Any chance of a .pet of this now-working 2.6.8 AbiWord PlayDayz? One that would install over the existing AbiWord in both Lucid-528-004 and 3HD perchance? ( The latter would be an excellent bonus seeing that the wife uses the former whilst I the latter. Wink )

TIA!

Cheers/Amicalement,

Eyes-Only

You bet Eyes-Only. Later today I hope, at least for testing.
Here it is Abiword-2.8.6-Lucid-2 with working Help > http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/Abiword-2.8.6-Lucid-2.pet
Please test the Help of course, plus handling docx files if possible, plus Gnumeric (because there is a new goffice which Gnumeric also uses). Also please test the default save format which is now "opendocument (odt)" which is the same as LibreOffice. This Abiword has been tested in Lucid and 3HD--it may work in other Puppies. Thanks.

Yes radky. I think I might do a quick update of Lucid Plus, with that fixed and the new Abiword with Help, and anything else that turns up, in a few days.

I have abiword 2.9.1 in slacko 530 and it saves in abw , doc, or html... [help/updates/bug reporting doesn't work]


Aitch, I have let 01micko know that there is a way to get the help working and will send him the details--Abiword needs to be recompiled for it to take effect. Concerning the save format--what I am planning to do is to change the *default* save format from abw to probably odt or rtf--all of the others will continue to be available and it will be possible for the user to change the default format back to abw or to any of the others. odt is the opendocument format that LibreOffice uses. I think that using odt might "modernize" Abiword a bit.

PostPosted: Sat 24 Mar 2012, 13:21    Post subject: Puppy-Linux-Lupu-528-Testing01a - Internet Connection
Subject description: Huawei E353 Mobile USB-Modem Wireless Connection
 

I have recently received a new modem from my mobile internet provider, who have just upgraded their network to HSPA+. The details are:
Huawei HSPA+ Mobile USB Modem, Model No. E353s-6.
Vendor ID: 12d1
Product ID: 14fe, (all from lsusb)
Target Product ID: 1506
I tried to use it in Puppy-Linux Lupu 528.004, but it failed to connect and gave me the message:
# /usr/sbin/ppd : In the file /etc/ppp/peers/gprsmm: unrecognised option ' dev/ttyS0 ', (In the configuration window I had entered the detected device file:
"/dev/ttyUSB0/ dev/usb/ttyUSB0 /dev/ttyS0" )
The modem seemed to have switched, because lsusb showed the Product ID: 1506.
I unplugged/replugged the modem and tried to connect again, but got the same result.
From my superficial knowledge of this matter, I suspect that this modem is not registered in the modeswitch list, which might be the cause of this problem.
Consequently, I have been following the forum postings on this subject with great interest and have now tested this modem in Puppy-Linux Lupu-528-Testing01a,
but got exactly the same result.
I went to the modeswitch list file and found that 12d1 : 14fe is registered there, but NOT the Product Target ID 1506. (12d1 : 1505 is the nearest I could find).
So, I need some help at this point. Can someone please confirm that, to function, this modem needs to be registered in the modeswitch device list, or is
there some other problem that needs to be solved? If your response is "Yes" to registration, can I do it myself? If so, I am willing to try to accomplish it, but I
will need some instructions from an obliging expert, as I am not fluent in the editing of files.
To write this posting I am using this modem plugged into a Win7 box and it is functioning normally, which proves that my other configuration data is correct.
I will greatly appreciate any help that can be offered.

Yoliano, New hardware can be a problem for Lucid, since it is somewhat old. You might try Lucid Plus from page 91 top or Three-Headed Dog which has a newer kernel. Otherwise you could be better off with Slacko, which is newer.

Initial testing is OK with basic .odt and standard .doc files (I don’t use the Microsoft .docx format). Yes, all Help options are now accessible in the Abiword menu. Thank you playdayz, and thanks to the Abiword developers who provided the patch for Help resources.

For those who must use Microsoft Office, .odt won't work with it. Almost everybody can work in .rtf. Just a consideration....

I just tested and Abiword opened a docx that had been created in Word and then saved it as odt. Then Word 2010 opened the odt and saved it as another odt and then reopened it. The document had a picture and a table so I think it was a decent test. I hope people will test this.

Here is the Native Language Support for the new Abiword 2.8.6 http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/Abiword_NLS-2.8.6-Lucid-2.pet

By the way, Abiword 2.8.6 is still the official stable release of Abiword, plus the developmental release 2.9.2 won't compile in Lucid, which is why we have 2.8.6. There is a 2.9.0 that ttuuxxx built for Lucid in the PPM--it was not included in Lucid because at that time the Abiword developers said that 2.8.6 was better with docx documents.

cthisbear, For the broadcom, you might try mvoing the usb plugs around, that is plugging the usb devices into different ports, because that can alter the timing and I suspect that sometimes the timing is the problem. You can also try the new broadcom driver that peebee made http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=611686#611686

New Abiword-2.8.6-Lucid-2 looks good with help installed.
Also, help now works in Gnumeric.

If user does not want to use the .odt extension, it is easily changed to different format in /usr/share/abiword/system.profile.

Thanks for enhancing these two programs

Abiword-2.8.6-Lucid-2 with working Help

Well it does not want to play nice with me.
Installed to Lucid 528-004 full install.
Help still shows nothing.
This install of Lucid is heavily tweaked and added to, so could be reason why not working.
I am going to try it on a clean, fresh install, of Lucid, and see what that does.
Tried it with a live CD, using option pfix=ram, with nothing but the install of Abiword-2.8.6-Lucid-2.
Selected help and Quickpet opened. I assume trying to tell me I needed a browser installed. Only browser I had at this time was Dillo.

Yes. Exactly. I am very puzzled why it didn't work on the first install. You could open a terminal and enter env and see what DEFAULTBROWSER shows. Hmmm, it might not work if you have changed the default browser since booting. You could also start abiword in a terminal and see if you got any messages when you clicked Help.

Help always worked in Gnumeric, I thought.

My bad - You are correct. Help works in Gnumeric in all of your lucid - luci series.

In the future I will check, before I make a comment.

@Playdayz
I probably misdirected a question on PPM to your PM. Would you check?
