451  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: which Linux version for my laptop on: October 26, 2008, 05:05:51 AM
davidtheo: I agree with most of the others: go with Ubuntu.

An alternative to burning and running liveCDs is to do some virtual installs using virtualbox ( http://www.virtualbox.org/ ) or some similar tool.

Also, if you already have XP/Vista on your laptop then consider doing a dual boot installation. (You can test that in virtualbox too.)

There are already some good suggestions but here's yet another alternative in the shape of an autohotkey script:
[copy or print]
F3::
F4::
clipboard =
sendinput ^c
ClipWait, 2
if A_ThisHotkey = F3
 x := RegExReplace(clipboard,"m)^>","")
else
 x := RegExReplace(clipboard,"m)^",">")
clipboard = %x%
sendinput ^v
return
453  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: The killer feature request (maybe impossible to do on windows) on: October 13, 2008, 06:00:56 PM
To move forward with this idea, maybe we should brainstorm concerning what features any 3rd party tool should have to help achieve what isd requests. Here are some suggestions:

(1) very small and quick to launch
(2) free
(3) supports the relevant sort of "virtual folders" or groupings
(4) can be controlled from FARR or from a FARR-plugin
(5) the groupings can be saved in some way (two versions: save a list of paths to the files OR save the exact search that was used to find them in FARR. The latter would be some sort of FARR search bookmarks.)

I'm imagining a file browser window that behaves sort of like Windows Explorer's search result window: it lists a number of files from various places on the harddisk(s) as if they were all in one folder, it allows you to operate on the files (move, copy, execute...), it allows several different views (thumbnails, as a list, detailed view...).

I can think of two types of candidates for this:
1. some standalone file manager ( http://en.wikipedia.org/w...mparison_of_file_managers ). A problem is that most are very feature rich all purpose file managers, where we really need something as minimalistic as possible (but still with support for grouping).
2. a dedicated FARR plugin that has the sought after features. Maybe made in autohotkey or some other language. This in turn would probably depend on there already existing some modules in these languages that can be used to achieve the virtual folder/grouping feature.

This thread from 2006 discusses just this kind of thing (though not in relation to FARR): http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=6419.0

Ok, so no major changes compared to the previous versions then... I presently don't have a working webcam to test the CamSpace beta on but I'll try to get one soon.

456  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / SavePathCapsMclick: caps+mclick on Explorer win to use it as "Save As" path on: October 10, 2008, 07:23:50 PM
SavePathCapsMclick  -- v081011 -- http://nod5.dcmembers.com/savepathcapsmclick.html

Use: hold caps and Mclick (middle mouse click) on a window (focused or non-focused)
If (1) it was an explorer window and (2) a "save as" window exists,
then the explorer window path is added to the save as window input box.
Else the clicked window is minimized.


I hope someone more than me has use for this smiley
All feedback is appreciated.

I also use GreatNews. But I'm more and more leaning towards leaving it. It has not been updated in a long time and development seem to have halted. It is genuinly sad to see since GreatNews was such a promising program. I've used FeedDemon before so might very well be going back to it again. That or the upcoming RSSOwl 2.0 ( http://www.rssowl.org/ )

One more feature note: Both FinePrint and priPrinter allow removing graphics. But neither allows removing graphics from individual pages. I hoped priPrinter would be able to do that since it already allows custom cropping for individual pages. I hope they add it. Or even better: add a way for users to cover any choosen part of a page by drawing a white rectangular box on top of it.
461  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: FinePrint vs. priPrinter on: October 03, 2008, 10:25:27 AM
Here's another quirk with priPrinter (1.5 beta): in the left column it displays thumbnails of all pages in each printjob. Now, if I print job1 and, without closing the preview window, print job2, then the two jobs are both displayed in that column. If I then click the "previous arrow" at the bottom of the column then priPrinter jumps to the previous printjob. If I then click the "next arrow" I go back to the current printjob. Only now they are separated so that I first see job2 and have to click again to see (only) job1. That's confusing. What's more confusing, the next/previous buttons loop around so pressing "next" while displaying the most recent printjob jumps to the oldest previous printjob.
462  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: FinePrint vs. priPrinter on: October 03, 2008, 03:38:30 AM
Fedorov, which version are you using? The 1.5 beta starts with the same window size it had last time it was closed on my computer. Is that enough? Or do you request that even if the window was de-maximized last time it was open it should still open maximized next time?

Is there no way to force preview window to display automatically immediately after printing to priPrinter?!
I have this checkbox ticked but it does not seem to make a difference:

466  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: FinePrint vs. priPrinter on: October 01, 2008, 05:53:18 PM
I'm testing priPrinter right now. It is excellent so far! Nice find zridling Thmbsup Great that FinePrint finally gets a worthy competitor!

Advantages compared to Fineprint
- allows printing 3 pages to a sheet
(3 maximum cropped pages * doublesided = 6 pages per paper sheet = still readable in most cases and enormously paper-saving)
- allow customized cropping for each page

Disadvantages compared to Fineprint:
- lacks a range of quickly choosen and increasingly more aggressive autocrop modes (fineprints has "margins: none, small, medium, large, original"). A maximum crop mode is especially important to have.
- can't insert pagenumber on each page (not just on each sheet)
467  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: batch create image contact sheet from videofiles? on: October 01, 2008, 04:58:34 PM
hi freestyler. Yeah I've noticed that problem some time. The script already has such a delay - it tries to click "save" up to 6 times (with 0,5 seconds wait inbetween each). So the problem is something else but I haven't pinpointed what it is.

I haven't had time to test Video Thumbnails Maker (mentioned above; http://www.suu-design.com/projects.html ) but it looks good and is freeware:

If anyone does some testing with it, do post feedback here.

hi isd!
This sounds like a neat feature Thmbsup It might be possible to do via a plugin. After the  " myimages\ TAB moon" search, once you've gotten the list of results, you would press a hotkey (or select a context menu command or something like that) and then a FARR plugin starts, the plugin then displays all and only image files from the results as clickable thumbnails in a html view mode page (similar to the AlbumDisplayer plugin perhaps). Would that be similar to what you had in mind? Clicking an thumbnail could perhaps then make FARR open the fullsize in the default browser. The hard part would be to write the plugin of course cheesy I don't have time to make an attempt at the moment but maybe someone else does. (the code in the AlbumDisplayer files can of course be reused in any way if that would be to some help)
470  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Another FARR similar app - Executor on: August 23, 2008, 02:02:16 PM
(Maybe the below should be in  a separate thread, but these things was discussed here so...)

Some small ideas on speeding up alias set up in FARR for users (I'm just brainstorming, not sure if all of them would work well together):

1. when opening options, let lists > aliases > myaliases.alias have focus
2. on the lists > aliases page, add a big button named "new alias" (or "make new alias")
3. also add that button to the options root view (the one which now is a large grey area with the text "choose one of the sub-pages...")
4. hide the text "test regular expression here:" and "regex parsed fields:" and their related input boxes until the user actually enters something into the "regular expression pattern" box. That would make the new alias screen less complex for a beginner (who probably will start out making non-regex aliases)
5. above the big bottom Result(s) input box, maybe add a dropdown that contains some common commands and also keeps a list of the special modifier the user has created. Selecting a command/modifier would insert it at the cursor position in the big box.
6. make the word "help" in "see help for more info" a link that opens the help file (the part of it describing alias creation).
7. maybe decrease the width of the "group alias name" box (smaller boxes makes the interface look less cluttered I think.
8. maybe make "Example" into a link that for each click cycles to another example that illustrates different types of result(s) commands.

That sounds good!  Thmbsup
472  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / alias thas searches special folder AND returns folder link as match no 1? on: August 23, 2008, 08:38:00 AM
I use this alias:
1000>>>mp3>->mp3 $$1 | dosearch +alb1_modifier +mp3_modifier $$1>+>^(?:mp|mp3) (\w.*)$

As you can see, the searchphrase mp3 something triggers a search in only the harddrive folders tied to the two modifiers (set in "Search Folder" options).

I want an alias that does just that AND also always return a link to one or more special folders (choosen by me) as the first match(es).

Example:

search: "mp3 beatles"

should return:
1. folder1
2. folder2
3. 01 beatles - I saw her standing.mp3
...

I think that kind of behaviour - being able to set one or more privileged matches that trumps whatever matching criteria the rest of the alias contains - could be useful in many other cases also.

Is it possible already without making a special plugin? If so, how?

Nah, I had used the DDEML function before so I really only needed to get the right DDE syntax for adding tracks. Once I had that then I spent more time writing the description for the script and packing it than writing the script itself actually Grin Anyway, let me know if you find any bugs.

Lanux128, try AHK_xmplay_input_to_playlist_DDEML   v080821

;-----------------------------------
; autohotkey script for silently adding to Xmplay playlist through DDE
;  takes file(s)/folder(s)/playlist(s) as input parameter
; - drop input on AHK_xmplay_input_to_playlist_DDEML.exe or
; - pass input as quote enclosed, space separated command line parameters
;  (use no end slash for folders!)
;   example: C:\AHK_xmplay_input_to_playlist_DDEML.exe "C:\musicfolder" "C:\music2\song.mp3"
;
; made by nod5 , version 080821
; using DDEML by sean, http://www.autohotkey.com/forum/topic19169.html
;-----------------------------------

The attached zip includes:
68b207b3d1dca7511752b8fd8a2d3cac *AHK_xmplay_input_to_playlist_DDEML.ahk
390dc531993efe6af2ac7d271f2d8712 *AHK_xmplay_input_to_playlist_DDEML.exe

note: to add all input files one by one to Xmplay playlist through DDE took noticeably long time. To speed things up I let the script first make a temporary .pls playlist file containing all input files, then add the .pls to Xmplay though DDE, then delete the .pls. Xmplay automatically adds all files from the .pls.

note2: there might be some upper limit to the number of files or total length of the command line string that can be passed to the script, though I haven't looked into that (it is not built in by me but might be due to some limit in autohotkey or windows)
475  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Hotkeys & FarrQuickView on: August 20, 2008, 02:16:10 PM
@nitrix-ud: But after my proposed change those wanting a hotkey to start FARR and then operate on what is already on the clipboard can still just set "no clipboard copy" and then put %cliptext% something in the Search Edit Box, right? I haven't actually tried that but I assume that FARR reads whatever is on the clipboard only when it executes something with the %cliptext% variable in it. If I am right about that, then what is the point with keeping the current behaviour as an option?  tellme
