I looked at the leafpad website, 0.8.17 is the latest version. I wonder where 0.8.18 comes from?

Latest is 0.8.18.1

Anyway, the video player. I know that you guys have been trying various video players. Which one do you reckon would be the best replacement for xine?

I guess the choices are VLC, mplayer, xfmedia. Anything else?

The replacement should be something that doesn't have too many dependencies.


I am compiling VLC, with support for the GPU in the Pi:

I also posted links to light-weight GUIs for VLC.

Here is another GUI:

Did you compile that omxplayer-v7-0.3.7.pet, or was it a ready-made binary from somewhere?

I have compiled VLC, without Qt. I did everything recommended for compiling on the Pi2, but when I run it like this:

cvlc --vout omxil_vout big_buck_bunny.mp4

I just get an error message;

"core decoder error: failed to create video output"

However, "sdl" and "x11" work.

if retrovol is launched from the start menu it creates a speaker icon in the tray.
The icon doesn't disappear when retrovol is quit, so there will be multiple
speaker icons . (see image)

When retrovol is launched from the tray this doesn't occur.


I just re-read this post, I had misunderstood it before.

Yes, you are right, that does happen.

Anyway, now I am using 'pnmixer' for the tray and 'aumix' mixer, two separate apps, so it avoids that problem.

Remember to compile mhwaveedit for the new audio mixer
Code:
./configure --with-default-mixerapp=aumixer --prefix=/usr

I stole the whole thing from a media server OS that is available at the
berryboot site. Then I made a few links so that there wouldn't be complaints
when launched at the terminal.

There is a huge number of dependencies so it won't be easy to compile.

Yay, vcl now works with the 'omxil_vout' option.

It was simple, vlc could not find the libraries. I added "/opt/vc/lib" into /etc/ld.so.conf, then ran "ldconfig".
For good measure, I also added "/opt/vc/bin" to PATH variable.

Right now I am compiling MPV. ...hey, that was quick, finished. It downloaded latest ffmpeg and compiled the libs statically only, so end up with 'mpv' as one big executable -- 12MB.

And yep, it works.

I am impressed at the speed of 0.8.25 on my rPi2! Great job!
Is wifi supposed to work? I tested two different USB micro adapters in two different wireless networks, with all three connection managers. In all cases the connection managers report that the DHCP client can't connect to the network, this is with WPA security. I know the wifi APs are set for WPA2 security. Is that the problem?

The micro adapters are the Edimax and TP-link 8188eu, which are commonly found on rPis. SID scanning works fine for both adapters and all connection managers.

Then I connected on eth0 and that worked fine. seamonkey as spot worked fine. Youtube didn't show any video placeholders, just text. And while I was browsing another site Seamonkey just crashed.

Like I said I'm impressed with this piece of work. Thank you very much.

I clicked on tray icon and followed instructions.
My USB adaptor driver showed up in list.

There is an option when compiling nano called "tiny".
This reduces the size quite a bit.
I compiled again.

A method of installing omxplayer on raspberry pi2 (and pi3 )

1)Download a compiled omxplayer_0.3.7

2) install in your quirky

3) check the list of missing libraries with a ldd command. There will probably
be 6 or 7 missing libraries. You could perhaps compile these libraries and install
them or do what I did and go to berry boot page and get a media server OS and steal the libraries from them.

4) The size is fairly small, especially if the freefont isn't installed with
the app.

OK, thanks for trying. I need to clarify your answer. If you mean that "wlan0" showed up in the list, so does here. Then I can scan the wifi network and find my wifi access point SID. It is past this point that I can't connect because "the DHCP client can't connect to the network" - so do the connection managers report.
What about you, were you able to connect to the internet via your wifi adaptor? Did browsing work?

I have been a long time Puppy Linux user, though today finally had a reason to say something. As the Raspberry Pi 3B is my main computer. Thank you Berry for this version of Quirky, that on this day has become my main Operating System.

Thus far I have not seen any bugs using version 8.0.25. Though I am looking forward to seeing where this version leads.

I think I may have found a small bug of importance. Not an area I know very well:

When attempting to set the time from a server it gets it wrong every time.

It has set the time to the 3rd of this month, early afternoon 10 times this morning.

I do not know a thing about that kind of software on Linux (never had a use of it before the Raspberry Pi). I did try all the servers you include to be sure of error.

Hi DavidS,
I am using RPI2 as my desktop; switched across from Raspbian as soon as BarryK added LibreOffice to his Quirky 8.0.25 alpha (thank you for this Barry). Quirky is an excellent and full featured desktop environment. There are other advantages of Quirky/puppy/fatdogARM like being able to easily mount/unmount various USBsticks on the rpi. Plus all the great info on this forum.

I had same issue as you with timesync not working. I fixed it by the following (although I don’t know which one did the trick!):

1. Install these two extra packages (and all their dependencies – do this via the Puppy Package Manager ("install" icon on the desktop opens the PPM):
ntp_4.2.8p4+dfsg
fake-hwclock_0.9

2. Reboot pi and then open Menu>System>Boot Manager configure boot up. Click on the “..services to run at boot..” icon. Ensure “ntp” is ticked in the boot manager list of things to start up on boot.

3. In Geany (text editor) open this text file in /etc/rc.d directory:
/etc/rc.d/rc.local
then add the following line to the end of the file:
ntpd start

4. In Geany open another text file in /etc directory:
/etc/ntp.conf
then add the following line to the beginning of the file:
tinker panic 0

FYI, No 1 gives the rpi a fake clock and remembers the last time you logged off, since the rpi doesn’t have a built-in system clock. No 2 & 3 start the ntp service and retrieves the date and time from the ntp server/s you have listed in the ntp.conf file. No 4 tells the ntp service not to panic if the time is too big a difference (I think?).

If you don’t have any servers listed in the ntp.conf file, these are the ones I added:
pool 0.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org iburst
pool 1.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org iburst
pool 2.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org iburst
pool 3.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org iburst
