The truncate version af Archpup 13.2 is incompatible with find_cat.
Try version 0.3 above.
Install with "-Uf" so will overwrite the original /usr/bin/truncate file


I have used latest version only. May be due to other problem in my installation. Not displaying detailed error report.

If you do not get a "fail to install" dialog then it is a problem with your installation.
If you do, re-download and install the latest version (now v 0.4; does not need to be installed with the -f option)

Not really.
Is just a symlink in the install script. I'll see to it but does not affect anything.
Latter: Fixed now. Thx

However, your filesystem should NOT be 777 Shocked
What is the output of the "ls -l /" command?

You installation is messed up (or hacked...).
Only /tmp should be "drwxrwxrwt" or "drwxrwxrwx".
Wipe it and start afresh

So now you can either use petmanager_archpup to install a pet for yourself or pet2arch to install it for yourself and pass it to the others Laughing
Give it a try.


I would like to inform you that now I am able to install PET file through "petmanager-archpup". I got installed PeasyPDFv2.3 got through today's Barry's blog2 announcement. This PasyPDFv2.3 is very very small. Only 3.00KB !!. However function wise very BIG. This type of program is required for Archpuppy, so that we can maintain the size of the ISO as desired by us. Mavrothal Thanks. Keep it up. PeasyPDF link is given below for your consideration
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-noarch/peasypdf-2.3.pet

However, no menu entry is created while installing through ArchPet Manager. How to make menu entry. I hope, I can make shortcut for PeasyPDF in xface provided by Stiffing.

PeasyPDF requires Ghostscript and I notice that ArchPup does not have it.

How did you get Ghostscript? By installing some printing components?

Just downloaded and tried again. Works file.
Are you running it on Archpup or any other puppy?
It requires to run in Archpup and /usr/share/pacman/PKGBUILD.proto to be present.
I guess I'll put some more checks and warnings

wtf?!
And really I can't see point in converting pet package to pkg.tar.xz and installing it with pacman.
Why is that required? Who needs pet packages anyway?
Converting packages from other distribution makes sense for small distro like Slitaz
because it lacks some applications in its repository, like the ones based on gnome or kde.
Why is so hard so make proper PKGBUILD?
Looks like Puppy linux users like to invent their own rules, strange and funny ones.
Example: pet package is the only file installation format in linux world, that lacks basic thing like
information about 'what options are used in package building process'.
Next, why breaking standard desktop specifications, inventing new menu categories like Games suddenly
becomes _Fun, Office -> Personal?! etc.

Small doesn't always means the best. Take usability in your equation..
PS. Sorry for lousy English. And, sorry if you're sensitive enough and this hurts you in any way.

As I said, I can only try to get the horse to the water...

Now if we play the "Who needs" game, then why Arch is not good enough and we need Archpup, and why Debian or Fedora is not good enough and we need Arch, and why...?
You see where this ends?

But if you want to be more specific, some people for example may not see any serious advantage just having good old Arch running in RAM. At the end of the day they may think is just as slow or as fast, as big or as small as the original and just more buggy.

Now regarding puppy packages, yes there is a lot of junk around, but no other distro does so much, in so many ways, in so many different types of hardware, so easily and so fast, at under 150MB. This should tell you something about some puppy packages at least.

Hopefully, your English is good enough to understand that I'm not trying to hurt your fillings. I'm just pointing out a different line of thinking.
