There was one problem for me, my blog. If you bring up my blog and look at the code blocks, long lines are wrapped, overlapping and unreadable. On SM, Firefox and Internet Explorer, the long code lines do not wrap.

Code blocks should display as-is, long lines should not wrap, and even if they do they should not overlap.

Annoying, because that one bug makes Opera 11 unusable for me.


This is odd. I installed the Opera 11 final (build 1156) from the "deb-other" package as a static install (just unpacked the archive). This allows me to use the same configuration on all my puppy installations on a particular machine.

In any case, the code lines do not wrap or overlap in Wary 500, Lupu 5.2 or Lighthouse 5.0G. Perhaps, Opera does not like your video chip. I am running an nvidia GeForce FX 5200 card with the commercial driver 71.86.14 installed with the video update utility (for Wary 500).

Subject description: libx264 encoding doesn't work
 

Making 'MPEG4 AVC' fails using FFconvert in Wary.
The files in '/usr/share/ffmpeg' in Wary seems corrupt.

Replace all the directory '/usr/share/ffmpeg' with the one from ffmpeg-runall-0.6-i686-p4.pet.
Then the converting into MPEG4 AVC works.

Can the urxvt screen and lettering be enlarged? I would like background: "LightYellow"; foreground: "navy"; and font: 10x20. Alteratively, I would like to use rxvt with these same settings.

Try Sakura, superb and easily configurable:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=49062.

I am familiar with Sakura from Lighthouse Puppy and haven't installed it in Wary 500, but it certainly is worth a try. You will need the VTE dependencies.

I would prefer to stick with a fixed and useable urxvt or rxvt until I decide that Wary 5.0 is what I want to work with for a while.

If I stay with Wary 5.0 I will, probably, try to install mrxvt and Midnight Commander.

jamesbond, you are right.
Code:
[ "$PDEV1" = "" ] && DROPOUT="Boot partition"

The line 677 above shoud be simply removed.
Code:
#[ "$PDEV1" = "" ] && DROPOUT="Boot partition"

And needs PDEV1 check before grep at line 688 or so.
Quote:
#well, to get this far, PDEV1 has been supplied.
[ "$DEV1FS" = "" -a "$PDEV1" != "" ] && DEV1FS="`echo "$LESSPARTS0" | grep "${PDEV1}|" | cut -f 2 -d '|'`"

The screen of urxvt is very small about 150mm x 90mm the lettering is less than 3mm - just too small for my old eyes. I can't read this.

Can this be fixed? This really kills Wary for me.


from an earler ?wary fix:

Try adding at the end of your menu.lst or whatever equivalent startline

video=640x480

eg with grub the line becomes:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 pmedia=atahd video=640x480

fixed my problem

Which version of Chromium are you trying to install? I have successfully installed Chromium 6 and now 10 on Wary5 and Quirky130.

You can download libgconf from http://sites.google.com/site/quirkyuk/quirky-tweaks

Chromium 10 also requires libgcrypt and libgpg-error which I will add to the site when I update it later today. Be warned that Chromium 10 definitely does not run on some hardware (and this may also apply to Chromium 6.)

Hi Friends users, I have a feedback work with Abiword. My Wary 5 boots from USB. Still in testing. Abiword chrashed when clik in menu : edit/find

For me it didn't crash, but Edit -> Find only works once. The second and subsequent times that I chose it in the menu, nothing happened. However, Find and Replace continued to work.

Not good.

Apparently it does scaling of document with several options
to be more convenient to user.

I haven't had time to test though.

I am sorry to say that this fix didn't work for me. I tried a couple of different video sizes in several diffent places in my menulist, but nothing seemed to change the tiny urxvt screen or lettering size.

I encountered this many years ago when using regedit Find in 'doze. The pointer gets stuck at the last position in the file that it 'found' the request. One had to physically move back to the beginning of the file to search and find again. There were other similar instances in 'doze apps. M$ never fixed such trivia! No idea whether this is relevant or helpful, much less how to fix it.

I tried Iron 8.0.555, which in Lupu 5.2 is running well.

After adding the namend libs, I get this message in Wary 5 with a new created save file before (only the libs added):

Quote:

You probably need to add or change some symlinks. In Wary5 for Chromium I have these:

/lib/libc.so.6 is a symlink to /lib/libc-2.10.1.so
/lib/libz.so.1 is a symlink to /lib/libz.so.1.2.3
/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 is a symlink to /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.10

If you do not have the necessary libraries you can download them from http://sites.google.com/site/quirkyuk/quirky-tweaks .

** Please backup your warysave.2fs file before you try this! **

Sorry to hear there's a dissatisfied customer. I can do colours.
Code:
urxvt -bg lightyellow -fg navy -geometry 135x50

Two out of three ain't bad. (meatloaf) Wink

EDIT
Wary has a 10x20 font, not very appealing. Maybe 9x15 would suffice?

Code:
urxvt -bg yellow -fg navy -fn 10x20

Perhaps someone can help you to make more fonts/sizes?

urxvt --help
urxvt -help
