Good news from the Google folks! Now they have a simple presentation app in their Google Docs and Spread. Thinkfree.org has always had that, but it requires java for some functionality. I will be testing the Google Presentation app and see what happens. I would really like to keep away from java and leave it as a d/l it only if you need it.

Instead of:

is there anything to add to the end such as:

# mozstart -runina#$%*&#$%window
...

I'm having the same problem...must be a server issue. As far as I know that is the only place that it is currently hosted. MU may be able to shed some light on why the d/l is not working properly. He very graciously hosts a lot of our puplets.

PostPosted: Sat 29 Sep 2007, 05:44    Post subject: myPup is a great idea  

I think myPup is a great idea. In a world where more and more people have 'always on' internet access, using Web 2.0 applications will become more popular with time. When people realise that they can continue to use old PC hardware and still get modern function, operating systems such as Puppy will take off and the myPup derivative looks to be a clever idea which fits the original Puppy concept.

So even though my hardware isn't that old I installed myPup for fun. However I've not been able to test it because I cannot get it to recognise my ethernet card. In fact I have tried two cards and neither is recognised. I know which drivers to use but Puppy will not load them. In another partition I run Puppy 2.16 and that loads the drivers reliably. I wonder whether you have accidentally removed a module which is needed to make device detection work. Or, if anyone can suggest what I have done wrong, please say!

I would certainly encourage you to continue developing myPup as and when you get the opportunity.

I will check out the wired connection and see if it works OK. I may very well have messed something up. Thanks for checking out myPup! Please add any comments or suggestions for improvement as you play with myPup.

Thanks again,

Rhino

Thanks for myPup. I think its an idea whose time has come, or at least is coming shortly.
One way might be to start building it from a stripped-down Pup like Hairy Will's FatFreePup or Raffy's SafePup. The facility to choose our own 'webtop' providers would be the most flexible option, I think. Link lists like the ones Lobster has developed or that klu9 pointed to and/or this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Rich_Internet_applications for example, could be included as bookmark links for users to explore. There's a bewildering variety available these days - perhaps its best to let each choose their own. Generally if the hoster is geographically closer to the end user the appy will be faster.
Remember that Firefox is near-infinitely extensible with extensions & plug ins. For example there are mplayer and gxine plug ins for streaming multimedia. While adding extensions (e.g. ForcastFox, etc.) is trivial, I'm one who's always found it difficult to install plug ins correctly. (I'm such a n00b!)
A Firefox with pre-installed plug-ins for Flash9, mplayer & gxine, and some sort of n00b-proof installer for bigger plug ins like Jave JRE and Adobe PDF Reader would be really useful while keeping initial size down. And there are even faster, stripped-down browsers like Swiftweasel: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiftweasel that are 100% Firefox compatible and can use FF extensions & plugins.
Regarding adding stuff to the menu, etc. most newer DotPups automagically add the <name>.desktop file needed by XDG when installing, so there must be someway to incorporate this to do it for new online apps users might want to add. I'd leave off automatically creating desktop icons or you might soon have wall-to-wall clutter that defeats the purpose of quick'n'easy access to a given application. Wink
Regarding the matter of opening a browser without menus: do you mean opening it full screen? This would have the effect of making the webtop app appear to be running in its own window, as it were. It must be easy to configure Firefox to open full screen by default, no?
Finally, it might be useful to add on line storage options (e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_hosting_service ) and even web desktop systems like DesktopOnDemand: https://desktopondemand.com/
HTH and keep up the good work! Very Happy

Thanks for the advice for the pdf reader, that seems like it will fit here nicely.
