thanks shinobar, I already tested that one too... I seem to have problems in Akita with urxvt and UTF-8... urxvt won't show UTF-8 characters, but 'termit' is installed and that does work fine... Question

(I tested a lot of UTF-8 test pages from the internet, downloaded and online)

Also, on another note, it's not a big problem for me, I made a workaround, but I think SFS load 1.2 still fails when the path to the SFS file has a space, or ']' or '['...
..(and maybe others).. not sure..

Sub_title: a quick update...
 

Here are the changes I made to Akita, AFTER releasing Beta3...
They will be included in the next ISO (beta4)..

Code:
- better PPM dependency checking:
   - updated /root/.packages/livepackages5.txt:
      - added deps to xournal, should auto install required deps now
      - added mplayer as a dep to gnome-mplayer package
      - turned a few more packages to "on" - such as xorg-server, dmxproto
- fix for gnome-mplayer (from PPM):
      - added /var/lib/dbus/machine-id (hardcoded text file)
- added 'gnome-mplayer' and 'mplayershell' to defaults-chooser

- i18n "Theme   Manager" and "Network Shares" GUIs
      - reworked /usr/local/ql_gui to support locales
      - updated rcfiles, added more of them - for de, es, fr, ru
      - updated the DOTdesktop menu files, with translations
- fixed /usr/sbin/xserverwizard
      - the newer, updated version was broken for older pups, so I...
      - removed hardcoded paths to X, Xorg and Xvesa
      - removed some stuff that didn't work and wasn't needed

- added the "xload" CPU monitor to startup options
   - created rc.xload script in /etc/init.d
   - added swallow /etc/init.d/rc.xload to JWM tray
   - added group options in jwm-extra for xload
   - updated '/usr/sbin/startups' script, added xload entry, updated all startups.mo translation files
- fixed /etc/rc.pmconky (not used as yet - pmconky still disabled at each boot, in .xinitrc)

- added CLI .rtf file converter: /usr/bin/unrtf
- added ROX right-click options and new run action for RTF files
- added CLI backup util: /usr/local/bin/agedu

- fixed /usr/bin/jwm_menu_create
   - was missing the 'Desktop' category, had only 'X-Desktop'
   - added full path to icons in shutdown menu entries
- i18n'd PupShutdown (not radkys version, my own simpler version)
- updated /root/Startup/gtk-mnt-links, different names for symlinks (now no ']' or '[' included...)
- fixed libpoppler:
   - updated to latest w5 version, added more symlinks, required for xournal (from PPM)
   
- now with framebuffer enabled.. added a different 'vmlinuz', compiled by Keef .. thx :)
- updated boot options in menu.lst, uses 800x600x32 as default vga mode (vga=0x315)
- fixed quick_launch, added checks for missing folders, also updated locale info for keybindings

- improved CSV filetype support
   - added /usr/bin/csv2txt, converts csv for better readablility, outputs to text editor, support X and no X
   - added ROX right-click option for CSV files, which runs csv2txt
   - updated default Run Action for CSV (also now csv2txt)

PostPosted: Tue 27 Sep 2011, 14:42    Post_subject:  

there is a bug in jwm_tools scripts that I just figured out ... will require more time than I have right now to debug it but the basic solution is

replace
read LINE;

with

read LINE || [ "$LINE" ];

this is what is causing menu entries to end up in the wrong places and such
(test case - remove newlines from the end of a file)

I wrote about FBRreader here.

It seems to be a good app to open up many file formats,
and its smaller than abiword

Hi wuwei,
are you ready to climb another step on the learning curve Question
Code:
msgfmt jwmconfig_de.po

if no devx installed: command not found
Here is a pet which allowes msgfmt without devx:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=59142&start=5

I have been msgfmt'ing your jwmconfig_de.po (no other po file indirectory)
Code:
# msgfmt *.po
jwmconfig_de.po: warning: Charset "CHARSET" is not a portable encoding name.
                          Message conversion to user's charset might not work.
jwmconfig_de.po:93: end-of-line within string
jwmconfig_de.po:379: end-of-line within string
msgfmt: found 2 fatal errors
# msgfmt *.po
jwmconfig_de.po:93: end-of-line within string
jwmconfig_de.po:379: end-of-line within string
msgfmt: found 2 fatal errors
# msgfmt *.po
jwmconfig_de.po:379: end-of-line within string
msgfmt: found 1 fatal error
# msgfmt *.po
#

Changed CHARSET to UTF-8
corrected the missing double quotes and no error.

msgfmt *.po -o - > /usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/jwmconfig.mo

And you can immediately see your translations Smile

L

Edited: Your translation of tray as Leiste is brilliant ( I have used elsewhere Tablett, no so good Embarassed )


Okay, I am a little further.
It wasn't quite as easy to do this L18L, but with some manual fiddling I got it working. I could even see the result of the jwmconfig translation. Great so far.

Now next?
There are so many files that could be translated but too little time to do them all. Could someone then please point me to the ones most needed next?
Thanks guys, I see what I can do with them.

It would be great if you could have a go at any of those...

Hope I got the right files from the pets you quoted.
Theses files are attached in de version and I'd very much appreciate if you could rename and convert them as you need them.

Glad to be of service.

Hey sc0ttman!
Loving your Akita beta3. I'm currently having troubles with the Frisbee you had loaded in it - testing its automatic connectivity following through on an eduRoam issue that I'm working on providing a rough how-to (a noob's journey). Specifically I can copy the working wpa_supplicant.conf across from other pupplets on a given laptop (currently PolarPup3 and ExprimoX7 - both pemasu's) and on restart Frisbee is spinning. But not here in Akita, at the moment. Maybe I have 2 versions loaded and conflicting in the tray (there is the Frisbee aerial icon and the PuppyNetwork Manager (world+ puppy-connected) icon)? In the Frisbee dialogue, I can't get the "IP Address:" info even though it states "Connected to (BigPondXXXX)" beside it.
"IP Address:" is however revealed if I try Menu> Setup> Wizard> Network Wizard> Network Wizard (old default tool). If I try to save the new profile, or look at the "Edit wpa_supplicant.conf" from within Frisbee - the connectivity drops out and Frisbee fails to reconnect automatically. I don't get jemimah's pop-ups of "etho down" and "wlan down" in Akita like I see in other pupplets, but that's probably just reflecting the underlying misfire with Akita, perhaps? You probably are right across these issues with Frisbee2+Akita7 - I think I remember you mentioning some known incompatibilities in an earlier beta.

I had some hiccups at first as I had used my savefile from an earlier Akita, but with that deleted and a fresh boot, I can see that you have been incredibly busy with this project. I really like the menu arrangement and the choice of apps (working through those) and have got the tray looking great for laptop use (battery, cpu etc) - plus conky - which looks fab with the coloured fonts, by the way Smile. Keeping that! PupControl and Apps menu systems I really look forward to pupulating in due course - as with your Xbindkeys (err - what's "Rover"? doesn't seem to work for me - either from the menu or using Alt+space) to get all my fav M$(spit-toohey) shortcuts up. Overall looking "tight as" Smile. I appreciate very much the suite of rescue apps you've included (e.g., Memtest, swapfile manager, Pdisk, Pudd, Pbackup, Pmirror etc etc) which should help me develop good backup habits. I know I'll have fun with all those timers and alarms. Apart from the Frisbee issue, every thing looks absolutely hunky-dory and I look forward to using this (plus FireDog 3.6) with genuine intent in the coming months.

Many Thanks Smile

PS Any plans on making a FireDog-Aurora version?

Good, glad you like it! Smile

It might be a bit old, bit it's hacked a bit to run in pup4... Will have to look at updating, maybe.. There are a few updated pets on the forums, you could test those, maybe? I have no wireless to test - until I get my damn EeePC wifi working with 2.6.25.16.. Even ndiswrapper seems not to work!! (Not sure I got the right windows drivers though..)

Quote:

This may have something to do with the version of wpa_supplicant used.. Akita is using the same wpa_supplicant as Wary, so maybe try stealing it from there??

Quote:

(world+ puppy-connected) icon)?

The Frisbee and Network_tray apps should not cause problems when both are running.. But yes, it does look confusing and a bit messy.
I figured users of Frisbee would load its tray app, users of other network tools would load the other one..

I might PM 01micko, and see if his new Frisbee pet for Slacko might be of use to Akita. I really am a total novice when it comes to networking.. I got auto eth0 connect working (thanks to shinobar), and that's about it..

This is probably an unrelated issue from when I removed all references to gtk-splash, which is not insatlled in pup4 (or therefore Akita)... I should maybe have not been lazy and replaced gtk-splash with yaf-splash, where needed..

Quote:

I only got as far as integrating Frisbee into the network manager choices, as best as I could, but do not have the knowledge to adjust Frisbees inner workings - only the GUI and a few little tweaks.. But without real networking knowledge, I'm a bit stuck!

Good... You can thank Technosaurus for the menu, wuwei for Conky and many other users for all the apps!

Rover is a search tool, jemimah put it together... Type 'rover_run' in the terminal to see it.. The 'Menu>Filesystem>Find>Rover' menu entry works fine in my install.. But yes, I did notice that the xbindkeys shortcut is broken for some reason, I will fix that..

Actually, I was planning on upgrading the xbindkeys and xbindkeys_config setup, and adding as many of the laptop/netbook/Fn key friendly shortcuts as I can.. This will include fixing Rover.

Good, I hope to get the final version finished within a month or so..

STILL gotta do a QuickPet thing though... Embarassed

Quote:
PS Any plans on making a FireDog-Aurora version?

I've not yet checked out the latest Firefox versions... The trouble would be that, at the moment, Mozilla are updating so often in the same 6.x or 7.x or 8.x branches, that whatever version I go for, Mozilla will force an update, which wipes lots of Firedogs setup and settings. It may also make some addons not work, and so on.. But when FF7 or FF8 (or whatever) has a long-term stable version, I will make another Firedog, I think.

Speaking of browsers, I have tried and tried but cannot get a working "Google Chrome" .pet package - I really want to add 'Chrome' to the browser installer, and make it an option in the browser selection. Does anyone know of a WORKING chrome .pet or .tar.gz that works in Akita?

**EDIT:

As for QuickPet - I might simply create a single HTML page, that is opened using elinks.. The HTML page would contain:

- categorised packages (desktop, internet, fun, system, multimedia, etc)
- package names, file sizes, descriptions and download URL
- translations in French, German, Russian, Spanish

> Any objections to Akitas QuickPet being nothing more than an HTML page???

I have previously rewritten a lot of apps for bashbox to use dialog if @ console and xdialog if @ desktop. I recently recompiled mp (minimum profit text editor) with both curses and gtk support. If it is used as defaulttextviewer, then scripts can be desktop agnostic for edit operations as well.

That's great.. I had it installed before, but did not realise it worked without X too.. I will replace the MP I am using (which I am using a lot in combination with elinks, for various ROX right-click options).. So this is great! Cheers Smile

And I like the idea of dialog/Xdialog on X or no X ... It's great, so I'll have another look at bashbox, too.. Smile

I filed a bug report to pburn here
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=570021#570021

It turns out that it's a script that you wrote that
is confusing pburn.

It's in the Startup folder of both Akita and exprimo.

Could you look into the problem and
give an answer to Zigbert?
