Subject description: quickpet for precise
 

Note: If you have quickpet 0.2 or above, there is an update button in 'help' ,that you can use to get the latest version

this is a spin of quickpet for precise puppy,



quickpet and slickpet were well liked by users, enabling them to easily install popular packages.

i love precises PPM, and think Barry has done an amazing job improving it, speeding up dependency checking, speeding up updating the repos (this now takes under a minute as opposed to 20+ mins on lucid) and making it more compatible with the ubuntu repos than lucid was.

some users find it a little intimidating though and just want easy access to a few popular programs, so i've had a go at making a quickpet for precise.

First impression is nice. I could provide those datafile host et mediafire files in upup-precise repo. First I need confirmation that they all work. There is some overlapping things also. VLC probably has qt libs included. That VLC version had subtitles working, Billtoo compiled one ?

Smplayer suggests to use Ubuntu Precise qt libs, I didnt use them when I compiled Smplayer so I dont know the compabilty.

Fix the Mutimedia to Multimedia in the quickpet script.

Up to date Firefox you will get as Canonical version from PPM after you update PPM. That is nice way to get the latest Firefox easily. It wont be updatable , probably. Only by installing new version by PPM again. In good and bad.

Really nice alpha version in quickpet spirit. There is the never ending update cycle problem though.

I have now uploaded to the upup precise repo your external hosted apps. Excluding the vlc pet. I do have my qt apps separated so that they need just qt-4.8.2.sfs (renamed as that) and then you install the compiled qt apps, which comes without qt libs in my repo.

Load qt-4.8.2.sfs and then as many qt app as you want.

Vlc pet has its own qt libs, so I didnt upload it now. It works great though, subtitles are working, so it has been compiled right, which is rare.

I did change couple of upper case named app to lower case name, like Opera to opera, they are now all lower case named. It helps browsing the repo. I try to get rid of all upper case named stuff.

I have added also new slimboat browser to the repo. It comes with its own libs in /opt and so it does not mess with other libs. It is qt libs based webkit browser. There is thread about it in murga-forum. There seems to be fans for it. For me it looks like and behaves like Qupzilla.

I have Trolltech file in Upup Precise which makes qt apps lookout better. I did add that Trolltech file to the slimboatbrowser pet.

I don't know if you include a quckpet icon or not in the pet, but here is s snippet that works for placing an icon on the desktop in the pinstall.sh, it's from the "browse as spot" program I wrote a looong time ago, but the idea is there.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
#pinstall.sh for Browsesafe 20110424

icon() #sets icon on desktop
{
echo "<?xml version=\"1.0\"?>
<env:Envelope xmlns:env=\"http://www.w3.org/2001/12/soap-envelope\">
<env:Body xmlns=\"http://rox.sourceforge.net/SOAP/ROX-Filer\">
 <PinboardAdd>
   <Path>/usr/sbin/browsesafe</Path>
    <X>224</X>
    <Y>224</Y>
   <Label>browsesafe</Label>
 </PinboardAdd>
</env:Body>
</env:Envelope>"  | rox -R

 echo "<?xml version=\"1.0\"?>
<env:Envelope xmlns:env=\"http://www.w3.org/2001/12/soap-envelope\">
 <env:Body xmlns=\"http://rox.sourceforge.net/SOAP/ROX-Filer\">
  <SetIcon>
   <Path>/usr/sbin/browsesafe</Path>
    <Icon>/usr/share/icons/browsesafe.png</Icon>
   </SetIcon>
  </env:Body>
</env:Envelope>"  | rox -R

  gtkdialog-splash -bg thistle -timeout 12 -fontsize large -close box -text "NOTICE: Browsesafe has been installed. A desktop icon should have appeared alongside the 'chat' icon, for convenient starting of browsesafe."

[ -f /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/globicons ] && cp -f /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/globicons /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/

}
export -f icon
#######SNIP#######

#other stuff goes here


Also, I have a few icons in a package.. just crack it open and retrieve them. You'll have to get vicmz to make you a neon one though Wink

With a bit of creativity you could detect the current icon theme and even place the right one in the pinstall.sh, or close to it.

hi 01micko, thanks for posting that, i was thinking of trying to get an icon on the desktop. unfortunately i can't get the pinstall script for the icon to work, not sure what i'm missing, i'll look into it further.

666philb. I tested the stripped ( qt libs separated ) vlc-2.0.5. In my tests it worked ok, also with subtitles, with qt-4.8.2.sfs. Vlc-2.0.5 has been uploaded to the upup repo.
There is also vlc-2.0.3 in the upup repo. That one has been compiled by Billtoo, correctly. It has dvb tuner and subtitles support, and it handles fine different formats. So....there is from what to choose.

Quickpet-0.2 looks great !!!
There really is now browsers from to choose. Also there is now great selection of other popular apps to download.

Thank you of your work with Quickpet. Many puppy users appreciate it.

Regardig from your above quote I hope I understand you well by playing kind of Santa Claus ?

Maybe not, but if so, here is my list, don't know whether they are, or might -become- popular or not,

- Digikam
- Google Earth 7 and its additional KML
- K3B or Brasero, anyway the one with which you can make an iso from a cd (not meant for remastering like isomaster)
- Clonezilla (or is this something standishing alone ?)
- Dupfinder
(not popular but probably underestimated as it can gather a lot of information on duplicates. Besides probably got nothing to do with ubuntu, but asking does not hurt, replying sometimes does Mad

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=68286

'm such a supernoob even don't know what is symlinking, nor how to run ".sh". Bad, yes.

Or maybe you could give me a clue how to compile pets. I thought at first that since Precise making pets would be as easy as making popcorn ... (when I saw your xmbc ..) probably not.

When I did a run in Jejy's test "apt-get" deriv' I found that the packages returned were more complete than in the original precise .. but howto turn it onto a pet ...

hi nancy reagan

sorry it took a while to reply .. i've been quite busy!

digikam is huge 198mb! so i'm not adding that, k3b i might add, athough i've no cd drive at the mo to test it. and clonzilla seems to be something you run from a disk.

i've added the new googleearth 7 though, and also a link to dupfinder on the useful .pets tab.

i've not made a new pet of quickpet as you can update quick_pet precise using the update option in the menu Smile

the best way to understand .pets is to look inside one. install the rightclick options pet... then right click on a pet to extract it
