try running the configuration utility there you would see an option 'print to local file' see if something can be done over there.
if xfprint4 dosent work i wouldnt want to include it. however you are the better judge.

YES YES the menu convertor is working fine with awk Very Happy .

it comes with a lot of beautiful themes but how to use the old Puppy themes and Barry's GTK theme script ?

I have an idea: to create in /usr/share/themes a new Puppy folder similar to the others but in place of gtkrc put a symlink to /etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

it works, we can now choose a theme with GTK theme script and then choose "Puppy" on xfce configuration panel


he created a folder /usr/share/themes/Puppy/gtk-2.0 and in that he placed a simlink to /etc/gtk02.0/gtkrc. this shows up as Puppy in the XFCE user interface setup. barrys themes can now be used with xfce.

however i have used the gtk engine for xfce 3.8 for the gtk1 apps. gtkrc file for this is stored in /root/.gtkrc . so any changes we make do not apply to the gtk1 apps.

to get a uniform look for all my apps i reverted back to the orignal gtkrc in /etc/gtk/gtkrc but then i lose the xfce look for the gtk1 apps. to overcome this i tried passing the 'engine "xfce" {}' paramater in my /etc/gtk/gtkrc but i does'nt seem to work. can you figure this out.

Smile I forgot to mention that I had also tried that. It complained about not being able to create the file. It only writes an empty file.

To avoid cluttering this thread and because the effort will be larger than just xfce, I'm continuing the menu project in another thread

http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?p=18317#18317

Having access to XFCE from within puppy is great as it has successfully implemented the freedesktop.org XFCE menu standard.

FEEDBACK REQUIRED -> users who are using the session manager please provide your feedback.

QUESTION -> how can the session manager rc file be edited to start rox as the desktop with session manager ?

Embarassed Hey Bombay - did I miss something or have you got the konqueror browser working in Puppy?

Maybe it is time for the much fabled KDE Krazy Puppy pupget by Barry to be released . . . Cool

PostPosted: Mon 17 Oct 2005, 01:38    Post subject: kde in puppy  

I just wanted to try kde in puppy. Apart from the eye candy it comes with a few good apps. So I made a kde 3.4.3 installation in puppy using kdebase, kdelibs and aRTS and a few other libs. i have used slackware 10.1 packages. Seems to be working fine. I have been studying the background messages there are no critical errors just Badwindow requests. All base apps are working fine though per se kde is slow on my box (pIII , 128 Mb, 200 Mb linux swap) . however using xfce session manager to start kde services, kde apps can be started from xfce without much loading time.

Following should have been posted elsewhere

This is a theory i have. Rather than releasing Krazy puppy as a whole, it should be broken down into packages similar to kubuntu kde packages.
if you have not seen kubuntu packages here is an review. Official kdebase package is 25 mb tar.gz. what kubuntu people have done is broken down this into individual packages. say kdebase-binaries, kdebase-documents, kdebase-data...

so if krazy puppy is packaged in such a manner that the required base libs are in one package. (apps + their libs) in individual packages. This i suggest because it will give access to the better apps in kde an still not bloat puppy.

Bombayrockers:

I've completed the third stage towards having dynamic menu generation in Puppy.

The good news is that the work for the Xfce is almost completed.

Please check my post and test it under Xfce.

http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?p=18767#18767

My next stage is to try to convince people to start creating the <application>.desktop files at installation so they appear automatically under the Xfce menu.

Actually, If MU can add that to his DotPup wizard, it would be awesome.

Enjoy,

I like Xfce !

Thanks Bombayrockers!

I'm having a little issue with it though - Changes don't seem to be saved after a reboot. Sad

e.g changing the icons on the panel or changing setting to take off the annoying startup notificaion. on a reboot it's back to what it was. Confused

Is there something I need to do to save these changes? There is no obvious save changes button...

this happens because current changes to the panel are stored in
/root/.config/xfce4/panel/contents.xml.active

so to save your changes do this.
in the above folder copy contents.xml over contents.xml.bak and copy contents.xml.active over contents.xml before you reboot.
