Sub_title: No Quickpet... Also need xorg high
 

I feel like a new newbie.

I've been using 5.25 and decided to update to 5.7.1 Precise.
EEEpc w/ 1.6GHz Atom
2 GB RAM.

I installed 5.7.1 to a fresh SDHC 16 GB card.
Boots fine; Everything works so far.
However, glx gears is showing much slower frame rates than it did under 5.25 w/ xorg-hi driver.
So I went to the desktop to use Quickpet to install the driver.
Alas, no Quickpet!

So, where is quickpet and/or where can I find xorg-hi?
Older Pups needs the driver for google Earth, and I assume 5.1.7 does also.

Thx.

I am not sure about what display driver you need. Maybe post in the Precise thread.

Sub_title: Google Earth Doesn't Activate - [SOLVED]
 

Hello, Smile
Thank you in advance if you can help with this issue.

I am running Precise 5.7.1.
3GB of RAM in the machine.

I've downloaded Google Earth from this location:
http://www.google.com/earth/download/ge/agree.html
Puppy says I've downloaded and installed the application (see screenshot)

So far, I've no thrill in activating the program.
Are dependencies missing? (The .pet install indicated dependencies were ok.)
Is a driver missing?
The PPM download looks outdated?

Thank you, again for any clues to get Google Earth running in Precise 5.7.1.

google earth depends on the link
Code:
bash-3.2# ls -l /lib/ld-lsb.so.3
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2014-01-17 00:41 /lib/ld-lsb.so.3 -> ld-linux.so.2

which is not in Pup's by default .

Without that, I'll get lots of errs like
Quote:
./google-earth: line 54: /opt/google/earth/free/googleearth-bin: No such file or directory
bash-3.2# file !$
file ./google-earth
./google-earth: symbolic link to `/opt/google/earth/free/googleearth'
bash-3.2# file /opt/google/earth/free/googleearth
/opt/google/earth/free/googleearth: Bourne shell script text executable
bash-3.2# file /opt/google/earth/free/googleearth-bin
/opt/google/earth/free/googleearth-bin: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.15, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
bash-3.2# ldd !$ | sort
ldd /opt/google/earth/free/googleearth-bin | sort
/usr/bin/ldd: line 124: /opt/google/earth/free/googleearth-bin: No such file or directory

To create it manually :
Code:
ln -s ld-linux.so.2 /lib/ld-lsb.so.3

The Linux Standard Base (LSB) specifies an interface between an application and a runtime environment. Many distributions have achieved certification for their runtime environments. This article outlines the steps needed to build applications that adhere to the LSB interface.

So it is not a serious bug, but IMHO the googleearth wrapper script to add the google earth libraries should test glibc and ld* and if needed create that link manually , else say some Cryptic Error Message ...

Oscar has some working .sfs files here, that include the missing link :

Thank you, Karl,
I'll study what you sent and post a response shortly.

EDIT:
I uninstalled the download from:
http://www.google.com/earth/download/ge/agree.html
that I referenced in my original post
then
I went to OscarTalks's post:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=86211
I downloaded his Google Earth 6.0.3.2197 .PET
Thank you, this appears to be working.
Now, I must learn how to use it! Very Happy
