This will be the first non-pupget, non-dotpup software I've installed in Puppy. Here's the download page of the website. Would someone be so kind as to tell me which one of the several versions for Linux would be best to use for Puppy?

Thanks. Smile

Looks like you'll have to go for the debian packages and try undeb on them.

PostPosted: Sun 20 Nov 2005, 10:58    Post subject: Gizmo pkg available for testing  

I've packaged the debs for gizmo and required libs (from rpm) into dotpups. To install gizmo you need the 10 following packages.
NB Edits are in green.
~~~~~~~

Gizmo packages:
{1} gizmo-project 9.2M / 6.4M - install / download
http://www3.rapidupload.com/d.php?file=dl&filepath=5212

{2} libsipphoneapi 8.5M / 2.6M - install / download
http://www3.rapidupload.com/d.php?file=dl&filepath=5218

{3} **EDIT** bonjour needed again (file reattached below)

{4} GConf2 4.6M / 1.2M install / download - Edited 2005/12/13
http://www8.rapidupload.com/d.php?file=dl&filepath=1850


Required libs:
{5} libtiff 0.4M / 0.1M - install / download
http://www3.rapidupload.com/d.php?file=dl&filepath=5238

{6} libORBit 0.4M / 0.1M - install/download
http://www3.rapidupload.com/d.php?file=dl&filepath=5239

{7} libstdc++.so.6
http://noforum.de/dotpups/mplayer-1.0-pre7-try2/mplayerplugin-for-mozilla/libstdc++6.pup

{8} libCurl (included in the curl package) - Edited 2005/12/13
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/download.php?id=703

{9} libGconf2 0.2M / 0.1M - install/download (attached)
{10} libidn 0.9M / 0.2M - install/download (attached)

When loading gizmo it opens the browser with url "file://-h/", this is the way it locates and tests your browser. I was able to create an account using it so far. Don't have any contacts using gizmo so I can't truly test it.

It may be useful to run gizmo from console to note any errors that popup during the testing phase.

Wow, thanks! Very Happy

As soon as I get my chores caught up I'll try it out in my multisession DVD.

Eventually, if wireless becomes a point-and-click proposition in Puppy I will remaster Puppy with whichever VOIP applications are proven to work and send a disk to my brother to try on his laptop. He has high-speed wireless internet access, courtesy of his neighbor. He doesn't like fooling around with his computer to get things to work so I don't think I could talk him into trying to make wireless work in Puppy, but he'd boot up a CD or DVD I sent him to try.

Okay, I downloaded all 3 files to my /root/downloads folder (that I created for this purpose) and then clicked on each of them and installed it. Now what do I do? I can't find anything that looks like a clickable icon for Gizmo on my desktop. Laughing

Actually, there are seven files, four of the hosted externally. I've modified the links so it would be easier to recognise --hopefully.

*EDIT*
BTW, the dotpups were created with MU dotpup-wizard so a menue entry is created "Start" -> dotpups -> gizmo. Will fix its icon with the next version.

I don't have a clue what I've done wrong but there is no Start -> Dotpups in my Puppy Crying or Very sad Is installing a dotpup supposed to add the Dotpup category to the Start menu if it wasn't already there?

the gizmo-project dotpup is the only one that creates a menu entry. It should indicate that it created a menue entry and to restart the wm to see the entry unless you are using icewm.

to make sure it was installed, open a console type gizmo and hit enter.

Hmm. I must have done something wrong. I restarted the xwindow and there is still no Dotpup entry in the Start menu or any trace of Gizmo anywhere I can find. When I type "gizmo" in rxvt prompt, I get:

Code:
# gizmo
Bash: gizmo: command not found
#


Perhaps I need to cd to a different directory? If so, which one?

Hold on! I didn't read your first post closely enough. Embarassed I just figured out that there are 4 files I didn't download; the ones at rapidload.com. I've now downloaded them. I'll report back when I've installed them. I already installed the 3 files from the forum.

5 minutes later: Have installed the 4 files I downloaded from rapidload.com. I installed Gizmoproject.pup last and it did indeed create a "Dotpups -> Run Gizmo" entry to the Start menu. Unfortunately nothing happens when I click it. When I type "gizmo" in a console I get this:
Code:
# gizmo
gizmo: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Oops forgot to mention that libstdc++.so.6 was required. It's available on the wiki or via dotpup-downloader. Here's the link to it --

Okay, thanks. I installed that and restarted xwin just for good measure, but still nothing happens when I click on Start -> Dotpups -> Run-Gizmo, and when I run "gizmo" in a console I get:
Code:
# gizmo
gizmo: error while loading shared libraries: libcurl.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

You're right, seems I missed that one.

I usu. test my dotpups with a fresh pupxxx file to make sure I get all the dependencies covered. This one prob. slipped because my usr_devx.sfs was loaded.

libcurl is available in the curl dotpup. Download link http://www.murga.org/~puppy/download.php?id=703.

~~~~~

Installed all eight dotpups and tested with a clean pup001 file without usr_devx.sfs loaded. That should be the last dependency (fingers crossed).

Woohoo! Success! Or at least Start -> Dotpups -> Run Gizmo does something now. I didn't go any farther than the signup screen you get when Gizmo opens, but it looks like your dotpups worked. Thanks much, jcoder24.

Now, on to the next step.

A few hours later: got it to sort of work. Gizmo test numbers
