Hi Barry,

I am trying to compile in puppy precise 5.7.1 for i686.
I am trying the minimal options for abiword.

./configure alone doesnt work, it needs boostlib
./configure --with-boost=no doesnt work, needs gtk3
./configure --with-boost=no --with-gtk2 , doesnt work, still needs boostlib
So I opened a bug report : http://bugzilla.abisource.com/show_bug.cgi?id=13695

boostlib isn't in the Devx by default ? So I cannot compile abiword without it ?

Cheers.

http://bugzilla.abisource.com/show_bug.cgi?id=13695
Ok it's a bug but they won't fix it (damn). Boostlib is mandatory for abiword.


Yeah, boost is required. Both i686 and amd64 April builds have it, in the devx.
I haven't uploaded Quirky April i686 yet, will do so soon.

The i686 build will have some of the same bugs as the amd64 build, and with the help of you guys testing this alpha-release, I will get lots of those bugs squashed, so when upload i686 April it should be a pretty good experience.

Billtoo,
Did you compare mplayer and gnome-mplayer, with different videos?

I tested mplayer with some video files, and it either crashed or wouldn't play them. Mostly crashed.

Regarding Abiword, this is how I configured it in T2:

Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu --disable-gucharmap --enable-print --enable-spell --enable-static --disable-shared --with-gtk2 --enable-plugins="freetranslation gdict grammar mswrite opendocument openwriter openxml pdf wmf"  --disable-default-plugins --without-goffice --without-gnomevfs --with-gio --disable-debug --with-boost


The 'grammar' plugin got linked into the abiword executable, but I think it only works if compiled as a separate plugin.

EDIT:
For 64-bit target, change above to '--build=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu'


Hello, Mr. Kauler.

Abiword is its plugins.

Instead of again giving an incomplete representation of abiword by compiling only a
few of its plug-ins, -- hopefully you are doing so for technical reasons, but whatever
the case may be -- please leave it out and gain some space for the distro. You could
simply provide URL's to direct potential users to both Médor's and shinobar's
excellent Abiword-3 sfs's.

General users and even some of those who write for a living will then have a choice
and be better served since both packages provide a complete word-processing tool,
not a crippled one.

From one who's pushed for years for having the full abiword in Puppy. Puppyists
now have the tremendous chance to have available two complete versions of
abiword 3. Why go backwards, why settle for less?

Best regards.

The main point of the exercise with April is that everything is compiled from source in T2. Everything.

Yes, I am open to having a more fully-featured Abiword, with all or most plugins.

If someone is will to do a compile in April64, with all or most options enabled, verify that it works, then post the configure options here, I will seriously consider putting that into T2.

The devx has 'boost', so the infrastructure is there for compiling a fully-featured Abiword.

Still trying to build abiword in precise 686...and chasing after libraries.
After installing boost , I got
ut_go_file.cpp:1187:38: error: 'gsf_input_http_new' was not declared in this scope
So missing library "libgsf" in devx...
Trying to install libgsf, it needs gnome-common.
Installed gnome-common, libgsf needs gtk-doc
Trying to configure gtk-doc :
configure: error: could not find DocBook XML DTD V4.3 in XML catalog
Ok what's next ? Very Happy
ps : I think I will try this directly in april64.


The only way to be helpful to this thread is to compile in April64. The devx has all the packages needed to compile latest Abiword.

This is the whole point, to contribute to the T2 build. Hence you must be running April64 + devx pet.

I just tried a few files, seems it plays movie dvd's and that's about it.

EDIT: I found that umplayer works better, plays dvd's well plus plays a few other file formats.

@BarryK.

Thank you for your reply and your openness. However, with my current knowledge of
Linux, I would not be up to the task, even if I can perceive the need of it. Hopefully
someone more experienced than I will put his shoulder to the wheel. I have already
contacted Médor about it. Who knows?

Again, thanks for your reply, and a Happy, Healthy and Successful 2015!

Hello BarryK

From your blog:

Quote:
No media player. I did have Mplayer, but it has been going downhill for the last year or so, and has become unusable.


MPV is the currently active fork of MPlayer. It doesn't require QT and runs from the command line like MPlayer. There have been lots of changes and it is not backwards compatible with MPlayer or the various GUI front-ends for Mplayer.
It has a mouse operated OSD when a video is playing for all the usual tasks.
http://mpv.io/
https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv

And SMplayer has now been updated to support MPV. Not a trivial task, it seems. It does use QT

http://blog.smplayer.info/smplayer-with-support-for-mpv-is-now-available/
http://smplayer.sourceforge.net/en/mpv

I have both running on Fatdog64. I used Ubuntu Trusty packages from Launchpad.

MPV is the antithesis of VLC, which has new releases once in a blue moon. MPV has a new release every couple of weeks. I use both.
