yes it's nice, if i remember right, the only thing that does not work is the diashow. i'm using it as an sfs.

BUT MAKE SURE to have a large pup_save (i think it needs bigger than 512 MB).

cheers

Sub_title: cant get away from 2.2
 

I un-installed Picasa 2.2 that I had been using and tried installing the new 2.7 .pet (I'm using Lighthouse Pup based on 3.01 on my notebook). The installer reported that I had missing libs:
libgphoto2.so.0
libgphoto_port.so.0
Went to Ttuuxxx's excellent library resource on Puppylinux.ca and found that both these libs had a zero entry.
Downloaded the nearest equivalents (looked like later versions) renamed to the missing lib names, rebooted and found two entries in the graphics menu:
Picasa
Picasa Image something
Tried the first which displayed a message complained I had two files (?not sure exactly what it said) but I had the option to continue which I clicked.
Picasa did come up but I used .. help .. about and it reported Picasa 2.2 and it looked exactly the same as before.
I've uninstalled, rebooted, and re-installed the .pet for 2.7 a couple of times. I no longer get missing lib messages, but after the .pet has completed, all I ever see is Picasa 2.2.
Any hints? I can live with 2.2 but I wouldn't mind trying 2.7
Thanks, B.

I'm using Lighthouse Pup 3.01a4 by Tazoc
It's essentially Puppy 3.01 with some additions and modifications.
So far I have not encountered any difficulties installing .pups or .pets through the Petget package manager.

hi barburo,

maybe the uninstall went wrong and you have now both packages with one bin in /usr/bin (2.2) and one in /usr/local/bin (2.7). if this is the case i think puppy will pick the one from /usr/bin.

so you might look into these folders or try

which picasa

from console.

maybe this helps.

cheers
aragon

you really you should have both packages completely removed and just install 1.
just right click on a package and select copy
then change the .pet to tgz and hit enter
now click on the package and uncompress it into a folder
search for each file and manually delete it
hope this helps
ttuuxxx
once 2.7 is installed open console and type picsa

tip from my slackware experience Rolling Eyes

ldd is your friend

Code:
ldd /pathtopicassa/executable


it will list libraries and notify of any missing ones........ i don't think using slackware is possible without eventually having to use ldd LOL


on second thought im not 100% sure ldd will work since they are using some wine stuff to get picasa going on linux at least that is what i heard

I think I have discovered the cause of the problems but I do not know how to fix it.
I carefully removed all traces of picasa from my system, rebooted, checked using P-find for all occurences of picasa and I find I have a directory:
/opt/picasa
that is empty, but that I cannot remove, nor can I transfer any files to it.
By looking inside the .pet for picasa 2.7 I see that /opt/picasa is the directory that picasa 2.7 wants to install to.

I've tried all sorts of things:
- transferring the contents of /opt to a new directory and deleting /opt - returns an error - cannot delete /opt/picasa
- testing whether I could write to /opt/picasa/ but not allowed - input/output error.
- changing permissions to give owner read/write - makes no difference - I still cannot delete or write to it.
Is there a brute-force sort of way of eliminating this directory?
I also tried rm and rmdir to no avail.
Obviously if I can't write to it neither can the .pet install to it.

hmm... you could try to manually extract the .pet and copy out the files to where you want

rename *.pet to .tar.bz2 and extract to /picasa with pupzip

not sure .tar.bz2 is correct could be .tar.zip or .tar.gz or just .tar

Thanks for your suggestions.
I did some digging around. As I continually get input/output error, most suggestions are disk error - I really hope not.
I'll run disk diagnostics and see.
***Edit Decided to reformat the partition to ext3 from ext2.
Weird part is that when I booted a ram-only puppy, then mounted my pup-save file I was able to delete the /opt/picasa directory.
I once again tried installing the picasa 2.7 .pet - didn't work, so I removed it using the package manager, which left (once again) several un-deletable directories under /opt/picasa.
Made sure all my files were copied to another partition, reformatted to ext3 using gparted, copied back the files I need for my frugal install and now I'm back in business again.
However, I think I'll abandon picasa 2.7 for now.

sorry to hear about that Barburo
but if you think about 24mb compressed pet just to view images, It has bloat written all over it, I never use it at all, I don't even have installed or saved locally Smile
Gpicview is my choice image viewer Smile

PostPosted: Sat 25 Oct 2008, 04:21    Post_subject: Install Picasa without success  

In my enthusiasm about MacPUP Dingo I try to install a similar system as my OpenSuSE 11 configuration, Installing Picasa was just on click, I hoped it would be the same here.

The installation of Picasa 2.7.3736-15 24MB was easy, even got a message that is was successfully installed, but I can't get it running, after I read this forum I know it's not that easy. I use Picasa quite a lot, has someone succeed install this application?
