dsl program installs
there are several ways to install programs to dsl
if you are connected to the internet you can use the desktop icon to browse the repository and download programs
you can also use the web browser .go here
browse the repository for programs and download the ones you like to /home dsl. find the download in emilfm and click it. then click the mydsl button in the center panel. done
you should see the program listed in the menu under mydsl, depending on the file you installed
alternatively with hard disk installs you can download and install synaptic and dsl dpkg and install some of the debian packages...although these are somewhat limited due to the small size of dsl
there are several kinds of extensions .dsl, tar.gz, uci.
.both .dsl and tar.gz install via the mydsl button...this is done as a regular user and NOT a super user
not sure about the unc extensions..I have not installed the new version yet
hope that helps a little
