Sub_title: How to activate unrpm
 

I am new to Puppy Linux and trying to download packages. Every time I do it I get an error message indicating to install unrpm.pup. But I checked in My-applications/bin and unrpm is there. How can I activate it? Thank you.

You have to place in the rpm directory and open a terminal (In Rox, open the dir with the rpm inside, right click on an empty area and choose Window > Terminal Here to open urxvt).
Then, just write this and hit enter:
Code:
unrpm thePackageName.rpm
. Replace 'thePackageName.rpm' with the real name and you'll extract the content of that package to the same directory (as if it were a tar.gz).

Note that you can't install rpm on the same way that you install .debs packages.

Hope this helps.

But sometimes unrpm fails.
I actually found a command which succeeded when unrpm failed a few weeks back... but I can't find it now Sad

Is My-applications/bin still in the path these days? If you run `unrpm` in a terminal, what happens?
