I believe Puppy uses compression so using UPX does not offer much improvement. By linking to/using the icons in Puppy 4.2, you will save a lot more space

Incredibly rude of me not to have followed this thread from the start...and just pitch in with a comment Embarassed

BUT

If the puppy control panel was implemented as some kind of file browser...with its various functions as links to its composite elements then this would have two advantages

1. It would be implemented with a similar look and feel to what our many windows refugees would feel most comfortable with.

2. Packages with "control panel" ish extra configuration programs (i.e. wine/gcompris administration) could be added by additional packages to the control panel (which is how I believe it is done by windows if my long-term memory serves me correctly).

?

Sorry for "but"ting in

@ecomoney

My PCP is just a simple gtkdialog3 script... that's why its < 1kb vs >1mb... to add a program to the panel you just have to cut & paste...

It could just as easily be built using a script similar to fixmenus via the .desktop files in /usr/share/applications (the menu and template info is in /etc/xdg/... and the fixmenu script is in /usr/sbin I think) the only difference is that you would need to make it executable after its created

PostPosted: Fri 10 Apr 2009, 00:55    Post subject: Re ecomoney suggestion  

I think ecomoney is onto something here....i'm going to leave the interface alone for the moment and concentrate on new backend that does the following:

1) On boot the filesystem and the menu system will be interrogated for configuration, setup and system utilities to include in Puppy Control Panel.

2) Add them to list view (like rox) -- allowing for icon or list view.

3) And work out a way of linking any new installs .. though that shouldn't be hard..so they are dynamically added to control panel.

A Control Panel of this sort will not rely on static data from known releases, but will adapt to new releases dynamically...sounds good .. just got to do it now... Smile

Thanks...it does make things a lot easier for people to switch if the terminology and operation are similar. Smile

Bonjour,
Continuing on PCP by technosaurus, what about this one (monPCP) to be improved?
It is based on the work of richard.a, see here.
It is 1287 bytes compressed.
There should be a title, tabs and more space between icons. Unfortunately I can't do that.
If anyone can help?

Richard.A has some excellent skills in user interface design, I have seen some of his work before. Glad to hear he is still contributing.

@gposil
Looks good, Puppy needs something like this, have you gotten any further with that new backend?

I`ve heard complaints about Barry`s GUI`s being too big for lower screen resolutions.
I tend to agree it shouldn`t be a problem... Solution is tab panels (notebook control).
Unfortunatly it doesn`t like useing the " double quotes, so it limits the code.
