There should be an icon on the desktop that says "install". You can use that to launch the PETget package manager. It lets you download official packages and uninstall any .pet files you've installed, (including unofficial .pet packages, unless the creator of the package specifically set it to not register with PETget).

Uninstalling built-in packages is trickier. I wrote a utility to help with it called PET-Be-Gone (but be warned: it has been known to explode in people's face every now and then, so back up first (you especially need to back up /root/.packages, which is a hidden directory and contains important data for PETget)). Even if you don't use it, reading the post for it will clear up why uninstalling built-in packages is tricky:

That was my objective also and what appears to be a simple thing on the surface really is not

There are a few creative ways of removing programs some of those ways requires you to be a ( programmer/hacker/detective /lucky at winning the lottery) to figure out how to do it Shocked


I went a different route I just didn't put many large and small programs in the iso so you can EASILY add what you want with the pre-installed PET-GET manager and updating is easy also



a bug fix is needed for version 3.01 when installing package live CD when it is installed frugal or full install there is no problem

bug fix here

click on it to open it then copy it to /usr/sbin it will over write the error in pet-get

I'm asking a question I was about to ask here, but moving it to the TTUUXXX forum. Yes, I said the TTUUXXX forum. Very Happy It's awfully quiet in there for some unknown reason. My question is about Fat Free. I'll ask it when I'm better organized... and can remember what it was. I go through so many Puppy build I can never keep a bookmark for very long to find my way back to a question I asked.
