I saw that combo in the forum, but was not sure how to install xpupsay. Any walkthroughs available?

Many Thanks.

Hi to everybody!
Completely newbie, I hope this is the right place to post my problem:

I'm having problems with my wireless connection. I have lupu libre 5.2.8 installed. All works fine, but internet connection. I have a usb wireless connection, my notebook detect it with no problem, but somehow it cannot connect because, literally "DHCP client failed to negotiate with wireless network". I tried Frisbee and installed the right packages, but no success. Now the message is different, though: when I try to get a network profile, I am asked the ASCII or HEX key.And when I give the key there's a pop up with a message like "Set ASCII key failed" I'm pretty sure I introduced the right key (I tried four times just in case).
Anyone can help with that? Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

I have combined the 2 pets mentioned above into a single pet and whilst doing so have made the following small changes:
- changed the xpupsay image
- replaced the in-built ipinfo with a call to the system's ipinfo

I've tested it on wary5.3, racy5.3 and precise5.3.95 - i.e. all BarryK puppies that don't come with Frisbee OOTB.

[EDIT] Version 1 works on all of wary/racy/precise - Version 2 which is smaller uses the wpa_supplicant built into Precise and works on Precise only.

[EDIT 2]Slightly amended Version 2 for Precise uploaded 140912 following feedback.

[EDIT 3]Also tested on Wary5.4Beta and Racy5.4Beta 280912

Cheers

the /usr/local/sbin/wpa_supplicant symlink in version 2 points to /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant. However in Pecise the wpa_supplicant is in /sbin. Thus the pet fails. Correcting that works as advertised Wink

Hi Mavrothal

Thanks for reporting that - strangely it works for me.

It maybe that I don't know how to include a symlink in a pet correctly - I wonder if there is a howto somewhere??

Try it in a *clean* Precise install.
Regarding symlinking "ln -sf /sbin/wpa_supplicant /usr/local/sbin/wpa_supplicant" worked for me.

This can only been done with a pinstall.sh script . read the /usr/local/petget scripts how they are used [ /usr/local/petget/installpkg.sh ] . petget would run a pinstall.sh script after it had installed the pet . in this pinstall.sh script you can put something like

Code:
#!/bin/sh
if test -x /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant ; then
ln -s /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant /usr/local/sbin/wpa_supplicant
elif test -x /sbin/wpa_supplicant ; then
ln -s /sbin/wpa_supplicant /usr/local/sbin/wpa_supplicant
else xmessage -bg red "WARNING:wpa_supplicant bin or script not installed"
fi


and probably use VAR=`which wpa_supplicant` in case next Puppy has it in /usr/bin .

There is also a possibility for a puninstall.sh .
Unfortunately a pre-install.sh possibility is missing .

PostPosted: Fri 14 Sep 2012, 03:36    Post subject: New Precise version  

Thanks Mavrothal & Karl Godt

I've amended the pinstall with your suggestion (there was already a ln command there) but more importantly I've removed the symlink that I had left in the /usr/local/sbin directory....

I've uploaded the new version.

Thanks for your help & feedback

Cheers
peebee

PostPosted: Thu 25 Oct 2012, 18:49    Post subject: Frisbee-tray and eth0 activity information  

I run frugal installs from USB/SD flashdrives and eth0 networking on this box. Carolina002 found eth0 OOTB. connected with Frisbee and runs great in the auto-DHCP mode. However, Frisbee-tray shows two white monitor that do not blink nor do stats show in the mouse over tool-tip box. Increasing the sleep time in startup/frisbee-tray has no effect. Saves and reboots have no effect. Frisbee works and displays properly in wifi mode and eth0 works and displays properly when set up thru the network wizard.

Come to think of it, I'm not sure that Frisbee-tray indicators have worked correctly with eth0 in Fluppy or other pups ... I usually run IceWM and use the built-in net monitor. Been trying XFCE and Open-box lately so it would be great if Frisbee-tray indicators worked with eth0. Thanks .... KJ

FYI ... Frisbee-tray icon does not indicate eth0 Tx and RX activity in Fluppy12 and 13, Saluki23, and Carolina002. Wlan connection indicator icons work correctly. Tested on an Acer aspire 5570Z and an EeePC 1005HA. Eth0 and Wlan connect and work great on both PC's. Thanks .... KJ

Hi KJ

Frisbee shows eth1 activity OK for me in slacko 5.3.3 - on my desktop that only has an ethernet connection - no wifi.

Maybe its something to do with your eth driver? Can you report which is being used?

Cheers
