@micko:
No, it's ok. Clock won't appear just because of the sleep value, as usual, put bigger value like 5 or 6. The more important thing is the mouse click release. I used a simulated right click on something that won't open anything when clicked. Maybe zigbert can make a code to automatically calculate to move cursor on the xonclock center, as it won't open anything when right clicked. - I am not much of a coder...sorry to say

@trio and zigbert
What we need to do to speed up the slideshow loading is alter the script with this in mind;
we must find out what is in ~/.pwidgets/misc/scaledimages.
if /scaledimages contains the file 01.jpg then this part of the script can run
Code:
#The actual slideshow
            TMP=$[$OFFSET_Y+7]
            echo "xli -geometry +$X_POS2+$TMP -delay $DELAY -goto $SCALED_DIR/01.jpg $SCALED_DIR/*.jpg &" >> $HOME/.pwidgets/tmp/pwidgets-exec
            ;;
         *)

else run this
Code:
#build scaled images in a temporary storage
            echo "scale2pics \"$IMAGE_DIRECTORY\" $SCALED_DIR 126 95 85 jpg" >> $HOME/.pwidgets/tmp/pwidgets-exec
            #The actual slideshow
            TMP=$[$OFFSET_Y+7]
            echo "xli -geometry +$X_POS2+$TMP -delay $DELAY -goto $SCALED_DIR/01.jpg $SCALED_DIR/*.jpg &" >> $HOME/.pwidgets/tmp/pwidgets-exec
            ;;

fi

I think I'm on the right track there. We'll see...


So far I can print whether 01.jpg exists
Code:
[ -e ~/.pwidgets/misc/scaledimages/01.jpg ] && echo "TRUE" || echo "FALSE"
which prints 'TRUE' or 'FALSE'. How do I use that output? Here's what I have.
Code:
[ -e ~/.pwidgets/misc/scaledimages/01.jpg ] && echo "TRUE" || echo "FALSE"
    
 #"File exists" = "$TRUE"
 #"File does not exist" = "$FALSE"

if        [ ~/.pwidgets/misc/scaledimages/01.jpg = "FALSE" ] ; sleep 1
   then    touch ~/.pwidgets/misc/scaledimages/01.jpg
         sleep 1
         scale2pics ~/images ~/.pwidgets/misc/scaledimages 126 95 85 jpg &
         sleep 3   #time for Scale2pics to scale images
         xli -geometry +870+600 -delay 5 -goto   ~/.pwidgets/misc/scaledimages/01.jpg ~/.pwidgets/misc/scaledimages/*.jpg &
   else    [ ~/.pwidgets/misc/scaledimages/01.jpg = "TRUE" ] ; sleep 1 
             xli -geometry +870+600 -delay 5 -goto   ~/.pwidgets/misc/scaledimages/01.jpg ~/.pwidgets/misc/scaledimages/*.jpg &
   exit 0
fi

but it doesn't work. I know it has somethingto do with how I am trying to use the output of the test.

Back to the drawing board.... Confused

I just wanted thank everyone for all the hard work on this project! I use the digital clock, the weather, calendar, and CPU PWidgets. It took my a little time to figure out the F/C weather conversion.

I still need to figure out why the digital clock is in military/metric 24 hour times instead of the 12 hour system we use here in the US. I'll go to the .onclock file and see if I can figure it out. I'm sure something is in there.

Have you tried puppy wizard-wi zard and configure puppy for your country?

I must've forgot to reboot after installing Conky and PWidgets because it's working now. Also, I did have the setup correctly for my locale. Thanks for your response!

I need help getting my weather report to show up in pwidgets. Seems my Accuweather code is in a format I can't get to work. This is the code returned when I search for Hartford, CT:

http://www.accuweather.com/us/ct/hartford/06101/city-weather-forecast.asp?partner=msnad&traveler=0&u=1

On the other hand, my Firefox Forecast extension gives me USCT0094, which looks promising. But so far I haven't been able to come up with a workable LOCCOD.

By the way, I can easily get the weather for Madrid and Valmoen, Norway, using the codes supplied for demonstration.

Any assistance is appreciated

There's my problem in a nutshell. My zip code 06103, for anyone who might know how to use that for a solution.

Pistoi0, all you have to do is to put your zip code (for accuweather I think it is 06101) in the pwidgets weather config file:
Code:
${color0}${font weather:size=62}${execi 10 /root/.pwidgets/scripts/WeatherIcon "6101"}${font}  ${execi 10  /root/.pwidgets/scripts/Weather city}

Cheers

Thanks to sintot and trio, I am pleased to report that the weather in Hartford, CT USA, is Sunny and 37F. The zip code translates perfectly.

Anyone had trouble with the fonts ?

I followed the instructions to load and tested Abiword where they work OK.

However they will not work with digital clock. It's set for ionic but seems to display DejaVu.

Check '/usr/share/fonts/default/TTF' contains the Ionic font. If not try reinstalling Pwidgets. Or rename the pwidgets-0.4.pet to pwidgets-0.4.pet.tar.gz and extract, find the font in the resulting pwidgets-0.4 directory and copy it to /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF and restart Pwidgets. Hope that helps.

Hi Micko,

Yes it's there. It works in Abiword OK.

As a test I rechecked the minixcal clock in the tray and changed the font in .jwmrc for it to ionic but no joy, it just won't show up.

It's in /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF along with the others. I changed to other fonts and they show OK

Zigbert says they show up in Abiword when installed and that proves true.
