This application apparently misses some codecs.

I tried to convert a small MPG to AVI with xvid and mp3 codec. No dice. It seems to be missing the needed codecs. You might want to look into the same program in Lucid 528. Seems to have no problems there.

I never had any luck with this program at all! Ever - not with any version! And it bothers me. Any reports, fixes or help I can get in this area will be great... For example, it also reports that lame is not installed, but it is.

Currently Akita is using a version that is built into 'bashbox' .. I may use another one, simply cos others are i18n'd, and I already have a few ffconvert.mo lying around...

Usually Puppy has mtpaint screen shot, which is fine for entire screen shots.

Akita does not have Tcl/Tk - only 'jimtcl', a tiny, cut-down alternative. Mtpaint-snapshot might still work with jimtcl...

Akita contains PupSnap and that has much more options.
But...it is not retaining the settings from a previous shot. And with 8 positions to fill in, that is a bit cumbersome to do for each and every little shot.

I have PM'd radky about this, it's been 'annoying' me for a long time.
I reaaaally hope we can solve this, the app is great, just needs to remember settings!

Tried the /usr/local/pupsnap directory, but couldn't find anything where one would change the default settings.

I think there are none to edit.

No it isn't in German. That's okay with me, but if that was your goal, it still needs some fixing.

You are right. This FFconvert is tricky. Most Puppies don't get it right, yet 528 did, for whatever reason, at least with xvid+mp3.
However, don't worry too much. Anybody with serious video work will anyway use that other OS, that we don't want to mention here. Laughing

Yes it is a great little application and could do much more than mtscreenshot. If...the remembering can be implemented. Appreciate your work on this.

I tried out 'Akita'
It has the fastest menus I have seen!!
My biggest wish is for a windows list,
so I can quickly see a list of all my open windows.
I may have a huge number open.

Is there any software to do that. The ICEWM has
a tray icon to list the ROX windows.

Maybe someone who knows how to use gtrayicon can do it - it is installed in Akita... OR puptray, the customisable BaCon tray tool... All would be needed is a bash/shell script that monitors open ROX processes, greps the paths and dirs, and updates the puptray config file with the results...

pppoe is gettexted and has Russian mo-file in the archive. You can translate the pot file in poedit and create po and mo files for your language, then place mo-file with name pppoe.mo in /usr/share/locale/??/LC_MESSAGES/

Hi rodin.s, thanks for clearing that up for me!!

While you're here, can I get something clear for myself...

When using poeditor, to make new translations,
I must open the .pot file, and NOT the .po files... right?
What are the .po files for?

Shinobar's ffconvert is very similar to my woo-ff frontend to ffmpeg (just the graphical interface is more complicated ...errr... um developed) and as such, depends on the underlying ffmpeg. Unfortunately more capability means more dependencies or a larger ffmpeg (if the dependencies are compiled in statically) I would suggest trying different compiles of ffmpeg + deps ... there are a few in the puppy4 repository @ ibiblio and several in the forum. If you've never compiled it, just let me warn you, just the config options can be complicated ... figure in trying to support older pcs without sacrificing too much performance or blow up the size and it seriously makes you see the advantages of the plugins in gstreamer.

That's awesome, I tried running strip on a dir, before rebuilding as an SFS, but it crashed my PC - had to reboot.. I think it had something to do with absolute symlinks pointing to files in my actual filesystem... But I'm gonna try yours today Very Happy Thanks

b/c I used the output of file, symlinks are ignored so it _shouldn't_ follow any absolute symlinks
Don't worry about Zip files, afaik the only ones are jar files in mozilla addons

PostPosted: Thu 25 Aug 2011, 15:13    Post subject: pot and po files  

pot-file is a template. It has only English lines. In poedit you should select File>New catalog from POT file... Then new po-file for particular language will be created. It could be named for example ru.po for Russian. Than you make a translation in poedit and while saving file ru.mo is created which should be renamed as for example pppoe.mo and placed to /usr/share/.../LC_MESSAGES. po-file is for the particular language translation it text form. When you want to change something in translation you edit po-file.
And another useful option is Catalog>Update from POT file... When original script is changed or updated, pot file is changed too. But you don't need to create new po-file and translate again. You just open old po-file and update it from pot file.
POT file itself is created from bash script with gettext by command:
Code:
xgettext -L shell script.sh -o script.pot

If you want just look at it in terminal do this:
Code:
xgettext -L shell script.sh -o -

And for few scripts to be in one pot file:
Code:
xgettext -L shell  -o script.pot  -f list_of_scripts.txt

Thanks for the info rodin.s, that is much clearer now Very Happy I will get 'stuck in' and have a go completing the missing translations (mostly french, some spanish)..

I compiled ffmpeg too many times.. I had a long battle with VLC not liking my new ffmpeg, and not building on it... So I am using the same as Wary 5.1.x ... Excellent multimedia support is a goal of Barrys for Wary, and I like having the Wary mplayer from PPM as an option... I think changing ffmpeg would affect the VLC and mplayer pets in the PPM, right?

I will have to check if ffconvert works in Wary - I would guess it's easier to tweak ffconvert than ffmpeg - not even thinking about keeping VLC and mplayer happy...

I've yet to learn anything about gstreamer, seems quite 'large' to me! But then I was looking at ubuntu blogs and pages...

Also it is possible to unpack mo files and turn it into po files (to convert binary to text form).
Code:
msgunfmt usr_sbin.mo -o -
to see in terminal
Code:
msgunfmt usr_sbin.mo -o usr_sbin.po

I'd prefer all settings to be saved, once a shot is taken. With the next one, I can just change the file name, maybe the location, but retain all other 6 or 7 positions.

Tried the /usr/local/pupsnap directory, but couldn't find anything where one would change the default settings.

Hi wuwei and sc0ttman,

The current release of Akita has an older version of PupSnap (1.5). The problems you noted in the older release were due to corruption of the pupsnap.rc file when a user exited PupSnap by Alt-F4 or by clicking the X in the title bar. This prevented normal updating of the rc file. The current version of PupSnap (1.6.1) has an enhanced launch wrapper which allows automatic recovery from aborted PupSnap sessions, and prevents corruption of the rc file. I've tested PupSnap-1.6.1 in Akita, and it seems to work just fine.

Thanks for your interest in PupSnap. Smile

Yes it does! Very Happy I noticed you cannot simply type a new directory - you must click the button to the right and use the chooser, but that's fine with me! Love it.. Such an easy update/fix Smile

And yes, by all means send me your new sysinfobox Smile

I corrected the problem in Zathura with spaces in
filenames and folder names. I now have a new
version 1.8

If you click 'Open PDF' thinking that you are opening a folder
you get a blank window. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
