Hi pemasu,

Dpup Exprimo 5.X.8 SMP is working great. Very Happy Setup was flawless.

Thanks,
Jim

PostPosted: Tue 27 Sep 2011, 20:01    Post_subject: Exprimo 5x8 smp works great in jwm  

Hi pemasu & all,

After I deleted Exprimo 5x7smp from its folder, I unpacked Exprimo 5x8 smp to that folder and rebooted. Everything worked great once I switched to jwm and restarted X, Restarting X was the easiest way to deal with the last of these problems: The first was that my system has 15 partitions, of which ibar showed only 8, and not even consecutive. I could not figure out how to close ibar. So when I switched with ibar still open about 6 dialogue boxes relating to ibar were on the desktop and in the tray.
I'm glad to hear that jwm has been updated, solving the firefox bug. But your mention that the pet just installs the "bin" is slightly confusing. Please correct me if I'm wrong: installing the pet will replace the current jwm in Exprimo, but not whatever addons are currently expected by users running jwm on older puppies --that is, that by itself it will not create the environment jwm fans have come to expect if it, alone, were added to a pupplet currently devoid of jwm, for example Next Puppy.

G'day pemasu,

Full and frugal Exprimo-5x8 run well on my desktop (has troublesome radeon graphics) once I install the ATI flgrx driver so that I can see the text to create a Save file during first shut-down.

Please accept my continued appreciation for your time and effort.

David S.

mikeslr. Main thing is that JWM has been again updated. And....I wanted to compile jwm binary so that people can see that it really offers something useful compared to the previous one. My main purpose was not to produce immediately the full jwm-502.pet with all improvements added.
The information of JWM update was the news.
When you compile the jwm source, you get the jwm binary. There is nothing confusing.

Not 100% sure about this. New JWM seems to cause a disturbing tremble in window frames as they update contents. Will test with older version to see if it is something else. CAN confirm F11 bug is fixed though.

EDIT: Nope, its not the new JWM, its something lower down, probably the screen driver.

I compiled couple of file transfer apps. Both of them should support bittorrent also. You need to install libtorrent deb from repo though, I think. Test download worked with aria2.

Both are cli apps.

I realised the fbreader can be used to open many formats. Laughing

That's a good feature that you should use with the
right click menu. So I quickly made a pet with
a few of the file formats represented.

Interesting .. it does open html files fairly well, even with graphics.

I have in PATH download-latest-firefox script, so you call it straight in console. (/root/my-applications/bin/download-latest-firefox)

It downloads Firefox-7.0, creates DOTdesktop file and asks if you want Firefox to be default browser. The script was presented in Slacko thread, probably it is 01mickos design. I just tested it, works fine.
You can change the LANG="en-GB" line in script to your preferred one. Line 12 in script.
You will get automatic download and menu entry creation.
It is included in Exprimo already, so you can test it whenever you wish.

PostPosted: Thu 29 Sep 2011, 13:09    Post_subject: wrong name for desktop file  

When I upgraded to mtpaint 3.34.69 I noticed
that there was now two desktop files. (see picture)

I think that you haven't been consistent with
Barry Kauler's method of naming.
When I make a pet package, I get the
desktop name by looking at Wary.

Yeah, I struggled to find for e17 better palette icon. The naming convention was not clearly in my mind. I will fix the naming for Mtpaint. Thanks don570.

Jim3630. I did get only one Firefox menu entry. I think that something in your setup caused that you have now 2 Firefox.desktop files in /usr/share/applications. I am sure you know how to remove the non needed one.

My latest play thing. I hacked together existing script to download wallpaper of the day from the http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/index.html

You get the wallpaper of the day with this script. Install the pet and in console, launch: wallpaper-of-the-day. Enjoy.
The script installs to the /root/my-applications/bin

Use Pschedule to launch this script for example every hour and when the wallpaper changes, you get new one. Not smartest way, but that came my mind with quick brainstorming.

Note that 'mk_dated_backup' doesn't work for files that
have white space in name.

I developed a method to back up a pupsave file with
pschedule. For people who need daily backup
this might be useful.
