Additions:
- When a package is installed via the puppy Package Manager, sometimes at the end of the installation the manager will check for required dependencies and let you know what is missing,
- Also, via Menu>setup>check dependencies installed pkg, you can choose from a list, any program you have tried to install and clicking the check dependencies button will check for what is missing.
- If none of these are successful a more involved way is to use menu>filesystem>pfind file finder, to do a search through your computer to find the executable file that initiates the program. Navigate to that directory and open a terminal. (right click in the directory and select window>terminal here, to get a terminal, relative to that directory) then type ./ and the name of the executable file. If all goes well the program will try to start, and results of each step will show in the terminal. When it gets to a missing dependency it will stop and let you know what it could not find, eg: libxyz.so.0 . There may also be a path to where it should be, or some information which may help you do an internet search for the missing file. It may be in a .rpm or .deb from other linux system repositories, or it may be part of another package. Install it. Then ./ and the program executable again. If it was successful it will run the installation and pass onto other steps. If it comes up again, that was not the right file or it got installed in the wrong place. Uninstall it so as to not clog your system with junk. Use the puppy package manager uninstall button to locate and uninstall it. Then try again. some programs have few missing dependencies, and other a lot. Perseverance is the key. One happy moment will hopefully occur, when you have all of them installed the program will open and run. (go celebrate)

Additions:
~Software is the instructions or code that runs the operating system (Puppy Linux) and applications (AKA application programs or apps). Examples of application programs would include an accounts package or a CAD program.
~Puppy Linux like most versions of Linux come with a lot of built in programs. The easiest way to add more is either a self installing file such as a [[PET]], or by using a package manger such as [[PPM]].
==Precautions==
~Most software comes with a [[SoftwareDisclaimer disclaimer]], usually stating something along the lines of:
~~Absolutely no warranty given or implied, so use any software package entirely at your own risk.
~system [[backup]]: **//always have multiple copies of your current operating system __before__ installing any package to it//**
~official software packages are available via the [[ppm Puppy Package Manager]]:

~~using the command-line interface:%%ppm%%
~un-official software packages are available from repositories such as: [[http://murga-linux.com/puppy/index.php?f=63 murga-linux.com]]
~there are three main software package types, identified by their file extension:
~~**//.txz//** (intended for full and frugal installations)
