Kewl Mark!! Hey, sehr danke mein broder! Wink Many thanks my brother! I'd booted into my Muppy 008.3 here the other morning and suddenly---no weather forecast! :'( I was lost without the weather on my desktop Mark! Granted, I don't have this in all my distros, but this and the calendar (along with the Mint-like menu) are just some of the touches that make Muppy the great distro that it is, you know? "Everything at a glance or a click."

Difficult when my wife asks, "What's tomorrow's weather gonna be like?" and I can't tell her at a glance! Wink

Thanks for your persistence in fixing this Mark! You're wonderful! A Six Pack of Guinness whenever you visit me, you hear?

Guten tag mein broder! mfg,

I don't drink alcohol since 5 1/2 years already Very Happy
But I'd love to visit you Exclamation
Must just earn some bucks first, so that I could pay a flight.
Lets hope, that Muppy will bring us some financial success (service contracts) Smile
Then I'd really like to visit Canada, especially if I could meet you, and see and learn about the abenaque traditions Razz

Merci mon frere, Mark

I have set up a mirror of most of wows librarys.
Some I did not download yet, I also left out NLS files, where they seemed not to be important.
I think it is faster to navigate than filefront.
They are sorted slightly different.

http://dotpups.de/puppy3/dotpups/Libraries/Gnome-2.19.2-libs/


Note: there is a more recent and more complete SFS of Gnome 2.20:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=27864

I just update these older libs 2.19.2, as some of them are included in the current Muppy (0083), and because they include NLS (localization).



Libs-1-and-Panel
Required in any case, give you a simple Gnome-Panel.
See here how to integrate Puppys menu:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=25925

Gdesklets-need-Libs1
As the name says, the gdesklets.

Screenlets-need-Libs-1
Those work only with compiz.

other-Libs
If a program needs one of these...

Libs-2-and-Anjuta-need-Libs-1
I currently try to compile the IDE Anjuta.
It uses a newer version of Glade, than we have in Puppy 3.
And lots of common developer libs.
I will continue later, have a meeting today.
So I cannot promise yet, that there will appear a working version of Anjuta. At least the libs might help you in some cases, it took 2 days to sort out and compile them.

If you need a current version of gstreamer, look at this post for exaile:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=28866

Hello all,

I really want to gget this working in my fatfree puppy. I have read and reread the full thread and am a little lost.

I am not sure which parts and d'loads go with gdesklets and which are for gnome bar? etc. I am easily confused, no news here.

So, I have d'loaded gDesklets...pet and all the pets listed under required in wow's original post. I also d'loaded MU's fix for goodweather.

Is this the correct packages to install to get gdesklets installed correctly? If not, or if a simpler way is known, please help, it will be much appreciated.

Once I get the right stuff, I guess I should start installing the required pets first, in the order listed? Do a few, then reboot and continue, right?

Then install the gdesklets pet and check for dependencies? Does it matter which wm I am using with regards to the install and where gdesklets puts the taskbar icon and if it gets a listing under menu/utilities/gdesklets/? I am using icewm via EZPup along with wbar and hotpup.

Thanks in advance, Chris.

Mark,
In reference to the above post, your dot pet would not install. I ran it and it gave the "Installed successfully" message at the end, but Good Weather still did not work and when I looked in my package manager the dot pet did not show up. Confused
Anyway, because your post was very detailed about what exactly the dot pet did I was able to simply make the changes to the necessary file and get my Good Weather application working on both of my machines. Thanks a million.

Hello all,

OK, I sucked it up and installed all the pets, rebooting after several. Must have gone good, I got the icon on the taskbar and an entry in utility.

I d'loaded the calendar tar ball and got it installed and pretty much configured. I have done some looking around, but I did not see the obvious way to have gdesklets start automatically after rebooting.

What code would I use and would it go into rc.d/rc.local or .xinitrc, or ???
Please help me get this next step completed.

I will probably add the clock widget also.

I would like to replace conky with a couple of widgets. I think I would like to have cpu,ram,swap usage and possibly a couple others. I looked through the archived desklets, but I am not sure what to get since they just have the name and no illustration.

If you would be so kind, please make some suggestions as to what to use that you know works with this version of gdesklets.

Thanks in advance, Chris.

None of the above. You should use /root/.icewm/startup which can be edited from the Quicklaunch menu on the taskbar. Here is my code:
Code:
killall gdesklets shell
sleep 2 && gdesklets shell &

The gdesklets shell will manage which individual gdesklets run automatically.

Hope that helps.

I inserted the following into my .xinitrc
Code:

# Start gDesklets applications.
sleep 3 && gdesklets &

Not sure what the difference is. I guess my question is for WhoDo. Does it make any difference? Should I call the application from /root/.icewm/startup.
Everything seems to work as is. I am not sure if this is just a case of "there is more than one way to skin a cat" or if you have a good reason for not calling the application from .xinitrc
