Is there any reason I cannot type the name of the clock skin into the bar? After selecting one a file name is there but it is not possible to type it. I though perhaps if I couldn't see a skin in the menu to select it then possibly i could just enter the file name if i knew it, but alas.
I will add this onto my Pwidgets todo-list

Hi zigbert,

Bad news, the problem noted earlier with 003 has returned with Lucid puppy 007 and is still in 008. The PCC Desktop Trays button does not function. Also, the Edit tray button in the top mention does not work. The tray files can be edited manually. This problem occurred with a new 3fs save file created to test DuDE.

lupu-008 has an additional problem. If the programs menu is set to be activated by a left mouse click, clicking on a desktop icon will bring up the programs menu instead of executing the desktop icon. Something to do with pointer focus.
Hi Jim
Thank you for taking the effort to report these problems. My plan is to release DuDE 0.2 around the time Puppy 5 is arriving. I still focus on new features, and will wait for a stable Puppy before I start testing..... That means I have some evenings before we switch to a feature-freeze.

Let's hope the problems in Lupuhas a simple solution. Playdayz might have forgotten to include the correct gtkdialog/jwm package.


Sigmund

Good plan, DuDE worked perfectly in 006, then gave problems in 007 and 008, and now there is an 000 experimental out (3 releases in 2 days). I'm still going to try it though, at least I'm learning how to use it, and love it.

Cheers,
Jim

Hi Sigmund

Playdayz currently has an older gtkdialog in Lupu. I have compiled the Patriot edition and I'm sure it will be in the final. He's very busy just getting the thing to work correctly for all and doing a fine job. I'll mention it again soon.

JWM is now up to revision 490 by Joe. I have not compiled this yet, but Dougal reported on Barry's blog that it is good and fixed many minor issues.

Rox is still has a problem in Lupu but that is fixed for the next version.

Hopefully DuDE can play nicely in Lupu very soon.

Cheers

Mick

Hi zigbert,

Pleasant surprise this afternoon to return and find your latest. Installed it on lupu-009, and it is working great. Your added features, Pcorner and Virtual Keyboard work fine.

Pnote gives this message although it appears to be working fine.
Code:
sh: line 4: kill: (5483) - No such process
/usr/sbin/pnote: line 40:  4905 Killed                  gtkdialog3 -p Pnote -G +0+0

Ptray gives same error message as DuDE 0.1 on lupu-009 as reported before.
Code:
** ERROR **: gtkdialog: Error in line 369, near token ‘string’: syntax error
Because of this I couldn't check out the updates that depend on ptray and the associated buttons.

Thanks for this update, although there are still errors with lupu, it's still a great addition.

To get it going in lupu, you should install Micks jwm/gtkdialog pack.

I still get an error message with lupu-111 which I understand has that fix. Other than this it works great.
Code:
# ptray
(process:2482): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
   Using the fallback 'C' locale.
** ERROR **: gtkdialog: Error in line 225, near token 'string': syntax error
aborting...
#
Maybe lupu-112 due out tonight will correct this problem.

Frugal installation of ttuuxxx's 4.3.2 v3 has a different error message and of course the Edit tray and Trays buttons do not work. Have lupu and 4.3.2v3 done something similar? If not the problem may be with DuDE. Other than the ptray problem, it works great.
Code:
# ptray
** ERROR **: gtkdialog: Error in line 374, near token 'string': syntax error
aborting...
#

Cheers,
Jim

Jim
I wonder if this is caused by 'something' you have installed.

Could you do a check:

1. open /usr/sbin/ptray in a text editor. Close to the bottom of the code, you'll find the line '#echo "$Ptray" > /root/gtk'. remove the hash - 'echo "$Ptray" > /root/gtk'

2. After executing ptray, open /root/gtk in a text-editor and find line 225 in lupu or line 374 in Puppy 4.3.2. What does the line(s) say.


Thank you
Sigmund

Edit: Why not attach the whole /root/gtk file

Hope this helps, you probably do need the whole file because of the echo that's included. Line 225 "<item>Theme Orange</item>" doesn't appear to be relevant to the problem.

Hi Jim

No, playdayz forgot the new gtkdialog/JWM in lupu-111, they will install just fine, use zigbert's link.

Cheers

You are correct, because of this statement, I started lupu-112 with no save file and installed DuDE first. It worked flawlessly, then still without a save file I installed my usual programs, one at a time, checking ptray after each installation and found the conflicting program "snap2_4.3.pet". Too bad, it's a super backup utility.

Sorry that I've wasted your time, I could have done this earlier. Embarassed

Your update is super, it works fine without pwidgets. Pcorners, and all of the other features work great.

Thanks,
Jim Very Happy

My usual software plus is installed now except for snap2. This is Amarok, wine, e-Sword, firefox, seamonkey, OpenOffice3.2, pwidgets, edit_sfs, java, numlockx, Pet_Maker, Startmount, Sunbird, thunderbird, gnome-games-Lite, and DuDE. All work fine except DuDE's ptray when I install snap2.

Any ideas as to what I should check? I'd like to help find a solution, maybe we could get Istandish to look into this. Presently, 01micko has links in lupu-112's Quickpet for DuDE and snap2.

Cheers,
Jim
