Hi.

If you have the LP2_Wine.sfs already loaded usually a single left click onto a .exe file will install the Program in Wine.

No need to use a right-click option.

When wine is loaded there is a mime-type definition set (loaded) that will send .exe files automatically to be executed with a command like: wine XourExeToInstall.

The same way it works with PortableApps applications in wine. There is a prepared PortableApplications.tar.gz file at my repository at smokey 01.com/RSH/. You can run portable applications frokm the PortableApps Starter or directly from its directory.

Thanks. Sometimes I have a tendency to over think things.

That did the job.
Now all I have to do is search thru the files of the program to find the icon so I can make a shortcut/run script and have the proper icon to represent it.
Thanks again.

Never mind. We all do have our limitations. Hopefully we will not enter new ones each and every day for the rest of our lives! Laughing

Operator error ?

I want to try this version running from USB so I downloaded the distro, burned a CD and booted up using the CD.
I did the install to a USB drive and upon rebooting it goes into an endless loop with :
================================
boot:
Could not find kernel image: vmlinuz

etc
etc

Oh yeah, I also copied the .ISO file to the USB drive hoping for miracles.
What do I do now ?

thanks

------------------------
It seems that I have solved my problem. After some reading I copied these files from the CD to the USB drive and now it boots.
-----
boot.cat
boot.msg
help1.msg
help2.msg
help3.msg
help4.msg
help5.msg
initrd.gz
isolinux.bin
isolinux.cfg
logo.16
StArtLPx2_202.sfs
vmlinuz
-------------------------------------
That seems somewhat cumbersome for a new user.
I will continue to poke around and see what turns up.
FWIW, it is very handsome Very Happy

Hetejas: I had the same problem. Use the Universal Installer found in the PET Install program. The Icon is in the favorites page on the desktop.
This is the best Puppy out there, once you get used to the concept. I just have 6 of the most important SFS files loaded (you can add more just read all post from where I start asking R-S-H questions, he mentions a script to use). I have all of the SFS files from the "Quick-SFS" program in the same directory of my Flash Drive where the StArtLPx2.202.sfs is. Which is where you put the other files.
It doesn't have Gparted so I went to the repo/single files and downloaded from there.
In the Utility section there is a program called "Resize personal storage file". When your save file starts to get full you can add more space. 2048MB being the most at one time, with 3.9GB total size for the save file being the most.


R-S-H: I did find an FBReader 0.12.10 that works, here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=32056
Still hoping for some indication on the best Calibre as FBReader sucks.

I noticed you forgot to post the Java jdk_6u45 in an sfs form? I have the Java jdk_6u45 downloaded put haven't figured out the best way to convert a Squashfs file, to many different tutorials out there. Could you post a link to a decent one? And how to set the "Class Path" to the java.exe in LazyPuppy. I would still like to at least get the Android SDK and APK-Multi-Tool up and running.

EDIT: Wow! I just noticed my phone is still at 100% charge will using the hotspot feature for over 2 hours. I've been using LazY Puppy the whole time.

I usually use the power from the computer via the USB cord (with it draped around the front of the computer) because this setup seem to help pull in the week signal from the tower better, but it usually means the battery will drain slowly as the power from the computer is not sufficient to keep it fully charged when using my Xubuntu distro.
Yet another reason to like LazY Puppy.

Thanks Andy.
You might be using a different version than mine.
I have GPARTED and no FAVORITES folder.

Did I read you correctly in that you are using Lazy Puppy as a hotspot ?

No. I'm using my phone as a hotspot.
I'm using 2.0.2 Final which only has Pdisk.
Favorites is a desktop page. On the bar in the upper part of the desktop you will see a Star. That's for the favorite page. I'm sure Quick-SFS is in the menu as well.
I loaded all the SFS from there and then unloaded. This gave me a huge selection of programs in the menu.

Ok, you are the only two users who posted this issue. I will check this, burning a CD, booting from CD and trying to install from CD. I don't have a CD drive at my home computer, so I could only test this by booting/installing from USB. Must do this on another location, which might take some days.

Yes, GParted should be installed, since it is in the original Lucid and I didn't remove this. It should be somewhere in a sub-menu of menu workstation. Everything from Desktop, Setup and System in other puppies you'll find in menu workstation and its sub-menus in LazY Puppy.

Yes, it is different to other puppies.

Quote:

Yes, this is because of the FAT32 filesystem used on USB flash.

Quote:

No, I did not forget. I did just give this a go but did not upload a file. Usually I do use the JAVA files from forum system to make LazY Puppy SFS files from.

You downloaded the jre-1.6u45-i586.sfs?

Just rename it to LP2_jre-1.6u45-i586.sfs, do a right-click onto it and choose Convert to LazY Puppy. The rest is self-explaining while doing. No need to add SFS dependencies.

You downloaded the jre-1.6u45-i586.pet?

Do a right click onto it (don't rename) and choose SFS-Installer.

You can use this SFS file as dependency on other SFS files that might need JAVA by doing a right-click onto such SFS file and choosing Add Dependencies. When running the Program from such SFS by a created RunScript, the JAVA will load automatically. RunScript? Do a right-click onto SFS ... ... ...

Forget the tutorials out there. Just do a right-click on a file and/or directory and look for its offered options. Will mostly do the job - except for some of your very special needs.

Sorry, but I don't know this. The JAVA developer should know this. I think this is equal or similar in puppies.

Thanks. I think you'll find some more - from time to time.

I'll double check the CD first chance I get. It should be right there with Pdisk. I sure didn't see it before.

I need the JDK (Java Development Kit), not just the JRE (Java Runtime Environment). This I downloaded straight from Oracle's web site and need to convert to a Squashfs file.
It's path to the java.exe I need to set up in the bash/bashrc file?
I just used the Windows speak to try the best I could to communicate what I needed to acomplish.

From there the Android SDK and APK-Multi-Tool (which is placed in a folder in the SDK) are sort of stand alone programs.
Setting up the adb.exe globally just makes things easier on me later on.

Ok,

here is the LP2_jdk1.6.0_45.sfs to download.

To set path for JAVA classes etc. please, go ask in the JAVA thread - I can't tell anything on that. You might need to edit the SFS to solve this. Do a right-click onto the SFS and choose SFS-Edit to edit the SFS.

Hi.

I don't know if this still is of any interest, but I gave it a try and here are the results:

- burned the LazYPuppy-202-EN-005.iso to a CD
- booted the computer using this CD
- mounted the CD manually (left-click onto CD drive icon, CD not removed from drive)
- used the Install to USB Flash from desktop
- activated option to install all files from CD (ticked the check box)
- started installing LazY Puppy to USB flash


After a few minutes the USB flash drive was formatted and all files has been installed onto the USB flash drive. Booted the computer successfully from this USB flash drive after shut down.

Sorry Guys, but it seems you did not mount the CD drive or did remove the CD from drive before installing LazY Puppy - probably? Question

Please, keep in mind: installing and remastering LazY Puppy needs to mount the boot partition (or boot drive) manually first!

Thanks,

RSH
