Subject description: spell check, thesaurus, internet links - How to use?
 

OpenOfficeJRE321.sfs is fast, efficient, compact.

But how does one add/use an English spell checker, thesaurus, and the internet menu links?

I have begun using OpenOffice heavily and miss these things. What am I doing wrong?

EDIT SOLVED: I found I had to add the spellcheck extension, /en_US.oxt. This in turn allowed me to activate hunspell.

Thesaurus and menu internet links are less important, but suggestions would be welcome.

Subject description: Is the amarok_430-sfs4.sfs file OK for Quirky NOP 1.2?
 

Hello,

I am having some problem adding a SFS file to my Quirky 1.2 NOP.
Her is what I have done:
I downloaded the amarok_430-sfs4.sfs file and put it in my /mnt/home folder.
The bootmanager does not seem to recognize the file. After I rename the file to "amarok.sfs" the bootloader does recognize the file and all seems OK.
After a restart of Puppy, I do find Amarok in the Multimedia-tab and after clicking on it I can see the Amarok splash screen for a moment but nothing else happens after that.
Am I missing something here or is the amarok_430-sfs4.sfs simply not usable with Quirky NOP?
Thanks for your kind reply.
Ronny

Probably not suitable. I think the Amarok you have there would have been compiled for Puppy 4.3*
Try starting it from a terminal, just open a terminal window and type amarok The output in the terminal window might tell you what is wrong.

Hi Dave,
Thank you for your reply.
I tried the amarok-1.4-lucid.sfs form one of the links you provided but still no luck.
I have a frugal install on an ext3 partition and after putting it in my home folder and adding it thru the bootmanager, Puppy does not start anymore.
I get the message ..... performing a switch root to the filesystem .... kernel panic - not synching : attempted to kill init....
Same thing when I try to add the file to Puppy on USB stick.

So still no luck, I will have to search the forums on Puppy again. A good reason perhaps to learn a bit more about Linux and Puppy!!!
If I find a solution, I will post it here.
I really want to ad a music player style amarok or rhythmbox to my Puppy.

PostPosted: Sun 17 Oct 2010, 12:15    Post subject: Keeping spell checker current
Subject description: in OpenOffice
 

Good morning,

Still using and liking QNop 1.2 for my only business computer.

Here's a helpful hint for those who, like me, keep several different pup-save files, sometimes switching between them for test or backup reasons and who heavily use OpenOffice Writer.

The list of words added is standard.dic, which is normally inside the pupsave. It can be moved outside it, e.g. to /mnt/home /Repository/Oitxtensions. This prevents having to re-add all the words when using a different pup-save. To do this:

1. (first pupsave only) move /root/.config/.openoffice.org/3/user/wordbook/standard.dic to /mnt/home/Repository/OoExtensions/
(other pupsaves) delete /root/.config/.openoffice.org/3/user/wordbook/standard.dic

2. In terminal:
# ln -s /mnt/home/Repository/OoExtensions/standard.dic /root/.config/.openoffice.org/3/user/wordbook/
#

3. Note that /root/.config/.openoffice.org/3/user/wordbook/standard.dic appears as a symlink (with a green arrow).

I know this is a common technique, but someone might appreciate it being spelled out, so I did.

Hello Very Happy

I have a question about xfce and puppy.I have to say I like the Quirky NOP, but I miss some stuff from lupu 5.1.1. So I was thinking about change from jwm to xfce. Everything works fine. But there is one little thing. I have no idea how to bring xfce to mount mi drives on the desktop. NOP can do this. So I am asking how to managed it in XFCE. When I click on desktop settings and mount option nothing is happening. The mount system works somehow different in puppy and xfce can not handle it.
Any idea how to manage it .... Sad

This may be what you are looking for, hotpupx.pet, this pet is for NOP 301 but may work for you, there is a thread about it here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=27319.

PostPosted: Wed 24 Nov 2010, 13:20    Post subject:  Resize personal storage file  

Hi folks, I am new to Puppy, but an "old timer" when it comes to Linux...
I searched the forum but not found the answer so far.

I currently run Quirky NOP 1.2 and made a 32 MB personal storage file, which sure is too small when running firefox and installing some plugins.

Now, I found the solution to resizing the storage file with "Menu > Utility > Resize personal storage file" and the red flashing window thingy tells me "strongly recommended to resize or delete files", but there is no such entry as "Resize personal storage file"...

Any ideas?

Can I resize the storage file with the shell/console?
If yes, how?

PostPosted: Sat 27 Nov 2010, 03:19    Post subject:  Firefox / Lastpass  

Another problem occurred:
I installed my favourite and needed FFx plugins: Noscript, Adblock Plus and Lastpass.
Now, NoScript and Adblock Plus work okay (like NoScript having its icon in the Status Bar), but I not get the Lastpass icon, that is a menu.
I need to type the URL to the lastpass vault by hand (or Dr. Copy and Mr. Paste it, since that chrome:// address won't work as link from a local page), but then I lack some of the entries and possibilities the Lastpass menu gives me.

I already tried via disabling the Tiny Menu plugin, but to no prevail, I just have not been able to get the Lastpass icon (that is a menu).
By default it is shown between the URL bar and the Search bar.


So far it worked with all Seamonkey and Firefox versions I use just fine, but it seems the FFx version for Quirky NOP 1.2 was tweaked too much.

Any ideas what to do so that I can see / get the Lastpass icon (that is a menu)?


[hr]

And another one: what is the root password to access the virtual console?
I found nothing in file:///usr/share/doc/home.htm ...

Cheers!

Subject description: It's quiet here.
 

Not much happening here, and I guess that's good - gray left us a well-polished puppy. Heavily adapted, it's all I use.

Hope he is well, maybe quietly preparing a new surprise for us Wink

By the way, I see the Nop repository has disappeared, along with all of Caneri's. What's up there?
