Hello all.

I've encountered a freeze of Gparted under echinus, just as it's going to apply the changes to the partition. Both in Puppy 4.12 and in dpup482 beta5.

Can anybody confirm this, or is this just a case of the cobbler's son?

Same Gparted worked fine under jwm. Strange...

Sincerely,

Subject description: echinus v. 0.4.9
 

Updated Nov. 5, 2013, 1 p.m.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello, all you echinus fans out there!

I've made available a pet of the new version of echinus (v. 0.4.9) here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=731167#731167

It's intentionally that I've posted it in the LucidPuppy thread, since this
echinus does not work completely in wary-5.5 or wolx-5.5. In those
Puppies, the win keys are only activated if you have specified a 105-keys
keyboard, but the rest runs ok. Therefore "not completely".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Edit, Nov. 8, 2013 -- Member Médor reports that he had no problem using
echinus on wolx-5.5.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=735659&sort=lastpost#735659
I made another test on wary-5.5, which remained partially unsuccessful.
Even with a pure "pc105" keyboard-type setting, the Win keys in echinus
remained dead in PuppyWary-5.5.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But you can use the author polachok's default configuration or create
your own, substituting the Win keys for Alt+Shift, for example.

polachok's own description of the echinus configuration file can be found
at: https://github.com/polachok/echinus. Scroll down to the
"README" section. It contains some additional parameters not used here.

I'm also including here my echinuxrc file, with comments. This may help
to understand better how to use echinus with the most profit for the user,
because echinus is hard to find on the web, and echinus experiences
and/or echninus documentation files are even harder to find.

My echinusrc config call up various spm menus (aka aemenus), which are
not necessary for echinus to work properly. I'll provide these menus if
there is a request.


I also discovered one undocumented behavior, concerning bringing back
a maximized window to its previous size in floating mode.

The comments are in French and in English in the same file. Lazy me, I
didn't want to do the work twice! (Hopefully, it will also give echinus
more exposure.)

If you've also discovered some undocumented behaviors in echinus, or
generally want to share your experience of it, this is the place!

So there you go. Enjoy!

Hello, all.

I've edited my suggested echinusrc file today. Please see two posts up.
Thanks for your understanding and have a great day!

Subject description: Updated echinus (echinus-master from github)
 

Hello all.

Please find attached an updated echinus from its github echinus-master
zip file. I downloaded and compiled it on Dec. 10, 2015, hence the name.

I didn't publish it immediately because I wanted to test it beforehand.
I've been using it for six days now and it works great. I also tested the
echinus-"abs" fork, but it behaved weirdly when moving windows in
floating mode, so I decided against this "abs" fork.

If you type
Code:
echinus -v
in a terminal, you will see that the version number was left at "version
0.4.9, 2011". However the github page shows that developer Alexander
Polachok edited some of echinus' components closer to today's date.

The pet file of this echinus-master-2015-12-10 contains the companion
ourico taskbar and an ourico startup script. It also contains a ready-made
stalonetray configuration, specially designed to "clip" itself to the right
side of the ourico bar on top of the screen (please see capture). However
stalonetray itself is not included in this package. You may want to get it
from here.

When you do, please be careful not to squish the "specially designed"
config file.

Finally, I've included an echinusrc file that, on right click, calls a package
I authored recently, called CatApps. (See the echinus*command line in
the "specially designed" echinus config file.)

CatApps is a "menu and launch base" based on less; it offers
    1) a complete menu (similar in function to icewm or jwm menus),
    2) the default apps menu typical of Puppy',
    3) a list of +/- 40 directories to go to,
    4) a memo list of dirs and URLs, and
    5) a generic echinus config file to use as refence or "how-to".


The latter shows only when using CatApps with echinus. (Because you
can use CatApps as a companion utility with any window manager.)

The URL for the most recent CatApps script is here. Two more screenshots
of CatApps operating as a companion script to echinus can also be
viewed here.

If you don't like CatApps to show up on right-click, the original echinus
config file and the config from aragon's earlier compilation of echinus
are also included.

Any and all constructive questions and comments are welcome. Enjoy!

musher0

~~~~~~~~~
P.S. Anyone who'd know where the source code for ourico is now
deposited, please ring in? I looked all over the place (I think) and the
ourico source code seems to have gone to never-never land. (Luckily,
we had copies of the executable in *.pet packages on this forum.)
Thanks in advance.

Subject description: User's note
 

Hello, all.

I've discovered a bug related to echinus' configuration file echinusrc.

The "Echinus*normal.button" cannot be the same color as the
"Echinus*normal.bg", or echinus won't start.

They have to be of different colors. This is ok, echinus will boot:
Quote:
Echinus*normal.button: #000000
Echinus*normal.bg: #A5BAD3

But echinus won't boot with these config lines:
Quote:
Echinus*normal.button: #A5BAD3
Echinus*normal.bg: #A5BAD3
or these
Quote:
Echinus*normal.button: #000000
Echinus*normal.bg: #000000

I have not tested it, but I assume that the problem would be the same if
Echinus*selected.button and Echinus*selected.bg had the same color.

BFN.

Subject description: A full screen clock in PuppyLinux thanks to the echinus wm
 

Hello all.

Here's another thing that's possible with the echinus wm: maximize the
Xclock, "a la mandriva", i.e. like the now defunct Mandriva distro used to
have. (Focus the Xclock with your cursor, then hit Ctrl-Alt-m.) You can use
this as a quick screen lock -- or even as an actual room clock if you're not
working on your computer.

The script for the Xclock is attached. As to the actual full screen effect,
however, it can only be achieved through the echinus wm.

Got it? Smile Get it! Smile

BFN.

Hello again, people.

This is a compilation of the ourico-0.1.7 taskbar, whose source was so
kindly relayed by Keef. (Please see his post above.) This version includes
a digital clock at the right end of the bar.

The ourico version provided in my echinus package is version 0.1.6,
which does NOT have this digital clock. Both versions seem to honor the
same .ouricorc config file, so the choice is up to you. You can stay with
the ourico-0.1.6 included in the echinus package or use this one.

Please note, however, that AFAICT, the digital clock in attached version
0.1.7 (please see below) does NOT appear to be themable. It stays with
a greyish foreground on a darkish background. If you find a way to
theme that clock, it would be great, though.

Just to keep things clear, the digital clock on the ourico-0.1.7
taskbar has nothing to do with the XClock analog clock illustrated above.

BFN

PS. That means I'm still without the actual source code for ourico-0.1.6...
Thanks in advance for posting a copy here if you see it somewhere.

Hello again, people.

Here is ourico-0.1.6 with a twist: it has a nice little conky clock, which is
much more configurable than the digital clock provided by ourico-0.1.7.
(See attached.)

A different take, using the bmpanel2 taskbar and its "transpy" theme.

Here we have gotten rid of ourico, stalonetray and the little conky clock.
Those functions and infos are now all provided by the bmpanel2 bar.
