It seems as though barry is taking this bull(KDE) by the horns and doing what he wants with it! I like the fact your trying to get rid of all the junk kde comes with, I think that fvwm will run fine with kde apps as like you were saying
get rid of the bloat!!! Good work barry and hope you got it figured out

p.s. "klh clears throat" I'll test drive it if you want!!!

While it seems a worthwhile project, the downloads (three in all, presumably all required) run to about 50 meg, or roughly 80-percent the size of the current Puppy. Maybe a St. Bernard Puppy version? Smile

Just thought that I'd add a noob's perspective. Never having used LINUX before, the fact that Puppy worked perfectly right out of the box (or perhaps I ought to say, right off the modem) was breathtaking. A nervous puppy became an enthusiastic and crusading puppy, and burned ten copies of the CD-image file for ten of his friends. The results were these:

Two couldn't have been bothered.

Of the remaining eight, two went right out to Wal-Mart and bought boxes with some distro already preloaded (LinSpire, I think).

Of the remaining six, two are so pleased, they are downloading PupGet packages and DotPUPs, as happy as children.

The final four said, it's beautiful, but does it come with KDE? It's the desktop I've seen most often.

Conclusion: the more options available, the more converts, I'd say. Remember that Windows refugees are used to much bloatedness.

So, if I understand you right barry, you could'nt tame konqueror??
Well, it happens. Maybe you could give it to someone who would host it
anyways for others wanting to mess with it???

So, seeing as krazy puppy was a crazy idea, what if anything are you going to integrate from this experience into the next release of puppy???

ok, so far I use KDE on faster computer. But not for having KDE itself, but for some interesting applications.
These are:
1.konqueror (but perhaps there are much file browsers out there, that have the same features, with less overloading Qts or so)
Maybe endeavour is worth a shot, because wou have an Image AND filebrowser then.
2.KOrganizer, a calandar and task manager
....well, the rest of kde can be replaced by other (better) apps for me

Hi,

do you know XfileExplorer http://www.murga.org/%7Epuppy/viewtopic.php?t=1922
and Monthcalendar http://www.murga.org/%7Epuppy/viewtopic.php?t=2026 ?

Not really comparable to the KDE-Programs, for example XFE does not support Ftp or other nice features.

But for me it is ok as alternative, I use Gftp for Ftp .

Greets, Mark

The calendar-files can be copied from Linux to windows without problems.

The Calendar works with Linux, XP and Win98.

PostPosted: Sat 29 Oct 2005, 14:22    Post_subject: kde for puppy  

ok i have got kde running in puppy. earlier i had tried to install kde in puppy but i had failed to get multimedia running.

this time around i have used slax .mo modules and got kde running in puppy

my installation consists of
puppy 1.0.5
a fresh pup file ~400 Mb
kde base
kde libs
arts
xorg server(from slax - arts does not work with the xorg.pup made by MU)
kde games (no sound ??)
kde multimedia (juk, kplayer, mplayer, kscd.. are all working - i have been using this as my default desktop for a week now)
kde network apps
kde pim

k3b is running but i have not been able to test it as i dont have a cd rw drive

the size of my complete installation is ~270 mb
making dotpups of these is out of question for now & i am still testing this.
if you want to help in the testing process i can write for you exact instructions on how to get slax .mo modules to working kde in puppy

Well done sir!

How long would it take to do this from scratch with your instructions? Are we talking an hour? An evening? A weekend?

From the sound of most of this thread It sounds like it may have been a bit of a long hard jobs.

The use of slax modules sounds like a strike of inspiration. Does this mean slax modules in general are now available for porting to puppy? That would be cool. Or was a case of considerable surgery on those unsuspecting lumps of code?

Again, Congratulations!

Chris
