PostPosted: Thu 03 Dec 2015, 18:52    Post subject: Can't make pupradio work  

Has anyone installed then tried to make pupradio, say 0.19
work properly with slacko 6.3?

Terminal says it can't find end of file EOF & " marks.
When any station name is pressed.
what does this mean in plain English?

It seems this nice prog is incompatible with 6.3.
sorry I'm not a compiler but would like
to get it working.
regards

Yes, I've added pupradio-0.19.pet to Slacko 6.3.0 and it works. Not all stations are up to date but "7: VPR Classical" works here.

Pasting an external stream like http://pub1.di.fm:80/di_chillout into the URL then pressing "Play Now!" works here too. Smile

Subject description: TIW question
 

"I downloaded slacko 6.3. and used gnumeric. Unfortunately gnumeric crashes every time I go to a cell - click copy - click on to another cell in order to paste the value from that cell before. Since gnumeric does it every time I guess it is a bug. A have used Precise, Tahrpup and Quirky and did not have this particular problem. These puppy’s have there own problems. So the question . What causes it and how can it be fixed ?
Thanks for your help."
I am interested in the answer to the question, too. i posted elsewhere, but my remark was not answered...
Don't forget what for we run a computer, dear roots.
Once the gas cooker is deliverered, it has to cook... Verify applications too, because connecting is useless if we can only connect.
TIW ,when i Work with gnumeric (often) i use old puppies with old version (on my old computer with azertyuiop keyboard, sans soucis).

It's just Conky from the PPM with a custom config.

From the Puppy Menu select 'Puppy Package Manage' (PPM)

http://puppylinux.org/wikka/PPM

Search for conky, install conky

Configure by editing text file:

This is similar to what you posted:

Why isn't this thread in the Bug section?
I am experiencing a serious bug in Firefox ESR 38.4.0. Because of cumulative slowdown, I must reboot this Core2 Duo Dell with 4 GB ram every 6 to 8 hours. On top of that, Firefox restores the browser with basic page controls inaccessible, for which there is no obvious solution. Not only are the three basic page controls in the upper right hand corner inaccessible, Show Desktop doesn't work, and Leave from the Menu button is non-functioning. So not only am I required to reboot three times a day, I must also loose all my browser placements and history every time it's necessary to reboot. As far as Firefox goes, it doesn't get much worse than that.

I have a Dell D630 laptop with core 2 duo and don't have these issues. Are the missing controls hidden underneath a panel?

This is the bug report thread for slacko 6.3 and slacko64 6.3:

The title bar that contains the 3 page controls on the far right side is jammed, above the screen, frozen in this position, which also applies to all windows. Nothing in the task bar right click menu can budge the frozen page. Only thing to do is crash x to command prompt with Cntl+Alt+Backspace, restart x with "xwin jwm", open Firefox but decline to Restore.

This version is built from woof-CE testing branch commit 4c1f96e and is fully reproducible. See this thread for more on building slacko.


Has anyone tried this? This hasn't worked for me and I continue to fail miserably with Woof-CE.

01micko,

Any chance of a Nvidia 173.14 driver pet for the kernel in Slacko 6.3?
The Slacko repo has it for other Linux kernels, but not for the one in Slacko 6.3.

I know it is an old driver, but nothing newer will work on my hardware. This old Dell will not die Shocked Laughing

Thanks!!

@bigpup

Ping me in a few days. I'll see if I can build it then. I'm immersed in getting pupdial and pgprs more reliable at the moment.

Is there any help files for how to use the stuff in menu->Desktop->Desktop settings?

Tray?
Theming?
Menu?

You can get stuff really messed up and it is not that clear on what you did or how to fix it.

Theming
Seems to be full of traps and misunderstandings on what exactly you are doing and to what.

I installed this today. In all honesty I rather wish I hadn't.

- No quickpet or equivalent I can see.

- I struggled to get dillo working as I could find no link in the PPM, I had to find it through a google search. I also had problems getting MOC to install from the PPM.

- Menus seem to be broken. Palemoon has no icon and it opens with a url of = www.%u.com" (can anyone help?) which I cannot change, though this may not be a slacko error to be fair, it's happened before to me in opera.

- Menus don't seem to tie up with executable files. MOC works from the menu but not terminal, palemoon works without the above error with a full path command.

- I don't see a lot of new features or improvement over tahr pup but again perhaps I'm being unfair, I've only used it for a few hours.

This is just down to me and my taste though. I'm sure it will be delightful to other users. Thank you, and I'll stick with it for a few days, I may well change my mind Smile
