I'm sure that xcalc bug has cropped up before. I think it was just a particular version - I'll try and find the related posts.

EDIT See here:

If I may, keef, I think it's because xcalc is not included in the woof-CE for DpupStretch...

Here you go! BFN.

Re: Xcalc - It's apparently part of x11-apps_7.7+6+b1_i386.deb (pulled for xorg_base_new) but that version crashes X.

Hi all,

Can I make a suggestion?

Is there anyway possible to make Radky's FbBox4.0- fbpanel + Openbox desktop environment the "Default" in woof-CE builds---at least for these dpup-stretch builds?

My Gawd, FbBox is beautiful, intuitive, and stable. No wonder Billtoo keeps mentioning it when he's posting his installs. Quite frankly, imho, FbBox blows JWM off the desktop--especially in terms of functionality. The easy-to-use popup menus for configuration of anything possible on the desktop are incredible. I sat and watched my wife this evening navigate her way through setting up (using a frugal install of my dpup with FbBox as the default) every little desktop thing she wanted with no problems. This was never possible with JWM....jwm stumbles on a lot of the small things.

I am seriously considering chucking JWM completely in the next ISO I am uploading of dpup-stretch-700-DELUXE this week. After 3 straight days of using fbBox-4.0. I am still astounded at it.



P.S. Thanks, Musher, for the xcalc!!

Hi belham2,

Thanks for your comments about FbBox. I'm pleased you find it useful. Cool

Even so, please keep in mind the standard JWM desktop is a long-standing feature of Puppy and its selection as the default environment is based on flexibility and ease of use. The Woof-CE team is doing a great job.

For those who enjoy alternative desktops, there are many available and FbBox is only one option. Variety contributes greatly to Puppy's popularity. Smile

I did a new build which is using the 4.10.6 kernel compiled with the woof-CE kernel kit.

System: Host: puppypc23877 Kernel: 4.10.6-4G i686 (32 bit) Desktop: JWM 2.3.6 Distro: Dpup Stretch 7.0.0a1
Machine: Device: desktop System: Compaq-Presario product: AU194AA-A2L CQ5123F serial: MXX9300M0F

Graphics: Card: NVIDIA GF108 [GeForce GT 430]
Display Server: X.org 1.19.2 drivers: nouveau (unloaded: modesetting,fbdev,vesa)
tty size: 117x30 Advanced Data: N/A for root
Network: Card: Realtek RTL8101/2/6E PCI Express Fast/Gigabit Ethernet controller driver: r8169

It has missing items in the tray but the info is displayed with
gkrellm.
I didn't have the devx loaded when installing applications so some of the applications show up as shared libraries, but Vlc works Smile

I did a new woof-CE auto build including the 4.1.39 kernel compiled with the
kernel kit (reran ./3builddistro-Z from the last build)

System: Host: puppypc20516 Kernel: 4.1.39 i686 (32 bit) Desktop: JWM 2.3.6 Distro: Dpup Stretch 7.0.0a1
Machine: Device: desktop System: Compaq-Presario product: AU194AA-A2L CQ5123F serial: MXX9300M0F

Works okay so far.

Having a few problems with openvpn-2.4.1
Debian Stretch has openssl 1.1 and openssl 1.0.2 in the repos and this Puppy seems to be set up with both, but with the 1.1 DEV package.
Openvpn refuses to compile against 1.1 but if I remove this and install only the 1.0.2 libraries (libcrypto and libssl) and headers (DEV .deb) then openvpn compiles.

However, I can not run openvpn because /dev/net/tun is missing, in fact there is no /dev/net directory so I wonder what the (networking?) problem is.
EDIT:- Looks like tun is a kernel module and modprobe tun loads it successfully and openvpn then works.

I have this openvpn-2.4.1 compiled and working in earlier Puppies Wheezy, Slacko 5.7 and Precise.

Hi Micko,

Seems that modprobe tun does load tun (even though in a google search people were saying that it did not). Not sure why it doesn't auto-load at boot, but I suppose it can be loaded via boot manager or something if necessary. I have added tun to MODULESCONFIG in the remaster and openvpn is working fine. I still wonder about this openssl libraries and headers situation in Stretch though.

Hello all.

I've been studying mpv a bit, and to my surprise, I found out that it's quite
a powerful media player -- except on the face of it, it doesn't look like it is.

According to the docs, the configuration file mpv.conf should be in
/root/.mpv, NOT in /root/.config/mpv. IMO, it should be corrected at the
woof-CE level. For now, the user will have to do it him/her/self.

Here is a launcher script for mpv that hopefully you will find handy:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# /usr/local/bin/mpv.sh
####

W="`xwininfo -root | awk '$1=="Width:" { print $2 / 5 }'`"
H="`xwininfo -root | awk '$1=="Height:" { print $2 / 6 }'`"
# 1/5 of width, 1/6 of height, so as to fit monitors of any size.

mpv --player-operation-mode=pseudo-gui --geometry=600x300+$W+$H
# --audio-display=yes # doesn't work on emply
# -- %U

Of course if we launch mpv from a script, we have to edit the Exec lines
of its *.desktop file like so:
Code:
# TryExec=mpv
Exec=mpv.sh

Result is shown below.

Finally our DPupStretch7 does not offer the man file for mpv. In the
meantime, here is ubuntu's.
Edit: I have also attached a pet archive of it, extracted from the current
Stretch deb archive.

IHTH. BFN.

Hi Musher

RE: mpv

See this post also. How to flip/mirror (I set mine to the f key, but could be any other choice).
