Subject description: Slacko 5.7 remastered
 

Hi all,

This is JXS. It is a remastered derivative of Slacko 5.7.
Main features currently include various window managers and panels, which have been mixed and matched to offer a variety of different Desktop Environments. You get the same Slacko functionality, but with various different looks.

Thank You to 01micko and everyone else who had a hand in the creation of Slacko 5.7

The "JX" stands for Jwm + Xfce4-panel. It is the default Desktop Environment for this Pup, when it is first run. The "S" stands for Slacko, of course.

Version 3 is now available. Previous versions are regarded as inferior and have been removed to conserve space on Smokey01's server. (thank you for the access, Smokey)

Hi Tman sounds interesting Very Happy
I always wonder if you might make a pup that was somewhat like solidpup again Confused
Solidpup was very Cool would like to see similar but for newer hardware Wink
Might this be a start ? Just thinking out loud Wink
Good to see your are still making puppies ! Keep it up !
And as always Thanks Tman Very Happy

Funny, you should say that. I actually do have something like that in mind. Right now I am just experimenting with Xfce panel. I think I might try combining it with Metacity next. But eventually, I will add Tint2, and probably Icewm to the mix.
In the long run, I will probaby focus on only 2 versions of pups... one for newer hardware like Slacko64, and one for older hardware..right now Barry's Precise retro is the candidate of choice.

Sounds good Tman ! I will say I would lean more toward retro precise Wink
Only because its been my experience that it works well on old and new alike Very Happy
I must say it is prob one of Barry's best ! It would be quite Cool to see it taken to the next
level like your solidpup Wink With that said I feel too that slacko64 will be a big hit just not with older boxes ! But its Looking good so far ! I have to say both are excellent Wink
Thanks again Tman ! Very Happy

For all testers, there is a hidden small JWM-bar in the top-middle edge of the screen, which I did not mention earlier.

I finally managed to get Metacity to compile. OMG that was a pain in the @$$! Mad One of it's dependencies (zenity) wouldn't compile properly, until it was patched. Evil or Very Mad
Not sure if I wanna use Xfce panel with Metacity.. using the panel with Jwm or Xfwm might be better.

Now, to find out how to configure the themes for it Metacity...

I've been playing with Jwm + Tint2 combo and they are working nicely together.

I will use this combo for the next releasee and add xfce4panel to xfwm window manager.

Then perhaps Metacity with fbpanel. I want to reserve openbox for lxpanel for those who wish to add it. Wink

Hello all,

I am currently uploading JX_Slacko 5.7 version 0.2 to Smokey01's server.
I am about to head off to work in 20 minutes so I'll update the first post later tonight or sometime tommorrow.
I've added Xfwm4, Tint2, Openbox, Wbar, Conky, Zsnes, along with quite a few hacks and tweaks to get the Window Managers and Panels to work together nicely. Please try it out.. I don't plan to upload a new release of this derivative until at least another month. Once it's uploaded, you can download it from this link ---> http://www.smokey01.com/Tman/

The terminal commands to try out the different Window Manager/Panel combinations are in the bottom of the conky window.

Happy testing! Smile

Hi gcmartin,

Did you mean the bar option to "conky" your desktop? Wink
But you gave me a good idea. (thanks!) I think I will try to out Peebee's "compiz by sfs" to see if it is compatable..if not, then I will have to try and tweak it.
Glad you like it, gc Smile

@all,

I've found a bug in the command "restarwm tint2" from the terminal is not fully functional. I forgot to copy a new .xinitrc file over during the remaster process. Also I have a fix for the tray icons not displaying in Openbox mode and xfwm4 mode. I will create a patch tonight..
Gotta get ready for work now...

Hi Tman

My "compiz" sfs is intended to add compiz to LxPup so I think you will need some bits of LxPup if you want it to run on JX_Slacko - although I guess you may already have added whats needed in creating JX_Slacko from Slacko....

Let me know if I can help....
Cheers
peebee

Glad you like it, partsman. You can make conky transparent by editing line 53 of the file named /root/.conky/conkyrc_Holo
simply change "own_window_transparent" from no to yes.
For some reason though, it takes a while for the background to become transparent.. around 30 seconds or so on my computer.
I kept the conky background black for easier reading, but yes it does not nicer with a transparent background. Smile

Thanks, peebee! If I get stuck, I'll PM you Wink

@ all,

EDIT - the next day : The patch is now uploaded.. see link on first post.. this patch will be removed in future releases, as it will not be needed anymore.
