When I prepare a pet package (with “tgz2pet” in a console window) like Mobility or Simutrans starting from a .tgz package I think there are problems with dependencies. I try to install it and at the end of the installation Puppy correctly informs there is no menu entry. I scan the system and I find “buttons” Simutrans and Start_Mobility both in “/” and in “/initrd/pup_rw”, but clicking on them the software does not start. Any suggestion? How can I create a proper .pet package with the menu entry as well?Or how can I modify the menu for including new software?
Have you tried moving to the directory where the application installed, opening a terminal there and typing the application name?
If the application is missing some dependencies more information should display in the terminal window as to what the application cannot find.
