Puppy 415

Posted on 06-Aug-2014

FL Burn‘mikeb’ (forum name) has put together a rather nice XFCE puplet using Puppy-412 as a base Pup_415_v2.2.1.iso. It includes Gimp-2.4.6 and a very nice Dropbox GUI plus other goodies. Download, burn and enjoy.

Website Update

Posted on 03-Aug-2014

I said previously that "I will no longer be maintaining 412 Collection" but I have have had a change of heart and will continue with the 412 Collection. I have changed a few things, firstly I have changed the guestbook to a more up to date comment system (link at the top of each page) that visitors may find a better option, especially if visitors would like to ask questions.

Lastly I have included a link to the improved Puppy Linux Search Engine in the right hand column that I have set up after the demise of wellminded.com.

FL Burn

Posted on 07-May-2014

FL Burn 'darry1966' has been pretty busy again compiling pets and here is a CD Burner from him. FL Burn is very simple and is good with ISO's and works well with older Pups and very good on extremely low ram hardware.

Thunderbird 12

Thunderbird 12 There was a request for Thunderbird-12 on the forum but this particular version did not seem to be available so here it is. Although I prefer to use webmail myself but Thunderbird is an excellent choice of email client.

Wellminded Search

Posted on 21-Mar-2014

With the www.wellminded.com website being down for some time now with no sign of it reappearing although the Google Custom Search still exists. I have included it as part of 412 Collection so Puppy Linux users can have somewhere to access this well used Puppy Linux Search. I have also included a link (right hand column) on the main navigation to it from each page

Adobe Reader 9

Posted on 09-Mar-2014

Adobe Acrobat Reader 9, while not exactly what you could call Puppy friendly weighing in at a hefty 58mb and may not be for everyone although you can have more than one PDF opened at the same time and has tabs for all opend documents. Although if you are using a more up to date hardware you will find it very good. According to Adobe you should have a 1.3-GHz processor or higher, 512 MB of RAM and 985 MB of available hard-disk space.

Swiftfox

Posted on 04-Feb-2014

Swiftfox Browser I have noticed from this sites web stats that by far the most popular browser in use by visitors is Firefox 2.xx I would recommend that visitors using this older version of Firefox to upgrade to Swiftfox-3.6 (external link), a version of Firefox optimised for Linux and get a superior browser.

I briefly tried Firefox-2.0.0.7 from the P4 repository and it loaded pages fairly slowly. Although Swiftfox is no longer available from the above link although I had a copy from a while back and I have packaged it to give it a spin and I did noticed a speed improvement using Swiftfox-3.6.13.pet over the older version.
