Saturday the floor above mine was burning, so my sleep was interrupted by the fire-brigade.


Hope you are OK? Was anybody hurt?
What about your flat?

Will this effect Muppy?
(I should have asked that first Embarassed )

The last fire we had (the kitchen was in flames)
. . .
The cat was running up and down the stairs along with people trying to get out / phone the fire brigade and fetch water in a state of complete confusion.

the fire brigade was called (the phone was put down in confusion but they traced the call) by the time they arrived (about 7-10 minutes) I had put it out.
Lucky we had a smoke detector which alerted me.
We now have two extinguishers and a fire blanket (I had to use a jacket to beat it out)

I liked that jacket.

Cause: 'dead cinders' wrapped carefully in newspaper and thrown out.

Sub_title: videopup muppybuild
 

J'ai construi pour ma création multimédia un dérivé de muppy08.2, puppy3.01 avec muppybuild008.2 qui est un tès bon programme.
c'est une version en francais que j'ameliore depuis noel
pour l'instant je n'arrive pas a uploader sur filefront une version en francais iso de testW que j'appelle
Videopup car elle est orientee vers la creation multimedia
par contre j'ai pu telecharger le fichier addons_OO_082.sfs 236mo qui contient exe-1.03, celtx, skype_static-2.0.0.43, openofficefr-2.31, java, sylpheed-claws-3.3.1 avec correcteur fr

http://files.filefront.com/addons+OO+082sfs/;9848140;/fileinfo.html
addons_OO_082.sfs 236 mo

J'ai finalement réussi a télécharger l'iso avec seamonkey
Videopup-0082-FRiso 235 mo
http://files.filefront.com/Videopup+0082+FRiso/;9886332;/fileinfo.html

qdvdauthor-1.0.104; avidemux-2.4; Kino-1.2; rezound; pbackup; pburn-1.0
etc
pour la tester je pense qu'il faut au moins 500 megas de ram,
copier msy_082.sfs et addons_OO_082.sfs à la racine du DD puis sauver et rebooter pour avoir Ooffice etc

Lobster,
no nothing serious happened, they could controll the fire before other appartments were affected.

I just was interrupted early in sleep.
As I slept not good last week, this really slowed down development.

Now I am in northern germany.
I do checks concerning the save-files,and fix some final issues.
For example my MIME-ditor for the PCMan Filemanager still had some glitches.
It did not list MIMEtypes, that were not associated to a program.
And you could not create new ones.
This is fixed now.
The whole MIME-stuff is rather complex, and though my solution is not perfect yet, it should be ok for a release.

Somewhen next week we'll upload 008.3 in several flavours (Embryo, Server, Mini, Standard).

Mark

papos, je suis tres heureux, que muppybuild te pouvait aider Smile

Do you have the md5sum for your files, please?
I then could mirror them.

To get it, type:
md5sum addons_OO_082.sfs
md5sum Videopup-008.2-FR.iso

I also would suggest to announce it in the french forum, it might easily been overseen here inside this long Muppy-thread.

cordialement, Mark

Smile glad to hear it.
Hope your sleeping improves. I find hypno CD's that you play and put you to sleep are very good . . .
Looking forward to the new Muppys Smile

Thanks.


Embryo:
A kind of Barebones-system.
Has only Xvesa (no Xorg), and JWM+ XfileExplorer + Adie Texteditor.
There will be an additional .sfs with Gtk, so that you can use Puppys Wizards to configure it.
It is intended not as a "working" system, but as a base to build a optimized custom Mini-version.

Server is Embryo + Gtk, Minisys, Samba, Abiword, Gnumeric.
This we will use for the companies we have as customers, that use Minisys to manage everything.
Abiword and Gnumeric are not used as Desktop-applications, but as remote-controlled document converters.

Mini is less than 200 MB, good for computers with 256 RAM.
It can be extended by additional .sfs addons like office.sfs (OpenOffice + Acrobat Reader), kde.sfs, addons.sfs (Minisys, wine, samba, themes, firefox, Java etc.).

Standard is the most easy to use, it contains everything except KDE.
It needs a lot of Ram (Maybe 700 MB or more).
I see Standard as a "Teaser" for beginners, not as an optimal system, I prefer the Mini instead because of better resource-handling and flexibility.

Mark

Sub_title: A couple of Desklet Issues
 

Hello; I have found issues with a couple of the desklets supplied out of the box.

Firstly; the calendar desklet has some very peculiar ideas. For example today (Thursday March 27th) is highlighted as Easter Sunday, with Tuesday being Good Friday!

As it has the right dates for the days of the week, I guess that it's the way holidays are setup that is incorrect.

Secondly; I cannot find out how to make the weather report a suitable location. The suggested method is suitable for US locations as per weather.com, but the format doesn't seem to apply to other parts of the world. Is it possible to set up a UK location (Post Code would be easy)?

PostPosted: Fri 28 Mar 2008, 06:42    Post_subject: location for weather forecast  

Just go to www.weather.com and set your home town (or the nearest place recognized by weather.com) using the LocalWeather search field near the top of the screen. Then look at the address displayed by your browser. It should look like something like this:

http://www.weather.com/outlook/travel/businesstraveler/local/UKXX0085?from=search_city

Your city code is between local/ and the question mark. In the example above it is UKXX0085 for London. Give this to the weather desklet. It worked for my hometown (Debrecen, Hungary).

Thanks, I'll give that a try.

Later Addition

That worked fine thanks. Though I observe that the data it presents for my location are slightly different from those on weather.com online! And, as if that wasn't enough; I downloaded the Firefox add-in which also takes a feed from weather.com and that's different again!

Ho hum; it does make you wonder about all this "information" we are bombarded with day and night: just how reliable is it in reality?

MU,
Excellent breakdown on the different versions of Muppy... Great info..
Although what do you consider Muppy 8.2? Is this the standard version?
Where can I download the English ver of 'Mini'? I'd like to give it a go on a custom Muppy?
Lastly, is it possible to edit 'IceRock' in Muppy 8.2 to automatically minimize after loading so to keep the taskbar clean? I'd like to know which config file I need to edit..
Cheers mate..

Embryo and Server will only be available as special flavours of Muppy 008.3.
The new Muppy 008.3 will be available in approx. 1 week.
The most recommended version to use will be Muppy 008.3 Mini+addons.

The download for the current english Muppy 008.2 Mini is:
Mini-Muppy-008.2-EN.iso (Download-links see first message).

We wanted to release 008.3 this weekend, but found ways to optimize it for computers with only 256 MB of Ram.
Finishing this will take some more days.

I have no idea how to minimize icedock.
To prevent it to start, you could remove it from /root/.icewm/startup.

To set it up (colours, used modules), use "Muppy-Icedock" in the "Desktop"-Menu.
To tweak some internal settings, edit: /root/.icedockrc.

Maybe to skip that it is visible in the taskbar:
edit: /root/.icewm/winoptions
Add this line:
IceDock.ignoreTaskBar: 1

After restarting icewm, it is removed from the taskbar, if you move the mouse over it.

I will try to write a script, that raises/lowers it after start, maybe that has the same effect as moving the mouse over it.

Mark

I made a incorrect statement...
Actually, what I wanted to ask was is it possible to have icedock as a 'tray icon' after loading?
The same steps/procedure as if I were to right click icedock on the taskbar and select 'tray icon'.
I apologize on the confusion...
