I like pclock .35. It requires pschedule 1.0 or 1.02

It could replace the much bigger lightsword alarm

It shows the page reasonably well and it's fast.

don570,

Thanks for the feedback and testing.. I have made some changes, some of which were in the pipeline anyway, but I brought them forward so they'll be in the next ISO..

As for an HTML viewer - I got the best!! Elinks is very light, LOADS of features and works without X... No other can beat that! Wink

Yes, there's probably too many timer apps, but the are all tiny - even lightsword total about 50kb.. No point removing them..

I will update the /usr/local/bin/defaulthtmlviewer file, and a few others, so they use elinks out of the box. I will keep the browser-installer as the defaultbrowser - so its easy to install the one you want...

I also have updated mtpaint - which means I had to add jasper to make it work. So that's an extra 250kb added, at least... Sad Nothing else needs jasper - can't mtpaint be compiled without? If so, what features would be missing without jasper?

But I updated mhwaveedit, its 5kb smaller, and I removed a lot of icons in /usr/share/icons, replacing some with symlinks to other actual icons, found elsewhere.. I also updated pschedule to 1.0.2, and added its NLS package as well.. There was no real need, but I thought I might as well..

Lame is already included BTW. I will add pupsnapshot and its NLS (still needs Russian), but I will not remove PupSnap - it's too good. I've yet to add Zathura GUI - there's too many right click options in there, I need to have a look at the package, cut it down and then add it..

** EDIT:: don, please look at the Zathura GUI thing, especially loading it from the menu, nearly always get a 'file not found' error when loading anything from my mounted drives (/media/Home [sda1]/files/downloads/***.pdf, to be precise)

Probably needs quotes around the ${file} ... common breakage with spaces or special characters

Yeah I've done that just now, gonna give it a test.. Needed a bit of hacking to be Akita-friendly as well... But should work OK now, let's see...

***EDIT:

Seems to be working OK now Smile good stuff...

I hope to get a new ISO up very soon, here is what I want to do next:

Code:
- i18n wizardwizard, xserverwizard, input-wzard
- get ES translations for frugalinstaller, xorgwizard, pupshutdownconfig, others
- get FR translations for eventmanager, others
- speed up the PPM, especially the dep-check function
- speed up whatever happens immediately after clicking on a .pet in the PPM (seems to take ages)
- get wifi working on my EeePC 1000HA!
- maybe make xorgwizard find the 'intel' driver first time! (it works)
- updated PupControl to 1.6.6 (thx 2 radky)
- test the 'wizardpen' driver
- find things to remove (large things, not 20kb apps)
- GUI for zdrv_cutr
- OpenGL installer
- Quickpet thing


And here's an update of what I've done recently:

Code:
- updated /usr/sbin/delayedrun,flash-get
   - added auto flash install check thing to end of delayedrun, hacked to run flash-get
   - also, flash-get now auto-installs the flash-player-preferences stuff if Flash-10 was installed

- added french .mo translation file, for net-setup
- i18n'd pcdripper, added english and spanish .mo files
- i18n'd eventmanager, added english and spanish .mo files
- re-added i18n'd pup-advert-blocker! (no idea what happened there - .. EDIT... firedog!)
- fixed /usr/sbin/petget, "ABORT INSTALL" button now actually works again.. cutting edge stuff  ;)

- updated all in /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/locale/... from wary511q
- updated drivers-alternate, input/ and linux/ in /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/... from wary511q
- updated to Xorg binary from wary51x (saves 300kb)

- updated browser-installer to 1.1
   - now checks if browser already installed, and asks to run it
   - now asks to run newly installed browser, if it installed OK
   - updated translations
   
- fixed woofy: cp commands now use --remove-destination
- updated jwm_menu_create to 0.4, then customised
   - added translations, added 'business' category, added 'refresh menus' entry, now uses 'puppyhelp' for Help entry
- added puppyhelp GUI from shinobar/L18L... still keeping old customised 'pman'
   - updated JWM menu to use puppyhelp (/etc/xdg,jwm_menu_create,puppydesktop)
- updated fixmenus
    - now simply loads jwm_menu_create
    - restart jwm if running
- updated initrd.gz
   - contains printf - cos rc.sysnit now uses printf, and ash
- updated mtpaint and mhwaveedit
- added jasper, libjasper (required for mtpaint)
- updated zathura_gui and pschedule, added NLS for both
- updated indexgen.sh - now just exits, does nothing...
   - so dropdown in main help page not updated by PPM
   - (it mostly just loads a google search page anyway!)
- added /usr/share/doc/welcome1stboot (also de, ru)
- updated /usr/share/doc/nls: now contains all relevant apps
- added icons from Wary512 to /usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons
- cleaned up icons in /usr/share/pixmaps and /usr/share/icons
- added more translations to .desktop files (definitely need checking!!)
- i18n'd pcdripper: added de and ru
- updated 23oz jwm theme, really nice now
- removed Asunder and RipOff, we still have pcdripper, pCD and pmusic!
- updated defaulthtmlviewer and defaultbarehtmlviewer, now use elinks

I've attached an i18n'd pppoe.. I think rodin.s made it...

Anyway, wuwei, if you can test this and report back how it works, that will be great (NOTE, it does not yet include my update for auto-symlinking to /root/Startup, after successful connection)...

I hope you can open this archive!

here is the start of a script to optimize the contents of a directory (for example before you run dir2sfs for the pupXXX.sfs)

Code:
#!/bin/sh
for FILE in `find $1`; do
   case `file ${FILE}` in
      *XML*)xmllint --noblanks ${FILE} > ${FILE}~ && mv -f ${FILE}~ ${FILE} || rm -f ${FILE}~ ;;
      *PNG*)optipng -o7 ${FILE} &;;
      *JPEG*)jpegtran -optimize -copy none ${FILE} > ${FILE}~ && mv -f ${FILE}~ ${FILE} || rm -f ${FILE}~ ;;
      *"gzip compressed data"*)zcat ${FILE}|gzip -c9 > ${FILE}~ && mv -f ${FILE}~ ${FILE} || rm -f ${FILE}~ ;;
      *"bzip2 compressed data"*)bzcat ${FILE}|bzip2 -c9 > ${FILE}~ && mv -f ${FILE}~ ${FILE} || rm -f ${FILE}~ ;;
      *"xz compressed data"*)xzcat ${FILE}|xz -cze9 > ${FILE}~ && mv -f ${FILE}~ ${FILE} || rm -f ${FILE}~ ;;
      *"ELF 32-bit LSB shared object"*)strip --strip-unneeded -R .note -R .comment ${FILE};;
      *"ELF 32-bit LSB executable"*)strip --strip-all -R .note -R .comment ${FILE};;

      #*"Zip archive data"*)unzip ${FILE}; zip -9ym .....;;#TODO (zip doesnt do pipes and extracts to multiple dirs/files vs a single file)
      *);;
   esac
done

rdfind $1
defaulttexteditor results.txt
#DEV,DOC,#NLS? see new2dir
#static libs *"current ar archive"*

needs rdfind and optipng ... the rest are in DEVX

Why not upgrade yaf-splash?

Why isn't Notecase installed?

Is the icon pmusic 1.8.3 can replace pcd and Asunder.
It can even do some conversions. So if you're looking
to cut the size down further there's lots of applications
that can be axed. Bacon recorder replaces precord.

Yes it works fine, thank you.

I unpacked the archive and copied the contents of the folder "pppoe" into /usr/sbin, overriding any previous relevant files. Reboot and the connection is established. (This was in an existing savefile).
Same success in a fresh pfix=ram and no savefile. It works with fixed DNS and with DNS unset.
So, this is good.


The only thing I am not sure of is....what did you change?

PS: When starting pfix=ram I noticed that the Personalized Settings come up twice. Once as they should immediately after booting, and the second time after restarting X. Is that intentionally?

This application apparently misses some codecs.

I tried to convert a small MPG to AVI with xvid and mp3 codec. No dice. It seems to be missing the needed codecs. You might want to look into the same program in Lucid 528. Seems to have no problems there.

PostPosted: Thu 25 Aug 2011, 01:24    Post subject: Screenshots  

Usually Puppy has mtpaint screen shot, which is fine for entire screen shots.
Akita contains PupSnap and that has much more options.
But...it is not retaining the settings from a previous shot. And with 8 positions to fill in, that is a bit cumbersome to do for each and every little shot.

I'd prefer all settings to be saved, once a shot is taken. With the next one, I can just change the file name, maybe the location, but retain all other 6 or 7 positions.

Tried the /usr/local/pupsnap directory, but couldn't find anything where one would change the default settings.

That's awesome, I tried running strip on a dir, before rebuilding as an SFS, but it crashed my PC - had to reboot.. I think it had something to do with absolute symlinks pointing to files in my actual filesystem... But I'm gonna try yours today Very Happy Thanks

Many scripts rely on its timer function, as 01micko states at the bottom, I like zigbert and 01micko, prefer yaf-splash where possible. I may add gtkdialog-splash, as its tiny, but I don't think anything needs it.. And the VAST majority of scripts that use it, do not use the only function it has, that is worth adding - UTF8 support..

Notecase is big, I dont use it myself, its in the PPM if anyone wants it.. Pupphelp-101 is a good reason to have it, but it's not localised.. The final release will contain a custom, localised help file. I might include only the Pupphelp-101 file, so it can be easily viewed after installing notecase.

And yes, I could remove pCD and pcdripper and Pawdioconvert - using only pmusic for CD ripping and audio conversion, but they total about 60kb, so there's not much point, really.. I could just as easily remove a wallpaper image.

I have no problem with precord, why remove it? It works fine, doesn't it? What advantages does Bacon recorder have?

**EDIT: I'm probably gonna add bacon recorder anyway, its small, its got NLS, its got right click options.. right?

The pppoe GUI and terminal messages should be localised, at least in German, I think, I'll have to re-check, it might be Russian... But the important thing is that it connected the same, with no problems.. Very Happy

shinobar did this intentionally.. I agree that it doesn't seem to make much sense when switching locales, but after switching Xorg settings, then it does make sense to see it again. I have often thought about skipping the 'Personalize Settings' GUI after it's been run once and X restarted, moving straight onto 'Step 2' instead... Not sure how to do this just yet...
