DOH! I THINK I might have messed up keyboard layouts!!

Testers of BETA3, PLEASE CHECK keyboard layout and setup!!
(I seem to have a UK layout as default, and cannot seem to change it!!)

EDIT: OR, the 'us' layout is not working, using 'uk' instead?

Won't work in Akita, missing deps - and is very large compared to elinks, plus elinks has more features.. Although this links does have fb support built in, so maybe that's why... I have yet to enable the framebuffer successfully in Akita (or Puppy in general) but Xfbdev is installed in Akita... Just needs directfb installed, then setting up, I think... I would love to get it working..

I just wanted something to load and run the GUI app(s), then go away, and work on vanilla kernels without unionfs or aufs support so I put together a fast mounter/linker/autoexecutor
It could probably use a jwm-tools free GUI to choose which apps to run from a single menu, but I always use jwm and usually package 1 binary per file, so it stays on the todo list for now. Thought it might be useful (except for the jwm_notify part ... its a hack I grokked for my x+jwm+rxvt only dev base) I tried to be smart about whether to copy or symlink (i could do removal a little smarter though ... not delete stuff in $HOME when packagers do crazy crap like including the user config in root rather than modifying the global one in /etc) and it tries to support multiuser by replacing root with $HOME
Code:

#!/bin/ash

linkmount(){
[ ! -d ${1} ] && echo usage $0 /mnt/directory not $1 && exit
for F in ${1}/* ; do
   NF=/${F#/*/*/} #the root of the mount
   case ${NF} in #multiuser support
      /root*)NF=${HOME}/${NF#/*/}
   esac
   if [ -L ${F} ];then #handle symlinks first in case of looping links (ex ., ../)
      cp ${F} ${NF} && echo ${NF} >>${2}
   elif [ -d ${F} ];then #if its a directory, we want to thread and recurse it
      [ ! -e ${NF} ] && mkdir ${NF} && NEWDIR=true
      linkmount ${F} $2 &
      [ $NEWDIR ] && echo ${NF} >>${2}
   elif [ -f ${F} ];then #we can just use symlinks for all but dir & nodes
   case ${NF} in
      ${HOME}*)cp ${F} ${NF} && echo ${NF} >>${2};;
      *)ln -s ${F} ${NF} && echo ${NF} >>${2};;
   esac
else #for /dev/* mostly ... we need write access to block/char devices
   cp ${F} ${NF} && echo ${NF} >>${2}
fi
done
}

mntdir=/mnt/${1##*/}

if [ -d ${mntdir} ];then
   while read LINE; do
      [ -d ${LINE} ] && rmdir ${LINE} || rm ${LINE} &
   done <${HOME}/.packages/${1##*/}.files
   rm ${HOME}/.packages/${1##*/}.files &
   umount ${mntdir} &&   rmdir ${mntdir} &
else
   mkdir -p ${mntdir} 2>/dev/null
   busybox mount ${1} ${mntdir} 2>/dev/null
   linkmount ${mntdir} ${HOME}/.packages/${1##*/}.files 2>/dev/null
   sleep .2
   if [ -d ${mntdir}/usr/share/applications ];then
      for PROG in ${mntdir}/usr/share/applications/*.desktop; do
         while read LINE; do
            case $LINE in
               Name=*)NAME=${LINE#*=};;
               Exec=*)EXEC=${LINE#*=};;
               Comment=*)COMM=${LINE#*=};;
               Icon=*)ICON=${LINE#*=};;
            esac
         done <${PROG}
         #one prog
         jwm_notify "${NAME}" "${COMM}" "${ICON}" "${EXEC}" close "click here to continue without running $NAME" mini-stop.xpm exit
      done
   fi
fi

Gonna have a play with this, and see how it goes, I already got otf_sfs (goingnuts) and sfs_load (shinobar) both installed in Akita, now I'm spoiled for choice!! Very Happy

I'm not entirely sure I got jwm-notify working fully, yet to test it in any meaningful situation, but as I say, I'm gonna run my standard OTF SFS test - load a browser, and a devx, then compile some stuff with it!

I am sooooooo guilty of that! vlc-gtk, browser-installer, toggle-rox-desktop, feh, conky, elinks, desksetup - I wondered where to put their config files and always ended up in /root Rolling Eyes Embarassed

SFS-Load Report: If the path to an SFS file contains the '[' or the ']' characters, then the SFS is not found or loaded. This is a problem in Akita, as mounted drives are automatically symlinked to '/media/$LABEL [$DRIVE]', for easy GTK shortcuts to mounted drives..

So for now, when loading SFS files, you need to go through /mnt/

I will try to fix the paths thing if I can.

You seem to want to replace Abiword with text only utilities.

unrtf is a popular one in UNIX world

The problem with these free utilities is how well
they handle foreign accented characters.

PostPosted: Thu 22 Sep 2011, 19:05    Post subject: ghasher  

I noticed that ghasher had a strange icon
when used with the right click menu.

This should fix it, but I noticed that
when I tried to use ghasher with pet packages
a different icon was used.

I'm still having a problem with 3 icons not aligned to
the right side of screen. I tried the fix you suggested
but it did nothing.

I noticed that if I manually drag the icons to the right
side of screen that they will stay there permanently,
so the problem probably lies with Barry Kauler's script.


By the way FixPuppyPin.bak and FixPuppyPin are the same
file as best I can tell!!

If you are stumped as to how to fix this, I would
suggest placing all icons on left side of screen,
which some puppy variants do.

Just so you can check, here are two files so you can check
what happens when I move the three icons manually.
