PostPosted: Sat 12 Jan 2013, 01:51    Post subject:  VSP Puppies
Subject description: Puppy Linux Derivatives including VarioMenu and SFS P.L.U.S.
 

Hello!

I want to introduce some of my VSP Puppies.

VSP Puppies are usual Puppies like Lucid, Slacko and others. But these Puppies are very special, because they include some useful tools from LazY Puppy - like the SFS P.L.U.S. and the VarioMenu. There might be one day where I can not use the LazY Puppy any longer, because of newer Hardware etc.pp. To not to loose the comfort of LazY Puppy, I decided to modify its best features to be able just to install them into another Puppy, and: ---> GO!

The VSP Puppies presented in here, are the results of this Work.



1.) SFS P.L.U.S.

The SFS P.L.U.S. included in these VSP Puppies is a more forwarded Version compared to the current Version 2.0.5 (Forum Utilities) on the Forum.

It includes the SFS P.L.U.S. Remaster Suite.

The SFS P.L.U.S. Remaster Suite is not like the LazY Puppy LazY Remaster Suite. It's especially created for the use to remaster the OS after creating and adding SFS P.L.U.S. RunScripts. It will keep only the changes on the RunScripts Directory, the Menu Entries (.desktop files), the Icons and some Desktop stuff like 'PuppyPin'.

So, you can create RunScripts, adding Icons (Buttons) to the Desktop and then doing a Remaster. Everything is executed without the need for the User to act and/or to edit Files or Directories manually. Check it out!



2.) VarioMenu

VarioMenu originally is created by German User der-schutzhund (with some help from SFR - thanks for the Help). I have made an extended Version of VarioMenu and created a GUI as well, to set up easily the VarioMenu and the WBar. VarioMenu uses the Wbar in a different way. Usually the User runs Applications from Docks like Wbar etc. But in this case the Wbar doesn't execute Applications. It uses its Icons as categories and does change the Icon Selection on the Desktop, when clicked on a Wbar Icon.

The User just selects a category, adds Icons to the Desktop, and after changing to another category, the Icons will be automatically saved for the previous category.

Not much work to do to configure the VarioMenu.



3.) Additions to the Basic OS:

I will try to build each VSP Puppy with a standard list of applications and RunScripts - if possible.

Current definition of applications is:

- AppBuilder_Template-1.0.pet - builds an out of the box usable GtkDialog-GUI from a Template

- Design-Switcher-0.3.pet - switch Wallpaper, Icon-Sets, GtkDialog-Theme and Openbox-Theme from a single GUI
- Dir-to-ISO-2.0.pet - makes bootable ISOs by right-click (if bootloader is in the directory)

- SFS-SimpleScript-1.0.3.pet - again the pearl (8-bit quoted)
- Shutdown-GUI-1.0.pet - shutdown-GUI from LazY Puppy (without its special save or not to save to save file functions)
- SoundSwitcher-0.1.pet - switches system sounds

These VSP Puppies are now renamed at remastering. I did decide to rename these Puppies to prevent not to have too many puppies using equal names.

Each of these Puppies comes by default with 30 activated desktops (Openbox). Dektop 1, 2, 3, 4 and Desktop 5 are independent, which means they do not use a VarioMenu-Category. Desktops 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and Desktop 19 are NOT independent. They use a VarioMenu-Category, which means switching a VarioMenu-Categorie will switch the Openbox Desktop also and switching the Openbox Desktop will switch also the VarioMenu-Category. They also predefined to categories like Graphics, Multimedia etc. Desktop 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29 and Desktop 30 are not predefined to VarioMenu Categories. These Desktop/VarioMenu Categories are free for the users need.

But predefined VarioMenu Categories can be changed though.

All Desktops can be activated by Keyboard Shortcuts. It is used: Alt, Ctrl-Alt and Ctrl-Alt-Shift. Switching the Opembox Desktop by Openbox Menu will not switch the VarioMenu-Category. Here are the definitions (will be standard in all VSP Puppies) for the Keyboardshortcuts in use:

Alt

- 1 - Desktop 1 - independent
- 2 - Desktop 2 - independent
- 3 - Desktop 3 - independent
- 4 - Desktop 4 - independent
- 5 - Desktop 5 - independent
- 6 - Desktop 6 - VarioMenu - Help & Guides 6
- 7 - Desktop 7 - VarioMenu - VSP Desktop 7
- 8 - Desktop 8 - VarioMenu - Audio Editing 8
- 9 - Desktop 9 - VarioMenu - Image Editing 9
- 0 - Desktop 10 - VarioMenu - Office 10

Ctrl-Alt

- 1 - Desktop 11 - VarioMenu - Settings 11
- 2 - Desktop 12 - VarioMenu - Development 12
- 3 - Desktop 13 - VarioMenu - Favorites 13
- 4 - Desktop 14 - VarioMenu - Install 14
- 5 - Desktop 15 - VarioMenu - Internet 15
- 6 - Desktop 16 - VarioMenu - Multimedia 16
- 7 - Desktop 17 - VarioMenu - Tools 17
- 8 - Desktop 18 - VarioMenu - Science 18
- 9 - Desktop 19 - VarioMenu - Video Editing 19
- 0 - Desktop 20 - VarioMenu - User

Ctrl-Alt-Shift

- 1 - Desktop 21 - VarioMenu - User
- 2 - Desktop 22 - VarioMenu - User
- 3 - Desktop 23 - VarioMenu - User
- 4 - Desktop 24 - VarioMenu - User
- 5 - Desktop 25 - VarioMenu - User
- 6 - Desktop 26 - VarioMenu - User
- 7 - Desktop 27 - VarioMenu - User
- 8 - Desktop 28 - VarioMenu - User
- 9 - Desktop 29 - VarioMenu - User
- 0 - Desktop 30 - VarioMenu - User

None of these Desktops has predefined any icons available. As described above, its easy for the user, to set up a desktop for the users need.

Hi.

Thank you for checking it out. The credits goes to playdayz, because of the wonderful THD. I've just made some additions of my SFS P.L.U.S. applications and some useful tools like don570s right-click-tool collection..

It's just a first step to a full featured ready to use by installing it V(arioMenu) S(FS) P(.L.U.S.) Puppy-Builder/Updater.

I would like to see some screenshots, if you have anything set up.

One special Tip:

If you do remaster with the SFS P.L.U.S. Remaster Suite and want to add some files outside the regularly updated directories, go to /root/my-roxapps/SFS-PLUS-Remaster and create an empty file named firstinstall. If then running SFS P.L.U.S. Remaster Suite, it will give some special options. Just activate option 'Don570's Right-Click Tools added' and it will keep everything in:

/usr/bin
/usr/doc
/usr/local
/usr/sbin
/usr/share

This is my SFS P.L.U.S. Remaster Suite development back door! Smile

Hi, thanks. I'm not quite at the remastering level yet, more of a tinkering at the edges sort of user, but I've been using it for general use since I downloaded it without any problems. It does everything I need, but I'm not a very demanding user. I'll get more adventurous as I continue to use it.

Thanks again.
