78% of the people who voted bling vs no bling poll (kill pwidgets) wanted pwidgets gone, it was around 100 votes. So I do have a nice size following that will enjoy a Zigbert free puppy Smile well you can tell with the number of users replying. Anyways he has the power to stop this, But really it makes a better puppy to not have so much gtkdialog appications, really its not his coding which is faulty, its the library he uses, I wouldn't mind his apps if they were C or fox toolkit, never really seen any eye apealing tcl/tk programs, well wishburner is well equiped but I like the look of xfburn, k3b, (ashampoo burning suite <-- windows, nero windows version) etc, But Pburn with some of themes looked nice, wouldn't mind seeing a erase-cdrw/dvdrw button on the main screen with the broom on the cd icon like on xfburn. Hate opening menus to do basic stuff like erasing a cd/dvd and quick erase should be default when opening Pburn. Most would want quick format.

Bling vs no bling has nothing to do with a Zigbert free Puppy.
I see no point in pwidgets, but I would be extremely disappointed if we lost Zigbert's other programs which have nothing to do with bling.
I haven't yet seen a lightweight substitute for pburn or pfind.
Xfburn looks like it might get there one day... I presume it doesn't require xfce?
Searchmonkey is useful, but it needs quite a lot of hacking before I'd want to get rid of Pfind.

FWIW you seem to be much more into bling than Zigbert - posting huge theme packages and saying things like

In answer to this question that everyone is ignoring, and it really bugs me that no body is answering you, YES, they do still make second hand cars! I am making one myself right new. Very Happy Very Happy

"Pre-loved" is PC.

It's even PC for second hand PCs. If the police have one, then it's a PC PC PC.

It's PC gone mad.

Honestly, I don't think making a shutdown script after you had just done one was the brightest idea zigbert has ever had.

However, I'd "appreciate it" if you stopped harassing him and hijacking his thread. This has gone on long enough.

Hey, can anybody tell me if by any chance 4.2 includes a suspend script?
What does everybody think about adding a suspend script to puppy, and a suspend option to the shutdown dialogues? It would have to first check whether you have apm or acpi or neither (maybe just by seeing if the module is loaded?) and if suspend is possible.

Maybe take that idea and posted it on the only "Official Shutdown" script site and we'll work on it? http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=959958706&t=40923
I figure its better to leave zigbert alone and maybe he might respect his fellow developers applications Wink

JERK for continuing this crap, why don't you and ecomoney join forces and really screw over as many people as you can, why not have a competition and the winner could get the biggest jerk of puppy linux award? !!!!


Well...now you mention it, I did write a shutdown script too. It seems a very "Jerkish" thing to write Cool

This ones got a "backup and shutdown" feature, so people dont have to waste time waiting to do a backup before going to bed (Really useful).

Its in the latest ecopup, feel free to plagiarize it.

Bet you didint think of THAT ONE did you Ttuxxx?

Unfortunately in this case simplicity can be quite hazardous

There is a thread somewhere where we discussed how dangerous the usual JWM shutdown menu is - people sometimes shutdown accidentally, especially if they use a laptop touchpad that decides you have clicked when you didn't mean to.
