Immediately after startup (desktop) I load up a set of tui windows (tilda tabs) one of which is iftop and it looks like bionicpup is doing quite a bit of 'calling home' (to ubuntu). I've also seen a connection to google in that set (suspect that might be in-code somewhere i.e. validating that a internet connection is alive).

Why? And can it be disabled?

Try disabling
/Startup/PPMupdatedatabase
/Startup/youtube-dl-update
/Startup/getflash_auto

@mavrothal

I am curious as to disabling all of these calling home stuff.

Is it done in a text editor? or in a terminal?

Would I as a novice user have to do this for privacy?

Sorry but I just started using Bionicpup64 8.0 C.E.

Start rox file manager by clicking the house icon at the top left of the desktop

Click the Startup folder

Right click any file you want to disable, and click Properties.

Uncheck the 3 Exec checkboxes

Some things you don't need to disable, but I don't want youtube-dl updating every time Puppy boots/reboots/restarts X windows. Same with updating the package manager.

You can right click a file to View As Text if you are curious. And also you can edit a file to disable it if you want.

You can drag and move files to the disabled folder. Or even delete them, if you're sure. Sometimes Puppy will reinstall some of these files.

There are configuration programs in the menu too.

Hi Phil,

Thanks for the latest update.
I am currently running 2 copies of BionicPup64 8.0, one with the original jwm
and the other with Radky's FbBox 5.0.

A chill out video of the latter can be found here:

Has anyone reached to use VLC media player in Bionicpup64?

Many weeks using Bionicpup64 8.0 as my first O.S. in full install, and if I need to process some video, I must back to a Tahr frugal install aside Bionic in my HD.

Tryed VLC pet or sfs or appimage from various repositories... unlucky.

Hi watchdog. Thanks for the help.

Have partially success, but there is some errors in bug folder about this items:
vlc-plugin-video-output
vlc-plugin-qt
vlc-plugin-base
vlc-data
vlc-bin

although VLC start in an error windows showing this:
libvlc warning: cannot read /usr/lib/vlc/plugins/plugins.dat: No such file or directory
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'file:///root/%24%40'.

running from command line it shows:
[000055a84e19f4b0] vlcpulse audio output error: PulseAudio server connection failure: Connection refused
[000055a84df5a630] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'

Quote:

This may be caused by /usr/local/bin/roxfiler

If you open the file as text and it contains this:
Code:
exec /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/AppRun "${@#*file://}"

then it will not work properly with URIs.

The code should be changed to this
Code:
exec /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/AppRun "$@"

which should work properly with XDG URIs.

Code:
file:///root/%24%40

is really this:
Code:
file:///root/$@


Quote:
XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'

is a harmless error message. You can fix that by putting this:
Code:
export XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/tmp/runtime-root

in /etc/profile or /etc/profile.local

This is my /etc/profile.locale file:
Code:
export XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/tmp/runtime-root
export TZ=EST5EDT
case $DISPLAY in
*:*) TERM=rxvt-unicode-256color ; COLORTERM=rxvt-unicode-256color ;;
*) TERM=ansi ; COLORTERM=ansi ;;
esac
export TERM COLORTERM


I don't know if VLC will run using apulse. You can try starting VLC from the command line using apulse, like this:
Code:
apulse vlc

if "vlc" is what you use to start VLC.

You might be able to configure VLC to use Alsa rather than PulseAudio in VLC's preferences menu.

Apulse is not needed. Open Vlc Preferences and choose Alsa output: default is Automatic which fails choosing Pulseaudio. Then choose default output card in Audio menu.
