Subject description: mp3 player
 

I made a pet of a cli mp3 player named mpg123.

Open the terminal and enter mpg123 to see a list of all the options:

High Performance MPEG 1.0/2.0/2.5 Audio Player for Layers 1, 2 and 3
version 1.16.0; written and copyright by Michael Hipp and others
free software (LGPL) without any warranty but with best wishes

usage: mpg123 [option(s)] [file(s) | URL(s) | -]
supported options [defaults in brackets]:
-v increase verbosity level -q quiet (don't print title)
-t testmode (no output) -s write to stdout
-w <filename> write Output as WAV file
-k n skip first n frames [0] -n n decode only n frames [all]
-c check range violations -y DISABLE resync on errors
-b n output buffer: n Kbytes [0] -f n change scalefactor [32768]
-r n set/force samplerate [auto]
-os,-ol,-oh output to built-in speaker,line-out connector,headphones
-a d set audio device
-2 downsample 1:2 (22 kHz) -4 downsample 1:4 (11 kHz)
-d n play every n'th frame only -h n play every frame n times
-0 decode channel 0 (left) only -1 decode channel 1 (right) only
-m mix both channels (mono) -p p use HTTP proxy p [$HTTP_PROXY]
-@ f read filenames/URLs from f -T get realtime priority
-z shuffle play (with wildcards) -Z random play
-u a HTTP authentication string -E f Equalizer, data from file
-C enable control keys --no-gapless not skip junk/padding in mp3s
-? this help --version print name + version
See the manpage mpg123(1) or call mpg123 with --longhelp for more parameters and information.

mpg123 -Z /root/music/*.mp3 will play all the mp3 files in the music
directory in a random order.

Both pets need to be installed.

Now for April64 (126MB):
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/packages/pet_packages-april/libreoffice-4.4.1.2-april-amd64.pet

...I don't know why it is so big, compared with i686 PET!

I think pschedule works fine in April64. The jobs are listed properly.

pschedule knows where they stored. The following commands work
properly as well.

Code:

crontab -e

crontab -l



So I've concluded there is a bug in the crond utility.
'top' command shows that it is running.

_____________________________________________


I fixed Pschedule, at least it seems fixed with limited testing. Settings now persist between reboots:

Really is 100M size word processor compact? what is it normally..
I read a while back about.RaspberryPi2B you @BK was going.to get. Any movement with Raspberry? I got one and really have not found a distro even large sized ones that provide what puppylinux ( quirky April May Wink ) can do in a few hundred megs so somewhat let down. Seriously spoiled by Puppylinux and FatdogARM did not expect how poorly setup those others are for Raspberry.

RaspberryPi2B
is backward compatible with RPi (one). The Puppy originally packaged with the compendium of OSes should still work. Maybe BK can tweek that one a bit prior to a larger commitment of time for a complete update?

Thanks Sage do plan on playing with older version if there is no movement with newer cleaner T2 based code and Quirky/April like improvements in the near future. If I can find a copy, Ally should have it archived.

Uh, maybe not - it was on an originally issued compendium for RPi of which the Puppy element was a secondary offering. BK must have it in his archives, though?

Which recent LibreOffice? This one: http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/x86/packages/pet_packages-april/libreoffice-4.4.1.2-april-i686.pet ?

If so, I find that it works perfectly on USB sticks. It is not the complete LibreOffice either, but only the Writer/word processor. And it did not work on either hard drive partition running Quirky 6.1.4. On both hard drives partitions, I was able to download and install with no problems, but when opening the program, it flashes the opening graphics and then it vanishes!

So, if you need to use the writer, it will install to USB stick, work like a million bucks--and away you go! Very Happy

Libre Office is latest one only. It is not working Quirky Unicorn as well as Quirky April 7. As reported by you, It is just come up in the desktop and vanishes. My installation is full hard disk.

I am getting following output while trying to run through command line:-
# swriter# swriter
/opt/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libGLU.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

It was compiled in April 7.0.2, and that is what it needs.

My PET is almost the full suite. Without Java and database-backend.
But all the other components are there: writer, draw, impress, calc.
-- they are scattered around the menu.

for cron, why not use "standard place" /var/spool/cron/crontabs/ ? let's keep things standard.
