I've just installed this and I'm already loving it. I'm going to put a post up on my blog (ArsGeek) to let more folks know about it.
Q: Bonager's tray does not use my system tray colour, why? [or, Bonager's tray is not transparent, why?]
A: This is because the tray is not using the theme's default colour. Bonager does change its tray background colour, but only to the theme's default background colour. This is a limitation that has nothing to do with Bonager and therefore cannot be changed. One workaround would be to switch the tray colour back to theme default and change the theme default colour to the colour wanted.
Here are the partitions that have fsck (the scan that happens at boot) enabled:
Notice a trend in those partitions? They all are reiserfs. Bonager only supports ext3. Why only ext3? Because the tool that shows statistics about mounts that is used by Bonager only supports ext*.Code:# /dev/sda5 UUID=0fcc5ebf-c157-4f97-8119-38aa083d693e / reiserfs defaults 0 1 # /dev/sda6 UUID=023e1598-cc94-4ddd-bf13-88ff2fcbfcb7 /home reiserfs defaults 0 2 # /dev/sdc1 UUID=2f3562e4-a63f-4dc0-b6e7-7664567f697d /media/sdc1 reiserfs defaults 0 2
Is it possible to add reiserfs support to Bonager? Yes, unless there is no reiserfs stat tool. Am I willing to add reiserfs support? It is definitely not on my to-do list, but I can look into it. The problem is that I do not have a reiserfs partition or the reiserfs stat program to test with.
I will add a FAQ entry about this. Thank you for your contribution.
One minor criticism:
^^ The icon isn't transparent, and looks disgusting should it be used on a non-default/transparent panel. This alone will stop me using Bonager.
Also, an option to quickly check the amount of boots remaining without having the application running in a terminal would be appreciated, is this possible?
Thank you for your feedback.
