I found tux paint as a pet and downloaded it. It wouldn't work, so I checked and it needed a dependency. I found that. Now I downloaded the extra stamps as a tar.gz. How do I get the stamps over to the program?
Pentium 3, 256 ram, puppy wary 5.2.2, old Dell laptop. Laptop runs great with puppy by the way.

tar.gz is an archive

have you tried opening with XArchive from the utilities menu? Cool

Tux paint works fine, and I did open the extra stamps but I don't know how to associate the file somehow with Tux Paint.

according to there website-

1. go to stamp directory in ROX-filer
/usr/local/share/tuxpaint/stamps
or
/usr/share/tuxpaint/stamps

2. copy stamp file into directory or sub-directory

3. Restart Tux Paint

----
see
http://tuxpaint.org/docs/html/EXTENDING.html


----
Where the stamp directory is goes depends on what value was set for "DATA_PREFIX" when Tux Paint was built. See INSTALL.txt for details.

By default, though, the directory is:

/usr/local/share/tuxpaint/stamps

although it could be-

/usr/share/tuxpaint/stamps

All stamp-related files go in the "stamps" directory. It's useful to create subdirectories and sub-subdirectories there to organize the stamps. (For example, you can have a "holidays" folder with "halloween" and "christmas" sub-folders.)
Cool

Awesome, I moved the file over that I downloaded to /usr/local/share/tuxpaint/stamps as you said, and it worked. The stamps were there. Thanks for your help.
