Hi, folks.

Already an update. This one is good for monocores.

The only change is that the full path of the opera history file is searched
only the first time, and then saved to a temp file. The next times, the
script looks for this temp file instead of doing a full find procedure. It
saves a couple of seconds every time, in other words the menu shows
up immediately after the initial run hic-cup.

Notes concerning the pic.
* If you've cleaned your opera history, this is how the menu will look.
And that's fine.

* If you create or edit a "new" pic with mtpaint (if mtpaint thinks it's new),
the name of the pic will go in Miss X. Belle's log. So here you have two
mentions of a defaultmediaplayer picture, one from Miss Belle's log, the
other one from mtpaint's history. And that's fine.

General note :
I still need translators for those strings. Anyone hearing the "calling"? Smile
Thanks in advance.

BFN.

no response from script on a precise 5.5 install (earlier version just correctly opened a docx file)

musher, is the browser history part necessary? the browsers themselves can manage that... i'd rather have access to recently opened files and folders regardless of their classification...

not sure if that makes your workload any easier, though. so xbel doesn't list all you've opened or visited? ...guess it's sort of interesting to see what i was looking at the last time i used opera...

...take it back. it just popped up after a big delay. it's much slower than earlier versions but it's asking me about run actions, which is an improvement...subsequent activations are quicker...isn't aware of many existing set run actions or they've been lost some how...will fiddle around with it more later...

Very Happy

...appears to be working flawlessly in precise 5.7.1...and precise 5.5.

performance in 5.6.1 is much improved, but it still seems to not keep track as well as in 5.5. or 5.7.1...some recently visited files (.xbel and .xml) didn't show up on the list...and it warned me it wouldn't work if i didn't have opera set as my default browser. no such warning with 5.5 or 5.7; i suppose i have chrome set as default in the former because that's what it used to open the links...pretty sure the other two are set to firefox...nope, 5.7.1 is set as seamonkey...links didn't show up as an option in 561...maybe it's a firefox thing (that one is definitely set to FF as default browser).

on the subject of browsers, i think a favorites section on the list would be better for most users. the history part is largely redundant and this way you get to set five or so home pages; comment the script so that users could just enter their choice of browser and site in the appropriate space. it makes it feel more like a tool and less like something that's checking up on you that way.

my two cents. i'm already pretty pleased with it. gave it an icon (going on the menu eventually) and everything.

Many thanks for the feedback, Puppus_D.

I might just remove the "not-opera" warning... If the default browser does
not have a +/- plaint text type history, I might just skip the section. Then,
there will be less question marks blinking above the user's head.

Adding a favorites section is already possible in aragon's take on aemenu
(he called it "Simple Puppy Menu 3" [not sure about the version number,
it's been awhile]). Maybe I could import / adapt that.

So it would become a "Recents and Favs" panel, eh?! We're getting
windowish, now, aren't we? Very Happy

Nice thought, psychologically, adding a "Favorites" section. Thanks for the
idea.

TWUL.

you're welcome for the feedback, musher. i like the script and use it often. i have discovered, i think, the reason why it seemed to perform so inconsistently for me at times--it can't handle files or folders with spaces in the name. is this correct?

i was about to write that the favorites aspect can be taken care of through "editer ce menu," but the text editor just failed to open when i clicked it on my 561 machine. doesn't have that problem on the precise 5.5 and 571 installations...

Hmm... You have an "Editer ce menu" entry in your Recent menu?

The script is supposed to recognize the LANG variable of the user.
If you have en_US or en_UK, etc. the entry should read "Edit this menu"...

Please do an
Code:
echo $LANG

in a terminal on your machine and tell me the results. Thanks.

I should have a "Tower of Babel" machine.... But I know only
English and French. Shucks. Smile

made an icon for your script, musher0. bleu, blanc, et rouge in honor of your province and my favorite hockey team. transparent background, r and d for recent documents. easily converted back to invisible template with mtpaint for any who like the script but not the icon.

Hi, Puppus_D.

Thanks for the icon. How do you download it? It seems to be embedded
in a flash thing? Opera says it can go back or forward, but not save it?

In any case, I appear to be idle, but I'm not. I have had power supply
problems on my back-up computer. I learned to unmount it and clean it.
It partially worked (the heat went down), but I finally decided to install a
brand new one because a shaky power supply is a fire hazard. Learned a
couple of things in the process, including demystification of the power
supply box! (It's so easy to change when you know how!)

Back to "Recents": I don't know how useful that would be, but I was
thinking of adding the recent bash history as well, so that the user can
recall terminal scripts and such.

BFN.

i was thrown off on how to download an image from google drive at first as well--the interface is different for some reason. you should be seeing a down arrow in the upper left--that's what you click to get the option to either download or (sometimes?) open with an external program.

the separate script entry is a cool idea--i actually found myself opening scripts with geany to be able to activate them from your program--as long as the script's permissions are set to execute, it works. i haven't yet tried to shift + click them to see if they open as text, which is default rox behavior, if i'm not mistaken. a separate entry makes all that all easier and more intuitive, so go for it. the more you get into puppy and use it, the more you see how great these little additions are and the more you come to rely on them (and the more they pile up). a user who hasn't yet gotten into the habit of scouring for convenience, so to speak, wouldn't be adversely affected. other than the work you personally would have to do, i see no downside.

Smile

and you're welcome for the icon--thank you for the script.

Hello, using xfce now. Some xfce puppies have the MRU, but not Carolina-Vanguard-R2.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=96863

Anyone know how to add it? The MRU menu is available in the xfce places plugin, which is available by itself, or (i believe) part of the xfce goodies package.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/recent-files-in-xfce-711915/
http://goodies.xfce.org/projects/panel-plugins/xfce4-places-plugin

Anybody know how to install either the places plugin or the goodies package on Carolina pup?

EDIT: Never mind, it's already available in the "Places" panel widget on Vanguard Smile

Thx!

Subject description: Completely Redone!
 

Hello all.

Please find attached a completely redone script to display and recall your
most recent files and directories.


In this version, I focused on files, but in so doing I discovered an easy
way to also access a good many of the directories we have used recently.
I tried to illustrate that in the screen captures.

A lot is new:
    -- use of vovchik's remake of aemenu (with pango, which allows colors
    and spacings, and not only various fonts but also various weights and
    sizes of fonts.

    -- presented in sub-folders (please see screen caps) instead of in one go

    -- help message and description

    -- some theming -- from dark to clear and vice versa

    -- calling of GTK-chtheme as needed

    -- harmonization with my Weather-in-the-World and DefaultMenu scripts
    (but you don't need those two other scripts to use this MRUF/MRUD utility)

    -- access and display of the bash history in less. From there, you can use
    less's "bang" feature (shift-!) to recall them in a less window, on the spot

    -- access and display of the mtpaint history

    -- apps contained in the "xbel" history presented in their own sub-menu

    -- possibility to clean up history files from: "xbel", mtpaint , bash, even
    the old opera (+/- v. 12.16), independently from one another.
Speaking of browsers, I looked for a way to access the history files of
the Mozilla family of browsers from the outside. It's possible, but requires
a sqlite engine, which I thought was too involved for a simple script like
this. The moral of this story is that the best way to clean up your Firefox,
Pale Moon or SeaMonkey histories is from within those browsers, IMO.

Please test and tell me what you think. Although I invested a lot of time
and research in this script, there is still room for improvement, no doubt.

About the pet archive:
-- AFAIK, all the dependencies are in it.
-- At installation time, an icon for the MRUF-lst script is placed
automatically in the middle of your desktop. You can then drag it
wherever you wish.

Finally, a word to WhineDose refugees: all things considered, this script
does a good job, IMHO, of jogging your memory and Puppy's, about your
recent ramblings. But do not expect it to behave in a way even remotely
similar to the "Recents" utility that exists on WhineDose. It's a different
approach, and... Linux IS NOT WhineDose!

Enjoy! Smile

P.S. The 0.6 version that was here has been updated to the 0.7 version,
which is on the next page, 3-4 posts down. The general appearance has
not changed however, so the screenshots are still valid. BFN. musher0

Morning, musher0.

'Recent documents' is not something I ever made a great deal of use of, back in my Windows days.....but I can see it would have its uses!

Coupla questions, if I may?

1) Which window managers does this work with? I primarily use either JWM or XFCE, although I do have one that employs Openbox; ETP's 'Chromebook' Pup, v.1.

2) Does this work with all file managers, or just ROX? I'm thinking of Thunar, y'see.....mainly in rg66's X-series, of which I use X-Slacko and X-Precise.

Thanks!


Mike. Wink
