PostPosted: Wed 13 Feb 2013, 05:27    Post subject:  ArchPup 13.2.2
Subject description: Place to report issues and present your ideas for next releases
 

http://sourceforge.net/projects/archpup/
-------------------------------------------------------------
ArchPup is a distribution built using packages from Arch Linux, with custom compiled kernel for aufs support, udev and
very minimal number of other packages with goal of preserving full support for pacman package manager. This operating
system is using Puppy Linux init boot system, has options for dynamic loading of additional sfs modules, making
personal file that allows saving your settings, but in every other aspect is much different than standard Puppy - it doesn't
have Puppy package manager installed, not using JWM (included is openbox) or rox file manager (instead you have spacefm).

Taking those differences into account, I believe Puppy Linux users any levels of experience should still feel comfortable using it,
as you have pacman GUI fronted called pacmanXG (see 2nd screenshot bellow), and most of standard applications like
web browser, file manager, audio and video players, pdf viewer etc. come pre-installed. Easy access to large software
repository with powerful but still simple pacman package manager, is something that is missing in standard Puppy Linux
and is reason for making and publicly announcing this iso.
-------------------------------------------------------------

Current changelog:
- moving to gtk3 (3.6.4), keep only minimal gtk2 libraries
- all qt applications are removed
- new gtk and openbox themes based on Radiance and SimpleX
- list of programs still using gtk2: firefox, gtkdialog, geany
- recompiled packages to use gtk3: spacefm, yad, l3afpad, sakura, lxtask, volumeicon-git, lxappearance, lxrandr, gpicview
- lxappearance is patched to show only gtk3 themes

Version 13.2.2 released 2013/02/19

- upgrade: geany to git_nightly_20130216
- QWinFF - upgrade to version: 0.1.8
- Up: transmission (2.77)

Thanks to help on Arch Linux forum I've managed to setup this repository http://code.google.com/p/archpup-repository/downloads/list
How to add archpup repository to pacman's database:
1. Open /etc/pacman.conf
2. Add this before the other ones (core,extra...)
Code:
[archpup]
Server = http://archpup-repository.googlecode.com/files

3. Type pacman -Sy in terminal
4. Install some of the included packages for a test:
pacman -S uget-gtk2 evince2-light

Those leafpad icons shouldn't be there, I guess you installed normal leafpad from Arch repository
and later this one I made.
I tested before posting and there was no problems installing this package

And rameshiyer if I am right please edit above post, it makes unnecessary ugly impression Wink

Subject description: error report while installation
 

you must be using the light xfce desktop. i haven't done extensive testing on that one..it's mostly for fun. i'm looking to improve on it and resolve these type of errors as they pop up. as of now though...you can get leafpad installed on the adrv-lightxfce_132.sfs by running the command:

Code:
pacman -Sf archpup-leafpad


This error doesn't come up in the full xfce sfs.

Success installing leafpad from the newly set archpup mirror Smile
A good job done.

Just to let you know that changing screen resolution with LXRandR doesn't stick after reboot/logout. Instead, I added the code below to /etc/X11/xorg.conf to have my monitor set to desired resolution (ie. 1440x900):
Code:
#Disable VGA1 output
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "VGA1"
Option "Ignore" "1"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Monitor0"
   VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
   ModelName    "Monitor Model"
   HorizSync    31.5-100
   VertRefresh  59-75
   #UseModes     "Modes0" #monitor0usemodes
   Option      "PreferredMode" "1440x900"
EndSection

Cheers.

Thanks for sharing that info smil99, might help someone else Very Happy
I'm now checking options on google code for allowed data capacity...

Storage quota
total 4096 MB
Maximal upload size
200 MB
It allows to set project committers and contributors.
Edit: I uploaded new package archpup-leafpad-0.8.18.1-3-i686.pkg.tar.xz, that has lines
conflicts, provides and replaces leafpad, reported problem with conflicting files will not happen any more.

Please test (and hopefully add) filemnt_archpup-0.3-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz.gz and pupmessaging-0.1-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz.gz from THIS post. (Do NOT add the others)

i have added those 2 packages, now who's interested in help with maintaining this repository.
you need to have gmail account I think
later: I removed pupmount and pupmessage, and i hate things like gtkdialog-splash, yaf-splash
pupdialog, pupmessage, xplash puppy-osd-dislpay-messager-something

Latest repository addition: evince2-light-2.32.0-7-i686.pkg.tar.xz, so you can have evince without installing gtk3.

You know, if you keep ignoring functionality and keep insulting puppy users, archpup may end up your personal distro.
Good luck.

I am trying hard, but can't find anything worrying in that archpup finally end up as my personal distro.

What would be benefit if all puppy linux users suddenly start using archpup. And high flying puppy developers already
ignore this, so no harm done.

Maybe it is not clear enough that I already make this for myself, but also I am pleased to help others in areas where it is
possible, like with providing archlocale.sfs for non-english users. I don't need that, but I made it available for those that do.

Clarification: "personal" as is "for you only"

archpup has currently 10.000 downloads from 105 countries, and i believe in future there will be somewhere one more user or two.
but, that's not the point i don't want you leave, or at least wait for better reason to quit (sorry had to add that Very Happy )
Man, I hope you'll change your mind, with so many contributions archpup is your distro as it is mine.

Then you may thing that you do not need "good luck" but I'll wish it just the same
Good luck
(for when you realize that "download" and "use" or "appreciate" are totally different things)
