PostPosted: Sun 21 Oct 2012, 03:43    Post subject: Searching for Bibles  

Hi,

I have been searching for a good free Bible software. Bible time is nice but my problem is I find it hard to to do any under line, or highlights whenever i come across verses that i am inspired or i think important.

Or, is there some way that Bibletimes allows readers to underline or make highlights that i do not know of?

Really appreciate if the developer can consider adding this important features so that I can make good use of my laptop for reading (studying) Bibles instead of just using my normal paper Bible.

In another post, "the word" was suggested. The word is good but it only works under wine so it will not load as fast as a Bible software made to run under linux (puppy linux).

Thanks

Sorry, as far as I know, Bibletime does not support that feature. IMO, theWord is your best choice for that feature. On my hardware, I find that theWord loads and runs under Wine in puppy faster than it does under it's native MS Windows. Which pup are you using, some are much faster than others? For example if your hardware is 64 bit, LHP will be releasing an updated 64 bit version shortly that has a simple installation of TheWord and is very fast.

EDIT: TaZoC has released his final Lighthouse 64 5.15F. It has an installation program for theWord that works fine.

Regards,
Jim

PostPosted: Tue 23 Oct 2012, 14:10    Post subject:  Precise Puppy 5.4  

Barry's latest release is working great with Bibletime and is one of the few that runs Xiphos which is installed from the Ubuntu repositories using the PPM. It's a great base for your Bible study since along with Bibletime you can install Xiphos for a fine system using only free linux software. This PPM does not include Bibletime, however, pemasu's Bibletime available here works great.

Barry's Release Notes wrote:
Precise Puppy is built from Ubuntu Precise Pangolin 12.04.1+ binary DEB packages, hence has binary compatibility with Ubuntu and access to the vast Ubuntu package repository. Couple that with Puppy's tiny size, speed and ease-of-use, and this is one incredible pup!

This is the very first release of Precise Puppy. It is assigned version 5.4 to indicate it's position relative to the other puppies, such as Wary 5.3 and Slacko 5.3.3 (5.4 coming soon).

A lot of work has happened at the "Woof-level" since the release of Wary 5.3 in April 2012 -- of particular importance to Precise are the many enhancements to the Puppy Package Manager (PPM). At the "Precise-level" there has been a very long period of testing and refinement, over several months.

As Ubuntu Precise Pangolin is a 5-year Long Term Supported release, we expect that Precise Puppy will be also.


Cheers,
Jim

@All

The recent update of Bibletime 2.9.2 has fixed numerous bugs including one that eliminated text from Ubuntu Raring compatible pups. I've requested some developers to consider an update package to Bibletime 2.9.2 for their pups.

Regards,
Jim

Give it a try.

PostPosted: Sun 16 Feb 2014, 14:43    Post subject: Quirky Tahr 6.05  

Bibletime works great on Barry's latest Quirky Tahr.

Barry wrote:
Quirky6 is intended to be as small as possible (hence compiled from source in T2), very fast, very simple, and optimised to run on Flash memory media. Yes, yes, all those things, but the real distinguishing features are three, firstly the very eclectic set of goals (see list below), secondly the thorough recovery/backup/upgrade mechanisms, and thirdly the optmisation to run as a "full installation" -- the latter needs to be appreciated in relation to Puppy Linux. There are other extended ideas that are in the pipeline.

I have it installed on a flash drive and find that it works great and is exceptionally fast. It does require the whole partition or drive. Bibletime is installed by clicking on the install icon which runs the Quirky Package Manager. Be sure to first configure the package manager, otherwise your search may not find Bibletime and even if it is found it probably will not install.

Thank you Barry,
Jim

are pleased to announce the release of Fatdog 630 Final.
This release marks the fourth, and probably last, release of the Fatdog 600 series and comes with a lot of improvements over the last release, Fatdog64-621.


Bibletime 2.9.1 has not been updated to version 2.9.2, however it runs great on the latest Fatdog64. Give it a try, it's installed using the Fatdog64 Package Manager in the Fatdog64 Control Panel. Thank you Kirk and James for another fine distribution.

Regards,
Jim

PostPosted: Wed 26 Mar 2014, 10:39    Post subject:  Bibletime 2.10.0  

James and Kirk have compiled the latest Bibletime 2.10.0 for use with their outstanding Fatdog64-630 Operating System. Presently it's not available in the Package Manager, however it is in their pet repository.

Note: The Fatdog64-630 Bibletime 2.10.0 update also works on Slacko64 - 64 bit Puppy version alpha 5.8.8.

Thanks again to James and Kirk for their continued support of Bibletime in their OS.

Regards,
Jim

Fatdog64's latest Bibletime 2.10.0, above, also works great on Mick's Slacko64. The attached screenshot also shows radky's FbBox which is a fine addition and is available for both 32 and 64 bit OS. Slacko64, although still an alpha version looks good and is working fine on my hardware.

Regards,
Jim
