Thanks Fred, that fixed the install mpv issue. However, that newer mpv didn't improve the webcam view lag issue. Also would no longer accept command "mpv tv://", which the previous mpv did (I needed to use: "mpv av://v4l2:/dev/video0 " but still had the big lag viewing problem).

Anway, no big deal, I will just use the original mplayer in XenialDog64 for webcam viewing with "mplayer tv://" command and not worry about mpv not being so good for that. mpv great for anything else I've used it for though.

That's a pity.
Another thing: For me after install newer mpv, it has no Menu entry in the Openbox menu (should be in Multimedia, LX menu however shows it), that happens sometimes, don't know why.
A workaround is to remove the obmenu-generator cache:
Code:
rm -f ~/.config/obmenu-generator/cache.db

After that, for me "mpv Media Player" shows in Multimedia (a window for to drag and drop multi-media files on).

I have Signal (open-source end-to-end encrypted Skype alternative) running on my XenialDog 64bit system, as described here:

Recently obtained a google chromecast dongle which I now have plugged in to my old dumb lcd tv. Main interest for me (aside from youtube streaming to it) is streaming of local media files. Discovered that newish google chrome can arrange that without needing any extra extensions but resource usage a bit high. So I installed 'castnow' command line program which works great and uses low resources as described here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=985356#985356

EDIT: As added to above link contents, Stream2Chromecast commandline program may be even better (especially since more recently maintained).

Google chromecast seems pretty useful actually (especially since my old computers have no HDMI ports for plugging into the tv directly)

Hi Fred,

I've been trying to compile the component libraries for Lua IUP graphical toolkit (for example CanvasDraw) to use GTK2 instead of GTK3 but having a lot of issues getting compilation without errors. Tonight I discovered there was a problem with devx on XenialDog64 mucking up some symlinks to some very relevant libs. I have a remastered main 01-filesystem.squashfs so not sure if I've simply (quite possibly...) accidentally added something to that which is not compatible with the devx for XenialDog64.

In particular, once I activate the devx squashfs, I find the following important symlinks are broken (compiling works once I fix these symlinks). They are pointing to the wrong (older) ...so.0.4800.1 rather than ...so.0.4800.2 target on my system:

Code:
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgmodule-2.0.so
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgthread-2.0.so
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgobject-2.0.so
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgio-2.0.so


No problem for me now since I will just remaster again with the new symlinks but I thought I'd tell you about this in case this fault is actually in the pristine XenialDog64. I would try it, but my machine is out of space so difficult to change anything at the moment.

If you have time, therefore, could you please check that these symlinks are there and working okay when devx is loaded with pristine XenialDog64 (latest release). Otherwise others will also run into major issues trying to compile heavy gtk-dev-using applications. As I said, it (hopefully) might just be my remastered system causing the issue though.

Hi wiak, the symlinks are there (intact) with devx loaded on a pristine Xenialdog64, indeed pointing to ....4800.1.
Of course if the devx was updated once in a while, the problem you got wouldn't happen, but to avoid such a situation, I'd recommend the "Safe mode" option of loading a module (then newer files from the (possibly updated) system will not be overwritten by older files included in the module).

Fred

Thanks, Fred, that's good to hear.

At some stage I will have added compile support to my changes folder by apt-get and then removed most of it, but accidentally left some newer stuff behind (the ...4800.2 stuff). More important that the pristine is fine. Longer term I'll either go back to that and make sure to only use the devx for compiling or I'll simply not use the devx and remaster with new build stuff apt-get installed to my changes folder. But, yes, in the meantime, the 'Safe' module load is good idea.

Cheers, wiak

Ah good. BionicDog64 is exactly what I'm wanting for my next 'main' system.

Will test sometime, once I'm not so busy with Lua/iup package preparation.

PostPosted: Tue 03 Apr 2018, 21:24    Post subject: BionicDog64 Beta -- Nice  

Hi fred,

BionicDog64 Beta is working well on my desktop, an Dell OptiPlex 790, and my laptop, an Latitude 6400.

I've just begun to explore its possibilities. I was pleased to find that several AppImages worked OOTB. Among those which functioned was the new Openshot 2.4.1. Others should work once I've installed qt-libs. I was also able to convert the Apache OpenOffice 4.15 SFS.

Being in a hurry to get up and running, and recalling that I previously had a problem with the built in wifi manager [don't recall if it was only a learning curve or that it also had a problem with WEP] I took a chance and installed the frisbee you built for debiandog64, frisbee_1.2.2017928dd64. As it worked, I haven't checked to see if there's a later version.

Thanks for the hard work you've put into this.

PostPosted: Wed 04 Apr 2018, 06:21    Post subject: IUP deb packages for use with small Lua interpreter  

IUPLUA programming graphical toolkit programming environment deb files. This first release (GTK2 compilation) is for Ubuntu Xenial 64-bit system (such as XenialDog64). Whether it would work on any other recent 64-bit Linux system I do not know. I intend to compile 32-bit versions later and hopefully also produce some dotpets. Links to simple example GUI code is provided in second post of thread.

Find the small google-drive download in the IUPLUA packages thread here:

Hi Mike, thanks for testing !

I remember that, but the problem you had in Xenialdog64 with WEP was with the included "wifi-box", this Bionicdog has peasywifi as default network-manager.

Thanks ! I added it to Xenialdog64 repo.
Install iuplua-core-xenialdog64-gtk2 with Synaptic or apt-get:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install iuplua-core-xenialdog64-gtk2


Can't wait for the first program you produce with iuplua (a simple program will be OK to start with Wink)

Fred

Remember, you need to also apt-get install lua5.3. I didn't add it as a dependency because there are other versions of lua out there (such as that from tecgraf iup site) which some may prefer to use.

Just try the provided examples, Fred!

Code:
lua5.3 <example_filename.lua>


Okay, so I will write a complete relevant Puppy/Dog utility app as an exemplar sometime... or for that example-type purpose just re-write an existing bash/gtkdialog app to use iuplua instead... I will also have to learn some Lua first (despite the GUI part being very easy to understand).

Thank goodness for that! Frisbee in old XenialDog64 (it wasn't wifi-box by default) is very flaky on my computer - I also replaced it with PeasyWifi, which works flawlessly for me.
