PostPosted: Wed 05 Oct 2005, 07:10    Post subject: icon manager is buggy  

yes the icon manager does not work properly and that is why i had chosen to stick to rox pinboard as icon manager. i have posted earlier how to start ede with rox as icon manager.

ede is much slower than other window manager but it gives a familiar feel for the winblows refugee. look and feel can be changed using themes.

I should have realised that my problem setting the background was related to Rox 2.2, as described elsewhere by GuestToo, and not Equinox.

The solution is to right click a desktop icon and set the backdrop.

PostPosted: Fri 07 Oct 2005, 04:52    Post subject: eiconman as iconmanager  

Those of who liked the icon manager but till wanted the good features of other wm's suck as icewm can use eiconman as thier icon manager instead of rox in the following manner. equinox needs to be installed for this to work.

1. click on home
2. make visible all the hidden files
3. you will see .xinitrc in it
4. make a copy of it by copying it to .xinitrc-bak
5. open it as text and scroll to the bottom where it says -> rox
6. comment this line and below it put this exec eiconman &
7. save
8. restart x

Wondering if someone has compiled one for the 1.0.6 Puppy or will do for 1.0.7 ?

It does not need to be compiled from new.
Those Puppys are binary-compatible.

As MU said the binaries are compatible, however the menu is not updated. You may update the menu manually. However if you know scripting you can edit the a jwm to fluxbox menu convertor script by MU to work for equinox.

Unfortunately i can do neither. I am just a USER and APPRECIATER. Coding is not in my brains. (However little)

When i tried the available binaries a graphical screen with the Puppy desktop wallpaper will make a fleeting appearance and immediately disappear dumping me back to the command line.

take a look on page 2 of the post from where you can download equinox.1.0.4.pup. All dependencies are included in this package. Also read the instructions.

Downloaded the file from MU and it installed without a hitch on Puppy 1.0.6.

Seems about as fast as the other window managers for Puppy, and is very comfortable for someone comming over from Windows. Seems very stable so far, I have not encountered any problems with it yet.

But I'll keep looking.

equinox is still under development and not stable. I remember that the special effects in equinox do not work and it crashes, esp the menu effects.

Hmm,

Are these effects enabled by default? I have not seen anything I would consider an effect, just a clean, quick menu. No stability issues either.

These effects have been disabled in the dotpup so that it dose not crash. However if you do activate them be aware.

Ah, Good idea.

Thanks for the warning.

Got it from MU's post. Worked fine on a clean pup001. (deleted the earlier one)
I have to say it is fast but visually not appealing. XFCE still gets the top billing Smile
