Sub_title: icon settings
 

This is the How to for changing an apps icon on the ibar. Right click on an icon then select properties.



The desktop entry editor will open.Go to the icon tab and click on the icon.



The select an icon window is a file manage that will open where the current icons is . Us go up a directory to leave that folder and move to another.Double click a folder to open it.



Go to the new icon, select it and click ok.



That will send you back to the desktop entry editor and there you click apply. Then close.



And done.

Thats Itaskng. First install the MP511-themes-6.pet How to make that shot. Menu-settings-shelves.Move the bottom shelf to the top left in the shelf settings window.Then make it transparent. Open the settings panel go over to extensions. Click on itaskng and add. Adjust settings from there Put it on the bottom, As noted by joel it looks like poop anywhere else.Get rid of the background box. It will load up with the default ibar icons you can change it to have it's own list.

@ puppyluvr

Of course Runtt21's answer is the definitive one, as this is his baby - but an alternative is just install wbar from the repos for the same effect. That's what I did.


@Runtt21
Congratulations, this really is another lovely piece of work.

Sub_title: black screen
 

Firstly, great job you guys (been hoping for a fast op system using Enlightenment ). Thing is, i have an odd problem with this one, whenever i click close or minimize, wether it be on a browser, a folder, or an application, my screen goes completely black for about 2 or 3 seconds, then comes back to normal, same thing happens when clicking okay or cancel on any notifications, such as, "do you want to install this" (when i downloaded Firefox), clicking "okay" the screen blacks out, then returns after 2 or 3 secs,
Yep i know it does the same thing when altering settings, but this ain't like that, as the desktop is exactly as it oughta be, before the black out, including any apps or folders etc. still being there ....... any ideas?

running, at the moment, live cd, on an amd64 dual core, 2 gig ram, an ATI graphics card ( series 5 xxx ) using the Vesa driver as the X-org driver gives me a totally black screen leaving me with the restart button as the only option?

For some reason Midori is unable to sign in to my YouTube account, but so long as I do not try to do this it works fine & other browsers do not have the same problem.

Today is a good day . Fourth day of the new release and we are back up to # 5 at distrowatch. Very Happy

Thanks to everyone for the kind words.

As far as Itaskng goes please wait for the Howto .It really is cool . In a few weeks when I have time I will try to recompile it with out the reflections cause that is what is messing things up for everyone.If I don't get to it ,I will when I build the next macpup.

jeffmitch I dont have access to a Amd64 machine, this is going to be hard for me to trouble shoot. I have run opera2 on a hp laptop that had that processor and it really had problems.Not like yours. The first thing I would suggest is to change wm's to icewm and see how it runs with that.

P123 remember this version of Midori is cut down and not really for the web I would recommend using something else.

FYI dont use arora with photobucket.

PostPosted: Fri 19 Nov 2010, 18:56    Post_subject: Favorite menu  

This is the how to for the favorites menu. By default macpup doesn't have anything in the favorites menu cause that for your stuff. Open the settings panel,go to the applications tab and click on Favorite Applications. Then set things up just like the ibar.Pick what you want and set the order you want them and apply.



This will add the favorite applications to the main menu and also when you right click on the desktop.

PostPosted: Fri 19 Nov 2010, 19:15    Post_subject: save icon  

How to make a save icon on the ibar. When you run puppy with a pupsave file it will give you a save icon on the desktop so you can save when ever you need to .I use this a lot when I compile stuff and I wanted one for use on the ibar. This is how you make it. First you need some info. Open rox and look in /root/Choices/Rox-filer and open Puppypin as text. Look at the last line above </pinboard>.



I am running a macpupsave file on a usb flash drive and puppys save option is /usr/sbin/save2flash.Yours may be different. Close rox.

Next open the settings panel ,go to the application tab and click on new application. This will open the Desktop entry editor. And this is how I set it up.



If you dont know where the executable is click on the button with the three dots and you will be able to go look for it.



Then switch to the icon tab and give it a icon. Then apply. Then add it to the ibar .It will be in the applications list near the bottom.



This is the way you would add a application or script you made. The .desktop file this makes is in /root/.local/share/applications

Very Happy Hello,
Mr. Green Green with envy.. Mr. Green
Actually, I`m thrilled for you dude, the success of the Macpup(s) has been amazing and well deserved..I, perhaps more than anyone realize and appreciate the time and talent you have put into this.. I am not minimizing Prit and everyone else...But dude, you must be obsessed...
.E-17 can be "frustrating" to build, at best..From the moment you saw E-17 on Puppy, you were hooked.. (Youtube)... Cool
Havnt had a lot of testing time as of late but so far this one has had been superb..
The only incident I can think of was once when setting a window over the top bar, E crashed, but clicking "recover" brought it back up, but reverted several settings, including moving the bar to the bottom and changing some icons!!..Reseting everything has held up thru several reboots now and I believe that the glitch may have been my machine`s onboard video ..
Anyhow, the Gimp functions well so far, I havnt installed a browser, as I always use a shared browser from /mnt /home with all my frugal`s but my Opera 10.61 and FF 3.6 both run fine..

Oh, wait...one more oddity....the pager clicking thru to the desktop...
It has happened a couple of times, and was only fixed by restarting X..
Once again, I attribute it to my i810.. (very glitchy, and I havnt installed Xorg high yet as I always test OOTB at first...)
Still playing with itaskNG, I think I will have to update my vid drivers to get the most out of it.. Now on to Conky... Arrow
Be back...
Anyhow, great release... Cool

@Runtt
I stumbled across this if you ever are interested in the composite issue. Its only a forum discussion but gives some info about how the composite module works (apparently on top of evas). Im sure once the final (can it be, is this actually happening finally?) version comes out they will have caught the issue. btw if you ever need some help at all with anything e related Runtt i am quite obsessed with it and know it inside and out. a bit of the deeply techincal aspects of it confuse me but still if you ever need some help with anything let me know.

Thank you joel , very much. I have always wanted macpup to work with both xorg and (x)vesa. I dont really like giving it features that are xorg only. So I will probably drop it from the next macpup.But Itaskng is fixable.(even though it really isn't broken Laughing )

Puppyluvr this e thing is all your fault. Laughing And look Distrowatch just updated. Cool.... Very Happy

Quick report:

I downloaded Opera, & then Firefox from http://www.diddywahdiddy.net/LupuNews/ but neither one would install with the usual method of just clicking on the pet. Finally downloaded Chromium with the Puppy Package Manager and that worked. All of your themes installed and worked by simply downloading them and clicking on the pets. (Very nice themes!)

BTW, does Macpup contain Shinobar's PPOE fix? I don't use that function, but if I'm going to give CDs of Macpup away, I want them to always work.

Iron and opera both installed for me (using opera right now) The only strange thing was that after installing opera is said the menu entry was in utility and it wasn't .It was in internet where it is suppose to be .Ill take the .pet apart and look at it later But it is working.



The Macpup-511.sfs is a rebuild of the lupu-511.sfs ,it's not a remaster.All of the apps on the puppy side are exactly the same as lupu's . If lupu doesn't have it ,This macpup doesn't have it either.

I need to comment on something that has happened elsewhere on the forum.This is my build of e17 .I built it for this project,Macpup.I have put a lot of time into this pup and the whole project. I really dont appreciate someone trying to rip the guts out of it. People dont go and dismantle teenpup or tipsy or lighthousepup cause they want something.
Mu,Ttuuxxx & mick01 have all built versions of e before. Someone can get it from them without Jacking with my stuff.Macpup is Macpup.This one is built on lupu.It has all the same stuff as lupu.But it isn't lupu anymore.It's Macpup.Taking some files and links out isn't going to help.I am not saying anything else about this.
