Thanks! It took an embarassingly long time after I ran across Nvu before I managed to search properly and find the dotpup.

Some Linux n00b questions:

* I didn't end up with an icon in the menu, at least not that I could find. Is this normal? (I'm running 1.0.6)

* There are two scripts in /usr/local/nvu-1.0 that look like the one I should run: nvu, and start-NVU. Looking at them, I think start-NVU is the one I'm supposed to use, and it seems to work (so I've dragged it to the desktop and set its icon). Was this correct?

* Before I found your post, I tried some ham-fisted installation using the Linspire tarball and the "without KDE" .rpm on the Nvu download page. I've ended up with a bunch of files that show up in gtkfind (several files in /root/.packages/ and /root/.nvu). However, I can't find those files with Rox to get rid of them. What am I doing wrong?

Do other Dotpups add entries?
Maybe you must restart JWM (orr whatever Desktop you use).
If that does not work, I had to rebuild the Dotpup.

Yes Smile

Folders beginning with a point are hidden.
Click on the "show hidden"-icon in Rox.
/root/.nvu contains your personal NVU-settings.

It is pretty normal.
(for those installing ensure you get a message saying do you want to remove the .pup - for the library and the NVU installer also has an end message about restarting x - that is xwindows)

I am using SimplePup and you add the start-NVU (that is the right one) and the icon to the add menu option - which is simple enough to use
the one in /usr/local/nvu-1.0
is the one to use

Smile

Clicking and dragging the icon? Correct - yes and it runs the file

As for removing files - you can leave them or turn them visible with right click on a rox window
display / show hidden
(this might be sligtly different on 1.0.6 - but you should find it)

NVU is actually better for beginners than the bloatware Dreamweaver is turning into (Dreamweaver is great for pros of course - MS has announced a new rival to Dreamweaver - so that might inspire them)
Nvu is much better than composer (which is meant to eventually get back the NVU code. It is one of the projects sponsored by Linspire - a commercial Linux.

My style and subject matter is a little unusual . . .
Here are two sites

Dreamweaver

Nvu in Puppy
http://www.zen45800.zen.co.uk/tmxx/dido.html

Puppy seems to be fiercely independent of commercials and commercial interests. It is one of the things that attracted me

Ubuntu and Redhat are other examples of commercial Linux. They are both excellent in their way but not right for me . . .
