PupSysInfo 2.7

Puppy forum member radky created PupSysInfo, a very detailed system information GUI app for Puppy.

Quirky has version 2.6.3, however radky has released 2.7:

I have upgraded the PET for Quirky.

Note, Quirky also has HardInfo, which is written in C and requires GTK.

They are similar, but PupSysInfo is specifically designed for Puppy (and Puppy-derivatives), so provides more Puppy-specific information.

PeasyPort 2.2

Puppy Forum member rcrsn51 created the "peasy" series of apps for Puppy.

Quirky has many of them, including PeasyPort, a network scanner. Quirky has version 2.0, but rcrsn51 has now released version 2.2:

I have created a PET, named 'peasyscan-noarch-2.2.pet' and updated Quirky.

Note, rcrsn51's PET has two binary executables, 'pnscan' and 'arp-scan', but Quirky already has those, so I have repackaged the PET without them.

aemenu-pango, replaceit

These are a couple more binary utilities used by musher0 in his recently-used-files PET. I have decided to put these utilities into Quirky. I already posted about 'bcm' yesterday:

This is the aemenu utility from the wewm project, modified by vovchik to support pango markup of text:

I have compiled it in Quirky Xerus 8.1.94 and created a PET. The binary will be at /usr/bin/aemenu-pango

This is a simple text file string replacement utility:

I have compiled it and created a PET. The binary will be at /usr/bin/replaceit.

Live-CD ask save at shutdown

When Quirky Xerus is booted from CD, or a frugal installation, there is a "save" icon on the desktop, for saving the session to internal or external drive.

The save window has a checkbox, which if ticked, will bring up the save window at every shutdown. This defaults to unticked, as I was thinking of users who might only want to save a session occasionally.

However, one tester reported having lost some work, setting up a theme. He forgot to save. Hmmm, this is because he has a Puppy Linux background, where a window pops up at shutdown asking if want to save the session.

In deference to those with a Puppy Linux background, I have changed the default to ask at shutdown.
So now, even if you have never clicked the desktop "save" icon, you will be asked at shutdown. Every shutdown, but you can untick the checkbox if you don't want to be asked at every shutdown.

bcm popup messages

BaCon Cairo Messenger (bcm) is a popup message box for shell scripts, written by forum member vovchik.

Oh dear, not another one! I am losing count of how many there are already in Quirky. Well, we have these:

pupmessage, xdialog, gxmessage, xmessage, popup, gtkdialog, yad, pupdialog, gtkdialog-splash

So, why not have one more!

I was reading about MRUF created by musher0, a PET to list most-recently-used files. His PET has three binary executables, so I thought why not put those binaries into Quirky.

Starting with bcm. This is a very pretty popup messenger thingy, written in BaCon. Vovchik posted about it here:

I have compiled it and created a PET. It will be in the next Quirky. It is /usr/bin/bcm, only 39KB. I also included the source in the PET, /usr/share/doc/bcm/bcm.bac and a help file, bcm.txt.
