Subject description: Small problems: Geany, ps printing, start-up
 

Quirky 1.1 is superb! Barry, thanks so much. Here are a couple of small bugs for your collection:

1. Geany - does not open files on a samba/cifs share drive. She/It returns "Value too large for defined data type." This problem has occurred with other distributions (not with puppies). There was a solution suggested in the Arch forum: add
Code:
,nounix, noserverino,
to smb/cfs mount. I was not able to test this as I could not get mount.cifs to work in a console.

Nicoedit is in general a good workaround alternative, but not for German language files that have to be processed in the consle with utilities like sed, grep, etc. Nicoedit saves the special characters in two-bite format (utf-16?) and the console seems to swear by ISO 8859-1. I would greatly appreciate either a fix for Geany (which allows you to choose the character set) or for Nico. In the meantime, I will drag and drop to a local drive.

2. Printing to a ps-file via CUPS-PDF does not work properly. The top and left margins are are ignored. There are various workarounds for producing pdf-files (in abiword, you can preview the file and successfully print from PDF Viewer, OOo has its own pdf export function, but it produces files that are ten times the size of pdf's produced from ps's with ps2pdf in the console). It would be nice to have this function back (no problem in Puppy 4.31).

3. Start-up. One thing I don't like about the console is that it beeps at you for minor infractions like attempting to backspace past the beginning of the line. Early on, I wrote a one-line shell script to turn the beep off. I put this in an executable directory with a link to /root/Startup. No longer works. Have to start it each time by hand.

What was the script?

Have you tried adding to .Xdefaults ?

Here is the script:

Code:
#!/bin/sh

# Turn off beep
xset b off


I haven't tried your suggestion, but there is another simple workaround. Simply make the file etc/profile.local (if it does not already exist) and add the line: xset b off to it. Now, the beep will be turned off automatically when you boot. Actually, this is a much more elegant solution than the shell script. The same file can be used for your personal aliases, etc.

Just the same, I would like to see the /root/Startup option "reenabled". Too bad I didn't post my "bug collection" in time for consideration in Quirky 1.12, but perhaps some of them have been fixed anyway.

Testing on my EeePc 900a, I am really happy that i can finally play games that require Opengl using Puppy and not some huge bloated OS.Games that I have tested are OpenArena, Smokin' Guns, SuperTuxKart and Tremulous all are playable at decent speeds.

I just wanted to say thanks alot for quirky!!!

!broomdodger reported these work in puppy 431 with rxvt...

Rxvt.keysym.Home: \033[1~
Rxvt.keysym.End: \033[4~

Almost Smile For puppy 431 it should be:

!puppy431 sol eol
!Rxvt.keysym.0xFF50: \033[1~
!Rxvt.keysym.0xFF57: \033[4~

Similar to that for quirky, but the older rxvt (in puppy431) does not understand: Rxvt.keysym.Home or Rxvt.keysym.End

Both quirky112 and puppy431 will work with:
Rxvt.keysym.0xFF50: \033[1~
Rxvt.keysym.0xFF57: \033[4~
.

/bin/e3 crashes after applying strip command to reduce its size.
By the way, strip of Puppy 4.3.1 has the same problem.

PostPosted: Sat 29 May 2010, 07:03    Post subject: Please apply shinobar's shell script to fix a bug in JWM  

After adding a suitable unicode TTF file to Quirky, SeaMonkey displays unicode characters. However, it does not display unicode characters in its title bar. For example, if you visit http://map.yahoo.co.jp/, you cannot see the last 2 characters of "Yahoo!地図" displayed in title bar of SeaMonkey even if Android's TTF is added to the system.

In fact, this problem was solved by shinobar 11 months ago. Please apply his shell script, whose URL is http://shino.pos.to/linux/puppy/jwm_font_repair.sh, to fix a bug in JWM's setting causing this problem.

libGL.so is needed to run Google Earth for Linux 5.1 and it is not included in Quirky.
Is it to be added to Quirky in the near future?

yes can be added to quirky in the near future or as soon as you go to the puppy package manager and install mesa "opengl and dri".

Subject description: q112 observations
 

(using a butchered q110 savefile copy, so..) xdeltas were fine

The default html viewer(s) in /usr/local/bin .. probably just as well that 'basic' invokes the almost-forgotten-in-quirky/wary PuppyBrowser and surfer seems to be only referenced in /usr/sbin/delayedrun (since it can't handle file:// and other address forms as-is). Too bad, since even the new SM is molasses-slow to load initially for me. Did .mht extension ever get properly mime'd? I see it has at least a different 'icon-look' if that portends anything Neutral and set/run does better than sendto did previously (.mht is more a webpage archive than plaintext). More local help is a good thing imo (SM local help has returned and there's some other things which don't simply give an online link) even if it adds to the size - judgement call there.

For me it's about 4-5 minutes into uptime that idle settles (looking at xload). SM takes 20 sec to load, old Opera10a about 14 sec, Arora about 9 sec and surfer almost instantly (but times shorten after initial cold loads so that's simply an offhand observation).

Drat, system just froze (was checking the soundfiles in /usr/share/audio with defaultaudioplayer pmusic and the last one played was beep_high.wav when it just froze with clockstop etc in pekwm - no way out except hardoff Neutral ). All oki in w020 .. probably just a fluke instance in q112 since freeze not repeatable on return (fwiw, fresh partial xerrs.log in tar.gz attached).

ps - UTC hwclock is maybe more for server? I used swatchtime for an unambiguous 'universal' time-reference at one point (but it never really caught on since it is unambiguous in it's division-format). Offsets can lead to misunderstandings occasionally (some few 'special cases' in DST whenifas observed regionally) .. edit posted @996 (;

Subject description: quirky 1.2rc
 

I think, 95% of the users are unaware of the clock setting local/UTC and will be confused and won't know what to choose.

I think it's a too technical a question to ask.

Before the discussion on the issue, recently, I wasn't aware of this difference either.
