31  General / Wish list / Re: Picasa 2.7 for Linux Wish request on: September 25, 2008, 02:38:19 AM
Posted below are the exact commands I used to download, install and run picasa.

wget http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/pool/non-free/p/picasa/picasa_2.7.3736-15_i386.deb
ar x picasa_2.7.3736-15_i386.deb data.tar.gz
mkdir -p ~/bin/google/picasa
mv data.tar.gz ~/bin/google/picasa
cd ~/bin/google/picasa
tar zxf data.tar.gz
rm -f data.tar.gz
cd ~/bin
ln -s google/picasa/opt/picasa/bin/picasa
~/bin/picasa

So going through the lines:
* I used wget to download the latest 32bit deb of picasa.
* I then used ar to extract the install files from the deb.
* I created a directory and all it's parent dirs to place picasa (~/bin/google/picasa).
* I moved the archive to the above dir.
* I changed to that directory.
* I extracted the archive.
* I deleted the archive.
* I changed dir to ~/bin.
* I created a symbolic link so that I could run ~/bin/picasa to execute the program.
* I ran picasa.

Hope that clears things up for you.

Provided it's out-of-the-box wireless support you are testing, it will be exactly the same as if you'd installed Pardus. If you needed to install further software to configure your wireless you may not be able to... I can't really speak to that though, I haven't used a Pardus LiveCD in a couple years. I'm not sure if they use unionfs/aufs or such to allow pseudo write access to the system.

I'm happy to download picasa and have a play at getting it installed, won't be for a few hours until my off-peak kicks in (evil isp speed limiting me just for my constant leeching).

Did you try http://picasa.google.com/linux/faq.html#44 btw?

EDIT: http://en.pardus-wiki.org/HOWTO:Picasa - seems to indicate that the advice in the google faq works on pardus.

You're obviously a more social creature than me. :) I've been using Pardus on and off for the last couple years, mostly swapping between LFS/Pardus/Mint/PCLinuxOS. A couple months ago I ran out of time/interest for the LFS builds and ended up swapping to Pardus as my sole distro, so decided to stop lurking and just registered on the forum recently.

Yep, tried that at the time.. db rebuilt successfully but the problem updating still occurred. I ended up just being lazy and swapping to the fresh install I'd done rather than continue to work on the problem. I've left that partition as-is though so when I've got more free time I might go back and have another go at diagnosing it.

Glad it worked in the end... if you rule out the media it may be an interesting problem though, have you ever had similar issues on that hardware with other linux distros?

Cool, let us know how it works out. :)

Not a problem. Hope you enjoy using Pardus.

Welcome to the forum Lisa, never seen someone so active on a distro forum before the first install before. :)

Thanks Lisa, though I basically just swapped to the fresh install rather than figuring it out. Slack. :)

Hi, welcome to Pardus.

I've whacked together a quick pisi file of openvpn 2.1_rc10, keep in mind though it's an unofficial build. I don't know anything about the program itself so I haven't tested it but it does build and install cleanly. It's basically an alternative for if you can't get it built successfully or can't wait until the official repo is updated (likely to be after the next stable release of openvpn).

If you'd prefer or have any problems, I'm happy to post the steps taken in creating it.

To install (as root):

pisi it openvpn-2.1_rc10-5.pisi

http://www.box.net/shared/iyn1p9dfij

Note for noscript users: First time I've used box.net for file hosting, seems like you need to allow box.net and boxcdn.net. It seems slightly more reputable than sites like rapidshare but that's all I know about it.

If you do run into further problems with the media... there's basically three main reasons your media would be stuffed.

* the download: wget is pretty much the most reliable method of downloading error-free known to man, torrents are another good way to go.. since most of them allow you to check the completed download for missing chunks.

* the burn: the conventional wisdom is to burn at a low speed, some burning programs calculate the md5 sum and check against the completed cd.

* the media: not all dvd/cds/etc are created equal.

EDIT: forgot the md5/sha bit

After you've leeched the iso, you can download the md5sum or sha1sum files from the server.

eg. http://ftp://ftp.pardus.org.tr/pub/pardus/kurulan/2008.1/Pardus_2008.1_Hyaena_hyaena.iso.sha1sum

You then compare it to the downloaded iso like so:

lashni@orphan pardus $ md5sum -c Pardus_2008.1_Hyaena_hyaena.iso.md5sum
Pardus_2008.1_Hyaena_hyaena.iso: OK

lashni@orphan pardus $ sha1sum -c Pardus_2008.1_Hyaena_hyaena.iso.sha1sum
Pardus_2008.1_Hyaena_hyaena.iso: OK

If the response is anything other than OK, the download is corrupt or incomplete.

There's no boot option that would influence the installation of a specific package like that... I'm guessing it's a problem with your installation media, did it successfully pass the media check at the start of the installer?

Just to check, is it 2008 or 2008.1 (the latest) ?
44  Assistance / Software / Re: Adding shell script to the servicemenu in konqueror? on: September 22, 2008, 15:04:37 PM
Had a play, this all works... basically you right-click on a video file, select actions/test script, it passes the full path and filename to the bash script... which then echos that variable to the file tmp.txt. Hope it's helpful.

mkdir ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus

~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/testScript.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
ServiceTypes=video/*
Actions=runTest

[Desktop Action runTest]
Name=test script
Exec=/home/lashni/test.sh %u

~/test.sh

#!/bin/bash
echo ${1} > tmp.txt

EDIT: Forgot to add, chmod +x the ~/test.sh file... obvious anyway.

I might be reading it wrong... but presuming SeFilm.sh is actually the script you're wanting to call and WatchAMovie isn't, it's kinda backwards.

From a quick glance at http://developer.kde.org/documentation/tutorials/dot/servicemenus.html it looks like it should be:

WatchAMovie.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Actions=WatchAMovie
Encoding=UTF-8
ServiceTypes=video/*

[Desktop Action WatchAMovie]
Name=Watch a movie
Exec=/bin/sh "home/martin/bin/SeFilm.sh"

... or something like that. If I'm completely wrong feel free to call me an idiot. :)

EDIT: You'd then have to look at passing it the variable for the filename I presume... and handling that arg in your shell script.
