Bonjour SFR,
Worked beautifully !
Merci,

@uoi:You are welcome. Thanks for testing the fix, I'm glad to hear it works for you. Please note: step (me) and SFR are two different persons.
I'm just curious to know, did you also install the French language pet for findnrun?

- hope you can get this sorted (sort -u)
- version in title again would be nice too.
Thank you.

@L18L:Thanks for taking the time to test 1.10.7 (unofficial). The two distinct .desktop files differ only in the "Categories=" entries: "PackageManager" in one case and "PackageManager;System Application" in the other. Even if the two files were exact copies of each other I would still want to show them as separate lines in findnrun, and let the user sort that out by eliminating one of the files, if so desired.
Version in title - I removed it since 1.10.6 because (1) few Linux apps show version in title (so there probably is a good reason not to do so), and (2) showing version in title makes screenshots look obsolete when in fact they aren't. Currently version is shown by pressing the About button.

I added the ability to search all application properties at once. Without this change, in order to find an application you need to know its "name", which doesn't necessarily correspond to its "command". For instance, try finding "gimp" on Fatdog64. You won't find it, unless you start typing "gnu" (hint). Now with this change you can type "gimp" or "gnu" and find the gimp. If anyone wants to test it before the official release, follow the download/install instructions in this posting, edit ~/.findnrunrc and add SEARCHCOMPLETE=true, then restart findnrun. The help file (press F1) briefly describes this new hidden user preference.

PostPosted: Thu 12 Nov 2015, 19:55    Post subject:  Announcing find-n-run 1.10.7 beta 1 20151112
Subject description: Now with plugins
 

last document update: 20151114
latest delta archive: 20151114

### Announcing

Plugins are a new development for findnrun. With plugins comes the ability to connect new types of searches into the main window. To write a plugin shell scripting ability suffices. So, findnrun expands beyond the traditional "find and start an application" to "find something and do something with it". Please engage in the find-n-run 1.10.7 beta1 test. I especially hope for some people to write plugins, so the new framework can get tested. You can read about plugins here.

There are other new features - see the changelog for details.

### Download - Instructions - Changelog

Find-n-run 1.10.7 beta1 Downloads and Comments

### Reporting Issues - Feedback - Contributing Plugins

I prefer for people to report bugs as new issues on github. Comments and plugins can be added to the github announcement thread. If that is too inconvenient you can post your reply into the Puppy forum Find'N'Run thread.

Hi.

As you may have noticed earlier, I found this Program absolutely useful and used it to create a extended version for my own private and very special needs.

But I'm using version 1.10.6 also as a RoxApp Directory and I'm catching a submitted File/Text/Name.
Code:
# Submitted Application Type like Audio, Video, Graphics etc.pp.
# E.g. for Audio: findnrun "audio-" The '-' will be removed then by xdotool
# called from within a different Script: .xdo-key-right
SUBMITTED="$1"


Then there is the .xdo-key-right Script used to send keyboard shortcuts to Find'N'Run to configure/prepare the search/entry field.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Send Key Commands by xdotool to get a preselection recognized in Find-And-Run
# 2015-09-25 RSH for LazY Puppy
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------

# Wait until the GUI appears on the Screen
sleep 1.75
xdotool key Right
sleep .2
xdotool key BackSpace


So I have some Scripts accessed by a Menu Pipe that I'm using to call easily some of my favorite Programs.
Code:
#!/bin/sh

# Scripts Directory
APPDIR="`dirname "$0"`"

# Scripts Icon
SCRIPTSICON=/usr/share/pixmaps/audacity.png

# Send Key Commands by xdotool to get a preselection recognized in Find-And-Run
$APPDIR/.xdo-key-right &

# Execute Find-And-Run
$MYROXAPPS/Dateisystem/Find-And-Run/AppRun "audio-"


...and Find'N'Run comes up like this...

Note 1: if Option to show all Icons is activated, it needs to run at least once before it works in complete (1.75 seconds are to short either to grab all the Icons), which means, to get rid of the '-', so the GUI will show all Audio Programs e.g.

Note 2: just made a few, very less (I think two at least) modifications inside the Find'N'Run Script to get the submitted "audio-" as default into the search entry/field, e.g.

RSH, I'm glad you like version 1.10.6. I'm wondering if your needs wouldn't be better served by the new plugin feature that I introduced in 1.10.7 beta, details two postings above this one. Your audio search could be a plugin and xdotool would simply need to send Ctrl+n where n is the numbered position of the plugin...

edit 2015-12-08 added below

I extended the plugin framework to more easily support initializing the search input field. Your specific case now boils down to adding this line to ~/.findnrun:
Code:

INITSEARCH_FNRstart='audio-'

You need to download and install the 1.10.7-beta2 delta archive before you can see it in practice, see announcement in the next posting. I hope this new feature will be useful to you. If it won't it's OK all the same; I think it's a feature worth having anyway.
In short, the plugin interface allows one to define new ways to search, alternative file/directory pools to search, and new ways to process search results. It adds hotkeys to switch between multiple searches (plugins). It provides a way to initialize the search input field.

Hi.

Of course I will try 1.10.7 beta 2.

But may I ask first for a little modification of the GUI?

I've done it in each version so far, but now I'm tired to repeat this over and over.

The modification is easy to do by using <vbox></vbox> plus the space-fill and space-expand options for vbox. It will only make the tree widget expanding to its GUI sizes when switching the window's size over to full screen.

This would be very kind...

Of course, but I'm not sure I understand your request. Currently (1.10.7 beta 2) the tree widget fills the main window as much as possible according to window size. Are you saying you do not want that? If so, what do you want (picture please)?

The screenshot shows three findnrun windows, #1 is maximized, #2 is normal, and #3 is stretched vertically by pulling the bottom edge. What other/different behavior are you requesting?

Oh, sorry.

It seemed to be a completely different Application that I had in mind, when doing my last post. Everything is fine. This was exactly what I wanted - but for another program. Embarassed Laughing

I must write down some more urgent notes, when working on Puppy...

"Yes, this is really the coolest Script I have seen since the invention of gnewpet. " RSH once again has a vision that i enjoy. the matter is not the function is already available, but the function is so easy to be used by a newbie, a barbarian, an idiot, a Pelo (to resume)
nos lecteurs du forums francophone sont informés, ils vont aimer.
