Puppy has a few applications that have calendar/date organizers like Osmo or Notecase but I've taken a particular liking to RedNotebook as a way to organize day-to-day tasks.

The download in PPM for Quirky is not the latest and does not have all the Python dependencies in order to work properly in RU Xerus, so I am providing the latest 1.14 along with the files needed to make it run properly.

RedNotebook 1.14

The Brave Web Browser, which is Chromium based, is working quite well in RU Xerus64. It takes an extra second or two to open up but it seems to work flawlessly once running. Not sure if I like the way it handles tabs (it has a weird scroll over interface) but still it seems more stable than Iron so I'll probably be removing Iron and replacing.

For those that want to try it out and don't want to wait for a new version of RU Xerus, use the Debian/Ubuntu download from here:

https://brave.com/

Also, I'm going to be changing the kernel on the next version. Going to take a few baby steps backwards but for good reasons. It seems to have no negative affect.

After playing with Brave, I've decided to keep Iron as the only Chromium based browser, for now. Brave works okay but feels more like a Firefox derivative for some reason.

Anyway, keeping Iron for now...

For those that haven't seen this, VLC is available through the PPM and works well in RU Xerus. I've downloaded the individual packages and will be replacing Xine in the next version with VLC. Nothing wrong with Xine, VLC is just a preference.

Thanks to Iguleder and the thread listed below, I have the latest version of Chrome working in RU Xerus. A word of caution, it's not properly sandboxed but seems to work quite well.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=87024070&t=72667

I'm considering replacing Iron with Chrome in the next release. If someone can get the latest Iron working in RU Xerus, I may change my mind.

Makato recently brought Open Office (now Apache Office) back to my attention. I haven't used it in a while and certainly haven't used the latest. Works very, very well and much faster than Libre.

The only downside that I can see is that there does not seem to be support for .docx documents. Not sure where they've been for about the past 10 years but anyway, it's a solid and fast package.

Should work on RU Xerus and probably on Barry's Quirky Xerus. Version 4.1.3 which is the latest is packaged as a .pet below:

Thanks to Peasy Firewall Monitor and Plex, I can now stream from my computer to my Roku. I'm having some uploading issues but I'll be posting a link to the Plex pet that I packaged and some easy instructions as soon as I can get it uploaded....

The above link is for Plex Media Server packages for RU Xerus or it should work in Quirky Xerus. You should get 3 icons on your desktop. If for some reason they don't install, the scripts are in /root/my-applications/bin.

1. Launch in background (Plexconnect). Necessary for step 2.

2. Launch webpage (Plexman) console to add media, etc. Also, I recommend changing some of the default options like sharing your server..... No thanks Plex...

3. When ur done streaming, this is a shutdown - Plexkill. (shuts item 1 that will otherwise stay running in the background).

Install the Peasy Firewall Monitor. The 64 bit version is on page 3 or so of the following thread:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=945967#945967

Once installed, make sure you choose Build Firewall on Trusted LAN.

So, now you should have Plex running and your LAN open so your Roku can see. Now install the Plex channel on your Roku and start enjoying.

I just updated LibreOffice and turned off the annoying auto-update and auto-backup items by default. I dislike when programs start running in the background to update themselves or whatever.

The only thing that should update itself is Firefox (I think it's important to keep the browser updated) and it appears that OOTB, it will do a small update to itself.

Doing a final install and test. New upload coming very soon....

Quirky RU Xerus 3.28 now uploaded and available. Read page 1.
