I had the time lately to give Blinky the love it deserves, so I added some stuff and produced the 0.8 release Smile v0.8 handles better the computer redrawing, has -v (or --version) command line argument, features an enhanced option window and forces it to open only once, and generally is a lot cooler Cool .

Please upgrade Blinky to v0.8 in the next Puppy (1.0.9 / 109 / 200 or whatever name it shall get Laughing ), thanks!

Thank you, lior2b.

When using previous version of Blinky I tried to change the background color to:
Code:
blinky -bg "#EEDFCC"

but it stays gray.

I tried Blinky 0.8 in Puppy2a-11apr06 and it solved the problem. Cool
I mentioned the solution in Puppy developer forum:

lior2b Nice job!
Nathan has already added it to Puppy 1.09 I believe
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Puppy109

Which will also have:

    Firefox-1.5.0.1 with Puppy bookmarks
    Leafpad default editor
    Geany as second editor, Beaver removed


Cool

Leon, Puppy 1.0.8 and Puppy 2 previews use Blinky 0.6 which doesn't have this feature... I'm glad you updated and got the wanted results Smile

Lobster thanks! It means that JWM will be in 1.0.9 too? If so, upgrading to the latest JWM should be on the list too! (I hope JWM 1.6 will be released soon)

There hasn't been an official resolution to the issue of which window manager will be used, but in order to make some progress we're moving forward with JWM. As of right now it's version 1.4 with Blinky 0.8 but JWM may get the upgrade as well. I've been rereading through a bunch of posts (many of Lior2b's) and working to improve the default configuration first.

I got a request, if Blinky can be used in Icewm-ultra.
It required only a slight modification, to run as "eggtrayicon" instead of as Gtkwindow.
This trayicon now can be used in all windowmanagers supporting trayicons (KDE, Fluxbox etc.).
Just 4 lines in blinky.c were changed.

Binary and source:
http://dotpups.de/diverse-tgz/Blinky-0.8-patched-trayicon.tgz

Extract for example to /root
Add this to your startupfiles (.xinitrc for other windowmanagers or /root/.icewm/startup for icewm-ultra):
/root/blinky-0.8-patched-trayicon/src/blinky &

To deactivate the inbuilt connection-status of icewm, edit /root/.icewm/preferences.

Replace
TaskBarShowNetStatus=1 # 0/1
with:
TaskBarShowNetStatus=0 # 0/1

--------------------
I compiled it in Puppy 2.10, tell me if it does not work in older ones, then I will recompile in Puppy 108.

Hi Mark,

Tried to run Blinky as suggested but it doesn't want to play. I'm using Puppy 2.02CE.

Cheers,

Warren

The solution was to use Blinky 0.8 Smile
But presumably any recent puppies will already have it?

You pass the parameter to blinky in startup as follows:
Code:
sleep 3 && /root/my-applications/blinky-0.8/blinky -bg "#ffffff" &

That's from memory but you get the point. Use the -bg to set the background to the following color code.

HELP! I can't get a transparent background. I am doing this, but have to be in trouble somewhere else in the coding. Where should I start to look??
