Hi guys

If you have looked into Pwidgets poor theming, please note that it is possible to make individual themes for each widget. See /root/.pwidgets/themes/DeepThought/. Here you see 'main' and 'Ram'. Main theme is used when no individual theme exist. All widgets with DeepThought theme are goldish, but the Ram widget are blue.

well, i found a serious bug involving the analog clock in 0.3.
when the analog clock.png loads, the rox pinboard will not let you do anything and the rox filer will not either.

i think it's something in the script for loading the clock.

and i noticed that pwidgets does not seem to like updating itself when you save changes.

these would be good to fix for 0.4. but when a bugfix is made, expect it to be in PupCore, as well as the other DeepThought themes.

- J-Bob

#EDIT: It only refuses to when you have the analogclock.png addon.

i'll remove this in a rebranding, CoreWidgets, if that's fine with you?

actually, it attempts to resize the current active window. which is often the pinboard.

what if you made it run a small program which would disappear after pwidgets finishes loading, like a splash screen. that should be harmless and inconspicuous enough.

what do you thing Zigbert?

I thought there already was such a splash ???

I think the trouble with resizing the pinboard comes from the attempt to fix the rendering of the Analog-clock. 01micko has made a fix for that which uses xevent to auto-click on the desktop to show clock. This might give trouble, and you could try to remove/change the code in /usr/sbin/fixwidgets.

Depending on the speed of your machine and what WM you use you may have to increase the sleep values for xevent. This may fix your problem. You may have to alter the cursor return coordinates as well. I have discussed this earlier in this thread. I'm working on a better fix.
Slight oversight with my fix, there may be problems if you have your task bar at the top of the screen, but that can be addressed maybe in your main post zigbert? My fix is just a basic convenience type of thing designed for JWM with task bar on the bottom with limited testing in Icewm.
Hope that helps. Smile

I think it is likely the auto-click, as it moves the mouse to the top-left and apparently drags it.

i'll do some bugfixing in fixwidgets and once i get it working, i'll upload the new script, if i'm able to.

i'm using the DeepThought theming built by Zigbert. My machine has a 1.13GHz Pentium III Mobile.

I might be able to find a way to fix the error.

@zigbert
i'll mention another thing, it does not show me a splash screen for pwidgets

It would be interesting to see Pwidgets output when you run it from terminal. It might tell me the reason why the splash fails.

I did extensive testing on a slower laptop, but I did run into problems like you suggest. The sleep value is the key. Wink

Have uploaded some files for 'xlideshow'. Pre alpha testing is necessary. Many helpers are welcome! Smile

yeah... I'd prefer adding the actual clicking onto a script which goes alongside the widget. because if that was the case, it would only be a problem with the analog clock.

@01micko
i think a static sleep variable might be the problem, but it's the fact that it causes a problem exactly after the widgets finish loading gives me a hunch it's the xevent not being friendly with jwm.

i could upload a screenshot of my desktop for those that want to know what it looks like.

- J-Bob
(Wow, feels like i might actually be helping with the bugfixing for a utility for 4.2. Well that's good.)

Edit: I should also mention, that i removed the wallpaper roxapp because removing it saves space, and i let rox manage right clicks on the desktop.

I might as well upload the screenshot of my system.
Just in case anyone wonders, this IS what PupCore will look like.

You have a problem with your fonts. The calendar is not aligned. On about page 2 in this thread zigbert has addressed this.
