Thanks in advance

Here you go guys Smile

Compiz!!!

UPDATE to the compiz-helper pet HERE! 111227

http://www.smokey01.com/01micko/slacko/compiz-slacko-0.8.8.sfs 30M

md5sum compiz-slacko-0.8.8.sfs
18207ca5e34802fd0578b846682cfcee compiz-slacko-0.8.8.sfs

It includes everything you need, python, plugins, emerald, ccsm and lxpanel.

You need to get the attached "compiz-helper" pet to

1) test your system is capable

2) setup ~/.xinitrc with some vars and calls to compiz/emerald/lxpanel

3) adjust /etc/profile

Your xorg.conf *should* be just fine.. don't touch it

NOTES:
Please run the attachment! It probes your system for vital tid bits. Needless to say you need your accelerated video driver, works with Mesa on Intel and old Radeon, with nvidia driver on Nvidias and fglrx on new Radeons, i don't have a clue about obscure cards, but if you get a decent glxgears number and the test is passed then you are good.
In the xinitrc an attempt is made to see if you use Hardware or Software acceleration and appropriate variables set.

There is no extra wm included (emerald takes care of it) and there is a panel in the shape of lxpanel, bare bones. You can use xfce4 or trinity-KDE and if you're game KDE4. (More on these options later).

You invoke it from console (outside of X) with xwin dummy

I made it an sfs coz it's big! And it wont make a mess if you decide to toss it out.

It is tested working on my main fast system with nvidia and fglrx, my crappy eee-701-SD (NO bull!) and my r51 thinkpad with old radeon-mobility 32M graphics. that's 4! Hmm.. I wonder how the olpc-XO-1.5 will go? Laughing

Known issues:
-there is a little square in the top left corner, it's a window of rxvt, it's the "dummy" wm
-X doesn't close cleanly on some systems, you may need to hard poweroff, but I haven't had to yet, acpid usually cuts in.
-DO NOT use this on servers or where uptime is critical, says that too on the compiz site


Many thanks to dinky (creator of Ripple) for the rxvt idea, the crunch bang guys for ideas to run W/O a wm, the compiz guys, Forlong, for the compiz-check script (hacked for root access).

Have fun! Razz

ran the fixer
(nice banana . . .)

OK I got three out of four errors
. . . so I added the Mesa GLX from Slickpet (under drivers)
OK now only have one error out of four

Next ran 'xwin startxfce4' from the prompt after adding xfce
and still looking for some wobble or evidence that Compiz is on the system . . .

. . . am I nearly there? Anyone else get those Compiz effects?
Thanks Mick. Thanks guys. Smile

Yeah baby Laughing


click on image for full-sized version.

Although everything appears to be working,
there is a slight issue with windows occasionally becoming inactive.

Maybe it is something to do with my setup, i don't honestly know,
i'll have to do some more testing.

Anyway, thank you very much Mick for the early Xmas pressie. Cool Cool

Good news, my minimalistic packages repository becomes bigger and bigger as you can see here Smile

My plan is to upload all the new packages today and tomorrow. These include Conky, Angband, bs (a Battleships clone), a wallpapers pack, stalonetray (a standalone system tray), man-pages (man pages for the Linux and glibc API, a must-have for C development), fbshot (a framebuffer screenshot capture tool), imlib2_grab (a screenshot capturing tool included in imlib2), hsetroot (a powerful wallpaper setting tool) and Aspell. And of course, all the snapshot packages (libav, mplayer and cwm) are automatically updated, too.

I hope I'll be able to produce an automatically-built and self-contained Slacko puplet with all these goodies soon Smile

You need 0 out of 4 errors Lob. Which one failed? Maybe with more info we can fix it?

Ahem.. I should have added that to "known issues" Rolling Eyes

When you minimise the rxvt dummy window, windows and lxpanel become unresponsive. Looking for a better way... Confused

Looking forth to that!

OK I am at 0 errors now Smile
there was a conflict with the ati_fglrx driver/lib
This may have installed with xfce.
I un-installed it - assuming it would be in the compiz slacko SFS

Now I can run the 'xwin dummy' but the programs all appear in top left and I can not resize or move . . .
Also the compiz animation comes up - so nearly there Smile

If I type xwin JWM I get the compiz configuation manager from the menu in desktop but only have one window and no wobble

Many thanks

Uploading the rebuilt repository, it's here. The packages are installed in /opt, with the menu entries and icons in the regular locations under /usr, so they appear in the menu.

There are many new applications, they include some nice games, improvements for existing packages, some updates (libav, mplayer2 and rxvt-unicode), xcowsay and a nice tile wallpapers pack.

Have fun! Very Happy

Hi Lob,

See the known issues.

I do have to package up a pet for xfce, slacko comliant. You can use the one in the PPM from the Slackware repo, but the menus are not Puppy compliant. You can also try the Trinity sfs instead.

jpeps, I think my basic instructions in the compiz-helper are at the opposite end of the spectrum compared to one Miss NixiPixil!

Umm ... sad news. The packages are horrible.

For some reason the new rxvt-unicode refuses to run applications through "-e". I have no idea why. Also, it seems the Terminus font is not recognized for some reason ... and Conky behaves differently for some unknown reason. I did a first build of my puplet and it's totally messed up.

I'll investigate this chaos tomorrow.

true...I didn't see anything regarding the "Trifectos Power" in compiz-helper. I'm still not sure what it is...maybe a reference to:


http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=trifecta%20of%20smoking%20power

Other searches yield:

Trifecta is always a great word to know.
So is ninnyhammer. Does it mean:
a fool or simpleton; ninny.
a chattering or flighty, light-headed person.

Guys, I like a bit of wobble and spinning special effects but the big thing for me was being able to use Openshot 1.4 in Slacko.

I will get those special effects too soon enough. Smile
Slacko is maturing, just as Lucid did.
Sad to hear igus mass compile did not work out . . . maybe it can be solved . . .

Good job! We are not a Debian, Ubuntu or Slackware clone,

We are a feisty little mongrel. Wink

Woof woof. Smile
