PostPosted: Sun 16 Jun 2013, 21:05    Post_subject: Compositing packages  

Compositing options for use with Openbox

This is a pet compiled by nilsonmorales, xcompmgr-dana (a fork of xcompmgr) which gives smooth compositing to Openbox:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/64700867/programas/xcompmgr_dana-1.1.3.pet?dl=1

To manage compositing options you have to edit the file /root/Startup/xcompmgr. Get more information about xcompmgr here:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xcompmgr

If you use Xlock, note that xcompmgr-dana will break it.

For more advanced composition, try the Beryl pets from here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=66371

Beryl is a window manager itself, but Openbox is used as a fall-back wm in case Beryl crashes (if you don't see anymore special effects then something caused Beryl to crash, for example I noticed that it happens in Precise when Wine is run).

The newest Raring distro is incompatible with this software.

PostPosted: Wed 17 Jul 2013, 23:41    Post_subject: Sound working: OpenboxPlus 1.5.3 & pemasu's raring 3.9.9  

Hi vicmz & don570,

Sorry about being a little late to the game. I was just going to post a "thank you" to vicmz but read thru the thread and noted don570's post just above. Sound is working using OpenboxPlus 1.5.3 in pemasu's raring 3.9.9. So either pemasu's latest build or vicmz quietly solved the problem.
But since I'm here let me interject some hopefully constructive criticism. Not regarding the OpenboxPlus 1.5.3, which overcame the two problems I had with Openbox + Extras: absence of "show desktop/Minimize All Windows" on Lxpanel taskbar and figuring out which ww-switcher to use. Rather, the criticism is that there wasn't a post with link from Openbox + Extras to OpenboxPlus.
Unfortunately, the Forum kind-of just evolved without planning. Usually, "the well-minded search" will lead in the right direction, but you still have to know what words to plug into it. Unfortunately, OpenboxPlus gets buried somewhere with Openbox + extras hogging top results. This "getting lost in the labyrinth" is fairly common, but usually takes the form of waiting patiently for the expected next version of a puplet to show up on a thread only to discover, a couple weeks later, that it show up on a new thread.
So while I know that devs have a great deal on their plates and already do more than we mere users have any reason to hope, I can only ask that, when relevant, they try to remember to link a new thread to the old thread.

Vicmz, thanks again for your splendid work.

Sorry, I thought I did Embarassed , but thanks to you I could check the former thread and link to this one in the first post, to help users find it.

Thank you, mikeslr.

Hi vicmz,

You did. First line. Bolded and in large print. My bad.

Thanks again for your continuing improvements of a great application.

Installed 1.6 beta in Precise 5.7.1 retro. No hitches at all. Then added SpaceFM with plugins, acpid, acpitools, emendo etc and removed jwm, rox, inbuilt browsers, added my Tint2 panel and trimmed it all up a bit for a so far very stable and efficient openbox precise 5.7.1 at around 115Mb on the SFS.

Thanks,

Edited 10/03/2013: event_manager left in, using daily and playing with themes. BIG difference in cpu use between themes! I'm currently using Adwaita and am pleased with it overall. All in all continues to please.

PostPosted: Thu 17 Oct 2013, 15:17    Post_subject: Problem with pfind and openbox  

Hi vicmz

I've found a problem with the use of pfind under openbox which I've reported on the pfind thread.

The problem affects both OpenboxPlus and LxPup13.10.

Cheers
peebee

PostPosted: Thu 07 Nov 2013, 13:10    Post_subject: OpenboxPlus 1.6.0
Sub_title: released
 

v1.6.0 released
- Upgrades: Openbox 3.5.0, PupShutdown 2.0 (radky), Lxpanel 0.5.10 (01micko/slacko repo).
- Additions: PupClockset 2.2 (radky), Take a Shot! 1.3 (SFR)
- Press the PrintScreen key to take an instant full screen shot for editing in mtPaint (Shinobar)
- Lxpanel system monitors: CPU, RAM.
- Default theme including icons, gtk, cursor and wallpaper. See screenshots in the first post.
- More Openbox themes and a small selection of cursor themes included in the main package.
- Menu fix to set the traditional Puppy menu for category order (Jejy69 & Peebee's work on Lxpup).
- Reload Lxpanel from Menu > Desktop > Lxpanel restart panel. Useful when you change icon themes or need to refresh the Lxpanel menu.


This package was built the traditional way. As most of you know, OpenboxPlus is a remix including many existing configurations, utilities and themes, although it does have special adaptations that are not usually seen in Openbox Puppies. I wanted to learn how to setup certain things, some of them requested by community users, but when it becomes too complex it's just not fun. So, instead of playing the developer I'll simply add fixes and themes as I find/receive them. Many thanks to all of you guys for your direct/indirect contributions, which make for a more enjoyable Openbox experience in Puppy Linux.

Note to Vicmz--

you might consider adding Bulldog finder to the package
since pfind has a bug in it.

I am still working on improvements to it

I've totally forgot to add it! Thank you Don. But I'll have to do it later, the new package should be online by tomorrow.
