It uses Gtk2desklet (included) for transparency, so no extra compositing manager needed Wink
funcgtkrcCreate script manages font, fg-color, icon theme and pixmaps.
To set some other location of the widget on the desktop, edit the main script.
Suggestions are welcome, then, I know nothing about the code.

Have fun!

There is a mess of confusing stuff on a search for "electrolize"


Is this for 32 bit or 64?
Will it run on Precise 5.7.1?
I could try it but I'm getting wary of downloading now and messing my stable system up.

Edit took a chance and it runs on 32 bit comes up as Mulimedia->PlayMusic_dt

Just plays whatever music files you choose

So Torm do you know where the code is stored at least . Is this a script or what?

It appears to be 32bit only. Is there a 64bit lib file or is the source available so I can compile it?

I don't think there was a 64bit version of the gtk2desklet..
then there may be ( don't really remember, "roaming" at the moment)
source included with the initial package of library here:

then..

please edit "funcgtkrcCreate" script with Geany ( or any text editor ) in the
home folder under my-applications/bin/playmusic_dt/.. , to use any font you like (or have) ...
Or just comment out the line that manages the font, so it will use the system default Rolling Eyes
PlayMusic is a gtkdialog script, that is included with the gtkdialog doc/examples in devx.sfs usually, playmusic_dt is more or less the same thing -with less (minimal) features and a little different look..

I had read somewhere that gtk2desklet is NOT going to be supported anymore in future releases of gtk/gtkdialog. The one who has had posted this information had shown a example of how to do it instead of using gtk2desklet.

Though I can't remember if I had read this on this here forum (probably in the gtk2desklet topic) or at a different place on the web, sorry.

It has worked for me until precise. In Puppies beyond precise, it won't be on top of all windows etc.pp.

Hello.
Looks like it works just fine with latest tahr (at least 32bit, no hardware to test 64..)
What good is "on top"... ?

One can pick a version of gtkdialog, or let the app figure it out
if the preferred version is present on the system or not.
Different versions can co-exist, as far I understand, or will the new version be
conflicting any prior installed? Can't tell if I'd care for Gtk3.0, at this point...

for example:PlayMusic_dt should ask directly for "gtkdialog" , not anything else,
I did not change that piece of the script.

And it sounds interesting, so please share some more info..?

64 bits would run the Music faster Very Happy
64bits for me has an interest only for games, and downloading movies from the web..
I am running Pupjibaro Jessie 64 bits, but if any trouble to use an appli which a need, i will returns to a 32bits Puppy, without any sadness.
I try PlayMusic wit my jessie 64bits, and feed back.
