JustGreg, I like it when people answer their own questions Very Happy

To move the calendar you have to edit the file /etc/conky/rc_cal and change the alignment variable and the gap_x and gap_y values. It will take a bit of trial and error to get it where you want.

I have noticed that sometimes the clock is on top of everything, when it should not. I think it is a timing issue and by inserting a delay in the .xinitrc file it is fixed.

ie sleep 1 && xonclock &

wosifat: You have an orignal pup_410.sfs file on your harddrive somewhere. Thiat is being picked up first. It is a bad habit of puppy 4.1 in that it leaves these deposits without asking - bad dog.

Thank you, Gray. So gap_x and gap_y are the variables to change. I off to see what happens.

The only things that I have added are:
spell-check addon for opera (it is on the forum under opera 9.62), geany, timesync and sakura. I have to like geany and sakura more than the existing application (leafpad and aterm). Sakura can be made to be transparent just like aterm, but cut and paste are bit easier to do. Geany can have multiple files open which can be handy.

I do like box pup out of the box Wink

Ok, I deleted an old pup_410.sfs file and it seems to behave.
But I can't seem to get dotpups to work. I have to games that rely on dotpups (can't find working dotpets, yet.)

Anyone know what that means?

OK. I think that error comes from some kind of bug in Thunar. Use the repos to add Rox, and try using that. You can always remove it later if you want. Rox seems tightly integrated with Puppy. Using Rox, you must have dotpuphandler installed.

Use Puppy Package Manager from your menu, and install Roxfiler from the official puppy4 set. Give it a few mins, and I will test it.

Nope. Still does not work. Bum! It is strange, because 4.1.1 supports .pup installation, but it seems NOP and Boxpup dont.

I tried a different dotpup, and it worked.
Anyone know of a dotpet for Python 2.5? I'm trying to get PySol to work.

Subject description: A Question and Answer
 

I am modifying Thunar for my preferences for which application to open a file. The Question is: Is How to change the default used by Thunar for opening a file?

The Answer: One can use the open with menu File / open with application and then use the custom command to specify the application. One can use the check box to make the application default. This works ok, but, one can be shown the two defaults, i.e. leafpad or geany. The other way is to edit /root/.local/applications/defaults.list and change the entry for the file type to the desired application. As suggested by DaveS, the best way is to modify the default programs in /usr/local/bin. This works well as does not charge the .wbar entries.

I hope this helps!

You can also edit the 'default' sets of scripts in usr/local/bin

wosifat,

Here is a python 2.5.2 pet on the forum. I have tried it with Puppy 4..1. but not Box Pup. It is on the "to do" list. It should work

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=31558

I hope this helps.

Tried it. Says "bash: /usr/bin/pysolfc: /usr/bin/python: bad interpreter: No such file or directory."
After installing the dotpet, and seeing it listed in the package manager, there's no file that says python in /usr/bin.
No clue why this dotpup isn't working either.
