Hello fellow Puppy Users,
As many will know Zigbert has created a great app for Puppy 4 and greater, standard in Puppy 4.2, works well in Puppy 4.3 (reported to work in Puppy 3). Pwidgets. It is a widget manager for Puppy using Conky as the engine, with xonclock . See 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 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, "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
Puppylvr has started a thread for TV channels here
01micko has started a thread for posting artwork for Pwidgets, including clockskins and sidebars, dejan555 has added many beautiful clockskins to that thread. here
