GWP does not save the value when one changes the name of the wallpaper(background graphic)....When selecting the graphic the background changes, but the value is not saved when the system is rebooted.

Running Raring 3992 on a bootable USB.

Thanks rcrsn51.

That tells me a need to make sure I got a good download of iso file or maybe I have a bad install.

It happens Smile

Edit:

Can you believe it Exclamation Shocked Rolling Eyes
A 10 year old USB flash drive going bad. Bad memory section.

New Frugal install of UpupRaring 3,9,9,2 to HDD working fine.
At least this 9 year old HDD seems to still be working OK. Cool Very Happy

Remove any plastic parts from the stick then bake it in a preheated 450degrees fahrenheit oven for 8 minutes. I don't know if it will restore your particular type of flash drive but it works like a charm on HP jetdirect boards and LJ3005 formatter boards. Smile

Worth a try if there is important info on the stick that you want to recover...

PostPosted: Mon 18 Nov 2013, 18:56    Post subject: CuteSDR?  

I used PPM to acquire and install CuteSDR_1.0.5-3 along with all of the dependencies.

The only thing missing was "update-job". (Which appears to be a ubuntu script or something to monitor version changes.)

I ran an update of the PPM/ubuntu respositories just prior to this.

I have the devx sfs set for boot.

I have tried the qt-4.7.1.sfs set for boot and removed, no difference.

CuteSDR fails to recognize my terratec SDR and sometimes freezes and has to be killed.

Anyone tried this and/or have a suggestion as to what may cause this, please?

PostPosted: Tue 19 Nov 2013, 14:40    Post subject: SDR app Direwolf - compile as PET or SFS?  

Just discovered an app called Direwolf that includes Gqrx but once the Linux source is unzipped I have no idea how to successfully get it into a PET or SFS for Raring 3992.

Has anyone compiled this for Puppy?

Rename Makefile.linux to Makefile, or symlink it.
Run 'make' and it compiles quite quickly.
Have a look in the Makefile at the 'install' section. It shows the directory structure - what goes where. Create this in a 'direwolf-0.9' directory and copy the relevant files over.
This is what it is like - file first, followed by destination (just stripped this out of the Makefile).
Code:
decode_aprs /usr/local/bin
text2tt /usr/local/bin
tt2text /usr/local/bin
ll2utm /usr/local/bin
utm2ll /usr/local/bin
aclients /usr/local/bin
tocalls.txt /usr/share/direwolf/tocalls.txt
dw-icon.png /usr/share/direwolf/dw-icon.png
direwolf.desktop /usr/share/applications/direwolf.desktop
direwolf.conf ~
dw-start.sh ~
CHANGES.txt /usr/local/share/doc/direwolf/CHANGES.txt
LICENSE-dire-wolf.txt /usr/local/share/doc/direwolf/LICENSE-dire-wolf.txt
LICENSE-other.txt /usr/local/share/doc/direwolf/LICENSE-other.txt
User-Guide.pdf /usr/local/share/doc/direwolf/User-Guide.pdf
Raspberry-Pi-APRS.pdf /usr/local/share/doc/direwolf/Raspberry-Pi-APRS.pdf
APRStt-Implementation-Notes.pdf /usr/local/share/doc/direwolf/APRStt-Implementation-Notes.pdf
Quick-Start-Guide-Windows.pdf /usr/local/share/doc/direwolf/Quick-Start-Guide-Windows.pdf

You could probably skip the Windows.pdf...

Run dir2pet or dir2sfs on this directory, and off you go.

Thank you Keef ...

I renamed Makefile.linux to Makefile.

I ran Make.

When you wrote the following were you referring to the text that scrolled as Make did it's thing?

Quote:
Have a look in the Makefile at the 'install' section. It shows the directory structure - what goes where.


So, what I am looking for is in the Console history?

This next I don't understand.

Quote:
Create this in a 'direwolf-0.9' directory and copy the relevant files over.


Are you saying that I need to create a file of some sort into which I copy the list that you extracted (or a list like it from my Console history)?

Thanks!

I'll start again!!

I'm assuming 'make' ran ok, and you have got the binaries.

You now need to make a new directory for direwolf to create the pet or sfs. You also need to replicate the file structure the relevant files would be installed to.
This is quite easy, if a little tedious:
Open a terminal and type (or copy and paste)
Code:

mkdir -p direwolf-0.9/usr/local/bin direwolf-0.9/root
cd direwolf-0.9/usr/
mkdir -p share/direwolf local/share/doc share/applications


[mkdir foo will make a single directory called 'foo'. mkdir -p foo/boo makes 'foo' and another inside it called 'boo'. In case you wondered what '-p' was for]

You can check in a rox window (or whatever filemanager you use) that this looks ok.
Leave the terminal open.

You don't actually need to look at the Makefile (Makefile.linux) as I gave you the information anyway.
You don't have to copy it - just read it!
It tells you where each file needs to go eg direwolf, aclients, and gen_fff etc go in /usr/local/bin
dw-icon.png goes into /usr/share/direwolf/
..and so on.
The direwolf.conf and dw-start.sh files go into the 'root' directory (shown by '~' in the list).
Just drag'n'drop using Rox will do. Set the window to list the contents then sort by 'Type' to make it easier (see pic below)
(I don't think the other folders in there 'misc' 'regex' 'utm' are needed for anything).

Once you've done copying, type
Code:

cd ../../

This takes you up a couple of levels so you are outside the 'direwolf-0.9' directory.
Now, if you want a pet, just type 'dir2pet direwolf-0.9' and follow the instructions.
For a sfs..
dir2sfs direwolf-0.9

You can make all the directories with Rox if you prefer - just right click, 'New' > 'Directory' then enter the name. Click on the new directory and do the next one etc..

Hope this is clearer.
