In most puplets the icons of the drives and partitions are added on the bottom of the screen from left to right. I would like them at the left of the screen from the top to the bottom (so they do not overlap the space for wbar). How can I instruct pupy to do that automatically (of course I can do it manually but it is difficult to alingn icons correctly, and that looks sloppy)?

Hey Dromeno

You're looking for /etc/eventmanager config file; at its bottom you'll find something like:

tail /etc/eventmanager wrote:
#091208 adjust drive icons placement, read by /sbin/pup_event_frontend_d
#TODO: GUI in /usr/sbin/eventmanager
#gap between icons and edge of screen (>0 if need to leave space for a tray)...
ICON_PLACE_EDGE_GAP=64
#indent from edge before icons start...
ICON_PLACE_START_GAP=32
#spacing between successive icons (64 matches other icons on desktop)...
ICON_PLACE_SPACING=64 #56
#left, right, bottom, or top of screen...
ICON_PLACE_ORIENTATION='bottom'

Restart X after modifications.

Greetings!

Thanx!

come to think of it... perhaps it is an idea to add this functionality to the01 desk setup template manager. I will drop its creator 01micko a note.
