pWidgets
Desktop widgets for Puppy
It's a utility to use conky and xonclock as the engine for desktop apps.

Download (username: puppy - password: linux)
pWidgets-2.5.5-486 (213 kb)
pWidgets-2.5.5-x86_64 (233 kb)
- Includes 34 widgets/screenlets/applets and an optimized conky 1.6.1 and all other dependencies.

- Check wiki for extra widgets and more info.
- Quick reference

Note!
If you have looked into pWidgets poor theming, please note that it is possible to make individual themes for each widget. See /root/.pwidgets/themes/Stardust-orange/. Here you see 'main' and 'Ram'. Main theme is used when no individual theme exist.

Special thanks to the pWidget team

Use the conky package linked in the main post. It includes xli.

Too late, already found an xli.pet from petch.

The configs run on my desktop if I run them thru conky in a console.

This is with pwidgets in console trying to start battery:
Code:
05:05 PM ~ # pwidgets
killall: conky: no process killed
killall: xonclock: no process killed
conky: invalid option -- -


No more xli message! Smile

This shows up when closing pwidgets window:
Code:
05:25 PM ~ # pwidgets
killall: conky: no process killed
killall: xonclock: no process killed
conky: invalid option -- -
/usr/local/pwidgets/pwidgets: line 79: /root/Choices/ROX-background.jpg: Permission denied
/usr/local/pwidgets/pwidgets: line 80: Clipping: command not found
/usr/local/pwidgets/pwidgets: line 81: Building: command not found
05:26 PM ~ #


Maybe I'll unload the conky and xli I have and start from scratch with the one in your post.

Mr. Green Been having a play, but can't seem to get analgue clock to work at all. I can't see a config file for it. Same result in Icewm or Jwm. Confused

Yes, I can't get the Analog Clock to display either, although Conky leaves the correct amount of space where it should be. No amount of desktop clicking brings it up either.

so far, though, it is looking JUST GREAT! Thank you, Sigmund. Probably Beta standard already IMHO - the simulated transparent background even updates properly, albeit slowly, even when original is stretched! Cool

Is there any way to remove just one widget from the list, or is that a conky limitation?

Configure button doesn't appear to work for me - does that function for only selected widgets or is it for all widgets?

amount of RAM needed for pwidget and concky is little or can bust many MB of RAM?

Btw, thankyou Zigbert for this cool tool.

Ok, been playing some more, tried to setup pwidgets simply with, "puppy linux", "analog clock" and "calender" in the right hand column. Hit apply,sure enough I had "PuppyLinux 4.10" at the top, a space where analog clock should go, then the calender.
I ran "fixwidgets" in a console and here is what happenned,

these shots overlap, you can see. Hope this sheds some light. Smile

It should run fine on Puppy 3.01, but as Sigmund says it's not tested there yet.

The beauty of Pwidgets is that it is small ... very, VERY small.

Hope that helps

Very Happy Hello,
Yes, it works great on 3.01....

@zigbert,
Dude, this is great..I love the easy configuration, just like Conkey.
One question, how to get it to write to the root desktop?? (Personal reasons)..
This is a winner, the choir sings on....
Hail Zigbert...

No analog clock Embarassed

Pwidgets package did not include the xonclock executable. I have uploaded it again. Download from main post.

Warren

The config button opens geany with the widgets config file(s). Maybe it would be better to rename button to 'Edit config file'.

There is no configs for the analog clock. But you can change the clock by setting another skin. The file is /root/.pwidgets/configs/Clock-analog.png

Mr. Green Works like a treat! Thanks again Zigbert, it may only be eye candy but it will sell Puppy to the masses! Laughing

Hey micko, Like your desktop, I noticed you have 2 shortcuts with ".desktop" attached to the icon name, To get rid of that, Just right click on the icon and select "Edit item" then delete or rename it Smile
