Just did full install to ext4 partition of slacko 5.3.3-4g

when I install pwidgets 2.40 and try to use cpu-bar, it does ont appear on screen.

from command line i get following:

/root
# pwidgets
/usr/local/pwidgets/func: line 287: [: =: unary operator expected
/usr/sbin/fixwidgets: line 5: kill: (17934) - No such process

Conky: no text supplied in configuration; exiting

Conky: desktop window (40001f) is subwindow of root window (5Cool
Conky: window type - override

Conky: setting bg window (2800001)
/usr/local/pwidgets/func: line 355: kill: (17968) - No such process
Conky: setting bg window (2800001)

This works fine in luci/lupu current series.

Subject description: Scaling the widgets panel to fit resolution/monitor?
 

G'day,
I've been setting up in my loft/attic an "old" computer (2008) using older peripherals - leashed-2button-mouse with a ball, keyboard on a cable - including an old 15" CRT monitor.

Adding a range of Pups, I end up with various optimum screen resolutions, with vesa probably proving most readable/reliable (it's a nv vs nouveau situation otherwise).

I like to use pwidgets with each Pup, particularly now the 'wireless' widget as I am trying to get wireless working from the two downstairs routers I have (one set to WPA, the newer one to WPA2). The other widgets I like are the analog clock, puppy drive space, RAM, the two CPUs, processes and the local weather, as well as the Puppy linux widget to remind me which Pup I've started up.

But the widgets scroll off the bottom of the display unless I choose a high resolution (e.g. 1600x900 is microscopic). The widgets also cover some of the partition icons across the bottom of the screen - I've put three old hard drives into the computer so there are a lot of drive icons.

Rather than edit each widget config file, can the complete widget panel be scaled in some way to fit the display space I'd like?

Thanks for any ideas or help,

David S.

Hello David
I am afraid the widgets are not scalable. The only _simple_ way to squeeze the widgets are by adjusting the height at the top of each configuration file. see /root/.pwidgets/widgets/*

PostPosted: Mon 12 Nov 2012, 23:28    Post subject: Possible Weather fix for Slacko-5371 and others
Subject description: pdingobats font doesn't work
 

Recently I started testing the beta4 of Slacko 5.4 (5371). The only problem I found was that the icon fonts (pdingobats.ttf) in the weather widget and Puppy Space widget wouldn't work, just square boxes. Crying or Very sad So I hacked pdingobats in Fontforge and came up with pdingobats2. So far its working, see here.

You can install the attached .pet and then go to /root/.pwidgets/widgets/Weather and /root/.pwidgets/widgets/Space_Puppy_filesystem and change all mentions of pdingobats to pdingobats2. Then restart Pwidgets (terminal -> #fixwidgets) or reboot.

I've only tested this in Slacko5371 and Squeeze-5X3412 and I'm still running Pwidgets-2.2.7 (If it ain't broke don't fix it Laughing ) but I expect it to be the same in later versions.

Cheers, J

G'day jrb,

Thanks for the pwidgets font fix with pdingobats2.

Fixed my several full and frugal recent Slackos where pwidgets-2.40 gave me the rectangular icons.
I can report the cloudy icon now works - just have to wait for some changes in the weather here, to be sure everything's fully corrected.

I found it better to edit the affected widgets config files from the drop-down menu ("File>Show widget config file(s)") in pwidgets, to get the fix functioning after installing your .pet.

Haven't had this icon issue in any squeezed Pups with pwidgets-2.40, just slackos.

Again, thanks for the fix.

David S.

pwidgets-2.4.1, since pwidgets is in "maintenance mode" I'm sure ziggy wont mind me posting this.

Couple of small bugs fixed, added jrb's fixed pdingobats

I didn't have any problems with squeezed Pups either but I thought I better try this in something else to make sure it didn't screw up there.

Oddly enough this also fixed another problem I was having with all recent pups. I run 4 machines on one monitor with a KVM switch. When I ran the weather widget xorg would freeze when I switched to another machine. When I came back I would just get a black screen with big white mouse cursor. Had to Ctrl-Alt-Bksp and restart xwin. Now that problem is gone. Go figure Confused

G'day widgeteers,

Tried 01micko's pwidgets-2.4.1 quick-fix for the pdingobats problem with the weather and puppy space widgets in recent slackos.

Weather widget now is showing the right icons for recent Sydney weather, but the puppy space icon (Space_Puppy_Filesystem) is now a couple of small squares, not the hard-drive icon of early widgets.

Trivial 'bugs' that someone responsible, knowledgeable and idle Smile could fix:
Celsius is mis-spelled in the weather widget
The version number (in the Help>About box) is several versions out-of-date if the latest pwidgets is 2.4.1

Hey folks,

Headed off to work, but I've been tweaking my desktop "look" on my "new" tinker box and was wondering (as I can't find anywhere from searching):

Is there anywhere that people have uploaded Pwidgets preset color themes in .pet files?

The number of themes that Pwidgets comes with is a bit minimal, and I could go through and edit everything manually to get the colors I would like, but I would love to see what interesting color combinations other folks have come up with Smile

Thanks!

Subject description: Puppylinux Widget
 

I have the same issue as PenguinPupLin. My Puppylinux widget truncates the version to 5...4.

Is there an edit to the config file to fix this? I have tried changing size, borders, font, font size, etc. to no avail.

A problem I always have with Pwidgets is when I change colour and then restart X or add new plugins, it switches back to default colour. At times it won't start, and I have to force it from the menu. I have tested the latest Wary, Slacko and Precise, and other people don't seem to have the same issue, so I guess it's my graphic card? (an Intel one, not sure the model)
