How / where to edit to add clicking the cpu graph in the tray so it will open a file such as top or hardinfo?


Not likely. It is a "swallowed" app by JWM, which simply means that xload (the app you see in the tray) is actually a standalone app that JWM can reduce to a tray app. It would require a different (or totally recoded) xload to accomplish your goal... unless some JWM expert knows another way?
I forgot how I did it...
but once I changed what happened when I clicked on the time in the tray.
Is clicking on the cpu graph somehow different?

Doesn't look or function like the version I have in Lupu-526.
i.e. Doesn't offer the various super options in the right-click menu.

Sorry, my mistake...
I'm confusing this with Firewallstate...
Tried installing Firewallstate version 2.0, but it wouldn't run, so I've uninstalled it.
Perhaps I should try version 1.9.
Aha...just now installed that, and it seems to be working OK. Very Happy

Sub_title: Work in 431not Wary
 

I am setting up an old Intel P4 . Installed Wary but it would not find the sound cards but 431 found both {only planning to use one} . Is there a package of sound card drivers for Wary or I am better off just going with 431?

Sub_title: link in Barry's blog gives Error 404 not found for the ibiblios page
 

Where can I download Wary? I'm getting desperate to find a version of puppy that will run on both my laptop and my desktop machines AND reliably support my USB3 3TB drive, even if only on the USB2 port.

Update: Have now gone to the look in the "test" directory on ibiblio indicated on Barry's downlink, and find no wary iso or wary folder corresponding to the iso named...

Otropogo. Usually the first post of the first page is the source information of the stuff which the thread is about. Sometimes you need to scroll the first page a little before you find what you are after. I have taken nowadays custom to post links at the top of the first post also. Just to be sure that fast scrolling people does not miss what they are after.......

Thanks. Downloading it now. Slower than molasses...63KB/s

I tried to work backwards from the last page here looking for the right link, but the first one I found was bad too...

I haven't had much experience with this, and it's mostly with pburn, where Zigbert usually puts the latest version's download link right on the first page of the thread. But in this case, I followed Barry's suggestion and went to his Blog, and clicked on the ibiblio link there.

That gave a 404 error, and going to the cited /test/ directory didn't turn up the iso either...I then went to the end of the forum thread and worked backwards, but the first download link I found, which logically should be the most current, also produced a "404".

So I think it's fair to say that I had grounds to protest.

I think Zigbert's procedure of placing the current download link(s) in the first post of the thread is best, as anywhere else it's going to be shuffled. But of course that will only work if the thread owner is willing and able to keep it updated or can find some mechanism to delegate that process.

BTW - out of curiosity I slowly scrolled through all of page 1, and then all of page 2 of the thread as well. I don't know if my eyes are failing me, or what, but I couldn't see a download link for the 5.2 iso in either of those pages.

OK. I see now. But IMO the announcements and links are backward. The top one should be the most recent, and the less recent ones should follow it in reverse chronological order down to the earliest.

In any case, it's just wrong to offer dead links in an active discussion thread.

PostPosted: Wed 26 Oct 2011, 01:46    Post_subject: Wary desktop black, no icons, wallpaper, no ROX  

Have just burned and booted a couple of times with Wary 5.2. Configuring the video was particulary difficult. Had to settle for a weird resolution, because the only one that worked out of the box for me (1600x1200) is too fine for my eyes, and the usual display adjustment doesn't work for me on this Puppy. I usually select 1280x1024, but can't make it work in Wary. The substitute loses some 10% of my screen on each side.

More significant is the problem of no icons, no wallpaper. All I've got after xorg finishes is a black screen except for the bottom task bar. There are no icons, I can only launch programs or utilites from the drop down menu by right clicking on the screen or on "menu", and many of the menu tabs don't work for me.

Pmount opens, and seems to mount and unmount partitions. But clicking on the mounted icon doesn't open a window to the partition. Also, the preference tab doesn't appear to accomplish anything. The lack of drive access is probably related to the non-functionality of ROX. Clicking on its tab in the applications menu doesn't do anything. So there's no way to open a file.

Unless it's an image file supported by GIMP, which does open and work from the menu, and will navigate the filesystem , show and open files it supports (but not any others, they remain invisible).

Seamonkey also works, I'm using it right now. And surprisingly, it's picked up my bookmarks from somewhere, (possibly my bookmarks.html file)?

ABI doesn't work.

The wallpaper selector opens and displays the names of wallpaper jpegs, but doesn't do anything when I click on them and on "apply".

The problem you describe has been seen when using a savefile from a previous version of Wary. If you are using a previous savefile then this solution worked for me:


From the terminal run these two commands:

rm /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders
gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders >/etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders

When you reboot all should be as expected.
