#104125 Conky in the Sticky notes? Why not :)

Posted by The waiter on 28 April 2017 - 05:47 PM


This post should be related to the thread where I announced my little project called StickyNotes but a brand new feature was added and I think it deserves a new one.


I realized I need a day calendar on the screen (we here in Slovakia have a weird habit to celebrate persons first name) not to forget to call my relatives or friends. I knew there is a nice terminal utility called "calendar" which shows day events according your setup. I made this feature possible but suddenly a new idea emerged. Why not to make it universal? We can put any linux command and we will have the outcome on the screen. Then another idea appeared. What if I add a timer for outcome refresh? Why not? OK, I will not bother you any more with this uninteresting story. Lets see the picture :) :

As you can see there are 4 StickyNotes and 3 of them are "animated". Date and CPU/Memory sticky resfresh every second and ncal every hour (hour is max in the settings).
Conclusion: Of course this is not a real Conky substitution but I think this module could be nice and useful for some of us and I hope you will like it. At this state of the project I need some testers to check the functionality etc.


Enjoy :)

PS: Use ncal -h if you want the day name and day number highlight (extra bonus for you :) )

#104053 Moksha Weather forecast module bug

Posted by The waiter on 22 April 2017 - 06:54 PM

Yes, exactly. I can confirm these words. I spent some time with this module and can say the same. This bug is on the Yahoo side. I am not sure I will fix this issue because if Yahoo will fix it, it will need another fix again. Let's give it some time and then we will see.


Maybe the good idea is to report this bug somewhere if possible...


Anyway. I have fixed another part of the forecast module. If you change the units in the settings dialog, the values on the right side don't respect it. Now it works properly. Wait for the new package in the repository...

#103971 Checkboxes sometimes invisible in Firefox with BodhiForum theme

Posted by The waiter on 17 April 2017 - 07:27 PM



Another many fixes done in moksha forum theme related to the tclock, slider invisible values, weird everything icon name displaying (center align) and cpufreq gadget.




I hope the theme is ready now for packaging and you will love it :)




EDIT: theme is in the repository (Thanx Jeff)

#103955 Checkboxes sometimes invisible in Firefox with BodhiForum theme

Posted by The waiter on 15 April 2017 - 09:43 AM

Trying adding as much fixes as possible before packaging. TClock color_class and text_class fixed. Now you can change the font size and color (moksha-clock-advanced package). 


Anyway, I struggled whole evening with GTK 3 scrollbar slider. It looks weird. Many circles instead of one. Have not idea why. Agrrr... 



Please let me know if you can see other glitches in this theme. I will try to fix it...

#103945 Sticky notes module

Posted by The waiter on 13 April 2017 - 07:21 PM

I am just a baby developer and Linux newbie but some way I like coding. I wish I were skilled as Ylee or E devs. With 2 little kids + 1 wife and many hobbies I am happy I am able making at least some module or theme fixing. Making the new module is a big deal :)

#103904 How to change font size in filemanager

Posted by The waiter on 12 April 2017 - 07:43 AM

As I am not sure you have places installed type in terminology:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install places-moksha


Then go to the module section and under the Files tab load the places module.

Now the places item should appear in the menu.

But I you want to have a places gadget on the screen with your partitions, USB and other devices (also with free/occupied capacity), you need to go to the gadget section and add places gadget on the screen.


PS: Proper package name is places-moksha and not moksha-places. Maybe that was the reason you did not succeed :)


Places gadget:


#103882 How to change font size in filemanager

Posted by The waiter on 10 April 2017 - 08:34 PM

Just type pcmanfm in everything/quick launcher and fm will appear. For having places item in the menu, you need to load places module in case you have moksha-places installed. In case you want also the places gadget on the screen, go to gadget settings...

#103876 How to change font size in filemanager

Posted by The waiter on 10 April 2017 - 09:43 AM

Ah, yes, you are right. It works indeed. When I just pressed "apply" button, it changed just menu font size. After restarting PCmanFM, filenames are changed as well. Thanx for info. One learns the whole life :)


PS: Thunar FM changes all settings just after "apply" button...

#103869 Sticky notes module

Posted by The waiter on 09 April 2017 - 03:34 PM

Good news for the project...


I don't know why (maybe I was enlightened, lol :) ) but I wrote by accident html tags in to the note text and it worked :) Great for making to-do list or what you want. Not all text formatting tags are allowed, but the most useful for this purpose are: <b> <i> <ps> <br> <tab>


Enjoy :)

#103809 Sticky notes module

Posted by The waiter on 05 April 2017 - 04:31 PM

I added a new feature yesterday. Font size changing by clicking the sticky header. I will try to make packages for you in the evening and then ask Jeff to put it to the repo for your testing...

#103792 cpufreq stop responding !?

Posted by The waiter on 04 April 2017 - 08:13 PM

I reinstalled Bodhi "thousand" times at my beginning to achieve more experience. I made many mistakes and sometimes I was not able to say what I did bad. If we won't solve your issue (I hope we will), you can backup your data and install Bodhi again. It is a matter of 10 minutes of your life. But...I must confess I am not happy with what I am saying, I'd like to know what was wrong ;)
