hi, noob question:

python at command line returns "command not found".

however, ppm show green 'installed' checkmarks next to

"python-2.7.5" [slackware 14.1 official]
and
"python-2.7.3-i686-s" [puppy slacko 14.1 official]

confused! Is python installed? is there some way to 'register' it?

thx

It mustn't be installed if you get the command not found message.

I would use 'pfind' to check in /usr to see if any python code is there.

The devx file usually has libpython. I don't know why.

I have some python 2.7.8 packages available. The precise version
should work on slacko as well.

so if ppm claims it's installed, and it's not installed, then would that be a bug?

what should i do if i find python code in /usr?

thx, you're right!

i assumed devx contains python because python is for development. is that incorrect?

thx for that!

i used slackbuilds to compile a python package for my slacko from source. wow, can't believe i just said that. then i loaded my python package on-the-fly, and that worked. wow.

many thx!

Barry is trying to keep his distro as small as possible,
so he puts anything non-essential in the devx package, I guess.
There are a couple of apps that need pygtk . Mypaint is the one I use.

Subject description: Just some MBs but so useful.
 

" If you want to use Puppy for productivity (it is a hobby distro) use LibreOffice, Open Office, TextMaker Office or if you must, MS office in Wine. As far as I know up to 2007 works."
I cconfirm i rarely spend time in productivity at home once my office hours finished. Abiword will be enough for me. Big Office suites are stored in my tool case, if needed.
Pls let abiword as default type-writing tool, for newbies. And for my personal notes.
Topic is 42 pages in english. What is in the menu (applications) before i download the ISO ? It was an habit to list them in first topic.
I run Slacko 5.3.3 XFCE by Jejy69 untill now.

Subject description: Slacko 5.7-2015a Missing home Icon and other components?
 

I have downloaded Slacko 5.7-2015a from this site:
https://archive.org/details/slacko5.7-2015a
The target machine is an ASUS Eee PC 4G Surf 701 2GB RAM 4GB SSD
There is no 'home file' icon on desktop.
There are other components missing, for example: Wallpaper changer.

Have downloaded the correct .iso?

Just curious, does typing "rox" or "wallpaper" in Console (might be called Terminal or Urxvt) work?

Subject description: Terminal Inquiry
 

Hello unicorn316386 Smile
I haven't tried a terminal inquiry.
I just shut the machine down for the night or I would give you an immediate answer.
What would be the reason to use terminal to activate the home file?
It would seem that is a necessary icon to have on the desktop?

Thank you for the response.

That web site does say that is a modified version of Slacko 5.7 for the EEEE PC.
The info statement does say things have been removed, just not much detail on what.
Being a remake, it could have been done and something got missed in the build.

PostPosted: Sun 31 Jan 2016, 15:58    Post subject: Electronic development on the ASUS X101CH
Subject description: tools that work on Slacko 5.7.0
 

After my ASUS 1001AH broke down 1 year ago, I was looking at a replacement for it. Stumbled on a X101CH 1 year ago, but after purchase realized after weeks of trying it had an Atom N2600 that had no support for hardware acceleration in it under linux. And with 1G memory soldered onto the board (no expansion) it ended up in a drawer.

Until 2 weeks ago...

I needed a mobile machine to do some development on. To take with me on a trip. Video acceleration would not be needed. Tried several puppies, and found that the one that performed best was Slacko 5.7.0 (newer kernel than 5.7).

Installed my tools, and all of them work.
- Arduino (older 1.0.3, don't need a new one) with java 1.7 SFS
- PICAXE environment
- Logic analyzer software (Saleae) that support the 10 euro USB logic analyzer hardware.
- Simetrix...that one was a hard one to find. Simetrix stopped supporting linux while ago, so this is an older version (0.62).

And I added a planner software (ganttproject).Not that I need it, but it is a nice program that runs fine under linux.

All this takes about 160 Mbyte from my save file (frugal install on sd card).

PostPosted: Mon 08 Feb 2016, 05:21    Post subject: Last grisbi for Slacko 5.7 compiled by Medor  

Grisbi compiled by Medor for slacko 5.7 users Read his topic to get the SFS.
I tried to compile Grisbi, for Wary. Not so bad but segmentation fault. Medor provides applications for Slacko and french Toutous. Merci à lui. Thanks
Lot of people would like to save money and do not trash the old computer running XP. Slacko 5.3.3 would be fine to save it from destroy (as it runs in 512MB RAM, due its low size)..
Grisbi would be helpful to manage the few money they hold in banks.
I try to compile it, i am a beginner Sad
FYI Slacko is used as base of French puplet Slaxen (pub pour french users)
