Thank you, Bigpup, I agree and have found this to be an issue, too, even if I've not been great at it myself when asking for help. Laughing

Regards...

X'mas Bigpup, thank you for your help, I've made up my USB with language pack installed for puppy boot. But I haven't download the language .pet module for Slacko but instead a smaller .pet ~ 10M to tune my language. Thank you very much for all your advices. Merry Christmas to all.

Two additions to Bigpup's advice:

1) Take a deep breath and calm down. Your explanations will be a lot clearer if you are not panicking.

2) Some clue as to your ability with Linux and/or computers will help us target our replies more appropriately.

Another addition to Bigpup's advice:

If you talk about a language package say which one.
Nobody can guess your language, even if your Location is empty or anything funny like "between screen and chair"

Sorry 'wellminded.com puppy pupsearch.html' does not exist or is not available.

Maybe my ISP Windstream is at fault is all I can figure.

Edit: Some more gems found by me. I don't know if I posted them or can give credit to the threads or sites I found them from also. I fi
nd these things and forget where I got them from. Sorry.
