I have built all the dependencies from source (all 40 of them!) however I am now getting an error 'cannot find -lpython2.6' when trying to make gcompris. I compiled python 2.6 from source when building the dependencies so I must have done something wrong at some point - back to the drawing board Sad

make sure you have this folder and its .h files inside of it
/usr/include/python2.6
if its called anything else system link it to /usr/include/python2.6
also if your compiling python why not just use the one which came with the compiler? 2.5? that should of worked.

One of the dependencies, pycairo, required it. I did not compile it at the beginning and therefore some of the dependencies were compiled against different versions of python - maybe this could have been responsible for the error.

I have started again using an older version of pycairo and the included python 2.5 - hopefully it will work this time!

I've done it!

gcompris.sfs

I decided on .sfs files as it makes the installation quick and simple. This file contains the main program and all the dependencies and comes in around 55.5 mb. There is a second .sfs which includes the extra languages and voices which I am currently uploading (another 50 mb file) - I will post a link once it has finished.

I have given Gcompris a quick test and everything seems to work ok, however as I have never used the program before I am not the best person to tell whether any features are missing. If you notice anything that isn't working it is probably just a missing dependency and if you let me know I will happily recompile it.

Enjoy Wink

Fantastic. I will get my 2 year old on it. Thanks.

Just another 40 odd days to go. I could get the kids to make you a 'headover'. Razz

totally awesome; many thanks, pcampbell87.

For those who need to verify, the md5sum of gcompris.sfs is
52b12c47f532114de8c32075b5711b32

gcompris.sfs is working in puppy 4.20.
There is no sound (i have not downloaded the additional sfs yet)

gcompris.sfs does not work in EduPup (the base is Puppy 3.01) :
the sfs cannot be 'seen', even though it is in /mnt/home, and/or renamed
to include "301" eg gcompris_301.sfs

I have no sound in 4.2 either. It seems to be a gstreamer problem - I will look into it.

The admin panel (run gcompris -a) is also broken, again, I think this is a dependency problem.

Once they are fixed I will upload another .sfs. If anyone else comes across any problems just let me know and I will try my best to fix it.

sidders got the sound to work
see posts 8 Jan & 13 Jan
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=34135

that was for EduPup, but i presume the dependencies should be the same for Puppy 4.20

uh, ttuuxxx, still no sound after installing jasper-etc

The most I can say about the sound is that the sound files are included, Since I can't really start the game because I can't get by the first screen, I can't figure out the sound. Sorry, even if I run it via command line nothing really reported. I would have to get to the sound stage to debug it.
try running via the terminal
gcompris

I get the svg error in Puppy 4.1.2. I have checked and the files do exist, I think this may be related to one of the dependencies, librsvg. I used the one included in puppy rather than compiling from source.

The sound issue seems to be gstreamer related and checking this page shows that there is a known bug... unfortunately gcompris development doesn't seem very well documented and I am not sure which bug they are referring to.

Sorry for the errors guys, I am currently recompiling a few dependencies and hopefully it will be working soon.
