Oh, last thing ... I'm quite enthusiastic about this one ... SliTaz and Tiny Core compatibility for Puppy, how does that sound? SliTaz's package manager is just bash scripts and one gtkdialog frontend, that can be easily ported. TC's extensions mechanism is even simpler, just SFSs with all files, plus a script (similar to pinstall.sh). The problem is FLWM/JWM menu incompatibility.


big_bass has already ported the slitaz package manager. See the Slaxer_Pup thread.

Yeah I already mentioned that ayttm crashes msn and doesn't work with current yahoo. I'm not sure that there's another good im that's lightweight and supports all protocols, pidgin is the only good alternative but it's fat. Maybe ditch ayttm and put xchat in for irc, and for other im's put menu entry that opens meebo or some other web client like they did in 4.2. After connecting to irc guys from #puppylinux can instruct users to install pidgin or something else. We should definitely have pidgin 2.6.4 compiled at least in repo. I managed to compile it but without voice/video suport as it requires a lot of gstreamer libs.

dejan555,

Agree, lets ditch ayttm and i'll compile latest pidgin with gstreamer and put it in repo...might as well have something available that we know works well.

Dpup482beta is no more.... Confused

After the huge backend updates i've just finished, the next Dpup will be 484beta1.
Polishing and bug fixing on 482 will continue, for addition to 484.
There is no timescale on this release yet....

Initial changes are listed below:

Can you ditch puptV in favour of my new app, pupRadio? (it includes pupTelly and is smaller.. more bang for byte Wink

__________________________________________________________

Now, I managed to compile the latest tint2 but not without some extreme head banging! It is now only a 36k pet, and a special thanks to the guys at the google code tint2 site.

Musher0, you can start tint2 from your pekwm startup script. Smile

Compiling tint2 was a nightmare. We certainly have a problem with our imlib2, it refused to compile against it, so I used patriot's version, sorry I don't have the link at hand.

The other problem is a Debian issue, but really a libtool problem. I finally got through ./configure with no errors only to have make flake on me Evil or Very Mad . The first problem was "can't find /usr/X11R7/libXext.la". Oh dear, so I stole the one out of 431.. naughty yes.. then it was lixcbxlib.la... hmmm, funny, libxcb and libxcb-xlib are there... so on some googling i found some heated discussion about lib*.la files and Debian not supporting them and how it's really a libtool issue. FFS! I wanna compile an app, not rebuild the OS! Anyway, I found libxcb-xlib on ttuuxxx repo at puppylinux.ca (thanks ttuuxxx, Eric) but on installing that I got a meltdown of X. Oh dear yet again. Lucky I know that I can restore originals from pup_ro2.. did that got X back. I left the libxcb-xlib.la file there though (/usr/lib). Ok , Next was libxcb! Oh dear again? It was a bit like dependency chasing manually in Puppy, a real PITA! Ok, one more the actual libXext.so lib, found that in 431. Yay 'make' ran! Woohoo.

Updated pet is on Page 1 of this thread ( .txt file is at dpup.org in my repo.)

Cheers

The 483 is a secret or phantom release? Wink

PostPosted: Tue 15 Dec 2009, 07:36    Post subject: Using a samba printer share  

When trying to help a French fellow poster, I tried to do the setup myself and followed this procedure.
I didn't succeed in configuring correctly CUPS.
In the device selection I should have «Windows shared printer via sambe» or something the like.
Instead I got something like unknown device on....
I deleted the smbspool symlink as instructed in such a case and recreated it, but I still get the same weird device in the selection list.

I then did the same thing in puppy 4.3.1
No problem at all, I could print.

Did someone succeed in using a Windows shared printer un dpup?
What could be the cause of the failure?

Menu-->Setup-->Cups Printer Wizard

Answer Yes to add new printer...Get Cups Welcome Screen

Select Add Printer Button

Choose Windows Printer via SAMBA from dropdown...Press Contine

Enter URI of printer etc etc

Works for me every time.

Guy, (gposil)
To define the printer in CUPS, that's exactly the procedure I use.
But I have the unknown device (see picture)
When I select this, I can go on in the configuration which seems to be accepted, but when trying to print the test page, the job starts, but after a while I get an error in smb and the job is stopped.

Maybe I have a corruption in the samba client support for the printer or in the save file. Note that I can go to my HDD shares without a problem.

Some time ago I installed the samba server, but as it didn't work I uninstalled it. I hope some support isn't uninstalled as well.

In PPM, searching samba, I only see samba_3.2.5 server and common files.
Should I install the common files?
Bernard

I think that's exactly what has happened...You will have to re-install samba-3.0.26.pet and samba_client-3.0.26.pet from the Puppy-4 packages at ibiblio

Just this far from giving up...

Can't get the devx package to incorporate either through the boot manager or with the sfs-linker...

=-=-=
On another front, what is dpup doing to keep the capacity for localization without little or big headaches ? The preceding exchanges/posts about the libiconv library were a bit scary for a non-Anglophone...

You don't need the full samba server package to access a Windows shared printer. These two files should be sufficient:

/opt/samba/bin/smbspool
/etc/opt/samba/smb.conf

Windows shared printer

@rcrsn51
I have those two files.
I followed the How to you wrote.

Installing the advised samba client didn't help
Installing the advises samba didn't help either.

I am afraid, that with all the testing I did, apt_synaptic installing apps, uninstalling, uninstalling apt_synaptic, that I got corruption in the save file.
It's probably better to start with a fresh save file.

Talking to myself (:-/), I'd answer that I've reassured musher0 about the localisation issue by copying all the *.mo files from Toutou 4.12 in the corresponding dpup directories. It seems to work so far for the programs I've used.

But I'm not talking to myself, I'm posting in a forum. Laughing

Tasgarth, tu as lu ça ? Bonne nouvelle, non ? (Tasgarth, have you read this? Good news, no?)

gposil: pidgin-light maybe?

Should I compile udev for dpup? Does dpup use udev at all? If that's the case, I'll compile udev-147 with custom rules (I'll remove stuff like tape devices, all pre-i686 era stuff), because if I remembe right, it was released with 2.6.31.x. And no, udev-149 doesn't compile on my Debian. If that goes right, I'll try to compile util-linux-ng and module-init-tools.

EDIT: yes, it does ... ancient udev-124.

BTW: dpup has BusyBox svn from the 1.15 era, not 1.15.2.
