Bruce,
I am running Lucid 520 frugal install and I copied and pasted your code into geany, saved it and made it executable. But even though it shows the initial screen, the buttons that use zenity fail to work.

That brings me to the question of if you are using zenity or yad with a system link to it called zenity.

Also, what flavor of Puppy are you using?

Ok, I found the problem.
I use zenity as in the script.
You are using yad and the parameters you passed although supported by yad, are not supported by zenity.

8-bit

I am using Lucid Puppy 5.2.5.

There are two missing apps on my system used in system_info.sh
kdesu
glxinfo GLX/OpenGL info

Where would I get these two apps?

This is still a great application even without those two functions.

-Bruce.

To get the glx/OpenGL info to work, you have to have a proprietary video driver installed that uses glx./OpenGL.
I have the nvidia driver installed and part of it I assume installs the gktinfo command.

I am only guessing here as I did not write the original script and only changed the action commands that did not work with Puppy.

And as to the kdesu command, I assume it has to do with a version of linux that uses the KDE desktop and su in other versions of linux is short for switch user.
You could also ask about Kate. I also have no idea what that is.

My only exposure to linux has been through using Puppy so I am somewhat of a dummy as far as other linux releases go.
