It would be nice to have the regular puppy menu appear on screen with a right click of the mouse.


There is a script, flwm-menu that will build the menu like that. But it depended on jwm and I haven't updated it for icewm. The ultimate problem with having multiple window managers is the time it takes to generate all the menus.

The icewm menu is not bad because it's only one file. But if you're generating a new file for each menu entry for Rox-Menu, Flwm-menu, and also creating a RoxApp for all the menu entries - well this requires some thought. The snap-merge script that saves your stuff in Pupmode 13 is really slow, and that becomes very obvious when you're trying to copy down all those files generated by the menu scripts.

I'll think about it some more.


Would aragon's spm (simple puppy menu), based on ae menu, be suitable? Maybe simpler to implement? I mention it because it's independent of any wm existing in the Puppy: this menu is created based on the listing in /usr/share/applications.

In any case, the role of the programmer is not to cater to every user's whim of fancy, ( Specially mine! Laughing I'm already too much of an individualist ! Laughing )
Maybe just give pointers as to how this ot that can be done in the environment you chose to provide initially.

BFN.

Like in the panel that appears with FLWM? That's an idea, although I try not to have the ROX-panel "slide", 'cause it can get confusing, or you may forget what's in the off-screen section.



If you have that problem, just decrease the percentage the taskbar takes.

Yes, it can be done, but there are 2-3 limitations:
1) the smallest width of the ROX panel is 16 pixels.
2) if you have rox applets displayed in the panel, the panel will only shrink to the smallest width allowed by the applet. This supercedes #1 above.
3) Finally, readability by the human operator... If it's too small, it's of no use. (Well, the identification bubbles still pop up, but still, it's awfully small for human eyes.)

Your modified change-wm script with wmx integrated works nicely.
Many thanks!

Hello again. jemimah.

When I launch the panel under wmx (it doesn't have one by default), thus:
Code:
rox -b=/root/Choices/ROX-Filer/OpenboxPanel

I get:
Code:
/usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/ROX-Filer: /usr/lib/libxml2.so.2: no version information available (required by /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/ROX-Filer)


Is this error of any consequence?
Thanks in advance.

BFN.

About half the times I boot Fluppy I get an X in the tray and a little

The only way to close it is by restarting X.
What is that thing?


This happens when the tray apps start before the icewm tray has completely loaded. I thought the delay was long enough, but I guess not.


I used to see the same thing with earlier4.xx Puppies. (freememaplet)

May be the reason for no freememaplet showing on my Fluppy full
installs.

Does anyone know if SMP duo-core is enabled when running from
usb flash?

Fluppy 003 with Acer 3613WLMi. It just works.

Pgprs connection with globetrotter HSDPA modem connects fine. I can get to net during my holiday with my mother´s laptop. I have downloaded and installed needed apps. I like icewm as wm and I uploaded pa penguins themes also. Intel graphics driver works fine. With other newer kernels puppies dont.

The apps selection is fine. For movies I needed player which handles subtitles easily, so I installed mplayer and gnome-mplayer. VLC 0.86 should work also, so I have read.

I also tested Quirky 1.2 > acpi problem, with only boot parameter acpi=off, I was able to shutdown without hanging and then the modem was not detected. Also CPU temperature steadily rise up to seventy. I didnt bother use fixes, I stopped to use it. Same acpi ( so I think ) problem with lucid puppy luci 207. And intel driver problem also. Vesa was needed.

I have been most happy with Fluppy003. Keep up good work.

Does Fluppy currently work with the Intel Atom N450 chipset? Does it also fully work with the Wireless card in the Samsung N220?

As for the wireless card - I'm not sure what wireless card that is.

There's a driver for it but I hear it's unstable. I will grab the latest version and add it to the next Fluppy.
