My needs are fairly simple: A web browser;I like Pale Moon, a pdf reader I can copy text from like Foxit Reader and a spreadsheet program that doesn't crash X.
I intend the dvd to be self contained and have all the programs and any files on the disk.
I have previously had issues with using sfs files on live cd.
Any suggestions on how to proceed and what puppy to use.
I have already used several disks messing around with this and it would be good to have something that actually works.
My computer can handle either a 64 or 32 bit distro

Hi RickGT351,

"I want to make a live cd for use with banking... A web browser;I like Pale Moon, a pdf reader I can copy text from like Foxit Reader and a spreadsheet program that doesn't crash X."

Take a look at both of these:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=96964

or

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=813562#813562


Both were designed to run from a CD/DVD. Both have methods for adding applications not included by their Devs. Banksy is based on Slacko 5.6 and can use any app which will run under Slacko 5.6, 5.7.

Puli is now based on Tahrpup 6.0.5.

You shouldn't have any difficulty finding any category of application for either of them.

1. See THIS POST offering "a new version of the banksy3 impersonator".
This is what I used to burn a CD-RW disk that I have used for online banking since I made it in April 2016.
It has always worked flawlessly.
The particular thing to notice about this "impersonator" version of Banksy3, is:
You can include any number of personalizations, provided they are all included during one personalization session.
I've never needed to change mine since I did them.
Although it would be possible to complete a new different or greater set of personalizations to make a new iso and CD.
Hence, you could make multiple disks, each with a different set of personalizations [for differing specific purposes?]

2. I also tried Puli, and liked it, BUT...
Decided to use Banksy3 impersonator instead...
I found Puli rather too complex for my level of ability.

Thanks guys. I am using Banksy and find it very useful. Had to install a new browser as my bank website did not like the one on the distro

Hi Sylvander,

g/g and RickGT351 explain how to from here down: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=974122#974122,

I'd go with fredx181's firefox-quantum portable. http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=978010#978010. Since it's already a portable, you could place it anywhere. And I've noticed some sites will only accept firefox or google-chrome.

Now installed an additional web-browser to Banksy3.
See from this post down...to THIS.
An updated version of Banksy3 has now been released by greengeek that is capable of adding new personalizations [known as "impersonations"].
