Barry,

Hooray!

Gnumeric made it in puppy! Now if there will only be a presentation software ala powerpoint and puppy will now be complete! Is there a good presentation software for Linux? OpenOffice would be too big for puppy.

Is there a way to make Gnumeric "a presentation software"?

Que?

Open Office may be too big for Puppy but Puppy is big enough to have Open Office as a Pupget and built into Chubby Puppy. It comes with a presentation program.

Hi,

Attached is a printscreen of my Chubby Puppy desktop along with a picture of this morning's liftoff of the space shuttle which I was watching - used the RealPlayer software for the NASA page.

You can see that the icons for Open Office are on the desktop...along with a few others.

The screenshot is fantastic but what are those bits falling off the shuttle, not Puppies I hope.

thanks for the input. still feel that puppy would be better with another presentation software instead of the whole open office. with gnumeric, abiword and a presentation software, who needs windows and its ms office? Very Happy

You could always do it with composer (window / composer in Mozilla)
like wot I did this one . . .

http://www.zen45800.zen.co.uk/puppy/index.htm

and then make your presentation available on the Net . . .

i guess you know about the meta refresh tag
you can use it to automatically load the next web page
like a slide show ... something like:

Code:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10;url=http://www.zen45800.zen.co.uk/puppy/page1.htm">

Thanks G2
Use javascript - perhaps create images for slides and then a slideshow program.

Anyone got code?

Yes use the logos

Is there no existing MS-powerpoint presentation counterpart in linux aside from Koffce & openoffice to be included in puppy?

Puppy standard has Scribus which can export files to PDF, a good presentation substitute. What is good about PDF is that it uses only one file, just like a presentation file.

Or you can use individual image files, loaded via Image Manager. Press DOWNARROW and the next image is displayed.

Of course, as most everyone recommends, HTML is best, even allowing you to use animated images. The downside is that you have to carry around a number of files in one subdirectory. Not a real problem, I guess.

Another program (I think inbuilt in 1.0.4) and a pupget in 1.0.5rc is Impress

It has multiple pages and was designed for presentations

It allows you to concentrate on the info rather than sounds and special effects and distractions . . .

- funny concept that . . .

I always found after 20 pages presentation programs become flaky - but have only used the Ami Suite one and Presentation manager - be interested how people get on with Impress

- hey do I sense a Puppy presentation coming on . . .

anyway hope it is of some interest / use

Have tried impress but find it more like a drawing program instead of a presentation program (still don't know how to rearrange the different pages). scribus is ok but pdf is basically static and on-the-spot changes are not possible.

html is currently the best option (but i still have to learn!). hope lobster is right!
