My 2c

I particularly like disciple's ideas #1 and #2

Cheers

PS... Pmusic-6.5 runs sweetly with progress bar, while running MU's Puppy Browser browsing the web in the Dino Wink

________________ Howto make your own window preset ________________

This info is partly outdated



Pmusic 0.7.0 introduce window presets. Pmusic can be set up more individual.
Default, Pmusic is loaded with the Default graphical theme and the Default Window preset. Pmusic shows like this only a small part of the available modules.

Let's say we wish to extend the main window with the toolbar module and the mixer module. In /usr/local/pmusic/presets/ you'll find the 'Default' file. This contains all information to build Pmusics default gui. Lets add toolbar ($GUI_TOOLBAR) and mixer ($GUI_MIXER) and save it under a new name. All new preset files in /usr/local/pmusic/presets/ will be added to the window menu and in the preferences.
Code:
GUI="
<window title=\"Pmusic\" icon-name=\"gtk-media-stop\" default_height=\"$HEIGHT\" default_width=\"$WIDTH\">
 <vbox>
  $GUI_MENU
  $GUI_TOOLBAR
  $GUI_NAVIGATION
  $GUI_PROGRESSBAR
  $GUI_PLAYLIST
  $GUI_MIXER
 </vbox>
</window>"


Now let's be a little bit more advanced. Playlist could be nice to have as a left wing (panel). To do this we must use a deeper level of playlist variables. While $GUI_PLAYLIST contains all info about the complete playlist module, $GUI_PLAYLIST_FIELD contains only the list. - The buttons are defined in $GUI_PLAYLIST_BUTTONS. <hbox> makes a horizontal gui, while <vbox> makes it vertical.
Code:
GUI="
<window title=\"Pmusic\" icon-name=\"gtk-media-stop\" default_height=\"$HEIGHT\" default_width=\"$WIDTH\">
<hbox>
  $GUI_PLAYLIST_FIELD
  <vbox>
   $GUI_MENU
   $GUI_NAVIGATION
   $GUI_PROGRESSBAR
   $GUI_PLAYLIST_BUTTONS
   $GUI_INDEX
   $GUI_MIXER
  </vbox>
 </hbox>
</window>"

Using the 'Nad' theme, the main window will look like this:



For even more complex gui buildings, take a look at the presets 'Manager' and 'Wings'.
If you make a really good preset, that might be good to others too, please share it here on the forum. Thank you!

The main variables are
GUI_MENU
GUI_TOOLBAR
GUI_NAVIGATION
GUI_PROGRESSBAR
GUI_PLAYLIST
GUI_PLAYLIST_MULTIPLE
GUI_INDEX
GUI_LYRICS
GUI_MIXER
GUI_FILEBROWSER
GUI_INFO

Many of these are built of other variables.
Here's the list:
Code:
GUI_MENU="
<menubar>
 $GUI_MENU_FILE
 $GUI_MENU_PLAYLIST
 $GUI_MENU_TOOLS
 $GUI_MENU_PLAY
 $GUI_MENU_WINDOW
 $GUI_MENU_HELP
</menubar>"

GUI_TOOLBAR="

   $GUI_BUTTON_PLAYLIST_MULTIPLE
   <pixmap><input file>$APPDIR/tab10.png</input></pixmap>
   $GUI_BUTTON_MUTE
   <pixmap><input file>$APPDIR/tab10.png</input></pixmap>
   $GUI_BUTTON_SONG_INFO
   $GUI_BUTTON_UPDATE_INDEX2
   $GUI_BUTTON_PRESET_MINI
  </hbox>
 </vbox>
</hbox>"

GUI_NAVIGATION="
<hbox homogeneous=\"true\">

GUI_PLAYLIST_BUTTONS="

 <text><label>\"  \"</label></text>
 $GUI_BUTTON_MOVE_UP
 $GUI_BUTTON_MOVE_DOWN
 $GUI_BUTTON_REMOVE
 $GUI_BUTTON_ADD
</hbox>"

GUI_INDEX="

GUI_INDEX_BUTTONS="

Wow! Smile

Looks nice! Someone's been a busy puppy!

In the mixer I can't seem to get bass/treble to work (on fast box Wink ) Is there any trick to it? Buttons seem greyed out. A midrange option would actually make it an equaliser...

Thanks!

Hmm seem to be having browser issues.

Tried to download and got the 401 Not Authorised issue. No password box just a white page with text, any ideas.

Maybe my browser is corrupt as it will also not save my forum login password details ?

Hi Rob

I had that issue yesterday. Try going directly to puppylinux.asia, then find zigbert's directory in TPP.

Cheers

Hmmm, It may be a problem there. Confused

There isn't a pmusic 0.7.0 on that server, hence that's why the link crashes.

The treble/bass controller is only reachable if your soundcard supports it. This is NOT a software equalizer. You seems to be one of many unlucky guys who bought a too cheap soundcard. Smile I have to admit that I would have been happy if my hardware supported tone control. Embarassed That means; the treble/bass functions is totally untested. Let's hope one of those lucky bastards tells us how nice it is to tune the sound just the way they want it to be. Very Happy


Where is your first window preset?

Hope you will share your theme with us. It looks VERY promising. You will maybe think that the buttons are too big for the 'Manager' window in Pmusic 0.7.0, but don't rush. Maybe they will look gorgeous in 0.7.1...........I'm thinkin'

Isn't life fun Confused

OK downloaded the pet. Uninstalled 0.6.5 and then installed 0.7.0.

All OK then clicked on pmusic in menu. Splash screen opened OK and then a fleeting glimpse of a frame before 'nothing'. splash vanished and no sign of a program.

I seriously think something is wrong with my pupsave. I'm going to re-install again and report back.

I've added a pic of my desktop with the themes I've made, all on at once.

Oh Yes! THATS what i'm talkin about!



BTW.... on my laptop, plugging in headphones while Pmusic is playing mutes on-board speakers, as it should. Adjusting sound from tray icon is fine, but adjusting sound from within Pmusic GUI re-activates on-board speakers AND headphones. Unplugging headphones and then re-plugging them again mutes on-board speakers. Very Happy

I hate to ask for more, but could you put an 'exit' button on the GUI please.
