Congratulations on your first dotpup
next will have to be a PET . . .

Did you do it by hand or use MU's wizard?

Confused Why does your desktop look like Win 95?

You might like to upgrade

Hi!

Thanks for this. I'm sure my dear old mum will appreciate it (ok, and me too - I wear specs).

It worked on my Puppy (109CE)... but the magnifier was missing the borders.

I ran it via Rxvt and noticed it had an "Error loading bitmaps".
It was looking in /usr/share/magnifier but my installation went into /usr/local/magnifier.

The actual errors were:

Quote:
# magnifier
[TMainWindow.SetTaskbarIcon] Loading /usr/share/magnifier/icon3.ico *Error*[TGlass.LoadBitmap] Loading /usr/share/magnifier/topleft.bmp *Error*
[TGlass.LoadBitmap] Loading /usr/share/magnifier/topright.bmp *Error*
[TGlass.LoadBitmap] Loading /usr/share/magnifier/bottomleft.bmp *Error*
[TGlass.LoadBitmap] Loading /usr/share/magnifier/bottomright.bmp *Error*
[TGlass.LoadBitmap] Loading /usr/share/magnifier/top.bmp *Error*
[TGlass.LoadBitmap] Loading /usr/share/magnifier/left.bmp *Error*
[TGlass.LoadBitmap] Loading /usr/share/magnifier/bottom.bmp *Error*
[TGlass.LoadBitmap] Loading /usr/share/magnifier/right.bmp *Error*
Error loading bitmaps


Just to test, I copied /usr/local/magnifier into /usr/share and, sure enough, the borders displayed (although a bit pink).

I mapped magnifier into xbindkeys. Works great.

Cheers.

an alternative magnifier program is Xzoom, only 15k
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?&t=2188

this is a roxapp that installs in my-roxapps and does not register with pupget, so it should be completely harmless and should not interfere with Puppy's system files and menu, it should be left alone by Puppy even if Puppy upgrades, all files including the icon are all located in the roxapp directory, so it does not matter what files Puppy has in /usr or /usr/local ... in short, like most of my packages, i tried to make the package as independent of Puppy as possible, so it should work equally well in any version of Puppy

Thanks.
I gave up on making a dotpup for this, it looks like the path is hard coded in the binary. It works OK running the install script in the binary package. Refer to my fist post I've edited on how to get rid of the pink borders.

Thanks Lob, but this one is a no go for me. I used Mark's wizard & some by hand. I've corrected my first post to contain the correct graphic. During editing the post, previewing I selected the wrong one. Embarassed

On a better note: I've got Xpad 2.12 dotpup working & tested on "Freshly" booted Puppy 2.13 & 2.14 Alpha. Smile
