Habit. Usually if I'm doing something as root, it's more than one command. Using gainroot I don't have to remember to typo sudo every time

  • Changing maximum number of applets in statusbar
  • Locking home applets
  • Working application menu while controlling tablet remotely via VNC or with external mouse
  • Possibility to override hildon-desktop in handling notifications (may be useful for telescope in future)

I can not upload this build into extras-devel, because this will make all tablets to upgrade.

I have uploaded the build here: http://skriblovsky.net/maemo/hildon-desktop/
There are also all sources and diff from pristine tarball.

If you want to try it out, you need to install these debs:Don't forget to reboot after installation
Installation of this packages can lead to conflict with osso-software-version-rxXX package. Generally, it is safe to remove osso-software-version-rxXX.

You can also install my applet-count package from extras-devel. This is Control Panel plugin for changing number of statusbar applets.

If you are brave enough to install this, please post here your results!

The changes seems amazing - especially the first two.
If they become stable I'd love to see them included in a Diablo5 release !

These debs must be installed from command line as root, like this:
Code:
dpkg -i libhildondesktop0_2.0.18-1fix1mtr_armel.deb libhildonwm0_2.0.18-1fix1mtr_armel.deb hildon-desktop_2.0.18-1fix1mtr_armel.deb
I don't think that graphical Application Manager will be so kind to install them

Kroll, from the logs you have sent it seems that you typed paths to debs incorrectly

silvermountain, the more beta testers we have, the faster it will become stable


I forgot to mention very important thing: in order to get more applets in statusbar you will need to tweak you theme config file too (theme.xml). Of course, i can help with this if you will give me the name of your favorite theme.

Neat. I like the draglock, and extra applets in the status bar. Though I haven't figured out how many I like. Thanks Mitrandir!

Does anybody know how to change Skype chat text color? It use a config which is looks like themename/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and there is a line which set this color to DefaultTextColor. But there is no line which set this DefaultTextColor (I mean something like "DefaultTextColor = "#ffffff"")
This problem is the same as problem with built-in chat app, but in last one we can change color in settings but in skype we can't.

10/19/2010:
Diablo 5 v.0.8

* Fixed bug with virtual keyboard's menu (copy/paste/language)
* Default task switcher replaces with Telescope
* Diablo5 Wallpaper added
* CSS fix for Tear
* Window borders removed. Apps now working at full screen
* Some icons were improved
* More than 7 statusbar applets supported and desktop applets drag lock (If you already have installed patched hildon-desktop)


If you need patched hildon-desktop you need to install these debs BEFORE theme:
Use
Code:
dpkg -i libhildondesktop0_2.0.18-1fix1mtr_armel.deb libhildonwm0_2.0.18-1fix1mtr_armel.deb hildon-desktop_2.0.18-1fix1mtr_armel.deb
Don't forget to reboot after installation
Installation of this packages can lead to conflict with osso-software-version-rxXX package. Generally, it is safe to remove osso-software-version-rxXX.

You can also install applet-count package from extras-devel. This is Control Panel plugin for changing number of statusbar applets.



Bug was fixed. v0.8.1
