Dingo,
You have to do a full reboot to get xorg_xorg_full_dri-7.3.pet to take effect.

Caneri,
Will have a look at scim. Don't have a clue how to test if it works but I'll set it up as listed by kjoe at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=27967&start=570 and see what happens.

PostPosted: Wed 21 Oct 2009, 09:49    Post subject: SFS for Calibre?  

Hi,

Since ChoicePup already has an sfs for FBreader would it be possible to create and test an sfs for Calibre?
http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/

"calibre is a one stop solution to all your e-book needs. It is free, open source and cross-platform in design and works well on Linux, OS X and Windows. calibre is meant to be a complete e-library solution and thus includes library management, format conversion, news feeds to ebook conversion, as well as e-book reader sync features and an integrated e-book viewer."

Features:
Library Management
Format conversion (all major ebook formats can be converted from)
Syncing to ebook reader devices
Fetching news from the web and converting it into ebook form
Viewing many different ebook formats
Giving you access to your book collection over the internet using just a browser/email client

It has a lot of dependencies:
Package Minimum Version
python 2.6
Python Imaging Library 1.1.6
libusb 0.1.12
Qt 4.5.1
PyQt 4.5.1
python-mechanize 0.1.11
ImageMagick 6.3.5
xdg-utils 1.0.2
lxml 2.1.5
python-dateutil 1.4.1
BeautifulSoup 3.0.5
dnspython 1.6.0
poppler 0.12.0
podofo 0.7
libwmf 0.2.8

Thanks for your work.

I will have a look after I work on scim. That is a lot of dependencies.

Thanks,

Another thing I forgot to point is that Calibre is frequently updated (one week release schedule) and the changes are pretty radical.

So, as some releases may be more stable than other, have no rush in looking into it.

You can follow the development in this forum:

And the changelog:

Hi jrb,
Thanks for the interest in scim and languages support.

It might be a good plan to talk to Irihapeti before you get to far into a scim.sfs in case there is already work done to make it an easier task.

I think a .pet for scim would be around 28mb or less but it's a guess so far from me.

Eric

Thanks for taking an interest in Scim.

I think kjoe may have got slightly carried away and installed more packages than are needed. Either that, or he's seriously multi-lingual. Smile

There are instructions on the wiki at http://puppylinux.org/wikka/HowToSetUpScim, http://puppylinux.org/wikka/GetScimWorkingAfterInstall and http://puppylinux.org/wikka/MakeScimWorkWithJavaAndTerminal The latter one also helps solve the problem of non-latin characters displaying as question marks in the terminal and dialog boxes.

One thing we may need to keep in mind is that there are some basic packages and configurations common to all installations, and other packages that will vary according to what language(s) they want to use. The bulkiest stuff is probably the locale files, and I imagine that most people would be using only one of those at a time.

Please feel free to ask questions if you need to. There is certain to be something that hasn't been explained as well as it could be.

I have just added a summary of what SFS_Linker-431bk-1.0.pet does to the develper notes on page1 of this thread.

Jrb,

I noticed the thorny "403 forbidden" problem which you somehow corrected in the sub 3 Choicepup versions, is reappearing in the Choicepup3 version.

I took a working "ch-min-pplog-1.1.sfs" file, converted it to SFS 4, tried it on Choicepup4.3 and got the "403 forbidden" error. Checked all the permissions and anything else I could think of and nothing seems to work.

I should note that my tests are all on a usb hard drive frugal install.

Any ideas?

Regards,
s

I noticed that too. One of the first things I checked for. Sad

Sadly, the way I solved it in ChoicePup412 was to add the ChoicePup options one step at a time to Puppy412 and create a pup_412.sfs and test to make sure it worked. Then I deleted one standard program at a time and tested. When it failed to work I went back a step and deleted something else, eventually ending up with a package that worked.

This is on my list of things to do with Puppy431 but I'm currently overextended on several other projects, on and off computer. Hoping to get on it in another couple of weeks.

Sorry, J

jrb; Just a suggestion that I`ll be repeating all over the forum...
Start developing with Dpup, I really think it`s Puppy`s future.
One of the few Puppies with a solid base and a gazillion apps.!
I and others have had problems with most of the 4xx Puppies...

Dpup is not problem free, but it stands a very good chance.
It doesn`t have dselect or Synaptic package managers working yet,
but mount-only SFS files are the new package, so it doesn`t matter!
We need a ".deb package" to "SFS mount-only package" converter.
Focusing on Debian and it`s packages makes development easier.

Looking toward a truly solid, new and better direction for Puppy.

Most Puppy repos use this if they have a login.
