Still plugging away trying to get a slideshow with 'xlideshow'. The problem is scaling. The 'iscale' option in xli only scales by factor. So I searched, thought and searched. First I thought maybe to use Rox thumbnails. There are also lots of thumbnail executables on the web, many way too bloated or need libs or other dependancies. Sad
You know where I I found the most probable solution? Yes, you guessed it, right here on this forum! Wink
Mid this year Mark, aka MU, created a small script called 'scale2pic'. Very useful and preserves aspect ratio. It is 13K compressed, installed without a hitch. Mr. Green
Anyway, after a couple of weeks I may be able to come up with a pre-alpha. Wait and see...

works for me

It highlighted a problem with the interaction between jwm, xli and the X server (possibly just xvesa).

If my jwm config contains a desktop definition such as
Code:
<!-- Number of virtual desktops -->
<Desktops count="3">
  <Desktop>
    <Background type="gradient">#3A6EA5:#0F58A5</Background>
  </Desktop>
  <Desktop>
    <Background type="gradient">#000000:#FFFFFF</Background>
  </Desktop>
  <Desktop>
    <Background type="gradient">#FF0000:#FFFFFF</Background>
  </Desktop>
</Desktops>
then xli -onroot .......... crashes X (that is xvesa because xorg doesn't work on this machine at all)

It is a marginal problem because I think that the only way to get a jwm config like this in puppy at the moment is to hand code it.

Installed Pwidgets 0.2.
Bug in "Battery"
The first line under "TEXT" in ~/.pwidgets/configs/battery is wrong, one too many "$" at start of line. (BTW I guessed, literally Confused )
Code:
${font DejaVu:bold:size=13}

is I think how it should be; it works.

Also I had the same issue as when I installed pwidgets0.1 with the fonts. Something went wild with my install and I had to replace /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF/MONOFONT.TTF with a fresh copy from the package. Confused

PS,updated analog clock HOWTO

PPS, weather widget works great!

Hi, I've installed v0.2 but only the analogue clock shows on desktop, no other widgets will show.

Also, how do you download the skins for the clock. I keep getting 'Error 403 Don't have permission to access file' at the xonclock site.

Have you installed the dependencies (conky) as described in the main post?

Hello All

This may seem like a dumb question,
but how does one change the position where the widgets are located. (see attached image)
I would like them to start a little further down on the desktop.
What file do i need to edit in order to achieve this ?


As to the analog clock skins,
i used those that came in MU's gdesklets-0.36-i586-2gsb-MU-200clocks.pet
as posted here: gDesklets 0.36 beta (Only for Puppy-3)

Rename the .pet to .tgz and extract it somewhere,
you will get a directory called: gdesklets-0.36-i586-2gsb-MU-200clocks
you will find most of the clocks in: gdesklets-0.36-i586-2gsb-MU-200clocks/usr/lib/gdesklets/Displays/Clock/gfx/clocks

I renamed: /root/.pwidgets/misc/Clock-analog.png
then created a symlink to whatever took my fancy out of the 200 clocks.

I tested with these, and they worked OK

    earth.png = 186x186
    BallClockAqua.png = 128x128
    arne49.png = 144x144
    arne1.png = 170x170
    Rainbow.png = 197x197

To move the start-point down, you should increase the value (30) of line 17 in /usr/local/pwidgets/func.

This is kind of crappy, Not Pwidgets by any means, I was building a icewm release that included a new gtk theme, Pwidgets, new Icewm them, I had been working on it for about 2 weeks, and it was ready, I was just waiting for Pwidgets 0.2 to be release and I was going to upgrade it, So I got home from work yesterday and my PC 's were off and I asked my wife "Why is my Pc's off" She said "Power outage" grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
So I lost about 60 hrs of work, I should of backup the files, but the power never goes out here, Maybe once in 8 years, Then I load up puppy and and the first thing I see is "Pwidgets 0.2" , thats like kicking someone when he already down. LOL
Well back to it again, I really liked the themes I made, boy they were nice. This time I'll backup.

OK problem solved. I had loaded the libs first then conky, it didn't like that. Conky must be first then libs.

Now running OK.

CatDude, many thanks I'll load them now.

Your pace of development is astounding!
I still have that installation issue where the monofont does the wild thing on this system. Easy fixed but I need to investigate. Any clues? Using IBM r31 Thinkpad, CeleronM 1066, 512 ram, run live cd, 412, ... any more info needed?

BTW, updated previous posts in this thread and my HOWTO for the analog clock skins. CatDude, added your suggestion to HOWTO.
Cheers
