Is Qlabels similiar to Glabels just using different dependencies or are they radically different?

I am looking at CSV import and export from crqlog. The crqlog folks are looking at Glabels and I wondered if their instructions would be likely to work closely to Qlabels as well.

qlabels will not load from the menu and when called from rxtv I am getting a libqtxml.so.4 error - this is under Puppy 4.0 same as 3.01

Grrr, helps to have ones eyes open when doing this stuff!

I did discover that if I just clicked the qt4 PET it loaded my screen with junk and I had to stop the download, right click, and "save link as".

Why do some PETs do that and others don't?

Anyhow, it works great, thanks! Smile

Now to see if I can find some interesting templates to import and modify.

I searched for business card, postcard, and other templates and found none - it appears that development of qlabels stalled in 2007.

glabels appears to be in active development:

http://glabels.sourceforge.net/
http://freshmeat.net/projects/glabels/?branch_id=32486&release_id=146844

I did not, however, find a reference to a repository anywhere for templates other than mailing label templates posted to the freshmeat and sourceforge sites.

Hello Edoc,

I actually haven't used the app myself! I just uploaded it as I
saw your query. The problem with glabels is that it needs gnome
libraries to compile.

Regarding templates, I'm not at my computer at moment, but aren't
there any under /usr/share/qlabels directory? Also, I wonder if it would
be able to use templates from glabels?

I really appreciate you posting it as a PET!

I looked and all of the templates I see are for mailing labels and CD's, nothing for postcards.

I will try to figure out how to create 4 postcards per sheet of paper and to fix on them an image (or images) and text then flip the page and add some additional text and perhaps a second image but I am not much of an artist (digital or otherwise) so it sure would be good to find something already done that I may modify!

I looked in the files and all I see are mailing labels and CD labels.

Yes,

as you say, it looks like the templates are for CDs & business cards. So do you have any of the Kde .sfs files? If you did, then you could try Sage's suggestion of kreetingkard.

Or you might be able to create your own:

I am confused ... not unusual ... Embarassed

I am uncertain how kreetingkard helps. I need a double-sided postcard, his look like fold-over cards. Also, I need to be able to interface with cqrlog and so far they have only tested interfacing with glabels.

I will have a look at the other links to see if something may be created there and imported to glabels and/or qlabels.

I am uncertain how much of gnome would have to be added to 4.00 for glabels to work correctly. Any idea, please?

Edoc,

from the glabels website:

Quote:

System Requirements

gLabels is designed to run on GNOME 2.16+, but more specifically it requires the following libraries or newer.

* GTK+-2.10.x
* LIBGNOME[UI]-2.16.x
* LIBXML-2.6.x
* LIBGLADE-2.6.x


So, AFAIK, your options are:

1) Trying to somehow get qlabels to meet your specs
2) Download a kde .sfs & trying kreetingkards
3) Download a gnome .sfs & try glabels
4) Find a freeware windows program, and seeing whether it would work via wine
5) Either download teenpup, and use the glabels that comes with that, or look for a pupversion that has gnome libraries...muppy?
6) Try creating your own postcards using gimp/ooffice as mentioned in the last two links.

Are these huge files or might they create a conflict with existing 4.0 or 4.1 files, please?

Might there be dependencies for these dependencies? (Yes, I have wrestled with Debian and several other distros in the past and been lost in the dependency maze.)

See this post here, and in particular Mu's response.

Gnome is a dependency-hell


The simplest way to try glabels, would be to download Wow's gnome .sfs, from this thread (85Mbytes), follow his steps, then download a slackware compiled glabels from glabels-2.2.2-i686-1as.tgz, and extract this archive & copy everything to it's proper location.

But, since I'm only on miserable dialup, and not particularly interested in gnome anyway, I can't be your tester.

What about investigating some of the other options I mentioned? Do you have a functional wine? If you did, I'm sure a quick google would find some freeware postcard programs for you to test.

Wow, just read WOW's thread - sound like a BIG undertaking.

I am not where I am willing to trash my 4.0 install to get Gnome running but it sounds as though someone has succeeded without doing that.

Perhaps WOW can post a PET to add Gnome for Puppy folks who already have working 4.0 installs.

Right now it is way to big of a project merely to allow the use of glabels.

The advantage of glabels with cqrlog is that cqrlog will output a bunch of data which is then imported into glabels and printed to a variety of fields - saves a lot of time!

Thanks for your assistance - guess I will try some of the other options you suggested and just manually record the data on the cards.
