Ok HairyWill, I want you to test this.
It is basically the new clock fix by forum member 'trio', it is dependant upon 'xmovewindowbyclassname' written in C by MU. I tested in JWM and Icewm, hacked it a little and it seems to work fine.
The clock does appear in left of screen for a few seconds, but then finds it's correct position. So yes, a small bug. BUT, no 'xevent' clicking and bouncing and banging of the cursor!

To install,
Download the two files.
Extract and replace your 'usr/local/pwidgets/func' file
WARNING: Back up your original 'func' file.
Extract 'xmovewindowbyclassname' and run make, make install.
If you are running JWM put these lines in 'jwmrc-personal'
Code:
<Group>
<Class>xonclock</Class>
<Name>xonclock</Name>
<Option>noborder</Option>
<Option>notitle</Option>
<Option>layer:1</Option>
<Option>sticky</Option>
<Option>nolist</Option>
</Group>
just before </JWM>
If running Icewm put this at the end of 'winoptions'
Code:
#xonclock
xonclock.ignoreTaskBar: 1
xonclock.allWorkspaces: 1
xonclock.dTitleBar: 0
xonclock.dBorder: 0
xonclock.dSysMenu: 0
xonclock.dResize: 0
xonclock.dClose: 0
xonclock.dMinimize: 0
xonclock.dMaximize: 0
xonclock.ignoreNoFocusHint: 1
xonclock.layer: Normal


Backup '/usr/sbin/fixwidgets' then comment out or delete everything under line 9 so it looks something like this.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
for I in `ps -eo pid,command | grep -w --extended-regexp "conky|xonclock|xli|http://rss.accuweather.com" | awk '{print $1}'`; do kill -9 $I; done

TMP="`cat /root/.config/wallpaper/bg_img`"
cp "$TMP" /root/Choices/ROX-background.jpg
xli -fillscreen -onroot /root/Choices/ROX-background.jpg

#sleep 2
/root/.pwidgets/pwidgets-exec

Restart Pwidgets and choose clock and tell me if it works.

EDIT: For some strange reason permissions changed during some process of the func file. I suspect during zipping. I used 'gzip' in terminal. Ah well, you just have to type 'chmod 755 func' in a terminal. Rolling Eyes

NB: zigbert obviously in his absence has not approved this but he does know we were working on a better clock fix and I'm sure he wont mind too much, his last comment on Pwidgets thread was "Enjoy coding."

Would be good if the reason for a not working full-screen in youtube was found. Flash ten seems to actually open the first image of the video in full screen, but it crashes after that.


The New Seamonkey,Firefox,Icecat packages I compiled, all 3 of them Youtube fullscreen works with the older flash. I think the fullscreen issue had to do with how the browser was compiled.

I installed ttuuxxx's icewm .pet and not only can read the system tray clock but also have a nice sticky, my sfs file monitor is back, and other goodies. Thanks, ttuuxxx.

Hey WhoDo it sounds like my new icewm package is a hit Wink

Hey WhoDo will the next release be Seamonkey or FirePup? If its SeaMonkey, make sure its set as defaullt browser, I'll check after but I don't recall if I made it so in the package.

@Jeff - Alpha3 will be Seamonkey-1.1.14, complete with Mail/News (pretty please? Razz ), Seafox theme, monkeymenus and CuteMenus (pretty, pretty please? Razz Razz ), and the build script should ensure it appears in the defaultbrowser file. Alpha2 picked up netsurf because it didn't recognise Firepup/Firefox was even there for some reason.


Do we have an extra 2-2.5MB compressed to waste? If so I'll do it, it will take hoursssss.

@David - I appreciate that your time is just as valuable to you as mine is to me, but please remember that I also have a life outside of Puppy and it happened to explode on me just around the time of Alpha2's release! My daughter-in-law has presented us with our first grandchild - a healthy girl of 4.3kg (? 9lb13oz) and 53cm (22in?) - so other things have been seriously distracting me from the task. Marsae (pronounced Mar-say like the city) was also 13 days overdue - a fashionably late young lady - so there were some concerns.


Best wishes to baby, mom (oops, that should be "mum," right?), dad, and grandparents! Take your time--if I recall correctly, Tcl and Tk 8.5 were years behind schedule, but they were worth waiting for. No doubt Puppy 4.2 will be too--worth waiting for, I mean, not years behind schedule!

If you believe that I wasted your time with the Alpha2 release I'm sorry, but please consider that I had more pressing issues to address and kindly cut me some slack. Rolling Eyes


Hey, you didn't see me complaining when Alpha2 didn't really appear on Australia Day, did you? Smile Actually, only a few minutes of my time were wasted on downloading, burning, and finding out it wouldn't boot. I've wasted a lot more time than that, even today alone, on things like figuring out ill-documented features of Gnocl geometry management (very different from Tk geometry management) by trial and error.

What I meant was I didn't have time to try to devise solutions to the no-boot problem. I hope you will, sooner or not quite so soon. I really would like to be able to boot an Alpha 2 CD, and I'm sure a lot of other people would too.

Hi WhoDo my first compiling of seamonkey + mail+composer was a 11MB pet or 33MB extracted, the Chrome folder worked this time, but when I opened the email, it opened up fine, but when I clicked create an account, the button would press down, but nothing happened, I'll try again.
ttuuxxx
keep in mind this about the size
seamonkey + mail+composer 11MB pet <--- no addons
seamonkey + mail+sylpheed 8.6MB pet <--- with addons, new look + theme

Yeah. Sorry for the extra "ask", but I think it's important. Sylpheed isn't acceptable for general use as it has no working html display support. From a functionality viewpoint for refugees, that's a showstopper. We'd have to include Thunderbird instead and that really would put us over the limit on size. Rolling Eyes

As much as I enjoyed my time with Firepup, now that Seamonkey is back in a whole bunch of stuff works again (bareview, etc) and the iso size is back down to 96Mb. I think we can deliver at 98.5Mb and still keep the faith! The add-ons are a must-have too! Razz

Point taken. I plead a complete lack of sleep - even though she was born at 9:12pm, by the time we got home it was close to 1:00am. Then last night the immediate family were up until 1:00am this morning "wetting the baby's head", so I still haven't had any serious sleep. I have had a few Wild Turkey Rare Breeds though ... oh and a lovely long nurse of my brand new grandaughter this morning! Razz

I'm gonna keep the faith with the faithful and answer some posts before I take a poppa-nap to catch up.

Cheers

Hey WhoDO I've been working on this email thing and this is a backup option Smile Boy do you ever get great support from me,LOL ok enough with the patting me on the back, what I did was download the latest Claws mail, Claws html plugin sources and compiled and stripped them to a 1.5MB pet, its located on page one. Could you try that out while I start on the long Seamonkey journey.
They also have a vCalendar plugin I just compiled, this is what it says about that plugin This plugin enables vCalendar message handling like that produced by Evolution or Outlook, and handles webCal subscriptions. It provides a personal calendar and public calendar import and export.

now doesn't that sound nice:)
here's the link to the rest of the plugins
http://www.claws-mail.org/plugins.php?section=downloads

Claws mail by far is much more pleasing to eye the then Seamonkey mail and it has far better plugins and support.
ttuuxxx

Option 1 Claws mail + Html = 1.5MB
claws-mail-3.7.0-html.pet

Option 2 Claws mail + Html + Calendar plugin 1.7MB
claws-mail-3.7.0-html-Cal.pet

@@@@ update about Claws Mail @@@@
you have to load the plugins up,
top menu select /configuration/plugins

If we do go with claws, I could probably reconfigure the plugins to load automatically, so it would be easier on new users.

I prefer the claws-mail to SeaMonkey.

BTW Glad to hear that the issue with 4.2 alpha2 was solved. Very Happy

What tha' heck! Let's go the whole hog and install the full 1.7Mb! If that works ok, then we'll have plenty of room for Seamonkey-1.1.14 with the full set of add-ons, too! Razz Downloaded for testing.

ya the last release of claws mail in the forum was almost 6MB pet package without any plugins, with the same options, they didn't strip or remove anything, I could add a locales package if you wanted Claws as default mail client, also I could compile the rest of the plugins and have them on the repo I guess.
***Note i didn't make it default mail client but that would only take a minute to change.
