Subject description: Launcher Dock Wbar-2.3.4
 

Many moons ago I believe CatDude put out a simple *dock* pet.
By that I mean, an app launcher that looks similar to Mac's dock.

I've no joy in searching for the .pet.

CatDude, if your are out there, am I remembering correctly?
If so, may we have that .pet again?
Remember, 'no' is a perfectly good answer.

The dock is for Precise Puppy 5.7.1.

Thanks for the memories. Smile

Sky

Very Happy Hello,
Why not wbar or cairo-dock?

Subject description: wbar dependency
 

Hello Puppyluvr,
Thank you for the quick reply.

I found both wbar and cairo-dock in Puppy Package Manager.
I downloaded wbar as it appeared the least confusing to download.
(PPM search for "cairo-dock" shows a page full of puzzling downloads).

Wbar shows in my root as *wbar_1.3.3+dfsg2.files /root/.packages/wbar*.
There appears to be no executable.
Dependency that is missing for wbar is: libimlib2.so.1
Where do I find libimlib2.so.1?
PPM search of all repos says it's not in the libraries.
Perhaps I have libimlib2.so.1 spelled incorrectly?

Hi.

I have downloaded libimlib2_1.4.4-1build1_i386.deb automatically when downloading xjadeo_0.6.2-1_i386.deb from the package manager a few weeks ago.

If it is gone, I can attach it (195K). Just let me know.

RSH

Thank you, RSH

Here's what the search of this Precise-5.7.1 shows.
Did I correctly enter the file name?

Usually when searching the package manager I would just enter 'imlib'.

Just try the attached .deb and let me know if it works.

Edit:

Btw.: it is a fake .gz file.

Subject description: Attempting download of imlib
 

RSH
Thank you for your patience. I am new to downloading and unzipping .gz files.

Is this helpful?


I downloaded libimlib2_1.4.4-1build1_i386.deb.gz to temp and attempted to unzip.
I saw no change anywhere.
see screenshot

I then searched PPM using 'imlib' and installed libimlib2_1.4.4.
I activated wbar through console and received the following message:
see screenshot.

Subject description: Iguleder's downloads?
 

I've located this reference to a *wbar* download by Iguleder with the imlib files.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=72513

I will delete the PPM download of wbar and your imlib download and PPM download of imlib.
then
I will try Iguleder's approach and get back.

EDIT: Thank you RSH.
Iguleder's suggestion I'm sure is good.
A *wbar* GUI box did appear but ...
I'm at my end attempting to figure this one out.
I'll sleep on it and see if something comes clear in the morning.

Hi RSH,

No apologies, please. Very Happy
I greatly appreciate the assistance.
I was hoping for a simple download.
I'm spoiled with how easy Puppy .pets usually happen.

What is a 'fake .gz file'?

Just rename it (remove the '.gz' part from its name).

One can not attach .deb files to the forum.

Yes you are mate, it was Wbar

Remember, 'no' is a perfectly good answer.

The dock is for Precise Puppy 5.7.1.

There is a package available here:http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=90332
it was compiled in puppy precise,
and the screeny below is it running in 5.7.1 (in vbox)

That version you are messing about with (1.3.3) is quite an old one,
i would suggest you try the one in the above link.

Hope that helps
CatDude

Hello, Sky Aisling.

For the record, you can create a dock bar very simply, with no download, just by
adding a few lines to your file /root/.jmwtrayrc.

I'm including mine, for you to play with, and a screenie. Just back up your own
beforehand.

Enjoy!

Note.
In the script, "<!-- Deuxième barre, en bas au milieu de l'écran -->" means
"2nd bar on the bottom at the middle of the screen".
You can put it on top at the middle if you wish, easily, just by changing the
y parameter from y="-1" to y="0". BFN.
