Gtklogfileviewer removed

While I'm on the attack, I will add this one. I had a problem with this utility not working correctly, also there have been reports on the forum. I reported this to MU and he did ask me to supply more details about my particular problem (the newly-appended lines were not displaying properly) but I don't have that info anymore. MU thought that certain characters in the file may have been upsetting gtklogfileviewer -- probably that is the case. As I recall though, it was a pretty ordinary plain text file -- and at the time I fell back to using 'tail -f' which worked perfectly.

Anyway, I have to move on, and have fixed it the quickest way that I can. I have removed it and wrote a simple script using Xdialog that completely replaces gtklogfileviewer -- this is needed, as Pburn uses it.

Image viewer
My apologies, as this is a bit off-topic, but do take the time to try out this new image viewer ("viewer" does really suffice). Geegie is very impressive and could be a real asset to Puppy. Thanks to muggins for the dot pet.
