Hi,
First, thanks to technosaurus, the version 8.4.13 works great on my pc, with sdl mixer on puppy 412, I don't even have to update alsa-lib to get sounds,

Gcompris 8.4.13, and dependencies:
gnucap + gnuchess + python + pysqlite + pycairo + pygobject +pygtk + SDL + SDL mixer +tuxpaint
to be found here:
http://ljfr2.perso.neuf.fr/pet_packages-4/general/
It's really nice since SDL is already required by tuxpaint anyway.

regards,

NB: I disabled gnet, and on puppy 412, still have to update:
-glib to version 2.18.3 (mainly to get libgio)
-sqlite to version 3.6.12
which you can get here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-4/

Thanks,

Hello,
I am quite new to puppy linux and i would like to add gcompris to my puppy linux setup.

I would like to add the site described in this topic to the list of repository:
http://ljfr2.perso.neuf.fr/pet_packages-4/general/

I could not find the Packages-db-file to add to the PET_REPOS variable in /root/.packages/DISTRO_PET_REPOS, i.e.:

Code:
PET_REPOS='[long line with official repositories] http://ljfr2.perso.neuf.fr|http://ljfr2.perso.neuf.fr/pet_packages-4/general/|What-Packages-db-file-do-i-type-here'


Am i mistaken to consider ljfr2.perso.neuf.fr a pet repository?
If so, could someone indicate me the procedure to install gcompris on a vanilla 4.3.1 puppy (on internal hard disk)?

Thanks in advance

Hi Cloud2006,

This is not a package repository, this is just me compiling some packages and putting them on a personal page, there is no Packages-db-file (but I may check how this work).

To get Gcompris, you need to download and install:
gcompris-8.4.13-i486.pet
gcompris_NLS-8.4.13-i486.pet (optional, localization for other languages)
gnucap-0.35-i486.pet
gnuchess-5.07-i486.pet
libpaper-1.1.23+nmu1-i486.pet
pycairo-1.6.4-i486.pet
pygobject-2.20.0-i486.pet
pygtk-2.12.0-i486.pet
pysqlite-2.5.5-i486.pet
Python-2.5.4-i486.pet
SDL-1.2.13-i486.pet
SDL_image-1.2.7-i486.pet
SDL_mixer-1.2.8-i486.pet
SDL_Pango-0.1.2-i486.pet
SDL_ttf-2.0.9-i486.pet
tuxpaint-0.9.21-i486.pet
tuxpaint-stamps-2009.06.28-i486.pet (optional)

You could get them from my page, http://ljfr2.perso.neuf.fr/pet_packages-4/general
...or compile them from source, I set my configuration options
inside a readme file if necessary,

regards,

Thanks for the fast answer ljfr,

It worked fine Smile ... i am just a bit too used to software repositories to get things done manually, my bad.

This is what I find about those Packages-db-files, and here is a link to an official one.

Thanks again.

PostPosted: Tue 09 Mar 2010, 08:48    Post subject: Spanish sounds for gcompris  

Hi.

I successfully installed gcompris on Puppy 4.3.1 following your instructions. Works perfectly. However, although I installed the localizations files package you provide, I' m still missing some Spanish sounds (mostly sounds of letters and numbers in some exercises). I tried to get them from a .deb package (the stable branch) but seems that the version they are using is not the same.

Any idea how can I get and install those Spanish sound files? And where do they go, if I have to install them manually?

Hi,

You could try the package from debian:
http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/gcompris-sound-es
You might even try sound files from earlier version (9.2.2 in debian sid) since Filenames seem identical.

Where do they go? click on "list of files" on this debian's site (or after installation browse the relevant file inside your /root/.packages folder).

If it is not working, you may also get them from gcompris official site:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gcompris/files/
or ask forum member sidders, I think he tried gcompris in spanish.

regards,

Hi.

I just realized that the Spanish files are actually included and installed with the gcompris_NLS-8.4.13-i486.pet package. However, I'm still having problems with them playing back in GCompris. For example, if I select the game where I have to listen to the name of the letter and press the corresponding button, the name of the letter is never heard most of the time. In other words, I get the "Press the letter..." part in Spanish but the name of the letter which is to be pressed is never heard. Sometimes I have to press the "lips" button to be able to hear the name of the letter.

Any ideas on how to solve this? Everything else is working perfectly.

Thanks for the help so far.

Hi,

I faced the same problem a while ago (on the click on the letter activity) and filled the bug here:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=580498
the current status is resolved and indeed it works on version 9.2, I don't know if it comes from the program or sound files, but anyway you could try sounds from version 9 or higher.

Hi,

For your information, Gcompris version 9.x.x fullscreen mode is buggy in JWM, it seems a JWM issue (it works fine with other wm). Using a patched 492 JWM doesn't help...
