Interlude . . .

in other words you can mount sftp/ftp sites, samba shares, bluetooth, or ssh as a filesystem like we do sfs files (pcmanfm had something similar in their tree, but I'm not sure if anything came of it) btw does anyone know why the pcmanfm resource usage is so damn high compared to rox (~3-4x higher for no apparent reason), is it caching something?

Here is an xfce pet to try. This is just the window manager and panel. I have not included thunar or the desktop.

You need dbus and dbus-glib first.

http://www.smokey01.com/jemimah/saluki/pets/dbus-1.4.16-i486.pet
http://www.smokey01.com/jemimah/saluki/pets/dbus-glib-0.98-i486.pet

After installing xfce4-4.8.0.pet, exit to the prompt, then type
Code:
xwin xfwm4

to change to the window manager.

Check the control panel for new xfce configuration programs.

If you want to enable compositing, first go into the rox options and turn off Compatibility->Override window manager control of the pinboard and panels. You might also want to disable "Pass all backdrop mouse clicks to the window manager" since xfwm4 doesn't do anything with those clicks anyway.

I was able to modify the xfce-appfinder into an improved control panel.

Subject description: Reboot are Shutdown will not work
 

Downloaded and burn and made savefile to HD. I loaded the program for xfce and went to prompt. Typed by mistake xwin xfem4 and hit enter. Then the system returned normal page. Now when I try to to shutdown are reboot I have to hit the Ctrl, Alt and backspace to get them to work. It will say goodbye but it stops there. Can not get to go back to prompt are restart x-windows.

I'm working on coming up with a way to handling mounting and unmounting in xfce.

I've modified the xfce drive mounting applet, which now seems to do the job well. It reads the mtab and fstab to get informtion on the drives. I've added hooks into pup_event_frontend_d to keep the fstab up to date and modified the applet to ignore stuff mounted in /initrd.

It's working great so far.

It seems pretty plausible that saluki-005 will be ROXless.

Just go the prompt and type
Code:
xwin jwm
to start over.

I like the idea with xfce:)
also it would be nice to have a version without applications like it is now, so any user can add apps he wants:)

I want to thank Billtoo for the help with the 003 release. I was lost as to how to use it. By a PM to him and a super fast reply back he help me by telling me what to do. Many THANKS for the great help.

Saluki is running great on my old IBM r51, centrino 1.7 G CPU, 512 RAM radeon mobility graphics, 32M shared.

Xfce installed fine, installed Firefox and a few small pets (including tempicon Razz ) and google-earth.sfs, libreoffice-3.4.4.sfs ( both loaded with sfs_load).

I really like the laptop tools, handy. Is there a location for the sources? I'd like to try them in Slacko.


Great job!

The source for the applet is here:
http://www.smokey01.com/jemimah/saluki/source/ppower-jemimah-01.tar.gz

Also look at
http://www.smokey01.com/saluki/pet_packages-saluki/acpid-1.0.10-saluki.pet
to see all the junk it needs.

It depends on cpufreq-utils and acpitool and xosd as well, and possibly other stuff that I forget now.
