dice roller Sub_title: Have you lost your dice? This app can help!
This is a really simple dice roller app in case you lost your Monopoly dice or your pop-O-matic wore out.
It's probably the closest I'll ever come to programming anything to do with any game!
What this actually is is a demonstration of the new abilities given gtkdialog thanks to thunor and of course zigbert.. (for keeping the faith ). It can be checked out through svn here
For the rest of us
The gtkdialog3.gz file attached below is needed for roll_the_dice to work
I have already compiled an exec for the current revision of gtkdialog (r17 at time of posting, edited 20110626) but I will not offer it as a .pet. Instead I'll supply a gzipped exec and a script to install and backup your original incase things go wrong. (which they shouldn't)
The script will download to the same place as the gzipped gtkdialog file and you can just click it to install the new gtkdialog and then install and use the roll_the_dice pet. The pet has a menu entry in 'Fun'. It also has the option of one die or two dice.
If it fails and your gtkdialog seems broken you can run the gtkdialog_install script with the '-r' option to restore your original gtkdialog.
in the directory where you saved the download.
EDIT -if you had trouble with the gtkdialog3 exec I have compiled a new one as of 2011/06/24 in puppy-431 for compatibility, tested in 431, wary-512 and spup, should be ok in lupu
EDIT 20110626 up to r17 for gtkdialog
