Jwm Theme Maker internationalised

March 29, 2013 — BarryK
Forum member trio wrote JWM Theme Maker:

I previously had it in the 'noarch' repo, but realised that it has a x86 binary executable in it, so have moved it to 'common'.

Recently, L18L has internationalised the script, so I have created a new PET, and bumped the version from 1.5 to 1.5.1 (5K):


Trisquel64 Puppy

Barry, here's something nice I've been working on: [url=][img][/img][/url] It's a 64-bit, Puppy-like distro built from Trisquel 6.0 packages using my infrastructure. It has JWM and ROX-Filer, plus its own package manager (sort of a fast, awk-based PPM) - in the screeny, you can see it in action with mtPaint (I just needed a quick way to take a screenshot :)) I also installed Firefox and GIMP using the package manager - all dependencies were installed automatically in seconds. Kinda nice - you can see Firefox shipped with Trisquel's defaults package, which is a dependency :) Currently it has nothing but many console applications - I'm going to fix ROX-Filer (it has that gdk-pixbuf loaders disease), than start adding graphical applications one-by-one until I have an automatically built product.

"Not yet, but I'm going to post a thread in the forums, I guess. I'll state this is the only thread for this project, to avoid those ... "problems" we had with several Puppy-related projects. Currently, ROX-Filer fails to draw all sorts of icons and JWM does not have a proper configuration and a quick solution for menu generation. I'll upload this thing once I overcome these issues.

"Good news! The Trisquel64 Puppy project is on its way to beta quality. On my netbook, it uses 47 MB of RAM without X, 66 MB with a plain desktop. In this screeny DeaDBeeF is running with 320 KBps OGG and GCC is building the browser, so I have an excuse why it consumes so much memory :D The ISO (which has the devx integrated into the main SFS) is 211 MB, with kernel 3.2.42, Mesa, development tools, Python and tons of man pages for development. I even added the GNOME icon theme and Trisquel's great artwork (plus, a JWM theme I made), as you can see. [url=][img][/img][/url]
