This is a menue on top of your screen.
If you move the mouse over the icons, the highlighted icon is displayed in larger size. Nice effect!

The icon-bar disappears automatically.
Simply move the mouse to the top of the screen, to show it again.

If you click on the last icon, rox will open, showing all available icons.
And leafpad opens displaying the menue-configuration.
It is very simple, example of the "help"-entry:
Code:
"Puppy Help" "man" khelpcenter.png


The Dotpup is 630 kB, as I included many Icons from KDE.
The program itself is just 27 kb.
Download:
http://noforum.de/dotpups/tablaunch0.6.pup

Imlib2 (700 kb):
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Libraries/imlib2.pup

You must istall imlib2, too.
tablaunch shall work without it, but on my system all icons were black then.

Graphite-icons

Iconset based on MacOSX using the KDE-naming-convention.
Install this dotpup and relaunch tablaunch (it will be relaunched if you edit and close the menue with the last icon).

This dotpup overwrites the existing icons, so if you want to keep them, rename
/usr/local/tablaunch0.6/icons/64x64/
first.

Download(Size: 1 MB):
http://noforum.de/dotpups/graphite-icons-64x64.pup

This includes 168 icons.
If you want to use them for your Rox-Desktop, convert them to the size you need (48x48):

I want this to load at startup.

I tried adding this to the icewm startup script, but then the windowmanager doesn't load. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

What's the proper way to load this at startup in icewm?

and can the positioning be changed?

At school on the macs we have this on the bottom instead of the top, so I'm used to it being on the bottom.

And then how do I change the position of the taskbar that's currently loaded? I know I can download the Icewm configuration utilities and change it, but that thing likes to mess up my menus from what I noticed.

In
/root/.xinitrc
you have the line

Code:
exec $CURRENTWM


replace it with

Code:
/usr/local/tablaunch0.6/run-tablaunch&
exec $CURRENTWM


To change the position, edit
/usr/local/tablaunch0.6/run-tablaunch

Add the option
--dock bottom

So the line should look like:
Code:
/usr/local/tablaunch0.6/tablaunch --dock bottom --height 48 -x 250 -y 0 -bg "#000000" -sfg "#FFFFBB" --iconhome /usr/local/tablaunch0.6/icons



To edit the position of the icewm-taskbar, add:

Code:
#  Task bar at top of the screen
TaskBarAtTop=1 # 0/1


to "/root/.icewm/preferences" or to where your "preferences"-file is.

Very Happy

Nice!
I wonder if we can have this in 1.0.7?
- the problem may be the icons - but we have some of them . . .

I placed it at the base
changed to the second set of icons and added a few items to the edit file

also changed to JWM and because the bar appears on the base I turned off the menu bar as a default with the JWM configurator

Nice, thanks for your config, Lobster Smile

I had to change -x 250 to -x 100 in run-tablaunch, or they won't fit on my screen.

I would not add it to Puppy by default, because imlib2 is 2 MB or so extracted.
Maybe someone has success compiling it without it, imlib1 is part of Puppy I think.

Like it!

You can even change the config file while running and it updates and carries on. Cool

Only (small) gripe the text isn't the nicest font/colour/background ever.

but for 27kb! wow!

It is also possible to drag the bar to the left/right.
Move the mouse to the screenborder, then drag the bar.

You can change the textfont in /usr/local/tablaunch0.6/run-tablaunch

Example:

/usr/local/tablaunch0.6/tablaunch --dock bottom --height 48 --ignoreXRM -x 250 -fn "*-helvetica-medium-r-normal--12-*" -sfn "*-helvetica-bold-r-normal--14-*" -bg "#DD00DD" --iconhome /usr/local/tablaunch0.6/icons

The Colors are hex-values, see a list here:
http://dantrimont.de/colors/

Here is the readme for tablaunch describing all options:

If you all keep posting this great stuff to make it Mac-like, you're going to be making a Macpup.

PostPosted: Tue 22 Nov 2005, 02:55    Post subject: MacPup  

I would love a mac pup combined with grafpup, of course being able to only use one button still floors me. When I worked for a School district I was forced into learning to support MacOS X. I was very happy with the job Apple did. They even left the very old BSD commands like sudo -t totally not documented. I seemed like a fast learner, alpha geek Razz
