Picker - File Acrobat

It's hard to define what Picker is, but I have put it into the FileManager menu.
It is an advanced file-finder, it does basic file management, the indexer views my 20000 songs in 2 sec. But it's main target is to build a file-list that you can freely act on. - Play music, Save playlist, view pictures, copy files, send to burner, execute command, watch video..........It's nearly endless how Picker can manage your files.

Picker-code is one doze of Pfind, plus a bit of Pburn, and then some File-Acrobat spice.

Picker-0.3 (19 kb).

If using Puppy 3, you need pfilesearch

If using Puppy 2, you also need the latest gtkdialog-0.7.20

Hello zigbert,
Looks like another great app!
I tried running it in Puppy 2.14 and got these error.
I tried creating the missing file in /tmp but each time i did, it appears to claim another file is missing. any ideas on getting it to working?

For Puppy 2 you need the latest gtkdialog 0.7.20

ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-3/gtkdialog3-0.7.20.pet

I don't think your error-msg is critical. It changes because the file gets its pid as extension. This makes it usable when running several instances of Picker, which is often useful.

I get this after using the button to open files in an image viewer, but i'm not sure if there is something strange about xnview causing it:
Code:
/usr/local/picker/picker: eval: line 549: syntax error near unexpected token `('
/usr/local/picker/picker: eval: line 549: `** XnView v1.70 Copyright 1991-2005 Pierre-E Gougelet (Sep  6 2005/15:28:24) **'

Confused If you don't know what it is - what chance have I got. Laughing

I tried it in Dingo but Xine was not present (this seem to stump the green arrow button . . .)

Is it a universal media viewer?
a media file manager?

I know this is something good. What though?
Maybe those playing with it can explain it?

Many thanks as always Smile

I don't get this error on my system. I use Puppy 3.01 and gtksee. Please test some more, and let me know if you find that the error belongs to Picker.

Yeah, this is good. To be honest, - This is the very best app I ever made, and I'm soooo proud of it Smile Personally I got 2 targets when I made Picker.
1. The structure of Pfind has its limits. To make a more complete file-finder I had to make a new gui.
2. Puppy misses a decent music player. Gxine is ok, but is not good when you want to build playlists. Picker is excellent for making playlist, and since there already are apps that plays the music, I didn't have to make a complete musicplayer.

Hope you find your way in the Picker-world.
Sigmund

1. What is the "squeeze" thing? - nothing seemed to happen when I tried it.
2. Is there a good reason for not being able to add directories? It would be useful to be able to add directories, the only trouble might be that although it would be useful to add a directory itself, other times it might be useful to add the contents of a directory recursively...

Hi Alister

Squeeze equals is to be used when you got more than one item in list of the same file.

Directories in the filelist gives us a lot more trouble. Commands to act on list had to check all the time whether is was a file/symlink or a dir. It is possible to think of a solution like Pburn which stores both a list and a symlink directory. - If adding a dir, you also need to dive into it. But I don't think it will value the pain. Instead I have been thinking of rebuild Picker to a musicplayer. That is one of those black holes that are left in Puppy (as I see it). But anyway, it has to wait. Maybe in september. Then I probably got some time.

Sigmund

PostPosted: Thu 31 Jul 2008, 16:30    Post subject: Picker in Puppy 4 Dingo  

Hello Zigbert,Picker seems to do a fine job of finding every incidence of a program I have been trying to get working called "Rosegarden"
I have worked on this program for some time (newbie) and came to realize with Pfind that I have occurrences of "rosegarden" all over this distro.Puppy 4 Dingo running live.My desire is to find all these occurences and globally DELETE every one of them.This would give me a fresh start because I am almost certain that anything I try to do will be corrupted if I don't get rid of all these entry's.Is there a way to do this in Picker or on the console ? thanks,bill

I can't remember if there is in Picker, but in Pfind you can either delete everything in the list, or send it to the trash. Have you looked through the menu in Picker?
