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..

Very Happy Hello,

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.

Sub_title: 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

Sub_title: 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?

@ maxpro4u You need to use the CPU scaling tool, Menu-Applications-utility-Cpu Frequency Scaling tool I have never used it .I have never had a problem on any of my computers with them running hot in Macpup or puppy.I know they changed it in the latest Lupu but I don't remember what they did.

You might look this over as well:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=28443

@ puppyluvr Dude,99% of mnt/home ? Not good.So what happened?It crashed and now it's working ? Did you change anything? You should also mention that you are testing my update for itask-ng. Look Joel , No reflections !!!!

PostPosted: Fri 26 Nov 2010, 20:51    Post_subject: Itask-ng  

This is the how to for Itask-ng. To load Itask-ng open the setting panel and go over to extensions and click on Itask-ng. In the window that opens click add.



Select the bar you just added and click configure. The Itask-ng configure window will open. Here you can adjust the size of the icons,the location of itask.Etc. You can also open this window form Menu-settings-itask-ng now.If Itask-ng isn't running the window won't open.



If you then click on the Launcher and then configure you can change to a customized list of apps and make adjustments just like the ibar.





The version of Itask-ng that macpup has will have reflections under the icons this causes problems if you place itask-ng on one of the sides or the top of the desktop. Install the Itask-ng-02 .pet to get rid of the reflections. I recommend installing the .pet while Itask-ng is not running.

Thanks again, runtt and company for another masterpiece. Macpup is perhaps the most handsome and fastest e17 distro out there.

Unfortunately, the Places module/gadget doesn't work. It is the more convenient and better looking alternative to pmount. Anyone able to make it work?
