PostPosted: Sun 08 Dec 2013, 13:41    Post subject: Urls to some package repos
Subject description: remove the false zip ending
 

Hi all,

Occasionally, when I think of it, I'll add to a web-browsing folder I called "packages" a link to a repo I've stumbled across. In no way is it complete. Absent, in particular, are all the links to pets posted in "Additional Software" with links other than to repos. Some of the links are to mirrors. Some may be broken, to repos no longer in existence which I haven't pruned from the list. And it may not be what you're looking for. But I've attached it. Hope it helps. Remove the false "zip" ending. Its a plain text file.

BTW, why did you remove your post with the pet links after getting to all the trouble to assemble it Confused Shocked

I did not remove it.

For some reason the text in that post stopped showing up after doing an edit.
I can bring it back up if I select the edit button. Exclamation Shocked

Does anyone know what is happening here?

I must be hitting some kind of post length limit. Shocked

could have been this:

Quote:
disappearing posts are usually the fault of a link - [url] - with a space in it at the end....


Anyway. That thing was getting kind of long.
Edit:
Deleted some of the entries and re-posted below.

I havent been that practical. But...I could try to remember to make a note, now on...

One pet I would like to see woof compliant is that rox right click pet maintained by don570. The pinstall.sh script in it has about 1000 rows, so...I havent started to do that.

Just tried rox right click pet maintained by don570 in the test Woof-CE build of Slacko 5.7.
Worked for me OK.

At least my list made it easy to download and check the program.

Maybe we need a specific topic on programs to have available in the Woof-CE repository.

PostPosted: Fri 13 Dec 2013, 05:56    Post subject: Move desktop mouse controls from button 2 to button 1  

By now, many/most of this community, probably already has a smart device. These are characterized by a touch interface.

Microsoft rewrote Windows from the ground up to provide API and development guidance for its latest operating system (OS) releases. One of the primary ideas is about the behavior of the display's behavior when touched. In reality, when you step back and understand, they are really treating the touch as mouse button 1 (left-click) to launch action(s). While, also, honoring the industry standard of "long-pause", too. And there is other behavior subsequent also.

This community's distro developer, TaZoC, understood this behavior and chose, in his distro to do a simple change of mouse behavior on the desktop. In most every PUP, today, if you click mouse button 2, you will get a pop-up. He moved that pop-up function to mouse button 1 such that it allows ANYONE with a touch screen to navigate the PC by touching anywhere on an open area of the desktop. Also, the finger's touch has other behaviors that include how traditional mouse button1 behaves. Thus, a touch PC user, can manage much/most of desktop's activity with your finger.

So here's a thought that I ask distro developers of WOOF-CE to consider.
  • Would the overall community benefit from this simple change?
  • Since mouse button 1 does nothing for any user of most every PUP), Is there a known downside to making this change?
Please understand that this ONLY APPLIES TO MOUSE CLICKS ON OPEN AREAS OF THE DESKTOP. It does NOT apply or affect any other such as right-click utilities already in use in PUPs.

This does NOT address all of Touch use in Linux. But, it certainly gives a portion such that it advances usability in system's navigation. And a manipulaton at this level means all PUPs would benefit.

Here to help

The incredibly poor usability of windows 8 touchpad friendliness was one of the reasons I removed it from my laptop....My 20 years old daughter ( win os 8 ) laptop user called me and asked where is Skype in her laptop !
She couldnt find it because of missing menu and incredibly useless touchpad friendly system to launch apps....read: it absolutely sucks !
I suggested her to use 'search' app...and she found it. So...if you know you have some app...use search...and it find the app and you can lauch it....and that is usability ?
Win 8 was really hard and crude economical driven forced push to gain share in tablet markets and it forced win 8 also as os in laptops.....where it does not belong...and nobody wanted it.
Market forces for tablets...and lousy one...nothing else.

win8 is bad win8.1 is worse.. now it takes 3 changes to get to a desktop the start button is a overlay and near worthless.
Videos are suspect if not MS typed. long pause before playing. And if you play a OTA HD TV capture in .ts format it writes the activity to protected files. requires you to attach to NST servers for actual time stamp sync of your activity. Shocked

Win8 hid non windows setup hardrive parts. On win8.1 it will display used linux parts as unformatted and prompts each time for reformation. One accidentally pressed mouse click and linux is now been assimilated in the borg collective of Win8.1

Hi, mavrothal.

That's a URL, not code, isn't it?

Best regards.

Picky, picky... Very Happy
but is actually code since you must type it in the terminal in the context of a specific script to clone therepo.If you just paste it in your browser instead of cloning the repo you just go to the woof-CE github page.
