I just compiled lxpanel 0.3.8.1.

In muppy 0084 beta2, with Gnome.sfs installaed, so I cannot guarantee, it works on other systems.
It does NOT include Plinejs patch, so it uses XDG menus (/etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu).
Like this I have the education category.
And german menus in my german version of Muppy.


Let me know if it works, and what needs changes.

PLEASE READ THE RELEASENOTES BEFORE YOU INSTALL:

Thank You, Mark!
i just was looking for a panel for new boxpup that i lke so much

i can say that this panel works although it crashes when i try to change a shortcut application ( i installed this version of lxpanel from zenwalk some days before and it had the same bug with segfault message whe i ran it in console)
i want to use boxpup on eee pc, so i'd like to have an autohide option if possible

Mark,

I've been using OpenBox and Lxpanel for a while, works pretty nice. Two problems:

1) On boot, Lxpanel is blank until you click the mouse.

2) Openbox doesn't focus Seamonkey's download dialogs correctly.

Anyway, I had compiled Lxpanel 0.3.8.1 patching it like Jason did, so it generates it's own menus. You can find a tarball with Lxpanel and Openbox here:

http://puppylinux.ca/tpp/kirk/openbox-lxpanel/

The patched source for Lxpanel 0.3.8.1 is there too.

Edit: This is good for anyone who wants to watch Flash video full-screen. You will also need a newer version of Flash, the one included in Puppy is broke.

To use it in a Iso, we had to add more modifications.
E.g. the logout does not work.
I will have a look at these issues this weekend, as I'd like to include this version in Muppy.

I was playing around with LXDE few days ago and got everything working fine in Puppy 4 alpha 6, to fix the "seg fault" problem (lxpanel) I had to recompile glib (the same version used in puppy 4) there is no problems with Puppy-3.xx and Muppy-0.8x. To fix the logout I installed lxsession-lite (you must hack the source code to get the "Reboot" and "Shutdown" buttons working properly) and lxcommon (this one installs the "startlxde" and "lxde-logout" scripts) . I can't remember more at the moment, hope this helps.

EDIT: Screenshots:

1. My LXDE desktop (in spanish)
2. This is the logout dialog
3. But if I run 'lxde-logout' ...

thanks wow.
The screenshots look great Smile

To logout, you can create a script:
/usr/local/bin/lxsession-logout

Code:
#!/bin/bash

xmessage -center -title "logout" -buttons "desktop-chooser:103,reboot:101,shutdown:102" "
 exit Puppy:"

r=$?

if [ "$r" == "101" ];then
   wmreboot
   echo rebooting...
fi

if [ "$r" == "102" ];then
   wmpoweroff
   echo shutdown...
fi

if [ "$r" == "103" ];then
   muppywmchooser &
   echo switch desktop...
fi

I'm attaching my patch to merge all puppy specific categories into the default LXPanel menu structure(multi lang).

off-topic??:
I uninstalled LXSession-Lite-0.3.6 because it can't remembers the applications in use when you logout, and I installed LXSession-0.3.2 again. I hacked the logout dialog as I did with LXSession-Lite. Now I can use the session manager to manage my mixed desktop environment. The patch is attached bellow.

I updated the pet in the first message.

ATTENTION:
This includes some files, that overwrite files from older versions, you might backup those first!

Changes:
includes wow's lxpanel patch to display icons and more files (well done wow, thanks!).
On my system, I do not get new categories like "Filemanagers", but now the filemanagers are visible in "system utilities".
Before, they were not visible at all.

Added:
/usr/bin/lxpanel
/usr/bin/lxpanelcfg
These now point to the files in /usr/local/lxpanel-0.3.8.1/bin/

I added my own /usr/local/bin/lxsession-logout described above.

Added:
/root/.icewm/startuplx
/root/my-applications/bin/starticewmlx

These run icewm without tray and blinky.
You could add lxpanel to startuplx, it is not added by default, as Muppy has a more complex startsystem.
You then could start icewm with lxpanel by typing
xwin starticewmlx


Added:
a default configuration in
/root/.config/lxpanel/default/


-----------------------------------
magerlab:
with Plinejs lxpanel compiled in Puppy4, I had crashes in Puppy3.
This happened, when the tray was used.
You might remove the tray with an editor from /root/.config/lxpanel/default/panel.
Maybe that works.
If yes, you had to recompile it in Puppy 4, to use it with the tray.

Mark

Hi Guys sometime ago I was messing around with lxde which uses lxpanel, well what thinking why not one of you download the icewm sources and in the when your configuring it you can disable the taskbar and menu, just about anything, that would make icewm really lite, and a perfect match for lxpanel, plus you could start up lxpanel in the icewm startup file and not even touch /root/.xinitrc which is a blessing in its own.
just change the etc/windowmanager file to icewm-sessions and restart Xserver.
I 'like the idea because you could easily cutdown the icewm themes to just the window decorations and with that, it could look like xp,vista,make, my puppy paws, etc.
anyways I would do it but I have too much going at this point.

i think that icewm is sufficient itself
it has it's own panel and can show network and battery status( no need for plugins or blinky)
also it support app launchers

and the panel can autohide unlike lxpanel

my favorite for now is openobx or xfce4 but i always think of icewm also as a chioce
