The old yaf-splash

September 17, 2010 — BarryK
Zigbert and others have expressed their liking of the old yaf-splash. Well, we can have it both ways.

I have modified /usr/bin/gtkdialog-splash with this at the beginning:

if [ -f /usr/X11R7/bin/yaf-splash ];then #100917

[ "`echo "$*" | grep ' \-font '`" != "" ] && exec /usr/X11R7/bin/yaf-splash $@

I also modified all the package-selection files in Woof so that the old yaf-splash PET package will be included in Puppy builds.

I then created /usr/share/doc/yaf-splash-new.htm, that explains the situation.

The new yaf-splash does not use the '<dash>font' option (ignores it), whereas the old yaf-splash always uses it (in practical usage).
