video worked great. But I don\t know which driver it made use of.

It did not take Swedish despite me told it to. I reported this about the 000 too.


Hey Nooby, did that mean that the video behaved properly when it had been choppy? it is not using the lowest common denominator vesa drivers, but it is using the good dri/glx drivers. You can open a terminal and type 'glxgears' to confirm (hopefully) that DRI/GLX is working.

Yes, the Locale chooser was not working. We are very hopeful that it will all be good in 010. I just did a test myself in Argentine Spanish.

Hi James C, I swear I thought I had tested that it would have worked as you described. But that was a half-way kind of kludge and we are going the full monte in 010 Wink

changed to gprs connection from open wifi signal which was routed through china IP address (proxy blocking wget connections?).
now get this:

Ok, maybe the china thing was borking it somehow.

In quickpet there is a loop that grabs the file info first, that may be too fast for a slow connection, I can slow it down somewhat. That may fix the issue.

Thanks for report.

it show the graphics good and the streaming videos on cnn too.

But when I scroll using the mouse dragging the vertical bar then the screen split up in many many horisontal parts. Very annoying.

it also place the whole screen 5 mm to the left compared to quirky 013

Edit: forgot to comment on this:

My english fails to get grammar properly in that text.

1. Maybe you refer to horizontal split up. I don't remember.
2. if you mean if the choppyness goes away if one choose Vesa instead of Xorg.
Yes it does

What else could you refer to? I don't know!

opera 10.2 installed - no problems
pwidgets installed no problem
glxgears works fine here too.
dri is active

only problem I have is with gxine

Re: Lupu 009

Video card is ATI Radeon 3450

This got configured automatically on first boot, but German DE keyboard didn't get recognised. I know this problem has already been discovered, so just confirming that it's also the case here with this hardware combination.

There's apparently also a problem with CUPS 1.4.2 in Lupu 009.
My Brother DCP-7030 printer/scanner gets configured perfectly using the OEM Brother drivers, but nevertheless CUPS won't print a test page. It starts the job OK but hangs with a message "File might not be a PDF Type" ?????. Never seen this before in CUPS. I can print perfectly from earlier versions of Lupu and also from Quirky 018.

Something missing to do with CUPS in the Woof pet packages maybe? Anyone else seen this problem?

I'll start up Lupu 009 again later today and play further with it.

I like the new Quickpet idea. It's not actually downloading for me as yet, but I imagine that'll get sorted out at some point before the final release.

Otherwise cool.

Sub_title: printing problem
 

Can confirm tronkel's printing problems here too. That is, CUPS is unable to print to my Canon MP640 in lupu 007, 008 and 009. I still use lupu006 because it has CUPS 1.42 which prints just fine. The latter lupus have CUPS 1.43 and I have no idea why printing breaks down.

The printing problems with messages in /var/log/cups/error_log:
[Job 1] GPL Ghostscript 8.71: Can't find initialization file gs_init.ps.
[Job 1] Set job-printer-state-message to "May not be a PDF file (continuing anyway)", current level=ERROR

are caused by missing content of folder

@mories,@smil99

I have just installed Ghostscript via the Package Manager in Lupu 009 Alpha1.

Printing then works except for the inability to print a test page. For some reason this test page file itself is missing in this Lupu. So this is at least a temporary workaround.

I also managed to get my keyboard recognised by copying over my keyboard options into Lupu's basic xorg.conf from the xorg.conf in Quirky 018. It can sit at the bottom of the xorg.conf file. Again only a workaround.

It also might give playdayz a start on how to get rid of these two bugs.

Might be that the Ghostscript version in Lupu needs to be the Ubuntu version rather than the version included in Woof at the moment. Seems that way anyway.

Good detective work from mories. Kudos!

PostPosted: Sat 24 Apr 2010, 07:16    Post_subject:  Sound & font size  

Laughing First I have to say I love Lucid 009 very usable & gxine works (in all the other puplets I have tried it hasn't expect TeenPup).

Just using the live cd.

But to get the sound to work (on my Toshiba Satellite L30-101 laptop upgraded to 2Gb of ram) I had to plug in an external speaker (X-mini second generation).

& Whenever I tried to change the font size it would not save the changes.

This is my first time trying LucidPuppy--008 yesterday, 009 today. I like a lot of it: choice of browsers, quickpet, Sylpheed 2.7.1 as default e-mail manager, .PETs seem to install even faster than before, Puppy is not turning into Ubuntu, even though you can now install .deb packages from Ubuntu as easily as .PETs (so far as I can see).

Printing didn't work until I installed Ghostscript 8.6.4 from the Woof repository. I didn't know what category it would be in, and the new PPM doesn't have an "All" radiobutton, so I had to go to ibiblio.org with the browser and download it. Lupu 010, I think, must have Ghostscript included, and the test page problem fixed--please!!

My only other big problem so far is screen resolution with Xorg in 009 (it was fine in 008). In 009, I clicked "Setup X video" in Puppy Setup, and nothing happened. Same when I tried it from the menu. I don't want the resolution I automatically got, I want good old 1024 x 768 (fewer pixels, but bigger text and icons). How am I supposed to get it? I would really like to start using the Lucid Puppy pre-releases and give them a thorough test, but I'm going to use Puppy 4.3.1 with the screen resolution I like, rather than lupu 009 with the one I don't.

I believe that Lucid Puppy 111, just posted, might have what you are looking for Wink
