Title: Newbie question about whether TCL will work for me
Post by: jeffneedle on July 27, 2017, 11:02:33 AM
Hi.  I have a question about whether Tiny Core will work for me.  I require a Chromium/Chrome browser (I sync bookmarks with a Chromebook, and this is crucial).  Iron Browser no longer lets you sync with Google servers.  Yuck!  I also need to run an old version of Thunderbird (45.x).  This is one of the last versions that doesn't mess up the reply function.  Another yuck!  I need to play videos, sync with Dropbox, and use Calibre to convert ebooks.

Yes, quite a listing. Can this be done with Tiny Core?  Thanks.

Some of that software doesn't exist in the repos, meaning you need to compile it.
