I simplified the Enlightenment menu by removing all submenus.

If you like the menus, like me, better as simplified menus without anykind submenus, install the attached pet, and there you go.

Subject description: Pmount GUI
 

After Exprimo Update 0.0.2, the Pmount GUI has a 'large' icon for mounted drives, but this can be a problem for those who mount multiple partitions. The vertical dimension of the Pmount GUI can extend outside the viewable screen. Smile

Oops. I need to change it to more reasonable. I didnt change spesifically Pmount icon but it seems to use same icon as the app I changed it for.
I have to fix it.

Edit. I found more suitable one. Not oversized but good looking version for mini-filemgr.xpm. I will include that one. I will upload the next UPDATE for my icons - DOTdesktop files and probably simplified enlightenment menus...if I dont get much protests.

I have a plan to write build scripts for Xfce.

I did this once but they were very simple and had no extra configuration options so the packages were quite big.

I think I'll write new ones when I upload a new release of Next Puppy.

Dave S did splendid job with Openbox-Fbpanel windowmanager pets. Now Radky has finetuned those pets to even better integrate to the Dpup Exprimo. I have uploaded these new openbox-exprimo and fbpanel-exprimo pets to the pet_packages-exprimo repo.
Thank you both. Now I have triple window manager OS. Great.

Thank you DaveS for providing the pet packages for Dpup. Smile

For anyone interested, the Openbox/Fbpanel pets are available in the Exprimo repository, or you can download them here.

Is it possible that the Puplet name and version number could be written on top of the background (whatever background one chooses to use) - rather than either present only on a pre-made background (usually dominating the background)?

Since most of us seem to like a customized appearance, and many have expressed a desire to know precisely which version we have loaded, this might be helpful.

I know that I have several versions of Puppy, and several sub-versions of certain Puplets, and it's not always easy to know which is loaded on which computer -- especially when the background has been customized by the user.

It would be cool to have a block area of text - and a menu in setup from which to select what data to write to the screen - and to also be able to choose where on the screen to place it.

Or does that already exist and I am just out-of-the-loop?

It sure would. I usually just edit the text under the 'home' desktop icon.

You could do it with conky and use /etc/DISTRO_SPECS file for the relevant informations.

{exec grep 'DISTRO_NAME=' /etc/DISTRO_SPECS | cut -d "'" -f 2} ${exec grep 'DISTRO_VERSION' /etc/DISTRO_SPECS | cut -d "=" -f 2}

Home? There is no Home icon in slacko now when I look at it. Maybe there are in Dpup Exprimo 5.X.5?

I did something similar now inspired by you. The Help icon that one can be changed to Slacko B2 Help or just Slacko or Dpup Exprimo 5.X.5

looks good to me.

I do something that looks odd. I make a txt.txt file and then I symlink that one to the pinboard and rename it like the OS version I am in. Looks very bad. Ugly don't do that at home Smile


Sorry Nooby... the little house icon that I think says 'files' is also called the 'home' icon. (bit of a hangover from dark distant Ubuntu days)
