PostPosted: Sun 10 Jun 2018, 21:17    Post subject: large and small word processor updates
Subject description: libre office and ewp-The Emergency Word Processor (bwp, mcbwpt, micro nwp, etc)
 

libre office updates:
LibreOffice-6.0.4_en-US_xz.sfs, LibreOffice-6.0.4_en-US_xz.pet, LibreOffice-6.0.4_64_en-US_xz.pet, LibreOffice-6.0.4_64_en-US_xz.sfs

and thanks to mow9902 for a fix for unresponsive hyperlinks:
dump the following into a terminal and press enter, or copy it into a geany document and press the cauliflower:
Code:

ln -s /usr/local/bin/xdg-open /usr/bin

(adapted from 2 annoying problems with Libreoffice - SOLVED by mow9902)

i can recall an earlier pup refusing to allow a symbolic link unless i used mkdir -p (/already/ existing/ directory's /path)--if you find the above doesn't work, use the mkdir -p line or do it manually as outlined in the above thread.

mini word processor also updated:

bwp1.5 (46k)
mcbwp1 (12k)

ewp--EmergencyWordProcessor.html (159k)
ewp--EmergencyWordProcessor.html.gz (25k)

box1.1.html (159k)
box1.1.html.xz (18k)

Subject description: bwp1.5 and mcbwp1 use a browser and/or text editor as a word processor, but can't key in a tab space
___

the various versions of the browser based word processor appear to also work on my android phone, which gives more options to play with when downloading, but so far saving to pdf works, saving as html doesn't seem to preserve your changes...that's actually as far as i've gotten (testers welcome--you can just download the html files from the bwp folder in the nwp+vtg folder in word processing and related (in pupli repo)).

(more vtg-centric version of the linked help/"help" post upcoming, but the short version is you add commented out commands to the scripts and use the vtg to change the keys on the fly)(not that that's really faster than having swap folders, but it's probably just as fast and allows for perhaps quicker on-the-fly customization than the geany and leafpad launchers could add--just rerun the echo/shebang/chmod chunks after swapping the # or making your change(s)).

___
(second annoying problem mentioned in mow9902's helpful thread is related to language packs and offline help. check it out if your installation is giving you some sort of grief that relates).

thanks for this, woodenshoe-wi.

working well in an old xenial32 spin (based on 704) and a few tahr64 spins (based on 605).

had backups of the pinboard(s) so having mine reset to the alien default wasn't a problem; being able to remove and move columns is great; the installation preserved all my other rox mods (custom icons and the ability to set right click shortcuts were added to the original iso and not lost when the new items were added to the tool bar and menus); the clipboard is great....


mirrored your efforts here: rox filer 4 by woodenshoe (32/64)

thanks again!

-pd

woodenshoe has continued to update it (i think it's up to version eight), but i like version four and have been testing it for a while while simultaneously not keeping up with that thread, so maybe there are better changes out there, but as it stands it's an improvement and i recommend it for both the 32 and 64 bit spins. before you install, enter n in the nwp/pwn launcher (shift plus spacebar) to call up the main/original nwp menu. go to the rox slot, go to pinboards, and select "make 6 puppy pins for the pp series." restart x after the pet installation, navigate to ~/Choices and copy one of the 2-6 Puppy Pins as PuppyPin. if you're actually using the pp series to swap between distinct pins, go to choices and rename the one you're using as the PuppyPin before the installation--the pet will overwrite the main pinboard and reset all of your keyboard in-rox-folder shortcuts (o for odt, f for file, s for script, d for directory, etc), but you can easily reset them--the function is preserved even if the keycuts themselves are not (hover the cursor, select a letter for the function or to change one that's already set by default).

enjoy!

PostPosted: Sun 06 Jan 2019, 18:00    Post subject: some updates
Subject description: word processor, browser, general
 

libreoffice updates:

LibreOffice-6.1.4_64_en-US_xz.sfs
LibreOffice-6.1.4_64_en-US_xz.pet

LibreOffice-6.1.4_en-US_xz.sfs
LibreOffice-6.1.4_en-US_xz.pet

here's a firefox update (firefox64 32/64) thanks to fredx181.

from the notes and links document in the above folder:

Quote:

if you've installed the nwp, you may've noticed the (likely) dead firefox entry on the alt+1/left click menu. if you enter

geany /nwp/root3/9/root1menu

into a terminal and scroll down to the bottom of the document, you'll see something like the following (yours may be set to /opt):

<Program label="Firefox Web Browser" icon="/nwp/root3/icons/Appfffirefox.png">/mnt/sda1/firefox/firefox</Program>

fred's version uses a script called ff to launch the browser, and when you download and extract the archive you'll find it somewhere like

/mnt/home/firefox-64.0-64-bit.tar.gz_extracted/firefox64/ff

highlight the ff script wherever you've downloaded it, copy that path into the geany document you opened to replace the bold faced path above (which might say /opt/firefox[…] on your version), save and close the document, and enter fixmenus; jwm -reload in a terminal (or use the entry for it that's also on that left click menu).

tried doing an x75 spin but the ppm broke, the extend select geany plug in didn't work correctly, and the the cnt nwp shortcut (at the very least) appears broken, but here are links to folders for xdotool and xpad and their dependencies (contains the gtk3 dependency some installations may need for the recent firefoxes (among other things)), the main workshop folder, and the geany plugins i snagged from ubuntu after my ppm went down (i was able to use an older version of sc0ttman's pkg to install sakura....

Pkg - CLI package manager

(as i said, it was an early version but it looks promising. added repos (seems easier than doing so though the ppm), but failed to install either recoll or vlc, both of which can be dependency hell...)).


anyway, i'll likely move to bionic beaver (32 by peebee and 64bit by 666philb) next (though i have an x75 running that --has been taken over), but you're welcome to treat it like a mystery to solve (post the solution when you find it). here are the folders:
xpadandxdotool
x7.64.5
geany127plugins


using a working cnt shortcut, i made the update from nwp9 to nwp10, ewp1.pet
(it's also a standalone (update aspects will just fail if there's nothing to update)--83k).

here's its pinstall script:

Code:

#!/bin/sh
mv /usr/share/applications/icons-alt/desktops /nwp/wp/desktops
#fix for redundant menu entries (sometimes docs, sometimes utilities, sometimes both)
#rm -rf  /usr/share/applications/icons-alt/desktops
#swap to # from the rm line to the mv line if you'd like to just delete the offending folder rather than save it for future mods/launchers
echo $'
#!/bin/sh
ln -s /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser /root/Choices/URI/https
ln -s /usr/local/bin/xdg-open /usr/bin
' > /nwp/lolf
chmod 755 /nwp/lolf
#nwp shortcut for libreoffice unresponsive hyperlink fix --lolf is the shortcut; copy the ewp over to nwp/wp/ and make desktop files and icons for both launchers:

#this stand alone is also an update and fix for the nwp (9 to 10), which would include the following two pets:
petget /tmp/bwp1.5.pet
petget /tmp/mcbwp1.pet
fixmenus
jwm -reload


pet is last couple of updates and will fix the redundant launcher entries you may have on various root menus. it also installs the ewp and copies it over to nwp/wp--you get one version to launch from /root/my-applications/bin and one version to launch from /nwp/wp. if you haven't installed mcbwp1 or bwp1.5, you'll get pop ups asking if you'd like to.

lolf (libre office link fix) is a new shortcut--run it if you notice your hyperlinks not opening correctly in libreoffice (see link to mow9902's post above for more).



enjoy!
