by the way, i just tried the latest mrxvt dotpup

it puts mrxvt in /usr/X11R6/bin/
but it puts this menu item in Icewm:
prog "mrsvt" mini-sh /usr/local/bin/mrxvt -sr -e Bash

so it doesn't show up in the menu

also, i don't think -e Bash will work ... i think it should be -e bash

also, i don't think "mrsvt" is spelled right

i find 99% of the time spent making a package is spent configuring and tweaking and bug-fixing and testing

So right!

also, how about prompting the user for a few "preconfigured" eye candy settings? If we spent the kilobytes on it, might as well use the it Very Happy

Or maybe prompt the user for their own command line option before populating the menus? for example, I like the tab better at the bottom rather than at the top (I think it's -bt option), I like to save a lot of scroll lines (-sl xxxx I think) and I like the scrollbar to rxvt style because it's skinnier.

Of course I can always edit the menus myself....

yes, eye candy options give a little extra polish

an easy-to-read large-fonts option is always a good idea

also, i find the default number of lines too small ... i've been putting -sl 32000 in my menus (i hope it doesn't use too much memory for people who run Puppy with 32 megs of ram)

PostPosted: Thu 30 Jun 2005, 20:39    Post subject: mrxvtset dotpup  

This is a small utility for mrxvt

I compiled it from the source code at:

http://materm.sourceforge.net/docs/settitle.c
    Usage:
    mrxvtset -t tab_title # set tab/terminal title
    mrxvtset -c tab_title # create a new tab
    mrxvtset -e encoding # change encoding method
    mrxvtset -g color # change tinting color
    mrxvtset -s number # change shade of tinting
    mrxvtset -o [-+]number # change opacity level
    mrxvtset -p # activate previous tab
    mrxvtset -n # activate next tab
    mrxvtset -a # hide/show tabbar buttons
    mrxvtset -H [m|t|s] # hide/show tabbar/scrollbar/menubar


filelist:
    /root/my-applications/bin/mrxvtset

Naturally, it requires that you have mrxvt installed. Smile

A couple of the features I particularly like are
    * hiding the scrollbar
    * naming the tabs.

I've made bash aliases for these tasks, so I don't need to type in the full command.

Enjoy!

alsp my HOME key doesn't work in mrxvt whereas it does in rxvt.
I know keys like HOME, BACKSPACE, DEL can be trouble in terminalemulator, I just don't remember how to fix it.

I think they might work if the /root/.mrxvtrc file defined them first. I haven't tried it because I'm using solid colors.

you can set the home and end keys in /root/.Xdefaults

the home and end keys in my mrxvt seems to work ok ... but i compiled my own version, with the default saved scroll lines set to 32000, and with the --disable-utempter compile option (so it doesn't need the library file)

here's a quick doptpup i just made
this is mrxvt the way i compiled it
this does not install mrxvt, or put it in your PATH
when you click the roxapp icon, it runs the mrxvt binary that's in the roxapp
if you want, you can install it by copying to a PATH dir

how about removing Thai and Greek support to make it smaller.
Also, do the -tint and -fade options work for you?

Also I can confirm that the HOME and END keys work fine with your version. I have not even installed the dotpup, I simply ran the executable from a locally unzipped directory.

I want this on my liveCD so I'm making an Unleashed

i like enabling language support, if it doesn't take too much space

it's nice when a person can use Puppy in their own language

if anyone translates icewm's menu to another language, you can upload it and i (or someone) can make a dotpup

also, i compiled nls language support in icewm, so it could probably run in other languages (i have the po files)

one problem, is i don't know a lot about getting languages to work properly

i think it's the .Xdefaults compile option that lets mrxvt use rxvt's Xdefaults options

i did experiment with tinting and shading, but it didn't seem to work ... on Puppy or Vector Linux

it may be that i'm doing something wrong (it has a lot of command line options) ... it might be that it doesn't play well with rox ... it doesn't seem to work with xvesa or xfree86

aterm does seem to work ok ... aterm pic:

nearly forgot ... Greek support seems to work ... i accidently pressed a ctrl or alt key combination, and all the letters in my mrxvt window turned into the Greek alphabet ... i didn't know how to get it back again, so i closed the window

one thing that doesn't appear to work is that it doesn't seem to read my custom configuration out of .mrxvtrc

drj, GuestToo thanks for these great apps.

I've been reading up on it and configuring it to my liking. Lots of configuration options.

One thing I discovered is you can change the font size with keyboard short cuts.

ctrl shift -

I guess tint and sahde work, they just need to be used with the transparent background:
