Hey zigbert.

I like your refreshed and classy pmount & gtkdialog-splash.

Minor issue with gtkdialog-splash:
I don't know if it's only me (Lupuplus-528.005), but -fg parameter doesn't work.
Anyway, the addition of color='"'${fg}'"' makes it running fine.
Line 336:
Code:
          <label>"<b><span color='"'${fg}'"' size='"'${fontsize}'"'>'${text}'</span></b>"</label>

Keep it up, I'm waiting for more mods. Very Happy

Thanks & Greetings!

PostPosted: Sun 23 Jun 2013, 04:20    Post subject: how to get foreground color working ?  

Hi Sigmund,
thanks for this usefull apps !!

Here running whezzy-3.5.2.5 having gtkdialog-splash version 130212 in it (might be the latest).

... I use it now to display reminder messages for action items launched from Osmo (Menu/Task/Advanced etc ...) Very Happy

I can only get black color for the displayed text, whatever the -fg setting.

I dug into gtkdialog-splash script to look for SFR's workaround, and how to insert it ...but nothing found nor working.

Launching the following command lines results in black text on grey background:
Quote:
sh-3.00# gtkdialog-splash -fg black -text "TEXT"
EXIT="Exit on mouse-over"
sh-3.00# gtkdialog-splash -fg white -text "TEXT"
EXIT="Exit on mouse-over"
sh-3.00# gtkdialog-splash -fg red -text "TEXT"
EXIT="Exit on mouse-over"
sh-3.00#


Maybe i missed something
Thanks for any advice.
Charlie

PostPosted: Mon 24 Jun 2013, 04:41    Post subject: gtkdialog-splash icon_width setting  

Hi Sigmund,
The -fg update works nice ! thanks a lot.

I have also tried to set the -icon_width parameter to various sizes ranging from 10 to 500 pixels on a /usr/share/pixmap/ icon ... but the displayed size might keep being circa the default 32 pixel size.
Quote:
sh-3.00# gtkdialog-splash -icon /usr/share/pixmaps/gnumeric/gnumeric-about.png -icon_width 100 -fontsize 72 -fg white -text "TEXT"

Have i missed some syntax?
Thanks again for replying
Charlie

Hey Charlie6 & Zigbert

It seems that -icon_width must be used before -icon, because -icon option (which actually sets the width) is parsed earlier in the code, so if -icon_width is supplied later, the width of the icon remains as the default 32px.

Code:
gtkdialog-splash -icon_width 100 -icon /usr/share/pixmaps/gnumeric/gnumeric-about.png -fontsize 72 -fg white -text "TEXT"

Greetings!

Hi,
last edited: Oooops !.... i forgot to mention that the hereunder mentionned «/usr/bin/yaf-splash» command is, of course, a symlink to /usr/bin/gtkdialog-splash script.

...just for information: the following settings work:
Quote:
# yaf-splash -bg "#EE9F1F"
for extra color settings, not just only red, yellow, green, etc...
Quote:
# yaf-splash -bg red -bg_gradient false -border false -placement top-right -fontsize 16 -text "Here you might place whatever text you would like, that's to say «Here you might place whatever text you would like»"
long text is placed within double-quotes for display of long text

hope this might help Smile
Charlie

It is great that gtksplash works, but in fact it is a bit outdated already. A svg-splash would give a much better control over the cosmetics...

Anyone?

PostPosted: Wed 03 Jul 2013, 07:30    Post subject: gtkdialog-splash rounded corners + margin  

Hi,
yet seeking for some more fine tuning ...
how could one get rounded corners (as ist in raring-5.6.94 ...);
and also set the margin (setting -margin 5 or whatever returns the same result...?)
thanks for answering!

I actually toyed with that quite awhile ago. The problem I came across was rendering CJK fonts as the char widths vary. It did look good though but I'm afraid I abandoned and deleted the work!

It would surely be more flexible and faster than passing a wrapper script through an already slowish program (gtkdialog).

PostPosted: Tue 09 Jul 2013, 02:32    Post subject: rounded corners: gtksplash-dialog running in icewm wm  

Hi,
here currently using icewm-1.3.7 as window manager on wheezy-3.5.2.5.

Rounded corners (see "nice to have" in my above post) on window boxes come as default with recent jwm versions (i.e. version 819) - (thanks to Barry and Pemasu answering my question).

Icewm windows produced by gtkdialog-splash come with sharp corners.
As far as i could dig into icewm manual pages, i did'nt yet find references to rounded corners settings.
Moreover, it seems that the window-edge/text margins are bigger in icewm than in jwm.

Thanks for any advice or additional information.
Cheers, charlie
