Sub_title: Small System Tray Application to refresh the ROX Desktop
 

Hi.

This is a small application sitting in the system tray, which refreshes the desktop immediately when clicking it. It is made for the use of the ROX desktop and to refresh the PWidgets as well as the WBar.

It is this my first application ever published written in C (thanks to some help by 01micko).

The attached .gz is a fake .gz file. Just remove the fake .gz and make it executable, if necessary.

After this put it into /usr/bin and put a symbolic link to it into $HOME/Startup - and click it.

That's just all.

Here are the .pot file and the Icon used.

Both are fake .gz files.

Put the Icon into /usr/share/pixmaps.

Hi.

Thanks for all the translations. Will try to create a NLS package later.

I came to this since I'm using the PWidgets in almost all of my LazY Puppy Systems. Sometimes after booting into X desktop, some of the widgets aren't properly shown on the desktop. It's quite in-comfortable to restart X then or to call the PWidgets GUI to restart the PWidgets so that all widgets are shown on the desktop.

To refresh the widgets easily was my main purpose and since I'm using also the WBar in almost all of my LazY Puppy Systems, I included to refresh the WBar as well.

So Desktop Refresh means (in German): Arbeitsfläche auffrischen.

Is this a bad DE to EN translation?
Should I rename it?

In your investigation, have you learned how to refresh pup_event (drive icons on desktop) without restarting X?
I am interested Smile


Thanks
Sigmund

Yes, partially.

Currently this is just a dirty hack and the default puppy icons on the desktop (like write, text, connect etc.) are getting lost. That's why I didn't include this option into the binary.

I need to examine the code of VarioMenu and build a function to save these icons. VarioMenu already has all the functions to add and/or remove parts to/from PuppyPin. Just need to modify some of them for this special purpose.

Though, the drive icons aren't present when refreshing the desktop starts and one can see them re-draw and re-aline at the desktop refresh.

I will come up with this, when completely solved and successfully tested in all my LazY Puppy Systems.

I have solved now to keep the default Icons (like write, draw, connect etc.), but the drive icons do randomly disappear from the desktop. So this needs further investigations. Crying or Very sad
