PostPosted: Wed 23 Jul 2014, 20:07    Post subject:  OB Precise 14.07, Woof-CE build
Subject description: Openbox & Lxpanel
 

This is OpenBox Precise based on Precise 5.7.1, as built by Woof-CE 0.3 with the same kernel 3.9.11 PAE. However, I used gzip compression, which including the additions (mainly Médor's full Abiword 3.0 and special themes, as well as the latest versions of popular Puppy programs att the time) makes the ISO a bit bigger (205 MB). Also, my computer, an old Pentium 4 IBM, seems to boot to desktop flawlessly with gzip puppies, while for xz puppies I boot to a black screen with the cursor and I have to restart X a couple of times to load the desktop completely.

Note that this is my first time woofing a puppy, so take it as an experimental build. At first it had two bugs that had been previously fixed in early releases of Precise Puppy, the glib-compile-schemas and the keyboard setup switching back to English, these are fixed in the ISO presented here. There might be other issues, and although it seems to work fine, I recommend to test it first.

In theory Precise 5.7.1 PET/SFS packages of the forum and repos should work in OB Precise 14.07, there's even 666philb's QuickPet Precise in the Setup menu. If there's a package that doesn't work, you can run the program from a terminal window and paste the result in a reply to this thread. And if you want to install a language pack, make sure it's a version made for Woof-CE builds of Puppy, otherwise many interfaces will remain in English.

(Thanks russoodle)

Idea Openbox Precise has keyboard shortcuts:
CTRL+ALT+W=default word processor,
CTRL+ALT+B=default browser,
CTRL+ALT+A=default audio player,
CTRL+ALT+V=default media player,
CRL+ALT+G=Galculator
CTRL+ALT+E=default text editor,
CTRL+ALT+P=default paint,
CTRL+ALT+K=default spreadsheet editor,
CTRL+ALT+M=default email client,
CTRL+ALT+S=Take a Shot! screen capture,
PrintScreen=Quick screenshot opened in mtPaint.

Sorry, I've just realized there isn't a keyboard shortcut for terminal. Embarassed Thanks to nilsonmorales for providing a quick patch, you can easily add CTRL+ALT+T shortcut by installing the pet attached to this post.

If you prefer ROXTerm instead of urxvt, here is a pet including that patch to define the CTRL+ALT+T keyboard shortcut (after restarting Lxpanel, Menu > Desktop > Lxpanel restart panel, you'll also be able to launch ROXTerm by clicking the terminal icon of the top panel):

Arrow Find more themes in the OpenboxPlus thread:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=86206

If you like dark themes, you can use this pet to match the GUI/mime icons, as in the pictures below (do not uninstall):

https://yadi.sk/d/zBz_lBvKXDm8b

To restore previous GUI/mime icons (do not uninstall):

https://yadi.sk/d/LJJ_Y-vqTgN3x

Idea If you have a wide screen, you may want to set the top panel to minimize when not in use, as in the screenshots below.

La mayoria de programas que pude abrir funcionan sin errores, claro hay que seguir probando.
todo en orden, me gusta la apariencia, aun no se como copiar y pegar desde urxvt, pero me podria acostumbrar.

VIDEO REPORT: OB Precise, version 14.07

Chip description:
VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82945G/GZ Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

Requested by /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Probing Xorg startup log file (/var/log/Xorg.0.log):

El atajo del teclado a la terminal, eso si es importante para mi, claro no vas hacer nueva .iso solo por eso, una idea sería ofrecer un script con el parche para que no sea tan dificil instalarlo, aqui una muestra, el parche dice asi:
Quote:
--- rc.xml 2014-07-23 22:59:19.633305644 -0600
+++ rc-new.xml 2014-07-23 23:25:04.009835532 -0600

</action>
</keybind>
+ <keybind key="C-A-t">

+ <command>urxvt</command>
+ </action>
+ </keybind>
<keybind key="C-A-g">
<action name="Execute">
<command>galculator</command>

ahora el script aplica el parche y seria algo como esto.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
##parche-rc.xml.sh
## agregando la terminal a los atajos del teclado
wget --no-check-certificate https://copy.com/3Wk1jpdC0z0z/rcxml.patch -P ~/.config/openbox/
cd ~/.config/openbox/
patch < rcxml.patch && openbox --reconfigure
rm -r rcxml.patch

Seguro OBprecise va a mi colección.

Hi nilsonmorales, so everything works OK that's good news.

Thanks for the patch idea, I modified some urxvt config:

Code:
--- rc.xml   2014-07-23 22:59:19.633305644 -0600
+++ rc-new.xml   2014-07-23 23:25:04.009835532 -0600

+      </action>
+    </keybind>
     <keybind key="C-A-g">
       <action name="Execute">
         <command>galculator</command>


And turned it into a pet, attached to the first post. After installing, it should be possible to open the terminal by CTRL+ALT+T without restarting X.

For urxvt, selecting the text in the terminal window is enough to copy, you don't have to press CTRL+C for example. To paste, simply middle-click with the mouse wheel, or if the mouse doesn't have a middle button, click by pressing both left and right buttons at the same time.

Now for those who prefer ROXTerm instead, here is a pet (also in the first post) including that patch to define the CTRL+ALT+T keyboard shortcut. After restarting Lxpanel, Menu > Desktop > Lxpanel restart panel, you'll also be able to launch ROXTerm by clicking the terminal icon of the top panel. Do not install the patch attached to the first post if you want to install this ROXTerm pet.

I'm releasing a new ISO tomorrow. I managed to reduce its size to 160 MB, which is more acceptable for a Puppy build. I also included ROXTerm, and I'm updating a couple of Puppy programs. The devx remains the same, I'll just change the name to match the version number. After this I might release small updates as PET packages if necessary.

Good, I've learned to woof. Very Happy But the experience will be complete when I learn to use the kernel kit.
