Are you suggesting that the mtPaint method is easier?

What's your point? Have you tried both methods? Are you recommending one over the other?

You already kindly contributed to don570's thread. I suggest you continue to do so instead of opening a new thread Wink

????????

My procedure lets you print out a grid on paper with specific physical dimensions.

Please explain how you would get that result with Don's technique.

You already asked a similar question in Don's thread. Now that you found a different technique with better functionality, why not add it to the thread?

It's designed to be that. Smile And in addition, this way one does not need a separate program (PeasyGlue) to replicate the original square drawn in mtPaint.
But, as for the really easier method, it would be this mtPaint script one-liner:
Code:

mtpaint --cmd -f/new=rgb w=50 h=50 -s/all='(1,1,50,50)' -p/a=7 -s/fill -i/resize=tile fix=0 w=x32 h=x40 -f/as=graph form=png

I shall not pretend that I have something of value to add in this debate, because what I describe happened many years ago. But, I do remember that we used LaTex to create most of the math papers at the uni, including graph paper. When the correct paper size was used, the graphs were so exactly made, that the printed paper could be control measured with a caliper.

To cap over the original poster's tantrum, here is a Postscript file for printing graph paper, if anyone would need such: lpr graph.ps
As it is, the file creates an A4 page with margins of 1 cm, a grid of cells 2x2 mm, with thicker grid 1x1 cm. To modify those parameters, open the file in a text editor.

No tantrum. I simply applied the do-ocratic principle to the project. If people don't want to participate in the development and provide some beta-testing, then I remove it. It would be irresponsible to leave a project posted if it didn't work.

But I can see why you would think that I had a tantrum, when I was unwilling to immediately accept that your way was the best way. Did the PeasyGlue method not work for you?

In any case, people who still want to try this technique can find the instructions in the PeasyGlue help.

Given that I myself run Slackware, the answer is obvious.
Which is precisely why the most useful method to solve a problem, is the one that minimizes the number of obscure tools required. Irregardless of any sentimental value the tools in question hold for anyone.

This is a Puppy forum. PeasyGlue is a standard component of Puppy.

Once someone has downloaded the pre-made square.png, they don't need to screw around with mtpaint. They can build any sized grid with PeasyGlue in a few clicks.

Do I really need to remind Your Obstinacy that mtPaint is a standard component of Puppy too? Wink

Or do it with mtPaint in less clicks than that, and not screw around with PeasyGlue at all.
Or run an one-liner script and not need any pre-made png's either.
Or modify a few numbers in a Postscript file with a text editor, and send it to printer, without any further GUI interaction.

This nice universe does not revolve around any single tool. Even the one you made. Even the one I made. Smile
