Bugfixing & Screenshooting

16 Oct

G’day,

‘path to’ errors + scripting typos + missing libraries have been addressed…

Added a very interesting game called freecol – a colonisation campaign game for java – set run action for jar files to ‘java -jar’ – so jar files will automatically be executed when clicked.  Also, realised I didn’t have an RSS agregator so installed the latest version of RSSowl.  Because the latest version work, it got me thinking….. Updates from now on (apart from bugfixes) will mostly focus on updating apps to the latest to see if they work ok or if they’re within acceptable resource usage.

New mods for rox have increased RAM usage marginally.

Completed the most up-to date screenshots of individual menu entries for the Help! section.  Marathon and very boring/repetitive.

Am starting to relook at the XDG menu system to try to reflect the look and feel of current menu; in order to meet the freedesktop.org standard for desktop/menu entries.  These modifications of the code will be posted to Sourceforge.  Please note that no iso will be uploaded to Sourceforge and that these larger downloads will be handled by my personal mediafire account – that’s not the intent of Sourceforge.  All stuff is released under the GPL license (not sure which version yet but it may be 2.0 as 3.0 is a bit difficult to get my head around) – unless the app has been released under a different license which it will be noted thus…

Am now remastering in order for further testing on other hardware platforms and online (my development platform’s Ethernet plug is busted and no wifi).  When this is done will upload to share.

Cheers

Martin

    regarding updating just tried to update virtualbox without success – we’re dealing with kernel modules which may not be compatible with such an old kernel. I’m sure tuxguitar will be fine – so an upgrade to version 1.2. Also, I’m not sure if I mentioned that Thunderbird and Firefox were updated to versions 16 & 15 respectively…

    Found a compiled version of vbox 4.2.0 how convenient (big thx to TheAsterisk! Puppy developer for compiling that package) – may install it if these a significant advantage over what’s currently installed..
