Hi Fredx181 and others,

Looking at the apt2sfs utility I see an apt2sfs full install version. I assume this is for use if you have a fully installed stretch rather than a frugal install?

Coming from puppy, I have been happy with frugal installs, but since this is a dog...

Is there an advantage or reason to reconsider using full installs with dogs?

thanks


Good question, I've never myself used anything but frugal Dog installs and have occasionally wondered what apt2sfs full install version is all about. I think the majority of Dog users use it in frugal installs, much like Puppy though.

Some big applications that run mostly independently of the main system, get put into /opt.

Most browsers, google earth, thunderbird, etc.

Those are the things that you can link out to /live/image.


There is no "image" folder in my "live" folder. Do I have to manually create it ?

The /live/image in the linux file system.

/live/image should be the same as /mnt/home in Puppy (the partition that Debian Dog is installed on).

If you can't find it, don't create anything, wait for Fred.

I am sorry here I am again. This time I am looking for the 32bit compatibility squash for the AMD64. Or the other name architecture-i386. I tried to make one but I always end up with "E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages."

Code:
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
apt-get install libstdc++6:i386 libgcc1:i386 zlib1g:i386 libncurses5:i386 libc6:i386 glib-2.0:i386


The package if available will be nice or can you tell me What I am missing?

Thanks in advance


That's because package glib-2.0 doesn't exist (I assume you meant libglib2.0-0).

This is what I'd use as 32 compatibility base:
(probably depending on which Stretch you use (custom build or StretchDog), the preferences file needs to be moved to preferences.bak)
Code:
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
mv -f /etc/apt/preferences /etc/apt/preferences.bak # must do this, otherwise errors
apt-get install libc6:i386 libatk1.0-0:i386 libcairo2:i386 libfontconfig1:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libgtk-3-0:i386 libpango1.0-0:i386 libsm6:i386 libxext6:i386 libxrender1:i386 libxt6:i386 libasound2:i386 libdbus-glib-1-2:i386

I see more disavantages of a full install than advantages, AFAIK the only advantage can be (if installed on hard disk) that a full install may be a litlle faster (and boot faster) and a little less RAM consuming at initial boot.

Note that running a full install has been not much tested (most people have frugal install, I guess)

*** Some changes and fixes in custom repository ***

Added:
pmusic, adopted from Puppy, thanks to zigbert ! - thread on murga-linux

pequalizer, adopted from Puppy (some modification was required to make it work with the newest libasound-equal), thanks to 01micko ! - thread on murga-linux
(requires newest gtkdialog package, see below)

straw-viewer, https://github.com/trizen/straw-viewer replacement for 'youtube-viewer' (and gtk-youtube-viewer) that does not work anymore because of a change at the google/youtube end.
Straw-viewer is a fork of youtube-viewer (by the same author: trizen ), based on gtk3, installing it will remove the youtube-viewer package.
See also Here
EDIT: Recommended to run from Menu > Multimedia > Gtk-Youtube-updater, to update/install newest youtube-dl (helper program for straw-viewer)
EDIT: Problems with running gtk-straw-viewer, see discussion below. EDIT: fixed with v0.0.2-2, see below.

Fixed:
gtkdialog, forum member wiak fixed a small bug for gtkwialog (gtkdialog is symlink to gtkwialog in the package) making 'comboboxentry' work properly.

Install with Synaptic or from terminal with apt.

Fred

Installed the straw-viewer.

I get this error when attempting to run it.

This is in my normal Debian Stretch with systemd turned on.

I'll try it later in a different version to see.

fredx181 Thanks for the info. Will be using it very soon. I did end up loading wine in multiarchture. It loads most of the libraries. Yes I was wrong on glib.

Mmm... got that too now.. the weird thing is that it depends on from where you run it, e.g.
Code:
cd /usr/share/applications; gtk-straw-viewer

works for me, for you too ?
Also:
Code:
cd /root/Desktop; gtk-straw-viewer

works for me.
Can't figure out the reason for this behaviour.

I created a new minimal stretch install. It works now from clicking the .desktop file.

When I run it from the terminal, I get the error, but it opens up anyway and works.

Maybe the error isn't the problem, but something else.

root@live:~# gtk-straw-viewer
WARNING **: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files at /usr/share/perl5/Gtk3.pm line 529.

I'll look at it some more tomorrow.

*******************
edit
******************

I found /usr/share/perl5/auto/share/dist/WWW-StrawViewer/gtk-straw-viewer.glade and it runs if I open the terminal from /usr/share/perl5/auto/share/dist/WWW-StrawViewer/, so it is some kind of a path issue or there needs to be a link made somewhere.

I am going to try to purge and reinstall.

Purged and reinstall.

Behavior is the same.

Yes, same for me.

That I haven't seen yet, you mean the error not finding the .glade file ?
For me it always quits with that error.

Sure it is !

Anyway, I've uploaded a new .deb, v0.0.2-1 with a (ugly) workaround, containing a wrapper script /usr/local/bin/gtk-straw-viewer with contents:
...... <deleted code>
...... <deleted code>
See EDIT below

Also the message "....The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service file...." doesn't show anymore. (but doesn't solve the initial issue).

EDIT: version 0.0.2-2 uploaded without ugly workaround (made small change in gtk-straw-viewer script that fixes the ".glade file not found" problem)

It looks like you need the extra package libxcb-xtest0.
