oh ok. Thanks Zigbert. I just noticed now that it says 2.1.1 for the extras package. The whole time i was reading it as 2.2.1, duh. Thanks again. Idea

BTW is there an extras package in the works. I like the extra widgets like tv, etc.

Subject description: 2.2.1 in Dpup beta 5
 

I am having problems with Pwigets 2.2.1 in Dpup beta 5.
First, when I make changes to calander and save the file, if I go to the Pwigets menu and select Apply, my changes are lost and the calander file reverts to it's original form.
Second, if I try to select a Pwigets sidebar background, It does not happen and I get an error of "Pwigets_background contains no data."
Also, I have to reset the wallpaper each time as it dissapears to a plain background.
I should mention my color depth is 24 and I have dri and the factory NVIDIA driver installed.

Hi 8bit

I was the one who hacked the wallpaper setter for suitability for Puppy43x with Pwidgets.

Because the wallpaper setter is included in Pwidgets, it simply overwrites files in 43x. In Dpup it is a different story. "Pwallset" seems to be firm. You can go to /usr/local/apps (in Dpup) and look inside Wallpaper and you will see that Apprun is there, that will run the hacked wallpaper setter for Pwidgets. (I haven't tried this, I just turned off the sidebar in my Dpup, but it might work). If it doesn't work you could disable Pwallset in case there is a conflict.

I don't think your hardware or associated drivers are any concern.

It wouldn't be hard to hack Pwallset to make it Pwidgets compliant... I have read some of your threads so I think you are up to it.. Wink .

If you do manage a hack let us know Smile ,... same if you don't.

I'll let zigbert answer your calendar query.

Cheers

Subject description: apprun fix for compatability with Pwigets
 

I investigated my sidebar background problems with Pwigets by opening /usr/local/apps/Wallpaper/AppRun.
I found that the test was looking in /root/.pwigets for files that just were not there.
So I did a modification to the AppRun script to point to /usr/local/pwigets/widgets/plugins/sidebar/sidebar.

And low and behold, after making the modification, my desktop background stayed intact and I was able to add any sidebar background I wanted.

The commented lines are original, and my added lines are after.

Code:

#add button for sidebar if installed
#if [ -f $HOME/.pwidgets/plugins/sidebar/sidebar ];then
if [ -f /usr/local/pwidgets/widgets/plugins/sidebar/sidebar ];then #added by 8-bit
# SIDEBAR='<button><label>Sidebar</label><input file icon="applications-graphics"></input><action>$HOME/.pwidgets/plugins/sidebar/sidebar &</action></button>'
 SIDEBAR='<button><label>Sidebar</label><input file icon="applications-graphics"></input><action>usr/local/pwidgets/plugins/sidebar/sidebar &</action></button>'


I hope that helps someone.

Um, I don't have those lines in wallpaper script in dpup, commented or uncommented. So, where do I exactly add those line, or do I install another wallpaper setter first?

EDIT: I know Mick said it's packaged with pwidgets but aparently not in this package I have (I believe pwidgets 2.5 dev.?)

On the Pwigets 2.2.1 fix, navigate to /usr/local/apps.
Right-click on Wallpaper and select Look Inside.
There you will find the script file "AppRun"
Open it as text, make the changes and save it.
After that, Click menu, Desktop, Pwigets tiny desktop apps.
Click on Plugins.
Click on Sidebar - Set wigets background.
Pick right or left and the sidebar background you want.
I had best luck with Golden to be able to see the calander.
Click Apply.

That was my short version of instructions for the modification.
Hope it helps.

Dejan

About 10(?) pages back (maybe less) i made a wallpaper package for 4.3.x and then zigbert included it in Pwidgets 2.1. I haven't time to find it now, off to work

Cheers

The pwidgets package doesn't include the wallpaper setter, - only the pached files. So if you are running a system without nathan wallpaper setter, or another setter that are supporting pwidgets sidebars, the sidebar function will not work correct.

Sorry, but I'm not into Dpup at the moment. Smile


We miss you too Trio. What are your real-life-issues?

trio,
I am glad to hear that you have employment!
A lot of people do not.
I was self employed, working indirectly for another company doing piece work.
Their sales fell and I was told that maybe things would improve in the fall. So I bit the bullet and payed company expenses with no income.
Fall came and I was then told maybe things would improve by spring.
I had not had any business or personal income since July, and decided enough was enough and closed the business, and applied for Social security.
So I am one of the unemployed waiting for my S.S to start.

Why might the temp widget not be working?

I attached a screenshot of my hardinfo displaying a temp of 56C, and the pwidgets temp is always stuck at fan off, temp 45C?

Subject description: Adding new Widgets
 

Sorry to be dim but how do new widgets get to be available to be selected?

I've downloaded and installed a couple of .pet packages with widgets that interest me and I was expecting them to then appear in the list of widgets I could choose. But they don't.

What step(s) have I omitted?

I tried the Help but it sent me to a dead place on the old site which isn't much help.

I expect the answer is somewhere in thread, but at 2653 entries I cannot face looking through it for the answer. Embarassed

Nick
