Of course.

Tried the latest on Tahr RC and is almost OK.
One thing wrong is that "activate menu by mouse click" does not show the main menu but the last 2 lines (Leave and Help).

Another thing that may be handy is to modify the install script to save the current pinboard so the user may reinstate it without any hassle (Micko's original was doing this).
In Tahr for example you have quickpet that is not "puppy standard".

Can not see this behavior in Slacko, maybe Tahr specific (sound strange). I am downloading TahrPup...

Shouldn't be hard to add

TahrPup is using an older xdg generator.

TahrPup-5.8.3.rc1
Code:
# grep xdg_puppy /root/.packages/woof-installed-packages
xdg_puppy-0.7.6-15-binaries_only-p4|xdg_puppy|0.7.6-15-binaries_only-p4||BuildingBlock|328K||xdg_puppy-0.7.6-15-binaries_only-p4.pet||essential XDG utilities developed by rarsa, binary executables only, /etc/xdg and /usr/share/desktop-directories moved to Woof|puppy|4||

Slacko-5.7.0
Code:
# grep xdg_puppy /root//.packages/woof-installed-packages
xdg_puppy_jwm-0.7.6-16-i486|xdg_puppy_jwm|0.7.6-16-i486||BuildingBlock|24K||xdg_puppy_jwm-0.7.6-16-i486.pet||essential XDG utilities developed by rarsa, binary executables only, /etc/xdg and /usr/share/desktop-directories moved to Woof|puppy|4||

This is the reason for TahrPup to fail setting the height of the menuitems using /usr/sbin/menumanager or /usr/local/jwm_config/menu

I have updated the packages in the main post. This is only minor updates, but includes as mavrothal suggested, a backup solution for puppypin.

Same older version with my precise-ce
I will try to install a newer version http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-common/xdg_puppy_jwm-0.7.6-16-i486.pet

Hello Sigmund.
I'm impatient, but I do not want to put pressure (this is a free project).

Note: do you have a solution/suggestion for 'older xdg generator'?

Regards

zigbert,

I like the new calendar with notes or appointments.

I use calcurse and email (cli) to send emails of upcoming event.
ie. birthdays, anniversaries, appointments.

Could you incorporate an email reminder option to your calendar?

I wonder if it could be a solution to cooperate with pSchedule to set/show actions in the calendar?
