Shoes Federales (3.2b1) for Raspberry Pi

I’ve uploaded Shoes 3.2 (federales) for the raspberry pi. It’s a .run file so you should have Midori save it in your home dir although any directory should work. When the download is complete, you’ll need to open a terminal and cd to where you saved the download. For example:
pi@tpi ~ $ ls -l
total 10392
drwxr-xr-x 2 pi pi 4096 Jan 30 02:13 Desktop
-rw-r--r-- 1 pi pi 5781 Feb 2 2013 ocr_pi.png
drwxrwxr-x 2 pi pi 4096 Dec 31 1969 python_games
-rw-r--r-- 1 pi pi 10624280 Jan 30 02:35 shoes-3.2b1-gtk2-armhf.run

Then make it executable to it can install itself.
pi@tpi ~ $ chmod +x shoes-3.2b1-gtk2-armhf.run
Run the installer
pi@tpi ~ $ ./shoes-3.2b1-gtk2-armhf.run
A little bit later, in raspberry time, you’ll get a half screen of dots and then the terminal prompt. So where is Shoes? Look at your desktop. See the Icon? You can use it. Shoes Federales (aka 3.2) has been installed in your ~/.shoes/federales directory and the desktop Icon/launcher is in ~/Desktop. You can delete the .run file if you like. You can re-install it as many times as you like – reinstalling won’t fix anything. From the opening splash screen, Read the Manual, and on the left side, select “AndSoForth” and then “sample”. NOTE: some samples will fail. It’s not you, they haven’t worked in years unless you want to fix them.
