Hi,
I am new to Puppy and just installed slacko 5.3.3. Everything seems to work ok and Thanks to info in the forum I managed to get my HP C5180 printer to work..
The challenge is with Seamonkey. Once you start the browser you get a message that this is an outdated version and in the window you can click on the a button to start the install of a new or newest version of the browser. Once clicked, nothing happens.
Other issue is that Slacko notifies you that there is a problem with flash. Once you confirm you want to update, a message pops up that there is no connection with the server.
As a possible solution, I disabled the firewall, without result however.

Any help/idea is appreciated.
Thanks..

The latest version of Flash Player 10 is uploaded (by BarryK I think) here:-

http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-common/flashplayer10-10.3.183.23.pet

One way of updating Seamonkey in Slacko 5.3.3 is:-

Download the latest Seamonkey Linux version (tarball) from:-
http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases
You can even select your preferred language version.
Make sure you know where you saved the tarball.

Delete the folder (and all contents) /usr/lib/seamonkey (this removes the old version).

Click on the tarball to extract it and specify the extract location as /usr/lib
This places a new seamonkey folder in place of the old one.

Start Seamonkey to check that it works and you can then delete the tarball.

I had the same problem too when I first used Puppy, but as I didn't want to use Seamonkey anyway, I ended up just removing it with the "remove inbuilt packages" utility and installed Firefox instead.

I already mentioned this in the feedback thread (and I notice a couple of other people have too), but I don't understand why a difficult (for beginners) to update version of SeaMonkey is the default broswer in the latest official Puppy release.

For most newbies, connecting to the internet will probably be the first thing they want to do, but they'll immediately be faced with this problem of receiving a warning message about an out of date browser and the inability to update it.

As Puppys aims to be an easier to use Linux distro, I think a more standard browser (Firefox, Chrome, Opera) that can be updated with a single click would be a better option.

Hi Liro,

I agree with you.
