I'm running "slacko-5.4-opera-PAE.iso" on my usb pendrive,
but i'd like to use icewm and pcmanfm instead of the defaults.
So I've installed "icewm-1.3.7-i686-s.pet".
After running "fixmenus" everything is ok except there are no icons in the notification area (those for volume control, cpu/network monitor, etc.).

Also i could not find a pcmanfm|spacefm package for slacko53...

I've tryed puppex and Lxpup that comes with pcmanfm preinstalled as default, but i'd like to stay with vanilla puppy linux since i need PAE support and i've already set up all the rest...

As far as I can tell, Slacko doesn't integrate IceWM the way Lucid does. While I'm thinking it's .jwmrc-tray that holds the answer, I'm unsure how the notification area items, menus included, are automated aboard Lucid. At least at the moment I don't know.

Snippet:
Code:
<TrayButton popup="Free space in drives" icon="mini-hdisk.xpm">exec:partview</TrayButton>

As for SpaceFM.. it's there in your Salix repo.

ok, i've found spacefm after upgrading the repos...
It's working correctly except the file type values are missing in the detailed view and clicking on the "Type" column header makes the app crash! Shocked
EDIT: fixed installing all the package dependencies.

I've also found this pcmanfm package from the Lxpup project that isn't affected by this issue.
Btw both need the gtk icon theme to be specified in "/root/.gtkrc-2.0", otherwise you won't see many filetype icons...

[s]Concerning icewm, i've fixed the issue adding a "/root/.icewm/startup" script launching the stuff in /root/Startup[/s]
EDIT: the correct solution is:
open "/usr/sbin/delayedrun" and remove the starting dot (".") from the lines 75 and 77.


btw, i'm starting to fall in love with Lxde, is there a pet package for it?

Who needs PETs when you can have a whole Puplet? Very Happy

The latest Lxpup (13.01) is missing PAE support.
Also, after testing both pcmanfm and spacefm, i've found the latter is better: easier to re-configure shortcuts, supports custom commands and has the very useful "Copy as Text" command i'm using all the time!

uhm, I think i will stay with Icewm for the moment...

Can you suggest me a quick-mount applet that sits in the notification area?
(something like the Windows' Safely remove hardware)

Like you did a few posts back, no? Since I'm not a big mouse fan, it's xbindkeys for me.

Why don't you just bypass the notification area altogether and tie it in to a key-combo?

nah, i'm too bound to the Windows' GUI habits... Twisted Evil

I've found this python script that may fit:
https://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/traydevice
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=967103#p967103
EDIT: simpler solution with less dependencies: sit (on click it launches pmount).
