package manager GUI

Post#1 by mtdew3q » 20 Mar 2014, 03:07

Hi-
porteus v3 rc2

I can't get ppm. Please let me know how to reset. Couldn't find ppmdefault with usm or slackyd. Can I download the package for the package manager with slackyd or usm? Not sure why because I had the package manager running at first maybe and now it is only cli. I read about missing requirements. I had a problem finding requirements for emacs. I had to install one package at a time for slackyd until emacs launched.

thanks

Please upgrade to the Porteus v3 final which contains a GUI for the package manager.

Hi-

Thanks for the really cool tip. v3 final sounds awesome! I will do it when my mifi data resets in 5 days.

I can't wait for instance to check out the note taking application http://basket.kde.org/‎
. I will try to build it from source, and I can install requirements from package manager.

thanks!
