And attached is a tarball of my latest proxy-setup, along with the 'bacon' compiler and 'hug.bac' that I used.

Apart from testing the layout, if anyone who is interested in supporting internationalization, I have included 'proxy-setup.pot' -- you can use this to create a proxy-setup.mo file for your language/country -- send it to me and I will include it in Puppy -- in fact, it will be in Woof, so in all Woof-built puppies.

I have created a web page that shows how easy it is to create a .mo file from a .pot file:

Dear Barry,

The main screen looks perfect on my machine. The only little infelicity is in the closing message box, where the OK button abuts (pardon the pun) against the text above it. I changed the dimensions of the second message box to 400,120,0,1 and everything was fine.

With kind regards,
vovchik

I had to increase the width of mainwin and label_hdrx by 40 to get my translation legible and had to change size of message box to:
yes_dlg1=MSGDIALOG(INTL("..."),500,150,0,1)
no_dlg1=MSGDIALOG(INTL("..."),500,120,0,1)
I have been varying 'global font size', too and here is how it is looking on my screen (1280x720) now. Confused

Thanks for the feedback.

L18L,
Puppy has default xft dpi set at 78, which is a bit low. Most Linux distros use 96. So, it is very unlikely that anyone would want to change the setting to less than 78. Test with bigger values, such as 96.

is looking good so far with 96 dpi.
The input fields have to be moved to the right, of course.

And thanks for the statement

Subject description: Can we support FTDI USB IO, and how is this done ?
 

Barry, Peter, Vovchik,

I have been following this thread with great interest, since I am a great puppy lover (since 2.17), but have never taken the step to do anything else than assembly language, a bit of bash, and (in the early days) basic.

Your joined effort to get BaCon working in Wary made me decide to drop Puppy 5 and install Wary 5.1.1 with success. Installed the devpack, and downloaded hug.bac. Using NicoEdit.
And I have been programming since, taking Barry's proxy program as a reference. I am impressed, and would like to use this configuration for my hobby (model railway automation). In this I need digital IO. One of the options for this is USB IO chips like the FTDI range (I own a few FT245BM modules).

But I have no clue on how to add the drivers for these USB chips to the BaCon environment. There is a Linux library (1.0.4) for Mandrake 9, but that would (probably) need re-compilation for Wary ????

http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX.htm

And even then, how can I access this library from BaCon ?? Do I use the EXEC command ?

Can someone help me ??

The proxy-setup BaCon program saga continues!

Attached is the very latest. It also needs the very latest BaCon. My PET has /usr/lib/hug.so, which makes GUI applications smaller -- 'proxy-setup' has dropped from 115KB to 50KB.

Recently there have been significant refinements in internationalization and also refinements that enable us to create windows that always layout correctly regardless of DPI/screen/default-fonts.

The attached proxy-setup.bac demonstrates these recent advances. Peter is the guy who has done all of this. I have reported problems and Peter has responded immediately and fixed things.

Note that the attached tarball has a readme that explains a few more things.

My latest BaCon PET:

I have written a HOWTO that explains how to get good layout always in a window written with HUG:

http://bkhome.org/bacon/hug/layout.htm

It needs the latest BaCon, 1.0.22pre. I posted a PET here:

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02182

If anyone has any thoughts how the layout HOWTO can be improved/extended, please let me know.

This may come in handy for a quick font size check
or a quick message or to test different fonts
it can be run in the terminal " as is"

many possibilities with markup

Joe

Code:
pango-view \
 --font="DejaVu Sans 12" \
 --markup \
 --text 'This is a DejaVu Sans 12
 output on a X screen'
 
 
 pango-view \
 --font="DejaVu Sans 24" \
 --markup \
 --text 'DejaVu Sans 24
output on a X screen'
 
 
 
 pango-view \
 --font="DejaVu Sans 44" \
 --markup \
 --text 'This is a
 DejaVu Sans 44
 output
 on a X screen'

no idea why this was double posted.
sorry.

Edited again Tue 29 Mar 2011, 10:25
I have seen it on page 19, too.
Now it is not on page 19.
Confused,

Changes are commented in source and readme file.

PostPosted: Tue 05 Apr 2011, 06:09    Post subject: bsplash = bacon-based splash program  

Dear Puppians,

Having seen the nice job that 01micko did with gtkdialog-splash, I decided to create a little splash program in bacon that can display animated gifs, jpgs and pngs, with a message in you choice of font and with window decorations or not. It also has a duration parameter, and the splash can be killed by clicking on the image. I have included a binary, test images, source, the latest HUG and a bash example program. Just unpack and click on the "bsp" script. It should work. For maximum compatibility, I compiled in Puppy 3.01. If you run bsplash without parameters in a terminal, you will get a help screen that explains all the flags and arguments. Also look at the bash script. If you look at the bacon source, you will see that I call two gdk functions to get the size of jpgs and pngs, but use the unix utility "file" for gifs. This is because the gdk routines do not deliver the right dimensions for a multi-image (i.e. animated) gif but "file" does. Sad

With kind regards,
vovchik

UPDATE1: I updated the attachment and added the capability to display the following file types: bmp, jpg, jpeg, jpe, ico, png, icns, wmf, xpm, xbm, tiff, tif, ppm, pbm, pgm, pnm and pcx.

UPDATE2: I updated the attachment and added a placement parameter for the main window (i.e. -p "80,80"), so that the window will display at those x,y coordinates. I also hide the program from the taskbar when in non-decorated mode.

vovchik ,

You've done again. This time making a big splash with animations and image variations. Smile

Very nicely done.

Now for the following little item--

The pacing cat keeps nicely in it's window but the text does not -see below.

Everything else seems to purr along Smile Smile

Regards,

Dear seaside and abushcrafter,

Thanks. Seaside, just edit the bit in bsp and add a font and size. It defaults to DejaVu Sans Bold 14, and I am sitting at a big monitor now. But just change the bash stuff in the invocation!

Abushcrafter: Yeah, I will have to put in some keyboard controls. Give me a few suggestions....

With kind regards,
vovchik
