I've tested it on Slacko 531 so it should work with
future versions. Occasionally developers change a link
or the wording of a right click menu item and that
causes a dead menu item to appear . That can
be fixed by the user by just dragging it to the trash can .

It didn't work for me on latest Slacko 5.3.3 menus remain as usual. Works in Wary 5.3 though. Maybe UTF-8 has something to do, I know there's espanol-right-click but I find it outdated compared to the original, which is more fulfeatured.

New version 5.9.7

Download available on first page


I checked on Slacko 533 which has been just released.

I noticed that Slacko doesn't have a method to check MD5sum
so I added my version of Check MD5sum.

It will only be seen when Slacko is used.
A comparison of MD5sums can be made to see if download was successful.

Don,

Any chance you have a copy of right-clicks for Fatdog64-600? Wink wink, nudge nudge.

I don't have a 64 bit machine, just old IBM desktops which
do a great job running linux.

People are free to modify the package anyway they like and post it.

Here are the instructions to make your own package.

1) Extract my package in /root. You will see a folder. Rename the folder
to a different name.

3) Switch Rox so that hidden files are shown. Make modifications
especially in /foldername/root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/OpenWith/

4) To make the final package --->

Make a temporary work folder and drag all desktop files except one to
this temporary work folder. This fools the application dir2pet
into thinking that there is only one application inside your folder.


Launch the terminal program and type

Code:
dir2pet  foldername


Go through the steps as normal but stop just before end
to put the desktop files back in their proper place
(foldername/usr/share/applications/).

Then finish the process and you will see a finished pet package in
your home folder.

You have fooled dir2pet into thinking that there is only one
application in the package.

Thanks Don.

I haven't had a close look at your architecture yet but I think it may be significantly different in Fatdog. I took a risk and installed your latest package to Fatdog and nothing showed up in the rox menu system. FD uses openbox by default, not JWM although I'm not sure if that would make a difference.

I will try your directions and see if I have any luck. I assume right-clicks uses already installed apps which may not be available in FD.

Right-clicks is great and really simplifies use of Linux. I think a lot of people would be happy to see this in FD.

Thanks again.

Hi

To get right clicks working in Fatdog, you need to create a symlink.
(i used this package: Right-click-5.9.7.pet)

Take a look in here: /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net
and see what directories you have.

The attached images show:
    what i had to begin with,
    what i had after installing the Right-click-5.9.7.pet,
    what i had after creating the symlink.


The symlink was created with this command:
Code:
ln -s /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/OpenWith /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/SendTo


Obviously, this does not mean that every 'Right Click' menu entry will work,
you will need to try them and see if they do or don't.


Hope this helps
CatDude

Please help me. I don't have a 64 bit computer.

Is it possible to find the version of fatdog
easily such as typing in terminal.....

Code:
cat /etc/puppyversion


If I knew if fatdog was the version that the user was using then
I could install the right clicks in /SendTo.

Then a user could give me a list of right clicks that
are useless and should be delected.

It would be simple to do if someone helped me. Question

Version 5.9.8 (July 14)

1) HFS images can be made. This is useful in Emulation
of a MAC computer by Puppy linux. This allows files to be
transferred to Client side in the form of an image.
Just put the file(s) you want to transfer into a folder and
make an HFS image ---> it will have .dsk extension

Mini vMac alows image to be dragged to it's window
Basilisk allows the image to be chosen at the time of launch or
else use the file sharing folder.

2) compression 1.5 added

3) dir2iso by shinobar was added but I used old name of script
