View Full Version : Open .deb With Puppy/Slacko?

17-04-2016, 03:53 PM
I've been trying to find DROPBOX for Linux, and I can get it if I re-compile (so they say) by downloading a .deb version.

How's that gonna work? I don't believe that I can open a Debian package in Puppy, which I believe can do Ubuntu and Linux stuff only.

What I found was that these are what Puppy can work with:

Slacko Puppy 6.3.0

modprobe, cat, cp, gzip, gunzip, losetup, ls, mkdir, mv, rm, sed, sort, tar, wget, date, find, grep, fgrep and egrep.

If this is OK, which one of them should I use?

You need a deb to pet utility or look at slackware builds for dropbox or build it from source or use a distro that gets the love, deb or rpm based.

Dropbox thread on puppy forums.
Several options there Joe.

Thanks Dave, appreciate it.

I just think if it's Linux, all extensions should be runnable on all platforms. But not on Windows, of course! One has to have some personal pride and scruple.
