Another small glitch, taking a screenshot now adds date and time, this is not up-loadable to the forum in this format.

eg: Screenshot - 090512 - 12:36:21.png is an invalid filename

the colon gives the error, Screenshot - 090512 - 123621.png is fine.

It does add spaces to file names, this maybe a problem also.

I use the screenshot app and then load the screenshot into mtpaint,
then under the image menu option use Scale Canvas and make it 599x499
(on a 1280x1024 screenshot) and save it as a jpg file with a new name
and a quality of 50.
It reduced the size of this screenshot from 833.5 KB to 29.41 KB

Because of the XFCE upgrade, fresh manual frugal install of Saluki 022 on my Athlon XP box.Other than downloading Firefox as quickly as possible and experimenting with getting the wallpaper changed things went really smooth. Looking good. Smile

I guess what I'm trying to say is that Screenshot-7.png is more convenient than Screenshot - 090512 - 12:48:20.png, especially if I want to post a small selection of the screen, it cuts out the keyboard and other application from the process, as a general rule for full screenshots, I use mtpaint to size them so they are visible in the post rather than having to open a new page to view them Wink

022 runs a bit slow. It's also very jerky when you move a window, not very responsive.

I'm operating live with no save file.

Xfburn is not working either.


# xfburn
xfburn: error while loading shared libraries: libthunar-vfs-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
#

When pressing the CD/DVD button to open the drive, it opens then closes immediately not giving enough time to remove the disk.

Sorry.

PostPosted: Wed 09 May 2012, 10:02    Post_subject: Menu Listing for Scanner?  

Hi jemimah & All;

I'm still in 021. My HP2400 scanner probably won't work anyway, but I thought I try it. I installed the printer-scanner-core-1.pet, then looked for something in the menus. It usually shows up in graphics. Not there, so looked in utilities, system, and then all other submenus. Nada. Looked in Controls. Used Search box "All" for pets. Nothing regarding scanners is listed.
Did I miss something again?
As I don't have a printer linked to this box, I haven't tried to print anything. But while we're on the subject of using peripherals, can Saluki print?

I'm having some trouble with compositing as well and I think it might be a show stopper for 4.10 until they fix it. Windows with any kind of transparency seem to be always on top and they act weird.

I'm debating whether to stick with 4.8 for a while longer.

Edit: OK the compositing problem seems specific to a multi-monitor setup on this particular netbook. It did exist in the older XFCE version. I think it's an Xorg bug.

Printer-scanner-core doesn't install a scanning application. just the drivers. You should install Xsane or PeasyScan.

So far the only problems I have found is the screen will jerk when using Midori are after until I reboot. Each reboot I get a new background and if I don't like it I change it. If there is not a CD/DVD in the drive at boot then a icon will not show on desktop. XFburn does not work but simple download of Pburn then up and running again.

Saluki 0.2.2 has a few bugs to be worked out but after about 15 hours of booting and rebooting downloading and uninstalls I have not got it to crash. It seems to work faster on my system than 0.2.1.

Thank you jemimah for the chance to play with this release.

Yeah, I think it is a lot faster actually.

I need a few more weeks to sort out the new XFCE bugs and hopefully akash_rawal will continue to work on the the drive mounting backend.

Then everything should be perfect. Wink
