Why is Quickpet or Slickpet missing in all the new versions? For example:
1) In Quirky 1.4
2) In Slacko 5.4 Beta
3) In Precise Puppy 5.4
4) And other Derivatives of the above listed distros.

Anybody knows the Answer?

Thanks.

I must admit I miss them too.
It's much easier to use them than mess about with dependencies, Firefox asked for them when I tried to install on Precise.

I think Quickpet was made by whoever helped with Lucid Puppy, and Slickpet is technically a modified & smaller version of Quickpet (and is made for Slacko).

Does that answer any questions

Does this mean that they cannot continue Quickpet & Slickpet?

Anybody would miss them. I am telling this because I'm missing them too.

Whenever a new Puppy is released, it has taken a long time to make sure all the really important stuff that makes it a working Puppy is, well, uh, working.

The original version of Lucid did not have a Quickpet, if I remember correctly, and the original release of Slacko did not have a Slickpet, if I remember correctly. (I could be wrong about that one...I have been wrong before, at least once, I think.)

Quirky was not designed to have a Quirkpet, and probably will never have one, unless you decide it needs one and get all geeked up for the task, (i.e. develop it yourself). Quirky was Barry being, well, uh, quirky, by embedding programs right into the kernel to see what that would do.

So, if you just keep your socks on, I think you may see a Quickpet for Precise in the future, and a Slickpet for Slacko in the future, but not a Quirkpet.

These are my predictions.

Quickpet

It was made as a special feature of Lucid Puppy and was designed to work only in Lucid Puppy.

slickpet

01micko did the same thing for Slacko Puppy. It was his version of Quickpet for Slacko. I remember some comment he made about the code for it was a mess, so he decided to not have it in newer versions of Slacko Puppy.

What I really hated about it was that it downloaded directly from Ibiblio.org, (although I do recall seeing a .pet somewhere that did a redirect to Internode) and I nearly always find NLUUG to be my preference. Even though I'm on another continent, and even though technically they run at the same 100Mb/s speed, NLUUG is always faster. (Must be because they're sitting on that major Internet artery there in the Netherlands. Wink )

What I liked about it was the convenient organization, which was especially handy if I was tired, or brain dead even. (But why am I using past tense when I still use Lucid Puppy once in a while??? Oh, well.) I often used it to locate .sfs programs in a "one stop shop."

But we adapt. Unless they try to give us Unity Desktop. Then we revert to
Vector and still use Puppy 98% of the time. Laughing

mufeed2012 advised in Slacko beta 5.4 thread that it works in that version - see page 32, third post from top
