compile() {
  cd $name-$version
  ./configure \
    --prefix=/usr \
    --sysconfdir=/etc
  make
}

@ndrancs, do you want retrovol package added into repository? if yes just change maintainer line and add your mail address, also you can set maintainer for all newly created def scripts and packages in /etc/spkg/main.config

PostPosted: Thu 25 Apr 2013, 15:07    Post_subject:  Using the Openbox Theme Manager  

It took me a while to configure my desktop after having installed:

New package: openbox-themes-1.0.2-2.spkg

I struggled to locate the theme and could initially find only Default and Gotham available with further possible modification available of the positioning of the dock through the Tint2 panel.

Finally after trying almost everything I hit upon GUI config and Voila! There it was - a whole smorgasbord of options. Laughing

I am currently using BBstyle as my GUI theme since it gives me the slimmest form factor which affords extra screen space on my 7-inch Eee PC 2G Surf.

Hope this helps others who install the openbox themes package.

Hi simargl,
I plan to add more features to encrypt the savefile like puppy.
any suggestions of where to start.
I think it had to edit the initrd file, right?
to modify some scripts.

Thanks in advance. Smile

in alphaos v5, after first booting, if we type "lsusb" command in terminal. :: unable to initialize libusb: -99

i found that the solution is just to plugin a usb flashdisk, after booting.

Well, script for creating save file is /usr/sbin/makepfile.sh so probably that needs editing or maybe something more. I don't use or need encrypted save file.

Ok thanks, i think initrd must can read/mount a encrypted savefile.

btw, here i made a script for firefox to Run as user alpha.
save this code in file: /usr/bin/firefox-run-as-alpha and set the permission like this #chmod 0755 /usr/bin/firefox-run-as-alpha
Code:
#!/bin/bash
chown -R alpha:alpha /opt/home/alpha
su -c firefox alpha


and save this code: /usr/share/applications/firefox-as-alpha.desktop
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Firefox as Alpha
GenericName=Web Browser
Icon=firefox
Exec=firefox-run-as-alpha
Type=Application
Categories=Application;Network;
MimeType=text/html
Terminal=false
MultipleArgs=false
StartupNotify=false
StartupWMClass=Firefox

Search function improved to show more details, still it searches only by package name not like in spkg_gui by name and description, then it would be too slow.

Added peasy2boot to alphaOS repository, with some fixes to work with new gtkdialog (gtk3),
use yad instead of xmessage and replaced icon (this one is 64x64).

Worked OK in test with Ubuntu 13.04 cd image. Simple and Easy way to make bootable USB stick.
