Thanks broomdodger, I implemented it and it works nicely, I also found the headphone audio o/p is down by default. Turning it up fixed my volume problem. Also your attached zip file is empty????
scsijon, thank you for the feedback. I just downloaded mixer.zip with Seamonkey and QtWeb and both were good.

Thanks bill, I had downloaded and just opened the zip and the file is marked as zero bytes and shown empty in geany. Now what the......?

However, building my own from your instructions worked anyway, so i'm not that fussed, but it is strange. I shall try again.

EDIT: Just tried it and it's now right at 53 bytes, very strange as I didn't get an error message the last time.

Oh, well, that's the internet for you.

@scsijon:

It surprises me that your Region 4 discs would behave so differently from my Region 1 discs with respect to # and j. It would be nice if some other Aussies in the forum would reply.

BK briefly had a version of Ogle in the 5.7 betas. There were numerous complaints that it didn't work at all, so he removed it.

Sub_title: Java Install, can a few people test this on Precise Puppy 5.7.1
 

What do you think of a shell script file to install Java JRE from Oracle? Musher0 has created such a script file. I suggest this be included into PuppyLinux, to make it easy for new users to install Java on their new PuppyLinux. Test it out and report back to this thread if it works for you, please.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=77821&start=36 Use Musher0 Instl-Java.sh shell script file. It does it all for you including downloading the Java JRE file from the internet.

There's a typo in installpkg.sh on line 227: *.pkg.tar.zx) #130314 arch pkgs.

Even if it's corrected, it doesn't create *.files in /root/.packages and the user-installed-packages entry is messed up so the package will also not uninstall. Precise 5.6.1 is the same.

Code:
||||Graphic|||ristretto-0.6.3-3-i686.pkg.tar.xz||Look at your images easily|


Code:
# petget /mnt/sdb1/Linux/Puppy/archpup/ristretto-0.6.3-3-i686.pkg.tar.xz
DLPKG_BASE=ristretto-0.6.3-3-i686.pkg.tar.xz
DLPKG_NAME=
DB_ENTRY=|||||||ristretto-0.6.3-3-i686.pkg.tar.xz|||
db_pkg_name=
EXIT="OK"


Looks like the problem is in petget.

Sub_title: Single tab
 

In the Pmount preferences, by checking the "single window" or "single tab view" box and restarting Pmount nothing happens, Pmount keeps showing volumes in separate tabs.

Apart from that working really well on my P4 computer (PAE version).

PostPosted: Sat 17 Aug 2013, 23:32    Post_subject: Precise Puppy 5.7.1  

Hi all,

Here's an update on my issues with xlock and power management in Precise Puppy retro.

My problems persisted with my computer freezing up even though sometimes it was many hours later that I would experience such issues. After some research and experimentation, I think that I have finally achieved a permanent solution... Very Happy

Here's what I have figured out:

The crux is that the default settings for power management namely: standby, suspend, and power off are set to the same value, namely: 600 (seconds). This doesn't work, of course, because you cannot have effective power management if the system is trying to achieve three different states at the same time!

I can easily change this with xset command:
Code:
xset dpms 1200 1800 2400

where the values are in seconds for each power management state, which (by the way) are the settings used in Wary 5.3 and are also apparently the default settings according to the documentation regarding xset. The problem here is that any changes xset makes are session specific only. This is useful for testing configurations but I want something permanent. It turns out that I can do that in xorg.conf
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "Default Layout"
    Screen "Screen0" 0 0
    InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
    Option "StandbyTime" "20"
    Option "SuspendTime" "30"
    Option "OffTime" "40"
EndSection

Note that the values entered for power management in xorg.conf are in minutes whereas the values listed with xset are in seconds. This is potentially a source for confusion, and, (I suspect) what can happen when you have more than one developer working on related projects... Interestingly enough, I haven't figured out yet where the permanent values for power management are actually set in Wary Puppy, but, it is not in xorg.conf so, (as is often the case in configurations) there is more than one method to get this result.

Last, I reset the values for the screen to blank out and cycle in .xintrc to be the same as in Wary 5.3

Code:
else
 ##Xorg has it's own fontpath settings in /etc/X11/xorg.conf...
 #if [ "`readlink /usr/bin/X`" != "Xorg" ];then
 # #xset fp+ /usr/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/
 # #xset fp+ /usr/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/
 # xset fp+ /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1/
 # xset fp+ /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF/
 #fi
 xset s 600 600 s blank
fi

This means the screen will blank out, and cycle after ten minutes although (to be honest) I could not find any info from my research as to exactly what is the cycle function.

I want to emphasize that I am using the same values for power management as in Wary 5.3 because that is what works for me, but I do think there is room for adjustment in xorg.conf
Code:
Option "StandbyTime" "10"
Option "SuspendTime" "20"
Option "OffTime" "30"

I think this would work nicely because it means that the time that the screen blanks is going to be the same as when the computer goes into standby mode. If these two events go hand in hand, then who knows, it might even result in better power management overall... --worth a try I think.

Hope this helps,
Monsie

I cannot reproduce this issue in Precise Puppy-retro... Pmount seems to be working fine for me. Could this issue only be occurring in the regular version of Precise Puppy?

Hi Monsie
Try adding your xset commands AFTER the xset in '.xinitrc'.
The following is mine...
+ slow the mouse
+ I do not like screensavers
+ your display power settings
Code:
if [ -f /root/.xset.sh ];then
 #this is created by /usr/bin/pupx...
 eval "/root/.xset.sh"
else
 ##Xorg has it's own fontpath settings in /etc/X11/xorg.conf...
 #if [ "`readlink /usr/bin/X`" != "Xorg" ];then
 # #xset fp+ /usr/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/
 # #xset fp+ /usr/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/
 # xset fp+ /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1/
 # xset fp+ /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF/
 #fi
 xset s 600 600 s blank
fi

# mouse acc=1 thr=32
  xset m 1/1 32

# screensaver off
  xset s blank s noexpose s 0 0

# Standby Suspend Off in seconds
  xset dpms 1200 1800 2400
Use this command in terminal just after a restart to check the xset values:
Code:
xset -q

Thanks, broomdodger

I tried your method and after a brief test, it appears to work for me also. It is always useful to know of alternative configurations. Cool

That said, I have read several reports covering the past three years where users have complained of bugs with xset. This of course, is all the more reason why it is useful to know of options when it comes to troubleshooting...

Hi Monsie.

Would you like 'to waste some time' with Slacko 5.6 (K-3.10.5 [X.org:1.12.4]) as this X.org version supports old graphic cards. It also implements support for 'DPMS-enabled'.

If an individual card is capable or not can be read right there: /var/log/X.org.0.log. An example file is right there:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=719773#719773

Thanks for testing!

PostPosted: Tue 20 Aug 2013, 06:25    Post_subject: ogle  

Just an update for anyone interested (then i'll shut up on the subject).

Had my godchilds two kids over the weekend, I kept them happy in the cold with 2 machines setup with 571 and the latest ogle from the wary-5 package directory, no problems at all with either theirs or my dvd's.

regards
scsijon

I hope Barry read this thread, and maybe able to shed his light on this one too:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=720757#720757

Topic is about a FAT version, like an LTS release every 2 years.

I think his advise could be very valuable.
