Hello all.

Those of you who like to work in urxvt instead of LxTerm may wish to
install (edited)
https://debian.pkgs.org/sid/debian-main-i386/rxvt-unicode_9.22-1+b1_i386.deb.html

rxvt-unicode_9.22 has lots of interesting features, including transparency,
ability to associate an icon with a script, and tabs (via already installed
perl libs).

The default urxvt is v. 9.05 from 2008. But of course it's up to you. jlst
did an excellent job with the Dpup Stretch-7, the above is not a criticism,
it's only a suggestion.

Should you get the error
Quote:
‘rxvt-unicode’: unknown terminal type.
trying to run htop, mc, clear or whatever, add
Code:
export TERM=xterm
at the bottom of /etc/profile and at the top of /root/.bashrc, and then
reinit X (your desktop) to get rid of the error permanently.

IHTH. BFN.

Laughing "but it would not compile".

Ok, error messages? Are required deps installed? (libiw perhaps? Shared is best but mikeb reports it compiles ok against static. I suspect that maybe wireless-tools is not included Question as many distros have shifted to other wireless offerings, or perhaps the headers aren't installed as debian et-al have a habit of separate '_dev' packages).

The latest source is at petbuilds at git (includes mcewanw's ipv6 patch). https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/petbuilds/tree/slacko_142/netmon_wce.

Hello all.

FWIW, you may to look at your xerrs.log file for:
-- geany icon errors (this one I don't know how to solve);
-- missing GTK2 engines for your preferred GTK2 themes. For this one, I
have an 718 kB tar,gz archive of 24 if you need them.

Hello mick and all.

About the net monitor, the slacko-5.7 version works fine on my rig.

BFN.

Yeah been busy but may be (maybe Laughing ) slowing a bit.

On the libiw (and possibly other related headers and libs) perhaps headers aren't being found because of different location to /usr/include? (Libs should be ok as there is a symlink to /usr/lib). In the headers case exporting the
CPPFLAGS='-I/dir/where/headers/live'
before running make may help. (as said error messages may be helpful... as all else is a stab in the dark.)

Or use the slacko-5.7 version for now thanks to musher0.

This new Dpup Stretch 7 pretty much offers everything a user may need
and want in a computer system.

To whom it may concern:
Quote:
** (ROX-Filer:30009): WARNING **: No Option for 'session_panel_name'!

when trying to create a ROX side panel. Also the panel disappears when you
hover over it with the mouse and reappears when you click on the backdrop.
First time I've seen such behavior.

Well I booted back in to Stretch this morning and the source from git and also the 3.1 source from the thread now both compile successfully so I don't know what happened yesterday. Sorry about that. Some people have reported issues with the gcc 6 but other stuff was building yesterday. Need to try netmon_wce in place of network_tray now.

Ticking "Panel stays on top" in ROX Options Compatibility panel solves it.

There's approximately 37 Mg's of this in the xerrs.log after a couple of
minutes of trying to do stuff with notecase... Help!

This is the sort of things that _can_ happen when everything is not built (or for want of a better term 'compiled') natively.

Slacko has been in development for several years now and stuff like this still happens.

On occasions it can be an upstream bug but more often than not it is an incompatibility with the compiled version of
the program in question and the upstream libraries.

This is why the petbuilds were developed, in an effort to minimise
this sort of carnage.

It is an attempt to make packages more 'compatible' with upstream so that these types of errors are less frequent.

The goal posts are forever moving so I don't expect that petbuilds will ever be perfect but at least we have a chance at chasing the
target with a reproducible system of building packages. By all means, if you feel inclined, make a fork of the repository and add your
inclusions. Better yet, join the woof-ce team and it can be arranged that you can have write access to the petbuilds repo and create
a separate branch for the dpup-stretch branch (or any other) of puppy. Or I can create a separate branch for dpup (or anything else)
upon request.

Footnote: learning git is a requirement!

So netmon_wce is installed and working, only able to look at ethernet connection so far. The tray is starting to look normal, xload works if I add the couple of lines of code into .jwmrc_tray.

Does anyone else find that xcalc should be called xcrash because it crashes X ?

The MPV media player opens from menu as a window if you tweak the exec line in the .desktop file.

It's beyond me to fix the missing items in the tray but it looks like
they will be fixed soon by someone with the knowhow.
The latest Gkrellm with lots of plugins available in PPM and
it gives lots of info at a glance.
Yes, xcalc is actually xcrash Smile

Hi Mick.

Thanks for the "words to the wise" above and for the invitation to join the
woof-CE group. I'll try to understand how git works once more.

I'll give recompiling notecase 1.9.8 for the Dpup Stretch-7.0a1 a go later
today. Because notecase's versatility is hard to beat.

In the meantime, strictly for note taking, if people are in a jam, there's
-- MyNoteX: https://sites.google.com/site/mynotex (this one is "install and go")
-=>» Except for French users, please see here on how to correct the
"invisible" menu bug in the French version:

https://sites.google.com/site/mynotex/bugs-report «<=-

-- Elephant: http://elephant.mine.nu (same if you already have a java JRE)
I've experimented a bit with the two and they seem quite good, IMO.

But there is no shortage of such programs:
http://alternativeto.net/software/notecase-pro/?platform=linux
Your pick! Smile

BFN.
