Quick post before going to the bed.
/etc/xdg/templates/_root_.icewm_menu is the right template to do the editing. It wont be overwritten. After editing, run fixmenus in console and restart wm.

Nice hacking you have done to get shutdown menu to your liking. You should post your hacked scripts, I am sure someone would like to try them.

And I still dont know what broke puppyinstaller. I am clueless still after investigating and replacing many apps used by puppyinstaller. Mystery.

Thanks mate will give a try at that menu location Very Happy

I tried to post the hacked script in the psd post but the forum rejected it...
I never done a pet but i might learn Razz or i will host it in my server and post the link (my milleage may vary on caffeine levels)

Hope you find soon the culptrit of what is breaking 019 I wanna try it Very Happy

BTW if i can help you testing/breaking something let me know, i am a noob in *nix with Xindows but I have lots of free time....

Right now it looks like 2 latest woof platforms seems to brake puppy installer. It can be even something in the init script inside initrd.gz which brakes it. I havent found any of my packages so far braking it.
I will revert now 2 woof download backwards and try tomorrow next test build.

Pemasu;

Do you have a changelog of what is different from 018 and 019 ? (just curious)

Also what is the goal/objetive of Snow Puppy ?

Also quick question;

how do <fn> are called for mapping and where can i map keys system wide and not dependant of the WM ?

same applies for the <windows> key

I have a great interest since almost everyhting works aut of the box i would like to try and create a .sfs addon for Acer Aspire One users that can install on top of your Snow for a full feature experience....

There wasnt big changes. Some application updates and Snow Puppy-019 was supposed to be bug fix release with updated syslinux and disktype binaries to support ext4 frugal installs to the usb boot medias.
But somehow I got broken puppyinstaller. Changing back those updated applications have not remedied the puppyinstaller.
So there isnt anything wrong with Snow Puppy-018 if you dont want to install to the ext4 usb boot medias.

Goal of Snow Puppy is simple. It is my main OS in my Acer 5820TG laptop, with Ice Puppies. I have uploaded it and compiled some drivers more and updated the applications and used latest woof downloads.
You can remap some keyfunctions with keybindings to the executable commands with xbindkeys-config found on the Menu. It is gui frontend for xbindkeys and creates .xbindkeysrc under /root for xbindkeys.

Haa, I think I figured out what is wrong with puppyinstaller and my updated packages. I got it working. Now I need to verify that the problem is fixed by making new woof build using latest woof.

Great! I am glad you found it hope it is totally solved, so you can lower your caffeine levels Very Happy

q: xbindkeys

is that what you used for your keybindings? I would not want to end up conflicting with any other method you have implemented in the core.

I know that iceWM has a few keybinds of its own for example...

yet another question:

if i use the template for the menus in the folder you pointed will that only apply to IceWM or will it be independant of the windows manager ?

PS: I tried to remaster the current running snow i had to experiment with remastering cds etc and now it wont boot Sad

I use xbindkeys. You can see the existing keybindings when you open xbindkeys-config. You cant make another keybinding if there exists previous one before you delete the previous one. I believe so.
In that /etc/xdg/templates is template for jwm and icewm. Editing just one of them affects only to that wm.

mikesLr. Thank you of the info. I have added your Xsane frontend simplescan to the ftp site under Pets. I renamed it to the simplescan-0.0.1.pet so that it is woof compliant.

snow puppy 20 frugal hdd on ext2 install. added sea monkey21rcl with adobeflash, firefox 5.0b2 with adobeflash, google earth 6.03.217, celestia 160, all work as expected including the universal installer which recognized ext4 partitions.

Briefly tested adobeflash playing in FF and SM with streaming web TV. Worked correctly for those few minutes.

pemasu, double monitors function correctly with both displays showing full screen unlike Ice puppy. It is not much if any problem for me. curious why occurs in one and not the other. Did you find anything in Ice Puppy to account?

Jim3630. No, You had intel graphics so you were using intel driver. It should work ok in both distros.
I believe it has something to do with kernel module drivers.

I noticed that I had forget to remove Picture Viewer .desktop from my woof. You can remove it with /usr/share/applications/Pictureviewer..something.desktop file and then run fixmenus and restart wm.

I will reupload Snow Puppy-020 soon if there isnt any other small problems.
