Now works with Barry Kauler's Raring
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=87043

Chinese now shows in Raring Start menu.
I added the following code in pinstall.sh of icake's language pack
Code:

#120924 DejaVu font no good for non-Latin languages...
#see also similar code in /usr/local/petget/hacks-postinstall.sh.
LANGPACKLANG=zh
case $LANGPACKLANG in
 zh*|ja*|ko*) #chinese, japanese, korean
  sed -i -e 's%DejaVu Sans%Sans%' ./etc/xdg/templates/_root_*
  if [ -d ./root/.jwm ];then
   sed -i -e 's%DejaVu Sans%Sans%' ./root/.jwm/themes/*-jwmrc
   sed -i -e 's%DejaVu Sans%Sans%' ./root/.jwm/jwmrc-theme
  fi
  [ -d ./etc/xdg/openbox ] && sed -i -e 's%DejaVu Sans%Sans%' ./etc/xdg/openbox/*.xml
  [ -d ./root/.config/openbox ] && sed -i -e 's%DejaVu Sans%Sans%' ./root/.config/openbox/*.xml
  GTKRCFILE="$(find ./usr/share/themes -type f -name gtkrc | tr '\n' ' ')"
  for ONEGTKRC in $GTKRCFILE
  do
   sed -i -e 's%DejaVu Sans%Sans%' $ONEGTKRC
  done
  if [ -d ./root/.mozilla ];then
   MOZFILE="$(find ./root/.mozilla -type f -name prefs.js -o -name '*.css' | tr '\n' ' ')"
   for ONEMOZ in $MOZFILE
   do
    sed -i -e 's%DejaVu Sans%Sans%' $ONEMOZ
   done
  fi
 ;;

Hi don570,

There might be another reason for Chinese fonts not being correctly displayed. Font configuration is seriously broken in Raring and in Woof I reckon. It misses a key ingredient: the "conf.avail" directory. See image below.

Someone on Ubuntu Forum posted an expanded set of etc/fonts directory, you might find it useful for your localization work. It has conf. files for many additional languages. I'm reposting it here.

I was wondering if the perceived speed of Raring is hardware specific

And I'm wondering if we should even discuss puppy's speed without having any proof of it. I saw your response to aarf's comment on BK blog and have a convenient opportunity of running the test against freshly installed upup Raring-3.9.81. Running in pfix=ram mode, off of an 8GB SD card on an Intel atom n270/945GSE dual SSD eeepc. Done exactly the same way as you described it.

So here's my results:
Code:

Puppy Raring is faster than Upup Raring, but is it faster to Upup Precise (that's what I compared), or Racy or Slacko?

One more thing is that 'time' really measures the CPU time that a process and its children consume. Does not account for I/O speed of GPU/X-rendering speed that may affect performance as perceived by the real life user.
I basically shows how well an app and the libraries it depends on perform CPU-wise.

...at the end of the day, it all gets a bit subjective. Personally, I have perceived Precise's latest incarnation to outstrip many Pups, especially Rarin' on a wide range of HW, albeit without your detailed measurements and analyses. Notwithstanding, Rarin' presently has so many other issues for BK to struggle with. I am not prepared to waste time (and dosh) on the industries latest 999-core monstrosities pushed at us in the inexorable cycles to trouser even more of our cash for no apparent gain. It all started when Intel couldn't get the heat out of their processors, particularly as the feature sizes dropped to 45, then 32nm. Now they're all at it. Strange when one considers what Google's Android can achieve on a little ol' ARM v6 & co. with no HSF at all !

PostPosted: Thu 01 Aug 2013, 19:21    Post subject: Problem mounting ntfs partition read/write  

I get an improper error when mounting an ntfs partition that causes it to be unable to mount the partition read/write. I had the same problem with the latest precise. So rcrsn51 suggested that I replace the relevant ntfs-3g components with those from a pup that works. It worked, so I tried it with this distribution too. Deleted files ntfs-3g, libntfs-3g.so.84, and libntfs-3g.so84.0.0 and replaced them with slacko 5.5.70 files nfts-3g, libntfs-3g.so.83, and libntfs-3g.so.83.0.0 and it's mounting properly.
