William Mcewan streamlined Pet

Download from here The mini above is the recommended download
now includes the GConf and the orbit2 dotpets - install those first - (download by clicking on them - click on the file to run)
then Gizmo-project.pet
William tried charnisingh's gizmo-project dotpet
as described here but
noticed that the binaries hadn't been stripped and that there was
some redundancy in the packaging. Removing that redundancy has resulted
in a considerably smaller gizmo-project dotpet with identical functionality

gizmo ending with libstdc++5 can be used in puppy 3 as puppy 3 has
libstdc++5
gizmo ending with libstdc++6 can be used in puppy 4 in fact puppy 4 has both of libstdc++5 and libstdc++6
the names are original pkg names of the Gizmo-project but it does not mean it contains these libs.

The gizmo dotpet was built from scratch using the generic
Linux tar.gz download from the gizmo-project website
(i.e. gizmo-project-3.1.0.79-1-libstdc++6.tar.gz).

If you have previously installed Charni Singh's dotpet for the gizmo-project
you should remove that using petget before installing the streamlined version

This new dotpet (gizmo-proj-3.1.0.79-req.libstdc++6.pet) was created
on Puppy 4.00 (Dingo). It has been successfully tested on clean installs
of both Dingo and Puppy 2.17.1


NOTES

1. Gizmo crashes when used with Puppy version 4.00 (Dingo) if you try
selecting File->Preferences or if you click on the main panel "Preferences"
button (it doesn't crash in Puppy 2.17.1 as far as I know). The workaround is
not to try and select Preferences! You can always manually change any
preference values by editing the text xml files in the gizmo configuration
directory: /root/.gconf/apps/gizmo/settings
I suggest you first back up any that you wish to alter.
In practice, you probably don't need to change any of the preferences anyway.

2. You can find a libstdc++5 version of gizmo 3.1.0.79 suitable for older
puppies such as Puppy version 2.16CE in the sub-directory:
libstdc5-version-for-older-pups.
You still need to first install the orbit and Gconf dotpets from the
directory this readme file is in. The libstdc++5 version of gizmo may work
in some pups even older than 2.16, but I haven't been able to test that.

A few config files are left behind even then, so you should remove them manually if you want to avoid the dreaded GDB missing startup error on reinstallation. The one to manually remove are (note the dots before the names):

/root/.gizmo
/root/.gconf
/root/.gizmo-cache
