@mavrothal: Any chance that all references to gtkdialogX are changed to gtkdialog to facilitate future updates? .


Woof-CE is awaiting your patches. I'm sure you (and probably others) can do it Wink

I have now updated the pet and added it as solution 3 to the initial post.

The only fixes:
- path in input field is selected to facilitate drag&drop
- "OK" button in path selection dialog now works in Precise

I think that's it. My thanks to mavrothal and all who contributed.

Which PPM version was the original (from which puppy)?
Any chance to provide patches?

Slacko 5.9.3

Certainly, but
1) First I have to come to grips with Github. Have created an account, but I'm not sure how to preceed
2) You and zigbert are currently turning PPM upside down. Makes no sense to provide patches for constantly changing code
3) The pet is pretty new and forum members had little chance to test it . It's much too early to commit it. Give it some time to mature, it's no bug fix.

On a related note: I see that you reverted a new version of pet2tgz in github and moved it to the testing branch. I see problems with this new version. Is the testing branch open for comments?

What kind of problems?
The nice thing about git is you can always hit "git reverse" Wink
I believe that comments are open. You can even comment on individual lines of a commit (but not the full file - github bug).

Temporarily creates a duplicate (w/o footer) of the .pet file, thus needs twice the free space on the target partition as estimated by PPM.

So would you expect me to provide a patch for a patch or would this rather be a separate patch based on the current version (in which case I wouldn't feel comfortable as my patch would use someone else's patchwork Crying or Very sad ).

But you bypass pet2tgz altogether. Why do you care if it changed?

The following is a brief outline of the process I used to do this:
1) On github, create my own fork of woof-ce.
2) Using 'git', clone my fork to my local hd.
3) Using 'git', checkout testing.
4) Patch or edit the source files in the local clone.
5) Using 'git', commit the local clone to my fork on github
6) On github, make pull-request.

??? I do not. I use it - 100%!

Because I care if something I use doesn't change for the better. In general I like what I saw: Simpler code, easier to read. But to ditch BK's original in-place manipulation of the .pet file is not a good idea. If my "free space calculation is wrong" argument doesn't convince you, maybe you should consider that the download folder could reside on a slow USB stick. Duplicating downloaded files on such a drive will deteriorate the speed of an already slow PPM process even further.

@gyro: Thanks for the outline. I managed until step 3, but this already creates a bunch of questions. I'll try hard to find answers and eventually will post remainiing questions to Karl's HOWTO. Needs a bump and should really be a sticky. I would be glad if you could assist me further.
