PostPosted: Thu 29 Nov 2007, 18:12    Post_subject:  Questions about Pizzapup  

Trying out Pizzapup and am impressed with it's look and speed just running it in ram. The application menu seem kind of small though, how do I enlarge it? What is the package manager in this OS and where would I find it. Apparently, this distro is supported with Slackware? How would I find what programs are available in their repositories and install them? Thanks.

-package manager click start menu/setup/puppy package manager

also for slackware package manager you should install Gslapt you can get it here ---> http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1114787840&t=21908

Also puppy software install is another nice package manager you can get it here --->

I think pizzapup uses icewm?

In that case, edit /root/.icewm/prefoverride

Here is the one from Muppy008:

Code:
# Font Specification

TitleFontNameXft      =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15:bold
MenuFontNameXft         =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
MinimizedWindowFontNameXft   =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
ActiveButtonFontNameXft      =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
NormalButtonFontNameXft      =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
ToolButtonFontNameXft      =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
NormalWorkspaceFontNameXft   =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
ActiveWorkspaceFontNameXft   =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
QuickSwitchFontNameXft      =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
ListBoxFontNameXft      =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
StatusFontNameXft      =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
ToolTipFontNameXft      =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
ActiveTaskBarFontNameXft   =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
NormalTaskBarFontNameXft   =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
ClockFontNameXft      =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15
InputFontNameXft      =   Bitstream Vera Sans:size=15

MenuIconSize=16
SmallIconSize=16
LargeIconSize=32
HugeIconSize=48


This might work in Pizzapup, too.

Tried your command and a number of variations and couldn't get the same result.
Any other ideas? Once I do get the result you've shown how would I adjust the setting to get a bigger start menu? Thanks.

What you are after is a icewm problem and the puppy main resident who is a guru of icewm is whodo, I would say he is an expert on icewm and maybe you could ask him, here's a link to his main questions/answers page.
