PostPosted: Tue 19 Jul 2011, 16:10    Post subject:  Nitrogen in Puppy  

I grabbed a Debian package for Nitrogen, and it works, but the wallpaper appears to apply "under" the wallpaper set by Puppy's Wallpaper. I am running Openbox.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I could get this to work?

Did you check if disabling the rox's pinboard at x's startup (.xinitrc) fix it?

I don't see any .xinitrc. Where's that at?

Very Happy Hello,
It is a hidden script in /root, hence proceeded by the (dot)..
"Show hidden files" or the "eye" on the rox bar will reveal it..
Messing with .xinitrc can be hazardous.. so...
Test first..
In a terminal:
"rox space slash p equals"
Quote:
rox -p=

will kill the pinboard.. does it solve your problem???

Wow, I feel so dumb now, lol. So I'm guessing what's hindering me from being able to see the wallpaper has to do with PuppyPin? Should I just remove the processes relating to it?

On a side-note, I have urxvt transparent, and it shows the wallpaper set through Nitrogen through it. So does part of Conky. I attached a screenshot.

And, yes, it worked, thank you so much! How can I remove the pinboard from startup without adding an extra script to stop it?

Very Happy
If killing the pinboard solves the problem, then an edit of .xinitrc is the permanent step..
Add the above at the last line...

Or, just place a script in /root/Startup with that same code... Cool

@Edit..
It is just easier to kill the pinboard after all the other stuff has finished..
Wait for the attached processes, ie fixmenus, to load, then do it..
And /root/Startup is very useful for that..

Very Happy Hello,
Just to clarify..
If you edit .xinitrc
After

exec jwm/openbox/icewm/etc...

And before

###END###

LOL, i just had to be more clear...

In D-lite i have pinboard on/off toggle i found it best to let pinboard run in .xinitrc and then disable it after - if pinboard was completely disabled in .xinitrc when pinboard was toggled back on the the applications icons were fine but the drive icons wouldn't show.

What!?
Don't edit it so that it shows a pinboard and then gets rid of it again. Look for where rox is started, and comment that out.

if you have two window manager setups or want to keep the puppy default for backup.
edit .xinitrc to something like.
Code:
CURRENTWM="`cat /etc/windowmanager`"
if [ "$CURRENTWM" = "evilwm" ];then
 rox -p =
 killall -9 absvolume &
 xsetroot -cursor_name top_left_arrow &
 xsri --color=darkolivegreen --color2=black --vgradient
 gkrellm &
 exec evilwm -term sakura -fg black -bg grey -bw 1 -snap 12
fi


it also just starts only the apps you wanted for that window manager Very Happy

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=56205

Code:
if [ "$CURRENTWM" = "oroborus" ];then
 killall absvolume
 #kill rox pinboard
 rox -p=
 #feh background
 eval `cat $HOME/.fehbg` &
 sleep 3 && xbattbar &
 fi

is it possible to make a nitrogen pet that does NOT kill the pinboard but sets the wallpaper IN the pinboard just as pwallpaper and wallpaper setter do?
