Hi everybody, just asking, as of title, if anybody knows how to create a taskbar button that opens a sort of popup showing some customizable directories...something like the launcher that kde4 has (if someone has seen it...)

You might have to explain what you mean by "customisable" and "a popup".
I use a folder menu bound to button 2. Would it do the trick? You should be able to figure out the code.
(N.B. this is my second menu - the main one is bound to button 1, but I can't remember if that is a default in puppy these days).

This is the code for my folder menu, in /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal:
<!-- folder menu -->

<RootMenu label="Folders" labeled="false" onroot="2" height="16">
<Program label="Filesystem">rox /</Program>
<Program label="Home folder">rox /root</Program>
<Program label="Desktop">rox /mnt/sda1/Windows/Desktop</Program>
<Program label="Alister">rox "/mnt/sdb5/My Documents/Alister New"</Program>
<Program label="Gabriel">rox "/mnt/sdb5/My Documents/Gabriel"</Program>
<Program label="Nathaniel">rox "/mnt/sdb5/My Documents/Nathaniel"</Program>
<Program label="Dad">rox "/mnt/sdb5/My Documents/Dad"</Program>
<Program label="Mum">rox "/mnt/sdb5/My Documents/Mum"</Program>

As you can see, I have the menu attached to a button on a second tray at the top of my screen. This is my code for that tray in /root/.jwmrc-tray
   <Tray autohide="true" x="-100" border="0" height="24" width="0" valign="top">

      <TrayButton popup="Show Desktop" icon="desktop.xpm">showdesktop</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton popup="Home" icon="home24.png">root:2</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton popup="Console" icon="rxvt.xpm">exec:rxvt -sl 3200</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton popup="Text editor" icon="notepad_16x16.xpm">exec: defaulttexteditor</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton popup="Word Processing" icon="word_16x16.xpm">exec: swriter</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton popup="Spreadsheets" icon="excel_16x16.xpm">exec: scalc</TrayButton>
      <!-- TrayButton popup="Opera browser" icon="opera16.xpm">exec:opera</TrayButton -->
      <TrayButton popup="Internet" icon="mozicon16.xpm">exec:firefox</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton popup="E-mail" icon="oexpress_32x32.xpm">exec: defaultemail</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton popup="Drives" icon="/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/drive24.png">exec: pmount</TrayButton>


The root:2 button is the one - I could just as easily put it in the normal tray at the bottom of the screen, just by putting the code for that button between its <Tray></Tray> tags.
