It is a must for the toolkit, and should be in every Puppy.


Could not agree more...that and ability NOT to save at shutdown

I think /etc/profile.local runs apps after the desktop loads. "desktop-restore -r" restores the backup (desktop-restore -b runs the backup).

Code:

#!/bin/sh
desktop-restore -r


In slacko 5.3.3 the script goes in /etc/profile.d

Posted update with auto backup in /etc/init.d. Command in rc.shutdown still works, but isn't needed. Thanks Rewin & pemasu!

hi jpeps ... instead of restarting x when restoring the pinboard you can just reload the pinboard
Code:
rox -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin

hi jpeps,

it seems to be working for me in raring.. (maybe pemasu has added some tweaks?)

if i copy a backup PuppyPin & globicons to /root/Choices/ROX-Filer and run
rox -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin
it loads my backup pinboard and any custom icons

I tried it out in Lucid. It also wanted the globicons copied to /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer

Hi.

Just want to post a link to a solution to use the Desktop-Restore Application automatically at boot up.

Here it is: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=756184#756184
It is based on a request/wish/idea by user solo at the post above the linked post.
