Subject description: Gxine fullscreen should work better
 

I have made some very minor edits to the jwm source to make fullscreen work with gxine.

The attached pet installs a single file, jwm. It does not overwrite your existing version instead it installs it to /usr/local/bin which is earlier in the standard puppy path than the normal location of /usr/X11R7/bin. This means that in the unlikely event that it gives you problems you can uninstall it from the package manager.

It should help with gxine and flash fullscreen and produce some debugging output in /tmp/xerrs.log, there are no other modifications. You will need to restart X to load the new version.

If you wish to view the changes then it is built from revision 45 in the puppy sourceforge repository here

Please note that if you are trying to get fullscreen flash then very often you need to upgrade the version of flash that you have.

Hi HairyWill

The thing with flash is, The default works from series 4.0 +
Fullscreen youtube doesn't work with Seamoney from series 3 until 4.2
4.2 I compiled and works fine with the default flash, FirePup always used the default puppy flash and worked fine with youtube.
Gxine had a problem with JWM, but if you used Icewm plus Gxine, full screen worked.
The Problem is JWM as you said you patched it, great. but if you upgrade the default flash to the latest from adobe, your looking for troubles, The latest flash, was compiled with the latest GlibC plus other things and causes issues with puppy. If you want to upgrade your flash to series 10
then install this flash
http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/ttuuxxx/programs/internet/flash-10.0.15.pet

it was compiled as i386 and uses a older glibc, That works stable with puppy.
hope that helps
ttuuxxx

Hmmm .....

I've been using gxine viewing full screen videos all this while on jwm ... If you meant immediately ctrl-f for full screen mode then no that doesn't work ... If you maximize gxine then ctrl-f then we get full screen videos ...

apologies,
I had this working when testing. But it doesn't work for me now. It will be a few days before I can look at this again. I will update the pet when I get it working.

What a shame.The JWM fix doesn't work at all Sad

- Fullscreen YouTube videos with SeaMonkey and the latest Flash 10 are still not possible with this fix.
As with the original JWM,you get true fullscreen video for only 200 milliseconds. Then the browser returns to windowed mode immediately.

- (The patched) gXine doesn't go fullscreen on 'Ctrl+F'. It still requires manual maximizing.
This isn't really a problem,but the ugly part starts after you exit from this so-called 'fullscreen hack'. The window size / position doesn't return to the previous state and a good part of the transport bar gets chopped off.

OK I've replaced the pet in the first post with a new version. It is still built from revision 45 I can only presume that I inadvertently put the wrong binary in the last pet.

What works for me:
In a clean puppy 4.1.2 the default gxine can switch to fullscreen without maximising first.
I can get fullscreen bbc iplayer currently using flash 10.0.15.3 though the jwm tray is ontop of the flash.

I have also tested in 4.2 alpha4 replacing the patched gxine with gxine-0.5.11-2 from ibiblio once again fullscreen switching works without maximising first.

It would be really nice if you,Joe Wing or anyone else working on the project could expand JWM to have flat taskbar buttons,a rounded version of the taskbar and (Windows-like) horizontal gradients.

Good job!

It works now,albeit only partially:

- When viewing flash videos with SeaMonkey,the taskbar is still visible.

- When exiting from fullscreen,the gxine window stays maximized (it doesn't restore to its original size). Same problem with the original and the patched version of gxine.

Even though it's still buggy, it's a big improvement over the non-fixed version. At least now I can watch fullscreen YouTube videos with the taskbar set to 'auto-hide' Smile

Will,
I understand that you don't want to take over the JWM project! I guess you'll be passing your fixes onto Joe Wing, as he is still working on JWM, albiet slowly.

I have one request, but tackle it only if you want to. If I choose flat colors, JWM still has a 3D shading effect in the tray and also the menu:

see attached picture.

Notice the 3D shadow effect on raised and sunken buttons, in highlighted menu entry, even around the border of the submenu.

As I have got a flat theme for the desktop and GTK, I would like JWM also to have the option of totally flat, just a one or two pixel border.

If I recall rightly, early versions of JWM were flat.

panzerpuppy,
How did you do that?
But, I see in your snapshot that the buttons still have the 3D shading.

...oh, yes, I'm a bit slow sometimes. You edited my image.

Flat, yes, but I still want a border.
