Hi jim1911,

The numlockx I posted in
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=54774&start=30

was "borrowed" from ubunto64 this might be different.

I've just tried the numlockx from the pet you posted above.
In fatdog64 b3 and it works from the command line ok.

I do have the source for version 1.2 if you want to try compling your own.

Hi guys
I'll make an attempt to include numlockx for DuDE 0.3. Hopefully, I get some feedback if it works.

Thank you both
Sigmund

I guess your fixed esword .desktop file works just great, but my intention is that any .desktop file should work with DuDE. But, it is maybe only in the Puppy-world that Exec value of .desktop files is straightforward?????????

The only workaround that I can foresee is for DuDE to check the application desktop files for
Code:
Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/root/.wine" wine "C:\\Program Files\\xxxxx\\xxxxx.exe"
(possibly just search for *.exe) and if found to create an excutable xxxxx.sh file containing the complete Exec code line, copy it to /usr/bin, and modify the xxxxx.desktop file Exec line to read
Code:
Exec=xxxxx.sh
which is what I did manually. It should be possible, but it's a lot to ask. Maybe the solution is to include a wine readme that informs the user what needs to be done and let the user do a manual edit.

Hi zigbert,

Another problem to ponder. DuDE has a conflict with lupu Quickpet update.

I have noted this Quickpet update problem for the last few lupu releases and finally determined that DuDE is the conflicting program. It's reported here. Any assistance will be welcomed.

Thanks,
Jim

PostPosted: Fri 14 May 2010, 13:04    Post subject: Interesting little bug  

OK, so here is an interesting little bug. If i click on /usr/share/applications/seamonkey-web-browser and select 'add to favourites', I get a link inserted that says Seamonkey-Addressbook! , but the link loads Seamonkey Browser Smile
If I go into usr/share/applications/seamonkey-addressbook.desktop and edit the description to just Seamonkey, then the link text in 'favorites' shows as just 'Seamonkey'.
My guess is, the link loads into 'favorites' correctly, but the database, when looking for text for the link picks up the first 'seamonkey' entry it finds, which is 'seamonkey-addressbook' and lifts the text from that.

Hi zigbert,

Great, looking forward to next release. However, it's already a great addition to a jwm desktop.

Thanks,
Jim Very Happy

I think that DaveS has pinpointed what happens with the name when sol is selected as a favorite that I posted earlier. That's the reason, it winds up with wrong names although the desired program does execute and the icon shows up correctly. It shows up this time as "Xsoldier - space arcade" instead of Aisleriot solitaire.

Jim, I may revert to just opening a web browser and that's all for the update. That will fix your issue and the DuDE is too important (for me anyways Wink ) to drop. I can't quite get a handle on why it isn't working, But we can leave that for the future as stability is paramount at the moment.
Mick, if you find Quickpet to not be the problem, please tell me.....

It's a Quickpet problem ziggy, so don't you waste your time Smile

I have a work around in place for Jim (and DuDE) and he did let me know that it's ok.

Cheers

Your problems with getting wrong description in Favorites menu is not possible for me to reproduce. Neither in my Stardust 013 system nor on a fresh lupu. I know this problem happened earlier, but now seems to work ok. BUT, to get fresh descriptions, you need a fresh install. If you uninstall, please also remove whatever is left in /root/.stardust.

This is outstanding! And just when Lupu hits the shelves.

Great that Barry has reverted to JWM in Quirky too.

Ha! An app named after me! Laughing Works well too.

Did you read my rant in the Lupu thread? Mandriva refugees will love this.. for certain.

I'm just wondering.. did you already know about that yaf-splash font trick? You can use any installed font but some are certainly tricky to get going and some don't do the big size..

One suggestion for the next version and I should have mentioned it earlier. Can you integrate a button in the "Install" tab for Quickpet in PCC? It showed up in Favourites in the last version and I gather will do so again.

Oh, and one more thing. If you did read my rant you may know I now have a new fast box with AMD X2 processor that has 2 cores. We need to update the cpu_bar widget with Caneri's hack. I'm on to it Wink .

This is fantastic. All the great features of 421, 431 and the added features of 500 all rolled together with the great new features you (and the other guys) have come up with.

Cheers

Mick Very Happy
