Very Happy Hello,
The theme files, and their config`s are in:
/usr/local/share/xpenguins/themes..
The artwork is fairly simple, the config file does all the work...

update: dpup 5.x.14 with e17: after launching X-ToysGUI from the console only the xpyppy curser chaser works.

am I doing something wrong?

Edit: did a ctrl+alt+backspace, and for a brief second the globe was visible!

Thanks Jay - I'll try it out "down the track",
Cheers!

Enlightenment -17 uses the theme.edj and background.edj in /root/.e/ directories .

It seems that it is not possible to get over these .edj s . Maybe the screensaver settings can do .

*

I am surprised about having posted here once and must have forgotten about it due to a HDD failure leaving three partitions with Puppy unrecoverable .

*

Due to my own imlibs i have installed the X-Toys .pet by extracting it and cp manually and looked into the other two .pets .

Surprisingly i have compiled latest xfishtank from sid sources which creates a xfishtank binary, not a x_fish_tank binary .

Am rearranging the script codes a li'lle bit but it seems overall ok .

f.e.:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
  rox -p=
  if [ "$1" ];then
  THEME="$1"
  exec xpenguins -t "$THEME"
  else
  exec xpenguins -t `Xdialog --stdout --title xpenguins --combobox "Select a Theme:" 8 32 \`xpenguins -l | sed 's/ /_/g'\``
  fi

or replaced rox -p=/root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin with rox -p=$HOME/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin

*

Working well so far .

*

One Q : How do i alter settings in xearth to show my location and not Perth ?

The date command seems not be used by xearth
and having have compiled my kernels i did not adjust the time that time
so many of my kernels also show
Linux puppypc 2.6.30.9-i586-dpup005-Celeron2G #6 SMP Sat Jan 15 13:35:51 GMT-8 2011 i686 GNU/Linux

Very Happy Hello,
Karl, the launch script is in /root/my-roxapps/xearth..
It is set to view from the moon...
Quote:
#!/bin/sh
rox -p=
xearth -pos moon &


Quote:
xearth --help
in a terminal will reveal the configs.. As well as the website...

I forgot that E-17 overwrites the root window, where my Toys live.. Which means they run, but cannot be seen.. Ironically, cairo dock is root window, and they can run there, but I dont know enough about E-17 to answer how to kill the Enlightenment desktop, like the program kills the rox desktop, to allow the root window to display, other than thru the F# hotkeys, which is not an acceptable answer, as it disables the desktop...
Runtt21 would know how, I will bet...
He is the E-17/Puppy guru, as the man is obsessed... Cool
@Edit..
As I recall, Macpup has xpenguins... Or it is available for it..
But it may need to be converted to E-17`s edj format for E-17 to see it...
Guess I`ll have to boot up my Macpup and see if I have solved this before.. LOL.. I use 11 Pups ATM, so memory doesnt serve me so well....

I do so love the desktop this way, sans icons, but fully functional, and actually, these toys changed my concept of a desktop.. Lupen is icon free, using cairo-dock, and 'right click' menus..
Icons suck!!!!!
Damn Windoze legacy we have to get away from, I say!!!!

Not going to work in e17.Sorry.


E has a extra module for penguins as well as fire,rain & snow . Each build of macpup has a .pet of extra modules. I don't know if dpup does.

found me a manpage here : http://derpi.tuwien.ac.at/cgi-bin/man/man2html?1+xearth

Will take me some time to study it . And the earth is rotating, seems not to be tied to Perth; the middle is Moskwa, Mecca, Nairobi now; since nearly full moon here i think i get the idea about looking at the earth from that point of stand . : cool :


And for enlightenment i found that :

Here are some representative screenshots on FreeBSD 5.1 with the Enlightenment window manager and a few transparent aterms.

http://xplanet.sourceforge.net/
Not sure if it is e-16 or e-17 pictured there .

xplanet compiles nicely on my system but refuses to launch because of libjpeg62/80 mismatch on my system .

I'm right with you there! Currently working from Tazoc's LH64_514 and desperate to replace icons with cairodock etc...can't seem to get Openbox dock working...sorry off-topic.
Haven't tried X-toys with it yet, but will do soon after sorting my new environment configs.
The remarkable fishtank background is a real revelation to me - I was reminded of my old wallpaper in Win98 where I used an HTML page, with an animated stick man continually banging his head against a wall... and then I found Puppy for that old machine, and the headbanging has stopped Smile

Thank you for this !
It is working nicely in racy53 so I could not resist the temptation of internationalizing your GUI

Howto Create translation using momanager:

add /root/my-roxapps (that is where X-ToysGUI is located) to GETTEXTSCRIPTS in /usr/sbin/momanager; it is about line 133,
change it from
GETTEXTSCRIPTS="`find /bin /sbin /usr/bin .....
to
GETTEXTSCRIPTS="`find /root/my-roxapps /bin /sbin /usr/bin .....

When launching momanager you should find it in the frame "Scripts that do not have a mo file"

or

do NOT change momanager but copy above script to /root/my-applications/bin and momanager will find it.
