Sub_title: Comix reader seems to be a cool reader, but I've found none for puppy. Any pets?
 

I've been a MSWin user for so long, that I didn't think to try other OS's. Now that I'm free of it I've fallen for puppy distros. I'm still new to linux, so I'm looking for a comicbook reader. Comix and CDisplay are the two I've used in the past, but are there any other .cbz and .cbr readers available. I'm looking for pre-packaged ones because I'm not near as knowledgeable as the rest on this forum, so any help will be helpful in making me spread the gospel of Linux. Thanks. Very Happy

Comix here:

Comical and cbrpager here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=13937

Some of these links are fairly old so I tested this link http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Reading/Comical-0.8.pup and the first one for Comix. Both work.

Did you try using the search function in this forum?

I wonder if someone should try compiling a new version of Comical. I never did get the dotpup to work, a while back (probably while I was still running Puppy 4.2.1), but I don't remember why. I tried to compile it myself, today, but I ended up with a handful of errors and the compilation window disappeared before I could read it, much less copy/paste... yeah, I should probably try it outside of pcompile.

Also the latest vesion of 2.14X-top7 has an updated version of evince which handle comic books. So 2.14X would be the only puppy version to handle comic format out of the box.

Hey everyone,
Thanks for your input and help, but I'm still not able to get these to work. I must still be a newbie. Comix's was not complete due to broken links for the python pupget's. I'll keep trying. I may not be doing it correctly. thanks.
