I want to add this repository to the puppy package manger in puppy lucid 520.

it says here file:///usr/local/petget/README-add-repo.htm how you are supposed to be able to add a repository but when I open the files that it says to edit inside puppy, they look totally different from what is described, then I have no idea how or where to add my custom repository to the files.

What would be great is if someone could add http://scxd.info/pub/ as a repository for me to the files and let me download them and replace my existing files with edited ones cause I have no idea how I could do it myself.

It's a very complex method that most probably don't understand how to accomplish even advanced user would have trouble with this method at least I think so I am barely a Linux novice.

Also I would suggest that in future versions they built into the PPM a non-manual method of adding repositories like one where the user can put the url into the program and have PPM update the files for them.

For any advice you can provide, Best Regards..

Buster, that last link in your post doesn't work. When you figure out why, you can edit your post to correct it.
