[CLOSED] 5.x RC1 chat due to 5x now final
« on: September 12, 2013, 10:33:10 PM »
Hi
I have started this thread for anyone to waffle on about matters relating to 5.x RC1 which does not involve any allegation of bug report for a TCZ---which would go to the TCE bug forum
AND
does not relate to TCB matters for RC1

CLOSED now that 5.x is final

As I use either flwm_topside or openbox I thought I would import idesk from the 4.x series

It works with changing the idesk dependency to mention it is
Quote
expat2.tcz
fontconfig.tcz
Xorg-7.7-lib.tcz
instead of 7.6

I am not an expert on idesk but I needed to use it to confirm if TCZs gave me
the correct desktop icons

here is proof of idesk in action.....but could be tweaked better I am sure
---caption tip fails....no great loss ATM



click on image to zoom if interested

2) I am RH mouse user, double clicking with L mouse opens the app as expected

a rough guide cheating off the readme follows

mnt/sdb1/home/tc/.idesktop/wolf.lnk
contents of
Quote
table Icon
  Caption: wolf
  CaptionTip: its the wooliff
  Command: firefox/firefox
  Icon: firefox/browser/icons/mozicon128.png
  Width: 60
  Height: 65
  X: 50
  Y: 200
end

mnt/sdb1/home/tc/.ideskrc
contents of
Quote
table Config
  FontName: gothic
  FontSize: 11
  FontColor: #37CFA6
  ToolTip.FontSize: 11
  ToolTip.FontName: gothic
  ToolTip.ForeColor: #0000FF
  ToolTip.BackColor: #FFFFFF
  ToolTip.CaptionOnHover: true
  ToolTip.CaptionPlacement: Right
  Locked: false
  Transparency: 100
  Shadow: true
  ShadowColor: #000000
  ShadowX: 1
  ShadowY: 1
  Bold: true
  ClickDelay: 300
  IconSnap: true
  SnapWidth: 10
  SnapHeight: 10
  SnapOrigin: BottomRight
  SnapShadow: false
  SnapShadowTrans: 200
  CaptionOnHover: false
  CaptionPlacement: bottom
  FillStyle: fillinvert
  Background.Delay: 0
  Background.Source: None
  Background.File: None
  Background.Mode: Center
  Background.Color: #C2CCFF
end

table Actions
  Lock: control right doubleClk
  Reload: middle doubleClk
  Drag: left hold
  EndDrag: left singleClk
  Execute[0]: left doubleClk
  Execute[1]: right doubleClk
end

(C) Backup and move .xsession out of the way and supply a new one with contents suitable maybe for openbox users
Quote
/usr/local/bin/Xvesa -br -screen 1024x768x24 -shadow -mouse /dev/input/mice,5 -nolisten tcp -I >/dev/null 2>&1 &
(sleep 2; idesk &) &

export XPID=$!
waitforX || ! echo failed in waitforX || exit
"$DESKTOP" 2>/tmp/wm_errors &
export WM_PID=$!
[ -x ./.setbackground ] && ./.setbackground
[ -x ./.mouse_config ] && ./.mouse_config &
[ $(which "$ICONS".sh) ] && ${ICONS}.sh &
[ -d ".X.d" ] && find ".X.d" -type f -print | while read F; do . "$F"; done

# start openbox
exec openbox
exit $?

Naturally as I do not know what I am doing  TRY AT OWN RISK

EDIT image has been updated to show wbar

onboot list was amended to remove flwm_topside and have openbox only

In case you can't spot it, that config points to a certain font name gothic
I don't have it loaded at the moment but the icon still gave me a font.

How about that! ;D

fluxbox users could mod my exec line to fluxbox with luck


AAAH I have just deleted my image folder for RC1 instead of a previous image I had above

I am curious why your windows manager needs to be started from .xsession?   

iDesk looks interesting,  honestly have never seen how to configure it before, thanks

You are probably correct as I said I am not an expert and followed the readme.

could not see an easy sample but import of cpio should be ok based on
http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2010/08/cpio-utility/

Code: [Select]
cd test
tc@box:/tmp/test$ touch a b
tc@box:/tmp/test$ ls
a  b
ls | cpio -ov > /tmp/test1.cpio
a
b
1 block
###################
cd /tmp
tc@box:/tmp$ cpio -idv < /tmp/test1.cpio
a
b
1 block

EDIT
my build of xarchiver not opening it.....damn

I know there are other compressions but simple tests only from me YMMV

EDIT

I might need to rebuild-----that I have imported some dependencies later

ahh found it, open xarchiver and choose folder to create a new compression
--pull down compression type and cpio and p7zip are not listed

will need to reboot to check if its the same for 4.x series and edit later

EDIT
in 4.x its the same deal....so I have not made a mistake, there are too many dependencies in current xarchiver as per

unless someone can give a better explanation,
I don't think I can test xdg-utils until we have a true Desktop environment
---it appears to have main use of mime type registration?

Quote
xdg-utils is a a set of command line tools that assist applications with a variety of desktop integration tasks.

so in xarchiver, it says install it for extra features but not sure what they might be,
as in 4.x I was only using it as my pcmanfm/spacefm archive manager.
---and normally only unpack gz/bz2/tar files
