TinyCore Team!

Everything seems to work just as it should so thank you for your effort i making TinyCore 3.0 progress. I guess that a RC is coming soon. One thing that I noticed that somewhat puzzled me is that the .filetool.lst file by default contains opt/backgrounds in TinyCore 2.11.5 but not so in TinyCore 3.0 ALPHA 8. Is there some reason for this? Thanks again!

Have fun developing TinyCore further,

One thing I would like to see is a generalisation of the $ICONS/wbar stuff.

I am building/testing tablaunch, as it has auto-hide, something I sorely miss in wbar, and I'd like to be able to update it when a new extension is loaded. For my own setup, I can happily hack away at whatever part of TC to get it to do what I want, but that's not really practical for something I may submit for the repo later.

One solution could be a directory into which scripts of this nature could be dropped, and have /usr/bin/desktop.sh run the scripts in that dir, but I'm sure there are other ways to do so.

@althalus: if you set the unfocused alpha to 0 (-falfa 0), it's invisible until a mouse over.

I tried combining -falfa with -always-ontop to try and get the same behaviour as something that properly auto-hides, but unfortunately I get an ugly square of my background stop on top of any windows in wbar's way. Leaving out the -always-ontop still leaves wbar in the position of being stuck behind my windows where I can't use it. Unfortunately at this point in time, wbar still just doesn't cut it for me, at least not until it has a proper auto-hide feature, so I stand by my original request in this topic.

For now I've remastered TC and replaced the wbar_icon_upd.sh script with one that does the same for tablaunch, but I'd like to be able to submit tablaunch to the repo complete with a script to have it automatically update when new extensions are installed.
