Solidpup511-B Lite beta-2.5 has now been uploaded.

It contains bug fixes and some updated apps.

For compiling, in this version, you will need to install the DEVX_ADDON pet,
as well as loading the wary_devx_511.sfs

The final release will have it's own devx, and you won't need a DEVX_ADDON pet for it.

Thx Tman. Will try this soon. I've just been trying to add SeaMonkey to the previous version and found that the PPM links for SM 2.0.7 and SM 2.0.11 were dead. Didn't try the others -went for FF instead.

Very much liking these recent versions. Sleek.

I don't use the PPM to install apps ... I just go straight to the repositories and download them .. that way I get to save the copy on my hard-drive and not have to download it again.

For Seamonkey, try "Get Internet Apps" in the Internet menu.
If it takes unbearably long on a fast connection, cancel and try again.
(It just happened to me and that's what I did). I am posting from Seamonkey 2.12.1 (But I still favour Firefox)
It downloads and installs the latest en-us version of Seamonkey from the official site.

For a lite alternative to Dillo, there's also links2 (grapical) web browser

I will make a better startup page for links2 at a later time.

Thx. Just looking at the screenshot in your last post - I see the "2.5" in the bottom left corner. Is that a replacement for the "puppy face" shortcut that you had at top left on the B2 release?

I was going to ask you how hard it might be to put a "desktop" shortcut at bottom left - If I have multiple windows open I find it a bit slow to have to minimise every window before I can see the wbar.

Yes the 2.5 is there so that I don't get confused of what version I'm in.
The Final will probably say "menu" or just have some symbol.

I will see what I can do for the show desktop... I am not sure if tint2 has that feature, or if the command is separate from the panel. But if I can find it, I can put an icon to the right of the tint2 panel.

Nice! Can I get your .configure options for it? I want to try compiling the latest SVN release.

Nothing fancy in the configure options that I remember, think it was just --prefix=/usr

Here's a link to download the pet:

Thanks, Billtoo.

I'll upload Mplayer later ... about to head off to work now.

EDIT: it's now been uploaded, I just changed the ending to "w5" instead of "i686".

Okay I found the Openbox shortcut keys for ToggleShowDesktop is:

Windows Key+d

I will incorporate this function into the tint2 Taskbar in the next release.

Excellent thanks!

I quite like the puppy face you used in B2 (along with the "2.5" aswell maybe...) rather than the word "menu". Just my personal pref.

The only problem with that is, if I use the puppy face, I cannot get it to line up with the tint2 taskbar on the bottom...otherwise, I would use it.
I can set up 2 different .desktop files for the same function if you like... one
with the logo and one without. Then you can drag whichever one you prefer to the desktop.

Attached is the pet that will add the ToggleShowDesktop function to the tint2 panel.

I think just go with whichever one you find is best - no point going to the trouble of extra .files
(Although the menu/puppyface icon does not necessarily need to go next to the taskbar - it's just as easy to rightclick the little piece of desktop that is visible there... I just thought the puppyface looked quite good at top left)

Thanks for the .pet.

I agree. I just put that icon there for those who are used to left-clicking for the menu. When I first used tint2, I felt right-clicking was awkward, but now I am very used to it.
