where can I find netwmpager and how do it make a stick menu


Hello,

Im trying to make a layout as this one : http://ubuntucorner.blogspot.com/200...etwmpager.html

But three things I don't understand.

1) Is there a netwmpager for slackware 12.2

2) How do I get the menu like on the picture where the menu reacts on a mouse-click.

3) How do i make conky work.
I copied all the files and adapting them but I see nothing.

Regards,

Roelof

Been looking for a SW package on Slacky-eu and LinuxPackages.net, to no avail. On SlackBuilds.org there's also no build script available.

But I just tried to make a Slackware package of the source with scr2pkg and that was easy.

Your other questions: Don't know, never used it.

2.) That panel seems to be pypanel. There is a slackbuild at slackbuilds.org. If you already have this and it's not working, you will need to post more information.
3.) Do you have conky? You'll need that -- look again at slackbuilds.org. If you have it and it's still not working.. then you will need to post more information.

Jacob

2) I have installed it, configured it but when I want to see the menu.
I still have to click somewhere and not at the button.

3) I have installed it, configured it , I can see text but not at the place where it must be.
As soon as I know how to make a screenshot in Openbox I will place it here in the forum.

If you need more info, say which info and I will give it to you.

Hello,

I did exit openbox en saw three error - messages.

1) :command not foundox/autostart.sh: line 1 :
:command not foundox/autostart.sh: line 2 :
:command not foundox/autostart.sh: line 3 :
:command not foundox/autostart.sh: line 4 :

My autostart.sh looks like this :
Code:
nitrogen --restore &
(sleep 5 && pypanel) &
(sleep 5 && netwmpager) &
(sleep 5 && conky)
2) Openbox message : Unable to find a valid menu file "var/lib/openbox/debian-menu.xml"

3) Conky : use-spacer schould have a argument of left, right or none. "no" seems to be "false" so defaulting to none.

My .conkyrc looks like this :
Code:
#avoid flicker
double_buffer yes

#own window to run simultanious 2 or more conkys
own_window yes
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_type desktop
own_window_hints undecorate,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

#borders
draw_borders no
border_margin 1

#shades
draw_shades no

#position
gap_x 0
gap_y 0
alignment top_left

#behaviour
update_interval 1

#colour
default_color FFFFFF
own_window_colour 636363

#font
use_xft yes
xftfont Sans:size=10

#to prevent window from moving
minimum_size 1280 0
use_spacer no

TEXT
${alignc}${voffset -1}${color FFFFFF}Date: ${color 86B7FD}${time %a %b %d}${color FFFFFF} | Uptime: ${color 86B7FD}${font}${uptime_short}${color FFFFFF} | Weather: ${color 86B7FD}${execi 300 /home/primo/.conky/weather.sh "NAM|CA|ON|TORONTO"}
sh"" root/conky/weather.sh /bin/sh^M: Bad intepreter: no such file or directory.

weather.sh looks like this :
Code:
#!/bin/sh
#AccuWeather (r) RSS weather tool for conky
#
#USAGE: weather.sh <locationcode>
#

METRIC=1 #Should be 0 or 1; 0 for F, 1 for C

if [ -z $1 ]; then
    echo
    echo "USAGE: weather.sh <locationcode>"
    echo
    exit 0;
fi

curl -s http://rss.accuweather.com/rss/liveweather_rss.asp\?metric\=${METRIC}\&locCode\=$1 | perl -ne 'if (/Currently/) {chomp;/\<title\>Currently: (.*)?\<\/title\>/; print "$1"; }'
Who can help me to get rid of al this error-messages ?

Roelof
