Subject description: Doesn't work properly... with Puppy Wary/Racy 5.2.2!
 

Hello,
=> JWM Configuration allows multiple root MENUS.
Below are copies of the two configuration files that set 3 separate MENUS in the task bar. Besides, these MENUS can be displayed by clicking on any empty area of the desktop. Previous French version of 'Toutou LINUX', based on Puppy LINUX 4.31, came with a split '3 in 1' MENU that worked and still works perfectly with Puppy Lucid 5.x and Quirky 1.4.2. Details and pictures => 2Pmm: a 'split MENU' for Puppy...

Running Wary/Racy 5.x, something is going wrong:
    get the 3 buttons inside the task bar... This is OK!
    Clicks on desktop display MENUS... This is OK! But...
As soon as clicked on desktop to display MENUS, Pinboard doesn't work properly anymore: desktop shortcuts and drives icons don't react to mouse events Shocked and I get this error message in /tmp/xerrs.log:
Quote:
** (ROX-Filer:5535): CRITICAL **: pinboard_pin_with_args: assertion `current_pinboard != NULL' failed

This occurs whatever the versions of JWM or ROX-Filer are (I tested with 2.9, 2.10, and fresh self compiled 2.11 releases). Neither the filer nor window manager seem to be the reason of the problem!
If running
Code:
rox -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin

or getting back to the classical single Puppy MENU, all works well again! Sad

Help would be very very appreciated!

Regards

jwm_tools has a couple of scripts you can reference

jwm_menu_create does the normal menu - feel free to tweak it

jwm_install_menu_create builds a separate menu that lists all of the puppy .pets from supported repositories ... but in its own separate tray

Hello,
Thank you for replying technosaurus!
Configurations files above are working fine with Puppy 4.31, Puppy Lucid 5.x and Quirky 1.4.2. I exactly get what I expect and I would like, if possible, to keep my script such as it is!
These configuration files partially work with latest releases of Puppy Wary/Racy 5.x... I only need help to understand why Pinboard doesn't work anymore, why desktop shortcuts and drives icons don't react to mouse events and then do appropriate corrections to make it work properly...

I suspect this is a bug specific to Wary/Racy 5.x...

Regards.
