Hello fellow Puppy Users,
As many will know Zigbert has created a great app for Puppy 4 and greater, standard in Puppy 4.2 and beyond, (reported to work in Puppy 3). Pwidgets. It is a widget manager for Puppy using Conky as the engine, with xonclock . See [[http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=35601| Pwidgets thread]] on the forum.
Now Pwidgets includes many configurable stock standard widgets but you can also add plugins.
Trio has started a thread on the forum for uploading and downloading Pwidgets plugins. See [[http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=38628|Pwidgets - plugins and widget storage]]
We will be adding widget plugins here from time to time so if you want to keep up to date with new widgets that is the place!
There is also a Pwidgets "Howto" which we maintain, [[http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=36675|"HOWTO change settings in Pwidgets"]]. We will attempt to keep this up to date, however anyone can post there, their own tips and tricks to do with Pwidgets
