Subject description: FbBox in Slacko-6.3.0
 

Slacko-6.3.X and slacko64-6.3.X include the gdk_pixbuf library of slackware-14.1. In this scenario, menu icons with the .xpm extension do not resize correctly in fbpanel (see pupMd5sum and snap2 menu icons below). Consequently, 01micko has developed a patch for fbpanel which enables correct resizing of xpm menu icons in slacko.

This gdk_pixbuf patch is for fbpanel in 32/64 bit releases of slacko which are based on slackware-14.1. The patch is not required for other Puppy distros. Note: this patch is optional for slacko since xpm icons are infrequent in the menu and resizing of icons may not be an issue for you (most menu icons are png or svg).

The following pets (available in the first post of this thread) contain a single patched binary file (fbpanel) which will install to the /usr/bin folder:

fbanel-6.1_slackofix_32Bit.pet
fbanel-6.1_slackofix_64Bit.pet

Thank you 01micko!

Just for the record..

Here are the sources found by radky

<-- https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/development/rawhide/source/SRPMS/f/fbpanel-6.1-11.fc23.src.rpm

It contains various patches too.

Attached is my fbpanel xpm loader patch.

To build.

- put my patch with the other patches in the source directory, and extract it with 'gunzip'.

- cd into the fbpanel-6.1 dir and run the following

Code:
for i in ../*.patch; do patch -p1 < $i;done
./configure # plus options as needed
make
# optional but not necessary if fbbox installed; just copy the fbpanel binary to /usr/bin/
make install
fbpanel_xpm_loader_hack_sl14.1_v2.patch.gz

Please, folks, excuse me for noobish quiz but how to change menu button in FbPanel?
Is anywhere some sort of collections of such buttons? Are they compatible with ones for IceWM?

Hi rodocop,

Currently, FbBox supports png, jpg and svg image formats for the menu button of fbpanel, but most of the optional buttons included in the installation are svg. Unlike small bitmap images, the svg images rescale correctly when you change the height of the panel.

In FbBox, the optional menu buttons are in the following folder: /usr/share/fbpanel/buttons

To change the current menu button, click the "Fbpanel configuration" launcher icon, then go to the Menu tab and choose an alternate menu button.

If I understand correctly, IceWM menu buttons are in the xpm bitmap format, but they work fine in FbBox-3.0 if you simply rename them to the png format. The next release of FbBox (3.1) is almost ready and I'll include direct support for xpm images.

In some of the IceWM themes available on the Puppy forum, the height of the xpm menu image is restricted to 20 pixels. Consequently, these small xpm images will appear slightly blurred when resized to the standard 28px height of fbpanel. However, there are many IceWM themes in which the height of the menu image is equal to or greater than 28px, in which case the button will display just fine.

The fbpanel image below shows a 32px IceWM button in the xpm format.

Thanks for your question! Smile

For those who install FbBox-4.0 to a Puppy distro with JWM global theming mediated by ptheme (e.g., Slacko >= 6.3.0), please note the following:

Changing the global theme (while in JWM) may generate an error report if the name of a menu application contains an unescaped ampersand character.

Consequently, in this scenario, please edit line #3 of /usr/share/applications/wmswitcher.desktop.

Change & to and

Open a terminal and run fixmenus, then jwm -restart

Great job, I love this desktop manager. Running it on TahrPup 6.0.5 32bit, and found a nice advantage. Using Guvcview was a problem in TahrPup with JWM because the mouse cursor would jump off the edge of Guvcview's video window when trying to resize it. Fbbox fixed that problem... a whole lot easier to resize using the touchpad now.

Must be the best OOTB desktop I've seen.. !

May suggest installing on "clean" savefolder/install to get the full impression.


Sidenote:
where did I see size setting for launchbar icons? could be usable for non-transparent themes...
