Lighthouse logoFinding Packaged Software

You may find many foreign packages (Arch/Debian/Ubuntu) that work, however many will not. Begin with the Update icon on the desktop, then use the Install icon for more 64-bit applications via the Lighthouse website or PPM (Puppy Package Manager.) PPM can access Slackware 64, Slacky 64 and Salix 64 repositories.

After you launch the Puppy Package Manager, click on Configure package manager, and then Update now. This will download the package list. Then you can choose the package you want to install. You can also uninstall pet packages using the Puppy Package Manager.

If you cannot find the package you need, you’ll probably need to load the Devx SFS and compile that package from source.
