Could not get Bluefish working :( but Geany works fine and is also rustc code aware :D


What is wrong with Bluefish? It was updated recently. Did you try the latest in the repo?

Is there a USB webcam app that would allow me to take images to do vision stuff on?
V4L is very old piCore 3?
Got plenty of Sony PS3 eyecams for $2 each.

I'm not familiar with webcams :(

Must have done something wrong with the Bluefish install, still getting the hang of TC X11 apps.
Deleted the tcz with MC and reinstalled it today, it is working now :D
Did it a few days ago, old version?
Now got two editors :P

Don't know much about webcams either :(
In Linux/Raspbian I use Cheese, QtV4L2 test, FSwebcam etc
Need something lower level to just take a bmp, might try a pascal, python or Lua library.

V4L2 is what most use for that, but it looks complex.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video4Linux.
Hmm gstreamer, ffmpeg, might try installing them first.
Ok,  they are big too.

Finally with Internet access at home I can get xxx.tcz's with dependencies  and start doing development in piCore.
Need compiletc.tcz first?

Last week I was playing with a $20,000 Ximea USB multispectral camera 8)
It just worked in Windows/Linux/Raspbian, but they are too bloated for single purpose gadgets.
Just lucky i only had to get the hardware working, software is someone else's problem at the moment ;D

For experimental purpose only.
Porting firefox from debian.  :)

Download firefox-esr armhf from https://packages.debian.org/jessie/firefox-esr
Download language pack if you need it.
Extract it with
Code: [Select]
busybox ar vx filename.deb
tar xf data.tar.xz

Create custome tczs (firefox_download.tcz, language_pack.tcz)

Use this script if you need to merge firefox and it's language pack together
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,20709.msg129934.html#msg129934
1. prepare firefox_download.tcz, language_pack.tcz, language_pack.tcz.dep
2. put your firefox_download.tcz language_pack.tcz language_pack.tcz.dep into your /ets/sysconfig/tcedir/optional
3. run deps-merge.sh -i language_pack.tcz -o firefox-esr.tcz

*** Make sure you have UTF-8 fonts in /usr/share/fonts NOT /usr/local/share/fonts ***

Create a dep file
Code: [Select]
dbus-glib.tcz
gtk2.tcz
hunspell.tcz
libXt.tcz
libasound.tcz
libevent.tcz
startup-notification.tcz

The newly created firefox-esr.tcz icon won't show up on your wbar
You'll need to modify the extension
copy usr/share/applications/firefox-esr.desktop  to usr/local/share/applications/firefox-esr.desktop
Append this line to the latter
Code: [Select]
X-FullPathIcon=/usr/share/pixmaps/firefox-esr.png

Tested on Raspberry Pi 3 model B with piCore-8.1.5.
Watching youtube can be lagging but acceptable.
Audio works with alsa.
Viewing PDF is a bit slow.
Overall, it's not a bad idea for general browsing.  ;D

Thx polikuo!
I will get into this as soon as sparetime permits.
Being able to setup TCL-Raspis (maybe even on PiCorePlayer-images) with a usable browser in kiosk mode that could be powered-down the "hard way" would come in really handy for my purposes.

Was the rebuild more stable?

It's only crashed a couple of times in a week of use and only on the tinycore site  :(

Note that I haven't re-built for armv7, as opposed to armv8, as yet.
