PostPosted: Wed 09 Mar 2011, 17:10    Post subject: digikam -showfoto sfs works  

1. The digikam / Showfoto sfs works for the most part although for some reason digikam will not show image files in collection (known bug in several versions if it is searched for) , but showfoto will. Honestly I use showphoto more so it was still helpful.

I tired to do various tweaks with related lib files for the digikam issue and they seemed to revolve around kioslave issues.

2. As far as wireless-->


I did this:

extracted tar

Code:
make

make install


so all of that was taken care of so I would think that

1. install pet
2. depmod-FULL -a
3. Bootmanager add module
4. reboot

I have attempted to bring up wlan0 before a reboot, but frisbee has issues loading it in to wireless (shows extension, but will not show essids). Rebooting fixes this.

Also, Frisbee works with this in getting an ip. The other net tools seem unable to do this.

Subject description: Dell laptop tapping
 

Somewhere between 5.02 and 5.03, I lost my touchpad control and tapping on several Dell laptops with both Synaptics and Alps touch pads.
The fix is simple but you may need to hook up a USB mouse to do it.

Go to PupControl | Hardware | Touchpad to run flSynclient
Make sure Touchpad Mode is ON
Check Palm Detect.
You might want to adjust Touch Sensitivity > 14.
Then go to the Tapping tab.
Set One Finger to left button
Adjust Tap Time to 225
Adjust Double Tap Time to 100.
Go back to the General Tab and click Save.
Your settings will probably be different but can be fine tuned from these values.

Also, on 2 machines, if I clicked on Calibrate on the General tab, I was dumped to the black screen command prompt.
Just type xwin and try again without using Calibrate.
Things seemed to self calibrate once I got the touchpad working.

Hi TazOC,
I've got a couple of quirks with 503:

I tried the Frisbee for connecting to my wireless but I want to go back to using your "WirelessConnect" (it's faster). So I enabled it in Startup and KDE Autostart.
But now they both seem to be active. How do I stop Frisbee?

I only want to mount a couple of the partitions on my drive so I enabled Startmount.
Now every boot brings up this window. How can I stop it displaying each boot?

Very Happy Hello
@helio58,
Menu / Setup / Puppy Universal Installer....

@Tazoc..
Still testing, but BRILLIANT as usual...
High expectations, and I`m sure, amazing results...
SFS`s at boot... Cool

The main Puppy lineage would do well to emulate some of your work...Just my opinion..... Rolling Eyes

PET files are different than SFS Files. PET files are similar to Program Installation files in windows. In order for them to load, you have to double click them. Then that will install the program and it will be available from that point on.

Yes, I've fixed the digiKam bugs with an updated libgomp which is in the the LHP_5.03G-update-1.pet (see next post.) and an updated SFS: http://lhpup.org/sfs/503/DigiKam-1.2.0-i486-L2.sfs. It requires the update-1 Pet, Mariner SFS and KDE SFS.

That's great news and helpful feedback, thank you!

Hi Barburo,
OK, I've updated ConnectWireless for Frisbee and other recent network updates, and included it in the 5.03 update-1 Pet, (see next post.) It will start during boot up instead of Frisbee, if ConnectWireless is added to /etc/rc.d/rc.local and the WEP parameters are pasted into the script, as described in the comments at the beginnning of /usr/local/bin/ConnectWireless. It is a bit faster than Frisbee, but ConnectWireless is only for a WEP WiFi connection, (so far doesn't work with WPA2) it cannot roam between profiles and is less reliable than Frisbee because it does not automatically reconnect--if the carrier is lost, after the initial connection succeeds. If you are only using one strong and reliable WEP connection, then ConnectWireless might be useful.

Open start-mount.sh in /Startup (/Autostart for KDE) with a text editor and comment out the last line like this
Code:
#gtkdialog3 -p SPLASH ; unset SPLASH;exit

@punkman,
Hello and welcome to the forum! Yes, the Pets in the Mariner ISO /pets folder are not installed automatically. Just click on the CD/DVD drive desktop icon, (usually sr0) or, if the CD isn't handy, click on the Mariner ISO file in ROX-Filer to mount it. Then click on the pets folder and left click on a Pet to install it.

PostPosted: Sat 12 Mar 2011, 17:15    Post subject: LHP_5.03G-update-1.pet
Subject description: Update 1 for Lighthouse Pup 5.03
 

Attached below is Update-1 for Lighthouse 5.03.
It contains the following bug fixes:

cupsview (CUPS printing web interface)

BootManager: Manage system services

BootManager: SFS Boot Settings

frugal-symlink (Move and Link Programs)

GCC OpenMP (GOMP) support library (for digiKam)

ConnectWireless (alternative to Frisbee for WEP connections)

ROX context menus for various text file types

CdKase themes (KDE desktop applet)

stripul and stripub (for developers, see /usr/local/LHPdev after installing)

This Pet updates the script ConnectWireless, but Frisbee still connects by default unless you have added ConnectWireless to /etc/rc.d/rc.local. (See previous post.)

I've also compiled GKrellM 2.3.5 in LHP and patched GKrellKam 2.0.0 to improve the image watcher / web cam plug in. This Pet should work with any Lighthouse. For a nice working Lighthouse web cam, add the new default,
Code:
http://live.novascotiawebcams.com/peggyscove/current.jpg
to the image source box in the GKrellKam plug in panel configuration dialog. The old one in Mariner, Cape Hatteras, http://pinpoint.ecu.edu/cameras/hatcam.jpg is down and this Pet may replace it with Peggy's Cove Lighthouse.

A source package for both is attached as well, in case you wish to compile them yourself.

Thanks for answering guys. Another question- How do I change which sfs files to load automatically? The flash sfs is not loaded by default, but I feel it would be very easy if it was loaded by default. So I have kept it in my pendrive . But at every live boot it asks for configuration if I want to load it. How is it possible to add it to automatic options?

PostPosted: Sun 13 Mar 2011, 10:05    Post subject: Internet connection via Puppy Network Interface
Subject description: First connection to ADSL
 

@fxjudy:
Hi and welcome to Lighthouse Puppy world.
I usually connect via Network or Wireless LAN (Puppy) the first time I am trying a new or unknown connection.
It is the smaller button right below the large Frisbee button on the Internet Connection Wizard screen reached through the Connect icon.

Are you connecting via wire or wirelessly?
Do you have a router, either separate or part of your ADSL modem?
Is it supplying DHCP addresses?
If fixed addressing, the address range will have been given to you by your provider.
It should also have DNS servers listed.
If not, try 8.8.8.8 which is Google's DNS server.

Failing that, I have had luck watching the pop up messages to see what connections the wizard is trying to connect to.
Then I try the Static IP option like this (these are dummy addresses):
IP address: 69.123.45.140
Subnet: 255.255.255.248
Gateway: 69.123.45.140 (same as the IP address)

After the initial connection is made, Frisbee seems to work well.
Good luck.

PostPosted: Sun 13 Mar 2011, 12:57    Post subject: Latest LightHouse LiveDVD with SFS processing  

@TazOC
You opened a dialogue with me last summer, I believe, as you helped me in understanding a little about the LIveDVD boot process.

Since then, I have witnessed you structure the LiveDVD boot process in such a way as it far exceeds the older way of Puppy LiveDVD processing.

In my review, please confirm if my look at this process is accurate and meets your approval of my description.

It appears, to me, that you took a step back, reviewed the Puppy boot process, and built a smooth operational approach to LIghtHouse's LiveCD which addresses
  1. Initial boot supporting Mariner
  2. consistent operations after initial boot setup
LiveCD Initial Boot
You have incorporated a new feature allowing any SFS that is contained on the LiveCD to be a part of the booting system such that when the user arrives at desktop, the RAM based system has all of the additional applications to round out his system and the user's needs.

Consistent LiveDVD operations.
Once booted, configured, tailored, and tested, when the user reboots/poweroff, the session save function has been expanded in such a way that all of the additions are enclosed within save-session where on LiveDVD reboot, all elements present before shutdown come back to life in the running desktop system without the user needing to do anything.

If this is accurate, this is a marked advancement in your implementation compared to other PUPs in the arsenal. Reason2: (last point first) In the past for many PUPs, I have witnessed that if the users tailors his system with "too much", the save-session step will not work properly or on reboot, the processing of the LiveDVD's save-session will abort or panic. Reason1: No other PUP has made it as obvious and as simple to understand what one is doing at LightHouse startup.

This is a significant advancement in LiveDVD processing in the Puppy world. Further, if this is true, you MAY want to open a forum thread that, just, discusses the particulars of this accomplishment for it has far reaching implications to both developers and users in this community.

Hope I described this accurately.

Thanks again for your work.
