For the record can you describe in detail how you managed to get Google Chrome running in Tahr?
Have you tried Chromium?

It is in the Ubuntu repository. I just noticed it there, using the Quirky Package Manager, haven't tried it though.
I tried Chromium... it said:
Quote:
Chromium can not be run as root.
Please start Chromium as a normal user. To run as root, you must specify an alternate --user-data-dir for storage of profile information.
I do not understand what to do. But I like to play and may solve.

Also after PPM install, it said 'gstreamer' was needed.
But I have service_pack-6.0.3_TO_6.0.4-tahr.pet installed, which was to add gstreamer.

EDIT:
Well I tried and it did not work:
Code:
# chromium-browser

Oh my... what to do?

Bill


OK, fixed, see blog post:
http://bkhome.org/news/?viewDetailed=00063

There was rather a lot to do, to get it all right, but the next release of Quirky Tahr (6.0.5), which should be out very soon, will (hopefully) have it all sorted out.

Open geany (or your preferred text editor) and create a file called rox1 with the following:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
exec rox -U "$@"


Save the file in /usr/local/bin

Make it executable

In seamonky:
Edit > Preferences > Browser > Helper Applications:
add rox1 under the "Content Type > file" entry.

I followed the instructions but saved the file to /root/my-applications/rox1 and now 'Open Containing Folder' now works.

Another option was proposed, I have not tried it.

Quirky Tahr works with Gimp-painter

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=91074

However I couldn't get the Wacom tablet driver to compile
in Quirky Tahr. It would complain in terminal that XORG wasn't
installed and that dependencies of XORG needed to be installed.

I made a simple but effective reminder app.

Quirky Tahr 6.0.4
PPM install leave_1.12-2.1 from Ubuntu

man leave
http://www.manpagez.com/man/1/leave/

Quirky T2
I copied the leave binary from the Quirky Tahr to
/root/my-applications/bin/leave,
make it executable.

I did this because leave is only part of the Ubuntu packages.

And... this also works.

Use a text editor like geany,
copy the following into a file named 'WalkOn',
save it to 'my-applications',
and make it executable.
/root/my-applications/WalkOn

Bill
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# Walk ON the hour

# grrr 00-09 is octal, convert to base 10
#hour=$((10#`date +"%H"`))
# --or--
hour=`date +"%-I"` # - no padding, I 01..12, H 00..23

for i in 4 3 2 1 ; do
t=$(( ( hour + i ) * 100 ))
(( t >= 2400 )) && (( t = t - 2400 ))

exec urxvt -g 47x5-0+$((13*i)) +sb \
  -bg black -fg cyan \
  -w 0 -b 1 -bd green \
  -title "Take a Walk" \

Quirky Tahr 6.0.3 upgraded to 6.0.4
SeaMonkey 2.23

Previously I wrote how I enabled an external mail handler in SeaMonkey so I could use sylpheed to handle mailto links.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=757596#757596

It worked in Quirky Tahr 6.0.4 that had been updated incrementally from Quirky Tahr 6.0.1, AND where I also copied the folder /root/.mozilla to the new system.

This time I did a clean install of Quirky Tahr 6.0.3 updated using:
service_pack-6.0.3_TO_6.0.4-tahr.pet
I did NOT copy the /root/.mozilla folder to it.

I went thru the same procedure to create the mailto handler. Clicking a mailto link would error saying something like 'no mailto handler found'.

Next I copied in the old /root/.mozilla, now the mailto handler works.

I have not isolated what is different.

Has anyone tried to setup an external mail handler in Quirky Tahr?

Yes, and strip it, it goes down to about 38K.

I am a slow learner and I just want to let you know that recent executable stripped is down to 17 k now.

Bill,
My SeaMonkey doesn't have a "file" under "Content type". It has various others: "ASX file", "BZ2 file", "GZ file", etc.

The busybox 'printf' applet might do an octal to base 10 conversion. It works like the C printf() function.

I used the service packs to update my Quirky Tahr install to 6.0.5,
updated the devx too.
Used PPM to install the Chromium web browser, it's working fine
running as user spot done with QuickSetup first-run settings.

Unable to upgrade (HD) from 604 to 605 - insufficient space. That is ridiculous. Tried to reduced sda2(ext3) by 300Mb , (OK) and add it to sda1(ext4) using GPartEd - refused.
Any ideas on either count?

What size partition?

I may have to introduce strict rules in the install scripts, not to allow installation into too-small drives/partitions.

For example, currently allowing 2GB min Flash drive, but that is just not usable.

I noticed one thing wrong. When running as root (not spot), the default download directory is supposed to be pre-set in
/file/portable/chromium/profile/Default/Preferences
to download to
/file/downloads

However, when I did a download, it defaulted to /root/Downloads

Quirky Tahr 6.0.5 is released.

As you can see from the above posts, some of the guys already know about this. That's probably because they are running Quirky Tahr, and as soon as they use the Package Manager, it reports upgrade Service Packs available.

Here is the release announcement:
