PostPosted: Fri 31 Oct 2014, 17:12    Post subject: Sandbox question  

Hello,
Sandbox is really cool--hadn't looked at it much before. Now I'd like to write a script to fire up libreoffice in a sandbox. Is there a way to pass an argument so libreoffice is automatically executed in the sandbox after it starts?
Thanks

Edit: modified line 222 of rw-sandbox.sh as follows:
Code:
chroot $FAKEROOT $2
I'm not that comfortable messing with James's scripts! Confused but
# rw-sandbox.sh /path/libreoffice libreoffice
now seems to work.

Fatdog64 700b2 is working again for me! FD seems to be well on its way to being the best puppylinux based distro (IMO)

Just a questions though... Slap-get is installed by default, but I couldn't get it to work. I tried reinstalling it with Package Manager, but I'm still getting "command not found". Any suggestions on how to get it to work?

BTW, I still had to use Unetbootin to finalize my FD install. Has anyone else been able to use FatDog64 Installer with an external usb3 partitioned SSD (using the bios select to boot)? If so, which "bootloader option" do you use?

My wifi on my Acer one 725-0687 oddly does not work. NEVER had that problem on past FD64s. However liking the clean and quick xwindows. It almost equals the blob drivers in the video cards tested. Very wowed on my minimac and support for hfs+ builtin. can I place the boot files and point grub to them within hfs+?

We intend people to use Gslapt for the package manager. I haven't tried slap-get.

Is this a video problem? With beta1 there was a report of video problems with an Aspire one. That one had an odd ball Intel graphics chip that's not supported by the xf86-video-intel driver.

Last I read hfs+ support was not good in Linux. I wouldn't do it.

my Acer wifi worked this morning, then a kernel panic.. not sure if related. (did swap memory with MacMini so reset card after panic) still testing. Maybe a delay in scan, I pressed it twice THEN it found my wifi )
This machine Acer is AMD-C70 with builtin video. Never can get it to playback nicely unless runnning win8. But the MacMini with NVedia running great. (CPU at 60%) without NV blob just fresh FD7b2, nice, also can max out at 32G RAM and compatible with RAM from ACER laptop.
Found a bluray drive for MacMini.... Wink you know where I am heading, found out how to boot DIRECTLY into GRUB ... Ha Ha, OSX may never see life again. Laughing

EDIT: early morning after time change.. sorry for typos Embarassed

double EDIT: yes HFS+ is iffy and comes up read only, ( ok by me ) I was going to have OSX copy sfs to a folder for me. And use the tiny 200M EFI part to hold grub.cfg and multisessions. freeing up flash and DVD from the boot process.

Kirk, wbar was compiled in fd700b2.

I have seen this problem in other versions of puppy, can't remember which ones but using the propriety driver usually fixed the problem. It was nice not to see this problem in 630, 700a1 and 700b1. It's a shame it's returned in 700b2.

Regards

found some video files apple quicktime could play. Testing against fatdog647b2 lol you are better than Apple playback on their hardware/software. They have wierd white bloches on light to dark changes where FD plays it perfectly. Very Happy Very Happy



EDIT ops sound via HDMI doesn't work on this version. OK for now. The headphone jack works fine.

Subject description: Added Packages
 

I have added to packages for network monitoring to the contrib section for fatdog64 version 700. Both have similar features.

The first one is "Fing". The web page is here: http://www.overlooksoft.com/fing This is a terminal application for Linux. It has ability to do scheduled monitoring and logging.

The second one is "ipscan" Its web page is here: http://angryip.org
This is a java application and requires the java run time environment, which is in the devx sfs. It does have a nice GUI.

I hope this helps.

I've just noticed links in Notecase no longer work in fd700b2.

It doesn't seem to recognise defaultbrowser. I think that's what Notecase is calling.

Subject description: Trying to get Money Manager EX to run
 

I am a long time user (since 1996) of Quicken for my checking account. I normally use it with Wine. I would like to change to a Linux application.

I have tried several, but, did not like them. I did find Money Manager EX version 1.1.0, but, I have not been able to get it to run under fatdog64. I get a missing library error. The missing library is libwx_gtk2u_unofficial_aui-3.0.so.0 Additionally, is there a way to check on the dependencies of an application before running it? Thanks for any help on this,

If I like it and get it to run, then I will make a package for other people's use.

Try installing wxwidgets from the repo, To find the libraries that a binary is linked to, open a terminal and type ldd followed by the name of the binary.

Try "Fatdog64 set default sound card" from the control panel. For just VLC click Audio and then select the device

Thanks, Kirk for the information.

Follow up: The latest version of Money Manager Ex that is compatible with the libraries is 0.9.9.9 version. The later versions of mmex require a newer vesion (3.0) of the widgets library and a lot of symlinks for names. It is on with the 0.9.9.0 version.
