Hmmm .....

I was looking for gtkdialog3 <tree> sort-by-column attribute (on how to make it work) and found it while testing. It got left behind, that's it ... as I mentioned above, it has been fixed for next update. It is now a setup option (enabled by default) ...

Interesting ..... I'll try to duplicate issue and see what happens. Could you tell me the samba version you're using? Thanks ...

works well for me
minor bug
if I mount //Kangaroo/Pictures then the icon for //Cassowary/Pictures is changed to mnted as well.
I like the vertical layout. I presume it is not possible to change the resizing action so that the list that needs it gets more space rather than them both resizing the same amount.
Most of the time when I double click on a share I would just like it to mount (if needed) and then open in rox. I wonder if this action plus an extra button on the main gui to open the mount/unmount dialog (to specify options) would be more usable.
Do you intend to put all the cifs options in the mount dialog at some stage?
I second Disciple's request for seeing the actual commands executed.
Code:
smbclient -R "bcast wins" -g -W "$domcred" -U "$cred" -N -L "$SvrNBN"
doesn't this mean that
1. the -W switch has no argument if no domain credentials are given
2. you are always specifying -N even if supplying a password

i) Fixed for next update. Thanks.
ii) Unfortunately, gtkdialog3 does not offer this functionality.
iii) I'll have to think a bit more about it ...
iv) If there's a real need, yes ... I'd like to keep it simple for now until it's reasonably stable ...
v) Ok, I'll add where appropriate ...

1. Yes, the domain name is normally retrieved from smb.conf (default preset as MYGROUP in puppy) ... The domain name is most important during mounting, not when querying for shares, so it seems ... I've tested all combinations (default/none/specified) and found it to make no difference when making a query ...
2. Yes, the -N parameter should negate any password supplied but it does not seems to be in my tests ... As a precaution, I took a quick peek at the samba sources and now moved -N before -U (so -U will override -N) just in case .....

Hmmm .....

I liked the idea of double-clicking-to-rox ... I've given it a bit of thought and will implement an experimental right-doubleclicks to open-with-rox method ... This should work fine for non password secured shares, password secured shares will have to be mounted thru the normal mount dialog before right-doubleclicks will work ...

There's only one more issue to fix before I release an update (previously reported by disciple). I have identified the issue, now making the appropriate adjustments and run some tests first ...

PostPosted: Sun 24 Jan 2010, 21:46    Post subject: released: lameSMBxplorer v0.1.6 beta  

Hmmm .....

lameSMBxplorer v0.1.6 beta is a bugfix release with two usability additions:

1. First-time run setup is now implemented. This allows entering the global
options dialog to change required parameters first. It prompts only once, the
first time. To have it come up again (for whatever reason), remove lameSMB.cfg
from lameSMBxplorer directory.

2. Right mouse button double-click on shares to auto-mount-n-explore-with-rox.
This is to be considered experimental as the right double-click routine
is a coded condition event, not a gtkdialog3 standard feature. This option
must be enabled in global options to take effect.

Changelog for v0.1.6 beta:
- added: First-time-run setup.
- bugfix: LameMounts fuser checkbox status.
- bugfix: sort-by-column attribute. (eden6000)
- bugfix: LookUpShares mount status check on //ip/sharename. (Will)
- bugfix: reset gencache only if no nmbd. (disciple)
- added: Right double-click to mount-n-rox (experimental).

Please note that right double-click will work fine on non-password shares.
For shares requiring user/password, the normal mount dialog must first be
used.

I see a minor or major problem depending on how you look at it.
When I set the right doubleclick option it does indeed work to mount the share in rox.
But you still have to double left click on the share to make sure it is unmounted after closing the rox share window.
Otherwise, it stays mounted.
So maybe an additional disconnect button on the main window to unmount the doublerightclick mounted share?

Yes I like having the custom 14kb banner, I made it up out of my default background in 2.14x, then I reused it for Pburn, micko's PupRadio, and now lameSMBxplorer, its cool because one banner can dresses up so many dialog programs and gives them a unified look and feel Smile Would be nice if one day we give the main puppy release a default banner for the dialog programs Smile

i think lameSMB.cfg in lameSMBxplorer directory is better to hold default values without change, and personal settings are placed at $HOME, for example $HOME/.config/lameSMBxplorer/lameSMB.cfg

Great!

There are still a few limitations, although I imagine you know about some already:
- the option to save user/password doesn't actually seem to work.
- the colour of the icons in the main window doesn't update when you mount/unmount a share, only when you restart lameSMBmount.
- after closing the main window (can only be done using the window manager's close button), you can still use the buttons to connect/disconnect/explore, but if you do then the gui doesn't update (to change which button is greyed out), and when you close the window it doesn't exit cleanly.
