Hello again, Sheldon and all!

Puppy doing Ubuntu one better? You bet! I prepared for you guys the very latest
version of Claws-mail, v. 3.15.1. (As of this writing.)

You'll find it in the same repo as indicated above, in pet and sfs archive formats.
Enjoy! TWYL.

Many thanks, musher0! I'll add to this post soon, I hope; and will post in the "Internet" area of this forum.

Hello all.

xenialPup-7 has a brand new mpv application, mpv-0.14, assembled from ubuntu
repos, at
http://augras.eu/puppy_linux/?dir=musher0/xenialPup-706-k41/Multim%C3%A9dias

I had to do it because 1) mpv is an excellent media player and 2) the mpv Precise
version (which was obsolete, anyway) has been retired from the Puppy/Quirky depots
on ibiblio. In other words, we Puppists did not have the mpv media player available.

It's not a pet, and not an sfs. It's a zip archive containing deb files...
I see your faces getting longer! Smile

Sorry for this departure from Puppy usage, but why unpack the deb archives and
repack them as pet archives when petget and an adapted script can do the job.

If there is a request, I will assemble an sfs for this package.

How-to: In short,
-- download the above zip archive somewhere convenient and safe.
-- Unzip it.
-- A directory called < mpv-xenialPup7-install/ > will be created.
-- Enter this directory.
-- Make script < installe-mpv-pr-xenialPup.sh > executable with command
Code:
chmod +x installe-mpv-pr-xenialPup.sh
-- Then run this script.

I stopped short of launching mpv for you! Wink

Please read the following excerpt from the script if you need more info.
Quote:
(,,,)
#
# Goal: install the mpv media player and the libraries
# it needs to run on the "xenialPup7" Puppy.
#
# Dependency: the "liste" file. # (Should be attached. Check ! Smile )
#
# Usage:
# Open a terminal where you have unzipped the archive and
# type, without the chevrons: < installe-mpv-pr-xenialPup.sh >.
#
# Puppy's usual installer will pop up for each archive. Answer to
# its prompts with your cursor, as usual.
#
# This script also installs an additional desktop file for an mpv-dvd
# entry in the menu, plus the corresponding png icons and script.
##################
#
# NOTE --
# The attached *.deb archives, listed in the "liste" file, come from
# the packs.org site, which itself references to the ubuntu depots.
#
# For example, the "libguess" library":
# http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/r/
# rubberband/librubberband2v5_1.8.1-6ubuntu2_i386.deb
# (Concatenate the two previous lines to recreate the URL.)
#
# Similarly for the other archives.
##################
#

Also included in the zip archive are a forum page about running movies on dvd and an
except from the mpv man page, from:
https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/265874/using-mpv-to-play-dvd-movies

Enjoy.

Hello all.

Here is a simple webp pet to create and convert webp images, simpler than
the ready-made one proposed by Google at
https://storage.googleapis.com/downloads.webmproject.org/releases/webp/libwebp-0.6.1-linux-x86-32.tar.gz

Google's ready-made package is distro-agnostic, AFAIK, while this one was
compiled on and for xenialPup-7. However Google's ready-made package is
much bigger.

I compiled it from this source:
https://storage.googleapis.com/downloads.webmproject.org/releases/webp/libwebp-0.6.1.tar.gz

The compilation configuration is:
Quote:
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-static=no

The capacity of the package is:
Quote:
WebP Configuration Summary
--------------------------
Shared libraries: yes Static libraries: no
Threading support: yes libwebp: yes
libwebpdecoder: no libwebpdemux: no
libwebpmux: no libwebpextras: no

Tools:
cwebp : yes
Input format support
====================
JPEG : yes PNG : yes
TIFF : yes WIC : no
dwebp : yes

Output format support
=====================
PNG : yes WIC : no
GIF support : yes anim_diff : no
gif2webp : no img2webp : no
webpmux : no vwebp : no
webpinfo : no SDL support : yes
vwebp_sdl : yes

Hashes and tree of the pet are attached.

The interest of having this package is the interface it provides with the pnmtojpeg
utility from the netpbm suite, so you can convert a webp image to a jpg image.
Combining the two utilities like so::
Code:
dwebp 2.webp -ppm -o 2.ppm
pnmtojpeg -quality=99 2.ppm > 2.jpg

A fresh compile of the most recent netpbm suite (as of this writing) is available on
the 1st post of this thread.

Please note that some Puppies are shipped with the pnmtojpeg utility.

BFN.

Hi musher0.
The site for the mpv application contain several mpv files not mentioned by you in the post above, could you please clarify if there is a change to the installation process?

Hello tallboy.

Thanks for noticing.

I announced my work on mpv version 0.27 on the French side of the forum,
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=974099&sort=lastpost#974099
but forgot to announce it on the English side (here).

If you choose the sfs, please also unzip and run the script in the "complement" file
the first time you use the sfs. This will set a few essential symlinks.

The unnumbered mpv file marked "install" in that list is a repeat of jlst's precise
package, which is mpv version 0.14, but for xenial. I had not noticed that jlst had
already offered a package when I packaged it. Sorry about that.

If it's still unclear, please ask again? TIA.

IHTH

Thank you, ally and musher0.
I see that Xenialpup CE 7.5 with kernel 4.4.95 has mpv installed. It is probably the incorrect thread to ask, but what are the main differences between that Xenialpup and your 7.0.6 with kernel 4.1? My PCs are mostly old P4s.

Hi tallboy.

Answer : kernel 4.1 32-bit.

I created this xenialPup as an emotional reaction to the various xenialPups offered
with kernel 4.9, which were "as fast as molasses in winter" on my old machine.

Nobody was taking my criticism seriously, I was even being covertly mocked about
it, so I decided to swing into action. Deeds speak louder than words, right?

I also did it to test wiak's automaton for creation of Puppies from the woof-CE, which
was in development at the time. It worked fine.

In the days following the publication of my xenialPup 32 bits with kernel 4.1,
an easier way to switch kernels in woof-CE, inspired by stemsee's work on kernels,
was found and became available. Suddenly, the Puppy devs re-discovered it was ok
to offer an older kernel for older machines in addition to the most recent kernel.

My input was never mentioned, but that is not so important. Hell will freeze over
before ideaware is credited correctly in these parts. AFAIK, I am one of the few devs
on this board trying to back-track and credit his sources.

I did not compare the software offered in 666philb's recently published xenialPup
versus the apps offered in mine.

I hope this answers your question.

BFN.

Hi stowpirate,

Most likely, it's a problem with XenialPup not recognizing your graphics card/driver. But to even get started trying to figure out what, if anything, can be done we'd need more information, such as:

Specific model --they have names and numbers-- of your Aspire One Netbook WiFi. That much at least might provide a clue enabling us to search for its specs which might give us one or more possible graphics cards/drivers installed by Aspire.

Most operating systems have installed, or available to be installed, applications to provide reports about hardware present. Can you boot into any Puppy? If so, see if Pup-Sysinfo is on Menu>Systems. If not, you can obtain it here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=579411#579411

"CE" stands for "Community Edition".

Hello stowpirate.

I must confess I know nothing about wifi. I have a very good cable service and I
seldom travel.

The drivers for wifi, sound cards, mice, tablets, etc., etc., are in the sfs called
zdrv_xenial_7.0.6.sfs. This sfs should be in the same directory where you installed
your xenialPup.

In my builds, I never "drop" anything important like drivers.

As mikesLr mentioned, we need more info, some specs, in other words, about
your Pup and your hardware, so we can go hunting for your wifi driver.

It's probably in the zdrv; it could be that it is not activated, and there's a relatively
easy technique for that.

If it is not in the zdrv, your wifi driver is probably on the Internet somewhere, and
then it is a matter of hunting it down, incorporating it to the Pup and activating it.

I suspect the hardest part may be the "hunting". Smile Because it is not that difficult to
incorporate/install an additional driver to a Linux.

BFN.
