Looks like you didn't click on the "Save" button in lxrandr. Wink

Thanks, Fred! Shame on me Smile I use Applay button and after this lxrandr window does not appear any more.

I will upload the fix deb package soon as I make it work.

Edit; Here is the deb package:
http://smokey01.com/saintless/DebianDog/Extra-modules/lxrandr-save-fix_1.0_i386.deb
Tested with root and user and seems fine to me.
Thank you, William!

Hi francois.E

Can you look at the below and give as much as possible info about what you did and did not?
Also which version of Porteus-Wheezy.
I guess only then I can help.

Fred

@fred:
The solution you propose is exactly what I am looking for.

With the xfce4-session-settings command in XFCE you get a gui called session and startup that propose to save automatically sessions on logout under its general tab, but also to add applications at bootup under the application autostart tab.


Here's new obshutdown-porteuswheezy_0.1.1-1_i386.deb.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByBgCDlZZ8K5STh2djE3R3dZMmM/edit?usp=sharing

I think you said you use Porteus-Wheezy, the one with kernel 3.9.11-porteus , right?
In that case you need to uninstall the obshutdown package first:
Code:
apt-get purge obshutdown

Then open a terminal in the folder where you downloaded the deb and do:
Code:
dpkg -i obshutdown-porteuswheezy_0.1.1-1_i386.deb


Then you can install xfce4-session without failiure.

Note that the window-manager that is running is "openbox" with some xfce components added.
This means that installing xfce4-session alone doesn't work because xfce has no "control".
What I would do is: install a minimal xfce4, like this:
Code:
apt-get install xfce4-session xfwm4 xfce4-utils


And then change in /root/.xsession the line:
Code:
exec openbox-session

To:
Code:
exec startxfce4


Then logout and back in.
Tell me if you need more help.

Fred


Following these steps is what you have to do.

My difficulty was with the last step:
Quote:
Then logout and back in.


1) There is the logout entry in the xfce menu. Choosing it to logout would not work, yielding an error message which :
Code:
Failed to receive a reply from the session manager


2) There is a second logout entry in the xfce menu under the internet entry. The logout button at the right of the panel is also good. Select the exit x option and save file, the use startx to resume X environment (or just completely reboot the computer with restart x and save file). Then when back in the xfce desktop select :
menu > settings > session and startup > automatically save session at logout.

Thus your last changes will be kept for next reboot. Bingo.

Thanks once more.

I was excited to try this when I loaded it up on my old POS computer, but I ran out of ram quickly installing stuff. So I tried it on my brand new laptop with uefi, but couldn't get it to boot. Not sure if what I have to do to make it work.

ON A SECOND INSTALLATION, IT DOES NOT WORK??? I will have to sort this out.

I will have to look at it in the following days.

I don't have any computer with uefi, so I can't comment about that. If you want help with what you call your old POS computer, you would need to give details about the machine. What CPU does it use, how much ram does it have, what filesystem (Linux extx, windows fat32 etc) are you storing debiandog too (or if to usb or cd or whatever) and so on. But this is the thread used for discussing DebianDog related development so you should post your help requests on the other thread. There is a link to that in post one of this thread.

Hi, Chili Dog.
Unfortunately I can't help without more information.
Here is the post regarding available boot methods in DebianDog:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=771571&sid=0c9081d3fff2143591a61c2df4f52f83#771571
Please, post your setup configuration that does not boot and is there an error message?
Is it a hdd drive or usb drive frugall install and what is the boot code you use?
It is possible the kernel does not support your laptop hardware but I doubt that. Anyway we have separate newer kernel modules to try if you decide to test.

If you can make Puppy boot on your UEFI machine like this for example:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/web/faqs/uefi-harddrive.html
you will be able to boot DebianDog changing the menu entry only.
There are tutorials how to install DebianWheezy but only for full install.

Toni

Hi francois.E,

I have to ask:
You did all this?:
Quote:
apt-get install xfce4-session xfwm4 xfce4-utils


And then change in /root/.xsession the line:
Code:
exec openbox-session

To:
Code:
exec startxfce4

It is very helpful.

Thank you for that detailed articulate answer.

I'm going to give it a try.

I just downloaded and booted it. WOW.

It did exactly what you said it would do. All I had to do was type the apt-get commands you showed me. Seeing the messages scrolling on the screen as the commands did their thing has now given me insight into what this package manager stuff is all about. It's starting to make a lot of sense.

apt-get successfully downloaded and installed python, and the newly-installed python correctly solved a large linear algebra problem with no errors.

You guys are amazing.

I know the following question is going to sound like the answer should be obvious, but I'd like to know: Is there some way I can save this python installation I've downloaded so I don't have to download it again? I ask because I booted from the LiveCD and have not frugal-installed yet and there is no personal save file yet. I left the Debian Dog machine running in case there is a simple way to save it before I shut it down.

Thanks for your help.

.

If you booted with live-boot-v3 (the default first menu entry) - no.
If you booted with live-boot-v2 or porteus-boot - yes.
But its OK anyway. You will reproduce your actions very easy with the same result again and again.
Are you running jwm or openbox version?
Do you have ext partition formated on the hard drive?
If yes and you did not boot the first live-boot-v3 menu entry, then for Jwm version run System->RemasterCow
(for openbox version run Create Module From Changes)
Then chose the partition and name for working folder (02-my-changes for example) and module 02-my-changes-squashfs (for example).
This will save your changes in separate sfs module.



Please, read the first few posts here in DebianDog-beta version thread and ask when something is unclear there.

OK, I will reboot with v2 and try that. The "Remaster COW" GUI says it's better to run a script from the terminal. What would be the syntax for that command?

Hi, Ether.
RemasterCow menu entry will start the program with terminal open so just start it from the menu.
The new created module (squashfs) can be loaded after that with right click -> Scripts -> SFS-Load (Or from Utility-> SFS-Loader-new /or old) Or you can make frugal install and place it in /live folder. It will be loaded automatically on boot this way. Just note you can not load more than 8 squashfs modules in /live folder on boot.
You have also several save file/folder/partition options or full remaster of the main system module with all changes and installed programs with RemasterDog (same interface as RemasterCow).

When you need help just write.

Toni

Hi Toni, William
Sometime ago I compiled a static ffmpeg.
It has the most common converting options included I think, e.g. mp3, vorbis, xvid, x264.
It's around 14MB
Not very new version but AFAIK newer than the one from debian stable.

Thanks Fred, I'll check your one out. I've had a quick look at the one from slitaz cooking, which seems to be even smaller, but that one seems to be lacking in encoding codecs compared to the ones I'm used to in Puppy (and it doesn't include ffplay).

I'm also thinking of trying libav-tools instead since Debian choose to support that over the related ffmpeg. That comes with a (probably somewhat old) version of ffmpeg, which works, because I've used it in Puppy Precise with pavrecord (webcam video and audio recorder). However, I'm actually thinking of modifying pavrecord to use avconv instead of (or in addition to in separate version) ffmpeg anyway.

Amongst other dependencies, Pavrecord depends on ffplay (which could be a symlink to avplay) and some compiles of ffmpeg don't have that included (in some very old Puppies it is not there for example). In theory, Pavrecord could just use mplayer instead of ffplay (it needs mplayer installed anyway), however I've never managed to successfully pipe video through mplayer without huge lags (I've tried all sorts of things to stop buffering), whereas ffplay works fine in a pipe (which is why it is currently needed in pavrecord)

EDIT: Just had a quick try of your ffmpeg Fred. Yes, it is quite convenient being a static compile so no extra libs needed. At a quick glance it seems to include all the main codecs including libfaac. Unfortunately, you also compiled it with ffplay disabled, so no use without that for pavrecord at least. We can also get static builds of ffmpeg from http://ffmpeg.gusari.org/static/32bit/, which is linked to be the official ffmpeg site; their ffmpeg is around 20MB though and also doesn't seem to come with ffplay.

EDIT2: I'm going to quickly install libav-tools from debian repository and see if that works and could be stripped down. OK, done that. Yes that includes a version of ffmpeg (1.0.8) and also ffplay. Seems to have all the codecs required. It is big as it stands of course (on my system was 11 MB compressed, 34 or so MB uncompressed; haven't tried on clean iso yet though). Hmmm, interesting, avconv is just a link to ffmpeg 1.0.8 - I thought debian were supporting avconv in preference. I haven't checked yet which deb repository it came from. EDIT3: Ah, I think it came from deb ftp://ftp.deb-multimedia.org wheezy main non-free rather than from official debian repository. From that site, (EDIT) libav-tools has ffmpeg as a dependency and has symlink frm avconv to that. I removed deb-multimedia repository and tried again - this time libav-tools doesn't include ffmpeg build, it only includes avconv (though a symlink to avconv may work with pavrecord - I'll try that). I've just downloaded the current iso so I'll try with that from clean install.

Thanks, Fred, William!

William, I try to avoid anything from non-free repository included in DebianDog and I use default sources only in /etc/apt/sources.lst
I'm not sure what is the state with ffmpeg and libav-utils dependencies but it is better to play safe and not to include dependencies from non-free debian repository. If we can use something from puppy or slitaz without this non-free issue it is better to get it from there for upload on the site.

Toni

The problem is that I don't know what is non-free or not when it comes from Puppy or Slitaz. Otherwise, I'm sure I could find a smallish ffmpeg from some Puppy distribution that would work with, for example, pavrecord, which is my test case since it needs the most codecs probably. I think I read somewhere that Debian stable avconv provides a good range of codecs for playback but not so many for encoding/recording - they just provide an old ffmpeg I think, since the libav fork is what Debian currently supports instead.

EDIT: debian stable avconv seems to only include the experimental aac audio encoder, which is a limited encoder in terms of quality. However, it has the other codecs and also ffplay (as a symlink to avplay), which means pavrecord could be made to work fine. I already tested that avconv/ffmpeg with xrecord and it was fine (aside from that aac audio limitation). Problem with it is its size (uses so many dependencies!); Fred's static one looks nice (though I haven't tested it in operation) if he could recompile it with ffplay enabled (but I would like libfaac or libvo-aacenc included but not so sure of its non-free status either). Seems to be common to compile ffmpeg in Puppy with the option --enable-nonfree:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=79871

If ffmpeg/libav-tools is just an optional addon sfs module, I would suggest non-free enabled okay in which case we could compile our own version or try a Puppy one? Preferably libfaac since libvo-aacenc since the webpage below suggests libvo-aacenc is poor.
