Sub_title: It's MY birthday but YOU get the present!!
 

In honor of my upcoming 57th birthday (June 22), I've just uploaded EZpup-2.1.7 to our mirrors. I couldn't wait for Puppy 2.17 and judging by Barry's blog, I may need to update EZpup again sometime after that's released anyway.

PkaG has mirrored here:
http://www.pkagfiles.net/puppy-files/

and MU will advise the location on his mirror shortly.

EZpup-2.1.7 completely supercedes EZpup-1 and EZpup June Edition. Both may be removed and replaced by the latest version, which is still only 15Mb packed.

New features include X11 mouse cursor themes, new wallpapers, and some modified buttons for the Vista_Black_IV theme. I have also included the new Liberation Truetype fonts, a patched Freememapplet and updated the mime-types for Rox 2.6

Cheers

.... and a very small 'issue.' Is there some way to change the pawprint on the menu to 'something else'? Like 'start' or 'menus'? This is a machine that I will use in business travel, and I would like to show puppy off, but it needs to look 'serious.' I think the paw print is not 'in sync' with the rest of the looks of ezpup.. which I really like a lot!

Menu entries are controlled by .desktop files in /usr/share/applications directory. There are entries there for Open Office and its various programs, but they clearly don't point to the correct locations for your version of Open Office. At a console type
Code:
sh-3.00# which swriter
and it should tell you the correct location for swriter. Then find the relevant .desktop file and edit the exec line to show the full location to your files. Repeat the process for scalc, sdraw, simpress, and sbase.

As these files are apparently not installed in a single, standard location, I will remove any Open Office .desktop files from future versions of EZpup to avoid this problem occurring again.

Hope that helps.

The default start button is located in /root/icewm/themes/VistaBlack_IV/taskbar, and can be changed for any one of the others in that same location simply by renaming the desired button as icewm.xpm

Then use menu>Window Manager>Restart Icewm to see the new button. Easy. You can even substitute one of the start buttons from any of the other installed themes using the same process.

Hope that helps.

It is "may be" not "must".

here's how to fix the openoffice icons in EZpup (Updated for EZpup2)

go to /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin
Open as text
Enter the following as a new line, after the line <backdrop style =
Code:
  <icon x="512" y="128" label="sbase">/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program/sbase</icon>
  <icon x="576" y="128" label="scalc">/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program/scalc</icon>
  <icon x="640" y="128" label="sdraw">/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program/sdraw</icon>
  <icon x="512" y="192" label="simpress">/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program/simpress</icon>
  <icon x="576" y="192" label="smath">/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program/smath</icon>
  <icon x="640" y="192" label="swriter">/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program/swriter</icon>

Save

Now to add the icon picture (updated to correct directory)

go to /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/globicons
Open as text
Go to the last line in the file, ENTER a new line between </special-files> and </rule>
Enter the following in the new line
Code:
  <rule match="/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program/simpress">
    <icon>/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/simpress48.png</icon>
  </rule>
  <rule match="/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program/smath">
    <icon>/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/smath48.png</icon>
  </rule>
  <rule match="/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program/sbase">
    <icon>/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/sbase48.png</icon>
  </rule>
  <rule match="/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program/scalc">
    <icon>/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/scalc48.png</icon>
  </rule>
  <rule match="/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program/sdraw">
    <icon>/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/sdraw48.png</icon>
  </rule>
  <rule match="/opt/openoffice.org2.2/program/swriter">
    <icon>/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/swriter48.png</icon>
  </rule>

Save

Restart X Server
Now the icons should appear Very Happy

Thanks, Wolf Pup. As I suspected the problem arises because the 2.20 version installs Open Office in /opt directory. Previous versions were in /usr/local.

I'll look at the efficacy of including these mods in future versions of EZpup, too.

Cheers.

WhoDo,
Your EZpup is awesome!! I was even thinking that now windows users would want to have the same icons!
Maybe it's now time to create puppy themes for windows, instead of making windows themes for puppy!!!!
Thanks a lot for your work!
Guillaume

I forgot to ask, do you know, by any chance, how to change the "quicklaunch" icons?

Anticipating your every need ( Razz ) I have created an EZpup Help page on the wiki. Your answer is in there, under adding shortcut icons to the taskbar which is done using the same file. Cool

Thanks a lot WhoDo!
I'm gonna try this as soon as possible! By the way, I can see we are using the same aeofox theme!
Another question: do you think by reducing the taskbar height of one pixel will solve the little irregularity we can see around the quicklaunch icons or is ot far more complicated to solve?
Thanks

PostPosted: Wed 27 Jun 2007, 16:46    Post_subject: Puppy with ezPup vs Hacao
Sub_title: how to get Hacao's features in English?
 

thanks WhoDo for answering my puppy/hacao questions over on Distrowatch, and Happy Birthday!

but I have a couple more questions Embarassed Very Happy

does ezPup set up Wine/WineXS, CUPS, Skype, Yahoo! Messenger, Java installer and the other extras found in Hacao? The look is very nice but those are the things about Hacao that really grabbed my interest. (The ezpup help page seems to list only GUI modifications.)

if not, does anyone know if is there another "metapackage" or puplet to take care of all that? (I see one called 2.16 NOP, with IceWM, OOo, CUPS & XSane; but not the other features)

thanks in advance
