Hi

I have read a couple of posts about XnView not working on certain Puppy versions,
for instance:
This one: Quirky 1.2rc feedback by pri
And this one: With regard to Stardust 013 by mawebb88
@ mawebb88, please accept my apologies for not responding earlier, but i only came across it yesterday. (yes, i'm slack Rolling Eyes )


Anyways, i think i have found a solution.

I tested using the following Puppy versions:
    Lupu-511
    Quirky-1.3
    Stardust-013
    Wary-070


    And XnView failed to run in all of them.

All of my testing was done using the XnView-1.70-version4.00.pet As posted here

This is how i got XnView working:

    Step 1.
    Download the attached archive fonts-for-xnview.tar.gz and unpack it somewhere,
    then copy the two fonts into the relevant directory:

      Lupu-511: /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc
      Quirky-1.3: /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc
      Stardust-013: /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc
      Wary-070: /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc

      NOTE:
      These fonts were taken from Puppy-432,
      but could just as easily have been taken from 431 (or maybe even earlier versions).

      So if you happen to require any others, you know where to get them. Wink


    Step 2.
    Open a console/terminal in the misc fonts directory (as indicated above),
    then enter the following commands (one at a time):

    Code:
    mkfontscale

    Code:
    mkfontdir


    Then Restart X Server

You can now install XnView,
or if it is already installed it should now work without crashing.

Hope this helps
