PostPosted: Mon 16 Jul 2012, 02:04    Post_subject: Make use of any unused multimedia keys.  

If you are using JWM & have spare mm keys that do nothing when pressed:

File to be edited /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal (hidden file)
Add to key bindings section.

EXAMPLES - modify as you see fit.

1. Launch puppy forum index in browser. (Favorites key)

Code:
<Key keycode="230">exec:chromium murga-linux.com/puppy/index.php?sid=9fda08f93c51196c55633d5a0e2d3f37</Key>

2. Open/close CD drive. (Play/Pause key)

Code:
<Key keycode="162">exec:eject -T</Key>


3. Restart X

Notes:
Replace chromium with the appropriate command if you use another browser - look in
"defaultbrowser" or just try substituting "defaultbrowser" which works with chromium.
If the above does not work check keycodes as yours may differ from mine.
To check:
A. Open a urxvt terminal, type xev & press enter
B. Briefly press & release the desired mm key.
C. Use the keycode that appears in the two events (press&release)

Learn to use Rox
http://youtu.be/uakVLQvK6LU
If some of the tutorial looks wobbly it is because I have used Google enhancements to stabilise and brighten the video. I probably took that with a phone whilst using a keyboard and mouse and rambling

Rox is a Puppy gem, originally developed for Riscos (which is being developed once again to run on Raspberry Pi)

Hi all,

Sometimes an application does not include an icon for the executable file. Usually one searches for a suitable icon, a png file, then right-clicks on the executable to select Set Icon then drags and drops the png file into place... done.

Did you know that Puppy will also accept Windows icons... the files with the ico extension? I discovered this fact "by accident" earlier today. The particular package had an icon to set, but it was in ico format only.

Whether intended or not, this "feature" could come in handy the odd time when one is looking for that perfect icon to highlight a program.
