    klik: point-and-klik software store for Knoppix

    klik allows you to install software by just klicking a button on the "point-and-klik software store".

    klik is the easiest way to install software on Knoppix, even while running from CD. With a persistent home directory, you can even continue to use the software you installed after a reboot. Because one software package is always exactly just one directory within ~/, you can always delete software packages without any problems for other software.

    Try it yourself: http://klik.sf.net/

    Hey, it happened!

    Nice work

    Maybe if you release the format people can make other ones, e.g. for nvidia or what have you.. would have a lot of questions here thats for sure!

    eadz, great to have you as my first user! Nice to hear that it worked well.

    Once things are tested thoroughly and working as I expect, there will be an easy interface for people to add their own applications. Basically I am thinking of a central database to store the install "recipes". Kinda "poor mans apt-get"

    In the meantime, stay tuned for more...

    Outstanding! I'm looking forward to giving this a try. Putting this all on a web page is deffinately the way to go. This should be complemented by the additions to Knoppix 3.4

    - Experiments with an overlay file system to allow easier on-the-fly
    installations of new software and possibly eliminating the need of a
    separate /ramdisk virtual partition.
    This is from http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtop...t=7162&start=0

    Thanks again.

    Great news. The overlay filesystem will make life much easier for klik. I hope many applications will be released this way.

    Hey, the Knoppix community is blazing fast

    klik is out for just a few hours now, and is already linked in Japan... wow
    http://buxus.s31.xrea.com:8080/pukiw...official%5D%5D

    The guys there even figured out some glitches with the latest Knoppix releases I will look into soon. In the meantime, please use KNOPPIX_V3.3-2003-11-19 if you run into problems (NOT newer).

    Please post your results here!

    Ok, I've now tried Klik and it works great. I just used it to install Real 8 onto a live session using the CD. One suggestion: maybe click should put all installed programs under one directory in /home/usr. Putting them all in /home/usr/klik_apps or something like that would keep things a little neater. I'm looking forward to trying it out more. Can we submit klik recipies?

    Of course you will be able to submit klik recipes. Right now, I am refining the format. It is my goal to make the recipes as generic as possible so that the developer of the recipe has little more to do than to insert some variables, such as the application name and the download locations. I will keep you updated.

    Please do as this is quite cool. I've now installed Jap, Real8, and Smbk4. After you feel comfortable with your refinements, it would be nice to submit Klik to Klaus so it could be included in Knoppix.

    Any chance to make it work with other Browsers?

    E.g.
    Opera,
    Mozilla,
    Firebird

    Thanks,
