Thanks for the kind comments.

I am continuing to improve and add more information.

I'm considering adding some video tutorial links and some of the more advanced stuff like dir2pet etc.

I have already included suggestions from bigpup and PF-flyer which will be in Ver 002.

Somkey01,

Be careful with links. They can go dead. Links to the forum or the main Puppy sites should be OK.

Smokey,

Some new info to consider using.

menu->desktop->desktop settings->desksetup

Make desksetup - Desksetup Templates for Desk Icons


Quote:
If you have a very busy desktop this is a good way to tidy it up, however, when you select Traditional - full desktop icons, only the default icons seem to return. Any that you had manually added previously will have to be re-added.


Change this info to read:
If you have a very busy desktop this is a good way to tidy it up.

If you have added or changed anything on desktop and want to go back to that look later on, make a custom copy.
To make custom copy:
Before any other selections.
Select click this button to save your custom arrangment.
To use the custom copy:
Select custom - choose your saved profile

when you select Traditional - full desktop icons, only the default icons will return.

Are you double clicking on the links?

It does seem to be very sensitive to how you double left mouse click.
For me it needs to be a very quick double click.

Excellent help file and an easy read - many thanks for your efforts. This feature would be helpful for most breeds of puppy.http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/images/icons/icon14.gif

I have released Puppy Help 101.

The attached may not be perfect but it should be of significant help to new comers.

I have not used any graphics in an effort to keep the file size down but I have used a lot of Internet links.

I guess it could be described as an interactive tutorial.

The help file installs to /usr/share/doc and it can be executed from Menu Item Documents.

Smokey01


I will install it right away, thx
