Thanks. 64bit remains a PM only option.


I've got to wonder about the logic behind doing that.What is being hidden or achived by that . If its out there then put it out . Why hold it out as availabe only to selectively distribute it ?

I'm starting to look at "rcrsn51" as somewhat incapable or at least devious as none of what I have downloaded from him in threads has worked straight off and this is the second example of the PM me approach that I have seen. He compiled a wifi driver and mentioned the fact in a thread of mine but had to be pestered to get it.That at least worked and still does in Precise 5.7.1 but I hav'nt seen any other working software yet.

The one in this thread gave me "ZILTCH" folks , not even a menu entry or a command line command so I dunno?

It seems that the mediafire download link is broken. Is there any updated link where I can download the file? Thank you.

Thanks I'll have a look .
Its what else he is attaching to it that interests me . That devious approach indicates something is not right.

Go into the directory you keep this file in , open a terminal there and type and run "pet2tgz CamPhoneTab-1.5.pet" and you will get a tar.gz file (save a copy of the original in some other directory as it will be changed and the md5 file lost) . Click on that and it will show you whats in it. below is a partial screenshot .

So you trust no-one . There can be spyware easily run on your machine in there!

You guys do realise that rcrsn51 has posted these CamPhonetab PETs with compiled binary executables, and no link to any source code. not that i can see anyway.

The source may be from a opne source online project, but has rcrsn51 modified it?

Sometimes he does modify source. PeasyScan I think it was, has a binary of a public open source project but with some mods that he made.
I asked him for the source, and he sent it to me.

A few months ago, sent him a pm asking for the source for his bluetooth PET, but he never replied.
He hasn't posted on this forum since July 31 2016.

I developed my own bluetooth solution for Quirky, but it is not a good situation for Puppy developers who are using his bluetooth PET.

Not a good situation either, for users of CamPhoneTab.

rcrsn51 has made superb contributions to Puppy, over many years, with the "peasy" series, and has been extremely helpful with networking and printing. We owe him a lot of gratitude for that contribution.

So he has just been a bit slack about posting the source, as required for all GPL projects. But then, there are others just as guilty.
Personally, I don't mind, as long as I can search and find the source. But when a developer modifies the source then doesn't post it, they need to be reminded of the obligation.

I am concerned actually. He was contributing regularly up until July 31, then suddenly stopped.

rcrsn51 sent to me a CamPhoneTab 64 bit by private message. Can I share it or it's better to drop this sharing stuff? I'm not a developer, I'm only a puppy lover and I want to avoid the death of rcrsn51's contribute.

I have a copy of CamPhoneTab 1.6 that I helped test in July via PM. It works pretty good and connects to iPod, iPad and a Samsung Galaxy Ace running CyanogenMod. Connects with all 3 and I can transfer files and so on and so forth. Also a CamPhoneTab_Hotplug-1.0.pet that detects the devices as I plug them in. I have heard nothing since from rcrsn51. That was in July. But for transferring photos from an iPod Touch 5th Gen or the iPad plus the android phone CamPhoneTab 1.6 (same as v1.5) still works well.

If you look up at barrys post above it would be interesting to see what you have . Did you receive the source or a compiled binary?

Sorry for no reply.. I forgot that Puppy Linux was able to do it. as the topic at the top again, i browse it. Unfortunately i am searching for my USB cable since yesterday.
This topic should remain at the top of graphics too. So many of us use their phone as a camera.

Thank You I'll have a look at those .

My question to you though and maybe pelo or anyone else interested is can you get your contacts and text messages off an android phone with android 5 or better on it ?

gmtp gets all your pictures videos recordings etc off but not those two. As does the pets above

There is the possibility that some accident has befallen him/her. So I would suggest you post a copy here to ensure it is not lost .

The above pets contain no source code and do nothing more than is available on gMTP i feel. The pets are binaries and needed libraries to run as far as I can see.

rcrsn51 says as much in the first post.
The hotplug pet is included there too.

I can't get gMTP to connect or even detect my iPod Touch 5th gen. I will check what I can open with it.

update: my Android CyanogenMod works great with gMTP as well.
