Activate what? These are the sources. It's are the kernel SFS, just install it as any other SFS. It's needed if you want to install third-party drivers.

Regarding the menu generator - just read my comment.

Puppy and Window Maker are indeed an awesome combination.

You can't remove it easily, you'll have to extract the SFS, delete the files and create a new SFS.

The clean way to do this is building your own copy of Next using Woof. Smile

Err... Woof? Or you mean woofy?
Ive used woofy before. There will an option to delete files from the sfs, as long as u give it the directory of files to delete.
As for woof, ive always thought its too dangerous to even install it

You can get the list of files that came with Xorg_High through /root/.packages/builtin_files/Xorg_High. Just delete those. You could also use Barry's tool to remaster and remove the files, I just don't remember its name.

Just got round to installing Next puppy - nice work Iguleder Cool very minimal and completely different to anything i have ever tried before Shocked
wm-xdgmenu.pet works well and is very fast to generate the menus.

cheers.

Currently building the first testing build of alpha 2, this one is way better. Menus work out of the box and it has some extras, like LXTask and Viewnior.

Thanks for the inspiration, stu90 Very Happy

So if I get it which I doubt I do???

What you show there is only available if one know how to get it going.

But in next version it will be there from scratch without us needing to install it? I don't remember that my "Next" had that feature?

I try to give exact name and date of my Next.

next-5.0.0.iso 14 Aug 2011 21 PM my local time I guess.
is that one too old then or should I have installed something failed to find that text or instruction?

Edit after reading this explanation.

Yes it is my bad you did the right thing. I have to read in the structured way you wrote it and sooner or later I get how one does it.

thanks for your patience.

Alpha 1 has pretty much nothing and it feels very incomplete. The next version has menus working.

And no, I explained exactly how to get menus working in alpha 1. Just install that PET and run wm-xdgmenu.

Hi iguleder,

I've checked your menu-script. It's very fast but has some problems. You're parsing the files for main-categories, but these aren't the real names. Please check /etc/xdg/menus/hierarchy, for the correct grouped cats.

Yep, I know. I did this for two reasons:
1) Makes the script way faster; it consumes less memory, there's no need for two-dimensional arrays or lots of dynamic memory allocation.
2) It's accurate enough, since Puppy's menu entries already match Puppy's menu structure.

I can improve the script, but I see no reason. It's good enough and very fast this way.
