Subject description: An Artsy Puplet for Artsy People!
 

DOWNLOAD (~635 MEG) --> http://www.puppylinuxstuff.meownplanet.net/starhawk/
MD5SUM = 6f2f8b52630e0ac6556422b1af363735

No screenshots for you! (It's quite late here. I'll do it tomorrow... maybe...)

Introducing a new Puplet for artists! VINCENT VAN PUP. Vinnie (for short) is rather a bit pudgy -- perhaps I should've named it Jabba The Pup -- ah, but there's nothing Star-Wars-y about it Razz the bulge comes from the NASA-esque kitchen-sink approach I took to including things. If it was practical, or could be useful, for an artist -- it was included. Of note, Vinnie is based off of Upup Raring 3992 Non-PAE. It'll run on basically anything -- including Poulsbo hardware! (Well, OK, I wouldn't want to run it on a Pentium 3 system with 128meg RAM -- see the Bare-Minimum and Recommended-Minimum System Specs below...)

Included in this Puplet are a whole pile of applications for creating digital artwork. Wine is in there, which means that if you want to add Adobe's Creative Suite or Photoshop or CorelDRAW or whatever, you're able to do that, right out of the box. I've also stuffed in The GIMP, in case Photoshop's outside your budget Wink and Xara Xtreme should substitute adequately for CorelDRAW, for those who like vector illustrations (SVG type stuff, anyone?). There's also MyPaint, which appears to be a very powerful application for digital painting -- I'm pretty sure that, given the right drivers and such, you could use it with (for example) a Wacom Tablet, and do some VERY nifty things. It can also be used with a mouse, of course... these are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg; Vinnie's got a TON of stuff!

Please download Vinnie and let me know how you like him (and how useful he is)!

Please also let me know, of course, if you find bugs, or would like to request additional features.

KNOWN BUGS --
(!) The 2barks sound effect goes off twice at firstboot. This is sort of purposeful (I made it so that it would go off once at every boot).
(!) GNU Paint shows up twice in the "Graphics" portion of the Puppy Menu.
(!) MyPaint shows up twice in the "Graphics" portion of the Puppy Menu.
(?) I did not test LightZone, to see if it worked. It's the only thing I didn't check!

BARE-MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS --
I put this together on my ASUS 1000HEB netbook. I'm going to say you don't want something much slower than that, so...
1.5 GHz Pentium M CPU (Celerons need not apply)
1.0 Gig RAM
1024x768 resolution (1024x600 netbook resolution works OKish if you've got good eyesight Razz )

RECOMMENDED-MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS --
1.6 GHz single-core CPU (such as an Intel Atom N270)
2.0 Gig RAM
1280x800 resolution

BASE ISO -- Upup Raring 3992 (NON PAE) -- raring-3.9.9.2-SCSI.iso
(sc0ttman's Woofy 0.91 was used to create this Puplet.)

APPLICATIONS REMOVED --
Abiword
Get-LibreOffice
Gnumeric
mtPaint version 3.44.18 (for upgrade purposes)

For once I left Seamonkey in there. I still say it's uglier than poorly groomed chimpanzee hindquarters... Shocked but it's functional in a pinch.

APPLICATIONS ADDED --
AutoAdjustPhoto GUI (image adjustment)
Ease (presentation software)
Extra Fonts DotPet (for LibreOffice)
GIMP 2.8.4 (the GNU Image Manipulation Program)
Google Chrome 26 (browser) [latest ver I could find as DotPet]
GNU Paint (aka GPaint -- WinXP MSPaint clone)
HPLIP Lite (for printing)
Java JRE (version 1.7u15)
LibreCAD (2D Computer Aided Design) [*.deb]
LibreOffice 4.1.2
LightLooks 9x Gold JWM Theme (from puppy.b0x.me)
LightZone (Digital Darkroom) [*.deb]
Mozilla Thunderbird 17.0.8 (email client)
mtPaint version 3.44.28 (slightly newer than the originally-included version)
MyPaint (very powerful digital painting application)
Tango Iconset (from puppy.b0x.me)
Wine 1.6 (Wine Is Not an Emulator Razz )
XaraLX Xara Xtreme 0.7r1785 (vector graphics & illustration, with some bitmap support, from the Puppy Wikka)

Very interesting Puppy!
Only 1 question, does it support animation in Xara?
I can't find any Puppy that support. Crying or Very sad

If the stock DotPet here supports it, then yes.

I honestly don't know... I'm not one for animations, it's all much too hard for me.

This thread is eerily quiet. Either nobody's using it or I did a better job than I thought was possible...

I suspect the former Sad

Hello, starhawk.

You pessimist, you! Laughing From http://www.quotegarden.com/smiles.html:

~Author Unknown

For starters, you've certainly been up to finding a catchy name for
your derivative! I'm downloading "Vinnie" now and will give you
some feedback in the coming couple of days.

In the meantime, have a great day! Cool TWYL!

Nice idea, especially in the absence of Grafpup. Surprised you didnt include the full version of Inkscape.

@ atle: oddly enough I'm not really interested in a DistroWatch feature.

@ darkcity: It slipped my mind Razz I'll try to add it in the next release...

Very nice pup! I will make good use of this. Love the fact that xara can export to illustrator EPS format.

If you do release any update I'd like to suggest the addition of the new version of peasy tools which allows you to rightclick on your music directory to select immediate random playing of everything in there. (nice easy way to get the music playing softly in the background without a fiddly player gui to fight with). Music while you paint...

Love the choice of wallpaper too! I'm a bit undecided about the usb icons but they're growing on me Smile

Overall I'm very happy to see this pup because Grafpup never did work right on my hardware. Nice work.

Thanks, greengeek! Can you link me to the PeasyTools?

Also -- can anyone confirm whether the two DEB-packaged applications (LightZone and LibreCAD) ever made it into the Puppy Menu? I know I didn't make *.desktop files for them... Embarassed

The "peasymp3_progs-4.3.pet" can be obtained here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=86654
- it plays vids as well as the music. There are several ways you can use it to play your media (each to his own...)
but my favourite method ('cos it's so quick and easy...) is the way I can just rightclick my Music directory and go straight into randomplay.

Thanks, L18L!

I'm thinking right now of leaving out the Legacy Grub Config listed there, as well as YASSM. I don't see any need for YASSM and I don't get along well with Grub at all...

Staying with just grub4dosconfig for booting is good (just my opinion)
