Subject description: A version of Puppy for tablets or UMPC's
 

Hi everyone!
I have been working on a puppy derivative called PLP, or Puppy Linux Portable. I is designed to work on tablets or UMPC's that use a touchscreen.
I really want to hear what everyone thinks of this idea, so please leave all your comments and ideas! Smile

EDIT:
I'm going to create a blog where you can further follow the development of PLP. It's address will be http://PuppyLinuxPortable.blogspot.com. That's all for now!

Here are some screenshots of PLP currently (click to visit on picasaweb):


This is the integrated Help Center.


This is the about box.


Here's one of just the taskbar.

That's all for now!

Great idea Smile

seems a great way to interact as can be seen from this video

there is also a Linux project (in Alpha) similar to the MS "Surface" project

Thanks for all the info everyone!
John, I will definitely be upgrading it! Do you know where I could get the .pup/pet for that wm?
Lobster the video is really cool and that's exactly how i pictured it.

I'm also planning to build a computer to run it on. Here are some details:
Possibly 12-15" touchscreen
Slide out keyboard
PLP running on CF card connected to IDE by one of these: http://www.psism.com/adcf.htm
Ipod-sized hard drive for Personal storage file

That's all for now! Leave more ideas!

Just a quick question Question :
Does anyone know where I can get a version of Puppy with no included programs? I would use Unleashed, but I don't have a computer with enough space to compile it. Thanks! Smile

EDIT:
Also, does anyone know a cool looking Window Manager that would be good for touchscreen use? Thanks! Smile

Here is a link that is for MU's small Puppy iso, 12 meg in all.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=14918&sid=34f7f3be82cb20746cf4d18a38364392

pizzasgood came up with pet b gone which will remove packages from your Puppy, check this out.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=17035

Looking to see what you can do with Puppy? This link might be just what you are looking for. It shows what everyone has done with puppy and I'm sure there are several window managers that might look nice.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=4001&sid=cae0c06d39f09a8cc683b40fc5dcc0d1

How many touch drivers have you used? I have a 7 inch touch screen that I had for gps in my truck, I don't know if it has linux drivers I'll have to check. Might be nice to see if I can get it to work on puppy.

cheers, martin

martin, I haven't gotten to actually try it with a touchscreen yet, because I'm still trying to find a screen. I'll probably get a used one from ebay for testing.

Thanks for all the links, I can use all the help I can get! Smile

PuppyLinuxGuy,

Thanks and Thanks again! I have a cheap and old laptop but it has a touchscreen built in. I have been looking for a puppy version with support for touchscreens.... Good luck with your work.

Brian, what are your laptop's Brand and version? I can add the drivers to PLP. Smile
And anyone else who has drivers for me would be greatly appreciated! I need lots so PLP can support as many monitors as possible.
Thanks!

http://www.amrel.com/federal_military_computer/download_center.html

My laptop is an old PIII, police computer made by AMREL. I know the some of the drivers from their website are win files: MicroTouch Touch Screen Driver Jan, 2001 Ver. 5.6, Dynopro Touch Screen Driver, COM1SWP.COM: Set COM1 port type as COM1, Touch screen port.

I found two drivers but they are for ubuntu so I have no idea if they can be used or ported... ie...I have a lot to learn!

http://packages.ubuntu.com/edgy/x11/xserver-xorg-input-dynapro
http://packages.ubuntu.com/edgy/x11/xserver-xorg-input-microtouch
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=382357

I hope this info helps. Thanks!

Brian,
I'm not sure if those versions of the drivers will work on Puppy, but 'll look for the originals and try those. Once I find them, I just have to figure out how to put them in a dotPup. Thanks so much for all the links!

If you can get my egalax touchscreen working you will be my official hero for a week.

It uses primary driver usbtouchscreen.ko, and this provides input to both XOrg & XVesa no problems except it's not calibrated properly.

evtouch.so/la is meant to do the calibration for XOrg, but it has never worked for me, depending on the evtouch version I get everything from no effect, to stuck pointer, to complete computer lockup.

I would like to drop evtouch completely and do the calibration in usbtouchscreen, I doubt it would be very hard and it would work for XVesa as well, but when I tried I couldn't get it compile so got stuck.

EDIT. I finally got it going with http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=104995#104995

Hi everyone!
I'm putting the development of PLP on hold so I can focus on my MMORPG Cat World. If you want more info on Cat World, visit http://catworldgame.blogspot.com/.

Keep posting ideas, though, so after PLP is resumed I'll have lots of stuff to work with!

Until then, bye!
