Shinobar has been delightfully active in fixing the pdf viewing and printing problem. Starting from here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=446619#446619

Looks really promising.

BTW, luci is brilliant!


Yes and there is a mini review in Distrowatch.
http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20100830#feature part of 3
Larry (Playdayz) wants to keep the name Lucid 'brand name' right into 5.2.
Even if we start using Maverick Meerkat binaries with 5.2.

Seems fine to me - so Luci can be the developer name
with a number based on the development version number

Luci 220 is the latest or just 220
but when the testing is done it will be released as Lucid 5.1.1
. . . and then later Lucid 5.2 work will begin

The Puppy News updates t(currently at 003)
are primarily for 5.1 users and are not the same as the Luci ISO which
contain more testing features for the release of 5.1.1

Ah one thing whilst I remember
I have two sound cards (internal and PCI board)
and I have to set this twice for it to take
Not sure why but just to mention.

We are Puppy.
Kats will be assimilated

Does anyone remember a problem with usb bootflash earlier in Lucid Puppy development? What I am trying to remember is what fixed it. Anyway, please test installing to a usb flash drive. I just did and installed to an ext2 filesystem on a usb flash drive and all was well. Thanks.

For two sound cards, even if one is usb, I have been using Audacious.

Audacious with multiple sound cards.
Boot fresh without doing anything special to sound config.
Open a terminal and enter 'alsamixer'.
In alsamixer press F6.
For me, both (actually all 3) sound cards show up on the alsamixer list.
I have found that if they show up on this list then Audacious will play through them.
Then I hit ESC to close alsamixer without doing anything else.
Install Audacious.
In Audacious, Menu, Preferences, Audio and the button Output plugin preferences
There is a long list. I have been picking the first listing for each card, called default and the name of the card.
Then I have to go back to alsamixer F6, choose the bottom card and then raise the volume,

Playdayz......... I just downloaded the latest, being a glutton for punishment, and read your comments about mistakes etc. Do you mind if I disagree? Linux is all about throwing something out there and expecting the community to help perfect it, EXACTLY the way it is with Lucid. Lucid is already far and away the most competent Puppy ever. If I wanted 'finished' I would use Mint (actually just deleted it, screw passwords).
Thanks for everything to all of you. Remember, its the Bazaar, NOT the Cathedral.

Now a minor fault at luci-220+CUPS-1.4.3+geany

somehow geany wouldn`t print page 1-9 , 10-19 and so on.
saying in the header being page 10 it was page 1

had to resize the lucisave-file because /var/spool/cups occupied 2 MB for each page !

cups at luci-219 and 220 seem to be equal.

also tried the epson simple printer driver Rolling Eyes

is there a link for the CUPS driver path ?

It has changed since 4.3 : /usr/share/cups/model/gutenprint/5.2 isn`t it anymore

Are you saying that the wrong pages were printed or that they were numbered incorrectly? Try printing the document with NicoEdit to see what happens.

Go to the CUPS web interface and see if there are some print jobs queued up. CUPS does like to leave some stuff in /var/spool/cups. You can make it auto-delete by adding these lines to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.
Code:
PreserveJobHistory No
PreserveJobFiles No

Then do a CUPS restart.

Does this mean that it worked or did not work?

The old CUPS 1.1.23 in Puppy 4.3 used that folder to create its collection of PPD files. New versions of CUPS do this on-the-fly and don't need a folder.

IIRC, this was only a problem when running syslinux (ie a USB install) from the Live CD. Once Puppy is installed, /tmp has the right permissions.

[Edit] I stand corrected. This is also a problem with full installs.

It wouldn't install ldlinux file from my full installs without it.

Now we need the shiny little ball back on the partition we're
running from.
