I compiled vlc-2.0.3 and qt-4.8.2 in precise puppy.

vlc is about a 12mb download and qt-4.8.2 is about 45mb.

The download link for qt is:

The download link for vlc is:

Nice, but I won't host these on ibiblio nor can they be added to PPM, as they need to be split into EXE, DEV, DOC and NLS pets.

gimp-2.8.2-1-precise.sfs is available.

Based on the gimp


how do you know if one doesn't follow the forum???

General and easier for all puppies:
the ability to search & install applications. Why not centralize search on applications' name, its version and finally possible sources & install mode.

A CSV file can do that; for instance:
GIMP;2.8.2;pet; i686;URL1;URL2;URL3; ....
GIMP;2.6.12;sfs; i386;URL1;URL2;URL3; ....

1. What is the full model name of your printer?

2. What driver are you using when you install the printer in CUPS? The built-in Gutenprint driver? An HPLIP package?

3. What is the exact nature of the problem? Does CUPS not detect the printer? Does it print garbage? From a CUPS test page? From an application?

4. Does it work when connected directly by USB?

@ feelsub,

Devs, having spent long hours developing applications and discussing them on active Puplet threads, are too exhausted to note their existence on the "Additional Applications" sub-forum, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/index.php?f=63. Fortunately, the Puppy Forum is a do-acracy. A users, who finds something useful not cataloged on the Additional Applications Sub-Forum can, him-or-herself, write a short, descriptive post with a link to the post(s) containing the application's discussion and download link. If the user thinks about it. Or he or she can do what the rest of us do: complain about the lack of organization and fall back to a well-minded, http://www.wellminded.com/puppy/pupsearch.html, search to find something.

BarryK can you remove transmisson or include the last of the gtk2 series transmission-2.60-i686-percise.pet, This pet has libevent-2.0.20-stable-i686.pet included. this transmission-2.60-i686.pet dose not include libevent-2.0.20-stable-i686.pet.DEV,DOC and NLS for transmission and libevent are all in my repo http://www.mediafire.com/?mpv88jj3bp0m3.

the reason i ask is because i like to creates one big sfs with all the apps i want in it.sfs's that have the same app as the main sfs will not use the app from the custom sfs and will use the one in the main sfs, so it is like it is not present in my custom sfs.

You should NOT have installed your 5200 as a RAW printer. That's why you are getting garbage.

Under Make, select HP. Under Model, select Laserjet 5200.

I notice that you have the printer working in Slacko. Did you install it the same way? It may work there because this printer is Postscript-capable. But I don't know why Precise would behave differently.

In any case, RAW printing is intended for situations where the target printer is connected to another computer that will be responsible for formatting the print job. Your situation requires a driver or at least a PPD file.

Precise already has a Gutenprint driver for the 5200 built-in. Are you installing some other package?

I don't know. Like I said, this is not the standard way to use RAW.

If you want to set up your 5200n as an "official" HP Postscript printer, use the PET below. Delete your current printer and let CUPS discover it again.
HP_5200_PS_PPD-3.12.4.pet

As I understand it, you should use RAW in situations where another computer is responsible for formatting the print job to be compatible with the target printer. For example:

You are sending a print job from a Linux client to another Linux machine running a Samba server. The client will set up its printer as RAW because the server machine will do the formatting.
