yarddog and majorfoo, I don't know if I am just confusing with my suggestion, because I don't know how fuzzy CUPS/Brother is regarding drivers. I see from the driver selection, that the driver you chose is the only one using Foomatic, the others are CUPS+Gutenprint, so my 2¢: Try the next one on the list instead, and see if it works.

What is meaning of "Empty print file!" shown above beside printer name

It needs libpoppler3 from the lenny repo. Get it here.

Thanks for info. I have already removed the full install of dpup-485.
I will boot live cd, get libpoppler3 and see if this solves my problem.

The one I chose (Printer Driver: Brother HL-2040 Foomatic/hl1250 (recommended) was recommended choice when I set up printer. I changed to next entry in line CUPS+Gutenprint and still did not work.
I just downloaded libpoppler3 thatrcrsn51 suggested = it needs libpoppler3 from the lenny repo. Get it here.

Missing library: libical.so.0

Osmo complains that libical.so.0 is missing, and refuses to open.

I remember having to download it to my dpup4.84beta4 also, to get Osmo to work there, I got it from Lenny.

I tried to update the package repo in the PPM.

First of all, it ran for app. one hour, updating all 20 odd thousand package descriptions to puppy format.

Secondly, I suddenly have 19 different repos to choose from in the PPM now, with additions like debian-lenny-mainpre, or puppy-5-official, puppy-5-official1 or maybe puppy-5-official2.
This function is a mess. Don't try it.

Another function that is available in other puppys (5.2.5), is the one that lets you remove preinstalled packages. It is not very exact, I have to use a file finder to remove the remaining libs and confs, but I miss it in dpup anyway. Rumor has it that there is a very nice package in the latest Linux Mint, that does exactly that. In Debian there is also a command 'purge' in apt-get and aptitude, that remove conf-files and libs after de-installing a package.

dejan555, are you, or someone else, gathering all dpup4.85 (and 4.84beta4) bugs, missing packages and tips for future refinement? It would be nice to have a completely bug- and problem free dpup, using the 2.6.30.5 kernel. It's only a matter of polishing...

Uh, I'm not really taking notes but it could be collected.
I really don't have any clue about PPM, I hardly ever use it.
We need more devs for completely bug free release.

dejan555, yes, I guess we will never have a dpup meeting the demands from all kinds of machines or external attachments.

I thought more in the line of having at least all the pre-installed programs working as they should, like having the correct libs for Cups and Osmo to work, an Abiword not closing at a wim, all the wm and builtin functions functioning. I would like every clicked button to produce the result we expect! There has not been a single puppy release where everything has worked right 'out of the box', but it should be possible, don't you think?

.

no matter the puppy.if it isnt in the murga forum, the first place i look for things to install is by google search of debian repositories. download the deb and click it. Shocked

Same here, even before woof and deb support in ppm I used to manually download stuff from deb repos and dependencies and then undeb / deb2pet them or if it's large number of deps just undeb and merge all of them and make one package, that's how I made amarok sfs back on 4.x series from debs.

BTW, this one still work on dpup 485:
amarok-1.4.10-lite-dpup_484.sfs 33 MBs

Any plans for an dpup barebones?
That would be neat to have one.

I started working on a Debian Testing dpup, I need a good testing ground for new ideas I have.

If it's any good, I'll upload it and make some good packages you can use too.

New idea: make a barebones one from the start! Then maybe a sfs for standard apps that come with puppy and browser chooser? Laughing

Once I stripped 484's sfs down to about 112 MB but I removed almost all apps with only dillo as browser. It could be stripped further but didn't know what libs to remove.

Yep, that's the idea - I want a barebones dpup so I can build all apps using build scripts and make it a rolling-release, upgradeable Puppy by design.
