guys, afaik the shutdown problems are due to a code-change in wmpoweroff, wmreboot,...

not on puppy right now but will try to post a workaround later.

so here we are again. test this

1. open /usr/bin/wmpoweroff in a text editor.
2. edit line 30 ff
Code:
#w003
CURRENTWM="`cat /etc/windowmanager`"
kill -9 `pidof $CURRENTWM`

to this
Code:
#w003
#CURRENTWM="`cat /etc/windowmanager`"
#kill -9 `pidof $CURRENTWM`
killall X
sleep 1
exec killall -9 X

3. Save the file
4. Test poweroff

If this works, apply the patch also to wmreboot and wmexit.

Subject description: Steve Miller's a Tejas boy, too
 

mmhm..

As a wm dilettante, I'd find that I needed to ungracefully 'kick' my mod of plogout with ctrl+alt+bs (and then I rediscovered the 'endlines' thing for wmpoweroff, wmreboot and startwm with recent pups) - it's even nicer if there is a wmexit file as well ..

.. keep on a-rockin' me, baby …

Those 5 lines were already present, though the first two
were not commented out. So I commented them out,
but it made no difference. Still didn't poweroff.

I'm using dpup477 on a PIII

Thanks for trying. Wink

shep,

yes the lines are allready present, but it was lighter to display it in that way...

to be a little clearer on what issue 'could' be solved with my workaround:

a) could be solved
you use poweroff (reboot,...) from the menu and nothing happens, because X doesn't close. if you shutdown from cli, everything works as expected.

b) could NOT be solved
your pc shuts down except last step. often a problem with acpi...

Ah; yeah, when I try (without your changes) from cli it shuts down but doesn't turn off...so this wouldn't fix that, hmmm...I still need to test it though...

If anyone cares Very Happy I'm hacking on Lupu 5.1.1 and have fluxbox running on it. It will take a while if it is at all possible to strip and clean, etc., but just wanted to mention that I'm playing with it right now.

If I can pull it off I'll start another thread...

Oh, dejan you rock! Man that looks good!

Forgot how easy it is to add stuff to the menu...added Hide or Show desktop icons courtesy of forum member "seeker," from here.

Thanks to dejan's work it greatly expedites things. I'm going to play with the menu and strip out jwm and all I can and change a couple of things then I'll post an iso...hopefully in a week or sooner... Cool
