I must be missing something then because I downloaded the Libre Office sfs from Quickpet and it has placed it on the /mnt/home partition and loaded it as an sfs.No conversion to a .pet.,which is what I really needed.

Test 1:
Booted using lupu 528 pfix=ram...
Been using the Instant Update 001 (7 sep) for Lucid 5.2.8 for 2 days : 528 is still running very well for me.
Test 2:
I updated several old lupu and luci (for the fun) :
Luci 258, Luci 268, Luci 626 without any big problem (localization FR by Shinobar, passwords, Seamonkey and Flash etc... are OK)
Thanks.

Quickpet handles SFS files depending on how Puppy is installed.
Frugal install- SFS file is downloaded to /mnt/home. A menu entry is made to launch the SFS file on demand.
The file stays an SFS file located in /mnt/home.

Full install- The SFS file is downloaded, turned into a pet, and installed as a pet normally is to a full install of Puppy.

I had trouble getting my HP PhotoSmart C5280 to print with CUPS and to be recognized
by xsane. I downloaded and installed 4 pets and now my Printer and scanner now works in both
Lucid 525 & 528.

I downloaded and installed the 4 pets from
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=58421
after reading about them on the Dpup: Squeeze Puppy 4.99.2 forum page
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=67988&start=60.

Thanks to sszindian, rcrsn51, lluamco, playdayz, and ttuuxx for their help
in getting this working.

-Bruce.

PostPosted: Fri 09 Sep 2011, 20:17    Post subject: mercurial tortoisehg inkscapelite mtpaint python e3 rox
Subject description: problems
 

Mercurial

Some repositories use the Mercurial system for downloading source code. Can this be added to devx?

http://mercurial.selenic.com/

Also "tortoisehg" which is the gui front end of mercurial:

http://tortoisehg.bitbucket.org/

Both mercurial and tortoisehg are available in puppy package manager but neither seem to work. It uses python/ python dependencies...

Which leads to my next subject...python...

------------------------------------------------------------

Python

It seems that python, python apps and python dependancies from ubuntu repos don't work in puppy. (at least the ones I tested). Test for yourself, in the package manager search for: "python-" and "py" (without quotes).

------------------------------------------------------
Inkscape lite:

Also I noticed that inkscape lite refuses to print from the print menu.
This is an old bug that keeps sneaking in.

------------------------------------------------------
MtPaint:

MtPaint also won't print by default because the printer settings are set to
"kprinter %f" which doesn't exist in puppy.

Mtpaint > file > actions > Configure > Print Image

It should be set to "lpr %f"

Then the printer works.

---------------------------------------------------------
e3

When using e3 text editor with roxterm, i can't display the e3 help with alt+h because that opens the roxterm help.

------------------------------------------------------------

Rox Filer:

When I try to change the Rox icon thems in rox options nothing happens.

Within a rox window, right click, options... Types > Icon Theme

I selected gnome, hicolor, ROX and tango, then restarted rox, but nothing changes.

The other day I managed to change the rox icon themes (somehow) by messing with the desktop themes but I can't remember how I did it.

If you want greater control over printing from mtPaint, link it to PeasyPrint.

This worked for me.

1. Use "lpstat -v" to get the name of the print queue.
2. In the Print Destination box, delete the "lp".
3. Paste in the name of the print queue.

OR

Code:
 | pstopnm | pnmtopng > out.png; peasyprint out.png

OK I definitely have a working printer because I just printed an image with mtpaint and it printed fine.

But this inkscape lite is being difficult. The results of lpstat -v

device for CUPS-PDF: pdf-writer:/export/share/pdf/
device for HP_psc_1200_series: usb://HP/psc%201200%20series?serial=MY42AG73JB5H
device for pdf_writer: pdf-writer:/dev/null

In the inkscape lite printer dialogue box I entered:
HP_psc_1200_series

Then i clicked "Print" and it printed, but it was all messed up.
Any ideas?
