PostPosted: Wed 28 Mar 2012, 18:07    Post subject: A4paper  

Thanks to charlie's information, I propose a profile file /etc/rc.d/a4paper.
Code:
#31dec10 shinobar: ghostscript paper size
case "${LANG:2:3}" in
_US|_CA|_MX) :;;
*) export GS_OPTIONS="-sPAPERSIZE=a4";;
esac

(Attached a pet for your convenience. You need to reboot PC, or go down to the console and type 'exit' then 'xwin'.)
Then the ps2pdf will create proper size of pdf without options. Of course depends on your locale.
a4paper-20101231.pet

Hi Pemasu,
-->Thanks for the a4 postc-script viewer pet ! Works like a charm !
Just to mention that there is a mistake in my previous post - please pardon me Embarassed
Checking the ps2pdf man page, the ps2pdf options is -sPAPERSIZE=a4 instead of -sPAPERSIZE#4.
The pet comes with #4.
-->Thanks also to shinobar for his a4-paper pet !
Charlie

Subject description: Projet Management Gnome Planner: Preview unopperating
 

Hi,
launching /Menu/Calculate/Project Management - Gnome Planner: clicking on Preview returns the following comment in terminal:
Code:
# planner
wbs
name
start
finish
work
duration
slack
cost
assigned_to
complete
Gtk-Message: (for origin information, set GTK_DEBUG): failed to retrieve property `GtkTreeView::odd-row-color' of type `GdkColor' from rc file value "((GString*) 0x821fbc0)" of type `GString'

<----HERE CLICKING ON PREVIEW --->

** (evince:23567): WARNING **: Error launching previewer: Failed to execute child process "evince-previewer" (No such file or directory)

1. Something missing to evince ?
2. Gtk-Message: worth worrying about it?

Charlie

charlie6. You get evince-previewer error out and preview working by creating symlink from /usr/bin/evince to /usr/bin/evince-previewer.
I have added this for next version.
About those gtk errors. I dont know about them. Someone knowledge with gtk could tell more....

PostPosted: Fri 30 Mar 2012, 10:34    Post subject: USB Logitech Receiver not recognized  

My usb Logitech receiver for the mouse occasionally is not recognized. It works fine after removing and reinstalling the receiver. Could this be a timing problem? If so, where should a delay be placed?

Otherwise, 5.X.3.2.11 is working great on three computers. The problem only occurs on my main desktop computer.

Thank you for experimenting with the latest kernels and other software, and for providing your experiences to the other developers which helps improve all distributions.

Great, Very Happy
Jim

About logitehc usb receiver. It is new feature. It is possible that the support will be better with kernel updates. The usb plugin timing is beyound my knowledge. It is my hunch only that the usb receiver kernel module just doesnt work yet 100 % efficiently. I still would like to stick with this kernel for awhile. When the 3.3 kernel matures I will compile it, but not yet.

report-video is somewhat broken...at least until you run xorgwizard and probe - choose again your needed driver. Then report-video works more reliably.

I dont much trust report-video reports.
Did "Reprot-video" get replaced with TaZoC's "report-video-glx"? Seems he addressed some key items (I think). I also remember that Barry added it to WOOF....I think.

Does this addressed reflecting accurate status?

Here to help

Nah. straight to X ....in console....report-video ---> "is" ....in console report-video-glx ---> "is"
xorgwizard ....back to X....report-video ---> "intel".....in console report-video-glx ---> "intel"
Checking.....report-video-glx is symlink to report-video.

Hmm...slacko...same symlink...racy ....just report-video which launches report-video-glx
Dpup and Slacko has version 0.6.1 and Racy...which I tested had version 0.6.
Now I remember that I picked up report-video from slacko after 01micko posted about his fix for driver detection. But it is not enough in Dpup.

Conclusion. Without using xorgwizard report-video is broken.

should be: report-video-glx is symlink to report-video (I know, it's what you mean, not what you write) Smile

Hi,
Here tried install of sylpheed_portable-3.1.3-cryptofs0.6.0-bogofilter1.2.2-dpup.pet from exprimo pets repo.
Install dialog box told OK.
But I could not type a password in the last dialog box asking for it: not possible to enter any character in the fields.

Fresh frugal install of 5.X.3.2.11 on an old P4 test box. All basics working and correct on initial boot. Had that infamous "pink box" ....... took care of that quickly. Smile Looks good.

Hi Pesamu,

I have a very simple question: can you explain in a few lines wat exprimo is ? I read in the macpup thread that it has e17. From the kernell version I understand it is for newer PC's only. Is there a target audience ?

Maybe you can write a few lines in post 1 of this thread ?

Regards,

Harm
