vicmz, thank you for this! Downloaded the fat pet version, using LX panel, working well on Wary5.2.2. Problem free at this stage.


That's good news! Very Happy

Remember you can customize the panel by right-clicking it then choosing Panel Configuration. In the Appearance tab you can choose between apply the current GTK theme, apply a solid colour with opacity (set opacity to zero for a transparent panel), and apply a background image (for this one you'll have to set the panel height to fit the background.png because the latter has a lower height).

You can also right-click the panel then select Create New Panel, put the new panel opposite the taskbar, add the Application Tray plugin and put your favourite programs, the new panel will act as a dock (see the screen captures in the first post).

Yes, thank-you, this is just what I wanted. I've been making changes, trying things out. Just what my Wary install needed to spruce it up. Very Happy

Thanks again!

new version 1.1.2
lxpanel bug fixed by 01micko (lxpanelctl breaks the panel when reloading in transparent mode).

I was unable to update the fat version, still no broadband spot available for me. Downloading or uploading files heavier than 10 MB overheats the battery of my phone and is a difficult task on a very slow connection.

Here's one from debian; I don't know if it will work.

I wasn't able to test yet, but I'll do it and report ASAP.

PostPosted: Tue 12 Mar 2013, 15:19    Post subject: Two Lxpanels?  

Hi vicmz,

I use Jejy69"s Lxpup Slacko 13 (LXDE / KDE).and was wondering could I add your Openbox PET but skip the Lxpanel? This puppy has its own LXDE/MATE/KDE/XFCE panel built-in. Or is it better to load your Openbox PET on a seperate Slacko save file?

Does the Openbox work with well with another file manager besides ROX?

Ahora en Español para que todos entiendan. Very Happy

Se puede agregar tu PET de Openbox a Lxpup Slacko 13 (LXDE/KDE) de Jely69 sin el Lxpanel? Ese Puppy ya tiene uno con LXDE/MATE/KDE/XFCE integrado. O es mejor hacer un SFS seperado con solo tu Openbox?

Trabja bien el Openbox con otro file system aparte de ROX?

Saludos!

Hola natgab Very Happy
Qué bonito escribes en español Very Happy

file manager = gestor de archivos
file system = sistema de archivos

The first thing you get when you install openbox_plus_extras.pet is the Panel Chooser, if you already have a panel installed you can simply click the 'close' button and continue, or if you have a pet for a panel that is not included in the package, you can install that pet then click on 'close' and continue.

---Sounds good. I will try it out on a back up of my system. Would be great to get it working in my current system. Though I think I'm going to have to " fatten up " my save file if I add another file system. KDE alone takes up as much as Slacko Laughing

I will post back results on how it went.

vicmz,

I downloaded the Openbox+Extras Fat Edition, and installed to my Lxpuppy 13 install. I chose Tint2 and did not install LXpanel. It gave me the Window Manager changer ( KDE / Openbox ), but it left me stuck in Openbox.

It also did not seem to work correctly, it would not allow wallpaper changer to work. It also did not show the applications installed from the other WM, just what was included with the Openbox PET. I will just go back to my old version and then try Openbox on a clean copy of Slacko 5.4 I want to play around with Openbox too!

natgab,

Please have in mind that this Openbox support is a minimalistic alternative for Puppy versions that haven't got Openbox or the full LXDE installed. Openbox and Lxpanel and PCManFM (the latter not included in the packages offered in this thread) are part of LXDE, so you don't actually need to install openbox_plus_extras if you already have LXDE (for example in Lxpup). As far as Tint2 is concerned, it works just for Slacko and Precise, you may have problems or not see it at all in Puppy derivatives since they're heavily modified versions of Puppy. The Tint2 panel offered in openbox_plus_extras doesn't work for Wary/Racy either, it needs some weird dependencies.



By the way, I'm now working more hours, so at the moment I haven't got enough time to build packages. I also have sight problems, that's why I'm in front of my computer less frequently. Hopefully I'll feel better, and have more time, by mid-April.

---I think I used the wrong word. I did mean the Openbox / Tint2 combination. I did go and install to a standard version of Slacko 5.33, not the modified version I use with LXDE and KDE. Works great and now I will play around and edit the tint2 and the widgets once I read more on them. Hope you feel better.

This is what I have so far, I installed to my desktop instead of my laptop:

PostPosted: Tue 16 Jul 2013, 20:53    Post subject: show desktop -- I miss it (Solved)  

Hi vicmz,

I got spoiled with Lupu's combination of Openbox + fbpanel. Although I really like your Openbox + lxpanel for use in Precise and raring, and think lxpanel is in many ways superior to fbpanel, I really miss the "show desktop" taskbar plugin. It seems to be missing from lxpanel. But perhaps I just missed it. I know its available if tint2 is chosen, but I'm not familiar with tint2. Can tint2 create a second panel? About 90% of what I do with a computer involves 10 applications. So five on the "taskbar/bottom-panel" plus 5 on a side panel means I rarely have to wade thru menus. But with 5 or six windows open, sometimes the best way for me to figure out what I'm going to do next is to minimize all the windows and then just open the two I currently need.Therefore, my work environment consists of two panels with one containing a "show desktop" mechanism.
I think "show desktop" has something to do with calling wincmd.so but that's where my knowledge ends.
Any chance it can be installed as a pet, or when you find the time to construct a new version of openbox?

Edit: Vicmz beat me too it by coming out with a new version of Openbox two months before I asked. How's that for being responsive to constructive criticism?http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=86206

Thanks,

mikesLr

mikeslr - I think what you are asking from LXPanel is already there -

Right-click an open area of the taskbar, select "Add/Remove Panel Items" from the pop-up menu, highlight "Minimize All Windows", click the "Add+" button - a two-window icon/button should show up on the panel/taskbar. At least it does for me, on Precise 5.6.1 with LXPanel 0.5.10.

Thanks soo much for the work you've done on these, vicmz! I really have grown to prefer the combination of Puppy/Openbox/LXPanel - light, fast, simple-yet-elegant, and easily configurable in all of the right ways - love it!
