@belham2 and all:

To come back to the subject of remastering, I managed to find not one, but
two remastering utilities by shinobar.

This one had awed me a couple of years back, as I mentioned earlier:

remasterx-1.0:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=780345&sort=lastpost#780345
This one is "intended to replace the remasterpup2,"
It is a "Puppy Live CD Remastering tool."

This one I didn't know existed until now:

mkdist:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=780349&sort=lastpost&search_id=2067918767#780349
This one is a "multifunction file converter useful in making / tuning
puplets up." (This is more of a "tune-up" tool.)

Shinobar provides how-tos for both.

Grab'em! Smile

IHTH. BFN.

@belham2:

About conky being transparent: as I said in the other thread, I use qiv for
this. When i change backgrounds, conky continues to show the background
that was there at startup, so its background does not change to black.

I have to restart the Pup from initial black console (in other words the
sequence xwin -> xinit -> .xinitrc needs to happen) to get conky to reflect
a new background.

[Edit, June 2 2017:]
Of course ROX-Filer and qiv must use the same background. This is
how I get qiv to use the PuppyPin backdrop:

Code:
(c) musher0, 6 oct. 2015. GPL3.
FONDACTUEL="`cat ~/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin | grep '<backdrop ' | cut -f 2 -d '>' | cut -f 1 -d '<'`"
qiv -z $FONDACTUEL
[End of edit]

I believe the problem lies with ROX using its own background layer. (My
understanding.) I never read of a way to have ROX use the "main"
background layer, so I think this problem is here to stay.

It's obvious that technically and logically you cannot stay in Xorg while
recycling Xorg. The latter needs to happen to show a new "main layer"
background.

~~~~~~~~

On the subject of pcmanFm, I think it's ok to get rid of it. To really
complement ROX-Filer, IMO, we need a true two-panel file manager, such
as emelfm2, xfe, or Midnight Commander.

~~~~~~~

My 2¢. BFN.

Hello all.

You better set the error catcher in file defaultfilemanager, like so:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# defaultfilemanager
####
exec roxfiler "$@" &>/dev/null

if you don't want your xerrs.log file to get cluttered, like so:
Quote:
(ROX-Filer:26617): GLib-CRITICAL **: Source ID 2160 was not found when attempting to remove it

(ROX-Filer:26617): GLib-CRITICAL **: Source ID 2928 was not found when attempting to remove it

(ROX-Filer:26617): GLib-CRITICAL **: Source ID 4045 was not found when attempting to remove it

(ROX-Filer:26617): GLib-CRITICAL **: Source ID 8751 was not found when attempting to remove it

(ROX-Filer:26617): GLib-CRITICAL **: Source ID 9926 was not found when attempting to remove it
every time you run ROX.

First time I see this, BTW. I don't know the cause of these errors.

The &>/dev/null stop-gap will do for now. But could one of the Superior
Powers at woof-CE please investigate and try to permanently eliminate the
cause of this error originating from ROX? TIA.

IHTH.

PostPosted: Sat 18 Mar 2017, 06:55    Post subject:  The Dpup Borg Cube is coming after you  

Hi all,

I am near to uploading and releasing my ISO. Wanted to give another teaser taste of what you'll be getting/seeing, especially if you have dual screens. And, yes, after much spirited head-banging, transparent Conkly is back )for now). Unfortunately, though, when transparency came back, Nathan Wallpaper Setter (NWS) decided to give me the middle-finger and stop working. NWS will not change the wallpaper through itself. Only way it now changes if you manually go in and modify the /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin.xml. Grrrrr......the ghosts & goblins of these woof-CE builds are inumerable & becoming legendary, lol. What could now be causing this sudden NWS behavior (or lack of it)?

Still, looking ahead, here's a .desktop image background I made from an existing image. I used two graphics programs, both of which will come with the build: the old standy mtpaint, and then the fantastic Fotoxx for warping & mind-bending things. Also, used JWN theme creator to deepen highlights, and placed the quite nice nice-looking 'Oranchelo' icons to go with it all. Remember, with 43 GTK themes, 28 icon themes, 42 JWM themes and 31 wallpapers, you'll be customizing & tricking the looks of your dpup-stretch to your heart's desires Wink Enjoy this cube for now!

Hi Belham, looks great your preview pic.
Just a small thing, I noticed the big J in conky view, if you put attached openlogos font (remove fake .gz) in /usr/share/fonts and restart conky you'll see the debian logo.

Dang...Fred...lol...I fooled with that for hours and could not figured out what you did. I messed with that first line of conky a lot, but it still was giving the me "J" I finally accepted the "J" must mean Junior, and as in Junior Idiot for staying with this build thing, haha. Thanks for the fix, will get the official logo in later today. Very Happy Wink

While awaiting another dpup-stretch build here to finish, here's a quick (took about ~3 mins to click and set-up) another new desktop look on one of the other dpup-stretches I am running>

I call it the Stretch-Mellon-Yellin-Ooozing-Relaxation look for all you laid, back cool guys out there drinking mangos in the mid-day sunshine. Used Futwerk base bkgrnd and modified it a bit, given the alcohol you all are drinking (It's Saturday!!) Conky is even also accepting the wierd colors nicely, lol. Enjoy Wink

Hi belham2.

Very ugly screen capture above, very ugly! Wink Laughing

~~~~~~~~~

About building philosophy, I'm going the opposite way from you guys: I'm
closer to grey's former "NOP" approach (if it means anything to you.) Or
jrb's approach for the Puppy 4.12 (geez, just mentioning this makes me
feel old!) In other words, I'll try to go minimalist in the main sfs, with a
number of independently loadable sfs's to complement.

~~~~~~~~~

About wallpaper setting:
It's very convenient, but one doesn't have an absolute need for Nathan's
Wallpaper Setter. ROX has its own.
Quote:
Right-click on any icon on the desktop,
click the item second from the bottom in the pop-up menu,
drag a picture into the rectangle,
tick one of the stretch (pun intended!) buttons:
you're done. (Please see attached.)

Sorry for the French, but I've got my octopus Wink +/- 90 % localized now.

IHTH. BFN.

Hi guys.

If you get error
Quote:
FreeType: couldn't find encoding 'iso 8859-13' for '/usr/share/X11/fonts/TTF/DejaVuSansMono.ttf'
or similar in your xerrs.log, open a console and type the following:
Code:
cd /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF
mkfontscale
mkfontdir
fc-cache -r
rm -f /tmp/xerrs.log
and recycle (restart xwin from the black initial console).
Source: file://localhost/usr/share/fonts/default/README.txt Wink

Once back on desktop, open xerrs.log with more or less.
You'll see that the FreeType error is no longer there.

IHTH. BFN.

Awwweeee, Musher, that is so cruel to all the mango-luving, tequilla-drinking people everywhere. So, you're a northerner, into dark moods, and dark ways. Thus, this next one was created with you TOTALLY in mind, the Aurora-like mysterious hues with Canadian brilliant sky wisps of hints and sci-fi Tron aliased by neon, much like the burgeoning lights of Montreal (or Vancouver) in the distance of the forlorn Northerner's eye. Wink

That's very kind of you, belham2! Laughing Near the pole, on Ellesmere Island,
during winter, we Canadians never see the light of day!!! Just like in your
scrot!

~~~~~~~~~

Joke aside, I came back to report that the the autopoint utility is absent from
Stretch. Autopoint is a gettext companion, required to compile some sources.
Case in point, the new icewm being developed on github. You can get a
ready-made autopoint for DpupStretch from here:
https://packages.debian.org/stretch/autopoint
