In general look at all the settings in preferences for looking ok.
Changing the audio setting and cache worked for me.

Good call. Under Plugin, I set the Cache Size to 32K and now streams start almost immediately.

Subject description: This seems a bit petty but it is still a bug
 

The connect icon in the help file doesn't match the one on the desktop, which is about as unhelpful as a help file can be.

Since all versions of Puppy are now using different icon sets my guess is that this file needs to be edited for every new release.

I don't click on the helpfile that often so this may have been the case for some time.

I mean the "two barks" helpfile at the top of the screen which you get on first booting. Not the helpfile you find at the bottom left.

It's almost immediate if using mplayer vs gnome-mplayer. For easy clicking, just script.

PostPosted: Sun 16 May 2010, 18:24    Post subject: quirky 1.1, Thinkpad R40, internet connection SNS  

Internet has been set up with SNS.
But the configuration isn't persistent between boots and has to be redone again. However /etc/simple_network_setup/connections contains the correct setup data.

This issue has been reported now for the fifth time.

PostPosted: Sun 16 May 2010, 18:28    Post subject: quirky 1.1, Thinkpad R40, no create save file dialogue  

After booting with pfix=ram and setting up to the liking, there is no panel presented to create a save file.
Instead a msg appears 'session not saved'

This issue is a long outstanding one, for me, and apparently can't be recreated on some other machines.

Hi

Ayttm is ok now!

First impression: very well really!

Different from Q1.0, it did need a little effort to make the sound being able to work using the alsa wizard as well as the settings in Gnome Mplayer but now, it works.
And as soon it was working in MPlayer it did also work in SeaMonkey 2.

Thank you Barry for the new work!

I will tomorrow install more programs to test if all stay being working well.

Bye

PostPosted: Sun 16 May 2010, 19:37    Post subject: quirky 1.1, Thinkpad R40, Homebank OFX  

I had hoped that import of a ofx file would be possible now, but it's not the case.
Why is this functionality disabled?
My bank only gives ofx output.

Barry, qrky110 is awesome! I've got a new puppy love.

The new mesa-7.6-q1.pet works perfectly. Installed, exited to prompt, typed "xwin" and I'm using Googleearth-5.1, easy as that.

I do have two recommendations for 1.2:
/root/Choices/MIME-types/application_x-chm should be changed to:
Code:
exec pzchmview "$1"
and /usr/share/mime/globs should have
Code:
application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document:*.docx
changed to
Code:
application/msword:*.docx

In both cases this will allow one click opening of files.

One more recommendation, I'm not noted for my good taste Embarassed but I prefer the stardust icons on that great quirky1.1 desktop.

Thanks again! J

FWIW: For general user info. If you can get a copy of wmv9dmod.dll and place it in /usr/lib/codecs, Gnome-Mplayer will play a wider variety of .wmv files. I'm not even sure what version of windows has this file, I actually found it in a .pet I downloaded some time ago, won't mention any names (to protect the guilty). Wink

I won't ask you to email it to me at bkaulerATgmailDOTcom Smile

GNOME MPlayer wouldn't play anything I asked it to in previous Quirkys. I figured it was just me or that the problem would get fixed by now (I'm testing Quirky 1.1,) as usually happens with early versions of new Puppys if I just wait a while. Smile But that hasn't happened. No matter what I try, MPlayer remains stubbornly silent. I've tried a regular audio CD (The Best of ABBA, no less,) a DVD, some AVI video files made with a Canon S3IS digital camera, and a mp3 file. If I drag the mp3 or AVI file from ROX onto the "Play" icon on the desktop, the playlist opens and the file shows up in it, but that's all. Clicking the "Play" arrow does nothing. If I click the mp3 file, MPlayer opens and says "Buffering," then says "Pmusic," but nothing else happens.

All these different file types play in Gxine in this machine, in earlier versions of Puppy.

I've got a frugal install of Quirky 1.10 on my P3 test box watching a DVD right now (Jet Li in Hero) with Gnome MPlayer.
I just played a few wmv files, a mp3 and a couple of mp4's (Lobster's Youtube vids I downloaded earlier). Everything I've tried plays.

The dvd is playing fullscreen with no skips, jerks or jumps...no problems at all .It's strange how these releases work great for one person and not for someone else.

When playing an audio disc with Gnome-Mplayer. It plays but the CD player does not run at a constant speed. It slows down and speeds up, so the audio goes on and off. Da?????

The other audio players work ok.
