Dear mick,

Here is an icon I found (PD) that might be suitable for PCountdown.

With kind regards,
vovchik

Hello vovchik

Thanks for all your help, I fixed the <vbox> tag with your suggestion, and also reduced the icon to 16x16 and added to the package and also added the full size icon to the main post with instructions on how to use it on the desktop.

Cheers

Mick

Dear Mick,

Have a look at this timer prog. It uses Xdialog for the GUI. I changed it a bit in order to accommodate command line arguments. You can put it wherever you want and type, for example,
Code:

./pcntdwn "0/0/5" "xterm -e ls"

to run xterm with parameters in 5 seconds' time. The countdown bit is pretty nice, since it uses a GTK widget, but your prog offers a better GUI and more control. In any case, here is some more food for thought. If you simply click on pcntdwn in Rox without arguments, you will launch the GUI. I think we might need to do some error checks on the command line input and clean up the logic relating to that aspect. My mods were just a quick hack to get it running. Launching in a terminal with -help or --help displays usage.

With kind regards,
vovchik

Hello vovchik

That is a cool little countdown timer, up to 100 hrs too I see. It would be great for offpeak downloading... let's say
Code:
./pcntdwn "5/0/0" wget -[options] http://www.someaddress/somefile
Easy. You could set it before you go to bed. I could add a box to run a command to mine too, but I think Pschedule takes care of it anyway.

BTW, I just did 2 tests on my old box (over 2 days). If you set for 24 hours it works but restarts the timer immediately, if you set for 23h 59m 59s it works as expected.. I will remove 24 from the dropdown in the next release.

Dave, you are now even more spoilt for choice!

Cheers

Mick

Yes the latest one from vovchik is small and elegant.

So in the space of a week I now have countdown timers courtesy of jemimah, Lobster, vovchik and yourself...plus a few count-up timer suggestions. Smile

Many thanks to all.
Dave
Thinks: now if I could get the attention of a GUI expert to fix the double menus problem in Gxine in 214X http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=47779 my life would be complete....or close to it. Smile

Hi ttuuxxx

Thanks for that. I posted it in the main post, let the user decide Smile

It is very handy as a desktop app this, especially if you have a computer in the kitchen, great for timing that fancy dish to perfection. Laughing my wife's machine is in the kitchen and we actually use this app for this purpose, and with a desktop icon.

Cheers

I always thought a laptop mounted on a kitchen cupboard door with a GOOD recipe app would be sweet!!

Hi 01micko,
Thanks for this version. I like the fact the GUI disappears whilst counting down but I do feel the countdown clock seems a bit small for my personal liking. Not sure how I could adjust the font size?

Can you point me in the right direction pls.
Thanks as ever
Dave

Hi Dave

Sorry for late reply, missed it..

It seems yaf splash can only do 12x24 with the default font. With other fonts it seems it is font dependant. I will look for a suitable font that is in most puppy systems that shows the best. May even make it a choice in the gui.

Cheers
