@Beem: If I understand correctly here, these missing library files that you are finding then are for KDE358.sfs on Dingo, yes? And not for on 3.0.1 branch of Puppy, no?

I ask this Beem because I run this on my Puppy 3.0.1 and I'm not having problems with missing libfiles. Granted, I haven't tried Kmail and that's because I use TBird/SeaMail most often as it intergrates with all of my distros (one mail repository for 6 distros).

Everything else I've run, image viewers, multimedia programmes---and the like---have all run fine for me. Of course, I was also using Kirk's KDE.sfs before this and so I had done a lot of KDE software installs via GSlapt which brought in many libfiles, the qt engines, etc., which perhaps installed into the Puppy saved file itself most likely so that I may not be the best of beta-testers. Wink Perhaps I should have started this on a clean 3.0.1 install but I'm very lazy.

@Mark: I tried the Dingo install like Beem, even using the .pet file of missing libs, and I had terrible luck. While I got a kicker and taskbar I didn't get a desktop, nor could I set wallpaper, get an application menu on left-click (which I prefer having on all my KDE setups), etc. I could've gotten a desktop IF I wished to hook in the PuppyPin but if I'm going to run KDE I wish the "full experience", you know? So I wiped out Dingo and started over with just a vanilla Dingo and then placed Fluxbox onto it. (I really don't care for JWM in Puppy.) I'll save the KDE experience for my 3.0.1 where it runs superbly well. Cool

Amicalement,

@Eyes-Only
Yes the missing libraries are in the case of an install of KDE 3.5.8 on dingo.
I am not aware of reports of missing libraries in 3.01, alltho I vaguely remember one person had reported someting. I think in this thread.

So I promised to MU to test as much as I can on missing libraries and upload the latest file containing the missing libraries before I leave abroad.
Probably done on Sunday.

I think MU will make a pet for easy install for everyone.

I think I tested a great deal of the programs with most interest and found some more missing libs.
As promised I upload the archive containing them all, including the previous ones I uploaded.
I copied all these libs to /usr/lib and the programs run now..

Merci Bernard.
Are you going on holiday?

I will have a look at your files this week.

Today I'm overtired.
I rewrote huge parts of GtkBasic and recently try to track down a naty bug.
Should sleep soon, maybe I have more success when I had some sleep.

Wish you a pleasent lourney Razz

Also Koffice 1.6.3 is included.


This is so crazy... I can't find it. Not on menu, not in /usr/share/apps or other places I looked. I did try... It's installed on 3.01. By the way, you don't happen to have a build script like the old one you had for 3.5.5 do you; actually Koffice is the only thing I really want. Thanks.

/usr/bin/kword
/usr/bin/kcalc

If remember well,they should appear in the Office-menu.

/usr/share/applications/kde/kword.desktop

I'm in hurry, so cannot mount it myself at moment.

The buildscript is a wild copy of the old one with some slight changes, I hesitate to upload it, as it is messy.

Ok, here it is (40 MB):
ftp://ks301128.kimsufi.com/Muppy0083/buildsystem/mkkde.tar.gz
ftp://ks301128.kimsufi.com/Muppy0083/buildsystem/mkkde.tar.gz-md5.txt

Extract, then create 2 new folders:
mkkde/tgz
mkkde/squashfs

Then download the Slackware-packages you need tomkkde/tgz
Then run
./mkkde

In mkkde/tgz I used these Slackware-packages to build the sfs:

Beems updates are included in the other folders.
The full SFS with the updates is here:
ftp://ks301128.kimsufi.com/Muppy0083/DEUTSCH/Erweiterungen/KDE358_083.sfs
ftp://ks301128.kimsufi.com/Muppy0083/DEUTSCH/Erweiterungen/KDE358_083.sfs-md5.txt

It includes english and german.

Ok, we drive home now, if you have questions, I'll try to answer them tomorrow.
Mark

PostPosted: Thu 29 May 2008, 22:50    Post subject: It was the other one  

Sorry to bother you Mark--I was looking at the other one, 3.5.7 kde (kirk's). I had them both because I was trying to figure out what it would take to have a stand alone Koffice. I managed to get kword to work with the 50 MB 3.5.7 and the 100MB koffice from slackware plus some libraries from your 3.5.8. I'm thinking that if a stand alone koffice could be made in say 130 MB then that would be less than one-third of openoffice. But I am afraid I have about hit my limit--I don't know enough about the structure of kde and I have been going on trial and error. Maybe someone who reads this will think it might be an interesting project.

<ADD>I used koffice-1.6.3 and kdelibs-3.5.9 along with one library from gamin and one library from kdebase all from slackware and got kword running in 3.01 Mainly the libs needed symlinks such as libkofficecore.so.3.0.0 to libkofficecore.so.3. The koffice was 100M and kdelibs was 60M but surely it wouldn't need all of the kdelibs (I didn't keep track unfortunately). So that is a stand alone koffice in something under 160M, hopefully well under. No doubt some of the koffice could be removed also, which is why I am still hoping for someone who knows what they are doing to get interested Wink </ADD>

Hi,
I tried to repeat the configuration of Legendofthor - I made a totally fresh full HD install of Fat-free 3.01 on a formatted, empty hda1 partition. Then I put a md5sum checked KDE358_083.sfs file in /, renamed to be seen by the boot up manager. Then I exit to prompt and write xwin kdestart which of course doesn't work since I have to reboot, which I do immediately. The effect of this is only that I get some kernel panic similar behavior (caps lock and screen lock lamps blink and nothing starts. After a forced restart with the HW-button the computer starts - on JWM again. I think I maybe should go to the prompt at boot and then write the xwin command, but I can't see how to do that with the boot alternatives in GRUB... or am totally out riding the bicycle, as we say in Sweden...?

xwin startkde
not: xwin kdestart

If that fails, try within JWM to run from a consolewindow "kicker".
This should show some info, what is wrong.

Hi MrArne & Mark (Sorry I haven't answered your recent letter Mark Embarassed ),

If I'm not mistaken here MrArne the problem would seem to lie in the fact that you've written in the above that you've:

Quote:
"I made a totally fresh full HD install of Fat-free 3.01 on a formatted, empty hda1 partition."


...and therein lies the problem, see? The .sfs files are meant to be used through the bootmanager when running from the LiveCD and using a "pup_save.2fs" file, or from the hard drive in what's called a "Frugal Install" along with a "pup_save.2fs" file.

Mark will tell you though that all is not lost in your situation, however! And this is great to know, yes? Very Happy From the hard drive install that you and I have---we can easily click upon the .sfs file using the ROX-filer file manager. This will "mount" the .sfs file.

Then you can go to "/mnt" and you'll see a folder there of the KDE3.5.8.sfs and you can click that folder and go into it with ROX-filer. Opening a second ROX-filer and placing them side-by-side you may then copy all the files over to your hard drive install one-by-one making SURE to place them into their proper directory. Smile

Mark knows an even easier way which involves a few lines of code entered into the terminal, right Mark? Very Happy

Hmm... Mark? What would be really nice? Since you know scripting/GUIs so well? -hint! hint!- Laughing A nice little GUI that would /mount the .sfs file if placed in "/" and copy over everything, then /umount---maybe even going so far as to /fixmenus afterwards if we all say, "Pretty please with pigsears on them?" LOL! (Inside joke to any reading.)

I hope this info has helped MrArne?

Amicalement/Cheers!

no problem, take as much time as you need, we are not under pressure Smile

You click on the sfs to mount it.
It then should be mounted to for example /mnt/mnt+kde358/

Then you could copy all files by typing this in a consolewindow (using the correct path of course):
Code:
cp -ax /mnt/mnt+kde358/* /

Yes, such Puppy specific things are what I want to add to Muppy-Filer this year Smile

Hey Mark

thanks for building KDE
no small task for puppy Very Happy

I have a full Slackware 12.1 install on my HD that has KDE
and I have always used puppy USB flash installed
on several different flash memory sticks

I am downloading your KDE now

*even on slackware I had to do some minor tweaks
for the login and the mouse scroll

but KDE is so nice and easy

thanks for
sharing your work
