Sub_title: (Or would someone compile it for me?)

I'm new to Puppy, so I don't know if it's possible to easily modify a source package to pup format... because I've been hoping to install wikidpad in my Puppy driven laptop.

If someone knows where I could get an already pup formated wikidpad or if some is willing to compile a package for me, I would like to hear from you. Thanks.

Sub_title: try this

[quote="TJK"]I'm new to Puppy"
So am I.

Wkidpad is a python-appz using wxpython as gui,
so you need python and wxpython to run WikidPad.

No compile needed.

IMHO: WikidPad is the best notetaking tool I have found
through the years.Its mostly known in the backslash-
world,but occasionally its mentioned in a linux-context.
The DIY-folks around here should really take a look,
if they are into customized notetaking,todo-tracking,
snippets or publishing.

That was the ranting.

I have played around with WikidPad a couple of days last week,
and all the newest versions t installed in puppy 3.01 -
except for version 1.9.15RC.

So if you dont have a preferred version,try 1.9.14RC,for now.
The developer introduced internationalization in
version 1.9.15RC - and I guess - that puppy may have a problem
with locales that does not go well with utf8,locales in python.
But I dont have a definite take on that problem yet.

As far as I remeber - do this:
Get the source for WikidPad 1.9.14RC

Go to linuxpackages.net and get the latest
python 2.5
wxpython 2.8 (?)
from the slackware 12 repository if possible.

On extraction the downloaded packages will be distributed
as dirs and files in the puppy-filesystem.

Extract the wikidpad-source to:
open a terminal in the WikidPad-directory and type:
"python WikidPad.py" (no quotes)
or create a shellscipt containing this line (no quotes):
python /usr/lib/python2.5/WikidPad/WikidPad.py
(note the capital W and P)

This should work.

If the instructions are inadequate, let me know -
and I will take a second look at the details .
You will - most likely - be up and running.

Anyway - considering the flexibility of both puppy and WikidPad -
I´m very interested in your setup and how you use WikidPad.
So feel free to share.

Good luck.

Hi greyindk,
Also new to puppy (most exactly to ToutouLinux03.01.4, the french translation of Puppy)
For doing this
Extract the wikidpad-source to:

am I expected to have created the WikiPad directory first: moving to
and there
"mkdir WikiPad"
(without quotes!)

On Toutou, Python 2.4 already exists. Can or may the installation of Python2.5 causes conflict version problems?

Kind regards
