It's not necessary to install rar - if any of supported tools isn't installed, it simply won't be displayed in the GUI.

Greetings!


I noticed that since it didn't show rar as an option until I added it. I do need it as most of my compressed files on my Win box are rared.

Again, thanks for this very handy tool.


I'm just trying to understand this situation... is there a current Puppy or derivative that does not have support for rar files?

Thanks,
Monsie

To answer my own post, changing --title to -title in the code prevents that error, and I can now use verbose mode, but still compression fails with:

Code:
tar: --: Cannot stat: No such file or directory


Or, if I try to zip:

Code:
zip error: Invalid command arguments (no such option: -)


This is when just attempting to archive one single file.

Thank you for reporting this.

Ok, I found an old Fluppy-013 ISO (You have upgraded Gtkdialog, I presume? The inbuilt versions are too old for PackIt.).
The problem was the use of -- switch with dirname and basename cmds (yeah, probably too old busybox version).
Same with zip (upgrade recommended, btw).
Well, the -- switch is a bit paranoid precaution, to cover dir/filenames that start with a dash. Rare case. Also, since right-click & drag'n'drop sends a full path(s) to an application anyway, only the use from command line could be the case.
I've withdrawn this precaution (not fully though, but other commands (except mksquashfs, btw) do work with this).

As for xterm's problem with '--title' - I found that the most compatible variant of this parameter is '-T' (works with lxterminal, xterm, (u)rxvt).
___________

Version 1.2:
- can create SFX archives (7z/rar/zip only) - choosable via combobox next to archive name
This functionality depends on the presence of the following files:
7z - 7zCon.sfx (/usr/local/lib/p7zip/)
rar - default.sfx (/usr/local/lib/)
zip - unzipsfx (by default it's in /usr/bin/, but can be wherever $PATH can reach)
- better compatibility with older busybox and "real" xterm
- added: version number in titlebar

First post updated!

Greetings!

Now that's service Very Happy

Thanks very much. I'm mostly using Carolina but I have a few non-PAE machines that run Fluppy, though tweaked out of all recognition. It's a nice challenge to keep these machines alive.

Yes, I'm using updated gtkdialog. Haven't updated zip yet, but I will.

Thanks again.

Hi Jplt

At the design stage I was thinking about this, but didn't implement it for a few reasons, inter alia because dir2pet has its own GUI and it would look...hmm...inconsistent.
Besides dir2pet exits always with 0, so no error handling is possible.
I'm using makepet-1.1 - rightclick utility instead.

As for SFS of course you can do it - just choose mksquashfs in Pass_1.

Greetings!

Update, version 1.3:

- added Spanish translation (thanks to Nilsonmorales)

- mksquashfs' compression method is now choosable.
Supported methods are: gzip, lzma, lzo and xz, although in Puppy world I've seen only gzip and (in newer Puppies) xz.
If no method is found (which means the default gzip), comboboxtext won't be displayed at all.

- can create also *.exe (Win/GUI) self-extracting archives (only 7z/rar), but this requires the presence of:
> 7z.sfx file in /usr/local/lib/p7zip/
> Default.SFX file in /usr/local/etc/
Both files can be found in 7zip/WinRAR packages for Win (just extract the exe installers).

- .sfx/.exe extensions are shown only if appropriate modules are available.

- I discovered that unzipsfx does not support encrypted, self-extracting archives, so this combination (ZIP + .sfx + encryption) is no longer allowed.

- bugfix: wrong compression level calculation for rar

- xterm changed to $TERM (which calls xterm Wink )

- some other minor fixes.

First post updated!

Greetings!

Version 1.4:
- pinstall.sh is now Woof-friendly (big thanks to Pemasu)
- updated ES translation (Vicmz)
- it's possible to create .tar.zip, .cpio.zip and .iso.zip archives preserving "normal" name inside, instead of '-' (thanks to using named pipes).
Therefore also .tar.sfx, .cpio.sfx and .iso.sfx extensions have been unblocked.
It seems to work perfectly fine, however (emphasized by me):
zip -h2 wrote:
Zip now can read Unix FIFO (named pipes). Off by default to prevent zip
from stopping unexpectedly on unfed pipe
, use -FI to enable:
zip -FI archive fifo

so caution is recommended,
- small bugfix in routine that tests sfx/exe abilities
