Subject description: Lucid 5.2 portable Apps
 



Wouldn't it be great if we could just go to a site
download a software package
move it to a required position
(I run from CD so move to my hard disk)
change permissions with a right click so it runs
and it does Cool

Yes I know we have Quickpet
But what about even more packages? Rolling Eyes

try these:
http://portablelinuxapps.org/
Thanks to Mike for pointing it out Smile

The portable Apps have been tested on Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) 32-bit
So try on Puppy Lucid which uses aprox 60% Ubuntu binaries
Other Puppys do not

click on the blue info button for info
[yes I know it is obvious . . .]
Give them feedback. Let us know how you get on
any missing libraries?
if you found added the libraries from Puppy package Manager or elsewhere?

I now have a Blue Griffon
HTML WSIWYG editor
and I iz going for more . . . Wink

Puppy Lucid
Compatible with Penguins

Right now, all I get is a (mostly) empty "Index of /" directory page. Smile

These have been tried as working. Did they work for you in Lucid?
Some are in PPM or Quickpet and they should be used in preference
(compiled in Puppy, probably smaller)

Amaya browser and HTML editor
aMule
Boxee
Calibre (tested x2)
Chromium
Cinelerra
Deadbeef
Dropbox
FBreader
Firefox
Focuswrite - minimal distraction WP
Fotowall
Flashplayer
Gimp
Inkscape inkscape0.48rc a bit problematic - stable quickpet versions available
Keepas
LibreOffice (available with Quickpet)
Opera
Ophcrack
Peazip (tested x2)
pidgin
Pinta paint program http://pinta-project.com/
Qbitorrent
Rednotebook - a personal journal
Remobo
Scribus
Seamonkey
Skype
Spideroak (tested x2)
Sqlitestudio
Teamviewer
Terminal
Viewnor
VLC
Wireshark
Xara Extreme
Zenmap (this needs python - use PPM and under utilities you will find python)

Some are later versions than Quickpet packages.
I would expect them to be larger than Puppy compiled packages too?

Well, personally, I'm not using Lucid, so I wouldn't know. Razz

I've had the site bookmarked, but it's not working for me at the moment, so I couldn't grab anything to test, anyway, either. Sad

Other Puppys do not
- you can not expect portableapps to work on them Confused
On Lucid you can . . . Smile

Puppy Lucid 5.2
More OS for no $

I have tried it and can run: libreoffice, inkscape0.48rc (but a bit problematic), FlashPlayer, Calibre, PeaZip, sqlitestudio, blender.
Blender must use a high-xorg.

Got this with WikidPad after installing python
will try a reboot and see if that makes a difference . . .

Code:
# ./WikidPad\ 2.0rc10_1

I have been using portable linux apps for a while now on Lucid Puppy.

To save writing a list here is a screen on what i have in my portable apps directory.



XBMC doesn't work (i made a .pet for it anyway) but portable Boxee work great on Lucid 5.2 add navi-x to it and you never short of films and TV to watch.

Also used to have Gimp in there but it doesn't work right on 5.2
I think aBiblia some kind of Christian/Bible? application also works.

Hi All,

Although I may have brought them to Lobster's attention, Stu90 brought them to mine.

And while they seem mostly to be limited to Lucid Pups, GYache-Improved may work on sPup.

Unfortunately, the portablelinux apps to build other apps don't, and I lack the skills to figure out what's missing from Puppies.

A great find, and thanks for sharing....these are working fine on my 520

aMule
Cinelerra
pigin
Spideroak
Ophcrack

a question though.

I've had this problem before. If i make a symlink from the app, then try to execute the app by clicking the symlink, it doesn't work. Why is that? I'ld like to put them into my main menu, but can't until i solve this.

Any advise would be appreciated

thanks

Hi,

I don't know how to do what you want, but alternatively perhaps you could drag and drop the icons on your desktop then you could, if desired, change the descriptions and/the icons by right clicking.

You could then make shortcuts to any of those icons.

Otherwise, if you use the radky apps menu you may be able to adapt it to include your choices.

My regards

666philb,
Try removing/replacing any blank spaces i the executable name.
If you wan't to add a menu entry you will need to make a new desktop file in /usr/share/applications direct Exec= to the location of your portable app (doesn't need to be in your save file) then run in Terminal: fixmenus

Thanks for the replys,

It's wierd, i've left the computer on over night and now all my menu links are working. This must be to do with me not running fixmenu (allthough the computer was rebooted multiple times after making my .desktop files) , puppy must have done it itself.

It's still odd though that before i went to bed, i dragged amule onto my desktop, clicked it and nothing happened, did the same thing this morning and it worked?!

I guess the pixies and faires came and mended it whilst i slept......

thankyou pixies & faires

PostPosted: Fri 28 Jan 2011, 18:57    Post subject: mysteries of a cool thing  

LOL, just another example of having people talk over your head. Pets I get, sfs's I get, even debs I sorta get. But I'll admit I'm lost with this. Too many years of wondows and exe's I guess. I truly want to learn though!

Ok, what do I do once I get to http://portablelinuxapps.org/? I see a page of icons (using opera) and if I click on an icon a new page opens up with garbage text on it. I assume this is a binary file that is actually supposed to download but is being handled wrong. So instead I right click and save the file to my drive. But there's no default extension for the file.

Example I downloaded Calibre 0.7.23 but there's no extension to let me know what type of file this is. Maybe it's obvious but I'm new so no, not so much to me. Should I be saving these with some extension?

How do I install/get them to run.

Any help would be appreciated since I am again trying to switch to puppy permanently and it's pretty close this time so I'd like it to stick.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Found an offhand reference a couple of dozen threads later about setting permissions (right click saved file, select permissions and then click the yes button) then left click on the file.

I LIKE this much better than some of the other things I had to go through to get programs to work.

COOL
