More (Seamonkey) bugs:

- When you set 'Appearance -> Show toolbars as pictures only' in the Seamonkey preferences , the Puppy throbber goes wild.

- The caret flashes rapidly in the URL and search bar (unlike any version of Seamonkey before 1.1.15)
Very annoying.

The above happened using an 800x600 resolution, but did not occur in Puppy 4.1.2.


At 1600x1200, 1920x1080 or 1920x1200,the trash and lock icons appear in the center of the screen.

Puppy 4.2 looks nice Cool
You guys did a terrific job !

I am very happy to see that you updated HomeBank to 4.0.2.

I am having a problem importing .qfx (Quicken) type files, it spits out an error: "OFX support disabled"

I know this works in Fedora, is there something I can do to enable it ?
Or is that a compile time option ?

Thanks,
Richard.
Thanks you brought that up.
I already in the 3.xx raised the lack of ofx import.
Homebank needs a libofx library

Not good at compiling I found a source and tried to compile anyway.
The libofx didn't work and from the Homebank forum I understood that when compiling Homebank libofx should have been included.

Hopefully one day someone will do this.

When Building a puppy release we try to reduce the amount of dependencies as much as possible, so if they call for extra libs for extra plugins, we usually ignore them unless they are essential, like Abiword most plugins are in that, but Homebank isn't used by everyone, only a small amount probably use it, If I get a chance I'll compile homebank again. maybe tomorrow after my job interview.

Annoying bug...

my netgear wg311v3 wireless adapter is not working in Puppy 4.2 (as in Puppy 4.1.2 and Puppy 4.1.1 and 4.1)

in Puppy 3.01, same adapter works fine via ndiswrapper, why in latest puppy (included Deep Thought) is not working?

This is a bug using sane
First, my Canon Canoscan usb scanner works fine and is recognized.
Second, Sane does preview scans fine.
I select the save option, specify a file name and location and scan, no file is saved.
If I click on the floppy icon and try to save, no file is saved.
Also, upon trying to save to a file, sane crashes (dissapears)
Checking dmesg in terminal shows segmentation faults of supporting libraries when trying to save.
So, has anyone else tried sane and been able to save a scanned image?

I can understand that trade-offs have to be made.
But I'd rather see no application, then half an application in a release.
F.E. as for me Abiword is unimportant, but I can understand not for everybody. As is Homebank. As there are no polls on the subject nobody really knows.

Altho I remember a lot of disappointment expressed about Homebank not really useable due to the lack of ofx import.

But as said before, I am rather in favor of support for 3+ sfs files and have full support for applications like Homebank or others.in a separate sfs.
I am even in favor to have browsers in a separate sfs. Each one his sfs. Netsurf (or another) being the base browser.
The same for windows manager. Met JWM be the chosen one and add Icewm, KDE, Gnome XFCE, ..... as a selectable sfs option.

I am speaking in terms of a frugal install.
For a full install, pet's are the way to go.

Thank you in advance for any work you might do.

Beem, Homebank the way it sits in puppy is a fully functional application that does save in its own file format. Anyone can start it, set it up, type the needed information and save it. Then they can reopen it and retrieve what they typed and modify it and save it again. Sounds fully functional and not half a application, What you are asking for is a addon/extra that makes it compatible with other applications, That is a extra, like Gxine, it has some formats included and plays most things, but its still not compatible with all media formats, there are extras that could be added to that package also, and would double the size. Like I said I'll compile again, Just for you. Nobody else is complaining.

Ttuuxxx,
In a way you are right, but it is stupid to copy your bank statement one by one in an application.
And Homebank has an import facility and if Homebank was compiled with the libofx support, then I could import directly my PC banking movements via the ofx format. This has been confirmed by the Homebank people.

But as Homebank in puppy is NOT compiled with libofx, for me it's a crippled application.

If I could have my bank movements in QIF format, the import/export for it is there now. But my bank gives ofx, which is an open format.

Béèm.

Like I said beem I'll start compiling it for you right now, So be Happy already Smile There also was a issue with 4.12 Homebank, do you remember what that was?, I went out of my way and fixed it when I compiled the one 4.2 but that was like 100 compiles back,lol and I forget now, If you remember quickly respond so I don't leave it out, Since I'm no long working on 4.2 and have moved on to Dpup, I would like to just focus on one version Smile of Puppy at a time.

One thing I did was change Homebanks icons and save a lot of space.

Ttuxxx, thank you for the offer, but don't spend too much time on it.

I don't remember the issue in 4.1.2. I googled but didn't find back.

I think, when I tried and failed miserably to compile libofx, I got the code from here
I remember I had to go from compile session to compile session, as dependencies were reported missing at each run, until finally I had a libofx, but it didn't work with Homebank then. Sad

Looking forward to see work on dpup. I tried the 014 one, but it didn't detect my e-sata connected external HDD. Probably a kernel issue.
upup 015 however detects that HDD, but the kernel version is higher.

I suppose you will give news on dpup in the woof 3 thread?

Ok Beem you owe me one for this Wink
2 packages one is the main application and one is all the locales, please tell me how it works, So I know if I should release it in the Software section.
Oh by the way I think it will be a option because its larger, 1MB compressed as a pet.larger. Maybe a repo item ? The locales are the size of the package in 4.2 Wink
