logimax,

I used a stripped down version of Macgic that mostly just has wbar and a background and it worked. I think this version that you tried had an icon image for console that was not actually found. You can edit /root/.wbar and remove this line or fix this by changing it to a correct icon image location of console.

Mine looks like Macpup now. Attached screenshot.

Thanks for Ur response prit1, but nope, it's not that, deleted the line, and it just complains on the next line. repeated and it complains about the next. I even moved the images to /root/ and changed the lines. ie i: /root/osxbarback.png and it is still complaining. It looks like it is not reading t/point me in the right direction, thanks!

logimax,

I think you would have to check if all the paths for the icons and other paths mentioned in /root/.wbar are existing and valid. You can post your .wbar here and we can take a look.

Bugfix concerning Muppyfiler/Gtkbasic:

You must install also:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Programming/PuppyBasic-2.6.pet

The reason is, that wows Puplet contains an older version (2.5) of puppybasic.
Because it is the top layer, the newer one in my sfs is not used.
The PET fixes that.

I also will release a new sfs next year, that automatically solves this issue.


------------------------------------------------
I made some more SFS:
- Icewm
- Gtk-Themeselector with themes
- Mplayer with required libraries in an own subfolder to avoid conflicts.

I currently write from an internet cafe, where I cannot upload files.
So they must wait until january.

I also work on a simplified version of "Muppywmchooser".
This "Desktopchooser" lets you switch from lxde to icewm on the fly, without restarting X.
I'll also add support for other Desktop combinations.
Like this you also can run Icewm without the Icewm-taskbar, but with lxpanel instead (which loads the menu much faster).

The concept is simple:
you do not run the windowmanager directly, but a small script, that loops endlessly.
Then the windowmanager runs as backgroundprocess.
To switch, you kill the wm, and start another one.
As a desktop contains more services, I use "startlxde" and "stoplxde", or "starticewm" and "stopicewm".
The "stop" scripts shut down all tools belonging to a desktop, like "kill -9 `pidof icedock`".

These scripts are accessable by a simple program with some buttons for each desktop.

------------------------------------------
I also tried to make a SFS of the VLC mediaplayer.
But it depends on wxGtk 2.6, that does not work with the Gtk in wows puplet.
I have to recompile it, once I find an opportunity to download wows new development files.
The wxGtk (wxWidgets) also were the problem we had above with XaraLx.
It has those libs statically compiled.
I also tried now a version from Ubuntu Intrepid, where wxGtk is used as shared library.
That also does not work, but is more "informative" to find the errors.
Errors can be shown like this:
gdb xara
run
backtrace
quit
------------------------------------------

Happy Christmas Smile
Mark

Thanks Mark, this seems to fix some bugs with Quickmount also. Prior to this, it seemed to mount some NTFS directories read-only.

Here is my current Ultrapup screenshot. It's still a work in progress.

Doing this caused me to lose all sound. Had to revert to a backup to fix. (Turning up volume in the alsa mixer did nothing) Undoing and rebooting had no effect.

PostPosted: Thu 25 Dec 2008, 13:57    Post subject: Last two desires  

This is going to be my main pup. I have everything looking and working great except for my last two wishes:

1. I'm unable to configure "Application Launch Bars" on the panel. When I add something it flashes and then does not take effect.

2. I need something like "hotpupx" to add live drive icons to the desktop.

0. Start alsaconf while an sound app is running causes that. Exit X and run alsaconf to fix it.

1. Yes, I know (seems to be a problem with this newer glib). You have to edit the config file manually from /root/.config/lxpanel/LXDE/<panel config file> Example: these are few lines from my "/root/.config/lxpanel/LXDE/panels/top" file:
Code:
Plugin {
    type = launchbar
    Config {
        Button {
            id=pcmanfm.desktop
        }

Try to edit or remove any button("filename.desktop" must be in /usr/share/applications) then restart lxpanel (run: "lxpanelctl restart" or restart X )

2. Have you tried to install hotpupx? Don't know if it will work. (It may work if it adds .desktop files to the Desktop folder)

LX Shortcut is working now I had to wrote a wrapper to it and add it to the openbox menu. I will make a .pet tomorrow.

Thanks for the help!!

0. I think I'll leave well enough alone

1. That works, editing the "top" file by hand is good enough for me.

2. Just tried hotpupx (you need the x version because it creates desktop shortcuts in the desktop directory)
however, it does not work. Maybe Mark or somebody will fix it sometime.

LXShortcut
It’s a small utility used to edit application shortcuts.


Installation
Download and install [lxshortcut-0.1-i686]
Unzip [add_desktop_shortcut.sh.zip] and copy to /usr/bin
Now we need to add a new entry to the openbox menu:
Run this command to open pcmanfm's preferences dialog:
Code:
pcmanfm --show-pref=2

Enable "[ / ] Show menus provided by WM when desktop is clicked" and press the [OK] button.
Open "/usr/share/lxde/openbox/menu.xml" with a text editor then add this menu item to the "root-menu" section (line 31):
Code:
  <item label="Add application shortcut">
    <action name="Execute">
      <command>add_desktop_shortcut.sh</command>
    </action>
  </item>

Something like this:
Code:
  <item label="Reload Config Files">
    <action name="Reconfigure" />
  </item>
  <item label="Add application shortcut">
    <action name="Execute">
      <command>add_desktop_shortcut.sh</command>
    </action>
  </item>
  <separator />
  <item label="Exit">
    <action name="Execute"><command>lxde-logout</command></action>
  </item>
</menu>

</openbox_menu>

Save the file. Finally run this command to reload your openbox menu:
Code:
openbox --reconfigure
add_desktop_shortcut.sh.zip
Description  Unzip to /usr/bin

PostPosted: Tue 30 Dec 2008, 20:48    Post subject: All ready to go except printing -solved  

OK, I thought I Was done when I solved the drive icons problem. I finally realized that Ultrapup already hotplugs drives in the media folder and they appear in PCman also. So I thought I was all set to remaster and switch to this pup. But, when I went to add my printer, I found that this older version of Cups and Gutenprint does not support my Canon iP4500. That had never occured to me since Muppy supports my printer. Muppy has Gutenprint 5.0.2 which was the first version of Gutenprint to support my printer.

I hope someone will make a pet or sfs to update Cups and Gutenprint!!

Edit: Solved - found a gutenprint pet that allows me to print!
Hooray, I'm done!
