Download and install went well this time.

Installed grub properly on dual boot (Windows 7) machine - hasn't done that in a while so  ;D ;D

No delay at boot this time around either, used a swap partition but not /home (don't really need /home on this machine).

Been running nice and smooth, did notice a couple items though.

1. There was no entry to exit fluxbox in the "Fluxbox menu" submenu - the window manager's native exit, not the vsido-exit script. So I added one to mine:

Code: [Select]
< snip >
      [end]
      [workspaces] (Workspace List)
      [commanddialog] (Fluxbox Command)
      [reconfig] (Reload config)
      [restart] (Restart)
      [exec] (About) {(fluxbox -v; fluxbox -info | sed 1d) | xmessage -file - -center}
      [separator]
      [exit] (Exit)
[end]

If vsido-exit fails for whatever reason, using the native fluxbox exit is the elegant way to quit fluxbox and get back to the lightdm screen (or console if the user doesn't use a DM). I think you should add that to the default menu.

2. I thought there use to be a vsido-exit.desktop file in /usr/share/aplications; doesn't seem to be one now. Was it removed? Nice addition if a 3rd party menu generator is being used.

I like the FluxBox Exit entry and will add it to the next round of ISO's

I have never created nor have seen a vsido-exit.desktop so I would imagine a) it is from someone else who created and used it or b) my memory continues to suck

If you find it, send it along and I will take a look at it and add it

Thanks as always for the testing, feedback and of course for using VSIDO

^ Probably saw it early on when xfce4-panel was in use/testing ...

made it myself; here you go:

Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
Name=VSIDO Exit
Comment=Exit Session
Exec=vsido-exit
Icon=/usr/share/icons/icon.png
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=System;Settings;Application
GenericName=VSIDO exit script

icon.png is the vsido orb in /usr/share/icons - maybe give that image a less generic name, or use one of the other images there.

should show up in menus that search the /usr/share/applications (pmenu.py in this instance):



verified it is working; script launches and I can log out etc ...

Some of the non-English speaking users can hopefully add some translations for you.

Excellent.. Thank you RatMan.. I appreciate this (and that my memory served me well on this matter at least)

New Fluxbox menu section for VSIDO (proposed)
 

 


Code: [Select]
    [submenu] (Fluxbox) {Settings} </usr/share/icons/LinuxLex-8/apps/fluxbox.png>
        [config] (Fluxbox Menu) </usr/share/icons/LinuxLex-8/apps/fluxbox.png>
        [workspaces] (Workspaces) </usr/share/icons/LinuxLex-8/apps/fluxbox.png>
        [submenu] (Fluxbox Styles) </usr/share/icons/LinuxLex-8/apps/fluxbox.png>
            [stylesdir] (/usr/share/fluxbox/styles)
            [stylesdir] (~/.fluxbox/styles)
        [end]
        [exec] (Fluxbox Menu Editor) {cd ~/fluxmenu && python fluxMenu.py} </usr/share/icons/LinuxLex-8/apps/fluxbox.png>
        [reconfig] (Reload Fluxbox Config) </usr/share/icons/LinuxLex-8/apps/fluxbox.png>
        [restart] (Restart Fluxbox) </usr/share/icons/LinuxLex-8/apps/fluxbox.png>
        [exec] (About Fluxbox) {(fluxbox -v; fluxbox -info | sed 1d) | xmessage -file - -center} </usr/share/icons/LinuxLex-8/apps/fluxbox.png>
        [separator]
        [exit] (Exit Desktop) </usr/share/icons/LinuxLex-8/apps/fluxbox.png>
    [end]

I like it.. what do you think RatMan and anyone else?

A slight change request -

In the vsido-exit script, there is the line:

Code: [Select]
vslo_class="$vslo_ttle"
which gives the script the xprop WM_CLASS(STRING) of "yad" "What would you like to do?"

That is sort of a pain in the ass if a user wants to do per app settings for that dialog box across different window managers.

Change that line to something like:

Code: [Select]
vslo_class="Exit_VSIDO"

will make per app setting much easier. Name it what you want, just don't leave white space.

Booted the efi iso -

Quick boot time, and everything working out of the box - AMD chip and ATI graphics card.

Yes indeed, the efi iso's have been a serious god-send!  Loving it.  Mof, I've even got the subwoofer working with 5.1 surround sound!  8)
