Here is a very nice bible site I hope many will find useful! Sometimes it's just nice to sit back and have someone read the bible to you... That's exactly what this site does. Especially nice for the visually impaired. You can also select your favorite version of the bible!

Wow... just where is cloud headed with technology???

Yes, cloud is far from being perfect but... it's getting better and better every day!

One new area... Have you ever struggled to set up that printer in a Puppy, any Puppy? Sometimes it takes hours, days, even much, much longer and sometimes, you just can't get it configured no matter how hard you try.

The 'Cloud' is going to take care of that hastle for you, and I expect you will see the day not to far off when any and all your connected hardware won't have a need for any software, drivers or whatever installed in them.

Check this link out, it's just another step taken by the 'Cloud' that will blow your mind!

Hi sszindian
I have just installed Cloud Puppy 1.0 and signed up to http://www.cloudme.com/en as you recommended. When the "cloud me" site starts up I am immediately switched to a java site which invites me to install about 20MB of download. I do not want to do this. Is there a way to get to the "cloud me" desktop etc without this download? If not, is there a similar sight that does not require this type of download? I do not want to sign up to any other site only to find I have to download and install stuff I don't want.

Regards,

Ken.

PostPosted: Fri 27 May 2011, 22:59    Post subject: Cloud Desktops  

Hi keniv!

My experience strictly... Over the years I have used many operating systems and many various programs and have always found that when I wanted a complete desktop I was at the mercy of someone who designed it thinking they knew what programs would be best for me... end result was I generally ended up using about 20% (many times less) of those so called perfect desktop programs. All the others just sit there looking pretty, taking up useless space.
With Cloud Puppy, it's much different, it comes with ONE installed program, 'A Browser.' This browser lets YOU find and create the exact type of Cloud environment you want on your system. I'll just give you one example...

'Business' To date, pretty much every other version of Puppy Linux really falls way, way short when it comes to running a small, medium or large business. With Cloud Puppy, you can turn this little bugger into a 'Full Blown Wiz Bang' business system using the Cloud Applications that are available.

So myself, I don't want a cloud desktop that someone else designed for my so-called best interest, 'I'd Rather Make My Own' to do what I want and need, finding ONE cloud program at a time.

Back on page ONE of this tread, you will find a post made by 'Lobster' In that post he has TWO URL's listed. If you click on the first one, you get a screen that looks like a regular standard Puppy desktop... If You CLICK on any of the icons on that puppy-desktop-look-alike graphic, you will be in for a surprise... Some of those icons will take you to OTHER Cloud applications (and some standard Puppy sites too) but go give it a try. One thing this shows you is that you can design Your Own Desktop (if that's what you like) and have it do whatever you want it to! His second link pretty much does the same thing only showing a browser... click on some of the browser icons and the programs listed within those icons. 'Surprise Surprise!'

Now to your question... NO, I don't know of any Cloud desktop (at least not yet) that lets you design it exactly the way you want, with the programs YOU want. But... why bother when you have the perfect little Cloud Puppy to 'Do It Your Own Way Already!'

Remember one thing keniv... All Cloud Stuff is very new and there aren't any so-called seasoned experts in this field yet. In the future, you will see many things happening, changing, invented re-invented and so forth, it sure is interesting to say the least and beats anything the computer industry has come up with to replace the 'Old Standard' computer stuff!

Hope this helps some and if anyone has any more on this subject, please jump in!

Hmmm... Want some handy 'TOOLS' for your Cloud Puppy? Check this site out, they have 66 pages of all kinds of cloud stuff you will find very interesting and lots of them are FREE! If you can't find anything useful here just throw the computer away (just kidding!) Laughing

Your kids like games? Maybe even yourself?

You didn't answer the other person's quesiton. How do you add java to the Iron browser as the Cloud-me site requires it.

Thanks.

--------------------------------------------------

In the post by keniv, he didn't ask to install java, he said he did not want to if I read it correctly! I explained another option to him.

Now, you don't install java to the Iron Browser... java gets installed in Cloud Puppy. It is in the Puppy Package Manager under UTILITY. The name of the file is: jre-1.6.0.20 Java Runtime Envronment and it is a '36M' download and requires that you have 150M free personal savefile space to download and install it... yep, it's a big one.

To get to it...

1: Select Cloud Puppy Menu
2: Select More Apps.
3: Then In the Icon-Box select More Apps Icon.

(This shows you all the other available applications available in Cloud Puppy.)

From the list select Puppy Package Manager.

You may have to update the package manager so select 'Configure Package Manaqer' and take all the updates or at least the Puppy-Lucid update as that is where the java file you need is.

jre-1.6.0.20 installs very well in Cloud Puppy. (I use it myself).

And that's how you do it! However, you may want to build your own 'Desktop' as explained in previous posts here instead of being 'tied' to what someone else thinks you should have... That is up to you!

Hi

sszindian is quite right. I did not want to install 36MB of java stuff and I was basically asking if there was anything similar that did not require this type of install as I did not want to sign up to another site only to find this was again required. Based on his reply I have given up on "the cloud" for the moment.

Regards,

Ken.
