WhoDo,

OK, that did it! I have rebooted a couple of times and blinky is behaving itself. Thank you for sticking this out,Chris.

Cool You're welcome, chris. Looking forward to seeing a screenshot of all your hard work appearing on the new website.

Cheers

prit1,

I have been using your plogout and it is the ticket. Thanks. Very Happy

Today, I needed to exit to prompt and found that the command in plogout did not work. I searched the usual places and found the restart, poweroff and reboot commands, but could not see, or at least recognize, the command for exit to prompt.

Looking in plogout, I see you used exitprompt. Any idea what this command needs to be in puppy 301?

In /usr/sbin/plogout, lines 5 thru 15 show the buttons and show their color. The first four say color(219) and the last is color(1). If I want to change these colors, I would change the 219s or 1, right? What do these color numbers correspond to? They are not rgb, and I am pretty sure they are not hex either. So, please educate me, again. Very Happy

Thanks, Chris.

@wolfwatcher51: Chris, I think "exitprompt" was a script and it must be somewhere in /usr/sbin or /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin. Check these directories. And copy this script over to 3.01 and it should do the trick.

Color codes 219 must be for the different options available and color 1 should be the exit button. I just got to it by trial and error. I am not very sure of all the different values.

I checked for exitprompt in the directories you suggested. I also checked in /usr/x11r7/bin and no exitprompt. I also used pfind for exitprompt and exit prompt but no files found.

If you click on the puppy start bar, it opens a list of choices. One is exit to prompt, which works.

In windoze you can right click a file and choose properties. How do I see where exit to prompt button in puppy points to? Right clickdoes not work.

Thanks, Chris.

@wolfwatcher51: Actually you can create a new script under /usr/sbin called "exitprompt" And all you need in that script is

Code:
#!/bin/sh

killall X

Chmod the file to 755 to make it executable.

Now modify the plogout script to call /usr/sbin/exitprompt.

Hello Big Bass,

EDIT woops...I ran the recovery pet.

Actually I had a ffpuppy install good to go until I ran the jwm [repair] pet, thinking it was for something else, big mistake. Messed up my puppy. I have another thread on it, but it seems to have run out of steam.

So, in the mean time, I renamed the pupsave file in the first ff and did another ff puppy install to another partition. Basically, starting from scratch/fresh.

After several tries, and erasing the pupsave file each time to get a fresh start, I got the above packages installed. Looks good and works. Only problem is the two gear icon on taskbar and it's window that opens very small at reboot. Is this the jwm entry referred to in another thread, where they had to make a fake bar in jwm or something like that?


What do you suggest I do now? Thanks in advance, Chris.

you used the recovery pet and your system had problems?


logically if you replace modified files with the originals from the live CD
and that makes it worse your problem is elsewhere

I did not write some special script I just copied the original files from the live CD
to overwrite any modifications that could have been written to your configuration

a simple look with tkdiff will prove they are the original unedited files

thanks WhoDo for the wbar and ice help

also all testing of themes or experimental jwm configurations
should be tested puppy pfix=ram
that would save you alot of time with problems
because debugging is isolated to only what you install at the moment

P.S I really like the the themes that WhoDo did and all of his pets/pups have worked correctly on my machine
