Love Porteus - is there a mahjong package I can install?

Post#1 by gotPortee » 12 Feb 2018, 21:51

Hi all,
I love Porteus for its size and speed.
Is there a perhaps a mahjong package I might be able to install?

If so it will be my first time attempting to add a package into Porteus.

Thanks! :-]

If you use USM there are 3 you can pick from. What Desktop are you using?
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

I only see 2 apps, and one lib*, which may be a dependency of one of the other two.

The xmahjong file works. :good:

The kmahjong one failed:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ kmahjongg
kmahjongg: error while loading shared libraries: libkdegamesprivate.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Hi Ed_P...

kmahjong might be missing this dependency...
http://slakfinder.org/index.php?act=sea ... so#results

If you run "depfinder" (which requires python and tcl/tk) against this package it may reveal more hidden dependencies.
Source and package is @... http://depfinder.sourceforge.net/
:hmmm: I do NOT have the "right" to tell anyone what they should do...
but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should "consider".

Thank you n0ctilucient. :) But I recommend the OP use the USM xmahjong package. Less of a learning curve for a "new" user. :happy62:

You are correct. And I suspect it does not have glibc (Gtk/Qt) dependency which is a additional bonus. It sounds like a winner.

Thanks Jack, the Desktop is Mate.
I've never done anything with it in regard to adding any programs so perhaps there is a document or instructions on what terminal commands to enter and what servers may have the application etc? Thanks :-]

in the 'system' menu, there is a USM gui..
or from the root terminal: (su first)
update the databases:

Code: Select all

usm -u all
search for a package:

Code: Select all

usm -s xmahjong
search by keyword:

Code: Select all

usm -k mahjong
get the package and make a module:

Code: Select all

usm -g xmahjong
the finished module(.xzm) should be in /tmp/usm, move it to /mnt/<boot media>/porteus/modules to have it loaded at boottime.
for more help:

Code: Select all

usm -h

@gotPortee
Xmahjongg 3.7 for 64 Bit porteus 3.2.2

I added a menu entry + icon

Activate the module, (or put it into the modules folder and reboot)
and you will find mahjong at applications > games > Xmahjongg

Download:
http://filehorst.de/d/cAwfnHnh

The File is on a german hosting service so please do as follows to get it.
Wait 15 sec > click "Jetzt zur Download-Seite" (means go to download page) >
click "Klicke hier, um ihn zu starten" (means click to start the download).

Have fun..

Hi I finally had some time to devote to this.
I was able to download and activate Shisen-Sho - which is file kshisen-16.08.3-i486-1alien.txz
And this is in the Applications GAME menu, but the application doesn't load.

I tried searching for xmahjong [usm -s xmahjongg] but the system returns an error /var/usm/sbo/SLACKBUILDS.TXT for reading (no such file or directory)

So I'm wondering if my database is not fully updated, even though it appears to update fully.
BTW: I had to fiddle around with the URLs for mirrors in order to get the database updates to all work.

Thank you very much Donald for the 64 bit version of xmahjongg - unfortunately, my laptop is 32bit.
I wonder if this may also be available in 32?

Thanks :-]
