known issue --new gtkdialog-splash has a bug where screen position if not top or center is not respected
Please explain, and I can look to it (I am sorry, but I don't understand what you mean). Can you point me to an example?

Hi Sigmund

In frisbee, rerwin has calls to bottom and bottom-right bottom-left (IIRC), frisbee is included in the latest which you can use because a graphics driver exists Wink Pemasu saw this trouble too with frisbee.

When those calls are made JWM does the cascading placement. Hope I'm clear enough, just have to rush out, just caught your post!

EDIT if you change lines 233 and 238 to Y=`expr $ROOTY - 90` #was 70 it works but top-right still shows in center and so does bottom-right.

Fresh manual frugal install of non-pae. It works.
What's up with the gigantic fonts? Had to take my glasses off and back away from the monitor.... Laughing

More testing later.

EDIT:
One click took care of that little problem. Smile

No real problems have appeared yet. Have installed Conky, VLC and SeaMonkey (made it the default browser) and a couple of other pets....everything appears to be working fine.
Pretty uneventful testing so far.

The fonts are 96dpi, it's an option in woof, I changed rox fonts to 10 and gtk fonts to 10, to offset it a bit. Anyway thought I'd give it a try Laughing

In order to obtain the benefit of 01Micko's experimental change to 96 dpi you do need to stick with 96 dpi and then engage all the options in fontwizard if you have a LCD display. (Then restart X)

In addition in Rox filer/pinboard/options/ select "no shadow" and increase the font size to 12 -- you may prefer bold. Then restart X again.

I have looked at gtksplash, and tried several solutions, but the text-widget is hard to fight. - It lives a bit on its own.

- I tried to set a hardcoded width of gtksplash and force the text to wrap at ie 20 chars. The text wraps correctly, but the splash-window still wouldn't be placed to the right.
- The text-widget has a builtin wrap formula. This one works if x-placement is set far enough to the left, but this could not be called top-right if text is short.
- Tried to override with the <window> attribute 'default-width', but no go.
- The only way I found to override the strange text-widget behavior, is to define window size in the gtkdialog --geometry parameter. BUT since this require both width and height this fails when text wraps and need more height.

I see in the code that top(center) and top-right is getting the same settings, so the original author has met this limitation before. I don't think this is a specific behavior of my updated gtkdialog-splash code.

... you got my "fix" for bottom though.. right?


I guess the other options are left in there to be compatible with the yaf-splash wrapper.

Yes I got your fixes. Do you want me upload your fixes in my 'Suggested codelines' thread.... yes, I think so.

I forgot to mention I also made an alternative with an extended gtkrc file to get rid of the <span> attribute. But this had no effect on the placement issue. I have earlier had trouble with the <span> defining extra required space for the window.

Also
Be aware that the bottom fix does not fix the case where text contains more than one line.
