Re: [Sawfish] Bug view info file

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

The about-dialog uses a GtkLinkButton, so it's up to the Toolkit what browser is beeing called. I can't remember how GTK+ determines what to use for GtkLinkButton widget.

I sat that to evilvte. Opening the manual using "Help"->"Sawfish-Manual" opens an evilvte with and info session in it.

There are two places you can access the info file:

aa) SawfishConfig: with SawfishConfig it is not possible to access xterm-program
setting from Sawfish. Thus x-terminal-emulator is hardcoded in SawfishConfig. I might
change it to xterm for better non-Debian-compat.

(Why the funk don't those non-Debian-Distros use alternatives aswell? this is pretty useful and allows generic system calls regardless of the installed software. Well... that would be to easy and so not fragmented)

bb) Sawfish Root Menu > Help. This will use whatever xterm-program is.

b) if no browser opens that means that the default browser-program (x-www-browser) is not available, adjust aswell in SawfishConfig > Misc > External Applications.

See Screenshot for xterm-program and browser-program adjustment.
Similarily, I sat that to "conkeror". It gets respected anywhere but in the about dialog.

c) Wallpaper Setter. This is something completely different. This is not an issue of external applications, it's an issue with the widget. It's not really robust an error-tolerant. Please tell me your values for the following defcustoms (so I can test and fix the issue):

init-wallpaper (bool)
root-wallpaper (string)
wallpaper-setter (string)
wallpaper-setter-args (string)
set-wallpaper-gnome2 (bool)
set-wallpaper-xfce4 (bool)
wallpaper-display-type (symbol)[haawda@frege ext]$ sawfish-client

sawfish-client 1.11.

Enter `,help' to list commands.
client > init-wallpaper
client > root-wallpaper
client > wallpaper-setter
client > wallpaper-setter-args
client > set-wallpaper-gnome2
client > set-wallpaper-xfce4
client > wallpaper-display-type

d) use the GitHub bug tracker over at

Will do in future requests, thanks.

Best Regards Stefan

P.S. will try your new git commits soon
