I compiled a version of mtpaint especially for akita
(with the compile options I used) along with
the other pet packages that should be upgraded
in the next version.


You can get it here
http://www.datafilehost.com/download-bb14ad2d.html


________________________________________________

When I tried to make a compressed archive from a folder
in akita I tried the 'add to archive' right click. I found it
very confusing. Wouldn't it be better to do a straight
conversion of a folder into an archive.

_________________________________________________

I went to the repo to install fbreader_en-0.12.1-i486-akita.pet

but to get it to launch I had to create a link called
libsqlite3-3.6.12.so.0

Great thanks Don, I'll download now.. In which Puppy did you compile it?
I have not yet updated the Akita devx, so cannot compile some things, without a bit of extra work...

That's exactly what should happen - I have noticed that the .tar.gz and some others work fine, but some don't... I might just use a script that makes a tar.gz, cos as you say, it's annoying that some formats don't work.

Yep, already listed as fixed in a previous post. the symlink will be in the main SFS next BETA...

I always compile in lighthouse 443 (which is puppy431).
Then I check to see if the binary will run in recent puppies.

Fortunately the recent versions of mtpaint's source code
will compile correctly in puppy431 for a wide variety of Puppies.

There was a period a year ago when that wasn't true,
but Dmitri made changes to his compile script.

I made two mistakes with Quick Launch

1) I forgot to change version number

2) I forgot to put your wallpaper program on the
list of applications generated. I must have been tired the
night I put the package together Embarassed

Hopefully I did it right this time...

PostPosted: Wed 02 Nov 2011, 16:00    Post subject: Akita Linux Beta 4
Subject description: uploaded nov 2nd, 2011
 

I have uploaded a new Beta version..

Akita Linux Beta 4

It is 1.2mb smaller than the last one Smile Still loads to remove, if anyone wanted.
There's still a bit of work to do, but nearly done.

Download Mirrors: akita-linux-beta4.iso (88.46mb)

(Remember, Akita linux is, for now, still using sfs3, k2.6.25.16, just like puppy 4.1, 4.2 and 4.2.1)

In general, these changes have been made:

- improved Puppy Package Manager (PPM), still not great, but OK..
- new 'Akita' repo available in PPM
- many more right click options, particularly office doc conversion
- many more internationalised (18n'd) scripts: sfsconvert, pupdial, pgprs, etc
- loads of German, Spanish and Russian translations added
- updated many programs: ROX, Psip32, VLC-GTK, mtpaint, SNS, radkys, zigberts, etc
- added PupCamera, mousecheck, other recent things

I've been using beta4 for the last day and
everything has been working nicely on my old IBM desktop.

You even put in the conversion of html to text right click.

One minor irritant is Barry Kauler's 'fixPuppyPin' script
which is supposed to move the three right desktop icons
to the right edge of screen doesn't work properly.

I should look more closely at the script to understand it better.

PostPosted: Fri 04 Nov 2011, 17:17    Post subject: pup_event_frontend_d  

I do not have desktop icons displayed when ROX-pinboard is enabled. I have this in terminal:
Code:
# pup_event_frontend_d
/sbin/pup_event_frontend_d: eval: line 1: syntax error: unterminated quoted string

I don't know what does it mean.
Yaf-splash doesn't support UTF-8 so messages of pupdial could not be read in Russian. Maybe it should be replaced with gtkdialog-splash script.

rodin.s - not sure what happened there, but I got icons up, in all locales, no issues, try running 'toggle-rox-desktop' in the terminal..

I've been testing the gtkdialog-splash that shinobar posted in the Slacko RC thread, replaced yaf-splash with the script he posted - it seems to work fine, although I dislike the fixed width... Am attempting to add a 'width' option...

_____________

Don - I've not look into FixPuppyPin, but maybe steal one from another recent Puppy and test it, I don't have any widescreen stuff to test it on..
___________________

starhawk - I like a lot of the wallpapers at vladstudio.com, if you can get a nice 'Akita Linux' title up in the upper left, remove the vladstudio watermark and reduce the images to a reasonable filesize then that would be great! (or any others u like)

Aside from that you can test and improve any packages you download in the Akita repo, that would also be great...

Been thinking... I'm a little skittish about rebranding other folks' wallpapers... but if you PM me a general idea of what the intended look is here, I'll be more than happy to cook up some originals.
