PostPosted: Sat 13 Feb 2010, 20:44    Post_subject: audio stuttering on aspire one  

Hi guys

just popped back to let you know the audio problem I was having on the macpup foxy HD install seems resolved.

I added pci=noacpi to my syslinux.cfg file and everything seems ok.

I had previously installed the latest alsa files as supplied by patriot without any change.

Hope this info helps someone else..

I added this to the aspire one forum too.

I'm so happy macpup is working so well without having to have a USB stick sticking out the side of my one!

All I need now is to find out why skype doesn't start.

Very Happy

I apologise if this has been covered elsewhere but....

I'm using the 'cerium' theme at the mo & when I hover the mouse over the clock I see the date show on the clock face which I really like...
Is it easy to set other themes to do this too?

I'll take it apart later and see . If it's an old style theme I can pull the clock.edc out of it and put it into another old style theme. If it's a new style I will need to hunt through the main.edc to find the code.

http://exchange.enlightenment.org/theme/show/294

is where I got it... I think

Is it something a linux newbie like me could attempt do you think?

I like tinkering but my programming skills consist of cutting & pasting code other people have created &/or applying barely intelligent guesswork to config files etc.

I don't suppose I could help but given I'm skint & can't donate any cash until one of my songs sells more than no copies, it's all I can offer.

Confused

It depends on the theme you want to modify, And what you want to do. Just moving the clock from the cerium to a different theme would not be very hard . Getting the clock in another theme to act like that would be a bit more work but not hard.


How to do themes , Fox 3 already has everything need to do themes ,you dont need to add anything:

that's great...

so I can just use the commands as described in your post to take apart & put back together?

I'll have a go in a bit...

I noticed in the screen shots in that post there is a calendar module on the right of the screen. Is that an option in foxy 3?
Where would I find it if so?

thanks Smile
