Well I bought a refurb Acer monitor.
I plugged it in and set 1920x1080 through xorgwizard and it worked right off.
Rebooted a few times and no problems.
Rebooted into Windows 7 to let it set up the new monitor and then back to Saluki and the monitor is out of its 1920x1080 resolution, LOL
Finally got it back by selecting the I know the frequency range of the monitor. I really dont know the range but used the range from the Samsung 45-70 and 50-75.

Turned the computer off overnight and in the morning it no longer is in the right resolution.
This time the freq range fix does not work, so I finally unload the Nvidia driver and reboot and then reload the Nvidia driver.
Reset the freq. range and all is back to normal.

This really is puzzling to me, and since no one has replied I guess its just me having this issue.

Psuedo-transparent terminal? I get the slider bar and I can get varying shades of grey, but I can't get the transparent terminal to go. Any ideas? Not using transparency overall and don't really want to...


And really lovin' this version, Jemimah!

**Note*: no transparency with mrxvt either (I like one that forum member gecko did 'back in the day' and it installed and runs great, just a black background though when it should be transparent).


Something in the xfce/puppy combo configurgation that eliminates psuedo-transparancy?

@steve_s

Did you switch on the composite manager? Control Panel->Xfwm Window Manager Tweaks->Compositor->Enable display compositing.

That's real transparency and it's fantastic. Smile

Hi. I tried Saluki 022 last night and for the most part was impressed with it but I was unable to get Flash to work - and I tried several different Flash files. Has anyone else had the same problem, and if so, how did they solve it?

(Apologies in advance for not searching through 225 pages of this thread for an answer.)

Thanks battleshooter. I did and it is. i just have noticed performance issues with the compositing in the past, but haven't seen that yet with Saluki. So, it looks like we're good. Thanks!

Jemimah. When you have time, look of this link. It has ffmpeg for Saluki. Originally requested for screen capture need.

Hi Pemasu

Just wanted to say thanks for your help in all this massive thanks to WillH and Sneekylinux Saluki is now a fab screencaster and xvidcap is no longer needed, please add this .pet to the Saluki repos and I have a video on youtube showing how to use it.

Flash is not reliable. The easiest solution may be the latest chrome browser which has flash included . . .

Hi Chrome is not available for Saluki due to missing lib's and dependices might be a nice idea as its a popular browser to have someone compile this for Saluki Smile

No Chromium? Confused
The request is in. Compiler needed.

jemimah has mentioned this.

Chromium would need to be compiled on Saluki for it to work. Compiling it was way beyond my current skill level last time I tried it (I may have leveled up by now, perhaps I'll try it again at some point). AFAIK no one has ever successfully compiled it on any Puppy. Google does not make a "portable" Chrome version the way Firefox and Opera are compiled specially to work on a wide variety of distros.

Guys
I should have remembered. Embarassed
Have not used Saluki in a while - been relying on Slacko. I am hoping someone will use Saluki as a base to create a more 'Old style' or 'woof like' Puppy, then I would be able to use it. Sometimes I need familiar tools - rather than the best as used in Saluki.

As a side note I am not really (much to my surprise) missing flash in the non flash Ipad. Youtube is embracing HTML5.

I look forward to jemimahs return after her busy workload eases.
Is there another Flash solution perhaps? Smile

HTML5 seems to have as part of its specification the ability to implant data into your computer via the browser. Not sure that the privacy tools have caught up with this yet. And I'm not sure that Chromium has adequate security built in to prevent external access to our data and search info etc etc.

Thanks for the advice. I'll think about it. I've never used Chrome very much as I always found it less intuitive to use than Firefox, Opera, Seamonkey etc. but maybe it's time I gave it a proper look now.

Best,

CP .

By the way, someone else might want to look up what "FTW" means Smile
