MyCp, interactive Copy installer for Puppy Linux


Here you are MyCp, Copy installer for Puppy Linux, with an interactive GUI including information messages, as well as action and error management, to know what you do on your system.
If you choose spot instead of root at installation, everytime you will run Copy, it will start as this user. No manual change needed by user in scripts or customised launchers; just click Copy entry in Internet menu, or run in a terminal *copy*. Simple in both circumstances. Anyway, for both users, if you need a desktop launcher, drag and drop the same /usr/bin/copy on your desktop and assign /usr/share/pixmaps/copy.png icon.
Pay attention, now: when you will uninstall my package, it will not remove your Copy configuration directories in your home (for root: /root/Copy, /root/.copy - for spot: /root/spot/Copy, /root/spot/.copy), as they have created by Copy program, not by my installer. Remove manually, if you sure you will not reinstall Copy in the future.
This package is available in my repository, pet packages section, up to newer version (from which will be overwritten).

Enjoy! :)

SSH on Urxvt: a useful blinking cursor on a coloured terminal


A blinking cursor can be useful in SSH (i.e. searching a document with Vi). A coloured console, too. It permits immediately to discern between local and remote sessions on your Linux box. For everyday use, create a launcher (an entry in Wbar, a script to click and so on) with this instruction:



Result is almost the same as image above. ;)

Xbatalarm 2.0 is out!


What is Xbatalarm? Click here to know.

Version 2.0 changelog:
- optimized code
- GUI tool to set battery alert percentage and time between alerts (called by Menu > System > Xbatalarm Settings or /usr/bin/xbatalarm-config).
- default percentage is set at 15% and time to 30 seconds
- settings are now stored in configuration file /etc/xbatalarm/xbatalarm.conf
- no reboot or restart needed anymore
- rc.local entry instead of /root/Startup link (to avoid one or more launches of Xbatalarm in case of X session crash)

NLS
This 2.0 software version contains more text than older ones, so NLS old packages can't be used.

Puplet developers
Let me know if you include Xbatalarm in your puplet. I'll inform my blog readers.

Enjoy! :)
