Hi Backi:

It's a shame that 32bit seems to be getting phased out. Many individuals create so it's finding that hidden diamond among the rough. You may want to consider contributing by creating your own appimages of programs you have working under the 32bit platform. Appimage's website has create instructions there.

Kindest regards,

Hi Mike Walsh,

Stumbled upon ImageMagick.AppImage, discussed here with download link: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=980024#980024. From your previous posts about graphics, I thought it might interest you.

Thanks, Mike; we'll add it to the list!

I've tried ImageMagick before, but, like you, I do not feel 'comfortable' in the terminal. Must be a hang-over from my years & years of Windoze usage; I still prefer my GUIs.

I just couldn't get my head around the multitude of possible parameters that can be added to each command; after a wee while, it felt like my head was about to explode..!

But it's all 'grist for t'mill'.....and another we can add to the list of these AppImages that work for Puppy. So.....good catch!

Stumbled on this site. Don't know if its been mentioned yet. Looks like old 32-bit applications. Figured I'd better post it before staggering elsewhere: https://sourceforge.net/projects/portable/files/

Evening, all.

Following an update to the Telegram Instant Messenger this evening, it now crashes every time you attempt to launch the AppImage in Puppy.....with a 'segmentation' fault.

Reason? It no longer runs with ALSA, and now expects to find the full, standard PulseAudio package installed. So, unless you have an extremely pressing need for Telegram (which is, apparently, horribly insecure anyway), I think we can write this particular one off as 'untenable', since installing the full PulseAudio is a right royal PITA in Pup.

And it's not as though there aren't other options out there. Pidgin, Viber, Wire, Discord, Wickr, Slack, Retroshare (a new one, this), Tox, Ring.....there's been an explosion of IM apps this last year or two, though most are now 64-bit only, and have to be installed through package managers and PPAs, etc. Anyroad, I just thought I'd let you guys know.

Just a note that in his conscientious search of the web for things which may be of interest to the Puppy Community, labbe5 may have struck a motherload: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=988405#988405.

Hiya, Mike.

Thanks for the link to that.

I'm quite surprised at this. Last time I looked at this page (around 5 months ago) there were maybe 65-70 entries on it. A lot of these seem to be 'developer tools'.....but at least it shows devs are starting to take the format seriously.

I see there's even a 'converter' app for turning .deb packages into AppImages.....

Nice one!
