PostPosted: Tue 23 Apr 2013, 09:49    Post_subject: Simple PupSave 0.5 20130420  

There are some days, I found this thread. Like you, I think the utility 'MakePupSave/SimpleSave' is a good idea.

Based on SimpleSave-0.4, I made ​​some modifications:
- added localisation, help , information
- test pupmode & Yad presence
- detect save folder directory (RSH method)
- added .4fs
- lang : en, fr, de
- and other...

Proposals/Questions:
1 - I can not add a third format in the main GUI, I wanted to offer three choices (ext2/ext3/ext4).
2 - I am looking for translators (to check the English translation and translated into other languages).

Cordialement,

Hi ASRI éducation.

That's pretty cool!

Meanwhile I did made some work on this as well and have created also a GUI version of the SimpleSave Script. It shows all existing save files inside the gui and has option to remove them, if not longer needed/wanted.

But you are a little faster to publish, so, will keep it private.

I've had a look into your script and found some missing stuff

- the MSGMODEX definitions inside the script are missing the $ in front of it

- to have ext2, ext3, ext4 as a choice inside the yad gui do use
Code:
--field="$FIELDFORMAT":CB "ext2!ext3!ext4" \

Works over here (yad 0.12).

Hope that helps

RSH

P.S.

The script getbootdir to detect the boot directory / save folder is made by myself, that's right so far as your script says.

But the method to get the $APPDIR and the $TMPLANG is the older so called zigbert method.

Very good news!
You are obviously much better than me to write a script.
Users will obviously gain.
If I can help, you know where contact me.

PostPosted: Fri 10 May 2013, 08:52    Post_subject: 20130510 SimplePupSave v0.7  

20130510 SimplePupSave v0.7

Visually, it hardly change anything for the user, I basically tried to improve the background tasks.

Changes
- Variables: added values ​​pupsave size min/max & default format
- Help: added new tab
- Change the full name of the file pupsave
- Bug fix: now the utility warns if a pupsave file with the same name already exists
- Update translations fr-en-de
- Added information during creation of pupsave file
- Improving information pupmode

Improvements I have not succeeded
1 - The main window (written with yad) exit/restart when the user clicks on the buttons 'space free/help/information': it is not useful and it is inconvenient for the user who loses every time choices (directory, size, name, format). Does anyone know how to prevent exit/restart of the main window?
2 - Help GUI (gtk) offers a window whose height is too high. Does anyone know how to limit its height?

Improvements I have not tried
- View the list of existing pupsave files.
- Propose to remove existing pupsave files.
- Automatically check the free space on the home partition before creating the new pupsave file.

Sincerely,

Hello ASRI éducation,
Try putting button actions into a function:
Code:
function free_space () {
   partview &
}
export -f free_space

Then in yad gui:
Code:
--button="$BUTTONFREESPACE:bash -c 'free_space'"

Hello stu91.

Thank you!
It works for 'free space' button.
I'll try to do the same for the buttons 'help' and 'information'.

PostPosted: Sat 22 Jun 2013, 06:06    Post_subject: Blank pupsave ; small but efficient !  

Nowadays, if you have only one save on your USB stick, you are not offered the choice zero to start a new job, the distro boots straight on the existing savefile. You must create a second one to get the choice between zero one and two.
The ASRI's pet makes it.

Try to avoid boot partition of el senor Windows 7 (sda1 or sda4)

Pub : Will be erased next visite !

I just back development of simplepupsave utility.
I started to make some significant improvements, but I confess that Yad does not suit me (I think I prefer gtk).
The interface written by RSH is gtk, and I trust him for doing a good job.
So, I wonder if I have to continue development.
If I leave, it will encourage RSH to share its utility.
Cordialement,
