Hi wanderer, good to see that it works for you !

Quote:
downloaded and loaded get-latest-firefox

then put your firefox in the home directory


But, I'm not sure if I understand well. Isn't this a double firefox install ?
(firefox tcz from get-latest-firefox and the portable-firefox that I shared)

Fred

hi fredx

yes both firefoxes are installed

but only one (yours) is used

your firefox just uses the other firefox dependencies

your firefox writes to its folder

and does not touch the .mozilla folder of the other firefox in home


totally awesome

thank you so much again

Ok, have it your way of course, but I'd say it's a waste of space having 2 firefox installs.
I think only gtk3 tcz needs installed for the portable to work.
Probably upupbb has gtk3 so that's the reason why the portable-firefox works on upupbb.

hi fredx

with just gtk3 loaded
it still asks for other dependencies
i probably could run each down until i got it to run
i will probably try to do that
since less is more

with the whole shebang loaded it runs fine

thanks

Hey Wanders,

It would be interesting to see if Mike's portable stuff also works. Palemoon and seamonkey 2.46 portables.

hi darry

yes

i am playing with fredx firefox for now

but my long term goal is to have a script or set of instructions
that will allow applications from various sources
to be made into portable modules for corepup

like s243a and wiak have talked about

it will eventually use just core as a base
but now i use coreplus
because it has wifi and the extra desktops

since i have few skills i will have to ask others to help me

right now my process is

1. obtain a deb sce pet or sfs
2. unzip with uextract in upupbb
3. put in corepup
4. run it and try to figure out the dependencies

after i do this for fredx firefox
i will find other candidates

Hi wanderer, I tested now with fresh install of your corepup-6.

Indeed, only gtk3 may be not enough, I needed to install also dbus-glib.tcz, then the portable-firefox worked for me.
But I had permissions problem, my portable firefox is on /mnt/sda7/firefox and owned by root, so firefox wouldn't start because of no permission to write to the "profile" folder inside.
I fixed this way in terminal: (change ownership to tc)
Code:
sudo su     #  become root
chown -R tc:staff /mnt/sda7/firefox

After that firefox started right away when I clicked on the "ff" script.

Good luck !

Fred

Hi Wanderer,

Have you ever had a look at Tazpup the latest version has a script to download Browsers as you described and to download a full video mutimedia player etc - very similar to what you were talking about.

hi all

this is just a reminder that i am still working on corepup

in fact corepup is a part of the alternate puppy build system
since i am using components from corepup
in my modular puppy build system

since fredx has solved the firefox issue for corepup
it is a pretty complete system
i am working on tc 9 at this time
and will eventually post a corepup 9 iso
until then if you are interested
just download the tc 9 plus iso from either the link on this thread
or the tinycore site
since it is functionally identical

also i will do what was suggested in the alternative system thread
which is to put all important stuff in the first post
so it is easy to keep updated on the project
by just reading the first post
