Subject description: a small add-on to wine to tidy up the menus
 

Attached is a small pet that tidies up the wine menu structure so that instead of having lots of wine entries scattered around the puppy menus there is just one entry under Utility which leads to a menu of all the wine programs.

The original wine .desktop files are used to dynamically create the new wine-menu.

This pet should be installed after installing green_dome/version2013's wine from here.

Uninstalling the wine-menu pet should restore the original menu structure.

The pet puts items into directory /opt
It probably works best under jwm (haven't tested it under other window managers).

Hope it is of use to people
Cheers

Hi peebee,

A great idea, well executed. Works with my older version 1.2 of Wine and adjusts my JWM Menu in Slacko.

My regards and thanks

peebee strikes again! Very Happy you always come up with something I find useful, and thank you Smile

This will be so very helpful..but forgive a dumb question.. does it install to /opt or just what exactly does it put there?

maybe another dumb question too? is there a tool to find all places wine is installed, eg: lives, has files lurking -when wine was pre-installed to a pup so one can remaster it out??

how about another dumb question (3 times the charm?) if a sfs (teamviewer) has an older wine in it, that seems to conflict with that
newer pre-installed wine, can it (TV's wine) be upgraded or removed?

I don't necessarily expect you to have these answers or a ready pet to help, BTW Rolling Eyes but hoping someone might Very Happy

Thank you for the fine work Smile I'm off to grab this to answer the 1st question, I think Smile

This is from a frugal install.

Example: wine-1.7.46-i486_v2.2.pet

To find the files that "wine-1.7.46-i486_v2.2.pet" installs, open text file:
/root/.packages/wine-1.7.46-i486_v2.2.files

In my frugal install of Lupu, there is also:
/root/.packages/builtin_files/

Thank you version2013. I was tired &between reading the /root/.packages/*.files lists and hunt/peck removal, I think I missed a few last time I tried.

peebee, I did answer my own question 1. and found all your nice desktop files. I had been using the Favorites tool in PuppyBang to do manually what your pet does much more easily and quickly. LOL I installed your pet into a pup sans wine yet to take a peek Smile

In penance for hijacking your thread, can I offer you some wine icons I picked up somewhere, sometime, and use blatantly? (I take no credit for them, but don't know whom to thank?) I don't have any icons showing in your Wine-Menu, maybe as I don't have Wine installed, but here's what I use when I'm wanting more than the default wine.png
wineicons.tar.gz

Different users, different preferences.

There are users that feel more menu entries are better.
There are users that feel above a certain threshold of entries it feels cluttered.

I figured I would start with no menu entries in the .pet.
If a user wanted menu entries, they could install another .pet
Or combine .pet(s) into a .sfs

Installing additional .pet(s) rather than removing the unwanted menu entries manually or via a script.

On my frugal install of Lupu, to update newly installed menu entries, run
Code:
fixmenus

On my frugal install of Lucid, there is a tool:
menu > Setup > Remove builtin packages

remaster reference

I remember there being a .pet somewhere on the forum that removes built-in packages.
Useful for when a puppy distro does not come with a built-in package that removes built-in packages.

Not sure where I found it, I will keep looking.

EDIT:
PET-Be-Gone v0.4
Install / uninstall Packages

Sorry for the continued thread hijacking.

XP Refugee,

Wine is not a program.
Quote:
Wine (originally an acronym for "Wine Is Not an Emulator") is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, Mac OSX, & BSD. Instead of simulating internal Windows logic like a virtual machine or emulator, Wine translates Windows API calls into POSIX calls on-the-fly, eliminating the performance and memory penalties of other methods and allowing you to cleanly integrate Windows applications into your desktop.


There are several programs that are part of Wine.

Example:
Wine config
Explorer
Program Manager
Etc.....

Wine config is the main one to use. It allows you to fine tune how Wine will work.

To run a Windows program, you do not start Wine.
You start the Windows program and it runs using Wine.
