I know very little about Linux apps., I've seen very few in action, the movie player Xmm (I think) didn't impress me.
The file dialog of the apps. dissappoints me, the more Win like the GUI the better for Linux noobies like me.

1) A better movie player? I use Zoom & I like the BSplayer.
2) Is there a WinAmp clone? Visualizations, equalizer, play list, etc.
3) Audio & video processing & editing, I saw an audio editor on Peter Seig's site, but I can't read German.
4) Dictionary & encyclopedia with search? Bible & other books?
5) Utilities; CD burner, CD ripper, a full featured file browser like XFE, disk partition-format & scan-repair.

Any other catagories of apps. that I haven't thought of?

1) mplayer, accellerated xine

2) xmms, mplayer

3) Audacity and sweep, rezound http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=5525
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?p=40747#40747
The picture on Peters page shows wavbreaker to split files.

4) http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Reading/
KlhR posted several pups concerning reading/dictionaries, but I think they had no luck yet with the bible.
Also Hacao posted a dictionary.
I use wxAgents.org, which is an desktop-interface to services like http://www.leo.org http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=3221&highlight=agents

5) parted , filemanager emelfm (but without tree), endeavour http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=2706&highlight=endeavour

With these keywords, you easily should find the dotpups with additional info texts in the board.

Greets,Mark

Try here:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=5448

Pick and try, if you don't like it, try another one. (that's what I do:))

Search the forum for the different topics you're asking about. You will find loads of info.

- Gxine - movie player
- xmms - to play all your tunes (winamp clone)
- Xcdroast, graveman, CDcombust, ripperX, multi-convert - will let you burn, rip, encode, decode all your tunes.
- audacity - will let you slice and dice all your tunes

and it seems someone is/has been working on a Bible project but can't think of it at the moment.

Way excellent! I'll look at them all... The screen shot helped alot as the GUI is critical, all apps. work, but usability is king.

How about video processing & editing? I can search, but I still won't know what's the best apps.

Are there any catagories of apps. that I've left out?
I sat here last night for awhile thinking about it, seems there's something I've forgotten... SUGGESTIONS?

Video-editing is one of the darker chapters in Linux, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I think Grafpup has cinelerra, a "Gimp" optimized for Videoediting.
There is Kino (not yet for Puppy, but Nathan from Grafpup works on it).

There are one or 2 other apps,but I forgot the names.
Mainactor is comercial, but there are also one or 2 larger free ones.


*remember* Broadcast2000 was famous a while (4-5 years?) ago, but had huge Hardware-dependencies. Maybe with nowadays Hardware it is better.

If you google for those names and Linux, you easily should find the homepages.
Often you find related links there.

I was minorly interested in Videoediting in 1995-99 when I played around with Rendering-applications (basically in Win, a short time in Linux, too).

Thanks Mark; I'll look at what you've said.

It's hard to imagine that Broadcast2000 would have hardware hassles, 2 HDs are all that's needed.
It must have captured video input too, making for the hardware dependance..

If you are already used to Win GUIs you are a noobie no more Wink.

You gave me some to write about in my Blog.

rarsa; looked at your blog page, pretty cool!!!

Actually I'm not a complete noob, I've used various Linuxes over a few years.
I've never had much luck getting anything working how I wanted & would eventually wander away for 6 months or so.
Boredom or renewed interest would bring me back to try again with a different distro... finally Puppy.
The main thrust of Puppy seems to be an ease of use desktop, paticularly for Win converts... noobies.
Hense my attempts to find apps. that work like Win, it's not that Win's better, but like WordPerfect for its users, it is familiar.
Like my current problem of getting a login password, too many things in Puppy are still too difficult, MORE GUIs!
Not that I don't think noobs shouldn't learn the Bash command line, but if stopped at every turn, one might not get there.
My in & out again history with Linux in general mirrors this & I'd say is rather indicative of most folks experiences.
And... It's not because we lack "sticktoativeness", My patience for Win is no different, success determines the result.
I don't tend to waste my time on unfruitful endeavors (result/effort) and diminishing returns.
