@rcrsn51

Installed the hplip_scan_fd600-3.14.4.pet and the foo2xxx_fd600-2014.04.26.pet from the FatDog Repo and that did the trick for the scanner (not really sure the foo2xxx was needed but since all is well I left it in)... works fine now, the print-function worked fine with the hplip package downloaded from the PPM so left that alone... 'BUT' let me ask you... how would any individual ever know this without the expertise you possess? 'AND' how can peebee address this issue in his build?

@peebee:

Deleted the .wt file, did the trick, back to testing.

Oh... before I forget, I installed conky and for the fun of it tried installing conky-switcher 03 I picked up somewhere. On startup the conky I installed briefly shows on the desktop--- it is in fact there but it's gone like a flash then any suggestions?

'Thanks all'

Foo2xxx has nothing to do with HP scanners. Its purpose is described in the "How to Install your Printer" document.

In many Puppies, the first screen of the CUPS Wizard provides a link to "How to Install your Printer".

When was the last time you saw the announcement of a new Puppy where there was ANY mention of a source for compatible print/scan drivers?

Not sure, but I've experienced some conkys that did that because the conkyrc/config file was calling for a hardware process that didn't exist on the computer I was trying it on - usually i.e.; conky attempting to display 8-core CPU use on my 2-core laptop, or CPU temp on an older proc that didn't support temperature sensing, etc.

Usually, removing those particular incompatible code lines from from the conkyrc would allow the "rest" of the conky to function normally, and remain displayed.

FWIW!

'Thanks Moat'

A simple change of one-line did the trick

own_window_type override

to

own_window_type normal

So conky-switcher works great in LXPup!

To get mtpaint to print

Go to: http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/pets/500/

and download the file-

gtklp-1.2.8-amd64.pet

After installing, go to: mtpaint select file, select actions, select configure, select Print image on the dropdown list then change the command dialog-box from kprint %f to gtklp %f

Prints very nice! (remember to load something to print Very Happy )

Thanks @PeeBee for this.

The DVD was tested on both a Touch DELL UEFI AIO PC and a desktop Dell non-UEFI PC with NO boot-time issues. Cleanboots, fast, with very Smooth operations. Sharing folders for LAN users is a snap (TVs accessing shared folder's videos operate without studder or issues).

Edited: Thought I show its impact after a day's use on my 1GB RAM PC
Code:
sh-4.2# samba -V
Version 4.1.9
sh-4.2# free

Edited: Updated the PPM2 and Installed Chrome browser. Flash instructions will be needed for existing browser.

Stable and Great!

PostPosted: Sat 21 Mar 2015, 11:01    Post subject: Multilib Files  

peebee:

There are multilib files at-

http://gnu-linux-slackware.blogspot.com/2013/01/switch-to-multilib-with-32-bit.html

It is said that they will allow a 64-bit slackware program to run 32-bit applications. I tried to install them but a file it needs seems to be unavailable from LxPup64!

Any chance it can be checked out and maybe we can get a .pet made up of these multilibs so programs like Google Earth (and other 32-bit applications) can be run in LxPup64? (Unless of course there is a better way?)

Hi sszindian

That looks pretty complicated - maybe somebody who knows what they're doing will step in to help.....??

Particularly Step 5:
5. upgrade your 64bit Slackware gcc and glibc packages to their multilib versions, !!!!!

A better way to my way of thinking would be to have a 32-bit frugal install specifically to run those apps when you need them.....

Does FatDog64 have this multi-lib capability?

Which library was missing in your tests?

Cheers
peebee

I have lots of puppy's that will do that, just figured you wanted a LxPup64 that would be able to do it all?

Don't know, Fatdog is one I never tested, no reason, just never got around to it. But I have run many many other 64 bit distros and they all did Google Earth!!!

Should have written it down but... didn't... Anyway it will show in the terminal if you do the very first command in those instructions at that website.

With this version of Lxpup64 we are only testing so far so I don't see where installing those multilibs would hurt to see what comes out of it, we can always start from fresh if something goes haywire, done it hundreds of times before. (of course this depends if we can ever get them installed)

Ah - you definitely can't follow the commands given verbatim as they are based on the Slackware Package Manager which is very different to the Puppy Package Manager and tools and is not included in Slacko64 / LxPup64.

I believe that FatDog64-700 has moved over to using the Slackware PM system so the commands might work there.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=791980#791980

You would need to work out what are the Puppy equivalents of lftp and upgradepkg. lftp looks to be a multi-file file download facility. upgradepkg installs a bunch of .txz files from a directory - .txz being the Slackware equivalent of .pets. Puppy can install .txz files one at a time but doesn't have the upgradepkg facility.

I've never personally discovered the need to run Google Earth.....on 32 bit or 64 bit

Cheers
peebee

PostPosted: Wed 25 Mar 2015, 21:17    Post subject: Option to save session to DVD is missing.  

LxP64 does not acquire the SWAP partition at boot time.

Using the DVD, Booting on a UEFI PC and selecting option3 in bootmanager, the system does NOT offer the ability to create a save-session on the booting DVD.

Anyone else notice this.

This LxPup64 is a very nice and slick running Puppy.

I have it frugal installed on a USB drive to run on my ASUS Transformer book. The basic features work OK as far as what can be expected from this hardware. But one thing is a little strange:

The save file sometimes only seems to load partial information, if that makes sense or rings a bell? It's not consistent, random, maybe 1 in 3 boots. And it says it's loading the savefile but yet things are missing. Never seen this before with another puppy. I can tell right away when its one of the "bad" sessions when the bash history is gone when I open a terminal, and the wireless interface is up but no dhcp ip is obtained, but yet the browser history is still there.

I also have Fatdog64 frugal installed on this same USB drive, and it seems to loading the save file every time with all the previous settings.
