Thar Pup 5.8.1.5

Did exactly as shinobar but different printer:

HP Deskjet 1050 j410 Series (USB)

1. Ran CUPS. Under Add Printer, select AppSocket/JetDirect.
2. On the next screen, delete "socket" and type "parallel:/dev/usb/lp0"
3. Finished setup, printer was recognized
4. Tried printing a test page. NOTHING
5. Interface says-
Thu 19 Jun 2014 11:41:15 PM XXX
"Unable to open device file "/dev/usb/lp0": Permission denied"

6. Tried printing a few words from Leafpad, my printer isn't even recognized there.

Other than the printing (so far) this is an excellent piece of work!!!

Runs nicely from the live cd but a frugal install results in immediate kernel panic.
Same problem as the latest Slacko so the search for a fix is underway.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=783941#783941

Running now from cd with savefolder on hdd (ext3).



Code:
# report-video

As posted on the Slacko topic:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=784181#784181
Same reproduced on the TahrPup-5.8.1.5.

(Installed epson_inkjet_printer_escpr-1.4.0.pet for my printer.)
# chmod 500 /usr/lib/cups/backend/*
The web interface shows my USB connected EPSON EP-404A on the list of the local printers.
Printing testpage. Success.

And confirmed the permission of the device node doesn't matter, 666 or 660.
# chmod 660 /dev/usb/lp0
# ls -l /dev/usb/lp0
crw-rw---- 1 root lp 180, 0 6月 20 2014 /dev/usb/lp0

The SFS_Load in the TahrPup-5.8.1.4 is reverted with the old version which does not work properly with save-to-diretory.
Please update to sfs_load-2.0.8.pet:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=64354
#09 Jun 2014 v2.0.8: ydrv, save-to-directory(gyro), DISSOSIATE option to be set by hardcode (thanks to R-S-H), remove find -mount option(Karl Godt)

testing 5.8.1.5 full fresh HDD install ext4

pmount - error

Code:

** (gtkdialog_pmount:10206): ERROR **: gtkdialog: Error in line 14, near token 'string': syntax error


Edit:

Added Lexmark S200 network printer without any problem.
First I installed Lexmark official driver ( deb ) then added printer with socket address.

p.s.
Personally I am not sure if PaleMoon it is ok to be default browser;
I tested Palemoon for win and it was unable to load/run web plugin that Firefox & SeaMonkey is loading & running without problems ( it is a plugin for CCTV )

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where is the 'fixed' version? I went to the download site and it still shows- tahrpup-5.8.1.5_PAE.iso -Is this now the fixed version? or isn't it available yet? or will there be a .pet-fix? Would like to test it and see if my HP USB will finally setup and print.

'Thanks'

thanks for last fix

I have question:

It is VLC working for you ?
No matter what format/codec it is media, avi, mpg, mkw...
for me it is not working, it just display the title of file it open and nothing more you can see I have 3 death vlc on task bar which I can't normally close..

edit:
I just installed QTPlayer2 to see if work and it is working ( not very good but media it is opened and played... I have to find default player in Precise 5.7.1, that one worked OK.

Another question:
It is hard to update latest Precise 5.7.1 kernel, only this kernel or latest kernel ( from Ubuntu ) and all default app from Precise to remain; nothing else changed if not required by kernel update ?

thank you for answer.

there is a precise with a newer kernel by stemsee here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=93409 or you could build one with woof https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/woof-CE

Hello @Al1000

A "save-folder" means you will NEVER hit the space problem that has plagued users of save-files for years in Puppyland. (Unless, of course, you fill the partition that the directory resides....unlikely for most Linux users).

Hope this helps


Thanks, I figured it would be something like that. Is Tahr the only Pup that has this save folder? I thought that perhaps Precise 5.7.1 and/or Slacko 5.7 might do the same, but they didn't give me that option when I tried installing them, and unfortunately Tahr won't boot my old laptop.

@ 666Philb:

1) The HD partitions on my frugal installation of Tahr 5.1.8.5 have become incorrectly named, as they were in the previous release. They are again named as sdb1, sdb2... sdc1 etc, there is no ''sda.'' Every operating system that I install on this computer thinks it has a floppy drive, even though it doesn't, just in case that has something to do with it, but every other Pup I've tried names the partitions correctly.

I would be interested to know, does anyone else find that drive partitions are named incorrectly, or is it just me?

2) I wanted to install Tahr to my laptop as well, but it wouldn't boot up due to issues with the graphics. I had similar issues trying to boot this laptop with Ubuntu, Lubuntu and Linux Lite, with Kubuntu 12.04 being the first ''large'' Linux OS I found that works. But every other version of Puppy I've tried boots up just fine, and Tahr is the first one I've come across that doesn't.

If you want any more details on either or both of these issues, please let me know.

@ n3w_puppy, vlc is working fine for me. In case you haven't tried it, changing the video output in Tools > Preferences > Video > Output, often does the trick.

hi Al1000,

save to folder is a new addition to woof, and should be in puppies built from now onwards. 01micko has a new slacko being tested with the option..
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=94328

drive partitions are being named correctly for me on two different computers, so not sure what's going on there.

what happens when booting fails on your laptop ? does it make it to xorgwizard? .... what graphic chip does it have?
