G'day again,

About the drive icons - I think "misplaced" describes the problem.

I have 28 hard-drive partitions, 2 optical drives, and space for at least six USB drives. So the icons won't fit on just one line across the bottom of my monitor.

Most other Pups now can form these up in two lines on first booting. Stardust is OK if I move those in the right-corner pile one-at-a-time to elsewhere on the display. It is just the first boot that is messy and could upset some people with similar multi-harddrive multi-partition computers.

David S.

Hi Sigmund

If "focus" is set to sloppy then in my little Stardust gtk-slideshow there is no problem.

Perhaps our friend Patriot could have another look at the JWM source such that it works ok with click to focus, then we could have a useful slideshow with no dependencies Cool

Here are the latest scripts, including a "Stop" script if anyone wants to try, files are well commented to give you a hand. All suggestions welcome Smile

Main script
Code:
#!/bin/sh
#01micko
###############################################
#####    BE WARNED.... EXPERIMENTAL!!!   ######
###############################################
##IF YOU WANT TO TRY THIS (everything is in Stardust from 007)
#copy this text and paste in a text editor, save as 'gtk-slideshow' in /root for now.
#make a dir called '/root/.gtk-slideshow'
#make a dir called '/root/images' and put any jpg or png images you like in it  ## you could use '/usr/share/backgrounds'.. but this is Stardust!!!
#make a dir called '/root/.gtk-slideshow/tmp'
#DON'T use too many images because it will take an age to kill! (er must fix that)##Have fixed with new script :), so now use as many images as you like.
#please... hack, improve, post!!!

#one problem.. always wants mouse focus!!##WORK-AROUND.. use sloppy focus in JWM.. see ziggy's control panel

#X=1180 #future stuff
#Y=585
#export X
#export Y
#Below in the gtkdialog code is for my screen res, "--geometry +1180+585 &", change to suit your self.

#essential to start
rm -f $HOME/.gtk-slideshow/tmp/stop

#show background
export BG='
<window width-request="136" height-request="105">
<text><label>""</label></text>
</window>'
gtkdialog3 --class=jwm-applet -p BG -G +1180+585 &

##ziggy's stuff from pwidgets 'Slideshow'###hmmmmm... we need a mechanism to detect if this is all done already OR if you want a to use a new image dir.
IMAGE_DIRECTORY=/root/images 
SCALED_DIR=/root/.gtk-slideshow/misc/scaledimages
   mkdir $SCALED_DIR 2> /dev/null
   rm -f $SCALED_DIR/* 2> /dev/null
            
   #build resized images in a temporary storage
   ls -1 "$IMAGE_DIRECTORY" > /root/.gtk-slideshow/tmp/piccies-tmp
         COUNT=0
         while read I; do
            COUNT=`expr $COUNT + 1`
            [ `echo "$COUNT" | wc -c` = 2 ] && COUNT=`echo "0$COUNT"` #ensure 2 digits
            TMP=`basename "$I" | cut -d '.' -f 1`
            resizepng "$IMAGE_DIRECTORY"/"$I" "$SCALED_DIR"/"$COUNT".png 126 95 100
            done < /root/.gtk-slideshow/tmp/piccies-tmp
#build exec file for slideshow      #my stuff      
echo "#!/bin/sh" > /root/.gtk-slideshow/tmp/slideshow      
export SCALED_DIR
PICCIES=`ls /root/.gtk-slideshow/misc/scaledimages`
for i in $PICCIES; do
export i
NUMBER=`echo $i | cut -d "." -f1`

echo "export PIC${NUMBER}='
<window>
<pixmap><input file>/root/.gtk-slideshow/misc/scaledimages/$i</input></pixmap>
</window>'
gtkdialog3 --class=jwm-applet -p PIC${NUMBER} --geometry +1180+585 &
sleep 5
kill \`ps | grep PIC${NUMBER} | awk '{print \$1}'\` 2> /dev/null" >> /root/.gtk-slideshow/tmp/slideshow
done
chmod 755 /root/.gtk-slideshow/tmp/slideshow
sleep 1
#loop the exec file ##to kill the slideshow type 'echo "" >/root/.gtk-slideshow/tmp/stop' in terminal (or kill the term where you started it from ;) )
# to restart type 'rm -f /root/.gtk-slideshow/tmp/stop', then './gtk-slideshow' in dir where you saved
until [ -e /root/.gtk-slideshow/tmp/stop ]; do eval /root/.gtk-slideshow/tmp/slideshow
done
break


Stop script.. name it "slide-stop" or something and save in /root
Code:
#!/bin/sh
echo "" >/root/.gtk-slideshow/tmp/stop
kill `ps | grep BG | awk '{print $1}'` 2> /dev/null
kill `ps | grep "gtk-slideshow" | awk '{print $1}'` 2> /dev/null
kill `ps | grep PIC | awk '{print $1}'` 2> /dev/null


Cheers

However, my reason to post is to ask if you can include in Stardust the drive-icon-placement-in-rows improvement that is now in most other Puolets, even in base Puppies such as 4.3.2. My second drive partitions, my usb and optical drive icons pile up in the bottom right of the screen on first starting.
Is there no icons, or are they misplaced?

sigmund,

i think it's this problem and solution:

Mood buttons is nothing else that 'ptheme -p THEME', so these will live as before. They are just too cool to be gone. BUT. I have not solved how to include user defined global themes into a mood-button .....only the 4 prebuilt.

without any further ado...

Here is Stardust Slideshow

NOTES

-experimental, use at own risk. It is really just a demonstration of how far we can bend gtk-dialog Smile
- NO dependencies, everything is in Stardust since 007, it will run in standard puppy with the necessary tweaks to '/root/.jwmrc', so it is very cheap bling
-limited to 30 pics, no matter how many you dump in your desired image folder
-works on as low as a p3 coppermine 600 with 256 ram, the full 30 images.
-may use some cpu first up, but if you get edgy, leave the configuration gui running so you can easy kill it (with "Stop" button)
-very configurable
-NOT integrated with Pwidgets, it is stand alone. It probably isn't worth including because it probably will never be perfect
-ISSUES: You must change JWM focus to "Sloppy", or it is crappy, you may get flickering when something else is open full screen
-it's just a bit of fun, but I'll fix bugs if you like

Have fun

Nah, no go, ziggy took out the colour wheel. There's colours in mtpaint. You can type "green" or "blue" or whatever and it still works.

Zigbert, please include pshutdown. It is such a frustration saver for touchpad users. If you dont want to change .jwmrc, launch it from a pinboard icon?
.Pet here is for the basic files and does not change .jwmrc, in case you lost them..............
