Hi Josepinto,

I compiled it, but I don't know what Puppy you use so it may not work. Let me know which Puppy you use and I'll try and compile it right for you.

Personally, I'd like it for a 4.3.1 hard drive install.

Hey, sorry guys, I had no luck getting it to work in 4.3.1 because it couldn't detect sqlite, even though it was installed on the system. I found this comic reader though,

http://www.fantastic.me.uk/comic.html

All it requires is java and you're good to go.

Set the run action to
Code:
java -jar


If you want to try the ComicMaster I compiled it's here but it most likely won't work.

Hi battleshooter,

I use Lucid Puppy 5.01. I will try the pet you compiled.

Another option is to compile Evince, which will get you a combined PDF, postscript, DjVu, and Comic reader. Fluppy has it, I think 2.14X has it, but I don't know if anyone's built it for other Puplets. If you use an older version of Evince, it'll compile without the need to update libpoppler.

Hi, I am the author of ComicMaster. Found this discussion via Google. Would have been easier you contacted me to help you solve installation problems, than talk here. Wink

I am always willing to help and also open for feature requests.

@battleshooter
When you have sqlite installed, but ComicMaster cannot find/use it, I suspect two possible problems.

1. Wrong version of sqlite (sqlite2?). Most unlikely.
2. You Qt libs are compiled without sqlite support.

I don't know what packaging system Puppy Linux uses. Some other distributions split Qt in several packages with one of them database support.

Oh hey man,

Thanks for dropping by. Sorry about not contacting you, it's just that the concept is completely foreign to me. When I try to compiling something and it doesn't work, I usually assume it's my fault, and just leave it. I wasn't saying ComicMaster was a bad program or anything, just that I couldn't make it available for Puppy so offered other solutions.

Thanks for the tips though, I'll take a look and give it another shot. I'll let you know how it goes too if you want.

Please do. Removing a crash bug is easy, fixing a flawed program flow, too. However, installation related problems are very hard for me. I am lacking experience in that area. Too many possible configurations/distributions, too few machines to test. Embarassed

Btw. you need the unrar/rar and/or unzip/zip binaries in your PATH.

Ok, I'd be glad to give it a go. Hopefully I'll have time this weekend.

yes 2.14x has evince, I forget if I included the comic plugin, hmmm anyone have a comic link where I can test it?
I came across ghunter which says its a comic viewer, but I can't see it because its sooooo small of a app.

There's also a shareware ($10 to buy) app, that works out of the box, it only has a nag screen and never runs out of share time.
http://www.radicalbreeze.com/radicalcomic/RadicalCodex.tar.gz
just extract it and click on /RadicalCodexTar/radicalcodex
its actually very nice app.

If you do, best use this snapshot from sourceforge:

http://comicmaster.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb.cgi?p=comicmaster/comicmaster;a=snapshot;h=01d5ee9f12b56e3ef4be805fe9e8fd5ab38b9c6f;sf=tgz

Several bugs fixed and the control window opens much faster. I also added a few command options, e.g. ComicMaster -f <cbr/cbz> to open a cbr/cbz file directly. This way cbr/cbz files can be associated with ComicMaster in the midnight commander.

Hi Kumosan,

How does link you gave me compile, by qmake in the src directory or cmake . in the main folder?
