PostPosted: Tue 07 Jun 2011, 10:16    Post_subject: More efficient method  

Dear DPUP5520,

I think this can be done with much less overhead (80MB for java and 854k for IPMonitor), e.g.:

Code:

#!/bin/sh
my_ipno=$(wget http://cmyip.com -qO - | grep -Ewo '\b([0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}\b' | uniq)
gtkdialog-splash -timeout 6 -fontsize large -fg red -icon "gtk-network" -text "External IP: $my_ipno "


That's 205 bytes:)

With kind regards,
vovchik

PS. gtrayicon could be used to post and renew info in they tray for more a bit more elegance and minimal effort.

Vovchik's script is easy enough to use. I only had to paste it into a console window and then hit Enter. Smile

My computer is behind a Motorola SURFboard cable modem gateway. I assume a gateway is essentially the same thing as a router. Is the IP address I get from vovchik's script the one to use with Psip? (To email to my brother so he can enter it into Psip at his end.)

Thank you. I'll see if I can get him to cooperate in an experiment. Smile

vovchik,

I like this script so simple, so I added a extra feature to it, seeing puppy has xclip, well my quirky 120 does anyway, I can add the ip-address to a clipboard and paste it with the middle mouse button.

Code:
#!/bin/sh
my_ipno=$(wget http://cmyip.com -qO - | grep -Ewo '\b([0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}\b' | uniq)
echo "$my_ipno" > my_ipno.tmp ; cat my_ipno.tmp | xclip
gtkdialog-splash -timeout 6 -fontsize large -fg red -icon "gtk-network" -text "External IP: $my_ipno "


Geoffrey Very Happy

PostPosted: Sun 12 Jun 2011, 02:09    Post_subject: ip number to clipboard  

Dear Geoffrey,

That is a very nice and useful touch (clipboard) Smile You could avoid the use of a temp file by changing your copy line to this:
Code:

echo "$my_ipno" | xclip -selection clipboard


With kind regards,
vovchik

PS. The entire prog then looks like this:
Code:

#!/bin/sh
my_ipno=$(wget http://cmyip.com -qO - | grep -Ewo '\b([0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}\b' | uniq)
echo "$my_ipno" | xclip -selection clipboard
gtkdialog-splash -timeout 6 -fontsize large -fg red -icon "gtk-network" -text "External IP: $my_ipno "

I just tried the script with your change, it doesn't seem to work for me, when I paste, it pastes what ever was in the clipboard previously.

I have tried that command before that's how I came about using " echo "$my_ipno" > my_ipno.tmp ; cat my_ipno.tmp | xclip "

as that was the only way I could get it to work by creating a tmp file.

Dear Geoffrey,

I have attached my xclip (perhaps it's different from yours). I am also running glipper and autocutsel (that weird old x11 utility that produces a small white square at the right/bottom of your monitor). Could that be the difference?

With kind regards,
vovchik

just had a look around to find the problem this seems to fix it.
Code:
echo "$my_ipno" | xclip -selection XA_SECONDARY


Edit: tried your xclip seem to be the same file size wise anyway, still didn't work with "echo "$my_ipno" | xclip -selection clipboard"

so now the script looks like this and works ok.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
my_ipno=$(wget http://cmyip.com -qO - | grep -Ewo '\b([0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}\b' | uniq)
echo "$my_ipno" | xclip -selection XA_SECONDARY
gtkdialog-splash -timeout 6 -fontsize large -fg red -icon "gtk-network" -text "External IP: $my_ipno"


I got the info from here http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/xclip-linux-insert-files-command-output-intoclipboard/

Code:
"echo $my_ipno" | xclip -selection XA_CLIPBOARD"
this also works.

Edit: ok tried your original script with echo "$my_ipno" | xclip -selection clipboard
it does work but only if pasting into the terminal with the right click menu "paste" , I should have told you that I'm using Quirky 120 NOP with thunar, no rox

I have 2 issues that I could use some guidance on.
  • Where is the Log?
  • And my IP changes are not signaling desktop.
Thanks in advance

gcmartin I'm not really sure about the sounds problem but I will send off an email to the developer to ask him, as for the log files you can find them at /root/usr/share/IPMonitor/logs/ ; also do not try to set it up as a daemon it will not work

PostPosted: Wed 15 Jun 2011, 13:02    Post_subject: Logs  

Been running on the desktop for several days. I just stopped it and got the following:
Code:
ls -l /root/usr/share/IPMonitor/logs/
ls: cannot access /root/usr/share/IPMonitor/logs/: No such file or directory
Maybe I missed something along the way for proper setup or I hit a bug.

Edited: Running ICEPUP: Found them here
Code:
ls -l /root/logs
total 8
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 165 2011-06-14 23:41 2011-06-14.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 179 2011-06-15 12:21 2011-06-15.log
You may want to add a note to the IPMonitor announcement Post about this feature of IPMonitor

This is a very nice and handy tool. I am now getting a picture of my ISP's pattern. The log and the alert is what make this so useful and powerful.

Hope this helps
