PAM not auto-starting on an iPod

Submitted by Gospel on March 31, 2007 - 10:29pm

I ordered a 4GB SanDisk Cruiser with U3 on Friday morning. Last night, Last night I thought, "Da! I have an iPod!" There is 14GB free on my 60GB iPod Photo. I've installed the suite and it very works and and Firefox starts up faster.

The only thing is that PAM doesn't auto-start like it does on my 128MB Dell thumb drive. On the Dell TD, I only have Firefox, PuTTY, PortableBacup, and PAM. Is there a way I can get PAM to auto-start when the iPod is plugged in?

Customizable PortableApps Menu?

Submitted by Spdlmt150 on March 31, 2007 - 3:54pm

First, I would like to say that the PortableApps Suite is a beautiful piece of work. I never imagined I would be carrying the majority of what I use on my keychain. The main problem I do have with it is that after getting all of my apps on the usb stick, I have quite a menu to scroll through to launch them. For the sake of simplicity I have switched to using PStart due to the ability to group shortcuts in a similar layout to the normal Windows start menu.

@ John, Menu theme forum?

Could we have a menu theme forum?

It seems to be a quite popular topic right now. Some of the threads are getting quite long. It might be easier if Theme's or Menu Customization was in it's own forum. Does Drupal support sub forums?

Support Forums-
-PortableApps Menu

Or it might even go into the development as its own forum. Might help promote also if it was easier to find things. Search theme and you will get 17 pages of results.

PortableAppsMenu Coloring

Submitted by wsm23 on March 29, 2007 - 4:18pm


Is it OK to recode the menu so that the "YOUR DIGITAL LIFE, ANYWHERE" tag is in a different color?

I want to offer it with my treklike theme. The pink works great on the red, just not on blue or really any other color. I don't know how to change the source code yet, but I am trying to learn. I have downloaded TurboExplorer and am going to take a shot at it. Maybe one of the really nice developers could even give me a hand.

PortableApps in french!

Submitted by jlaangry on March 29, 2007 - 1:51pm

Hi everyone!

I built a fully working version of PortableApps menu translated to french! (without using test.locale)
Does it interests anyone? I think I may start a new SourceForge projets... Am I wrong? Or are you interested in my translation?

Improvement List

Submitted by RedCider on March 28, 2007 - 5:48pm

I use PAM now for a few months and it's simply great. As a lot of people I have some suggestions, of which a few have already been mentioned a lot of times.

  • Disable Transparency
  • Stick Apps to the top of the list (like in windows xp start menu)
  • Group Apps
  • Favorites (Apps that should be launched when portable apps starts - could be an icon in the right list)
  • Rename Apps
  • autoupdate of PAM
  • Right Klick on tray symbol shows menu with "start of favorites", "hide/show","close"
