Adobe Reader 9Posted 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.
SwiftfoxPosted on 04-Feb-2014
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-220.127.116.11 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.
Lazpaint-5.6Posted on 23-Jan-2014
I packaged this before I realised that it had already been packaged. Anyway, here is Lazpaint-5.6 very similar to Paint.NET although not in the same league as Gimp. There is more information on the Lazpaint wiki, including links to video tutorials on YouTube.
412 Collection UpdatePosted on 10-Jan-2014
You’ll be glad to know I have ditched Windows and I am back using Puppy 412 exclusively. As a committed Puppy user I knew I would not be able to put up with the grief of Windows for too long before returning to Puppy Linux.
Now that 412 Collection has my full attention once more I am presently giving the site a bit of a makeover that should be completed within the next week or two. While I’ve been away darry1966 has been very busy with his AnitaOS, check how busy over at his section on Sourceforge. I will include darry1966’s improvements for Puppy-412 here as well as more packages for Puppy 412.
412 Collection UpdatePosted on 12-Nov-2013
If you visit regularly looking for new additions then I apologise for this. Unfortunately I have had to use that other OS, Windows for the time being, the problem being I am unable to dual boot with Puppy 412 on my newish PC. Hopefully this will only be a temporary situation and will be resolved in the new year.
Sorry if this has caused any inconvenience.
GrafX2Posted on 2-Jul-2013
Came across Grafx2 on the forum and thought it looked interesting. GrafX2 is a bitmap paint program inspired by the Amiga program Deluxe Paint and has been ported to many platforms. It is used mainly for pixel art and there is lots of information and documentation on Google Code. You can also check out the forum thread.

'darry1966' has been pretty busy compiling pets of late and here is another one from him. Audacious Classic is an older version of the open source audio player.

Thanks to 'darry1966' (Murga forum name) for supplying this upgrade for Puppy-412. Downloading and installing these five files will update your Puppy-412 installation to allow it to run more up to date browsers and packages. See the forum posting for more info.
Puppy 412 NOP (Nearly Office Pup)Posted on 11-May-2013
Nearly Office Pup is an rather nice XFCE based puplet, so called because it is a no frills pup without office apps. The idea being that you install to USB pendrive and add an SFS file of the office package. Although it can be installed to HD if required.
