I'm not sure with Seamonkey, but Firefox uses F11 (which toggles mode) to maximize the window size (task bars and tabs are pushed off-screen).

BTW, I though Youtube had an icon in the corner of the video to switch modes.

Hi

Thanks for replies. The F11 work ok both in Seamonkey and in Firefox.
But the screen will not change to full by clicking on the place shown on the picture. By doing that there comes a little window in the upper left corner of the screen which disappears immediately and I am back to
the first situation. This is Puppy 421. - Funny thing is when I download from Youtube and watch afterwards I can watch in full screen. I have Puppy 431 on an USB stick and when I use that on another computer this problem is not existing. - Guess mayby I have too little ram on this old Compaq - 256MB and the video is onboard. I will try to find some more ram in my junkbox.

4.2.1 either has different flashplayer and it has a different seamonkey
than 4.3.1.. Increasing ram doesn't help.

When you download and play, it is not using flash, and only uses
less than 1/2 as much cpu.

Hi rjbrewer

Thank You for reply. You are quite right. I found a 1Gb ram block which I inserted but that did not fix the problem. Guess I have to find a burner drive and go on with 431 instead.

If you miss having the pwidgets that 4.2.1 has when you install 4.3.1,
you can find them here.

It's the JWM bug. Puppy421 is using an older JWM which borks flash fullscreen. Puppy431 is using a more recent JWM that works with flash 10 fullscreen. I've sent technosaurus (and technosaurus have already advised BarryK) a patch to handle flash 9 fullscreen in latest JWM.

In puppy421, a working solution would be to switch to icewm or if you want JWM, copy over JWM from puppy431 to puppy421. In puppy431, you must use flash 10 to get fullscreen youtube video.

I'm using 4.3.1 kernel 2.6.25.16.
It wasn't necessary to upgrade flash to get fullscreen.

Hello

I found this thread searching about almost this very issue and it confirms it's what I thought from other reading.

Patriot says

I have a copy of Zigbert's "Stardust" Puppy based on 4.3.1 with the 2.6.30.5 kernel and would like to update a standard 4.1.1 install that works very well on the box it's used on.

Now for the idiot bit Confused Which files do I need to copy and from where on the 4.3? -- this has JWM V.457 according to
Code:
jwm -v
and where do I put them on the 4.1 to replace it's JWM 2.0.1?

Sorry to sound thick but I'm still struggling with Linux system structure although I like the idea.

Thanks again
Will

I have 4.1.2 and 4.3.1 installed.
I use Pfind to search for the necessary files.
On 4.1.2 the biggest file; jwm 201 was at /usr/x11r7/bin. I trashed it.
On 4.3.1 the big file; jwm 457 was at /usr/bin. I copied it to the previous jwm spot on 4.1.2.

I use full installs; when something is trashed-deleted, it's really gone.
Don't think it works that way with frugal.

Thanks to rjbrewer.

It worked for me just as you said. I found the file "jwm" on my 4.3 install and copied it to a USB stick then started up my 4.1 machine and found "jwm" on that, both where you said they'd be, renamed the old "jwm" so I could put things back easily and copied the newer one from the USB to the same place. Restarted X server from the menu and JWM version is now reported as 457 and full screen flash vids now play fine. BTW I did need Flash V.10 for full screen but I alredy had a pet for that found when I was looking into this before.

Thanks again for rjbrewer for sorting me out.

While we are discussing Seamonkey and Flash - quick question, please, as it impacts the stability of YouTube full screen?

Is it OK to run an update to Flash from the ADOBE site?

I am running the stock Wary 030 and may be able to solve a problem on a laptop here by upgrading to:
Linux Mozilla, Firefox, SeaMonkey 10.1.53.64

Should I? Or do I risk making a mess of things because Seamonkey under Puppy is set up a little differently than under other distros?

Just wanted to ask before I make a mess of things ... again!

I received a Private note to say that Flash is a single file and won't break things.

Here's the steps:

Download the tar.gz

Extract the libflashplayer.so

Go to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

MOVE the existing libflashplayer.so to another folder (do not try to rename it - something like old-libflashplayer.so because Seamonkey will load both the old and the new.)

COPY the new libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

Reboot.

That's it!

It fixed the problem on syfy.com

Thanks again to rjbrewer.

I have made a dotpet of rjbrewster's solution above.

I have taken the jwm file for 431 and made a dotpet with it so that it installs to the correct place in 412. I have tested it on a HD install of 412 and works with Seamonkey and Opera. I think is should also work with Firefox.

puppy412-flash-fullscreen-fix.pet can also be downloaded from http://www.412collection.co.uk/internet.html
