All you have to do is to put the modules in the /porteus/modules folder to be able to access your programs at each bootup of the computer. Or you can store the modules in another folder like /porteus/optional folder, and activate them as needed by cliking on them and using the activate submenu. In the same way you can use the deactivate command to remove the module from the setup.

You will fetch new packages or modules which are not on your system with usm package manager. there are also other ways to build modules, but not as easy.

The simplest and immediate soltion is to double click on your module. This will inject it into the file system and you ca use it. To uninstall, just double click on it again.

To be sure you have all the dependencies required for your program, search for it and install it using USM.
