Subject description: I Have Installed XenialDog32 OS - OpenBox Desktop?
 

Hello,

I am working with a version of what I thought was XenialDog 32-bit,
which has an unusual desktop. It's called either 'Openbox' or 'Casper',
and when it boots, the menu shows that it uses something
called 'Porteus'.

In any case, when I tried to install a pet called "update_flash-1.8,"
there was an error message in a dialogue box titled "pet2sfs" and
the message referred to something called "DebianDog."

What is "DebianDog?" Is this the same as XenialDog? Why won't
the pet package load?

Thanks in advance. Screen shot below.

The Dogs are not Pups. They are specially crafted Debian Live systems made to have the small size (and to some extent) the look and feel and functionality (in terms of frugal install and sfs handling, run-from-RAM-capability and more) of Pups. They are however fully Debian/Ubuntu compatible and thus use Debian package management system (.deb debian packages via full dependency resolving dpkg/apt package manager system) and not Puppy pet packages.

A bit confusing for some, I suppose, to have these several Dogs in Puppy forum, but they are inspired to some (limited) extent by Pups and some of the many utilities developed for use on the Dogs can also be used in Pups (and vice-versa). But if you really want to use Pup version of Xenial (rather than the fully Debian/Ubuntu-compatible Dog) then yes you have installed the 'wrong' distro! Wink You just need to look around the forum 'Projects' area and you should come across XenialPup. Alternatively, you can access/download XenialPup via puppylinux.com website:

EDIT: On the other hand, if you want to learn more about running/maintaining your existing XenialDog system, you can find some pointers (and download links) about all the Dogs (not Pups) more generally at the Dog website:
