I suggest a widget sidebar. Completely separated from the wallpaper. Give it a unique background could make it really nice and much more flexible for different Pinboards. All needed is gtk. Also a sidebar will give only one PID, and that would be running fine on low-powered systems.

Start with gtkdialog ONLY and see how far it would go. The engine would be very simple, and the size would be close to nothing.....

I am sorry to say that I am not motivated at the moment for a new project. My focus is at Pmusic. It will probably last through the winter. Version 2.3 is getting closer, and I have already started planning on 2.4.

I was able to install pwidgets in Fluppy012(and probably 013)
by upgrading to gtkdialog4 using a pet by Barry Kauler.

Available here...

For rendering widgets here's another engine, again using gtkdialog.

I have made slight modifications in Pwidgets code to enable widget support using gtkdialog-desklet (can be downloaded from my last post).

I modified /usr/local/pwidgets/func at around line 61 and 238. Also /usr/sbin/fixwidgets at the beginning. I have attached the modified files.

So Search_files widget had to be modified. I am attaching it here.

Also I am attaching RamGTK widget originally created by 01micko.
mod_files.tar.gz

Thank you !!!

Will have to look at it when I come home from holiday (about a week).

I also see that 01micko has made a weather widget. I wonder if we need Pwidgets at all. If gtkdialog_widgets can store its placement (it is sure possible, I just haven't tested), I think it could replace conky completetly. If so, I see no need to continue Pwidgets ????
- To be discussed. - Please add your opinion.

Is conky the heart of pwidgets? I saw gtkdialog-desklet merely as an alternative widget rendering engine. I am not planning to add anything like main GUI.

If you do wish to continue Pwidgets here are a few points to be noted:

  • gtkdialog-desklet automatically refreshes its background whenever wallpaper is changed, so there's no need to restart gtkdialog-desklet widgets on changing wallpaper or sidebar.
  • The same thing could be done for themes but this is not automatic: the widget needs to call refresh_gtktheme function to refresh GTK theme.
  • gtkdialog-desklet supports option --extra-tags to append options to <window> tags. The widget config file could provide access to that option.


I will be very busy now on, and may come back only when I get a break (maybe in March). So plenty of time to decide.

For my Slacko 531, Pwidgets 2.4.0 displays it as Slacko Puppy 5....3

Is there an easy way to edit it to Slacko Puppy 5.3.1 ?

Likewise for Racy Puppy 5.2.2 shown as Puppy Linux 5....2 -- would be good if I can edit it to Racy Puppy 5.2.2

Edit: After rebooting, it's shown as Racy Puppy 5...2 -- well still two digits.

Hi guys - sorry for the stupid question, but I guess I am either blind or incredibly dumb Razz

I just installed Pwidgets 2.4.0 on my Lucid 5.2.8 install and set up the weather widget for my town. As I'm Canadian, I switched everything to metric and the temp is now in celcius, however, there is an accented "A" in between the temp and the degree symbol. I've read that I need to enable UTF-8 ( http://208.109.22.214/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=587325&sid=9c2f5c724e3885353540266076f5a7ac#587325 )

However...I have no idea where this "Startup" dialog is, so I guess I am crazy, haha! Does somebody mind pointing me in the right direction? Razz

Subject description: Latest Racy and Precise - not running?
 

G'day,

I cannot get pwidgets-2.4 to run fully in Racy-5.2.90 or in precise-5.2.52.
The set-up box opens and I can select the widgets I like but when I click 'Apply', I only see the analog clock.

Trying 'pwidgets' from a console, after picking some widgets and hitting 'Apply', I see some "No such process" messages and librtmp.so.0 seems to be missing.

Subject description: WiFi widget
 

This is my first attempt at a widget.
It combines the reporting of widgets 'Wireless' and 'Downspeed' and throws in Upspeed for completeness all in a small footprint. Also grays out when WiFi is off.
It is tested with pwidgets 2.3, I presume it still works with 2.4

Copy the code below the dotted line into a text editor and save as /usr/local/pwidgets/widgets/configs/WiFi

Pwidgets will then pick it up as an Available Widget

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

#this is a Pwidgets config file
#the actual building of the graphics is defined in bottom of this file, - after 'TEXT'.

#Change wlan0 with your own connection (eth0, eth1, etc) where it occurs after 'TEXT' (13 places)
