I am very happy to report that I'm using CorelDRAW8 with Puppy Precise Linux all by itself and most features work reliably. Gary

Upload here.

As for my previous post, what file extension are your images and how have you been exporting them for Linux to use?

Maybe it's gotta happen like this?

Oh, I get it now. Simple JPG export images. Do you mean interlace and quality? There are but simple export considerations that I've never paid too much attention. Maybe I'm wrong? Gary

72 dots per inch, anti-aligzing. I think 72 dpi must be the issue.

Will followup later.

Thank you. 72 dpi has to be the problem. My files are too large??? Will try what's on the suggested page.

Windows takes a larger size file and fits to desktop screen is my best guess. Will update this post later.

Yes, I changed the file names so there are no spaces and is showing as expected.

The previous images of a different try did not work so well fuzzy (???).

Will report back and all I can say is thanks.

I'm onto why my first attempt at this wallpaper effort did not work. My memory for the issue was not clear but here are the results.

From CorelDRAW8 at 300dpi (export for printing and and resize for different purposes) I resized at 25 percent to fit my screen resolution size. Very interesting results as it turns out the BMP file performs best for my own Puppy Precise wallpaper.

Using old-fashioned CRT monitor but don't think this is an issue in this situation:

Puppy Wallpaper Setter v.1.2 -- Export JPG at 25% reduction -- "Scale to Fit" gives over sized image for the screen to be able to show all of the file. "Centre" cuts off the image on the top and bottom horizontal but center.

It is the BMP export at 25% that does work excluding the original JPG export, JPG at 25% and PNG at 25%.

I'm happy to have the BMP at 25% export working and makes my Puppy a personal operating system.

Thanks for the help all. Could be my PC, graphics card or ??? for the other file formats not showing best. Who really knows?

Happy, happy, happy . . .

Gary

Satisfactory's good to hear. About file naming..

http://www.thesitewizard.com/webdesign/create-good-filenames.shtml

As for re-naming, there might be something you can use here.

Pup should have a batch renamer somewhere in your menu.
