Here is an updated fixmenus that fixes the symlinked .desktop files.

Regarding Jims subdirectory mystery, I don't have a solution yet. - I am simply not able to make fixmenus fail with .desktop files placed in subdirs. Jim, can you point me to an app I can install that fails?

Just try Amarok from Quickpet > SFS > SFS Support . That is the application that puts it's .desktop in /usr/share/applications/kde and alerted me to the problem.

I tested the symlinked .desktop files. They now work properly.

Thank you Thank you,

Ok, I fired up Puppy 5 to give it a try.... I don't know how SFS works, but it seems that fixmenus somehow didn't run. After installing a new pet or running 'fixmenus' from terminal, Amarok showed up just fine.

I grew tired of the formatting and features in pprocess so I hacked and compiled the xfce4-taskmanager to work with Puppy (18kb pet) and included the Puppy Control Center as one of the programs it can start (amongst other non-DuDe programs). Currently it is just calling pcc, but if you have some suggestions for improvement let me know.

it is in this thread:

xfce4-taskmanager works great, but what I miss the most is the search-function. I most often know what to kill, but to find it in the list is harder. Especially in the later releases of Puppy/DuDE which have more background processes, and the list in the taskmanager is loooong.

I have personally nothing against replacing Pprocess, but it could also be an interesting weekend-project to improve Pprocess. What are the limitations/weaknesses of Pprocess compared to the xfce4-taskmanager? In the end, - all that we want is a taskmanager that pleases us.

If you find out how to override ctrl+alt+esc, please share. - it would be a logical option to set in DuDE.

We figured out how to make ctrl+alt+delete (not sure about escape) work in 4.2.X if I recall... some other puplets as well

Pprocess is ok for what it is, but I like being able to kill a process or make it "nice" through a quick right click menu instead of having to navigate the cramped right-side menus for each process.

xfce4-taskmanager is only 39kb (just slightly larger in the scheme of things), starts faster and uses fewer resource than pprocess (things that a rewrite won't fix) and it has had quite a bit of development already with most of the bugs worked out and nice little extra features like ram and cpu monitor and preference settings.

How is something like this for a "search" function...?

killall `Xdialog --stdout --inputbox "enter program name to kill" 0 0`

#it won't do tab completion though Sad ... maybe something with find

Absolutely true!!!!

But xfce4-taskmanager inspired me, so I will anyway ship a Pprocess2 with much improved / simplified use. List updates every second, easy filtering, click to kill, moving watching of log-files to pcc, faster startup,

Zigbert, pprocess2 looks good so far - At the rate you are going, you'll have an entire OS GUI written in gtkdialog

You must be psychic or something though. This was just committed:
Quote:
3 hours Make SearchFunc for tree view case insensitivemaster ...
5 hours Use a personal SearchFunc for the tree view ...

I haven't tried it out yet. It does seem that pprocess used a little less CPU
The latest commits also mostly replace the need for top/htop.
The hacks that I added are mainly targeted toward functions to ease transition for long time M$ users. I posted a new & improved version this morning, but let me know if you have suggestions to make it better integrate with DuDE (for instance when starting PCC should I add a parameter to make it go to a certain menu ... I don't often use those functions)

I will upgrade pcc with a new tab 'Processes' where user can watch kernel messages etc. It will also include a link to xfce4-taskmanager or Pprocess. - whatever is available. This is great stuff, - let's put just a little effort in both solutions, and then see what fits us best.

removes connect and trash icons from desktop + any icons you have previously added, so you will need to re add them - also best to change colours in rox filer options.

This starts Pprocess with hotkey Ctrl+Alt+Delete in JWM.
Code:
<Key mask="AC" key="Delete">exec:pprocess</Key>

Will be in DuDE 0.4

Version 0.4
See main post

Not to much new fancy stuff here. DuDE 0.3 worked just fine, so this is more like polishing. The 2 major improvements is URLs in the Favorites menu, and extended use of hot-keys. Read more in the second post.

There are still items in my todo-list, so I will continue to make our dude even better. Ideas and suggestions are welcome.
