Playdaz,
Bugs already reported for Lupu 525, but fix is only partial.

Here's a proof:

Setting up the test:
1/ Have a fresh lupu 525 install, install python, then OpenShot 1.3
2/ Save Lupu and reboot and see that OpenShot launchs correctly.
3/ Create a folder or a file name with non-english characters, such as sda4/privé/éçàè.doc

Now, the tests:
4/ Go in setup > country.
Change country setting "English, US" to "fr Français" and click OK.
Then by default Lupu 525 proposes "fr_FR Français, FRANCE" it will still work with this.
Now when you change to "fr_BE@euro" and reboot X Lupu 525 get mess up.

5.1/ First notice, that in document>document publishing.
AbiWord help menu is in English, while the exe menu is in French ( this was the indecator I gave for Lupu 253)

5.2/ Try to launch OpenShot 1.3 and see that now it crashes, change the country setting back to "English, US" and it works.

5.3/ Non-english char bug.

5.3.1/ Have a folder or a file name with non-english character such as sda4/privé/éçàè.doc either on a FAT or NTFS partition.

5.3.2/ Try to open it with another application than ROX, I tested with Thunar, LibreOffice, Iron, FireFox, Geany and you'll see that non-english character are replaced with wild chars, and you can't open the file from the application itself. For instance, can't open file from AbiWord.

5.3.3/ Strangely only through ROX does it works !

When it'll be fixed, I'll report other bugs.


P.S. Sorry if I take time to reply, but I'm in 3 critical & urgent cases, including my son in intensive care.

Having made some unfructuous attempts to install python on puppies other than 4.1.2 or 4.20, I believe success is unpredictable with existing python pets on later puppies, as far as I know. I cannot help you any farter about python.

My experience on lupu-525: 1) please read through forum thread here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=64088
2) first install Francais-rightclick-.4.x.pet
http://www.datafilehost.com/download-46637a28.html
and lang_pack_fr-lupq-0.2.pet
http://182.164.211.204/puppy/lupq/opt/languages/
3)afterwards, select fr_BE instead of fr_BE@euro, and left the UTF-8 checkbox unchecked (I cannot explain why it works so ...)
then after reboot (frugal install), you will get the menu and "main" applications (i.e. Abiword, Gnumeric, and some others ... NOT ALL ! ) with french menus.
Hope the best...
Cheers, Charlie

Precisely, I know how to work around, but bugs exist to enhance our knowledge and are they to be fixed.

I believe there is some deeper flaw into this.
