Jim,

This might be more portable:

#!/usr/bin/env bash

Anyway, thanks for the script! :-)

[ANN] TaskTray 0.5

TaskTray 0.5 (shows open windows as icons in a growing widget) has been
released.

You can install it by entering this URL into AddApp:

  http://rox4debian.berlios.de/0install/TaskTray.xml

To upgrade:

- Right click on the application and choose 'Versions...' from the menu.
- Click on 'Refresh all now'.
- Ensure 'Help test new versions' is selected.

For more information, including package downloads, see:

  http://rox.sourceforge.net/desktop/TaskTray

Changes in 0.5:

- Set size request for tasktray, to avoid growing/shrinking panel.
- Option to show a menu box left, right or both.
- If a "skip tasklist" window becomes active, zoom in its icon,
if there is one.
- Use themed icon if the application's icon is a fallback icon.
- Use the application's icon, not the class group's.
- Only show menu when button 3 pressed, to avoid opening it accidentally.
- If a window not to be shown becomes the active window, set the active
icon to None.
- Check if AppInfo.xml exists before loading app options.
- If icon of name 'foo-bar' is not found, use 'foo'.

Hi,

what should I do to get this running through 0install on my amd64
machine? it needs python-wnck which needs libwnck18 which isn't
available for 0compile, and it won't pick up the version installed on
my system through apt.

Can you check your feed please? I'm getting File Not Found errors. 

Thanks,
grim.

P.S. I don't expect this backtrace (copied from the popup error window)
tells you anything interesting, but here it is anyway.

launch applicactions when I start X

Hi,
I have an interesting setup, featuring Rox-desktop, with Beryl window manager. To get the most of my system (which is Ubuntu), I need to run nm-applet (for wireless) and gnome-power-manager (for suspend & battery monitor) all the time. Is there a way to launch those automatically when I start an X session?
Thank you!
carl

Picky (image viewer) patches

Do people out there actually use Picky?

Picky is stable at 0.4.5, but the development version is stuck and 
unfinished at 0.5.1.  The author 'Rds' seems to have left us.

I've made various small changes over the past 3 years which are in the 
attached patch.

* Added ability to set the window background color for when the image is 
smaller than the window.  I like to have a dark grey as many other 
image/photo viewers do

* Fixed the image loading so that the window updates immediately when 
multiple files are dropped on it.  In 0.4.5 this only works if a 
directory was dropped.

* Various other little things which I honestly can't remember why I 
changed them :)

If people show some interest I may revive this sucker and make a more 
official update.

Comments/Suggestions?

Ken

Re: Picky (image viewer) patches

> Comments/Suggestions?

I am very much interested in improvements for Picky. I used to use it
in the past, but there was a memory leak or so, that made it crash
after viewing a couple of dozen files. I cannot say if it's still like
that.

I am willing to try it out!

If you're using ROX-Session, put them in the AutoStart folder. If
you're using gnome-session[1], they should be there already.

I'm still thinking about how to do integration with native packages. Here
are my current thoughts:

I've added source packages for Python-Wnck and Libwnck18.
