I think you have $DISPLAY figured out (that if it isn't "", you are in X)

If tty returns "", then you must have run from X from outside of a terminal.

I'm on my Droid or I'd give an example ... Basically put tty in backticks and compare to "" ... Is have to experiment with return values though.

Hmmm... About your uuuuugly snippet.... It seems to work only when running the commands themselves directly in the terminal, but not when not putting the commands into a script... I've put the snippet into a script, elinks.sh, and here's what I get:


For example, here is how I run elinks.sh, and the $TERM that is returned:

- right click in ROX, choose 'Open in Terminal': $TERM=-1-run-in-terminal
- click on it, from ROX: $TERM=ROX-Filer
- load it from within any terminal emulator: $TERM=bash
- load it from terminal in geany: $TERM=sh

and so on....

that code just gives you the shells parent using the ppid (may want to change it from termpid to PPID) if run from rox, the shells parent is rox but it only matters for now if its a terminal (though you may find later that you prefer different behaviour if launched from rox as compared to geany as compared to jwm)

Code:
SHELLPID=$$
SHELLPPID=`ps -eo ppid,pid,comm |awk '{if ($2=='$SHELLPID')print $1}'`
SHELLPARENT=`ps -eo pid,comm |awk '/'$SHELLPPID'/ {print $2}'`

case "$SHELLPARENT" in
  *rxvt|*term)...;;
  *sh)#todo - make getparent function so we can call it again;;
  *)$TERM -e...;;
esac


the problem with geany is that it expects to have xterm's hold, so puppy has this bastardized workaround that runs the script in a "sh -c" so that a hold can be mimicked with an added "read"

the other issue you may find with these is if people test ash vs bash scripts in a terminal.... if they run ash to check for bashisms, then run bash to get "normal" behavior back (instead of typing exit) the stack of shell processes will grow each time such that the parent of the shell is another shell (unfortunately this could also be done from console) or it could be a script calling another script (in which case you would need a terminal if $DISPLAY)

the way around this (and the geany issue by proxie) would be to loop through the pid/ppid code until the parent is something other than a shell.

PostPosted: Sun 19 Feb 2012, 12:45    Post_subject: woof2 updates and patches  

Thanks techno for the info, I'll keep playing with it...
-----------------------
On another note,

I've been trying to get Akita updated and more in-line with the latest Woof2 i18n updates,
so I have download lots of files from Woof2 and have created some patches for each file,
so that they can be installed more easily into Akita....

I've attached the patches, and I will be going through them soon, but
some will not work/need manual adjustments: xwin, puppyinstaller, others...

Scottman, I read on one of your other posts that you were looking at how to lock down Puppy for use in a kiosk.

Is this a project you plan to pursue?

I'd like to have a kiosk setup that booted from HDD but automatically stored any data changes to another partition. ie: all recently acquired data is constantly saved so that it is retained when machine rebooted, but no system files can be changed.

It would be intended to give newbies an environment to learn the puppy ropes, without them having to understand what pfix=ram does etc.

Maybe you have already done something similar?

I have posted a way to _completely_ lockdown a desktop in a separate thread (though its intended purpose was to show the absolute minimum required to boot to a semi-functional desktop) ... I can make a reworded howto if people show enough interest

Yes, I would be keen to look at any methods of achieving this.

I would like to make a basic puppy desktop that cannot be tampered with, and provides a browser capable of viewing Youtube, and with Abiword or Libreoffice in case the user needs to create a document. (Akita and Mijnpup look like good possibilities..)

If it was possible I would also want to include some sort of keylogger or document backup facility so that all of the users work will be saved to a seperate partition if the power goes off or they shutdown without having remembered to save their files.

Boot from CD and save to usb might be one option, but I think it might be faster to have an HDD based setup if poss.

I saw that Scottman mentioned a similar idea on another post so I wondered if he had something like that in mind for Akita.

PostPosted: Sat 25 Feb 2012, 12:44    Post_subject:  Akita Linux beta7
Sub_title: released Feb 25th, 2012
 

Akita Linux Beta 7

This one is very 'up to date' with Woof2, as of Feb 25, 2012.
It also has many custom fixes and improvements.

Download URL: akita-linux-beta7.iso

(md5: d4f6d3e3d6dfee57bb4e6bf982f063c8, 90.7MB)

Devx, for compiling: akita_devx.sfs (sfs3, 88.9MB.. updated Feb 23rd)

Akita is binary compatible with Wary 5.1.x, using the Wary5OLD repo.
Akita also has its own repo. Packages from dpup should mostly be OK too..

But remember, Akita Linux is (for now) still using sfs3,
with kernel 2.6.25.16, just like puppy 4.1, 4.2 and 4.2.1.

A summary of changes in beta7:

- lots of updates & fixes from Woof2 (see Woof2 blog, Dec 2011 - Feb 2012)
- many newly i18n'd apps and new translations
- better NLS system - .mo and .locale ... momanager now in devx
- latest JWM, firstrun, pupsaveconfig, frugal-installer, grub4dosconfig
- many fixes in devx - it's working very nicely now
- better Akita repo PPM updater, now with lists of new pkgs, logs, etc
- around 40 new packages added to Akita repo, in PPM
- many updates and fixes for existing PPM packages
- much better support for e16, xfce, openbox
- customised, standardised Akita versions openbox, fbpanel, lxpanel, wbar, e16
- much improved default setup of elinks browser (javascript works, etc)
- more browsers added to choice in browser installer

To do:

- fix puppyinstaller - it's badly broken at the moment (test it.. or use frugal installer)
- get more translations.. momanager and woof2 should make it easier
- underdog linux
- kernel version fixes (for kernel switch later)
- pxe booting
- better elinks wrapper
- opengl installer
- add dpups Qt to repo, plus lost of qt apps
- updates in woofy
- updates in PERL, check lupu
- fix restartwm/restarx, and therefore, some scripts that use it
- fix momanager: remove some SSS stuff, fix (basename $0) errors, remove 'builtin' stuff

Note to scottman :

I created some new right click menu items to convert audio
files, such as converting a wma audio file to wav

Several languages available.

It should be easy to integrate it into Akita. It just requires ffmpeg
and lame.

It's called conversion_audio-1.7.pet

what does it do that ffconvert does not? (besides not do video)
don't get me wrong, I like simpler solutions, but if we start having multiple multimedia converters, we will see the "too many calculators" rants all over
... so I like adding it to repo, not necessarily the iso

It's just a nice feature.

I've just discovered that lame can convert ogg files as well to mp3.

I found a way to view images from elinks

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/blog/uxrs75-534818/viewing-images-with-elinks-3057/

the same could be applied to other types of media for vlc/mplayer/gmplayer
as well a pdf using mupdf/fbpdf
