I like your app sc0ttman, and it works fine.

It was just a suggestion to save hard coding in all the apps. You can use it or not.

Cheers

aha! I'll experiment, hopefully I'll save some time, kilobytes and RSI in the future! Very Happy

Thanks for this very neat little app sc0ttman! Puppy has truly needed something like this for a very long time! I know that whenever I play around with a Puppy I get tired at times of hauling over preconfigured "default***" files from my "default Puppy install" just to get it working the way I like. This vastly simplifies the process.

Thank you again very much!

Cheers!/Amicalement!

Merci! (that's all the French I know..) And you're welcome..

I agree, it's a pain in the ass to edit the default*** scripts all the time!!
Glad to know someone is using and enjoying it! Very Happy

This app has 2 qualities which I really love, it's tiny and it is very handy.
Thank You, sc0ttman.

I did notice that the option for default music player was not working properly, in Wary and Lucid Pup, so I took the liberty of modifying your pet (slightly). It can be found here:

Subject description: German, French, Spanish and Russian ideally, or anything else! ;)
 

Thanks Tman.. Glad you like it.

Just to note, as this is now included in Woof, I thought I'd get round to finishing off my latest version, which I am cooking at the moment.. With defaultaudioplayer supported, and a few other fixes, its a bit quicker too.

More importantly, it has also been i18n'd (internationalised)..
So.. I kindly request some translations for the following:

Code:
# english
Loc_app_name="Default Applications Chooser"
Loc_main_text="Choose your preferred default programs and applications, which you can then launch from your start menu or desktop."
Loc_main_tooltip="Choose your preferred default program"

Loc_audiomixer="Audio Mixer"
Loc_barehtml="Bare HTML Viewer"
Loc_browser="Web Browser"
Loc_calendar="Calendar"
Loc_connect="Connect"
Loc_contact="Contact"
Loc_drawing="Drawing"
Loc_email="Email"
Loc_htmleditor="HTML Editor"
Loc_htmlviewer="HTML Viewer"
Loc_imageeditor="Image Editor"
Loc_imageviewer="Image Viewer"
Loc_mediaplayer="Media Player"
Loc_musicplayer="Music Player"
Loc_paint="Paint"
Loc_search="Search"
Loc_spreadsheet="Spreadsheet"
Loc_texteditor="Text Editor"
Loc_textviewer="Text Viewer"
Loc_wordprocessor="Word Processor"

Loc_update_btn="Update"
Loc_help_btn="Help"
Loc_quit_btn="Quit"

Loc_help_title="Helpful Tips"
Loc_help_text1="You can add custom commands, parameters and options by typing the desired command in the chosen field and clicking the update button."
Loc_help_text2="To load apps through the terminal, simply add \"rxvt -e \" before the command you wish to execute in the terminal"
Loc_help_text3="Example: \"rxvt -e mp\" will load the terminal based editor, called \"MP\""

Have you considered adding console fallbacks?

for example
Code:
[ $DISPLAY ] && DEFAULTTEXTEDITOR=$DESKTOPTEXTEDITOR || DEFAULTTEXTEDITOR=$CONSOLETEXTEDITOR

DEFAULTTEXTEDITOR $@


#mine would be geany and mp btw ... not geek enough yet to be vim/vi Smile

No.. the amount of decent CLI apps included by default is pretty poor in general, isn't it? Cos to my system, I felt the need to manually add mc, elinks, transmissioncli, vlc_nogui, CLInet, pmirc, etc, etc..

Tried the .08 version in Lucid Puppy 5.2.8
Only problem is some programs do not show in drop-down menus, but you can manually input program name into item entry slot and it works to change default to that program.
Example:
libreoffice under wordproccesor
gnome-mplayer under media player

Just seems to not completely gather info on what programs are installed.

yes bigpup, it does not search but assumes as it tended to be much faster, when tested against the code snippets used around to get info from .desktop files... Although I do know that I found a snippet somewhere since which does it really quick...

the script is REALLY easy to change - just look in /usr/bin/defaults-chooser

Then you can edit the list of apps and add or remove anything you like. Smile

Anyway, then latest version I have installed on mine has way more apps, fixed the gnome-mplayer entry, added libreoffice, and many more apps... It is also i18n'd.. I will post it here soon... I already a slightly older one, with a few fixes missing in the Slacko RC thread.. But it seems not to have made it into Slacko Sad
