PostPosted: Tue 14 Jun 2005, 13:30    Post subject: ROX tips  

to move (or copy or symlink) a file, drag the file with the middle mouse button (the wheel)

to open 2 or more rox windows from a script, just include the paths for each window

for example, to open rox windows showing my-applications and my-documents, type:

rox /root/my-applications /root/my-documents

you can also open files, like txt files, mp3 files, html files ... they will open with whatever program rox would use if you clicked the file ... for example:

rox readme.txt movie.avi

to open a new rox window, you can click a folder or the home button or the up-arrow button with the middle mouse button

rox bookmarks are useful too ... you can open a rox window showing my-documents, press ctrl+4, and instantly go to my-documents any time by pressing 4 ... similarly, you can set a bookmark to show my-applications when you press 5

you can add items to the SendTo menu from a script or a dotpup the same way as i added template items to the New menu

Wot? Middle mouse button? It's worn away . . .
No wait I never had one . . . I did try (have in the last 3 versions of Puppy) my other mouse which is a scroll mouse - serial type. Puppy is a bit skitty on this - so not working. Is it worth investing in a 3 button Linux mouse or a scroll mouse, or can I use the olde click both buttons to simulate the 3rd button trick? - somehow?)

Smile
PS. Many thanks for the tips Cool

linux uses the third button a lot ... you can add -2button to Xoptions (run the video wizard) and pressing the 2 mouse buttons simulataneously should emulate a click of the third mouse button

a 3 button mouse (or better still, wheel mouse) is more satisfactory

The README says to type "smartctrl -a /dev/hda" to get the info on a drive. I believe that the correct command is "smartctl -a /dev/hda". No "r" in the last part of "smartctrl".

you're right ... i must have typed that instead of actually executing the line in rxvt and copy/pasting the tested and working command (which is what i usually do, because it's so easy to make a tiny mistake)

i haven't really tested the smartd daemon mode extensively ... i did test that it actually starts and stops, of course

Peter, I just tried the same thing with v1.0.3 full version. I worked. However, I have no idea how to use pawm.

I tried it too.

Move to the bottom of the screen to activate the menu bar - which seems to be very minimal - just as it says . . .
- eh maybe it is too minimal, all I got was a bar, no menus?
