This is another project that I am looking into. As you may not know, the Puppy Programme installer is fairly light-on when it comes to available programmes – so to install the cool linux programmes you have to look for them and manually do everything – including the dependencies. Lobster (Puppy forum) has shown me a small project to just that – but it still is very limited. However, with this template I may be able to greatly expand its purview.
Some included programmes:
- ATI/Nvidia Drivers
- TuxGuitar + Timidity
- Latest version of Java
- Plethora of games (Wesnoth, Lincity, etc…)
- Elements of KDE (such as KDEedu, kdegames, etc…)
- Utilites (such as conky, wbar, SFScombiner, pupbegone, muppywebcam, etc…)
- Internet plugins (such as Flash and multimedia)
- avast – anti-virus
This installer would also add the dependencies – it would have to be tested on a fresh install of a Fat-Free Puppy. I would be able to use my MediaFire Account to host the necessary files. Just thinking about the possibilities. I could have a minimal version of SimplyPuppy and the installer create that unique desktop entry required by SimplyPuppy – mmm could be very exciting. I will develop it for a spartan version of SimplyPuppy.
