PostPosted: Thu 30 Sep 2010, 19:06    Post subject: pmusic flaw  

When I played Audio CD's (that I had burnt) with pmusic 1.3.1
I noticed that the motor of my CD drive was working too hard for the first minute of
the song and for each song of the CD. Commercially burnt CD's didn't have this
problem. I reported this problem to the developer Zigbert
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=31206&start=600

He basically pinned the problem on ffmpeg and said that there was nothing
he could do.

By the way the program pCD doesn't have this problem so you should always
use that for playing CD's if it's available.

PostPosted: Thu 30 Sep 2010, 19:26    Post subject: set_hwclock_type  

The command at the terminal to set the clock type is 'set_hwclock_type'

Barry discusses this at

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=01616

and here's the explanation

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=41680

This is why all recent puppy iso's have setting the
clock type in the menu so it's easy to set.

Forum member shinobar made it part of his countrywizard-0.7.pet.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=58312
I assume that countrywizard can be installed in pfluxlite.
I'll try it tonight.

Thanks for replies.

Found that pmusic plays audio cds without this problem, so sweet as.

Had a look at the mplayer cache mentioned, but altering values had no effect. I think this is intended for streaming audio rather than audio cds.

PostPosted: Sat 02 Oct 2010, 16:35    Post subject: pcd 1  

I installed an old version of pCD on pfluxlite and it worked
perfectly. I highly recommend it over pmusic if you just want to
play CD
_______________________________________

I tried to install countrywizard by shinobar but it gave errors at
the terminal.

So to get the right time what I do is set the right timezone (-4 for me)
then at the terminal I type 'set_hwclock_type'

The file /etc/clock is changed by this command I guess??

All I have to say is PfluxLite is great! I have been looking for a very lite version of Lucid 5.1.1 and it was perfect.

My only issue is the installer bombs. I was able to install Puppy 5.1.1 on the same machine with no problems which has me puzzled. It goes through the install all the way through and even installs grub. But when I go to boot the new install, the only thing there is grub. weird Question

Really weird 'cause that should be exactly the same as Puppy...you can of course manually copy the cd to a folder then point grub to it...that's what I do everytime I do a frugal anyway...I can walk you through that if you want...

Subject description: adding items to menu
 

Seems that adding items to menu is pretty straightforward but I can't figure out how to add the correct commands to display pwidgets' add and remove widgets window.

Sorry, that one I don't know, so I'll default to either dejan or 01micko on that one...I haven't run widgets on fluxbox... Confused

maxpro4u, Do I understand this correctly? Widgets work ok but the gui to switch (add/remove) widgets is not? Issuing the command "pwidgets" should do it, if not then something is wrong! Maybe try redownloading Pwidgets, perhaps the pet got corrupted (it has happened to me before, various pets).

Steve, as I understand, you are still using roxdesktop, there should be no issues with Pwidgets. It normally becomes challenging in environments like xfce!

Your issue with pupflux lite (failed installation) is probably the wrong version of 'disktype', (woof is known to grab wrong versions at times), we had this issue in 5.1 beta testing and it sounds the same.

HTH

Cheers, oh and nice job!

I must have entered the command wrong-after re-entering the correct command-it works as usual.

Is 01micko giving you trouble steve_s?

We would like to have a version of the fluxbox wm available in the puppy-lucid repo for easy install into Lucid 5.2. We would want to test it and configure it for 5.2 of course. Is there any chance you would be interested in preparing a pet or sfs of the fluxbox you prepared for Pupflux? Or is there already a pet or sfs you would recommend. We are on a relaxed development cycle so there is at least a couple of weeks if you want to do some customizing. Thanks.

I used the one that dejan555 came up with; it works great. I of course tweaked the menu and a couple of other things, but his fluxbox was the start...please see here.

*Edit: I would be glad to further edit and ad to it, but I am open to y'all's suggestions; please tell me what you think, either here or via pm...I have time to do edits as suggested...
