i would say it's definately to do with whatever driver you're using.... it works fine for me on my AMD and NVIDIA graphics computers, unfortunately i can't test on intel.

is it the same on precise and raring?

yes it's same on Precise and Raring. Do you have any old version Pet for Google earth like 6.2/6.0 which is compatible to Precise?

and it's working fine. Thanks a lot for all your help. Have a nice day.

Great job.

One suggestion. Somewhere, somehow, just put a little text next to each item saying what is going to happen when you press the button. Like - "Download and install pet", "Download SFS file", "Link to forum thread". etc. I think that would make it easier to use rather than pressing the button and wondering exactly is going to happen.

Hi dancytron,

If you hover over a button you should get a pop-up with information

So if we're running an older version and select update will the newer version be installed?

THanks

I've been away from Puppy for a while (too long really) and wondered what happened to QuickPet. Thanks for putting this together.
