Hello radky Very Happy

This is a gettext version I made for my Openbox+Extras project. It was necessary because making one package for each language takes much time. Now that all components of O+E are gettexted, I can build one package with multiple language support. I am sharing PupShutdown-1.8-gettext.pet here in case you are interested:

Hi vicmz,

Thanks for the internationalized format. Your hard work is much appreciated.

BTW, in case you are interested Smile , a new version of PupShutdown is almost ready. Importantly, the gui text has changed very little since 1.8.1, so additional gettext formatting would be minimal.

This release will support many of the popular window-manager switchers, and has a bugfix for the variant font list (fc-list) generated in recent Slacko releases.

Best Regards,
radky

Great Very Happy
I will include it in the next release of O+E. I'm planning to gettext PupSnap, too -- the Hispanic love that tool.

Off-topic (should I rather say related topic?) - Testers and translators needed for current release of Openbox+Extras:

PostPosted: Sun 24 Mar 2013, 15:44    Post subject: pupshutdown declines to install  

hi radky,

i'm trying to find a way to standby a precise pup 5.4.91,
kernel 3.8.0, on a dell inspiron b120

yr thread caught my eye. when the pupshutdown pet
in the link downloaded as a .gz file i was disconcerted
but clicked on it. the archiver offered to unpack to the same location so i did that then renamed it to .pet file

however, the ppm reports failure to install. i had a look
through yr thread and didn't see any mention of the
snags i've hit. what do you suggest? thank you.

cheers, mm

Hi mmmrr,

After reading your post I downloaded the PupShutdown-1.8.1.pet with Firefox, and again with Pwsget (menu->internet->Pwsget secure file downloader) with no problems.

At times, browser downloads can be problematic, so you could try a download manager such as Pwsget or uGet.

Just copy and paste the current download URL:
Code:
http://www.smokey01.com/radky/PupShutdown-1.8.1.pet

PupShutdown calls the acpitool utility (not included in the pet) to provide suspend functions for your notebook. I don't know if precise 5.4.91 has acpitool by default, but all necessary utilities and suspend scripts are included in pemasu's excellent Upup Precise (currently with kernel 3.8.3.1).

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=84944

Thanks for your question. Smile

thanks for the speedy reply, radky

when i go to the url you provide i'm
offered the same .gz file which i did
not know what to do with before.

when i approach the pupshutdown
from the radky side of the url, i see
the index of yr .pet files but when
i click on one it shows up in the download
manager as a .gz file.

perhaps it's a quirk in the opera browser
download manager, though it would be a
first. i'll try with a different d-l manager.

i let you know what happens, cheers, mm

good catch, radky, thanks.
i'll try installing it after a bit
of sleep. i found that the opera
browser downloader worked
worked ok when it was run from
linux. i was having my problems
while using opera on win-xp.
cheers, mm

hi radky,
installed fine, nice piece of work.
i had the notion that there was a
way of invoking standby using acpitool.
does the standalone acpitool.pet
do the job? do i need to put files
in particular places ?
cheers, mm

Hi mmmrr,

The pet you reference is probably acpitool-0.5.1-i486.pet, which installs the acpitool executable to /usb/bin/.

Keep in mind, the acpitool utility does not function equally in all notebooks, but you can test by invoking 'acpitool -s' from the commandline, or by selecting the Standby option in PupShutdown.

Also, pemasu's Upup Precise has multiple additional scripts which support suspend functions through the power button or by closing the notebook lid. You may find this functionality very useful.

Good luck! Smile

thanks again, radky
i've used the acpitool pet on other pups
it wouldn't work on the target compu/os,
gave a no access to /pro/acpi/sleep notice.
that's why i'm trying yr fine app but i did not
see a standby button in the display of buttons.
does the standby button only appear when
standby is possible, ie, when acpitool is present?
i'll keep you posted. cheers, mm

Hi mmmrr,

The suspend option (standby button) will be available after you install the acpitool pet. You must restart PupShutdown after installing the pet.

It seems acpitool alone may not work for your notebook, but the additional scripts in pemasu's Upup Precise may be of value to you. PupShutdown also supports the /etc/acpi/sleep.sh suspend script in Upup Precise, so you may want to try this option.

Hi Radky,

It occurred to me that adding an option to PupShutdown to enable closing without Saving could come in handy. Is it possible? No pressure or rush. Just a thougtht.

Hi mikesir,

Possibly, you are using an older version of PupShutdown? Smile

In the current PupShutdown-2.01, the Preferences module provides options to 'save changes and exit' and 'exit without saving' (last two button in right-lower corner).

Also, the same options are available in the secondary module for 'Configuration options', accessible from the Preferences module (third button from right-lower corner).

Thanks for your question.
