Do you mean making pie from scratch or buying ready-made cooked pie? I can't even make Kraft Dinner! Laughing
Poor thing! You must be just skin and bones, eh?! Laughing

I mean: simple as eating a piece of already cooked blueberry or apple or
cherry or lemon or meringue pie, put on the table in front of you by a
friendly waitress in a lovely little china plate decorated with some flowery
pattern, with a fork. Very Happy

Puppy has too much choice in some sections (graphics) and not enough in others (video playing and management of collections). It's a pity some Puppies have to use again Gxine to be able to play DVDs.
These apps are no longer tested before release. As users (thousands still use their computers to play CDs or DVDs, mostly children before going to bed).
CD burning is used by our colleagues, even by famous Puppy makers.
With Mistfire, we hardly found an application able to play DVDs..

I'd like to see tree incorporated into ROX-filer's right-click menu. At least, how about a .pet that does that?

Thanks Flash - I hadn't seen mushers tree thread so i have now added that to my watchlist. If we are lucky don570 may come up with a rightclick menu for tree (if not already incorporated in one of his rightclick menus...).

What version of Puppy would you be wanting a pet for?

A stand-alone puppy PDF reader (only). Theres a few converters/joiners, but no reader-only. If the pupPDFReader taps /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF that would be a plus.

This is in Puppy, (Maybe Pemasu selected it) never even thought about it, because all the pdfs just open automatically and look fine.

I've been using Quirky Werewolf 64-bit, but not for any particular reason except that it meets most of my needs. Xine is no good; it creates zombies. How many different .pets would it take to cover all versions of Puppy?

That I do not know. "Tree" seems pretty basic so maybe only one or two pets should cover it - although I must confess that I don't know how "quirky" Quirky actually is - it might need a different pet.

Looks like Musher has the tree pets under control though.

I think two might do it: one for 32-bit Puppies and one for 64-bit Puppies.
