All about K-Meleon under Linux using wine.
[quote=Fred] For people who are interested in Puppy Linux, a variation that works with recent netbooks would be Icepuppy 0.14 . Size 236Mb, Kernel 2.6.38. This Puppy variation is a quite complete live distro. http://smokey01.com/pemasu/IcePuppy-014/icepuppy-014.iso To create a bootable USB stick with a live Linux distro Windows users can use for example Unetbootin. http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/unetbootin-windows-latest.exe Although Puppy Linux works by default always as root, there is a user "spot" preconfigured. You can always start an application as user spot, starting it in a console owned by user spot. To open such a console, click on the "console" icon on the desktop, and type into the root console xterm -e su spot This will open a console used by user spot. Into this console type, for example wine /opt/K-Meleon/k-meleon.exe if this would be the correct path where your k-meleon.exe is, to start K-Meleon as user spot. Personally I think, that all apps going to the internet should be started as user spot, as it is the case for browsers and music players for streamed media, although the vast majority of Puppy users consider the security risk as root to be very small. You can also create icons which start an app as user spot, writing a shell script, for example KM.sh, containing the line xterm -e su spot -c 'wine /opt/K-Meleon/k-meleon.exe' (use your correct path to k-meleon.exe here) Make the shell script executable and drag the shell script icon from the ROX file manager to the desktop. You can also edit the start menu using the command from the shell script. Wine can be installed downloading http://openlab.jp/puppylinux/download/packages-stray/himajin/wine-1.3.2-i486.pet Click on the downloaded file in ROX filer as root to install it. (Downloading Gecko, when asked, is not necessary.) You can save your system changes on the USB stick automatically when asked about it at system shutdown. Fred[/quote]
