Hello, adagio.

Thanks for the heads-up. It's feast for the eyes, judging from their screenshots. But it appears to be a biggie, all divided in smaller files.

Aside from the patience required to assemble those in a pet or sfs, we'd have to check the dependencies required vs what we have on various Puppies.

Big project, that. I don't have the time right now. But nice to know it exists.

BFN.

Likewise.

What a dog's breakfast.
Maybe it IS destined for Puppy.

I just spent 10mins installing the core files, and getting bogged down with deps.

I'll re-visit it another time.
I like the look of it.

So do I, but I think it's too complicated for Puppy which thrives on lightweight apps. I've recently downloaded Salix 13.37 Mate though, and will be trying that soon.

I have a CD copy of Mint-12, and Mate is available to add on.
It is included in the DVD version.

So I installed Mint, and hate it.
It used to be my favourite a few years ago.
It has become Green Ubuntu, and can't find my 3G.

I have Salix 13.37 Ratpoison and KDE around here somewhere.
Just checked the size of Salix Mate-- 610MB.
I'll pass on that for now.
