PostPosted: Wed 04 Dec 2013, 23:46    Post_subject: gimp plugin registry link broken?  

When I go to Help --> Gimp Online --> Plug In Registry

I get two errors:

Quote:
Calling error for procedure 'plug-in-web-browser':
Operation not supported


and ...

Quote:
Execution error for 'Plug-in Registry':
Error: ( : 1) Procedure execution of plug-in-web-browser failed: Operation not supported


I need to add a watermark plugin.

Is this a known problem with the Linux 2.8.4 version used in LH64-602b2?

PostPosted: Fri 06 Dec 2013, 19:24    Post_subject: Convert .XCF to >JPG  

GIMP insists upon outputting a .XCF image file when a watermark is applied.

What is the most simple way in LH64 to convert a .XCF to a .JPG, please?

Is there a batch method?

Ubuntu help describes xcftools but that doesn't show up in the Slackware 64 repositories.

Thanks!

Only gimp will open an xcf file. There may be a script available on the gimp user forum for batch conversion???

PostPosted: Wed 11 Dec 2013, 17:55    Post_subject:  Need Help with monitor and chipset  

My friends computer is a Gateway NV78. I put lhp 445 on it long time ago.
She now wants to upgrade. However, when I load the LHP 64 602 the intel chipset sets the monitor to off.
Is there a fix someone could help me with so It will work like the old version of lighthouse to set the monitor to on?

By the way I am in LHP 445 now and it works fine.


She is not a geek. I am hoping for a fix that will stick. Or a file that I can add to the
start up and fix it each time so she doesn't have to do anything.

Anyone with ideas? Question


Hoping!!!

Pete

Found out I need a bios upgrade.

So I am trying to do that. But It must be done with Windows. So that a problem.


I sure hope I can.

PostPosted: Thu 12 Dec 2013, 12:24    Post_subject: Bluetooth USB adapter?  

I need to make a firmware update to a device that may only be updated via Bluetooth.

Can someone recommend a USB - Bluetooth adapter that works with LH64 602b2, please?

I'm hoping to avoid the usual hours of fighting with a Linux-unfriendly chipset.

When I choose Save-As for a PDF file in Firefox I'm forced to the default location:

/spot/downloads/

Can someone remind me where to change that, please?

In Firefox you should go to Edit in Menu bar and then choose Preferencies .

But to save outside spot it's better to start Firefox in terminal.

I had already changed it to "Ask where ...", but it ignores that and goes to the /spot/downloads/ default.

I will try starting from terminal.

Thanks!

You are hitting a "Security" feature of your system to protect you.

There is a way around it, though. If you go to Menu>Internet> and choose the "other" option for Firefox, it will allow you start Firefox as root. There, you can save files wherever on your PC.

Here to help

How might I go about adding this to FF or add something elsewhere in order to view djvu docs, please?

In PPM - Internet , slackware64-14.0 repo , there is a pet djvulibre-3.5.25.3 .
Usually evince opens djvu documents , but for me it worked only after I installed djvulibre... pet . It does not open all the djvu documents though ...

Thanks - located, downloaded, & opened.

Do I need to do something further as there's no sign of it under Menu nor any response in Console using "djvu" or "djvulibre".

It is merely an underlying layer which allows something like evince to work?

Is there a chance that Firefox or LibreOffice or GIMP or some other existing app can leverage the djvulibre layer to handle djvu files?

What about Djvu4?
