Hi Lobster,

I have installed v 3.6 In Lupu 5.1 with a few minor changes. I find it helpful and educational. I spent 10 minutes or so trying to use the Kids' stuff - which was my only abject failure.

Thanks for this and all your work on Puppy promotions as well as keeping many of us entertained.

My regards

FWIW I saw your screen capture code in the programming thread. Puppy computers are often low resource machines, so using a format that requires on the fly conversion could easily bog them down (mpeg, webm, divx, etc...) If you default to avi you can always convert afterwards. Its a trade-off though because it would use a lot more disk (and/or ram) space. I initially had support for X11-grab in woo-ff, but dropped it when I found out that none of the ffmpeg pets available at the time didn't support it.

As to the necessity, well... really, why do we even need a "package manager" to install new pets anyways. It could just as easily be a web page (see pupweb.org - for concept only - needs updated) or integrated into jwm (see my first puppy project - "The Pound") Its all a matter of preference. Some people want access to all of packages to test, while others just want to get the popular goods that they are familiar with. The developer gets to choose based on what they want that's missing and what their capabilities are.

To be honest I wish the pet specs files were outside of the package (similar to tinycore, but only 1 file) - it would make package management updates a lot easier. wget and a little bash could update a webpage or package manager regularly without having to download every (large) file

Hi technosaurus,

I failed to understand the relevance of your post, immediately above, to this thread; so I enquire politely if it was accidentally posted here? If not, then I definitely need an intro to Lobster's imaginary medical team

My regards

I have always felt that way about unofficial projects
since packages are suited for maybe a different kernel or glibc
that avoids mishaps and organizes everything nicely in one place independent of whatever last minute changes take place
in whatever is the latest version being used


keeping things simple is always best

so LIT is Lobsters way of being happy with his choices of what to install

anyone could modify the code for their own needs

Very Happy Hello,
@Ed,
Cool, more lit code...Ive played with the original forever, and welcome a new version....Sort of the ideal "easy edit launcher"...Kinda like how I did PupTV...

As for yodeling.....ummm....not my mantra.... Very Happy
For meditation, rather than flutes and sitars I prefer the instrumental work of Yngwie Malmsteen... Cool

And the AutoZen pet I made is annoying to the extreme... Laughing
What, no link to a personal lobster-dharma????

To get the most of it I`ll need to create a few symlinks, as I have no default browser...

What happened to puppy speak??

Thanks guys Cool
basically this is my personalisation
so I do what I want with it Smile
It is very simple because I am not much of a coder
- very easy to adapt

You need mountains (traditionally Alps)
It then echoes and makes more sense
. . . but not much
I have added Yodel++ for 3.7 as it contains non yodeling

Will search for that Jay Smile

I personally find the sitting still and noise mush of binaural beats is no where near as effective as traditional meditation techniques. However that is my experience Cool

I let most of it die a natural death . . .

I think some people felt they may have turned into elephants if pursuing

I am thinking of including Smile

I have just uploaded lit 3.7 - see first post shortly

It is a humbling experience to be outsmarted by a red herring . . . Embarassed

and talking of poisson rouge
For those in need of medical treatment, don't forget to take your meds.
. . . however an imaginary psychiatric team (which you can keep in a real cupboard or shoebox) is one of lifes luxuries.
You can of course use an imaginary shoe box or location . . .

Initiating conversations and interactions with such projections
can be both fun and illuminating. Many of us have a tendency to fantasy.

Back in the shoebox with me Smile

This sounds interesting and if it could be set to remind me to do things like taking my meds that would be cool. I often forget things like what I was doing on the computer from last time.
