Puppy Installation

22 January 2015
Create your own digipup.

Please follow these instructions to create your own Puppy with the W1HKJ ham software suite:
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.

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, /root/my-applications/bin.  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.

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

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 contained therein.


All of the hamlib back ends are fully contained within the fldigi executable.

Final Installation

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.
