Subject description: "Failed to load the PPM image"
 

When trying to print anything, I get error: "Failed to load the PPM image".
What would that mean?

Post subject: Re: How to enable printing on fluppy?

In Fluppy, all the printer/scanner stuff is in a separate sfs package. See the first page of this thread.

Regarding your Samsung printer, read here.

With all the changes you have made to your Fluppy setup, it's hard to know if the Samsung PET will work. If it does not, you may have to start over and get the print/scan sfs package installed.

I notice that your SCX-4200 is also a scanner. The Samsung Unified package contains scanner software, but the setup is more complicated than for the printer. If you want, I can try to build a package for it.

Subject description: no packages or pets to install
 

I have a frugal install of Fluppy 13 (sure works great on my dinosaur laptop) and the package manager doesn't have any packages or pets to install. When I refreshed the list, I see an error in retrieving the package file. How can I fix this?

Subject description: How does the nationality filter work?
 

Every now and then I will be on a site and click a link and get an error saying that I am not from the correct region or something.

Is this a setting somewhere in the Web browser or is such a site looking at the IP address or something?

Is there a way to be region-neutral?

Just curious, it seemed odd for the Internet to be regionally-blocked.

The site is looking at your IP address, and concluding that it owes you no favours. Surprised Surprised So says just go away.

No. But you can go through a proxy to make it seem that you are coming from a region the site regards as friendly. Confused

Bandwidth costs money, and some sites are reluctant to put money where they can be certain it will produce little or no return. Some UK & USA radio stations cater only to local listeners. TV stations often make their online videos available only to their local viewers.

For example, if a tv station wants to sell its own production to overseas stations, it won't be able to ask a very high price if the whole series can be viewed online for free by people in that country. So it places restrictions on who can view for free. Laughing

But if you are sufficiently determined, there are always ways to get around any obstacle placed in your path. Wink

I was. I have two laptops with the exact same issue.
Looking through the .packages directory & files, all seems in order. I'm stumped.

Subject description: Moonlight for Midori?
 

Any news about Moonlight (Linux version of Silverlight) for Midori, please?

Might running this risk breaking Midori and/or other apps?
http://www.go-mono.com/moonlight/download.aspx

Quote:

Moonlight should work on any modern 32bit and 64bit Linux distributions under Firefox versions 3.0 through 4.x, as well as Google Chrome, from both stable and dev channels

We make sure that the plug-in available from this site works on the following platforms: SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11, openSUSE 11.x, Ubuntu 9.10, and Fedora 12.

http://www.go-mono.com/moonlight/faq.aspx

I found this reference to it:

Quote:
Web Application Support

Many of you may be thinking “looks fine and all, but can it run Flash/Java/HTML5/AJAX?” and many other acronyms. In short, Midori seems to be capable of using many of Firefox’s content plugins. Flash, which had been previously installed on the Ubuntu Lucid test machine used for this review, worked immediately in Midori. Moonlight (the open source Silverlight implementation) did not function in Midori but the Quicktime, Google Talk, and Java plugins seem to be working properly.

WLM is short for Windows Live Messanger which replaced MSN messager years ago.

If you read the link, you will see the the msn-pecan plugin is a replacement for the msn plugin. There's no reason to have them both.

Just try it with your normal MSN credentials and see if it works. There's not continuity because these are alpha/beta/experimental releases. I change stuff around to see what works best.

Hello, dont know if you are aware but:

Microsoft changed things in the WLM protocol and pidgin cannot connect now using pecan.

the MSN protocol in pidgin connects just fine.

Thanks for pupeee and flupy BTW Very Happy very mature and nice looking !
