Welcome to Quickset Puppy!

This is Puppy Linux 4.3.1JPqs1 Quickset live CD(Released on Febrary 2010). It is an easy-to-setup version based on Puppy Linux 4.3.1JP(Japanese edition). Differences with the original version is described on this document.

Puppy Linux is provided as live CD's(.iso file). You can use Puppy Linux as soon as you bootup your computor from the live CD. You may need pressing [Del], [f.1], [f.2], [f.9], or [f.12] at the bootup and set up BIOS or select bootup media depending on your PC. Reffer the documents on your own PC.


There is a bug that Timezone cannot change (Default JST). Download and extract timezone-set-20100213.gz, then replace "/usr/sbin/timezone-set".

First setup

Booting up your PC from this Quickset live CD, hopefully automatically starts up the desktop with 800x600 screen size. A GUI dialog for the first setup appears. You may need to change the settings of language, timezone, keyboard layout, and screen size if you like to. Timezone and keyboard is initially set to JST (Japan) and jp(JP106/Japanese) keyboard. Language is initially in Japanese. You can choose English at the same dialog. Another languages support are provided by the additional sfs files.

If the PC failed to startup the desktop, try 'Safe mode' at the bootup option. Select the bootup menu(it may be frendly interface thanks to the Grub4Dos) by using up and down arrow keys. Type 'xorgwizard' after the command prompt appears.

The network connection is to be automatic in case eth0 interface found and DHCP is available.

How does the Quickset?

Most of the automatic mechanism is that of the Puppy natively has. I (shinobar) only made the first setup GUI and arranged the initial settings of the Quirky.

Not only the new GUI, some scripts are modified.

The initial settings is preset by some files.
