Subject description: Full sfs with all xdg menu entries
 

This is a total build of the complete 2.2 Open Office directly from their source tarball. It is The complete suite and will load int the same location as the Original OOo_215.sfs and this one contains menu entries for everything. I found that everything loads much faster than the original OOo_215.sfs.

Please respond to MU's post here-->http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=17331&search_id=76077873

I really would like to make sure no one else has to worry about the issue of creating entries like in the other sfs for Open Office 2.2 as that was the motivation for spending 6 hours creating this file.
Here is the download link that can also be found on MU's post as well.-->http://puppyisos.org/files/sfs/OpenOffice-2.2-mysticmarks/

Don't forget to:
#1. move/save the sfs file to /mnt/home
#2. reboot
#3. open console/terminal and type ---> fixmenus
#4. restart the window manager icewm

Enjoy! (and remember to relate your experience after install to MU!) Smile

First of all, let me say thank you for your work. I don't care about the speed of the program, but we have the possibility to use it.

Thanks again,

Matu

Subject description: relative speed
 

My slowest test machine has 256MB of ram, and a 2ghz processor. So this isnt going to be a great point of reference for you. However, my personal load times for the majority of open office apps went from around 5 seconds down to around 2 seconds. So that, for me, was quite an improvement.

No problem. Thanks for the little note of appreciation. Smile

I think it took about a minute and a half so based on what you day the load time could be as fast as 30-45 sec on the old machine that would be a real improvement. you could test it in qemu puppy limit the virtual ram to 64 Mb and lower the cycles in the config file (I think that can be done) it's usefull for testing which parts of an app are slowing it down (like slowmo cameras for atheletes).

Hi. Sounds great, but looks like the current site is over bandwidth. Is there a possibility of getting a mirror of this download up? Thanks. Hoping to try it out.

the site is back in 2 hours.
But expect bandwidth problems again, so try to download early when it is back.

Tested on the 64Mb 300 Mhz laptop still really slow but it seem a little more resonsive might even work if i had another 32 Mb ram. great work!
I think it still took around 120-140 sec to load did i mention the HD is really slow sounds like there is a giant beetle in my hard drive Shocked .

Cool, glad it loaded up for you. Ive finished my latest SFS file. This one will be uploaded today hopefully. It is going to contain JAVA, Flash, Azureus, and Frostwire. this is more of a file sharing geared sfs, where webmini_215.sfs was for browsing and lighter editing of web stuff. Im doing one last run through on the dev sites for the peer products to make sure there is no updates before i upload. Heads up for later on!

Would you like to try this for alternate download site, as mysticmarks' creations are becoming very popular.

Surely I am doing something bizarre, but I hope I can achieve fulfillment on this forum, as usual.
I downloaded and installed the 2.2 PupGet. Menu items were added to the Documents menu. But when I click on any of the items in the submenu, absolutely nothing happens. The .sfs is in my hard-disk root, along with all the other Puppy stuff.
