Subject description: Difference between the current Slimjet and Iron version
 

Dear Slimjet/Iron/Chrome users,

Do you see any difference between the current Slimjet and Iron browsers in your own puplet?

It seems that in Slimjet (and Chrome) the gpu is not recognized and cannot be corrected in the browser settings.

See the attached screenshots and http://madebyevan.com/webgl-water/

Thanks in advance.

Have fun!

Regards,

gjuhasz

hi gjuhasz,

yes i've noticed the newest chromium based browsers no longer have hardware acceleration enabled . also you don't seem to be able to enable it in its settings Sad . Version 73 has hardware acceleration working

@ gjuhasz/philb666:-

Have a look at this thread of mine from a while back:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=114441

The flags might say they're 'switchable' (and act as if they are!).....but for Linux, at least, they've been disabled internally to the browser process. For us, they don't actually DO anything..... Rolling Eyes

The Chromium Project is promoted as a separate entity from Google.....but everybody knows it's simply Google's browser R & D department.



We're kinda stuck with that one, I'm afraid.....


Mike. Wink

all chrome based browser now seem broken in bionicpup64.
opera
chrome
chromium
vivaldi
all of them now have absolutely zero hardware acceleration., and suffer from really bad screen tearing, even on high end systems.

version 73 of chromium, chrome and all the others based on that version did have hardware acceleration to some degree, and could stream 4k youtube at 60fps smoothly. Now they can't even stream 480p without tearing, even with an nvidia 1050ti. it seems all processing is now done with the cpu Sad

if any of you have links for older versions of vivaldi, opera, chrome, (i have chromium) from about the time bionicpup was released. please post them here.

I have vivaldi-2.3.1440.61 which you can try.
Also the older vivaldi-1.9.818.50 which was tail end of GTK2 for older pups for anyone interested.

Google turned off GPU acceleration in their browser due to bad linux GPU drivers (in their opinion). I've read somewhere that there are versions for Ubuntu compiled with GPU accelerations:

For Ubuntu based Puppies try this:
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:saiarcot895/chromium-beta
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
