PostPosted: Sat 14 Dec 2013, 17:19    Post subject: Dpup Wheezy version  

14 Dec 2013

Here is a version of LxPup-by-SFS for Pemasu's Dpup Wheezy 3.5.2

The SFS is actually the Slacko one:
lxpup-by-sfs_S.5.6.04.sfs 1b9e51ae27147ed284248e0c1103eb80 14.4MB

The setup pet is however unique to Dpup Wheezy:
lxpupsetup-d.3.5.2.pet 0997979faba7c1ce69c090c8e5755531 722KB

Install as described in post #1

Cheers

Here is a work around for the icon problems in newer woof-CE pups, it should only run if the autostart dir is populated.

Code:
#!/bin/sh
if [ -d $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/autostart/ ];then
 for file in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/autostart/*.desktop
  do
  [ "$file" ]||exit
  EXEC=`grep ^Exec $file|cut -d '=' -f2|awk '{print $1}'` #strip options
  [ "$EXEC" = "firewallstaterun" ] && EXEC=firewallstate #work around
  echo $EXEC #DEBUG
  PID=
  CNT=0
  until [ "$PID" -o $CNT = 9 ]
   do
    echo -n "$CNT " #DEBUG
    PID=`pidof $EXEC`
    echo " pid: $PID" #DEBUG
    [ "$PID" ] && kill -9 $PID && break
    CNT=$(($CNT + 1))
    sleep 0.5 #only sleep if needed
   done
  done
 #sleep 1
 for desktop in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/autostart/*.desktop
  do
  echo $desktop #DEBUG
  xdg-open $desktop
  done
fi


Goes in ~/Startup/
#Comment the lines marked #DEBUG

You can do away with that hack in 1-lxde-startup.sh (line 6), or at least make it conditional, something like a test for the desktop files, or even better, kill and rerun all files in /root/startup or as a last resort add some sleep at the top of the code I just posted, and call it zhack (or something with a z so it execs last).

Gosh!! Thanks Mick.....

Grateful if you could say in simple terms what your patch does?

And do you know why it is needed? Is it a bug in lxpanelx?

Will the patch be needed as a permanent feature of any systems using lxpanel/lxpanelx?

I had started to work out last night where the problem lay and had discovered that if I moved all the tray items from .config/autostart to /etc/autostart and removed the line #6 then the icons worked unless a panel restart was done. But that was as far as i had got.

Thanks
Peter

BTW - for other interested readers, this only applies to the new testing versions of Slacko5.7 which contain new svg icons.

Hi Peter,

It's a bug in lxpanelx. A timing issue. As SFR stated lxpanel is unaffected.

I would report it to the developer if I were you. He may be able to add a few milliseconds delay or track down the issue that causes it.

Oh, and if he tells you try starting from /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart (aka $XDG_CONFIG_DIR/LXDE/autostart) file the same issue occurs. (that file can be in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/LXDE/ too)

What my work around does (and that's all it is) is kill each process when it is actually started (because it doesn't get the background colour) then restart them. It's pretty simple actually, just finds each process ID when it starts, kills it, then once they are all killed it restarts them. The slow down is powerapplet_tray as on desktops it doesn't run, so the full 4 seconds (sleep 0.5 x 8 ) [ ha.. cant post digit 8 character ')' on the forum, get Cool ] is taken up. Not a huge issue. I think that restart you are doing is rather the problem with the cpu maxing out issue.

In my tests it works flawlessly with line 6 commented (in 1-lxde-startup.sh)

HTH

PostPosted: Mon 16 Dec 2013, 14:04    Post subject: Setup pet for woof-ce built Slacko 5.7  

Here is the setup pet for the Slacko5.7 test builds (woof-ce builds).

Many thanks to 01micko for the system-tray fix for LxPanelX as I would have been very sad to have to stop using it.

I've changed the background to a lighter one as the new tray icons for battery and sound do not work on a dark background.

Cheers

Hi PeeBee,

Will you incorporate this fic also in 13.11 (or 13.12 / 14.01) ?
Or do you plan to work on a Slacko 5.7 release with LXDE ?

Hi Volhout

I will track the Slacko 5.7 pre-releases to check that the LxPup can be built - the pet above being the first change needed for the new woof-ce builds - and then will make a new LxPup iso - probably 14.01 I would imagine - when Slacko 5.7 is released.

see: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=746759#746759

LxPup13.11 on Slacko5.6 does not require the changes.

Cheers
peebee

Im using it with Quirky Tahir, it's very nice thanks

I had a slight problem where if you open up several programs the clock goes off the screen because the taskbar gets bigger, instead of making the program icons smaller.

Also it seems to do something to the command line because when I try to compile something it complains about the arguments

The lxpupsetup pet for Quirky-Tahr has been re-uploaded....

#slenkar - I don't see your panel tab problem with LxPup - have you changed any panel settings?

Checked Q-T - no problem there either.....

Cheers

Don't believe so....if you can give more details of what you are trying to do and what problems you are experiencing I might be able to duplicate and investigate....

I assume it's the Quirky-Tahr pets you are using? Have you tried your problem task on vanilla Q-T without the lxpup pets?
