Out of disappointment due to the lack of a decent, DE/WM agnostic screen magnifier, I wrote one myself.
It's inspired by Win XP built-in Magnifier.

The attached archive contains 32bit and 64bit PET packages (both built in Fatdog 721 rootfs), as well as source code.

Have fun &
Greetings!

Hi SFR,

It's a pleasure to use your Version 1.1 with the new 'offset' option.

Thank you.

Nice one, SFR. Excellent idea...

With MagDock, I've finally found a viable replacement for 'Virtual Magnifying Glass', a portable Windows app from PortableApps.com, which I've been running under WINE for some time.

When you run it, however, gKrellM temporarily 'freezes' (in fact, it's the entire X-server) until you click it off again. This one of yours, however, doesn't do that.

Brilliant! Cheers. Very Happy


Mike. Wink

Thanks, guys! Glad you like it. Smile

I built VMG once and it's quite decent, but the frozen screen during magnification was a show stopper to me, too.
The best screen magnifier is the one in Compiz, but it's tied to it, obviously...

Greetings!
