I initially wanted to put the help as a mouse-over, but couldn't find anything in puppy that could do it... thus the "?" help... if someone knows how to get mouse-over to work I would do it that way... anyone???

David McClamrock (pa_mcclamrock) has almost finished Remaster Express (RemaX) and I've suggested to him that you might appreciate some assistance with this part of your project.

I also have some suggestions about content, if you have no objections. My suggestions are:
  • Add Firewall Configuration
  • Drop the Browser about:plugins page
  • Add Chooselocale
  • Add Set Timezone
  • Add set clock
  • Remove Gwhere (too obscure for newbies)
  • Remove Gparted (not a newbie option)
  • Change SAMBA to Windows LAN or similar
  • Change Netsetup to NetConnect
  • Plugging seems "obscure"
These are just suggestions, not requests, so please feel free to ignore them if they don't suit what you're trying to achieve.

Cheers

  • Add Chooselocale - part of Country
  • Add Set Timezone - part of Country
  • Add set clock - part of Country
  • Remove Gwhere (too obscure for newbies) - planned to already
  • Remove Gparted (not a newbie option) - still think it should be there
  • Change SAMBA to Windows LAN or similar - changing to WinLAN
  • Change Netsetup to NetConnect - Changing to Net (has more than just connection or setup options)
  • Plugging seems "obscure" - thought it was more intuitive than eventmanager - other suggestions???


I'll take a look at David's code to see what I can see for mouse over

How about "Hotplug"? I dunno, even that seems pretty obscure to me, but it seems a tad less so than "plugging". Rolling Eyes

Whether or not you guys manage to resolve the mouseover help, I'd like to see the main screen simplified somewhat. Perhaps a single help page behind its own icon with descriptions of each PCP icon or something? IMHO something like this should be more welcoming to those who need it.

Keep up the good work, technosaurus! I know you'll worry it until it's done, just like a dog with a bone! Razz

My support for keeping Gparted

WhoDo you'd be amazed at how many noob posts are about partition problems!
In general, sterling effort, techno - 5*

Time to accelerate the Noob development program. Give them the power.

without the help it is <1kb compressed, looks a lot better and most programs that need help already have it... here it is with a couple of substitutions (ptray and pwidgets are better set from the tray - otherwise multiple processes start and don't quit on exit... bad)

Is this type of Control Panel worth pursuing...it was just a quick fiddle in Lazarus

@gposil - looks great, can you upload it?... looks like a lot of non-stock icons, which is fine they pretty good, I only tried to use stock puppy icons to keep the size smaller which made it kind of difficult to get a uniform appearance

gposil

Hope we find this in 4.2.1
and . . .
for 4.3 we will be instigating a massive drive to use GIT
Please start reading up on Git Smile
