Magerlab, if you look in /etc/hotbar folder there is a script called restart_bar.
The font size is set in that.

How can we prevent Opera (or any other program) to cover wbar/lxpanel/tint/drive icons on Maximize?

@T_Hobbit :

Use the Margins setting in the Openbox Configuration Manager in the Desktop Menu.

PostPosted: Sat 27 Dec 2008, 03:58    Post subject: Cups HPIJS  

Is there a reason why the current Puppy and derivatives use only the Gutenprint drivers in Cups.I find them to be painfully slow with my HP5550 Deskjet printer.With Puppy 4.1.1 I can load the old cups version 0.3 Pet and as it has the HPIJS drivers in it ,it appears to combine with the included one and my printer works well with the recommended foomatic driver. With Box(which is otherwise really good)this does not happen for some reason.Also after doing the above gutenprint doesnt work either.
I have also downloaded the HPIJS package with the package manager but it will not operate with the existing Box Cups Package.
I would love to use Box but without the printer working it is less than ideal.
Any thoughts anyone.
Regards Dennis

Printer problems...
I still need help on how to config an USB printer connected to USB port of my WiFi router (Asus WL-500G Premium).

I just registered to give kudos to gray for creating such an elegant pupplet. I like the choice of software that was bundled in compared with the main puppy linux. I support the idea of using Opera as the built in browser - it already has built in irc,mail rss,note taking and bittorent functionality (and so much more) built in. I wish that the big red O icon for opera was used though instead of the 'globe' icon.

Did anyone figure out that problem with looking for the old pup_410.sfs file? I have stock Puppy41 installed on the HD frugal, and the last time I tried to run Boxpup after saving the session, it loaded the info for Puppy41 instead of Boxpup.

PostPosted: Sun 11 Jan 2009, 12:46    Post subject: How do I add icons or menu items to the desktop?  

I am very impressed with Boxpup and have added some programs running on wine. Everything works fine from the command line but I would like to create desktop icons or menu entries for them. I have tried to send the executables to the desktop but it appears to be locked. Does it come that way by default? If so, how do I unlock it?

Later: I have now edited /root/.wbar so I have that sorted. Smile I have also replaced the Internet icon with Opera icon. A copy is attached below for anyone who wants it. Copy it into /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps and amend the entry for "Internet" to point to it.

However, I would still like to know how to edit the right-click menu on the desktop for additional applications I don't want to include in wbar. How do manual additions affect the "refresh menu" option?

The latest...
Someone finally told me how to get Pysol working, and I'm loving boxpup. Just got a laptop, and want to get a battery monitor in conky, but can't find the conkyrc file. It's not in /root. Where is it?
