when i run wallpaper, i get this:

Code:
# wallpaper

** ERROR **: gtkdialog: Error in line 37, near token '<separator>': syntax error

aborting...
/usr/local/apps/Wallpaper/AppRun: line 321:  1182 Aborted                 gtkdialog3 --program BG_DLG
#


i think i might have broke something [full install], anyone know what?

funny bug....it means you have not gpicview OR fotox in your path. Remember that 4.12 has the newer fotox which is now called fotoxx.

Simple fix would be to make a symlink of fotoxx to fotox (or install gpicview )

no need to install fotoxx, if you don't want it. Either make a blank fotox file in /usr/bin/ or simply edit the wallpaper code

Pah! Wallpaper?
Your minimalist pretensions have been exposed
You are a materialist and bling advocate (I always knew it) Laughing

oh well - nobody is perfect Crying or Very sad

yeah, somebody gave me a gateway, 933 mhz, 768mb

so i'm designing a fancy interface using patriot's translucent jwm and b/w photos of japanese scenery and such from http://library.osu.edu/sites/rarebooks/japan/about.html

no icons on the desktop or root menu, either, except when i mount a drive a line appears over the 'd' [like a long vowel]

it's fancy minimalism, like that which a hollywood star might effect

[everybody is a star]

Or you could see if /initrd/pup_rw/usr/bin contains a hidden file called ".wh.fotoxx." If so, just delete this hidden "whiteout" file (and maybe reboot), and fotoxx should be back. (If so, then it was really there all the time, probably in /initrd/pup_ro2/usr/bin, but the whiteout file made it invisible.)
