Subject description: A whole new breed of Puppy has arrived ....
 

Just to let you guys know that a whole breed of Puppy has just arrived. Puppy 2.15CE Standard Edition RC2 now comes with some really interesting configuration options as follows:

Standard Edition RC2 + web_215.sfs + OOo_215.sfs = Office Edition

Standard Edition RC2 + web_215.sfs + pgs_215.sfs = Graphics Edition

Standard Edition RC2 + web_215.sfs + devx_215.sfs + fltkc++_215.sfs = Developer Edition

Standard Edition RC2 + all of the above (to a limit of 3 added sfs files) = Jumbo Edition

MU has mirrored the above files here:

http://puppyisos.org/isos/2007-01-to-06/Puppy-2.15CE-RC2/

PkaG will shortly post his mirror as well. RC2 is a bug fix update for RC1, so I strongly recommend moving to the newer version, especially if you were experiencing problems with running Xvesa.

Enjoy! Razz

Sorry to be such a newbee Laughing , but could you point me to how one uses the above, as I was going to burn em all onto a cd.

I missed the threads describing how to add the extras.

I was thinking of the Puppy-2.15CE-RC2 + Office+Web+Pgs for a nice all purpose Puppy.

Is this doable?
You did say 3 addons..

No probs, Puppy forum is the newbie-friendliest forum in the business Just ask! Smile
Copy your sfs file to the same folder that your pup_save file is in - usually /mnt/home (or in other words the top-level folder of your hard disk).

Then reboot Puppy. All the files from the sfs file are then available in the normal way.

Hope this helps

Tronkel

Before I needlessly consume 106MB of someone's bandwidth, I would like to know the exact identity of the Open Office which is being offered as OOo_215.sfs.

Is this identical to the Open Office in Puppy-215CE-Office-Alpha.iso?

...or is this the eagerly-awaited "slimmed-down Open Office 2.10" which a certain esteemed Puppyist from the great state of Texas "has been volunteered to do"?

...or is it something else?

The version currently online is 2.0.4 - the same as in Alpha. Nathan is currently out of town on business and won't be able to upload 2.1.0 until early next week.

A word of warning though. The version Nathan is compiling is still a FULL version. The saving in size was minimal for what was lost in the reduction, so we've kept the full copy. Of course Nathan will work his usual magic and make that as small as humanly possible.

Cheers

Not to toot my own horn, well maybe a bit, but I'm actually more excited about pgs_215.sfs, which contains more graphics software than even Grafpup does. It has a very extended version of Gimp, the newest Inkscape, newsest stable dia, two 3d modeling programs, two ray tracers, import from digital cameras (both gui and cli) and the latest ufraw for converting professionsal raw photos. PreviouslyKnownAsGuest also contributed to it, which was a big help and eased the workload a lot.

WhoDo hit the nail on the head about OpenOffice. Once I cut it down and compressed it I only managed to get it down to about 76MB, with only the Writer module left in and a few other features left out like the gallery. But also I have to clarify, I'm not compiling the source myself, I'm just repackaging the official binaries from openoffice.org and doing some simple configuration to make the experience better (like forcing it to use the gtk interface sothat fonts are legible).

BTW I'm back in town so I'll be getting back to work on things shortly.

Nathan

I must say that I'm extremely pleased with the support received from Nathan F, PkaG, Tronkel, Pizzasgood, Lobster and puppyfan12 throughout the entire project. Completion just would not have been possible without their invaluable help. Thanks guys. Cool

OK, I downloaded the iso's and extracted the sfs files, put them in the root of my hd, where my save file resides. Nothing happened.
I'm feeling helpless and hopeless. Could someone give me Dummy instructions?
Thanks.

Thanks.

Go to /usr/local/bin and drag swriter, scalc and simpress links to the desktop. All the other apps are linked from that directory too. The menu system isn't updating properly at the moment. I'll sort that out with Nathan and Pizzasgood before Final is released.

In the meantime, the office apps are there, the graphics apps are there and the web apps are there; you just need to know where to look. Typing the app name in a console works, too.

Hope that helps.
