Your work and @PeeBee's work are excellent examples. Externally so close in concept, look, and feel.

Are you sure you 2 aren't working together/collaborating? Smile Great efforts!

Thanks Very Happy. No we do our pups individually, but I do check out other pups for inspiration.

peebee's LXpup is indeed Cool
I think developers infuence one another and the good/popular ideas are passed along.

Just wanted to mention again that the patch is in the first post, and will be
removed once I build a new release.

Edit: a bit later. I had to modify the patch slightly, since I noticed a bug when I tried it in pfix=ram mode. This will fix the double icon problem with restarwm tint2. What it does is renames all the .desktop files in /root/.config/autostart so they are not read by puppy

Hello Tman, very nice puppy, only problem I have so far is I can't run Pmusic, in the console it says, missing gtkdialog r512. I can't find it in the PPM.

Hi Tote,

It appears there are 2 versions of gtkdialog installed.. I may have installed the older version when I was compiling apps for JXS.
Your problem should be fixed by deleting /usr/bin/gtkdialog and the symlink named /usr/bin/gtkdialog4

Code:
rm -f /usr/bin/gtkdialog && rm -f /usr/bin/gtkdialog4

The new version is already installed in /usr/sbin, but it was not accessed because /usr/bin has priority in the path.

Thank you, for your report. I will fix this bug in the next release.

Thank you Tman, that worked. Very Happy

If I turn off warbar it comes back on next reboot, and opposite to that, if I activate conky it doesn't survive reboot. (Not a big deal. Just saying.)

Thanks again.

Yes those are the default settings and they always reset when you restart.
If you want to change them, delete the symlink to wbar in the /root/Startup folder.
If you want to have conky activated every time after reboot, you can make a symlink (shortcut to) conky by dragging the needed script in /root/my-applications/bin to /root/Startup. The script is named something like toggle_conky.sh
I am posting this from my Android tablet and am not in Puppy at the moment, so the filename I gave you may or may not be exact.

Yep, that worked. Thanks again. Still liking this, I may change Firefox for the latest version, but that's about all I'd want to change.

Nice one, Tman.

Really nice pup Tman.

Noticed that the jwm tray height is busted, i.e you can't make the taskbar
thicker in height.

Do you know if this distro would run on older processors (say pentium 4, athlon single cpus, or is it really for dual/quad cores? I changed it to a gz compressed sfs for now. (I noticed a millisecond black screen when browsing web pages, even on dual core).

Just wondering if it is possible to use pngs instead of svg for network, firewall and ram indicators on the taskbar? I always liked ttux network icons and they look shinier than svg (adobe) things.

I think all the bugs are mostly sqooshed now in slacko 5.7!

You should find that this distro works on those, as well, OOTB.

Here to help

Thanks gc.martin, hopefully if I have to stick a stick in another comp somewhere it will just boot up with out problemas.

As regards the taskbar, this is the look I want to achieve.

I tried to turn them into svg s and they looked like black treacle dripping down a white chalkboard. Like those days at school when the teacher was out of control..

Hi Smithy,

I think perhaps you are confusing the Xfce4-panel and tray with the Jwm tray. For the next release, I will rename the option for "restartwm jwm" to "restartwm jx" to (hopefully) reduce confusion.
In this default mode. the Jwm window manager is used, but the main panel and tray are replaced by the more user-friendly "xfce4-panel"

To change the hieght of the xfce panel, you need to right-click on the panel then goto --> Panel --> Panel Preferences. A small gui will pop up and the option to change the height of the panel/tray is labelled as "Row Size".

The file to control the jwm tray is /root/.jwmrc-tray
Note there is a backup of the original jwm tray, along with some other custom tray files ,for example:
.jwmrc-tray.original, .jwmrc-tray.custom1, etc.

As for the SVG icons, that was 01micko's choice to include them.
Although they are bigger in size than the png icons, their advantage is that they should look more attractive/detailed on large TV's or monitors. I don't think I will bother trying to alter them.

Hope that helps.

Oh, I must have been trying to resize the wrong height panel, thanks will try again.

As regards the taskbar firewall and network svg's, they are TINY on a 1400x1900 monitor.

Plus the hard drive light (on) indicators are very small and unclear, especially against a dark background.

I mention this because there in no "undo" in Puppy!

I realise that these are developer issues, but just thought I would mention them since they are so important in making derivatives.

Cheers.

Hi Everyone,

I have released version 3 of JX_Slacko. It includes bug fixes found in the previous releases (thanks testers), as well as some newly added features.
Pprocess has been removed, in favour of LXTask. I have changed some of the restartwm "***" commands. You can find them at the bottom of the conky window. I have decided NOT to add Metacity to the list, due to the fact that I can't get it to play nicely with many of the Metacity themes I've tried.

Tote and maybe some others may be happy to know that this pup now remembers your on/off settings for wbar and conky, so no modification is needed on the user's part anymore. I still plan to add Fbpanel to the mix, but that will have to wait for the next release, along with some polishing of the smaller details.

I think the next release will be the final version... but I am taking the slow route these days with Puppy stuff, so don't expect the final version to be out for at least 1 or 2 months.

Happy testing! Very Happy
