I'm having trouble using the version of gpg2 from the debian repo (see thread) [...] If so may I request that we incorporate gpg2 into the next release of dpup stretch?

Hi s243a!
AFAIK Debian Stretch has no gpg2 version yet. What it has is just a symlink to gpg. That's it. You can check this out here (evidently, the same goes for Dpup Stretch, I guess Crying or Very sad )

If I'm talking nonsense, somebody please let me know Very Happy

Included browser is Palemoon 27.9.3 which is fairly recent.
Update to Palemoon 28.x is easy to do but there may be a few issues with it so you may choose not to.
Other browsers can be easily installed.
Why do you ask the question, what is your specific concern?

This Puppy is 32bit so no recent Chrome is available. If it MUST be Google Chrome then it will have to be an older one.

Other Chromium derivative browsers are available, some don't produce 32bit versions any more, but others still do. Slimjet worked last time I looked but has to be run as spot, not as root. Vivaldi works, but the User Interface is not everybody's cup of tea. I like it myself but it is personal taste.

I don't think there is a Puppy Stretch repo as such. I suggest you look in the Additional Software > Browsers and Internet section of this forum for suggestions but read carefully to determine which packages are suitable.

I haven't tried it under Dpup Stretch, but I rather like OscarTalks' SWIron, which I've discussed and provide a link to here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1006640#1006640.

As a long time fan of opera's speed-dial, I usually install the extension named "Speed Dial 2 New Tab". With it, two webpages are one click away when it opens: (1) This Forum's Index page, and (2) https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=015995643981050743583%3Aabvzbibgzxo&q=#gsc.tab=0 a dedicted Puppy Linux Google-Search page.

Adding https://start.me/start/us/startpage as another "launcher" puts many commonly used websites 2 clicks away. start.me is the default Home page of Palemoon. But I wish I could figure out how to add my two Puppy "launchers" to it without "signing in". I suspect that "signing in" may be necessary to obtain the green + icon said to be at the top-right which is to be clicked to initiate the widget construction process, but which does not appear.

PostPosted: Sat 13 Oct 2018, 12:57    Post subject: Gnumeric file open
Subject description: not opening data file that has been clicked
 

I have the 32 bit rc3, kernel 4.9.101 frugal install. Gnumeric is v1.10.17.
When a data file like .xls, xml, etc is clicked, Gnumeric opens but does not open the data file. I tested on another computer running kernel 4.9.71 and got the same result. Here are other test:

The file/open in Gnumeric and drag & drop both work correctly in rc3.

Opened terminal and ran: gnumeric /path/filename
Same result, Gnumeric opens but does not open the data file.

Tested with Slacko 6.3.0 that has Gnumeric v1.10.17
Clicked data file, Gnumeric opens and opens the data file.


This seems like it may just be related to Gnumeric that's in Dpup

Anyone know to correct this?

Maybe a mime file can be modified.

Also the script that launches the app must have file in quotes.
For instance I found that I had to have "$@" after the app name
in a wrapper script I wrote to open audacious by clicking a song.


Code:
/usr/bin/audacious  "$@"

Check the desktop file in /usr/share/applications/

___________________________________________

By the way this was the wrapper script ....

Code:
#!/bin/sh
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/audacious64-2.5.1/usr/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
/usr/bin/audacious  "$@"


I was storing the libraries in a different place to be safe.
_____________________________________________


I made a desktop icon to launch audacious --->

Code:
sed -i "s|</pinboard>|<icon x=\"72\" y=\"482\" label=\"Audacious\">/usr/bin/audacious-wrapper</icon>\n</pinboard>|" "/root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin"



This changed the puppypin file.

Here is the package I was making....

@WIZard

Can confirm gnumeric is performing as per your post using gnumeric 1.10.17 in dpup stretch rc3.

I checked in upupbb which also has gnumeric 1.10.17, when clicked on a file in rox, or from a terminal, gnumeric is started displaying the intended file as expected.

Hi don570,

Tried right clicking data file and choosing: Open with Gnumeric
=did not load data file

The mime file is:
#! /bin/sh
exec defaultspreadsheet "$1"

Tried changing to "$@"
=did not load data file

Tried changing to: exec gnumeric "$1"
=did not load data file

Created the script file gn.sh containing:
#! /bin/sh
gnumeric "$@"

Executed in terminal: ./gn.sh /path/filename
=did not load data file

All of these test work with other apps like Abiword or Geany, just don't know why Gnumeric fails.

Let me know if I missed something in your reply.

Thanks

@Terry H

Thanks for the confirmation, at least I won't feel like the village idiot for something I missed on my systems. LOL

Hi WiZard,

Load the /usr/bin/gnumeric wrapper in a text editor and replace the exec line with the following:

exec /usr/bin/gnumeric-1.10.17 "$@" 2>/dev/null &

---

I will include this fix, plus many more, in the next release (RC4).

Thanks
