PostPosted: Wed 24 May 2006, 19:00    Post_subject:  Introducing: The all new freememapplet v1.0!  

I've promised to check out wmpupmem and see if I could fix it. Well, here are the results:

freememapplet v1.0
(*) Complete rewrite, absolutely no code has been copied and pasted (hence the new name)
(*) Gtk1 instead of Xlib. This fixes the problem with JWM swallowing the app...
(*) Tooltips
(*) Enhanced color flashing
(*) Color, time intervals and memory level definitions can be easily set through defined values
(*) Now displays the size in KB, MB, GB, etc. format, instead of only MB.

It is originally made for Puppy2, I'm not sure if this has any use for Puppy1. Please test it (just copy binary to /usr/bin and change .jwmrc-tray from wmpupmem to freememapplet), and post you impressions.

lior2b, the file .jwmrc-tray is found 2 places: /root/.jwmrc-tray and /initrd/pup_ro2/root/.jwmrc-tray. I replaced them both to make sure. Nothing happened so I restarted X to start the program.

It is an application that shows in the system tray when it is running, like SeaMonkey would if it were running. When I clicked it in the system tray, the window showing free memory showed up in the upper left-hand corner of the desktop, covering the "Home" icon. I found that I could right-click on it, choose "move" and drag the window around.

hmmm, I suppose changing /root/.jwmrc-tray is sufficient.

About your experience, I believe you forgot something... Two quick questions: a) Are you running Puppy2? b) Have you changed the name too? it should look like this:
Code:
<Swallow name="freememapplet">
   freememapplet
</Swallow>

No, I hadn't changed the second line to freememapplet. When I did, and restarted X, I can't find the program. How do I start it or where is it in the menu?

I didn't make a dotpup because freememapplet will be available (I hope Razz) in the official Puppy2, hence, you can't install it easily as other programs, and it won't show up in the menu. It shouldn't be in the menu anyway, because it is a tray app. Detailed installation insctructions might be:
1) Download freememapplet-1.0.tar.gz
2) Extract and copy the binary to /usr/bin:
Code:
tar xzf freememapplet-1.0.tar.gz && cp freememapplet-1.0/freememapplet /usr/bin/freememapplet

3) Change .jwmrc-tray as described above
4) Restart X (you can restart JWM, but than you will have to kill the old wmpupmem app...)
Expected behavior: A tray app should appear, displaying your free memory...

Does it work for you?

this is what I get in p2a8
You can see the background is dark blue instead of grey - the M looks a bit squashed.
My res is 1280 x 1024

Smile

hope that helps -more testers using Puppy2 alpha 8 needed

Lobster, that's because it's ain't my app Neutral
Your screenshot shows the old wmpupmem... Check .jwmrc-tray and see if you've changed both the name attribute and the node's text...

You mean follow your instruction Embarassed

Downloaded and did again (and altered .jwmrc-tray)

Looks better when you do it right . . .

That's my app alright Very Happy Thanks for the screenshot...
Why don't you change blinky's background to the PuppyXP tray color? Somthing like:
Code:
blinky -bg "#3A82F8"

lior2b, I didn't answer your second question. I'm running the 24 May snapshot of Puppy2.

Done that - very nice thanks
in .jwmrc-tray - maybe that could be done by the JWM configurator?

I also changed the background colour of xload

thanks again

That looks great. I'm going to go ahead and try it in 109CE and report back.

Hope the picture go through...
The program on jwm tray of 1.08 puppy. Fine. Seems the bg colour can't be modified... Maybe next version?
