@ april.

Call me old fashioned, but I do not actually possess a smartphone.
The menu entry "Applications/Filesystem/Connect Your Android Phone" may be what
you seek. It points at a script /usr/sbin/mtpdevice

There is a link to the devx in the reply to pp4mnklinux on the previous page.

Hi april,

I have seen your edit to your last but one post and you seem to have created a working alternative to
the non-working Android script included by the current WoofCE. Very well done. Smile

I will take a look at that script to see whether I can fathom out what the issue is.
Have you yet had the chance to disable the Chrome silent_launch script as I suggested
on the previous page and if so with what results?

Hi april,

I have now had a look at the script /usr/sbin/mtpdevice and concentrated first on getting notify-send working.
That requires additional items installing via PPM : (These only total a few MB)

    libwnck-3-0_3.14.1-2|Window Navigator Construction Kit - runtime files
    libwnck-3-common_3.14.1-2|Window Navigator Construction Kit - common files
    notify-osd_0.9.35+16.04.20160415|daemon that displays passive pop-up notifications
    libnotify-bin_0.7.6-2svn1|sends desktop notifications to a notification daemon Utilities

So ....... notify-osd plus its deps & libnotify-bin

(I have uploaded a couple of screenshots to a new "mtp Screenshot" folder" )

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B_iVVJCd9q09YmNRbVJCcVJkSXM?usp=sharing

Then launching from the menu item "Connect Your Android Phone", a message popped up "go-mtpfs is not installed"
That is generated by line 46 of the script which is a dependency check just prior to launching the GUI.

That plus it's deps totals 189 MB which brought me to a halt as even if I was happy to install that quantity
I could not test any further without an Android Phone.

This post therefore is a starting point for anyone who is motivated enough to press on.

It may be that simple e-mails or Google-Drive would suit some people for exchanging info between
PC & Smartphone depending on the quantity to be exchanged and whether the connection is metered or not.

hi ETP,

xenialpup has 01mickos mtp_phone_connect if you haven't removed it
menu>>filesystem>>connect your android phone
it should popup a dialog when an MTP device is connected

works here with various android devices

Hi 666philb & april,

@ 666philb,

Thanks for your post; it is good to see you back in the saddle.
Firstly we are all discussing the same thing here, 01mickos mtp_phone_connect package and in particular
the mtpdevice script called by the menu entry/desktop file.

In the case of Brexit Pup however, we are seeing totally different outcomes with that script generating
notify-send errors unless additional packages are installed as above followed by line 46 calling for
"go-mtpfs" to be installed. For you it is working.

Fully awake this morning I have a theory as to why that is the case.

Brexit uses f2fs and I speculate that it is not recognised by the mtp package which sees it and assumes that
it is some sort of mtp store which it needs the go-mtpfs stuff to make sense of.
The missing Notify-osd plus its deps & libnotify-bin do however seem to be needed for totally correct operation of the package.

@ april,

In order to test the above theory could you please download & test with 666philb's Xenialpup64 7.0.8.6 ISO : beta (issued 26/10/2017)
which contains the identical files.

If 7.0.8.6 works with your Android Phone you then have the option of sticking with that or if you wish to continue
with Brexit I will detail how to switch over to ext2 or non-journaled ext4 on the 3rd partition of the stick.

Subject description: Revised Get Latest 64-bit Google Chrome Pet
 

A new improved pet is attached. Some redundant code has been removed and the wrapper
script simplified to give a slightly faster boot.

1. Use PPM to uninstall your existing pet.

2. Install then use the attached revised pet. ( GetLatest64bitChromeVersion-MK11 ) to upgrade to version 62.0.3202.75 issued on 26th October.

The MK11 pet is suitable for recent 64-bit Ubuntu (WoofCE) based Pups such as Brexit.
It should also work with BarryK's (WoofQ) based Quirky Xerus64 8.3 and Easy Linux 0.6

Having booted and watched this Pups performance probably 40 odd times now , I am of the opinion that it runs quite satisfactorily on lesser processors.

The problem is the browser -both of them

Someone has introduced a spyware program in there that just stalls the loading until it has finished uploading ,presumably, all of your data that they want.

Not good . I would suggest you uninstall both and use Seamonkey -Just as good and safer and smaller.

Hi april,

I can assure you that the slowness of both browsers (Pale Moon & Google Chrome) has nothing to do with "spyware".
Spyware by it's very nature does nothing to draw attention to itself. It just quietly harvests your data.

Both browsers are modern and all of them tend to a greater or lesser degree, to collect statistical data which is
subsequently uploaded without impacting upon performance.

Chrome is a direct download from --- https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
Pale Moon was part of the WoofCE build.

It would appear that either your hardware or internet connection is not up to the task of running those browsers.

You will hopefully see that from the quick unlisted YouTube video which I made today.
( Once the video appears double left click it to go full-screen. )

Well now that's not how I see it .
They can summarise the data on your machine in the background but ...It has to get uploaded somehow and most upload speeds are a lot slower than downloads . So the program sits there waiting as its sending and if it can't "interupt" out then it will slow everything . That's what it looks like here.
I could be wrong ...I often am.

Hi april,

I think that we are going to have to agree to differ on the "spyware" topic.

For the benefit of anyone following this thread I would stress again that Brexit IMHO, really requires a minimum of an i3 CPU or the AMD equivalent.

If using it on lesser spec kit as is @april, I have already made 2 suggestions to improve matters but since my last post have now also tested
a Brexit USB2 stick with a lower spec Samsung NC110 netbook from 2011:

10.1 in 1,024x600 display, 1.2kg, 1.5GHz Intel Atom N550 (dual core with hyper threading so appears to the OS as a quad core), 2.00GB RAM, 250GB disk.

That was obviously slower than my mid range i5 but acceptable until I hit web pages full of graphical adverts when it slowed to a crawl.
In general low spec CPUs go hand in glove with poor graphics rendering abilities.

On page 2 of new tab in Chrome there is a link to speedtest.net
That is a classic example of such a site as it downloads about 14 intensive graphic adverts which it then rotates in groups of 4 or 5.
Even on my i5 that takes a few seconds before it settles down so that you can perform a realistic broadband speed test.
It is likely that the site relies entirely on advert click revenue for it's existence.

On the Samsung in Chrome that took about 2 minutes to settle !!!!!!!!

The solution in Chrome was to install the AdBlock 3.20.0 extension just using it's default settings.

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adblock/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog

It is very easy to carry out a before and after test and other sites such as YouTube clearly benefited.

Brexit Pup Stage 2 - Released 15th January 2018

Main Changes:

1. Now based on 666philb's official Xenial Pup64 CE 7.5 that was released on 25th Nov 2017 but uses instead the later Linux 4.14.2 kernel.
Currently, this PUP contains 666philb's bugfixes up to and including 31/12/17 which include the Android “mtp phone connect” fix.
The "Quickpet xenial" menu item is operational for any of 666philb’s future updates and bugfixes to the base Pup.

2. Additional wallpapers plus 3 brief test videos accessible via the red CYTS icon on wbar at the top of the screen.
That icon launches the Chrome app "Video Player" which targets the folder /mnt/home/Complete YouTube Saver
That same folder is also set as the default location for videos saved using the "Complete YouTube Saver" add-on within Pale Moon.

Additional local or accessible network locations may be added to the Chrome app "Video Player" which will then aggregate and
display the complete contents for selection to play locally. Please do NOT use the cast icon within "Video Player" as clicking it
will trash the App and as from January 2018 Google apps can no longer be updated or re-installed.
If using a Chromecast use the cast icon within Chrome itself.

3. More prominence given to the included Chrome vGET Cast App's ability to cast local videos to Smart TVs with a new dedicated TV icon on wbar.

4. The following updated Internet services are built-in - (Each can be updated over this PUP’s lifetime):

a. Google Chrome Stable version 63.0.3239.132 (With parallel downloading enabled)
b. Thunderbird 52.5.2
c. Pale Moon 27.6.2
d. Flash 28.0.0.137
e. Ad Blockers are pre-installed for both Pale Moon & Chrome.

5. Some fixes plus more conservative timing settings are included.

6. Window Manager is still FbBox-5.0.

7. Supports UEFI PCs in CSM mode & has support for older Bioses that may not normally boot from a USB stick.

Where to obtain the image:

brexitpupstage2.img.xz (773MB) --- plus md5sum & a copy of the startup-sound script.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1c4e_wcOmKrpccChTduGgA2WEyBqjVxiT?usp=sharing

Installation:

Having first checked that the true capacity of the stick is adequate as described in the original post of this thread,
commence by returning the stick to its "as new" state before targeting it with the image.

In Linux use GParted to do that:

1. Click on “device” then select “Create Partition Table” (MSDOS)

2. Then create a single fat32 partition spanning the whole stick accepting all other defaults.

3. Do not set any flags or change anything else.

4. Extract the xz compressed image with UExtract first making sure that you have enough free space
on a Linux volume as it will expand to 8 GB.

The UExtract pet can be found here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=87864

5. Then use the following command in a terminal to place the extracted image on the unmounted stick:
Warnings: This may take up to 35 minutes & everything on the stick will be wiped.

Code:
dd bs=4M if=/root/Downloads/brexitpupstage2.img of=/dev/sdx status=progress && sync


Note - Important instruction: If the stick is seen by your PC as sdb1, you must target the device as of=/dev/sdb...NOT of=/dev/sdb1 In other words,
DROP the number 1 for your stick. Use only its 3 characters "sdb" as in the following example.

EXAMPLE using the above mentioned sdb1, your command should look like this:
Code:
dd bs=4M if=/root/Downloads/brexitpupstage2.img of=/dev/sdb status=progress && sync


Final Thoughts:

Please study the copy of the revised startup-sound script in the downloads folder which also contains & describes the
options for booting up directly to a live networked TV stream. OOTB it is set to boot into the CBSN live news stream on the first
reboot following completion of "First-Run" & your network setup.
Important Note: When the desktop displays just WAIT for the startup sound followed by the stream launch.
Both TV options may be commented out to suppress the automatic launch if you so wish. (LINES 27 & 29)

This Pup should in particular suit anyone who owns a Chromecast dongle or Smart TV and does not wish to run a DLNA server for their media.

Built-in SAMBA is present to serve media/multimedia files, as well, to Smart TV, tablets, phones, or PCs which have an app to access SAMBA shares.

The option to switch to another windows manager has been disabled. Should you exit/Log Out to the command prompt the correct command to restart X is:

Code:
xwin openbox-session


The intention is that Chrome is run as root with no sandboxing. That facilitates the easy update method used and avoids problems with the CUPS GUI.
Please therefore do NOT tick the "Run Internet apps as spot" box in Quick Setup / First-Run.
