Revision [19076]

Edited on 2011-10-23 18:13:46 by CrustyLobster [What about tech support?]
Additions:
and use //Menu / Desktop / Nathan Wallpaper setter//
In the enclosed browser (Seamonkey 2.4.1)
{{color fg="black" bg="yellow" text="Hey my Internet is not connected?"}}
Not using Ethernet?
Click on the connect icon
Follow the instructions
{{color fg="black" bg="yellow" text="Which browser should I use?"}}
Slacko has the Seamonkey browser built in, includes an HTML editor and Email client
Extra downloads include stable and Beta release Browsers
Firefox
Opera - small and efficient with email client
Chrome - still being optimised but cutting edge
{{color fg="black" bg="yellow" text="What extra software do I need?"}}
Probably none
Use Slickpet and Puppy Package manager for extra software
{{color fg="black" bg="yellow" text="Should I customise?"}}
Of course.
{{color fg="black" bg="yellow" text="Do I need java?"}}
Not usually but it is available in Slickpet
Most browsers already have javascript
(a different language)
{{color fg="black" bg="yellow" text="How do I compile and develop in Puppy?"}}
Use [[Devx]]. Go to SFS in Quickpet and click the button. Reboot.
You now have C, Bacon, Glade, Vala program languages and other development tools
{{color fg="black" bg="yellow" text="How do I know what programs I have installed?"}}
Use the package manager and notice the list of installed software
Be careful now - one click and they uninstall
{{color fg="black" bg="yellow" text="What is this Puppy called?"}}
It is called **Puppy 5.3** or "Slacko"
During development the name Spot and Slacko were used for development ISO releases
{{color fg="black" bg="yellow" text="Why does Puppy run as root?"}}
Convenience
Puppy users control their environment.
We are designed to load and run from USB or DVD (straight to desktop)
A root running live CD or DVD system remains MORE secure than an accessible and hackable hard disk install
We are not designed for multi-user deployment.
You can use GROWL for security tightening options
{{color fg="black" bg="yellow" text="So technically, Puppy is dangerous?"}}
Very. We bypass network security and firewalls
We can repair and edit other operating systems files such as Windows 7
bypassing administrator limitations
Recommended by security agencies as unhackable when running from DVD
Programs on the CD/DVD are never compromised.
With Puppy, comes great potential
in a small package
{{color fg="black" bg="yellow" text="What about tech support?"}}
Try us.
Puppy users are loyal because our forums, wikis, IRC,
blogs and web sites are constantly friendly, updated and improved
{{color fg="black" bg="yellow" text="What about Thumbnails?"}}
Thumbnails are turned off for speedy default. To turn them on:
Right-Click on an icon and choose Rox-Filer -> Options -> Thumbnails -> #%click box#% show image thumbnails
