Got national characters to work with Beaver in Puppy 1.0.7

PC: Dell Inspiron 510m with 855GME chipset (i810 family)

-Started with fresh pup001
-Chose "fi" for keyboard (still no "se" for Swedish keyboard)
-Ran xorgwizard (1280x1024x16, USB kbd, USB wheelmouse) all work
-Added .Xmodmap in /root for Swedish keyboard
-Tested Beaver - same problem reported earlier: comes out as EDV
-Saved xorg.conf as xorg.conf_107
-Installed MU's xorg682c.pup
-Ran xorgwizard again to recreate correct links, etc
-Copied xorg.conf_107 back over xorg.conf just to make sure
-Restarted X by running "xwin"
-Desktop, keyboard, mouse as before.
-Tested Beaver - now work correctly for the first time!
-Used Control Panel to set locale to sv_FI@euro
-Used Control Panel to set TZ to GMT+1
-Tested Beaver again - doesn't crash as before ... and still work!
-OK, so what is different??

Note: this was written using Beaver in Puppy 1.0.7 as setup above.

Code:

# which beaver
/usr/local/bin/beaver
# ldd /usr/local/bin/beaver
        libgtk-1.2.so.0 => /usr/lib/libgtk-1.2.so.0 (0x40017000)
        libgdk-1.2.so.0 => /usr/lib/libgdk-1.2.so.0 (0x4015d000)
        libgmodule-1.2.so.0 => /usr/lib/libgmodule-1.2.so.0 (0x40198000)
        libglib-1.2.so.0 => /usr/lib/libglib-1.2.so.0 (0x4019b000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x401c1000)
        libXi.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXi.so.6 (0x401c5000)
        libXext.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x401cd000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x401db000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x402a6000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x402c9000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)


So it might be worth a try to replace one of the last files (libX...) with those from my Dotpup for tests.

If that does not helps, one of the configs might be different.

Mark, I'm not sure I understand. Is the code above from 107 or from your dotpup?

Which config files do you mean?

No, these are comands:

Find out where is beaver:
which beaver
Find out what libs it uses:
ldd /usr/local/bin/beaver

Configfiles are in /usr/X11R6/lib
There are subfolders for fonts and other stuff.

Just tried it with X.org 6.9 (from this post http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=4956 , but it has a ATI-Radeon-Driver only at moment), but that crashes beaver, too Confused

Ok, with this output we know beaver uses these files.
So you could replace them on a clean Puppy 107 with the files from my dotpup.
If it works then, we "solved" the problem without installing the whole xorg 682.
If that does not solve it, we had to search further, for example find out, what configfiles have informations on fonts.
Then we could replace, one by one, the ones from Puppy 107 with the ones from my dotpup.

It would be good to use a new pup001 for that with "mc" innstalled (Comandline-filemanager), as such operations can lead to a nonworking X.

OK, Mark, I'll do that but it will have to wait until tomorrow.

Happy New Year!

OK, this is as far as I got:
I started with a fresh pup001 and renamed these files in /usr/X11R6/lib/:

libX11.so.6 to libX11.so.6_BK
libXext.so.6 to libXext.so.6_BK
libXi.so.6 to libXi.so.6_BK

then copied the files from your xorg682c.pup in their place.

Restarted X, no difference - same problem with Beaver.

Those are the only library files your dotpup has that Beaver uses.

Now what? Exchanging one file for another would be quite a task: xorg682c.pup has ~413 font files - Puppy107 has ~110 font files...

N.B. I believe Puppy107 uses xorg681, while your dotpup uses xorg682

Just a thought seeing as there are 303 more font files in Mark's package that one of these maybe the font file you need to have the characters displayed properly in beaver.

Mark is there an easy to do this?

happy New Year.
