Extract a Puppy pet package

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Extract a Puppy pet package

Post#1 by don570 » 28 Jun 2012, 23:37

Extract a Puppy pet package

edit: NEW VERSION 1.5 WILL EXTRACT RPM PACKAGES
Also supports dragging a package to field in script window
which is possible in Trinty version of Porteus. This feature
doesn't work in XFCE version :x

edit: NEW VERSION 1.2 WILL EXTRACT DEBIAN PACKAGES
AND XZM MODULES

Available --->

There may be a need to open a puppy pet package to
get the app or library inside.

I wrote a gtkdialog script to extract the pet package
to a folder nearby.

Instructions : open from start menu and select a pet package
( a .pet extension) and a folder is created with the contents of
the pet package inside. You can then try to make a
porteus module out of the folder, but usually
changes will be necessary.

Posted after 5 days 6 hours 10 minutes 52 seconds:
New version 1.2

Improvements

Now will extract debian packages and xzm modules.

I find it very useful in making modules from other platforms

I noticed a bug. While I was trying to construct an
Audacity 2.0.1 XZM module using Thunar file manager
I noticed that while extracting a pet package that
the desktop file wouldn't extract and be created properly. It was empty of
any text or there would be damage to it. I blame this on
Thunar file manager because
when I used Trinity version of porteus I didn't have this problem
and I was able to extract properly and make the module successfully.

Version 1.5 now supports extracting rpm packages
as well as the usual .pet .xzm .deb


.. and in Trinity version of Porteus you can now drag a package to field
in script.

I only tested it on one package I had so tell me if it works okay.

Would you please upload this file into mediafire, unfortunately this website is filtered in my country :sorry:
I am really surprised to see that even it can convert pet files into xzm. it is really fantastic!! :wink:
All these, I can not bear to witness any longer. Can not the kingdom of salvation take me home?

It converts the package into a folder. You then make modifications
like the desktop file . Then you can use the builtin scripts to
make a XZM module.
