can each of these options be left out at compile time?
I'm really addicted to the tabs form using Konsole in KDE, but I'm not interested in the eye-candy and compiling them out could make the package smaller.

don't know. I grabbed it from VectorLinux with additional library

I love those tabs, Firefox, konsole. mrxvt is about 200KB larger than rxvt, could be used anywhere in place of rxvt, even opions. I am using it myself.

From mrxvt --help:

Mrxvt v0.3.13
Options: XPM,Jpeg,PNG,transparent,fade,tint,textshadow,utmp,menubar,XIM,
multichar_languages,scrollbars=rxvt+NeXT+xterm+sgi+plain,xft,thai,Greek,
strings,frills,linespace,24bit,selectionscrolling,smart-resize,256colour,
cursorBlink,pointerBlank,session management,.Xdefaults

The list of options tells you which options where selected for the ./configure step of the build by the packager. Not a bad idea, I wish more executables would tell you how they were built.

This is not a terrible set of options (for example they left the debug symbols out). Frills, XPM,Jpeg,PNG,transparent,fade,tint,textshadow, are all eye-candy related to allow fancy background. It would be interesting to see how much the program shrinks when leaving these out.

not sure about the need for Thai language and greek keyboard either, does puppy support those languages?

Interestingly enough the 0.3 series doesn't appear on their web site in the list of "stable" versions.


All in all it's not a bad mix of options for functionnality vs size, especially if you want to take advantage of the eye-candy for the background.

using upx on the executable should cut in down by half or so

drj, mrxvt is SUPER COOL!

I really like the tabs. Thanks. Attached is an Icon that I think will work really nice on the desktop.

Icewm 1.2.21

i was going to make an Icewm 1.2.21 Unleashed package, and probably a dotpup package too

i have not finished it yet (testing, debugging, configuring, making design decisions, etc etc etc, take most of time in making a package)

here are the basic binaries that i've been experimenting with, if someone wants them

i can edit this post later, and upload a new dotpup here with the same name

this is not an "official" finished package

I had so much confidence in you that I just overwrote the old binaries.

Then I logged out and restarted X. It loaded in a little less than 2 seconds. But then again I have a slow computer. Smile

your confidence may be misplaced ... all i know is that it's been running ok on my machine, so far anyway

i commented out what seemed to be a debug message that shouldn't be there (it was filling up xerrs.txt)

there are probably compile options that don't need to be enabled ... especially for an Unleashed package ... i didn't care much when it was installed on the hard drive

i think it should work ok with 1.2.20's config files

anyway, post if you find any bugs

PostPosted: Tue 05 Jul 2005, 11:22    Post subject: Complete Trash  

Here is the "Complete Trash" application. If no one complains of bugs, then I'd say it was ready for the index. It should work in any window manager and any version of Puppy. Let me know of any issues.
EDIT
Uploaded a new version (7-6-2005) Added "exits" to the code. This will keep it from hanging up when something like xmms is playing and the trash trys to play its own sound file.
EDIT #2
Uploaded an updated version. (7-10-2005) You can now drag multiple items to the trash simultaneously. The sound file will also not play at all if another application like xmms is using the sound card. This prevents the delayed trash sound.
EDIT #3
Uploaded a new version (8-30-2005) Used Puppian's idea to keep from restarting the pinboard. Now just the trash icon refreshes. This makes for a quicker refresh and helps a lot on slow hardware. It also works better with Rox 2.20 this way.

PostPosted: Wed 06 Jul 2005, 05:00    Post subject: Trash dematerialiser  

Tried the Trash dot pup on a brand new install of 1.0.3 and am having the same problem. I create a file in root. Drag to the desktop and then into the bin.
The file on the desktop changes to a white on red lettering icon which says "ERROR" - so the icon has been deleted but not this "Newfile" which remains on the desktop. Then I tried right clicking and "Empty the trash"
the Newfile entry in the dialogue goes but not from the desktop . . .

If I right click with ROX - I can "Remove the item"


We managed to sort some of it out on the IRC channel. Ian likes the dematerilisation sound the bin makes (this sound is very similar to what happens when rematerilising in a new dimension - so I am told)

using googlescraper (google without the ads)
http://www.scroogle.org/
you can get your bin to talk here: (mine already does but they are changing my medication)
http://www.naturalvoices.att.com/demos/

Smile

I am working on my own dot pup and hope to have it tweaked and ready soon. It is a strange piece of software . . . more details soon . . . You lucky Pups

The bin is very useful. You can mount a hard drive with a Windows partition and delete file after file - very therepeutic . . . should keep me amused for years . . .

Cool

desktop icons are not files ... they are lines in a config file ( /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin )

if you drag a file to the desktop, it makes a shortcut on the desktop

you can remove that shortcut by right clicking it and clicking Remove Item

if you drag the shortcut to the Trash shortcut, the file will be move to Trash ... the desktop shortcut will not be touched ... if the file is gone, the shortcut is no longer pointing to a file and it will show a red error message

in other words, you can't delete a desktop shortcut by dragging it to the Trash icon

for that matter, it is not easy to create, move, or delete desktop icons from another program, like a script

Quicktables 2.3 Firewall Script Generator

this asks questions, then creates a firewall script
that adds rules to iptables

Usually, you would run the script from rc.local

this will put the files in a folder called firewall-quicktables, in my-applications
(to uninstall, just delete the folder)

- nat and no nat (firewall only) options
- extremely newbie friendly while still secure and very feature rich
