Hi guys, well as you know I'm not much on gtkdialog hungry resource programs so I've been looking for alternatives. And well I-task is ones of those, its a bit on the large scale due to it comes precompiled, I wanted to compile the libs for it but it libs had issues with puppys mime types, so I'm not going to change all that for this program.

Anyways this program takes 1/2 the resources of Pprocess, using htop, plus it 100% shutdown, and has a nice graphical feature in the History tab.
I made this package up to replace Pprocess in your menu you don't have 2 identical programs and get mixed up. The nice thing about this program also, is that it autoupdates in real time, it refresh about every 2 seconds, so once you kill a program, it will show up on screen.

Dear ttuuxxx,

I looked at I-task and think for the size that it is inappropriate for puppy. I am attaching lxtask, which I just compiled a few minutes ago. You might wish to package it as a pet. It is 27k stripped - not 1.5 MB unpacked with the extra lib (I-task). It works in Puppy 3.01 and 4.12 very nicely.

With kind regards,
vovchik

PS. lxtask also does autorefresh.

Well thats great, I compiled lxtask well over a year ago, and back then it had a few issues, but this version works much better Smile

The lxtask also can be installed with petget Smile
Very nice and small solution!

RIGHT-click - "save as" to download without petget.

You're joking right Smile


I'd definitely say lxtask is the way to go so far. The source looks small and clean also. Should make it easy should one want to expand on it.

Thanks guys,
Mike

lxtask did run right out of the box.
itask doesn't give the expected screen layout with the tasks.

That's REALLY weird Sad
But is i.task really not buggy anymore?
I tried all those i. applications again a month or two back, and decided they are really bad news, and I won't try them again.
