs I specifically downloaded-- again reported they were missing.

Once I realized this, I build a new SFS using the following method:

Created an empty folder named Hugin_2013 [the version of Hugin PPM found] in /mnt/home/temp.

Left-clicked the Hugin.sfs to "View" contents. Clicked rox's Eye to "Show hidden files". Then copied all files. [IIRC, they were all within a folder named "usr"] to /mnt/temp/temp/Hugin_2013. Left-Clicked/Unmounted Hugin.sfs and deleted it.

Browsed into Hugin_2013 with two windows; then moved all libs from /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu to /lib.

Opened a terminal at /mnt/home/temp and ran, code "dir2sfs Hugin_2013" --without the "". [Before doing that, browsed to /usr/share/applications and examined the desktop files in geany to make certain that their first category argument was a designation Puppies recognized].

The result was a functional Hugin SFS. [Remember during the build process to Unload non-functional SFS before testing new builds so that the former's libs aren't accidentally considered present].

X-Tahr 2.0 may require the installation of some libs found in Tahr, but not in X-Tahr.

mikesLr

P.S. Having just booted into Xenialpup64, I can report that the SFS I built under Tahrpup64 also works here. Opening it via terminal neither reports missing libs nor other flaws.

SFS 220MB downloading..
Caution Hugin is not easy to use. Felixbd is an expert compared to us.. Some tiny apps as fotoxx and tintii are wonderful, work for Puppy, and give such a nice result without having to study manuals.
Hugin is complete for use when using Synaptic in XenialDOG.
But not with the PPM Puppy.
What i really find boring is that the PPM lists dependancies missing, and does not download them. Why asking . Do it baby Twisted Evil
Dependancies are existing, available for download.

About the policy : to make panorama, you need first to take pictures for making panorama, unless any software fails to get an acceptable result.
Ligntness, colors, focale, zoom, take care of that when capturing your pictures. Panorama is not fish eye. There is no distorsion. But what a job !

mikeslr , i will read deeper your message. It is worth a perfect translation in my head. I have just 'flown' above, as a Concorde, fast Smile

Nice idea for Vincent van Pup, The Puppy for Artists. . Sure better than Libre Office and Lighter Twisted Evil Click the blue to jump to it.

Same adrive for it, nothing wrong.. Perhaps the X-tahr adrive will work
Wait and see..

Geoff, am I right in thinking this will only work with X-Tahr? What about Tahrpup itself? Or X-Slacko?

As for Krita, Mikeslr and myself both run it as an AppImage.....although it's only available as a 64-bit version. I don't know whether it might be possible to 'unpack' it somehow, then 're-compile' it...

Just a thought. I'm downloading the adrive now; gonna have a look at it. What d'you do; put it in /mnt/home, then load.....or does it just 'pick it up' on next boot?

EDIT:- Re; your advice about a clean boot. How about if I remove the save-folder, and boot with the adrv loaded to start with.....then shutdown without saving (but leave the adrv loaded), then add the save-folder back for the next boot; would that work?

Mike, I built it in X-Tahr from PPM Tahr packages and some that I compiled, so it needs the dependencies in X-Tahr to run most apps.

I also removed the duplicate files from the adrv that were already part of X-Tahr, so yes it's X-Tahr only, all the settings changes are for the XFCE layout.

I did have krita running in it also during tests, it was a pain to get the dependencies from what I remember and made the adrv too big, so gave it the flick.
I'm not sure if I still have those packages or a sfs of krita, I'm thinking it may have been a sfs I made to test, if I have it I'll post it for you.

Just place it in with the other X-Tahr files, it will load it at boot then loads the save if you have one

You can try it with your save, but I did intend it to boot with new settings, an old save may overwrite those, things like panel position, icon and theme settings.

Just give it a try it without the save first and see what you think.

Mike, I have a krita-2.8.1.sfs, it runs and seem to work but has heaps of can't find dbus errors and other stuff when run from the terminal.

I find it slow on the PC I'm using for running puppy, it's single core 2.4ghz sempron with 2gigs ddr2 333mhz ram, onboard Radeon X1200 graphics using 128meg of ram.

It will run without the adrv loaded, I will not be doing any work on the krita-2.8.1.sfs, it's as is, though it could be edited to remove unneeded components to make it smaller.

PostPosted: Wed 21 Jun 2017, 03:51    Post subject: Hugin for X-Tahr 2.0  

Congrats, Geoffrey, for your huge SFS containing Hugin and a lot of other softs I didn't know. I tried to download and to use the SFS with Puppy-Precise but it didn't work. So I downloaded X-Tahr 2.0 and everything was OK. I used Hugin a few times yesterday and it worked pretty well. Thanks for your work.
@ mikesir : I'm not an expert (!); I've been using Hugin for a few years very basically but with a lot of pleasure. However, Pelo is right about Hugin when he asks for a pet... if it's possible of course. (I'm not an expert in Linux either ; I just suppose it needs a lot of work).
Anyway, thanks to all the contributors.
