PuppEX Bookworm64 Build 230309 with Tint2 as DE (or Window Manager)

Posted 03-11-2023 at 06:30 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS 230309
I've made a new version of PuppEX Bookworm64 with Tint2. Now you will have sound also when logged in as root. That is essential since you normally run all Puppy/PuppEX versions as root. To fix the sound issue I followed the advice here.
First I installed PulseAudio and Pavucontrol with apt install pulseaudio pavucontrol. Then I added root to the Audio Group with usermod -a -G audio root. If you don't get sound when using YouTube (for example) you shall open up a terminal...

Second auto-hiding tint2 panel equivalent to Openbox' client-list combined menu, on the top-center of the screen

The client-list combined menu shows a list of windows from all desktops, with the window titles. It's good for moving fast to a given window when you have lots of them spread around, maximized and minimized. But it does not allow you to move windows between desktops, and requires a click in order to be activated.

Tint2 taskbar is able to do both things, and does not need clicking to be brought, with the auto-hide functionality set. But the standard inconvenience is that it's a horizontal...

tint2conf -- very nice configuration tool for tint2, comes by default with Debian's tint2, I guess

I've been using tint2 for ages already, and I didn't know this config program existed. I've even had found something that looks like an older version of it before I found out I actually had it installed already.

https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages...nt2conf.1.html

I'm not that much into it for the merely aesthetical aspect of the configuration, but because it allows you (indirectly) to create something like a secondary tint2 bar that's quite different from...

How to fix (possibly) wrong icon appearing for hp-systray

Posted 04-17-2014 at 06:37 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Depending on your DE configurations -- probably if you use KDE or mainly KDE/qt applications (I'm on Openbox, but I have "export DE=KDE" on my autostart for some reason), or perhaps if you use tint2, HP systray applet may show up with non-responsive "stolen" icons from neighbor applications and behave oddly in general.


It's generally set to autorun by there being a file "/etc/xdg/autostart/hplip-systray.desktop". All you got to do is to edit such...
