Yes, tce-ab is similar to software manager in mint.

Dose that mean that from that command; I can install things like mp4 players and word prosesors and other stuff?

Hi Jail Bill Gates
A lot of those types of programs require that X is running (GUI) and won't run in a shell.

I rick
I read some of the instruction manual and tried accessing the net
I managed to go to google, wikipida and youtube
I though somewhere in the instructioons it said you can view images in the shell terminal mode but not audio. As there are no image files displayed there what so ever!
Is there anyway I can view an image at all?

Might try and login to my accout hear and post from it on the tiny core shell OS soon

Sure :D
Should I look at moving things further on now like installing it onto the HDD

Is there a way I can get the browser to display images and can the browser display my IP address?

Thanks
JBG

It seems that is being handled on another thread.

I believe links2 is able to display images, I am not sure which version is in the repo or if that option was compiled into the binary.
Check and see if "links -g" works.

It might be able to do that or "ifconfig" will show that info.

It might be best to keep each thread limited to a single topic and start a new thread for each topic.
One thread for the image questions and a separate thread for the IP info question, for example.
