Attached below is an update to PeasyScan.

1. PeasyScan now recognizes SANE device names (URI's) that contain spaces. This is required by some next-generation SANE backends that use multi-word device names.

2. The OCR function has been removed in favour of the separate pic2txt app which has been updated here.

3. V2.16 recognizes the following PAPER choices to use in config files for Auto scanning:
Code:
letter, legal
ledger (11x17)
a3, a4, a5
a6 (4x6 photo)
b6 (5x7 photo)
b7 (5x3 index card)

Custom paper sizes and scan areas can be handled with the OTHER variable:
Code:
export OTHER="-x www -y hhh"  #in millimetres

WlanMaker

-----------------

To enable Internet sharing, do the following:

The server machine needs the additional package "iptables" via apt-get.

Start the server with: wlanmaker wlan0 ssid passphrase eth0
The fourth argument is the server's Internet-facing port.

Client machines will get an IP address via DHCP and a route to the Internet.

first I want to thank you for this great addition, it worked on my xenialpup. However I have some questions in regard to how it operates.

1) if my firewall is working, then there is no access to internet. However, I want to keep my firewall operational.how can I achieve this.

2)even though I closed my terminal, it is still operate in the background and I could access internet ( while disabeling the firewall). how to stop it or enable it again?

kindly explain in easy terms as I am a beginner in linux in general and puppy in particular. Thanks again

How to build a squashfs module for the KRITA drawing app

This is a standard repo2sfs build from the Debian repo.

As usual, you may want to stop at Pause B and remove usr/share/mime from the build.

At startup, the program throws some Qt-related messages, but it appears to be working OK.

Hi Bill, Sorry for the late response, just check the message on the website, ofcourse many thanks to you for taking the time to find a solution and sending it to me.

My excuses Smile

Here is a kernel module "driver" for the MOXA Uport 11x0 series Serial-USB adapter.

The device may NOT be auto-detected, in which case you must manually load the module with
Code:
modprobe mxu11x0

It may also require firmware. Run:
Code:
dmesg | grep -i firmware

Remove the fake .gz extension.

Here is the latest version of the brlaser printer driver from here. This is a generic driver for various Brother laser printers that eliminates the complexity of the vendor driver.

It was compiled in the Buster64 Starter Kit but may work in other 64bit Dogs.

A standard MBR-structured drive has empty space between the MBR (sector 0) and the start of the first partition. Some bootloaders like Legacy GRUB's optional stage1.5 and Grub4Dos (see below) use this space for their own code.

But the partition table of a GPT-structured drive starts at sector 1 and covers some of this space. So installing one of the above bootloaders will over-write the partition table and corrupt the drive.

The only contentious issue is whether Grub4Dos actually does this. Does its stage1 bootloader get written into sector 1 and beyond or does it fit entirely into sector 0? Here is a way to find out.

1. Start with a regular MBR-structured flash drive sdb.

2. Write zeros into the ten sectors starting at sector 1.
Code:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb seek=1 count=10

3. Save this block of ten sectors to the file out1
Code:
dd if=/dev/sdb of=out1 skip=1 count=10

4. Install the Grub4Dos stage1 bootloader.
Code:
bootlace.com --no-backup-mbr --time-out=0 /dev/sdb

5. Save the same block of ten sectors to the file out2
Code:
dd if=/dev/sdb of=out2 skip=1 count=10

6. Compare the two files.
Code:
cmp out1 out2
cat out1
cat out2

For GRUB2 users, this is a non-issue. But people who want to keep using their favourite G4D menu.lst syntax can boot GPT drives via Legacy GRUB without stage1.5. Its stage1 boot code fits entirely in the MBR and doesn't touch the GPT partition table.

Continued: The above procedure is based on shinobar's Grub4Dos Config tool which uses bootlace.com (or wee) to install the stage1 boot code. But there are other stage1 installers out there. If an installer was smart enough to recognize GPT, it could place its stage1.5 code in another location, like after the GPT partition table but before the first 1 MiB boundary. This would make G4D compatible with GPT.

Continued: In the discussions here, enrique claims to have this working - G4D on a GPT drive. Unfortunately, he provides no details of how he installed the stage1 G4D bootloader so it does not conflict with the GPT partition table. In the absence of this information, his procedure has no advantage over using Legacy GRUB to accomplish the same thing.

Continued: in recent versions of G4D (0.4.6a 2018-06-12), bootlace.com has a "--gpt" option. This will write the stage1.5 code to the area described above, allowing G4D to boot on a GPT drive.

Continued: I have not tested this on an SSD with 4K blocks. Hopefully, the "--gpt" option is compatible with such hardware.

PeasyScan v2.16 updated here.

V2.16 has a slight regression to accommodate models (like Brother) that use multi-word scanner options. For example:
Code:
export SOURCE="Automatic Document Feeder(left aligned)"

Legacy GRUB Config 2019 updated here. The squashfs module has been slimmed down considerably.

This continues to be the most versatile GRUB bootloader app for pre-UEFI machines. Use it with the stetch-live-frugal-install tool.

Didn't add Master PDF Editor to the Stretch repo yet, but just now I did.

Go here and get a 32bit or 64bit Debian package.

You have two choices:

1. Do a regular install with Right-click > Install Deb. However, there is a missing dependency.
Code:
apt-get update #if needed
apt-get install libsane

I recommend you stick to older 4.3.61 masterpdfeditor, Fred, and not the new versions from code.industry.net

The newer versions have much-limited functionality. My partner originally alerted me to that fact since I had simply installed latest for her from Arch AUR and she complained that lots of functions that used to work are now only available to registered users.
