Hi,

For me and others not familiar with the inner workings of an operating system, those utilities will be handy to deal with changes done in the system.

Many Thanks.

Desktop file editor: - from Terry:

Download source code:
http://smokey01.com/saintless/source-code/desktop-editor.zip



This is GUI editor for converted /usr/share/menu files from Menu Puppy (mk-jwm.menu and desktop-convert scripts) in /usr/share/applications folder.
Probably you will not need it at all since the conversion works fine.
Useful program if you need to change menu category for example instead using text editor.

Pureftpd-GUI from Fred:



Information from Fred's post:
Quote:
Basically it's taken from here by GuestToo:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=12859
But I added some options using yad for:
- Choice of directory to share
- Give a custom ftp username and password.
- Choice for anonymous support or not.
When choosing anonymous still the user may get a prompt for password.
Leaving it empty and click OK should work then.
When using the default: (username: ftpuser password: dog)
Test it then in address bar of your browser:
Code:
ftp://ftpuser:dog@127.0.0.1/

Change Jwm Theme GUI - will be added to the next DebianDog version.
This is an experiment for me to create something useful for theme changing from Terry's mk-save.gtkdlg script. It works but any improvements are welcome.

If you like to test download this deb package:
http://smokey01.com/saintless/Fredx181/change-jwm-theme_1.0.0-1_i386.deb
Just install it with right click Install/upgrade or from command line (example in /root):
Code:
dpkg -i /root/change-jwm-theme_1.0.0-1_i386.deb

Start it from Settings -> Change JWM Theme to start the GUI and follow the screen instructions. 12 new themes from Puppy added in /opt/docs/jwm-themes.

mk-jwm-menu from Terry: (Menu Puppy)

Source code download:
http://smokey01.com/saintless/source-code/mk-menu.zip

Menu Puppy is generated from /usr/share/applications/*.desktop files according freedesktop.org standards.
Menu Debian is the default Debian menu generated from /usr/share/menu files:
To switch the menus use System -> Menu Puppy / Menu Debian
In a few seconds the new menu will appear.

ffmpeg2sfs is mixed GUI script made from Fred's apt2sfs and RemasterDog.



Running ffmpeg2sfs script will create ffmpeg.sfs separate module from downloaded with apt-get packages. You can simply install ffmpeg with apt-get or Synaptic but the size will be 44 Mb uncompressed data in your save file. ffmpeg2sfs will create 8 Mb sfs module in few minutes for the users who like to keep the system size small and load ffmpeg.sfs only when it is needed.
We can not provide ready for use ffmpeg.sfs downloaded with apt-get from multimedia repositiry because it will contain modified version of non-free dependencies. Distribution of such ready for use ffmpeg.sfs will be violation of the license.

But for download and use right away solution we have compiled from Fred without non-free package dependencies:
ffmpeg-static-0.9.4.squashfs- 13 Mb:
http://smokey01.com/saintless/DebianDog/Extra-modules/ffmpeg-static-0.9.4.squashfs
Load the module and type in terminal ffmpeg, ffplay or ffprobe for help menu.

If you like to have ffmpeg separate sfs module with smaller size use ffmpeg2sfs script to create one only in few minutes.

Redeb from Fred - script for extract, edit and repack debian packages.

Source code download:
http://smokey01.com/saintless/source-code/redeb.zip

Single click on deb package in XFE will extract the content in a folder in the same location. Right click on the folder -> Scripts -> Create-deb-from-folder will repack it again.
Same in Rox right click options extract-deb-package and create-deb-from-folder.
From command line:
Code:
redeb /path-to/package.deb

will extract debian package.
Code:
redeb /path-to/folder

will repack the folder as debian package in case it has the needed debian package files included.

OK, open for discussion.

Still much to add and explain but you can read and comment what is added to the moment.

Terry, Fred, William - anything you like to be added/edited is fine.

Toni

Hi Toni,

Very,very nice!

One small thing for apt2sfs:
apt-get clean is already run automatically.

EDIT: Sorry, didn't read well, I now see it just shows that it's done automatically.

No, Fred. My mistake, sorry!
I edited the information after reading your post and I thought I posted after you here. Seems I forgot to answer here while posting in other two threads.

I have read a lot of posts and info,
but I cannot understand how to get DebianDog to save changes automatically.

I installed it to it's own partition.

What is the boot method you use and the file system on DebianDog partition?
Please, post the boot code you use to boot DebianDog. This will help a lot.
