Arrow Arrow Arrow Smile Razz Very Happy

Happy to anounce i have made a customized version of the EDE (Equinox Desktop Environment) for puppy. I have used EDE 1.0.2 rpms. The latest version available is 1.0.4 but rpms are not available at source forge and version 1.0.3 rpms fail to open with unrpm Crying or Very sad

EDE Screen shots at --> http://ede.sourceforge.net/page/screenshots

An introduction

EDE has 3 main components
1. edewm - the wm
2. edeworkpanel - the taskbar
3. eiconman - the desktop

as in puppy we are using rox to manage the desktop, so i have not used eiconman. Only 1 and 2 are implemented. I am working on the menu at present. Will release a dotpup as soon as it is completed.

I guess you had more patience.
I kept getting error loading some kind of image I forget.
So, when are you going to make a dotpup or a tar.gz or something for the rest of us???

You might give me the files, and I'll make a dotpup.

I use the dotpup-wizard for this:

http://www.murga.org/%7Epuppy/viewtopic.php?t=2138

Can I download them somewhere?
Or send them via EMail: MarkUlrich+++@---gmx.de

Remove +++ and --- , I don't want spambots to regognize my adress.

PostPosted: Wed 28 Sep 2005, 17:13    Post subject: New Way of installing  

My unfamiliarity with linux has been hampering me in making a dotpup
but i have found out a new way of installing files.

zip files can be used to install out EDE without using dotpup

several zip files used because of size constraints on the forum

THOSE USING PUPPY 1.0.4 Need to download ALL ZIP FILES
1. usr1.zip
2. usr2.zip
3. usr3.zip
4. lib1.zip
5. lib2.zip


THOSE USING PUPPY 1.0.5 Need to download ONLY
1. usr1.zip
2. usr2.zip
3. usr3.zip
the library dependencies are provided by puppy-1.0.5

APLHA APLHA APLHA - i dont know weather any body has tried this or not and what can it do. Before istalling EDE please backup your pupxxx file so that if something goes wrong you are safe.

place these zip files in the ~ folder <-- the topmost folder

click on usr1.zip <-- guiTAR utility will open - if it does not start guiTAR manually

select all files and click on EXTRACT

that all - repeat with other zip files.

the menu was made for puppy-1.0.4 so some things might not work in 1.0.5

a new menu for 1.0.5 will be comming soon

PostPosted: Wed 28 Sep 2005, 17:49    Post subject: There was some confusion  

NOTE : i just found out that the libs are required for 1.0.5 also
i had a copy 0f /usr stored in /root/usr and so the libraries were showing in my /usr/lib folder and i thought that they are not required for 1.0.5

NOTE 2: VERY IMPORTANT - the binaries that are extracted in /usr/bin folder have to be given executable permission - without this ede wont start

NOTE 3 : to start ede --> xwin startede
startede has been edited to keep rox as the desktop. this will not start the iconmanager. to start the icon manager edit startede. and comment out rox in .xinitrc

I made a dotpup (2.3MB):

http://noforum.de/dotpups/equinox.pup

I seperated 2 System-libraries to avoid conflicts when you want to uninstall equinox using pupget.

If you don't have them on your system, install them too, or equinox will not work.

Some impressions:
Extremely fast Desktop, looks more like Windows than Fvwm95.

Unfortunately the panel minimizes to invisibility and all open windows become invisible, if I turn Shadows on/off using the Xorg-Xserver.
But most people will not use that, so it does not matter so much.

Nice thing, maybe someone should write a script that updates the Equinox-Menue with the jwm-entries.

How do you change to EDE from another WM? It doesn't show up as a menu option.

bombayrockers explained it further up.

Exit X
Then type
xwin startede

Not all programs are listed in the EDE-Startmenue.

If you run equinox-Desktop, open in rox the folder /usr/bin

There click on the files beginning with e

Equinox requires some more configuration for Puppy.
