PostPosted: Sun 10 Jun 2018, 21:17    Post subject: large and small word processor updates
Subject description: libre office and ewp-The Emergency Word Processor (bwp, mcbwpt, micro nwp, etc)
 

libre office updates:
LibreOffice-6.0.4_en-US_xz.sfs, LibreOffice-6.0.4_en-US_xz.pet, LibreOffice-6.0.4_64_en-US_xz.pet, LibreOffice-6.0.4_64_en-US_xz.sfs

and thanks to mow9902 for a fix for unresponsive hyperlinks:
dump the following into a terminal and press enter, or copy it into a geany document and press the cauliflower:
Code:

ln -s /usr/local/bin/xdg-open /usr/bin

(adapted from 2 annoying problems with Libreoffice - SOLVED by mow9902)

i can recall an earlier pup refusing to allow a symbolic link unless i used mkdir -p (/already/ existing/ directory's /path)--if you find the above doesn't work, use the mkdir -p line or do it manually as outlined in the above thread.

mini word processor also updated:

bwp1.5 (46k)
mcbwp1 (12k)

ewp--EmergencyWordProcessor.html (159k)
ewp--EmergencyWordProcessor.html.gz (25k)

box1.1.html (159k)
box1.1.html.xz (18k)

___

the various versions of the browser based word processor appear to also work on my android phone, which gives more options to play with when downloading, but so far saving to pdf works, saving as html doesn't seem to preserve your changes...that's actually as far as i've gotten (testers welcome--you can just download the html files from the bwp folder in the nwp+vtg folder in word processing and related (in pupli repo)).

(more vtg-centric version of the linked help/"help" post upcoming, but the short version is you add commented out commands to the scripts and use the vtg to change the keys on the fly)(not that that's really faster than having swap folders, but it's probably just as fast and allows for perhaps quicker on-the-fly customization than the geany and leafpad launchers could add--just rerun the echo/shebang/chmod chunks after swapping the # or making your change(s)).

___
(second annoying problem mentioned in mow9902's helpful thread is related to language packs and offline help. check it out if your installation is giving you some sort of grief that relates).

thanks for this, woodenshoe-wi.

working well in an old xenial32 spin (based on 704) and a few tahr64 spins (based on 605).

had backups of the pinboard(s) so having mine reset to the alien default wasn't a problem; being able to remove and move columns is great; the installation preserved all my other rox mods (custom icons and the ability to set right click shortcuts were added to the original iso and not lost when the new items were added to the tool bar and menus); the clipboard is great....


mirrored your efforts here: rox filer 4 by woodenshoe (32/64)

thanks again!

-pd

woodenshoe has continued to update it (i think it's up to version eight), but i like version four and have been testing it for a while while simultaneously not keeping up with that thread, so maybe there are better changes out there, but as it stands it's an improvement and i recommend it for both the 32 and 64 bit spins. before you install, enter n in the nwp/pwn launcher (shift plus spacebar) to call up the main/original nwp menu. go to the rox slot, go to pinboards, and select "make 6 puppy pins for the pp series." restart x after the pet installation, navigate to ~/Choices and copy one of the 2-6 Puppy Pins as PuppyPin. if you're actually using the pp series to swap between distinct pins, go to choices and rename the one you're using as the PuppyPin before the installation--the pet will overwrite the main pinboard and reset all of your keyboard in-rox-folder shortcuts (o for odt, f for file, s for script, d for directory, etc), but you can easily reset them--the function is preserved even if the keycuts themselves are not (hover the cursor, select a letter for the function or to change one that's already set by default).

enjoy!

libreoffice updates:

LibreOffice-6.1.4_64_en-US_xz.sfs
LibreOffice-6.1.4_64_en-US_xz.pet

LibreOffice-6.1.4_en-US_xz.sfs
LibreOffice-6.1.4_en-US_xz.pet

here's a firefox update (firefox64 32/64) thanks to fredx181.

from the notes and links document in the above folder:

Quote:

if you've installed the nwp, you may've noticed the (likely) dead firefox entry on the alt+1/left click menu. if you enter

geany /nwp/root3/9/root1menu

into a terminal and scroll down to the bottom of the document, you'll see something like the following (yours may be set to /opt):

<Program label="Firefox Web Browser" icon="/nwp/root3/icons/Appfffirefox.png">/mnt/sda1/firefox/firefox</Program>

fred's version uses a script called ff to launch the browser, and when you download and extract the archive you'll find it somewhere like

/mnt/home/firefox-64.0-64-bit.tar.gz_extracted/firefox64/ff

highlight the ff script wherever you've downloaded it, copy that path into the geany document you opened to replace the bold faced path above (which might say /opt/firefox[…] on your version), save and close the document, and enter fixmenus; jwm -reload in a terminal (or use the entry for it that's also on that left click menu).

_____________


tried doing an x75 spin but the ppm broke, the extend select geany plug in didn't work correctly, and the the cnt nwp shortcut (at the very least) appears broken, but here are links to folders for xdotool and xpad and their dependencies (contains the gtk3 dependency some installations may need for the recent firefoxes (among other things)), the main workshop folder, and the geany plugins i snagged from ubuntu after my ppm went down (i was able to use an older version of sc0ttman's pkg to install sakura....

Pkg - CLI package manager

(as i said, it was an early version but it looks promising. added repos (seems easier than doing so though the ppm), but failed to install either recoll or vlc, both of which can be dependency hell...)).


anyway, i'll likely move to bionic beaver (32 by peebee and 64bit by 666philb) next (though i have an x75 running that --has been taken over), but you're welcome to treat it like a mystery to solve (post the solution when you find it). here are the folders:
xpadandxdotool
x7.64.5
geany127plugins


using a working cnt shortcut, i made the update from nwp9 to nwp10, ewp1.pet
(it's also a standalone (update aspects will just fail if there's nothing to update)--83k).

here's its pinstall script:

Code:

#!/bin/sh
mv /usr/share/applications/icons-alt/desktops /nwp/wp/desktops
#fix for redundant menu entries (sometimes docs, sometimes utilities, sometimes both)
#rm -rf  /usr/share/applications/icons-alt/desktops
#swap to # from the rm line to the mv line if you'd like to just delete the offending folder rather than save it for future mods/launchers
echo $'
#!/bin/sh
ln -s /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser /root/Choices/URI/https
ln -s /usr/local/bin/xdg-open /usr/bin
' > /nwp/lolf
chmod 755 /nwp/lolf
#nwp shortcut for libreoffice unresponsive hyperlink fix --lolf is the shortcut; copy the ewp over to nwp/wp/ and make desktop files and icons for both launchers:

#this stand alone is also an update and fix for the nwp (9 to 10), which would include the following two pets:
petget /tmp/bwp1.5.pet
petget /tmp/mcbwp1.pet
fixmenus
jwm -reload


pet is last couple of updates and will fix the redundant launcher entries you may have on various root menus. it also installs the ewp and copies it over to nwp/wp--you get one version to launch from /root/my-applications/bin and one version to launch from /nwp/wp. if you haven't installed mcbwp1 or bwp1.5, you'll get pop ups asking if you'd like to.

lolf (libre office link fix) is a new shortcut--run it if you notice your hyperlinks not opening correctly in libreoffice (see link to mow9902's post above for more).



enjoy!

Quote:


6/19/19

all my 32 bit machines are dead but i've included the bionic era nanos and the tahr era tmux here for precise and similar vintage pups. tmux plus nano is like a suped up version of those first word processors by brother and magnavox from the mid eighties or so, but instead of one 5 by 8 inch screen, you can have unlimited pages of unlimited screens, each opened to a hundred or so documents that you can flip through with a press of of alt+> or< (which the documentation calls M plus those keys--M is meta, and the pets install nanoh and nanoc; the latter is just nano's main configuration file, the one with the H has help for nano being run, nano before it's run, and markdown, in case you want to try to make a word processor of the nanos. for a better experience, in all but that older 32 bit tmux package, tmux set -g mouse on will allow you resize the panes and hop around with the mouse. next version will have tmux help, too, but ctrl+b is the default to activate commands, and once there you'll be using ctrl+b: new -s (name) to make a new session (like a new desktop in puppy) and ctrl+b s to switch to it. more on that later, or maybe in the help file for nanoi.1, but i believe these packages will work in all the spins as long as you pick the right one. tahr couldn't use xenial's tmux, and ubuntu has taken the tahr repo down, so i got that package from http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/t/tmux/


the md nano packages have mouse support disabled, which means you can highlight select and middle click paste between tmux (or general terminal) windows.

nanotes in the terminal or cd (location); nanotes will give you a 1kb archive that has scripts for it to be opened in nano or concatenated (either as a running tab of your notes or overwriting the choices). here's one of the pinstall scripts:

#!/bin/sh
cp -f /bin/nano /bin/nano-old
cp -f /etc/nanorc /etc/nanorc-old
cp -f /tmp/nano/etc/nanorc /etc/nanorc
cp -f /tmp/nano/bin/nano /bin/nano
cp -f /tmp/nano/bin/rnano /bin/rnano
cp -fR /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/Templates/0n4n /nwp/wp/0n4n
cp -f /root/my-applications/bin/nanoc /nwp/nanoc
#^r for new file /default nano insertation behavior removed
#alt 6 for copy is nwp incompatible but alt caret (M^) works and is a built in alternative
#you may want to toggle mouse support
cp -f /tmp/nano/markdownhelp /usr/share/doc/nano/markdownhelp
cp -f /tmp/nano/nano_help /usr/share/doc/nano/nano_help
cp -f /root/my-applications/bin/nanoc /nwp/nanoc
cp -f /root/my-applications/bin/nanoh /nwp/nanoh
#nanotes is a call to a directory from the terminal so no nwp shortcut (cd /path; nanotes)
echo $'#!/bin/sh
rxvt -e nano /nwp/wp/0n4n/1/*
' > /nwp/nan1
chmod 755 /nwp/nan1
echo $'#!/bin/sh
rxvt -e nano /nwp/wp/0n4n/2/*
' > /nwp/nan2
chmod 755 /nwp/nan2
echo $'#!/bin/sh
rxvt -e nano /nwp/wp/0n4n/a/*
' > /nwp/nana
chmod 755 /nwp/nana
echo $'#!/bin/sh
rxvt -e nano /nwp/wp/0n4n/b/*
' > /nwp/nanb
chmod 755 /nwp/nanb


_________

i made the notes folders with the mcc utility, but you could do it with the vtg as well (put this text in a geany doc and hit the cauliflower):

mkdir -p /tmp/nwp/wp/0n4n/b/
mkdir -p /tmp/nwp/wp/0n4n/a/
touch /tmp/nwp/wp/0n4n/b/00{1..10}
touch /tmp/nwp/wp/0n4n/a/0{1..10}


mkdir -p /tmp/nwp/wp/0n4n/c/
mkdir -p /tmp/nwp/wp/0n4n/1/
mkdir -p /tmp/nwp/wp/0n4n/2/
touch /tmp/nwp/wp/0n4n/1/{a..z}
touch /tmp/nwp/wp/0n4n/2/a{a..z}
touch /tmp/nwp/wp/0n4n/c/{1..10}

(change the test directory to the path of your choice. clicking the tilde/back tick/grave in a rox folder and typing nanotes will give you two folders of 27 blanks and 2 folders of 11 blanks (more or less a,b and 1,2 from above). the nanb nana scripts work on their specific directories--it'll work on the copied set from the set but not from a menu. for this reason, making menu entries for this stuff might be better if calling the directory to be opened rather than a specific script or action chosen.

anyway, tmux plus nano (and i've downloaded emacs and vim but they're even more annoying to get started with than these weirdly shortcutted unix fossils) has made my android boxes shitloads more fun so i thought i'd share.

another tip--making tmux windows is a way to avoid the disaster of screwing up your present one, in addition to making the interface overall better (especially if you're going to be sticking to mostly cli). so, ^Cb (control b in most lingo from what i've been seeing lately) " (double quotes) and you'll split a window vertically. same prefix plus % and you'll split it horizontally. you can drag with the mouse--it's so much faster i'm going to leave it up to you to find the shortcut to do it with the keys (ctrl b ? gives you a bunch, on line you'll find more, not every tip and code from the newest tmuxes works on the 1.8 (android boxes have 4-something and i don't notice the 2-something from bionic lacking for lag. yet.)

so that's that. i'm running 6t4 and 64 bit xenial and bionic pups with the nwp installed. geany vtg stuff works great in bionic, but i've had to disable some of the jwm stuff. a second run of part of the pinstall script fixed some stuff that appeared not to work correctly with regard to rox tweaks (keyboard shortcuts mostly), but i'm on 798 which is more or less a pre-release…

mcedit and joe's own editor are other micro editors worth checking out--the former's part of mc, which is a terminal file manager without the weird ass vim shortcuts (unlike ranger)
(they seem worth learning (something to read on the kindle); i'll save so many minutes in the future dd ing ...and escape escape escaping…

(mouse made the tmux navigation, selection, and workspace creation experience better. same with the transferring text between nano documents experience, though opening up dozens of documents isn't a bad work around if you do have the mouse "enabled" (you can select and mark but in a limited, confined to nano-box way).
)
_______

tests were mostly done on the most limited terminal i could find (rxvt). your experience on better terminals (sakura, roxterm, lxterminal, ...urxvt..) should be even better.

--puppus dogfellow, four thirty in the morning.

in pups that have the nwp installed with the default jwm stuff in place, alt+6 for the sixth menu (or fifth extra since these documents frequently refer to the 10 total as 9 extra without telling...that there are three sets of them--) is also nano's version of copy. you don't need a work around for either since it's got the alternate of control caret, which the main help (second help you'll see after the default bottom row help--press ^G and you'll get the longer list with the alternates if any exist) shows after a little scroll down. nanoh in the terminal or in the nwp/pwn launcher get you the nano help printed out in an editable file (move around and group what's most relevant as you learn the interface).

those of you who like the default nano setup might be upset to find it opens new files now without wearing a disguise and creating a diversion--^r opens a dialog for a new file in a new space, not the contents of a file to be dumped into the current one. (same nanoh opens the config file and help file. change the defaults and learn the preloads that override them).

...it's unfortunate that the workaround for copy involves an extra key stroke, but it's kind of a visual and musical aid if you think of it in terms of marking with an A and copying with a ^ as pencil shaped letters/characters leading into some assonance, consonance.



--puppus dogfellow, 544 in the morning (took some time out from some terminal multiplexing to tend to pupli repo). will update the threads with this, and maybe make a thread for the nanos once i remove the nwp specific stuff. and if you haven't played around with tmux on puppy or android, give it a shot.

--one last tip (unless i'm so sleepy that it's merely a redundancy)--if you've got your 20 or 200 documents open and you're worried about zipping through the closings with a held down control-x, any unsaved changes will prompt you before continuing with the few-per second closings. keep track of yourself or make a tmux window watch the progress of a networked file. set nano to make backups. or not. (if you install both versions of the nano pet, you'll get a backed up main configuration file to play around with).



if i want to get rid of the window quickly, i usually just control b x it in tmux rather than hold down the control x for nano's interface (making sure there's another pane to go to). i also do this when i make changes to a configuration file that's for a program i'm actively using in a pane elsewhere--that version is in the past, and even if you close the window, the terminal is in the past. you'll need a newer pane to get the newer configuration for whatever it is you've just modded.

--p. dogfellow, 1008, tuesday, 6.19.2019

***




short version: use tmux plus nano to get endless grids of text editor interfaces. some help files and other tweaks to the nano bits, maybe that old 386 tmux pet will work in precise. tmux/termux combo is helping my pups get along with my android boxes.

enjoy

--p. dogfellow

(nano is up to 4.2 but the 293 is from the bionic repo and appears to be the newest version the pups can use. somewhere in the twos it gained the ability to undo and then it gained a more colorful help menu--not sure what improved from 293 to present, but this plus tmux is a pretty cool notetaker and text editor combo. oldest tmux pet in this post is a suggestion for precise. newest one came from bionic, the 2.1 came from xenial64, and i forgot to get the 1.8 from tahr, which couldn't take any of the newer versions but shares a lot of compatibility with precise from what i remember, so i tracked down a 386 version of it. use scottman's pkg to get the 1.8 or the deb from the link if your ppm is dead (my tahr has a dead ppm)).
