screenshots:






It works pretty simple.
At first run, it creates a original-set.tar.bz2 of all png and xpm in /usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/.

Then you can choose that or other archives to extract there, and Rox is closed and restarted so that the extracted icons become visible.
Supports localization in .mo textfiles.

Requires Gtkbasic002, for Puppy 3 use that dotpup:

Today I will go to visit my mum and then back to my home in southern germany, so I have no internet.
I will return to the minisys developer here in northern germany in a week or so, then I can post again.

MU, sorry, I have neglected your apps in the Dingo variant that I've been working on. I was very focussed on the mainstream stuff, getting it going, after having built a new Puppy with what I thought were absolute minimum for a good GTK2-based system.

Now I'm looking around to see what I've left out that falls within my selection parameters. I want to avoid duplication, and it would seem best not to have both PuppyBasic and Gtkbasic?
The Gtkbasic package is small, but so is PuppyBasic, and both focus on GTK2 for the GUI.
That icon changer looks useful for Dingo.

Where do you see your future development taking place, PuppyBasic or Gtkbasic, and how do they compare in the maturity?

Gtkbasic is intended to be compatible with Puppybasic.

Only difference:
Puppybasic is a pure comandline application.
So it has no gtk-dependencies, and can be used in console-systems without X.
(it offers Gtk-support only by cally external tools like Xdialog, but itself is compiled without Gtk).

What you could try:

cd /usr/bin
rm -f puppybasic
ln -s gtkbasic002 puppybasic

But it did not try myself, use at own risc!

The other difference:
Puppybasic rarely will be updated, as it does almost everything I need it for.
Gtkbasic will be updated several times in future, in case I have time to add more Gtk-wrappers.
Maybe for a system-utility it is good to have a stable, proven version like puppybasic.
