Tutorials and Tips for new Puppys
You will find Puppy mentioned here in an imaginary debate
about the best linux distribution of them all
Luckily you have already found it for real and Puppy is its name
Our best tutorials IMO are here:
They run as flash "movies" using the wink system
Running these wink progs, will get you up to Puppy speed
(the original Puppy dog - our mascot - was a fast runner)
Here are some other tips:
- at the top of the beginners section are two "stickies"
Have you read them? "Flash" (he works with lights)
has provided some wonderful links . . .
GuestToo would always recommend getting a 3 button mouse for Linux
I got one (a wheel mouse in fact) and have only just
realised how important this is . . .
In Puppy Tardis 1.0.7 (only in xorg not xvesa What are xorg and xvesa? Very basically two methods of display
) the third mouse button is simulated by clicking both buttons together (this can be done in most linux)
Why is the 3rd button so important? Cut and paste!
If you highlight in one program -Left click on a new location
and middle click - the data is copied.
Once learnt it becomes indespensible . . .
My next tip is for newbies and it will come as a great shock:
You are no longer helpless. You have probably come as refugees
from the evil empire of Dath Gates. This is the dark side of the force.
Promising "power" at a price.
As you now begin your Linux Jedi training under Tux Yoda
- you must always remember to trust the force
- oh that and the rute guide
here is Jedi Master "wikipedia" with links and an intro
and how about this from Bruno:
If sound is working try these podcasts
(we call them pawedcasts - yep being cute is fun)
Soon you may even decide to take a 24 hour course in shell
