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:

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)

Subject description: bwp1.5 and mcbwp1 use a browser and/or text editor as a word processor, but can't key in a tab space

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).

Subject description: 6.1.0 and 6.6 sfs and pet for 32 and 64 bit. most recent java and a rox rec for all the spins

jre-8u181-i586 and jre-10.0.2-x64 (sfs+pet)

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!


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).
