PostPosted: Thu 03 Mar 2011, 18:11    Post subject: Newer versions of bundled apps  

Some of the apps that are bundled with Luci 252 have had newer versions posted on the forum. Grub4Dos Config (Forum thread) is now version 1.7, which fixes a number of bugs and also adds support for ReiserFS. I've been testing it on the K6 machine in 511 and 520 since it came out and it seems rock solid. I think it should certainly be in.

Other newer versions for that you may want to include are Pburn 3.3.3, Pmusic 1.6.4, Pfind 4.21 and Pwidgets 2.3.4.

There's also a 3.34.62 version of MtPaint that fixed "a bug in the blend mode that causes a crash that existed since version 3.34.29". It seems to be very stable. I got it from this post in one of the old Luci threads but the file it links to appears to have gone.

PostPosted: Thu 03 Mar 2011, 18:17    Post subject: 252 on my previously half dead deskpro
Subject description: Surprised the pc works at all
 

I've tried loads of distros (fedora, mint, ubuntu, debian, gOS etc.) on my old deskpro EN small form with 10.2 Fuji hdd / 256mb RAM. None of them worked at all which is how I came to discover puppy, it runs 4.2 really well from a 1.8G Sandisk USB drive. I used GParted to try and get the hdd in use, it still won't allow mint to install, no problem as puppy 4.2 does all I need. I fancied something a bit snappier so I ran wary. It worked ok but the red box thing in the task bar would fill up in no time and crash, so I stayed with 4.2. Then I tried Lupu, looked good at first but my graphics card couldn't seem to handle much and it was really messy trying to browse the net.

I tried Lucid 252 out of curiosity, and so far it runs better than 4.2 did. The Firefox options were very helpful, could never get firefox to run on 4.2. Better sound/vid on 252 from you tube and internet radio running in firefox but I haven't managed to adjust the volume from the icon in the task bar yet (same problem with 4.2 and wary - maybe my pc's fault and it doesn't matter anyway).

The only things I didn't like; system crashed when I first installed firefox while running from the live cd, worked fine once I installed, and I can't see the clock in the taskbar with the New England Mist wallpaper, dark numbers against a dark background. Again not important, just thought someone might want the feedback.

A big plus, running 252 once installed was the first time I've heard my hdd working for ages, even 4.2 didn't seem to want to use it. Again this wasn't a huge problem as it worked fine from the usb drive, but it seems like a good idea to make use of the extra 10.2G.

Thanks to everyone who made this happen, I think I've found the best distro for my 12+ year old pc. Smile

Ah... but once woof strips out the doc and man pages the compressed size should end up the size of the pet I posted.. or you can use that pet, either way.

ttuuxxx,

I do not know if it is me, but I installed your newer version of Abiword and it will not run.
Yes, I installed all 4 pets.
Click on desktop icon nothing.
Click on menu entry nothing.
Find the Abiword exe file nothing.
It all looks like it installed by looking in Rox.

I have found a new word processor.
It is a sheet of white papaer and a writing stick.
instant auto save and display.

hi you probably would need the latest Goffice and Gsf that I compiled for Gnumeric. So they all the newer match resources.

PostPosted: Thu 03 Mar 2011, 18:53    Post subject: Openshot-1.3 is out  

Hi playdayz,
Openshot-1.3 is out and it works great in luci252 after I made a couple of modifications to some of the .py files. This new pet does not contain any of the multimedia libs as in openshot-1.2.2 since luci252 has newer ones (from natty). Also, there were two extra python modules needed, PIL and httplib2, and I have added them to the python2.6.
3D titles also works if you have Blender256 (or newer) installed.

Anyway, check it out here:
Openshot-1.3

Cheers.

We call those writing sticks "universal character generators". Smile

Yes that did it. Your newer version of Abiword now works.

ttuuxxx,

So far with your newer version of Abiword I have been able to produce doccuments that can be saved and then reopened.
I have only tried simple stuff, so will test more.
May have been something missing in Luci 252 version of Abiword.
I just did it to myself by saying that. More testing to follow.
Sure glade playdayz has nothing to do for the next week!

Abiword 2.9.0 is the unstable development branch of Abiword. Abisource recommends that the stable 2.8.6 branch be used for production purposes.

I think we should stay with 2.8.6 which we know is working (reasonably) well.

Thanks.

That was yours. I don't know what I was talking about. Yours is about half the size of the others I found. So it is already in there! And working. Thanks.

There is a program Menu -> Desktop Settings -> PupClockset to change the color and size of the clock.

We should have a lottery to see how many times zigbert will update something before we release Lucid 5.2.1 Wink

Thanks Jades. Perhaps you could try the gparted-0.8.0 I posted above on this page and see if it works on the K6. It might because it is a i486 from slackware.
