The pet installer will add each executable to the menu
system. You will find the entries on the "Network" or "Internet"
menu heirarchy, depending on Puppy version you are using.

Create your own digipup.
Please follow these instructions to create your own Puppy with the W1HKJ ham software suite:
- Download the Precise-Puppy 5.7.1 iso image from Puppy Linux. If you cannot find that iso you may download it from this site
Please use this as a last resort as the file is very large. Precise Puppy 5.7.1
- Burn your CD using the instructions given on the puppy site.
- Reboot the computer from the Live Puppy CD
- Install the following "pet's" - if you are running Puppy you can
simply click on the link and the "petget" program will install the
program and all supporting files
Open the Rox viewer in the Home directory (the home icon on the
desktop). Click on "my-applications" and then "bin". You
should find the new executable items in this directory,
You can assign a nice 48x48 png image to each of the executables.
The executable files in the ~/my-applications/bin directory should now be shown with the icon images that you selected.
- open a 2nd instance of the Rox filer (click on the Home icon)
- in the 2nd Rox filer change directory to /usr/share/midi-icons
- this is the default directory that petget places the 48x48 images
- right click on one of the executables, fldigi for example
- select Set Icon... from the popup menu
- drag the icon, fldigi48.png from the /usr/share/midi-icons directory and drop it on the Set icon dialog box where indicated
- repeat for the other programs.
If you want to create a desktop item for each of these you can do so with a very simple step
XML files for fldigi rigCAT
- Drag the executable from the ~/my-applications/bin directory and
drop it on the desktop. That creates a link complete with a nice
icon image on the desktop that allows you to single click on it to
execute the program.
Open the ~/my-applications directory in your Rox filer.
Then click on the directory xmls (that was added when petget
installed fldigi). Click on xmlarchives.html; SeaMonkey should
open with the html file in view. Read and follow the instructions
All of the hamlib back ends are fully contained within the fldigi executable.
When everything is working as you expect you can either save your
changes to a file, back to the CD, or you might want to remaster the
ISO image. All of these are available either from the Puppy Menu
system or when you exit Puppy.
