PostPosted: Wed 03 Mar 2010, 15:18    Post subject:  Introducing Bruno Puplet
Subject description: This is a new puplet built on Puppy 431
 

Bruno Pup 2.0 is a whole new look and uses the latest gnome directory icons. For system icons it uses a combination of gnome and crystal icons.

It includes wine, java and flash-player. I have also added plugins, extra codecs and needed extra drivers.

It has been pre-configured so there is little to do but boot up Bruno and run it.

A menu for windows programs is also included. which automatically detects the windows programs you add to the "wine drive" directory I added in root.

It includes Opera, Fire-fox and Sea-monkey web browsers. Fonts have been added to make browsing better.

I added sakura console with transparency.

It is camera ready; for cam chip and usb camera attachment.

I also added nine kinds of directory icons and added many kinds of extra icons. So you can customize it to what you like later on.

Bruno Pup also comes with my puppy resources - web-get, Woof search engine and eight puppy search engines as posted here.

I also forgot to include that if you run bruno on a usb drive with fat32 booting with syslinux, that you can also pop the usb into a windows box and use the portable apps in windows as well.

Bruno comes in a smaller iso and a larger one which includes Open Office.

Sounds Very Nice BigMike!
I love the fact you built it on 4.31! Thats my fave one so far and is rock solid. I'll try it out now and report back later. =)

*edit* Wow! That is quite the Puppy Repository there! What a Trooper!
Thanks!
Kirby

PostPosted: Wed 03 Mar 2010, 17:01    Post subject:  Installation requirements?
Subject description: what are the minimal specs?
 

Mike, thank you for your effort!

1?) Please tell us what are minimal system requirements! I assume, they would be about the same as for Puppy 4.3.1?
EDIT: Answer from BigMike - yes, about the same.

2?) Would it work in Compaq PC with AMD K6-2 533 MHz processor, 256 MB SD RAM, 30 GB HD ? (I tried to install regular Puppy 431 on it with persistent error 15... Crying or Very sad )
EDIT: Answer from BigMike - Should work, but better ~ 512 MB SD RAM.

3?) What release stage your Bruno is - alpha, beta, or stable? 2.0 should be stable, right? Can I put it for neighbor kids to use unassisted, or you releasing it now for initial testing?
EDIT: judging on version 2.0 - probably stable regular release.

One suggestion at the end - why put "Sakura" on a terminal? It sure sounds like a game (Kakuro, Sudoku, etc. Smile and surely WILL BE confused by many new users for a game. Why not put a title as "Terminal/Console/Shell/CLI" and (aka Sakura) if it's so desired?

Your puplet looks most appealing of them all! Exclamation

Very Happy

Good job

Yesterday I tried downloading the Bruno with OpenOffice
It required 7 hours - after 3 hours I gave up
(this is very slow for broadband - a major distro would take me an hour max)
This morning the smaller ISO took an hour
- not so bad but we need to host
somewhere faster
and those on dial up need to be aware of sizes and times . . .

And now to Bruno
Seems solid and that is a good thing
Some need java and the win.exe right there on the desktop
3 browsers - why not
It seems like a very personal puplet with the sakura terminal
Bruno achieves a simple, solid and complete everyday Puppy. Cool

Be interested how others get on . . .

I will now be returning to the frontiers - Quirky and any new wooflets Smile

I just downloaded this last night and I'm really looking forward to checking it out.

I may be able to post it on my puppy page, but I promised the gang in the 214X thread to post all the extra apps from that project too, so I'll have to do that first.

I love the screenshots and can't wait to look it over.

Thanks!
Sully

Hiyas BigMike
I just got done installing it and must say I like it very much! Great Choice of aps and is very pleasant with those nice Icons. I'll be using it daily so will report back with more news later.

Very Nice Job and Thank You for sharing it!
Kirby

I'm far to impatient to wait 64 hours for it to download Shocked

Between 1kb/s and 5kb/s Rolling Eyes ,

Wow, I'll bet on the tortoise in that race!

Definitely going to try this out on my ancient PIIII (1.0 GHz), 192 MB rig, at least until Rabbit Linux is ready.

Great work, BigMike. I salute you! Wink

Fantastic - I put it in the news.

Thanks, BigMike!

EDIT: Just saw that you changed the URL above. Is puppylinux.us still OK to use?

PostPosted: Sun 07 Mar 2010, 12:03    Post subject: Sound  

This is the best puplet I have tried. The sound actually works from the live cd on my Toshiba Satellite L30-101, but not as loud as Ubuntu which I have installed on my hard drive.

I tested the version with OpenOffice included (did not try it yet, but I will) it took about 50 minutes to download.

If or when you update Bruno could you include Truecrypt in the live .iso, please as a lot of my usb are encrypted using this, I know you have included some encryption software but is it compatible?

I like it! I only had one issue which is of my own making. I installed the Icewm.40something pet and the shutdown panel doesn't work right but other than that I love it! Very Happy

Hey Mike,

Two quick questions:

1. Did you really set up portable apps on this or is that just the front-end you're using? I'm interested in running a few things via portable apps, so I'm just curious how to get that piece working for me if I choose to add things.

2. How do I get these icons to stay deleted? Every time I reboot they are back. I remember reading about that, but I can't find the thread now.

Thanks,
Sully
