PostPosted: Sat 04 Jul 2015, 06:42    Post subject:  Retrovol-0.14.3.2-X extended version  

This is an extension of retrovol-0.14.1 by Pizzasgood. Geoffrey and I have added two new right click menu entries, Change Icon Color and
Multiple Sound Card Wizard (our updated version). Icons, retrovol_speaker, mscw etc.... are all included in the .pet. It requires yad which most puppies have except slacko, but it's in the repo. Install the .pet and restart X.

Source? Wink

It has been on my To Do for a while to add the 'retrovol_speaker' functionality to retrovol, but there is a hitch.. I need to learn C++!

I like the look of the changes to mscw; might make their way into the 'official' (for want of a better term) package.

Good idea.

Really neat! Works A-OK on Precise 5.7.1 retro. Nice to have the mscw right there.

Terribly minor thing - the tray icon was initially invisible, even after restarting X. Right-clicking the icon color chooser (itself, very cool!) and OK-ing Gcolor made it visible. Saved and re-booted... all is good.

May be because I'm running LxPanel/Openbox, though...

Thanks! (for your recent Minty icon theme pack, too, rg66 - real purty!)

When compiled, it doesn't make the icons in /usr/share/retrovol/images. Added and re-uploaded, thanks.

Edit: It does make them, I just didn't add them, lol.

Are you sure?

Tahrpup 6.0.3 frugal on HDD

Installed the Retrovol-0.14.2-X pet

Had the same problem with the icon not visible untile I selected a color change.

Any chance these icons are starting out as white in color?
My taskbar is white.

Seems the icon was always black by default.

Yes, they are white.

I think we posted about the same time i edited my post

Would not black be a better default color to start?

I was thinking black or maybe even grey but no matter what color is default, someone will have a taskbar that color.

FWIW - My (LxPanel) taskbar is a green-grey gradient image - white definitely would have shown, but didn't.

Updated to 0.14.3, changed icon default color to black. No need for retrovol_speaker, the icon color picker script now uses sed. See first post to download and remember to restart X

Hello rg66.

I have small problems with retrovol-0.14.3-X.pet

1 - The interface is in English, despite the presence of a translation file. With the 0.13 release, the interface is in French.

2 - Right-clic on icon of the tray > Select 'Change Icon Color' > In GUI 'Retrovol Icon Color', select 'Cancel' = The svg files are automatically modified, they all have the visual of audio-volume-none.svg Sad See screenshot below.

Regards

Sorry, I should have stated in the first post that it was compiled without NLS support as the .po files were not in sync with the source files. I think Geoffrey might have a go at correcting them and if so, we will re-compile with NLS and upload.

We've corrected the exit color-picker error and uploaded v0.14.3.1, thanks.

If anyone would like, I have refactored retrovol_speaker to include the color-picker so it is no longer a cli app. It pops the color-picker and once you press 'OK' the icon changes to whatever was picked. There is one "feature" which needs addressing; if you close the program with the [x] (abort) the default is a black icon. It's pure C/gtk - no external calls.

The idea here is that it will be converted to C++ and offered as a pull request to Pizzasgood's github repo.

I think as far as mscw is concerned, it will always be an extension, since it is puppy specific, but the color picker is a needed feature in the base code IMHO.

Attached is the source and a bin compiled in slacko (32 bit). Might work in some puppies. The code is gettext'd.

EDIT: minor bug detected in the error checking for the opening of files so I reuploaded after 4 downloads. If you garabbed it and you are not a developer, don't worry too much, there is minimal chance of this bug rearing its head.
