There is a media problem that is occurring in using LH64-515. Others who may have experienced it may not have articulated it.

Because I feel its answer can help all PUP distro developers, I have posted it here.

Here to help

This problem, now, has raised its head in LightHouse64 515. The 514 media boots without issue (but, I have not used the laptop to write a save-session, yet.)


replied in that thread. Can you also please confirm whether or not LHP514 has the same problem?

Puppyt

I'm starting work on XPDF and PDF-Shuffler

PDF-Shuffler is kicking my but because its not been updated for so long its using pypoppler 0.01.10 and pypopler is on version 0.12.1 and does not work the same any more. Trying to hunt down an old copy of pypopler now. I'll make it an SFS and point it somewhere else so it does not hurt a install of a new version of pypopler.

as for now im calling it a nigh.

Oh and nice work getting your feet wet in pet making!!! fun stuff tracking down a depend on a depend on a depend eh ????

I cant remember the package(s) but a while back I had a fricking circle jerk. Package B depend on Package C Depend on Package B Depend on package C. OH the B-->C-->B loop depend hell. I finally found a thread about using a old package of B that did not Depend on C then you could build the New C off of the old B and then Build a New B.

And thats why being binary compatible with another distro is nice... when you get to that stage you can cheat and just grab both newer deps off the offical repo since they've already done the work. lol

It's not you, it's me...
Q5sys I wish I could give your XPDF pet and libt patch feedback commensurate with your help, but I have a 'perfect storm' of issues with my LH 5.14 system at present. I'm really rushed with work and study/exams this week so on the weekend I will upgrade to a fresh 5.15 and give this a proper testing.
My wifi broadband from home has been choked for going over my 8GB monthly limit (&#$%) so perhaps that has something to do with the strange error I receive (with repeated download attempts) to libt1.pet: "Error, package libt1.pet failed to install".
This is my MD5 checksum- 527aae3fe682e0f32f79946f3bf05d32 - does it correspond with what you have?
Well I extracted the pet anyways and copied your files to the relevant 'usr/lib64/' and 'var/log/packages' and badda-bing, badda-boom, XPDF is up and running instantly! But all is not so sweet - some files open cleanly without problem, but others reveal that I haven't been pointed correctly to the fonts directory (I guess). This from console:
Code:
bash-4.1# xpdf
Error: No display font for 'Courier'
Error: No display font for 'Courier-Bold'
Error: No display font for 'Courier-BoldOblique'
Error: No display font for 'Courier-Oblique'

Error: No display font for 'Symbol'
Error: No display font for 'Times-Bold'
Error: No display font for 'Times-BoldItalic'
Error: No display font for 'Times-Italic'

Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-helvetica-medium-r-normal--12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-courier-medium-r-normal--12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct

Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-times-medium-r-normal--16-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct

...so, please don't waste any more time on me and my Gordian Knot of issues - I'll put it to the sword on the weekend with a complete reboot of TaZoC's update. (Erm. downloaded from anywhere else other than home Smile ) Again, many thanks for your help!

Hey puppyt:

most of your issues is with your xpdfrc file. you have to point the program to the locations of the fonts. I installed the fonts to opt and now have xpdfrc woking.

Code:
#========================================================================
#
# Sample xpdfrc file
#
# The Xpdf tools look for a config file in two places:
# 1. ~/.xpdfrc
# 2. in a system-wide directory, typically /usr/local/etc/xpdfrc
#
# This sample config file demonstrates some of the more common
# configuration options.  Everything here is commented out.  You
# should edit things (especially the file/directory paths, since
# they'll likely be different on your system), and uncomment whichever
# options you want to use.  For complete details on config file syntax
# and available options, please see the xpdfrc(5) man page.
#
# Also, the Xpdf language support packages each include a set of
# options to be added to the xpdfrc file.
#
# http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/
#
#========================================================================

#----- display fonts

# These map the Base-14 fonts to the Type 1 fonts that ship with
# ghostscript.  You'll almost certainly want to use something like
# this, but you'll need to adjust this to point to wherever
# ghostscript is installed on your system.  (But if the fonts are
# installed in a "standard" location, xpdf will find them
# automatically.)

fontFile Times-Roman      /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/n021003l.pfb
fontFile Times-Italic      /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/n021023l.pfb
fontFile Times-Bold      /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/n021004l.pfb
fontFile Times-BoldItalic   /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/n021024l.pfb
fontFile Helvetica      /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/n019003l.pfb
fontFile Helvetica-Oblique   /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/n019023l.pfb
fontFile Helvetica-Bold      /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/n019004l.pfb
fontFile Helvetica-BoldOblique   /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/n019024l.pfb
fontFile Courier      /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/n022003l.pfb
fontFile Courier-Oblique   /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/n022023l.pfb
fontFile Courier-Bold      /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/n022004l.pfb
fontFile Courier-BoldOblique   /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/n022024l.pfb
fontFile Symbol         /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/s050000l.pfb
fontFile ZapfDingbats      /opt/xpdfrc/fonts/d050000l.pfb

# If you need to display PDF files that refer to non-embedded fonts,
# you should add one or more fontDir options to point to the
# directories containing the font files.  Xpdf will only look at .pfa,
# .pfb, .ttf, and .ttc files in those directories (other files will
# simply be ignored).

#fontDir      /opt/xpdfrc/fonts
#fontDir      /usr/share/fonts/75dpi
#fontDir      /usr/share/fonts/100dpi
#fontDir      /usr/share/fonts/encodings
fontDir      /usr/share/fonts/misc
#fontDir      /usr/share/fonts/OTF
#fontDir      /usr/share/fonts/TTF
#fontDir      /usr/share/fonts/Type1

#----- PostScript output control

# Set the default PostScript file or command.

psFile         "|lpr -Pmyprinter"

# Set the default PostScript paper size -- this can be letter, legal,
# A4, or A3.  You can also specify a paper size as width and height
# (in points).

psPaperSize      letter

#----- text output control

# Choose a text encoding for copy-and-paste and for pdftotext output.
# The Latin1, ASCII7, and UTF-8 encodings are built into Xpdf.  Other
# encodings are available in the language support packages.

textEncoding      UTF-8

# Choose the end-of-line convention for multi-line copy-and-past and
# for pdftotext output.  The available options are unix, mac, and dos.

textEOL      unix

#----- misc settings

# Enable t1lib, FreeType, and anti-aliased text.

enableT1lib      yes
enableFreeType      yes
antialias      yes

# Set the command used to run a web browser when a URL hyperlink is
# clicked.

#launchCommand  viewer-script
urlCommand   "defaultbrowser 'openURL(%s)'"


I'm still getting this error.
Code:
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-helvetica-medium-r-normal--12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-courier-medium-r-normal--12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-times-bold-i-normal--20-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-times-medium-r-normal--16-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct


This looks to be a xorg issue.

However you can ignore one of them:
Currently open issues

During startup of Xpdf the message Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-times-medium-
Quote:
r-normal--16-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct is displayed
This message can be safely ignored. This particular font is used only inside of the "About" window of Xpdf. It will be replaced in there by a default font. The display of PDF documents is not affected at all by this.
The solution will make the font settable via an Xresource.
The same behaviour can be observed on Linux systems.


At this point I'm hunting down a better looking alternative. I don't like how it looks IMO.

Is there any way to dim the backlight in lhp.

Or can anyone tell me how to find redshiftgui in lhp if it is available.

The screen is so bright that I have to go to a different OS in the evening for the sake of my eyes.

Thanks for any ideas.

Open terminal; then type "brightness-down" (or brightness-up if you want to make it brighter again). There is already a multmedia keybinding for this in sven; but it may not work with your particular laptop.

cheers!

I typed it in 4 times but still couldn't see any difference.

Do I need to install something from win7 which does work.

This is acer aspire one 756 - 11.6" 64bit.

Your laptop is probably too new and is not supported by the kernel. Or you may need to load certain kernel modules to activate that function (unlikely).

Open terminal and look whether there is a file called /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness. If there isn't, you're out of luck. If there is, look at the current value and try to change that to half of the original.

Good luck.

Yep HM70 Express chipset was released 2nd Quarter 2012
The current kernel in LHPUP is 3.03 Sep 16th 2011

I did not see the HM70 Express supported in the current release kernel 3.6.6

ya might be waiting a while as this chipset was released early and is slated by Intel to support its 2013 line of laptop processors.
