Thanks for the themes!

I found another XP theme I think some people will really like. Maybe you would like to try it.

http://themes.freshmeat.net/projects/lunadothome/

(The fonts were a little small for my tastes on a 1024x768 screen so I made them each 1 point bigger)

PostPosted: Fri 20 May 2005, 03:56    Post subject: Question about uploading files  

I wanted to upload some command-line productivity utilities:

* dict - online dictionary
* look - look up words from a list
* ispell - spell checker

The problem is the dictionary for ispell too big to compress less than 1 MB and the forum limits uploads to I MB. Any suggestions?

This is an updated Midnight Commander dotpup package with some new features:

1) now you can easily extract .RPM, .DEB , .PUP and .DSL packs (among others) to subdirectory by just pressing F2 and ENTER

2)a nice icon in My RoxApps folder to start it

3) new menu items that help you to build dotpups

4) pressing ENTER on any file open it on leafpad

if your package is larger than 1 meg, you could:

upload the package somewhere else

ask Barry or John if they will host the file for you on one of their websites

make a dotpup package that downloads a binary file package from somewhere and installs it

split the package into 2 or more pieces

in any case, i have the same powers and priviledges that everyone else has ... if i have a package that's too big, i have the same problems with it that anyone else has

Splash Screen for Internet Browser

this puts an icon in my-rox-apps
click the icon to run
delete the icon to uninstall
drag the icon to the desktop to make a shortcut

clicking the icon should launch your internet web browser
(Mozilla, Firefox, Opera)

a splash screen should popup immediately, useful for impatient people with slow computers

How do you make it choose a different browser if you have more than one? Say you want Dillo to pop up. I suppose I am missing something obvious.

you can edit the script and make it do whatever you want it to do

right click the icon, select App Dir Internet, Look Inside
right click AppRun, select Open As Text

to make it run dillo, put this line:
exec dillo "$@"

after this line:
`dirname "$0"`/splash > /dev/null &
(this line pops up the splash screen)

to make it run opera, put this line after the splash line:
exec opera "$@"
(if is in your path ... but you can type the full path)

if you have firefox 1.0.4 installed on hda11, a line something like this should execute it:
exec /mnt/hda11/pup4/firefox/firefox "$@"

there are ways the wrapper could be made that would let you choose the default browser

there's also nothing to stop you from copying the appdir and having one for each browser, with a different splash screen and a different icon for each one if you like ... for example,
http://tinypic.com/5cx4xy

i used a blue E as an icon and called it Internet because many people think the blue E IS "The internet", not just a particular http protocol web browser program ... i had a nice Mac OSX icon on mine, but i thought it might not be free of copyright problems, so i put in the Gentoo icon ... you can change the icon, it's inside the rox appdir, a hidden file called .DirIcon ... just copy your icon there and rename it .DirIcon (some icons don't work ... sometimes they will work after running them through xpaint or mtpaint)

Ok, thanks g2, will add this to my elderly friends computer next time I visit. He's already broken of the blue "E" habit so dont need to reintroduce unnecessary evil. Just use existing Firefox icon.
