i have not done anything with gtkrc file:)

I noticed that only themes of xfce engine in early versions 006 and 007 were without red color. Also i tested some of pixmap themes : sturdust, phacile-blue, gentle-2.0 and polished blue. They look fine but workspaces switcher applet has red color anyway.
Red also appears in some window decorations.

base[ACTIVE] seems the relevant setting.

Code:
base[ACTIVE]      = shade (0.9, @selected_bg_color) # "#a69f91" # darker deepsky


Changing it to anything that does not refer to @selected_bg_color gets rid of the red. I can fix it for installed themes - but still don't know why it renders wrong.

It looks to me like a bug in GTK.

jemimah, Saluki 08 still won't start with my maximum resolution of 1280x1024.

If I Ctrl+Del+Backspace and run Xorgwizard I can choose 1280x1024 @ 24 bit it will run at the highest resolution.

Seems like the error message is reporting incorrectly.

There's not much I can do about this. By booting straight to desktop, we pretty much let Xorg do whatever it feels like. That clearly doesn't work on all hardware, but I think most people want "straight to desktop" to be the default.

I agree straight to the desktop is best.

It might be a trap for the unwary but it's pretty easy to fix, and it only has to be done once.

This Dell monitor has always been a bit of a problem with auto to desktop but Micko's Slacko has it sorted and so does Kirks Fatdog64 so I guess it's possible.

Cheers.

If we updated xorg it might fix it. But that's a lot more effort than is reasonable and probably it would create as many new bugs as it fixes.

Jemimah, you make the decisions. It's your distro. I am not trying to persuade you to do anything. I'm just testing and providing feedback, hoping it will be useful.

Saluki is looking really good. I also like the idea of a clean desktop and let individuals choose their own icons. Similar with browsers, everybody has their own favourite. Midori is a good compromise regarding size and functionality.

Cheers

I'm running from the live dvd with a save file.
CPU frequency scaling utility only offers one option (generic).

I made a vlc-1.1.13-Saluki-i686.sfs file,after installing you need to
restart X to get a menu entry, the download link is:

Jemimah

On here with default medori-browser but... I really wanted a 'Firewall' setup before surfing... I see no option to set one up in 009 ??? Do you feel it isn't necessary or is it built into 009 automatically or are we missing a setup file or is it that I just don't know where to look for it (like on 008 - the SAVE file Embarassed )?

For the firewall, Control Panel and look under "Network".

Anyway, fresh frugal install of 009 on my main Atlon XP box. Sound and internet working and correct.,... boots to 1280x1024 ...necessary to use xorgwizard to achieve desired 1440x900 with nouveau driver.Basically working well.

Still don't like Midori but since it only takes about 30 seconds to install SeaMonkey...... Laughing

Had a brief bash at 009. Updating 008 save file breaks Frisbee for the first time. Pretty much as happened to peebee with an update to 008 as I recall. Will not hold connection through a reboot after the update and will not accept key if profile is stripped and I attempt to create a new profile. /usr/share/gvfs/remote-volume-monitors is present. Frisbee works correctly on a fresh frugal install.

flSynclient remains broken. Tapping was enabled and no vertical scrolling on first boot. Using flSynclient I was able to disable tapping but could not enable vertical scrolling on my Alps touchpad (Dell D610). Calibrate still crashes X. Deleting /root/.flSynclient got me back a pretty usable touchpad with vertical scrolling and no tapping. Default accel and speed not bad. The parameters in /root/.flSynclient look perfectly correct for scrolling to me. Editing Xorg.conf with the default laptop touchpad settings pretty much bricked it. Both touchpad and stick locked up tight. I may play with it further but for now I'm back to 008.

Theme, fonts, all panel settings, previously installed pets, all other configurations and settings came through the update correctly. CUPS, Opera also fine. Adrive layering must be ok now.

Next go at updating, I'll probably just eliminate flSynclient completely and try and puzzle out what breaks Frisbee.

Alas,

Yes, of course, for regular users.
Problem is for incomers. Could be solved by adding some text to the opening panel, with better explanation of what to do.

009: Good grief, angel does it again! We have correct resolution detection at start-up. Well done and thanks a million euros...

Just need to get coherent(!) instruction on how to install the correct FlashPlayer(s) for Midori & Opera with iPlayer - please.
