Here is an Rerwin 4.311 based Pupplet with the latest 4.20 series Libreoffice and features Qt and Flash 10.183.90 and shinobar's Xine and browsers are Firefox ESR which will update to 24.5.0 and Midori - a version made by Technosaurus.

I would like to thank Mr Rerwin for his 4.31 update work and technosaurus and Shinobar and of curse Mikeb for Libreoffice fix for earlier Puppies.

I was able to get Libreoffice working using Mikeb's gcc from carolina fix and anyway enjoy but be warned due the size of the newer Libreoffice this sucker is a big download at 437mb. Sorry folks this is no lean Pup. http://sourceforge.net/projects/workhorseosfatpups/files/Workhorseos%20Puppy%20Linux%204.311%20edition/

looks like the standard 4.31 desktop with some added wallpapers as Rerwin made it. The changes were under the hood.

Glibc 2.10 update, Qt4-4.5.3-1 from wary, Xine-lib 1.1.19 and xine ui,
Full SDL librarires, Frisbee with libreadline, sqlite 3.6.12, newer Gtkam, akita browserlibs pet, ffmpeg update from Shinobar, Libreoffice 4.2.3.3, Mikeb's gcc from Carolina Puppy that i inserted into /opt/program directory of Libreoffice so it can run on Pup4's - thanks again Mike.
Glib 2.22.2 update from Technosaurus and his Midori 2.22 package etc. plus the updates he made however I have not added any external extra updates he made only what he included in his 4.3.1.1 updated iso. Finally Gtk 2.18.3 update and pango 1.22.3 the rematering was as usual done with woofy 0.91.

I was very impressed with Rerwin's work

P.S. Also JRE 1.6 installed too and grub4dos.

Thanks. As I recall, the Midori browser was pretty good. Can't get around the Libre size issue. It's still arguably the best so worth the size. Giving her a whirl....

Best,

Yep 210mb is pretty big. Here is the original Midori - Technosaurus for those interested -

I would like to report back that it appears the Midori is not working. I attempted via the menu entry and also via terminal. The Seamonkey works via terminal with dead menu links and the Firefox works fine (using it now).

Hi darry. I've downloaded WorkhorseOS and am posting from it now; it looks good and is working well (it's replacing 4.32 on my system). Thanks for all your hard work.

Actually that was me, but I forgive you. Wink

Glad to see it's being used by someone other than me. I'm running new versions of LibreOffice in Fluppy and it's nice not to have to upgrade the OS just to get the latest office suite.
