Apologize my stupidity. Libgio is in Stardust. I was looking for a package, and could find any........ This is very nice, - gtksourceview is gone, and the iso is 250kb smaller. Thanks a lot for your notecase package.

Sub_title: goody, NoteCase too! + update...
 

Indeed text editors are various (funny, I even like a few in wine for minor things they can do out-of-the-box)

Geany is an 'old friend' with a few features right up top that may be of value (sure it is a dev tool, but almost always better to have room to grow into easily) .. just the other day I was perplexed at a window manager's refusal to obey the configuration I set and reset and fiddled with other settings imagining interactions interfering in some odd way until I opened it up in G' ( Laughing a trailing tab-space which the old friend made graphically clear!)

Yep, (usually) easy enough to add 'must have' apps or other desired features - an art to put the flow in so the tool is useful and used

looking forward to trying out when the dieLup dl fins and I get a chance to play;

update-100115
..a look at the first try (even though 'take 2' was out, dl'ing almost 100mb of iso over dialup is no treat for some minor bugfixes.. and I wouldn't have looked at NicoEdit again - now I've a little more grasp of it, enough to change the bg color anyway even though I'm still not sure of a few things like why it occasionally leaves the .bak file as a remnant).

Generally, I like Stardust1 (kind of a change from synth's t-pup xtreme, even taking into account the 421/431 difs). The main thing for me was the pcc - hard to pull all the setup and misc stuff together well since there are a few items that get recalled from time to time after the initial setup but all those wizards really do clutter a working menu after they've been set. Personally, I've noticed many of the subs in pcc are jwm-related - useful and leads to further wondering if other wms could also be so integrated (perhaps a section dedicated to wm-specifics as is done with 'base' menus triggered by a call to which wm is active). In any case, often-used subs (and really that's dependent on user-pref) can be re-done as dotdesktops if one wishes menu items (if they are not there already).

A few minor niggles. Whatever happened to gexec? It'd be nice if it could be back in (I've found fbrun is a useable substitute and that 'run' part of lxpanel's menu plugin even more so) for those folk who are a bit challenged by making simple scripts and calls and not all that familiar with a terminal (must remember to check and see if local mans are easily accessed in proper format, this was of some concern in p431 if I recall another thread ). The CDvD wizard .. why is it lacking a 'default burner'? Maybe it's related to using Pburn and doing away with burniso2cd (mixed opinion there..). Still only a few savedirs into using Stardust1, but the CDvD wizard almost never 'kept' the settings in most other pups I've used (ie it always came up 'pink unset' and never kept the 'blue as set' for one option or another across sessions Rolling Eyes ).

Yah, trays are a great feature of jwm ( Laughing I put 'ptray' on the left a-la synth's implementation along with the tasklist/bar according to if items work well in a vertical format, a few are better suited to horizontal depending on width requirements - really don't recall if ptray's gui 'editor' works or not Neutral ). Mostly I use wbar for a 'quick' launcher since it works better as a universal method if other wms are used. Pseudo-transparency in jwm is easily effected by Patriot's instruction and a few jwm theme-edits along with dumping k or xcompmgr in (I use it as 'jwm-beta' since kcompmgr affects performance a bit as well as perhaps doing odd things to display if called before things are settled in).

Probably should settle down and do the whole SHS fonts thing to optimize. Funny, I dumped a bunch in but had some issues - like probably not such a great idea for me to simply toss them in /archive even though it seemed so at first... Then even after I got'em useable, some are not as crisp as in other pups Neutral plus I get a definite feel that hinting is more a necessity than otherwise for differences to show well or at all.

A few thoughts on development direction .. dynamic menus (or maybe profiles for user-oriented setups) either as done in some of jemimah's pupwork (yep, gotta look into that for some hands-on there to get more informed in real situations) or elsewise. This could even be extended (it seems to be somewhat the same mechanism, from what I've read) to a dynamic 'run' as is in the macpups under E17. 'Smart' is good, usually Wink

Lastly, not to complain .. but local documentation can be a very good thing imo (an internet connection is not always a 'given' - oya, the usual screenie-link 245k Cool ).

ps(oki, very lastly..) - majorleague thanks to 01micko (and the hostage Laughing ) for all the running xdelta files, it makes a ***huge*** difference in dl-time (now to leapfrog from 01 all the way to 05 and not miss a beat, fortunately I have a 'bone' just for this bit of gnawing since the old vintage win32 won't allow names for dls with a colon Wink ).

You win guys!
I'll include geany for next release.
I personally use black background instead of white in the editor field. What are your opinion?

The 'execute' button doesn't work in Geany in Puppy 4.3.1. Have anyone fixed this?
