Backi's instructions, but from here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/lightfirefox/files/49rc/201610051548_gcc232/

Note: Light-firefox 49 is seriously out of date.

Hi zagreb, try this .deb:

https://fredx181.github.io/StretchDog/NoRepo/light_49.0-2.20161005154938_i386.deb

EDIT: I think you know, but anyway for info:
If you use dpkg -i from terminal it should follow with apt-get -f install, so:
Code:
dpkg -i light_49.0-2.20161005154938_i386.deb
apt-get -f install  # will force installing dependencies


P.S. Maybe you might need to install extra codecs for media playback, that I don't know of.

Fred

It doesn't really for me, no sound on Youtube, this squashfs module of version 48 (peebee made it some time ago) works better for me:
https://debiandog.github.io/MakeLive/modules/lxdd/light-48.0.squashfs
At least sound on Youtube (with flashplayer installed)
Only one library is missing for me, libatomic1, so I installed it:
Code:
apt-get install libatomic1

I have no knowledge about that, I thought xfwm4 is for the most useful as part of xfce4, but maybe it can be used as a sort of standalone (with some other components added, e.g. a panel etc...), you need to experiment with that, I guess.

Hi zagreb999,

As an alternative to replacing openbox, you might be able to just add xfce4-panel to it, perhaps building the later as a squashfile. Following a hint from fred, that's what I did under some Puppies.

As far as I can recall --and this without the greater ability to pull in dependencies provided by apt or synaptic-- all I did was select for 'download with all dependencies' one component of the panel which pulled in almost all the other components. I later had to add 'exo-utils' and, I think, the Whisker Menu plugin. You'll recall that the basic Puppy employs JWM which does not use 'exo-utils'. Openbox as window-manager may already use.

Installing Brother printers in Stretch-Live-64bit

Brother does not supply 64bit versions of their printer drivers. Instead, you are required to install a 32bit compatibility package. Here is a light-weight solution:

1. Download the brother-printer-32bit-compat-stretch64_1.1.deb. It contains JUST the 32bit libraries required by the Brother driver.

<cut>


I followed the procedure and my brother printer works but now synaptic is broken because I think /lib32 is not in the system path:

Code:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 cupswrapperhl2130:i386 : Depends: libc6:i386 (>= 2.3.4-1) but it is not installable
 hl2130lpr:i386 : Depends: libc6:i386 (>= 2.3.4-1) but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution)
.

If I run "apt --fix-broken install" it uninstall the printer. How to fix this? I tried to run ldconfig with no luck.

I suspect that the problem is NOT with the compatibility pack, but with the Brother 32bit debs themselves.

Try this: Start with a clean setup. Install just the two Brother debs. Then check with synaptic. Do you have the same problem?

At the Brother website, they have their own solutions to installing their drivers into a 64bit system. IIRC, one of them didn't work in Stretch and the other required a massive download.

[Edit] I think that I understand the problem.

Some old Brother driver debs have libc6 as a dependency in their Control file. Newer models don't have this and they install fine.

So you need to rebuild the two .deb files and fix this.

1. Left click on the deb. This extracts it into a folder with the same name.

2. In the Debian subfolder, open the Control file. Delete the Depends line.

3. Rebuild the deb file with: dpkg-deb -b <name of deb folder>

4. Then install the two debs with the original instructions.

I'll try that way later. For now I have my printer working with a driver of the printer-driver-brlaser deb driver of synaptics.

Iprinter-driver-brlaser deb driver

Many (all?) of the Brother lasers use the same driver technology. It looks like someone converted it into a generic 32/64bit Debian driver.

The libc.so.6 32 bit is required by the postinstall script of lpr driver breaking synaptic even with the hack of the control file. I give up. I maintain my printer working with the printer-driver-brlaser v3 driver.

Are you talking about the file hl2130lpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb?

Starting with a clean install, I hacked the control file, loaded it with dpkg --force-all and checked synaptic.

I saw no problems.
