Thought other people might be interested in this success story.

Yesterday I was in the computer suite of our local community centre, trying to make a DVD backup of the files on my USB (pen) drive. The computers are about three years old and all but one run Windows 7; the other one runs XP.

I was on one of the Windows 7 machines but was unable to get Windows to recognise my pen drive no matter what I did. So, I booted up a CD of *Slacko 5.3.1 which I just happened to have with me ( Smile), and it recognised my pen drive and copied and burnt the files on it to my DVD with no problem at all.

So, Slacko 1, Windows 7 0. Smile

* I think it was the 64-bit version, but couldn't find a thread for it.

Sub_title: Slacko is really the best distro
 

Slacko is really the best distro : bonjour.
Its my opinion. Internet both wifi and ethernet are recognized and works well. Music works. Desk icons works,
Nothing fantastic in that, no, but the others fail at one moment in one of these points.
I work with Slacko, Safe distro !

'Slacko is really the best distro'

I can't argue with that.

I need some help, 'tho.
Is there a wxPython that works with PythonPlus 2.6.6?
I have a wx 2.8x that I tried, but I don't know enough about Python.

Please.

PostPosted: Wed 30 May 2012, 14:17    Post_subject: python + wxpython  

Hi,
Quote:
Is there a wxPython that works with PythonPlus 2.6.6?

do you need python+2.6.6?
can python+2.6.4 do?
if yes, then try this «all-in-one» pet (20MB - it has both Python and wxPython ! ) ON A PRISTINE Slacko SESSION (i.e. boot using pfix=ram) and restart X once installed: dowload Python+wx_strip_dpup_2.6.4.pet here
http://www.datafilehost.com/download-e3665b4a.html
Take attention that it contains both python2.6.4 and wxPython2.8.7.1: this wouldn't work if python is already installed The better is when there is no python present. Just get a try on a fresh pfix=ram pristine puppy session.
This is given without warranty. I can just say it works on dpup exprimo 5.X.3.2.14 and maybe others (note that exprimo comes without any python; my slacko5.3.1 has no pyhon either...so may works! )
No idea if it works on Slacko. Maybe some dependencies could still be missing.
To check it works, open a console, there type python, and you have to get this, entering «import gobject ... import wx» and pressing ENTER one at a time, without error message:
Code:
# python
Python 2.6.4 (r264:75706, Nov 19 2009, 02:54:25)
[GCC 4.2.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import gobject
>>> import gtk
>>> import glib
>>> import wx
>>> quit()
#

It has been stripped from some locales; are included:
de,fr,uk,fi,nl,es under /usr/share/locale
If more locales wanted then download 2- below, and extract the files under /usr/share/locale from it;

for information: details of that pet:
That «all-in-one» pet gatters
1- Python+_431.sfs from here
http://code.google.com/p/puppy-development/downloads/detail?name=Python%2B_431.sfs&can=2&q=
2- wxpython-2.8.7.1.pet from here
http://dotpups.de/puppy4/dotpups/Programming/wxpython-2.8.7.1.pet
whose /usr/lib/python2.5 has been renamed to /usr/lib/python2.6 - (this because wxPython2.8.7.1 is told to be even compatible with python 2.6.4) ;
3- added:
libmspack.so.0.1.0 + symlinks libmspack.so.0.1 and libmspack.so.0
libpng14.so.14.2.0 + symlink libpng14.so.14
libpython2.5.so.1.0 + symlink libpython2.5.so.1

hope this helps
Charlie

last edted:
- modified pet name as to avoid misunderstanding
- this pet does not contains pyalsa

Hi Charlie,

That .pet is a goer. The 2.6.4 doesn't seem to be an issue. No errors.

Now the problem is with serial and tkinter modules.
Both are there but don't load.

Elle me sauve la vie !
J'avais slacko 5.3 sur une clé USB, et pas conservé l'iso. J'ai cassé le Initrd.gz. J'ai installé SLACKO 5.3.1 et je retrouve Internet sur mon Medion.

Slacko runs on both my old Acer and my brand new Medion. This distro is the best. All the slackos are the best !
And i have tried a lot !

I am satisfied of myself. The first time this morning.

Dont change anything ! have a good day !

Tkinter (not tkinter ... Wink ) needs both /usr/lib/libtcl8.5.so and /usr/lib/libtk8.5.so to be extracter from
tcl-8.5.5-runtime.pet and tkl-8.5.5-runtime.pet
download here
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-4/
then you get
Code:
# python
Python 2.6.4 (r264:75706, Nov 19 2009, 02:54:25)
[GCC 4.2.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import Tkinter
>>> quit()

PostPosted: Sun 03 Jun 2012, 06:27    Post_subject: pyserial serial module for python  

kooliepup wrote:
... serial ...modules...but don't load.

to get this module installed and loaded
1- install the Python+_DEV-2.6.4-i486.pet from same URL as Python+-431.sfs (see my first post above)
2- download pyserial-2.6.tar.gz and extract it for instance under /
3- so you got a directory /pyserial-2.6; go inside it; there you find a setup.py file; right click on it and select properties; there check all the emplty boxes and close the dialog box; you will see that setup.py turns displayed to green Wink !
3.1- there go inside documentation and read pyserial.rst - paragraph Installation - to understand what happens ...
4- again in /pyserial-2.6, open a console; there type
Code:
# python setup.py install
then ENTER
let things be done ...cross fingers...comments are scrolling ...Shocked
Code:
..bla bli bla ...
...
byte-compiling /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/serial/__init__.py to __init__.pyc
byte-compiling /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/serial/serialcli.py to serialcli.pyc
running install_scripts
copying build/scripts-2.6/miniterm.py -> /usr/bin
changing mode of /usr/bin/miniterm.py to 755
running install_egg_info
Writing /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/pyserial-2.6-py2.6.egg-info
#

so far so good...pyseria-2.6l module is installed... Surprised
just check doing
Code:
# python
Python 2.6.4 (r264:75706, Nov 19 2009, 02:54:25)
[GCC 4.2.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import serial
>>> quit()
#

Jeeez.
I'm pretty sure that life wasn't meant to be this difficult.
Give me the address of the guy who wrote Python, and I'll send the boys around.

I think there is a rainy day coming up on Tuesday, so I may do this.
This may well be the last time I get screwed around by Python.
I seem to recall that it was something as hideous as this that was the last straw for me with Windows, back in '98.

Thank you for all your help.

Edit: Difficult was maybe the wrong word.

As someone who is into efficiency, the time-wasting associated with Python is unacceptable, and the antithesis of Puppy philosophy.
I am happy for people who have nothing better to do with their time than play with Python.

I have so many things that have higher priorities than developing, and if I had to rely on developing for an income I would starve.

I could be wrong here, but I believe Python may have been written by one of the guys who developed the ADA language. Wink
