No, I tried that and found that it was very quirky.
Files just wouldn't tar correctly. I don't know
why that is. I'm not a programmer.

Frankly, just memorizing the command 'dir2pet' isn't too hard Laughing

________________________________________

I mentioned this to Billtoo on another thread.

When you make a pet package that has several applications
inside, it will therefore have several corresponding desktop
files inside.

To make a pet package in this situation is easy if you
know this trick.

Here it is....
Remove all but one desktop file from your folder and proceed
with the regular 'dir2pet' routine.

Then near end of routine, return the desktop files
that you have removed back to their original place.

Then finish the tarring. .... and a final pet is created
that can have several apps inside.


That's how I have been making this Right click pet in recent months.
Apparently not many people know this method.

new version of Right click 526

Lots of new changes under the hood.
Here are the hilites.

1) newest Bacon recorder 233 allows white space in output
name

2) mp3 sound files are converted easily to wave files

3) compatibility to either Nicoedit or leafpad as texteditor

4) bz2 file format is now handled nicely

5) upgrade to zathura_gui 1.9 which can deal with
whitespace in file names

6) Scottman's script txz2pet is now included and txz files
have a right click menu

7) backup_pupsave is now included. This allows your
pupsave file to be backed up each night automatically.

version 5.2.7 - a small upgrade

I tried out newest Wary and decided some
changes are needed to my pet package,
especially how Nicoedit and leafpad are handled.

Also a .patch file now has a right click option

right click option package - new version 5.2.8

I found Stu's pet useful so I put it in.

It makes a pet package very simply and quickly.

I had better warn inexperienced users that rightclick options
sometimes launch powerful processes that take
over your computer, so be careful which folders you
use this on.

new version 529 of Right click

I put in xdialog boxes so users can cancel mp3 conversions
or folder to pet package conversions. This is safer.

Hi don570,

I was wondering if it was at all possible for you to make a right click option that copied a image file to /root naming it .rox_background
a system link will also work if " ln -s -f " is used to force it to over write an existing link.

this would be so that a image can be used as a background for Roxfiler, the only other thing to do is add a .gtkrc.mine file to /root with this content
Code:
# Rox background
pixmap_path "/root/"
style "rox" = "default"
{
  bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = ".rox_background"
}
widget_class "*Collection*" style "rox"


x will need to restarted to apply the change, removing the link restores rox back to it's default so maybe a button on the right click menu to do that would be needed also,
I'll leave it up to you on what they should be called, that's only if you feel like doing it, I just felt that it was a handy addition.

And maybe right click on a directory option 'open with Rox'? Opens Dir in new Rox window...

Yeah dave, I looked for that, defiantly would be handy, I usually open the directory
then right click the back arrow to open the previous directory in a new window.

I guess it the same thing but back to front Laughing

@Dave S, Geoffrey:

Something like this? It should open the selected directory in a new ROX-Filer window.

Nevermind. Laughing

Three years in, and ROX-Filer still manages to surprise me from time to time! It's just so beautifully unlike every other file manager I've ever used.
