Subject description: How To Stop Puppy From Providing Me Connectivity Updates?
 

When I automatically connect to my WiFi LAN on startup using Frisbee, The blue puppy appears with a status update on the connection progress. I would prefer that it work silently. I edited frisbee.conf so that the following line appeared.

announce_state_changes=0

It was "1" previously. But upon restart, the puppy dog still appears. Is there any to tell him to sit quietly? (Good Dog) Smile

Jody,
You are thinking like a programmer instead of as a user. You turn off that notification by going into frisbee and unchecking the option, "Announce State Changes". Having made your change inside of frisbee's "business", you will see the option as already not checked. That is all that the change you made affects.

When the state of that option is changed, frisbee does what it takes to make it happen. So, check the box and then uncheck it. Restart DHCP to test for the notifications to stop.

I intentionally made the frisbee I inherited more user friendly so that people would not need to mess with its innards. But thanks for raising the issue.

Hi Richard:

I am in Frisbee, as we speak, and no where do I find a check box option for "Announce State Changes". I reset DHCP and the puppy notifications still appear.

I really appreciate your assistance though.

What version of frisbee are you using?
Which puppy are you on?

check image below, by the mousepointer is the checkbox for turning off
notifications





OBS! if you do it manually you should change in /etc/frisbee/frisbee.conf
the value of announce_state_changes accordingly

to do it manually
Code:

rm -f /etc/dhcpcd_state_notify

turn it on
Code:
touch /etc/dhcpcd_state_notify

I have tried both 0.9x, v1 and v2.x Betas of Frisbee. None of them show the state changes check box. I searched for a v3.0 PET for Frisbee, but no luck.

As for Puppy, I am running Precise v5.7.1.

Jody,
[EDIT: Flippant comment removed (by me, rerwin) to avoid unintended offense.] Precise Pup 5.7.1, Slacko-5.7.0 and Lucid Pup 5.2.8.6 already contain the "official" 1.1 version of frisbee or 1.2, which have the "Announce State Changes" checkbox at the bottom of the window you see when you start it.

Installation of any of the old "betas" will corrupt the official frisbee probably beyond repair. Uninstalling the betas is insufficient. So please start fresh with one of the above puppies and do not install any Frisbee beta.
Richard

EDIT: My warnings against use of Frisbee betas have been posted several times, but somewhat long ago, now, probably around the time of Precise 5.6 and later.

I noticed that Frisbee's notifications seem to be handled by /lib/dhcpcd/dhcpcd-hooks/99-notify . I edited that file to change the appearance of the notifications. Would deleting it disable all notifications?

Of course a fresh system would be better, but maybe there's a reason Jody doesn't want to start completely from scratch...

Why do you keep digging yourself deeper into the "hole" you have created? Precise Pup 5.7.1, Slacko-5.7.0 and Lucid Pup 5.2.8.6 already contain the "official" 1.1 version of frisbee or 1.2, which have the "Announce State Changes" checkbox at the bottom of the window you see when you start it.

I wasn't trying to dig myself into a hole Richard. I looked in the Puppy package manager to find Frisbee, and it was not there. So naturally I looked around on the forum. Your information is the first citing that Frisbee was integrated with Precise.

And no, I'm not going to completely reinstall Puppy to fix something small like Frisbee. The information you gave me just now should be easier to find so users don't do this in the first place.

Thank you Cimarron. You've demonstrated that it doesn't take a lot to try and be accommodating had helpful

And had Richard wanted to be helpful as opposed to condescending (look at the first sentence of his reply), he could have mentioned the perils of installing Frisbee betas days ago who he posted on this thread. Why wait until now to criticize me for digging this hole I've created for myself.

That hook script corresponds to the frisbee-1.x released versions of frisbee. The "betas" instead use 5 "99-" hook script files that combine functions for Frisbee's network icon and the notifications. Deleting them would impact Frisbee's network_tray icon but would be necessary to stop the notices. Here's an example, 99-down:
Code:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/X11R7/lib:/root/my-applications/lib:/opt/samba/lib
export DISPLAY=:0

if [[ $reason == "NOCARRIER"   ]] ; then
   if [[ $interface == `cat /usr/local/Frisbee/interface` ]] ; then
      killall -SIGALRM frisbee_tray
   else
      killall -SIGUSR2 frisbee_tray
   fi
   rm /usr/local/Frisbee/iface/$interface
   gtkdialog-splash -placement -timeout 6 top -bg hotpink -text "$interface is Down"
fi
The "official" implementation separates the scripts into 99-notify and 99-network_tray, which work differently from and incompatibly with the beta hook scripts.

The solution, then, for the beta situation would be to comment out (#) the "gtkdialog-splash" statements in the 5 99-ers (down, ifup, release, timeout, up).

I fixed it way easier than all that.

I reinstalled Frisbee 1.0-0.912 that I initially downloaded. It works but with all of the large ballon-style notifications. Then I search the Puppy Package Manager, and found Frisbee 1.1 Modified. I could now install it because v0.912 puts in the network tray dependency.

It now works with either small-fonts notifications, or without notifications by editing Frisbee.conf and disabling state change announcements. There was never a check box, however it works as I desire now, so I could care less.

Thank you all

I meant I could care less about the box missing; not about the community's welfare. Holy crap!

If you're going to go there, many times I've asked questions of the Linux community (ie. how do you defrag?) and they just ask me, "Why do you want to defrag"? They never tell you how, even though there is a way. And even in this thread, I was confronted with statements from Richard asking me "why I kept digging myself into a hole", and other derogatory crap. Meanwhile he omiited a details in an earlier post that may have prevented that.

So don't come off all sanctimonious with me about how I'm withholding from the community welfare. It goes both ways. If one doesn't feel accommodated, why should they accommodate back? When one feels either a tone of hostility or disapproval, it becomes best just to get the info you need and then go about your own business (which is sad because generally I don't think that way; I'm QUITE a giving person. You don't know me so you're not fit to say.)

Just for the record, there are people who are very helpful here, and I greatly appreciate that.

Folks, "I could care less" means that you still care and "I COULDN'T care less" means you don't have a care.

Rerwin, don't let anybody modify the distros with Frisbee Notifications.
PolarQT-005 and Triton (french Precise 5.7.1) have icons which appears ant that is perfect. And funny. Programmers don't like fun, but users do. Twisted Evil
Each one will do what he likes at home.
Personnaly, I add and icon (Tux) to see better the notification. At home
