More packages for Quirky

April 30, 2010 — BarryK
Lobster commented that the 'puppy-quirky' repository is rather bare. Yes. I do hope to add some more packages soon.

Ttuuxxx has made a start here:

...I hope to upload some of ttuuxxx's PETs to the 'puppy-quirky' repo.

There was a doubt about the Gimp package that ttuuxxx compiled. Well, that was awhile ago, perhaps something has changed in Quirky that is causing a problem. Anyway, I have compiled Gimp 2.6.8 and uploaded to 'puppy-quirky' repo. This will be listed in the Puppy Package Manager with the next release of Quirky.

01micko has created an SFS of Skype. I haven't yet tested it in Quirky, but have uploaded it to:

...well, not quite. As I type this it is still uploading.

I'll bung a couple more SFSs there.

"01550"'snap2 for Quirky"lstandish"Please consider adding snap2 rotating snapshot backup program to Quirky. It uses rsync for the backup "engine" and is very powerful and easy to use, with a optional gtkdialog GUI. It is now stable/tested.

It won't get into Quirky 1.0, that's now frozen, but will consider for later release. Username: 4 May 2010, 17:36
