i did not realize that rox keyboard shortcuts were not enabled

just add this line to /etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

gtk-can-change-accels = 1

then restart X windows
(reboot or press ctrl+alt+backspace then type startx)

to setup a shortcut key for a rox menu item
move the mouse pointer over the menu item you want
press the key you want associated with the menu item

now when you press that key, it will be as if you clicked that menu item

i don't know if there is a way to unset a shortcut key
but you can do it by setting the key to ctrl+O
then setting the shortcut key for Open AVFS back to ctrl+O

i just found out you can set your config files in CHOICESPATH
maybe that would be better than using the same config files that the older rox uses

i had to split the rox dotpup into 2 parts anyway
(there's a 1 meg upload limit in the forum)
i could have a single dotpup to install rox
and another dotpup for the language files
this would be no worse than it is now

i don't think i can fit the language files and the shared-mime files and the rox files in under 1 meg ... if someone wants to host the dotpup, it wouldn't be much over 1 meg

i found another Set Run Action that is not setup: .sh files

Adding the line 'gtk-can-change-accels = 1' works. Thanks G2.

To unset a shortcut key I press Backspace when the mouse pointer is over the menu item (or simply enter the new shortcut key)

"i just found out you can set your config files in CHOICESPATH

What do you mean?

"i had to split the rox dotpup into 2 parts anyway

Yes yes, there's the upload limit ... forgetful
Embarassed

I like this ROX very much. All I did is change AppsRun for the Trash, by removing the -o in three spots, to stop notices on using it.
Thanks, Kal

uploaded new version of rox 2.2.20 installer

this version sets CHOICESPATH to /root/Choices20
so rox 2.2.20 uses the /root/Choices20/ folder for it's config file and does not use /root/Choices

i put the language files in a separate package

i added some more rox Run Actions, like .tcl

great, heading for it Very Happy

btw some of the icons (e.g. the one for text file) look rather large in 800x600, is it a bug or is it intended?

i usually run Puppy at 800x600
and i add -dpi 100 to xextraoptions

i have not changed most of the rox 2.2.20 options from the default values (some i have)

you can set the maximum icon size in rox, options, display.
you can change how rox displays files and folders.
pressing - and = changes the icon size too.

i think you can set more options by editing /root/Choices20/ROX-Filer/Options (or /Choices/, depending which version you are running)

Thanks, Kal

Actually you don't need to redraw the pinboard. The icon will refresh automatically by changing that line:

replace "rox -o -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin" with
"rox -x $APPDIR"

Hey thanks! I've been gone (still out of town on dial up) and am glad that you found a fix for that. I will upload a new dot pup when I get back to my high speed connection. I would really like Trash to work well with the new Rox.
