http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=545268#545268

I made a simple GUI (in French and English)
to open PDF files with zathura.

keniv,

This looks to me that the paste into the file was off.

Try another select and paste and see if that works.

Thanks for showing the errors, as that's always a big help in troubleshooting.

Cheers,
s

Hi Seaside

Have produced a new script file using copy and paste as described before but got the same outcome when I ran it. Compared both files with Xfdiff and they were identical so if I am doing something wrong then at least I am doing it consistently. I have done this before with other scripts and it has worked.

Hi Don570

Have just tried your gui pet for zathura and it worked. I like the " key shortcuts". I though it was a good idea to bring them up then minimise them so as if I forgot one I could bring them up again. However, if I minimise the short cuts the rest of the gui becomes unresponsive. Should I be able to minimise the shortcuts in this way? I also like your "right-click" pet. Its very useful.

Could I ask if it would be possible to convert the " simplePDFreader script submitted by L18L into a pet? I have no idea how to do this myself and do not know how mush work this involves and so I hope I am not asking to much.

Regards,

Ken.

keniv,
I have tested in lupu525 and cannot reproduce your result.
A test in drake01 has brought up a missing dependency in drake01, so your comment was useful, thanks again.

Yes, it is possible...
Wait a moment... or 2?

Hi L18L

Thanks very much for your rapid reply and the new pet. I have installed it. It would not work from the "Document" menu but did from a terminal. I had to change line 6 in /usr/share/applications/zathura-gui.desktop from

Code:
Exec=/usr/bin

to
Code:
Exec=/usr/bin/zathura-gui


I also ran fixmenus and a reboot. It now runs from the menu. I have not spent much time using it yet but in all other respects it seems to be working well. I still dont know what I was doing wrong with your script.

Thanks again for you help.

Regards,

Ken.

I compiled zathura 0.8.4 with puppy 4.3.1.

Then I included my right click option for PDF's

I compiled so that the window is slightly wider (1024 pixels)

There is a configuration file /root/.config/zathura/zathurarc
That can be modified to make the window larger
for people with larger screens.

PostPosted: Wed 27 Jul 2011, 20:18    Post_subject: corrected version of zathura  

I have corrected the package so that
it can run on earler versions of Puppy
such as 4.3.1 and Lighthouse 4.4.3

The problem was that I was confused
about whether to use the OpenWith folder
or the SendTo folder for right click options.

I choose the wrong one, but this version is corrected.
