I'm looking forward to zigbert's util.

Am I the only one (perhaps colour blind) that has problems with matching jwm with gtk themes and/or getting colour/theme/message settings that are functionally usable in practice?

Standard Slacko 5.7.0 - I couldn't read terminal well. htop also a strain (I've set mine to monochrome). For some themes the speaker/internet tray icons night on disappear. Geany orange text is also a strain IMO. But it might just be me - aging eyes.

Another thing I have to more or less do as standard now is install Firefox ZOOM add on. Tiny text on some web pages, OK on others. The zoom util is useful for me in that respect as its a few clicks to zoom in or out and a right click to include scaling of images or not.

Not Slacko 5.7 specific, but in general, when you have flashblock addon acitve and are viewing this message board, do you still see the R1-Soft penguin flash pop up at the top of each screen before it switches to a blocked flash area?

I'm guessing that flash becomes active for a brief time, but if so isn't that a potential security risk? (Some exploit of flash potentially managing to do something before it was blocked).

In Firefox

edit->Preferences->Content->Fonts & colors->Advanced

Change the minimum font size

This affects all fonts on a web page.
Try different sizes until you find one you like.

Thanks BigPup

I was aware and had tweaked those settings already.

I think its just a question of the different web sites I tend to visit using different layouts where the messages and message posting boxes use different fonts/sizes. Such that what's reasonable on one site is small on another (or big on another).

I've established a reasonable compromise, and the zoom plugin also helps.

I have not good eyes too. I've changed only color of the text to white. Former color was to dark for me especialy on dark background.

Yep terminal default colors are to dark (at least for me).
It will be nice if font will be bold.

I have suggestion for partview or system graph applet to add bar for system memory usage.

Edit:
I've found better font for me. In console icon as argument put this:
Code:

-fn -*-fixed-bold-r-*-*-15-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

Everybody can find own favorite font thx to command:
Code:

xfontsel


For permanent change, change line in ./.Xdefaults from:
Code:

urxvt.font: xft:Nimbus Mono L:style=Regular:pixelsize=14

to:
Code:

urxvt.font: -*-fixed-bold-r-*-*-15-*-*-*-*-*-*-*


Edit2:
Default font in terminal looks good on LCD monitor but on CRT bold font is better. And LCD screens are lighter than (old) CRT screens. Besides TTF fonts leaves some artifacts in terminal (small dots). With X fonts i haven't seen any artifacts.

Use
Code:
xfontsel -print >>xfontsel.out
defaulttexteditor xfontsel.out

so it does print the selected fonts to a file.

Subject description: gparted_shell
 

Slacko5.7 (and 5.6) have an outdated version of gparted_shell
which is not internationalized.

Internationalized version is:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
#(c) copyright 2008 Barry Kauler
#2008 Lesser GPL licence v2 (http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/lgpl.html)
#v411 BK: wrapper for gparted, prevent indefinite scan at startup on some systems.
#v424 update desktop drive icons. note, this is also done in /usr/sbin/bootflash, puppyinstaller.
#v424 report that gparted crash with a non-english locale.
#111013 remove LANG=C
#130118 rodin.s: add gettext.
#130722 new method to signal to update desktop drive icons.

export TEXTDOMAIN=gparted_shell
export TEXTDOMAINDIR=/usr/share/locale
export OUTPUT_CHARSET=UTF-8
. gettext.sh
export LANGORG=$LANG

#v424 report that gparted crash with a non-english locale. well, maybe just do this...
#export LANG=C # off for gettext, hope it won't crash

Your code give me an idea to make rox-app for this (only Polish and English locales included).

AppRun script:
Code:

#!/bin/sh
#shell script to manage console app

option=$1

case $option in
        "--font") font=$(xfontsel -print) #choose font for console
                  if [ $font != "-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*" ]
                  then
                      cat /usr/local/apps/console/before.txt >.Xdefaults
                      echo "urxvt.font: "$font >>.Xdefaults
                      cat /usr/local/apps/console/after.txt >>.Xdefaults
                  fi;;
   *) /usr/bin/urxvt;; #just start default console
esac


I will make similar app for browsers (it will try to find installed browsers and generate new .xml file for app menu).

Edit: Added "If" block.

Hi all. New release is really awesome, but how to switch time from 12Hours mode to 24hours mode? And how to remove second ':' after minutes.

For example, currently, time shown as:
Quote:
08:46:


And i need it to be shown as
Quote:
20:46


Take a look




Thanks in advance.

Shutdown app is nice but little slow (slow start, is this problem with svg graphics?) on my old machine so I've made JWM button to shutdown my computer quicker. I've made button for save option too. I've tried to delete save icon from my desktop but after reboot it appears again. So how to delete it forever.

If anybody wants the same option, edit file:

Code:

/root/.jwmrc-tray


and add two lines after Clock tag:

Code:

      <Clock format="%H:%M">minixcal</Clock>
      <TrayButton popup="Save" icon="/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/save48.png" border="true">exec:save2flash</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton popup="Shutdown" icon="/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/shutdown48.png" border="true">exec:wmpoweroff</TrayButton>


And i have an idea to make JWM shutdown button with options from shutdown app. Is there any quicker scriptable toolkit than gtkdialog or i have to code it in Bacon or C?

Edit for curious people: hand on the screenshots belongs to Josie Maran Wink
