Did you include jemimah's patches for media/mnt and the help browser? If so, then it would solve bigpup's issue with the help in all gtk apps.

I think that John Murga has made changes to the Forum recently. It keeps on logging me out. Anyone else got this problem?

From the forum FAQ
Quote:
Why do I get logged off automatically?
If you do not check the Log me in automatically box when you log in, the board will only keep you logged in for a preset time. This prevents misuse of your account by anyone else. To stay logged in, check the box during login. This is not recommended if you access the board from a shared computer, e.g. library, internet cafe, university cluster, etc.


What I am reporting is a change in behaviour of the forum.

Sometimes it logs me out only a few minutes after logging in. Even if I am active on the forum.

The previous behaviour was that it would log me out after a certain period of inactivity. I don't recall how long, maybe half an hour. It was a generous period of inactivity.

I used to have this problem with my Telstra mobile broadband connection. I did report the problem to John, but it never got fixed. After I changed to Optus, the problem went away.
Until now, suddenly I have that problem with Optus also.

Testing precise 5.4.0.90.

Looks like the session saving problem is solved, I'm unable to reproduce it now.

Problems with gdb and gio modules persist.

I'll continue testing and report back more. Smile


Do you mean even after installing your PET:

Precise still has module loading problems?

Finished downloading precise 5.4. Testing it reveals several problems.

On first boot it refused to save the session. After asking for save file name it rebooted without saving session. Next time I ran wmreboot in terminal but this time it worked properly. Confused Will try again to reproduce the problem.

Display, opengl and internet is working properly. Posting from there now.

In devx gdb doesn't work.
Code:

# gdb
gdb: error while loading shared libraries: libpython2.7.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
#

Installing libpython2.7_2.7.3-0ubuntu3_i386.deb fixes gdb.

Also gio has problems using modules. It's a glib bug and affects some other distros as well. See here.

Edit: Didn't see precise 5.4.0.90.


Thanks, libpython2.7 will be in the devx.

PostPosted: Thu 08 Nov 2012, 00:46    Post subject: Infrastructure mods to facilitate addition of Frisbee  

Barry,
Testing of my integrated Frisbee is progressing well. Although I am not ready to submit it for additon to the puppy package library, the infrastructure changes are straightforward and would simplify users' and developers' addition of Frisbee.

Please consider updating woof with the first four packages posted here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=662518#662518

The fifth (dhcpcd-dropwait) can also be added to the puppy package library, although substituting it in woof for dhcpcd could benefit connection stability for all network managers.

My main concern, though, is that the woof-resident changes be made, including the addition of a slot for a separate wag_profiles package. Please see the description associated with those packages at the above link. I recognize that it is late in the cycle, but ask for it because it would avoid users needing to modify to puppy infrastructure.

Richard,
It is too late in the development cycle for Precise 5.4.1. This is almost ready to be released, and anyway the intention was bug-fixes only relative to 5.4.

Infrastructure changes to support Frisbee can be considered after 5.4.1 is released.

Once upon a time (version 1.04) I have used it much.

Yes, that was a long time ago. If I recall rightly, there were two of them, one was written in tcl/tk, the other gtk1.2.

Which was why we had to leave them behind.

Hi Barry,
I have searched, found and installed another tool:
my console wrote:
# regetron
Regetron! The regex teaching SHELL.
Type your regex at the prompt and hit enter. It'll show you the
lines that match that regex, or nothing if nothing matches.
Hit CTRL-d to quit (CTRL-z on windows).

installed:
Code:
git clone git://gitorious.org/regetron/regetron.git
cd regetron
python setup.py install

like advised at

No, I used the original, unmodified source. I'll check out the patch soon.

Till now abiword is the only program I find with help not working, irrespective of manually compiled glib or precise glib. "Operation not supported" is the warning printed on terminal. Is this problem you are talking about?

But running gdb on abiword reveals it uses its own c++ functions to implement help.
Code:

Breakpoint 1, 0xb70207f0 in g_log () from /lib/libglib-2.0.so.0
(gdb) bt
#0  0xb70207f0 in g_log () from /lib/libglib-2.0.so.0
#1  0x083affb6 in XAP_UnixAppImpl::openURL(char const*) ()
#2  0x08189b9f in helpLocalizeAndOpenURL(char const*, char const*, char const*)

...


So maybe you are talking about something else I didn't get...

No, I meant even in precise 5.4.0.90 I have to install the pet to correct the problem.

The problem is solved after installing the pet.

there's a bug when installing .deb files. the categories section of the .desktop file in /usr/share/applications gets changed!
this has also been noted by Jejy69 http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=81852

for example in the openshot.deb, /usr/share/applications/openshot.desktop looks like this
Code:
Categories=GNOME;GTK;AudioVideo;Video;AudioVideoEditing;

after installing though it looks like this
Code:
Categories=Utility


same with the deadbeef.deb from
Code:
Categories=AudioVideo;Player;GTK;
to
Code:
Categories=Utility


this is making nearly everything installed from the ppm end up in the 'utility' menu

Right. The goal is to get the implementation into the woof structure for all puppies, not precise 5.4.1. Thanks for clarifying that for me.

Glade interface designer doesn't work.
Code:

# glade
glade: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
#

Instead of adding gtk3 maybe it would be better to provide glade separately, as gtk3 could be large?

PostPosted: Thu 08 Nov 2012, 15:52    Post subject: Help with finding BlueGriffon  

Maybe I belong in the beginners forum, but I hope not. BlueGriffon is a wysiwyg website builder I'd like to try. It's popular so I expected it to be found with PPM --but nothing available. I appreciate any & all help.

** FREE CONCERT:
I'm discovering this puppy is excellent with multimedia. If anyone wants to hear Bob Dylan's (live & great) concert from last month at the Hollywood Bowl, here's the link from a DJ that I Twitter follow.

This latest version of precise does not recognize my audio chip. I tried all the steps...what information to I need to post to allow someone to either tell me how to fix the problem, or not to continue the effort.

Thanks

To save you the hunt I've attached the glib patch I use in Slacko-beta series based on slackware-14.0. This is based directly on jemimah's work.
