Hi takenp.

Sorry for the late reply.

Hm. I did install it on my DPupStretch7. I got these missing libraries when I
tried to launch it:
Code:
ldd /opt/extras.ubuntu.com/glrp/GreatLittleRadioPlayer | grep not

Quote:
libQtGui.so.4 => not found
libQtCore.so.4 => not found
libQtDBus.so.4 => not found

FYI. BFN.

Just to be clear, this is an Internet radio, not a broadcast radio receiver. It requires an Internet connection to work, along with some libraries that aren't in most Puppies. It should have been packaged as a static app containing the needed libraries.

Can somebody explain something to me?

What's the difference between a 'normally-packaged' .pet.....and a statically-compiled one?

Okay, I probably misused the term. I've never made a .pet. Embarassed
I thought that what I meant would be obvious: that if a program requires libraries that don't normally come with Puppy, those libraries should be included with the .pet. Or at least the introduction should include links to where they can be found and brief instructions for installing them. Is that too much to ask? Smile

I checked with pfix=ram on booting on tahr-puppy i386 -- those libraries are installed by default, all others are in the package. So what to do? For tahrs it is OK, for some other puppy flavors possibly not.


cheerz!

Best idea is probably to appropriate them from a contemporary Puppy, and copy them across to /usr/lib. Or you could install the QT-4.8.5 SFS from my MediaFire a/c, here:-

http://www.mediafire.com/file/11p5fsrgpgfqygq/qt-4.8.5-i686-stripped_5.6.1.sfs

...which should be suitable.

Do be aware that you then might end up on an extended 'lib-chase', until all dependencies are finally satisfied!

PostPosted: Thu 13 Jul 2017, 13:06    Post subject: 64 bit Version & regarding Qt  

Hi All,

You'll find the deb for 64-bit Ubuntus and Debians here: https://sites.google.com/site/glrpgreatlittleradioplayer/version-1-4-5?pageUrlChanged=version-1-4-5.

Not sure what additional libraries will be needed for 64-bit Slackos.

Regarding Qt..4, at least 2 of the 3 libs dependencies which flash discovered were missing are required by all applications which have Qt dependencies. I don't recall if libQtDBus.so.4 is.

So many fine applications require the Qt "framework", rather than creating static builds I'd second Mike Walsh's recommendation with this twist:

Convert the qt-4.8.5-i686-stripped_5.6.1.sfs to a pet and install it. Together, the files in the SFS don't require much space. And its annoying to try to run some application, have it fail and after spending time trying to figure out why, realize that you forgot to load the SFS.

My rule of thumb is "install frameworks like Qt and python, and applications which are small; SFS load large applications". But then, I have sufficient RAM not to have to worry about conserving it for running applications.
