Yes, of course. I just find it totally unneeded - desktop icons are a means for quick access to common applications, but you already have Window Maker's dock.

There is also windowmaker drawer available in the debian repos. Easily configured. I can provide a basic walkthrough for setting up & configuring wmdrawer if someone would like me to.



Here is the complete desktop the above windowmaker drawer is pulled from.

you are right... Im just used to pulling the icon from ROX and using
that on desktop... ROX might not even be supported with the
NEXT/wmaker ?

wmaker makes an editable icon whenever an app is run, so,
if the app can be started, there is no icon problem; however, I
could still see ROX as helpful in this mix, as some applications
use oddball names or spelling, so, seeing the click-and-run icon
in a visible bin directory is quite useful.

thanks again for this innovative puppy distro !

For Next Pup users who do not like the current emelFM2 in Next Pup there is a new pet Iguleder made that has the default actions with files working much better. I am attaching the pet for anyone who would like to try it out.

There are a few instructions though.

delete ~/.config/emelfm2 before you install it.

put "feh" in /usr/local/bin/defaultimageviewer after installing.

So after editing defaultimageviewer it should look like this:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
exec feh "$@"


feh does not like .gif files it seems so double clicking to open a .gif file will not work but everything else i tried seemed to work great.

Sorry for the noob question Sad How to install a package from a .pet file under Next puppy? There is no Rox here that would accept click-on-filename...
Hey, is there anybody here who knows the secret about command-line usage of ppm?

To install a .pet in Next Puppy you will need to click on the .pet you want to install to hi-lite it.

Then right click on it to choose open with.

Type in petget & that will install the .pet.

If you install the updated Emelfm2 .pet you can then install .pets with a double click.

I have the same problem with an error message trying to install with petget regardless of which pet I try to install.

I've just booted with the new trinity-3.5.13.sfs and it's working great so far. It's much easier for me to use the KDE WM than it is to use the native Next WM.

Thanks for the new Trinity,
Jim

Petget uses tar binary. I had some problem with squeeze tar binary which caused failure of extracting txz. Not sure of course, if tar binary from debian sid will help with petget but you never know. Sid tar binary has been in exprimo for several versions now.

AFAIK tar 1.22 support xz, lots of pups are now on 1.26, at least, that's what I upgraded to recently...

Good news: I added the content of the updated emelfm2-0.8.0.pet (file-by-file, then commented out Line38 in a file which reported error). Now it can invoke petget that installs the downloaded .pet files well.
Thanks pacer106.

any chance you could briefly explain how to access emelFM2 and emelFM2-0.8.0.pet... once i get them open and see the files of each, i'm assuming i can change the files with leafpad... but, can't access the files of either one? thanks...

The pet itself can be downloaded from this link:

See pacer106's post above.
Well... it is a shame... I extracted the pet in wndws using 7zip Embarassed .
Resulted a folder. I put it in a pendrive then copied its files to their place one-by-one in next puppy (everything is under /usr ).
