Thunor: Guestbook

Hi Thunor,
Thanks very much for your great work on gtkdialog! I wrote a backup application that requires gtkdialog (snap2 rsync-based backup utility). Your work is giving new life to all the applications, like snap2, that depend on gtkdialog.

snap2 is in Puppy (it has a development thread there), but I personally use it in Debian, even though I promote Puppy for most "normal" computer users.

gtkdialog is not in Debian Stable (Squeeze), and was recently removed from the old-stable (Lenny) repository as well. So I put together amd64 and i386 Debian packages for gtkdialog v0.8.0. I plan to keep them up to date with your "upstream" gtkdialog version.

You are welcome to link to them if you want. Information on the repository is at You can link directly to the deb files if you want.

I have installed playmusic 1.3 on Akita Linux (a puplet) but cannot get the SVG images to display in gtkdialog..

I can view the .svg in /tmp/blah with rsvg-view, but it won't show up in gtkdialog.. I am running gtkdialog4 0.8.1, re-compiled by technosaurus recently, without glade deps required...

I have also been experimenting, and I changed the default player to `vlc -I dummy`, and will try to integrate it into VLC-GTK, if you say its OK...

Sources changed:

And binaries:

Implemented key hotcut

shortcuts in the Dingoo
SELECT + START – load .p file
SELECT + L – Menu (hardware)
SELECT + A – save state
SELECT + B – load state
SELECT + X – Exit emulator

Christopher: I'm glad that you like it and thanks for the feedback :) I've got some nice ideas for new game types which I intend to include as soon as I get a chance. One of them is having different coloured pipe pieces that can be connected with their own colour for bonuses.

Just installed pipepanic yesterday after it hit the Gentoo repos. Great fun, and quite addicting. Unfortunately, it seems to be more fun than my homework. :)

Jack: It depends on how much you already know. If you don't know anything about Z80 machine code then you can learn that as the Spectrum uses the Z80, but other than the algorithms used within the programs, everything else will differ.

I'd like to program the Spectrum next so there's a possibility I'll be converting MMCoYSpectrum in the future. Both books are very very similar.

Nicely done. Will we gain much from your work if we're the Spectrum's machine code?

I've set this guestbook up as the form mail offered by my host seems to filter out the majority of my test messages. And yeah I'm not very happy about that!

I don't know anything about this guestbook host but it does what I want for the moment and we'll see how it goes :)
