How can I test that SSL support is working in 5.20 before I raise a problem to a site needing this (the site in question is gmail)

This is a good question. I hope someone can answer it. Entering 'ssl version' in a terminal shows that the programs are there and starting correctly, but that is not necessarily the same thing as "working."

The next version of luci-251 will have openssl 1.0 (unless something goes wrong) so it would be nice to be able to confirm correct operation.

I was just able to create and send and receive mail on a gmail account with the 251pre that will be luci-251 using sylpheed.

PostPosted: Thu 26 May 2011, 02:16    Post subject: *Retroval* fixed muted sound situation  

Sorry about the blank text window above.
Don't know what happened. Text was entered. When I went into to *edit* the text was blanked.

I will try again...just to clarify for the next reader.

I too had the issue of muted sound on Playdayz download of Lucid Puppy 520 (as shown in first entry of this thread).
I solved it by right clicking on the sound icon in the launch panel and choosing *full window*.
*full window* opened *retroval*.
I boosted the *speaker* volume.
Sound is working well now.

jrb made an sfs of Google Earth 6. The sfs is at the address above and there is also a pet now in the puppy-lucid repo of PPM in Lucid 5.2.5

The pet -> http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/Google_Earth-6.0.3.2197-lucid525.pet

Google Earth needs Xorg_High, ATI Catalyst or Nvidia graphics.

Subject description: ink level
 

I have installed lucid 520 and the printer (CUPS) installed is a EPSON stylus rx420. In the CUPS menu I find a function to clean the print heads (nice) but no function to read the cartridge ink levels. Does anyone know how to fix this ??

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I get a warning (low ink level) on the printer itself, but have no idea which cartridge it is....

Volhout,

Hello...You might have luck searching the forum for threads specific to CUPS and Epson and 'ink levels'.

Here is a forum thread relating to Epson and ink levels that might be helpful:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=61885

You can use *Google* for the search. And/or use the *search* feature of this forum. If you use *Google* be sure you put in 'Puppy Linux' somewhere.

PostPosted: Wed 15 Jun 2011, 12:29    Post subject: Abiword
Subject description: settings
 

I have 520 installed (full) and run Abiword as word processor.
I tried to set the language (Dutch) but it does not remember it. Every time I start it Abiword is in US english again.

Also..

I looked at the Abiword website to set the default save format to ".doc", and what I need to do is manually edit the system.profile (add DefaultSaveFormat=".doc"). But in the usr/share/abiword-2.8/ folder there are several profiles. I editted them all, and still Abiword does not use the .doc format as default.

It sounds to me that Abiword 2.8.6 is not configured right in Puppy 520.

Any thoughts ???

Is this a known bug ? Is it fixed in 525 ? (I am planning to upgrade anyway).

Volhout

--UPDATE-- Abiword (menu) language settings follow the Puppy language settings. Once I configured Puppy to Dutch, Abiword follows. But this does not resolve the problem with ".doc". And it does not allow to set the document language different from the language selected in Puppy.

AbiWord doesn't save in true ".doc" MS Word format.

http://www.abisource.com/wiki/Microsoft_Word_documents

If you wanting to go between Linux and MS Word I'd install OpenOffice/LibreOffice

http://puppylinux.org/wikka/LibreOffice


(Wine could be another option)

On my system, the .sfs version does not run because of a missing "libpulse.so.0", does anyone know how to get this?

hanzf, This might be it--it is libpulse anyway. LMMS is not really going to use pulse audio on Lucid, but it must have been compiled needing it. libpusle is in Three-headed Dog which is where I am now. so does lucid 5.2.8. You can look in /usr/lib and see if libpulse is already there. But if not, this pet will put it there.

LMMS is in Multimedia in PPM. Or should be Wink Possibly you would need to start Quickpet -> More Pets -> Update Lupu PPM

Thank you, that did it! Now I have "lmms 0.4.5common" installed.

Subject description: Sound Gone from 520 - No icon in panel. No Alsamixer active
 

Hello playdayz,

Lupu-520 has been running perfectly from a live CD for months now.
Yesterday she lost her sound.
Also, sound icon gone from panel.
Cannot initiate alsamixer from menu.
Cannot initiate alsamixer from user/bin.
I did a pfix=ram. negative.
I ran alsawizard twice. negative.
I've rebooted. negative.
The only thing I've been messing with is a Puppy Screensaver in it's various forms.

Here is my machine:
Zareason Big Lap
3 gigs RAM
(see screenshot ZaReasonSummary1)

Here is how I am running lupu-520:
Live CD with pup-save files on machine's hard drive.
Ubuntu 10.04 is resident on the hard drive.

Here is screenshot of *dmesg* immediately after running Alsawizard.
Here is screenshot of Sound Card Selection that Alsawizard sees.
(I choose hda-intel)

Thank you for any suggestions you have.

The reason for the blank post earlier was url bracketing errors, and a bad link to biglap, - I edited and quote

@Playdayz,

I have successfully downloaded lupu-520 and burned a Live CD (twice) using the download from your initial post.

Lupu-520 ->
http://tinyurl.com/6v72qxs

Both CD's have muted sound.
Both CD's have Firefox 3.6.13 installed.
How do I fix the muted sound situation?
Looks like the last post was back in 2010.
Has there been a permanent fix created since then?

Here is my machine configuration:
Zareason Big Lap
3 gigs RAM
More specs here:

Thank you in advance of your reply

For some reason the post below did not fully post.
I found the solution to the muted sound.


I found *Retroval* by right clicking on the sound icon in the panel tray.
In *Retroval* I set the speaker volume to a higher volume.

I also ran the alsawizard and set the sound card choice to match my sound card.

sorry it's a bit out of sequence Wink

Thank you, Aitch, for your response to my old post of May 2011.
I'm not sure how it relates to my current post, however.
