I do: 2nd Speech Center (text -to-speech); AllerCalc (financial calculator); Atlantis Word Processor; CyberSky (Astronomy); IrfanView (image viewer/converter/editor); I-SoundPro (sound recorder); mp3DirectCut (mp3 cutter/joiner/editor/recorder); MP3Tag (mp3 tagger); mp3Trackmaker (mp3 joiner/cutter); NNNesterJ (nes game emulator); Splitter (file splitter and joiner); Spreadsheet32; SumatraPDF (pdf reader); uTorrent; WinRAR; XMplay (audio player with dsp effects). Unfortunately can't get Lotus Organizer (PIM) to run. All of them are relatively small in size.

See THIS POST about Acerose Password Vault v1.02.
I run the portable version of this from the Flash Drive on which it is held. [It can be installed if preferred]
I run the "winefile" command at a terminal command prompt, navigate to the exe file using the Z: drive in WINE, and click on the exe to run it.
I can run this using various Puppies.

Morning, all.

If I'm right, a lot of the apps LazYPuppy mentions above are from the portableapps.com website. I recognise them, because I've started experimenting with these myself recently!

They run very well indeed. I'm on WINE version 1.7.51; it runs everything I want it to run, including Photoshop CS2 & parts of M$ Office 2000 (WORD, mainly, and Exel; don't even think about Outlook Express..!)

Others include Mooi's Photoscape, M$'s own 'Paint' program (there's still stuff I find this invaluable for, like modifying graphics on a pixel-by-pixel basis), IrfanView, and Linear Technology's LTSpice-IV, for circuit diagrams.

I also have the current version of the Jarte word processor, and Adobe's Digital Editions e-Book reader (thanks to Jakob Cornelis for the tip on this one). Also Foxit's current release of their PDF reader, too; this runs better under WINE than the native Linux version does.

The 'portables' all run from their own 'PortableApps' folder in /root. A lot of WINE stuff doesn't generate it's own Menu entries, so I make these up, too.....thanks to mikeslr for the tip on how to do these, around 18 months ago. Nice one, Mike! Cheers.

--------------------------------

As musher0 told me a while back, there's no shame in running a mixture of Linux and Windows stuff. Just accept the fact that for some things, Windows apps are better.....and for other things, Linux stuff works fine. It's all about getting things done, at the end of the day; there's no point in being so dogmatic that you shoot your own foot in the process..!

--------------------------------

@Nic007:- Just out of curiosity, what version of WINE are you running.....and where from, or who put it together?

Hi, Mike. As old and small as possible (mine is version 1.1.41) and works from puppy 412 through tahr. Can't remember who compiled it, it's OLD (greendome?). The version of the programs also not the most recent possibly. I agree portable applications are best to use however none of the programs I use are portable versions. I just copied the particular folders from my XP machine and made one SFS file which gets loaded at bootup. I run it either via scripts I made for each exe (which I all have in one folder) or via menu entry (I made desktop files for each).

Hiya, Nic.

Mm-hm. Portable apps definitely work best.....and since I use the same version of WINE in all my Pups, it's only a case of copying over the entire /root/PortableApps directory, and installing the appropriate MenuEntry .pets.

My WINE 1.7.51 is by version2013.....which, as I understand it, is simply greendome's current incarnation on the Forum. The guy's an understated genius; I've never had the slightest problem with getting his stuff running (and it always works perfectly!)

Just installed SmartDeblurPortable from the portableapps.com site, for sharpening up out-of-focus pictures. I get quite a few of these when I'm working with images sourced off the 'net.....and you can never tell from thumbnail images how good the image really is until you've downloaded it.

Works rather well, TBH; I'm quite pleased with that one..!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I guess, if I'm perfectly honest here, that I could simply move the entire PortableApps directory to a USB drive, and run them all from there.....switching between machines, and editing the Menu entries to suit. I've got some SanDisk Cruzer 'Fit' nano-sized USB 3.0 drives; I can't boot off them, 'cos I use a USB 3.0 PCI-e slot adapter card (boot microcode would need to be flashed to the adapter card's ROM chip, and none of them have that capability as of the present day).....but even running via a USB 2.0 slot, they're a hell of a lot faster than a standard USB 2.0 flash drive; so 'latency' under WINE shouldn't be that much of a problem, really.

Mm. Interesting idea. There's another project to play around with..... Laughing

I've just done some experimenting with PortableApps running from one of my USB 3.0 flash drives.....and it works really well.

I copied the entire 'PortableApps' folder across to the drive, freshly re-formatted to ext3. I then created a 'LAUNCH' folder alongside it, containing simple launch scripts for each app. These are merely a modification of the normal entries I get with my MenuEntry .pets for these, found in /root/my-applications/bin.

For instance, IrfanView changes from:-

Code:
#!/bin/sh
wine /root/PortableApps/IrfanviewPortable/IrfanViewPortable.exe


.....to:-

Code:
#!/bin/sh
wine /mnt/sdh1/PortableApps/IrfanviewPortable/IrfanViewPortable.exe


.....reflecting the change of location from /root to /mnt/sdh1. So all you need to do is enter the 'LAUNCH' directory and click on the appropriate script. Easy-peasy!

I did originally try simply sym-linking the .exe files themselves across to the 'LAUNCH' directory, but I got the complaint that the '.appinfo' file couldn't be found..... Go figure. Rolling Eyes So, launcher scripts it is!

If you want to run this on different machines, you would need to modify the launcher script to reflect the appropriate location of the drive, since it isn't necessarily going to be the same from one machine to the next, depending on what peripherals you regularly have connected. Therefore, I would think it might be just as easy to have more than one launcher script for each app, depending on which machine you wish to run it on.....labelled appropriately so that you know which is which.

My SFS with all windows programs expands to / so always the same directory for the scripts. But as you say, the programmes could be all over the show one just needs to specify the correct paths in ones scripts for the exe's.

Right!

Though, I'm not using the PortableApps starter, since I'd setup my system to run .exe files out of the box after clicking its menu entry (they are automatically collected into one of my Menu Pipes at boot up).

Maybe this is a silly question, but... Is it possible to use the uuid of a drive/partition in scripts?
I mean, to make the path to certain partition, absolute.
Using the blkid command (https://linux.die.net/man/8/blkid) like in Grub.

Just wondering, sorry if is too nonsense.

Saludos.

Nah, not a silly question at all, mate.

rcrsn51 has performed that very operation at the end of his Samba-TNG auto-start script...

Code:
#!/bin/sh

#Wait until the network is active
WAIT=20
while [ "$WAIT" -gt 0 ]; do
  NETWORK=$(route -n | awk '/^[0-9]/ && ($1 !~ /^0.0/) && ($1 !~ /^127.0/) && ($1 !~ /^169.254/) {print $1}')
  [ "$NETWORK" ] && break
  sleep 1
  ((WAIT--))
done

if [ -z "$NETWORK" ]; then
  Xdialog --title " " --msgbox "No network detected!" 0 0
  exit 1
fi

#Mount any shared drives here, like:
mount -U d02d3eb7-4f23-4608-af43-85b7bf7a86bf /mnt/sda1
mount -U a003a133-8dbf-4082-b831-b779b6ffb9ad /mnt/sda10
mount -U 61885f69-428c-4bf1-bf7a-adf8c1432a76 /mnt/sdg1
mount -U cde0f99c-d39d-43b8-9be9-28073cf4f7d8 /mnt/sdg2


#Start the Samba-TNG server
samba-start
Xdialog --title " " --infobox "Samba-TNG started" 0 0 2000


I use this in Precise 571 for auto-mounting at boot-time, 'cos the version of pMount in 571 is quite old, and you can't specify auto-mounting with it like you can in the 6-series Pups (and Slacko 570, in fact.)

The -U parameter tells 'mount' to use the UUIID that you give it, which you find with the blkid command.

Same here. I installed and setup Dev C++ 4.9.9.2 and Wolf4SDL then just squashed /root/.wine into a 20MB sfs so I can load it all up pre-ready whenever I want. Was going to try Code::Blocks too in Wine to see how well it works, thanks for reminding me.

the geekers write for ubutu mint? :

http://www.howtogeek.com/171565/how-to-install-microsoft-office-on-linux/


:

how to geek they say :
----------------------------------
Installing Microsoft Office With Wine

We tested Office 2007 with this process, as Office 2013 is known not to work properly and Office 2010 doesn’t appear to be well supported. If you want to use an older version of Office, like Office 2003, you’ll likely find that it works even better. If you want to install Office 2010, you may need to perform some more tweaks — check the Wine AppDB page for the version of Office you want to install for more information.

We didn’t run into any problems while installing Office 2007
------------------------------------


inpuppy seems impossible nobody can mnage or have tried this essential program to run?

the microsoft office taste is also heavy missing in all endles numerous puppies for all tastes as is said for that?Wink

not possible to cook spice up ap puppy with this ?

like geniuos mike welsh made greate tastfull puppy wine super taste menue long
recepeit for phortoshop Smile)
big thank!


i think many are hungry for such mikes welsh wine tastefull puppy receecepeit pet sfs for microsofft office
which geekers claim to be to realise with no problems

maybe hopefully inspiration and fun chalange for puppy heroes geeks Smile
i adore and have big respect of them !

Hi, kiramm.

If you want Office to run under WINE, then you can't run the new versions. It will have to be an older version.....like 2010, 2007, 2003, or even (*gulp*) 2000. This is the one I use, BUT: I have this on disc.

You will not get this as a download, no way. I know. I've tried over the years, trust me..!

Mine is the Office 2000 Small Business suite, which came as a 2-disc set. I've used the 'custom' install option, and only installed those components I want; primarily Word. I wanted Publisher, too, but it refuses to run.

You will have to find this as a disc, somewhere. And before you ask, no! I am not going to remaster a Puppy to include WINE plus a shedload of expensive Adobe and Microsoft stuff.

THAT I draw the line at, mate. There are limits.....!! And anyway, even if it runs on MY hardware, that's no guarantee it'll run on yours.....


Mike. Wink
