@paule :

pet maker ? what are you trying todo ? convert directory, or any other? if directory to convert the answer is dir2pet, if anything else and you dont have any directory to convert, its was useless.

if you trying to install sfs (must same version with puppy), all you need just klik on sfs and it will be mounted, then you can try copyed them to root (/) not /root.

if u use sfs deferent then macpup, u can use other puppy to open then copy to the directory . the rest is same as above.


I am trying to Install OxygenOfficePro301.sfs. I can easily install it in puppy 4.2.1, but the same utilities which work in puppy 4.3 do not work with MacPup Foxy 3. I am hoping to use Oxygen Office as it has a number of templates which are not available in the regular Open Office 3.. When I click on an .sfs it is not mounted, and I get an error message saying it is of the wrong type. Unfortunately all of the utilities available to convert it to the correct version also do not work in MacPup Foxy 3. It appears that something in MacPup causes utilities which work in normal puppy 4.3 not to work.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

cheers, Paul

why u just try open on 421 first and mounting. then copyed to a new directory. after that ucan chose to make it pet with dir2pet, or let as directory, so u can manualy copy to root folder on macpup.

I picked up the OxygenOfficePro301 sfs file in the thread a while back when the links were maintained. As I understand it the original poster is tied up with other things right now.

Any thoughts on how ttuuxxx's build differs from the regular 4.3? How do the differences affect the utilities mentioned above?

cheers, Paul

Hi Pri,

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately this utility doesn't work either. When you right click on the .sfs file to install it, you get a cannot mount error.

cheers, Paul

Your running a full install right? Try booting up the live cd and run it in ram .Then try mounting the .sfs and see what happens.

Just to let everyone know Skype works really well in Fox 3 .I had a little chat with Sneekylinux today was very cool . I used the skype_static 2.1.0.47.pet from the puppylinux.ca site,its under bugs. After you install it open the asla mixer under multimedia and turn up the mic volume first.

I tried Macpup Foxy out last night and I must say I'm impressed. I got a few themes today so I will be trying them out and seeing what else this puppy can do. Thanks to all involved with its construction! Very Happy
