Speed indeed..I clocked up 4 times faster from puppy 1 to puppy 4 doing a mass copy operation in rox so its not just library load times but execution too.
Yes I believe it was an early xfce4 engine that was used to improve scroll bars.

Cleaned up my "dev`s download utility".

And now it continues a broken download automatically.

All ok.
Tested it on http://412collection.co.uk

Code:
# ./xdlg.dnldprogress gimp-2.4.5.pet http://db.tt/fesQujV6


The console output finished a couple of seconds before the dialog box - which is better than the other way round though.

Yeah, I had the dialog calling wget, but it made more sense the other way around.
It seems to keep working at a site rather well until it the download is complete.

As I said, lots of developer utilities like this should be made. ( I have a mirror selector also )
Then developing user apps and system apps would be a cinch. Just glue the parts together.

What..!!! No progress bar..??? Laughing
Looks really good Mike, and the console output from wget too.

I`m thinking a full blown downloader with features like yours in GtkDialog.
Then it can have the usual LabelBoxes for speed and ETA. There`s already so many though.

Well tis about 4 years old or more... no sexy progress bars around which would make a much neater result. In fact I want to neaten up my dropbox uploader and such a thing will do nicely. At the moment it opens a terminal window but to me a gui wants a gui style of feedback/monitoring.

This maybe of some interest, technosaurus posted a dropbox uploader which has a progress bar. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=597239#597239

Mike; It`d make a nice SpaceFM / MidnightCommander type Filer. Do downloads also?

Now if there was just a true tree panel to be had, a replacement filer for Rox could be made.

Does most operations...upload, download, new folders, delete, get public link.... no need for the dropbox software or even a browser. Does indeed work like a 2 pane file manager.

Have you not played with gtkfm?

I think I`ve seen it before, but like SpaceFM I passed on it as I want a Win. Explorer type.

I used Norton Commander for years 20 ago, but a tree for the left panel is so much better.

Well its 2 small bash scripts...gtkdialog3 and curl so should be compatible.

I will make a thread in the software section as there are a couple of TODO's to deal with (confirmation boxes, non public folder share links and somehow selective files rather than single or folder) plus if anyone bothers to give feedback that would help too.
