Pwidgets 0.7 is much improved but I eventually had several widgets open but only the clock displaying. Maybe I need to do an x restart . . . Nope - not that. It seems something to do with the refreshing of the program . . .

Code glitch in Pwidgets-0.7 ... trio is on to it in the Pwidgets thread.

I would urge going for Beta (you get more testers and feedback) if possible on the next release - the feature set is there?

Pretty much. David McClamrock is working on a package for inclusion but features are mostly set now.

I believe the 100MB is a good idea and I feel we will get a 4.2 Barebones provided (maybe from Wolfpup) usually within a few days - this would enable two official versions?

It's currently 96Mb but that's without CUPS. We'll need to shoehorn that one in before we get to RC stage.

Butttttttt pmount is still broken for my sata2 and also when I click preferences it crashes. (I like the single row, not the tab version Wink )

Pmount hasn't been updated AFAIK so there has to be a dependency issue. What does it say when run from a console and the preferences is clicked?

also that damn 'insert key' problem is back!!! Funny when I compiled seamonkey it was fine and now its back, I read somewhere it was a gdk issue

Did you compile with debug enabled? To quote from Robert Duval in Days of Thunder (talking to a stock car with a leaking tranny) "This is not the answer I expected from you!"

a free memory applet goes, I've never seen it leave the IceWm taskbar, I compiled it on series 4 and its been stable ever since, I've seen it fly off jwm tons of times but never icewm, I guess we could put a long delay, and have it tested.

It's a timing issue. I've had it in Icewm plenty of times and it's always resolved by tinkering with the sleep settings on startup. I think there are so many applications vying for a start (what with Pwidgets, XonClock, Xpad, blinky, freememapplet, Parcellite, etc) that something has to clash with something else sometime. Reducing the number of autostarting apps is probably the best solution. I'd take Xpad and Parcellite out of the autostart equation if it was up to me. Disabling the net and cpu activity blocks in Icewm would probably also help and give us a cleaner task bar and system tray area. Idea

this is all the info pmount gives me when I run it via command line
/pmount: line 290: 19889 Terminated yaf-splash -font "8x16" -outline 0 -margin 4 -bg orange -text "Puppy Drive Mounter

That's all normal. So when you have pmount running and click the preferences it just quits with no other error or indication at the cli?

yes it just disappears, and when I click on my sata2 drive it just disappears and doesn't give any newer messages.
as for the timing on icewm goes, I'll get rid of the net+cpu status and xpad, no problem and maybe increase free memory applet, It don't have any issues on my pc with icewm but I do have a fast pc, maybe on older pc timing could be a issue. Its hard to fix things like that when you don't have the problem in front of you. But could we hold off on killig parcellite please and keep it as a last resort. It takes almost no memory and its my most beloved program Smile

@ttuuxxx

I will definitely give it a try, but I'm at work for the day and will be late home today so it may not be for another day and a half.

Where would you prefer feedback - here or in another thread?

I wasn't talking about dumping it ... just not autostarting it. Rolling Eyes Getting rid of the status blocks and Xpad may be enough. We'll see how that goes. Wink

Thanks Nick it will be a good start, I guess we can have the responses in thread, that way maybe others will see it and join along Smile
If it gets over blown which it probably won't Then maybe a thread.
thanks once again

Yeah, it looks good. Shocked According to Barry's blog, Hairywill has taken on maintaining and hacking JWM for woof as well. That could be good for JWM and us. I don't know how old Patriot's alpha is, but you'd think the maintainers at JWM would want that out there with features like that. Confused

Hey WhoDo do you have a printer? maybe try the cups package if you do Smile
I would like to get the ball rolling on this cups thing. You see the printer I have is a Canon pixma ip5200 with a ciss. but cannon only made drivers for ip4200 and well I can configure around 90% but can't print do to the lack of proper drivers. The latest Gutenprint doesn't full support either grrrrr.
But I can do all the configs, just can do a paper test.

Hi

Latest geaney 0.16 is nice and seems much faster than previous
version on my ram challenged laptop. (91mb ram & 1ghz celeron proc.)

Very Nice

Question - went to change wallpaper and the View (preview) option did not work in either JWM or IceWm.
Have changes to viewers been made that could have had an impact here?

Was working in 4.1.2 but I did not try in 4.2 before now.

Hopefully nothing serious.

Best regards - Ray

I just tried the wallpaper setter and it works fine.
/Menu/Desktop/Wallpaper Setter and the location of wall papers is /usr/share/backgrounds
but the pre-viewer doesn't because we don't have gview installed

If you do file preferences you can see that the imageviewer is set to gview, it should be gpicview. Either the code needs to search for a number of picture viewers or possibly it should be set to defaultimage viewer.
