Running Skype in DoD's Lightweight Portable Security 1.3.4
 
DoD's Lightweight Portable Security 1.3.4 is a gem for daily use, providing security, a lean clean desktop, automated network adapters detection and connection to public wired/wireless networks. It comes ready to view YouTube videos and listen to streaming audio. The file manager is Windows-like, with easy multiple source and target windows, and separately labeled right-click "Copy" and "Paste" (yes!!).

What is missing in LPS 1.3.4, is Skype, which would allow one to use LPS as a home phone, which is what I use my laptop for in Windows...

The distro boots from flashdrive in non-persistent mode, so while it does allow saving data as needed to the flashdrive, it does not retain any new software installation: I need an easy way to install Skype anew each time, when booting the laptop.

1- Can someone help with a streamlined manual procedure, to easily install Skype?

2- Or even better, create a cron-job-like file that I could run from the command line in LPS to install the program, from Skype install files saved in a data directory on the flashdrive.

Please give the solutions step-by-step, as I do not know Linux.

It would defeat the use of the disk to begin with.

See what this file does and then you would know more about the install.
USBInstall.bat

I haven't played with it but you can try some of the installers at www.pendrivelinux.com and see it they can install it with persistence. Some of the casper creators may allow you to add in a casper file to then use.

If you have it on a usb from using the windows installer then you might be able to edit out restrictions.

I will work on it to see if I have time tonight.

I have looked at this a couple of times, but I know I don't trust the DoD to not silently scan my entire system. If I was using secure kit on a secure site I wouldn't care, but not on any system of mine.

Stuxnet/Flame sound familiar anyone ?.

More people ought to scan that disk to see if it is indeed secure.

Well, nothing is secure really but it does seem to be opensourced linux as far as I can tell.

I only played with it for a while. The site that created it offers some information that may be used to create a site or your specific distro. I think it would end up being more trouble. The entire OS loads from intrid to a ram disk. That isn't really bad just that you'd have to break that apart to fool with it.

It is possible to create a live usb easily. The cd has a batch file to be used and I assume most pendrive installers work.
