PostPosted: Mon 16 Jul 2012, 22:46    Post subject: missing opera libs  

Hi all, there has been a problem for a while about missing libs for flash player for Opera. Can't remember where, but there are a couple places here on the forum to download the .pet for this. Here it is, hope it helps.
Thanks, Rob

Thanks Oligin10, that did the trick - Opera is now perfect!
I installed the necessary items in this order:
Opera first (Right click desktop / Internet / Get Internet Apps),
Missing Libs pet second,
Flashplayer third (Right click desktop / Internet / Get Internet Apps).

Tman, this TINT2 puppy is awesome. This would now be my first recommendation for anyone with a PC of similar age to mine (about 10 years). To be honest I think I prefer the appearance and driveablity of TINT2 ahead of the full SolidPup. It is trim, tight and fast. Really nice job.

I heartily agree. I got used to running Tint2 on a 400mhz celeron with 192mb ram. But vnc and samba were asking too much from it so I changed to a 2.4ghz P4 with 768mb ram. And now it flies (relatively)!

As a sidenote, I've no idea why I get a better experience surfing the web through Seamonkey on Tint2 than on Wary 5.3. The browser felt strangely sluggish to user input when I was using Wary. That was 1 of the main reasons why I switched back to Tint2. Granted, I didn't try out other browsers to narrow the causes.

Hi all, just installed this. *Tint2 version* Manual frugal. Replaced default wary.

Not really sure what my first steps should be here.
A lot of the packages are out of date. Any tips on other apps to add?

I'm thinking that the iso could be even smaller if Thunar and Lxterminal weren't included.
For a very light copy/paste terminal, I usually use EvilVte.
I only ever use other file managers for symlinking and MC is good for that.

I'm also interested in why Links is never the default browser, it's faster and lighter then Dillo.

Sorry for the double post, Dillo froze on me.

So far I have installed QElectrotech and it is now working after I added a wary5 QT pet.

Then I added Scribus but still haven't found all the dependencies that are preventing it from running, and also tried the qupzilla you referred to in the Mage post but I haven't hit on the right libs that are missing for that either.

There's a lot I don't understand about how to identify if a particular lib is the correct one, even if it shares the same name as the one a program is asking for. So I'm stumbling around a bit while I educate myself about these matters.

I mainly use TINT2 as a means to get on the internet quickly and copy my files around. I'm also using it to trial the "load sfs-on-the-fly" function - to try and find out which office and browser sfs's work best.

@GreenGeek

I am using Qupzilla right now off Solid Pup.

I installed the QT4.8 package. The basic one is fine. Nothing needs to be fancy.

The newest Qupzilla.

Enjoy please Smile

SolidPup or still posting on SolidPupTINT2? Thanks

Also, the .pet you suggest for the QT libs - that is from Debian repos isn't it? I have been trying QT libs for W5 and one of Pemasus Lucid QT 4.8 pets. Am I doing the wrong thing?

You'd have to ask Pemasu about that.

...Are you installing both at the same time? I hope not.

There is a full .sfs buried somewhere in the Exprimo thread.

I was actually meaning to get on Lazypup and craft a new large QT.sfs which includes a lot of QT apps.

For small systems like Solid pup, I think that would be key.


I just crashed X again trying to install Smplayer on Solidpup. Time to delete the save file. Laughing

Of course! More is better , right?

Smile

OK, I will delete them both and try installing the same one you did.

That's more like it.

Do not install more then one version of the same library, that can cause breakage.

Except in cases like Python, because different versions of Python are completely different from each other.

Ok, thanks. The error I got from Scribus was something to do with "check if python is installed". I will get qupzilla and QElectrotech sorted first, then attack Scribus again later.

O.K, I deleted my wary5 version of QT, and Pemasu's Lucid 4.8 QT pet, and installed Pemasu's other one you have mentioned here instead, and now both Qupzilla and QElectrotech work well. Excellent.

Actually - I quite like Qupzilla - it is pretty fast. I guess some people would not find it pretty, but I favour good functionality over prettiness. It's good.

(One thing that I just noticed though - it doesn't seem to be displaying .jpg images that are embedded in this forum. PNGs display ok, but not the jpgs. Might be something temporary with the forum? Will check another browser)

I don't see why it would have problems displaying Jpegs.
Hopefully it won't be an issue.

Qupzilla 1.3.0 definitely not displaying jpegs. If I go to the first page of this topic and look at Tman's second post I cannot see the multicoloured screenshot that is normally there. And facebook is missing almost every image. PNGs display fine. Might have to try 1.3.1

EDIT:Still have the same problem in 1.3.1
