Hey guyses and goils,

I made a new dsl extension and emailed it to, but then I figured that maybe I should get a few people to test it out and look over it for me (since it is my first .dsl).  The extension is a package called < Pogo >.  It is "a speedy, highly extensible, skinnable, and user-configurable program launcher and application front-end for X11."  

I would be really greatful if a couple of you could test it out and look it over for me.  The extension is located at:

< pogo-3.0.dsl >

Thanks guyses and goils,

There's no menu item to start it.

[exec] (Pogo) {pogo}

It looks interesting, although it runs rather slow for me.

There should be a pogo 800x600 and pogo 1024x768 under the mydsl menu.  I put them in /var/tmp/  Is this not the standard place?

Change your / dir and menu files to dsl.staff permissions and you'll be good. Those darn permissions will get you every time!!  :D

Re-up'd with (hopefully) correct permissions.

Haven't tried it yet, but there's one thing that might be a cause for concern.  Your Imlib file is a symlink to /KNOPPIX/usr/lib/  I can't say for sure, but it seems like it might cause trouble for people running a harddrive install.  It might be better to have the symlink point to /usr/lib/ instead.  That's a link to a link in liveCD/frugal, but it will work the same.

Lots of details to putting a good extension together !

mikshaw, clivesay, and SU are well versed in the 'art' ..

Follow their lead ..
