Hmmmm, maybe that's standard operation. I think I've figured out how to fix.....

So would I write a script like

Code:
#!/bin/sh

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/wine:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

exec /usr/lib/wine/wine "$@"


And call it wine and put in /usr/bin/ ?


EDIT: That worked but, wine could not exec the wineserver. I had to create a link in /usr/bin/ to /usr/lib/wine/wineserver32.

I also had to name that link winserver (not wineserver32). After that a test on Google SketchUp7 (SketchUp.exe) opened the program.


Another problem I noticed with BionicPup when I was working with this issue: right clicking on a file and then selecting "properties" always failed the first time I did it.

I had to do it a second time to actually get properties.

I am using a touchpad with real (physical) mouse buttons, and with the touchpad tap functions turned off.

I would remove the Wine you got from PPM.

Install the Wine pet made for Puppy.

For Wine.

Make sure you have the latest version of Wine.
Well, some programs do seem to work better on older versions of Wine, but I would start with the newest and see.
Good place to get Wine for Puppy.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=88711

Also, look on the first post of the Wine topic for a added 'wine_extras-v2.1.pet' that puts Wine entries in the menu.

When you get Wine installed and the Wine menu entries.
Run Wine config to setup Wine.
It will probably offer you a few more programs needed for Wine to run properly.
Should download and install them as part of the initial config.

Also, in Wine config->Drivers Select autodetect to get all the driver locations loaded in Wine.

A lot of settup options in Wine config, so check them all.

What version of Windows you want Wine to mimic can affect how a program runs. Wine Config->Applications.

About specific programs running in Wine.
Go to the Wine web site and see what it says about a specific program and issues.
http://www.winehq.org

Using Wine is almost like learning a new operating system.
Takes a while to learn how to use Wine and to get things working properly.

PostPosted: Thu 11 Apr 2019, 02:39    Post subject: lifeograph 1.4.2 sfs?  

I tried to install lifeograph 1.4.2 via PPM. First i updated the repo files. Then PPM suggest to install 2 files, ie lifeograph_1.4.2-1 & libgtkmm-3.0-1v5_3.22.2-2.

After installation complete, i can open lifeograph, but i cannot use it because all the functions and icons are not present. This might due to some missing libraries. It says "glibmm-ERROR".

Can anyone please help compile and post a working lifeograph.sfs here? I have been using it instead of for years. Wish i can continue to write journals on my Bionicpup as well. I think such sfs file will benefit other forum member as well.


Thanks for all your kindness..


My system:
1. frugal installed bionicpup32 on 2GB pendrive, pupsave on ext2 file system.
2. Tahrpup 6.0.6
3. Bionicdog64

Thanks BigPup, I've been running Wine for years, though not for many programs. Mainly the old Google SketchUp 7, a must-have for me. It runs perfectly on Wine 1.5.9, and has problems after that version in the 1.x.series with image exports. They end up blank.

I've been able to install Wine 1.5.9's .pet on other Puppies up until now, but BionicPup32 won't properly run that one, hence the experiment with Wine 3.0 using the installer.

After a few tweaks, Wine 3 seems to run SketchUp 7 okay, so far, but still testing. My aim is to switch to BionicPup32 as my main distro after several years on TahrPup if all works out. And SketchUp is a pivotal program for any change in a tried and true system, used daily.

If I run into problems with the present installed Wine, I'll look at what's specifically available for PionicPup32. Thanks for the suggestions -- and yup, the utilities and config are useful -- used them in the past.

I compiled the new DeaDBeeF 1.8.0 from source in BionicPup32

Build complained about missing libcurl4-nss
Might be worth looking at adding this to the Woof-CE build recipe
I added it via PPM and included the run-time lib in the package.

Optional extra functionality libs added:-
- opus (libopus) upgrade to version 1.3 plus opusfile package for opus file and streaming support.
- libmpg123 to provide the option to choose between that or libmad for mp3 playback
- libwavpack for wavpack playback support

I added a couple of MIME associations including left-click for .opus and
Right-click > Open With > DeaDBeeF for easy playback of any type of audio file in ROX

All looks and sounds very good here on initial testing.
Uploaded strictly for experimentation

I installed the Chromium .deb file, it was installed perfectly, but I can' t run the browser. Something is missing.
I use this way to update the chrome in the 64 buts puppy, why is not working in the 32 bits version?

From debian.org. Yes, it is 32 bits. This is the link:
https://packages.debian.org/stable/web/chromium

PostPosted: Sun 14 Apr 2019, 10:59    Post subject: Cannot run lifeograph  

After few days of messing around, still unable to run lifeograph on Bionicpup32 puppy.

The program will install successfully, but unable to create diary, or open any text file.

In terminal, the error code is as below:





# lifeograph
ERROR: Failed to create the entry view

(lifeograph:26143): glibmm-ERROR **: 22:54:28.172:
unhandled exception (type unknown) in signal handler

Trace/breakpoint trap





From the error code, it said there is a problem with glibmm. However, i had installed all the dependencies. In bionicpup32, i think the glibmm is already installed.

Will try for another few days, is there any puppies that can install and run the latest lifeograph?

Bionic Pup is Ubuntu based so better to look for chromium-browser in
http://packages.ubuntu.com

These browsers usually require some modifications to get them to work in Puppy.
Best to look around for packages that have been modified for Puppy already.

However, in BionicPup32
Update PPM databse
Install chromium-browser
Start from terminal with chromium-browser --no-sandbox
Works.

You can then edit /usr/bin/chromium-browser and the .desktop file in order to make it run from the menu entry.

Chromium sfs configured for Puppy is available from the menu:
Internet -> Get Web Browser

This is the recommended approach.

I looked at this in BionicPup32 and tried a few things but always got the same error as you.

I don't know if this is of any use to you, but in Dpup Stretch I installed Lifeograph from PPM and it seems to work. Version is slightly earlier at 1.4.0

It is updated as soon as a suitable version becomes available - however AlienBob has had problems building the latest 32-bit version.....

Nice! How we get these updates? Dowloading again the sfs with the link in the menu?
