I installed the printer with these pets. They install the ML2162 driver in cups.
samsung_print-4.01.17.pet
samsung_print-4.00.35.pet
These are a bit hit and miss but work best with older puppies.
Does this answer your question.


I downloaded and installed "uld_V1.00.39_01.17.tar.gz". It seemed to install OK.
Now cups does not appear in the menu so don't know how to access it. (checked cups is installed).

I don't want to take up any more of your time on this. I'll keep working on it, probably start again from scratch.

Thanks for sticking with me.

Edit: When I ran ./install.sh in terminal it went straight to a terms and conditions window so I don't think it installed at all. I'll start again.

You start the CUPS web interface as usual: by opening your web browser and going to "localhost:631".

That's what it does - Press Enter until you get to the bottom and press "y".

I'm beginning to wonder if I actually have a brain.
I got that installed OK.
I opened the cups webpage and was confronted with a request for a password.
I tried root and puppy but neither were excepted.???

The 64bit BionicDog has a bug - the root user's password should be "root", but it's not.

Run the "passwd" command and reset it to "root".

I was confused by your statement above:

It suggested that you had already opened the CUPS web interface and done a CUPS setup, just like you would have done in Puppy.

I.m not surprised your confused.

That referred to the results of my previous attempt to install the unified driver. Cups appeared in the menu no idea how that happened. I un-installed
the unified driver and all that disappeared.

Will try to finally install the printer later.

Good catch, major bug, thanks ! It only affects the 64-bit version (also previous Bionicdog64 version 2018-04-21), 32-bit versions are OK, sorry for the inconvenience.
Fix it from terminal being root, to create new root password as you prefer:
Code:
passwd root

Fingers crossed.

I have a vague recollection of early versions of the ULD with different version numbers and some GUI functionality. But I stripped out the GUI stuff when I converted them to PETs.

Those drivers got replaced long ago with the current uld_V1.00.xxx class of drivers.

Those PETs are really old. The most recent ones I made were named samsung_print-uld.1.0.37.pet.

Hi again.

Anyone knows how to disable the Screensaver in BionicDog and how to boot into a desktop using a different language other than EN (e.g.: DE)?

Thanks.

Hi RSH, if you mean to disable the screen blanking every 10 min, see here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=992147#992147

Setting locale (language) is possible but not perfect, download, load (activate module, right-click from pcmanfm) the "99-locales-BionicDog-2018-04-21.squashfs" from download first post and see here:
EDIT: Better, instead loading -on-the-fly-, place "99-locales-BionicDog-2018-04-21.squashfs" in the casper folder of a frugal install, and reboot and it will be loaded everytime you boot BionicDog.
(@shelezyaka asked for how to set to russian locale, in your case change every "ru_RU" to "de_DE")
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=991270#991270

Just tell me if you need further help.

Fred

Excellent. To summarize, it's the same procedure in Puppies and Dogs.

1. Get a compatible driver package.
2. Install the driver.
3. Run the CUPS web interface at localhost:631 . Login as root if required.
4. Do a CUPS printer setup.

Thanks, yes that's what I meant.

Meanwhile I'd solved this by trying to use /root/.xset.sh from Puppy - worked pretty well, has also effect on mouse speed...

I will try to setup BionicDog for the use of DE desktop etc. later, when I'm back in BionicDog.

Again thanks.

Hi.

I had already downloaded the 99-locales-BionicDog-2018-04-21.squashfs and it loads automatically at boot. Following the advice here I was able to boot into DE desktop.

But there wasn't much of locales files downloaded, so I just grabbed the DE locales from German Language Package of L18L. Worked well.

Thanks! Smile

Hi,

I have made two remasters, one per RemasterDog and one per RemasterCow, just to find out how it works.

Named the files to:

01-remaster.squashfs (RemasterDog)
02-changes.squashfs (RemasterCow)

I suspect when using 01-remaster.squashfs the OS will run on this machine only?

Would this be different when using only 02-changes.squashfs?

And how do I use them?

When copying e.g. 02-changes.squashfs to the location of 01-filesystem.squashfs shall I remove everything from directory 'changes' before doing a reboot?

Or do I need to make a new install?

Thanks!
