Subject description: Requires Perl, gtk2
 

Hi
I am looking for a open source collections manager for my stamps etc

Have found the following

GC Star http://www.gcstar.org/index.en.php

Requires the following dependencies

Perl
Gtk2
gtk2-perl

I am a Linux novice so do not know how to proceed. If someone can give me some instructions I would be grateful. If someone can make a pet even better.

hi linbie

gcstar is in the slacko package manager, but you will need to enable the slackware repos first

1. open the Puppy package manager (PPM) and click on the 'configure' button
2. tick the 3 slackware boxes (slacky/ slackware etc)
3. press ok then exit the PPM and restart it to enable the repos
5. type gcstar into the find box and install it and all it's dependencies using the 'examine dependencies option'

gcstar also needs some extra stuff to work,...
You'll need the 'devx' installed http://ftp.nluug.nl/ibiblio/distributions/puppylinux/puppy-5.3.1/devx_slacko_5.3.1.sfs
and also this .pet http://dl.dropbox.com/u/19554672/gcstardeps.pet (contains 'libsmbclient' and 'perl HTML')

good luck

Hello sir; Even downloading all dependancies from ubuntu repository, GC star does not start. Have you any solution for Ubuntu ?

I will try for Slacko from slackware.

hi pelo,

i'm presuming you're using precise puppy? Gcstar is a perl application , puppy has it's main perl modules in the DEVX , so install the devx and gcstar should work,
(as long as you got all the other deps from the PPM)

Well noticed : use DEVX ;
Thanks to you.
In fact none of the puppies run GCstar
It's a little bit ( a big bit ! ) ennoying to have to make a special distro only for GCstar !
For my own, i use it with Windows 7, but...
Available with Unbuntu too.
KDE makes it better with Tellico.

Subject description: available With LegacyOS mini
 

For me Tellico is the more user friendly. GCstar is not yet usable by Puppy
Look at our computers from our Youth: Oric Atmos !

Collection manager :Datacrow runs wth Puppy and JRE. See Musher0 forums

GCstar : I will try again, Byt I have already tried this pet.

No complains about GCstar ? We could include it In PPM, but In 5XX or Older.

Thanks for your help in making GCstar running with Puppy Linux.

IT could be only a sentence to change, no ?
Line 26 : what about UTF locale ? what is the opinion about That, Perhaps it's because it ignores FR as language.

Subject description: Stamp collection
 

The hardest is to find and install Tellico (KDE and QT needed). GCSTAR runs with Windows. Both are compatible and can exchange datas.
Tellico is installed on Legacy OS.
I never succeed in getting GCstar running Puppy. Or it would be too big, huge.
DEVX : yes. What is that ?
