PostPosted: Sun 10 Jan 2010, 22:59    Post subject: Suggest Supporting Desktop Specific Startup Commands  

I'm in the process of converting the in-laws from Windows to Puppy Linux. After getting over the "it's different" learning curve they really like it, especially the virtual desktops. "It's like having multiple computers". They also like the quick boot time and I'm looking forward to not spending my holidays chasing viruses. One of the things that they asked for was to be able to have the system auto start different applications on each desktop. AOL email on one desktop and Yahoo email on another.

Disciple helped me to achieve this effect by using xte in a startup script to switch between the desktops and start the apps. See:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=380493#380493

It works well but the screen flashes and I had to add sleep statements to allow the apps to get started before switching desktops. Otherwise the app will land on whichever desktop is active when the app completes launch.

My suggestion would be to allow the StartupCommand to be included within the Desktop tag. At startup the user would immediately see desktop one while the apps on the other desktops are launching in the background.

Regards,

Steve Z.

Hello!
Working on a French version of Puppy, I was wondering how the pop-up menu (right click on windows titlebar or taskbar: Send to, Layer, Stick [....] Kill, Close) could be converted to French? Where are the system files that could be changed?
Thank you a lot!

download and extract the latest sources
http://joewing.net/programs/jwm/snapshots/jwm-464.tar.bz2
and go to /jwm-464/src/root.c <--- right "Open as Text"
and also jwm-464/src/winmenu.c <--- right "Open as Text"
just search for the names you want changed and change them, then compile it and then replace your current one, If I was you I would search each file in /jwm-464/src/ for a common word like Kill each time just change it to the same word,


Or I would PM http://murga-linux.com/puppy/privmsg.php?mode=post&u=4477 that is our most active french user, and if it has been done, he's done it already Smile

Also there is a french version of puppy linux by that same user http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=toutou
if his JWM is in french, you could simply copy and replace your jwm with that one, I'm not sure if he converted it or not.

Hello!
Thanks for your reply, I'll take a look at the source files you mentioned and try. The French version I am modestly working on is... Toutou LINUX... and the pop up menu is actually... in English !
Regards.

I reported a bug here where JWM displays the window size of Pizzasgood's new retrovol program incorrectly http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=380227#380227
He thinks the problem is with JWM, or possibly GTK is giving JWM the wrong numbers. Would anyone here have any idea if JWM is to blame or not?

Hello,
My test with jwm-464.tar.bz2 was successful but some little things seem to be a bit problematic. I don't know exactly the reason...
My question: Is it better to work on this latest tar.bz2 file or on the one that comes with Puppy 4.31? If this one is 'better' than that one, what is please the version of jWM I have to download?
Thank you for your kind attention.
Regards

I would stick to the 464, posted above, That one is the latest stable one.

Thanks for your responsiveness.
So, those 'little things that seem to be a bit problematic' mentioned above are probably due to my fault?

Hello,
I would like to do a pet file to test my work. What must I do? Or is there somewhere any tutorial that could explain this step clearly?
Thank you.
