PostPosted: Sun 26 Apr 2009, 17:32    Post subject: Patches don't work  

Tried to install two of the above patches, the one for SCIM and the REMAX patch. Both gave the pink failure screen about not opening in proper folder or being corrupt. Othersc installed without a hitch.
AMD Duron 800 on old compaq 5000 series desktop, 1g swap 784 RAM
40g hd running Live CD 0f 4.2 unmodified. Used directions in 41 languages to get it working, but would like to have patch available next time.
Thanks stray

Interesting. I installed both on my test bed when they were supplied and they installed fine.

Here is a workaround until I figure out why that is happening:

1. Use pet2tgz from a console to convert the downloaded pet file to a tgz compressed archive

2. Use Xarchiver to extract the archive to its appropriate folders

3. Copy the resulting folders into your Puppy 4.2 directory structure where they should go.


I think the pink message is given when the file name is not identical to the folder name from which the pet was created. So, for example, if you renamed remax-4.2.1 to remax-4.2.1RC and then tried to install it would throw up that error.

Hope that helps

I just tried downloading the gtk one, and something renamed the + in the name to '%2B'.

You can either rename it by hand, or use this direct link to the copy on my server.
gtk+-2.12.1-xinput.pet

Could be just my system. All I did was download and open with default. Did not save file. Maybe doesn,t like live CD. Not a show stopper as there are work-a rounds Rolling Eyes . Thanks for the reply......

I just checked and it did that to me too, in Seamonkey. Do you use Seamonkey, PG? If not, maybe it's a forum storage issue? Confused

I should have realised from my old days with DOS and 11.3 naming conventions! Rolling Eyes I thought Linux handled that better, and it does, but apparently wikis and forums are not Linux? Wink Thanks, `f00!

Firefox here. I agree, probably a forum issue.

Hey WhoDo You know how I made up the 5 search engines for Seamonkey right, well I made a new one for Barry's Blog that works excellent, If you do a search on Barry's Blog say for 'Gparted' you get 2 results, if you do one with the search engine, you get 44 results. So anyways here's the tiny pet. Ps its also a quick way to his forum.

I updated JWM to the latest snapshot on page 1 of this thread, The numbers don't, he just keeps uploading newer releases with the same number??? So I added a '-1' so you know its update #1, anyways It has better features I guess like hovering over the windows tabs will give you info, and other things. enjoy

There is a patch (fixed JWM + Flash10) which fixes a LOT of problems with full-screen video playback in sites like youtube. Look at TurboPup for instance. Why aren't these in the list? And what about the gxine patch to allow it to go full-screen without bugs (or is that included in the JWM patch which is also not included)?

Flash10 will never be in the "official" patches because it is just too big for inclusion in standard Puppy. Instead it was made available in the PETget repository. The Gxine full screen in JWM issue has been resolved and is included in the main release. JWM has been retained at an earlier version because the newer version is not yet considered mature enough to include.

What you are asking about here are actually not "official" fixes or patches which is why none of them is posted here. Turbopup is a puplet and not a standard Puppy release either.

I hope that explains things for you.

Yep I have to agree with WhoDo, The latest jwm isn't tested fully, I've been using it since it came out and never had a issue, and Barry is using it in woof alpha6 and still no bad reports, but its a tough call, it works really stable, but sometimes things are overlooked, say if you hit 2 keys together and it crashes?? These things haven't really been tested yet. But for everyday use, I give it a thumbs up.
