This is the How to for shelves. Just adding a little more info to what is in the first post of the thread.You use the Shelf settings window to set up and configure your shelves.Menu-settings-shelves You set the size,background,position,setting for apps being over or under it, And if you want it on all or just one desktop here.As a personal rule If I want a shelf on just one desktop I set it up while I am on that desktop.

Hi,

I am under the impression (1) that Macpup is a Puppy and (2) further that it is based upon Lupu 5.1.1 and (3) even further that despite its attractiveness and obvious attraction it does neither more nor less than Lupu 5.1.1.

If am correct (even in my first point) does this not mean that Puppies are collectively the outright stars of the Linux ratings for the last seven days?

My regards

Added after reflection:

(1) 2,722 views 'buntus as a group
(2) 2,165 views Puppies as a group
(3) 1,848 views Mint
then 1,384 views Fedora (part of a group ?)


Fire and rain
with congratulations to BarryK
and all his dedicated Puppy followers
including the Macpup and Lupu teams.

@Runtt- In response to your post a few pages back I'm curious,what do you foresee for macpup in the future? The most complete e17 puppy distro, or the most compatible e17 puppy disto?

That depends on what all you mean like that. I would like to have a pure e17 distro with out any other wm's But I may not do that. There have been times in older macpup when something would run better in jwm than e17.But who knows..... They have so much stuff for e17 now, a webkit browser and media player, etc . That stuff may be more than I can pull off.My main goal is to have macpup continue. I had so many problems with the last 3-4 snapshots in 4.3.1 ,That is why it took 6 months for a new macpup to get built. I really thought that macpup was coming to an end.If not for 01micko tipping me off to lupu , This projects could have been Done.

And now our little macpup is in a dog fight at DW,only 65 hits out of first place.

Today a little info about themes and backgrounds.

Personal themes/backgrounds are in /root/.e/e/themes or backgrounds.
System themes /backgrounds are in /usr/share/enlightenment/data/themes or backgrounds.

Dont remove the system themes. E uses these if the theme you are using is missing parts like a clock....

[please note this is only for mp 511]Most backgrounds will still work after you run edje_convert on them. For example take a background PUP1.edj .Put it some where you can work on it like /root/working , open rox there and run edje_convert PUP1.edj after that move it where it goes and run it.

Use menu -settings-themes or wallpapers to change stuff.



If you want to use your own background ,put the png or jpeg where you can find it .Then open the wallpaper settings window and click on picture. Then in the window that opens go find and select it .You then get some options to pick from after that it will build a .edj file for you and install it.

If you click on the advanced button you can chose to have the background only on one desktop or all of them.



After using edje_convert on an old background..

PostPosted: Wed 24 Nov 2010, 15:32    Post subject:  some answers and a logo idea  

@cgt_1991: I don't know why are you getting the hotpink screen in Urxvt. I always run Macpup with Xorg and 24 bits depth color. Maybe it's related to your problem, but I'm just guessing.
@runtt21: You are welcome. I'm enjoying this distro a lot Smile

By the way, I've just made a logo for Macpup; maybe you'll find it interesting.
It's a first try, just an idea I've had and I wanted to share it.

Bye.

Subject description: My permanent Desktop
 

Between Kitchen remodeling and fixing motorcycles I did not have much time or energy to get my Desktop to look the way I wanted it to. Tried both txemijendrix and CatDude how tos. Both worked OK for me but was not happy with my look. So I tried something different using default E17 Theme and backround. Not using qiv or feh. Below is what I ended up with. Simple and elegant for Me (IMO). Different strokes for different folks is all. Smile

Code:
#avoid flicker
double_buffer yes

#own window to run simultanious 2 or more conkys
own_window  yes
own_window_transparent no
own_window_type normal
own_window_hints undecorate,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

#borders
draw_borders no
border_margin 3

#shades
draw_shades yes

#position
gap_x 0
gap_y 4
alignment top_left

#behaviour
update_interval 1

#colour
default_color  8f8f8f
#default_shade_color 000000
own_window_colour 262729

#font
use_xft yes
xftfont sans:size=9

# Force UTF8? note that UTF8 support required XFT
override_utf8_locale yes

#to prevent window from moving
use_spacer none
minimum_size 1024 0

#mpd
#mpd_host localhost
#mpd_port 6600

TEXT
${alignc}Date: ${color e0e0e0}${time %d/%m/%y}${color}  Time: ${color e0e0e0}${time %H:%M}${color}  |  Kernel: ${color e0e0e0}$kernel${color}  Uptime: ${color e0e0e0}${uptime_short}${color}  |  Cpu: ${color e0e0e0}${cpu}%${color}  Ram: ${color e0e0e0}${memperc}%${color}  Swap: ${color e0e0e0}${swapperc}%${color}  Disk: ${color e0e0e0}${fs_used_perc /}%${color}  |  Motherboard: ${color e0e0e0}${acpitemp}°C${color}  Cpu: ${color e0e0e0}${acpitemp}°C${color}  Disk: ${color e0e0e0}${acpitemp}°C${color}  |  ${if_existing /proc/net/route wlan0}Signal: ${color e0e0e0}${wireless_link_qual wlan0}%${color}  Up: ${color e0e0e0}${upspeed wlan0} kb/s${color}  Down: ${color e0e0e0}${downspeed wlan0} kb/s${color}${else}${if_existing /proc/net/route wlan0}Up: ${color e0e0e0}${upspeed wlan0} kb/s${color}  Down: ${color e0e0e0}${downspeed wlan0} kb/s${color}${endif}${else}Network Unavailable${endif}${alignc}


Everything below "Text" in /etc/conky.conky.config is in one long line since this is a horizontal conky. My simple startup script Works for me.
Code:
#!/bin/bash
conky &


Just make a text file in /startup and make it executable.

@ puppyluvr read the first post in this thread again. Esp the part about dont load composite.

@txemijendrix that's cool But We want to avoid anything with apples or anything real osx looking . Not a good Idea.

WE like stuff like this...

@rokytnji Dude that's cool

We dropped back to #7 today at DW, Things will start to settle down soon.

The next thing I want to show is the use of EFM the enlightenment file manager. It is cool BUT I need to show a few thing bout it. I'll start on that later. Some new themes on the way in a few days. Very Happy

Subject description: system running hot
 

I just picked up a used compaq evo. Macpup runs great(and so does the other pups I put on it already) but it is running a lot hotter than luci238 (which I am using at the moment). Is there a setting for the fan?
