Subject description: Old dog learns new trick.
 

G'day jrb,

jrb wrote (twice!):
Tackling the Cups problem first. I don't remember CUPS-PDF ever working for me, but "Print to File"->PDF always has.

Only having to be told twice Embarassed Rolling Eyes , I have just tried this top-line printer option in the 'Print' dialog window, on a spreadsheet print and on an image print and both gave pdfs.

Force-of-habit had made me not even see this when choosing a 'Printer' (I've usually looked for a paper-printer at the bottom of the options).
My other weak excuse is it doesn't indicate in the dialog that 'Print to file' will create a pdf.
For other slow learners like me, could the dialog box be modified to add 'pdf' to the option of 'Print to file' as I was thinking this would just make some sort of text file.

Thanks for your help with this which has solved my problem.

David S.

I'm just glad it worked. Didn't have much of a clue where to go on this. I suspect modifying that dialog box is a bit above my paygrade, but I'm pretty sure I can remove CUPS-PDF from it. I've already made it happen on a running copy of Bionic32-light but I won't know until I woof up an updated version. Planning on doing that in the next two hours.

I have issued the first update using a .delta file. See page 1. I will repeat myself here:

Put the original upupbb32-light-19.03-uefi+0.iso file and the upupbb32-light-19.03-uefi+0.iso___upupbb32-light-19.03-uefi+1.iso.delta file in the same directory.
Click once on the .delta file and then click "Generate" and its a done deal. Cool

md5sum of .delta file = 5519a630260022190c3acc867fc77274
md5sum of new .iso = 58d7da08b2fc5a9580f69931344c5db7

generated ISO here: http://archive.org/download/Puppy_Linux_Upup_Bionic_Beaver/upupbb32-light-19.03-uefi_plus1.iso

(note '+' replaced with '_plus' as archive.org doesn't always play well with the plus sign)

Hi, Ally. Can you manually change the contents of an iso you have uploaded to archive.org?

Booted from the new Bionic32-light with pmedia=ataflash.
Rebooted, making a savefolder.
Did sfs-load of iron-69.0.3600.0-i386.sfs
Am posting from it now.
There's a save icon on the desktop.

Thanks a lot.

Subject description: Gdmap_Preview
 

In the Precise-light thread, jrb mentioned Gdmap_Preview.
I found 'Gdmap graphical disk usage' in this Bionic32-light's menu under Filesystem, and looked at the map of /initrd/pup_ro2/

I just posted the 2nd Update upupbb32-light-19.03-uefi+0.iso___upupbb32-light-19.03-uefi+2.iso.delta on page 1. This is a fairly important update. Please replace your upupbb32-light-19.03-uefi+1.iso
with upupbb32-light-19.03-uefi+2.iso. The differences are very small and your save files from +1 should not be affected.

Thanks, J

I'm wondering how everyone likes the Firefox-portable installer in the latest updates? I'm reasonably confident that I can do something similar with Seamonkey and Palemoon. Anyone interested?

I think inclusion of installers is a great way to provide web-browsers without taking up space in ISO and using bandwidth. Maybe a front-end providing the user with the option to choose among the mozillas & the palemoon fork.

Firefox/Palemoon-portable Installer would be a cool Gadged ...i would prefer it over the other Methods ......(don`t exactly know why .......probably cause it is so "portable" .

Good Idea !!..... long overdue!

Hello jrb and all.

IMO, that's a waste of time. All major browsers already come as
"portable" installs -- just without the qualifier.

E.g. seamonkey: download, unpack in /mnt/home, create a symlink of the
browser exec in /usr/bin, whip up a *desktop file if you like, and you're
done. The same for all others.

Why complicate simple? Smile

BFN.

Because it ain't simple. Current Seamonkeys, firefoxes and palemoons are published expecting the operating system to supply gtk3 and use pulse-audio. I think the former is in Bionic-light, but not the latter. The portable installers download the published build, provide apulse as a pulse-audio alternative and gtk3 with the necessary code and wrapper for the application to use those. gtk3, if unnecessary, could be left out of its installer.

Hi, mikeslr.

Providing a couple of pets for apulse and gtk3 would be enough, no?
No need for overkill. Maybe include a brief how-to, and that's it.

Also, a concern is WHERE will the installer be installing this big beast? You
don't want to clog the user's pupsave.

A pre-chewed installer... wow.
Must the younger generations of Puppyists be fed baby food?

BFN.
