Hello all,

ROX on pdaxii13 with xfce4 (SL-C3100) keeps reverting to its default backdrop (the one defined as default with "rox-bset"), which resides in /usr/share/pixmaps/Wallpapers/background.png.

I can change the background graphically (ideally, I'd like no background at all), but the rotation mechanism keeps changing it back. I removed the line about rox-bg in the /etc/sysconfig/clamshell/scripts.d/x11scr script (which calls rox-bset with either the -portrait or -landscape option), but I keep missing something.

Is there a way to tell rox not to use any background at all? There must be a system-wide configuration option somewhere. Deleting the background.png gives me a very annoying error message each time I rotate the screen.

Alternatively, where else might rox-bg be called upon rotation?

Hello all,

I've searched quite unsuccessfully for a shopping list application for pdaXrom. You know, something where you select items from a previously created list you need to shop and tick them off as you load them into the cart.

There are several such applications for OpenZaurus, mostly based on xml. But if I'm correct then OZ-applications are QT, which doesn't run on pdaXrom. A Gtk-application should run, shouldn't it?

Does anyone know of such an application for pdaXrom?

Hello all,

not having used the portrait mode for a while (Borzoi, pdaxii13 with openbox and ROX), I noticed that the screen is no longer rotated. I'm pretty sure it worked before, but I might have changed something I'd better had not done.

Calling "rotate.sh -force" should always rotate the screen, no matter what position is is, right? Well, it flickers a bit but that's it. The only peculiarity I found is when calling chkhinge. I get:

chkhinge: Case open landscape (so far, so good)
Gdk-WARNING **; locale not supported by Xlib
Gdk-WARNING **; cannot set locale modifiers

What does locale have to do with rotating the screen? And if it really does, might I just be missing a certain package?

Thanks in Advance!

Hello all,

all of a sudden my xfce4.2.2 stopped working. It starts up to the rat-like logo with the xfce background, the pointer is visible and movable, but that's it. As openbox works fine, I don't think it't the X-Server.

Is there a way to debug the start of the window manager (something like XFree86.log)? I suspect it might have something to do with different (beta) versions of xfce4 flying around here. Right now I deinstalled all packages containing the word "xfce" and just reinstalled xfce4 in version 4.2.2. Are there any other libraries or such which might be trouble?

And which xfce4-feed is consistent and stable and suitable for installing xfce?

Thanks in advance!

Hello all,

having pdaxii13 up and running well, I'd love to keep it that way. However, one has to expect the worst. What would be the best strategy to get it back up and running?

Say we have a akita full install, i.e. "/" on flash and "/usr" on hda1. I was thinking about booting into the maintenance menu and make a NAND backup and tar-gzip "/usr" as hdimage-custom.tgz and use that as hdimage after the NAND-restore. Would that work and how do you do it?
